    • Hi there, the company name on the bit of paper is:   Bristow & Sutor   Says the total amount £990.49 and this includes £235 enforement stage fees,  The CTAX was owed to North Tyneside Council. The guy also said that it wasn't just for CTAX. Other debts were combined.   I did leave other debts behind too when I moved. Perhaps a utility bill, credit card debts and a Provi doorstep loan.   I think the guy said that he would be back Saturday too. This is what I'm trying to avoid multiple visits. Don't want my mam to get upset.   Thanks for the help.   Bear
    • Hi   Just to be clear a Tenant cannot refuse to pay rent after they have signed your Tenancy Agreement for the property irrespective if they are claiming no hot water for xx weeks especially when you have evidence to the contrary.   As they are now 2 months in arrears they have breached your tenancy agreement and you could go down the section 8 route for the rent arrears to evict your tenant and the letting agent you employed should be fully aware of this.   The hot water issue sounds more like the tenant didn't have a clue how to operate the heating system within your property   Has the Letting Agent informed this Tenant about the rents arrears and their Guarantor who would also be liable for the rents arrears?   Now the Tenant that wants to leave early as there is no 'Break Clause' in your Tenancy Agreement signed they would have to negotiate with you the Landlord to leave early as they are then in breach of that signed Tenancy Agreement.   Now before doing any of this is they have paid a Deposit it should be protected in a Tenancy Deposit Scheme and they should have been give a copy of that deposit schemes prescribed terms.
    • So a bit of an update as I haven’t posted for a while   I have received a court date of the 14th of Feb 2020 (maybe they will take me for a nice meal afterwards?) so I am starting to prepare my witness statement.    today I have received a letter from BW legal in response to my CPR letter yet again ignoring the fact that their T&Cs do not cover double parking. They are also now starting to hint that I was parked out of the bay yet the images provided on their evidence of the three tickets they are claiming for don’t evidence this as they are such bad quality.  stapled to the back of this is another letter. As a “gesture of good will”, the client is offering an out of court settlement figure of £500 payable in the next 5 days. Me thinks they are starting to realise they may not have a leg to stand on here!
    • firstly , they are not a Debt collector [never confuse the two - a DCA chasing consumer credit debt is totally powerless and have ZERO legal powers to do or take anything - they have no more legal powers than you or I do ] these will be bailiffs and do they have legal powers.   However, the good bit is that unlike what you might have seen on TV, for a council CTAX liability order [please confirm there is or NOT a CCJ registered check your creit file] there is NO right of forced entry. The bottom line is, bar all the arm waving, is, that if you simply totally ignore them, they will eventually go away.   Now what they can do is two fold on CTAX. basically add fees to a set limit.   the first is a notice of enforcement letter. this comes with a fee of £75 and gives you 7 days to set up some sort of payment plan.   the second is an actual visit, where by a further fee of £235, whereby the fees are now £310 , the maximum they can ever add to the CTAX bill. this is typically accompanied by a threat to removed goods, it's cleverly worded or 'explained' to make you 'think' they can waltz in any take anything they like. THEY CANNOT unless YOU let them in. which you don't, nor leave doors unlocked as they can then enter through what is called 'peaceful entry'.   in real term, the seizure of goods is limited to stuff outside like cars YOU might own that are not behind locked gates.   so i'm not too sure what stage you are at  so please clarify. the name of the bailiff company. how much you now owe the county council the CTAX is owed too.   if you have any/all paperwork please scan it to PDF  after redaction - read our upload guide]   one last point. they don't keep coming around they don't keep ringing. neither of those gander them anymore money so they don't bother.   dx      
    • Hi Everybody I moved into my parents house quite recently. My mam is aged and extremely ill (it's just me and her living in the house) and I moved from the North to the South of England to take care of her.   Now I've got a CCJ against me for unpaid Council tax from when I was living in the North and a debt collector has just showed up at the door. Now I don't have the money to pay the entire amount straight away. But I'm willing to try and enter in some kind of payment plan and gradually pay down the debt. However my main concern is that they don't keep coming around and phoning the house threatening and harassing my mam over her sons debt.   However the guy at the door was threatening to seize goods and have them sold at public auction. Getting bailiffs to break in etc.   When I told him that I've nothing of any real value he said he could just take whatever was in the house. Something about if she couldn't prove whatever was hers then they could just take whatever (I'm not 100% this but I think something to this affect).   He left me a "Notification of Enforcement agent visit" sheet of paper.   From the first paragraph it says:   "As an enforcement agent I've attended your premises today with the intention of taking control of your goods in accordance with the taking control of goods (fees) regulations 2014. At this time your goods are bound. You cannot remove, sell or otherwise dispose of them"   Thus I'd appreciate any advice that readers my be able to offer. Does anyone know the law regarding "seizing assets" when the debtor is not the homeowner/tenant?   tia Bear

Hi all

 

Hope you can help my husband has received a claim form for a ticket we ignored last year thinking they would go away, I'm in trouble now for ignoring it but hope you can help with the best way to dispute the claim

He was visiting a property in the area he parked for work and we are unsure who owns the land to check if he would have been 'authorised'.

We didn't keep the original notice so don't have the original photo which looked like it was taken by a person on a phone and they haven't put any details on the claim form.

I can plan to go back there to take pictures of signage if needed.

Thanks in advance

this is the worst particulars of claim I have ever seen,

it fails to mention

what you owe and why,

the date and place of the event that gave rise to a possible claim

and is just a generic cut and paste that seems to be part of a witness statement rather than the detail of a claim.

 

 

No breakdown of the amount,

no mention whether the claim is for a contractual sum or a breach of contract,

in short so lacking in substance it is impossible to begin to submit a defence.

 

reword this staement slightly and send it off the the courts service.

If you have used the online facility to acknowledge the claim then you may have trouble getting this read so find a postal address as well,

such as Northampton bulk centre or thei processing unit in Wigan

 

I would still ask for the claim to be struck out as having no cause for ation and being without merit under CPR16.4. highlighting the above

 

When you have to submit an outline defence you start this iff with the same comments and then use a more general bullet point of no contractual laibility as defendant is not driver and there is no keeper liability as POFA not adhered to.

 

That will be enough for now,

CEL will most likely drop the claim if it isnt thrown out by HMCTS for being garbage

thanks - i will do that,

I had thought it was just a standard format they issue to anyone

as the only details they have put are on the 'schedule of information'

but not sure how true the arrival and departure times are

I guess they could have made them up.

 

 

If it did end up in court they would have to prove the arrival and departure times wouldn't they ?

It will end up in court if you don't point this out to the courts service

even asking for a strike out at this stage doesn't stop the matter getting to a hearing, it just makes it the first thing CEL will be asked

 

read about other claims being chucked out for insufficient cause for action and get your letter in.

You can add a sentence or 2 to your defence on these lines as well as a separate letter.

 

The next part of your defence will be no keeper liability created under the POFA and defendant demands STRICT PROOF from CEL of who was driving at the time as they are the proper defendant for any possible claim.

 

Then say no breach of contract by defendant so no monies are owed to claimant by the defendant.

 

That covers all matters that you would want to raise later and lays it on with a trowel that they are barking up the wrong tree.

Thanks ericsbrother, I'm just about to do letter to court requesting strike off. No response yet from CPR 31.14 they signed for it on 19-6.

 

The driver is the registered owner in this case do I still mention no keeper liability ?

 

Should i leave until nearer to 10th July to submit defence ?

 

Thanks

I'm not sure what you mean about the driver being the registed owner,.

they have sued you as the registered keeper and have no idea who the driver was at the time and you are not going to help them find out you NEVER say who was driving.

 

 

READ ABOUT KEEPER LIABILITY AND THE POFA BEFORE YOU SAY OR DO ANYTHING ELSE

 

As for your defence,

you leave it as late as possible so they dont see what you have to say and then submit a late POC filing to correct their errors

 

As for the CPR31.14, did you give them 14 days to respond as normal?

if so then that time hasnt elapsed and you will be made to look foolish if you bang on about it in a letter to court.

Hi

just preparing defence to file on 9th July do you think this covers everything we need to ? We haven't been to take pictures of the signage on site (quite a distance for us) do you think we should do this before submitting defence or is it not relevant at this stage ? Thanks

 

 

It is admitted that Defendant is the registered keeper of the vehicle in question.

 

However it is denied that the Claimant has authority to bring this claim on the following grounds:-

 

1. The Protection of Freedom Act 2012 Schedule 4 has not being complied with. The registered keeper has not been proven as the driver, as such the keeper can only be held liable if the claimant has fully complied with the strict requirements.

 

2. The proper claimant is the landowner. Strict proof is required that there is a chain of contracts leading from the landowner to CIVIL ENFORCEMENT LIMITED.

 

3. CIVIL ENFORCEMENT LIMITED are not the lawful occupier of the land.

(i) absent a contract with the lawful occupier of the land being produced by the claimant, or a chain of contracts showing authorisation stemming from the lawful occupier of the land, I have the reasonable belief that they do not have the authority to issue charges on this land in their own name and that they have no right to bring action regarding this claim.

 

4. It is denied that the Claimant entered into a contract with the Defendant. As held by the Upper Tax Tribunal in Vehicle Control Services Limited v HMRC [2012] (TCC), any contract requires offer and acceptance.

 

6. The Protection of Freedoms Act does not permit the Claimant to recover a sum greater than the parking charge on the day before a Notice to Keeper was issued. The Claimant cannot recover additional charges. The Defendant also has the reasonable belief that the Claimant has not incurred the stated additional costs and it is put to strict proof that they have actually been incurred.

 

7. The provision is a penalty and not a genuine pre-estimate of loss for the following reasons:

a) The claimant is not the landowner and suffers no loss whatsoever as a result of a vehicle parking at the location in question

b) The amount claimed is a charge and evidently disproportionate to any loss suffered by the Claimant

c) the penalty bears no relation to the circumstances because it remains the same no matter whether a motorist overstays by ten second or ten years.

 

 

8. Save as expressly mentioned above, the Particulars of Claim is denied in its entirety and is an exact copy of particulars of claims sent to other claimants at different locations nationwide. It is denied that the Claimant is entitled to the relief claimed or any relief at all.

 

9. CEL have failed to show cause for action by way of sight of planning permission for their signage under the Town and Country Planning Act 2007 and a contract between themselves and the landowner assigning the right to enter into contracts and make civil claims in their own name by way of a CPR 31.14 request.

 

10. The signage displayed is prohibitive rather than contractual therefore no contract has been formed to be broken.

 

PS sent request to strike out to court on 5th July

drop point 7,

that is what Beavis was about,

they dont have to show a loss,

they can use commercial justification.

 

If you leave it in you will leave yourself open to questioning on it and as it is irrelevent to your defence best avoided

 

Many commentators raised eyebrows when the supreme court ruled on this point as it menat that the principle of a level playing field had disappeared and consumer contract law didnt apply to parking either.

 

the law as it stands places each person in a contractual relationship that applies to business to business contracts but in those contracts each party has the opportunity to amend the contract before acceptance.

 

With a sign on a stick on a bit of waste land you have no such opportunity so we get the worst of both worlds.

 

I can see whay the judges made the decision, it unifies the law regarding contracts but also shows the background of most judges, commercial contract litigation and thus their specialist knowledge may make it easy for them to make an informed decision whether to park or not isnt true for the rest of us.

 

Do we take a lawyer with us every time we go to the supermarket so they can decypher the garbled english on most parking signs?.

hi quick update, defence lodged and confirmation received. no response to CPR31.14 request.

 

 

Following letter to strike out court have sent me a strike out application form N244 that I will fill in.

Crikey just read the N244 application form letter and there is a cost of £255 to request a strike out - looks like that won't be an option now !

you get the money back when you win.

Stop being a twonk and get on with it.

 

 

If you are poor there is a remission of fees from you can fill in and the cost is reduced to as little as zero.

 

 

Having the judgement on your credit files will kill any chance of a mortgage, new tenancy, mobile phone contract etc

so even if you lose it is monetary worth spending unless you intend to go bankrupt.

Wake up
