    • 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 .

I recently handed in my notice to my Letting agent saying I was leaving as per the terms of the tenancy agreement - two month notice - however I stated I would be vacating the property earlier. The LA responded immediately in writing stating they would be taking vacant possession on the 25th Sept - 1 month and 13 days before my notice period ends - this was fine with me as I was leaving the property on the 22nd of September and it would have remained empty before notice period as up on November 7th.

 

Now verbally the LA has stated that the Landlord is unsure if he wants to re let the property -meaning that I have to pay the full amount to November the 7th.

 

I was under the assumption that the previous written correspondence from the LA stating they would take vacant possession of the property on the 25th was in fact them agreeing to the tenancy being surrendered and that written statement meant that I was no longer obliged to pay rent after 25th September - am I right - and if not what are my rights given the landlord may not wish to re let the property ?

 

Thanks

Unless such an agreement took place (i.e. an agreement that you were not liable for the rent after this date) then you are in fact still liable.

Ok however surely if the Letting Agent wants to take vacant possession than I am no longer the tenant and as such should not have to pay rent.

 

Are there any obligations for Land Lords to re rent the property ?

 

What are my options re trying to get a tenant to take on the notice period ?

 

Is there any way to not have to pay two full months rent for a property I will not be living in ?

You are still obliged to pay the actual financial loss for the termination of the contract outside of the terms allowed - i.e. lost rent.

Are there any obligations for Land Lords to re rent the property ?

No.

What are my options re trying to get a tenant to take on the notice period ?

Not in my opinion - there is not long enough to do this, and the landlord is unlikely to agree.

Is there any way to not have to pay two full months rent for a property I will not be living in ?

In this situation, not in my opinion.

 

I realise it is frustrating. But you have to realise that you had a certain obligation, which you have not met - the landlord is absolutely entitled to his loss due to this breach.

You have one potential bargaining chip - 'Vacant Possession'.

 

If they want it on 25th September, make it clear thats when your rent obligation ends. If they dont agree, then tell them they are not to enter the property until the contract is up. They are trying to have their cake and eat it here. You should insist is either or.

I agree but be wary as it is a term of most ASTs (enforceable) that the property wont be left for more than a month...also the AST can only remain in effect whilst it is your principal residence. Therefore, if they wanted, they could claim the property as abandoned and take possession that way. Doubtful though.

 

I do certainly agree that if they want rent until the end of the term that you should say no vacant possession before the end of the term though.
