    • Hello Friends. I cannot believe it but im being evicted again, i was given a section 48 notice 4 months into my tenancy. I already went through this process last year, i overstayed in my last place by a few months and left on 6th Oct 2023. I knew to check all the documentation that they sent to see if the notice is legal, it looks like it is. I took this place out of desperation as i had to vacate that last place. I hate this place so im not bothered about leaving it.    These cowboys lied to me when i viewed the house. I told the agent that i was evicted from my last house and naturally i dont want this to happen again. She said  the landlord has no plans to sell the house. What she did not tell me was that the landlord had tried to sell the house last year and failed. So it looks like they have used me to fill in the short period of time until its time to sell again. I did see it advertised online.   I told them im not in a strong enough financial position to find another property, cost of a deposit, 1 months rent and moving costs.   They have told me they are starting legal proceedings. They have sent me an invoice for £395 but i have not even received the court paperwork.    I dont like the job im in so i have decided to relocate to a better job and hopefully find cheaper rentals.   I can post a copy of the notice if needed.  
    • yes a judgement sorry I used the wrong word before
    • Hi So on Friday I received a copy on email from the claimants solicitors with an attached relief from sanctions application - on the basis that the solicitor missed the deadline for the additional directions and it was an oversight on their part and that the claimant should therefore not suffer.   They then attached a copy of the deed of assignment and a new witness statement.  They stated that they would be happy to delay the court date by 28 days but that they believed both parties were ready for the court case on 7th June. My first question, is there anything I need to do or do I just sit and wait to see what is decided?  Secondly, is it likely the judge will be aware that the claimants solicitors did exactly the same in the set aside court case (ie they filed their court bundle late and applied for relief from sanctions on the morning of the court date, and my solicitors had no choice but to agree because they threatened to strike my case out because my solicitors had only filed their court bundle by email and not post).  This is a clear pattern of how these solicitors work rather than it being a one off oversight! 
    • I shall find the link later this evening. It was about couples not living together but being liable for council tax. I was never married or in an official civil partnership. We lived together for 18 months, I then left for 6 months for work but continued to pay my half of the bills and rent.   We then split up I gave up my tenancy she took it all in her name. She then decided to move in with me 5 months later. She then banned me from going back to my house eventually let me back in then called the police. Took over my house and is now only paying the rent not the bills so I will be landed with those to. So over the course of our relationship I have ended up paying her debts for 5 different addresses, personal loans and credit cards. If I refuse to pay them she makes more accusations.

    • 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

I recently received a letter from London south east, south and central courts informing me that I owed £312 and had 10 days to pay in full to avoid various punishments. The letter mainly consisted of ways to make the payment with no information on the charge, so, I phoned the information line and found out that the fine stemmed from a bus fare in Camberwell on 20.8.2010 and I had to go though my local statutory court in order to progress, I was told the fine would be frozen for 28 days to allow me to appeal.

 

So.. as far as I can remember this is what happened in 2010. For some reason I did not use/have my oyster card and paid the bus driver in cash and walked to my seat without taking the paper ticket. 5-10 minutes later 2 inspectors came onto the bus and wanted to see my ticket. I wasn't too concerned as I knew my ticket would be somewhere and the bus driver could verify that I had handed over the money. Unfortunately the paper ticket didn't turn up and the inspectors told me the drivers word was not enough (I witnessed the driver telling them I had paid and unsuccessfully looking for the ticket), they took my current address, we all got off the bus at my stop and it felt like we had come to an impasse. Eventually they said they would have to take my word for it and I left feeling the incident was resolved (which lasted until very recently).

 

I believe what has happened is the TFL chose to fine me after all but I had moved house on 22.10.2010 and received no correspondence until now. What I would like to know is:

 

1. Do I have a chance to appeal the full payment? as a student I cant afford the £312.

2. What have I missed? what is TFLs procedure, if there was an original fine that was a reasonable amount could I pay that instead? (although even that feels a little unreasonable)

3. How do I even go about approaching my local court about this, the person on the information line was not very helpful

 

I don't know if its relevant but I have had an oyster card with no penalties which I think dates back to roughly 2010 if that would help at all. Also I can prove the date I moved into a new address on 22.10.2010. Thanks for any help and I hope I'm posting in the right place and so on.

Hello there.

 

I'm sorry you haven't had any replies yet and hope that some of the forum regulars will be along later.

 

With the court, are you saying that you're going to sign a statutory declaration to have the case heard in your presence, or has something else happened please?

 

My best, HB

TfL will not have imposed any fine, only the Courts can do that. It appears that TfL issued a Summons for not having a valid ticket and failing to pay, this was heard in your absence and the Magistrates found you guilty, imposed a fine & costs and you haven't paid anything.

 

If you are adamant that you were not reported and know nothing about this matter, you need to go to your local Magistrates Court and make a Statutory Declaration on oath that you truthfully know nothing about the prosecution..

 

Do try to recall exactly what, if anything, you can about the incident in 2010, whether you received any indication of prosecution etc. because making an untruthful Statutory Declaration can be very much more costly in the long run.
