  1. "A dad who brandished a two-foot hunting knife at bailiffs who were trying to repossess his car has been jailed. Nathan Watson, 27, had already put his children in the back of the Volkswagen Golf in a bit to stop the debt collectors towing the vehicle away."

  2. i am due to be exchanging contracts this friday and moving to ireland. My house in the UK had an agreed sale 6 weeks ago. I have agreed to purchase a house in ireland and had instructed a solicitor in the UK to handle the sale of my house for which the proceeds were being used to purchase the house in Ireland. i have also had to instruct a solicitor in ireland to handle the house purchase in ireland. The estate agent in the UK has received notification this morning that the buyer has pulled out of the agreement to buy my UK property. The estate agent has told me that i am going to be liable as well for my own solicitors fees as well as the ireland solicitors fees for land searches etc as they have carried out the work . On a side note as to my divorce settlement, i am being hit with £400 a month Spousal maintenance until my house is sold I have been left to foot the bill of two lots of £750.00 solicitors costs. total £1500, removers cost as well as they were booked for friday etc Can i claim against the person who puled out of the sale at the last minute to claim these costs. Contracts were being exchanged this friday so has a verbal contract been formed thanks
  3. This one is for a friend who purchased goods from the UK and had them delivered to an EU country. The goods are two safes, purchased over the phone, so description and transaction were carried out by phone. The safes arrived in good looking condition and have dial lock doors. When my friend tried to adjust the dial locks according to the instructions, they couldn't get them to work (on both). Another person in the company tried following the instructions to the letter and again they couldn't adjust the locks. One of the locks was also stuck. They got in touch with the retailer, over the phone at first and then by email. They forwarded me the email communications which are super clear, the retailer tells them that due to dial locks having issues on transport they sometimes need to dispatch an engineer to re-calibrate. This could be done in the UK but since they are outside the UK (within EU), the seller provided the contacts of a representative. My friend tried all contacts to no avail and none of them was reachable. They got in touch with the seller again to ask for a proposed solution and also expressed concerns over the reliability of the dial locks. The seller wrote on email that they "failed to inform them about this potential issue on transport prior to sale and therefore they would bear the costs of the return". Then my friend proposed to swap the dial lock doors with key lock doors which the seller accepted under no other condition. The doors were shipped back to the UK (paid by my friend but invoice was sent to the seller for a refund as agreed). As soon as the seller received the doors they swapped to key locks and shipped the different doors back. BUT they also replied by email supporting that the doors had no problem at all and that according to them it was the buyer's fault, therefore it would be unfair for them to pay for the return costs back to the UK. I am not familiar with distant sales but I understand that my friend can use both SOGA and EU directive for Distance Selling. 1.According to SOGA the description of the goods was not right, because two people could not operate the safe according to the instructions of the seller (intended to the average user), unless that falls under non-fit-for-purpose? (now the seller supports that two people are "stupid" and they couldn't operate perfectly working dial locks). 2. Then according to the distance sales directive from the EU, they failed to provide full information about the goods during/prior sale, which they admitted openly in writing, so they should bear the return costs. But even if the above was hard to justify,my friend followed the instructions agreed with the seller in good faith, in order to resolve the problem, and the seller changed their mind on an agreement they proposed themselves?! My friend put all the above points in a nice letter to the seller and received no response at all. I feel the seller has acted inappropriately. Your advice is most welcome:)
