    • Hello all, also in the same boat as you with auxillis and car hire costs being disputed by the At-fault drivers insurance company (Aviva).  Husband received his court date this week. The court date is for early March 2021. So 5.5 months notice. The accident took place at Easter 2019.  it is quite nerve racking and although we have been assured that the policy means we are not liable for any costs should the court fail, it is still a worrying time. We have provided all the bank statements etc and because we had a small amount of money in the bank (couple of thousand) we are worried they will say that this was enough to spend on a replacement car. 
    • Well done Paul...delighted you have managed to resolve this.   Andy
    • It is usual policy to commence with a short tem lease, then when this ends to go onto a mothly renewable arrangement. As far as your safety is concerned it will be the same as it has been since the end of your short term tenancy. There is procedure to reclaim the property, but that is through what is called, the section 21 procedure, unless there is arrears, This gives you plenty of notice, talking months. If you are worried , the best thing to do is to talk to the new owners or their letting agents. It would be good to see the new contract the agents have given you.
    • Thank you.  Threads that point to success - or to mistakes - are very useful for motorists that will come on here in the future.   What you have done is utter insanity.  Despite being given on a plate two threads where motorists beat Athena in the same week as your case you've gone and handed over money to the fleecers.  It doesn't take much to work out that (a) not handing over money you don't owe to conmen is a better strategy than (b) handing over money you don't owe to conmen then trying to get it back.   The amount was never "going up" from £45 to £90 because it was never £45 in the first place.  It was always £0.  You were being charged for overstaying by eight seconds which is legally "de minimis" ("the law does not deal with trivialities").  You couldn't read Athena's signs anyway as the car park was pitch black!  Etc.  Etc.   Athena's position will be that you admitted the debt (otherwise why did you pay it?)  I hope chargeback goes well but often it's a battle to get banks to carry out chargeback and they will understandably be bemused as to why you paid this money if you thought you didn't owe it.  Bluntly you've just made life a million times harder for no reason.  It's like a football team manager who instructs the players to score two own goals in the first minute and then try to win the game.     That said, go for chargeback and good luck.

    • I’m in desperate need of help
       
      I bought some clothes online in may through Evans and paid through PayPal
      returned them all seven days later
       
      I waited the 14days for my refund and no refund came
      I put in a dispute through PayPal but I didn’t get any emails to escalate the case - PayPal closed it. 
      evans said they couldn’t refund the money because PayPal have cancelled the refund because of the open dispute
       
      I contacted PayPal
      they said the dispute had been closed but Evans at no point had attempted a refund.
      fast forward to today
       
      I’ve got copies of numerous messages sent to and from twitter messages as it’s the only way I can contact them
      I’ve also contacted their customer service too
      all I get is PayPal have cancelled refund because dispute is still open.
       
      I have proved that the dispute is closed
      I have got an email saying that if Evans sent the refund they would accept it
      but up until the date I got the email they have not once attempted a refund .
       
       I have sent them a letter before court email
      I have even offered to have the full refund as a gift card just to get this sorted !
       
      I’m literally at the end of my tether and don’t know where to turn next !
       
      i suffer with mental health issues and this is affecting my health and I’d saved the money for a year to buy these clothes as I’m on a low income .

Sorry if this has been covered.

 

CHAMBERLAIN BUILDINGS.

Driver received Claim Form. Claimant EURO etc...

Address for documents: GLADSTONES etc...

Top right hand page: COUNTY COURT NORTHANTS etc ..

 

This will be defended but firstly who should I respond to, if anybody?

 

Parked for less than 5 minutes outside of bay(no ticket required) Insufficient time to read signage detailing 'contract'

Operative had no id or uniform and proceeded to take a couple of pics of vehicle. Unsure who he was initially.

 

Then POC £100 for PCN; £60 Contractual costs and then statutory interest .

 

Grateful for any advice please.

Actually Rincon, you need to be more vague than concise and to the point.   The thing is you can elaborate on points later, but can't introduce new ones.   For example -

  You need to take the time to read other relevant threads on this forum. They are exactly like yours.

You go online using the details on the form.   You acknowledge the claim form,  say you will defend all, do not tick contest jurisdiction, then click through until the end and click save.

This gives you a couple of weeks to prepare a defence.  You also need to send the relevant CPR request to gladstones.

Any advice i give is my own and is based solely on personal experience. If in any doubt about a situation , please contact a certified legal representative or debt counsellor..

 

 

If my advice helps you, click the star icon at the bottom of my post and feel free to say thanks

we will guide you through all of this tell us the details of dates, times place etc and what paperwork you have received and when and what if any you have sent to them. saying nothing to them until this point may actually work out in your favour.

 

you also say DRIVER received claim form, explain as they send it to keeper unless driver has been named.

Hello and welcome to CAG.

 

I'm very sorry to hear about your wife, please accept CAG's condolences.

 

If you could bear with us for a little while, I'm sure the experts will be along to comment. Don't worry too much about this, it can normally be resolved one way or another but please don't do anything until the guys give you some answers.

 

Best, HB

Have you acknowledged the claim online?, that is by far the best way, acknowledgement is to the County Court.

We could do with some help from you.

We have ignored everything to date. Where may I reference this 10 minutes rule thanks?

 

When we have a robust defence, who do we submit it to? It's not clear- GLADSTONES or the COUNTY COURT?

You file your defence with the court.

copy to Gladstones is recommended as good procedure but not compulsory if you are filing online.

 

You acknowledge the claim within 12 days of ts receipt and then get an outline of your defence in within a further 14 days of the cut off for acknowledgement within 4 weeks fo the date the claim form fell on your doorstep.

 

the outline defence is OK for the first point, the second is irrelevant as it isnt a regulated activity unlike council parking  officers or door security. I would state that no lawful contract was offered at the time so there is no cause for action in this matter.

 

We can help you add meat to the bones of that argument when you have to do your witness statement but in the meanwhile pictures of the entrance to the land from the public highway and pictures of the signage ther will aid us enormously as the chances are they have made mistakes in the offer so you cant have been deemed to have accepted.

 

Gladstoes will have used a generic roboclaim layout so it wont have any detail and that helps you as you can rubbish it later as well. Chances are once you file a full defence they will drop the cvlai because they wont want to spend money on somehting where the chances of winning are slim.

 

they have lied about the amount of the claim (added costs that aren't allowed under law) and they use that uplift to do things on the cheap so funding a day out isnt in their plans

Have filed claim via MCOL with COUNTY COURT. Daughters details(defendant) through my Gateway account.

 

Will using GLADSTONES enquiry email address suffice, for the PCR, as I can't find anything more specific, ie litigation?

Send the CPR request by post - get free proof of posting from the post office. Don't give them your email address needlessly.

 

Question for all - have Gladstones ever complied with any CPR requests that you know of?

Link to post
Share on other sites

Gladstones will not likely comply with CPR, but that is more ammunition for you. Email is never a good idea as it gives them the opportunity to serve or give stuff to you at 11:55pm the day before a hearing and will swear blind you had the info in time.  they are devious.

We could do with some help from you.

I only asked the question because I'm assisting someone "off-site" with defending a claim by them.

 

Lo and behold, Gladstones have complied (albeit "Without Prejudice save as to costs") and given until a certain date to pay a F&F reduced settlement. By that date, the claim should be stayed. I'm assuming it's a final throw of the dice.

 

I did note on someone else's thread just a while ago that they've also complied with a CPR request - in part, at least.

 

Anyway, sorry to digress from the OP's thread.

Thanks for that Shamrocker. The obvious conclusion is when they don't respond at all that there are too many points missing that  damage their case. It also speaks volumes when they only comply in part to the CPR request.

Ericsbrother: visited area on foot and was unable to take a picture of signage,(my phone) however you need to get up close to read it.

 

One phrase says 'no grace period given' how are you supposed to read it without getting out of a vehicle?

 

i noticed a couple sitting in an unmarked bay, however it seems they may be able to take aerial photos'

No Grace given?  That of itself is unfair, so any alleged contract could well be void on that head alone.  Really need pics if possible, there is likely something else they have shot themselves in the foot with also in there.

We could do with some help from you.

yep,

a contract that breaks the law isnt a contract.

Unfair under S62 of the Consumer rights Act as well.

 

You will need pictures of everything,

in detail and also how it appears from the drivers point of view.

 

if ther are no signs at the entrance of the car park then we want pictures of the entrance to show that there are no signs.

that will be more damning than the detail of some small notice halfway up a back wall

 

now for details of the letters ect.

We need exact times and dates for the event,

dates for when they issued the NTK and

when it arrived as these are prescribed by law.

 

What do you have as far as what they sent out. If you dont have the original NTK (first demand) then you will need to ask for sight of it as part of the CPR 31.14 request

 

as daughter is defendant it must be her that signs off everything even if you are doing the legwork.

you can be her lay rep on the day if it gets that far, probably wont

Ericsbrother: Thank you for the update.

 

I have all the paperwork and I will get you the pictures you require shortly. I am 'without car' currently and it was an 11 mile round trip on foot on Tuesday to discover my phone would not work!!

 

The point about my daughter. I logged the claim via my Gateway account but obviously put all her details in regarding the "offence" and the claim.

It's not an Offence, it's a Civil invoice.

Brassnecked: I know, hence the quotation marks. A hopeful, not particularly civil but offensive invoice at that🙂.

Seriously, I'm grateful for your help.
