    • So, not that I am a glutton for punishment, this case is progressing to allocation. Cahoot/Santander have filed their defence. No applications to strike out. Had a letter from the courts today saying it is awaiting allocation.
    • Just an idea, why not have a wind turbine and some solar panels installed and produce your own energy, even get paid to put some back into the national; grid!   I'm happy to pay the water companies for providing clean drinking water direct to my house, otherwise I'd have to go down to the river, collect some water, then cart it back home and then treat it in order for it to be safe to drink.   Same goes for my gas and electric, electrickery is a dark art, I'm not even sure how I'd begin to make that least of all contain it?   And I'm far too lazy to dig into the earths crust to extract my own gas, so I'm happy to fund someone else to have that headache and provide me those resources.
    • the company is parcelbroker.co.uk  some of the problems were caused by brexit over Christmas but there were so many problems it became a comedy of errors! I really just want my phone charges repaid. i contacted EE and they have agreed to repay £30. I think its reasonable for Parcel Broker to pay the other £50. it was never made clear when calling them that it was a premium rate number. They never rang me, I ALWAYS had to ring them..

    • Hi @BankFodder
      Sorry for only updating you now, but after your guidance with submitting the claim it was pretty straight forward and I didn't want to unnecessarily waste your time. Especially with this guide you wrote here, so many thanks for that
      So I issued the claim on day 15 and they requested more time to respond.
      They took until the last day to respond and denied the claim, unsurprisingly saying my contract was with Packlink and not with them.
       
      I opted for mediation, and it played out very similarly to other people's experiences.
       
      In the first call I outlined my case, and I referred to the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 as the reason to why I do in fact have a contract with them. 
       
      In the second call the mediator came back with an offer of the full amount of the phone and postage £146.93, but not the court costs. I said I was not willing to accept this and the mediator came across as a bit irritated that I would not accept this and said I should be flexible. I insisted that the law was on my side and I was willing to take them to court. The mediator went back to Hermes with what I said.
       
      In the third call the mediator said that they would offer the full amount. However, he said that Hermes still thought that I should have taken the case against Packlink instead, and that they would try to recover the court costs themselves from Packlink.
       
      To be fair to them, if Packlink wasn't based in Spain I would've made the claim against them instead. But since they are overseas and the law lets me take action against Hermes directly, it's the best way of trying to recover the money.
       
      So this is a great win. Thank you so much for your help and all of the resources available on this site. It has helped me so much especially as someone who does not know anything about making money claims.
       
      Many thanks, stay safe and have a good Christmas!

Hi there,

 

Looking for advice on how to handle & respond to the following:

 

Received NIP today 10th March 2016, the NIP was dated 9th March 2016 with the alleged offence occurring on 13th December 2015.

 

Offence was 41 in a 30 zone.

 

The wife was driving at the time.

 

The wife has been the registered owner/keeper for about 4 yrs.

 

The vehicle and plate have been registered at the current address for over 12 months.

 

I've seen comments and advice about NIPs needing to be served within 14 days of the offence, which this is clearly outside, but what I wanted to know is what is my/wife's positon here, who should we write to and what should we say

 

Many thanks in advance for any help :-)

 

Mr P

How long the police have to issue a speeding notice

The police must serve an NIP within 14 days of the alleged speeding offence, but there are some circumstances in which the notice will still stand even if it's served later than this, for example:

 

if extra time is needed for the police to act with 'reasonable diligence' to find out who the registered keeper is and how to contact them; or

if the delay was the driver’s fault, for example because they have not told the DVLA of a recent change of address.

s.1 Road Traffic Offenders Act 1988 says that a NIP must be issued within 14 days of the offence. It specifically says that you cannot be convicted unless you are issued with a NIP within 14 days. Since they know this, their conduct amounts to fraud under s.1 Fraud Act 2006 (and misconduct in public office).

Just to update - it turns out my wife didn't change the V5 details when we moved so the original PCN went the old address. Ironically it was about 10 days after our mail redirect expired. The new occupants passed any mail to our old neighbors who passed it on to us after we checked. So considering they had the wrong address originally and subsequently had to send a 2nd notice after checking where we did live, it is considered reasonable diligence.

 

Subsequently my wife has since attended a driving awareness course :-)

 

Thanks all for you input.
