    • Hi   I think you also need to send this company a Subject Access Request (SAR) simply asking for 'ALL DATA' that simple phrase covers whichever format they hold it in whether it be written, email phone recording etc.   They then have 30 Calendar day to respond only once they have acknowledged receipt of your SAR request. note a SAR if now Free   As for them stating they don't have to stop processing your data they need to comply with the General Data Protection Regulations 2018 (GDPR) which is now part of Data Protection Act 2018 (DPA)   This link breaks down the GDPR so its easier to understand your rights:  https://www.privacy-regulation.eu/en/index.htm    
    • There is so much wrong with their WS. You stopped for a very short time yet she seems to equate that as being parked! That flies in the face of what parking means. There have been several cases in Court where Judges have defined the meaning of parked. Not one of them describes it as stopping for a few minutes with the engine running and the driver remaining in the vehicle. And why on earth is POFA being included on s28? The airport comes under Byelaws and that land is specifically not covered by POFA. Then on s30 she cites  Parking Eye v Beavis talking aboiut establishing a contract between the parking company and the motorist to park! then from s33 to s40 they are trying to bamboozle the Court by trying to minimise the effect of the Byelaws.It is the borough of Southend on Sea that decides the rules there- https://d1z15fh6odiy9s.cloudfront.net/files/sen-byelaws-1983-297c76b8. S12 and s13 confirm that the signs erected by the Council are the ones to be observed. You can also use the Forum search box and cases that have been won against VCS above. s46 The claimant submits the signs are not prohibitive!  The dictionary description of" Prohibitive"- (of a law or rule) forbidding or restricting something.  If it looks like a duck and walks like a duck...Is she dumb or what. s47 Further misdirection-this is nothing to do with parking s48 refers to the" lawful occupier" not the landowner which is Southend Council.  I end up going back to s5 which gives the impression that VCS complies totally with  their Code of Practice and therefore you, the motorist must be guilty. yet Time and time again VCS loses in Court because they have not complied with their CoP. The Parking Prankster indicates some of them.  http://parking-prankster.blogspot.com/2017/02/ and in the case below they took someone to Court knowing that they did not have the right to take this person to Court at all. http://nebula.wsimg.com/e3da92cb966c72de63ec1f98605c2954?AccessKeyId=4CB8F2392A09CF228A46&disposition=0&alloworigin=1   VCS v Ms O C8DP9D8C Birmingham 1/8/2017 this was taking a motorist to Court  when the contract for the car park was down to Excel. VCS have lost many cases in Court knowing that they did not have the right to sue as there was no contract between them and motorists-total breach of their CoP and should have put their ability to access motorists data  were it not for the weakness of DVLA and the IPC. VCS v Ms M. 3QZ53955 25/01/2016 Claim discontinued. Costs awarded to motorist. as above-masquerading as Excel yet again.

    • I’m in desperate need of help
       
      I bought some clothes online in may through Evans and paid through PayPal
      returned them all seven days later
       
      I waited the 14days for my refund and no refund came
      I put in a dispute through PayPal but I didn’t get any emails to escalate the case - PayPal closed it. 
      evans said they couldn’t refund the money because PayPal have cancelled the refund because of the open dispute
       
      I contacted PayPal
      they said the dispute had been closed but Evans at no point had attempted a refund.
      fast forward to today
       
      I’ve got copies of numerous messages sent to and from twitter messages as it’s the only way I can contact them
      I’ve also contacted their customer service too
      all I get is PayPal have cancelled refund because dispute is still open.
       
      I have proved that the dispute is closed
      I have got an email saying that if Evans sent the refund they would accept it
      but up until the date I got the email they have not once attempted a refund .
       
       I have sent them a letter before court email
      I have even offered to have the full refund as a gift card just to get this sorted !
       
      I’m literally at the end of my tether and don’t know where to turn next !
       
      i suffer with mental health issues and this is affecting my health and I’d saved the money for a year to buy these clothes as I’m on a low income .

Hi,

 

I don't know if I'm posting this in the right place but I need help.

 

My daughters boyfriend has just received an eviction notice, stating the eviction will take pkace a week on Thursday. I'm currently sketchy on the details but it's all due to problems with housing benefits etc.

 

Hes had a nightmare of a couple f years, he was persuaded to take a 16 hour a week job because he was on DLA and could claim working tax credits, he also kept his housing benefit. He then lost his claim to DLA when he had to change to pip and so lost his working tax credits. He also lost his housing benefit but that was reinstated.

 

Currently he has a total income of £120 per week and is supposed to be paying towards his rent as his housing benefit doesn't cover it all.

 

Now he's buried his head in the sand, my daughter had just phoned me to say that he's being evicted and the eviction notice was delivered on Saturday morning.

 

He has tried to contact the council today to see if there is any way he can stop the eviction and they have said no not unless he pays all of the arrears.

I don't know if the amount they are wanting includes all of the costs that will have been added to the debt outstanding.

 

Is there anything at all that can be done to help him keep his home or are we looking at a lost cause?

Ok more information.

 

My daughters boyfriend didn't receive any court order, they didn't lodge a defence or attend the court because there was no knowledge of it, would it be possible to apply to the court to get another hearing?

 

I will post further information as I get it

Hi

 

I posted a similar thread in homelessness as I didn't know where to post.

 

I need help if at all possible.

 

My daughters boyfriend rents a flat from the local council. With problems with benefits being stopped and other problems he has run up rent arrears. He does now get housing benefit and pays towards the rent. He works 16 hours a week and has a weekly income of £120. This is the only money he gets per week.

 

On Saturday morning he received an eviction notice for a week on Thursday. He hasn't received anything else. I've asked him about court hearing documents and filing a defence but he's said he didn't receive anything else just the eviction Notice.

 

I haven't the figure of the arrears, but he's been in a mess since his DLA was stopped as he was supposed to transfer to pip and that claim was not allowed and he lost his working tax credits because he no longer got either DLA or pip.

 

I need to know if there is anything at all we can do? Can we try to go back to court to get some kind f arrangement or s it all too late, the problem is is that he will loose his job if he looses his flat and it becomes a nightmare of a situation. I wouldn't see him homeless, but I live 45 miles away from where he works and there is no way for him to get to work for 4 hrs a day if he has to move in with me.

 

Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated,

Hi

 

We would really need to know what was written in the eviction notice letter the council sent. (Check this link: https://www.gov.uk/council-housing-association-evictions)

 

Have they had any other previous letter from council about rent arrears?

 

Due to the issues you mention did they let they council housing know of these issues and was a Payment Plan set up to pay arrears? (if a payment plan was set up did they miss any payments?)

Hi thanks for your reply

 

I'm working semi blind n this matter at the moment, from what I've been told the eviction will take place a week on Thursday, it's all ready been to court although, there were no court papers sent to my daughters boyfriend.

 

I honestly don't know if there was a payment plan set up, from what I've been told he's been paying the part of the rent that he owes weekly

 

I've read the information on the link you sent, I'm going to have to talk to them in the morning, you might be able to tell I can't sleep I'm that worried.

 

Today when they phoned they were told that there was no negotiation now either pay what's owed or they were out.

 

I know the details are sketchy, but it's all I have to work on at the moment until I'm told more.

 

Is there anyway we can get it back to court to see if a repayment plan can be set up? Or is it now too late to do anything

Hi

 

I've talked to shelter this morning, and we are going to have to move fast. They said to contact civil legal advice as should be entitled to legal aid and they might be able to help.

 

I still need advice if anyone has any and the civil advice team can't help

Hello there. I've flagged your thread for the team to see if anyone can help.

 

I've also merged both your threads into a single one in the repos forum, it's best to keep to one thread per problem.

Thanks honeybee

 

I posted again because the first thread wasn't getting any replies.

 

Got a bit of an update

 

I finally managed to get through to my daughters boyfriend that there was a slight chance he might keep his home if he acted fast. He was about to go to work but managed to call the civil legal advice line.

 

The good news is that it looks like he's entitled to legal aid and was passed over to their legal team. They have given him a list of things that they need him to do, they also said because of his low income he should have applied for a disgressionary payment to help with his rent from the council and told him to apply for that now, also he should be able to get help in the form of tax credits and have given him a number to ring yo get help with that.

 

They also said that it was extremely likely that he would be seen by another judge and once he had the information from him they would submit the relevant documents into the court.

 

I' still need help to know what's going to happen, because if I have some idea then I can explain it to him and hopefully get him to actually get what needs to be done done

Hi, if the legal representative makes an application to court to have the eviction stopped - it is more than likely they will get it stopped due to the circumstances around his benefits claims/payments. He will have to make an offer to catch up with the arrears payments, but I'm pretty sure he'll be OK.

Hi honeybee.

 

The letter was a warrant of eviction, to take place next Thursday

 

I asked if he had the judgement letter from the court or any other documentation and all he's had is the warrant. I haven't seen it yet, but I assume that they are mostly all the same.

Hi Ell-enn

 

I'm just worrying that they won't be able to get it stopped, I went through similar 4 years ago and lost my house, but I tried to do it by myself and hopefully this time they might be able to stop it.

 

I'll keep everyone updated

I thought I had posted again on here as I'm starting to panic again... I don't know where it's gone but can't see it.

 

Ok, daughters boyfriend contacted the civil legal people, he's done exactly what they have to,d him to do, he's been to see the housing benefit people and has been awarded the disgressionary payment to help with his rent, he's contacted his utility companies, he was and has been paying back a debt owed to them. One is finished in November and one still has at least six months to go. He's talked to his boss to see if there is any way they can increase his hours but was told not at the moment yo that question.

 

Now the reason for my panic, is the papers still haven't been filed with the court. I'm aware the clock is ticking and it's getting very close to deadline midnight. So is there still time to stop this? If it's not stopped will we be able to get back in to get his stuff out after Thursday, or is there any way we can try yo file the papers at court before Thursday and be seen?

 

I did hope I would have more information by now or at least he would have a court date.

They have a court date... 10am tomorrow.

 

The civic legal people didn't get the forms to them in time so the cab helped fill in the forms and they have a time now.

 

Now I'm worried about somebody going in with him, he really doesn't do well in situations like this

Is there someone available from CAB to go with him ?

He's waiting for cab to call him back, they said they would phone him back today.

 

The hearing time and date was quicker than we expected, they said that this was the only one available before the eviction will take place....

 

I don't know enough to be able to help him though that's the problem.

Ok,

 

The cabs been on the phone, they don't send out people to represent them, they are only offering advice. They said that they will email a letter for him to take with him

 

This is bad isn't it

Well today didn't go as planned and it's been a total wash out.

 

We couldn't get a suspended possession order and so he needs to be out by Thursday at 1pm

 

It's been a complete cock up from start to finish. He's been paying the difference between his housing benefit about £35 per week religiously, yes he had arrears but thought that he was ok once his housing benefit was restarted. What they failed to tell him was that it wasn't backdated so he had arrears. Also added onto the arrears were all the legal costs etc which made the figures look worse than they were. The judge ignored the fact that the charges pushed up the arrears.

 

She also said that he had no way of affording the rent and that she could see that he was struggling to pay each month and didn't know how he could afford to pay the £35 per week that he's paying now to pay off the arrears as he was awarded the discretionary award that would make up his housing benefit. So the benefits would pay all of his rent and he pay the £35 per week that he was all ready paying

 

She also said that keeping his job was not good enough a reason to let him continue living in a flat that it was blatant that he could not afford.

 

So he's just lost his home and his only form of income in one fair swoop,

Hi honey bee

 

The judge didn't want to know, there was the evidence to prove that his total rent was covered until at least April and his payment record showed that he was paying £35 per week religiously. I can't help thinking just how unfair this has been

 

He was talked into taking a part time job, but lost his DLA when it became pip and because of it he lost his housing benefit because it also meant he lost his working tax credit because he was working to few hours to qualify. He was stuck in a part time job that he couldn't quit because he then would have had problems claiming jsa

 

It's been a vicious circle that ended today. What has me worried is that yes he can live here, he's not going to be homeless as such, but I live 45 miles away from where he works so it's going to be impossible for him to get to work, and the bus charges over £10 one way which means he's not going to be able to go to work.

 

Actually, would this be a good enough reason for him to claim jsa again? Or will they see it as intentionally quitting his job?
