  1. I'm living on a private street which is a dead end but my landlord isn't the owner of it, it's someone else. From one side we have access to the side road for a cars, and from the other a gate which leads to the main road. Three years ago the owner of the street decided to weld the gate for no reason. He done it in the morning when everyone living on the street were at work/school. I contacted my landlord to see if he has contact details to the person that owns the street, but he doesn't. Few months later someone made a hole in a wooden fence next to the gate and straight away we st
  2. Land rover main dealer had my car to do a service.They were supposed to have it overnight, but heard nothing from them the following day.I tried calling them but couldn't get through to anyone. Now I know why..spoke to them today and they admitted they had an accident in it. They never informed of this, so I don't know what damage was or how it happened.They say they've nearly repaired it. obviously they have waived service fee, but I must be due to compensation as: 1. I didn't have use of my car for a lost a week, and lost work as I coudln't attend my customers. 2.they have been
  3. Hello, I'm looking for some advice. At the end of May this year I purchased a used VW Golf GTD from a main VW dealer in West London. The car was six months old and sold to me as a former demonstrator. I paid £22K for the car. At the point of purchase the dealer informed me that he was waiting on the spare key and I drove away with only one key. Seeing as this was a VW dealership, I felt I could trust that said key would be sent to me. After numerous emails between myself and the representative at the dealership, he finally informed me at the beginning of August
  4. Hi all, My 2016 Ford Edge developed a fault that would take 2 weeks to repair because of this it meant me, my wife, 3 children and 2 dogs could not go on our planned holiday as we were driving to Spain. After much argument the dealer decided to lend us a demonstrator so we could still go on our holiday and the car would be covered under their insurance. Whilst on holiday we had a small accident that meant the car went into limp mode so had no power. it transpired that the car insurance was a motor traders policy and as such their insurance would not get us home or
  5. Hi, I'm a single expat (this is starting like a lonely hearts advert! ) but, I still own a house in the UK which I rent out. Currently it's empty and I've been paying council tax. I applied for the single person discount but it was denied on the basis that I was a landlord. However, I assume this is normally done on the basis that you are getting single person discount on the property you live in elsewhere. In this case that does not apply to me because I live abroad and am not getting single person discount on any other UK property. The property in question will be nominated as my main h
  6. In view of two similar threads regarding right of forced entry for criminal fines, it might be good to clarify the situation where the front door of the debtor's residence is not immediately accessible: Flat block with secure entryphone system no trade button Postie has access code Flat block with secure entryphone system with trade button Secure OAP extra care facility with entryphone, Resident might have a speeding fine for their mobility scooter when plates were cloned or camera garbles the reg no of a speeding car (actually happened to a Flint Pensioner) Gated dev
  7. Hi All I recently purchased a used car from a Main dealer for £14750 (5 year old) under the approved used scheme, after a week i noticed a minor fault with car and booked it in for the work to be carried out (they could not get the car in for 1 month) taking me outside the 30 day return period. When the car was in being fixed, i rang one on the previous service stamps (also from the same main dealer group) to find some information if the gearbox oil had been changed, they had only seen the car for the first 2 services at 4k, and 16k yet the book was stamped wit
  8. Hi, I bought a brand new OEM radiator from a BMW dealership to fit myself (I have a long list of reason why I don't allow dealerships to work on my cars). Upon fitting the radiator and filling it with coolant, it leaked. Now then, the dealership refuse to refund or exchange the item unless I get my car to them at expensive, which will be an expense as it can't be driven. They told me if I hadn't fitted the part already, returning it would be no problem - do they really thing I bought it to sit on shelves? There's no way I could have found out it was faulty unless I fitted
  9. Basically me and my brother have been renting together a few years, made financial sense and we get on well. It is through an agent. He has since had a child(hes not with the mother but they get on) and he has been on the housing association list for a while as he wants to be able to have his son staying over etc. He's over every weekend anyway but stays at my dads. Last week he was accepted for a 2 bedroom flat with the housing association and is going to accept it so will wish to leave shortly. This leaves me in a tricky situation as I would like to stay here, it is his name on the te
  10. Hi All, I am going in for the PPI fight, I will track my progress and hopefully successful outcomes here. I have had loads of loans and Credit Cards over the years, in fact so many that I can't remember them all, I have written a list and will try put them in some order for SARs and then hopefully get some advice from you guys as to which to go after 1st. I am doubtful how many will come up as being mis sold though as I recall saying no to protection insurance on most occasions, but you never know. My List: Mortgages Natwest Norwich & Peterborough UCB Intelli
  11. Hi all, and I thank you in advance of all advice given to me with a problem I have had with a repair I had done at a local Citroen Main Dealer Garage. I owned a Citroen C4 (59 plate), bought in August 2013. 3 month warranty as it was 2nd hand, even thought I thought I had 3 year cover - that's another story. I developed a faul with the car in late April 2014 and on th 7th of May took the Car to my local Citroen garage to sort out. They did a VHC - Vehicle Health Check/Diagnostics, and informed me that I needed a new EGR valve. I asked if it was a straightforward job, and the reply I
  12. Long story cut very short; I have a 2006 Vauxhall Zafira auto. About 12 months ago the auto box was not "kicking" down when required or would just jump around the gears. Light also came up on dash and "rad coolant level low" showed up l Took it to a Vauxhall main dealer who could not find anything wrong with the car and told me to just keep topping up the rad when the light comes on as there "may" be a small leak somewhere, even though they could not find one. Had a full service done, 2 days later coil pack failed and AA fitted new one at cost telling me it was most prob due to o
  13. Purchased a car from a main dealer who in previous experience we had received good service. However, purchased a car almost £7k, low mileage, service history, 12 months warranty and MOT. Payment was part cash and part finance. On the original test drive we heard a noise and was told by the salesman that it was the brakes from being parked for awhile and would soon settle down. To be reassured, we took another test drive in it at different time of day on different roads and the noise was quieter, albeit still there. The dealer agreed to carry out a full service and MOT at no extra charge an
  14. Took a car I recently purchased to Kwik Fit for full service and advised that front discs and pads were worn to the metal and advised they needed replacing. As I do around 100 miles per day and drive my kids around I agreed to get the work done, and I need the car. The cost to replace the discs and pads came to £368.70 on a 998cc Yaris, when I looked at the Toyota fixed repair price for the same job on the same car it is £210 inclusive. I have been a loyal customer of the Consett Kwik Fit for a number of years but this has really upset me. I did say the pri
  15. Hi, We purchased a new car and paid the car via debit card. The total amount was paid from my wifes card. Before we bought the car we asked the salesman if it was paid with my wifes card the car would have to be registered in my name, and he said that would be no problem. If that was an issue we would have paid them cash but saved us carrying cash with us. They taxed the car, we signed the paperwork and he gave us the green section of the v5 but they had put my wifes name on the new keeper section. I told him that it was my name and he apologised telling me that they would
  16. I heard from a guy at where i work today that these rules are being challenged. I work for an agency at a place that i wont yet name, and have been there for a few years. When the rules about paying the same came in, the place took on 'flexible' workers, at a lower rate than main employees. This means the agency people are getting paid less than main workers as well. I wondered if anyone had heard about this, and if anyone knows where i can follow the court actions on it.

  18. Good morning... I took my 1989 Cavalier into a large chain of Vauxhall dealers in Cambridge for a hose pipe. I was only going to buy it and fit it myself but the service chap told me that the rubber combined with the oil could have become corrosive and it'd be better done in the workshop, free of charge seeing as it was such an old car and easy to work on! (Bonus, I thought! The dealership I normally use in Stapleford have been amazing with my old Cavalier and love having it in the workshop, normally giving me healthy discounts!). It came out with a hosepipe fitted but the Vehicle

  20. Bit of a long shot here but does anyone have details of the main man still at Egg Derby. If there is such a person nowdays. Was going to proceed with a claim for unfair charges but suddenly realised who exactly am I after for these charges. Account is an old Credit Card. It was sold pre Barclaycard to a DCA so this would I believe let Barclaycard off the hook. I have never seen anyone trying to claim back charges from a DCA that they have not put on themselves (By that not seen anyone on here trying to get a DCA to cough for OC's unfair charges) The remainder of Egg was sol
  21. G4S or whatever they call themselves now cannot train enough security staff so we are going to use more of the armed forces. With the best will in the world just how long have they known the date of the Olympics? typical leave things till the last minute and get the Army to sort it out.
