    • I think I know the answer , but We booked our dog into boarding kennels for our holiday , starting Tuesday 16 Unfortunately about 2 weeks ago the dog picked up a parasite called giardia .this causes soft stools etc . The vet gave us the treatment and said the dog “should “ be ok in time for the boarding .A side effect of the treatment is that the dog has still has soft stools , similar the those when the parasite is present We messaged the kennel Friday , explaining the situation , also topping up the final payment , It appears the kennel did not receive the message , so we spoke yesterday ( Monday ) They were unsure as to whether the dog should be accepted . over night they massaged us and cancelled the booking , we do have a plan “B” this involves our daughter moving  back home for a week . Their T&Cs are quite tight , regarding cancelation by the client , But in this case they cancelled , have I got a hope of getting a refund , less , say , a admin charge , over £300 fees have been paid for 10 days boarding We do have "Pet Plan" Insurance Extract from T&Cs     “You agree that if you do not arrive on the start date of your booking, you will be liable for the full payment per day. You agree that should you return from holiday early and decide to collect your dog before the end of your booking, you will not be entitled to any refund of payment. In the unlikely event of illness or other circumstances resulting in a reduced stay with us, the total booking fee is still due and you will not be entitled to a refund or part refund. You agree that if you cancel giving less than 14 days notice the total fee is due. You agree that if you cancel your booking you will lose your full deposit. If you bring less dogs than are booked, you are still responsible for the balance due. “
    • The SD is dead, when  I applied to have it set aside a copy was sent to by the court to Credit Agricole the debt owner,  it was part of my appeal that Credil Limits were not authorised to make the application. Credit Limits then withdrew the application. As far as I am aware Credit Agricole did not respond. Creditl Limits came back to me ignoring the grounds of appeal see letter 15/4. They refer to statute barred, the loan was for double glazing it was not part of the mortgage so I still contend that the 5 year rule applies.   I did not contest the original French court order but before the hearing  I wrote to Credit Agricole offering to pay over a long period of time as the home in France was about to be repossessed by the mortgage bank (and it was). Credit Agricole did not reply to my letters. The original judgement had the following 'Since immediate enforcement is not a necessity, it shall not be ordered.'   See compliments slip below purported to be from Credit Agricole, undated and unsigned, this is probably in response to my appeal when I said that I had nothing from Credit Agricole suggesting that CLI were agents. I am not convinced that this is genuine, CLI have had plenty of opportunity to produce this since they were 'appointed'  in 2018!   Can CLI represent Credit Agricole here in the UK as they are debt collectors and as far as I can see are  not registered with the FSA?   Thanks again   comps.pdf letter.pdf

As a gym member, we're allowed 2 1/2 hr free parking. On the day I took my daughter's car and input my car's reg on terminal. After gym session, I went to lidl for some shopping but paid via cash. I thought I'm still within 2 1/2hr time limit so didn't bother to extend on lid's terminal.

 

1) Should I declare that I'm the driver on the day? Then explain the situation.

2) As the fine is for exceeding the time limit of 01:30hrs, I'm thinking that gym membership parking allowance should cover despite the actual stay being 02:46.

3) the registered keeper (my daughter) is not in UK since Oct and won't be back until summer of this year. We can provide copy of passport and visa to prove it but really don't want to give passport details.

 

Never had civil parking fine and not sure how best to proceed. Any help would be appreciated.

 

Thanks.

If you got a ticket on your car then do NOTHING until you get thr ntk through the post. If you appral before this youblose all the protection the protection of freedoms act affords you. Its a mistake a lot of people make.

 

Its also not a fine. Just a silly speculative invoice.

 

You definitley shouldnt even consider giving them passport details etc

 

Parking companies are just cowboy clampers using a.different name since clamping is now illegal.

 

 

Sit tight and the regulars will be around to give you more detailed info.

 

As an aside can you convert your images to pdf.


Any advice i give is my own and is based solely on personal experience. If in any doubt about a situation , please contact a certified legal representative or debt counsellor..

you are asking the wrong questions. What you shuld be asking is are these bandits entitled to ask me for money in the first placeUnderstand, it is not a fine, it is a begging letter that may or may not have a contract supporting its claim.

 

We need to understand how the car park works regarding the 2 enterprises that you have used. Each has a terminal that you clock in with, do you have to clock out of the gym one?

 

I would be writing to both Lidla nd the Gym to say that you have been issued with thsi chareg and because the parking co's systems are unfit for purpose you have been billed qwhen you shouldnt have and waht are they going to do to correct their contractors errors. Dont write to the parking co yet, wait for a response from LIdl and the gym.

 

I would be telling teh gym that your continued membership depends on how this plays out and in the case of Lidl as long as you can remember some of the items you purchased that day and the time of day ( on this NTK) then they can tell that you were a genuine customer and they should cancel. If they dont I would be telling them that you will be returning the goods as you dont wnat anything to do with them ever again and this nonsense witht eh parking co is a breach of the contract you entered with them

Thanks gents.

 

 

First thing, it's a NTK, at least it's whats written on it.

 

 

I'll try to talk with someone on gym tomorrow but guess it'll be the standard answer.

 

 

I looked more into Athena ANPR Ltd and it seems they're not member of BPA but IPC, so no POPLA.

 

 

I looked more into it and general guide is to write as a registered keeper.

it doesnt matter what capacity you write to lidl or the gym as (member so that would be sensible)

 

 

the important thing is to go through whoever you can before you have to enter into any conversation with the parking co.

 

 

If they are told to cancel they will, if they are ASKED to cancel they wont.

Yes each has it's own terminal.

We input our reg and press confirm.

No clock out.

 

I talked with someone in gym today and was asked to call the number on NTK.

 

 

The girl was saying that we gym goers normally get discount and charge reduced to £20 :razz:.

 

 

Still unsure if I should be calling and telling them that I was the driver though

 

 

. Any advice.

Hi folks,

 

Today iv received typical civil parking notice from Athena. 45 quid ( daylight robbery and insult ) !

Iv overstayed 10 mins. Went into lidl to buy water and some biscuits, paid cash. threw out receipt.

Afterwards went to the bank which is in opposite street.

Came back to car and drew away. I don't usually shop at Lidl, hence not familiar with their modus operandi.

Any advise how to proceed? What if i rang Lidl management and explain, would that help to resolve it?

 

Thx

 

Arthur

start a new thread and you will gte advice that is for youer situation rather than confusing someone else.

Ringing anyone at the moment wont help, you need to know what to say first and that advice will come when we have seen the NTK .

OK, their demand states that shoppers using the terminal are allowed 1.5 hours. Well, you werent a shopper so that doesnt apply to you. We really need to see the wording on the signage at the entrance to the car park and it would help if you hadnt blanked out where the event took place, we cant research who owns the land or look at the entrance and layout on google without this information. Lidl are unusual inasmuch as they own a lot of their stores outright but by no means all of them, most other big retailers merely lease the property which means any parking contract is usually duff. When we understand the relationship between the gym, store and car park we will advise what to say and to whom. In the maenwhile find you Lidl receipt or at least list the items you bought as they can find your purchase receipt on their system from that information.
