    • Thank you for the above Andy. I’ve not stated to Shoosmiths that I have not signed the agreement, however at the time I didn’t really understand the agreement, it was just put in from of me, and told to sign. I did also sign a document saying it did not require legal representation.   What would you suggest as my next steps? 
    • Barclays have finally responded to my friend on this asking for  Date of birth, all previous addresses, any former names and account numbers she has.   I don’t think my friend included a council tax bill (I did when I sent my Dad’s DSAR to Barclays last week!).   Do they need all this info?
    • There is no statutory provision requiring a witness in these circumstances to be independent. However the purpose of having a witness is so that they can provide unbiased evidence of what was signed and by whom, if required in the future. Therefore a witness should be independent and it is best practice to interpret this widely. A witness should not be the signatory’s spouse or partner or a family member, and should not have a personal interest in the provisions of the document. Case law has confirmed that a party to the document cannot act as a witness to another party’s signature. It is advisable that a witness is aged eighteen or over.   More importantly ...One of the distinguishing factors about the execution of a deed as compared to a contract is that a deed must be “delivered”. Delivery fixes the date from which the executing party is bound by the deed, and once delivered, a deed is irrevocable in the absence of an express right of revocation. At common law, a deed is delivered when a party expresses an intention to be bound by the deed, even if it retains possession of the document.   The best way to deal with delivery of a deed is to have clear wording in the document setting out that the deed will be delivered on the date appearing at the head of the document. Where a deed is executed by a company, legislation provides that it is presumed to be delivered on execution, unless a contrary intention is proved. There is no such presumption for execution by an individual. Clear wording in the document confirming the position on delivery will avoid confusion and unintended consequences.   https://www.osborneclarke.com/insights/signed-sealed-delivered-execution-of-deeds-and-documents-and-how-it-might-go-wrong/

    • This is a bit of a lengthy one but I’ll summerise best as possible.
       
      THIS IS HOW THE PHONECALL WENT 
       
      I was contacted by future comms by phone, they stated that they could beat any phone contract I have , (I am a limited company but just myself that needs a business phone and I am the only worker) 
      I told future comms my deal, £110 per month with a phone and a virtual landline, they confirmed that they could beat that, £90 per month with a phone , virtual landline  they also confirmed they would pay Vodafone (previous provider) the termination fee. As I am in business, naturally I was open to making a deal. So we proceeded. 
      Future comms then revealed that the contract would be with PLAN.COM and the airtime would be provided by 02, I instantly told them that this would break the deal as I have poor 02 signal in the house where I live as my partner is on 02 and constantly complaining about bad signal
      the salesman assured me he would send a signal booster box out with the phone so I would have perfect signal.
      so far so good.....
      i then explained this is the only mobile phone I use for business and pleasure, so therefore I didn’t want any disconnection time in the slightest between the switchover from Vodafone to 02
      the salesman then confirmed that the existing phone would only be disconnected once the new phone was switched on.
      so far so good....

HXCPM/Gladstones ANPR PCN Claimform - didnt buy ticket within 10 mins - Vulcans Lane CP, Workington, Cumbria

wonder if they've dropped themselves in it by referring to capturing CCTV images of "Bystanders" who may just be walking through the car park or past the entrance? The max 10 minutes to pay on the signs might not stack up either.

They have not proved their ten minute regulation as they have not stated your time of arrival nor the time you paid [unless you paid on leaving].

 

 

The NTK {though not called that}is worded incorrectly. The keeper is not REQUIRED to pay the charge they should be INVITED to pay, or inform the creditor of the name of the driver.

They would be very silly to do court they could fail on several points, from paperwork to signage, NTK (Not) looks non compliant as indicated by lookedinforinfo.

Out of interest,

what time have they stated you entered and left the land (or time frame)

- and which parking period did you subsequently pay for?

 

Have they stated how many minutes after you entered the land you then purchased a ticket?

 

Minor points in the greater scheme of things, but would be useful to help with context.

OK sign on left refers to other signage to create a contract so either it is an invitation to treat and that menas you dont have to accept what is offered by the other signs or it is a contract and there is no mention of paying anyone £100 for any reason.

 

The actual contract is only fromed when you feed the meter so the terms on the ticket machine are those that mean anything.

As they dont metion charging you £100 for any reason you cant be lawfully charged for any breach

 

Specifially what they say about the 10 minute grace period isnt a contractual term, that would apply regardless so you cant actually breach a condition of acceptance to their ATA.

It is like when car parks used to display signs saying that you have to display your tax disk to remain there - utter cobblers as there is case law that says otherwise and like the old "driver seen leaving site" ticket, makes the whole contract void if you choose not to be bound by its terms and that is not the prerogative of the parking co.

 

agree with shamrocker though, post up your entry and exit times so we know how much of a difference there is

Thanks all for the replies, and thanks Mrs O'Frog for the images.

I've been working away and returned to a third letter.

I've attached all three and hopefully I've finally got the hang of blocking out ALL my personal details!

Sorry dx100uk!

 

The letter states I arrived at 15.27 and left at 22.46.

I paid £4 which covered me for 12 hours.

It was dark and raining heavily (no excuse) so I didn't stand and read the signs.

I only had £3 in change so went off to get another pound.

 

I was delayed in the local theatre cafe as there was no one serving.

I gave up and went into the theatre and borrowed £1 from one of my colleagues.

This obviously took more than 10 minutes.

I went back and paid the £4, giving me 12 hours of parking time.

 

At present I cannot find the ticket, which is annoying as I always keep my tickets for expense claims.

But, as the charge letter clearly states the charge is for failing to display a ticket within 10 minutes, they are not claiming that I didn't pay for parking.

so no breach of a specific contratual term because the 10 minute grace period is mandatory as a MINIMUM, it isnt an offer of 10 minutes free parking otherwise they have to give you 20 minutes including the grace period ( you wnt to loo for change after your free 10 minutes for example)

 

All of these parking co's amke their money from inventing unfair reasons to clobber you, the meter money goes to the landowner so they need to bill people for invented breaches to earn a crust.

I received a 'letter before claim' from Gladstones on March 6th 2019.

I did not respond and have now received a letter from County Court Business Centre asking for £239.

 

I am not willing to pay this as I feel I paid for 12 hours parking and the dispute over not paying in the first 10 minutes unreasonable.

I understand I shouldn't ignore the court letter, but can anyone recommend how I should proceed.

I'm happy to go to court.

 

Thanks in advance.

the first thing to do is acknowledge the claim.

You can do this my logging on to moneyclaim.gov.uk and following the instructions.

 

If you can post up their particulars of claim so we can comment as usually they are so lacking in detail you will have half of your response done for you.

 

half of their claim is for money that cant be owed if they are suing you as  the keeper but tey normally fail to mention in what capacity they are claiming you are liable and prefer to muddle the driver and keeper together when they are VERY separate in law

 

dont file a defence yet, you have another fortnight at least to do that and you can spend some of that timeusefuly by sending them a CPR 31.14 request for documents and give them 14 days to respond.

That will still give you some time to put in your defence when they fail to respond.

 

What you want to see in the CPR 31.14 is  sight of the contract with the landowner that assigns them the right to enter into contracts wiht the public and to make civil claims in their own name.

 

You also want to see the planning permission granted for their cameras and signage.

Now there are 2 separate laws that apply for the cameras and signs so let them be the ones to work out which they have got if any.

 

If they dont respond within the 14 days you give them you can state that you dont believe they have the necessary permissions and then cant form contracts and so no locus standi or cause for action

I've attached the court letter. It states I agreed to pay within 28 days but I have had made no contact with the company whatsoever. I paid £4 for 12 hours parking at around 15.45 and left at 22.46. The only rule of theirs I have contravened is taking more than 10 minutes to pay after arriving. They have made no loss.

 

 

And here is the original PCN. It clearly states that the charge is failing to purchase a pay and display ticket within the 10 minute grace period. 

 

 

Am I right in presuming that the 10 minute grace period contravention indicates that they know I've paid? As I didn't know there was a problem on the night, I didn't keep the ticket, but if they were claiming I hadn't paid at all, would that be stated in the Contravention  of Terms or Conditions box?

 

Just another detail, in the particulars it states the car park is 'Vulcans Lane Work'. That should read 'Workington'.

with regard to the lack of a full address,

is there another Vulcans Lane anywhere? 

If not then they have identified the land.

 

Where this becomes important would be for example a parking co saying you were at  Sainsburys, London. 

Now that doesn't identify any particular place and saying  Smith St london when the car park you were in was Jones St, about half a mile away from their named location would also lose them their claim as again it doesn't identify the land.

 

in more than 1 case we have seen  a parking co has been responsible for a small area in front of some shops and other companies responsible for their neighbours

 

so even getting Smith St righ wouldnt identify the land as there would be confusion as to which land and who has the authority to manage.

 

detail is crucial so you can deny their claim as you DID purchase so no cause for action.

If they were claiming for an overstay or incorrectly placing your ticket then they should say that is the cause for action.

they can change this later  when you hammer this point home but it will cost them another £50.

 

In the meanwhile you will be sending them (via Gladstones) a CPR 31.14 request for documents to have sight of their contract with the landowner that assigns the right to enter into contract with the public and to make civil claims in their own name and also for proof of planning permission for their cameras and signage ( 2 different planning laws)

 

so if they refer to 1 permission you ask the council exactly what was granted)
