  1. The defendant in a fast track claim has made an offer for an amount which is acceptable to the claimant but is insisting on a confidentiality clause which the claimant does not want to sign. What are the potential cost implications if the claimant continues with the claim and is awarded that amount or less?
  2. My daughter bought a new flat, made by Barratt homes about 18 months ago. Last week she had a letter from some solicitors called FS Legal about a "Leasehold Action Group for your Development", essentially warning her of the potential problem of a ground rent clause which may make life difficult in the future. I have the agreement but can't work out if she has a problem or not. Does anyone know what to look for? who could point me in the right direction? Many thanks. Regards to all. Fred
  3. Hey, I am trying to sort out my finances and the car is massive chunk. We took the loan out in Oct 2015 and has been paying £424 p/month of which just over £150 is being used to pay the capital - the rest is interest. When can I ask to return the car and where does the half way point hit ? is it once half the loan value has been paid (half the cars purchase price) or once have the total loan value (inc interest) has been paid? Many Thanks Scott
  4. Hi! I have used the break clause in my tenancy contract to terminate it. It required a 2 month notice period, which I gave and was accepted by the landlord's agency. This means that my tenancy agreement ends by the 25th of August. Nevertheless, my rental period usually runs from the 8th of each month. I have assumed that, if the tenancy contract ends by the 25th I would only have to pay from the 8th to the 25th but the letting agent is asking for a full month rent... He says the overpaid money will be returned and that they do this to protect them from tenants not leaving at the end of
  5. Can anyone advise on whether the following is a valid Pilon clause and therefore imediatly dissmiss under the contract? The company policy is to pay the the statutoury maximunm redundancy payment. Whether or not the notice period will be worked will be at the company discretion. Regards
  6. I have had an ongoing claim with Jet2 for compensation following a fight delay in Feb 2011. There are six family members in the group, my wife and I, and four children under 16. I am the lead passenger and paid for the flights and the booking was made using my Jet2 account. It was a technical fault and they have been using the “unexpected circumstances” excuse since 2011, and most recently said they were waiting the outcome of their appeal to the Supreme Court which they said would affect the outcome of my claim. When the Supreme Court refused permission for them to appeal, I wrote again
  7. Hi all, We intend to enact the 6-month break clause in our AST, as we will be emigrating soon. It seems to be the 'standard' 2-months-notice affair, but the wording has me really confused: Surprisingly, this agreement is not approved by the Plain English Campaign! The tenancy began on the 28th February, so would it then end on the 27th August if served correctly? If so, would I need to serve the notice on the 27th or 28th June?
  8. Hello, I have recently moved out of an apartment during the fixed 6 month term of an assured shorthold tenancy. The landlord accepted our notice and did not mention us needing to pay any rent. However when we asked for our deposit to be returned they said it would not be and have informed "mydeposits" that we will not be due any as we terminated the tenancy early. Our contract contains the following clause "termination by the tenant - If the tenant requires to terminate this agreement, the tenant must give written notice to the company and the period of notice shall not be less tha
  9. Hi,Can someone please help me?

  10. Hi, I received a letter from a Solicitor yesterday on behalf of the Landlord to inform me that he is exercising his rights under the break clause in my Tenancy Agreement and that they require possession of the property on the 31st July. However, the name of the landlord on the legal notice is completely different from the name of the landlord on my tenancy agreement (I know from my actual landlord that the person serving the notice is a joint owner of the property). My question is, is this notice legal, as the name does not match my Tenancy agreement? My understanding is that altho
  11. At the time I got my job I was unemployed so didn't really have a lot of room for manure, If I turned the job down no JSA, and I never found out about the overtime clause until I had been in the job 2-3 weeks. I will be brutally honest, I'd rather not be there at all let alone stay any longer than necessary so this over time clause kills me. We already work 45 hours basic let alone over time, Is there anyway out? I know all about the 48 hour limit but its averaged out over X amount of weeks. Its the fact all plans have to be dropped as and when asked or your marched into the office
  12. Hi , i have a hire purchase agreement with black horse, i have paid 22 out of 48 payments and i am looking to hand the car back to start Fresh. There is a baloon payment at the end of the term to keep the car but i want a new one now, i was told i could hand this back at the halfway (24month) point but upon read my documents it says it can be handed back once i have paid £14,775 which wont be untill november.

  13. Hello , I'm new to this forum but hope someone can advise me on the following. I have worked for 2 days per week in a retail shop as assistant manager for 11 years. It's a small friendly shop where I often advise customers and get involved in stock ordering.I effectively run the shop for several weeks of the year when the owner is abroad. The owner is 'getting on' and is preparing to put the business up for sale. As part of this she has asked me to sign a contract of employment which seems to be of standard format but I am not happy to include the non-competition clause which states that I
  14. Hello all, Its been a long time since I have posted on CAG, but it was the first place I thought of in relation to a nagging issue which has arisen and I thought perhaps someone might be able to definitively answer an employment related question here. I have been employed full time by a private company for the last six months. A month or so ago each employee was asked to sign an updated version of our contract of employment. We were told by our manager that there were a few minor changes. I signed the contract, and despite what I am about to post below, do not regret doing so,
  15. My employer has decided to move me to another site this is part of the outcome of a disciplinary I am also getting a final written warning. at my appeal hearing I said I was not happy to be moved and asked how they can move me without consultation as there is no mobility clause in my contract it just states my place of work. I TUPE transferred to this company about a year ago and upon starting with them received a letter stating that all my terms and conditions remain unchanged. At the appeal hearing the manager tried to tell me that TUPE is only for when you first transfer and then as time go

  17. Hi, Can you please help interpreting the below break clause? "On or prior to the date the TENTH rental payment is due either the Landlord or the Tenant may give written notice to terminate this Tenancy Agreement on the last day of the TWELTH month. At the end of such notice the tenancy shall end and all obligations and responsibilities shall cease; subject nevertheless to any claim by either party against the other in respect of any breach of any of the terms and conditions of the agreement.

  18. Hello, I paid £109.95 for a Dolls house advertised as being 'Complete with Furniture' from an online retailer. The box did not contain the furniture. The company have apologised and said that they will amend their website and have said that "We have now amended our website and as advisedin the terms and conditions which you agreed to when orderingdescriptions can differ from the product." Their terms and conditions say: "Although we aim to keep the Website as up to date as possible, the information including Product Descriptions appearing on this Website at a particular time
  19. Here is a brief rundown of the situation I was offered an interview in writing for a job based at a certain location (i will refer to this as location x) I went to the interview, was offered the job which i accepted as the contract stated in big bold letters the address at which i will be based (location x), OR (in smaller letters) any other location that was discussed at the interview OR any of the addresses of the company. I made sure i got emails from the two people who interviewed me stating that the only place that was discussed was location x. I started the job (which
  20. In a contract I'm about to sign (as a tenant), there is the shortest and least explained break clause I have ever seen: "Fixed Term From 08/07/2012 until 07/07/2015. (36 months). Renewable if agreed by both parties 6 weeks notice must be given if the tenants wish to extend the lease. Break at 12 months with 2 months previous written notice by either party. Option to review rent after 18 months" I know the contract term is unusually long, and I can only break it after a year - I'm fine with that, planning to stay. Here is the question: Can I break this contra
