    • Hello all,    I have received a letter from Advantis in regards to an overpayment of carers allowance I received when I got a job whilst I was caring for my mother. I did not know I had to inform them etc.    Long story short, I had a compliance phonecall with carers and nothing more was said.    I stopped caring for my mum shortly after and cancelled my carers allowance too.    I was employed for 4 months at the beginning of 2018.    Apparently the DWP and carers have sent letters but I haven't responded so they've gone through Advantis to recover the amount owed. I moved house shortly after cancelling everything and had no contact from them at all.    They sent letters to my previous address so they told me that's why it's been passed onto Advantis.    Today DWP told me that the only thing they can do is take payment in full, or deal with Advantis to come up with a payment plan.    I spoke to Advantis who asked me to pay in full or in two installments, I refused and they then said they've put my account on hold for 30 days whilst I go away and work out my monthly income etc so they can go through an affordability assessment to work out how much I can pay back and how often.      What shall I do? DWP tell me there's nothing they can do as it's been passed onto Advantis.    Advantis tell me they are working on behalf of the DWP... Nobody will tell me who owns the debt.     What shall I do?    Thank you all in advance for your amazing help.     
    • Hi, I have just received a pcn from Euro Car Parks saying that my car was in one of their car parks for 13 mins without making a payment. The reason being is that my husband was waiting for me, but where he thought I would only be 5 mins I was longer because of health issues and I had to take a rest. As if this wasn't enough, unbelievably I have just received ANOTHER notice saying I had not paid for a ticket on the 9th of September. I would like to mention the car park charges are so cheap, at £1:20 all day, it would be insane not to pay. We have used this car park only around 4 times and have always paid, excepting th time the car was waiting for 13mins. What a shock I have got receiving these notices. I wonder if I accidentally keyed in my registration incorrectly? Please can someone advise.
    • I also have a similar problem with Advantis for DWP overpayment of carers allowance. I've only just moved into my own house and they've sent a letter asking for my whereabouts and a business matter that needs my urgent attention. I have found out from the DWP and carers that I owe £1,131 and Advantis want me to go through an affordability assessment.    I am not sure who owns the debt, DWP or Advantis and where I stand with this 
    • I've just had this emailed from CarMoney. I'm so confused, I really don't know what I'm supposed to be doing and with whom. "Apologies for the delay in response. I have spoken to Oodle regarding the complaint and unfortunatly, they would require an independent report to be carried out on the vehicle. The burden of proof would lie with yourself.   I can certainly help by giving you the details of Scotia, who is the company that we use."   Everything I've read says that I did the right thing by exercising my rights under the CRA 2015 with the dealer. That was done within the six-months, so the burden of proof should be on the dealer still? Or am I completely wrong??
    • Heard nothing for 6 & half years until last week. A big fat letter from Barclays upholding my PPI claim which had gone to the Ombudsman (news to me) and enclosing all the waffle and finally at the end a cheque for £3659.20 and advising that £454.85 was taxed - this I can reclaim as I don't pay tax currently.

Hello all,

 

I desperately need some expert help.

 

 

Two days ago I was given a parking ticket code 25 for parking in a loading bay in East Street Bromley.

 

 

The loading bay in question had NO markings on the ground only a sign

(which I didn't see as the parking bay is at the end of a row of parking bays and sneakily made to look just like a parking bay) to say Loading bay.

 

 

The sign they used is a variation of 660.4, which I have checked and is correct.

 

 

However this is where I need help;

 

 

The TSRGD guidance on using sign 660.4 states that it can only be used with the road markings conforming to 1028.3, 1032

(both of which whereby it should say LOADING BAY/ONLY written on ground)

and 1033 (where it doesn't need any wording on the ground due to narrow bays).

 

I cannot attach any pictures yet but feel free to email me [edited]

and I will happily send the images to you of the bay I parked in.

 

The painted marking do not appear to be any of the above,

in fact they look to be 1028.4, which if that's the case then is the sign 660.4 allowed,

or should there be written on the ground LOADING BAY?

 

Have I got grounds for appeal due to Bromley incorrectly using the sign 660.4 with road markings 1028.4? or have I made a mistake?

 

This really is very confusing

 

Thank you

The Council may have authorisation to use non standard signs from the dept of Transport.

PS That's my red Mini. Interestingly the parking bay I am in doesn't have a line at the end, it narrows off to a point. I am unsure if this has any relevance?

Thanks, and I guess the only way I can find out is to appeal and await a reply?

Bromley has one for Orpington town centre, which allows them to omit the 'loading only' legend:

Orpington Restricted Zone - reauthorisation, LB Bromley[/url]

 

 

Thanks, is there any way of me finding out if Bromley Council have any exemptions in place for East street, is this information available online?

Given that you accept you were parked in a loading bay, the only real issue is whether Bromley have special authorisation for East St, similar to the one for Orpington, to omit the loading legend..

 

The DfT only lists authorisations from 2011. There may be one for East St pre-dating that. and the only way to find out for sure is to ask the council.

 

 

Failing that I'd pay the discounted penalty.
