  1. It was prob a offer to settle as cheaper than cost of defending or involving insurance. They prob feel they are not at fault but was cheapest way out. Now, after refusing offer, they have likely informed insurance company and insurance company will fight it now.
  2. Against your vehicle, discretely and they are designed to hide your todger. Sat on your seat in the cab. In the back of the lorry in a discreet corner if no food stock etc on board. You could have peed in the bottle in the car park. Its the fact you splashed your urine on her private property that has likely irked her.
  3. Public indecency” generally refers to acts involving nudity or sexual activity in view of the*public The owner of the land, being a nember of the public, saw you do this. Therefore public indecency. Drunk people pee in public, and are often nicked for it. How about someone comes along and pees on your house doorstep. Are you going to be happy? Probably a breach of company policy. It is a criminal offence. Very likely put a high value company contract at risk. Id expect a disciplinary and maybe gross misconduct. No matter how many excuses you make, this is NOT acceptable. If you were having these problems, you should not have gone to work unless you had the facility to pee with you. Like a pee bottle etc like you get in the hospitals. They make travel ones you can get in a docs surgery. Even if a doc signs you off with weak bladder, it does not give you carte Blanche to **** all over someones land. Its a pub, maybe families with kids go there. If i owned it, i would be getting a cleaning company in to remove the risk of disease and send you/the company the bill. If i was you, i would get over yourself and stop making excuses. Live with the consequences. I do hope you keep your job but i wouldnt hold my breath. And remember, we are not here to please you, we are here to offer OUR 2 pennies worth. If you dont like those 2 pennies, ignore it.
  4. There had to be a reason here? Can we have the full story please?
  5. Im not sure it matters who provided credit. He gave his EX 50% of the balance onto her account and she went and bought the car with that as deposit and then purchased the rest on finance. As long as she is up to date on finance, there is nothing finance company will do and they will just say she is the owner until she defaults. I would say OP only had the option of small claims court to recover money if she wont pay it back.
  6. Just be careful. I see solicitors take on these cases all the time only to lose time and time again. The sticker on the car is not necessary if you were there during clamping and a siezure notice was handed over. A court has already heard one of those and the court sided that the requirement was just to inform the keeper/owner that car was clamped. Regarding your wife crying, i sympathise with you but enforcement is a harsh thing at times and will upset people. EA's are blunt. We are not there to be a friend or a shoulder to lean on, we are there to remove assets if you dont pay. Thats it. Regarding car value, the EA will do a HPI check and that will give him a value. He will work off that and reduce it accordingly for auction purposes. He will NOT listen to your value of the item and is not required to listen to it. You have advused that the vehicle is used by you in the course of your employment at a limited company for seeing clients. That is not a tools of the trade claim. A builders van or his tools would be tools of the trade. A pc for a website designer would be a tool of the trade. You can get public transport to see clients so that wont stand up to scrutiny. If anything is missing from the car, report it as stolen. Taking it to court without any evidence isnt going to go anywhere. If the EA has a copy of a form 2 and a copy of a form 4 for the removal and its correctly filled in, then i cant see fault there. The EA would have added full fees at the removal. The EA wouldnt be at fault even the car was worth 400. He can remove an item over the value of a removal cost. It doesnt have to clear the full balance or even a significant portion. Im sorry, but unless there is something major that you have not told us, you could be opening yourself up to huge legal costs and a substantial solicitos bill. I have seen claims like this take houses from people due to debt built up fighting them. Im not saying dont do it, im just saying be very careful. Oh and if the solicitor claims the writ expired after 12 months, it didnt. It would have renewed for a further 12 months from the date of default on the file, even if you subsequently brought it up to date.
  7. Another writ, even a prior writ, will have no bearing UNLESS the car had been taken control of on that prior writ.
  8. I would agree. The cops love people that get out of the way for them and will turn a blind eye to safe increase of speed to clear a lane for them. The only thing i would be a little concerned with is that the OP claims his mate was doing excess speed and didnt see cops until they were sat 20m behind him waiting for him to move. That does not bode well with police. That said, they were obviously on way to a shout and prob had other things to think about anf speed wasnt that high. My gut feeling, at those speeds, is that your friend will be fine.
  9. I see this all the time but people will still believe that as long as they "think" what has been done was done wrong, they have the right to cut the clamp off. They don't and it leads, in most circumstances, to serious repercussions.
  10. All the details should be on the paperwork left by the bailiff for your son. If not, get your son to ring the office and ask for them.
  11. That's a big red flag there. A family member got a parking ticket and the next thing the car is registered to another family member. Very much sounds like an in house transfer to defeat distress.
  12. Yes thats correct, we see time and time again where family arrange the funeral for a deceased relative where the estate of the deceased had no funds or assets. The relatives or even the friends that organise it then pay for the funeral. Best bet would be to ring the EA(ask the office for his number). Ask him to come round to assess your circumstances. Show him the car finance details, he wont have an interest in that then. If you have little to no goods of value in the house, then there will likely be nothing for him to do but look to set an arrangement with you. Feel free to refuse him access. Its your right to do so. But if you are confident you have nothing of resale value in the house, then its not an issue as he probably wouldnt even threaten a removal.
