    • Hi    another quick update   Just had my Mediation call and advised them that I do not have enough information from PRA to continue with the mediation.   The mediator relayed that  PRA confirmed they have sent me the agreement and statement and that PRA believe this is enough to determine that this is my debt.   PRA confirmed that they do not have the "default notice" but believe the information they provided is enough for the court   Now I will just wait for the court process to initiate and in the meantime i will continue to work on my statement   thanks    
    • Hi all,   just checked my credit report on Credit Karma, and I’ve had a search from ‘Lexusnexus’. do I need to be concerned? Since they are a data mining company from the states, is this the precursor to potential legal action?   H

    • Hi,   Thanks for your reply.   Firstly I asked several times for a refund closer to the time I enrolled on the course and was told I could not have one due to the center paying for the course upfront. I did make it very clear that I was struggling with the course, however due to the center not being open when I could attend that I would not be able to finish it, also that due a change in job role I would be unable to make days when the center was open. However given that the center advertised several times it would be open late and on a weekend this was not honoured several times and yes I have a detailed log of this.    The entire cost of the course was over £3700 - I can get back to you with the exact amount once I am home as I have kept the recites   There was also an incident with the Sage course due to it having to be studied within the classroom - when I was able to get into the venue the package was not working and also the obvious reason for the center being closed.   The course was conducted via mixed methods, however when trying to complete the training online their system was not working, so could not be accessed whilst I was trying to study at home. I did phone the center about this at the time, however this was not remedied.   Thanks
    • First of all you should understand that this is going to be difficult – partly because you have left it so long, partly because of their franchise system it is very difficult to pin them down and finally because you have already said yourself that some of the reason for not completing the course is because of your own mental/emotional state. Your poor health at the time was very unfortunate – and I'm very sorry about that – but that is not something that you will be able to rely upon if you attempt to recover any money. In fact it would be in your best interests not to refer to this. Have you already brought this up with them? Could you please tell us how much the entire course cost. Also, you will need to give a fairly detailed chronology of the listed class times and the times that they were closed without giving you notice. We need to understand what impact these are notified closures had upon the total amount of allocated time. Was the course conducted mostly online or was it conducted with face-to-face contact at their classrooms?

Hi

received a windscreen ticket from UKPC for parking on the road.

In a residential estate, but on a road, not a car park.

 

No markings, yellow lines on the road and wasn't blocking anyone or any entrances.

A not very obvious sign parallel to the road saying "No Unauthorised Parking" which looked like they were for the parking bays, but on closer inspection after receiving the ticket say 'no roadway' parking in very small letters.

 

They have photos showing car with a blurry sign in the background on other side of the road, plus a close up photo, taken at an extreme upwards angle (blurry, can't really read what it says - my own photo is much better)

 

Considering whether its worth an appeal or not, any help appreciated.

 

Thanks

Do not appeal, or you might identify yourself as the driver, and that is a very bad idea.


We could do with some help from you.

Hi and welcome to CAG.

 

I have looked on Googlespy (Street View) and there is one sign at the entrance to the estate but that is on Samas Way and is after the entrance to Alcock Crescent so by assumption, this sign suggests one area (Samas Way) is the permit holder part only.

 

Travelling around the site, I spotted 11 other signs (possibly more than I could see) which had individual terms on them however, the main condition is "No unauthorised parking" . This is an absolute term so you cannot breach a term that forbids parking. This is trespass only and only the landowner can take action, not UKPC.

 

I can't understand why UKPC have not mentioned PoFA. Can you post up the ticket, suitably redacted of all identifiable information where we can see what is what.

Thanks, that is exactly what the driver thought - i.e. restrictions were for space beyond sign in Samas.

 

The car was reversed round the corner from the Samas way entrance, into Alcock Crescent, and then parked a little way back from the corner, on the right hand side of Alcock Crescent as you drive into it (or left if you reverse into it as was the case), opposite the grassy area before the parking spaces.

 

Tickets are at the following URL (I can't post direct as don't have 10 posts.)

I have also attached some photos. One from UKPC showing car with sign in the background and one from UKPC of the sign saying no roadway parking. UKPC have other photos of just the car

 

I haev also attached my own photos of the entrance to the estate, the entrance to the road where the car was parked (Alcock Crescent) with an arrow indicating its placement. Also my own photo of the sign.

As UKPC have not followed the guidelines set by the BPA in that it's members should use PoFA when chasing tickets, there can be no keeper liability. Only the driver can be chased and you are under no obligation to name them. Anybody with their own insurance can drive your car with your permission although under third party rules only.

 

I would wait until the Notice to Keeper arrives and see what they say. If they then start relying on PoFA, they would be on a sticky wicket (IMO) as the shouldn't be able to issue tickets under one law then chase under another.

 

The NtK should arrive (if PoFA is used) between 29 and 56 days after the issuance of the ticket. If it arrives too early or too late then they are stuffed.

from what you say they are stuffed for several reason including prohibitive signage, lack of relevant signage ( signs on the other side of the road dont apply) and so on. their NTK will also contain errors so another stick to beat them with.

 

That is why we say wait for the NTK, appeal now and you throw away a considerabel protection of the law from greedy gits who cnat do their jobs properly

An update - UKPC have given up.

 

 Keeper followed the advice on MSE and appealed as the keeper on day 25.  UKPC issued a late and POFA non-complaint NTK on day 59.  They then failed to respond or issue a POPLA code within 35 days of the initial appeal (as the BPA Code of Practice sets out they must).  So keeper complained to the BPA and DVLA.  Then 2 days later UKPC cancelled the charge as a 'gesture of goodwill'.

Keeper can sue them for breach of the GDPR. If it were me I would but that takes time and energy that most people dont have.

Good that they saw sense eventually even if it needed their trade association to prod them. UKPC are like CEL, they ignore or break the law but no meaningful sanctions are applied to them. Neither should be still in business
