    • Thank you both. My defence was as vague as their Claim. 1. I am the defendant in this claim and litigant in person. All allegations made by the claimant are denied. 2. The defendant does not recognise the alleged agreement xxxxxxxxxxx as mentioned in the particulars of claim therefore it is denied that any such agreement exists. 3. The defendant has requested copies of the alleged agreement under Data Subject Access Request, Consumer Credit act 1974 s.77/8 and Civil Procedure Rules 31.4 but to date the claimant has failed to provide a copy of this document. 4.The defendant has also requested copies of the default and termination notice for the alleged account xxxxxxxxx as required to legally enforce the alleged debt, but again the claimant has failed to provide either. 5. In addition the defendant has requested copies of statements for the alleged account xxxxxxx showing the amount of monies allegedly owed to the claimant. To Date these have not been provided. 6. The defendants view is that this claim is vexatious and an abuse of process as the claimant has failed to provide any documentation to support their claim and respectfully requests that the said claim be struck out.   As an aside, I noticed that the 'statement' they did provide had a different figure on it to what they are claiming, so I will hopefully be able to flesh out quite a bit in my skeleton argument.   Spam 
    • 80% refund sounds like a very good deal* as they are entitled by law to deduct an amount from the refund to reflect the use you have had of the item over the 12 months it has been working.   So you could argue that a deduction of 20% for one year indicates that they expect it to last for at least five years, and probably longer.     * Think about it this way - would you pay 80% of the value of a brand new iPad to buy a second-hand one that somebody else has been using for over a year, or would you expect to get it cheaper than that?
    • Hi WoodDD.. Neither Case was cited in the VSC WS... however, MR D form VCS threw in VCS v Ward & Idle for the Judge to consider during the hearing. The Judge did not have time to review this. I believe he may have had a quick scan but decided it wasn't relevant at the time.. By not relevant, he didn't elaborate if it was not admissible or anything else..   Hope this helps..   Regards Tom     
    • Can I  ask what you mean by "... they recommended a firm... "?   I ask because I'm a bit surprised that Social Services are even allowed to do that.  (I may be mistaken and that this is common practice, but it seems a bit odd to me).   If they did do so and the work has turned out to be sub-standard and unsatisfactory, I would have no hesitation in making a formal complaint to the council and also to my (or your friend's) local councillor(s).  You acted on the council's recommendation and you should have a reasonable expectation that the firm recommended should be reliable and professional.  I would also insist that trading standards be asked to investigate this firm.  (Where I live our local county council trading standards department runs an approved trader database).   A complaint to the council might not directly assist you but it might help to prevent others being taken in by this firm.
    • Hello Susan, welcome to CAG.   Hopefully Paul Walton will see this message and reply to you, but it would also be a good idea to start a new thread of your own so we can advise on anything else connected with your refund.   Best, HB

    • 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!

It would be very helpful to build up a picture of which parking companies manage which retailers carparks.

 

If you know that XXX supermarket is managed by YYYY parking company, please let us know here.

 

We aren't looking for individual carparks. Presumably each carpark owner only deals with one carpark operator.

 

Thanks

Morrisons in Stone, Staffs, [my local], is Parking Eye, but their store at Newcastle under Lyme, about 9 miles away, is a different company, and patrolled on foot, I believe.

 

Unless it has been changed recently, of course, I'm certain that somebody will let us know if it has.

Co-op in Stone, Staffs, [formerly a Somerfield], is Town and Country Parking, patrolled on foot.

This is all very helpful. Thanks.

 

Please keep it coming - and yes, retail parks as well.

 

Especially interested to know who is still using Parking Eye because we will be sending them copies of the judgment.

 

In fact I have just called Morrisons and they say that they are aware of the judgment.

I'm not convinced that each supermarket chain has the same PPC.

 

In Longton, Stoke on Trent, the retail park which houses Tesco, Argos and Next is UKPC, [been there this morning]

 

Just across the road is a smaller park with Matalan and Sports Direct, and the signage on that car park has "Town and Countrry Parking on behalf of Matalan and Sports Direct" writ at the bottom.

 

Around the corner is Lidl which is Euro.

 

Been in each one to check since 0900 this morning, so bang up to date.

 

The Tesco/Argos/Next car park has been about four different PPC's in the last six years or so, but always the same man doing the tickets, so he presumably is transferred over, [i wonder who "oversee's" that? Tesco presumably].

 

That CP always has the present company signage all over, like a rash - but this morning, there isn't a PPC sign to be seen, and it is a big car park - I had to locate him, and look at what he has on his jacket and epaullettes.

In a retail park it would be the landlord ( i.e somebody like Savilles) who would hire ( and fire!) the PPC.

 

Retail parks very often have conditional planning permission such that parking must be free. Additionally one could check the rates being paid for the car park. If any revenue is being generated from it, planning permission conditions aside for the moment, then they should be paying an increased rate. I feel sure that the Local Authority concerned would be very happy to increase the rate.

Not got a ticket but the signs at Asda Fleetwood seem to be a little different. Parking Charge of £70.00. No discount for early Payment and an admin charge of £10.00 if not paid within 28 day.

 

Now the big question is:

 

Within 28 days of when? It coud be within 28 days starting with the date of the recipients death.

Surfer - pray tell how. As impoverished daughter has had 2 pcns for this shower while shopping in Aldi to save a few quid I am now on the case and determined to get natural justice - might even admit I was the driver so can take control. She paid the first in a panic but have told her not to pay second. 1 hour parking for 2 families to do a shop ( wife goes with her) is just a means of making money.

 

Prepared to go all the way to court

At the Morrisons in question, they installed Parking Meters so I wrote a letter to the local rag highlighting that the tickets were invoices and unenforceable and quoted extracts from CAG. The following week the meters were shut down. That shut off a considerable source of revenue for Parking Eye! :-)
