  1. Sorry its long just want to include all the details. On the 17th March I bought a 1.6 16v petrol Citroen Xsara Picasso 77k on clock from Trade Cars of Cleckheaton http://www.tradecarscleckheaton.co.uk/ for £1200 paying £700 cash and £500 on a debit card. On viewing the car when I first started it the car gave off quite a bit of smoke for about the first 30 seconds which cleared, the garage staff said, "it will be just condensation as its been standing for while". I test drove it and it drove ok apart from a front anti-roll bar needing replacing which I agreed to do so I bought it
  2. Hi, I’m new - after reading so many posts over the last few days I thought this may be the best place to ask for advice. So, last year my sister got caught receiving tax credit payments whilst her partner was still living there, she received a £300 penalty and was asked to pay back the £8k she received. A few months after this she did actually split with her partner and, to make ends meet (she has 3 children and works part time) she started a new claim as a single parent and started receiving tax credits again. She started seeing her ex again, he was staying a few nights a week and they
  3. 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 des
  4. Hi All, I purchased a Galaxy S7 at the end January 2018 from Cash Converts for 250. It has been in a case since buying it with screen protector. Last night the screen has got a line through it . I looked at receipt and spoke with Cash Converters and they only offer 6 months warrant - No help at all. I am aware there should be a less expectation regarding the quality of second hand items and the fact warranty is optional. I am more interested in my rights under the CRA. A 250 pound phone should last longer in my eyes than 8 months! I have no experience with civil law. I jus
  5. 2 weeks ago today I purchased from a dealer a Vauxhall zafira 2003 MOTd till March I was told it had only just undergone a service and was fine for driving In urgent need, I paid £675 and they delivered it when it was ready, Being a dealer I trusted them totally, they had nothing but good feedback Bare in mind also I am a new driver and unsure what to look for in cars ie faults and things, but she test drove perfectly. A few days later going down hill, with 4 children in the car My brakes failed, managed to get to a garage safely and quickly and paid for them to be sorted, consid
  6. Hi there, Yesterday I received a letter from Lowell & 118 (together in one envelope) that Lowell are now the new owners of a 12 month unsecured loan I stopped paying in November 2015. During this period I also defaulted on 4 loans with 4 different payday companies however by now I have taken care of all but this one. I fully intend to take care of the last of my mess which rules out the PROVE IT route but there are a few stumbling blocks before I can do so. After checking my credit report I notice a second default has been placed on my account. How do I go about getting this
  7. I Bought a second hand Audi a couple of months back, part exchanging my old car. We are not talking a brand new car here but then there's not much change from15k either. From my first dealings with the garage they always seemed friendly and helpful but communication was always a challenge in that I constantly got different information depending on who I spoke to. Messages were not passed on and emails not answered. Having finally collected the car and after a few communication issues, more problems began to arise. Within a few days the new smelling car started to have a foul odour and it
  8. Has anyone been asked to fill in a second full PPI questionnaire after completing their online form? I rang them up about this and they said that the posted questionnaire had some additional questions and this would help them to assess the complaint. I'm naturally concerned that this is another delaying tactic as they do seem to be going at a glacial pace. I also wonder whether they're looking for differences between the online submission (that they don't send you a copy of) and the new form. On balance I don't think I'll bother to spend another half hour providing them with inform
  9. Hi This is the second post I have going at the moment but I really need to clarify. Back in 2009 I took a second mortgage. I had a fixed rate for 4 years then went to tracker. After 4 yrs and credit crunch I said to the lender I would like to change my rate to be told I couldn't as it was a secured loan not a mortgage. I stated no its a second mortgage and all my paperwork refers to it as a mortgage. I now also own my own home Mortgage free (still own and selling the property with the second mortg,) in my paperwork it states I can transfer the loan onto the new propert
  10. Hello, Found myself stuck in a bit of a situation and feel over my head. Have just received a letter from Lowell solicitors in the post titled 'Second notice of county court judgment (ccj) arrears - £150' This is from an old debt from orange dated 2013 or thereabouts. i last received a letter from them in 2015 and have never contacted them in-regards to the debt. The letter starts We wrote to you previously regarding your judgment arrears, but we are yet to receive the payment as required under the terms of your CCJ. As a result you currently have arrears of £150.00 Th
  11. Hi All, On 4-Aug-2017 I test drove VW EOS 2.0 FSI(2006) convertible which has done 67500 from a car dealer in Birmingham. Paid the deposit of 300£ to confirm the same day. Asked him to fix minor things like Covering cigarette holes from seats at a couple of location, changing wheel caps, under bonnet insulation and full valet. Dealer verbally agreed to get this fixed and said he will get the 12 months MOT done as advertised on Autotrader within a couple of days and asked me to transfer remaining amount 3450£ asap. On 5-Aug-2017 I transferred the remaining am
  12. Hi All, A friend of mine is having a problem that I'm helping with. He purchased a secondhand Mercedes sports car for £26,000 from what he considered a reputable car dealer (not main dealer)it was delivered Thursday 13th July 2017. They are FCA regulated (Ref No 658267 ) and a representative of (MBI) Limited (Ref No 312143) He paid £10,000 deposit cash and the rest on finance with Close, the first day he noticed problems which were reported the second day, he thought there were gearbox problems and noticed the active intelligent lights were not working. He was asked
  13. Ok, posting this on behalf of my soon to be sister-in-law. I've tried to get what I thought were all the pertinent facts but I'm sure there are things missing. Anyway, getting to the issue. On 28th April 2017 she purchased a 64 plate Renault Clio from a garage. When test driving the car it had flagged up it had a puncture via the pressure monitor, but the garage advised they would get this sorted. On picking up the car the issue had indeed been sorted so she drove away happy. 1 week later she took the car back to the garage for the first time due to a scraping noise when using the brake
  14. I was on Incapacity Benefit at one time and years ago was sent an ESA50. I filled it in, sent it back, and was granted ESA WRAG, and never had a WCA. Now another ESA50 has arrived, and now I'm thinking they're going to haul me before a WCA this time. I'm also afraid that this means that my ESA has already stopped. Is this so? BTW, should I take my time in sending it back, or send it back as soon as I can? Should it also be Special Delivery?
  15. Hello there, my wife received a letter from ParkingEye Monday 22nd May dated 17th May 2017. This is regarding an outstanding parking charge amount due of £100 from Holiday Inn Guildford with the alleged offence occurring 5th April 2017. My main concern is that my wife did not receive a PCN beforehand. In the letter it states that 29 days have passed from the notice of parking but this is the first correspondence received. I still have the right to appeal but only if there are mitigating circumstances as the initial 28 days to appeal have passed.
  16. I purchased a car on the 08/04/17 from Jason Atterbury Cars in Leicester. It came with a clean MOT on checking out previous MOTs online I discovered some discrepancies. I took the car for a pre MOT check at my local testing station on the 29/04/17 they found that the car should of failed its MOT on 2 issues and also have 8 advisories on it. The car was MOTd by ther dealer on the 21/03/17 where it failed on exhaust gasses leaking and an advisory for the front shocker having a misting of oil. on the retest done on the 27/04/17 it passed as the exhaust had been w

  19. Hi there I am a Support Worker employed by a city council. I support someone with a very mild learning difficulty, but they are totally independent. They are able to cook, clean, self-travel, etc. by themselves, and our team is present 24 hours a day to ensure the service user does not make unsafe decisions about relationships, or get in trouble with the police for anti-social behaviour.

  20. Hi there people, I have bought on a part exchange a second hand car... All good to go...only that while driving home car stopped 2 times. I have stopped at the first petrol station and filled up a £25.00 as these guys would only leave you on red just enough to make it to the first station available. Anyway, to cut the story short I have called the guy ( trade ) saying that as the car has problems I will return it and would want my car back.... Finally done and dusted but when asked about the petrol money he said that he would not give me any money.... why??? The care supposed to be
  21. Hello everyone - I'm looking for some recommendations following a problem with an EE contract and phone. This is the current situation: My partner has a monthly contract with EE. Her phone stopped working so she took it in for repair under warranty. When it came back it was reported to be unrepairable due to water damage, even though it has been nowhere near water. She asked if she could buy a replacement phone to use with the existing monthly contract and was told by the guy in the EE shop that there was no way to do this because EE only sold phones for PAYG purposes not fo
  22. Hi I just bought a second hand car from what I thought was a second hand car dealer on Gumtree called West Cars. I bought the car on 6th Nov. I had only driven it a couple of times and it seemed fine at first but yesterday driving back from work the engine cut out on five separate times when slowing down at various junctions and it took several attempts to restart it. I also noticed a burning smell coming from the back of the car which wasn't there when I test drove it. The car was delivered to me at my home address. The ad said it was a good runner, had a long MOT and only one previ
  23. Looking for some advice please. I bought a second hand car just under six months ago, it is on HP. I also took out an aftermarket warranty with Warranty Direct. The dealer gave a 3 month warranty but I know the company they use are rubbish so I decided to get my own. A few weeks ago it broke down. Had it towed to my local garage (didn't take it back to where I bought it as its quite a way from where I live and they have any proper workshop facilities). To cut a long story short the engine has been stripped right down, and the diagnosis is seiz
  24. Hi All This is a long post so bear with me. I've done a lot of research and I think I know what I'm doing but I would really like to hear your thoughts, comments and suggestions on my tail so far. At this point in time small claims is unavoidable so any suggestions where my claim is weak and what I could do to address it would be greatly appreciated. I have laid out the story so far in a time line below. Many Thanks Jonathan At the beginning of May I purchased a Mercedes A Class A200 for £3000 including delivery. I stupidly bought it unseen from a dealer over 150 miles away using my
  25. Sorry for the lengthy post Bought a second hand 4x4 off a dealer, and it's had a wealth of problems. It was out of warranty (3 months - though I know this mean nothing), we took it to a local garage - in fact, we actually only took it to a local garage because of another issue, so weren't to know we should have taken it to the dealer (who's mechanics would not have been able to look at it for at least a week anyway). Here's my letter so far below (my partner is the owner, so in the letter I read as the partner). Our issue is right now, that he has agreed
