  1. Hi again, Appears the address change was noted and they've decided to use a different firm? Do I need to actually respond to this one? Thanks in advance. Letter.pdf
  2. Hi there, Couple of things - it's been a fair while of having debt collection letters through every 4-6 weeks or so. Have just had a letter (attached) through from Gladstones Solicitors which appears to essentially be the same as the debt recovery letters (i.e. no actual court action as yet). I presume I just need to sit on this until they actually take the case on? Additionally I am looking to move house in the near future - I'm aware I need to ensure that whoever is chasing me has my latest contact details so I don't get a CCJ against me without knowing - how is best to go about this? Do I just send whichever debt agency/solicitor firm a letter saying what my new address is and for all further information to be sent there? Thanks in advance (and apologies it's not a scanned image, I don't have (and can't really afford) a scanner at home) gladdy letter.pdf
  3. Apologies - have not been able to carry out as extensive reading as I perhaps should have - wasn't fully aware of the distinction between the debt recovery letter and the letter I should expect at some point from their lawyers. I have a bit of free time this weekend (for the first time in a while!) so will have a look at some other posts. Thanks for your help so far & apologies again for my current ignorance!
  4. Hi ericsbrother, So I ignore it and wait until I hear again then? Thanks
  5. Whoops, I wasn't aware of that, no! Thanks! Re-edited and attached as a PDF. DR+.pdf
  6. Hi again, just had this through the post today (sorry about the poor lighting), what do I reply with? Thanks in advance!
  7. Presume I wait for them to try take it further and come back here then?
  8. Hiya, Just got a rejection through the post as attached. It seems odd to me that they deny the opportunity for the keeper to appeal, but in any case - any and all suggestions welcome. Thanks in advance.
  9. Ok, that's great, thanks - will draft a letter saying that and post it next time I'm near a post box! Will be back on here when they reject the appeal... P.S. I often think my parents don't deserve my visits!
  10. Came home to find the below on my doormat...do I appeal to the IAS?
  11. Tenancy agreement, no mention of parking. Also from tenancy agreement Parents are unhappy to contact HA on this as they are concerned it might harm their tenancy...think am unlikely to be able to persuade otherwise... Does implementing the parking enforcement constitute a change to their agreement? If so this surely can't be made without expressed agreement from the tenants (my parents)?
  12. Ok, I have my parents back on looking for the tenancy agreement - they have a handbook which doesn't mention parking anywhere. What exactly do I need to get the 'rents to ask the HA for? the letter confirming that they had engaged the services of a parking enforcement company? You say I should ignore an see what they do, but also not to sit on it - presume that's if I get any more correspondence? Of course if I get anything more I'll be straight back on here! Hopefully have some tenancy agreement info in the next day or so. Thanks
  13. Sorry it's taken a while - sign attached, can't locate the tenancy agreement unfortunately.
  14. Ta! I did indeed, and it all made perfect sense...
  15. Fair enough, still trying to get an image of the signage in case that helps, but otherwise will just post back to them.
  16. They do say that you shouldn't pay in cash/send cash in the post, is it a requirement that they accept alternative payment when they have card fees? Is it worth paying a few quid to get insured for the sum of the supposed contents as a way of "proving" what was sent or is that too close to insurance fraud?
  17. Hi ericsbrother, Have asked parents to dig out tenancy agreement - this particular parking regime was introduced in 2015 I believe (parents have been there since '98) after a consultation. Believe there was some kind of enforcement at the start too. I will get an image of the signage and post it as soon as possible.
  18. Hi there, Went to visit parents over Christmas and got slapped with a speculative invoice on Boxing day! Form filled in below and images of letter attached. 1 The date of infringement? 26/12/16 2 Have you yet to appeal to the parking company? Not yet Have you received a Notice To Keeper? (NTK) [must be received by you between 29-56 days] what date is on it? - Yes? It calls itself a parking charge notice rather than an NTK though, dated 25/01/2017 Did the NTK provide photographic evidence? Yes - redacted 3 Did the NTK mention Schedule 4 of the Protection of Freedoms Act 2012 (PoFA)? Not that I can see, no. 4 If you appealed after receiving the NTK, did the parking company give you any information regarding the further appeals process? Haven't appealed as yet 5 Who is the parking company? Park Direct 6. where exactly [Carpark name and town] did you park? Clement Attlee Estate, Fulham, London (John Smith Avenue) - this is the housing association side of the estate and is privately controlled parking, not the council side. What advice do you have? The letter suggests that you cannot appeal to them as the driver was given the opportunity to do so, surely that isn't right? Additionally they do not offer the same discounted rate as they do on the windscreen ticket. My parents are entitled to apply for a permit for the area but neither of them drive and there is no provision for visitors and you have to have everything registered there to get a permit (I don't live there any more!). There were ample empty parking spaces available on the estate at the time. Additionally, those who are fortunate enough to have landed in houses with an off road drive are entitled to use that without a permit and apply for a permit for the surrounding spaces (surely not just?) Any and all help welcomed! Thanks!
  19. Okey doke - noted, will post it out tomorrow and come back when I hear more. Cheers folks.
  20. Hi, Thanks for the advice - so if I go back to them at the email address supplied (cpo@vehicle control.co.uk) and say something like... I recently received a notice to keeper/driver ref no xxxxx dated xxxxx. I do not recognise this charge - VCS have not complied with with the Protection of Freedoms Act and as such must withdraw the charge immediately. If you progress this matter further I will be forced to counterclaim under the decision of VCS vs Philip. Sincerely... In their appeal notes they also ask for the PCN ref number and any supporting information/evidence which would be a copy of the PCN - do I provide them with these or does that just serve to confirm I received it? Thanks again!
  21. Will post images when I get back in from work this eve.
  22. Hullo again - just received the NTK today, where do I go from here? Thanks in advance!
  23. Cool, that sounds good - thanks, here's hoping they're as incompetent as their wardens and I don't hear from them ever again!
