  1. Dear All, In the Courts and Tribunals Act 2007, it is suggested that once a warrant is issued against the debtor for a parking offence, then the vehicle cannot be sold or disposed of prior to levy or removal, until the debt is cleared. This of course leaves innocent people like Ethel and Albert two pensioners, having purchased a vehicle from London with outstanding parking tickets in a terrible and disgusting position. Along comes a bailiff with ANPR and removes the vehicle. The bailiff then states that the vehicle is subject to outstanding parking tickets, they will not return the
  2. Without going into the full scale of the problem my daughter contracted a bathroom fitter to replace her tiny bathroom. Two weeks on, and two men the bathroom is only half completed and it is a right shambles..from the tiling, leaking toilet which is also coming off the wall, leaking sink which has flooded the new units and ruined them, and also the new flooring, damage to the shower profiles so that the shower cubicle will not fit...the plumbing is all wrong, plus exensive damage to areas of her property. There is a long extensive list of problems. She asked him to stop work a week ago a
  3. All I will try and keep this succinct. I remortgaged my house in December 2017. Taking additional borrowings of £43k. the reason for this was my new partner and I had just started living together in my house. He gave up his rented place. He brought no equity to the table. I had approve 65% LTV. The reason for the additional borrowings was an extension and loft conversion. At the time of mortgage application both of us were working. The mortgage completed on 9th Dec. one week prior my partner told me he had resigned from work and effectively had no job. my mortgag
  4. Hi Guys, could do with some help... I took my car to a local car wash yesterday morning. Later on, after my car had dried, I noticed patches all over the car, where the lacquer had been power washed off. Some patches are quite large, so now my car looks an absolute mess. I returned to the car wash this morning to ask if there was anything they could do about it, and to be blunt, they dont. They weren't prepared to do anything. I asked for they're Public Liability Insurance details, only to be told they hadn't got any. I thought this was a legal re
  5. Our daughter got married and had her reception at our local golf club. The venue seemed perfect until the actual day. The photographs at the venue where restricted due to the golf. What and where we could have photos taken was not allowed on the day. We had 26 children on a very hot day banned from leaving the venue as they may upset the golfers. None of this was told us at any meetings. When the food was served they served the back tables and the top table the last. The pate was a sloppy mess The food was cold - the roast beef was dry and the turkey was chewy.
  6. Hi folks I was wondering if I may get some advise from you guys, if possible. I bought a Dell desktop PC direct from Dell around 6 months back, but it was delivered damaged by Dell's local courier, I called Dell to come and collect the damaged desktop for a replacement. it took them ages, almost a phone call to Dell everyday for more than 2 weeks, to respond and finally I called and told them to collect the units and provide a full refund. Dell finally arrange collection last month, 5months after I first contacted them, from their side and the desktop
  7. Does anyone know who to complain to if dis-satisfied with the funeral directors? I didn't want to give detail here incase I am in wrong thread or it's not something this website deals with. It is a very distressing time for me and I do not know where to turn. Thanks in advance.
  8. Hi I was wondering if anyone knew where we stood on our complaint to Thomson? I have never complained before so bit nervous.

  9. Hi My husband and I have both had contracts with vodafone for many years. When it came time for me to upgrade 2 years ago, vodafone offered a discounted deal if I took my phone as a second phone on my husbands account. This was a decent deal so my contract ended and his had both our phones. Two pay monthly contracts. Fast forward 2 years and my husbands contract for his phone ended and he upgraded to a new contract with vodafone. April this year the second phone contract ended (my phone). I waited a few months to decide what I was going t
  10. Through no fault of my own a lorry drove into me on a roundabout tearing off half my back bumper, the asssesor came round and stated that considering the age of my peugeot 206 it would most likely be irrepairable, yet i know the only thing wrong with the car is the damage caused by the accident as have spent time and money making it a decent car. I was shocked when ringing up hastings to hear that when the report from the assessor does come back and if it is deemed a right off i will be offered money for the value of my car but not be allowed the car back? In no writing in the policy does it s
  11. Hi I let my flat out for 12 months last year to a friend of a friend who towards the end of our tennancy agreement left to go 'travelling' without paying her electricity bill. Obviously I know now that I should have switched to a pre payment meter for the duration of her agreement. When she moved in she organised a switch of supplier to her name and I foolishly thought that any arears if any would be her responsibility and have absolutely nothing to do with me. Now that shes gone and im back home npower wont allow me to switch supplier unless i clear the debt in her name w
  12. Hi there, I am posting here as I have a bit of a dilemma which is getting me confused hopefully some of the learned forum members can help out. I went to Cape Town on holiday arriving on the 10th march. I booked a car online with orbitz for a BMW 1 series for 10days.

  16. Hi there, I got married last september and my husband moved in with me. He stays at home with the children, he does not work or claim any benefit at all. The only money coming into the house is my wage so I stupidly did not think I needed to tell tax credits as financially, nothing had changed. I got a letter yesterday saying that they had recieved information that I was living with my partner and I have until 15th October to tell them why i did not inform them otherwise my tax credits will be stopped and i will be prosecuted for giving false information. They didn't actually get his surname r
  17. Hello! Please could anyone help. My husband had a Halifax One Card between 2004 and 2008 we have found out that he had PPI on this account. We're trying to find out how much we paid and have been on the phone for about an hour speaking to 6 different telephone numbers and are still no further forward with how much we paid! Each dept gives another telephone number and we are going round in circles. Not sure how to get this info as the account has been closed since 2008 and they say they haven't got this info! If anyone has any advice it would be greatly appreciated!! Th
  18. I joined my local Total Fitness Health Club in May and happily attended for 2 months until one day I was denied access and told to go and see one of the membership consultants. He then informed me that I had not paid for the previous two months and asked if I could pay straight away. Mortified I asked him to check why no payments had been made and apologised profusely. then he tells me that it is because the girl who signed me up had not bothered to send my bank details to head office! Now they are telling me I have to either pay £60 straight away to cover the two months lost, or add
