    • Welcome to the Forum. The PCN must be subject to Bye laws as the warning near the bottom of the PCN does not comply with the protection of Freedoms Act 2012 Schedule 4 Under Section 9 [2][f[] of the Act it should say: (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; Their version states they are pursuing you as the driver [because of the Bye laws they cannot transfer the liability from the driver to the keeper] even though you are the keeper. Should it go to Court Judges do not accept that the driver and the keeper are the same person. Obviously on many occasions another member of the family may be driving instead of the keeper. Indeed anyone with a valid motor insurance policy is able to drive your car. if any of the three cars were not driven by the keeper they are not liable to pay the PCN only the driver is.  as long as they do not divulge who was driving those lovely people at Alliance haven't a hope of winning against them in Court. What a shame. However while those keepers who were not driving are in the clear all is not lost for the other keeper drivers. Alliance still have to prove who was driving which is difficult providing those keepers do not appeal.  It is quite often that on appeal the keeper may say "I entered the car park at....."  immediately giving away that they were the driver. Plus even if you appeal it won't be accepted as a] they lose £100 straight away and b] mostly all the major car parking companies are dishonest scrotes. In the meantime you will be on the receiving end of threatening letters from Alliance, unregulated debt collectors and fifth, sixth or even lower rated solicitors all trying to frighten the life out of you to cough up. They can all be safely ignored since if you don't contact any of them they don't know who was driving so have no information that the can use in Court to identify the driver. Some time in the future they may send you a Letter of Claim which must not be ignored. Just let us know and we will advise a suitable snotty letter to send them which will show that you are not afraid of them and are happy to turn up in court knowing that you will win. Sorry it was a bit long winded.

    • 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 There Guys, On The Friday 8th March 2013, I Received a letter of the JSA/DWP Saying that they made a decision not to pay me until May 2013, For A Job that I Didn't apply for.


Anyway, Jobcentre never gave me a Job to apply for, neither there wasn't a Job saved on my Government GateAway Account. So on Monday 11th March 2013, I Went to my local Jobcentre Plus and spoke to some lady who looked it up, It came back As I didn't apply for a Job At Asda.... Now I can Remember, My Person Adviser asked me If I wanted to do a Online test first at a collage and i said Yes I will... So I Phoned Up the collage and booked an appointment, but they never phoned me back... Also I had to do a Hardship Payment application.. ( STILL HAVEN'T HEARD BACK OF THEM).


Wednesday 13th March, I Signed On As Normal,

Today I Had a Adviser Meeting.. She said my account has been Sanctioned!!...


Anyway... Before this letter, I had no warning that my account will get Sanctioned, No-one told me nothing about it. Basically I did apply for the Job at asda because I told my Adviser that I will go Collage(Part of the Job)..


No Warning That My account will get Sanctioned

Can They send out a letter and tell you they going stop your JSA, without a WARNING?


Do you know any advise I can get from you Guys?

What to do?


Have you got a Letter template i could use for a MP Etc?..


Thank you.

You need to request a reconsideration of the decision and you may be able to apply for hardship pending that decision.

I the reconsideration you need to state exactly what happened and if unsuccessful you wish the reconsideration to escalate to an appeal.

No JCP are not having to refer people for sanctions to meet targets.

The Governmet would probably like to put targets or benchmarks as they like to call them now but they can't as there has to be a reason for referring to DMA (the decision making appeal team that look at guidance and regualtions to determine if a sanction can and should be applied).


With the hardship decision it will depend if your local JCP office hold hardship interviews or not (some smaller offices don't interview clients who have been sanctioned) and if you have provided all the information needed.

A decision is usually made within 2 working days.

The vacancy identified doesn't have to be on your governnent gateway either as vacancies can be found on other sites and you can be advised tof the positions and expected to apply for them if identified by your advisor.

Are you single, part of a couple, children living with you if yes how many do you have?
