    • Small attachment to an iPhone that cost £288.00.   I know anything that relates to Apple can be very expensive, but what was the attachment ?   Did you return the attachment product in its original packaging ?   How often do you buy products from Amazon ?   How often do you return products to Amazon ?   Could Amazon believe you are buying products to simply try out for a period, with no intention of keeping the products ?
    • So I make a post and ask you some questions and you then go in and make a response which deals with something completely different and which ignores the questions which I have asked completely. I don't see how we can move forward on that basis
    • Thank you. First of all, this is not chronology so we don't have any sense of the timeline. It's still rather complicated – but maybe when you produce a chronology it will come more into focus. However, there are a few things that we can start to tease out. You say that you accepted £250 in an offer which was intended to reflect distress. Although you say that you accepted this offer mistakenly, it may well be that you have no further rights on this issue because of course it would have been up to you to understand the situation properly before accepting any kind of financial offer. However, it would be useful to understand the reach of this offer and so please could you post up the offer letter by uploading it in PDF format. You say that "high-volume messaging" is not explicitly covered in the terms and conditions – but there may be references to "fair use policy" and it may be an interpretive problem rather than looking for words which specifically match your situation. So it will be helpful to know what words Vodafone were relying upon and also what was the extent of your high-volume messaging. Did they give you any warnings. You say that they referred to terms and conditions which you did not sign. However, it isn't necessary to sign terms and conditions. We would have to understand more about the context – but generally speaking if there is an agreement which refers to terms and conditions from the outset and you then embark upon the agreement and use the services, then all the signs would be that you've accepted the conditions of use. Signed written terms and conditions are generally speaking only required in contracts for property or copyright or shares. You say that the contract was put in your sole name despite the fact that the company name was on the agreement. We don't have a chronology so we don't see how long this went on for and you don't explain why you didn't raise any objections to this – or maybe you did? You say that you have sent Vodafone and Lowell an SAR but "so far" you are waiting for a response. This suggests that you sent the SAR some time ago – but you haven't told us anything about when this might have happened. You are referring to obligations under the Consumer Rights Act but I'm afraid that these obligations refer to contracts between a trader and a consumer – and you are not trading as a consumer so these probably wouldn't apply to you. Finally, you are worried about expressing a claim in legal language. If you begin a small claim then you certainly don't need any legal language – and in fact that kind of approach simply gets in the way. Also, it seems to me that you are gearing up to bring a court claim – which is fine, in my book – but you haven't identified your cause or causes of action and you don't have a plan. I think we need to slow down and have a more careful and methodical look at the situation. Otherwise you're simply going to find yourself in trouble
    • Late to this, sorry - my wife claims contributory ESA and got her P60 about two weeks ago. Now I know she's overpaid on her tax and I'm just waiting for HMRC (the department I currently work for) to figure it out. They owe her about £150.

UKCPS "no stopping" charge @ Manchester Piccadilly

Recommended Posts

I have received 2 of these UKCPS "no stopping" charges at Manchester Piccadilly for instances in Oct & Nov.


I am not paying, They will have to take me to court to get anything out of me.


Have now received "Final Notice Letter" with charge now at £130.

They threaten "enforcement action which could include County Court proceedings" if there is a failure to pay.


Should it come to this, any advice how to proceed ? 

Googling "UKCPS Piccadilly" comes up with other forums on this topic, looks like the practice only started here in Oct, and many others have been caught.


Seems elsewhere UKCPS do have a track record of taking people to court, so for sure they're much more experienced than me in these things ! 


Any suggestion or advice would be much appreciated.

Hi dx100uk,

Thanks for the search suggestion - working my way thru those.

About the letter of claim link, I have a few points...

1. this dates back to 2013, is this still current ? have there not been any changes to the law/procedure since ?

2. the process outlined is for someone bringing a claim, but I am bracing myself to defend a claim against me - is there a different write-up from the defensive position perspective ?

3. has anyone done a summary of recent (say last 12-18 months) court cases regarding parking charges on private land ? And specifically, when the case involved "not stopping" ?

4. can you expand a bit on your byelaws rule statement ? I know they do, but would like to know which one I am relying on!


(I will post particulars in few days time, I am away from home right now) 


Thanks for your attention !!

 the claim is supposedly for a breach of contract and that contract is an agreement between the parking co and the driver for PARKING.


No stopping isnt a parking event,

the sigange saying this is prohibitive so no offer of anything to you from the parking co.


You are allowed 10 minutes to stop, get out of the car, read the signs and decide if you want to be bound by the terms offered and the drive off if you dont


so how are you supposed to do all of this if the sign says no stopping but you have to stop and read it?


The courts are clear on this and as long as you dont play the parking co's game you wont go wrong
