About Me


  1. Hi I am hoping someone can give me clarification and how to approach as there is a lot of info out there and not sure if regulations have changed. I live in a block of flats where I own a flat and dont rent and have a designated parking spot. Stupidly I didnt stick my permit to the screen and just let it rest on the front and it must have fallen off. Regardless it went missing and last Friday morning at 6am I received a parking ticket from UKPC. I am not sure how to approach and whether I should email UKPC to appeal and explain my situation and hope they take some sympathy.
  2. Good morning. Few days ago I urgently drove my friend to A&E and I unawarely made a prohibited (right) turn. 40 minutes later I drove my friend back home and committed the same contravention. I didn't see the "no right turn" sign at all, so it is completely my fault. I could also add that the road was quite deserted (although I imagine is not an excuse). I am just checking with you if there is any possibility I can only pay it once. I am quite shocked as it is my second (and third) penalty charge in over 40 years. Not mentioning the costs!! Thanks for any help or suggestion. Have a good da
  3. hi guys just hoped i may get a bit of advice on a situation that has occurred today. i sub let an office from a company on the floor above. they have decided to leave in 2 months and i have subsequently been notified. My question is this . I have no contract of lease, it expired 2 years ago we have nowhere to move to and in the forseeable future. Of course i will speak with the landlords about renewing a lease as a sole trader but how long could i feasibly stay in the office after the notice period if we have nowhere to go
  4. Just a quick one guys if you can help. I have just bought a new Laptop with 1TB Storage. The main storage is on D: Drive (934GB) and not C:. Now C: drive is nearly full. Can someone tell me how to transfer space from D to C please. I am using Windows 10. Thanks SOD'EM
  5. People with problem debt could be given a six-week breathing space, the government has confirmed. It follows pressure from rebels in the House of Lords, who had threatened to vote down the Financial Guidance and Claims Bill later on Tuesday. They wanted the bill amended to include the breathing space idea. But the Treasury has now confirmed that help for those in debt will now be the subject of a consultation, and will become law by 2019. The concept had been promised in the Conservative party manifesto, and was mentioned in the Queen's Speech. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/b
  6. Hi Everybody. I'm new here so please go easy on me if I've missed anything. I live in the Olympic Village and pay £75 a month for a number allocated parking space in the underground car park which is managed by Gemini Parking Solutions. Last Monday (Bank holiday Monday 17th) I found a Parking Charge Notice on my windscreen and a ticket attached for £100 or £65 if paid within 14 days. I also found that my parking permit had fallen off of the dashboard onto the footwell. I emailed my managing agent who asked for a photograph of my permit + a photograph of my ticket and th
  7. Hi all, I'm hoping someone can help me. I purchased a house 5 years ago which as part of the deeds includes a single parking space in an open carpark (of approx 14 spaces). Of these 14, 5 are visitors Spaces and the rest are allocated to the houses in the street. My neighbour is constantly abusing my space. I rerturn home and often find her with her possessions (from gardening, house clearance, charity shop runs, decorating in her house etc) stacked up in my space. I often have to sit and wait while she moves it all so I can park in my designated space. This has been
  8. A car park has 2 spaces for electric car charging. The charge port is there and the spaces are painted green. There are no signs up in the car park. There are no restrictions for time etc, I think it is a council car park. Can I park or wait in them with a non-electric car? The only thing I can find that could possibly cover it is the Highway Code: Rule 241 -"You MUST NOT park in parking spaces reserved for specific users, such as Blue Badge holders, residents or motorcycles, unless entitled to do so". But without any signs to say so, I'm not sure if they could say it is "reserved"
  9. I took out a Unsecured Personal Loan with Halifax online in December 2011. I was NEVER asked questions like, can you afford the payments, are you employed/unemployed, and I certainly was not asked about my income. This have got so bad I am currently on an IVA - Halifax increased the IVA from 5 years to 6 years forcing me to pay for longer. I am now wondering if bankruptcy is the best option. Do I have a claim that Halifax lent to me irresponsibly without going through my finances first?
  10. Hi, I have been given permission to use a fellow residents space while they are away and my permit must have slipped off the dash and landed on the floor. So UKPC have given me a ticket. Do I just need my neighbour to inform UKPC that I was given permission to park in their space?
  11. Horizon are incoming at my flat. I have been informed that only one permit will be issued to my space. I give my space to a girl I know, while I'm at work for free. I'm not in it and it's never been an issue. I have phoned the management company who hgave informed me that the block management team have voted on this. ( We have a development residents association, which have voted this ) I'm not on it nor ever wish to be. I know that by parking my own car in the space, they would have to ticket me and go through the process of chasing me on multiple tickets. Ive never pa
  12. Two days ago my niece asked me to look at her 9 year old daughters laptop as it had locked up and was asking for money to be unlocked. She said it happened while she was watching a YouTube video of Britains Got Talent. What she had was a particularly nasty virus known as 'Ransomware'. It locks the computer and demands money to 'unblock' the computer so it can be used again. Like most, this one came in the guise of an official site with lots of police badges and the name Metropolitan Police, it accused her of distributing child porn and wanted £100 to be paid by Paypoint. Luckily at h
  13. Hi, Some advice please. I live in a small cul de sac where we each have 2 parking spaces and also two visitors spaces which are jointly owned by all of us. One of the visitors spaces is at the far end next to a neighbours garden and the neighbours there have always used it as their own private space. They are aware it is a visitors space (because they have told me they are aware) and the deeds state this. No one has ever complained as we like them and didn't want to cause any problems. Also, most of the residents are tenants so unaware of the fact
  14. Hi All, I have recently moved to a quiet village and live in a block of flats in the middle of it. We have allocated parking space for one car and there are additional parking spaces marked as 'visitors'. My partner use the marked space while I was parking on the visitor space. Mind you there are more than enough spaces for visitors there left, so thought this wouldn't be an issue. The reason I don't park on the street is that it is very narrow and if I park there some of the drivers will struggle to get passed, hence I rather to park on the visitors. There are
  15. Hi On 8th December I moved into a flat in Brentford. The lease for the flat includes reference to two specific parking spaces, but it makes no direct reference to Parking Control Management, who patrol the car park. On 16th December, in the post, I receive a welcome back from the Management Company. In it, it mentions how to obtain a parking permit, and I emailed the MC and asked for a form. At around 0730 on 17th December, I received a PCN whilst parked in one of the specific spaces. There are signs in the car park, but I had not read them; I had not understood that there was a
  16. Hi all, Firstly, apologies for starting a new thread. I have read all the sticky threads and as much as I can on other websites/forums, but I'm still not clear on the best course of action. Any advice would be massively appreciated. I rent a flat, which has an allocated parking space. Unfortunately, I was not provided with a parking permit badge by the letting agent or landlord when I moved in. There are UKCPS signs in the car park, but as I was a tenant and had an allocated parking space, did not really pay them any attention. UKCPS have since issued three charges (charges on the w
  17. Hello, Firstly, I live in flats with my own space. We have a Right to manage arrangement with a compnay that deals with our day to day. We had problems with the old company and used RTM to remove ourselves from their management. Thought i'd say as it may or may not be relevant. I went on holiday for the few days and took my permit out for my dad to use while i was away. I got back and forgot to put it back on display. I got a ticket for ' not displaying a valid permit '. They now want £50.00 which has now doubled because of a failed appeal. I checked in the forum and sent an appeal
  18. Hi, I've only just discovered this forum and wish I knew about it before! If anyone could help me in my situation I'd be really grateful. We have been renting a flat with an allocated numbered parking space. My partner parked the car, went in the house without realising the permit had fallen off. He said it was on the seat and still visible. CPM issued a parking charge notice. The pictures show the parking terms which are in the car park about the charge, permit must be displayed in the windscreen etc. In the pictures you can also see the permit holder on the dashboard, having come
  19. Hi all, I haven't been on here for a while but thought I would put this on here in hope of some advice. My father who is the owner/keeper of the car that received the PCN and my mother who are both holders of Blue Badges and in their late 70's/mid 80's. I was the one responsible for parking in the disable bay which as far as I am concerned had a perfect right to do so, but inadvertently forgot to put the badge on display due to having to physically lift a mobility scooter out of the car and help my mother into it. My father in a panic over this PCN started to fr
  20. My wife has received a PCN from a Harrow Council civil enforcement officer, saying she was parked outside the parking bay markings where she parked. This was because a van had been parked similarly before the other drivers arrived and parked. The other drivers arriving to park were also having to park ouside their bay markings. None were grossly over their bay markings to take out a parking bay or to cause a danger to other drivers. Only my wife's car received a PCN. No video or photographic evidence is included with the Council's PCN record so there is no visual evidence from the Counc
  21. My wife entered a private pay and display car park in Blackpool, and drove around looking for a free space. After about 20 mins of waiting for a space to come free, she gave up and drove out. Some time later we received a parking fine for £100 (£60 if paid in 14 days). Their evidence was a photo of the car entering the carpark and leaving 21mins later. We obviously felt this entirely unjust as she never actually parked! We apealed in the first instance directly to Parking Eye, who rejected it and said we should appeal to POPLA if we wanted to take it further, which we did. We h
  22. Good morning, I am new to this forum. I may well be asking for advise where it has already been answered so please forgive me for not searching through all the threads on here. I rent a property which has parking enforced by UKPC. We have permit and vistor bays with permit cards for both. This morning I came down to my car to find that I had been ticketed for parking in my own spot - the reason - 'Parked in a permit space without displaying a valid permit'. The cost of the ticket is £54 rasied to £90 if not paid within 14 days. I did have a valid permit in the car but unfor
  23. I have recently bought a house. It is an end terrace with parking to the rear (private land for which I pay an annual ground rent of £215). My house had been vacant for a few years before I moved in and the next door neighbour had used the space at the rear of my property to park a broken down car. When I moved in I approached the neighbor to move the vehicle he said he would have it removed within 2 weeks. 4 months have now passed, the car has not been moved and the neighbour refuses to answer his door to me. His car is parked so close to my gate that I cannot get my bins o
  24. I just ordered some spacebags vacuum storage and I doubt I'll need any help as I phoned and cancelled the order. I just wanted to warn others. I'm in the Highlands of Scotland and these things are advertised at £29.95 + postage and packing of (I think) £6.95. (both of those could be .99 not .95.) So I ordered, my order wnt through (It's one of those websites that tries to add stuff to your order before completion) and I was shocked to see the total was £42 something. At first I thought I'd accidentally added something to my order then I saw that the postage was £12.+ So I phoned cust
  25. Hello all CAG dog owners/lovers. Could I ask that you spare a moment to click on the link below and have a quick read? www.yellowdoguk.co.uk This is a fantastic, international scheme to help everyone who has a dog needing space when out. Yellow is the internationally recognised colour for caution. If you see a dog wearing a yellow ribbon or bandana, the owner is alerting you to the fact that this dog needs some space. The dog could be unwell, getting over an operation, be unfriendly towards other dogs for a variety of reasons, most of which will be associated with fear, or i
