    • I have got an  independent expert report which clearly states it is a manufacturing fault, which DFS have been made aware of. My point is that as a huge retailer of leather sofas with leather peeling  being a common complaint to me it seems evident they are aware it is a manufacturing fault on their side. Yet they play games with customers and worse of all try their level best to get the customer to believe that it is their fault due to oils or creams they are using. Even if one is to believe that every day creams etc can cause this damage then in any event the sofas are not fit for purpose. Surely they are merely playing a numbers game banking on the fact that most complainants will not follow through with legal action. Yet what about the anguish and distress they cause to customers in the process. To me this shows alot of contempt towards consumers and is clearly unethical.

    • Thank you, @lookinforinfo. I have updated the VCS v Ward case as below:   VCS v Ward     1.       This case is often quoted by the claimant as assisting their case. However, in this instance it actually assists mine. It is contended that the act of stopping a vehicle does not amount to parking. This predatory operation pays no regard to the byelaws at all. It is likely that this Claimant may try to rely upon two 'trophy case' wins, namely VCS v Crutchley and/or VCS v Ward, neither of which were at an Airport location, which is not 'relevant land'. The airport land is subject to the Airport Byelaws as specified in 'Section 63' of the Airports Act 1986 [EXHIBIT A]. Both cases involve flawed reasoning, and the Courts were wrongly steered by this Claimant's representative; there are worrying errors in law within those cases, such as an irrelevant reliance upon the completely different Supreme Court case. These are certainly not the persuasive decisions that this Claimant may suggest.   63 Airport byelaws. (2) Any such byelaws may, in particular, include byelaws— (d) for regulating vehicular traffic anywhere within the airport, except on roads within the airport to which the road traffic enactments apply, and in particular (with that exception) for imposing speed limits on vehicles within the airport and for restricting or regulating the parking of vehicles or their use for any purpose or in any manner specified in the byelaws;

    • Hi @BankFodder
      Sorry for only updating you now, but after your guidance with submitting the claim it was pretty straight forward and I didn't want to unnecessarily waste your time. Especially with this guide you wrote here, so many thanks for that
      So I issued the claim on day 15 and they requested more time to respond.
      They took until the last day to respond and denied the claim, unsurprisingly saying my contract was with Packlink and not with them.
       
      I opted for mediation, and it played out very similarly to other people's experiences.
       
      In the first call I outlined my case, and I referred to the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 as the reason to why I do in fact have a contract with them. 
       
      In the second call the mediator came back with an offer of the full amount of the phone and postage £146.93, but not the court costs. I said I was not willing to accept this and the mediator came across as a bit irritated that I would not accept this and said I should be flexible. I insisted that the law was on my side and I was willing to take them to court. The mediator went back to Hermes with what I said.
       
      In the third call the mediator said that they would offer the full amount. However, he said that Hermes still thought that I should have taken the case against Packlink instead, and that they would try to recover the court costs themselves from Packlink.
       
      To be fair to them, if Packlink wasn't based in Spain I would've made the claim against them instead. But since they are overseas and the law lets me take action against Hermes directly, it's the best way of trying to recover the money.
       
      So this is a great win. Thank you so much for your help and all of the resources available on this site. It has helped me so much especially as someone who does not know anything about making money claims.
       
      Many thanks, stay safe and have a good Christmas!

ParkingEye Parking Fine- Can they invoice/fine me for buying a ticket after 1 hour of entering a park & display car park

I parked my car in a private car park but I didnt buy a ticket from the machine that request you to enter the Car Reg. I waited in my car until my brother turned up but before I left the car park, noticed there is a camera that appears to scan car number plates so what I did was, entered my Car Reg and bought a ticket for 4 hours. I bought the ticket about a hour after i entered the car park and about 5 minutes before I left. I only stayed at the car park for less then 2 hours.

 

I know i can ignore their invoive but I would like to know can they say that I am in breach of contract if i have paid for the time i stayed in the car park before leaving. No one has reported this situation before and wondering what are eveyone's thoughts are or has anyone ever done this before. If this work, we may have found a loophole where you may be able to go back and buy a ticket for your stay LOL

 

I do not want to respond to them saying I wasnt the driver, I want to respond saying I am not in breach of contract and they should only contact me with evidence that I am. Any advice is welcome.

 

Thank you.

I think that if you have paid for a length of time which is greater than the time you stayed there then you are fine.

However read up about Parking Eye and the others and the status of their charges.

Read up on the CAGMag about parking charges as well

They have suffered no financial loss as a result of you parking there. They have no case. Ignore all the letters until they eventually go away, no matter how threatening they sound.

Thanks.

 

Quick update. So far nothing from them. Those of you in the similar position, if i dont update again, then that mean i have not had anything from the company requesting to pay for a parking invoice.
