  1. Here you go Mrs OFrog https://www.dropbox.com/s/qikns28v4rmvvnu/New Doc 2019-06-27 19.52.39---R.jpg?dl=0
  2. After a long period of radio silence, PE have recently sent another letter (titled 'Letter Before County Court Claim')! Reads almost exactly the same as the previous demand letter, however interestingly this time there is no mention of POFA. Happy to post up the letter if need be, but as said above it's just the usual gibberish!~
  3. 10-4. thanks for all your help, just also donated a few quid to the site. hopefully this is the last time we all hear of this thread!
  4. Thanks EB... So do nothing, right? Can't wait for the faux bailiffs/debt collection letters! Losers!
  5. Sorry for the radio silence - life has been a bit crazy recently, also in the middle of job searching and other family stuff. In the link below you'll find the letter (response to LBC) I sent to them (wholly thanks to EB of course), as well as the various responses received. I found their generic GDPR response letter amusing (a standard template), they didn't even bother to customise anything. Finally, im going to point out (to you guys) that I never submitted an appeal to POPLA, they are talking trash! https://imgur.com/a/19Uuvn8
  6. Update: so after I sent my response (basically a slightly more detailed version of EB's letter) well before the Easter Hol, after some radio silence I finally got a response a couple days back from PE. Basically a (politely worded) letter this time, thanking me for my correspondence in relation to the parking charge, and saying it has been forwarded onto their privacy team. Happy to post the full letter up here, but just seems like a standard template/acknowledgement of response letter, so the waiting game continues... BR
  7. thanks - i pretty much did write EB's response, just in a slightly longer/more technical way does anyone mind taking a look via PM? so that i can send it within the next few days
  8. thanks ericsbrother, dx100uk, and to all that helped... I have written a draft letter/response to the LBC - however i am not going to post up here (in case PE are reading these forums) happy to send via PM, if you dont mind taking a look and offering helpful criticism/comments?
  9. Thanks guys, didn't even know there's such thing as a certificate of posting! @dx100uk it was PE themselves who sent the letter.
  10. thanks a lot guys, will send them something, inline with your advice. BTW what sort of post do I have to send it by? anything special like recorded delivery? im guessing I need to keep receipts from the post office in case it goes to court and they contest receiving any correspondence?
  11. Hi all, Dragging this thread back up, 'Letter Before County Court Claim' has recently arrived in the post from ParkingEye (following a few periodic reminders). I believe I have 30 days to respond? I assume I need to refresh my memory on this topic, and then draft a response to PE - I'll post it up here for all of you to approve/critique. Is that OK? Huge thanks once again for all your help. Also, should I submit a SAR in the same letter?
  12. Understood, no time-wasting POPLA appeal it is then. From what I've read, I think POPLA appeals being decided in favour of the appellant are somewhat rarer nowadays, compared to say two or three years ago. Thanks for the advice around the signage - have you got any relevant case law examples I could read, to familiarise myself with this? Or explain what is wrong with the signage specifically? The thing I don't understand is - why do the Parking Companies pursue such cases in court, especially if they have a high chance of losing (and they probably know it). Solicitors cost £££ and I doubt the time+expenses of one attending a puny small claims court case is worth the tiny amount of money that can potentially extract from the defendant if the case is found in their favour. Also, a bit of a philosophical question (and I have no idea what the answer is at the moment): does DPA/GDPR play a part in this, seeing as ParkingEye claim to have accessed registered keeper data through POFLA when it has been demonstrated to not apply in this case?
  13. Thanks, I guess the waiting game starts. Having read many other threads on the forum as bedtime reading, the odds are it's only a matter of time before they try it on and waste my energy with further letters. Let's hope I'm wrong. EDIT: Is it not worth rolling the dice and submitting a POPLA appeal in the meantime? I mean there's nothing to lose, and the decision isn't binding for the appellant?
  14. http://www.southamptonvts.co.uk/admin/content/files/PDF_Downloads/Soton%20Byelaws.pdf Does the above help? Clearly shows that the car park (and a huge chunk of the general region operates falls under remit of the bye-laws) - I'm actually surprised that it's so large! Also found a more detailed site plan: https://www.southampton.gov.uk/images/town%20quay%20plan_tcm63-364755.pdf Should I email the council (the planning department) seeking confirmation that these planning docs are still valid, and byelaws described still cover the area in question? Or is this enough? Thanks once again for your help.
  15. dx100uk, you can find the small print here https://imgur.com/KXf2xec I will try my best to find out about the land ownership, is this to confirm whether the land the vehicle was allegedly parked on lies within the boundaries of the Port of Southampton, for ABP byelaws?
  16. Thanks ericsbrother Unfortunately I am far away from the site, it'd be a 2 hour round-trip for me to get there. However I asked a relative to visit the site and take pictures: https://imgur.com/a/bBxgW6Z Does that help at all? Time is anxiously ticking, and I'm very keen to get this out of the way. So is POPLA appeal the best course of action to begin with? I read on numerous sites that merely an appeal on POPLA citing GPEOL gets tickets overturned instantly, and that's without even beginning to consider the harbour bye-laws issue! I've already worded a draft letter/appeal, happy to post it up here if need be, for people to review.
  17. 'goto googleeye nosy neighbors'? Sorry dx100uk, but is there a typo there? Not sure what you meant... Anyway, the car park is the 'Town Quay Car Park 2' which I believe is at the end of a pier, closest location I can give is: 50°53'33.6"N 1°24'20.1"W (Streetview is available but dates back to over 10 years ago, when no ANPR/entry notices existed). Does this help?
  18. Thanks guys. @DX100UK: sorry I do realise that, in hindsight I should have simply said person A, person B etc. Or banana, potato etc. Blame my lack of imagination. As requested, here is the charge form: https://imgur.com/a/Wlsx2aa I apologise for the fact that it's heavily redacted, I did it to preserve the identity of the defendant (in case ParkingEye trawls these forums), and in the event of a court case (unlikely I know). @Brassnecked: I notice from reading a lot of past threads, a lot of people have (successfully) appealed against ParkingEye using the POPLA service, is there a specific reason you recommend the defendant shouldn't appeal? What's the best course of action here? Registered letter (via Royal Mail) to ParkingEye denying any liability stating common reasons such as: * No registered keeper liability at that particular location * Signage not compliant with BPA code of practice * Not a genuine pre-estimate of loss * Etc...? What's best course of action? Should I start writing the letter for defendant?
  19. Hi all, I need some help. The defendant has been issued with a £100 'Parking Charge' by Parking Eye. The alleged offence occurred during the day time on a weekend, and was apparently brought to the attention of the plaintiff by ANPR cameras recording time-stamped photos with entry+exit times of the vehicle registered to the defendant. The plaintiff claims that the defendant spent just over 30 minutes in total at the car park. Answers to the FAQ thread are as follows: 1 Date of the infringement: Late January 2019. 2 Date on the NTK [this must have been received within 14 days from the 'offence' date] 5 days after the date of the alleged infringement 3 Date received 11 days after the date of the alleged infringement. 4 Does the NTK mention schedule 4 of The Protections of Freedoms Act 2012? [y/n?] YES. 5 Is there any photographic evidence of the event? YES, see above. 6 Have you appealed? {y/n?] post up your appeal] Defendant has not entered any correspondence with plaintiff or any 3rd party appeals company. Have you had a response? [Y/N?] post it up n/a 7 Who is the parking company? ParkingEye Limited 8. Where exactly [carpark name and town] Town Quay 2, Southampton For either option, does it say which appeals body they operate under. Letter mentions POPLA Many thanks for taking the time to read... My query is - should defendant appeal via POPLA, or contest the charge with ParkingEye? Some guidance would be greatly appreciated, based on the answer to above as well as potential defense points to the claim, I can write a draft letter for the defendant and post up here for critique before issuing.
  20. My main issue is with the fact that the surrender date (the 14th) is not the same as the end of tenancy date (the 7th). I should not be held liable for the flat if I am not residing there - so, I am particularly interested to know my rights regarding this aspect. Any information on laws relating to this, or guidance would be greatly appreciated.
  21. Q1 – Where is the rented property located (England / Wales / Scotland / N Ireland)? England. Q2 – What type of Tenancy Agreement (TA) is this e.g. sole tenant / multiple tenant / room only? Sole tenant. Q3 – What date did current TA start dd/mm/yy? 05/09/15 Q4 – How long was initial fixed term (6/12/24 months / other)? 12 months, no 6 month break clause Q5 – Does the TA state that rent is due weekly? / 4-weekly? / per calendar month (if so, on what same date each month)? monthly (in advance) Q6 – Did the TA require a tenant damage deposit to be paid? If so, on what date was this paid (dd/mm/yy)? Yes, paid before moving in, 1.5 months worth of rent. Protected under TDS. Q7 – If your query relates to a notice for repossession from the landlord (a Section 8 or Section 21 notice) or a tenants's notice to quit to the landlord, please provide the exact date the notice was sent/received (dd/mm/yy). Notice given 10/03/16 Q8 – Does the landlord live in the same property as the tenant? No
  22. Hi all, My landlord agreed to break my tenancy early, at roughly the 6 month mark into a 12 month tenancy (which had no break clause to begin with). So it was completely in their power to decide on end dates for the tenancy. I also agreed to pay any re-letting fees. I have finally received the following communication from the lettings agent today. So it seems like the lettings agent is attempting to pull a quick one on me, and charge me an extra weeks worth of rent (roughly £200) when I am not even occupying the flat. In addition to this, they want to charge me £300 for the re-letting fees (which they said would be deducted from the deposit). Is this reasonable? I know I agreed to pay this, but if it is an absurd amount, perhaps asking them for a breakdown of the costs might help? What are my rights in this situation? Many thanks fellow CAGers. EDIT: Also forgot to ask - when am I allowed to cancel my standing order with the bank? My next payment is due on the 3rd of the next month, and I obviously won't be staying for the whole period...
  23. It seems that this thread didn't move along much, but as an update I called Three, and spoke to a supervisor. Turns out that the letter (bill) they sent me was incorrect, I paid the correct amount that I owed over the phone, and closed the account.
  24. Hi everyone. Apologies for the late reply, life has been a little hectic recently. My initial post may have sounded confusing, so here is a scan of the bill I received - I hope this helps/is more clear. Any thoughts? http://s13.postimg.org/9yina75c7/bill_part_1.png http://s13.postimg.org/ntgxsnzrb/bill_part_2.png
  25. Hi all, So I had a 30-day phone contract with Three (£13/month). On 12/09/15, I called them up, notified them that I wished to cancel my contract, and requested a PAC code. A few hours after the phone call, I used the PAC code with Vodafone. I was told by the person on the phone that I would be charged roughly £1.30, for a pro-rata rate. Today, I discovered that there is a pending payment for £13.00 in my online banking (for the date 28/09/15). I called up and asked why - Three claimed it was an 'Early Termination Fee', since I did not serve my 30 days notice properly. They also said something along the lines of I used my PAC code before the contract was up??? Could anyone more familiar with this things please explain if this is correct? If I have been incorrectly/unfairly charged, I would like to dispute it. Many thanks CAGers.
