    • Hello Friends. I cannot believe it but im being evicted again, i was given a section 48 notice 4 months into my tenancy. I already went through this process last year, i overstayed in my last place by a few months and left on 6th Oct 2023. I knew to check all the documentation that they sent to see if the notice is legal, it looks like it is. I took this place out of desperation as i had to vacate that last place. I hate this place so im not bothered about leaving it.    These cowboys lied to me when i viewed the house. I told the agent that i was evicted from my last house and naturally i dont want this to happen again. She said  the landlord has no plans to sell the house. What she did not tell me was that the landlord had tried to sell the house last year and failed. So it looks like they have used me to fill in the short period of time until its time to sell again. I did see it advertised online.   I told them im not in a strong enough financial position to find another property, cost of a deposit, 1 months rent and moving costs.   They have told me they are starting legal proceedings. They have sent me an invoice for £395 but i have not even received the court paperwork.    I dont like the job im in so i have decided to relocate to a better job and hopefully find cheaper rentals.   I can post a copy of the notice if needed.  
    • yes a judgement sorry I used the wrong word before
    • Hi So on Friday I received a copy on email from the claimants solicitors with an attached relief from sanctions application - on the basis that the solicitor missed the deadline for the additional directions and it was an oversight on their part and that the claimant should therefore not suffer.   They then attached a copy of the deed of assignment and a new witness statement.  They stated that they would be happy to delay the court date by 28 days but that they believed both parties were ready for the court case on 7th June. My first question, is there anything I need to do or do I just sit and wait to see what is decided?  Secondly, is it likely the judge will be aware that the claimants solicitors did exactly the same in the set aside court case (ie they filed their court bundle late and applied for relief from sanctions on the morning of the court date, and my solicitors had no choice but to agree because they threatened to strike my case out because my solicitors had only filed their court bundle by email and not post).  This is a clear pattern of how these solicitors work rather than it being a one off oversight! 
    • I shall find the link later this evening. It was about couples not living together but being liable for council tax. I was never married or in an official civil partnership. We lived together for 18 months, I then left for 6 months for work but continued to pay my half of the bills and rent.   We then split up I gave up my tenancy she took it all in her name. She then decided to move in with me 5 months later. She then banned me from going back to my house eventually let me back in then called the police. Took over my house and is now only paying the rent not the bills so I will be landed with those to. So over the course of our relationship I have ended up paying her debts for 5 different addresses, personal loans and credit cards. If I refuse to pay them she makes more accusations.

    • 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, hope you can help,

In April I received a speeding ticket for doing 70 on a motorway in a 60 restricted zone.

I paid for a TTC driving awareness course over the phone and was told they would email me a date for the course booking.

In June I received a letter from west Mercia police reminding me to pay the fine or book the course.

I emailed [email protected] explaining I had paid and waiting for a course date.

They replied: 

The reminder letter is an automatically generated letter as the status of the notice is “booking pending” so please disregard.

The next letter I received was a letter informing me I had not attended the course and I could no longer attend the course.

I made several attempts to call westmericia but the telephone sent me round in a loop, no one answered.

I emailed the office again the reply was: 

I have today spoken to the course provider TTC and they have confirmed that on the 3rd of May you telephoned and booked onto a course on the 16 June at 11.15 this course date was confirmed in that telephone call and a confirmation email was sent to you confirming these course details.

They state that 24 hours before the course time a reminder email was sent to you and then one hour before the course was due to start a text message was sent to you. 

Due to the date of the offence the option of the course is no longer available and our letter of the 11th of July confirms your options. 

If you wish to accept the fixed penalty please ensure the fine is paid and your licence sent to the payment office for endorsement by the 28 July 2022

I persisted in calling the contact number for some days and eventually got hold of someone who informed me an email explaining the date had been sent to my email address. I searched my spam and found it. But of course too late.

I have since received another speeding ticket for doing over 30 in a 30 limit. There is no option for a speed awareness course because it is on the system that I have booked the other one.

I forgot to say that the course provider hadn’t given me a date at the time of booking as she said she would email me the date. I also didn’t receive a text message. 


Please could you help? 
Many thanks

  • dx100uk changed the title to 70mph in a 60 zone, Missed driving course TTC - email went to spam, now done +30mph in a 30 zone - can't opt for course?

You need to contact the course provider to see if you can sort this out. But you must understand that the offer of a course is made entirely at the discretion of the police and there is no right of appeal if you are not offered one (for whatever reason). As an side, there is no right to a fixed penalty either and the police can simply begin court action if they wish (though they usually follow their guidelines).
