  1. so parking covered but the only penalty is possible removal No mention of a group of bandits claiming hundreds of quid from you
  2. come on, you have been told to do a bit of background reading and you clearly havent. The only way these bandits get to buy a sandwich each day is because of people's ignorance. My pet hate is people paying up and then moaning about it afterwards, commonly the more elderly do this end there are neurological reasons for this so if the parking co's were bright enough they would change tack on who they ticket and make more money for less effort, just liek the Canadian lottery scammers
  3. Report them to the ICO and also send a complaint to the DVLA about this. copy DVLA complaint to your MP as the Swansea layabouts like to pretend they do everythng properly and no-one has ever complained about this before and that is the lie they peddle to parliament on the frequesnt occasiosn they are pulled up on the same thing I wouldpersonally risk staying quiet and letting them take me to court just so I could bury them in the hole they have just dug for themselves but you might want a quieter life so a short letter saying that isnt my vehicle you muppets buy some new glasses or the sentimetn expressed in posts above
  4. note the last bit "we will recommend" Well I recommend Sudso laundry because they take you to the cleaners but I cant sue you if you dont use them
  5. you can ask the court for your costs under the unreasonable behaviour protocol. A simple letter to the court asking for 5 hours of litigant in person research costs @£19.50 per hour ad whatever it cost you to copy paperwork etc. Ask for this under CPR 27.14.2(g) The worst that can happen is that your request is ignored so worth the price of a stamp. You also have a case for suing CEL for breach of the GDPR ( several things they got wrong). Write to tham and and ask for £500 damages under Vihal Hall v Google and VCS v Phillip and then you have another 6 years to think about whether to sue them or not. again, just the price of a stamp and you don't have to carry on if you dont want to but parking co's have been known to pay out to avoid court again and a proper costs order inc damages. A solicitor sued and got £1500
  6. In short the NTK is not POFA compliant for more than 1 reason. No-one owes them any money, let alone the keeper. Read the POFA and you will hopefully work out why I note that the blurb at the botton about Beavis is not what the judges decided but a cobbled togetherversion to scare you into believeing that this piece of bog paper is somehow legit. Signage fails to create a contract unless payment machine has the same blurb and you agreed to be bound by feeding the machine. No signs at entrance you see.
  7. dont bother with the SRA yet, that should be after the case is either dropped or you have won. Your contact OPS directly, they pay the solicitors to do what they want so will be told what to do. if they do try to lodge a claim via your old addy it will be OPS that are in trouble unless they can prove they told DCB legal to only write to new addy. Lawyers are like taxi drivers, they go where their clients want them to go except when it is illegal to do so and the they are liable for their own mistakes we would like to see the piccies of the car park. It doesn't matter you car isn't in the pictures when you are arguing about whether an offer of a contractual consideration was clear enough. If i ran a car park in Brighton and had a term that says no parking on the moon and ticketed you claiming you were there would a court expect you to produce a picture of your car on the moon to prove it wasn't there? better to show the impossibility of the offer than trying to jump through their hoops
  8. to add my view, you get everything you can together now because if their case is seriously flawed the judge may well use their powers to settle the matter there and then. Now OPS might squeal at this and there will have to be another hearing so if they or their solicitors contact you to agree what evidence should be put forward as a single bundle DO NOT AGREE TO IT unless it contains everything you want to raise at any point ( they wont want to include much as that will show the truth) Yes, do make the point about the abuse of process regarding the demand you pay £90 to some other bandit that has nowt to do with the claim as well but make sure that you have pointed out the part of the POFA that entitles them to only claim what you were invoiced as the keeper rather than the added made up amounts for their extra time etc. With regards to getting your fee back- not automatic at this stage but will depend on judges attitude to their behaviour after they started legal action so their LBA will be important in this respect. You need to find any faults therein and raise them to show failure to follow protocols and unreasonable conduct ( along with the already mentioned fake fees and demand for £400 for set aside agreement) and you will be home and dry. Once they are £150 out of pocket they wont want to lose another costs order, so if they have tried hiding evidence from the judge by not submitting the full paperwork they may well skulk off rather than admit they are nothing more than liars and thieves. So to recap, send your own paperwork to them and judge and dont agree to share a bundle unless you get to send it
  9. their computer thinks it is money laundering. i hve the same problem with one of my accounts becasue someone erroneously paid me over £1000 and I immediately refunded it. What you are supposed to do I dont know, wait until the bank decides to unilaterally take action some weeks down the line? The bad news is that thye cnat tell you what is going on and even when you are cleared of being up to no good you cant get compensation or an apology because it is govt rules
  10. Make sure you write to OPS and inform them of your new address and let them know that you look forward to them continuing their pointless actions at your local county Court, which just happens to be Lewes (even if it isnt) You can tell them that they know how to get there by now. No need to be polite, they have been called out as crooks by a judge so it is OK for you to remind them of this
  11. how long have you worked for the company? if the niotice period isnt in your contract them it is usually determined by a standard method
  12. yes, you will need to know when the holiday year starts and ends, some ar jaqn to dec, others april to march and so on. Many schools and colleges use sept to aug
  13. that doesn't tell us enough about activity on your bank account nor about any other red marks on your credit file. The CIFAS marker isn't about a phone contract so what exactly was the contract for? you say data but that will come under a service contract so would it be possible to use massive amounts of data improperly and then not pay for it? what about your bank account, were you in the red? were you paying funds into the account from recognised sources like salary. Did you have any other DD's on that account.
  14. can you get some phots of the roof and eaves ect without trespassing on his property? insurers will have to amke good if it is your neighbours property that is causing the problem but i would ask a surveyor to have a look first so you know what to say from the outset to get the best outcome. Your local council also has powers to order them to take action but as they wont engage it may well take the 3 years you ahve given yourslef for the house move
  15. you have been stiched up but you really should have walked away from this well beofre reading the paperwork, let alone signing it. However, the incentive is part of the contract, same as being given a free gift as part of a sale doesnt mean the retailer caqn give you somehting that is broken and not make good just because it was "free". so, back to the incentive and the terms you signed. Chances are the terms make the contract voidanyway but we wont knwo that until we see it. give us a good idea of what this is all about and you may well find a couple of people will give you the advice you need.
  16. Agree, you need to start a formal complaint and keep it in writing but also make it clear what you expect as an outcome. An apology and some commitment to better staff traing regarding general customer services but specifically handling of medical emergencies would be in order. They have a responsibility for the health and safety of all peopel on the premises and it does look like this point was sorely missed by the manager. i would also expect them to write off the cost of the ruined meal as well, you didnt paln in advance to ahve one of your party leave in an ambulance so their actions are pretty shoddy
  17. ask for a quote for their removal. you say due to the state of the tiles but give no indication as to what that is. You do need to have something specific to wave at them to get any movement and at the moment you dont. For all they know you could be telling lies just to get a few quid to go travelling with. get proof of asbestos and a quote for removal if the roof is too far gone for repair. Pictures to show what they shouldn't have missed will also bolster your case. I also note that it was 3 years ago you have enjoyed the benefit of the roof for that time regardless of what it was made of. An estimate of the age of the roof will also be needed as that will help determine whether they should have been looking for such materials in their survey.
  18. we will need more details of how the phone sim and bank account are linked and why insurance seems to be what they are grouching about. Start at the beginning, name the bank and phone provider and whilst you are at it go through your bank statements to see if there is anything that resembles what you are accused of. Also look at your credit files and see who has been putting their feet all over it. if you have a great block of red ink courtesy of a phone provider then that will be the link but also understand that you might not have bought a data contract but some other product linked to the phone or not connected to it in any way
  19. they have wasted a bit of time on something that is pointless for both parties. A bank statement is not proof of debt, even if it shows the account is in the red because the terms of the account and any other associated accounts were not included. Who knows, the Norwegian bank may have agreed a contract with you that says you don't have to pay them unless you feel like it and what proof do CLI have that isn't the case? If you haven't paid a bean since 2013 they cant collect anyway as they will have to use UK law to make a claim debt is SB and if you haven't serviced the debt in Norway since 2008 they are dead in the water there, assuming they want to pay for a ferry trip for you in the first place
  20. The SRA should take action but they dont and I think one of the reasons is the lack of court cases to show malfeasance.
  21. I am a bristol energy customer and last month my payment was incorrectly entered as being £xx.72 instead of £xx.73 so the extra penny was added to this month's bill to correct the error. A day after I got the new bill their debt collection people are on the phonme to me demanding I pay my arrears. Now ignoring the fact that it was only 1p for a moment it had already been agreed that the shortfall be commuted to the new bill so why on earth was it then sent to the debt management department? When I spoke to the apologetic member of staff there- not the person who phoned me, I wouldnt entertain giving them personal details over the phone to a cold caller- I popinted out that it would have cost them a minimum of £4.40 at minimum wage to go through with this charade. Do the people who are tasked to harass people not nother to read what is in front of them or do thay as it was intimated just grab a bundle of computer printouts and get phoning people and then have to work on the fly when they get caught out. I think I know the answer but their superiors should be held to account for placing their lower paid people in an invidious position and stop making them look stupid.
  22. You will get a pay statement and will have to fill out a tax return if the employer doesnt file their usual real time records so dont worry about things for now. You cant stop them saying what they want in informal phone calls but if they do say things that arent true thenm you have recourse to law to get an apology adn compensation for the damage done by the untrue statements. i think you are overanalysing this though unless you have been bitten before. chances are once they have settled and waved goodbye they will be breathing a sigh of relief that thsi is all over regardless of what led to this position, they know it is the end so wont want to be causing more trouble for themselves.
