    • Nope       .. unless he knows something we don't yet know - but maybe has been hinted at Particularly with his mention of vaccinators sitting around doing nowt in the near future ..
    • ' what i will guess because BCD(L) is rather new to the game, they've not yet found out they can all but ignore the earlier date.   this has ofcourse give you a huge advantage.'     Thankyou.   Lol, lets hope thats the case. Unless they are much smarter than all of us and called a bluff.   In their email they say please find attached our bundle, a cop which has been filed at the court.   The bluff could be that they haven't filed it at the court by the earlier date, but they hope hope that I submit mine by the first deadline, which I have now done. Gives them a chance to look at my WS, make any changes to theirs and then actually use the later date to file their papers at the court, having had the benefit of looking at my WS     Who knows, these solicitors maybe me smarter poker players than we thinkk lol
    • well lets hope this time you see it through..not get help and disappear for 6mts......   you need to gather information not simply keep waving ones arms and going wah..wah i've got this problem its wrong  its not mine its unfair i want it gone now   you have an sar running to whom we believe is the original creditor vodafone. you have an sar running to lowells whose name is shown as the owner.   from those we should be able to find the truth here and get a plan of action going forward.   however to date i'm not convinced a telecom default is the only reason why you are getting refused whatever it was credit wise that restarted your quest.   most if not all lenders today ignore a telecom default if thats all thats bad.. my gut tells me there are other reasons you have for being refused by whom on what type of credit and if they even gave a reason why..pointing directly to it being because of this default..   ..if this is the only thing on your credit file     
    • Agree with dx view on this.   If you find an independent whole of the market mortgage advisor, they may deal with smaller lenders (not sub prime) who may consider you, but only if you took certain actions with the debts.    I think your next step is to have a long telephone conversation with an independent Mortgage Brokers and they should given you an honest view on options.   Perhaps there are property purchase options such as shared ownership, where you may be in a better position. 
    • yes you should have addressed this 3yrs ago... it's not your home and to all intent and purpose for the last three years have been all but renting it by paying everything...poss for a quiet life which is understandable.   not my bag so i'll butt out now unless i can see my input helps.

    • Hi @BankFodder
      Sorry for only updating you now, but after your guidance with submitting the claim it was pretty straight forward and I didn't want to unnecessarily waste your time. Especially with this guide you wrote here, so many thanks for that
      So I issued the claim on day 15 and they requested more time to respond.
      They took until the last day to respond and denied the claim, unsurprisingly saying my contract was with Packlink and not with them.
       
      I opted for mediation, and it played out very similarly to other people's experiences.
       
      In the first call I outlined my case, and I referred to the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 as the reason to why I do in fact have a contract with them. 
       
      In the second call the mediator came back with an offer of the full amount of the phone and postage £146.93, but not the court costs. I said I was not willing to accept this and the mediator came across as a bit irritated that I would not accept this and said I should be flexible. I insisted that the law was on my side and I was willing to take them to court. The mediator went back to Hermes with what I said.
       
      In the third call the mediator said that they would offer the full amount. However, he said that Hermes still thought that I should have taken the case against Packlink instead, and that they would try to recover the court costs themselves from Packlink.
       
      To be fair to them, if Packlink wasn't based in Spain I would've made the claim against them instead. But since they are overseas and the law lets me take action against Hermes directly, it's the best way of trying to recover the money.
       
      So this is a great win. Thank you so much for your help and all of the resources available on this site. It has helped me so much especially as someone who does not know anything about making money claims.
       
      Many thanks, stay safe and have a good Christmas!

Hi

 

I am yet another PCS sucker, my son parked his car in a pcs "controlled" carpark and put his permit on the dashboard - it was 6am on a dark, windy, winter's morning and presumably when he closed the car door, the permit flew onto the driver's side front floor and was clearly visible, as admitted by the clamp release operative, who said "Tough, the permit should have been on the dashboard." I went through the Claims-on-line route and ended up with bailiffs inability to get money from registered office scenario.

 

I found your excellent website by chance and would like to join the rapidly growing ranks of complainants of this 27 Gloucester Rd outfit. I cannot believe that this outfit can be operating within the law and having got the Small Claims to agree with this, with so many people affected and having amassed the detailed information below, could we not take a concerted legal case through the civil courts?

Hi, yeah I have had exactly the same problem as the post above. i now have a county court judgement and am wondering the next plan of attack.

 

Has anyone tried a third party debt order or know about these?

 

I'm not sure what the claims must be to take it to the civil courts but there seem to be enough people in similar situations that we mus be able to do something about it. I will try looking into civil court claims.

I have just looked at the HMCS form EX321, which offers several interesting "what to do next" options - perhaps the banana earlier in this thread could comment on same???

Robbi,

 

The reason that I asked about the Town/City associated with the address, wasn't anything to do with this thread.

 

I read the address on another website, and it rang a bell, because I'd read the same address on here, [or part of the address].

 

I won't go into the reasons of why I was looking at that other Website, except that the same address is used to sell Viagra, and other types of medication that help men with certain, ahem, problems!

Not sure how successful legal action will be. Many seem to have CCJ's and bailiffs warrants without much of a result. how about Watchdog or similar. I see on the website they are nervous about adverse publicity and some of their clients may not wish to be associated with this sort of operation.

Hello,

 

I just got clamped yesterday. No signs visable from my car or within 20 metres.

 

I have sent an appeal but no I am worried I wont even get my money back. On the bright side a plain clothes police officer was also clamped due to not seeing the signs so fingers crossed.

 

I am happy to join any group action against these cowboys. I was just so frustrated. They tried to point out signs that were on the opposite side of the car park.

 

1.50 a min phone line and £205 release fee. Might aswell asked for my mobile and my wallet

Cheers, I will try the landowner. I have got the name and badge of the officer just in case I need it later on.

 

The clampers were out in force today. They even watched someone drive in (albeit in a disable zone) didn't warn them, waited for them to go in the shop and then clamped them! Classic

I believe Clamping a vehicle displaying a disabled badge is illegal whether on public or private land.

Sorry for any confusion, this bloke wasn't disabled, he just used the space so technically did deserve clamping but watching him do it and not warn him was a bit too much

There's no money to be made in warning people though is there!

Disabled bay markings on private car parks have no lawful validity anyway; so technically, there were no grounds to clamp.

Hi,

 

I am hoping that I can get some advice. I was borrowing a friend's car today and she has received a parking ticket from Parking Control Services (not Parking Control Services Ltd) for £75 if settled in 14 days or £150 after otherwise they will revoke her driving license? This seems very unjust to me, and reading the thread not enforceable in any way.

 

I have tried suggesting that she can dispute this stating that she was not the driver of the car that day, as these tickets are against the driver and not the owner - however this has understandably shaken her a bit and she is very keen that I pay this asap - can anyone advise? - this was in the Bournemouth area.

 

Many thanks
