  1. Thanks for that Slick as it was the case I was referring to. I know it is nothing to do what the OP posed but I was referring to what gyzmo had posted to the OP in that he should go to court to get his agreements unenforcable. But is that not basically what Rankine had done and ended up a bit of a tool? Just thought it a bit of reckless advise.
  2. HELLLPPPP!?!? Money mysteriously appeared in my account? Why would this be a concern? It's like complaining Kylie asked me out on a date!
  3. They may do it more often at Christmas but that doesn't mean they do not do it at other times. It is only 33% off in reality and 50% offers are weekly. I bought 3 Dove products back in August where 1 was free from Boots-hardly Xmas time! And I'm afraid you are wrong-one would not be able to buy two Dove 3 for 2 on offer and combine it with, say, just one Nicorette 3 for 2. You would be charged full price on the two Dove products and full price on the one Nicorette product as you are not entering into the promotion of those products as you are not buying 3 of each.
  4. Yes, but you will always get the cheapest item free. So if the thoothbrushes are free then you would get 3 for nothing on the purchases you describe. But one would need to check the prices of all three different products of that brand to determine the best combination at the checkout.
  5. Because in Sainsburys, for example, there could be a 3 for 2 offer on Colgate products, ie toothpaste, mouth wash, toothbrushes, floss etc etc. Also, there could be a 3 for 2 offer with Fosters lager. You don't buy 2 slabs of Fosters and 1 pack of Colgate toothpaste and get the toothpaste free!! The offers are 3 for 2 specific to those products. The above example does not qualify as one would only have purchased 2 of one promotion and 1 of the other!! :D
  6. Hello Firstly, you were off sick for sometime, one assumes you were therefore in contact with your employers? And your GP communicated with your work? Did you attend your employer's OH, if they have one? Who is this 'malicious' individual you suspect? It already appears a breach of trust with regard to your employment. I'll reserve a comment on data protection until you answer the above.
  7. Don't know where you got this from and 3 for 2 offers run all year round, not just Christmas, and the two stores you happen to mention I use often. I'm afraid you are incorrect with your advice here. The 3 for 2 offers are specific to those particular products and cannot be interchanged with other 3 for 2 offers and the barcode will relate this.
  8. It's that case that happened fairly recently where some chap was trying to get out of his debts and took his creditors to court to make the debts unenforcable due to lack of agreements, but only one of his creditors was trying to enforce anyway. Thus he had a hefty legal bill. Sounds a bit like what happened and what you are advising the OP to do here!
  9. Why are you pursuing ebay then? They are a hosting company for online sales, the contract and payment, is between you and your seller/buyer.
  10. Who is your supplier? E.On are allowing me to pay £120 a month which is to include my usage now and the paying of arrears of £320. Normally it would be about £60 a month. So they are allowing me 6 months to clear and be up to date.
  11. No, I didn't pay last months council tax, doesn't make me a criminal! If I continue not to pay it then I will be summonsed to a Magistrates court whereby my council will be granted a Liability Order, still doesn't make me a criminal. Yet it is a Magistrate dealing with a civil matter. However, should I continue not to pay then yes, I could end up in jail. But there would be a distinction between non payment and refusing to pay.
  12. Hi Personally, I would submit a County Court claim for monies owed as unlawful deductions as soon as the 7 days expire. I don't like ET's and companies are wary of receiving a CCJ as it has a negative impact upon their credit status, especially in these tough times, and it can buck their ideas up to resolve the issue more speedily. Are you entitled to a fee remission at a CC?
  13. Oh yes they do! Non payment of council tax for one.
  14. This will surely be raised in a claim to an ET in the near future as, no doubt, somebody will be disciplined/sacked for refusing to submit their passport on demand and the employer will be so pig ignorant believing they have the right to demand it in the first place. As in this threads example, the OP had been employed for 18 months yet her employer still demanded a copy of her passport. (Note, not just to view it but to actually make a copy of it! AND her employers are not one of the very few employers/authorities who have this right!) Complete madness.
  15. A video of the transaction between you and the seller would not change the fact that there is outstanding finance on the car-you would still need to rely upon the seller to settle with the finance company. ReasonableRon makes a good suggestion, try that.
  16. Yes, but this involves a loft and the OP is specifically asking about a further bedroom within that loft and the legal angle is that certain criteria must be met for it to be habitable, bedroom or not. I could describe my 2 up 2 down as 2 bedroom, 2 living rooms yet a new buyer may use it and describe it as 1 living room, 1 bedroom, 1 study and 1 home office!! Still 4 habitable rooms.
  17. If it is a genuine concern with validity then your aquaintance will have whistle blowing protection in their job.
  18. Isn't that what some chap did fairly recently but got left with a huge legal bill?
  19. 1 Both parties should prepare written witness statements and exchange them before the hearing. At the hearing the witness reads their statement and the witness can then be asked questions by both parties and the tribunal too. 2 Observers are allowed to watch but either side can ask for a closed hearing but up to the tribunal. 3 Both parties, all witnesses, the tribunal and whoever else has sat in, quite often law students/trade union members etc, will be present in the room when the witness gives evidence.
  20. From my own personal experience TS couldn't care less about companies failing to adhere to CCA requests. Maybe other members have more positive experiences.
  21. Pat yourself on the back in getting a new job in the current climate. Well done you!
  22. Surely one can tell if the property has running water? Does the property have an owner?
  23. It depends how simple it is to do this based on your husband's skill obviously, so I guess that's only something you and your husband would know. I seem to remember that if the conversion isn't inline with the building regs of the day then no, it cannot be considered an extra bedroom but only storage. I'd get your property checked over as it is now, to make sure it is in fact classed as 2 bedroom, and that your proposals will meet with the regs to market as 3 bedrooms. Also, I gather that the access to the loft is all important to be considered a bedroom. Hopefully somebody else will be along soon to answer more fully.
