About Me


  1. Hello, I would really appreciate if someone could give me some feedback as to whether to appeal the PCN. Yesterday I parked down a road with a school on, outside housing which is very busy with cars. I parked on a high kerb between two driveways which my car did not over hang onto either of the driveways and i was not obstructing pedestrians or either houses. My car is slightly over onto the dropped kerb, we are talking cm. I have attached photo's for reference, if someone could please let me know what they thi, I would be very grateful. This should be it, thanks. Car PDF.pdf
  2. Atos stopped my pip in May, I asked for a mandatory reconsideration but they didn't change the decision. I have a hormonal imbalance (Hypogonadism), OCD, Severe depression, generalised anxiety and tried committing suicide 8 times since 2010. I just can't be bothered with the stress of appealing the decision. Is it common for people who are actually in need of this benefit not to appeal?
  3. Hello Everyone I hope that someone could help with the following legal situation: Someone took me to the County Court to have enforcement of an Employment Tribunal granted as the original ET decision was 11 years old. YES 11 Years Old! At the first hearing the DJ struck out the judgment and listed a date for the matter to be heard again (the claimant did not attend). At the second hearing, I was stuck in traffic and did not get to the court in time and judgment was awarded to the claimant in default. At the third hearing where we both attended, the DJ heard submissions
  4. I was at a privately owned retail car park a few weeks ago in the evening and overstayed by 10 minutes . Firstly, I am not the registered keeper; it is my mother's car. She had sent me out for a Mcdonalds for her and we ended up having an argument over the phone. I stayed in the car park for a while before going home so we could both calm down. My mother has schizophrenia so she can be VERY difficult to deal with and very irrational and demanding, hence why I didn't want to go home. Result is, I overstayed in the car park by a whole 10 minutes and 14 seconds.
  5. I feel so upset and frustrated. I got pip for a year, then after an assessment for renewal they did not award me enough points to carry on getting it. Before I was getting the standard care rate. I appealed and asked for the mandatory reconsideration but again the DWP refused to award me. Only after being sent out all the forms did I see where the missing points were. I am working with Harc and it was for preparing food and both the recent form, and previous form my answers were the same yet they did not award the 4 points the second time but gave me the same points for the same thi

  7. Hi all, been browsing this site regarding appeals for forgetting my railcard but haven't seen anything regarding a railcard on Oyster (apologies if this has been covered). Travelled from Shenfield to East Croydon on my Oyster today from where I was planning on buying a ticket to Brighton to complete my journey. I'd been in a massive rush to catch my train as I only found out at about 7am that I was meant to be at university at 10 rather than 11 which got me hurrying, I didn't have time to buy a paper ticket I thought I'd use my Oyster which had my railcard
  8. Hi there, I've just realised this thread might be more appropriate in the "Local Authority Parking and Traffic Offences" sub-forum, if a moderator wouldn't mind moving it please? I've received a PCN for being in a bus lane that I want to appeal. I'm not trying to claim that ignorance is a valid excuse, however I wasn't aware I had been in a bus lane until the notice came through the door. It was an unfamiliar piece of road for me and there were a significant number of road works and closures which obviously did distract me from the sign (my own fault admittedly), but there were not (
  9. Hello, 9 I have recently failed my ESA medical after scoring less than the required amount of points needed. I have appealed the decision made by the DWP. I am in receipt of housing benefit at the moment as well. I have claimed ESA a few years ago for a different health condition and once again I failed the medical. At this time I was also in receipt of Housing Benefit and Child Tax Credit and Child Benefit for my daughter, who no longer receives these benefit's but still lives with me. When I appealed the ESA decision a few years ago, I was able to keep my HB claim ongoing as

  11. Due to an injury at work I have been on incapacity benefitfor the past 15 years. Back in 2001 I was called in and deemed fit for work,all benefit stopped etc. I appealed this but went to the Job Centre as advisedand they could see I was not fit for work and sent me back to the Doctors for asick note. I did this but DWP had contacted my doctor and stated that I was fitfor work and not to issue me with any sick notes. I went on to win my appealand my benefit was re-instated. Moving forward in 2011 I was called in for an assessment andduly completed the pre assessment form but at the same ti
  12. I was issued a penalty fare on the buses. The inspector told me it was because my card had not been registered by the machine, then issued me with a penalty fare notice. The notice says that the reasons were that I had insufficient funds on my card. This is demonstrably untrue as I have a receipt to prove this. Can I appeal on these grounds?
  13. Hi All Parked in Brighton last Saturday morning. Placed parking ticket on dashboard, checked it was in place after shutting door and went off shopping. Returned to find ticket on car floor and Contractual Payment Charge on window. Charge states that 'ticket falling from dashboard' will not be accepted as grounds for appeal. I appealed anyway on the basis that: 1. Tickets are paper, not adhesive, so cannot be secured 2. Weather was windy 3. Stated that I cannot be responsible for what happens when I am not at the car. There are many reasons beyond my control that the
  14. Hi, I've just been turned down for a budgeting loan and was hoping for some advise if it's worth appealing the decision. The reason given was that my partner and I have not been receiving income based benefits for the 26 weeks. We have actually been claiming income based jobseekers since early August. I was the main claimant until December when we decided to close the claim so we could change main claimants. Our new claim started the very next day. Because we changed main claimant does that mean the 26 weeks only starts in December? Thanks in advance for any advice you may have.
  15. Hi, We just heard that our first appeal against this PCN has been rejected so I thought I'd better seek some advice before submitting a second one. The story is that: 1) We wanted to stay for the maximum 2 hour limit in a Teignbridge District Council (Devon) car park. Like many kids, our 6 year old son likes to put the money in the machine so we gave him two pound coins but, unfortunately, he pressed the green button before the machine had registered the 2nd coin so we ended up with a ticket for only 30 minutes and no change (as the machine would not return th
  16. Hi, I have sanction placed on my JSA for failing to attend a work appointment and have told the job centre numerous times that this was because I did not received the letters until after these appointments. I appealed again over the phone and received the letter attached. I was wondering what to do next and whether anyone can help me. Thank You Kat [ATTACH=CONFIG]55410[/ATTACH]
  17. Firstly, Thank you everyone for all your contributions on this website, I have read through most of it and it was of real help to my particular problem regarding CCJ. I have a query if you can help and advise. I received a CCJ in April 2014 for parking in one of the sites maintained by Parking Eye company during Dec 2013. The reason was that, I moved from my previous residence and all the reminders and court communication were sent to my previous address including the CCJ appeals form. I collected the letters from my previous address and since it was a court
  18. Hi - I need some advice to help a friend - they have just been through a court hearing regarding illegal repossession of a car under finance - the judgement has not yet been given however from what they say it could go either way So here is where my friend needs help if the judge rules for the other side and awards them money and costs what would be thier next step - as when I say my friend has literally nothing but the shirt on his back I am not overstating his position - could he appeal on the basis that he has nothing and barely earns enough to live on? If so how would he go about stoppin
  19. Hi All, I have been reading through a few threads regarding appealling to POPLA, I am a little unclear about something if someone could clarify? When asking to see sight of the contract between the landowner and the PPC in order to ask how they claim GPEOL, do you ask for this from the PPC to include in your appeal to POPLA or do you ask POPLA to present this information? Cheers.
  20. Hi, I have had nothing but grief for a few years from my employer. A local council. I have put in a few complaints of bullying, being treated differently etc but always tried to just do my job. I have challeneged my employer in the correct process but it is very much an old boys club Yesterday I was suspended on a possible gross misconduct charge of theft of council time and frog marched out the building. I admitted to using the internet but I have to alot as I am the only person that does my job and I network with other specialists around the country for advice. I have to do this as
  21. Hello, I have received a enforcement notice - re Council tax liability order and need to appeal The reason for appeal is - I have not received the council tax bill despite telling the council to send me - 3 times - I was not sent a letter for intent of court proceedings - I was not sent a summons letter - not being sent a summons, hence not able to defend. The property was rented to a tenant who left and informed the council a wrong moving date. I told the council that the tenant was lying and sent me an email with a different moving date and then they did not move ou
  22. Hi there, after a home visit medical I was awarded high mobility and NO care. I cannot understand how they have decided that I have not been awarded care component. I am thinking i should appeal, but i have several questions. the letter says that i can write or phone within 1 month of date of letter. (I have about 10 days left) and that if since receiving this letter we have sent you a written statement of reasons for our decision you have at least an extra 14 days to make your appeal. How do you get a written statement of reasons? .. In the award letter it does say having conside

  24. I was making a delivery on a single yellow line. i received the pcn. I wrote back to redbridge council explaining this and they refused saying i have to appeal to the adjudicator. I did this sending them my contract of employment and letter from my employers saying i was making a delivery that day. I did not attend and the adjudicator rejected my case, saying the letter from my employer does not state i was actually making a delivery to the road concerned and the company office and where the pcn took place is a long way away. To me it seems like clutching at straws, so i got my boss to writ
  25. Hi there, Today I was instantly dismissed following an investigation into alleged gross misconduct. The misconduct in question was uploading several photos to facebook (stupid I know!) but other employees in the same store have done the same offense and not had any disciplinary actions. Previous to this I have not had anyone talk to me about the social media policy nor about the inappropriate nature of the photos. I am going to appeal but I was just wondering if anyone had any ideas on how to word my letter or even what to include? I'm totally at a loss! Thanks for any help! Scarlet
