  1. I told them that I don't owe them anything and to go away as I don't acknowledge that I owe that company anything. They can do one.
  2. Hi, Just a quick one seeking clarification. I got a CCJ in 2008 so it is now 11 years old. This was a HSBC account. There was never any further action taken to recover the money following the CCJ. A company called Robinson Way have now been in touch trying to claim this money. My belief was that with no action being taken for over 6 years that they couldn't now pursue this?
  3. I am waiting for the finance company to get this car inspected. They say this can be four weeks, in the meantime I am paying finance for a car that has broken down four times in less than three month's. What is a reasonable amount of time to wait for this to happen. I am without a car, can I just reject this now as I am getting nowhere fast?
  4. Getting a refund will be the hard part. I am trying to reject the car as "unfit for purpose" let's see how it goes. Thanks for your help.
  5. All the miles are done on A-Roads and motorway as per the handbook. Do not tell me that this is a normal problem.
  6. After a few weeks? Driver error. Depress clutch and it should return, not just stay on the floor. The car is always driven at 40mph at least down the dual carriageway. The dpf shouldn't clog every week or about 30 miles?
  7. Update, The car got fixed and paid for by the finance company. However the first problem which was reported DPF clogging, which was returned within a week of purchasing has come back and now the engine has a fault. The garage are claiming this is "wear and tear". This car was purchased less than four month's ago! The finance company are getting an independent inspection done. Avoid Crescent Cars in Baldock, they are the biggest Cowboys ever.
  8. So this letter should go to the HP company? They have agreed to pay for the repair now anyway but as a matter of interest? Thanks for everyones help. It is much appreciated. Thank you.
  9. I have the letter all ready to go. I am getting the car delivered to them on Monday be recovery which is £50. I am giving them 14 days to refund my money for the repair and the recovery as they told me the car had six month's warranty I cancelled my Recovery services. The letter reads: 02/11/2018 Dear Sir or Madam, REFERENCE: P****/Crescent Cars Limited-Peugeot 207 I purchased a Peugeot 207 Registration number BJ***** from Crescent Cars Limited. At the point of purchase I paid £2850. This Peugeot 207 is unfit for purpose. I purchased the car on the 16th of September 2018. After using the car for just over six weeks and less than 200 miles the clutch has failed completely. The Consumer Rights Act 2015 makes it an implied term of the contract I have with Crescent Cars Limited that goods be as described, fit for purpose and of satisfactory quality. As you are in breach of contract and and I've owned the product for less than 6 month’s and you are refusing to repair or replace this vehicle, I am within my statutory rights to ask for a refund of up to 100% of the original cost paid. I am giving you notice that you have refused to repair the car that I am expecting a refund from you for the costs of the repairs and the recovery of the Vehicle. This is £533 for the repair and £50 recovery. I await confirmation that you will provide the remedy set out above within 14 days of the date of this letter. After this date I shall be making a Small Claim against you in court. Yours faithfully, Anthony P*****
  10. Yes I have reported it to the finance company but they are dragging their heals. I just need a car.
  11. Hi, I purchased a Peugeot 207 from a reputable dealer (or so I thought) for just under £3000 just over six weeks ago. This car is on finance. The car broke down, the clutch has gone completely, just after six weeks and I have driven less than 200 miles in the car. The dealer are blaming me for the fault and are refusing to put this right. I have quoted the consumer law 2015 at them stating that they have to prove the car didn't have the fault when I purchased it. They are still refusing to deal with the situation and that I have to pay for repair. Now I am desperate to get the car back on the road as I use it to commute and to pick up my kids from my estranged spouse. Should I pay for repair and try to claim it back? Should I just cancel the finance? Any advice on this welcome. Thanks Oh and to name and shame the dealer this is "Crescent Cars" in Baldock Hertfordshire.
  12. HI, I got dismissed recently and I was wondering if I have to go through the company's appeal procedure or can I go straight to industrial tribunal? The basis of my appeal/tribunal is that I have been treated completely differently to other employees in the same situation and that management have been highly inconsistent. I complained about a manager and since then management have done their hardest to get me sacked. Another employee with exactly the same complaint against them and a proven history of defrauding the company (something I haven't done) hasn't even had any warnings. I don't really want to appeal as I wouldn't work for this company again if they paid me double. If I won an appeal could I then walk on grounds of constructive dismissal and go to tribunal?
  13. But I wasn't confrontational, at all, one bit, that's what's getting to me. Like I said the other guy involved didn't feel upset by it at all and we get on really well.
  14. Like I said before, it is blatantly obvious my manager wants me out and she is jumping on anything to get that result. This happened 3 weeks ago, no one complained and it's only through an informal chat she was having that it even came to light. There have been situations in the past with other employees who've verbally threatened violence using foul language and management were advised to do something about it, but it was swept under the carpet. This as well as loads of other incidents of overlooked bad conduct is not unusual where I work, If they do sack me where do I stand to take legal action about the way I've been treated compared to other emplyees, as surely in this day and age with laws to protect, my manager cannot get away with persecuting me like this. I work hard, get performance pointers regularly and rarely miss a day of work.
