    • Hello all,    I have received a letter from Advantis in regards to an overpayment of carers allowance I received when I got a job whilst I was caring for my mother. I did not know I had to inform them etc.    Long story short, I had a compliance phonecall with carers and nothing more was said.    I stopped caring for my mum shortly after and cancelled my carers allowance too.    I was employed for 4 months at the beginning of 2018.    Apparently the DWP and carers have sent letters but I haven't responded so they've gone through Advantis to recover the amount owed. I moved house shortly after cancelling everything and had no contact from them at all.    They sent letters to my previous address so they told me that's why it's been passed onto Advantis.    Today DWP told me that the only thing they can do is take payment in full, or deal with Advantis to come up with a payment plan.    I spoke to Advantis who asked me to pay in full or in two installments, I refused and they then said they've put my account on hold for 30 days whilst I go away and work out my monthly income etc so they can go through an affordability assessment to work out how much I can pay back and how often.      What shall I do? DWP tell me there's nothing they can do as it's been passed onto Advantis.    Advantis tell me they are working on behalf of the DWP... Nobody will tell me who owns the debt.     What shall I do?    Thank you all in advance for your amazing help.     
    • Hi, I have just received a pcn from Euro Car Parks saying that my car was in one of their car parks for 13 mins without making a payment. The reason being is that my husband was waiting for me, but where he thought I would only be 5 mins I was longer because of health issues and I had to take a rest. As if this wasn't enough, unbelievably I have just received ANOTHER notice saying I had not paid for a ticket on the 9th of September. I would like to mention the car park charges are so cheap, at £1:20 all day, it would be insane not to pay. We have used this car park only around 4 times and have always paid, excepting th time the car was waiting for 13mins. What a shock I have got receiving these notices. I wonder if I accidentally keyed in my registration incorrectly? Please can someone advise.
    • I also have a similar problem with Advantis for DWP overpayment of carers allowance. I've only just moved into my own house and they've sent a letter asking for my whereabouts and a business matter that needs my urgent attention. I have found out from the DWP and carers that I owe £1,131 and Advantis want me to go through an affordability assessment.    I am not sure who owns the debt, DWP or Advantis and where I stand with this 
    • I've just had this emailed from CarMoney. I'm so confused, I really don't know what I'm supposed to be doing and with whom. "Apologies for the delay in response. I have spoken to Oodle regarding the complaint and unfortunatly, they would require an independent report to be carried out on the vehicle. The burden of proof would lie with yourself.   I can certainly help by giving you the details of Scotia, who is the company that we use."   Everything I've read says that I did the right thing by exercising my rights under the CRA 2015 with the dealer. That was done within the six-months, so the burden of proof should be on the dealer still? Or am I completely wrong??
    • Heard nothing for 6 & half years until last week. A big fat letter from Barclays upholding my PPI claim which had gone to the Ombudsman (news to me) and enclosing all the waffle and finally at the end a cheque for £3659.20 and advising that £454.85 was taxed - this I can reclaim as I don't pay tax currently.

Good Evening

today I have been the recipient of a nice little piece of paper requiring me to pay £50 to the council for a parking infringement.

 

The PCN states it was contravention 30, parked for longer than permitted.

 

However I was not parked in a limited waiting area, i was actually parked on DYL which should be an 01 offence however i also had my blue badge on display....

so the question is can i appeal this pcn on the basis that the ticket was incorrectly issued on the basis of the wrong contravention code.

 

cheers

lets

ps was parked for longer than the 3 hours on the badge

Yes you can. The council, of course, will reject your challenge, so the real question is whether an adjudicator would accept the arguement that when the 3 hrs allowed with a blue badge runs out, the contravention becomes parked in a restricted street during prescribed hours or that you were parked longer than permitted due to the BB exemption.

 

Your call, but personally I'd pay the discount

The code should be the offence cited and you admit overstaying. The ticket was correctly issued. The CEO could have gone for the 01 but didnt, they could have issued a ticket citing both infringements but didnt so they cant apply the 01 retrospectively. You can bet that the notes of the CEO will corroborate the ticket so the best bet is as suggested, pay up.

I disagree.

 

Code 30 is for staying longer than allowed in a parking bay. For DYL there's no such contravention. After the blue badge exemption expires (three hours) you are in contravention of the DYL - code 01 should be used.

 

Definitely appeal it.

Hi All

Just to update, I appealed the PCN on the basis of the CEO used the wrong contravention code and the response I got was

" As you are aware the Penalty Charge was issued to you as your vehicle was parked in excess of 3 Hours on double yellow lines, In light of the fact however that the Civil Enforcement Officer used an incorrect contravention code i am willing on this occassion to accept your representation and i have arranged for the cancellation of this Penalty Charge Notice.

 

PCN CANCELLED

 

 

cheers

Cheers Jamberson ....here is the appeal I Used

 

I managed to get back to my car today at 16:30 hrs

This exact location does indeed have a parking restriction and that restriction is

the presence of 2 Yellow Lines.

with this restriction being in place a disabled driver can then park on said DYLs

for a maximum of 3 hours. with no return to that location within one hour.

The Pcn that was issued stated that contravention 30 had occurred, (parked

longer than permitted) which occurs when a car is parked for longer than the

allotted time in a restricted street, for example limited waiting area.

Therefore I believe this PCN has been issued incorrectly.

If however you do believe the PCN was issued correctly, and it is believed that I

should be paid, then I would be inclined to appeal further...and therefore I would

like a copy of the issuing officers pocket book showing details of my car and log

details a copy of the computer log from SIDem showing where and when my car

was logged in and how many times it was logged and what the vehicle valve

positions were at the times of the car being logged in. as well as this information I

would also like to see a copy of each of the photos that where taken by the CEO.
