    • agree with all that HB, but biden certainly didn't excel, and difficult as that is with a garbage spouter like the bean stain coloured Trump, it is what he needs to be able to not just handle - but show up as the spoiling garbage it is. Grown ups don't win by allowing spoiled children free reign in their tantrums.   Admittedly the host failed miserably, but Bidens preparedness was clearly sadly lacking.  
    • Good morning I've attached the reply I've received from Marquis in response to my letter of claim.I would like to add a few things that I consider important. I first reported the heater fault on August 3rd. That was the 42 day since purchase, but Marquis had had the van for 12 days so the clock stops as I understand it so it was the 30th day which means that the fault was present when it was sold. They had had one chance to repair and failed to investigate any further. I think the cost that they are refusing to pay are more than reasonable. An offer of a tank of diesel world have settled part of it.   And they are definitely not getting a copy of my bank statement   Although I am sure that I'm not obliged to use the Warranty provided I've been reading my Warranty document and it says it's administered by "A1 guarantee ltd "and they are who I should ring to make a claim.The email address to make a complaint is a "global ins" email. i find it very confusing as in the front of the schedule it says "This guarantee is a non-insured product, any obligation to repair your motorhome will be our sole responsibility. Should we cease to trade, then this product will no longer be valid"     Good Afternoon Mr Desnos    We have reviewed your case and I am happy to refund you the direct the costs received from Truma totalling £421.00, this can be paid directly in to your account. We would require a copy of your bank statement to include address, sort code/account number.    In relation to the additional costs as mentioned we did not authorise the independent mobile engineer this was undertaken directly by you, the offer to return the van was always there and with this in mind the terms of the global warranty were ignored. With regards to the visit to Truma this was also undertaken without authority from the global warranty agreement.    The fuel costs are not covered within the terms of the warranty and are strictly a back to base warranty with no provision for the costs incurred for travel.    As the vendor of the vehicle, we have certain legal obligations to you in particular under the consumer rights Act 2015, you are also under a legal obligation to take all reasonable steps to minimise amy costs or expenditure for which you intend to hold us responsible.   The vehicle was supplied to you with the benefit of a warranty which is being administered by Global. We respectfully suggested that the first such reasonable step would have been to arrange for the problem with your vehicle to be investigated and a claim submitted to the warranty company as previously suggested by Marquis South Yorkshire. Having declined to so you cannot seek to recover this costs.    Please confirm your bank details and a copy of your bank statement so that I can duly process the payments agreed. Also a copy of your driver’s licence for proof to process money.    Yours sincerely

    • Those are very valid questions. I wouldn't want to sign either.   I suppose a way to find out how it works in practice is to ring a couple of lenders who offer equity release and ask them the question.   A couple we know took an equity release plan and it was quite heavily regulated back then. They had to involve and adviser to go through all the ramifications with them or the lender wouldn't have accepted the application. I don't know if that still applies.

    • 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 .

I just received a county court claim as a result of briefly parking in a disabled bay at a shopping centre some time ago.

 

The essence of the claim is that the parking company say that I entered into a contract with them based on the signs displayed there.

 

I'm contemplating a defence that I did NOT enter into a contract.

In fact I did not read the sign.

 

How can this be an enforceable with no signature.

I usually seek legal advice before entering into any contract.

 

Anyone got any advice please

If the signs comply with the regulations and are correctly positioned and there is Council permission for their signage as well as having a properly authorised contract with the land owners then that is sufficient to possibly establish a contract between the parking company and the motorist.

 

The fact that you did not see or read the signs is irrelevant.

However there are still other reasons that even if the parking company got all the things right in my first sentence [which is rare] that can damage the chance of them getting paid by motorists.

 

it would help therefore if you could kindly complete the above questionnaire.

 

You appear to have left matters a bit late [though quite often ignoring most of the twaddle from these rogues is the best course ] so speed is of the essence at the moment.

you say briefly so how long was the parking event?

 

please give us all the relevant details such as name of company, place where the event took place, date and time and what paperwork you received and what you still have.

 

Thtye have to follow very precise procedures to make a successful claim so we need to see what has occurred so far so as to comment on the liklihood of defending such a claim successfully ( generally very high)

 

If you live near to the place we would like pictures of the signage at the entrance to the car park and the entrance even if there are no signs, picturs of the signs themselves and pictures of where exactly your car was parked.

 

Disabled spaces on private land have no definition in E&W so there is no proper sign but intent will be taken into account and that means the use of specific signage in each disabled bay, not just a pain job on the tarmac

Replying to questions posted earlier

 

=========PASTE================

Name of the Claimant ?

 

EXCEL PARKING SERVICES LTD

 

claimants Solicitors:

 

Not sure. I binned all previous correspondence

 

Date of issue –

 

2nd September 2019

 

 

What is the claim for

1."THE CLAIM IS THE BREACH OF CONTRACT FOR BREACHING THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS SET ON PRIVATE LAND.

 

2.THE DEFENDENT'S VEHICLE xxx xxx WAS IDENTIFIED IN THE MIDDLESBROUGH LIESURE PARK ON THE IN BREACH OF THE ADVERTISED TERMS AND CONDITIONS; NAMELY PARKED IN A DISABLED SPACE WITHOUT CLEARLY DISPLAYING A DISABLED PERSONS BADGE.

 

3.AT ALL MATERIAL TIMES THE DEFENDANT WAS THE REGISTERED KEEPER AND/OR DRIVER.

 

THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS ON ENTERING PRIVATE LAND WERE CLEARLY DISPLAYED AT THE ENTRANCE AND IN PROMINENT LOCATIONS.

 

THE SIGN WAS THE OFFER AND THE ACT OF ENTERING PRIVATE LAND WAS THE ACCEPTANCE OF THE OFFER HEREBY ENTERING INTO A CONTRACT BY CONDUCT.

 

THE SIGNS SPECIFICALLY DETAIL THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS AND THE CONSEQUENCES OF FAILURE TO COMPLY, NAMELY A PARKING CHARGE NOTICE WILL BE ISSUED,

 

4.AND THE DEFENDANT HAS FAILED TO SETTLE THE OUTSTANDING LIABILITY.

 

5.THE CLAIMANT SEEKS THE RECOVERY OF THE PARKING CHARGE NOTICE, CONTRACTUAL COSTS AND INTEREST.

**IMPORTANT** WE NEED TO SEE THE FULL POC MINUS YOUR PERS DETAILS>> NOT AN ABRIDGED VERSION**THIS MUST INCLUDE THE LOCATION

 

The above is verbatim copy of PoC including any omissions and errors. The highlighted text in blue would seem to be where the date ought to have been entered but it has not. Furthermore the location is STOCKTON  not Middlesbrough as stated and nor it is a Liesure park. It is a shopping area.

 

What is the value of the claim?

£160

court Fee £25

 

Has the claim been issued by the Private parking Company or was the PCN assigned and it is the Debt purchaser who has issued the claim ?

 

I believe the claim has been issued by the parking company

I've logged on to that site and taken a look around.

Is there any merit in letting this roll to closer to the date limitations.

 

When I took out a claim against my back for bank charges some years ago they went to the 14 day limit and then to the 28 day limit

 

I've been back to take pictures and I find the name of the parking company is UKPC not Excel.

I've had a few of these as they are so easy to pick up e.g. overstaying by a few mins.

This is the only one I've received for a disabled bay so assuming this is the one.

Have UKPC transferred this to Excel?

Sign at entrance to car Park.

Another sign inside gives phone number for the owners/managers of the land

Ok,

is there a place called Middlesborough liesure(sic) park that has a different location to where your vehicle was?

if there is they are stuffed from the outset and on my map Stockton is several miles away and doesnt have such a development.

 

as the place you are thinking of is managed by UKPC they would have nothing to do with VCS/Excel but it may be that they are on about a different event.

 

Now the Particulars of Claim are left vague becasue they use a template rather than waste time actually looking up the dertails and entering them.

 

This will damage their claim  but unfortunately unless the judge reading the papers has seen it all before it wont end up being summarily dismissed so you have to carry on as though you will have to attend court at some point next year.

 

Now what you need to do is send them a CPR 31.14 request for documents and include in the list of stuff you want copies of

the original ticket slapped on your vehicle,

a copy of the NTK they sent through the post and

proof of the assignment of authority from the landowner to enter into contracts with the public and to make civil claims in their own name.

 

you can point out that you are also maiing a request for all of the data they hold on you as a SAR anyway so they will be obliged to send most of it in a different timescale.

 

I hope that you are right about the error as that  will be something to raise with the ICO as a very serious matter

Given the fact that running car parks the way these crooks do is a licence to print money it is no surprise that you have collected a couple of parking tickets from different places.

 

And whilst it is a good practice to ignore all the twaddle you get sent from them, it is best to retain all their paperwork in case they take you to Court. That way we could have pointed out the discrepancies in their paperwork that would quash any of their claims in Court.

 

That being said,

did you pay for your ticket at the leisure park and how long did you actually park there as opposed to the time you parked in Stockton.

 

We need photos of

the signs in Middlesborough at the entrance,

and around the carpark including

the notice at the ticket machine.

 

After that please check with the local Council to see if planning permission was granted for the signs and cameras under the Town and Country [Advertisements] regulations [check their planning portal first on their website].

 

I know you said that you had thrown away all your PCNs from them but if you do come across any, please post them up.

I’ve checked the Middlesbrough Car Park and I know where it is now.

 

I’ve very rarely parked there and I don’t recall ever getting a ticket.

 

 The one in Stockton is a FREE car park.

 

I believe the one in Middlesbrough is too.

The Middlesborough park shares the same area  as the Frances park. I saw a ticket machine in the park which may have been in the other park. I was rather hoping that it was a paing park and you hadn't paid which would have got you out this mess. Could you please check if it is a free park and if not whether you would have paid.

I visited the car park yesterday and will attach a PDF of photos.

I do recall visiting Pizzahut once in the last year and parking to the left of the entrance (in pic).

I'm not sure if I was aware of it being a disabled bay at the time as it would have been dark or dusk.

I received no ticket.

 

The area is Free Parking serving Pizza Hut and MacDonalds directly and a few others close-by.

 

I will be sending request for letter to excel directly after posting this and will make it "signed for"

no need for signhed for, just get proof of posting.

 

Let us assume that it is this place them and that you, like huindreds of others suffered a missing screen ticket because they know that they have extra hoops to jump through when issuing a notice to driver so they just ignire the law and go straight for the NTK. Not entirely unlawful as the wording on what applies at the time is vague and as you binned everything you wont get to see their evidence until much later so we cant tell you if they have got it wrong or not.

 

However, what appears to be the death for them is that there is no term barring you from parking in a so called disabled bay so you havent breached any advertised condition. The sign also mentions other signage and that means that is sign isnt a n offer of a contract anyway but an "invitation to treat" so you can take it or leave it even if it had such a term.

 

When they submit their evidence look out for a cut and paste of a different sign so my advice would be keep your outline defence vague on this point and say that there was no breach of any contractual condition offered at the time so no cause for action against you by the claimant. they can then pay good money to find out what they have missed rather than you telling themk now and them dropping the claim leaving you with no comeback having had to waste your time and effort finding out what it was all about.

 

the other things that a paint job on the tarmac isnt the recognised sign for disabled parking and they dont truly apply to private land in E&W anyway.

thanks.

 

The "welcome" sign at the entrance seems largely about deterring football supporters from using it.

Clearly the parking is for users of the facilities of which I was such a person.

 

Did you spot that the disabled bays and have a sign post as well as the icon on the concrete.  

 

So are you saying they cant apply disabled parking to private land parking ?

Is there somewhere I can get info on that.

 

Sorry what is E.W. ?
