    • Hi, I have found this group very helpful hence I am here seeking help and advice.   I got myself into a situation where I have now more than £50k in unsecured debts (personal loans & credit cards) and things are now getting out of control as I am struggling to make payments. This is purely my own created situation and I am taking 100% responsibility for it. I am keen to get out of this situation as soon as possible hence I would appreciate any help and advice in this process. I am employed at the moment and don’t want to risk going into IVA or bankruptcy as this would risk losing my job. Being sole bread earner of my family, I cannot afford to lose my job. I have been trying to keep up with the payments so far and had few missed payments instances until 3/4 months ago but got caught up with missed payments somehow using my savings. All my debts are still with original lenders. However I know I am getting into same situation again shortly and won’t be able to get out of it again. I have started exploring Debt Management Plan (DMP) option through StepChange but haven’t submitted it yet. Based on budgeting, I have around £820 available to make payments to all lenders after taking care of all other essential expenses. This is definitely lot more affordable than what I am currently paying to different lenders. 1. Is DMP right option for me in current situation? 2. what are the negative consequences of availing DMP? 3. is there something else that I can do to get out of this situation? I’m determined to clear out all my debts but need bit of breathing space and time. Let me know please if you need any additional information. Thanks in advance for all your help and guidance. MM

    • 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 Michael, thanks for that quick reply I will send off my appeal now. :-D

 

Dont send the ticket back. Keep it as proof.

PUTTING IT IN WRITING & KEEPING COPIES IS A MUST FOR SUCCESS

Hi parked on double yellow lines with blue badge showing. Parked there before no problem, got ticket today with the above contravention. Looked up the codes for this on their web site but can't find any.

 

Can anyone help. Thanks.

When you park on yellow lines or in other places where there is a time restriction, you need to display the blue parking clock to show your time of arrival. Were you displaying the clock?

 

The code for 'Parked in a restricted street during prescribed hours' should be 01

 

Was there also a letter suffix, ie 01x

Hi Michael, there was no code on the ticket, just the alleged contravention. They say they observed the car for 12 mins.

Wait a couple of days and then go here:

https://parkingin.sheffield.gov.uk/live-pgc-user/

 

to see what photos they have. You may be able to check what the clock said.

 

You have nothing to lose making an informal appeal. If they reject it they will extend the discount by a further 14 days.

 

Some councils are more lenient to BB holders and will cancel, as long as it is your first offence

Contact the office and ask for their assistance in finding them, there will be a telephone number on the ticket and the site.

 

If you don't get it sorted soon, the price will go up.

contact council if they say nothing is owing get it in writing otherwise they may get carried away with the whole thing and fees will be high at a later date

If i have helped in any way hit my star.

any advice given is based on experience and learnt from this site :-)

How long ago was the FPN issued? Does it have a date by which you have to make payment before they progress to further recovery action?

 

Could it be that the council system is showing no sums owed because they have proceeded to further recovery action and so have withdrawn the option to pay online?

Hi All, I parked outside the Crucible in a disable bay yesterday 22/04/2013. I put up my blue Badge and time card, I was allowed up to three hours. I came back 2 hours later and I had a ticket on my car. There is no code for the offense I was alleged to have breached but this "Parked in a suspended bay/space or part of a bay/space.

 

When I looked someone had placed a yellow plastic sign about 7' up on the bay post telling you the time you could park up to, saying this bay was suspended. This sign was not there when I parked my car. What are my options.

 

Thanks Geocyper.

Write a letter of appeal. Something like this:

Hi all, any help appreciated.

 

I recieved a PCN this was for "Parked in a restricted street during prescribe hours"

 

I did not see the sign when I drove in to the road, this was because it was behind another sign, speed restriction. I parked on a single yellow looked for sign but could not see one.

 

Any way I appealed and sent all pictures in. this was refused now have a notice to Keeper, trying to compile an appeal

The only defence I can see is if the signs were not visible enough - but without some images to look at, or at least the location, how can anyone tell you what they think?

 

Hi Jamberson, thanks for replying I don't know how to download Picts
