  1. Not really looking for advice, but since I commented on someone else's thread, I thought I'd better start my own just to keep things straight: I get a pre-paid certificate for my prescriptions, have done so for a few years now. I pay by DD, £10.40 a month, I don't notice it coming out of my account, I get a letter once a year telling me it's been renewed, and I tick the box at the back of my prescriptions, no fuss, no hassle, my pharmacist has known me for over 20 years, that's it. Or so I thought... Got a letter the other day telling me that I had got myself a free prescription
  2. Bit of news Marston holdings have lost the contract. New companies who will be collecting the fines will be Equita Excel Jacobs & JBW group. Contract begins feb 2019.

  4. Hello all, I am not sure if consumer action forum can help me with this but I previously made such a good experience in here that this was my first go to. my brother and I rent a 5 bed room flat (only the 2 of us on the contract) but also rent out the 3 other rooms. Landlord knows about this and we do not make any money off it. In total there are in legal terms 3 households (will be 2 in Decembe). We now received a letter from the council starting that this is a Multiple Housing Occupancy. Somebody reported us. We've live in the flat for 10 years. I went on the
  5. Hi I received a parking ticket in May for parking infront of a dropped kerb adjacent to a footway I was not parked next to a drop kerb nor is there a footway. I appealed the ticket and it was rejected on the basis I was blocking access (I wasn't). The enforcement officer took about 15 photos This happened in May of this year In the council's response I vaguely recall them stating they would send me info on how to appeal to the adjudicator which I intended to do. I can no longer find this response and am unsure if it was electronic or printed. I am certain I never re
  6. Hi all, first time poster here, apologies if I get anything wrong! I bought the car two years ago, immediately set up a direct debit and - foolishly now it seems - thought that was that. You all know where this is going... So, last month my car got clamped outside the house, that was the first I knew that my car was untaxed. It turns out I’ve been driving for a year with no tax, I was (and still am) a broken man . I regularly check my MOT and insurance online, but tax - it just never crossed my mind, the direct debit was set up immediately, it renews, so all good? Surely t
  7. Hi all, My dad who is a private hire driver was dropping off a passenger at birmingham airport IBIS hotel. This hotel allows passenger drop offs/pickups only by private hire drivers and is a red route in all other circumstances. My dad recieved a fine i sent off an appeal to APCOA detail that he was a private hire driver and eligible to drop off. No response was received from and in return we got a debt recovery letter. I then sent off another email to APCOA stating that i had sent an appeal but not received a response. 4 months down the line and without a response
  8. Hi all, I am new to this site so please forgive me if I have posted in the wrong place. I have been fined £1200 by a magistrates court around 2 months ago. At the time I was not able to pay and was instructed by my solicitor to state that I could pay in instalments once I had an income to avoid a harsher punishment by the judge who was not in the best of moods on the day. I was advised by my solicitor and court staff to contact the collections department for fines to offer an amount I could pay monthly, every offer I ever made was refused for a payment plan but they kept t
  9. Invoiced by A S Parking at Hayle beach. It is coming up to 21 days ( argh missed the 14 day early window). Terrible weather and annoyingly had checked and flipped the ticket once but then someone must have shut a different door and it flipped again. Company clearly state they don't care about any mitigating circumstances. Very steep charge £100 (£60 if id paid early). Is there anything i can do? They haven't written to the reg keeper yet (which is also me) would i get another discounted period then? The only ticketing error/issue i can see is that the printi
  10. Hi This is my first post as I am really at a loss. In February my boyfriend got caught twice within 2 weeks speeding, once 36 in a 30 and then 42 in a 30. He had recently started a new job on the other side of the city so wasn’t great with timings, not an excuse but still. The owner of his car (his mum) received the letters regarding naming the driver which my boyfriend filled in and sent back. This was in March. Then in mid-July he received a letter from the magistrates court saying he had an £846 fine and 6 points (!!!) but he didn’t read the lett
  11. I would greatly appreciate some advice on a private parking charge I received in the post today from Euro Car Parks whilst using an Esso service station @Esso_GB . I parked in a car park to the rear of Esso Meads Purfleet, and put a timer of 40 mins on my phone (the parking limit was 45mins). I met with a friend in the station and we collectively bought fuel, costa coffee, food to eat and sat in the seated dinning area. When my phone alarm went off to leave, we had not finished eating. A member of staff advised me to just move my car to the front of the forecourt and park ther
  12. Hi All Firstly, a massive thanks in advance for any advice that can be given. I feel a little bit lost in the law and unfortunately can't afford a lawyer so it's great to have communities like this to come to. My situation below: I live in a flat that shares it's car park with the rest of the block. The buildings management has employed ParkDirectUK to manage the car park and they require parking permits to be displayed. ParkDirect recently gave me a £100 parking charge as I forgot to display my parking permit. I contacted them with evidence of my residency and my parking pe
  13.

  14. ive had a ticket from the same carpark and im being taken to court at the end of september, are you able to update as to how you got on and what defence you used? am i able to use your pictures? i parked at night time and was visiting Khans, didnt realise i would have to pay at 9pm, plus it was dark so missed the signs. im really hoping that at the very least i just pay the parking charge of £60 as now the charge is at £300 and i just think that is disgusting!
  15. Hi guys sorry if this is the wrong place but hopefully someone can help me I sold a car on ebay to a dealer who picked the car up and filled in all the paperwork and handed me the yellow slip of the logbook telling me they were a trader so i had to send that part off. This i did via first class mail I also cancelled my D/D for the road tax and all was good until i received a letter to say my D/D had failed and as my car was no longer taxed i was being fined £80. So i wrote back telling the DVLA i had infact informed them as above, next i get a letter to say the fine stands unles
  16. My vehicle was being impounded by the high court enforcement because of an unpaid contravention 34J Being in a bus lane. This was issued on 11/05/2017 and my vehicle was being impounded by Equita on 18/07/2018. Luckily I arrived to my car on time and after discussing with the officer I said I do not recall or ever heard of receiving a fine for being in a bus lane and if I did, I would always pay within 2 weeks. He checked the system and said 7 letters were sent over the period of 1 year, however I received NO letters! I am sure the address is correct where I am living, I trus
  17. Hi there! I would like to ask for some advice. I found a similar case (same place, same issue) to mine in this forum and would like to know what was the outcome. Or I'm looking for some solution from someone more clever than me. I parked my car in the St Stephens car park in Trowbridge end of May. I purchased my free three hours ticket (still have the ticket) and put on the dashboard in a visible place. Shutting the door moved the ticket further down and fell under the windscreen wiper (not fully visible, but definitely there). I had an hour meeting at Nan
  18. Please could anyone help. I’ve received the attached letter. It’s the only letter I have had. I’ve been going through posts on here to try and get some guidance. But just so worried as I’ve never had anything like this before. I’ve gone online and applied to get extra time. But I don’t know what I should do. If anyone could point me in the right direction I would be very very grateful. Many thanks

    Dvla fine no tax

    Hi, I have appealed against a penalty fine for no tax, there was a good valid reason why it was untaxed but of course they NEVER accept appeals, it's just a buffer to make it look like they will listen, absolute dogs they are.. My question is - is that it? Do I have the right to appeal again to take it higfher up? And how fast do I have to pay it, can hardly afford the nearly £200 fine right now in one blow... Can I suggest part payments? Thanks.
  20. Hi all, your advice on this matter would be greatly appreciated. Essentially I was sitting in my car in a private car park talking to a colleague on the telephone. An council environmental enforcement officer approached my window and accused me of littering and stated that he was going to issue me with a fixed penalty notice. Confused I asked what I was supposed to have done and he answered that I threw a cigarette out the window to the floor. I don't even smoke! I tried to discuss the matter calmly but the officer would not reason with me. I explained that I didn't smok
  21. Hi, I am asking this question on behalf of a friend who doesn't know about this website and doesn't have any computer experience. She works at pizza hut and gets free parking, she just has to register her car so that the cowboy company knows that she is exempt from a ticket. Her car was in the garage so she used her mothers instead totally forgetting the car wasn't registered as exempt. Civil Enforcement then issue her with a ticket as it was parked there over the 2 hours granted. She has asked pizza hut to confirm it was her car but they say they can't do anything and she has
  22. Hi everyone I received a fine today of 725.00 to which I had no clue why After numerous phone calls I found out that this relates to a school fine from last year8 -15th September 2017. Now the reason I had no knowledge of this is all correspondence have been sent to my previous address even though I moved 3 years and school have all my news details Can I appeal this as I had no knowledge? And would of sorted it long before it got to court being fined and then not paying it. There are circumstances as to why I took children out of school and notified schoo
  23. Help Required I have received a Pcn fine from a private car park in Blackpool NE Parking Ltd. I have received a letter from above company on the 17.12.17, Saying that was parked incorrectly and not within the parameters of the bay, they have supplied a photo of my vehicle with one wheel on the white line of the car parking space (not actually outside of the bay) they also have a picture a parking ticket on the windscreen of the car. Which wasn't on there when i returned to my vehicle. The fine relates back to 22.10.2017. I have responded to the company by e
  24. Good Afternoon All, Just wonder if I have this all wrong ?! I appealled a TFL PCN, Appeal was rejected and the rejection letter stated I had 21 days to pay at reduced rate of £65 from the date of the letter of rejection which was 11th June 2018. ...' if you pay the penalty charge within 21 days from the date of this letter you may pay the discounted amount as full and final settlement...' I calculated from the 11th 21 days I could pay by the 2nd July at the very latest? I went to pay the fine today and it has increased to £130 ! Have I miscalculated the dates/wording?
  25. Hello all, I have been directed your way from an advice thread on reddit. I received a letter in the post from NCP the other day stating that I now owe them £100 (reduced to £60 if paid within 14 days) for parking in their car park without paying. However, the kicker is that I didn't actually park there. I entered the car park to pick somebody up and left 15 minutes later. I've logged in to check what pictures they actually have, all they have are pictures of my vehicle entering the car park and leaving 15 minutes later. They don't have any evidence of me walking o
