    • What the administrators are saying is that unsecured creditors, as you are for the £807, will receive nothing. If they used the £807 to reduce a different debt you owe to Unclebuck that would be the the same thing as paying you £807. Legally and financially reducing a different debt by £807 is exactly the same thing as paying you £807 in cash. The administrators are not allowed by law to do that. Frustrating for you I know, but the Administrators are correct.
    • The repossession people didn’t even knock on my door, I was home with my 2 children we would of heard, They took my car with bank card, shop keys and valuables in which I needed, if they had of knocked I would of sorted the money while they were there.    I will check bill of sale when I am back home will it be original one or should I have got another one?    as the paper work I have certainly doesn’t match. I did agree to lower amount but expected new paper work to sign which never come.

    • Hi @BankFodder
      Sorry for only updating you now, but after your guidance with submitting the claim it was pretty straight forward and I didn't want to unnecessarily waste your time. Especially with this guide you wrote here, so many thanks for that
      So I issued the claim on day 15 and they requested more time to respond.
      They took until the last day to respond and denied the claim, unsurprisingly saying my contract was with Packlink and not with them.
       
      I opted for mediation, and it played out very similarly to other people's experiences.
       
      In the first call I outlined my case, and I referred to the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 as the reason to why I do in fact have a contract with them. 
       
      In the second call the mediator came back with an offer of the full amount of the phone and postage £146.93, but not the court costs. I said I was not willing to accept this and the mediator came across as a bit irritated that I would not accept this and said I should be flexible. I insisted that the law was on my side and I was willing to take them to court. The mediator went back to Hermes with what I said.
       
      In the third call the mediator said that they would offer the full amount. However, he said that Hermes still thought that I should have taken the case against Packlink instead, and that they would try to recover the court costs themselves from Packlink.
       
      To be fair to them, if Packlink wasn't based in Spain I would've made the claim against them instead. But since they are overseas and the law lets me take action against Hermes directly, it's the best way of trying to recover the money.
       
      So this is a great win. Thank you so much for your help and all of the resources available on this site. It has helped me so much especially as someone who does not know anything about making money claims.
       
      Many thanks, stay safe and have a good Christmas!

Parking Control Management invoice for moving house


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, hope you can help and check my letter and offer any guidance I may have missed or messed up - been  careful not to say who was the driver here as well as on letter so hope it still makes sense 

 

SUMMARY - 

 

  • Moving my sister out of her flat in Southampton a PCM employee (warden type) turned up as the parties involved were moving furniture into the hire van and the registered keeper's vehicle.
  •  

Tailgates were open and on the incident in question an employee (warden type) of PCM approached the "driver" & my sister (leaseholder) loading the van and car heavy furniture and after explaining it was being loaded for moving home she advised the vehicles could stay and load up and walked off. Her English was not great however, it must be said.

 

  • The employee returned later on while the driver was continuing to load in the back of the van and alleged vehicle, she took a picture of the car and when asked what she was doing went back on her original statement saying now it was not between the lines either and was issuing a "ticket"

Both vehicles were stopped loading up in the same way.

 

  • Their own photographic evidence actually clearly shows the box van and the alleged vehicle with its tail gate open as it was being loaded. 
  •  

The attached photo also shows the van for loading at the same time and across the lines, however, it has been issued no such NTD or NTK.

Either so called "rules"  apply equally or they don’t.

 

  • The vehicle was moved immediately as the employee returned as she had tried to sneak up to the vehicle and he saw her in the reflection of the building windows just as the driver was loading the vehicles up.

 

  • The employee then changed their earlier statement “allowing” loading so they moved it into the roadway upon hearing this,

 

but the employee then came onto the street in the roadway which is not within the land being discussed and tried to push an NTD into their hand demanding they take it. They refused to accept it from her hand .

 

 

  • So this week -NTK letter dated 13/01/202021 alleges that a PCN was affixed to the windscreen of the vehicle at 12:14 in Southbrook Rise SO15.

 

No NTD (PCN) invoice was affixed to the windscreen of the vehicle as the driver moved it into the road when realised she was trying to issue a penalty charge.

 

PCM may have issued a PCN but as no such NTD was put on the vehicle as the PCM employee of the company walked off from the driver of the vehicle on that day.

 

So I've also objected to their request for details as was made beyond the 14 day time limit as the registered keeper had no PCN affixed to their vehicle to examine.

 

Most of all I have used the other standard objections in Parking Cowboys template but after bit of googling also the case of Jopson v Homeguard (2016) as the homeowner was being assisted in loading her chattels into  van and the alleged vehicle as being moved house and that has been established as clear legitimate reasons for using a residents car park in law.

 

Have attached the pictures they sent me - have attached my initial reply letter here but will put on next post in full so it's not too much to read on this post too 

 

thanks in advance 

 

and here's the text from my first challenge letter to PCM  - red bits I'm not sure whether apply - PCM are an IAS member not POPLA

As your description of the incident shows, PCM are a bunch of crooks who think up any excuse to pursue motorists for money that isn't owed.

 

So think things through.  If you send them a "formal challenge", do you really think they'll accept it and stop being crooks?  Of course not, they won't even read it.

 

Sending what you have drafted is, at best, a waste of time.  At worst you could come across as someone who doesn't know the law who PCM will then be more likely to pursue.

 

Simply sit back, relax & ignore whatever tripe they send you.  But never ignore a Letter Before Claim/Letter Before Action, come back here if PCM eventually reach this stage.

We could do with some help from you.

Thanks, 

 

To add more background, I don't make a habit of parking anywhere I want, I live in rural Devon where we don't have as much of this type of set up and had one POPLA appeal upheld when my OH overstayed in LIdl  with Parking Eye.

 

This lot aren't in BPA and all the residents there are at odds with them, they get spurious tickets themselves when parked sometimes at

4 a.m  and told me the the employee who tried to give it out was crazy and doesn't listen and did similar to him.

 

When my sister first parked agents didn't issue her a permit so she got one, when she used my parents car they got one.

So far they have ignored all letters sent to them and put in a file that's been quite a while now.

 

I'll have a think, information and advice on here can conflict with othersites so it's hard as a layman to know what to do.

the reason why it conflicts or differs is we didn't let people throw the kitchen sink in early, thus alerting the fleecers you are wise to their games. it plays all you cards early then they know what your witness statement will be from day one, should it ever get to court, and then you have no surprises to throw at them. because they have had upwards of a year to counter them and change signs, contracts and other important things regarding the chance of them winning.

 

the other major error with this is 9/10 on those sites you then get people behind the scenes offering to help you do defences and be your court friend for upto £400 because you've sent such twaddle.

 

play the innocent joe public card till the time comes.

UPDATE: 

I have received the Notice to Liability to Keeper letter after 56 days.

 

Now,

I know I'm ignoring them personally till letter of claim but my father said straight away to put in his name as they have had past dealings with these clowns and has a file of letters from them and ignored throughout.

 

He is happy for me to add this to his name so do I return this with his name on now OR continue to ignore?

 

Many thanks

Sorry you may have misunderstood me, he hasn't advised anything at all -

apart from being happy to admit being the driver rather than me. 

 

This is as they have had the same notices for their own car when my sister borrowed it parked it at her address & he has filed in the cabinet several notices from them over a couple of years now and not paid a penny farthing.

 

They (parents) said were happy to take it over from me and just put them as the driver as they'd file it with all the other rubbish they've had from PCM.

 

That's all I was asking

 

TY

Their PCN is wrong. They state that they are able to add extra charges even when they are pursuing you as the keeper. 

Could you also please post up the windscreen PCN and I don't suppose you have pictures of them trying to give you that PCN when  not on relevant  land. I know it is a bit of a long shot.

thanks Honeybee, that's all I wanted to know.

 

Lookforinfo I don't have the window PCN, I moved it into street before she could put it on there and refused it when she tried to get me to take it.

 

No sadly no pics  I was on my own when she was trying to give it to me in the street/on public highway

 

thanks
