  1. Hi all


    My partner purchased a second hand car from a dealer on friday for £2600,on sunday two warning lights appeared for the power steering and the braking rendering it useless unless the problem is found

    On contacting the dealer this morning my partner was told that the car was sold as a private sale on behalf of a private individual and that therefore he was not liable for any repairs to the vehicle

    My partner also somewhat naively signed the invoice/reciept which states


    "this vehicle is a private sale on behalf of the above customer and no warranty/guarantee is implied or given"(the details of the private individual are given)

    she did believe that she was purchasing a vehicle directly from the dealer untill this invoice was handed over for signing and signed it with out proper thought on the matter , the money was paid by bank transfer directly to the dealer not the private individual.


    I believed that we had rights regardless of a warranty under the sales of goods act and would be grateful of some light on the issue and any advice on our next step

  3. hi all

    my employer recently moved to new offices and all employees were told that they would recieve their allocated work by text/e-mail and that we were not to visit the office itself at 8am every morning as we had done in the past


    i am contracted to work 40 hrs a week on an hourly rate normally 8am-5pm mon-fri ,however recently they have been sending me work at perhaps 10 oclock in the morning ,and the job may only take a couple of hours ,

    after waiting around for more work if none came i would return home and wait there ,now on recieving my monthly pay they have only paid me the hours for the time i was on the job meaning that i have waited in my house for most of the day unpaid ,and unable to plan or go anywhere incase work came through which i would be expected to attend .


    on other occasions they would text me through an adress saying hi this is your work for today i would do the job perhaps taking only 3-4 hours , do they still have to pay me the 8 hours ?


    on both circumstances i would very much appreciate your opinions ,thankyou
