  1. Yesterday in the House of Commons, Sir Greg Knight's Private Members Bill entitled: Parking (Code of Practice) Bill received its 2nd reading. The support that he received was overwhelming (and thoroughly deserved) and the Bill now passes to the Committee stage. Rougue private parking operators have cause for concern. Yesterdays debate is worthy of reading: https://www.theyworkforyou.com/debat...ailiff#g1160.0
  2. I am looking for some advice dealing with the DCA chasing after an alleged debt they say I had with Npower. I paid every month by direct debit and as far as I was concerned all paid off and sent the final meter reading on the day I moved out. I called them few months later and was told what the final bills was £36 and paid off. Now a DCA sending letters, but the company name is Npower Northern which I have never known. My bills had the name Npower and not Npower Northern. Have they changed names? How can there be an outstanding amount when paid by monthly

  4. Hi all, I'll be brief. We moved into a new property a couple of months ago (we're renting), and the agency supplied to the EOn our gas and leccy meter readings. Last week we received the first bill with the estimate consumption and, we thought, it looked reasonable. We then checked the meter reading ourselves for the first time and... SHOCK! The meter reads 27***, while the starting reading (two months ago, bear in mind), shows 21***. From where the meter is placed, it's pretty hard to read the little digits displayed, and we think that the second digit (the "7") got
  5. Hopefully someone can help me find the best product. My Peugeot Partner decided the speedometer doesn't want to work. My mechanic has tried everything he can think of to get it working again. Refurbished ECU, Speed cable, Sender unit from gearbox but nothing. Is there any one on here who can tell me of any plug and play devices that will throw up the current speed I am doing?. needs to be a large enough display to see from the windscreen. Many thanks in advance
  6. Hi. In brief... I drove a car belonging to my wife and parked it in the free parking for customers car park at Vastern Ct in Reading. I left the site for literally 2 minutes then came back and bought a load of stuff at The Range, looked at some wines in Majestic (but didnt buy) and then bought some stuff in Aldi. When I got back, found ticket, was pretty cross, when I got home looked at the forums (which at the time were of the ignore until the NKD came through opinion). When the NKD did come through, we replied and told them that I was the driver at the time
  7. Hi, I was driving back from London home to Somerset, and due to a long day pulled over to the service station to take a rest. I fell asleep in the car and stayed there for 3 hours 22 minutes. They have sent me a charge notice saying I was parked over and above the time allowed without payment and have sent an £80 charge notice for this. However, the notice has a photo of my car arriving, and my car leaving, but no photo of me actually being parked. Surely there is no actual evidence that I was ever parked in their car park, and that I could for all intents and purposes have been
  8. I switched to OVO Energy around 3 months ago and gave them the reading at the time. I kept forgetting to give a meter reading so they used their own estimates based on a 1 bedroom flat. I recently got a letter to say they want to put my direct debit from £32 a month to £57 a month because I was £1.19 behind. Remember that everything is based entirely on their own estimates, so how have they came to this conclusion? Just to add, I gave them a reading recently which was much lower than their estimates. How can they justify putting my DD from £32 to £57? Anyone else h
  9. I apologise in advance for the length of this post. I moved into my property, a two bedroomed cottage, in october 03. The electric meter was the old dial type with spinning wheel. There is a three phase supply to the house but only one is connected to anything. After a year of normal electricity bills powergen came and fitted a digital meter. The next 4 quarterly bills were normal and paid on time. A couple of weeks after the last of these i received another bill for £2582 36. I contacted powergen straight away but the dispute ran for over a year during w

  13. Hi, I thought I'd see what I can do about settling a joint ge money loan taken out approx 7 years ago. Unfortunately I've been reading posts on here and now think I'm in for a rough ride : I spoke with them last week and have a settlement figure of 4.5k although the original debt was only about 6k. I was actually hoping to be able to offer a reduced full and final settlement but from posts on here it seems highly unlikely. The loan was taken out jointly by my ex and myself. We split and had a couple of joint debts so we agreed to take one each, I'm stuck with thi

  15. I recently had a new electricity meter replaced (at the request of nPower, our supplier) on the 10th April 2014. On the meter plus card the guy left it states: R (meter number) 39998 F (meter number) 04775 on the 9th July i submitted my reading online: 5247 On contacting nPower to find out my balance, she manually worked out the approx bill (39952 on 27th nov 2013) and based on the start reading on the card (04775 to 5247) This gives us an overall CREDIT of £700.00. She said it could be a few pounds either side, as it wouldn't be exact. On contact
  16. Did I read that sign right? “TOILET OUT OF ORDER. PLEASE USE FLOOR BELOW.” In a Laundromat: AUTOMATIC WASHING MACHINES: PLEASE REMOVE ALL YOUR CLOTHES WHEN THE LIGHT GOES OUT. In a London department store: BARGAIN BASEMENT UPSTAIRS... In an office: WOULD THE PERSON WHO TOOK THE STEP LADDER YESTERDAY PLEASE BRING IT BACK OR FURTHER STEPS WILL BE TAKEN. In an office: AFTER TEA BREAK, STAFF SHOULD EMPTY THE TEAPOT AND STAND UPSIDE DOWN ON THE DRAINING BOARD. Outside a second-hand shop: WE EXCHANGE ANYTHING - BICYCLES, WASHING MACHINES, ETC.

  17. Hello there, I am new user here, I am seeking advises/helpful tips before I appeal to against PCN. What happened: On Saturday 23rd March 2013, at 19:01 (7:01pm), I was driving along Friar Street in Reading Town Centre to find restaurant place. I was taken into that route by Tom-tom Sat-nav (iPhone mobile version) to take me and 3 other passengers to that restaurant place in Friar Street from A33 northbound. When I got to entrance area, I braked and saw a not very clearly signs post (on the left side) as it wasn’t lit at that time, tried to work out to understand what is that si
  18. In this clip the tv license guy, right near the end of it, reads the occupiers their rights. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2CZtUaWy-3g How can that be right? He's a commissions agent working for a private company so how can he lawfully read someone their rights?
  19. First thread/post in this section - Had new meter fitted earlier in year after inheriting a day and night meter which was read the wrong way round for the first 18 after we moved in (Muppets). changed tariff at same time. Anyway - just rec'd a letter stating meter faulty - checked it and no numbers displayed on the meter. Coming to fit new one soon. What is the protocol for billing usage on occasions like this - inclined to press for bill to be scrapped. intend
  20. whilst visiting an Uncle I was waiting for him to arrive home and sat in the car and noticed an electric meter reader pointing a hand held device at some of the houses, he also had a video recorder. It was a genuine employee as his energy van was parked up - although a fair way up the road. He had a hi visibility tabard on too, which they usually don't. is this a new way of getting a reading? A bit odd, and he was definitely pointing into windows it was unmistakeable I was very close to him and could see everything. Anybody know what this might be?
  21. I've had a lot of problems with NPower recently but today they sent me a bill for the period from February to August. They sent me a letter a month or so ago apologising for the delay in sending the bill but they were having problems with the billing system. However they have the following readings showing on their online system for the day rate (the night ones look more reasonable) 24/01/2012, 6983, usage 0, submitted by NPower 07/02/2012 - 7000, usage 17, submitted by Customer 08/02/2012 - 7000, usage 0, submitted by NPower. 13/08/2012 - 8124, usage of 1124 units, submitted b
