  1. Hi folks, If this isn't in the right place could the mods move it please, it concerns a boiler I had installed in April 2016. When my wife and I moved into our current home in March 2016 we had the heating system replaced by a company called Ecovolve. Ecovolve have subsequently gone out of business. The boiler is an Alpha 28KW model. The boiler has developed a fault whereby it loses pressure over time. I have had my usual heating engineer out to inspect it and he has diagnosed a faulty pressure vessel within the boiler itself. After pressurizing the vessel and filling the system
  2. GAS SUPERSTORE LEICESTER GOES BUST TAKING EVERYONE'S MONEY THEN THE SAME (MD) DIRECTOR THEN SETS UP NEW COMPANY!

  3. Monopoly chiefs have set up a Christmas hotline to prevent board game bust-ups over the festive period. The helpline is to open in light of a survey that found 51% of Monopoly games end in a row. The most common cause of quarrels was due to people "making up the rules as they go along". The hotline will open from 24th - 26th December, when families will be able to get mediation on any game-based arguments. http://www.itv.com/news/2016-12-19/monopoly-christmas-helpline-opens-to-prevent-boardgame-bust-ups/

  5. In a sad turn of events, Low Cost Travel Group has gone bust. Very sad for me as I used to work for them. Anyone travelling needs to make sure they keep an eye on their holiday. MSE has a great guide for what to do... As a general rule - Flights should have already been paid for, hotels mostly wont have. Chargeback if paid on CC over £100 with Section 75 Chargeback on DC may be possible but check with your bank. Remember to record everything in case you need it for the future. Administrators are Smith & Williamson
  6. RBS results show another big loss and have now not made a profit since 2007. The top US Banks are still holding such massive liabilities, that many believe any major market shock could cause a crash worse than 07/08. One of the top Banks JP Morgan is apparently of major concern and if you Google about them, you will see there are reports of people raising worries about their financial position. There are also reports that the Banks are currently going through a programme of taking on more consumer and corporate credit. Given that they are not in a healthy position, you would questi
  7. I purchased a Sony LCD 40 inch TV from Preston Sony Centre, the store closed about 2 years ago. The TV failed just before the expiration of the 5 year warranty.Ii contacted the parent company Sony who told me to take it to the nearest repairer to me. The TV according to the repairer can't be repaired economically as the part is no longer available( although Sony say they will have parts available for 7 years) therefore the whole screen would have to be replaced. The repairer cannot get the parts from Sony and Sony keep telling me that they are looking for the warranty. This has now been going
  8. Hi Guys In 2012 I purchased a car through Carcraft over a 5 year agreement. When signing up, I also paid around £2000 extra for their Drive Happy Package which included MOT's, Services, and RAC Cover for 5 years. Now they have gone bust I've been told they are no longer honouring the package. I was due for my "free" service next Monday. Where do I stand?

  9. Hi, I'm new to this forum and see that most posts are regarding speeding but I wonder if anyone can help with a PCN for unloading in a bus lane. The PCN is issued for being "Stopped on a restricted bus stop/stand however the location wasn't a bus stop it was a bus lane. I'm probably lutching at straws but are the two the same or can I appeal on the grounds that the offence wasn't committed on s bus stop. Unfortunately i had no choice as there was nowhere else to park up and had to make the delivery. Any help will be gratefully received.

  12. I am a new member (12 month subscription) at a sports club that I have recently learnt is soon to run out of money and is no loger able to pay it's debts to the bank (just under 1 million in total). This is a members club, not a Ltd business. The general consensus is that the bank will take over the running of the club, and eventually it will be sold to a buyer and current members will not really be affected either way. I am not so confident. Would there be any legal requirement for the new owners to honor existing members? Or would the bank even continue running the club and no

  14. The number of pensioners becoming insolvent has risen to its highest level since records began more than 50 years ago. Over the past six years, the annual toll has increased by more than 100 per cent, a survey revealed.

  17. I have some issues with my LL, and have spent many an hour hammering the internet for information – I require additional clarification on what I’ve found out so far, any advice would be much appreciated! I have been a tenant with the same LA for over 2 years and lived in two properties through them. I moved into my current rented property in September 2009, when my LL purchased the property I was renting at the time, and I agreed to rent her property through the same LA. In January this year, the LA asked that all payments should be made to them in cash as they were ‘having problems
