    • BankFodder    Are you able to help me with whole process if we start legal action ?  If yes i'm fully agree  with 5% expenses and to send the email now    
    • It's a novel weird approach, yes!  But the moot point is that I think they are doing this regularly. Meaning they are repeatedly diddling hmrc out of vat (I mean in conjunction with the builder) They are never going to win their claim that I pay for these works.  They were completely unnecessary.
    • Thank you. I've downloaded and filled out the forms, and I'm ready to send them over. Before I do, could you please clarify the following for me? Once the form has been completed it must be sworn i.e. signed before a Commissioner for Oaths (e.g. a Solicitor), or an Officer of a County Court appointed by the Judge to take affidavits, or a Justice of the Peace (Magistrates Court). (This service is available at most County Court Hearing Centre, free but an appointment may be necessary). The witness to the respondent’s signature must provide a full postal address. If the form has not been properly witnessed, the TEC will not be able to process it. One question - do I need to get a solicitor to swear this? If so, would the solicitor sign on the TE9 form? I don't see a designated space for their signature, so would they just sign anywhere on the form? Please forgive my ignorance on this process. I want to make sure I'm submitting everything properly. Thank you in advance for your help clarifying this for me.

    • So, you want to argue that they didn’t add VAT, and so should have charged you more ….. that’s a novel approach!

    • Hello,

      On 15/1/24 booked appointment with Big Motoring World (BMW) to view a mini on 17/1/24 at 8pm at their Enfield dealership.  

      Car was dirty and test drive was two circuits of roundabout on entry to the showroom.  Was p/x my car and rushed by sales exec and a manager into buying the mini and a 3yr warranty that night, sale all wrapped up by 10pm.  They strongly advised me taking warranty out on car that age (2017) and confirmed it was honoured at over 500 UK registered garages.

      The next day, 18/1/24 noticed amber engine warning light on dashboard , immediately phoned BMW aftercare team to ask for it to be investigated asap at nearest garage to me. After 15 mins on hold was told only their 5 service centres across the UK can deal with car issues with earliest date for inspection in March ! Said I’m not happy with that given what sales team advised or driving car. Told an amber warning light only advisory so to drive with caution and call back when light goes red.

      I’m not happy to do this, drive the car or with the after care experience (a sign of further stresses to come) so want a refund and to return the car asap.

      Please can you advise what I need to do today to get this done. 

      Many thanks

    • We have finally managed to obtain the transcript of this case.

      The judge's reasoning is very useful and will certainly be helpful in any other cases relating to third-party rights where the customer has contracted with the courier company by using a broker.
      This is generally speaking the problem with using PackLink who are domiciled in Spain and very conveniently out of reach of the British justice system.

      Frankly I don't think that is any accident.

      One of the points that the judge made was that the customers contract with the broker specifically refers to the courier – and it is clear that the courier knows that they are acting for a third party. There is no need to name the third party. They just have to be recognisably part of a class of person – such as a sender or a recipient of the parcel.

      Please note that a recent case against UPS failed on exactly the same issue with the judge held that the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 did not apply.

      We will be getting that transcript very soon. We will look at it and we will understand how the judge made such catastrophic mistakes. It was a very poor judgement.
      We will be recommending that people do include this adverse judgement in their bundle so that when they go to county court the judge will see both sides and see the arguments against this adverse judgement.
      Also, we will be to demonstrate to the judge that we are fair-minded and that we don't mind bringing everything to the attention of the judge even if it is against our own interests.
      This is good ethical practice.

      It would be very nice if the parcel delivery companies – including EVRi – practised this kind of thing as well.

Hi all,

Posting this on behalf of a work colleague who received a PCN for parking on a double yellow even though she was displaying a blue badge.


If she sends an informal appeal stating she had blue badge displayed does this reset the 14 day clock?


If they argue the toss what then?


Many thanks for your help.

Are you sure there were not little yellow lines on the pavement, which might indicate between certain hours there is no parking/loading between certain hours. You need to go back to the street, look at the pavement edges and also for a lampost that might indicate you may only park on the double yellow lines between certain hours of the day. In pudsey were i live there is one such street and between 0830 and 1030 and 1630 and 1830 there is no parking. there is a lampost with a small sign about 12 inches wide and six inches high that is on a lampost about 6 foot in the air. I nearly got caught out but i noticed the yellow lines on the edge of the payment so i actively looked for signage regarding parking restrictions

If I were you I would phone the council and ask them why the PCN was issued. They will know, and you can then shape an appeal in respect of that.


To answer your original question, by the letter of the law the discount expires after 14 days, end-of. But in reality, so long as an appeal is received by them before they issue a Notice to Owner (which is 28 days after the PCN) then the discount will still be offered, if the appeal is declined.

Spoke with my colleague today and she says that she has parked on this street before with blue badge no problems, only thing different this time was that she placed the blue badge in the drivers side window which was obviously offside of the kerb. Normally she would place it passenger side. I think i will help her appeal on the grounds of displaying a blue badge and see what happens.

I stopped outside the bank this week to drop my mum off (blue badge holder) I hadn't realised that it was a 'no loading' double yellow line.


Got a knock on the window by enforcement officer and told couldn't leave car where it was - he was fair and let me tell mum I was moving car and watched me move off while taking photos of another car parked in same place.


When I got back to bank, other car had ticket on it and enforcement officer asked if I had found somewhere to park - which I had but meant it was a walk for mum.


The bit I had missed were the feint yellow lines on the kerb!


It was nice of him and I'm sure, had I not been with the car and had there not been the blue badge on display, then he would have issued a valid ticket. Perhaps it was a similar situation in the OPs case.

All that means is that she hasn't been caught before, not that it was ok to park there.
