    • Couple of things to point out. Council won't be interested in dog's poo in the caravan as it is private property.  At best the h&s department would take a statement and pictures and if it happened again they would act.   As the devil's advocate I would ask: 1. If you were so distressed to ask £4k compensation as suggested,  why did you stay for the full length of the holiday? Is it because your complaint was addressed and caravan cleaned? 2. Bed bugs? Where are the evidence? Couldn't it be another insect's bite? Most of the world population occasionally wakes up to a sore bite from unknown insects.  This can happen anywhere,  even in your house. Hands up if you have never experienced a mosquito bite in your house. 3. Manager took ownership of the problem immediately and fixed the faults. What else could he do? Move you from a caravan site to a 5 star presidential suite? Did you ask for this in writing there and then or you accepted the fix? 4. They offered £500 compensation. That's more than a quarter of the cost of the holiday. I don't think a judge would find that unreasonable.  5. Unfortunately the law doesn't act on ifs, so if something doesn't happen you won't get much interest. IF your boy had eaten the poo, the claim could have escalated by a large margin, but you, as a responsible parent, prevented this and nothing happened to your boy who went on to have a jolly good time. So unfortunately you can't claim for something that didn't happen.  To better understand this, think about a window cleaner leaving his ladder resting on a wall. IF the wind blows it on my car i could claim damage, but not before it happens.   So, my approach would be more pragmatic, by all means ask for more and see what happens, but £500 it's already a good offer in my opinion.    For future reference, whenever i go to holiday parks, caravan sites etc., first thing I do is to clean the lot. It takes an hour or so, but then i'm sure that i won't get any problems from hidden bacteria or other nasty surprises.  I know it shouldn't be this way, but it is. Us, the consumer,  have pushed for cheaper and cheaper prices and this is the result. We need to adapt unfortunately or we would be in court every day. Then there would be no time for holidays.
    • Hi, Last payments were around 2009. The last time any sort of letter showed up was about 3 years ago to my knowledge but only received by me a year after it was written as hung onto by my sister.    I haven't managed to open a bank account yet but made progress in what they required so will try this week.    Thanks for responding. At the time maybe I should have gone bankrupt in hindsight but before I left it pretty much all stopped after asking for the SAR' s. I had settled what I could prior to that.  Then after a big gap I started to get random debt agencies picking up on a few, irrespective of saying there were outstanding SAR requests they came and went and I did inform them where I was living overseas which is why Amex went for the RMA and then suddenly stopped.    You are of course right about running away. Seriously the whole thing gave me real depression which is something I only thought happened to other people. It has taken me all this time to get back to a place where I think I can take a deep breath and deal with it both for my sake and my mum.    I will keep a log. What happens might prove relevant to others and I can't see anyone else has kept one although a lot of people seem to have similar stories.    Thanks again        
    • Just make sure the Blue badge is visible in the car so the JBW bailiff can see it, otherwise he might clamp to put pressure on you.
    • Let them spout and don't tell them that you have recorded the call until its nearly ended and you have said you are logging date and time of all calls as they are in breach of the Protection from Harassment Act 1997    Prohibition of harassment.

    • It wasn’t recorded as to be honest, I was caught a little off guard however they are calling on a daily basis so I’ll make a point of recording the next one!   there won’t be any crumbling here. I’ve just been reading through the history of this to jog my memory on some of the events and it’s reminded me just how pathetic they are as a business. I fully intend to waste as much of their time and hopefully money as possible.

UKPC windscreen PCN - Tesco superstore, Yate shopping Centre , Worcs BS37 1PS - now DCA letter

Recommended Posts

I received a charge ticket in Tesco on 8th December 2018 for having front tyres over the lines.  There is a very large area at the front of my vehicle which is not used by anybody or anything.

 

£100 reduced to £60 within 14 days.

 

I appealed on 14 January 2019 and stated the above, also the fact that my vehicle is a Landrover with outward opening back door, plus spare tyre on it.  I said that if I park like a normal car, when I open the door with trolley, my shopping and me would be in the busy roadway behind me thereby making it dangerous.  And incidentally, we are pensioners living on benefits.

 

On 4th February 2019, letter stating Appeal was fruitless.

 

On 13 February 2019, letter from Debt Recovery Plus demanding £160.  Letter also contained Important Information and quoted the Bevis (?) case.

 

Is the next step to apply to POPLA?

 

Thanks

Court, if it ever happens is a long way off. Youre talking months, even longer, if it ever happens.

Theres a long procedure they have to go through first, and you can challenge them every step of the way.

You ALWAYS ignore the DCA. They cannot do a single thing, despite them thinking they can.

And fill that link in that DX posted.

Is this correct.

The nTK was sent and recieved the same day as you got the pcn in the car park?

The info we need is what date have the said the NTK was created, and when did you recieve it.

The letter from UKPC with the reference Notice to Keeper is dated 08/12/2018...There's nothing dated 9 Jan 2019.

 

Yes it was a windscreen ticket.

 

As for shooting myself in the foot?!  I am insured to be the only driver, there is no other driver, do I have to resort to their tactics too?  Please explain.

the date of the letter is 09/01/2019

the dec date is the date of the ticket

LOOK at you scan!!

 

anyone can drive your car on their policy under third party cover

if they have a policy that grants so ...as 99% do!! go read YOUR policy!

it says you can driver other cars

 

how the beep does a private parking company know who is /isn't insured to drive it anyway?

they have NO access to that info

 

you've just shot yourself in the foot by writing an appeal stating you were the driver

the little protection you had under POFA has now gone.

 

frankly I am shocked that as a user that been here since 2008 obviously didn't bother to read even a few threads here on private parking tickets before dealing with this before starting this thread.

 

anyway we have big buckets and lot of corks to prevent your sinking ship/.

I have re-looked at my scan more than once now, and still cannot see 09/01/2019 anywhere!

 

And yes, I fully know that, under my insurance terms, I can drive other cars, but nobody else can drive my car.  I am the sole driver.  

 

I also spent 2 days reading other threads on here before I posted so I am sorry if I don't meet your exacting standards.  I just needed some help.

I can drive your car with your permission as I have third party insurance A police officer or a soldier under orders may drive your car without your permission. They may even lawfully shoot you if you try to stop them. None of this concerns the parking co, they just wander about on private land where you dont need car tax or insurance.

 

Now the POFA sets conditions that the parking co's have to work to or they cant claim a penny from you or anyone else either.

 

By appealing you give away the protections in law that are there isf they get things wrong.

However, a dca has no interest in anything, they are not bailiffs, they dopnt own the debt and cant successfully sue you i you point out they have no locus.

 

So, whatever happened at court onmonday has no bearing on this.

 

Now you cant appeal to POPLA as you are too late.

 

UKPC are not honest and therefore I would suggest that you go back to the car park when you cabn and take pictures of the signage at the entrance to the land from the public highway and take pictures of the entrance even if there are no signs, take pictures of any different signs within the car park itself and take pictures of where your vehicle was parked so a comparison can be made to their evidence on the NTK they sent you through the post. UKPC  are not beyond fabricating evidence, they ahve been censured several times before for doing so

Thank you for the photographs. However the ones we would like to see are any notices at the entrance to the car park: any others inside the car park [especially those that are different from the ones at the entrance ]and  those at the payment machine. Please ensure that we will be able to read all the notices. Also please check with the local Council to see if they have applied for planning permission under the Town and Country planning [advertisements] regulations. Often they don't have it which means they have no permission to erect the signs.

I did the whole car park, including the 2 entrances, and where I was parked.  There wasn't 1 in that whole area!  I shall try and learn how to label my pictures when my son returns home and it may make it clearer.  I shall contact the council too.

 

I'm meeting with the Shopping Centre manager asap as he previously, about 2 years ago,  took a parking ticket off me and said he would deal with it!  Again, my front tyres were on the line!  Did you notice that picture with that cream coloured car parked way over the line today??!!!!

It's free parking for 4 hours.  The shopping centre boasts 100 shops and free parking.  However, some ladies that shop and do lunch take longer than that.  I know it's a local grudge!

The one I could get closest to is where I am stood at the boot of the small black car on my right.  I couldn't read the notice either, in real-life!

we cant read any of the notices. Although that is helpful when you argue they arent prominent enough we really need to be ablw to see all of the small print on EVERY different sign.

Thsi is made clear on just about evry post of this nature so you also need to take the time to read loads of other threads to see what is what

now several things to point out.

 

The first big sign you encounter says 4 hours free aprking see other signs for conditions. This is an invitation to treat and is not a contract that binds you to the other termsdso you can park for 4 hours and not have to consider what any of the other signs say. the commonest example of an invitation to treat is a sign in a shop windoe saying " sale, 50% off most items" when you go in  and pick up an item and are told that it isnt in the sale you cant force the shopkeeper to sell it at a reduction and converseley he cant force you to buy an item just because you picked it up to ask about it.

 

You can wander round the shop and leave without purchasing anything, whether yiou saw the sale notice or not. The shopkeeper cnat demand you buy somehting or charge you  for the heat and light.  So as the invitation is for 4 hours then that is that, you dotn even need to read the other signs.

 

Also the signs say if you do this then you have a contract with UKPC but if you do that you have a contract with Highview. No, should you accept the terms of the signage then that cannot be with 2 parties so the signs needs to amke clear who is offering you the contract and what the terms are. If UKPC have a contract with tesco then it should be their signs and they cant offer agency, even if the agreement with Tescos say they can that is not what is being offered to you.

 

Yiou can argeu that as UKPC are offering you a contract then any breach like parking on a yellow line isnt in that contract so isnt a breach Highview cant offer you a separate set of temrs beacuse they are not the principals. all they can do is act as agents to UKPC at most and this means that you are not answrable to both.

 

Now in your case UKPC have demanded money for something that is  applicable if a ticket is slapped on the vehicle and although we know they did this we havent seen the original ticket to see if it actually matches any of the terms offered in the signs that dont necessarily mean anything.
