    • You will be subject to the same laws notice periods and protections as with any length of contract.    From my own and other’s personal experience I would treat it as an amber warning light to start putting out feelers into what’s out there on the market   A 6 month contract is great for people who might be waiting for a new build , or having renovations done on their own property. For someone like yourself who wants security it might well be time for you to consider moving on.
    • Thank you. You still haven't given as much information. We need more. Please will you tell us who the retailer is – are they in UK or elsewhere? What was the item and what is its value? Did you declare the correct value? Or did the retailer declare the correct value? You say you paid by credit card – not a debit card against your bank account? Please read around all the Hermes threads on this forum. There is lots of good information there. In particular understand your rights under the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999.
    • I am sorry, but without seeing the contract, and knowing what is on it or what effect it has, it is impossible to say.     
    • A16 BYN is the plates that the car was advertised with, and obviously the plate which I checked the mot history with, I also thought the same that the website maybe hadn't been updated with the most recent mot that the dealer had got done, I asked for the original plate number whilst doing the logging in to my bank account, to pay both the dealer and the shiply transporter. Bearing in mind I had told the dealer around 6pm that I would get the deposit sorted out when I put my son to bed, that gave him every opportunity to send me any pre contract details etc. Just over an hour later (son still wasn't in bed) asked for the address of where the vehicle was to be picked up from as I couldn't accept the quote for the transporter without that information. Less than an hour after that he whatsapped me asking if I still want to buy the car because he's getting enquiries from other interested parties and is telling them that he's sold the car to me (no deposit  paid as yet). I then replied a few min later having finally got my son to sleep.    Anyway between me sorting out the details and where to pick the car up from, log into my banking to pay deposits etc he'd  messaged me the original plate no... which I didn't see until after I'd done all the aformentioned.    I decided to check the history on that plate as like yourself I had been confused about the mileage, low and behold there was the most recent mot containing 5 advisories which were never mentioned to me. Another thing I can't really understand is the expiry date of the mot before that either and I did query all of this with the dealer, only to be told that cars in Scotland are renowned for corrosion issues...and that if I had checked the mot history I would have seen them, I explained I had checked the history on the plate in the advert as I had no knowledge of what the original plate numbers were and he told me that the most recent mot was under the plate in the advert. Most certainly the mot certificate he then sent me on whatsapp had the advertised plate on the certificate,  however, it wasn't showing up on the dvla page.    By this stage I was irate with him for several reasons, for not notifying me of the advisories and telling me that he had checked the dvla and the most recent mot was showing up on the advertised plates, I then screenshot the page with the expiry and this car is not mot'd information, and 2 for telling me that cars in Scotland are renowned for corrosion issues!    Had he simply said, the car is 18 years old you're going to expect to have some corrosion at some point, I'd have been a bit more tolerant at that stage. Apon checking the history on the original plates, it transpired it passed the last MOT previous to the most recent one on the same day the advertised plates ran out, I still haven't quite fathomed out what is going on regards to this. However the previous mot showed no corrosion issues and as it hadn't failed on that basis, I would get the panel beater sprayer mentioned in an earlier post to have a look at it, and sort the issues out re that, also the main reason I had the car delivered to my dad's address as that's also the area where the panel beaters business is.

    • 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 .

Could you please help me.

 

My wife has received a parking ticket from a private company for parking over the line markings.

 

Whilst we do not dispute the fact that she has parked over the lines there are reasons as to why.

 

As she drove into the space there is to a metal barrier on the drivers side. The car is a hatchback and so has longish doors. The space next to her was empty and then another car was in the next space parked right up to the line.

 

She also had her mother in the car in the passenger seat and two children (one needing a buggy) in the back.

 

She could not park in the space to the left as the passenger would not be able to get out nor get the child out of the back on her side. She had therefore had to park over the line in order to allow the driver of the other car in the space next but one to get in and allow the drivers door to be opened on her side so she could get out and get the children out.

 

We have made an initial dispute and then a colleage at work referred me to this webside. I can see that I perhaps need to send a letter rather than just dispute this online.

 

We have so far been able to contact someone who we believe to be the landlord of the car park at the industrial estate. He has said he will ask the third party traffic company to review the photogrpahs and respond.

 

Any advice would be welcomed.

 

Thanks in advance.

I can tell you the outcome of your "appeal" now, "appeal denied pay up !"

As you state this is a ticket from a PPC (private parking company) then the only thing you need to do is

 

IGNORE.

The ticket you have is an unenforcable invoice. Have a read of the threads on this forum to get an idea of how these PPCs work.

hello all:-)

Hi if a private invoice not a PPC under council instruction then ignore or follow instructions in the video below.

All you have is a completely unenforceable invoice.

 

• do not pay

• do not contact them

• ignore their junkmail

• ignore anything from their powerless debt collectors

• they will give up and go away

• they will not take you to court (where they'd lose)

 

It's a [problem].

Found there website where they refer to legal precendents :-

 

http : // worldwidewb.parkingcontrol.com/legal/

 

There were signs apparently in the car park, but I have yet to see these myself.

 

Does this change any advice given above?

Incidentally the distance parked over the white line is the tyre width, the edge of the inside of the tyre is right next to the left hand side of the white line.

 

I had a similar issue with a different company. Before I knew about the [problem] I was angered that a fine could be issued on the parking between the lines basis as in my case the it was the end bay and the other side of the bay was a kerb.

 

Luckily, because I was angered I sought advice and found myself here and got the same advice that you will see in many other threads regarding private parking companies.

 

Hold your nerve and keep ignoring.

 

 

After reading many threads i've come to realise the amount of time wasted typing conditions or excuses of why the ticket should be excused or shouldn't have been issued in the first place. As statetd above, if you try to appeal the PPC will simply deny it and ask you to pay up.

 

Hope this helps :)

You are under no obligation in any way, shape or form to write or speak to these people. You can completely ignore them. If they don't like it, they can try and take the driver to court. They cannot take the registered keeper to court, as there is no case against the keeper. Of course they would need to be able to prove the identity of the driver in order to sue him/her, which they can't... so they can't take that person to court. So they can't do anything. So ignore them.
