    • Please tell me you are going to do all you can to dissuade your son from getting involved with these crooks. I suppose they thrive because many people simply don't read what they're signing up to. They only realise when they have worked for a fortnight and end up owing money.
    • Thanks for your help, Dx. CRS are currenly acting on behalf of their 'Client' so it looks like they're trying to pull a fast one! Thank you!
    • Hi everyone, I live in a flat with family,  my wife and two very young daughters,      baby aged 3 weeks and little girl 15 months,    live in flat that is above a shop premises,  which is a Beauty Beauty Lounge. We have complained about breathing in vapors and fumes from the shop below to the business owner,   since she recently moved in,    but she denies using any strong chemicals or solvents,    even though she clearly advertises Nail, Hair, Spray Tans treatments etc. We have to endure headaches,   and itchy eyes due to there fumes that smell like strong solvents and ammonia smells,   which you can feel in your chest. We know that she does acrylic nails treatments (Acrylic solvents),   spray tans (Dihyroxyacetone),  hair treatments (Hair Dye and Perming Lotions etc), lip fillers, that are advertised,  and other hush hush cosmetic procedures. The business is permitted under a low impact classification etc,    but she is using all the basement rooms as treatment rooms,    not as storage as they apparently supposed to be,,     the shop at ground level,,,   she rents out various positions,   making it really busy at times.   She calls herself a practitioner,  like a doctor,   does this contravene the premises use classification ? The business apparently has no waste collection whatsoever,,   all waste chemicals go straight down the sinks and drains,   sharps and bio waste she most likely dumps in her household waste. She opens up in the morning usually about 9:30 am,    and stays open until late at night,    closing at sometimes 10 pm or so. All the while that she is open,    she has music playing constantly,   which we can hear in every room and can't get away from it in our living accommodation,    and is becoming a real nuisance. We are worried about the long term effects of breathing in these fumes as she has no extraction at all,  but fear that if fume extraction is put in,   that we would still be affected in the summer when the windows are open. Also we are worried about the fire risk,   as she has no fire extinguishers or fire alarm.   Then there is the question of how flammable chemicals are stored,   and what leakage measures she has.    We have only one exit,   though the kitchen,   and have to vacate down a wooden staircase,   with this underneath,  it is a constant worry. Her fire exit also comes through our basement that we use as a utility room,   which has no ceiling,  just bare wooden joists etc,  with no exit lighting or proper exit door.   I have also asked her on a number of occasions,    if she could turn down the Bass on her music,    that she has going BOOM BOOM BOOM,  usually from about 9:30 am,   until late about 8/9 pm, sometimes later. Her verbal reply was basically,   it's a beauty salon,,   what do you expect,    her text reply below, "to be quite frank I'm getting sick of it now I'm running a business and you live above a shop... your complaining about noise on a Saturday afternoon. I'm legally allowed to play music from 7am to 11pm." Sometimes,   its like a party downstairs,   and she is running her venue it like that, with celebration drinks for clients and friends. This is totally unacceptable and impossible to live with.   The letting agent says it is a Civil Matter,   and there is nothing that they can do.   The landlord has replied,    through the letting agents,   and said,   I'm not sure what I can do but talk to his commercial tenant in the shop,   which doesn't sound like he is bothered or taking it very seriously at all. Please can you advise us asap,,    as we are really struggling living with these problems.  
    • easily undone. and free I can do it for you.   can you post up a screenshot photo of what you are seeing that prevents you from accessing the PC use PDF only please read upload   dx  
    • Idem also sent me an envelope that was an inch thick supposedly full of documents that they were going to use as evidence against me ........   everything you mentioned in post 155 was there on paper according to idem and now that they have the evidence it would be better for both parties to avoid court and for me to sign up for a Tomlin order.  After going through the documents apart from all the paper work that was printed out from idems own network, there was no   Signed agreement No valid default notice No termination notice No statements from HSBC No notice of assignment As dx has stated in the post above, it is all designed to lead you into a panic and agree a payment plan with them and avoid court.

PESS Claim , DRP and Gladstone Solicitors

Recommended Posts

We received DRP Letter in October that we owe them 140 pounds as we didn't pay PESS on time.

We called DRP as we have not received any parking charges letter from PESS.


We live in the flat and normally if we are parked at wrong place, we will get tickets on our window shield which was not the case this time.

DRP didn't want to listen to us and asked us to pay them on the phone same time.

We asked them to send us the proof which they declined.


After that they started calling my husband on his phone which they noted when we called them initially. 

After 3rd call, husband got annoyed at them and ask them to stop harassing him at work.


In November we started getting letter from Zenith Collections for the same, which we ignored.

Now yesterday, we received the letter from Gladstone Solicitors that we have to pay the agent (DRP) of their client (PESS) 140 pounds or go to court.

We would like some guidance.

Shall we pay and be free or we have any chance of winning this case.


Thanks in advance..

Hi as this appears to be about a Parking Charge from a PPC,   I have moved your thread to the Private Land parking Forum, where you should get advice targeted to the situation


could you give some history about what the Invoice was for  and who the parking Contractor is  Did you appeal the charge, and it looks like you have had letters from the dreaded useless Gladstones demanding payment  Could you give the information asked for on this sticky and also post the  letter from gladstones to see if it is a Letter Before Claim/Action?



We could do with some help from you.

the reality is that PESS dont and cant obey the law so rely on using a bunch of bandits to frighten you.


Now the problem is you have tried to sort the matter out without actually knowing what it is about and also the do's and do'nts of  such things and now you are being harassed because you have given them the method to do so.


you need to start at the beginning and tell us what you think this may be about

so do you live in a development that uses private parking contractors?

If so, who?


Show us some pictures of the signage there and also tell us about the parking scheme

- ie who issues the permits,

is the development managed by agents,

what does the lease of your flat say about parking and so on.
