    • Welcome to the Forum. The PCN must be subject to Bye laws as the warning near the bottom of the PCN does not comply with the protection of Freedoms Act 2012 Schedule 4 Under Section 9 [2][f[] of the Act it should say: (f)warn the keeper that if, after the period of 28 days beginning with the day after that on which the notice is given— (i)the amount of the unpaid parking charges specified under paragraph (d) has not been paid in full, and (ii)the creditor does not know both the name of the driver and a current address for service for the driver ,the creditor will (if all the applicable conditions under this Schedule are met) have the right to recover from the keeper so much of that amount as remains unpaid; Their version states they are pursuing you as the driver [because of the Bye laws they cannot transfer the liability from the driver to the keeper] even though you are the keeper. Should it go to Court Judges do not accept that the driver and the keeper are the same person. Obviously on many occasions another member of the family may be driving instead of the keeper. Indeed anyone with a valid motor insurance policy is able to drive your car. if any of the three cars were not driven by the keeper they are not liable to pay the PCN only the driver is.  as long as they do not divulge who was driving those lovely people at Alliance haven't a hope of winning against them in Court. What a shame. However while those keepers who were not driving are in the clear all is not lost for the other keeper drivers. Alliance still have to prove who was driving which is difficult providing those keepers do not appeal.  It is quite often that on appeal the keeper may say "I entered the car park at....."  immediately giving away that they were the driver. Plus even if you appeal it won't be accepted as a] they lose £100 straight away and b] mostly all the major car parking companies are dishonest scrotes. In the meantime you will be on the receiving end of threatening letters from Alliance, unregulated debt collectors and fifth, sixth or even lower rated solicitors all trying to frighten the life out of you to cough up. They can all be safely ignored since if you don't contact any of them they don't know who was driving so have no information that the can use in Court to identify the driver. Some time in the future they may send you a Letter of Claim which must not be ignored. Just let us know and we will advise a suitable snotty letter to send them which will show that you are not afraid of them and are happy to turn up in court knowing that you will win. Sorry it was a bit long winded.

    • 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.

I have just completed the pre end of tenancy check list with my LA who said it was law that I had to get the house fumigated as I have a cat....no one I have talked to, including Rentokill, have said this is the law....anyone else heard of it?

Never heard of it and it sounds most unlikely.


The only obligation is to return the house to the state that it was when you moved in – minus normal wear and tear.


It sounds like a try-on to me

To return in the state I moved in would mean me putting fist sized holes in the bedroom walls(hiding them behind posters!), putting worn wallpaper up and returning the mold/fungus growing carpet to the bathroom!

TBH, I've never heard of any such law?


Is this a private let?


Was it stated in your tenancy agreement?

Who ever heard of someone getting a job at the Jobcentre? The unemployed are sent there as penance for their sins, not to help them find work!

Never heard of such a law.


Did you have permission for pets and is fumigating mentioned at all in your Tenancy Agreement.


What I would do is ask the LA for a copy of the link to the Governments Website on this New Law as you require clarification on this.

Sounds like LL condition for his acceptance of pets. Did you even ask LL for permission to keep a pet, ferret or cat?

No one has suggested you are required to return property to the exact move in state, only that property should be in no worse condition (less FW&T) than at start, as evidenced by Inventories.

If no fleas at start but noted at end, where do you think they came from?

As for specific fumigation Legislation . I doubt it, but LLs are required to undertake Legionella checks as H&S precaution and fleas are also a H&S matter.

If it is evident at end of T, that T has kept a cat or dog, with or without LL permission, I will seek to retain cost of prof pet clean & poss flea eradication costs from Deposit.

If it is about the possibility of fleas then for as little as £4 a can of flea killer can be sprayed around as the last thing you do before you leave. Keep the receipt. Most tins do 3 bed house. Do what it says on tin and leave note on door about when the 30 mins or whatever it needs is up.


I'm assuming hoovering and tidying cleaning etc.


Job's a good un

One can did my home after neighbour left with 3 cats and their fleas looked for new home. And my cat and dog were both flea treated.


But I agree with you, some unreasonable LLs do expect too much from tenants. That's why I tell all tenants to reclaim their deposit by not paying final months rent. Also saves the trouble of having LL claiming deposit was advanced rent thus not repayable.

It is an not an unreasonable LL that sues any T for not returning any property in 'similar condition to start, less FW&T.

Fleas, if not present at start of T, is classed as T damage, not FW&T.


Your advice for all Ts to withhold last month rent is akin to advising a Breach of Contract and T could end up with a CCJ.


AFAIK it is against Forum rules to advise anyone to break the Law. Take care!

It is not against any law I am aware of to pay all rent owed, including recovering deposit by using it to pay last months rent.


Yet there are laws to control LLs who did not used to repay deposit with almost impunity.


Also if the property was not fumigated before T took on tenancy then, from your argument, it is unreasonable to expect big expense on say of LL.


LLs swap property rights for rent. If all rent paid and property tidy then all's well that ends well.
