  3. My Mum owns the freehold to her flat - one of 16. Most of the flats are owned as second homes (It is at the seaside) The management committee have a rule that the flats cannot be commercially let/ rented - they can only be occupied by the owners and their families. My question is: is such a rule enforceable ? Thank you for reading !
  4. I parked at private car park of my solicitor with his permission. However, I did not display visitor's pass, as I only went there to sign a document and was seen straight away. I never received ticket, app. 10 days later, I've received a letter from company called Private Parking Solutions (London) Ltd. with PCN. The letter was sent later then it was dated. I wrote to them and asked my solicitor to write to them as well, which he has done. Never the less, they rejected my explanations and told me that I must pay or could appeal to IAS, which is independent authority. This company IAS accepts only online appeals, and hence I completed the form and was waiting to their decision. I never received any reply from them. On Saturday I received a letter from debt collection agency UCS, which demands now £160.00 ( initial fine was £100.00 or £60.00 if paid within 14 days and I started appeal within that period). The letter is stating that my appeal was rejected. That "Independent Adjudicators" are actually a private company number 08248531. I feel as they all part of the same gang and only interested to get as much as they can away with. IAS has no telephone number and I could only email them via their website, but since I did not receive any respond from them in the past, I am not sure they will bother with replying to me now. I will really appreciate if somebody could advise me if I have to pay PCN if I parked on private car park with owner's permission? And also even if PCN is valid, how should I deal with the fact that no reply was sent to me and that Independent Adjudicators are private company not some sort of authorities? Is it even legal? Could anybody advise me? I went to sign some documents by a notary and parked outside his office on their car park, which he allows me, but usually I ask for a visitor pass. However, on that date I saw him straight away and hence did not bother with a pass. A couple of weeks later I received a letter from London Parking Solutions with PCN. I appealed and also asked the notary, who is also the owner of that LLP to write to them, which he did. They ignored his plea and rejected my appeal, I appeal to ISA, never received any reply from them, and on Saturday received a letter from UCS, debt collection agency stating that my appeal was rejected and now I have to pay additional administration fee or they take me to court. I email them about never receiving ISA decision, but how can I proof it? Also they never provided any evidences of how long I was parked there etc. Should I pay whole amount or offer £60.00 on basis that as far as I know my case is still on hold and only by receiving this letter I became aware that the Private Parking Solutions are still demanding their fee?
  5. Some interesting b"**$71# from the directors of the IPC. https://www.transportxtra.com/publications/parking-review/news/47254/over-60-parking-operators-join-the-independent-parking-committee
  6. It seems that BPA isn't the only trade association these days, and we also have the Independent Parking Committee. I'm really not sure what's independent about them, but would like views on whether tickets from them should be handled in the same way as BPA members, although the IPC apparently has appeals to the Independent Appeals Service rather than POPLA. Anyone got any experience of IPC members and the effectiveness of the IAS, or views on how to handle "tickets" from it's member PPCs? http://www.theipc.info/#!home/c1j1o
  7. http://www.publications.parliament.uk/pa/cm201415/cmselect/cmworpen/302/302.pdf In summary:- 'The flaws in the existing ESA system are so grave that simply “rebranding” the WCA by taking on a new provider will not solve the problems: a fundamental redesign of the ESA end-to-end process is required, including its outcomes, and the descriptors used in the WCA. This will be time-consuming and complex but the redesigned ESA assessment process needs to be in place by the time a completely new contract, involving multiple providers, is tendered in 2018.'
  8. In Feb I made an enquiry to the Rent Assessment Committee to establish if a case could be brought against my social landlord for a service charge (the amount of rent was never an issue). I was advised to complete an RPT5 form and an advisor would let me know if it could be looked at without affecting the rent. I was assured no tribunal would go ahead if I submitted an RPT5, it would only be looked at. In March, I received a letter from the RAC initiating the start process of the tribunal. I wrote back explaining I did not wish any tribunal to go ahead, to which they replied in saying no further steps would be taken unless they heard back from me. In the meantime, I negotiated with my landlord and reached an amicable solution. Two months on, the RAC have sent me a letter saying a tribunal is booked for June and they wish to visit my home. Looking through the RAC tribunal T541 Guidance notes, it appears I'm unable to withdraw my application unless both myself and my landlord agree. My landlord is difficult to talk to and refuse's to return my calls on the subject. I always thought the appellant (in my case the claimed appellant) could halt a tribunal. Any advice on how to tackle this ?

  10. Hi I am new to the forum I have a trailer unit on a holiday site in Turkey it is in disrepair and the committee have informed me that they are going to have it scrapped if it is not removed by April 1 2013 it would be difficult to have it moved by then as I am based in the UK. do they have any legal right to remove someone else's property. Thanks hope I have posted correctly.
