    • And as for “what if I get sick the last week” (or those last three days)......   well, you’d get sick pay. Would you go into your new workplace?   HMRC may not be bothered by 2 overlapping jobs of course, but if NHS CFS (counter fraud And security) noticed that either: a) you were claiming over-lapping sick pay for 2 jobs, or b) you were claiming sick pay for one job while well enough to turn in for the other: expect them to view at least one of the sick pay claims as fraudulent!   if you annoy your “difficult” manager : they might be difficult enough to highlight it for the local NHS CF specialist
    • Hello, Can someone advise if the attached is a valid charge please?  I had parked in the car park and paid but then got delayed and have ended up with a ticket for parking longer than I should have done.   I know they will refuse the appeal but is this charge enforceable?   Charge Notice.pdf
    • The dealer is called Carwise in Epping. It's not the most established of premises. When i was there i'd say there was about 10-15 cars inside and an office. I've seen these reviews of them which seem to replicate my experience. https://www.cardealerreviews.co.uk/dealership/hr-autos-epping-essex-england (note previous name). It's quite worrying.    
    • To me, it isn't just about social distancing and hygiene measures. I'm far from the first to say it but until there's a reliable track and trace system, I don't think this can be managed properly.   Children may not suffer as much as adults, although some do, they can be asymptomatic and pass on the virus to the rest of the family.   https://www.walesonline.co.uk/news/uk-news/lockdown-david-king-second-wave-18739973
    • When will most schools actually re-open in September ?   And when they open, will they be providing teaching over the number hours 9am to 3pm  ?   I am thinking of the school I attended, which was a large Victorian building, with many modern extensions.  The classrooms which could accommodate about 35 Children elbow to elbow, will only be able to accommodate 20 at the most with any reasonable distancing.   Or does the whole class  of say 35 stay in a bubble and the teachers move around to teach the different subjects ?    I can see many schools opening later in September, not for all pupils for all days and not doing the full hours.   This is going to be very difficult to manage for all those concerned, including parents looking to return to work.

    • 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

Hi,

 

I have received a letter today from Collect Services saying:

 

Unpaid Penalty Charge Amount Due £368.04

 

The enforcement of road traffic debts (certified Baliffs) regulations 1993

 

Dear Sir/Madam

 

We act for Reading Borough Council CEO in respect of the following Penalty Charge Notice.

 

Vehicle Reg

Description and location on contravention

 

AS the sum due has not been paid a warrent of execution has been issued adn we are now empowered to enforce collection. If you have any dispute about this debt it must be put in writing and where relevant supported by documentary evidence. Our call centre cannot resolve any disputes over the telephone.

 

I sold this car back in August 2009 and the parking ticket is dated February 2010. I have emailed them but have had no response.

Does anyone know where I stand with this?

I'm really worried because I live in shared house and hardly anything belongs to me here and more to the point it's not my debt?

 

Thanks

Mich

That figure of £368.04 doesnt sit right.

 

The legislation you have quoted in your post only provides a bailiffs fee of £28 to be added to the parking fine amount plus a £5 court administration fee.

 

Telephone the Traffic Enforcement Centre on 0845 7045007 quoting the PCN number and they will tell you what you genuinely owe. Bailiff often exaggerate their fees by hundreds of pounds.

 

I sold this car back in August 2009 and the parking ticket is dated February 2010. I have emailed them but have had no response.

 

Thats the bailiffs problem, not yours.

 

Does anyone know where I stand with this?

 

You owe £40 parking fine plus whatever the court says you owe. typicaly its £95. Phone the numnber above.

 

 

I'm really worried because I live in shared house and hardly anything belongs to me here and more to the point it's not my debt?

 

A bailiff cannot levy on anyone elses foods, this is called irregular levy. Ambrose vs. Nottingham City Council. I wouldnt worry about it so long as your property is secure. Bailiffs cannot commit breaking & entering to obtain money.

 

Pay the council direct, there are no bailiffs fees to pay and remember to get a receipt.

With respect to fork it you owe nothing if the car was not in your ownership at the time of the offence so you pay nothing to anyone.

 

Contact the DVLA and ask them to tell you the date they received notice of the change of ownership and start your complaint from there.

Sorry, thats well spotted, I read the OP too quickly and missed one very crucial fact

 

I sold this car back in August 2009 and the parking ticketlink3.gif is dated February 2010

 

gstanny is right, you dont owe anything and the liability can be disregarded. However, did you transfer ownership with DVLA? you could sill be the recorded keeper. I'll lay money that you are not because you would have received the Notice to Owner.

 

You have contacted the the bailiffs but they choose to ignore your email. Write to the council with a letter marked 'FOR INFORMATION ONLY' and if you get any trouble, them ask the Local Government Ombudsman to intervene and make an application for compensation under the civil remedy of Section 2 of the Protection from harassment Act 1997.
