  1. Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe you'll likely need the mortgage providers permission to rent the house out as well. It's also possible that this will result in the type of mortgage you have changing which may result in an increase in the mortgage payments.
  2. It's one thing to try and make people think they're compulsory, but just outright saying "We've booked an appointment to come fit one without even asking" is taking it even beyond that. Just today they sent another two e-mails, one saying "Great News! You can now get a smart meter installed" and another "Please re-book your smart meter installation"
  3. So I take care of Gas/Electricity switching for my grandmother, so her account is linked to my e-mail address as I submit meter readings online for her and such since she's basically a technophobe for anything more than a TV, and when I checked my e-mails this morning I had one from EDF saying "Thanks for booking an appointment to have Smart Meters installed" I hadn't made any such appointment online, and my grandmother had made no such appointment on the phone either, so EDF had simply taken it upon themselves to book a Smart Meter installation for her in 2 weeks time. Fortunately I was able to login to her account online and find the not very obvious link to cancel the appointment (When you go into the appointment, there's huge buttons for rescheduling it to another time, but the link to Cancel is somewhat hidden. It's basically in a sentence that said "Or if you'd like you can Cancel your booking" with the word cancel just being a Hyperlink), but it's certainly worrying that they're now just forcing appointments on people without even asking and, had I not been able to check my e-mails due to being on holiday or away with work then in 2 weeks time some stranger would have just turned up at my grandmothers door telling her he was there to change the meters. The main reasoning behind not having smart meters at the moment is simply due to the number of stories I've seen in the past year or two about poor installation jobs leading to gas leaks, boiler breakdowns, electricity surges damaging equipment, etc. Last thing we want to risk right now is for someone barely trained turning up, rushing a meter swap and leaving asap and then a woman in her late 80s being left with no heating in the current weather conditions. Just thought I'd post this as a word of warning for anyone else with EDF to keep a lookout for.
  4. Not really difficult to trace an IP address back to a specific address. Given that violating the TV License is still a criminal offence then they can probably report it and get the ISP to provide an address of which house had that particular IP at the time.
  5. If you watch them as they are being broadcast live then yes, you need a TV License. Who made or is broadcasting the programmes is immaterial. It doesn't matter if the show is just a repeat, what matters is that you are watching a live transmission, not a live show.
  6. If it's under the £100 s75 limit then there's always Chargeback.
  7. Out of curiosity, one query I have is how does this work with trade-in vehicles? If a vehicle is rejected within 30 days and the consumer traded in a vehicle against it, what happens then? Is the consumer entitled to the return of that vehicle if the trader still has possession of it? What if the vehicle is still in the traders possession, but has a significant amount of extra mileage? What happens if the vehicle is no longer in the traders possession? Is the consumer then entitled to the trade-in value of their vehicle (as set by the trader) at the time it was traded in?
  8. There's no reward for loyalty in the workplace anymore. Do what's best for you. If the first company found someone better that they wanted more than you they wouldn't hesitate to drop you in favour of them.
  9. Since when were Footlocker not a genuine reputable retailer? They even have physical shops in the UK. For the OP query, I don't think there's really anything you can do. Most likely they can track general stock most of the time but high demand limited edition items probably break the stock checking system. I suspect that at the time they were taking orders they just had an estimate on how many items they would receive and took more pre-orders than their allocation ended up being, so orders were probably processed on a first come first served basis.
  10. Current 4K TV content (Virgin and Sky) require a TV that supports HDCP 2.2 which requires HDMI 2.0. From what I can gather that particular TV only has HDMI 1.4 The screen itself is still 4K resolution capable.
  11. I had one of these calls yesterday from Katie! The voice did make me think it was a bot, but it seemed to almost be responding to what I was saying about having never had an accident. It was a Leeds number that called me though, 0113 073 5418 Then again these ambulance chasers are so stuck to their scripts that I think I would've gotten the same responses from a human being.
  12. Does that still apply with a "Click and Collect" option though? Normally Click and Collect means that you just make a reservation online, then you have to physically go to the store to pay and pick up the item.
