    • That should nail the setaside, and see OBS off with other factors tha can be added if they try again.
    • Hi all, Unfortunately, I'm having a difficult time having recently bought a puppy with a pre-exisiting condition that I was unaware of. I found this forum after doing some research online and the feedback was really well-informed. I'd be really grateful for any advice from legal minds :)   My story (I've tried to keep it concise for clarity): I recently bought a puppy from a home breeder. They have never breed dogs before and aren't a licensed business. Our puppy was sold as having passed a full health check from Vets4Pets. Our puppy was £1,200. Two weeks after picking him up, I took him to the vets for his second vaccinations and a health check. At that point the vet diagnosed him with a "lingually displaced canine." This means that one of his lower canines is displaced and pressing into the roof of his mouth. Our puppy would have had his full set of puppy teeth by 6 weeks,  and his first health check was at 8 weeks. Therefore, this condition was either missed from his first health check, or ignored by the breeder. Either way, the condition was certainly present before we took ownership. It's a hereditary condition. I've had three quotes from different vets for removing the tooth which range from £350 from Vets4Pets to £1000-£2000 for a dental vet specialist. The hope is that, if the puppy tooth is removed early, the adult tooth will grow in normally. If it doesn't, however, the costs could be around £2,000 for treatment on his adult canine. I've given the breeder the time he asked for to consider his options. His final offer was a full refund if we return our puppy. This isn't something we want to do as we are already so attached to him. Legally, it would also create us significant inconvenience, as a replacement isn't forthcoming - or even possible. He has refused to contribute to the cost of treatment, admit any kind of liability, or give us a partial refund and allow us to keep our puppy.   From what I've read, tier two of the Consumer Rights Act 2015 may apply - and we could argue that a the return and refund offered would cause us 'significant inconvenience' and that the puppy was misrepresnted as healthy, and therefore a partial refund is in order. Again, any advice on whether I may have a case, if I take it to the small claims court, would be really appreciated.   Thanks so much.  
    • I'm sorry but I don't have a lot of time at the moment. Please will you read around the other Hermes stories – if you haven't done so already. There are some suggested letters of claim in those. We don't have a template for this and I would suggest that you draft your own letter of claim and post it here before you send it. Also, make sure that you read around the forum about taking a small claim in the County Court and that you know all the steps. You can be certain that you will have to issue the papers. You can be certain that Hermes will ignore your letter of claim and they will only start taking you seriously once you have issue the court papers. This means that if you send the letter of claim giving them 14 days then on the fifteenth day you must issue the papers. Otherwise don't bother. Don't bluff. Be aware of your risk factors – which are that if you lose, then you won't get your money back and also you would have lost your claim fee – and if they push you to pay an allocation fee – which is quite likely – you will lose this as well. For the present claim fees and allocation fees, please have a look at the court services website. However you are probably looking at something in the region of about hundred pounds or so all told for a claim of this value. If you succeed then you will get your money back, plus interest plus your costs. We do our best to advise you here that you have to realise that the end of the day it is your risk. As I've already said, it is an extraordinary industry – because they will do it – which requires you to pay delivery fee and then if they don't carry out their side of the contract for some reason rather they don't have to offer any redress to you at all – often on the basis that you didn't ensure them against their own negligence. This is an extraordinary state of affairs. The whole industry does it this way and it seems to be a culture which has been accepted for a long time – maybe 30 or 40 years – so that now consumers think that that's the way it is. It's really quite surprising that this hasn't been directly addressed in legislation – but it hasn't. Instead you will have to fall back on the unfair terms provisions in the Consumer Rights Act. Post a draft of the letter of claim and we'll have a look at it later on
    • I agree. They are putting you back in the position you'd have been if they'd said what they should have ( "We can upgrade you to Sky Q. You'll need a new dish to use Q. If you want to revert to the non-Q system in future it'd need to be a 'hybrid' dish that supports both".)   I don't think you can realistically expect more.
    • but not related to this a/C  i bet the sar will reveal the real truth of what the balance really is made of.   even if this did result in a speculative DCA court claim. we don't lose many OD claims here.   dx

    • Hi,  
      I was in Sainsbury’s today and did scan and shop.
      I arrived in after a busy day at work and immediately got distracted by the clothes.
       
      I put a few things in my trolley and then did a shop.
      I paid and was about to get into my car when the security guard stopped me and asked me to come back in.
       
      I did and they took me upstairs.
      I was mortified and said I forgot to scan the clothes and a conditioner, 5 items.
      I know its unacceptable but I was distracted and Initially hadn’t really planned to use scan and shop.
       
      No excuse.
      I offered to pay for the goods but the manager said it was too late.
      He looked at the CCTV and because I didn’t try to scan the items he was phoning the police.
       
      The cost of the items was about £40.
      I was crying at this point and told them I was a nurse, just coming from work and I could get struck off.
       
      They rang the police anyway and they came and issued me with a community resolution notice, which goes off my record in a year.
      I feel terrible. I have to declare this to my employer and NMC.
       
      They kept me in a room on my own with 4 staff and have banned me from all stores.
      The police said if I didn’t do the community order I would go to court and they would refer me to the PPS.
       
      I’m so stressed,
      can u appeal this or should I just accept it?
       
      Thanks for reading

Parking eye appeal failed now threatening court - they breached terms first?

Hi

 

Just received the attached today 12th July. I was back in the car 4 minutes before the parking expired I was unaware that there were cameras up and was loitering near the exit waiting for the family to catch up. I thought as I was in the car out of the space that there wouldn't be a problem as I wasn't aware as I say there were cameras on the entrance/exit.

 

I presume i'll have to pay this now, i'll need to pay in installments as my only source of income is my ESA so can't afford even the £60 discounted figure. There is signage up in the car park but I didn't see mention of anything to do with ANPR cameras anywhere, as it was a pub car park with a ticket machine I assumed it'd just be the pub enforcing it.

 

Any suggestions gratefully received, thanks

Yes that came on the post today, guess it's all computer driven as nothing on the car when I left, I was back in plenty of time but loitered in entrance of the car park waiting for the wife & kids to get back, that's what makes me really sick as was honestly out of the space in time & there was only 2 other cars in there too.

 

It's a pub car park & all the signs say you can get your parking fee refunded in the pub subject to a min purchase but when you go look the pubs now shut down so you can't spend the voucher the machine prints either.

 

Anyway thanks again

First thing that comes to mind is they havent allowed you any grace period at all.

 

Think about it. They allow you two hours parking. But in their eyes, that 2 hours starts from the second you enter to the second you leave. In effect you had less than the stated 2 hours.

 

Then theres the whole thing about pofa compliance, signage, the fact they are charging for a now closed pub...


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..

OK so what do I do write back disputing it, ignore it, roast it & eat it?

Ha ha parking lie, won't be long before these lot go the same way as the rogue clamping companies, which they were before it was outlawed!

 

Wait for EB to advise you, can you go back to the car park and photograph the signage?

Doubt theyll go anywhere. Theyre owned by capita, who in turn are deeply embedded with the current government

The cameras monitor the entrance and exit, not the parking spaces

so you can drive round for 30 minutes looking for a space

and they would be none the wiser.

 

 

Essentially this is about triviality so you should appeal saying

" the driver of the vehicle did not breach the parking conditions

as they were not parked for the entire time that has been assumed by the entry/exit times

but for a time that was within the limits expressed by the signage offering a contract.

 

 

The BPA code of practice insists that operators have a grace period for such things as

finding a space, reading the signage, queueing to exit etc and this measured overstay falls into that period.

Please cancel the charge on those grounds"

 

before firing this off

a copy of the signage wouldnt go amiss as some operators try and fudge the issue

by saying on their signage that you agree to everything it says

even before you have had a chace to read it,

which of couse is rubbish but better to informed.

Of course, you could drive into the car park wait 30 mins for a space drive off without having parked & not bought a ticket then a week later you get a "fine" in the post.

 

I'll get down the tomorrow & take some photos, thanks again

did they send you a time stamped picture of entering and leaving the car park?

 

the place where I got one I noticed a lot of people walking past the entrance to the car park because it had a bus stop next to it

 

I argued that with people crossing across the path of the camera

 

it caused a miss read of the licence plate

 

so I demanded to see time stamped photographs of my car entering and leaving

 

the parking company ukcps had to back down

May be irrelevant, but looking at the notice it does not say what you are supposed to have done, unless it is explicitly stated in the redacted parts. It says in the blurb below that you have either not displayed a ticket or remaining in the car park longer than permitted, so which is it that they're claiming?

No redacted parts are strictly just personal info & dates.

 

Interesting point haven't had chance to go today but hopefully tomorrow will be OK

Hi

 

Got a ticket awhile back for parking in pub car park & overstaying, I was still technically in the car park but I was stopped in driveway just before where the hidden ANPR camera is now.

 

Few weeks later "fine" letter appears, wrote back, I was ignored, wrote again as heard nothing, got letter back saying "out of time" even tho first appeal was in time. They claim they never received it.

 

Got Popla letter, filled all of that in carefully. Just had an email today turning the appeal down.

 

I had included the ridiculously tiny writing on signs over 6 foot in the air that I couldn't read at all.

 

I also appealed on grounds of breach of contract. You get a voucher stating you can redeem your parking fee in the pub which is why I parked there, effectively free parking.

 

No signs up anywhere warning you that the pub has closed down so no way to redeem the voucher.

 

Popla have said its not grounds for appeal & dismissed the fact the car wasn't parked as I was in it & it wasn't in a space it was being driven but that was refused too.

 

In hindsight I perhaps should have asked here first re Popla appeal but it seemed so straight forward & with all the photos etc thought I stood a good chance.

 

Am rather unwell with several neurological conditions so am disabled & on lots of drugs so please be gentle.

 

Thanks
