    • What happened BRS, contacted me after the accident and wanted to repair the damage i agreed i told them don't you want to go through the insurance they said no !. I said ok you can repair the damage, they asked me for more details about the damage so they could post the job on mybuilder.com. Anyway i emailed them giving them details of the damage and they never replied and ignored me.   It was only when i done a askmid and got the insurance details of 2 policies running on the vehicle and contacted Allianz the first on the list, BRS contacted me saying sorry for the lack of communication i went on holiday and left it with another staff member who failed to contact you.   BRS offered to say they want to repair the damage i said "NO" you messed me about the first time and now i want the security of going through the insurance.     I did give them one last opportunity under my terms i told them to pay ***** (fair amount)into my account and that would settle the matter and i would sign a agreement that the damages are paid in full. There reply was "that is not how we do things here and to contact their insurance" and conveniently never gave me the insurer responsible.
    • Check this and read about a Notice Of Correction     
    • There can be many reasons for dual insurance, depending on the use of the vehicle, certain hires, contracts etc, - nothing our of the ordinary there, just get the firm to confirm which one, as above don't let them dictate, they are in the wrong.    I would use you own insurers , and always advise this in cases where there is an impact claim for a  wall or similar.    Reason being is the third parties liability is for indemnity only which realistically is to pay for the damaged part of the wall and that only, they don't even have to pay for a builder, just the cost to repair, leaving you to deal and fend for yourself.    Your home  insurance cover will be on a new for old basis, giving further allowance if there any grey areas in regards to block matching, matching items (say for the welding) potential wear and tear contributing etc,    - more chance of getting more of the wall done than just the section that is damaged - plus it gives you a much better right of recourse if anything goes wrong, especially if you get a cash settlement or they use dodgy bob the builder.    Your insurer will want the third party details and will chase the responsible underwriter for their recovery, you may be able to piggy back on that. The reason for their hesitance in confirming about claiming back the XS will be due to the fact they are a home claims team and don't do an awful lot of recovery of losses compared to a motor claims department, and generally don't have as much experience on a day to day basis (or certainly not the front line staff). 
    • Give them time-amoebas are a little short on brain power to work sarcasm out. I wrote a letter similar to yours to Parking Eye and they wrote back to confirm they had received my appeal! 
    • considering it expires in Jan 2021 it looks like it has 2 insurances policies running on it at the same time, What a farce! each insurance company could blame one another this shouldn't be legal, but it looks like it is.

    • 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

the guy who dropped the letter off this morning was a scruffy looking guy in a small white van and he had no intention of knocking even though the letter says they attended the property to seize and distrain my possessions.

please help

thanks decky75

Did you ignore the notice to owner, charge certificate and order for recovery? If you didn't one or all of the documents you may have a case.

Assuming you did not appeal

 

You should have got...

 

A PCN ...... usually stuck on car

 

A Notice to owner ....... telling you that you have not paid, have missed the discount and should appeal or pay

 

A charge certificate.....telling you that you have done nothing and the cost has gone up 50%

 

An Order for recovery.......... tells you that the fine is now a debt and unless you pay the baliffs are coming.

 

All the above MUST be received before you hear from the Baliff.

Contact your local court and ask them to recall the accounts and make an arrangement to pay at a reasonable rate.

 

I know I was dragged in front of a judge for parking fines and ordered to pay out of my benefits at £5 a week.

 

After it was paid I had a nasty visit at 8 am from 2 bailiffs come to seize my car. I panicked and got my ex husband to bring the £300 they wanted. We handed it over and they sat in their van til the office opened at 8.30 at which time they confirmed they'd made a mistake and that it was all paid. They were very agressive and threw the money on the table and snatched the receipt and practically ran from my house :|

Hi Try To Keep This Short My Partner Has Parking Fines. Went To Far Ended Up In Newlyns Hands Had Several Phone Calls To Start With And I Explained We Were Not Able To Pay The Amount They Were Asking. Fine Was Originally £155, Fees State £353.28 Comes To £508.28 There Are 2 Of These Exactly The Same For £155 However The Other One Has Fees For £276.23 Comes To £431.23 Not Sure How.

Baliff Posted Letter Through Door Final Notice Call Me To Make Payment,

Me And My Partner Went Away For A Weekend To Visit Relatives.

Baliff Knocked On Door Asked My Mother For My Partner She Said He Is Not Here And He Handed Her An Open Letter For My Partner Which Obviously She Could Read. Now In 2 Weeks We Have Had 6 Letters Demanding Money From Them, Checked This Morning For The Baliff Mr Hendricks Who I Cannot Find As Registered I Have A Bit Of Knowledge On This Type Of Thing But Just Wondering What Everyone Else Thinks

I.e

Fees 2 Different Amounts Same £155 To Start With

Maybe Unregistered Baliff

Giving Someone Else My Partners Letters (breach Of Privacy) Maybes

Oh Forgot To Mention We Did Offer To Pay Something To Start With But Got A Very Horrible No Replie, As We Are On Benefits And Partner Suffers From Panic Attacks And Agraphobia.

 

Any Thoughts, Advice

Newyns are a bunch of crooks. I had the samething. Same initial fee, different charges! - Ive tried to get a subject access request from them and they refuse to supply the bailiffs name, dates of visits etc.

 

Check out this link Screw The Bailiff

 

Also it may be worth filling out forms PE2/3 - That will revoke any action and send it back to the local authority. Obviously you need a decent reason to fill it in tho!

Hi hope someone can help with this,

i have(partner) been chased for parking fines by council yes went to far into the hands of newlyn and yes we should of paid but didnt so now have to deal with these baliffs,

we have recieved lots of letters from newlyn and ignored them until today they are saying that they are coming to our house and taking our things,

the letter says exactly.our baliffs will return without notice with transportation to remove your goods and chattels even in your absences if necessary the total due is £935.95.

they also say they are working on a warrant of execution issued by northampton parking enforcement (county court).

there are 2 fines £155 each we have not seen these peolpe yet they did call once when we were out and handed a letter to my mother the letter was not in an enevelope just a piece of paper so she could read it,

can they take our goods without levy, can they charge this amount,and can the balliff just hand my partners letters to anyone please help.

oh when we got first phone call from these people we offered to pay but would not except less then half the amount owed we are on benefits as partner suffers from panic attacks and finds it hard to leave the house unless with me(on a good day).

Decky75 I cant help on the questions I'm afraid but if they have a warrent of execution then I think you need to follow the instructions in this thread to get it set aside.

A recent CAG posting on same subject:

Hope this helps, if nothing else your now bumped back to the top of the stack of posts.
