  1. Hello everyone, I have recently issued a small claim against a company, but do not want to go through with it any further. The defendant did issue a defence and requested for Mediation, but subsequently changed their mind. I was wondering if I can still issue a Notice of discontinuance (N279) form before the case being allocated to a track? If yes, which court do I write down? Should I send this via post to the Money Claims centre in Manchester or via email? I have been utilising the new beta Money Claims service, which does not provide information on the matter. I wa

  4. Hi All Im looking for some advice on this one. Back on 20/12/17 i went to park on a carpark behind some shops previously this was an actual carpark for use of shoppers. As i went into the entrance of carpark i noticed a sign on the wall on right hand side as you enter the carpark so i pulled to the left hand side to read it (The entrance is an ally way between 2 shops as shown in my Picture There is no signs visible until you enter the carpark) It said that the carpark is now for gym use and to check terms and conditions in the carpark I left my car where it was which wasn
  5. The story: For months I had parked in a pay and display car park - £3.50 for all day Last August, they changed the machines and put up new signs stating you had to enter your registration number. (I now realise they had switched to ANPR enforcement) Shortly after, I paid for the parking using their new machines. I followed the instructions, entering the registration in full and pressing OK. However, I now know that if you enter the information quickly, the button presses do not all register because the machine is slow to process each key stroke. To make i
  6. Hi I've received a 'letter before county court claim' from ParkingEye regarding an unpaid ticket and I would like your opinion and advice please. I like to think it's just scare tactics but I want to be sure. I parked on a Tesco car park, supposedly overstayed (3 hours on a 2 hour max stay. I disputed the ticket with a POPLA template I found here that at CAG that said I don't acknowledge the debt, don't have to name the driver, and that I will defend myself at POPLA if need be. This has worked the other times I've had tickets but this time I've received a new and differe
  7. Hi all, Been a while since I've been on here. Have received a letter before action from Kearns on behalf of link financial for an old MBNA credit card debt. The debt is circa 2007. I haven't been chased on this or had any correspondence on this or made any payments on this for over 6 years for sure. I have attached a copy of the letter. Please advise course of action? If I am honest, I have moved address and Link have recently chased me for another one and I feel they are phishing on this one as I basically disappeared for 6 years. Letter attached for advice.
  8. I have just discovered this site and forums, and fear I have made a terrible hash of dealing with Erudio with regard to my own and my husband's old Student loans (My own: 1 from 1990 (unsigned by SLC) for £420 but due to 9.8% interest (!!!!) now over £800 and really should have been written off had Erudio not been involved; and my husband's: 4 from 1993, 1994, 1995 and 1996 respectively and over £5,000). We had been happily deferring re-payment of these loans over the years until Erudio took over. The first inkling that we had that they had been sold to a bunch of debt collector
  9. I'm with Scottish Power pre-payment meter with key. Put £15 on card as usual. The gas meter read "error call help". So rang up and had the gas machine replaced with a new one. The person on the phone said they'll give me +£10 credit. Got new card in the mail later. Placed £5 to test. No extra +£10 credit, just the £5 I put on, and I still have the receipt of the original £15 and the old card. What are my options if they say they can't do anything about the £15? Not too bothered about the promised credit.
  10. When I was caught using my mom's freedom pass, 'the caution' was read to me AFTER I answered all the questions and was asked to sign the notes. I was NOT asked to review the notes just to sign. Is it how it is supposed to be done? After the questions and my signature the caution followed and I just felt sick. The officer offered free legal advice but I refused because I was mentally and physically unable to continue. Can I still request free legal advice should I go to court? I think I wasnÂ’t informed that I DID NOT have to answer the questions WITHOUT
  11. Hello CAG, I have received Letter Before Claim. Briefly will explain how does it happen. In 2017 23rd December me and my friend decided to do surprise for our fried who lives faraway, more then 140 miles from us. In car park (car par is allocated to block flats where lives our friend) we arrived in late evening around 10pm and park on visitor parking space. Due to late evening and Christmas hustle I did not saw any of Private land parking sign. In a next day 24/12 Christmas day our friend ( flat owner ) released that we need parking permit to stay in visitor parking. She wa
  12. Cabot purchased a debt, the original debt was either m&s credit card or tesco credit card,i think. I have ignored all letters. I suspect its almost (if not) statute barred by now. (need to dig out files to check this) I now have received a letter before claim and reply form, from Cabots solicitors, mortimer cooke. Not sure whether to reply, is it bonafide? a scare tactic, or will no response get me a ccj? Any guidance will be very appreciated.
  13. Hi! This is my first post so please bear with - also @ mods/admins if this isn't quite the right section please move me! I've recently been told I have been made redundant and have 2 weeks left until I am out. I've talked with everyone I have monthly payments to and cut back as much as possible, but I'm a bit concerned about my car's finance. I can get a temporary part time job at a friend's business that will just about pay for the car (part time, about £750 a month so will get about 550after taxes, etc according to income-tax.co.uk) but I do not know if that's the best thing
  14. Hello all, I received a letter today in the post from Gladstone solicitors requesting for £160. I checked online at HX car park's website the PCN quoted on the letter does not exist as it is not recognised. So I called the solicitors as they said to if matters needed to be discussed. Called to find out why there's a charge for a parking that was paid for and why no PCN issued and why is this the first time they can contacting seeing as date of charge is 04/03/2018. In which she responded rudely that they sent a letter in June and they are acting on behalf of HX Car management
  15. Hi - first post. https://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?485544-VCS-windscreen-PCN-Scotland-Disabled-Badge-on-floor-opps-i-have-told-them-i-was-driving-help Have received today exactly the same letter as post 52 above, relating to an alleged PCN in Dundee on 7 December 2015. I have a vague recollection of there being a PCN in the location a long time ago but am sure I haven't had any reminders since, so it's odd to have this final demand before court action 2.5 years later. Maybe the Carly thingy case has got them excited, as they mention that although
  16. Hi - I have received a PCN for an alleged "Failing to Comply with a No Entry Restriction". It is not quite straight forward and I would appreciate any guidance please on my chances of appeal? I started my turn into a wide side road when I noticed it was a Non Entry. I decided not to enter and was able to continue my drive straight out again as the entrance to the No-Entry road is huge (width of several lanes - and hardly any traffic as it was 11pm). The front of my car would probably have veered across the double white lines across the side road, But I was able to continue to d
  17. Hi everyone My brother has received a letter today from the county court business centre that was headed Judgement for Claimant (in default) It says you have not replied to the claim form (never received anything from the claimantt E-On) It is therefore ordered that you must pay the claimant £727.27 for debt and interest to date of judgement and £60 for costs. My brother has never received any court papers or even letters threatening court. But now he’s had this in the post. I’ll upload a scan of it but I’m not sure how to respond to the court document. Any help would be g
  18. Hi All, Just a little advice please. I had a works pension that was frozen some 8 years before I got married. My wife and I are going trough divorce and she seems interested in some of this pension. Question is as the pension was paid into and frozen before we married is she entitled to some of it? I am retired and disabled and claiming pension credit + enhanced PIP and Enhanced Mobility. the pension she is looking to have part of pays £42.27/Month She is 58 and due to retire at 67. She has a work p\lace pension and she earns around 1,500/month her new partner
  19. Hi everyone, I have been away from home for quite some time and I had checked my letters to see that I have received 3 letters from Euro Parking Services about not being parked correctly in a parking bay. The letters had started from £60, £100 and now £160. The driver states the signs (of both the parking signs and the parking bays) were not clear at the time of when they were there or else they would not have parked there at all. The driver was there for a maximum of 5 minutes as the passenger had went into the tesco express. The visibility of day was poor as it was ra
  20. Evening All, First of all I'd really like to thank you all for viewing my post and secondly I'd very much appreciate any advice you might be able to offer.

  21. Hi, I think I have made a minor mistake - a Ltd company owes us (we are also Ltd company) for an unpaid invoice. The invoice has been unpaid since April, we sent a letter before action by email: I copied this text from something I found online, the number of days was blank so I just put 7 in there thinking it was reasonable. Anyhow I have now read the pre action conduct page here https://www.justice.gov.uk/courts/procedure-rules/civil/rules/pd_pre-action_conduct And they mention 14 days. ooops. As the 7 days has elapsed do you think I should send another letter givin
  22. Hello Back in June 2017 we had a letter stating due to income (loads of overtime) we had been overpaid tax credits and payments would stop. In August another letter stating that overpayments of £2800 had been received but a final decision would be made. Final decision made and we are now facing a demand for this amount. I have checked through our finances and this seems correct, they want all of 2016 -17 back and the few months of this years. I have read through many of the threads about this and the advice is generally not to phone them, in this case I guess it's ok jus
  23. Hi, I joined a local gym on an offer that stated 3 months at £9.99. I went regularly for a month and a bit but the parking was shambolic and they had about 5 spaces and the rest was on street parking in a busy area and eventually i got bored of hunting for spaces to go to the gym. I eventually tracked down the portal and it had barely any information on it and no way to cancel. Having been on a Harlands membership before or so i thought with Simply Gym i did what i had been told by them and cancelled the membership. After the last payment should have gone out i received a text a
  24. Hi I wonder if anyone can give some advice please I had a personal loan in 2006 for around £6000 which regularly paid for two years. Unfortunately 2008 I was diagnosed with cancer and had to go to hospital for various ops etc As 1 was unable to work I fell behind with the payments and was defaulted. I then set up a repayment plan with the dept collector of £5 a month in which I paid for around three years I then stopped paying when I discovered that the credit collect had to prove the dept. I then received court summons from Cabot in he post in late 2016.
  25. Hi, Having aggravation with a second hand car purchase (in another thread). Feeling a bit of financial pressure. Need to get to Stansted Airport so I thought I'd give a One-way for a £1 rental a go. No luck here either it seems. Booked and paid for a £1 one-way rental from Europcar. Online booking was a bit slow but seemed to go ok. Got a confirmation back and all looked fine. 48hrs before I'm due to pick up I get 2 emails saying don't forget to prepare for your rental and please remember your driving licence etc. 3p.m. today, (19hrs before) scheduled pick-up I get a call f
