    • The problem is that each time you have given them notice, you have then continued which effectively nullifies the notice. I agree that you have given them enough notice – but each time the notice is effectively cancelled because you continue not standing by your word. I hope you can start to see that when you state a position and then you move the position, you simply lose credibility and effectively you have to begin again. You need to put everything beyond doubt and so you should send the letter which I've suggested.  If you have some partner or someone who was also getting involved then I think that you had better make sure that you are communicating well with each other and that it is agreed that somebody is taking the lead. Otherwise, the left hand will not know what the right hand is doing and it will only be when you find yourself in court and defending a claim for an administrative fee or a council contract that it then comes back to bite you in the bum – both of your bums.. You must give notice in order to protect your position. Very sorry, but the letter which was sent was reckless. Send a letter which I have suggested giving seven days notice and a 14 day backstop for completing the work. Of course there was always one danger and that is that you could give notice, they then start the work within the notice period – and then it starts to dawdle along and take too long. However, giving them 14 day backstop to actually have the work completed should protect your position. Send the letter now. Also calculate if you are within 120 days of the date that you made the payment on your debit card – and if you did then begin a chargeback with your bank. If it's longer than 120 days then you will be able to do the chargeback and then maybe the best thing to do is to write it off – unless they decide to see you and in that case you can make a counterclaim.     This is all very well, but once again you state a position and then you don't follow it through. How can anyone take you seriously?
    • Lookinforinfo, these are two separate letters for two separate tickets, one 07.02.19 and one 03.08.19.   karel, I've added the post code to the thread title to identify the car park better.  It would be helpful if you could edit the sticky, you don't know when the NTKs arrived as you never received them.   The good news is that these debt collectors have no power so you can sit back, relax and ignore their drivel.   In the long term though you might want to consider sending a SAR to Horizon to find out what they originally sent and maybe work out why you never received it.
    • Just in addition, in the beginning we made it very clear we didn't want the work carried out during Autumn and winter, we have a young child at home and are not prepared to put his health at risk.. Also as we had said, to go beyond the specified dates is not feasible as one of the builders has already returned home and the other one has already stayed longer than planned so to start it now wouldn't be an option.
    • it's not a violation, it's a speculative invoice for breaking some imaginary contract the driver made with ECP by driving onto the land.   Enterprise are breaking contract law by charging you £35 as they did not enter into the contract the £35 is a penalty admin and as such is unlawful .   pers i'd go do a chargeback to your bank. they have no legal right to charge anything. all they are required to do is inform the PPC of the ID of tthe driver...you that does not cost £35!! more like 50p

    • I came across this discussion recently and just wanted to give my experience of A Shade Greener that may help others regarding their boiler finance agreement.
       
      We had a 10yr  finance contract for a boiler fitted July 2015.
       
      After a summer of discontent with ASG I discovered that if you have paid HALF the agreement or more you can legally return the boiler to them at no cost to yourself. I've just returned mine the feeling is liberating.
       
      It all started mid summer during lockdown when they refused to service our boiler because we didn't have a loft ladder or flooring installed despite the fact AS installed the boiler. and had previosuly serviced it without issue for 4yrs. After consulting with an independent installer I was informed that if this was the case then ASG had breached building regulations,  this was duly reported to Gas Safe to investigate and even then ASG refused to accept blame and repeatedly said it was my problem. Anyway Gas Safe found them in breach of building regs and a compromise was reached.
       
      A month later and ASG attended to service our boiler but in the process left the boiler unusuable as it kept losing pressure not to mention they had damaged the filling loop in the process which they said was my responsibilty not theres and would charge me to repair, so generous of them! Soon after reporting the fault I got a letter stating it was time we arranged a powerflush on our heating system which they make you do after 5 years even though there's nothing in the contract that states this. Coincidence?
       
      After a few heated exchanges with ASG (pardon the pun) I decided to pull the plug and cancel our agreement.
       
      The boiler was removed and replaced by a reputable installer,  and the old boiler was returned to ASG thus ending our contract with them. What's mad is I saved in excess of £1000 in the long run and got a new boiler with a brand new 12yr warranty. 
       
      You only have to look at TrustPilot to get an idea of what this company is like.

    • Dazza a few months ago I discovered a good friend of mine who had ten debts with cards and catalogues which he was slavishly paying off at detriment to his own family quality of life, and I mean hardship, not just absence of second holidays or flat screen TV's.
       
      I wrote to all his creditors asking for supporting documents and not one could provide any material that would allow them to enforce the debt.
       
      As a result he stopped paying and they have been unable to do anything, one even admitted it was unenforceable.
       
      If circumstances have got to the point where you are finding it unmanageable you must ask yourself why you feel the need to pay.  I guarantee you that these companies have built bad debt into their business model and no one over there is losing any sleep over your debt to them!  They will see you as a victim and cash cow and they will be reluctant to discuss final offers, only ways to keep you paying with threats of court action or seizing your assets if you have any.
       
      They are not your friends and you owe them no loyalty or moral duty, that must remain only for yourself and your family.
       
      If it was me I would send them all a CCA request.   I would bet that not one will provide the correct response and you can quite legally stop paying them until such time as they do provide a response.   Even when they do you should check back here as they mostly send dodgy photo copies or generic rubbish that has no connection with your supposed debt.
       
      The money you are paying them should, as far as you are able, be put to a savings account for yourself and as a means of paying of one of these fleecers should they ever manage to get to to the point of a successful court judgement.  After six years they will not be able to start court action and that money will then become yours.
       
      They will of course pursue you for the funds and pass your file around various departments of their business and out to third parties.
       
      Your response is that you should treat it as a hobby.  I have numerous files of correspondence each faithfully organised showing the various letters from different DCA;s , solicitors etc with a mix of threats, inducements and offers.   It is like my stamp collection and I show it to anyone who is interested!

Thanks all for your input, help might be at hand I have spoken to my insurers with whom I have legal insurance cover with.

 

Told them that the neighbour had visited the offices of one of the courier companies and signed a declaration stating that he had parking rights on my property, the courier company advised me of this, and they are sending me a claim form.

 

So hopefully this might see the end of the problem.

 

Although after seven years of this sort of behaviour he will most probably try something else.

If his declaration with these courier Co.’s contravenes thecovenvenants affecting the land upon which his property is situate, then suchdeclaration is not valid. Request a copy of this declaration made by yourneighbour from these third party couriers Co’s by way of voluntary disclosureand state that if they are not willing to comply then you will make anapplication to the Court under CPR Pt. 31.17 for the same and seek your costs againstthem if such action should become necessary, which you sincerely hope will not.

Further, if he is indeed operating a professional business/providinga professional service as providedunder the prescribed the language of thecovenants from his residential premises,(if any such provision is made thereunder), then you cannot challengethe same.

If no such provisions are imposed under the covenants, thenyou have the law fully on your side, not only under the enforceable covenants,to which your neighbour’s (and indeed all residents upon this land) conscience is bound, but also under the enforcement powers of yourlocal authority, which would require an application for such business use ofany such residential property and of course their written approval of such.

Keep us informed and use the law to protect your householdfrom this nuisance, slowly does it, but you will prevail and succeed. Please do not breach the harassment noticeserved upon you by the inept police.

Kind regards

Strange that since neighbours claim to the police there has not been one courier van on my property, which is nearly two weeks.

Strongly suspect that somebody might have told him the trouble he could be in with his false claims.

Thats promising, most of the time the police don't take sides and they may have also had stern words with him.

 

If thats the case and things improve, then although its hard, I would be inclined to slowly make the peace, just start with greeting him good morning etc.

 

I appreciate he's in the wrong, but you can be the bigger man and at least try, even accepting a parcel if he's out. In the end he will probably start thinking you aren't as bad as He thought and you will get on.

 

I hope it all turns out, life is bad enough with out all the troubles we cause ourselves .

 

You can still smile and know inside that he's a tos~~er just don't remind him.

Smokejumper I don't think it is case of the police taking sides, its more like covering their own backs.

 

Sadly things have been so bad over the last seven years there is no way I could entertain any contact at all with this man.

 

The tone of my posts have given the wrong impression I am a female, a fact I think this man relied on when he started all this trouble, not expecting me to come back at him.

 

regards

The tone of your posts have most certainly not given out any adverse impression as regards your character/persona my dear fellow. It is my considered opinion that your posts here have shown that you have been wronged by another over a long period of time and that you are no longer willing to suffer such and that the wrongdoer (your neighbour - for want of a better word, I know, a person who happens to live in the same street as you) has contacted the police in the light of your rightful and lawful protest against him and that he has held the police under the impression that it is the case that he is the victim in this matter!

 

Hold out, for all the help you need is right here on CAG.

 

Kind regards

I'm sorry you think it's to late to try and live with this man peacefully.

 

I've lived in a place where the neighbours annoyed me and it does take over your life, but then I am a recluse and avoid as much social contact as I can ( I get upset and sort things out my way and get into trouble).

 

Also sorry to think you were a man, obviously my sexist side showed me up, I am impressed with your strength and spirit.

Big courier can parked on and blocking my drive, delivering to neighbour.

 

Sent e mail to courier company saying I would bring an action for trespass if they came onto my property again.

 

E mailed the police told them what I had done and said I assumed they would now get proof from my neighbour of his rights before they came to arrest me.

 

Let you know what happens

Just had a nice visit from neighbours father threatening me with violence because two years ago, after he and his wife were shouting abuse in front of my cctv, I called him a poisoned dwarf.

Called the police who say they can do nothing because 1 he will deny it and 2 he never touched me.

Waiting to hear from my solicitors.

Still contacting anybody parking on my property threatening them with an action for trespass if they park on my property again.

Copies of any contacts I have made have been sent to the police.

I would be surprised if they cant do anything based on their knowledge of this long standing dispute.

 

If you've made a complaint because you felt in fear for your safety, I would have thought they are obliged to investigate. it would be worth a follow up call requesting an explanation of what action they have taken.

 

You should not have to endure threats of violence or intimidation from your neighbours friends , family or associates, especially if you were on your own property going about your own business at the time.

 

The Protection from Harassment Act is intended to provide protection to harassed individuals such as yourself in such instances.

 

Keep your spirits up.

Surely your CCTV should show they approached you and they would need to explain why. I think another call to the police is in order.

 

Why is he bringing this up again after 2 yrs and although he didn't touch you, I'm sure you were intimidated.

This is harassment!! - the police are failing you! Given the information posted here thus far, there should be a record on police files regarding the same!

 

You need to invoke the covenants by way of injunction through County Court relying upon the same and your neighbour's continued breach of the same, further, you need to make the Court aware of your calls to the police against this neighbour's actions and further report to the Court that you consider his actions to be a wrong committed against you under the tort Intentional Infliction of Emotional Distress. The fact that your neighbour's actions have taken place over a protracted period of time in contravention of the covenants, the Haraasment Act 1997 and the English tort of Intentional Infliction of Emotional Distress now require an injunction to be Ordered against him to refrain from obstructing your private rights of access over your land at any time which he is continuing to disregard.

 

You must take legal civil action now!

 

Kind regards

Good stuff,

 

You have the legally binding covenants, the Harassment Act 1997 and the English Tort Intentional Infliction of Emotional Distress all on your side. Stand firm on the same!

Something to lighten your mood, a little bit of humour for you as this reminded me of a joke.( not saying your situation is in anyway a joke).

 

A man hears a noise in his garden and looks outside to see two burglars breaking into his shed.

 

The man rings the police and tells them if they come round now, they will catch the burglars in the act, the police say they are too busy at the moment , short staffed and will send someone round when they can.

 

The burglars remain and are emptying his shed into a van, this is going on for a few hours and the man has rang the police three times and gets the same story.

 

The man then rings the police again and tells them that they don't need to hurry any more as the man has shot the burglars.

 

Within 2 mins 6 police cars, a van full of police officers and a helicopter arrive.

 

The burglars are still emptying the shed and a senior police officer say's to the man " I thought you said you had shot them" and in return the man say's " I thought you said you were short staffed and couldn't send any one round"

 

Boom, Boom ;-)
