    • So there's no tax payable anyway.... nothing to see here!  
    • are you actually going to benefit out of this at all?   I was slightly getting confused here earlier, and forgot you said you are the claimant because you are suing the defendant for the cost of a hire car that you personally haven't had to pay for ?    
    • I received PCN's from TFL and Southwark. 08/06/19 I spoke with Southwark regarding PCN's and thought it was sorted.   Didn't hear anything back until 17/01/20 when my car was taken by Marston EA. TFL & Marston say they sent letters but have no proof.   I emailed TFL (19th June) through their online portal and again, via email on (14th Nov 2019) < the email on 14th has been viewed 17 times but no reply. (so I have proof of contact, they don't) I asked them if they send via recoded delivery/signed for but they do not.   When my car was taken, I received a call from a friend saying it's on the back of a truck, outside his house (which is round the block from mine). I ran round there and the EA was aggressive, shouted at me and refused to show ID/why he had taken my car.   I complained to Marston who denied it but sent me some of the footage. I complained again through resolver.co.uk and Marston lied again. Then I sent ALL my info and evidence etc.   took a few weeks and called me saying sorry and taking full responsibly for their EA's aggressive behaviour etc. TFL are still refusing to comment.   Marston offered me £250 as a goodwill payment but obviously the pain and trauma causes - that doesn't cover it. The police were called when they took my car cause I was so distressed and having a panic attack etc.   I've requested the phone call recording where they accepted guilt and that they had handled everything badly, including lying about the video on Resovler. I feel like Marston know they've done wrong, but TFL still aren't in the know. (to my knowledge)   Also, I requested info from TFL via whatdotheyknow.com and TFL did a data protection breach by uploading my full details including address etc. to a public forum (and I didn't even ask anything specific about my case) so I feel like they did this out of spite/anger.   the www.whatdotheyknow.com team reprimanded them for this and advised me to complain. I also paid £800+ to retrieve my vehicle and I have completed the OOT which was denied. I tried to take it to court but when I tried to do the 'low income' thing but they wanted bank statements which I couldn't get... then corona happened.   I've downloaded/uploaded the ZIP file from Resolver convos.   Regarding the footage: my initial message to them, I made myself seem unaware and 'stupid'   they wrote a generic reply telling me that 'the footage is fine and the EA did nothing wrong' they can't uphold my complaint,   then once they sent that; I sent them the CIVEA rulebook and timestamps in the video to show that they were in the wrong and had further lied in their official response (which must be illegal)   when they received the in-depth response, I think they got scared, went away for a couple weeks   tried to get the nice sounding woman to call me up, say sorry and be really nice then offer me a measly £250.   She also tried to rush me into agreeing.

Good evening all!

A self employed, hard working friend who is a decent man, employing locally and is just a generally good bloke has made a schoolboy error in trusting without the legalities.

 

He is a commercial painter and decorator who has to take on huge contracts and suffer the cash flow problems associated therein!

 

In December, a 'manager' told him to proceed with extra work but it was not backed up in writing and there were no witnesses.

 

The company are now refusing to pay him for the extras which could force him and his family into insolvency.

 

Is there anything (apart from learning a massive lesson), that we can do to help this guy please?

 

Thank you

JT

There is no need for a written contract. A verbal agreement is perfectly binding. It simply a question of evidence.

 

Is your friend able to demonstrate the work that he did? What materials did he supply? Does he have receipts for this material? Who is the manager? Are we dealing with a company somewhere? If you tell us the whole story without too much narrative but in a bullet pointed chronology then maybe we can start to understand the problem.

I will find out but since writing, the manager has agreed to pay half! interesting!!

Half of the agreed sum represents what value?

 

You should properly find out much more about it before your friend accepts the payment. If it is a substantial amount, then even that acceptance of half the amount is probably not legally binding and it could well be worth chasing up the other half.

 

Find out as much as you can quickly and get back to us.

Just spoken to him.

 

He has documented everything that was asked of him and has evidence of everything he did!

Then please set out the story or better still get him to come here and do it.

 

Playing Chinese whispers on an Internet forum is pretty gruelling work

OK. See how he feels in the morning.

 

How much is at stake, as a matter of interest?
