  1. There are no bailiffs in N. Ireland http://www.courtsni.gov.uk/en-GB/Services/EJO/HelpAdvice/Pages/default.aspx But do apply for two lots of expenses.
  2. Hi Cal, I'd like to get in touch with you, I have been writing to David Ford, Minister for Justice. He thinks clampers are wonderful people and can't seem to find any evidence of abuse, so I have set about trying to find some. I have been working with my MLA, he is broadly sympathetic and intends to raise the issue in the next Stormont term. Of course with the current shenanigans up there, it could be sooner rather than later.
  3. The Parking Prankster does not have a brief, he was not a party in the case. Mr Beavis does of course have a barrister, one of the leading experts in the country on the law on penalties, Mr. Sa'ad Hossain. Although admittedly he should have been up to speed on typical PPC shenanigans, he did argue the kegal points very professionally And how much was Mr. Hossain paid? Not one penny, he is working "Pro-bono" on this appeal.
  4. Hi, Sorry, I have been away for most of the last month and am just catching up now, however Eric's brother is offering good advice, as always. Yes, put the point in a word doc and email to POPLA, asking them to add it to your case. Looking forward to hearing the outcome.
  5. Sorry, I missed that you had appealed from the windscreen ticket (saving then £2.50 in in DVA fees) and you have outed yourself as the driver, therefore POFA does not come into it. If you wish to remove this point and the explanation paragraph then you can do so. However it it was me I'd leave it in there. Each appeal point that you make stands in its own right and has no impact on any of the other points. You only need to win on one point, they need to win on everything, leaving it in there will do no harm whatsoever. If you do remove a poi

  7. This happened: http://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/showthread.php?t=5018879&highlight=pps+popla We don't want to risk another farcical POPLA decision where they accept PPS' fairy tale about their supposed GPEOL.
  8. Don't worry about understanding all of the legal points, you can't be expected to understand all of the legal jargon, BUT just copy and paste for a slam dunk win at POPLA, tweak the last paragraph if it doesn't conform with your situation, but make sure that you state that signage is non-compliant. It is for PPS to prove that their signage is compliant, the onus is on them, not you. In any case, you will win on the first point, GPEOL. The reason why this section is so long is that one POPLA assessor actually bought PPS' nonsense about GPEOL and dismissed the appeal, it took some de
  9. Don't worry too much about the signs, just go for the standard appeal points, here is a winning PPS POPLA appeal, albeit a bit wordy. Read through it, adapt the bits that don't apply to you and submit as your appeal, if you do so it will be a guaranteed slam dunk win. Attach to your appeal as a PDF/Word document, the POPLA text box has a 1000 charater limit. Dear POPLA, verification code 686xxxxxxx My appeal as registered keeper of the vehicle, comprises these points: 1. The intention of PPS' charge was not based on any advance regard to genuine pre-estimate of los
  10. Any update yet? We're all dying to know how Scottish courts deal with PPCs.
  11. DragonFly, I can only assume you have done one or more tours of NI in the past, but things have changed considerably, government traffic wardens and TV licence inspectors now operate everywhere, with the blessing of all the political parties, you would not recognise Belfast. You should come back, it will change your views, just ask anybody who has been to Belfast in the last 10 years. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-northern-ireland-28899153 It doesn't take any courage for a clamper from East Belast to enter the car park of a "gentrified" city centre appartment block, just off Sandy Row
  12. Unfortunately, wheel clamping has not been criminalised yet in N.Ireland. However, whilst wheel clamping may remain legal per se, entering somebody's driveway, or privately owned parking space in appartment complex, to fit a wheel clamp, constitutes illegal clamping. There are no bailliffs in N. Ireland, any enforcement of judgements is carried out directly through the court, not any private company. https://www.courtsni.gov.uk/en-GB/Services/EJO/EnforcementOrders/Pages/default.aspx
  13. OK, well let's say the item is a wheel clamp, and the person visiting is an employee of a PPC, trespassing.
  14. Well let me pose a legal question, if somebody trespasses onto your driveway, and places something on your car, be that an advertising flyer, or a wheelclamp, can that something be treated as a gift, for you to do with as you please?
  15. We will, I do not live at Whitehall and am not a victim of the ****** clampers, but I am helping to co-ordinate the fightback. We are currently trying to get a lease from a property owner that will show if the parking spaces are held freehold, or if there is any assignment of rights to the management company. Even if rights are assigned, I would be amazed if those rights include the right to clamp vehicles and demand a ransom payment.
