  1. Thanks so much for your support ☺ After i asked the shop to furnish me with the sellers last name and address and also told them that i woukd be naming them in the suit, they must have discussed it with the seller who then finally contacted me. He said i wouldn't have a leg to stand on but he did agree to finish the deal, so he has his £200 blance and i have my new ring. I was very apologetic though because i do understand his position, i just didn't think it was right that we couldn't compromise or even discuss it. So thanks again
  2. Hi Ericsbrother, Yes ive spoken to the shop via Facebook messages. Theyve been really nice but not helpful, they've basically said i can't sue them as its nothing to do with them because they just rent out the cabinets and that the business has since changed hands so its a different owner, although the seller still has his cabinet there. They also say that they only hold deposits for a certain length of time, but they couldn't tell me how long that is, so i sent them a picture of my receipt that has no t's & c's on it. I told them id be willing to lose some of my de
  3. Thank you BankFodder, i know the 'reasonable time' is an issue but i really have been seriously ill, so I've tried appeal to the sellers sense of decency or fairness but i havent got anywhere. Anyway im going to take my chances in small claims court not that i want to but i think this could have been resolved without court. So my real query is do i sue him or the shop that houses his cabinet. They gave me the receipt and i think ive got little or no chance of getting the sellers details.

  5. Also, if someone does win do they actually get the money? I remember in the past that people won their case but still didnt get their money..
  6. Thank you Ericsbrother ill try that first and see what they say.
  7. Hi everyone, 15 months ago i put a large deposit on a piece of jewellery in one of those antique places where sellers have their own cabinet. It was for a ring which was app £1300, i gave the seller two of my rings plus £100 & i owed £200. I know 15 months is a long time but i suddenly became seriously ill out of the blue with severe sepis, ecoli and terminal cancer. I wasnt expected to survive but i did and as soon as i was strong enough i contacted the antiques shop & the seller to see if i could still buy it or have a credit note or something. I have the receipt
  8. Thank you.. No the only reason they give is this 'lettings strategy'. But why on earth can't people have a spare room when they pay rent? Well ive appealed again,so il just have to wait & see. Just wondered if anyone knew if it was legal what theyre saying/doing. I mean i need to downsize & ive already sold one set of bedroom furniture,but ive had a life for the past 45yrs,i need a real place not a shoe box.
  9. Ps...its an under-occupancy problem. Yet they have just give my single friend a 2 bed flat on the same street....
  10. Hi everyone, I will try to keep this short as its quite lengthy. I live alone in a 3 bed Wakefield District Housing house,they bought all the housing stock form the local authority. When the Bedroom Tax came into force i was out of work & was hit by it for 2 bedrooms,but ive since re-trained and found employment so im now paying full rent & council tax. Back then i was told by WDH to put this house on the 'Homeswappers' website in order to downsize or get a lodger,so i put the house on the website. 10 months later ive managed to find a family who want to swap to my 3 bed hous
  11. Hi everyone, I just wanted to update you on the outcome for future ref. I wrote to DVLA and in the letter i told them that the buyer wouldnt give me the log book back and that i didnt have his contact details and that i had tried the police,basically giving them as much info as possible which wasnt a lot to be honest. Anyway they finally sent me a acknowledgement slip saying that it confirmed that i was no longer the registered keeper of the vehicle registration number ##### and that i have to keep it safe,which i will! I hope this will be the end of it but you never know Thanks for you
  12. Hi everyone,sorry about the delay in responding. I had another 'dodgy' phone conversation with the buyers girlfriend and she told me that the car was now at a garage in Huddersfield,i phoned them but no answer so decided to phone DVLA. They told me to put it all in writing to them,so i did and sent it off recorded delivery. So im just awaiting my punishment i suppose. They did tell me when i phoned that the car was still in my name :/ For further ref for others in this position and for the people on the thread who have commented i will come back and let you know what happens to me. Tha
  13. Thanks Tony No skeletons nope lol..just dont want to be arrested for conspiracy or whatever they call it,but i will be phoning the garage tomorrow and hopefully i can resolve this without it getting out of hand. Il let you know what the outcome is,just hope they havent done a logbook loan against it as ive read we arnt covered against it,anyway we'l see tomorrow thanks again
  14. Thanks Tony..Ive always been an honest person,maybe thats where im going wrong. I bought a car about 6yrs ago from a used car dealer and AGAIN in all the small talk and document swapping,i got half way home in the new car and the dealer foned me to say i hadn't paid for it! So i apologized and went back and paid lol,it was because we were talking. Anyway his girlfriend or someone has just text me to say its at a car dealers in Heckmondwike,West Yorkshire,so il phone them in the morning and see what happens. If your right and law is that he hasnt kept up his side of the sale then il report
