  1. Thanks fkofilee, sometimes going to the top is the only way to force a reply.
  2. They did a 'hard' credit check/score - an actual credit application. That does affect future credit scoring, even if it was not taken. I subsequently queried this with Experian after reading your reply telling me I was asking for things that are completely incorrect or gibberish.
  3. **2) who can I complain 'to' to ensure Virgin are exposed for this practice?
  4. Hi there, seeking advice of the legal variety... Over a month ago now, Virgin Mobile called me as an existing customer to try to upsell me a new phone and tariff. After discussion an offer was made that was too good to decline. A new S8 and suitable tariff for £29 per month over the period of 24 months. The offer was made of two parts, a loan for the device at £25 per month and the tariff of £4 per month. At the end of the 24 month period, I would just be paying the tariff of £4 per month. I was pleased with this offer and accepted. I confirmed the offer
  5. Hi there I recently took up Sky on an offer regarding SkyQ. This included a main 1TB box and a smaller mini box. In short: In the initial call making me the offer (retentions team) there was no mention of a fee for multi-room services. I raised a complaint about this to which I requested the call to be listened to. I was told subsequently that the call was listened to and the monthly fee was mentioned. I then made a SAR and got a copy of the call recording and system log notes. The call contains no mention of the multi-room fee. So in short I've bee
  6. I think a small sign on the fence advising not to park on the bit of land may be needed but I'm not sure how effective it would be. A suggestion that has been talked about between myself and another neighbour is to place some kind of raised object on the strip of land to prevent a car pulling onto it. Even one of those metal posts maybe that can be leaned down or locked vertically? Mr P
  7. If the drive is blocked, local authority do have the power to issue a PCN. They have advised this. If a car is not on the drive it makes no difference. What about access to it? When their wing mirrors are scarped across the fence it does both mark the fence and their mirrors. I would like them just not to do it!
  8. I've no issues with people parking on the road, as I mentioned. The obstruction of my drive and the damage to my fence is the issue. I've no interest is causing any arguments or conflict. I've not said it's my neighbours, they all park fine.
  9. Hello Michael, the road is owned and maintained by the local authority Mr P
  10. Hi HB , When I look at the map from the land registry, the property boundary goes to the road, there isn't any marking to show the strip in question as being separate. Mr P
  11. Hi CAGgers, Help & advise needed on a parking issue. It has two parts to it. Background: My property has a drive way to the rear which connects directly to local authority maintained road/cul-de-sac. The boundary of the drive and road is marked by what can only be described as stones in the ground. The drive, stones and road are all on the same level (so no dropped kerb access) just an easy roll across the boundary to access. At the same time, parallel to the drive is my rear garden which has a fence on 3 sides. So the fence separates my drive and garden, the r
  12. Just to update - it turns out my wife didn't change the V5 details when we moved so the original PCN went the old address. Ironically it was about 10 days after our mail redirect expired. The new occupants passed any mail to our old neighbors who passed it on to us after we checked. So considering they had the wrong address originally and subsequently had to send a 2nd notice after checking where we did live, it is considered reasonable diligence. Subsequently my wife has since attended a driving awareness course Thanks all for you input.
  13. Hi there, Looking for advice on how to handle & respond to the following: Received NIP today 10th March 2016, the NIP was dated 9th March 2016 with the alleged offence occurring on 13th December 2015. Offence was 41 in a 30 zone. The wife was driving at the time. The wife has been the registered owner/keeper for about 4 yrs. The vehicle and plate have been registered at the current address for over 12 months. I've seen comments and advice about NIPs needing to be served within 14 days of the offence, which this is clearly outside, but what I wanted to kno
  14. Just an update on this - it came to nothing in the end as hoped/expected...no further action....I did however make it known my feelings on the reasons for the allegations!
  15. Hi Stu007, yes they are listed but unfortunately CQC do not deal with complaints or these types of problems. They only look at issues that they find upon inspection. As an aside the items being thrown over made me take more notice in what was occurring at the property and as such I observed things which I would consider to be poor care & supervision. Just for example a lit BBQ being left with only the vulnerable adults in attendance, one of the adults trying to smash a window with his elbow for about 10 minutes and no one coming to stop him. These observations were shared with the
