    • Part of the POFA rules for creating a liability to pay a parking co is identifying the land they control so is there another palce of the incorrect name? If so then photographs of the other site will prove that your vehicle cnat possibly have been there as the images they will produce wont match the background etc. If however Bromhall developments is the name of their employer would the land in question be known by the same name for the entire development?   The POC is the usual rubbish and inaccurate one they cribbed from Gladstones so can be attacked in your outline defence.   Now I have googled Broomhall developments and they are an Irish Co that has bult a similar named housing estate in IRELAND. ther is also  a Broomhall gateway development plan for SCOTLAND but nothing in England, let alone Sheffield specifically   defence has to be in a fortnight after the deadline for the AOS assuming you get that in on time.   On google noseyneighbour I can see signs near to the parking bays that say permit holders only so unless you have a permit the signage doesnt apply to youas you would be prohibited fro parking there anyway. So with this in mind were you parked in a bay or on the road? Were you visiting or connected to the property that bay was allocated to and if so can you find out if the bay is part fo the property and noted in the deeds. If it is then it has nowt to do with VCS.   So you are going to grab some pictures and then you compare these to the web site of Broomhall development in ireland and that will be part fo your evidence   Also ask council when the Close was adopted by council as it appears to be a public highway
    • Ericsbrother   If I had the opportunity at the time I would have argued the value on the Court claim, however this wouldn't have changed by a significant amount.  So asking for it to be set aside is probably not going to end this in the long run.   No we don't owe any money to the business.   We have a good set of books and records.  No account filed as of yet.   The company is still 'active' on companies house and has not been dissolved.  We only received the Notice of enforcement a few days ago.       What makes you think they can force entry into a domestic property?      
    • Sorry but I think that it is rather precipitative giving advice – and rather over-generalised advice at that – until we understand more detail about the circumstances.
    • now the terms will specify that they can cancel if weather if bad etc and you have to accept that but by doing so they have to accept that the voucher's term is extended or they must refund for their failure to perform to the contract. essentially you should have asked for a refund on a no fly day and they would have to comply and by continuing to  accept things you were blindly accepting alterations to the original conrcat and that makes things more difficult. i would write again giving them 14 days to refund as they ahve filed to perform to their contractual obligations and then sue them if they still dont cough up. However, this meaqns you must follow through with the threat of cort action so before you start you need to read up on the relevant consumer legislation and also about performance of contracts

Anoyed with Halifax & Royal Mail

Recommended Posts

I sent my DPA letter on the 25th April, a couple of days later it showed that it had not been delivered on the Royal Mail website, so I tried again the next day, and so on.

I phone up Royal Mail, they tell me it will have to be classed as lost, fair enough i thought. When checking my bank statement i find that the cheque had been cashed on the 11th may. I call Halifax, apparantly they have no record of a letter or a cheque, they obviously havent a clue whats goin on.

How the hell can Royal Mail deliver a 1st class recorded item, and class it as lost?

Luckily i get a call from Halifax explaining that they have now found the record of that cheque being paid in. I still havent got my statements/list of charges yet, should they have sent them as soon they cashed the cheque?

The thing with recorded delivery is that it only gets tracked when they have a signature, if they have delivered a batch, they will have got a signature for the top one and only that one will be scanned, it's really not that reliable.

 

I know it costs a bit more but it really is worth paying the extra for Special Delivery.

That's right - and I agree that recorded is often not worth the effort.

 

With regards to the DPA, they have 40 days to supply, they don't have to send things out as soon as they cash the cheque.

 

The 40 days start from the date of receipt, i.e. the day after you sent it, not from the day it is cashed, by the way

Ok thx guys,

 

I always though that they had to sign for each item, now i know. Ill be using special delivery from now on.

They might as well not bother having Recorded delivery, if thats the way it works.

 

thx

I don't want this thread to go off track here - there are plenty of threads in relation to Royal Snail - but just to finally clarify, the court would not expect you to send anything by recorded or special delivery - the banks certainly don't.

 

It is only intended for personal reassurance as far as we are concerned.

 

End of hijack!

hi all,

I sent my data protection letter on 28th june, on looking on the royalmail website, it doesn't seem that they have received it either.

The only down side on my part is that i sent a postal order, because my bank account is £** overdrawn due to bank charges.

So the only way i will know if they recieved my letter is, if they send me my statements.

I dont know if they send an acknowledgment to everyone but lots of people have them, I havent. As for Royal Mail, I posted my DPAs to BOS and Lloyds on 19/6/06 and only the BOS one shows up as arrived and I sent postal orders because I no longer have a cheque book so I'm going to the PO tomorrow to see if they know how to check if they have been cashed.


BOS Prelim : 19/06/06 Owed : £382: offered £90.LBA sent 02/07/06, Delivered: 04/07/06. Offer increased to full £382 but with condition. Settled 4/11/06.

Data Protection Act sent to BOS CC : 19/06/06. Acknowledged : 03/07/06 Statements Received : 11/07/06 owed £845

Statements received for closed BOS account: 27/07/06, Owed £2596.52

First claim on closed BOS account now started - £735 Prelim received 7/11/06 LBA sent 5/12/06, Offered Full £735 but with conditions. Claim filed 22/01/07

You can check if your postal order has been cashed - so long as you have the counterfoil..... theres a form to fill in at the Post Office or I think you can call them - numbers on their website.

 

Went to the PO yesterday and asked for the procedure on checking if a postal order was cashed or not and was told that a p.o. can be cashed up to 6 months after sending it and I would have to wait until then, not very helpful at all. To say I was p***ed off is an understatement.:mad:

no thats bull - telephone the post office customer service at www.postoffice.co.uk - they'll send you a little form to fill in and send back with your counterfoil and they will tell you when and where your PO was cashed.
