    • Thanks for the advice and pointers much appreciated, letter will come from daughter in law but I would type it her up and print it off for her.   The officer told her he could not guarantee it would not happen again like you say I am astounded the Police have time to be stopping a driver who has proved 5 times now that she is legal to be on the road none of it makes sense.
    • We requested evidence for the PCNs and have received this. Where do we go from here?  BW_Legal_Evidence-compressed.pdf
    • Definitely move the cars ASAP, the bailiff will come back and clamp them, don't wait bailiffs can now call on Sundays and most Bank Holidays.
    • What should you do? Totally ignore them. Next time you are there take photographs of Athena's notice at the entrance to the car park plus the position of the others as well as any difference between the T&Cs of their signs. Also a picture of their payment meter as the T&Cs there are often different from the signs. Check with the local council to see if Athena have permission to erect signs and ANPR cameras under the Town & Country [Advertisements] Regulations -they are often online these days. Also ignore any future correspondence from them and their unregulated debt collectors and do not be afraid of ever escalating fees most of which have no basis in Law. The time to come back to us is if they send you a letter of claim where a snotty letter to them may discourage them.Also read other threads on here to get an idea of the numties you are dealing with. One amoeba has more intelligence than all the car parking rogues together. It is still worthwhile contacting Lidl even without your receipt and especially where you have a record of regular visits to them.
    • First, I'm a bit surprised that your local police force has the manpower and time to waste chasing up a complaint from a member of the public that a motability car's paperwork may not be in order, bearing in mind that most forces can't be bothered to follow up reported burglaries, if stories in the popular press are to be believed.  But if that's what the police officer has told you, that's what he's told you.   If you want to follow up his suggestion to make a complaint, check your local force's website for how to do so.  Or (bearing in mind the history of problems that you've had before) write straight to the Chief Constable (website again).   Simply say you want to make a complaint about the number of times your daughter (or whoever) has been stopped by the police for no apparent reason.  Give a list of when and where this has happened and what the outcome was (presumably that the police took no further action).  I would also add that in the latest incident the police officer actually suggested making a complaint about the number of stops.  Not only do you (or your daughter or son or whoever it is) find this police action to be extremely distressing, but you also consider it a waste of scarce police resources.   Ask for an explanation as to why this keeps happening and ask for an assurance that the police will stop doing it.   You may also want to add (see what others advise about this) that the police officer in the latest incident also told you that they had received a call from someone saying that the car's paper work "might not be in order".  Say that you are concerned that whoever made this false allegation is wasting police time.  (You may want to think carefully about this as it may not improve your daughter's relationship with her neighbour!  If the allegation came from the neighbour.)   Those are my initial thoughts but it's a bit late to be thinking clearly.  See what others suggest rather than just relying on my suggestions.   [The letter really needs to come from your daughter (or whichever family member keeps being stopped) and not you, unless you can make it perfectly clear in the letter who it is that is being stopped etc. and that you are complaining on their behalf.  Is that clear?]

Hi all - little long winded so ill try to break it down.

 

I run my own business and am classed as self employed.

 

In June this year (10th) I went away with a fellow person in my industry for a 3 day trip, over 420 miles away. Bare in mind this person knew my financial situation at the time, so I was verbally led to believe id be paid on day 3. But nothing in writing. On day 3 this person said, and confirmed in writing later on that day he would pay me within 14 days. Well, that was 36 days ago and ive still not been paid and he is getting a tad nasty. Ive sent invoices every 14 days, overdue invoices etc...… but nothing.

 

This person has a LTD company and basically told me that if I persue him he will just dissolve it. Im not to fussed about that, because, he has a business page / profile etc.... on social media, but the 3 day job offer and all correspondence since has been through his personal page. So ill just sue him personally if need be.

 

Ive been looking online and it says a business transaction is legally late if it is more than 30 days overdue, unless its been agreed previous (eg 60 or 90 days) which it wasn't.

 

So, I am assuming my next steps are to send a final LBA / Invoice giving 14 days, this will then take it to 50 days. Then start a money claim online, is that right.

 

Its not just about the money anymore, its about teaching this guy a lesson, he is not poor, he has other 'staff' who he pays weekly, I believe thee other staff are classed as self employed too.

 

This thread may get quite long but ill certainly need help when doing the MCO as ive never done it before. 

 

Can anyone offer any other advise, charges I can start to add, I know about the 8% interest starting from day 31, what about any other charges I can add for repeat invoices, overdue invoices etc...

What sort of business are we talking about?

Something tangible (building trade) or virtual (IT consultancy,  door to door sale)?

It’s a service trade, ie we provide a specialist service. not sure why that matters though tbh and what affect it has from my original query.

If he was a builder he might own assets (tools), but as he's a specialist trade, whatever that is, sounds like he won't have any tools to be used for payment. 

Correct?

That depends which route on which you want to go down, as a ltd business, most thing may be on finance. But certainly not all,  But as a person the guy has a a mortgage, cars, expensive holidays etc..... 

 

i am happy to start a MCOL against the LTD company or personal. 

 

As said, everything regarding this job was on his personal account, not his LTD company one.

right, you say this was a B2B contract with one breath and then say it was personal in the next.

You had better be clear as to the nature of this agreement before you start a claim or it will be thrown out because you have failed to sue the correct entity for the correct reason.

 

What you do ahve goping for you is the agreement for payment is confirned in writing so check on whetehr that agreement was made froma business or personal email/phone and go after him with that in mind.

Yes, you will need to send a LBA saying how much is owed and why and give at least 7 days to pay up or you will take any necessary action to recover the money
