    • Thank you for your advice so far, I appreciate it. However, while I don't have a problem with (subjective) reformatting of my posts, adding hyperlinks to keywords, etc., please can you stop editing the content of what I write - in this case, making sure this now potentially appears prominently for anyone searching the purchasing dealer on search engines? It is putting words in my mouth and is just rude. My earlier comments are based on what the dealer told me. Had I known what would have happened, should I have named them, I wouldn't have, as I cannot guarantee the veracity of the claim with my own eyes.    I am aware of the basic intricacies of needing to prove law, and how it works in general, and having to prove loss, etc. The only legal recourse mentioned was if I needed to pay for it myself - and if I need to go that way, I will keep a running update here to help others. I am aware I will have to pay for the repair myself before I go down any legal recourse. There are other aspects of the various acts that can also be explored if it appears they are not following their obligations, other than me paying and claiming back. I am not a lawyer, nor have I needed to understand that the legislation does this depth in the past - hence my asking for assistance here. The only reason I mentioned it in passing is that it is the last resort.   And again, I don't mean to sound ungrateful for the advice given thus far, and appreciate it, and you have already helped. I feel like we have gone straight to level 11.   My current view of this is: It's closer to £9k, having looked at it again today. You may be able to drop £9k at the drop of a hat - but I can't, especially around an already expensive time of the year. And I earn enough to put me in the smaller percentage of the county’s earners. I hated having to type that as it can come across as boasting, but I did it to explain that having that much liquid cash is unrealistic - especially with interest rates what they are. I would have to sell equity, cash out saving etc. This will take time. The only card I have with enough credit limit to cover that much is my company one, which is a no-go. I agree this is taking too long for a simple, albeit expensive fault. It's analogous to fixing a crack in a windscreen. No one would call for an engineer report on that situation to know what the cause and solution was The core driver for me arriving here asking for advice is the additional delay their potential cowboy of an engineering company will introduce. A view reinforced having spoken to them to arrange a date. I am not putting any more exact details or prices at this stage, because I don't want to be any more identified than you already have by changing the thread title. One Google and those with knowledge know exactly who I am, and I don't want to potentially damage relations with the parties on my side by opening a potential can of worms. Law of unintended consequences and all that. In hindsight, I regret naming anyone yet, as this can still realistically be resolved this week. I just wanted to initially come for education and understand my options. Hope for the best, plan for the worst. And to escalate if plan A or B didn't work.   To answer:     I think I have. I phoned them today again, asserting the complaint was raised as a rejection under section 75 and recorded the call. I plan to follow this up tonight in an email with all the magic incantations and keywords I seem to have to include. However, I would still appreciate it being proofread if I could send it to someone via a PM. This is not because I have left any details out, it is just that it will include details around the repair I do not want to put in the public domain at this time, as it may compromise my position.
    • Hobnail please don't take offence . DX covers so many different threads throughout the Forum so tends to be quite short in more ways than one. And while he may have been away from school when public relations were on the curriculum he is right when he said that you do need to understand how these crooks operate to be able to able to beat them in Court. All of us here want our members to win against the parking companies  and the best way is to see how others have handled similar situations. I expect he knows that you may not have looked at many threads on here to give you ideas to better your chances of winning.   You may have heard of the expression "Judge Lottery" on here where some judge comes up with an off the wall decision that virtually no other judge has come up with. So even where you have almost a cast iron case it can all go awry and the way to help circumvent these judges is to have sufficient knowledge and understanding to be able to counter his or her judgement.   I happen to think that no one should lose their case on airport land since the roads  are usually covered by the Road Traffic Act and /or Bye Laws since the land is not relevant land under PoFA. But it is surely better to be over qualified in your knowledge of your case rather than being under prepared. You never know until it is too late when you needed to be over qualified. We all hate it here when one of our members don't win their case so DX in his own sweet way🙂  is just making sure that you have the best possible chance of walking away a winner.   PS I had started to write this before Dx wrote his post just now.  
    • this thread is rather co-incidental to yours - same players same amount.     looks like prac/bw might have looked at credit files to see who also lived there at the time, whom sadly they think be responsible too.   you say like the above thread, EON refunded the £89 earlier as an over payment payment? how strange, and after you moved out now claim its owed.   you are correct in saying you owe nowt, its after you moved out....ruddy fleecers.   as that other thread too, does the PRAC letter state our client EON at the top?        
    • you indicated you had collected stuff from lowells sent your old address? that is what we are interest in?   what is in the vanquis GDPR return (SAR) is pretty much immaterial now as you've not mentioned or referred to any of it in your WS.
    • nope, i will use any tool in my book to make sure you get things right. we give vague answers because it's oneway to make people research and investigate by searching here on CAG .   i've lost count of the times here various CAG members have also asked you to research and read up.   its not done to annoy, it's not done to belittle, it's done because simon is a very very slippery customer and WILL exploit the slightest error.   you are now fast approaching the most important stage - witness statement exchange and unless that's done in a way that naisl him SHUT, she will have a very difficult time understanding and explaining everything infront of and to a judge. You can't be there, only she can and if you don't 1000% understand what is being put and done, how are you going to pass that understanding on?   me and other members can help you all we can and will to the dying end, but if it doesn't sink in...i dread to think of her chances....   dx

I will keep it brief, I did not pay my fine for using a mobile phone whilst driving which due to the non payment went up to £90 and now has gone to a bailiff who have added an £85 admin fee!! Can they do this as I feel their admin fee is excessive?

 

Feedback is appreciated.

For what it is worth, IMO you broke the law, you pay the price.

 

Why did you not pay the fine?

If you can afford it and to avoid the bailiff adding more and possibly dodgy fees, I would pay up, and argue the toss later as you have 6 years to claim back any excessive fees.

 

Others will know more about what they can actually charge

We could do with some help from you.

so what else are we supposed to do in our legal system when someone broke the law but still refuses to pay.

 

sorry, but there would have been fair warning if you failed to meet the courts deadlines.

please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...

Your real purpose must now ge to prevent the bailiff ramping up more fees, which they will do without compunction, the only sure way is to pay them then you can check the site and HMCS for details of what bailiffs are allowed to charge. If you don't they WILL levy sieize and tow your motor without a thought adding more fees and taking the £175 up to £500 or so

We could do with some help from you.

I think you are missing the point here, I accept the fine but find £85 admin fee excessive for a £90 fine!

Thanks for your response, I want to question the bailiff fees but did not know if I could once I had paid it. Now I know I can I have paid the full amount thanks to advice posted on here by people like yourself. Thanks again.

You can now research and query the fees, without fearing the bailiffs knock, and you have 6 years to do so. No one on here condones or supports bailiffs ripping people off with excesive fees, and the primary action for yourself had to be damage limitation.

We could do with some help from you.

Sorry to sound so harsh, but you still got away lightly. You were doing an extremely dangerous thing and think if you wasnt stopped when you did, further down the road could have caused a serious incident costing you a lot more than just bailiffs fees.. It has been an expensive lesson to have learned, I hope its not repeated in future and you stay safe :)
