    • Thanks @FTMDave. I suppose I felt my defence would be that it was an honest mistake and even the initial £60 charges seemed unjust, let alone the now two £170's he is now demanding. There is no Justpark code for 'Sea View' and the first/nearest car park that comes up when you're in the Sea View car park is the 'Polzeath beach car park'. If I have to accept that I need to pay £340 to avoid the stress of him maybe taking me to court, then so be it. If people here advise me I don't have a case then I will just have to pay.
    • What you've just written complicates things. No, the snotty letter now needs to be changed so don't rush and send something off just yet. We see you've done your reading up - well done - so you'll have seen we have several cases with our mate Kev.  His MO is to hide signs in the undergrowth where no-one will see them, and ignore consideration & grace periods, so he can issue his invoices.  His antics mean that motorists are legally in the right not to pay his invoices.  And so far he hasn't had the bottle to do court. However, your case is different.  As much as we despise Kev, you didn't pay for the private car park that Kev "manages" but instead gave the money to a completely different car park run by the council.  In that case Kev does have the right to be miffed.  I've just a mock booking for Sea View car park on JustPark and it works no problem. I think you have two decisions to make. 1.  Do you want to do a chargeback with your bank to get back the £60 you paid?  I did a chargeback about a year ago for the first time, i didn't have a clue what to do, but the regulars here guided me and everything was painless. 2.  Although you are probably legally in the wrong and may have outed yourself as the driver do you want to refuse to pay Kev for the other two?  If Kev won't do court then after all his bluster you'll be in the clear. However, as there are two tickets involved (potentially three if you go for chargeback) Kev's geed might win over his lack of backbone and he may go for court. There's no easy solution.  Your choice.  We will of course support you all the way with what you decide.
    • Ok thanx  I keeping coming across this term “ holding defence”. Can someone explain what this is. Thanx. 
    • Thank you @lookinforinfo and @FTMDave.  The car park I paid for by mistake instead of this one was Cornwall council, not Alliance. Will the letter still be ok in this instance? Thank you so much again for your help. When you open the Just Park app in the  Alliance car park (Sea View) the first car park that comes up is Polzeath Beach. Both car parks are on the beach. The signs do not give a code for 'Sea View' anywhere. I also have not been able to find the landowner to complain. (not on land registry.) Please confirm whether above letter is ok to send, thanks again.
    • OK thanks, I noted them down when I checked the report - 3 have already expired, although if I'm adding the 14 days on then it'll be another week or so for those. The others are; end of July (so into August is that right?), end of August (these two are the big ones) and a couple of grand on Shop Direct at the end of November but seeing as this furthest one is Lowell and they have already missed those first 3 then I feel pretty safe with that one. Are these DN dates on the credit report that dates I should be looking at +14 days when their anniversaries come up this year as the time when I can be sure the debts are SB?  I won't be rushing to send the SB letters anyway until the final one has passed and I can just do them in one fell swoop.

    • 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 all,

I had a phone call from Capita yesterday and the woman on the other end of the phone was quite aggressive and hostile. ~She spoke really fast too.

 

 

I have severe mental health issues and numerous physical issues including needing to be near a loo. She tried to demand I go for a f2f in a place I don't know at all. I told her this and she said "but you get out daily, don't you?" I said of course I can't not with this health. She very reluctantly allowed me an appointment at home but no choice of date.

 

 

I am now at my wits end as I never allow even the few friends I have to come into my house due to my physical and mental health. My house is a bit of a tip as I suffer extreme fatigue due to Crohn's Disease and arthritis. My mental health is also such that I can't physically do what I want to do when I want to do things.

 

 

I don't have anyone I can ask to be with me at the allotted time and am terrified of having to let a stranger into my home. I haven't lived in the area long and don't feel I can rely on any of my medical team.

 

 

Any suggestions please?

TIA

Hi,

No I haven't had one since I moved here. I really don't know if I can go through this alone, but have no idea what to do.

 

Hi,

 

Contact your local Council tomorrow and ask to speak to on of the Income Revenue Officers, they help fill out PIP forms and also can assist with other Departments if needed.

 

or if you live in a Housing Association property, give them a ring and ask for the team that deal with financial assistance (they are mainly attached to the finance department).

 

They will call them on your behalf, fill out forms and help as best as they can.

 

Best Wishes

Hello,

 

 

I had a disastrous assessment with a very nasty nurse.

 

I was on higher rates for both components.

I can't believe how much detail I went into on the form and evidence supplied.

 

I know from the report that the assessor has contradicted herself throughout, but I can't believe I scored not 1 point.

 

I have Crohns disease,

arthritis,

scoliosis,

iritis,

chronic fatigue due to malabsorbtion and

severe mental health issues.

 

I also have a liquid feed going through a tube in my abdomen into my stomach.

 

the nurse and I did discuss my mobility scooter and the fact that I cannot propel my wheelchair and that I genuinely cannot go to an unknown place.

So i'm truly shocked by what she wrote.

She seemed more interested in the fact that I draw and drive an automatic car.

 

I simply cannot understand her.

She also used a raised voice the whole time.

I just didn't have anyone with me and suffered it alone,

 

although she stated she would leave and come back at another date to finish off as she 'could see she was stressing me out'.

I told her to stay as I would never let her back in my place.

I almost dialled 999 to have her arrested and removed.

 

I have put in for my mandatory reconsideration and was wondering how long this will take.

 

In the mean time am I allowed to use my bus pass and must I tax my car immediately?

 

Also, with bedroom tax and an overpayment i'm really feeling the pinch,

can I get help with the bedroom tax and can the overpayment be brought into line with what I can afford.

 

I'm suffering so much mental and physical anguish over this I really don't know how i'm going to cope.

 

TIA

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...

Ok, just to update.

I now have enhanced care and standard Mobility.

 

They are for an 'ongoing period'.

 

i'm quite pleased

but what I would like to know is if I scored 4 points moving around and 4 points to have someone with me do I have 50% tax reduction on my vehicle or not. Thanks in advance.
