    • Is there a reason they took so long to send the PCN? The car was on hire or a change of address perhaps. As they have not claimed to be using POFA it is important that you do not reveal the identity of the driver. No POFA means they cannot pursue the keeper so just ignore everything from them and their unregulated debt collectors and ignorant second rate solicitors. [Sorry that was a slur on second rate solicitors].  Just ignore them all. To go to Court they need the name and address of the driver so if you ignore them there is no chance they will find out. While that does mean that you are not liable to pay them a penny they won't look at it like that and pretend that you do owe them-probably escalating the bill every time they write. This works in your favour as the most that they can ask is the amount on their signage but they always seem to want to overcharge which gets them a slap.  All you have to do is let us know if they stupidly decide to send you a Letter of Claim [it's probably more greed than stupidity but they do both of them so well it is hard to know which one it is.]. If you do get an LBC come back to us so we will give them a snotty reply which may be enough to see them off. In the meantime go on with your life safe in the knowledge that you owe them nothing and there is nothing they can do to change that.
    • I must confess to not even thinking about telling them, especially since I haven't heard anything from them for years, they weren't on my to contact list.   I always come here for advice before I reply and I am certainly not paying anyone unless I have too ( 1 ccj is being paid at £1 a month)    Since getting my head out of the sand I have been very careful on keeping all letters and taking advice before I respond and keeping copies of all correspondence.        
    • images/posts removed . please do not post jpg picture images directly to a post . read upload and redact in jpg then convert using on of the listed websites there to convert to one multipage pdf only . that way only logged-in,registered and approved caggers are the only ones that can download and see them . else anyone can see them caggers or not.     ... also please just type. there is no need to hit quote each time you post.   ........   this is getting to look better for you. but i cant see how just because you collected the car, by default you have to pay to return it... does work like that under contract cancellation as you know.   dx      
    • you must always inform any debt owners of a change of address in writing by royal mail     as for your other accounts being managed by cabot.. i hope you are not blindly paying them anything without checking enforceability first? else this could explain whats going on..they want to mug you on this debt too!    
    • Perry Mason, Honeybee? My  grandmother used to tell me about him.😀   Honeybee is right-it is very informal-no wigs and no hangman's cap. You refer to the Judge as Sir or Madam and they will be in suits as you should be too, plus wearing a tie. Do not interrupt the Judge and always be polite to the Judge.   If Yasmeen does not appear suggest to the Judge that it would be unfair that their brief is allowed to cross examine you since you have been denied the chance to cross examine her and there were many things that required examination in her WS.   Try not to gloat at the end. Good luck.   Do not forget to claim your expenses-time off work, travel, parking and £19 per hour  legal work.

    • 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 .

Hello,

Can someone advise if the attached is a valid charge please? 

I had parked in the car park and paid but then got delayed and have ended up with a ticket for parking longer than I should have done.  

I know they will refuse the appeal but is this charge enforceable?

It's highly doubtful or impossible that it's valid.

 

Please give us the details requested in the forum sticky so we can advise.

Thank you for the information. Please don't appeal, it hardly ever makes things better.

 

I expect the regulars will have questions for you but I have a couple. Can you give us the postcode of the Ice Centre please and also, do you know how long you're allowed to park for?

 

And one other, is the car park just for the Ice Centre or are there other premises that use it?

i will bet that LVRPA have byelaws that over ride any private parking invoices

2. the minimum parking time is not under 2 or 3hrs and no silly PPC can change that.


totally ignore everyone until/unless you get a letter of claim

You were right not to appeal.

There is very little chance of having your PCN cancelled even when your appeal points out the unenforceability of their speculative invoice. What also happens on appeal is that you may reveal that you were the driver which allows them to lawfully pursue you as the driver and thus you losing the cover of the Protection of Freedoms act 2012 as well as obviating the need for them to send you the Notice to Keeper.

 

This has to be sent within a certain period of time and contain certain phrases to allow them to pursue the keeper if they do not know whothe driver was. If the Notice to Keeper  fails the POFA 2012 acid test, and they often do, then they can only pursue the driver for the payment.

 

There are many other factors which prevent parking companies being able to lawfully win in Court against motorists and if you could fill out the form above  from Honeybee13 it will help to swat  CP minus away.

 

The accepted practice is not to appeal unless you have a totally open and shut case which do seem like that with you as yet. 

Let the huff and puff adding evermore unlawful charges to the invoice. {The  £40 can only be charged to the driver, not the keeper and Judges appear to be slapping down the parking companies for their additions  and throwing out those cases.

 

Did you pay anything at all-and if so how long did you pay for.

Alternatively, if you didn't pay how long is the free period. 

 

Assuming that they were ever granted permission to erect signs in the car park, by the Council, and it is by no means certain, Councils usually allow 3 hours parking time so there are a few things that give reason for them having no hope of getting paid by you and it may be that they breached GDPR by even asking the DVLA for your details.

Hello HB, DX and Lookinforinfo,

 

It is the Lee Valley Ice Centre on Lea Bridge Road, E10 7QL.

Thank you for replying. Sorry, this was my daughter and she now states she did not pay any money and there was no signage saying it was a pay and display car park. There were no signs stating how long you could park for or any restrictions on parking. 

 

Thank yoy,

Hello DX,

 

She is probably about 20 minutes away from there.

I have asked her to go there and look at the signage and take photographs as there appears to be a sign in the middle of the car park on Google Maps but that image was taken in 2016 and that sign may have been taken down as a lot of people have stated on TripAdvisor that they got caught out and received parking charge notices as well

Although they certainly do have their own byelaws, these do not appear to cover parking.. Go to the link for on your post #5 and look at the bottom where there is a link to the Byelaws.

My time as a Police Officer and subsequently time working within the Motor Trade gives me certain insights into the problems that consumers may encounter.

I have no legal qualifications.

It seems that your daughter was not alone in missing the parking signs.

 

As she didn't pay and therefore did not accept their terms and conditions she was a tresspasser. Only the landowner can sue her and that won't happen.

 

You will still need pictures of the signage and the blurb on the ticket machine as that used to contradict the signage. When dealing with these crooks you need all the ammunition you can find as lies and cheating are their stock in trade.

 

Just get all your ducks in a row, completely ignoring all their threats and those of their unregulated debt collectors and their worse than useless solicitors. They would be stupid to try and force you to pay and until they do, just ignore all their antics.

i'm not sure if it even matters byelaws do or don't mention parking.....

the fact that a byelaw exist means a PPC are not in any position to dictate anything.

Hello Everyone,

Sorry I have not posted on here for a few days. 

I managed to get to the ice rink this evening and have posted photographs that might help decide if the parking notice should be paid? 

Thank you for replying before and in anticipation of additional help 

 

The first photograph is the exit of the car park, no automatic barrier. I presume the barrier that can be seen is never closed as one of the signs states parking charges are in force for 24 hours a day.

The second photograph is the sign in the car park 

The third photograph is the entry to the car park 

 

Just a thought, I might get a further ticket for going there and not paying again!  : (

I am sorry,

I don't know if I misunderstood,

 

I have taken a screenshot from Google Maps that might clarify.

I had to do a right turn into the ice rink from Lea Bridge Road.

From Lea Bridge Road, there is a small access road that leads you to the ice rink.

 

You can see the sign that is in my photographs on the left as you turn into the access road to the Ice Rink.

 

Once you have turned into this access road which leads to the ice rink you cannot turn back and Lea Bridge Road is a very busy Road, so you cannot reverse out.

 

You have to go into the car park to turn back around and out

In short the NTK is not POFA compliant for more than 1 reason. No-one owes them any money, let alone the keeper.

Read the POFA and you will hopefully work out why

I note that the blurb at the botton about Beavis is not what the judges decided but a cobbled togetherversion to scare you into believeing that this piece of bog paper is somehow legit.

Signage fails to create a contract unless payment machine has the same blurb and you agreed to be bound by feeding the machine. No signs at entrance you see.

Hello DX and Ericsbrother,

 

DX and Ericsbrother,  thank you for the latest replies to this thread.

 

I have read the notice, it is sent to the keeper and not the driver of the vehicle and there is no requirement for the keeper to identify the driver so there is no one left to pursue?

They have obtained information from the DVLA without permission to issue the notice to the keeper. Breach of DPA and GDPR?

There was no notice given to the driver  or anything left under the windscreen to advise them of the failure to pay the correct parking charge.

 

I did not see a payment machine when I went there again yesterday unless it is hidden in a corner somewhere. 

 

I am still not sure about the notice at the entrance, is the large sign not enough or does the sign have to be sited in a place before you actually turn into the access road? 

 

I hope I have understood all this correctly.

The entrance sign has to say more than just informing that it is a private car park. To be able to form a  contract with the motorist it must itemise the rules and charges . Without those details the signis just an inviation to treat and so the motorist  doesn't have to accept the rules that are posted in the car park itself.
