  1. Environment Agency seeks Boaters’ views sought in consultation on proposed charges READ MORE HERE: https://www.gov.uk/government/news/boaters-views-sought-in-consultation-on-proposed-charges
  2. Hi, I am defending a multi track case and i have the DQ form: formfinder.hmctsformfinder.justice.gov.uk/n181-eng.pdf Am ok with the rest of the form but it is asking for draft directions, i have looked on google, can anyone point me as what draft directions i should be looking at putting forward?
  3. I'm currently living in a privately owned residential road / estate. A management company was formed last year which then purchased the common parts of the estate, ie roads and footways etc. The company has indicated it's intention to issue fixed penalty tickets to anyone parking there without a permit. This of course raises several questions, such as whether these charges would be enforceable. There are also various practical issues which I can envisage arising, for example, if a legitimate visitor was to arrive unexpectedly, or outside of normal hours, with no means to request or obtain a permit. Signs have already been put up on various parts of the estate, and amongst other things, they say that by entering onto the estate you are agreeing to be bound by a contract. I remain unconvinced as to the legality of this, on the basis that the situation is substantially different from the case of Beavis v ParkingEye, in that the Beavis case revolved around someone who had already entered into a contract for the parking of a vehicle, and paid money to do so, whereas in this situation, a man delivering an ebay parcel to me in his van does not intend to enter into a legally binding contract with the estate management company, nor does the window cleaner, and neither do any of my friends or relatives who may occasionally decide to visit. I'm aware of the basic elements of a legal UK contract (offer, acceptance, consideration, intention of the parties to enter into a legally binding agreement), and it appears to me that many if not all of them are likely to be absent in the situation I've attempted to outline above. Wording of sign in case photo isn't clear.... What does anyone else think ?
  4. Been In consultation, a protocol due soon. https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/472908/pap-for-debt-claims-consultation-november-2015.pdf
  5. A special register allowing people to prevent charities from pestering them for donations will be created following the death of a Bristol poppy seller. 92-year-old Olive Cooke killed herself in the Avon Gorge last May after battling depression. Shortly after her death it was revealed she had been bombarded with thousands of messages from charities she supported. The Fundraising Regulator (FPS) hopes to launch the service this year, subject to approval from members. HOW WILL IT WORK? Users create an account and choose which charities they want to block from contacting them. Each account will last two years - and users will be asked if they wish to renew their details three months before they expire. Charities which spend more than £100,000 per year on fundraising will be required to bankroll the register by contributing £15,000 annually. It will only apply to fundraising communications and not information letters, or calls put out by charities. http://www.itv.com/news/westcountry/2016-08-26/charity-regulator-planned-to-stop-persistant-donation-pestering/ https://www.fundraisingregulator.org.uk/about/purpose-strategy/

  7. Hi all, Im at a complete loss. I got a ccj claim and thought id filled it all in correctly - wasn't entirely sure what the debt was, Im thinking a payday loan that I abandoned. I filled in acknowledgement of service and defended the claim using information I found through researching my problem and using an appropriate template from here or so I thought. I got a Notice of proposed allocation to the small claims track and have to reply in a few days and I don't know what I have done. Or more importantly what to do. Ive buried my head in the sand and Im just at a loss with it all. I think Im getting somewhere with my debts and then I go and mess it all up (sorry I know that is very woe is me) Having a really tough time at the moment with home life and anxiety and this is just pushing me to the edge. Just sold our home to move into rented accommodation and the last thing I need is a ccj causing me issues with renting a place Can anyone please advise? Many Thanks
  8. the law commission has opened a consultation to give consumers greater protection when taking out a logbook loan http://www.lawcom.gov.uk/unfair-law-fails-to-protect-logbook-loan-consumers/
  9. I have 2 court claims i am involved in at the moment. One of them the claimant has supplied the information required and i accept i can continue no more I sent a letter to the solicitor with an income and expenditure form as i am on ESA requesting that they contact their clients to discuss a Tomlin Order. Any judgement received will be subject to a redetermination and probably pay it back at £1.00 a week I requested a Tomlin order instead of a judgement as it would be beneficial on both sides. The solicitor has just written back to me requesting i contact the court and withdraw my defence, and give proposals for the Tomlin order. I am worried that if i withdraw my defence after contacting the court judgement will be immediately made for the claimant. Taking into consideration i am on ESA, what proposals for the Tomlin order would you think is acceptable for them to agree to a repayment schedule to avolid judgement. I only have just over a week as a time line Thanks
  10. Hi all, Our LA is proposing to change waiting restrictions in our neighbourhood, supposedly on the prefix folk use our area to collect kids from school, which is not the case at all, however we do get a lot of white van man up the next road and some local business parking from 7am to 3pm ish.. maybe a few station parkers but nothing too extreme. But my main concern is A) the cost to me and B) the state of the footpaths and lighting locally, and C) this will push the parking to the next available road that has a width restriction to its already narrow entrance that goes out of the estate which will undoubtedly cause chaos. esp for the poor folk that live on that particular corner, apx 100 meters away from us. Any advice please consultations end 26th June.
  11. We have received a N149B (notice of proposed allocation to the Fast Track) from the county court business centre with a questionnaire attached to complete and return. We must reply by the 27th April, the debt is for a Sandander Loan taken out in Oct 2006, but we have received a Claim from Hoist Portfoilio Holding (Solicitor Howard, Cohen and Co). I replied to the Claim on moneyclaim, and also wrote to Howard Cohen with the Status Barred letter. How to I need to act as regards to the N149B??? I am completely in the dark now Thank you Molley
  12. hi every one, New to this website and need some advice please. I am a chaffeur, I was issued a parking eyes ANPR ticket parking front of ( Holidays Inn Hammersmith Entrance ) to pickup a client. The ticket was sent on my old address. Based on the information on this website, I reply the Parking eye and told them that the ticket is not valid and they should cancel it. Also I inform Parking eye with my new address details. which they totally ignored and send me court summon on my old address two months ago. I read the information from this website and defend the claim according to the guide. Today I receive Notice of Proposed Allocation to the Small Claims Track. My question are. Does the parking eye taking the case to court hearing? Do I need to reply to this proposal? what are the odds to win the case if they are going to hearing? Place where I Parked: Its a hotel on King Street Hammersmith, which has a private road on the side and the main entrance is on the side private road. The ANPR camera is at the entrance of the road but not at the entrance of the Car park which is at the end of that road. here is google streetview version. So as you can see the set down and pickup is not in the car park but front of the hotel door. I dont occupied any parking place to pay for it, so why would I pay for it? any advice welcome please.
  13. The price of London's Congestion Charge could rise by 15% under new proposals by Transport for London (TfL). TfL said the cost had remained static since 2009 and it hoped a rise from £10 to £11.50 for a daily rate would deter unnecessary journeys. Transport for London (TfL) regularly reviews the Congestion Charging scheme to ensure that it remains effective in reducing traffic and congestion in central London as well as improving the operation of the scheme. We are proposing to make changes to the Congestion Charging scheme. These changes include: Providing the option to pay CC Auto Pay accounts by direct debit Enabling discount applications and renewals to be made online Increasing the daily Congestion Charge Changing the NHS Reimbursement Scheme to allow refunds for CC Auto Pay payments Providing the option for customers to amend the date of a pre-paid charge on the day of travel Minor Congestion Charge Scheme Order changes This statutory consultation ends on 14 March 2014. We will consider all of the comments provided and prepare a report for the Mayor. The Mayor will decide whether to go ahead with the proposals, with or without any changes. We will publicise the outcome along with supporting information. Please let us know your views on the proposed changes to the Congestion Charging scheme by completing our online survey.
  14. I do hope somebody can help as i am truly feeling harrassed now. On signing the tenancy agreement we were told that we cant get a copy and that it has to be signed by the L/l. Later we were advised that it was with head office. They said that the deposit and months advance has to be paid in cash as Natwest system was down. This was not true having spoken to Natwest that day. On moving in it came to our knowledge that the washing machine, tumble dryer and kitchen extractor fan was not working. The cupboard in the smallest bedroom which my toddler sleeps in has a cupboard with exposed wires. I put a big plastic box in front of it so she cant get access. For weeks i tried feverently to get these repairs sorted but they kept fobbing me off with excuses such as yes somes coming tommorrow to sort it out or that they had sourced a dryer its brand new and in another L/L's garage. They insisted that it had to be delievered on the day and when i agreed and told them anytime. They called to say that the L/l decided he wanted it. When i asked what make/style/or whether it even came with warranty they were not aware. This happened twice. Prior to signing we were told that a table and chairs and a fridge freezer is approved. I had also put this in an email that i requested this but the est agt did not reply via email.The fridge freezer that is currently there is too small it has less 2 1/2 shelves and no tray on the door to hold bottles. Now that that est agt has been sacked they are asking me for proof of confirmation. Around the 27th day of moving in they said that they want me to sign a prescribed information form for DPS. It cross referenced an old tenancy agreement (that they had asked me to sign for but i did not move in on that date as the boiler needed certifying). I said that i could not sign it as it cross referenced an invalid tenancy agreement. They then sent another tenancy agreement which had the landlords wifes' name on it. I refused on the grounds that it had to be the landlord contact details not the wifes. The est agt tried to pretend it was a mistake but it was evident by the fact that she had handwritten that she had gotten "his" consent to sign on his behalf on the last page of the agreement. On account of which she decided that she wanted to create a new tenancy agreement. I told her that I wanted all the paperwork associated with the tenancy agreement. In this agreement it states that the landlord will repair electrical appliances that are in the inventory. However, in the mutal agreement section she has declared that the L/l no longer wants an inventory. However, the day that rent was due he text me saying he wants an inventory done. I did not pay the rent. She took out the section relating to the landlord having landlord insurance and keeps the section requiring me to have insurance to cover £2k worth of content insurance. Since then the landlord has been sending an engineer around he is the fourth person to be viewing the property. I told the est agts that this is harrassment as they cant keep accessing the property and nothing effectively is changing. All of th engineers said that the goods need replacing, however this last engineer has said that the tumble dryer can be repaired and the extractor motor albiet is dead can be repaired. Please note no gas certificate was given until around 30days of the tenancy and when recieved it was dated 2010 then crossed out in different ink and different handwriting. I was legally advised to ask for alternative accommodation as the property was potentially dangerous. I was then advised that the est agt had contacted the plumber whom had the correct date on his ticket. The gas certificate said at the top Landlord so its not supposed to be my copy. I have checked land reg and it appears that he is the only landlord and it appears to be a residential mortgage as he is still registered at my address. Not withstanding i have contacted DPS and they have confirmed that they have registered my deposit but not sent the money and 30 days have elapsed. As i have not signed the last tenancy due to all the discrepancies can they argue that they were waiting for me to sign the tenancy agreement before they can actually send the money to DPS. I sent an email to the est agt and L/l stating that we want all the goods as per viewing of the property i.e. seperate washing machine and tumble dryer etc. I advised that if we are going to lock heads on these non-working items lets call it a day and come to a mutual agreement on leaving the property. I told her to send all correspondence via email. Instead she contacts my husband and advises that they are providing a washer/dryer that day. My husband agreed. I told him to contact them back and advise that we required the items as seen as per viewing and to send all correspondence via email. 10mins later theres a knock on the door and its the landlord with the engineer. She sent the email 10 mins before but never mentioned to my husband that the landlord was coming too. Can they do this? I have stopped replying to her email now as i felt that was the last straw as this is feeling like harrassment. I dont mind paying my rent once the repairs are done. However, est agt keeps emailing me asking me to sign, i have told her that i am seeking legal advise due to all the discrepancies in this case. The day rent was due (i did not pay) i recieved a reciept for window cleaning, i checked the windows they were not cleaned recently. However, I found smugged writing on the window upstairs stating " D**d I can" I feel really harrassed. I was told that the appliances were in working order and that table/chairs and fridge freezer were agreed from the est agt that has subsequently been sacked for embezzlement and i am being asked for proof of confirmation that he said it was agreed. Can I get out of this agreement? If i remain how can i protect myself from harrassment and what protection will i have for any further repairs that may arise? Sorry for the long email just thought i should give most of the facts.

  16. The Ministry of Justice has published a consultation to change the rules for Claims Management Companies (CMCs): https://consult.justice.gov.uk/digital-communications/cmr-rules-consultation-cp15-2012 The consultation proposes rules requiring firms to obtain written, signed agreements from consumers before charging any fees. Currently contracts can be agreed verbally. The consultation states: “The provision of a written agreement would provide consumers with more protection, by allowing sufficient time for a consumer to read and understand pre-contractual information before agreeing a contract.” Under the proposals, claims chasers must also provide “unambiguous” information about ombudsman schemes and other forms of redress. Firms are already banned from implying that consumers can get a more favourable outcome by using them rather than going to the Financial Ombudsman Service, Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority or the Housing Ombudsman Service. The MoJ has now added the Financial Services Compensation Scheme to that list. The MoJ is concerned the use of its branding makes consumers believe firms are endorsed by the Government, so it is proposing banning the use of its name in promotions. It says firms should only refer to it as the claims management regulator. The consulation also proposes rules that will require claims firms to keep customers updated by informing them of any variation to, or suspension of, their authorisation status. Under the proposals, regulated firms could face action if they work with unregulated introducers that break any MoJ rules on advertising, marketing and soliciting business. Cold calling by firms will be addressed separately to the consultation. The MoJ is working with the Information Commissioner to deal with unsolicited communications such as text messages. The consultation closes on 3 October. The MoJ will publish a summary of responses in December with the aim of implementing new rules by April 2013. http://www.moneymarketing.co.uk/regulation/govt-proposes-tougher-rules-for-claims-chasers/1056679.article
  17. Stronger consumer protection laws are being proposed by the government that will take into account e-commerce. It is consulting on a Consumer Bill of Rights, which will update some laws that have been unchanged for decades. Shoppers will be give stronger rights to complain and gain redress for faulty services. Consumer Affairs Minister Norman Lamb said new laws were needed to cover the sale of digital material, where customers have little protection. "The UK's consumer law is complex and difficult for consumers and businesses to understand," he said. "We want consumers to feel confident about their rights so they can challenge businesses when they buy poor quality goods, services or digital content such as music or games." He said the law would be brought up to date to provide protection for purchasers of digital music, games and software. More: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-18831779
