  1. Prices of some snacks almost triple if you buy them at the station rather than on the high street a Sunday Mirror investigation can reveal. https://www-mirror-co-uk.cdn.ampproject.org/v/s/www.mirror.co.uk/money/huge-markups-price-snacks-station-14004342.amp?usqp=mq331AQCCAE%3D&amp_js_v=0.1#referrer=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.google.com&amp_tf=From%20%251%24s&ampshare=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.mirror.co.uk%2Fmoney%2Fhuge-markups-price-snacks-station-14004342

  3. Hello all Just looking for a bit of advice please. I own and live in a house which I bought in 2003 on a 25 year mortgage. Since that time I have been paying a tiny ground rent (it’s about £4 semi-annually) to a property management company. I have received an inheritance recently and decided I would try to find out how much it would cost to obtain the freehold on the land my house is built on and how long is left on the lease. This weekend I sent two separate enquiry emails to the property management firm. The first reply I received contained a letter saying they want £90 t
  4. ASG installed a boiler in 2014. Had a few problems and ASG staff 'talked us through' on the phone fixing them ourselves while we pay for 'unlimited call outs, repair etc... The boiler stopped working all together a year ago. An engineer came and replaced a part. ASG demanded that we have a power flush carried out (at our expense) as apparently the fault was because of debris...We had to do this or ASG said the warranty would be void. A power flush does not need to be done more than, at most, every 5 years. This year, the boiler stopped again just after the yearly service (!?). A Vies
  5. Aretha died earlier today, age 76. For those who are old enough to remember, one of my favourite Aretha moments was when she sang 'Think' in The Blues Brothers film. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-11950661
  6. hi.. bought a audi 2014 q3 for £17.300 off Arnold clack on the 18th dec.2017 ..took out one year extended warranty plus service and mot plan ...last week I put petrol in the car instead of diesel. arnold clark recovery came and took car away... phoned me and told me it was going to cost £2.200 to fix ...I got a friend who owns a garage to pick my car up he drained the tank and bleed the pipes ..put £15 of diesel in and the car is working perfect. ..now I have lost total trust in Arnold clark. ..and have asked them to give me my money back for the service and mot pla

  8. My son went to inspect a car in a local used dealership on my behalf as I am overseas at present. I saw the car ( VW Golf estate auto diesel 2009) advertised in Autotrader, looked clean and well looked after by pics, only 2 owners and less than 100k miles , my son went to see the car , had a good look around and went for a road test after which I spoke on the phone to him. He told me of a rattle on idle which he thought was down to exhaust issue, but the car drove perfectly other than that, under bonnet looked good and no signs of leaks or coolant problems etc. Car had been cleaned obviously a

He was the one that introduced me to this fantastic site, and I know in the past he helped many people on here. Only the longer term members will remember him. Another goodun gone too soon. RIP Tide.

  14. Hello - 5 months ago I had a new composite door / frame set fitted by a supposedly reputable company . Long story short they made a terrible mess and the door was faulty , damaged and the fitters damaged the door and my property whilst fitting .They also took my old door and frame away as they had to smash it out trying to get it out . I never signed the job off and complained straight away . The company sent the 'fitting company' manager to assess the door and he agreed it was terrible and verbally said that we would get a new door and fittings ( that were also damaged ) but not a frame . I
  15. Newbie here, hope I am in the right place..... purchased a second hand vehicle today. It is a band C vehicle and as such I should pay £30 a year tax. Went online to purchase to be given a price of £230 , I emailed DVLA to question this and the response I received back was This vehicles CO2 emissions count was not provided when the vehicle was first registered and we are unable to ammend our records, therefore the amount payable is £230. I have responded asking why they are unable to ammend their records, they do if a vehicle changes colour, is modified or has

  17. My father who is in his 70's has always been with British Gas and a few years back took out a boiler policy with them. I have just noticed they have billed him £275 for a years basic boiler policy with a service yet a lot of other company's charge less than £200 for the exact same policy. They have insisted he needs a new boiler on his last service which he's now worried about and they have applied their high pressure sales tactics and bamboozled him with all sorts of jargon and guarantees which quite frankly he doesn't understand but is too embarrassed to say no. Anyone else come across these
  18. There is a huge amount of misinformation regarding the forcing of entry for court fines. In the first instance, a separate warrant is not necessary and is not a requirement. For the avoidance of doubt, forced entry is permitted by the warrant itself. It is not used that often and in most cases, is used where a debtor refuses to engage with the enforcement agent. It is sadly the case that forced entry has also taken place because the debtor himself has been wrongly advised of the legal position. As an example, on Saturday, I received an enquiry where a locksmith was present.
  19. back in march some 1 clipped the wing mirror on my van on a country road, they barely touched, there was no marks or anything, the woman tried to blame me (even though i was stationary) i rang my insurance company, told them what happened just in case the woman rang trying to pass the blame, nothing ever came from it and no claims were ever made. renewed my insurance last month, had a call at the weekend from my insurance company saying there is going to be an increase of £900 because i havent declared a claim, i said i havent ever claimed, they said theres a claim on the motor insurance datab
  20. Major high street stores have been accused of ripping off shoppers by charging up to 10p for paper carrier bags – despite them being exempt from the new laws brought in last month. Outraged shoppers have hit out at Debenhams and House of Fraser claiming they are 'cashing in' by charging for paper bags when other high street shops offer them for free. House of Fraser has said the charge for paper bags had been introduced for 'ethical and moral' reasons, and that all proceeds would be donated to charity. However, shoppers have taken to Twitter to express their anger at th
  21. Hi, I've been looking at reclaiming PPI from a 2002 loan I got to buy musical equiptment. After being messed around claiming they couldn't find my account details I SAR'd my bank at the time and sifted through 1000+ pages of documentation in order to find my agreement number, 160 days after the initial SAR request I was eventually supplied my account detals. Long story short it was single payment / front loaded PPI payment. I did however run into difficulties paying the account and it was "written off (term as per transaction description) / defaulted at £520 in 3
  22. The rail watchdog is launching an investigation into “rip off” rail machines after a Telegraph investigation revealed that passengers are routinely being denied the cheapest fares. Joanna Whittington, chief executive of the Office of Rail and Road, said that research suggests one in 20*passengers were being sold rail tickets by machines that are too expensive. This means the millions of rail passengers could be potentially be paying the wrong*train*fares for journeys. An investigation by the Telegraph in 2014 found that customers were forced to pay double the required fare
  23. Young woman driver's £11,500 car insurance quote almost six times value of her car A young driver was horrified when her car insurance quote was a massive £11,500 a year - nearly six times the value of her car. Naomi Bowler was stunned to be told the premium on her £1,700 Peugeot 206 would be £1107.72 a month - with a deposit of £1,923.66 - but Aviva have defended the quote. The 19-year-old used to be insured at a cost of £96 a month using black box to monitor her driving. However when Naomi, who has no claims and says she parks her car outside her home in a pleasant area, ap
  24. Firstly, EVERY point in this review and statement here is backed up with copies of emails, court filings and recordings. So whatever WMS say in response it is true and court records reflect that. What to say about WMS? Sit back because this is a hell of a story. Well my father in law purchased a 5 star policy from them to cover his Range Rover Sport. He paid extra to have main dealer work undertaken should anything go wrong. 2 years into the agreement the engine was destroyed by an incident where was breached after an internal failure. Pretty much fatal. He tried to make a clai
  25. Hi and thank you for reading my concern with Scottish Power I have recently come to the end of my 12 mth fixed term contract and found a cheaper supplier when i informed scottish power they took an extra £60 from my account for the last months payment and then informed me I was £258 in debt even though over the last 10 months they had reduced my payment by £15 I informed them I was £150 worse off because of them and they have offered me £60 off my debt because `i managed to cancel my DD before they could get their hands on the final amount.. .Good job really as I pointed out
