    • You will be subject to the same laws notice periods and protections as with any length of contract.    From my own and other’s personal experience I would treat it as an amber warning light to start putting out feelers into what’s out there on the market   A 6 month contract is great for people who might be waiting for a new build , or having renovations done on their own property. For someone like yourself who wants security it might well be time for you to consider moving on.
    • Thank you. You still haven't given as much information. We need more. Please will you tell us who the retailer is – are they in UK or elsewhere? What was the item and what is its value? Did you declare the correct value? Or did the retailer declare the correct value? You say you paid by credit card – not a debit card against your bank account? Please read around all the Hermes threads on this forum. There is lots of good information there. In particular understand your rights under the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999.
    • I am sorry, but without seeing the contract, and knowing what is on it or what effect it has, it is impossible to say.     
    • A16 BYN is the plates that the car was advertised with, and obviously the plate which I checked the mot history with, I also thought the same that the website maybe hadn't been updated with the most recent mot that the dealer had got done, I asked for the original plate number whilst doing the logging in to my bank account, to pay both the dealer and the shiply transporter. Bearing in mind I had told the dealer around 6pm that I would get the deposit sorted out when I put my son to bed, that gave him every opportunity to send me any pre contract details etc. Just over an hour later (son still wasn't in bed) asked for the address of where the vehicle was to be picked up from as I couldn't accept the quote for the transporter without that information. Less than an hour after that he whatsapped me asking if I still want to buy the car because he's getting enquiries from other interested parties and is telling them that he's sold the car to me (no deposit  paid as yet). I then replied a few min later having finally got my son to sleep.    Anyway between me sorting out the details and where to pick the car up from, log into my banking to pay deposits etc he'd  messaged me the original plate no... which I didn't see until after I'd done all the aformentioned.    I decided to check the history on that plate as like yourself I had been confused about the mileage, low and behold there was the most recent mot containing 5 advisories which were never mentioned to me. Another thing I can't really understand is the expiry date of the mot before that either and I did query all of this with the dealer, only to be told that cars in Scotland are renowned for corrosion issues...and that if I had checked the mot history I would have seen them, I explained I had checked the history on the plate in the advert as I had no knowledge of what the original plate numbers were and he told me that the most recent mot was under the plate in the advert. Most certainly the mot certificate he then sent me on whatsapp had the advertised plate on the certificate,  however, it wasn't showing up on the dvla page.    By this stage I was irate with him for several reasons, for not notifying me of the advisories and telling me that he had checked the dvla and the most recent mot was showing up on the advertised plates, I then screenshot the page with the expiry and this car is not mot'd information, and 2 for telling me that cars in Scotland are renowned for corrosion issues!    Had he simply said, the car is 18 years old you're going to expect to have some corrosion at some point, I'd have been a bit more tolerant at that stage. Apon checking the history on the original plates, it transpired it passed the last MOT previous to the most recent one on the same day the advertised plates ran out, I still haven't quite fathomed out what is going on regards to this. However the previous mot showed no corrosion issues and as it hadn't failed on that basis, I would get the panel beater sprayer mentioned in an earlier post to have a look at it, and sort the issues out re that, also the main reason I had the car delivered to my dad's address as that's also the area where the panel beaters business is.  
    • I had a similar thought, TJ. The Guardian has done an explainer of the rules as of yesterday.   Someone said that if the government, had retained public trust, they might not have needed stringent measures like this.   https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/sep/28/england-new-coronavirus-restrictions-explained

    • 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 .

Hi all,

 

I have received the attached letter through the post day before yesterday and this is the first correspondence I have seen of this parking charge so far. 

It seems to me quite aggressive to send 'Notice of Pending Legal Action', but I noted the language used indicates that there should have been previous letters, but this is the first letter I've found since getting back home and opening all my backdated mail.  

 

I've checked the advice for posting a thread on this so here goes:

To add to this, I was not the driver at the time and this letter first made me aware of the charge. 

There is an attached parking receipt from that parking session (all old parking tickets live in the door bin lol)  and the car park apparently operates a 2hr free parking allowance for shoppers as I have recently discovered. 

 

the ticket covered the whole remaining period after that free period. 

However, I seem to be at a disadvantage now as the tone of the letter indicates the appeals period has passed even though I am just aware of this a couple of days ago. 

 

I'm pretty sure this will be sent to a debt collector which would be an annoyance. 

Any advice on how to combat this at this stage? 

Ignore or send an email/letter to Carflow?

 

Any advice would be greatly appreciated. 

Please let me know if any further info is needed and I apologise in advance if I have missed any etiquette in posting a new threat.

well done just about everything we need

you should always create your own thread..

 

onething i'm not understanding after a quick read..

 

are you saying you purchased [paid] for a ticket that covers the period on their demand? 

please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

The person driving at the time informed me that they purchased the ticket which covers the period after the apparent free allowance of 2hrs.  However I'm not crystal clear on this so I'm driving up there tonight to figure this out for myself.  But quick maths on my part gave me the impression that after 2hrs free the £3 paid would more than cover the remaining time.

 

I'll be able to confirm this point when I get over there.  Thanks so much for the quick response :)

Yes the registration is 100% correct in the ticket, I removed it in the attached copy using Acrobat for the whole 'no identifying info' thingy :)

 

So in your experience, at this stage, is it suck it up and pay or ignore them and contend with the debt collectors?  I feel frustrated I now have this bill without a chance to contest or query it.

 

On a side note, I'm sure you (dx) were the one who helped me defeat Lloyds bank years ago on my old CAG account ;)

oh yes

for the minute we need to gather info.

like when they entered the car park

when they purchased the ticket 

how long was the ticket for

exit time.

 

those at present don't easily appear to be clear

but no you don't ever consider paying nor appealing until/if by some remote chance they send a letter of claim.

 

others will help too.

If this is the only correspondence the driver or keeper have received them it will be laughed out of court but lest get all of your info sorted before it gets that far.

can you gte back there and get some photos of the entrance to the land and any signs at the entrance? also any signs around the car aprk and lastly pictures of the ticket machine so we can read any blurb that you read when buyinga  ticket f it is different to the wording on the signage.

With a P&D the blurb on the machine is the contract, not the random signs so most important.no mention of paying them  a fortue for nothing on the machine? then you cant owe them.

 

You have to bear in mind that these companies only make money when someone does something wrong ( in their eyes) so they invent things that arent specifically intended or mentioned and are not arerse to just making stuff up as they know a large proportion will pay up anyway and moan afterwards

Hi Guys,

 

I had a similar problem recently. I parked in this car park and paid for the entire period after the first 90 minutes which was free.

 

The carpark company has contacted me claiming that if you stay over 90 minutes you have to pay for the entire stay. This was not made clear at the time and there was no signage that I could see stating this.

 

The company has subsequently put up additional signage to make this clear but they are still trying to recover the money from me.

 

I have some photographic evidence but it is a close up of the unclear signs and not a wide-shot of the payment machine area, where the new signs are now displayed.

 

Does anyone have any pictures of carpark from 2019/early 2020 that I could use to aid my case?

 

Or, any other advice?

 

I really dont want to pay this ticket as it is unfair but just need to make sure my evidence is watertight.

Hi.

 

The OP may or may not reply to you.

 

As dx says, you need to start your a new thread of your own rather than use one that was started to advise someone else, please.
