    • you wont get eric and that doesn't solve your problem as thats mainly to do with private parking set asides really as most judges now view PPC Backdoor CCJ with dissent and grant it regardless.    i absolutely hate link and paul burrell he built up a £1B+ empire of wealth solely by conning debtors into paying debts they mostly didn't even owe, but in this instance you are on very shaky ground.   me pers i'd not even debated it and i'd just gone for it win or bust. once you get the set aside it should be plain sailing.   but you came for advice and i can't not be truthful here.   the only otherway to better gauge you chances is to SAR Barclaycard , get everything they hold. that will show you the cards that Link will have to play with , they might well be pants.      
    • I have read everything about these cowboys but need a little advice. I was issued my fine on 9/12/19 but only received a dated letter on 11/01/20.   Ive had all the threatening letters from DRP and now Zenith and ignored them all. My wife was driving our car but yet its my dad who's getting all the letters as he's the registered owner. They managed to get my number and rang me today, I busted them for being the same company but the guy on the phone was super aggressive. I said to him Ive spoken to Trading Standards and they told me by law a ticket has to be issued within 14 days of the offence. But as you can see it was over a month, I said this to the aggressive dude on the phone who actually knew way to much about parking fines. So I think they are actually under the same umbrella as VCS also.   He was firing back that the law doesn't state that and I should look at 2012 laws or something and the DVLA, and it takes time to get my details from the DVLA to issue my charge????   Does this mean anything to anyone pls Regards   Stuart
    • Thanks to both of you, I've PM'd Ericsbrother.   dx - I wonder if you would be able to suggest a couple of hypothetical basic defences that you think would be valid  (just to see if it sparks any thoughts of a different approach I could take)?

    • I am currently putting my claim together on the Money Claim website, if I tick the box:   Do you want to reserve the right to claim interest under the County Court Act? If yes please select 'yes' and complete the following fields. If you wish to claim interest under any other act or agreement please select 'no' and enter the full details of your interest agreement in the box below.   What dates and information should I enter in the attached screenshot boxes? Is it the date I sent the original car rejection letter through? Is the date issuing the claim the date 14 days after sending the Letter of Claim. I have calculated the daily rate of interest using the guide.   Thanks.

    • I’m in desperate need of help
      I bought some clothes online in may through Evans and paid through PayPal
      returned them all seven days later
      I waited the 14days for my refund and no refund came
      I put in a dispute through PayPal but I didn’t get any emails to escalate the case - PayPal closed it. 
      evans said they couldn’t refund the money because PayPal have cancelled the refund because of the open dispute
      I contacted PayPal
      they said the dispute had been closed but Evans at no point had attempted a refund.
      fast forward to today
      I’ve got copies of numerous messages sent to and from twitter messages as it’s the only way I can contact them
      I’ve also contacted their customer service too
      all I get is PayPal have cancelled refund because dispute is still open.
      I have proved that the dispute is closed
      I have got an email saying that if Evans sent the refund they would accept it
      but up until the date I got the email they have not once attempted a refund .
       I have sent them a letter before court email
      I have even offered to have the full refund as a gift card just to get this sorted !
      I’m literally at the end of my tether and don’t know where to turn next !
      i suffer with mental health issues and this is affecting my health and I’d saved the money for a year to buy these clothes as I’m on a low income .

Hi everyone,


Not sure if this is in the right section or even the right website but you have helped me on so mant other things that i thought i would give it a go.



I recently bought a new build house before it was built so only seen the plans when i purchased, Onthe diagram of the property it showed that next doors parking spaces would be slighly outside my living room wondow and questioned the sales agent about this, She told me that it wouldnt affect our view from inside and the reason was becouse the row of houses was ment to be 3x 3bedroom houses and 1x4 bedroom house but they changed the plans of the house and thats why the parking spaces was slightly out,


Anyways after living here for 5mths somebody has in the last week moved into the property next door and started parking his car and sometimes his van directly in view of my living room window so thats all i can see from my £128,000 house :(


Taking that aside, My young 15yr old daughter and my partner often sit in the living room in there pyjamas and dressing gowns and when the guy from next door comes home to park his car foward into his space hes looking straight through my window which is making them both feel very uncomftable, As barrattts changed the plans on the houses but not the parking spaces and i was basicaly told that it would not be a problem, Is there anything i can do as this is going to end in tears with us moving property to resolve unless something within the law can help us in this matter


Thanks for listining

If Barrett have properly followed the agreed planning process, then there is not a lot you can do. Unfortunately you cannot believe what sales agents say. When I bought a new house the first thing I had to sign was an acknowledgement that nothing verbally promised by the sales agent was part of the contract!

The first point is whether or not the neighbour has the right to park where he does. If he does, then clearly you cannot stop him. It is, after all, not his fault if you were misled.


The second point is to establish whether you were misled and, if so, whether you have a cause for action. That is going to depend on what the questions were that you posed to the agents and the answers they gave; whether any disclaimer of the type referred to above was signed and, if so, whether it binds you; what questions your conveyancer asked and the answers he was given; what the contract and other sale documents say. The best person to advise is the conveyancer who acted as he will know more than anyone posting on this forum.


When buying property if you have any doubts or queries you really must bring them up with your conveyancer. He will be able to raise the questions with the seller's solicitors and ensure that any assurances given are properly documented.
