  1. I purchased a 32inch combi TV from Finlux direct on 16/06/2014 and the TV worked fine until six weeks after new purchase. Because customer must return goods at their own expense after the 14 day (no fuss) perio, I sought advice from the Citizen's Advice who now deal with much consumer complaint matters. Their instruction was for me to write them a letter explaining the sudden break down of the television, that they must under sale of goods act 1979, goods unfit for their intended purposes and offer a free returns service or refund for the return of TV if I paid for the return. Their re
  2. The letter you received from the organization, write back asking if they are the property landlord, as it would appear to me that they are from what you have said. Yet to be completely certain, best just to write back to the acknowledgement letter saying that: 'further to your correspondence with them, because the littering still an ongoing matter, I need to escalate my original letter of complaint to that of the managing director of the housing scheme, so that appropriate action can be sought, and a 'nuisance neighbour prevention' case be filed. For myself to do this, I therefore n
  3. My fingers are crossed for you - I find academic studies mentally stimulating too; yet hope that it gets you to where you are wanting in your life-journey!
  4. Thanks Fletch - It sort of gave me a dizzy shock having had the student-loan -statement through that showed inflated interest rates!. I had completely forgotten about the whole thing of student loans until that. You can actually get the loans written off if you can prove long-term disability (according) to student finance web pages - though you have to be permanently 'unemployable' which I am certainly not. I think that they should only ever ask people to repay back their loans if earning in excess of £50'000 per annum - they can certainly afford rep
  5. When I worked at Virgin Media in 2008 I had begun repayment, yet was only employed there as a temporary stand-in for eight months approximately. Since then, I have not been in paid work - only part-time work from 2010-2012 and not earning enough to make repayment. I am currently in receipt of disability benefits since 2012 due to long-term mental health conditions.
  6. I love Richmond park - full of pouncing deers and dawdling ducks! I used to live in a part of Hampshire where cyclists took to the peddle-reserved waterways, and miss that now I live in Woking. There are nearbye canals by me, yet you have to cycle to get to them on the main roads - where I am just not confident to go on these. I used to be a gymnast in my earlier years - being 41 and nowhere near as fit, adds to the lame excuse of not getting back on a bike!
  7. You have received so much helpful advice already, yet just wanted to give a little advice myself if that is good with you?. I live in a private residence that also houses vulnerable adults with varying degrees of mental health conditions. I am a voluntary warden as well as a respectable tenant, yet have the responsibility of overseeing the management of negative behaviours I then report to the manager of the housing scheme. I completely empathize with your situation, and you should certainly not have to tolerate anti-social behaviours from your neighbours, regardless of whether they
  8. I wish that when I had gotten myself into a financial mess with Wonga in 2012, the FCA had have taken the necessary action they ought to have done all that time ago! - I wrote to the FSA in 2012 yet they simply passed my complaint onto the Citizen's Advice team, who also advised me to contact the FSA - it was a roundabout circus at the time, that merely added to my own despair.
  9. That's a terrible shame - they helped me. The FCA definitely has significant consumer protection clout above that of the CAB, yet when I did write to them, they simply put me through to the CAB in th end.
  10. I have a fantastic vintage racer and would really love to hop on and cycle a good few miles each day to get fit. Yet, I fear that it could be considered uncool and perhaps, inspiring of motorist disgust and loathing to have yet another pedestrian on the roads - blocking their traffic flow - regardless of how sensible the cyclist may appear - or not. In Scandinavia, where some of my very own gene-pool originates; more than chick to be seen peddling anything with two-wheels, yet certainly not the case in the UK. I can drive, and have driven a spectacular reliable car from t
  11. It is truly appalling to come accross ill-informed; invidious and self-serving politicians, who little understand the concept of disability - let alone poverty. I have always worked and studied my way through life, until very recent times, and often taken jobs well below my skill set because I was over-qualified for some jobs here in the UK. I am currently pursuing a career in writing as an extremely gifted author, despite suffering long-term clinical depression; social anxiety and PTSD - I don't allow these terms of 'disability' to define me however, because of the holistic views I have reg
  12. Hi there, You have already received some great replies already, yet did want to say that they can at their individual discression: accept payment installments if you have a letter from a legal representative, informing them of your financial hardship - the Citizen's Advice Bureau will happily do this for free. I once fell into the exact same 'pay-day loan' trap as yourself whilst I was working, and automatically helped themselves to my bank funds after a failed repayment date. I was fuming at the time - had no real idea that they could do this. There is a part of legislatio
  13. I have been a mature student in the past and attended at least two different Universities - one in 1999 and another in 2002. Neither courses were completed for reasons to do with past childhood abuse trauma that has impacted upon my adult life to an extent I never imagined possible, and has affected job prospects as well as integral self-esteem about achieving a career of somekind. I have recently received a shocking student loan statement, that shows how much I owe in terms of past student debts, and the interest that is being wacked on each year - despite the fact
