    • Hi.   SJP = Single Justice Procedure. Here's some reading for you https://www.gov.uk/single-justice-procedure-notices   If you want to ask for an out of court settlement, you need to deal with TfL. You could write to them if you have a contact name, there are examples of letters in threads here.   HB
    • Hi,  I have sent email requesting information as to why my original email was not actioned. I did have the case number in the subject line on my email.  I only got a letter from registry trust, nothing else from courts or Shoosmiths thanks 
    • @dx100uk  I have received only the charge for this journey.  Sorry for my ignorance but what is a SJP?  the charge has been made at 21 june  2020 but I received this only yesterday. Now they ask me to make my plea and I have 21 days to do so, but I want to try an out of court settlement. There is not any court date on the papers they sent me now though. 
    • Licensing is only required for quite serious breeders who keep multiple breeding dogs, some perfectly good breeders don’t need a license and some dreadful ones are licensed so it’s something of a red herring.   What breed is the pup?  You don’t say and this ‘breeder’ doesn’t sound like a breeder at all from your post.  That said, they seem to have been quite responsible in that the pup was vet checked and vaccinated before you took it.   Has your insurance company confirmed this was a pre-existing condition they won’t cover?
    • Your puppy is certainly subject to the consumer rights act because it is classed as "goods". You don't say when you bought it – you simply say "recently". I'm not too certain what the law is relating to commercial breeders. You say that this person is a home breeder. Is there any distinction? Should they have had a licence? There are two issues here. First of all – and probably most important – you are talking about the health of the puppy. You may not have the resources but it seems to me that it's important to get this addressed as quickly as possible – both for the sake the puppy and also for your own sake because if you end up having to pay out of your own pocket, according to you is going to get a lot more expensive. If the tooth is causing the puppy any pain or discomfort or any difficulties then it seems to me that you have a clear duty to get it sorted out as quickly as possible. You made the decision to purchase a puppy rather than go to a rescue home – where these kinds of things would have been sorted out – and you obviously made your own decision to go to a breeder who you knew was unlicensed – and am afraid that all of the baggage your filing now probably comes with those decisions. On the consumer rights issue, it seems to me that you have a clear case – regardless of the consumer rights act – because whether the breeder was a home breeder or not, licensed or not, it is clear that the money they were charging – it was done as a matter of trade. You say that this person is a home breeder – and I understand that the rules are that if you read a certain number of letters per year and sell a number of pups then you do need a licence. I suppose you will have to make your own discreet enquiries to discover whether in fact this person is actually operating as a commercial unlicensed breeder. It's not terribly relevant to your case – but on the other hand it would add leverage to your position. I think the way forward for you is to get two independent quotations for the veterinary work which needs doing and then write to the breeder giving them both independent quotations and telling them that because you have the interests of the puppy in mind you are going directly to have the work done by the cheapest quote. Because of the breeder's attitude so far I would include this in a letter of claim. I don't think that there is any room for mucking around with the welfare of animals – especially when they are being used to make profits. That means that you would send the breeder the two quotes, tell them the date on which the work is going to be done, point out to them that has so far they have been completely uncooperative and refused to get involved that you are now sending them a letter of claim and that you will issue a claim within 14 days unless they pay in full for all the treatment and any ancillary treatment. In other words you make it clear to them that the sum you are claiming for the media work may not be the end of the matter and that you hold them responsible as a dog breeder – commercial or not, licensed or not, for the welfare in good health of their animals. Frankly I think you should tell them that you are going to report the matter to the RSPCA – and if you care about your animals – and the others that are being produced by this breeder – then I think that this is exactly what you should do. I think you should also ask the breeder if you can have any tax receipts for the £1200 which you paid. It wouldn't at all surprised me if this breeder has received the money – effectively cash in hand. You should ask them for a VAT invoice or else an undertaking that they are exempt. We will help you all the way here – but I'm going to say once again, that I think your first priority is to get the work done. I'm sorry that you decided to buy a puppy – when there are so many in rescue centres – although maybe not as pretty looking is the one that you have. I'm afraid that this is the kind of thing which encourages "home breeders" and breeders generally – and particularly with unlicensed breeders – it means that they more likely to be sloppy and uncaring about the welfare of the animals they produce. I think you should tell us more about "Vets4Pets".  It seems to me that they haven't done a very good job either – and I would be writing to them and asking them how come they have managed to carry out this assessment of your animal and yet they have missed this important defect. I think it's important that pressure is put on them as well to smarten up their act. Please will you tell us the name of the home breeder.   I hope this advice has been helpful to you. I'm sure that some of my comments have made uncomfortable reading – but as I say, we will help you all the way and I think you should start acting straightaway in the interests of your puppy – which doesn't deserve any of this

    • Hi,  
      I was in Sainsbury’s today and did scan and shop.
      I arrived in after a busy day at work and immediately got distracted by the clothes.
       
      I put a few things in my trolley and then did a shop.
      I paid and was about to get into my car when the security guard stopped me and asked me to come back in.
       
      I did and they took me upstairs.
      I was mortified and said I forgot to scan the clothes and a conditioner, 5 items.
      I know its unacceptable but I was distracted and Initially hadn’t really planned to use scan and shop.
       
      No excuse.
      I offered to pay for the goods but the manager said it was too late.
      He looked at the CCTV and because I didn’t try to scan the items he was phoning the police.
       
      The cost of the items was about £40.
      I was crying at this point and told them I was a nurse, just coming from work and I could get struck off.
       
      They rang the police anyway and they came and issued me with a community resolution notice, which goes off my record in a year.
      I feel terrible. I have to declare this to my employer and NMC.
       
      They kept me in a room on my own with 4 staff and have banned me from all stores.
      The police said if I didn’t do the community order I would go to court and they would refer me to the PPS.
       
      I’m so stressed,
      can u appeal this or should I just accept it?
       
      Thanks for reading

Parking eye CCJ - refused to accept payment

Recommended Posts

Hello, 

 

I am just after a bit of advice. 

 

Last year I received a parking ticket from Parking eye, I disputed this at the time and it was rejected as I have read they very rarely admit defeat and cancel parking tickets. 

 

I received a "settlement" offer from them for £100 I explained at the time that I had just been made redundant and I was unable to pay the £100 in one lump sum but I was more than happy to pay over 4 months of £25 to have this matter taken care of, their emails back were shockingly rude and they denied the offer, they even included in one email the below sentence. Despite my previous emails accepting the charge and wanting to pay it off. 

 

"We can confirm that we maintain our position that the full amount of the Parking Charge remains outstanding and that we have been unable to reach an agreement in respect of the same via the Reply Form."

 

They then decided to stop communicating with me all together to settle this matter, the never responded to my last email leaving me in a "limbo" position.

They then decided to take it to court and issue a CCJ.

I have contacted them today to arrange to pay the £197 in two payment and have this cleared by May. 

 

Has anyone put in an official complaint to anyone regarding Parking eye, if so who and how?

 

I understand they legally did not have to accept my offer of 4 payments,

I had lost my job due to health reasons,

I was willing to send them copies of my P45 and final payslip so they could see my financial position but they rejected it all and dealt with my emails in a manner that I would never dream of doing.  

 

If I am being honest I am a little miffed that they have put me in a worse position despite my efforts to work with them.

 

Thanks in advance for any help.

Please can you be clear what your current position is?

 

Are PE threatening court action?

 

Have they gone further and issued a claimform?

 

Or have things moved on even more and they have beaten you in court and got a CCJ?

The have already issued it to a court and the CCJ was awarded, which is why I have offered the two payments in April and May to have the CCJ "satisfied" 

 

I am now back in employment so in a position to clear this off.

Can I ask why you didn't defend the action or alternatively admit the debt and offer a payment scheme when the claimform arrived?

 

Most importantly, when do you have to pay the CCJ by?  If you miss that deadline you're stuck with it for six years, even if you pay the sum later.

I done both of those things. I firstly tried to fight the initial ticket as I thought it was a Manchester City Council parking space as it was 4am in the morning on a October when it was pitch black and their parking sign was not lit (in Manchester you can park free between 8pm - 8am) they rejected this. 

 

I then offered to pay the £100 in 4 installments of £25, as I said above, they rejected this. I had no job at the time due to health reasons so as I explained to them paying the £100 in one lump sum was not an option for me as I didn't have that disposable income. 

 

The 1 month has already passed to have the CCJ cleared, I can now only have it satisfied, which is better than having it as an outstanding default. 

 

Do you know who I am best putting an official complaint in too or the best way to deal with their initial ignorance to me trying to make the payment of £100?

All I know about PPCs is how to fight their tickets, I'm afraid I know very little about complaints.  They have a trade association, the BPA, but that would be a bit like complaining to an association of burglars about the dishonest behaviour of a burglar.

 

Hold fire and see what the experts say tomorrow.

 

BTW, what do you hope to achieve now?  Given that the 30 days have passed and you're stuck with the CCJ, at least if you don't pay you deprive PE of their dishonest gains.

I am trying to sort a mortgage out and I have been advised that although it shows on my credit file it has a slightly better impact if it is settled or satisfied instead of being a default, I can then also get the certificate from the courts when it is paid. 

 

I was hoping that there was an official organisation to lodge a complaint with, I hate that these companies think they can talk to you like s**t and get away with it. They put in an email " we refuse to correspond with you further" and the stopped all communication without actually accepting or denying my offer of 4 payments, they said that "we have failed to reach an agreement in respect to the full amount" I never questioned the full amount, so how can we have failed to reach an agreement on something when it was never the issue? 

 

If I didn't need my credit file to be in some for of respectable state then trust me, they wouldn't be getting a penny! I have better things to spend £197 on.

There still may be grounds for set aside if you can put up an argument to challenge, lack of legibility and inadequate signage is one. You need the CCJ removing, the refusal of offers to pay in instalments would also go against Parking Eye, who are owned by Capita, same people who run TV Licensing for BBC, council offices and also own bailiff companies

I dont remember receiving a claim form, they mentioned a claim form "follow the instructions provided with the claim form, wherein you may make payment or submit a defence" I am guessing this would have been posted out? Can I request a copy of this via email? 

 

I didn't know I had a CCJ until I checked my credit file, no paperwork has been received for that. 

 

When I am on my laptop I will upload what little documention I have.

I've just logged into their online portal to screen shot the pictures of my car and surprisingly the images are no longer available.

nothing is going to happen quick

and the fact that their parent co. own bailiff co's is pretty much immaterial, even outside of the current climate we are in.

 

give northants bulk a ring

ask for a copy of the CLaimform AND the judgement CCJ by email PDF.

if they say they don't have a copy of the claimform 

get then to read out the particulars of claim and the address it was sent too

Yes get the details asked for, and it can be looked at in more detail, as to where a challenge lies.

you would have got a large brown envelope from Northampton County court bulk centre containing a N1 claim form with notes on how to fill out the form along with the date it must be returned by.

 

did you get that at all or did you fill it out with the confusing waffle you have indicated here and then lost by either default of for not actually filing a defence and admitting you owe the money.

 

how you approach the problem will depend on what exactly you did or didnt do.

I emailed the courts before writing the original post to request a copy of all paperwork. Ive been told it could be a 10 day response. 

 

I haven't moved since 1998, I've searched all my saved docs (in the past 5 years I tend to scan and save all post that is deemed important)

 

I have either not received the original paperwork or god knows misplaced it perhaps.

 

As I have previous said in my "confusing waffle" I didn't know I had a CCJ until checking my credit file. 

 

It was only from searching my emails I found the ones from Parking Eye threatening the action.

so offer us some clarity on what you have and a timeline of events.

places,

dates,

what correspondence you have and from/to whom etc.

 

Before they issued a claim they have to send out a LBA so you should have got that and it should be clear as to what it was.

 

Send a SAR to PE so you can get copies of all they hold on you and that should include details about their claim so you can compare it to what you get from court.

 

Was it your current vehicle?

 

was it actually your parking event?

Sorry for the later reply. Life seems to have spiralled with everything going on. 

 

I have been relentless with Parking eye,

I got a friend of mine to offer a little legal advice,

mock up a letter acting on my behalf (he is a qualified solicitor but mainly deals with bankruptcy )

 

He asked for all documentation relating to the claim made against myself, all court paper work and evidence that this was posted to myself at the time.

 

They were unable to provide half of what he asked for,

he has since replied asking what evidence they supplied to the court if they are unable to supply me with all documentation.

We are now waiting for their response on this. 

 

I have still not made any payments towards them and I have sent a letter to the court that the CCJ was issued with all correspondence between myself and parking eye.

I am not sure if they will respond to this but I thought it best to cover all corners. 

 

I am being optimistic on this!

Thank you all for your help.

 

I sometimes would be lost without this forum as I have nothing but motor problems and you always offer sound advice and support.

sent PE an sar as already advised

'a letter' is not good enough..

 

they must comply fully to an sar request , else it opens the window for you to start legal proceedings to force them too.

 

had you sent the sar 2mts ago when told too, you would already be in that position not twiddling your thumbs and could issue a court claim today as it's now 2mts later.... 

 

you also need to answer post 16 from EB too..
