    • its a 12mts contract else why would it say till 2021 and first month..   simply states they don't charge a joining fee clever marketing ploy as people don't read things. it IS a monthly payment, that runs for 12mts.   but anyway there is stuff and all anyone can do to you.   dx        
    • Hi Slick,   Amazingly fast reply, thank you!   According to the reference on the payment it says "ON 24 SEP BCC" and the payment cleared 25th September at 11:26   I was simply told to sign up on the website by a staff member in the gym, no further information was given to me by them. The website stated that it's a rolling monthly membership that could be cancelled at any time "No contract membership JUST £14.99 a month, until 2021*" As far as I am aware there was absolutely no minimum membership length, unless there's some small print I've missed somewhere. But Harlands haven't mentioned anything about me being obliged to pay for a certain length of time so... I've attached a picture to this post of what I signed up for.   Also, I'm not sure if this has any relevance at all but the building is plastered with £9.99/month signs EVERYWHERE yet it costs £14.99 when you go on the website. False advertising 🙄 Could perhaps use that as leverage in a letter if it comes to it, I dunno? 😂

    • I came across this discussion recently and just wanted to give my experience of A Shade Greener that may help others regarding their boiler finance agreement.
       
      We had a 10yr  finance contract for a boiler fitted July 2015.
       
      After a summer of discontent with ASG I discovered that if you have paid HALF the agreement or more you can legally return the boiler to them at no cost to yourself. I've just returned mine the feeling is liberating.
       
      It all started mid summer during lockdown when they refused to service our boiler because we didn't have a loft ladder or flooring installed despite the fact AS installed the boiler. and had previosuly serviced it without issue for 4yrs. After consulting with an independent installer I was informed that if this was the case then ASG had breached building regulations,  this was duly reported to Gas Safe to investigate and even then ASG refused to accept blame and repeatedly said it was my problem. Anyway Gas Safe found them in breach of building regs and a compromise was reached.
       
      A month later and ASG attended to service our boiler but in the process left the boiler unusuable as it kept losing pressure not to mention they had damaged the filling loop in the process which they said was my responsibilty not theres and would charge me to repair, so generous of them! Soon after reporting the fault I got a letter stating it was time we arranged a powerflush on our heating system which they make you do after 5 years even though there's nothing in the contract that states this. Coincidence?
       
      After a few heated exchanges with ASG (pardon the pun) I decided to pull the plug and cancel our agreement.
       
      The boiler was removed and replaced by a reputable installer,  and the old boiler was returned to ASG thus ending our contract with them. What's mad is I saved in excess of £1000 in the long run and got a new boiler with a brand new 12yr warranty. 
       
      You only have to look at TrustPilot to get an idea of what this company is like.

    • Dazza a few months ago I discovered a good friend of mine who had ten debts with cards and catalogues which he was slavishly paying off at detriment to his own family quality of life, and I mean hardship, not just absence of second holidays or flat screen TV's.
       
      I wrote to all his creditors asking for supporting documents and not one could provide any material that would allow them to enforce the debt.
       
      As a result he stopped paying and they have been unable to do anything, one even admitted it was unenforceable.
       
      If circumstances have got to the point where you are finding it unmanageable you must ask yourself why you feel the need to pay.  I guarantee you that these companies have built bad debt into their business model and no one over there is losing any sleep over your debt to them!  They will see you as a victim and cash cow and they will be reluctant to discuss final offers, only ways to keep you paying with threats of court action or seizing your assets if you have any.
       
      They are not your friends and you owe them no loyalty or moral duty, that must remain only for yourself and your family.
       
      If it was me I would send them all a CCA request.   I would bet that not one will provide the correct response and you can quite legally stop paying them until such time as they do provide a response.   Even when they do you should check back here as they mostly send dodgy photo copies or generic rubbish that has no connection with your supposed debt.
       
      The money you are paying them should, as far as you are able, be put to a savings account for yourself and as a means of paying of one of these fleecers should they ever manage to get to to the point of a successful court judgement.  After six years they will not be able to start court action and that money will then become yours.
       
      They will of course pursue you for the funds and pass your file around various departments of their business and out to third parties.
       
      Your response is that you should treat it as a hobby.  I have numerous files of correspondence each faithfully organised showing the various letters from different DCA;s , solicitors etc with a mix of threats, inducements and offers.   It is like my stamp collection and I show it to anyone who is interested!

On one of your NtK's (at least) there should be pictures (or the details of where you can go and look at pictures) of the vehicle that show the ticket on the windscreen. Without those, any claim that a NtD was issued is futile.

 

That would be the same as me saying "I put a ticket on your car, even if you didn't ever see it, please pay me £100". Without a picture to prove it a) would you pay me? And b) Would I have any rights to issue a claim against you?

 

The answers to both would be no, absolutely not.

 

It's exactly the same claim as these clowns are making! :wink:

Thye will have to produce it in their evidence bundle. If you have never received any of these documents then you say so in your witness statement.

I haven’t seen the NTD prove and on the NTK letter there was only two images showing my vehicle with date and time.

May I ask when is the latest I can send my witness statement?

My trial date is on Monday 09/04.

 

The direction given for the claim is to deliver the documents no later than 14 days before the hearing.

 

if I send it on Saturday 24th March with next day delivery postage,

they properly receive it on Monday 26th (which is the exact 14 days before hearing) because they don’t work on Sunday?!

 

or to be safe I should send it on Thursday 22nd March so they can recieve it on Friday 23rd ‘working day’?

 

I wanted to wait for Gladstone’s statement first but didn’t want to miss my deadline

Hi, I’m just working on my witness statement, I wanted some help with how to word: that the driver has only overstay by 9mins as there are no parking machine at the area, I think it is a reasonable time to have gone over.

 

Or I shouldn’t put anything like that on my statement?

 

Thank you!

Without trawling back through the thread....

 

Are you saying that, let's say there was a 3hr limit, that the driver was only there for 3hrs 9min?

 

If that is correct, take a copy of this document with you to court, and mention it by page & clause in your witness statement.

 

The term that you're looking for is on page 12. Clause 15. Specifically 15.2.

 

Drivers must be allowed a minimum period of 10 minutes to leave a site after a pre-paid or permitted period of parking has expired.

 

You'll notice that that says MUST, not might, maybe or should.

 

That alone will scupper any chance they have of making a successful claim in court. (although shouldn't be your only point made in your WS)

To be exact is 12mins, they issued the PCN at 22:11pm which is 9 mins overstay but evidence images show the car still there at 22:14pm but the vehicle is running. I thought this act only apply to public road with certain conditions?

The images of the car still on site don't matter. They issued the PCN at paid time +9 minutes. They've shot themselves in both feet!

 

Despite what the PPC's like to claim, "Parking" is not the same as the vehicle being "on site".

 

 

The document that I linked to is the IPC CoP for AOS members, of which PPM is one. They must comply, no matter how much they'd like to wiggle.

Thanks a lot!

You have put a strong point in for me as I was struggling to find a strong point for my statement... and my head was about to explode!

 

I'm just finalising the last bit of the statement, if you or other site team member can help to correct my wording, it will be greatly appreciated!!! Thanks!

As DF syas, there is a CoP that the have to adhere to or show that their system is equal or better to the CoP.

 

This is also covered in other court cases so have a look at the parking pranksters blog/web page and do a search for relevant cases.

there certainly is one from a few years back where the judge decided that 15 minutes all round to arrive, read signs, find change then get back into car, queue to exit etc is reasonable if using ANPR to determine overstay.

 

The contract is for PARKING, not visiting and this point need to be shoved down their throats

As you have not yet had sight of the Gladrags WS, I do not recommend that you post your WS in public. If Gladrags happen to see it (and we know that they look at the forums) it may give them a chance to tailor their own WS to counter any arguments that you make.

 

For now, I would suggest that your PM myself, dx100uk and ericsbrother (you can do so in one PM) so that we can look at it and suggest any edits or additional pointers. With a view to posting it here once you have received the copy & paste Roboclaim WS from Gladrags.

But actually I just read para 15.3 'The reference to 10 minutes in 15.2 above shall not apply where the period of pre-paid or permitted parking does not exceed 1 hour providing that the signage on the site makes it clear to the motorist, in prominent font, that no grace period applies on that land.'

Does that mean only if PPM has state on their the signage 'that no grace period applies on that land' otherwise the 10 mins grace period will still need apply to them because the parking condition is 1 hour max? And no such say about grace period on their signage.

It means that if you paid for 1 hours parking AND the signs say, words to the effect of "No grace period applies".

 

If however you paid for 1½hrs parking, the sign might still say "No grace period applies", but it does as per 15.2 as 15.3 does not exclude it.

 

Sometimes you need to read these things as looking for what they don't say, rather than what they do :wink:

it really doesnt matter what the sign says it has been determined by case law that the grace period exists so that it that.

 

I can put up a sign saying trespassers will be eaten by my big dog but that doesnt make it legal to set dogs on trespassers because there is already applicable law in that regard

I have PM my WS, please check.

 

also another question, if I print out the IPC CoP/ POFA 2012 do I need to attach it with the WS bundle and give it to all parties or I can just take the copy with me in case the judge want to see it?

Print out the relevant sections only, 3 copies just to be sure. 1 for you to refer to, 1 for the judge and 1 for whichever poor sod gets the short straw of representing for Gladrags that day. More on that in my PM shortly.
