  1. Well said. I couldn't have found better word to describe "The bigger picture"
  2. How much money are we talking here? £20 or £200? Have you spoken about this to the LL? If he's not around on the 08th he could send someone to collect the keys. I can't see anyone arguing over 4 days rent. What would he do with the deposit then?
  3. If your wife is in a union, get them involved. The employer might try to put the blame on your wife as she's leaving, so no active employee is disciplined. The union will know how to act, in most cases like this they use delaying tactics until leaving day; it works in a way, but i disagree with it.
  4. If you send the paint back make sure you keep a sample in case they claim it was the correct colour.
  5. Now that you have his number you can close the transaction for cash outside ebay and make more money. Let the guy fight his battle if he wants to.
  6. Wrong colour, automatic refund/replacement. I ordered from them before and a pot arrived half open with paint spilled out. They sent an immediate replacement and let me keep the opened paint. Maybe they didn't want to deal with this just before a sunny weekend... Wait monday, i'm sure they'll send you the correct paint.
  7. Don't be fooled, it's all a money making scheme and nothing more. The fines are issued by machines without human input, so if you are just over the limit at 3am empty road, you would get the same treatment of someone dangerously speeding in traffic at 5pm. The set up is made to maximise profit, many cameras are fitted on stretches where there's nothing around a nice dual carriageway with a 30 or 40 limit. But then you can do 60 in a bendy country lane where two cars can't pass at the same time. Camera vans parked up to make money more or less everywhere. No, i haven't got done many times, only once years ago but it was a speed trap and the officer who stopped me kind of admitted it. In some civil places, to make motorists slow down where there's a real need of doing 30, they put camera signs and visual warnings; everyone sticks to the speed limit and nobody makes money. In my experience the speeding tickets are just to be accepted as an extra tax for us motorists, unless there's a gross mistake i.e. limit is 40 and they clocked the car at 36 but still issued the ticket.
  8. You can return because of wrong colour, but not for ANY reason within 14 days. It's a mixed paint to customer specification, so if the product is fit for purpose, this would be one of the cases in which the customer cannot simply change their mind.
  9. Seems to be only 3 years. For vehicles of that price??? https://www.landrover.co.uk/ownership/warranty/land-rover-standard-warranty.html
  10. I can confirm that Audi, Toyota and VW warranties get automatically transferred to new owner, no need to register.
  11. Don't Land Rovers come with manufacturer warranty which is transferable like all other car manufacturers? If the car is 3 years old /22000 miles, surely the manufacturer warranty should step in. I'm sure land rover don't want bad publicity and a gearbox failing at 22000 miles, considering that a lot of their vehicles with 300k+ miles are still on original gearbox. Someone on top gear once said that they are the most reliable and the least reliable cars.
  12. I've looked and looked, but i couldn't find the bit that says that the onus is on the buyer to prove the fault was present at point of purchase in the CRA 2015. Perhaps you want to give us the exact section and point of the CRA 2015 so we can verify ourselves. My view is that self confident car dealers and their "legal" departments are deliberately misusing the following words: "the onus is on the buyer to prove the goods are faulty" Well, of course one must be able to say what's wrong with something. They're then adding to this statement and including some wrong statements which are not in the CRA 2015 as long as i can see. A faulty gearbox is faulty even if the fault is intermittent. As long as the fault is there within 30 days the buyer can exercise the right to reject. The seller can then try to prove that the fault was not present at point of sale hence, the buyer damaged it. Here is the link to the official legislation, please point us in the right (or wrong) direction. Also, there's no shame in saying "i made a mistake, i was wrong " especially online where nobody knows who you are. http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/2015/15/contents/enacted
  13. If the recording definitely proves an offence, I would disclose it to the relevant authority. Then if the offender wants to sue me for exposing them, they'll have to face a judge and be shamed again which is extremely unlikely. The problem is: does the recording DEFINITELY proves guilt?
  14. Last time i closed a ltd company (not to avoid paying ccj) it took me 5 minutes to fill a form. 90 days later the company had been permanently closed. A lot of people do this every day after piling up debts, it's the easiest [problem] out there. In fact, companies like screwfix have found a way to slightly close the loophole by getting directors to sign a personal guarantee (with little knowledge of what it is). We have seen many former directors on this forum crying about personal guarantee after the had piled up lots of debts and closed the ltd company.
  15. Company will fold as soon as court papers are served. They're probably piling up tons of requests of refund so to maximise their exit bonus. Classic limited company car traders trick.
