    • I have never heard of any such law. Please post a link to what you have read online that explains this law. And please confirm whether you were ever married to or in a formal Civil Partnership with your Ex.
    • Today has been hectic so  have been unable to complete the whole thing. If you now understand it and want to go ahead with a complaint to the IPC, fine. If not then I won't need to finish it. But below is my response to your request  on post 64. No you don't seem stupid, the Protection of Freedoms Act isn't easy to get one 's head around at first. The part of the above Act referring to private parking is contained within Schedule 4 which you can find online under the Protection of Freedoms Act 2012. Section 9 of SCH.4 relates to how the parking scrotes have to perform so that they can transfer their right to pursue the keeper from the driver when the PCN is still unpaid after a certain amount of time. In your case the PCN was posted to you the keeper and arrived within 14 days from when they claimed a breach occurred. That means they complied with first part of the Act. The driver at that time was still responsible to pay the charge demanded on the PCN and PCM now have to wait for 28 days to elapse before they can write and advise the keeper that as the charge has not been paid, that they now have the right to pursue the keeper. They claim they sent the first PCN on the 13th March, five days after the alleged breach and it arrived on Friday 15th March. So to comply with the Act they have to observe Section 8 subsection 2f   (f)warn the keeper that if, after the period of 28 days beginning with the day after that on which the notice is given— (i)the amount of the unpaid parking charges specified under paragraph (d) has not been paid in full, and (ii)the creditor does not know both the name of the driver and a current address for service for the driver, the creditor will (if all the applicable conditions under this Schedule are met) have the right to recover from the keeper so much of that amount as remains unpaid. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------So the first PCN was deemed to arrive on the 15th March and for 28 days to have elapsed is when the time is right for them to write and say you are now liable as keeper. So they sent the next PCN on the 12th April which is too early as you could still have paid until midnight of the 12th. So the earliest their second PCN should have gone to you was  Saturday 13th April so more likely on Monday 15th April. The IPC Code of Conduct states "Operators must be aware of their legal obligations and implement the relevant legislation and guidance when operating their businesses." So by issuing your demand a day early, they have broken the Act, the IPC Code of Conduct, the DVLA agreement  to abide by the law and the Code of Conduct not to mention a possible breach of your GDPR .   I asked the IPC  in the letter on an earlier to confirm that  CPMs Notice misrepresenting the law was a standard practice for all of PCMs Notices or just certain ones. Their distribution  may depend on when they were issued and whether they were issued in certain localities or for certain breaches. Whichever method used is a serious breach of the Law and could lead to PCM being black listed by the DVLA . One would expect that after that even if the IPC did not cancel your ticket, PCM could not risk going to Court with you nor even pursuing you any further.
    • thanks jk2054 - do you know any law i can quote (regarding timeframe) when sending the email as if i cant they'll probably just say no like the normal staff have done? thanks.
    • I lived there with her up until I gave notice. She took over the tenancy in her name. I had a letter from the council and a refund of the council tax for 1 month.    She took on the bills and tenancy and only paid the rent. No utility bills or council tax were paid once she took it over. She will continue to not pay bills in her new house which I'm now having to pay or will have to. I have looked online I believe the police and solicitors are going by the partner law to make me liable.   I have always paid my bills and ensured her half was paid then see how much free money is over.   She spends all her money on payday loans and rubbish then panics about the rent. I usually end up paying it or having to get her a loan.   Stupidly in my name but at the time it was because she was my partner. I even paid to move her and clean and decorate her old house so she got the deposit back. It cost me £3000 due to the mess she always leaves behind.

    • 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.

MBNA

 

I'm in the middle of a PPI claim (have been self-employed since 1995 but discovered I've been paying PPI on my credit card since I took out the card in 2003). Today, I had the most annoying letter, from MBNA, saying the following:

 

'You may recall that we recently wrote to you and requested that you complete and return a questionnaire to provide further information in relation to your PPI complaint. To date we have not received your questionnaire.

I have completed a review of the account based on the information we currently hold and am unable to uphold your complaint or issue a refund on the premiums you paid.

This is our final response to your complaint. If you remain dissatisfied you now have the right to refer your complaint to the Financial Ombudsman, which you must do within 6 months o the date of this letter. For more information about how to do this, please read the enclose Financial Ombudsman's leaflet. Their address is as follow:

 

[FO address]

Yours sincerely

Rachel Nixon'

 

This letter is astonishing and annoying as:

 

1) There is no telephone number to call them up about this letter.

 

2) In early-Jan, I started a PPI complaint against MNBA. I called them for some basic info and said I'd send them a filled out copy of a PPI form (which I found online via a BBC site). They said not to bother as they would fill one out for me. The inference was that this was a 'service', that they would speed up proceedings as they had all the facts and figures to hand. Stupidly, I trusted them. I actually waited around 10 days for the form to appear and all that was on it was my name and surname. No other data. So they had simply slowed the process down by ten days.

 

3) With the form was a letter, demanding that I fill out the form within 21 days, or the matter would be closed. I don't ever recall entering into a contract with MBNA saying I had to jump to their timetable. This was especially rich as they had wasted 10 days - and had, in fact, sent a follow-up letter, apologising for *their* delay in sending out necessary information. When the apology came, I assumed something else would be arriving in the post from them - it didn't.

 

4) As I was busy with work at the end of Jan, it wasn't until around the 20-day mark that I was able to get down to the form. I actually called them, first of all, for some data (the start date of my credit card contract). At that point, they had every opportunity to say the case was closed, due to some strange time limit they'd imposed without my permission. They did not.

 

5) I spent the best part of a working day looking through the questions on the form, then posted it to them.

 

6) On 23 January, I received the above letter, dated 15 January (when did post ever take that long to arrive?).

 

...I have never, in my life, come across what feels like such a blatant attempt to renege on responsibilities. This, coupled with a lack of reply address, gives me an even lower opinion of MBNA and their insurance companies. Am I within my rights to go back to them? I don't want to go to the FOS - I'm a busy person and would like a speedy resolution to this matter (I estimate MBNA owe me within the region of £4000. However, if there is no other option but to go to the FOS, is there anything I can say to the FOS about these frankly dodgy practices?

Sadly this is happening with ALL the banks.

 

You can of course reject the decision made by MBNA - if you want to do this, then I suggest you download the complaint form from the FOS website, complete it and return it to Ms Nixon and ask her to stop pussyfooting around and investigate your claim with due dligence. Perhaps head your accompanying letter with the heading OFFICIAL COMPLAINT.

 

Other than that you have 2 choices - FOS which is usually a long winded process or issuing your own claim through the courts.

If you read the interpretive calculations thread below sadly I think you could be in for the long haul and will be much much more angry at the end of this than when you started.

 

Your only way to get back from them what they owe is patience and a dont give up attitude. They are counting on you being busy and not putting the effort in. Its what they do.

 

FSA and FOS quite frankly need spoon feeding. They will believe the bank always over you. They are part of the establishment as is the bank.

 

I have been at this since last summer and its progressing slowly. I got the uphold as have many others. If you get the right redress is another matter entirely.

 

Hope this post isnt too negative. Just they want you to get miffed off and give up. They are upsetting you and winning. Cup of coffee time and mental note to oneself the way to get even and hurt them is by winning your claim by fair or foul.

 

You are at the start of a process that could take two years or more to resolve. They are playing on joe publics short attention span.
