    • Hi,   I have been informed that I will get a £1900 backdated payment for UC and that it is being processed. However, I will not see a penny of it. They intend to give it all to Bristol City Council for a housing benefit overpayment of £2900, despite that alleged overpayment being the subject of a tribunal as I don't owe them the money. The housing benefit overpayment occurred when I moved to a different location to get access to my treatment quicker, this was when I was on ESA. The new council told me I needed to apply for UC but the DWP wrote to me at my new address informing me that they had reviewed my claim and were going to keep me on ESA and that I need to apply for housing benefit from the council. I went round in circles for months, during this time my old council paid my housing benefit and then raised an invoice for the so called overpayment.   I can not tell you how sick I feel. I have accrued so much debt living off credit cards during this period to pay for food and bills. I had really hoped I could use the backdated payment to pay off some of the debt and get a little more financially buoyant. What a totally perverse system. They wont use any of the £1900 backdated payment to pay the £550 remaining for the advance I had while waiting for my UC claim to be processed after pushing me off ESA. So those payments for the loan will still be deducted from me monthly. It just couldn't be any worse. I don't have the words.   I had intended to make a donation to this site because you guys have been very helpful and I am very grateful to you all. I'm sorry that won't be happening now.    When did Britain become such a terrible country?   James        
    • defence is not due till day 33 follow post 7 carefully.   you can use recorded post for the cpr  but as they never reply anyway a waste of money just use 1st class stamp with free proof of posting from any po counter.
    • The Defendant contends that the particulars of claim vague and are generic in nature. The Defendant accordingly sets out its case below and relies on CPR r 16.5 (3) in relation to any particular allegation to which a specific response has not been made.   1. Paragraphs 1 is noted and accepted that the Defendant has in the past had financial dealings with  Vanquis.I do not recall the precise details or agreement and have sought verification from the claimant and the claimants solicitor by way of a CPR 31.14 and section 78 request who are yet to fully comply.   2. Paragraph 2 is denied. The claimant pleads that the defendant failed to maintain the required payment, arrears began to accrue. Given that the claimant has failed to comply with my CPR 31.14 request and failed to evidence such fact and would not be in a position as Assignee of debt to know the details of any alleged breach. The defendant has never received a Default Notice from the original creditor. As the claimants plead in their particulars precise knowledge of the default, they are put to strict proof to evidence such fact.   3. Paragraph 3 is denied.The Defendant contends that no notice of assignment pursuant to s.136 of the Law of Property Act & s.82 A of the CCA1974 has ever been served by the Claimant as alleged or at all.   4. It is therefore denied with regards to the Defendant owing any monies to the Claimant, the Claimant has failed to provide any evidence of assignment/balance/breach requested by CPR 31. 14, therefore the Claimant is put to strict proof to:   (a) show how the Defendant has entered into an agreement; and (b) show and evidence any cause of action and service of a Default Notice or termination notice; and (c) show how the Defendant has reached the amount claimed for; and (d) show how the Claimant has the legal right, either under statute or equity to issue a claim;   5. After receiving this claim I requested by way of a CPR 31.14 request and a section 78 request for copies of any documents referred to within the Claimants' particulars to establish what the claim is for. To date they have failed to comply to my CPR 31.14 request and also my section 78 request and remain in default with regards to this request.   6. As per Civil Procedure Rule 16.5(4), it is expected that the Claimant prove the allegation that the money is owed.   7. On the alternative, as the Claimant is an assignee of a debt, it is denied that the Claimant has the right to lay a claim due to contraventions of Section 136 of the Law of Property Act and Section 82A of the consumer credit Act 1974.   8. By reasons of the facts and matters set out above, it is denied that the Claimant is entitled to the relief claimed or any relief.
    • I will get my son to upload the video when he gets in. No down hill slope just a small  gradient and from the turning he came out of its maybe 15 shops until the traffic lights. Maybe it didn't get faster but he feels like it did (not clear on the video)  I'm picking him up from work tonight I'll pay attention to the gradient when I go back.   He'd only changed up to 2nd so he wasn't driving fast    Upside he knows now to always be prepared for ice

Hi there, I would really appreciate some advice on weather my parking ticket will stand up in court.

I was driving along a road and there was an unmarked police car directly behind me. I pull over into a disabled parking space, the police car pulls along side me and aggressively shouts "where's your badge mate" and then proceeds to give me a ticket for "parking" in a disabled parking bay. I claimed that I pulled over to look at the street numbers to find an address (I'm a taxi driver) This is not strictly true but in all honesty I was not aware it was a disabled bay, if I had got out of car the first thing I would have done would be to check, and then after discovering it was disabled I would have driven off. I wish I had said this to the police as this was the truth!

Anyhow, my query is does stopping constitute as parking? I had litterally been there for about 6 seconds when he made contact with me. Am I being done for 'intension to park' or for actually parking?

Any help would be fantastic:)

Does sound a bit silly if what you say is true, I think for a parking ticket to be valid it has to say the vehicle was observed at a time and then for a period of time between say 09.51 to 09.55!

What does it actually say on the ticket?

However having said that you cannot stop on double yellow lines at all unless loading/unloading or letting passengers alight, so I suspect the same rules apply to disabled bays.

Was the engine running ? Illegal to leave a car with the engine let alone park it so it must have been waiting and not parked.
