    • So I see that you are mixing and matching your sources of help. This is really not a good idea and too many cooks spoiling the broth springs to mind. We are putting in quite a lot of work here try to help you and if you then go ahead and take advice from elsewhere it can put us into difficulty because advice might clash or even conflict. Of course no problem at all, you using Which or anywhere else – but I think you ought to decide where you are going and stick with it
    • Yes I think you should simply go ahead and apply for a warrant and execute it. In terms of further damages for distress, I agree that it is a continuing breach but on the other hand you have had damages for distress up until X X date (I can't remember when) so you are now applying for damages for distress from that date. I think probably £200 is a reasonable figure. I certainly agree that the continuation of their breach tends to compound their responsibility but we aren't really trying to get money out of them, we are trying to prove a point. Up to you – but I would have thought that £200 would be reasonable. Don't forget that when we finally get the information we need and they eventually put their hands up to their error, you will be looking at something quite substantially more and there will be the further question of the inaccurate processing of your data which itself is a serious matter in addition to the damage which it has caused.  
    • Well paying nothing would obviously appeal!   Yeah one was definitely 1990' as it was previously the Egg card and other I think was also 90's but could have been 2000's
    • Who says you have to pay anything? When were the cards taken out..very pre 2000 even 1990's i bet!
    • I think now is the time to assemble a list of all the losses which have been incurred as a result of this. So were talking about the wasted money on the lease, the cost of repairs – and any ancillary expenses associated with alternative transport. Of course it would be a prudent thing to just double check the terms and conditions so that we don't end up with egg on our faces. But if everything pans out then the chances of success, if you decide to make a County Court claim, are extremely high

    • Hi @BankFodder
      Sorry for only updating you now, but after your guidance with submitting the claim it was pretty straight forward and I didn't want to unnecessarily waste your time. Especially with this guide you wrote here, so many thanks for that
      So I issued the claim on day 15 and they requested more time to respond.
      They took until the last day to respond and denied the claim, unsurprisingly saying my contract was with Packlink and not with them.
       
      I opted for mediation, and it played out very similarly to other people's experiences.
       
      In the first call I outlined my case, and I referred to the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 as the reason to why I do in fact have a contract with them. 
       
      In the second call the mediator came back with an offer of the full amount of the phone and postage £146.93, but not the court costs. I said I was not willing to accept this and the mediator came across as a bit irritated that I would not accept this and said I should be flexible. I insisted that the law was on my side and I was willing to take them to court. The mediator went back to Hermes with what I said.
       
      In the third call the mediator said that they would offer the full amount. However, he said that Hermes still thought that I should have taken the case against Packlink instead, and that they would try to recover the court costs themselves from Packlink.
       
      To be fair to them, if Packlink wasn't based in Spain I would've made the claim against them instead. But since they are overseas and the law lets me take action against Hermes directly, it's the best way of trying to recover the money.
       
      So this is a great win. Thank you so much for your help and all of the resources available on this site. It has helped me so much especially as someone who does not know anything about making money claims.
       
      Many thanks, stay safe and have a good Christmas!

Environment Agency announces new charges for boat registrations

 

The Environment Agency will increase the cost of boat registrations on its waterways from 2019 to help ensure a sustainable service for thousands of boat users.

 

The new charges for 2019-21 will be invested in waterways enjoyed by around 29,000 boat users, helping to meet the shortfall between the cost of running the service and the income currently generated from annual boat registrations.
