    • Hi,  I'm new here, and hoping that this is the right place to post this.   I applied for pip and was awarded standard mobility (10 points).  I did an M.R. but got the same result. They acknowledge that I can't leave my house without having someone with me. They accept that I'm not completely housebound as I go out to appointments, which are not a regular occurrence, they also said that they can't award me enhanced because I'm not out most days.  Is this correct?  Surely it shouldn't matter how often I go out? 
    • The Legal Ombudsman has a wider remit than the SRA, and can always refer matters on to the SRA where they find a breach of the SRA's code.   I'd suggest writing to the solicitors, highlighting these issues, asking them to refund the money. If they don't then complain to the LO.
    • Good morning all,   I have an update for you all, shortly after my first hearing i was told i would need to have a rehearing with another company, Obviously i agreed but after the initial grievance hearing the person then asked me to enter into a private conversation, I have received the settlement offer and are disgusted as its not even half of my monthly  salary, I'm not sure what to do at this stage as i dont have the funds to finance a solicitor,so any advice would be appreciated.  
    • Sorry, but what does this mean?   Who are ARC? It would be helpful if you could be a little bit more clear about what happened. I don't understand why you are not simply proceeding against Amazon – because it is clearly their responsibility as it was their driver or courier company
    • I understand that you were involved in a contentious divorce in respect of which there was a bill for court costs – £850. You decided to challenge the costs in court and you lost and an order was made against you. We decided to appeal the order but before the appeal was heard, the solicitors made you a without prejudice offer of a 50-50 split – £425. You agree to this and you signed the document to that effect which you returned to the solicitors. Despite that the solicitors are now trying to impose the original £850 order. Is that the correct order of events? "Without prejudice" is certainly something that doesn't seem to be very well understood, including by solicitors. "Without prejudice" can protect an offer from being disclosed to the court where the offer has been refused so that it is not binding on anyone. However, without prejudice cannot be used to hide everything from the court – including wrongdoings, unethical behaviour et cetera. It seems to me that once you sign the agreement you effectively had a contract. I'd like to know a little bit more about the agreement that you signed but presumably it was intended to bring a halt to any further proceedings. I don't think there is any difficulty about disclosing a contract to the court in the circumstances. It is only the offer which was made without prejudice. Once the agreement was accepted and signed then the document acquired a wholly different character. It was no longer an offer open to be accepted or refused. It was a legally binding contract which imposed obligations upon both sides. In my view the solicitors have acted in a highly unethical way and I would begin by making a complaint to the SRA. I wonder whether the solicitors proposed the 50-50 split to you without consulting with their client and when they then contacted their client and told her what had been agreed, she refused to accept it and on that basis the solicitors recognised that they had made an error but rather than accept their responsibility and footing the £425 out of their own pockets, they preferred to get it from you. Of course this is just speculation but it seems to me to be quite a possible scenario. I'd like to see the agreement post up here please – that my sense is that you should complain to the SRA and you should tell the solicitors that this is what you're doing.

    • Hi,  
      I was in Sainsbury’s today and did scan and shop.
      I arrived in after a busy day at work and immediately got distracted by the clothes.
      I put a few things in my trolley and then did a shop.
      I paid and was about to get into my car when the security guard stopped me and asked me to come back in.
      I did and they took me upstairs.
      I was mortified and said I forgot to scan the clothes and a conditioner, 5 items.
      I know its unacceptable but I was distracted and Initially hadn’t really planned to use scan and shop.
      No excuse.
      I offered to pay for the goods but the manager said it was too late.
      He looked at the CCTV and because I didn’t try to scan the items he was phoning the police.
      The cost of the items was about £40.
      I was crying at this point and told them I was a nurse, just coming from work and I could get struck off.
      They rang the police anyway and they came and issued me with a community resolution notice, which goes off my record in a year.
      I feel terrible. I have to declare this to my employer and NMC.
      They kept me in a room on my own with 4 staff and have banned me from all stores.
      The police said if I didn’t do the community order I would go to court and they would refer me to the PPS.
      I’m so stressed,
      can u appeal this or should I just accept it?
      Thanks for reading

Hi all... My car got invoiced by Premier Park Ltd over the weekend. Customer Parking bays outside a shop that wasn't even open at the time. The signage and 'PCN' seem to have been quite carefully-worded, though, compared with others I've seen here.


From reading this site, I realise that my best course of action is to ignore them in the most persistent and resolute fashion possible, so I was mainly wondering if anyone has come across this company before (I think they're only a couple of years old), and if there's anything in particular I need to bear in mind (whilst doing my ignoring...).

Yes, bear in mind that you need to get on with your life. Life is too short to be worrying about these [EDIT] eejits.

Ignore everything you get from them, including letters from their so-called

'legal department' or 'pre-litigation department' or some other such crap.

The only correspondence you should take notice of is genuine court papers.

Which, in all probability, you will not get. jed

Yes I too have been misled by Premier Park Ltd signage at Exeter Cathedral Car park which makes no direct reference to Saturday or Sunday restrictions in its wording.


I have written to complain to the company about the wording of the signage, as well as to trading standards and the British Parking Assocation to which the company subscribes. In particular I have asked the company to improve its wording in relation to the restrictions that apply at weekends.


The following is a excerpt from my letter of complaint, so far Premier Park have not responded directly to any of the issues I raise in this letter.


I feel that if anyone else has felt misled in the way I have they also write complaining letters so that the company can be encourage to improve the clarity of its signage.


When parking on a Saturday (or Sunday) evening one naturally looks for explicit references to those days on any parking restriction sign or at the very least to the expression ‘at weekends’. In addition to these omissions, the abundance of references to Monday and Friday in the Cathedral Car Park sign (above) conveys the impression that these are the days to which the restrictions apply (in contrast to weekend days). Certainly both my wife and I (with five postgraduate degrees between us) managed to completely misunderstand this sign, and I wonder how many other people have also failed to understand its message and unintentionally suffered as a consequence.


In view of this I would like to encourage Premier Park Ltd to improve its signage at the Exeter Cathedral Car Park and would be grateful if specific answers could be sent to me in response to the questions listed below.


1. Does your parking sign (as shown above) mean to convey the message that Saturday and Sunday parking restrictions apply at Cathedral Car Park?


2. If this sign does entail Saturday and Sunday restrictions to parking (and I assume this is the case given that I received a ticket on a Saturday evening) why is no direct or explicit reference made to “Saturday”, “Sunday” or “weekends” within the language of the sign?


3. What steps have Premier Park Ltd made to ensure that the wording of their parking notices convey clearly and unambiguously the restrictions that apply for each area under its management? Are there for instance standards that apply or advice that can be sought from the British Parking Association to ensure that the language of parking restriction signs is sufficiently clear?


4. When I contact Premier Park Ltd by phone they were unwilling to disclose the name of the client on behalf of whom they manage the Exeter Cathedral Car Park, citing the Data Protection Act. Can you confirm that it is the policy of Premier Park Ltd not to disclose the clients to potential complainant, such as myself, who may wish to directly contact the party for whom the Car Park is managed? If this is not the policy of Premier Park Ltd, could you please inform me of the client for Cathedral Car Park, so that I can write to them directly about this matter.


5. Given my observations is Premier Park Ltd taking any steps at this stage to ensure that the signage at Exeter Cathedral Car Park is sufficiently clear in relation to Saturday and Sunday parking restrictions and will the further issuing of parking tickets on Saturdays and Sundays be halted until these changes are enacted?

Just a quick update on my original case - got plenty of letters with increasing 'costs' added to the required fee, but they fizzled out 3 months or so after the 'offence'.


@TiepHien - if you've read much on these boards, you'll have realised that the business case of these companies relies on the exact issues and ambiguities you raise in your letter. And the fact that, when presented with an official-looking pcn, many people will actually pay it. So, naturally, they have no intention of addressing any of your points. Just enjoy ignoring them, and be sure to encourage anyone else to do the same!
