N/A Hi, As keeper, I have received a PNC from MET Parking over the vehicle being parked in the infamous Stansted Starbucks/Mcdonald’s car park(s). The vehicle was parked outside Starbucks (at night, when it was closed) and the driver went into Mcdonalds. However, the driver wishes to appeal due to the poor and misleading unlit signage, and believes that this PNC is unfair. I am sure you are aware of this company/car park, and I would appreciate any advice on this matter. Kind regards PNC 14.04.2024.pdf
    • The PCN is one of the more compliant that I have seen. however it still fails. There is no period of parking mentioned as required by paragraph 9[2][a] . ANPR cameras only capture the arrival an departure times. It does not record the times you drove from the entrance to the parking place and then from the parking spot to the exit. That means that if you are the keeper then you are not liable to pay the PCN. Only the driver is so do not appeal as you may reveal who was actually driving.if you were not the keeper then as long as the driver is not identified CE will have difficulty on that fact alone. The majority of people with valid motor insurance are allowed to drive your car  and Courts do not accept tha that the driver and the keeper are the same person. On top of that your car was trespassing there since you didn't have a Permit and only the land owner can pursue you not the monkey they employ. The signage is prohibitory in that only permit holders can park there so no contract can be formed. The signage is new apparently so there must be some time allowance for motorists to adjust to the new signs which could mean that  they shouldn't even be issuing you with a PCN. For all those reasons I wouldn't be too much in a hurry to pay them a penny. And well done on posting up the PCN and that sign so quickly. 
    • Dear CAG Team   Given the above, and not knowing what the actual account name is, I will haver to stick with that same name but the Bailiff said that once the variation is done there wont be an issue getting the money off him. What i cannot get my head around is when i set up a new payee, if the name doesn't match the account name my bank wont allow the transfer. So how is it that it authorised and allowed the transfer? Also, given the dealer broike trading standard rules and tried to sell me a death trap, then keep my deposit, why is his bank and mine protecting him by not disclosing his account name or at least making a charge back as i first attempted?   Many thanks

    • 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

 

I wonder if anyone can help. I have got a list of my bank charges from HSBC and in total this amounts to just over £2000 over an 8 year period mostly for unauthorised overdraft fees and a few unpaid direct debits. Some of the charges for the overdraft fees amount to £150 a time. I was not aware at the time that I could reclaim these and I am currently in a DMP and have been out of work and working on a contract basis on a lot less money than I was on - I wrote to HSBC and asked for the fees to be repaid, they said they would not repay these and sent me information about managing debt. They referred me to the recent court case in 2007 about the legality of the charges and the subsequent outcome in the banks favour. They state that their charges are fair and within their Fair Fees Policy. They state "we do not charge if the increase in borrowing is £10.00 or less. We never charge customers more than the level of the highest excess overdraft during the relevant charging period, rounded down to the nearest £1.00. Only one fee will be applied per day up to a maximum of £150.00 in any one monthly charging period".

 

However, if they are putting charges of up to £150 each month, how is anyone supposed to get out of the mess they are in, these fees, in my case snowballed and added to my financial difficulties.

 

I sent a complaint form to the FSO and have stated I am willing to file a claim in the court to retrieve this. I stated my financial hardship and that the fees were the catalyst of the problem as they kept racking up each month, making the situation worse. I have heard back from the FOS this weekend to say they are siding with HSBC as the fees were "fair". Should I go down the court route and what is the success route - and also, how much will it cost going via the court? I usually wouldn't bother but the total amounts to over £2,000 I feel that this is excessive.

 

Any help, advice, direction on this subject would be greatly appreciated

 

Thanks in advance.

Ok stop.

 

1. Overdraft charges can be reclaimed but not on the old method.

 

2. Read up on BCOBs

 

3. You need to claim unfair treatment whilst in financial difficulty. The charges themselves cannot be claimed on the basis that they are unfair. The court ruled in their favour. Instead u need to prove unfair treatment

Thanks, assuming this works for unpaid DD fees also?

 

Can the unfair treatment whilst in financial difficulty be after the event occurred, as some of these charges are 10 years ago?

 

At the time, I was struggling as I was the only one working to support my family but was not aware that the charges could be reclaimed and just accepted that this was what the bank charged.

 

How do I go via the court for unfair treatment. I have looked up on BCOBS and would excessive snowballing fees be seen as unfair treatment?

Unless someone corrects me i believe 2009 in when BCOB came into force.

 

Not sure on the returned DD fees.

 

I believe that after 2009 you can claim for charges where the bank knew or should of known you were in financial hardship

Ive not myself looked into overdraft and bank charges yet. (im focused on credit card reclaims atm :p )
