    • Hi, I bought a car from Citroen dealer 'Robins and Day' on 21/06/2019, it was C4 grand piccasso 2016 with only 4400 miles on the dashboard. The caar started giving trouble every morning showing "gearbox fault, repair needed'. Its only started happening in the morning when weather satrted getting cloder. When I switch on the engine in the morning it is fine but as soon as I start reversing the car  then gearrrbox gets stuck on reverse gear which locks everything, unable to switch on or push the car back to a parking position to keep the road clear. Last thuursday morrning gearbox got stuck while reversing infront of a school, it was verry stressful be causing one mile of traffic.   Got the car recovered by RAC and taken to the dealer, diagonosis was booked for Friday the 18th october 7:30 am but they were not giving me any update until today afternoon that actuator may be broken. They now want to get authorisation from the extended warranty department of their headoffice, said once parts is ordered it will take upto 3 to 4 days.   I am a cab driver and I have already lost 7 days and I assume they are going to take another 5 days, in total around 2 weeks. They are taking too long because I have compait to ther headoffifor ruude and unproffessional service.   Can I claim my loss of earnings against this dealer?   Should I start the process to reject the car now as it is still within 6 months from the date of purchase?   I have been to the same dealer twice for other fault like dashboard touch screen getting stuck , also front and rear window heater geting activated even if I  dont touch the buttons. 2nd issues was car was making noise, they told me it was a bracket broken at the front pannel of the car due to someone hit the car ( it was someone hit the car in the parking lot, and brrren the front ffog light's trim) which they charge 200 ponds for replaciing the bracket, but problems still there.   I will appreciate foryour kind advice. Thanks in advance.      
    • Go on holiday with it Dump the iva (it should be ended by now anyway max duration is 5yrs!!)   Whos it with?? Sounds like youve been had blind!!   Get a list of the debts up Send everyone a CCA request!   Bet 90% you dont even owe
    • Yes no problem remember to do a witness statement for your partner or anyone else that was there if you intend to rely on their evidence or wish them to be able to speak at a hearing  will be posted within the hour cheers
    • Hi DX100uk   Thanks for your message and also that you remembered my issues   I am still in iva but not paid them for 3 months.   After my redundancy in Mar I had to pay them 18.5k and thought I was close to ffs but they advised that due to redundancy payment treated as windfall (lol) they were changing the due amount from 81% to 100%   I did find another job after 6 weeks but am on probation for 6 months but its not going well as I am stressed from iva and new job.   The doctor has signed me off for 2 weeks with anxiety & referred me to a councillor, also written a letter for me to fwd to iva asking they allow me to settle early.   So far my original debts were 74k but proven debt was 61.5k    With my payments to date (including redundancy) I have paid in 54k and my girlfriends family are so worried about me they are offering 11k as gift for ffs   Payplan were going to terminate my iva and said it could well result in bankruptcy ( I have a flat with a mortgage) but equity of about 80k which I am worried they will go after   I spoke to pp today telling them how stressful this all was and it may well be that I don't pass my probation ( I am 59 btw so was lucky to find a job so quickly) Sorry to burden you with all this but I always respect your advice and knowledge, and PP have worried me by going for the 100% and bankruptcy warning   Thanks in advance

Recommended Posts

Hi there

 

i have a letter before action from Gladstones Solicitors regarding a PCN,

which happened 16th October 2017 outside a sandwich shop,

this was the only parking spot available and i was having dizzy spells and needed to eat.

 

When i came out of the sandwich shop and noticed someone taking pics of my vehicle,

i approached them to explain the situation but they simply ignored me.

The parking restrictions were not clearly displayed.

 

They have given me 30 days to respond from the date of the letter

- 15th November 2018 and the 30 days fall on Saturday 15th December 2018.

 

I would really appreciate some advice on this as a matter of urgency.

 

 

Thanks in advance,

Roland

It is just another threatogram but I would be tempted to respond and tell them that you know that they are useless as you have just read about yet another magnificent failure to attend court over a claim in Romford resulting in a loss of money for their clients. Ask them why dont they just shut up and send you £60 to avoid the humiliation later, it will be cheaper for their clients that way.

 

 

I really do mean it. Copy the letter to the parking co and make sure that you put cc Euro Parking on the gladstones letter so they cnat just bin it and tell porkies to their client

Many thanks,

Roland

send exactly as written in my post #8 above from "you know they are useless" to the end of the paragraph.

 

It really is that simple. The point of this is they have just had another loss at court so you are letting them know you will happily dish out some more of that. You are telling the parking co this beacuse Gladstones charge them money for no action and that they will merely be paying for bad advice as well as your costs if they take the advice of the owners of the IPC who happen to be the same people

from what you say about the place there is little chance that the claim will succeed.

The lack of signage, the lack of mitigation by the person taking the pictures ( telling you to read the signs or move the vehicle for example) and probably no authority to offer contract in the first place.

 

Have you still got the paperwork they originally sent?

Is the site near to you and can you get there and take some pictures or at least give us the exact location so we can have a look on goggleyes.

 

As for why you were there- irrelevant, mentioning it will could be damaging, you have either been offered a contract to park there or you havent.

opps internet went

 

the issue is that IF they do issue a claim through Northants bulk

then what they will do is use that email ad to file their witness statement at 1 min before the deadline

thus effectively nulling anything you put.

 

send them an additional email

that the address used is NOT monitored 24/7 and is NOT to be used to file ANY legal documents now or in the future and it is now closed.

 

WISE UP!!

it doesnt matter whose email it is you dont use email. They have a habit of emailing court documents at midnight on the day of a hearing and then claiming thye delivered them in good time.

 

We keep telling people to read a number of threads before any action and this is one of the reasons why.

 

In theory they could serve a summons vis email as long as the court agrees to this. I have done it to a large corporation who has a "problem" with their post room and claims they dotn receive stuff on a regular basis.

they are claiming breach of contract but dont actually state in what capacity they are suing you as they say driver/keeper.

The only certainty they have is that you were the keeper at the time.

 

We haven't seen the ticket they issued at the time

( what? they didn't issue one then they need to show their operative is either a n employee or has registered themselves as data processors with the ICO- that wont have happened) or the NTK.

 

We need to know when it was sent and any communicaton you have had with them as you dotn emntion any until your email response to their lba.

 

get the CPR 31.14 sent off now and you will then have enough time to use their non compliance against them in your outline defence

so no contract or planning consent reference? 

that is more ammunition to you as you can state that you do not belive they have the necessary permissions as they have failed to produce them.

 

The signs saying patrons only is a 2 edged sword, if you arent a patron you are a trespasser and that is nowt to do with ECP and if you were a customer then the rest of the terms are of little consequence as you have fulfilled the important bit.

 

the other points are really and rather than or so the furhter you get down that list of dos and donts the less importance they have

so they avoid actually showing they have a contract to be there in the first place.

 

Now you can sue this against them  by stating that they have failed to produce a contract with the landowner that assigns them the right to enter into contracts with the public and to make civil claims in their own name so you do not believe they have " locus standi" in this matter.

 

You further believe that they failed to get consent for their signage under the Town and Country Planning Act 2007  and thus the signs offering terms are there illegally.

 

Therefore it is not possible to enter into a criminal compact so there was no contract between the claimant and the defendant.

 

If you have time you add thsi to your outline defence that has to be back within the 33 days.

If you have alreday put in an outline defence you use this as the opening gambit to your witness statement as it will force them to either show the contract or drop the claim/lose the claim.

 

Gladstones are trying to do this on the cheap because to actually put some effort into this would be financial suicide. That is why they usually drop a well defended claim before the hearing or they lose their client a small fortune in costs.

Thank you ericsbrother for getting back to me, interesting to know that they have no contact with the landowner.... I haven't filed the defence yet which is due next week and i do need some guidance in putting one together, would appreciate it, thanks.
