  1. I have split with my ex 2 years ago almost and we owe £550 to the rent bill. I have since tried to change to a sole tenancy and remove her but cannot be done until the arrears are paid. My letting agent has sent an email copying her into it also, showing my credit file, amounts o owe from a court case (not related to the rent) and my new partners income and name. Where do I stand with GDPR on this? I understand we are in a joint tenancy currently which im trying to end. But they've replied with all the details of my new Sole tenancy and sent it all to her along with me.
  2. I have all the paperwork that was signed. It shows my audis price. The vw price. My monthly payments and so on. Only issue is that it shows the wrong recorded mileage for my Audi, whichis the mileage their staff wrote down after inspecting my car
  3. Hi, I had my audi in at arnold clatk for its 5th repair under warranty within 10 minths ownership. The repair was practically a full engine rebuild and taking 2 weeks. The 2nd day of it being in the garage i eventually realised i was sick of the car and disheartened so called up arnold clark to give me a trade in value. The man on the phone asked me to drop the car off, which i told him its in his workshop being worked on. He went away and valued my car and got back to me with a price which would wipe out all my finance and let me start fresh. I went up and had a sit down and looked through some new cars and decided on a 16plate passat. All was fine. Car got orderd, deposit paid, finance and everything agreed in principle all signed by both parties, and shipped up from england and i was due to collect it. My car came out the garage before my new car arrived so i had about 1 week of driving it. I then went to the garage on a friday to collect my new car and hand my audi back as a trade in. When settling down to do the handover he took all my cars details, log book, service, mots, keys etc. He then went to my car to check the mileage and at that came almost sprinting back to the desk to tell me i gave him the wrong mileage. I told him on the phone my car is ay roughly 70,000miles. He went and viewed the car himself to confirm this. But in the trade in value forms he has put 26,000 miles. This obviously drastically increased the value of my car. Now... arnold clark already posted out the V5 owenership for the passat to me which i have in my name. . but they wanted me to pay an extra 3k towards it to make up for the value of the audi that they valued wrong. We couldnt come to an agreement and i said its your mistake, they had my audi and 2 weeks to look at it. Everything was agreed and signed and then cancelled as they noticed their mistake and wouldnt honour the deal unless i paid an extra 3k towards the passat. Where do i stand with this?
  4. No, the real mileage is 60,000 and shows 60,000 but the salesman somehow put down 26,000 on his sheet for my car.
  5. Hi, i was due to pick my 1 year old car up from arnold clark today but due to an admin error it has been cancelled. While my Audi was in their branch for repair i asked a salesman to value my Audi and let me know an agreed price to part ex it against another newer car. He left me a voicemail confirming my car is ok and clears itself so i would be fine. I told him my car is 60,000+ miles, fresh mot and service. He has viewed my car, tokd me his boss had viewed it and was happy. So i go in and sign the vehicle order form to get the vehicle transferred from Dundee to Wishaw which was constantly delayed for around 2 weeks. It finally arrived and i went to collect it today. When the salesman drove my Audi from the forecourt to the back of their Building he came back in asking about the mileage.. i once again said yes 60odd thiusand. He said ive got on my system its on 26thousand miles. So him and his boss go outside, start going over my car again and come in with an ultimatum. Pay more monthly for the new car or walk away. They originally valued my car at £8k... they came back saying its now only worth £6k. The more fun issue now is, Arnold Clarks staff sent out the V5 to this car in my name. So i am the registered keeper of the new car, without actually having the new car. Where do i stand on this payment wise?? If Tesco or such incorrectly price an item worth £20 at £2 im allowed to get this product then they fix the price. How does this work out from here? The V5 should arrive next week at someooint and they want it returned. Only issue ism. I want the car for the price we agreed on and signed the order forms for.
  6. Hi, Ive just bough a subaru impreza for my partner. Its a project to do up over time until she passes her test. I used sky insursnce last night to insure her on it to drive around when its quite l learn in. Sky insurance was charging £488 for the year and everyone else was £1700+. Obviously i went with sky. The car is due out the garagr today at 1pm and sky have just phoned me to say the insurance has been cancelled due to a problem with the underwriting on their behalf and they cannot insure such a powerful car for a learner driver. No the money will take 3-5 days to go into my bank and i dont have enough to insure the car due to this!
  7. Hi, unsure where to post this but it is motoring related, Rented a (4door focus) from avis on 26th may which went through fine, annoyingly they tried pawning me off wi a 3 door corsa and i refused then got it upgraded free to a new MG6. Yesterdy (thursday 7th) i booked a car last minute at around 7pm to pickup at 10pm to start a journey at 4am for a job interview 6hours away from me. After arriving at avis rental desk they informed me that i cannot get any car from them as i am only 22, i kindly told them i rented from them only around 3-4 weeks aho, the man checked the system and sure enough i was correct. He phoned his manager and was advised i still cannot get a car because im under (23) avis minimum age for rental, nowere on there website/T&C's does it say this. He also informed me that the woman that let me drive the car on the 26th may let me drive off uninsured Due to 2 staff not reading my drivers licence properly and noticing my age. So ive now missed my inteview (potentially life ruining as it was a very good job!) Drove uninsured (which noones admitting to signing me in) It was near impossible for me to get a new car i had to change my interview to a later time, go book a new car with national car hire, paid the £73 hire and an extra £250 damage and still have no money back from avis rental! Where do i stand on this? Big compensation? Its not my falt there website diesnt state FULL T&c's and spclearley says drivers aged 21+ can hire, you must be 23+ to pau. By cash or credit card and anyone 25 and under pays a young drivers feee which i was charged!
  8. Ooh yes! they sold it to me as a form of "insurance" since my cotents insurance didnt cover it.
  9. I plan on dumping it tomorrow! after re-reading the terma and conditions which i was told to "sign and take awat to read" theyv also mis-sold me OSC! Sorry for the language. Thanks for the help dx
  10. Hi i was just wondering if i would be entitled to claim back all charges from around 07/08 to now as i just found out that under the "Social Security Administration Act 1992 Miscellaneous Certain benefit to be inalienable ** " That includes job seekers which i have claimed on and off for years as majority of my work has been temporary contracts. I have been gettin charges taken off me for around £20-30 leaving me short on money and relying on family.

  13. Looking for some help towards brighthouse.. I feel i was missold the OSC for a cooker i got and also feel like i was pressured into taking it or i wont get the cooker... I went without a cooket and tried saving for weeks but couldnt manage so i gave in and went to BH! They were saying if my home contents insurance doesnt cover the cooker then i cant have it.. And personally i feelni dont need this as cookers come with a manufacture garuntee anyway?... and really ive never had a cooker break on me and i had my grans 30 year old cooker and it was going fine ! Any advice towards this? Does this come under PPI or anything like that? Can i claim this money back? Thanks in advance
  14. Thanks for the reply. Well ive called twice and offerd them £3.40 maximum and they keep demanding £20 which they are not gettin from me atall!! Problem is my other-half recieves no benefits anymore as its all in my name and they wont let me pay it for her. Id think they would jump at the chance of getting money from someone but theyr not accepting it unless its from her. And they repeat this over and over although itell them she has 0% income its all me.
  15. Hi there i was just looking for some info in regards to the title of this post. Ive recently declared to the council and job centre out of the kindness of my heart that i have moved in with my girlfriend. They took my kindness with great pleasute and stopped our housing benefit, job seekers, council tax benefit and income support. We then lived off £20 for 2 weeks until everything got sorted. Then they sent out 5/6 letters with council tax arrears (sewrage and water) of about £450. I phoned them up straight away at 9am after recieving my exciting new letters! to be told it can be paid using a payment card straight to the council and they'll get on sent out for me. Great thats excellent thank you bye-bye. Day2 ( the next day ) I was awakend with more mail. Now this time time from Walker Love saying that she owea them the money of £500 odd for council tax passed to them by the council. Now im angry due to the council doing this after they said i can pay them back. Ok NOW the fun begins. Why wait 3 years to tell her she hasnt been paying water or sewrage? She wasnt told council tax benefit covers only just council tax... Id automatically assume if its all on one bill it all gets coverd. Id be more than happy to pay the extra £10/20 a month toqards the water etc if she was told.. Walker love wont let me pay off her debts as its on her name. But she has no income as all the money comes to me! and since its not my debt they wont let me pay. any advice on this? Pay up? Fight it? i have offerd to pau 3.40 a week as i currently have 200 every 2 weeks to feed me my girlfriend and our child. But they are telling me 20 minimum which i have refuse and explained icannot afford this accept the 3.40. Thanks in advance.
