  1. Thanks for the congratulations, support and all the advice and suggestions. I'll take on board all points made but for time being, I'm happy with the response from the HA and I don't plan on taking it further. I'm unsure of benefit of making the SAR? The response from the HA, at least gives some breathing space and peace of mind over Christmas and New Year. I don't plan on involving the Ombudsman, as all stages of the HA complaints procedure has to be exhausted before they will get involved and, at the monment, it's more trouble than it's worth. Yeah, stu007, you can add Resolved to Thread Title. Thanks again.
  2. I've received a response to my official Complaint, HA agree there are no terms within my TA which say cars within the car park must be Taxed, Mot'd or roadworthy etc. HA have provided a written cancellation of the Torts Notice and agree, once I informed them my car was not abandoned, the Tort Notice should of been cancelled immediately but they had to consult their legal dept for advice. They also apologise for the delay taken to resolve the situation.
  3. Thanks Other than saying they wont be moving my car and the matter passed to their legal team, the HA has failed to reply to additional emails and phone calls. I've since asked for an official Tort Cancellation Notice, saying as the Tort Notice is a legal document, then I require more than a flippant email saying we won't be moving your car, either a legal notice with all the details of the Tort notice but clearly saying what it relates to, vehicle, its location, date with Tort Cancellation Notice clearly stated or a more detailed email which clearly identifies my vehicle, it's location, date and saying we, (the HA) have cancelled the Tort Notice which was affixed to your car on the 02 November.
  4. I appreciate all the advice, opinions and suggestions which forum members have been good enough to provide. It's not necassary to say which HA it is, I've already revealed more than I would of liked to. I've managed to achieve the result I wanted, without disclosing the HA name on this forum. I've shared all the relevant details and other than apply to the LR, everything suggested by forum members I had already done. keep asking, gives the impression that you believe I'm interpreting the HA polices wrong, which I'm not. All I find strange by the HA complaint procedure, is the silly manner in which they've named the stages, rather than 1, 2 and 3 but the fact that there's a 3rd stage and, if you wish to continue to offer advice, then you'll just have to take my word for it. My refusal to share the HA name shouldn't be held against me.
  5. Yeah, the email from HA said passed to their legal department for advice. Only fact HA claimed is the clause of my TA saying cars in the car park must be roadworthy, Tax etc and they still haven't provided proof because it's not in my TA and it's not even in the new TA which they want residents to sign. I got the current result/response because of the formal complaint, which they say, now it's a formal complaint they must adhere to their formal complaint procedure. Which incidentally is ridiculously labelled as: Stage One is Zero Stage Two is One Stage Three is Two
  6. Thanks, just hope it's an end to it or at least its give me more time to find myself a garage. After a phone call to the council today, it doesn't look like ill be getting a lock up any times soon.
  7. I Just sent an official complaint saying everything I've already said on this forum, that my car is not abandoned, its declared as SORN and my TA says, as a resident, I can park a car in the residents car park and the clause the HA quotes, saying my car must be roadworthy, tax, mot'd and insured is not stated in my TA. I also said government legislation allows a car owner to declare a vehicle as SORN to the DVLA as long as it's taken off the road I've followed this legislation and ensured the car park is private property and doesn't form part of the adopted highway. I also included the contact details of everyone I spoke to at the local council and the Police. I also said, I don't authorise the removal of my car as the HA doesn't have the lawful authority to remove sell or destroy my car without my consent and I will hold the HA liable for any loss and or, any additional cost incurred and or, any damaged caused as a result of its removal. I've not had a letter from HA solicitors yet. Just that this matter has been passed onto the legal team.
  8. I can assure you nothing more had happened, I complained in writing by letter got no reply, complained again, still no reply, so I sent another letter, this time to a different address, which turned out to be that of a trustee and other than the follow up phone calls, thats it. Some months after the Police warning, I got a letter from the governing body saying organisation been shut down due to bad practice. I never pursued it.
  9. Yes I agree, but they did and no matter what I said, it was because I'd written to a trustee at her home address It's easy says I should tell them it's nothing to do with them but in the heat of the moment, I thought they were going to arrest me in front of my family, and the neighbours which had gathered outside, I guess because of the Police cars
  10. The Police said I must follow official complaint procedure and not be writing to or phoning a trustee at their home. Although, over the years I felt aggrieved enough to complain and have made a few complaints, official and otherwise, I don't know the full ins and outs of what's acceptable and what isn't, that's one of the reasons why I posted on here. The Police turning up how they did, although years ago now, makes me all the more cautious, I didn't like it and it was embarraasing.
  11. Thanks for the replies. Reason I said what I did about harassment of trustees, it's because, I was issued with a harassment warning for contacting a trustee. I've since discovered I didn't have to sign or acknowledge it. I was unhappy with the services of a NHS appointed organisation which has since been shut down by its governing body for bad practice, and I had unwittingly wrote to a trustee and followed it up with a phone call. During the call, the trustee was annoyed I had written to her home address and phoned her home but suggested I call another number and leave a message, which I did. Within hours, 2 Police cars arrived and four Police officers where at my door. I was told not to contact the trustee again and I foolishly signed the harassment warning although I didn't think I'd done anything wrong. I guess I was overwhelmed by the presence and attitude of the Police. The trustee had cunningly asked me to leave a message at another number and this, with the letter (not email) was enough for the Police to issue a warning. I dont want to endure that again and I certainly don't want another warning.
  12. 11th hour repreive. Received a flippant email from HA, very little detail but says my car will not be removed as indicated on the Torts Notice and matter been passed to legal team for further advice.
  13. Yes its drivable and its certainly not a lump of scrap metal and I don't see why I should just give up. As for only getting scrap value if HA do take my car, is this your opinion or can you prove this. My TA clearly says I can park my car in the car park with no terms or sub sections that says my car must be roadworthy, taxed, Mot'd and insured. I've given all the details on this forum to the best of my knowledge. Other than who owns the land, whats been asked numerous of times that I've not answered ? I've said what the Tort notice says and reasons why the HA issued it. When I told the HA my car is not abandoned, declared as SORN and on private property, so doesn't need road tax, thats when HA said the terms of my TA says my car must be roadworthy, taxed, Mot'd and insured when parked in the residents car park. My car is parked in a residents car park outside my home, just a normal car park, no permit needed or allocated space, just park anywhere without blocking entrances or causing obstruction. I can't just write to Trustees of the HA/charity at their personal addresses, that could be seen as harassment and getting a warning from the Police, which won't help. I have no choice but follow a complaint procedure which must be exhausted before I can turn to Housing Ombudsman but I'd rather it not get that far. By posting on here, I was looking for specific legislation which I could send to the HA to stop the Tort Notice, but nothings been suggested. I've already said why I've not applied to the Land Registry due to time constraint.
  14. I was convinced I held all the cards as the clause HA say is in my TA isn't, but still no reply. even after formal complaint today. If it was for any other reason, why issue the Tort notice saying abandoned / untaxed car and only quoting a term which HA says is in my TA ? Only reason I haven't contact Land Registry is not because of my awkwardness but due to time constraint, HA didn't reply to my calls and emails for 19 days (not 13) and because Tort notice says abandoned/untaxed, I thought it was just a matter of saying to HA, don't worry, it's not abandoned and its SORN, job done. I certainly didn't expect such a heavy handed approach, especially as I've lived here for 16 years without issues. I can't understand why HA didn't write to me first to discuss it rather than just slap a Tort notice on it. By time I posted on here and told to find out who the landowner is, and after speaking to the Land Registry, I only have 4 or 5 days before the Tort notice expires and the first application to Land Registry for type of search I need, has to be sent in by post and I assumed returned to me by post. I didn't know of the importance or difference it will make knowing who owns the land but it seems that if HA dont own land I'm in a worse position ? My car is not some old wreck with flat tires, it's old but a future classic and other than the repair for its MOT, which cant be seen unless on a ramp and you know what you're looking at, it looks no different to any other car. One of my neighbour has a old wreck, not as old as my car but it's a absolute mess, looks like a wing, rear light and exhaust are hanging off, either tied on or stuck on with tape, it supposedly called a rat look car but engine, brakes, suspension are all top notch, well looked after and no expense spared and his car not classed as abandoned.
