With thanks to DragonFly1967 for the ideas for this list, here are some abbreviations that are frequently used on the private parking forum.

 

If needed, the lists can be expanded upon.

 

HB

 

ANPR - Automatic number plate recognition.

 

AOS - Approved Operator Scheme

 

ATA - Accredited Trade Association. In order to request vehicle keeper details private parking companies must be a member of an ATA and abide by its code of practice. ATA members must also cater for disputed cases to be referred to an independent appeals process.

 

The BPA and the IPC are the two parking related ATAs.

 

BPA - British Parking Association. One of the two "members clubs" for PPC's.

 

CoP - Code(s) of Practice.

 

DR+ - Debt Recovery Plus, a debt collector used by some private parking companies. AKA Daft Recovery + a Desperate Collection Agency

 

GPEOL - Genuine pre-estimate of loss.

 

IAS - Independent Appeals Service (run by the IPC)

 

IPC - International Parking Community (Previously known as the "Independent Parking Committee") the other "members club". Formed in part because some of the PPC's didn't like the way that the BPA run POPLA was always working against them.

 

LBA or LBC - Letter Before Action or Letter Before Claim (respectively)

 

LPS - London Parking Solutions or Local Parking Security

 

NtD - Notice To Driver (Windscreen Ticket)

 

NtK - Notice to Keeper

 

P&D - Pay and Display

 

PE - Parking Eye

 

POC - Particulars Of Claim

 

POFA 2012 or simply POFA - Protection Of Freedoms Act 2012. ( Specifically schedule 4 for keeper liability. Link)

 

POPLA - Parking On Private Land Appeals. An "independent" appeals service. Although having used quotation marks, in fairness it has to be said that they do tend to allow a lot of appeals in favour of the motorist. Run by the BPA.

 

POPLA Code - Is the code that you need in order to lodge your appeal with them.

 

PPC - Private Parking Compan(y/ies)

 

PWE - Is Parking With(out) Ease

 

RK - Registered Keeper

 

VRN - Vehicle Registration Number

    • This is a bit of a lengthy one but I’ll summerise best as possible.
       
      THIS IS HOW THE PHONECALL WENT 
       
      I was contacted by future comms by phone, they stated that they could beat any phone contract I have , (I am a limited company but just myself that needs a business phone and I am the only worker) 
      I told future comms my deal, £110 per month with a phone and a virtual landline, they confirmed that they could beat that, £90 per month with a phone , virtual landline  they also confirmed they would pay Vodafone (previous provider) the termination fee. As I am in business, naturally I was open to making a deal. So we proceeded. 
      Future comms then revealed that the contract would be with PLAN.COM and the airtime would be provided by 02, I instantly told them that this would break the deal as I have poor 02 signal in the house where I live as my partner is on 02 and constantly complaining about bad signal
      the salesman assured me he would send a signal booster box out with the phone so I would have perfect signal.
      so far so good.....
      i then explained this is the only mobile phone I use for business and pleasure, so therefore I didn’t want any disconnection time in the slightest between the switchover from Vodafone to 02
      the salesman then confirmed that the existing phone would only be disconnected once the new phone was switched on.
      so far so good....

    • The FSA has announced large fines against DB UK Bank Limited (trading as DB Mortgages) - DeutscheBank and also against Redstone for their unfair treatment of their customers.
      Please see the links below for summaries and full details from the FSA website.
      It is now completely clear that any arrears charges which exceed actual administrative costs are unfair and therefore unlawful.
      Furthemore, irresponsible lending practices are also unfair and unlawful.
      Additionally there are other unfair practices including unarranged counsellor visits - even if they have been attempted.
      You are entitled to refuse counsellor visits and not incur any charges.
      Any charges for counsellor visits must not seek to make profits. The cost of the visits must be passed on to you at cost price.
      We are hearing stories of people being charged for counsellor visits for which there is no evidence that they were even attempted.
      It is clear that some mortgage lenders are trying to cheat you out of your money.
      You should ascertain how much has been taken from you and claim it back. The chances of winning are better than 90%. It is highly likely that the lender will attempt to avoid court action and offer you back your money.
      However, you should ensure that you receive a proper rate of interest and this means that you should be seeking at least restitutionary damages - which would be much higher than the statutory 8%.
      Furthermore, you should assess whether the paying of demands for unlawful excessive charges has also out you further into arrears and if this has caused you further penalties in terms of extra interest or any other prejudice. This should be claimed as well.
      If excessive unlawful charges have resulted in your credit file being affected, then you should take this into account also when working out exactly what you want by way of remedy from the lender.
      You should consult others on these forums when considering any offer.
      You must not make any complaint through the Ombudsman. your time will be wasted, you will wait up to 2 yrs and there will be a minimal 8% award of interest and no account will be taken of any other damage you have suffered.
      You must make your complaint through the County Court for a rapid and effective remedy.
