  1. BazzaS, thanks for the reply. No not expecting sympathy, just giving the full picture of the circumstances around the event. I accept fully that I should have overtaken at an earlier point in the zone which had a higher limit. What I was trying to get across is that I do not feel that someone briefly overtaking in a planned manoeuvre is as bad as someone speeding continuously down a road without due care. Just feel that in the circumstances, the penalty is rather harsh and really just after some sound advice about the best way to approach the matter when responding. Many thanks
  2. Hi, I recently received a notice through the post regarding an incident where I was caught speeding by a traffic officer on a motorbike. The circumstances were that there were travellers going along an A road with horses pulling carts x 2. They always seem to do this at the busiest times. I was feeling a bit sick (currently pregnant) got really fed up of being stuck behind them for miles and traffic queuing so decided to overtake. The road goes 50, 40 and then 30. Unfortunately when I overtook I was in the 30 zone. The road is not thy straight in previous places and there is oncoming traffic so I wanted to pass as quickly as possible whilst also leaving enough clearance in front of the horses. Fast forward a couple of days and I receive the documentation stating that due to my speed being 50 in a 30 that it was too much for a course or fixed so I am looking at 6 points and up to £1000 fine. I accept that you should keep within the speed limit even when overtaking. I just feel that the penalty here is rather unfair. I’ve sent the form back stating that I was the driver and I’m just waiting to receive the documentation where I can write back and plead guilt or not. I just wondered what others views were on this. As it was a mobile officer, he would have been aware that I was just quickly overtaking and not blatantly flouting the law. Just unlucky I think. Unfortunately the pics don’t show my manoeuvre as it’s been taken as just as I was back on the correct side of the road. Having just been made redundant and being pregnant this is the last thing I need. I was considering a casual delivery job after I finish at work and before the baby and now worried this may affect my reemployment. Any guidance appreciated.
  3. Hi, I am looking for some advice. I moved last week (decided to do it myself) which in hindsight wasn’t the best idea. on the day of the move, I was awaiting the completion call (which I didn’t get until 3pm). We were loading, the movers for my buyer turned up at about 11am and were sat outside the house. We left with a load and decided to go to the house I had purchased. Whilst there I received the call that I could collect my keys. When we got back to my old house at 4pm, my buyers movers had gone. Apparently they only work until half four. we carried on moving, as still had a fair bit to move. The buyer had moved next door to her son so I handed her a spare key and we carried on. The buyers movers returned the following morning to deliver her things. The buyer stated I was in breach of contract etc as wasn’t out of the house on time and would receive a fine. I said there was no need to involve the solicitors and I would just cover the extra cost for the movers to return the following morning. She has now sent me a bill for over £1000 and this looks to be the whole of her transport cost. I feel this is really excessive and would like some advice on how to go forward with this. I was going to call the company on Monday and ask exactly what the additional cost was, not sure they will tell me though. Any help would be much appreciated here...
  4. Thank you both... I have also downloaded the attaching neighbours documents and it mentions a covenant from the same sort of time and says - NOTE: Original filed. It doesn’t show me any further documents but would I be right to assume from this that theirs is available?!?
  5. I downloaded the title register and got the following:- 2 A Transfer of the land in this title dated 3 September 1965 made between (1) ***** Construction Company Limited and (2) ****** ******* and ******** ******* contains restrictive covenants. NOTE: No Copy of the Transfer referred to is held by HM Land Registry. End of register
  6. Yeah this is what I’ve done as shown in the picture and these are the available documents showing. I have the actual house deeds, it just this covenant from 1965 which is missing.
  7. Which one did you order please? Don’t understand why the covenant deed wasn’t with the original deeds I was sent.
  8. Ah I see, I thought you may have not seen that part. How long does it take roughly? Thanks for your help.
  9. I purchased my semi detached property about 12 years ago. I was given the deeds by the Solicitor around this time. When I have come to sell my property, I have sent the deeds to my solicitor, I had this email today:- The title to the property refers to rights and covenants contained within a Transfer dated 3rdSeptember 1965. Unfortunately the Land Registry do not have a copy of this document and the buyers solicitors have therefore requested an indemnity policy to cover the contents of the missing Deed. I wonder whether you happen to have a copy of this document in your paperwork as this may have been provided when you purchased the property. If not then an indemnity policy will be required for the buyers solicitors. I have obtained a quotation and can confirm the cost of the policy as £208. Can you please confirm if you are happy to cover the cost of this on completion if you are unable to locate the copy of the document? I don’t appear to have been given the 1965 document and they state land registry don’t have this. Yet I got a mortgage on the place originally so don’t understand why this wasn’t raised as an issue back then. Don’t really want to have to fork out a further £200 if there is any way around this? One thing I did consider was if the said covenant would also have applied to the other property attached to me? The person buying my house is actually related to my neighbours. Can anyone help with some advice please? Thanks in advance!
  10. My partner stopped in a Pizza Hut car park & was waiting for a friend to join, his friend got held up so he waited there. I then had to go to hospital as went into labour so he left the car park having never physically got out of the car. Today rcvd UKPC fine. Is there scope to dispute this. He said he didn’t see the signs, this is one of those where you are meant to enter your car reg when you enter Pizza Hut. Just wondering really if I should dispute it, what’s the consensus please? Many thanks in advance.
  11. I will post a copy of the letter up. I feel that the SAR element was quite clear with the way that I set out the letter. The original deposit was £200. Money was invariably lost due to the lack of ability to work whilst cars were taken into the garage and no replacement was provided. However I have not worked out all the days that the car was off the road but then they could state that this was clearly an issue due to the fact that the car was hired from another office which made offering a replacement difficult for them. They are in Bristol centre and we are in Bristol also. Check out their reviews on google and you will see that this is a regular stunt for them to pull. Cabmate T/A Claremont Executive.
  12. Ok, I posted the letter recorded delivery on 25 May. I basically outlined the reasons why they should not be withholding the deposit. I gave them the option to refund, if not reverted to the SAR. The letter was sent to the local office that we dealt with and also a copy to the head office. No response from either... So they are already in breach. What is the best way forward now please? Thanks
  13. Ok thanks, should I not mention the return of the deposit in the letter? Just raise the SAR with them? I am not overly concerned with recovering other costs, just really want the deposit back. However maybe the threat of something larger may just make them cough it up....
