    • Thanks for that. Should I still apply for a time order or just continue to make payments as normal?
    • Autocorrect typo. For “ admission instructive settlement" read "administrative settlement"
    • No such thing as bailiffs in the north anymore. HMRC have certain statutory powers, but obviously, they don't apply here. The legislation is much like the rest of the UK: MB either chases the debt themselves or sells it (or a %age) to a DCA. The DCA has no more rights than the original creditor had. They have to apply for a collection judgment against you through the Enforcement of Judgements Office. Hence @lolerz blunt point that
    • This is the full appeal & response :    You reported that you were the registered keeper but is not prepared to state who was driving at the time the parking charge was issued. You reported that you are being held liable for the parking charge.         You completed the appeal on 09/02/2023 18:19:20. Upon arriving at the shopping centre The driver attempted to park in the disabled bay, which at the time was encroached by another vehicle already parked well outside of their bay, not displaying a badge. Due to the nature of the visit, the driver was required to park promptly and exit the vehicle, whilst displaying the blue disabled badge. Upon appealing, apparently the only thing that matters in this case is the sign post stating the parking bays must be adhered to at all times. Without any recognition for the fact the driver was physically not able to park elsewhere & correctly displayed their blue parking badge     The operator made their Prima Facie Case on 16/02/2023 15:02:06.   The Operator Reported That... The appellant was the driver. The appellant was the keeper. The operator is seeking keeper liability in accordance with PoFA.. ANPR/CCTV was used. The Notice to Keeper was sent on 15/12/2022. A response was received from the Notice to Keeper. The ticket was issued on 09/12/2022. The Notice to Keeper (ANPR) was sent in accordance with PoFA. The charge is based in Contract.   The Operator Made The Following Comments... The vehicle was not parked fully within the confines of a marked parking bay whilst parked in one of the carpark that we manage. Signage displayed throughout the site states "Vehicles to be parked within the confines of a marked parking bay". As the vehicle was in breach of the terms and conditions that are stated on the contractual signage throughout the site, a Parking Charge was issued.  As stated in the NGP initial appeal:  Arrived on site with a disabled passenger & as is visible in photo, we were unable to park in the disabled bay due to the other vehicle in the photo encroaching the disabled bay, meaning my passenger could not physically get out of the vehicle if we had parked between the marked lines. Please see photo for proof of blue badge & photo of parking on the day. Blue badge was displayed whilst parked.  >> We would just like to clarify that upon receiving their appeal, we reviewed the CCTV footage from the date in question and at no point did a passenger leave the vehicle nor is the keeper mentioning these facts to this IAS appeal.  We note that during the appeal process that we were provided with a disabled badge, but not the full badge showing whose badge this belongs to. Nevertheless the driver failed to correctly park within confines of the bay.  However for the IAS adjudicators viewing only we have attached a file titled "PCN 400786" This file shows the events that occurred with the driver on this date.  Please see file titled "Malpas Road Shopping Park" which shows what the signage looks like onsite.  Please see the file titled "Vehicle Location" which shows where the vehicle was parked and where the signage was located near by.         I am satisfied that the Appellant was parked in an area where the Operator has authority to issue Parking Charge Notices and to take the necessary steps to enforce them. A number of images, including a site map have been provided to me by the Operator which shows the signage displayed on this site. After viewing those images I am satisfied that the signage is sufficient to have brought to the attention of the Appellant the terms and conditions that apply to parking on this site.  The signage at this site makes it clear that parking is on private land and that vehicles must be parked wholly within the confines of a marked parking bay and that a failure to comply with that term and condition will result in the issuing of a Parking Charge Notice. I can see from the photographs provided that the Appellant was not parked within the confines of a marked bay, which the Appellant accepts. Whilst I appreciate the circumstances raised by the Appellant, mitigating/extenuating circumstances cannot be taken into account. Simply by parking outside of a marked bay the Appellant breached the displayed terms and conditions and as such I am satisfied that the PCN was correctly issued on this occasion. I have considered all the issues raised by both parties in this Appeal and I am satisfied that the Operator has established that the Parking Charge Notice was properly issued in accordance with the law and therefore this Appeal is dismissed.  Currently appealed 400786 Issued on 09/12/2022 by New Generation Parking Management Ltd to vehicle registration Originally rejected by operator on 02/02/2023

    • Hello,

      On 15/1/24 booked appointment with Big Motoring World (BMW) to view a mini on 17/1/24 at 8pm at their Enfield dealership.  

      Car was dirty and test drive was two circuits of roundabout on entry to the showroom.  Was p/x my car and rushed by sales exec and a manager into buying the mini and a 3yr warranty that night, sale all wrapped up by 10pm.  They strongly advised me taking warranty out on car that age (2017) and confirmed it was honoured at over 500 UK registered garages.

      The next day, 18/1/24 noticed amber engine warning light on dashboard , immediately phoned BMW aftercare team to ask for it to be investigated asap at nearest garage to me. After 15 mins on hold was told only their 5 service centres across the UK can deal with car issues with earliest date for inspection in March ! Said I’m not happy with that given what sales team advised or driving car. Told an amber warning light only advisory so to drive with caution and call back when light goes red.

      I’m not happy to do this, drive the car or with the after care experience (a sign of further stresses to come) so want a refund and to return the car asap.

      Please can you advise what I need to do today to get this done. 
       

      Many thanks

    • We have finally managed to obtain the transcript of this case.

      The judge's reasoning is very useful and will certainly be helpful in any other cases relating to third-party rights where the customer has contracted with the courier company by using a broker.
      This is generally speaking the problem with using PackLink who are domiciled in Spain and very conveniently out of reach of the British justice system.

      Frankly I don't think that is any accident.

      One of the points that the judge made was that the customers contract with the broker specifically refers to the courier – and it is clear that the courier knows that they are acting for a third party. There is no need to name the third party. They just have to be recognisably part of a class of person – such as a sender or a recipient of the parcel.

      Please note that a recent case against UPS failed on exactly the same issue with the judge held that the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 did not apply.

      We will be getting that transcript very soon. We will look at it and we will understand how the judge made such catastrophic mistakes. It was a very poor judgement.
      We will be recommending that people do include this adverse judgement in their bundle so that when they go to county court the judge will see both sides and see the arguments against this adverse judgement.
      Also, we will be to demonstrate to the judge that we are fair-minded and that we don't mind bringing everything to the attention of the judge even if it is against our own interests.
      This is good ethical practice.

      It would be very nice if the parcel delivery companies – including EVRi – practised this kind of thing as well.

numerous of these above get reading all of them.

 

9/10 SW don't have a clue the claim has been raised.

 

pay PARTICULAR ATTENTION to the threads whereby part of the claimed sum is statute barred, they can only claimback 6yrs from the date of the claim.

you are both jointly responsible, you must EACH do everything the other does, AOS,CPR,N180,N157,WS etc etc.

 

I would closely follow the recommended actions in the threads above

1st port of call is a CPR 31:14 each and get on the phone to SW tomorrow {NOT SHULMANS!!) 

also don't forget the water aid scheme too.

 

why has your ex not been ever paying the water bills?

why has your ex not been ever paying the water bills?

My ex has ongoing mental heath issues. 

 

We moved into the address March 2009:

After 3 months my daughter and I had to seek refuge from her mother(my ex).

 

We were asked to return for a few months in 2010.

Had to flee again soon after.

I had set up all other utilities right at the start, had to flee before getting round to arranging WS utility.

I assumed that she had set it up, in her own right. 

 

AOS,CPR,N180,N157,WS etc etc.

I have been very ill over the past couple of days with COPD strapped to an oxygen bottle.

Anything I should not say to Southern Water when I can contact them?

 

I used to be much better at this, any quick links to templates for the above please?

 

My ex has had a letter yesterday from Shulmans (addressed to both of us) asking to arrange a settlement to avoid judgement.

I have spoken to her to say do not contact them to respond.

 

Thanks

So.......Just spent the last 35 minutes on the phone to Southern Water Services (allegedly),

operator took details accessed Water account confirmed some details

(nothing apparently on Southern Water account/customer system regards any pending legal action) (operator suggested that my ex partner is charged just 20% of any rate)

 

then responded to my request to attempt to speak with their Litigation department.

Put on hold for 5 minutes.

Then given a number to ring.

Number discontinued.

Redirected to the same number I called originally.

 

Again put on hold....when answered by alleged litigation department,

I gave what I believe was a valid customer number,

they insisted on a customer reference number, which I seemingly don't have.

 

They wanted to know if I had legal proof that I do not live at claim address.

I do but can't provide such proof without going back to court to grant disclosure.

 

after some toing and froing it became clear that I was talking to someone (possibly firewalling) at UK Search.

At this point I politely ended the call,

restating that I had asked to speak directly with someone at Southern Water suggesting I would seek out alternative approach.

 

Attempting to get my ex to undertake exactly what I do will be pretty difficult.

I will do my best though.

 

I will now complete the CPR 31:14 which I am assuming I should fire off to Shulmans.

Copy to Southern Water??

 

Not sure, need advice.

Please treat this letter as my request made under CPR 31.14 for the disclosure and the production of a verified and legible copy of [each of the following / the] document(s) mentioned in your Particulars of Claim:

 

There are no documents mentioned in their POC. Should I simply  delete:

mentioned in your Particulars of Claim:

 

Then? Just list and request copies of all Bills/Invoices, statements of accounts, Calculations of water consumption/sewage disposal. Copies of all written/ recorded comunications undertaken between Southern Water Services Limited conducted or addressed to myself and the co-defendant in this case.

Okey doke.

Which address do I use?

The address used on the claim form?

 

Then request at the end to send all paperwork to my current address?

 

Or both?

Yes. I haven't lived at the address on the claimform since effectively 2009/10.

I remain on the council tenancy aggreement of address on claimform due to Family Court Orders granted in 2011. It's complicated I'd guess.  Not much I can say on an open forum to be honest.

 

Form a my previous post:

They wanted to know if I had legal proof that I do not live at claim address.

I do but can't provide such proof without going back to court to grant disclosure.

then how did you get the claimform then?
your oh sent it to you.?

 

you MUST update MCOL with your correct address

and always use your correct address on anything sent to any of the players in your claim.

 

the same applies for your OH.

you can send stuff upon her behalf but ofcourse when it comes to signing things like the N180 and your witness statements, she will need to sign hers.
