  1. Carsen80 My advice (I have just been through all this) keep the fight going, be polite and do NOT lose your temper no matter how they goad you or lie. Keep a record of all emails, responses and letters and even print off and keep the signed for part of Royal Mail website - everytime they receive your letter forward a PDF copy to them by email including the signed for JPEG.
  2. Right guys, 1st of all the claim has been settled out of court and the trader has refunded me in full including my expenses. There had been a battle to get there but I finally settled with their third offer as going to court would have cost them dearly due to the District Judge accepting an interest rate of £88.88 per day All I can say is I am very thank full to the support and information on this forum and without it I would have never achieved what I have, I have learnt a lot from this and although a novice at any kind of law the District Judge thanked me for the preparation
  3. The final straw. Statement of truth including all Exhibits of communication have been logged with the court. A hearing date has been set and I am just waiting for the defendants statement of truth and exhibits which should be here by 4pm today (I will not be holding my breath)
  4. Kalahati Do not stress and do not let the dealer take you for a crunchy ride. I had and still have issues with a trader I bought a car off for my wife, there were no faults listed in the advert but did state 'maintained to a high standard and can only be described as faultless'.. Wrong, the vehicle is full of faults but the dealer stated in an email in response to my letter 'the faults you state are fair wear and tear and to be expected, you were told of all faults before purchase and the vehicle is sold as seen as we do not test them or their functions'.. (how did they tell me
  5. Today the mediation service has taken place. The vehicle retailer has stated that they will refund ONLY for the vehicle as long as I get the car to them and then they will send a company cheque within 14 days, this was declined as they are refusing to cover all other costs that have incurred. So the matter is now going to court and just waiting on the dates from the court etc.
  6. Update: As the retailer that vehicle was purchased from reads the comments on here, they may find it useful to know that I am not giving up and their own emails, invoice and the vehicle is evidence against their own defence (AJ and ALI hope you are both well and keeping my refund including all my additional costs/ interest nice and warm J ) Central Motor Company I have decided to mediate with the retailer first of all and let them present their defence and evidence. The paperwork has been posted back to the courts. HSBC HSBC complaints department have been in touch and
  7. Yeah I have checked the log and I had called the Mrs to say that I had arrived to the garage.
  8. Right an update for all - The court papers were delivered to the Motor trader and they have filed a defence stating: The faults were all mentioned to me (even though their emails state there were no faults) I bought the car even though they stated faults to me prior to purchase (If £5600 of faults were mentioned then I doubt I would have bought the car for £5300 that is only worth around £5500). They alleged that I called a mechanic on my mobile whilst I was viewing the car (I cannot recall this as I had not called a mechanic). They alleged that I was aware and they ensu
  9. Right all, Sorry I have been busy with other things but at the same time have still been chasing this up and questioning the bank. Attached is a letter from the bank stating they can not do anything as the car was "sold as seen" and I had the opportunity to test drive the car, the bank have also stated the make / model are correct and the independent report from the garage relates to "wear and tear" and not faults. See here - http://s1120.photobucket.com/user/poor-boy/media/HSBCLetter08012015.jpg.html I have decided to reply and put the bank to "strict proof" and to provide evid
  10. Right.. The bank have written me a letter advising that the faults are due to age and general usage and the independent report relates to wear and tear issues that would be present in a used car from 2007. I am going to write back to them putting them under strict proof to provide evidence on their decision.
  11. I asked Manpower for a transfer to Wolverhampton as its only 15miles and not the 38miles to Solihull but they rejected the transfer.
  12. All the jobs are through Manpower agency - If you step out of the marked walk way once or anything simple then you are sacked.. Is it worth taking on a 200K mortgage then to be left homeless. I know it's negative to think like that but in the 2 months I was there I saw a lot and how you must put up with being treated.
