    • Hi   I assume this mattress was the Tenants own property?   So after moving out the Tenants provided an attachment showing a stained mattress and wanting full deposit back and threatening to claim against you for this.   1. Tenants failed to notify you of this stained mattress issue until the end of tenancy after they had vacated the property.   2. You have no evidence that this was the actual mattress used in that property nor evidence to back up there claim the staining caused this mattress damage.  (i.e. one of them could have had an accident and wet the bed or done this when they moved from the property).     3. Ask them that you wish the mattress independently inspected. (which you are fully entitled to do and if it proves this claim is false it will be added to the deposit claim by you the landlord for damages as well as the Garden if you need to get landscapers in to carry out the work that should have been carried out by Tenants as per Tenacy Agreement and raised  by yourself (Landlord) on a few occasions which Tenants failed to rectify even at end of tenancy.   4. Ask them to provide you with the contact details of there Contents Insurance Company (tenants whether Private or Social Housing should always take out and have Contents Insurance but is up to that tenant) bet they don't provide it Big question is the Deposit protected in a Tenancy Deposit Scheme (TDS) and those Tenants that have left were given a copy of the Prescribed Terms for that TDS? (Bear in mind you may need to tell TDS that you are in dispute with the Tenant about damages i.e. mattress and Garden)    
    • plenty of time to research and calm down. nothing much to do until the end of june.    
    • well ...... 1st you need to go back to post 1 and carefully read ALL this thread from the start again and pay attention to the advice and the undertones it explains about 'debt'.   2nd ...the truth is you owe no-one ANYTHING, the OC wrote off and sold the debt, and got most of it back against tax and business insurance schemes ...throw the morality card out the window...the OC did by selling the debt on for <10p=£1. and the DCa want the full balance ...id so many fools stopped paying powerless DCA's tomorrow, the whole industry would collapse overnight.   3rd the only reason this is still around your neck is because you failed to follow given advice...had you ..it would now be statute barred.      ^^^ very important research the M+S credit card debacle using our enhanced google searchbox on this page   as for the PAPLOC reply,   D.. desipte a previous CCA requests, the claimant has yet to supply any/all of the required paperwork.   i: delete [CC is attached to this reply form]"   
    • Hi again   Yes, it's been a lovely day weather wise.   Guess you've better things to do with weather like today than help with this problem, so thanks very much for your input, it's very much appreciated.   Late this afternoon I did receive a reply from the tenants, and they are asking me to go 50/50 with getting the garden sorted, not only that, as they have moved away they are expecting me to get the quotes.   Regarding you view on this issue, its so easy not to see the whole picture and my thoughts that the staining damp may be of their own doing didn't occur to me as I was so locked into the historical leak. Taking a closer look at the room in question today, I'm convinced that they are trying it on with the stained mattress- they did mail through a picture and then a receipt for supposedly the mattress. My wife and I then took both the pic and receipt to the bedding store where purchase was made to ask if the two married up, the picture does not show any emblems/manufactures logo or such to prove that this is the case, so we are none the wiser- our thoughts being that the stained mattress is from elsewhere.   A few days back I spoke to our letting agent regarding all of this, as was quite correctly mentioned there are two parts to this equation, namely the mattress and then the property.   Our agents mentioned to me that as an inventory was not carried out initially with the let, (hindsight) the pictures that were used to advertise the property could not be used as evidence to present to the TDS to be compared to the pictures now as there is no proof that the advertising pictures were in fact how the property was when the let started. I mentioned that all digital pictures have a means of finding when that pic was taken- Geo tag/Metadata- agent was quite surprised by this. The agents thoughts then went for a hide in a vacuum-   This is going off at a tangent here-many moons ago my wife studied computer science at a local University, one of her classmates who she is still in touch with is now a practising Solicitor. My wife suggested that maybe I give her a call, a bit rude I guess, but I did  phone and with the pleasantries out the way  I asked for her opinion of the best way to get this sorted. Her remit isn't landlord type stuff, however she will speak to a colleague on Monday and come back to me.   The property is due to be relet on the 21st, we will ensure that the new tenants move in to a home that is immaculate and welcoming, trouble is its getting a tadge close to get the garden issues sorted in time.   I know that all this will get closure in the end, but at the moment I've had more fun with a toothpick-   Again, many thanks.

Spanish Parking Ticket issued after I had handed the rental back / Nuvolari Rent-A-Buggy - Formentera.... I was in Ibiza!


Recommended Posts

Hi there,

 

i wonder if anybody would be able to offer me some advice.

 

In short, i went to Ibiza, Spain, in 2019 for one week and for 3 of those days I hired a moped from the local rent-a-buggy. Fast forward about 8 months, Summer 2020, a parking ticket comes through my letterbox.

 

Initially baffled because I couldnt understand where we had parked that wasnt allowed (everywhere we had been we had checked, my other half speaks Spanish). It was only when i double checked the address of the supposed infraction that i realised it was Formentera.... I was in Ibiza!

 

Again, once we cast our memories back we realised that the date in question (20th September 2019) was actually the morning we handed the moped back to them, our final day on the island. To me it seemed as though the rental company had done either one of two things... 

 

  1. They took their own bike out, got a ticket and have chosen the last person to hire it out as the culprit, or
  2. The hired it out again but have handed the wrong details over to the local authorities

 

Along with the ticket (which was entirely in Spanish by the way) came a very small description on how to appeal (again, my appeal MUST be written in Spanish) and where to send it to. Knowing full well that i wasn't in Formentera that week, i wrote my letter, used Google translate and got the other half to run her eyes over it and sent it off.

 

Fast forward another 8 months or so, I finally receive a reply, in Spanish (luckily for me im still with the same woman) which says they reject my appeal and the amount is still payable. It would appear that to me that that's it, they've decided they are right and i am wrong and want me to pay the money.... no means to appeal provided this time.

 

Now, the ticket is only 90 euros, not exactly an earth shattering amount but i am truly loathed to pay a ticket that i know for a fact has absolutely nothing to do with me, had it been ibiza i probably would have just accepted that we made an error and paid it but i was on an entirely different island at the time this ticket was issued and refuse to part with my hard earned money over someone else's mistake. 

 

I am inclined to just completely ignore it and be done with it because how hard are they really going to work over 90 euros, but, I quite often holiday in Spain so is this likely to cause me problems?

 

The rental company arent a big multinational, they are what seems to be a family run ibiza based buggy, moped and quadbike rental store and all they have had from me is a copy of my licence if memory serves me correctly.

 

Is anybody able to advise on this please? 

 

Thanks

IMHO, ignore it.

Who ever heard of someone getting a job at the Jobcentre? The unemployed are sent there as penance for their sins, not to help them find work!

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...

Do they have your credit card details?

In that case warn your bank about a possible demand for payment from them. Or if you really wanted to go some trouble you could report your card as stolen

just for clarity here ...who is THEY that keep writing to you...

parking tickets are issued by the spanish authorities , nothing to do with the rental co.

all they have to do as in this country is fwd your details and that's their end of it done.

 

something smells here...

It is the local authority writing to me, i have no doubts about the legitimacy of the ticket (it came as a perforated ticket, much like a payslip). All info. Contained on the ticket (the appeals address etc.) seemed legit to me. Only thing i was unsure about was there no website to pay which in this day and age seems ridiculous but then again i wouldn't put it past the Spanish to not have such a system in place.
