  1. Hi all, I have recently moved to the Winterthur Way development in Basingstoke. I rent a property which includes a parking space. It wasn't until I moved into the flat that I was given a parking permit and told to use it when parking in my allocated space (This was something that was not mentioned in my tenancy agreement!). After moving in I received 2 x £60 parking charge notices for using visitors spaces (Returning within a 48 hour period) to drop off my furniture. I used the visitors space as I had to use a different car of a suitable size to drop the furniture off.
  2. News From Credit Strategy The above case shows that PDL firms are still failing. The firm, who is believed to be "Safety Net Credit TA/ Indigo Michael" The FCAs rules have helped but more must be done.
  3. Multiple agreements within section 18 consumer credit Act 1974 This is just a view and interpretation of s18 CCA and therefore we would advise anyone reading this bear that in mind Section 18 can be very useful concerning agreements where there is a main loan and payment protection insurance. Firstly lets look at what section 18 says 18.Multiple agreements. —(1) This section applies to an agreement (a “multiple agreement ”) if its terms are such as— (a)To place a part of it within one category of agreement mentioned in thi
  4. Hi guys, This isn't my usual post, so please excuse me if I miss out any information. Sometime around 3/4 years ago, my Grandmother had work done which was funded by a council grant to renew her Electrics, Central Heating, Windows, Bathroom, Kitchen, roof and facia boards. Soon after, the work was found to be unsatisfactory. The man at the council who issued the grant to the builders in question stopped responding to our calls and it was just accepted that we'd have to deal with these issues. Time has passed, and we've just not stopped finding faults. About 18 months ago, I w
  5. Hi all I'm not to sure this is the correct section. I have a pair of New Balance running shoes, 10 weeks old and falling apart. Clearly not fit for purpose as the materials used in flexing areas is cracking. Having returned these to New Balance I've been told the wear is due to them being in a washing machine which they never have! I feel incredibly insulted by this response and now have a point to prove by getting them independently lab tested and a report. New Balance wanted to charge me £50 for the pleasure. Following the horrendous lack of any customer support I have z
  6. Evening all, I hope this is the right forum.. A few weeks ago I bought a new set of motorsport wheels & tyres for my track day car from Demon Tweeks (DT). I fitted them about 2 weeks after they arrived on 4th June for a track day at Oulton Park near Manchester, and had problems all day with the wheels (all four!) vibrating loose which basically ruined my whole day and wasted track day fee plus the fuel from Essex and a hotel for the night. I'm a chassis & suspension systems engineer for a major OEM and advanced DIY mechanic, so I was able to diagnose the problem as a failure
  7. A debt charity has warned that under-25s are struggling to pay priority debts such as council tax and water bills. StepChange Debt Charity has revealed that 22,626 adults under the age of 25 sought help from it last year and that a larger share of that age group were in council tax, electricity, gas and water arrears than any other age group. Some 28% of those under-25s who went to the charity for advice last year had council tax arrears, the average of which was £534, compared to 19% among those aged 25 to 39. Of those in the under 25 age group who went to StepChange, 25% are in arrears with
  8. Hi Everyone I bought a Sofa and chair from Littlewoods last November, it was delivered a few days before Xmas so is less than a year old. The cushions have all frayed, and one ofthe covers has come apart where the thread has just disintegrated. The foam ont he arm of the chair has sunk so much it has a huge dent in it. The furniture has had normal wear, no kids/pets jumping on it, but it really is very poorly made. I expect it to last a few more years! I have paid off my account in full so I dont owe any money on it at all, and I wrote to Littlewoods enclosing photos on the 31st Octobe
