    • Can anybody advise me please?   Been living in rented accommodation for over 11 years, old landlord who leased property with his shop has now left and so agents have become my new landlords, so gave me a new contract.   I'm really nervous as not sure what my rights are and could I get evicted as new contract says short term, 6 months.
    • It's the only way to proceed, he has to prove irrevocably that he gave me that information, and agreed to it, which he cannot do because it doesn't exist. Not only that, he sent me a trade sales invoice, other than that you're pretty spot on.
    • Sorry - need to put my glasses on!   I think you and the other posters have been at cross-purposes because they haven't followed what you are trying to argue.  You aren't arguing a fault etc with the car, you simply want to cancel it as a distance sale, and because the vendor did not provide the necessary cancellation information pre-contract in a durable medium, you are saying that you therefore have 12 months plus 14 days to cancel AND that the vendor has to pay the collection/recovery costs.   Although I understand that argument, I don't know if that's the best way to proceed or not.   I suspect not many people have tried to argue it with second-hand cars.  And that might be, for some reason I don't know, that it's a non-starter or it's too risky.
    • No, not all all.  It's up to them to prove you were the driver.  Well done in not telling them!   Remember in all this you are legally in the right.  Their parking fee was paid.  You're not trying to "get out" of something you owe.  They are in the wrong as far as the law goes.   So how about sending them something like -   Dear BW Legal,   cheers for your Letter Before Claim.   I don't earn owe your clients a bean, indeed your clients owe the driver of the vehicle who paid the parking fee - twice.  It is your clients' responsibility if the machines they buy second hand on eBay don't work properly because they're too tight to pay a technician to maintain them.   Your clients also gave me to no right of appeal or of paying a discount in contravention of their own industry's Code of Conduct.   You can either drop this foolishness now or your clients can get a good hiding in court, both are fine by me.  I fancy a winter holiday and I fancy financing it by an unreasonable costs order under CPR27.14(2)(g).   COPIED TO NCP   The reason i say to send to NCP too is because unscrupulous solicitors are well into their clients starting claims which are bound to lose, after all they get the £££ in any case.

    • 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 .

I took my mum to St Marks at Northwick Park Hospital, she can hardly walk and I also can only walk for about 100m without pain. There were no disabled bays available so I parked as close as I could to the door, put my disabled badge on the dash board and took mum in for her appointment. I was gone about 30 minutes as I was leaving her for a few hours. I got in my car and drove away. It started to rain and I went to turn on my wipers only to find a small yellow parking ticket hidden under the wiper. I was fined for parking with a blue badge outside a bay!!!! I was gobsmacked as There had been no signs on entering or leaving the car park that this would happen. I rang the parking number and this rude man told me that it was tough I had to pay as I should have been in a disabled bay! He wouldnt listen so I ended the call. When I went to get mum I found a bay free so was ok. I found the so called signs on the parking machine which I didnt go to becasue I had the blue badge. I found some old posts from last year on this site so wonder if I am going to have to pay a very unjust fine or can I do something else? I tried to contact the PALS office but they have ignored my message, I have sent a complaint today to the hospital but cannot believe that this has happened. My poor mum got some very bad news after ths appointment from her consultant and this really tops a bad week off.

This is a private car-park so you can safely ignore the Ticket. Also the blue-badge scheme does not apply in private car-parks so they cannot "penalise" you for breaking a non-existent rule.

 

Here is a similar thread on the same subject.

Hi kilb44,

 

As you have been told by others, it is highly likely that the ticket is unenforceable.

 

However, I believe from what you've told us, that you may have grounds yourself to pursue a complaint of unlawful disability discrimination against the hospital/parking firm, for failing to make reasonable adjustments on account of your/your mums disabilities.

 

If you want more information on this, feel free to open a thread in the Disability forum on this webite, where I can respond fully.

If I've been helpful, please add to my rep. :)
