  1. Hi, We have rented a house for the last 3 years and have always paid the rent on time. However, the landlord has not been doing any repairs so we served him notice to end the tenancy. I have now discovered when he registered the deposit with the DPS, that he had not done so correctly. Basically, The tenancy agreement is in his Limited Companies name yet the deposit is in his personal name. he had also not registered both of the tenants names with the DPS, only mine. I spoken to the DPS and they confirmed the errors. I then said, well if the deposit is not registered correctly then surely they have no legal bases to hold on to the deposit and must return it to me immediately of which they refused. DPS said, i have to request the refund (Already done) wait 14 days for the landlord to respond, if no response, i have to complete a form get it witnessed by a Solicitor and then wait another 14 days for the landlord to respond. if no response then i get the deposit back. Can i have some advise please?
  2. Hi, If Landlord owns a building which is split into multi tenancy and another tenant is causing issues leaving rubbish in common areas, load noise, leaving building insecure, Landlord not decorating common areas. Would this give me right to reclaim rent paid?
  3. Surely if they ban it, why do this? https://www.bmw.co.uk/finance/bmw-insurance/pdfs/bmw_alloy_wheel_repair_summary.pdf
  4. do you have written evidence that BMW ban this?
  5. BMW UK refused to do anything, its the dealer who offered to Refurbishment of all alloys again or replace two and i replace two.£787.49 inc VAT i got to pay. What really winds me up, is BMW UK give the dealer (i attached a copy in my previous post) a document saying Refurbishment is acceptable. yet they refused a warranty claim as the alloys had been Refurbished. I have been advised as the contract is between the dealer and I, i have no contract with BMW so cannot take BMW UK to court. Its not a easy case to win in court i have been told, based on the information. also i have to look at this if i went down the legal route my car is still not going to get fixed in the mean time and legal action could take 6 months to complete.
  6. Solicitor took a look at the case, documents and emails and said if i took court action, that i could end up with a costs order. Dealer now agreed to cover the cost of 2 alloys if i cover the other two. I needed hard evidence and the check list sent from bmw uk basically destroyed my case. Again, the consumer is the one who always pays to sort out issues which is not their fault.
  7. looks like i don't have a case unless BMW UK will give to me in writing that they don't approve the repair of alloys.
  8. The alloys were Refurbished May 2017 - I purchased the car 29/08/2017 - car first reg 01/09/2016
  9. They have an approved BMW workshop Latest response. - I actually purchased the car within 12 months of first registration. car-check.pdf
  10. Head of business response is your timeframe of a week is unreasonable and the issue has not stopped you using the vehicle for it’s primary purpose. I will wait for the outcome of the decision from BMW UK.
  11. Hi, I asked BMW UK for a copy of engineering standard that allows refurbishment from BMW. They refused and said it was a internal document. I have asked the dealer for a copy and he is avoiding it. However all BMW keep stating is the refurbishment is not a recommend way of repair. I first complained to both BMW UK and Dealer last Monday 24/04/2018 of which the dealer took pictures. I feel they have had enough time to address this. BMW UK have a open case with a Good Will payment claim requested by the dealer and is currently with them for a decision. The head of business at the dealer said he does not think it will get approved due to the repairs and is not going to give me his final response until BMW UK have confirmed the out come of the good will claim.
  12. Thanks for the reply. I spoke to bmw who phoned the dealer who refused replacement. He said he will cover the cost to repair the 3 alloys and the warranty would be 6 months and if they go again they will charge cost price to repair. The car is not even two years old. Ex demo car which looks like was not looked after. Do I have a claim as they are not of satisfactory quality and don't want refurb to be back again in 12 months same issue. Just spoken to BMW - they do not recommend dealers to repair alloys. Only a replacement is recommended. It will void the car warranty on the alloys. if they had not been repaired then the balance of the car 3 year warranty would be available to me. BMW said they should have told me about the alloys being repaired as it affects the warranty. However there is noting that BMW can do apart from recommend to the dealer to replace but cannot enforce it. to replace all 4 alloys the cost is £2,250 Tempted to issue a money claim for that amount. What are my chances if i was to take the BMW Dealer to court on the bases of 1) a repair to the car which prevents the customer from obtaining Manufacturers Warranty should be disclosed to the customer before purchase (this was not done) 2) The repair of 4 alloys on a car that was less then a year old - 5000 miles is excessive 3) The repair only lasted 11 months on 3 of the 4 alloys Desired outcome. Dealer ordered by court to replace 4 alloys with new at their cost
  13. Purchased a BMW 420 Convertible on a 66 plat (Purchased August 2017) with less then 5,000 miles. EX Demo Car. 7 months in to owing the car, 3 of the 4 alloys have corroded. took the car to BMW of which tells me in May 2017 (3 months before i had purchased the car, 3 of the alloys had been refurbished and only carry a 6 month warranty. It was not disclosed to me that the alloys had been refurbished. I said to them i don't expect to purchase a car less then 5k miles for over £30k to have refurbished alloys. I requested new alloys as it was not disclosed to me at point of sale. they refused. The car is on BMW finance. Am i wrong by stating i want new alloys or is this what i should expect? looks like someone else got the same issue https://www.pistonheads.com/gassing/topic.asp?h=0&f=72&t=1541056
  14. not sure as Steve cannot remember
  15. No to all your questions. However the Jude said at the end. "Was any of the dates for Holiday" and Steve Answered No. the dates dated back almost a year ago and Steve claims he was only drilled about the sickness. The council wanted Sick notes and the doctor sent the school a letter stating they do not provide them. the court said to the council, how is steve meant to prove stickness and the council said sicknotes. the judge was annoyed with the council and found steve not guilty as submitted evidence by the council was the doctors letter and the Courts view was the council was asking Steve to prove something which was not possible.
