    • I've had another look at their WS and as it definitely states that they are pursuing you as the keeper in point 19 they must lose their case because their PCN is not compliant with PoFA on two counts.  First is the fact that they must have a parking period and it is quite clear that entering and leaving the car park does not constitute a parking period since some of the time the motorist is either driving around looking for a parking spot then leaving the spot and driving to the exit. All that takes time so that is one fail. The other fail is in their wording when they are trying to transfer the liability of the alleged debt from the driver to the keeper. They are supposed to include at Schedule 4 s9 [2][f] this "(if all the applicable conditions under this Schedule are met)". That in itself makes it non compliant but the fact that they haven't got a parking period means they haven't met the applicable conditions.   Looking at their contract, the names of the signatories and their positions in their respective  companys have been redacted. You do need strict proof of who actually signed. There is no specific authorisation from the Client to allow Court action in pursuit of non payers. In section 11 which is like an addendum it states" the Company shall provide parking control" but doesn't state if that includes legal pursuit as well and it does not appear to be signed.   The entrance sign does not include the T&Cs so it is only an offer to treat  not  an offer of a contract. Their only appears to be one type of sign inside the car park which is unusual and a lot of the signage is in too small a print to be acceptable in Law as capable of forming a contract. The signage also includes unlawful demands for extra charges which makes the whole contract invalid.  PoFA 2012 made it quite clear that the maximum  amount claimed was the amount on the sign. This has been reinforced by the Private Parking Code of Practice which states that no extra charges can be made over the signage figure. Indeed a Government Minister is quoted as saying that the extra charges demanded by parking companies are "a rip off" yet they still include them. They are an abuse of process and should be subject to adding exemplary costs payable to the motorist to act as a deterrent to rogue car parking companies.   They have no planning permission for their signs and ANPR cameras which means that in addition to them being unlawful because of the extra charges they are also illegal because they have not been given permission to be there under  the Town and Country [Advertisements} Regulations  1969. They are supposed to comply with the Law and the IPC code of Conduct and they have done neither. The new Private Parking Code of Practice  draws attention to it as well  s14.1 [g]  "g) responsibility for obtaining relevant consents e.g. planning or advertising consents relating to signs."   So it is not as if this is a secret-since it has been out since February 7th 2022 . You would have thought that as this Code was designed to root out the rogues in the industry that the parking industry would already have made adjustments to their activities in order to align themselves with the will of Parliament as proposed by Minister Neil O'Brien  who said   "The publication of this Code therefore marks the start of an adjustment period in which parking companies will be expected to follow as many of these new rules as possible."   Ignorance of the Law is no excuse but even Gladstones are surely aware that the extra charges are unlawful  it beggars belief that they can aver that they have told the truth on their WS.
    • Evening all,   I am looking for a little bit of advice, any would be appreciated. I am a bit hesitant in giving all the in's and out's as I am not sure of the forums procedures and I do not want to compromise my situation.   Basically as a result of a few issues in my life inflicted/self inflicted I ended up in a bad situation financially. A company brought a debt off a lender I had used and took me to court, I really mis-managed this and although I attended court with a case the verdict went against me. I accepted this but never heard anything back from them and admittedly as I was struggling didn't pro actively seek them out to make payment. So, on my Credit report I had a CCJ due to expire Sept. 2022, which I associated to that particular incident. Anyhow, I have recently received a Notice of Application for Attachment of earnings order, however, this is regarding a completely different debt/Court procedure to the one I participated in. The creditor, to my knowledge has never contacted me and until this week I have never received any correspondence to this case from the creditor or county court.    Basically, I was just after a bit of advice, on how to go about this. I am worried that if my employer is advised of the CCJ, it makes my position uncomfortable, maybe untenable which will only be negative to my situation.    So can I still contest this and possibly get it removed via the courts, can I delay it for 3 months to get it statue barred, do I pay the whole amount (to a company whom brought it at a pittance) or do pay it off and if so, can the figure be negotiated and how long would it affect me credit score?   I apologise for the number of questions, and appreciate any advice. My concern is the application ruining a very good job for me.   Thanks in advance
    • Thanks, I am worried because on the citizenship application they ask if I received warning, I am not sure if TFL warning this the same police warning or not??

I doubt it will create enough to even cover what it cost to organise, let alone any profit!

Life is like an echo, it all returns......The good, the bad, the false, the true......So if you give life the best you have, the best will come back to you.

as the weeks and months go by after the closing ceremony, the legacy, and the soundbites by cameron will be slowly forgotten as the true cost to the uk starts to come to light......its funny how we can always find billions to highlight the divisions in this country, yet, govt continues to state that there is no money for the sick, ill, unemployed, nhs, police, army, etc etc....zero growth, zero hope, zero jobs, mass unemployment, families struggling to put food on the table, and I could go on and on......never mind after all this at least we will have a nation of budding athletes, nothing will change

changing the status quo in this country is an almost impossible task, with nearly all political parties beholden to the capitalist society, where politicians are in the pockets of big business, whilst the rest us work for peanuts, the rich get richer and the poor get poorer,short of a revolution, and i am too old for it, then nothing is gonna alter

Well if that's all Rio De Janeiro has to offer us in 4 years, I think I will give the opening and closing ceremonies a miss.

 

We have beat them hands down in the entertainment stakes.

 

 

If all else fails, kick them where it hurts and SOD'EM;)

Boring and predictable closing ceremony starring a load of old farts, Brian May can still rip the strings, but that hair? Get it cut mate you're an embarrassment, and who was the ugly bint trying to sing Freddy Mercury's part?

 

Back to normal soon, maybe Stratford will pick up a bit now the rubbish is more or less over, It's been like a ghost town these last three weeks.

IMO the country could spend every penny it has on the sick, unemployed, nhs, police etc etc but many people would still find reasons to complain about something else. so we spent a load of money on the Olympics if we hadnt that money would noit have been spent on the NHS etc etc, the olympics gave a lot of people a lot of pleasure, and TBH we as a country cannot spend all of our time worrying about people less fortunate than ourselves so it may have been a waste of money in some peoples opinions but wouldnt it be boring if we always only did the sensible, practical greatest good to the country as a whole option.

Just to say I think the closing ceremony was better than the opening ceremony

Oh absolutely! Let's not give the Spoonie's or the Wheelie's a second thought, and as for the long term unemployed!! No, it's just so......Not De rigueur!

 

Lets spend much more time ensuring that corporate business has the annual windfall it so richly deserves, TBH I don't think they get anywhere near enough in the way of tax breaks to prop up their 'near pauper' existence.

 

I totally agree with you, about it being boring, lets disregard the feckless morons, and consign them to into oblivion, then we can get on with our interesting lives.
