    • I've just seen your new post. A letter before action is the same as a letter of claim. You don't need a template. You simply need to inform the garage that the vehicle you bought has developed X defect, Y defect, Z defect. He has already been informed of them and given an opportunity to repair and he has either refused the chance to repair or else he has attempted the repair and it has failed – whichever is the case and so under the consumer rights act you are asserting your right to reject the vehicle and you want him to make the appropriate arrangements to collect the vehicle and to refund you the purchase price – plus any associated losses – and if he does not do so within 14 days then you will sue him in the County Court and without any further notice. Don't make this threat if you're not serious about going ahead with it. On day 15 issue the papers. In the intervening 14 days register with money claim and start preparing your particulars of claim. You can post them here if you want us to check them. Whatever you do, on day 15 you send them the good news
    • Well done Shelley. I'll amend your thread title.   HB
    • I'm afraid that your story is rather overlong. It would have been easier to understand it all if there had been less of a narrative and more of a bullet pointed chronology of facts. Although you informed the dealer within 30 days that there was a problem, the Consumer Rights Act requires that there be a clear and unambiguous assertion of your short-term right to reject the vehicle. It doesn't appear to me that you have done this. This isn't a problem at all because you are still well within six months. I understand that you have given them an opportunity to repair and that you have now rejected the vehicle. This is enough to trigger your rights under the Consumer Rights Act as long as the defects which you are complaining about are sufficient to render the vehicle as less than satisfactory quality. As I say, I haven't read through the detail of your story and I certainly haven't looked at all of the PDFs that you have apparently uploaded but I get the impression that you have been quite meticulous in keeping records. I've looked at the Google reviews of Elite and I have to say it doesn't bode very well. https://www.google.com/search?q=Elite+Preowned+Vehicles&rlz=1C1CHBF_en-GBGB822GB822&oq=Elite+Preowned+Vehicles&aqs=chrome..69i57j0l2j69i60j69i61l2.575j0j7&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8#lrd=0x47d8aa4f43f644d7:0x8e93221101489523,1,,,  There is no trust pilot page for them as yet. Maybe you would like to attend to that. You say that the dealer is fond of using social media so that kind of thing is important. Site team member@dx100uk has already suggested that you issue a letter of claim and that certainly seems the way to go although if you are driven to actually mount a claim and presented in court that I hope you won't mind me suggesting that you need to stop being a little bit more economical about the way you present your case. Just in case there is any debate over the defects which have been discovered and their significance then if you haven't done this already, you should make sure that you have got assessments and even quotations for the work from independent garages.
    • Hello dx100uk. Thanks for your attention and help with this. You had an even later night than me! I clicked on the 'letter before action' link which you kindly gave me. This took me to BankFodder's post 'Small Claims actions in the County Court FAQ - work in progress' which I have read through and also the 'Pre-Action Protocol' and 'Letter of Claim' links. I couldn't find reference to a Letter Before Action or is this the same as a Letter Of Claim? Also, my rejection letter already mentioned a 14 day period (taking us to 05/08/2019) for him to get back to me. Is it ok to send a Letter Before Action now? I only ask as I wouldn't want this to be viewed dimly by the court if it goes that far. I do understand that I need to take action as soon as possible so these are just a few clarification questions. I shall google for some Letter Before Action Templates and put something together. Thanks again.

MET windscreen PCN - disabled bay - ASDA Arla Old Dairy.South Ruislip

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

 

Today I went for shopping to South Ruislip ASDA located at Arla Old Dairy. 

Car parking was quiet and ample of spaces were there to park my car et

 

however I parked my car on one of the disabled badge box because that was close to the entrance and because I had two kids with me it was also convenient for me to park somewhere close to the entrance. 

 

Usually I park my car in other ASDA where the parking also owned by the ASDA but here I now found out that the parking is owned by Met Parking Services Ltd. 

 

The parking attendant stuck the parking charge notice on the front window (windscreen) of my car because there was no disabled badge displayed.

 

  I only realised of the notice when I was half way through going back home.   

 

Notice also mention about the appeals procedure where I first have to appeal through their online appeal service (www.appealmetparking.com).

 

   I would like to know if there are any chances of avoiding the charge completely or partially through the appeal (and in that case proper way to appeal) as I am a regular ASDA customer and other ASDA locations where the parking is also owned by ASDA the rules are not strictly applied and I presumed that south ruislip ASDA parking is also operated by ASDA it self which is not the case.

 

Looking forward to helpful responses.

 

Thanks,

S

Hi. I've moved you to the private parking forum for advice from the experts here.

 

Please don't appeal until they've had a look at your thread, it probably won't help and could make things worse.

Sorry if I have not understand but I have gone back to post 3 and all I see is list of questions which I have answered in the post after.

 

Do you mean that I do not need to pay any charge?

 

I guess mine was notice to keeper without photographic evidence and without the mention of Schedule 4 of the Protection of Freedoms Act 2012 

 

The notice also stats that I should not ignore it or else they can contact dvla to pursue payment.

that's you next step ...WAIT for it.

you dont have to appeal at all, if you appeal within the time then you lose the protection of the POFA and identify yourself as the driver and save them a fiver on the next letter.

 

You keep your mouth shut for the moment and see if they send you a NTK within the allowed times which are between 29 and 56 days after the date of the event. that letter must contain key phrases and information or it isnt valid.

 

MET get it wrong stop panicking and ignore what they say and take note of the advice given here.

 

No such thing as disabled spaces on private land other than in  the council planning dept mind. there is no paintwork or sign that is prescribed and the BB scheme doesnt apply to private land EXCEPT in Scotland, where it can be enforced by the council with the landowners permission.

safe wait now

if you go that way again

get full CLEAR pix of ALL the signs and the tiny print

where they are situated and from the perspective of if you can see a sign before you enter the private property

get pix of the 'disabled' bay you used its signs there and the tarmac graffiti.

 

just remember , there is NO such thing as disabled parking on private land

and a blue badge even if you had one, again means nothing on private land
