    • Mine does have a date on top right - 18th March. 
    • Hi there , Received a letter from gobal arrow 2nd of may stating they handed my debt to shoosmiths solicitors for collection. The account was opened 2005 with mbna and defaulted i think 2008 when made unemployed  Balance £2200.I payed a few token payments for a while to various DCAs but hen stopped 2012/13 trying to track for sure.with bank .They sent a second letter 22may with 7 day countdown saying there going legal if arrangement not made.If checked my credit file and theres no defaults present or dates so its dropped off but i don t know when. My credit file has been excellent for the last 5 years with every payment to date now afraid of a reset.Any advice as i am unsure how to approach this .Thanks 
    • The company is gone,so like a deceased person who has capacity for OOT?
    • Could an out of time statement create a liability?   Surely at the moment they are pursuing the OP as director of the now dissolved company and they can only go after company assets. if the company is gone, the OP isn’t a director: so in what capacity do they plan to make an OOT statement? They aren’t a director anymore.   Would it be better to not make the OOT, and say “the company has gone, there are no assets remaining to enforce against, and any personal assets I have aren’t subject to any warrant of control you may have for company assets”
    • I hope you won't think I'm being too tough if I say that you've been here since 2012 and so you must know your rights under the Consumer Rights Act which are that if a fault manifests itself within the first 30 days then you are in principle entitled to a refund or a replacement. You would also be aware that you have to assert this right so I'm pleased to say that you will already have made sure that the shop has evidence that you did come to them on day 29 and tried to assert your right. On that basis it is simply a question of pushing the issue and if necessary taking legal action to enforce the right. Also, you've been here since 2012 so I'm not too sure why you haven't told us who the dealer is – maybe you would do that now. Also, should be aware that the responsibility/liability lies with the dealer and has nothing to do with the manufacturer regardless of what any document says. Are we on the same page here? By the way, I have no idea why you should be concerning yourself with GDPR. This is an extremely minor issue and I would have thought that you would be concerned with getting your telephone sorted out.

    • 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....

    • The FSA has announced large fines against DB UK Bank Limited (trading as DB Mortgages) - DeutscheBank and also against Redstone for their unfair treatment of their customers.
      Please see the links below for summaries and full details from the FSA website.
      It is now completely clear that any arrears charges which exceed actual administrative costs are unfair and therefore unlawful.
      Furthemore, irresponsible lending practices are also unfair and unlawful.
      Additionally there are other unfair practices including unarranged counsellor visits - even if they have been attempted.
      You are entitled to refuse counsellor visits and not incur any charges.
      Any charges for counsellor visits must not seek to make profits. The cost of the visits must be passed on to you at cost price.
      We are hearing stories of people being charged for counsellor visits for which there is no evidence that they were even attempted.
      It is clear that some mortgage lenders are trying to cheat you out of your money.
      You should ascertain how much has been taken from you and claim it back. The chances of winning are better than 90%. It is highly likely that the lender will attempt to avoid court action and offer you back your money.
      However, you should ensure that you receive a proper rate of interest and this means that you should be seeking at least restitutionary damages - which would be much higher than the statutory 8%.
      Furthermore, you should assess whether the paying of demands for unlawful excessive charges has also out you further into arrears and if this has caused you further penalties in terms of extra interest or any other prejudice. This should be claimed as well.
      If excessive unlawful charges have resulted in your credit file being affected, then you should take this into account also when working out exactly what you want by way of remedy from the lender.
      You should consult others on these forums when considering any offer.
      You must not make any complaint through the Ombudsman. your time will be wasted, you will wait up to 2 yrs and there will be a minimal 8% award of interest and no account will be taken of any other damage you have suffered.
      You must make your complaint through the County Court for a rapid and effective remedy.

CEL PCN - Entrance Road Nursery Car Park Kingsford way E6 5YA

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,


Hoping you are all well. 

 

Just received a letter for PCN.

My partner was driving at this time.

She was picking up our daughter from a nursery.

 

The location where PCN was issued is within the ground of the nursery.

Unfortunately she over stayed around 18 minutes without paying.

No ticket was attached to the vehicle at the time. 

 

She was advised by the nursery that they do not ticket the car if it's under 10 minutes, however did this time as it was longer.

 

Should we settle the cost of 60 quid?

 

Thanks for any advice.

Hi.

 

We need the information from the forum sticky in order to advise you please.

to be honest you should know what to do by now, you have collected enough of them before and been told just about all of the permutations

 

if it is ticket slapped on the vehicle you do nothing for the moment but next time you are there you photograph the entrance to the land from the public highway and all of the signage in the parking area.

 

If it was the first  letter through the post then it has failed miserably to fulfil any of the requirements of the POFA so no-one owes them a penny

 

I would ask the nursery whether they hve done a DBS check on the bod taking the details as they havent used ANPR as there are no pictures on the NTK.

 

om goggleyes there is no signage other than a small one saying you might be clamped so no contract.

That is from May 2018 so anything newe wont appear on the pictures which is good news for you as you can use the screen shots to cast doubt on their story.

 

also to be picky there isnt a car park on Tollgate rd, it is in Kingsford way

 

CEL tell lies

Thanks Eric, I agree with you and I kind of understand it, but I am always paranoid I will do something incorrect and mess  it up... 

 

This is the first letter I received and no ticket was slapped on the car at the time of event.

 

You are right about google, there is no signage on the pictures, however there are 100% signs now inside that parking courtyard.

 

I will stop by the nursery myself next week I take my daughter and speak to the staff.

 

You are also right about car park being on Kingsford Way, should have made it more clearer. 

 

Many thanks

but CEL say it is Tollgate rd.

Now that is the address for the nursery but does that accurately identify the land?

 

This moot point  wont win you the war but show CEL have been slapdash elsewhere and the rest of what they say this is true will carry little weight and small things like this just add to the weight of your arguments.

Pictures of signs and ANPR system please.

You are correct, that post code and the address on letter comes up as a main road entrance.

 

The car park is located at the back from the main road that you enter via Kingsford Way.

 

I will drive up there right now to get some pictures and will post shortly. 

 

Thanks again!

Hi, please find attached images of the car park and entrance from the road.

 

One thing that I noted is that upon entering the car park the signs on wall are CEL, however inside the actual car park it is from company called StarPark.

 

Please also see ANPR camera in the middle of the car park.

 

Thanks

the companies often have this odd arrangement but they are not even run  y the same people but the actual peopel who run them are good frienrds and the peopel named on the Companies House registration are just front men. Totally illegal but no-one polices this so it is more common than it should be.

 

This means that CEL cant enforce on behalf of a third party. This is  somehting they know and tend to go quiet when they sue people and this is raised as part of a defence.

 

also note that the signon the entrance is an "invitation to treat" so that menas you can ignore the other signs anyway. As for only paying by phone- unfair contract.

 

Also if Starpark are the service provider it would be unlawful for CEL to obtain your keeper details from the DVLA as they have no  reasonable cause to do so.

 

You need to write to the DVLA and ask then is Starpark Ltd are permitted automated access under the KADOE agreement and if they are not then you complain that CEL are breaching their agreement because they are working solely for soemone who has no authority to have your details.

 

Get on with this now and when you get a response from the DVLA tell us and we will probably advise a compaint to the ICO.

 

Also ask the local council if anyione has planning permission for the cameras and signage

Wow, it amazes me how knowledgeable you are good sir. All of those points are valid. Thank you!

 

I will get the letter posted out to DVLA today. Can you please advise if below letter sounds ok? 

------

"My name & address

 

To whom it may concern

 

I write to request that DVLA provide me with details and reason of who and why enquires have been made on my vehicle during period of February 1st 2019 to March 18th 2019.

 

Further to above, can you please advise if Starpark LTD are permitted to receive automated access under KADOE agreement?

 

My vehicle details are: ------- I also attach a V5C document to prove my ownership of the vehicle."

-----

I have also found an address for local council (Newham) that I am planning to write to - any advise on below too please? I am planning to also include the pictures for the specific area (car park)

 

My name & address

 

To whom it may concern

 

Can you please provide planning permission for the cameras and signage at below address:

 

Car Park at 218 Tollgate Road, London, E6 5YA (in specific the car park as you enter Kingsford Way) 

 

This is required for proof purposes on my current PCN case. 

 

Many thanks

 

**EDIT** Is this also correct address to send into DVLA?

dont tell the council why you want the info,

they are less likely to want to say anything but be clear they are ANPR cameras as these are different to ordinary CCTV cameras as far as consent goes.

 

DVLA address leed looking up.

 

You ask who and when and what was the reason given. you then ask is Star park have access to the KADOE system as they are 2 separate things

 

This is in other posts so start reading more.....

Good morning Eric,

 

Hoping all is well.

 

I have sent the letters to both DVLA and Newham Council on 21st of March. It has been almost 2 weeks, but have had no reply. Should I be worried or try and resend again? 

 

Many thanks

give the council a ring and remind them.

the DVLA have a specific office that delas with such requests and they ahve a habit of ignoring all correspondence that arrives at the wrong postcode and this seems to be a ploy to avoid having to both answer your query and produce statistics that show they are abetting unlawful activity

Hi CAG!

 

Hoping you all had a great Easter.

 

Update:

Having sent 2x letters to both DVLA and Newham Council I had no response yet.

 

I spoke with Newham Council planning department, they had told me that they are not able to provide any details in regards to the ANPR Camera and it must be put in writing (which I did).

Same with DVLA, but I am getting no responses.

 

Both letters 2nd time were sent as signed for and they had been accepted.

Is there anything else I can do? 

 

I have returned home from being week away and found another letter from CEL that I put aside with other letters for time being. 

 

Any suggestions are appreciated! 

 

Thank you.

I would approach DVLA in 2 stages.

 

Stage 1 - email subjectaccess.requests@dvla.gov.uk with the request for who, when and why obtained your details. That normally gets a reasonably speedy response. Once you have that response it will determine what stage 2 needs to be.

 

They only have certain procedures listed to follow, so if you include two types of question in one letter it can confuse them as free thinking is not encouraged.

Thank you, I will try sending an email.

I have actually sent 2 separate letters as suggested by Eric.

No reply to either letter.

TBH your phrasing of what you want from the council isnt that clear. You need to ask them if planning permission has been granted under the 2007 Act for the signage and cameras at.......

Your version looks like you are vaguely asking for planning permission to put cameras up!

Now with the DVLA you give your personal and vehicle detaisl and ask WHO has accessed your personal data, WHEN and what was the stated reason

Hi guys,

 

I have just received an email from DVLA regarding the KADOE system for StarPark LTD.

DVLA does not recognise them and they are not permitted to get information?

Could this be correct? 

 

Thanks, please see below. 

 

Dear  Sir or Madam,

 

Thank you for your e-mail dated 22/04/2019 regarding the below company. 

As one of the mangers within the Vehicle record Enquiry section this has been passed for my attention.

 

I can advise you that the company Starpark Ltd is not known to me therefore at this time they do not have access to our  KADEO service and are not permitted to receive information via this service.

 

Please note your request for the release of details of any request made for your details from our records has been actioned and a reply has been sent by royal mail please allow a few days for delivery.

 

Kind regards,

 

Letitia

so you didnt ask the right question,

WHO HAS ACCESSED MY DATA, WHEN AND WHY. was the first instruction for your letter to the DVLA

 

you have half of the answer though and that is enough to show that whoever did access the system will have unlawfully passed on your details to star park

 

Now you will have to start all over again but this time you show us EXACTLY what you intend to say before you send the letter

You are not new to parking problems so we expect you to pay more attention

Hi Eric,

 

Thanks for the reply. I have sent them two separate emails as suggested in previous post. One to ask who has accessed my details and one to ask if StarPark has access to KADOE system records.

 

I have not yet had a reply who has accessed my details.

 

Thanks

That is down to them but they are not obliged to consider an email and as they know they are in trouble they will do anything to obfuscate.

 

I really dont undersatnd why people wnat to demand to use email when a proper letter is theonly or best possible method of correspondence.

 

now in your case they may well send the requested information to you via their promised letter because they cant send it in an email as they have no way of verifying any email address

There are two other matters to consider. The general rule with parking companies is that they allow 10 minutes grace. So it seems unfair that here they expect you to pay to park within that period when you have not yet made up your mind to park at all.

The second point is that as they are with BPA then there are two periods of time involved prior to a ticket being issued. The first is the observation period [which is ten minutes minimum] and the second period is the grace period which is not specified but eight minutes over could include things like strapping a young child into  their car seat as well as an allowance for extra time when toddlers are involved.

Thanks Eric, I have already sent 2x separate letters via post. I did not get a reply for over a month, hence the reason for sending emails as suggested.

 

I will wait till end of this week and hope to receive a letter via post. If not I will follow up again with a proper letter via post. 

 

I have just received a letter from Newham Council planning permissions department (See below). I have also searched all the database myself and did not find any licenses or permissions being granted for the specific address. 

 

Thanks

 

"From your email I believe you are referring to the Town and Country Planning (Control of Advertisements) (England) Regulations 2007. 

 

I am unable to find any applications relating to new signage/advertisements at 218 Tollgate Road, E6 5YA."
