    • I have never heard of any such law. Please post a link to what you have read online that explains this law. And please confirm whether you were ever married to or in a formal Civil Partnership with your Ex.
    • Today has been hectic so  have been unable to complete the whole thing. If you now understand it and want to go ahead with a complaint to the IPC, fine. If not then I won't need to finish it. But below is my response to your request  on post 64. No you don't seem stupid, the Protection of Freedoms Act isn't easy to get one 's head around at first. The part of the above Act referring to private parking is contained within Schedule 4 which you can find online under the Protection of Freedoms Act 2012. Section 9 of SCH.4 relates to how the parking scrotes have to perform so that they can transfer their right to pursue the keeper from the driver when the PCN is still unpaid after a certain amount of time. In your case the PCN was posted to you the keeper and arrived within 14 days from when they claimed a breach occurred. That means they complied with first part of the Act. The driver at that time was still responsible to pay the charge demanded on the PCN and PCM now have to wait for 28 days to elapse before they can write and advise the keeper that as the charge has not been paid, that they now have the right to pursue the keeper. They claim they sent the first PCN on the 13th March, five days after the alleged breach and it arrived on Friday 15th March. So to comply with the Act they have to observe Section 8 subsection 2f   (f)warn the keeper that if, after the period of 28 days beginning with the day after that on which the notice is given— (i)the amount of the unpaid parking charges specified under paragraph (d) has not been paid in full, and (ii)the creditor does not know both the name of the driver and a current address for service for the driver, the creditor will (if all the applicable conditions under this Schedule are met) have the right to recover from the keeper so much of that amount as remains unpaid. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------So the first PCN was deemed to arrive on the 15th March and for 28 days to have elapsed is when the time is right for them to write and say you are now liable as keeper. So they sent the next PCN on the 12th April which is too early as you could still have paid until midnight of the 12th. So the earliest their second PCN should have gone to you was  Saturday 13th April so more likely on Monday 15th April. The IPC Code of Conduct states "Operators must be aware of their legal obligations and implement the relevant legislation and guidance when operating their businesses." So by issuing your demand a day early, they have broken the Act, the IPC Code of Conduct, the DVLA agreement  to abide by the law and the Code of Conduct not to mention a possible breach of your GDPR .   I asked the IPC  in the letter on an earlier to confirm that  CPMs Notice misrepresenting the law was a standard practice for all of PCMs Notices or just certain ones. Their distribution  may depend on when they were issued and whether they were issued in certain localities or for certain breaches. Whichever method used is a serious breach of the Law and could lead to PCM being black listed by the DVLA . One would expect that after that even if the IPC did not cancel your ticket, PCM could not risk going to Court with you nor even pursuing you any further.
    • thanks jk2054 - do you know any law i can quote (regarding timeframe) when sending the email as if i cant they'll probably just say no like the normal staff have done? thanks.
    • I lived there with her up until I gave notice. She took over the tenancy in her name. I had a letter from the council and a refund of the council tax for 1 month.    She took on the bills and tenancy and only paid the rent. No utility bills or council tax were paid once she took it over. She will continue to not pay bills in her new house which I'm now having to pay or will have to. I have looked online I believe the police and solicitors are going by the partner law to make me liable.   I have always paid my bills and ensured her half was paid then see how much free money is over.   She spends all her money on payday loans and rubbish then panics about the rent. I usually end up paying it or having to get her a loan.   Stupidly in my name but at the time it was because she was my partner. I even paid to move her and clean and decorate her old house so she got the deposit back. It cost me £3000 due to the mess she always leaves behind.

    • 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.

Hi there,

 

received a letter from DWP out the blue , I am actually awaiting word from a Mandatory Reconsideration for PIP, which I sent in with a letter from my OT nurse etc, then in pops this letter, I also claim support group ESA, so I am at a loss as to why or what this is.

 

Can anyone help,

I do realise in current climate everything is done by phone, but sending me this with a date and time for 2 weeks a way I think is quite cruel, and stressful, I so wish they'd just rang me up.

 

I thought possibly they had a few more questions re my PIP Reconsideration, but on calling my local Advice shop they told me they didn't think that was the reason at all.

 

Can any one please lay my mind at rest, please and thanks in advance ..

 

. I just cannot function right now as I am imagining all sorts

yes i too think the adviser is correct 

it's nothing to do with the PIP.

 

can't you ring the DWP now and find out.

can't be anything serious.. when was your last assessment for ESA? 

please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...

Last ESA assessment was about 3 years ago, actually was due about a year ago but with Covid etc, surely if it was re assessment I would have to fill in the dreaded form etc go through interview process as normal... I just don't know, I have tried to call the number on the letter

merely to ask for some enlightenment but always goes to answer. 

 

Which dept at DWP would I call PIP etc 

Thanks for replying much appreciated

Yes for an ESA reassessment they normally send questionnaire to be completed.

 

But the call could still be about ESA, with someone from DWP wanting to check with you, what your current curcumstances are and talk about the reassessment process.  If your health is still the same as when you were last reassessed, perhaps they can decide to extend the support group period and delay the assessment review.

 

They have to arrange a date/time to call people, as most people would not like being called without any warning.  And DWP deal with millions of claims, so it would be impractical to keep trying to call people, in the hope they were in when they called.

 

Call the number on the letter, if you want to know reason for the phone appointment.

We could do with some help from you.

Hi thought to post an update, even if only to help alleviate anyone else that receives this letter,

 

Well I did ring a few times and got the answer machine, gave up... then on Tuesday out of the blue, they rang me back, asked how they could help, I explained I had no idea what this letter was and could I please get some clarity as my stress levels were through the roof, he asked if I would like him to conduct the interview there and then obviously I said yes please...

 

He was lovely, asked me the usual security questions and then the reason for the interview

-- Had I ever campaigned for an election, to which I replied yes in the last general election, I volunteered to hand out leaflets sat at a table outside my local community centre, 300 yards from my house... he said ok look someone reported that you can't be disabled if you can campaign, honestly he was so nice,

 

I did ask when was this reported he said around 18 months ago, it's taken that long to get to me due to Covid, I said I know who and why this was done, I was given a Disabled parking space at the side of my house parking bay, this space was coverted by a bullying neighbour, she even tried to buy it from the council but was told no... at around the time the complaint was made, how nasty.

 

this lovely man told me he was closing it down as a Malicious Call, and that if I wanted to volunteer again doing the same to just do it... I told him and you wonder why disabled people refuse to volunteer when this happens, he agreed.

 

He did ask I do not approach the person I suspect, as I told him I have no intentions of doing so I am better than that, just knowing that as they see I still have my space is enough horrible woman that she is.

 

I do hope this helps anyone with these letters, not all bad...now I can relax
