    • Get rid of the car? I'm not entirely sure what you mean.    The long and short of it is, he has exponentially screwed up, not only illegally, but by lying on more than one occasion, he doesn't have a defence as if a judge looked at the evidence I'd 99. 99% win. I did everything I was supposed to, he has thus far avoided any responsibility for his actions. If it means going to court in brum of he wants to put in a defence, then so be it.    If I do as you say, and I'm presuming here that you mean send the car back to him,  if he accepts it back he then has the car, my money for the car and I wouldn't just be filing for delivery then, would I?  I'd be filing for the cost of the car plus delivery.  Or do you mean sell the car to someone else?    I think I'll take advice elsewhere as so far the advice I have had elsewhere agrees with the outcome I want, for him to collect the vehicle and refund me the money, as he is by law required to do.

    • I agree. I think you should take the refund. I think you should view this in terms of two problems. Firstly the faulty tent for which they are offering you a refund secondly, the way you were treated.   I would say that the best thing to do is to accept the refund that you are offered and then it leaves you with a much smaller problem to deal with – if you want to continue. It sounds as if you have been very badly treated. If you have got video evidence of everything which supports everything you say then you could have a basis for complaint and we could help you. However, they are offering the money and you may as well get started with that. If you don't then they may withdraw the offer of the money and then you will still have two problems to deal with which will be more complicated and more time-consuming.

    • I’m in desperate need of help
       
      I bought some clothes online in may through Evans and paid through PayPal
      returned them all seven days later
       
      I waited the 14days for my refund and no refund came
      I put in a dispute through PayPal but I didn’t get any emails to escalate the case - PayPal closed it. 
      evans said they couldn’t refund the money because PayPal have cancelled the refund because of the open dispute
       
      I contacted PayPal
      they said the dispute had been closed but Evans at no point had attempted a refund.
      fast forward to today
       
      I’ve got copies of numerous messages sent to and from twitter messages as it’s the only way I can contact them
      I’ve also contacted their customer service too
      all I get is PayPal have cancelled refund because dispute is still open.
       
      I have proved that the dispute is closed
      I have got an email saying that if Evans sent the refund they would accept it
      but up until the date I got the email they have not once attempted a refund .
       
       I have sent them a letter before court email
      I have even offered to have the full refund as a gift card just to get this sorted !
       
      I’m literally at the end of my tether and don’t know where to turn next !
       
      i suffer with mental health issues and this is affecting my health and I’d saved the money for a year to buy these clothes as I’m on a low income .

Hi Guys,

 

New reader, new poster!

 

I live next to a canal in Staffordshire in a row of about 10 houses, on an unadopted road. The houses are at the end of this road, with a parking plot containing spaces for 2 cars each per house, just before you get to the houses. Now, the whole area is quite hidden away and the only traffic we get are the home owners themselves or visitors.

 

However, as we are hidden away and off the main road, we have had in the past had cars abandoned to get round SORN, and we have one now. This is a separate issue to what I am posting and is being addressed elsewhere. However, the residents have had enough and we are looking at options available to us on preventative measures for non resident parking. The reason for this is that there is no extra room for other cars due to the location - if a space is taken, there is no room for the resident to park; period.

 

The results online so far tend to be in the drivers' favour and how to claim back / fight against a parking ticket whereas this is a bit different. Signs displaying residents only etc are being discussed and I am wondering what we can realistically enforce.

 

Any advice or past experiences please - Cheers!

Lockable fold down posts in front of every space would provide a solution.

You say it is an un adopted road, and the parking spaces are before the houses. Could you not put a manual locked gate or electric operated barrier at that point.

I agree with armadillo71. Don't use a PPC, trust the advice on this brilliant site.

I should have added to my previous post, using a PPC it will be the residents who suffer not the offenders. Have a look around this site how many residents get caught out by these companies, who then refuse to back down when a resident challenges an invoice.

Thanks for the replies - essentially what you are saying is the only way to deter , is to secure the spaces. This is part of the discussions now and looks to be the only way forward; whether that be a Gate or per parking space. It's a rural area so an electrical option is a non starter.

Comment #6. I agree completely. You will have nothing but problems PPC. Posts or road barrier.Initial cost split between you and other house holders........ Future costs £0000 and zero hassle

Thanks, I was enquiring about enforcing it ourselves and not employing a private company to do this as I think we are getting slightly off topic. I would also say I'm still on the other side of the points you raise, as informative as they are - I have a plot of land, owned by me and in my House deeds that is is currently hosting an uninvited car from somebody I do not know or have invited to park there. This is a not a mixed car park where somebody has just "taken" a space, they have consciously driven to this location to dump the car in a quiet rural area, well away from the main road, where it would be legitimately towed.

 

I'm a bit miffed tbh as it looks like unless I pay for it to be removed by the council, there's very little else I can do to stop this happening in future, unless there is a physical barrier in place which lets face it, is a complete faff for everyone involved.

It's less of a faff than dealing with a car every time it parks on your land. Individual bollards are easy to install.

Ok, are the cars "dumped" or parked and removed ( driven off later ) ? If they are abandoned phone the Police, then apply to DVLA for ownership and sell it for scrap. That way you don't pay the council and you get £100 / £150 for your trouble. You can move it out of your space and leave it parked at the side of your road while waiting for DVLA.

Who owns the land? if it is jointly owned by the properties there then the bollard at the end of the lane is the cheapest solution as already stated. As for informing the police about an abandoned car, they wont be interested oin one dumped on private land as it is the landowners problem. You can haeve it towed at your own expense but what I would do first is go to the DVLA web site and enter the reg No and see if the vehicle is taxed. If it is contact the DVLA and get the RK details and write to them giving them 7 days notice of removal and say they they will be billed for the towing and disposal costs. If it is not taxed get a scrappy to come and remove it the day before you put your bollard in place. The scrap merchant will get more forthe cars then the towing fee.
