  1. Since our recent upgrade last month we are still having lots of problems with our mobile view. It will be very helpful if people could keep us updated here as to the problems that they are having. Thanks
  2. A letting agency has been demanding hundreds of pounds in payment before prospective tenants are allowed to view properties for rent, the BBC's Victoria Derbyshire programme has found. The practice, by Flintons, breaches guidelines and could be unlawful..Shadow housing minister Melanie Onn said renters needed more rights and the case was the "tip of the iceberg". Flintons, in London, denied any wrongdoing and said it did not charge any fees for viewings. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-46111015
  3. What with advice changing from that given a year or so ago, I thought I would just ask a couple of questions regarding a recent private parking charge. a charge was sent to the registered keeper of a car parked on council owned land that had a private parking firm (Premier Park Ltd) enforcing access to a site by way of APNR system. The driver has to access said site to gain entry to the work place, and had been using the site for several months whilst the ANPR was active, without any charges at all. Driver was led to believe the car was registered on the system by his employ
  4. Hi All, Please bear with me. I was made redundant over a year ago, and as a single Mum, I've just started my own business, but am still relying heavily on benefits while I find my feet - financially. Our landlady's told us she's selling the house in June and as we've been here for 5 years and are so happy and settled, I'd love to somehow be able to buy it. The house is expected to go on the market for 220K. My mum recently sold her house and has a 30K deposit she can give us and I'm now considering the following options: 1. My ex, who earns a good wage (100K) can 'Buy to

  6. Hey, I have two defaults that are registered under lowell however they are originally from Orange on my credit file and I am really not sure what they are about or any dates etc. Whats the best way of finding out what they are for, the date of the original default and any other information which might prove useful in my search to try and clean up the horror show that is my credit report ?

  7. Hi there, A year ago I took out a product with Buy as you view. I have had no problems and have paid religiously by DD every week. This week I returned from holiday to a letter saying the DD had been cancelled (my fault I was cancelling several DDs at once online before i went away). this means that the payments have mounted up to £89 owed. Due to the holiday and not realising they hadn't gone out I rang Buy as you view to advise them I could meet the back log in payments on my next payday but would continue to pay the weekly amount every Friday until then so
  8. Compensation is to be paid to 59,000 customers of Buy as You View, which rents out furniture, TVs and other electronic goods on hire purchase. The City watchdog, the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), raised concerns about the clarity of fees and the treatment of customers in arrears. It also questioned the way customers were given payment meters to restrict access to TVs. Dunraven Finance will pay £939,000 in compensation. The company, which uses the trading name Buy as You View, will pay an average of nearly £16 per customer, by adjusting bills or in cash payments. It
  9. Hello, when I log in the forum on my tablet I'm prompted to install Tapatalk, which I don't really want. It would be helpful to have a mobile view instead, as it's difficult to browse under the full view. Thanks.
  10. I was looking for a place to park near a local station. There is an NPC park and ride there, with a few bays, but I've noticed there is a road that goes around the bays with no yellow lines, and it's not clear whether or not it is a part of the car park or not, as there is only 1 sign at the back. There is plenty of room to park here, and others do, but just wanted to know if it is a part of it or not. Here is a google street view link which is pointing at the place I want to park, spin around and you will see the entrance road and the car park. https://goo.gl/maps/oJRb

  13. Hey I've had these BV turn up at my door 6 times in 3 days. Missed three weeks payments as I didn't know the bank had cancelled the direct debit and I had no letters from them. Told them countless amount of times I don't answer the door unless I know who it is. I'm a single mum 2 kids under 5 so it's just something I've always done and especially like tonight when they turn up at 6pm I text one of them and said I wouldn't be available until Tuesday as the kids are off school/nursery and I'm not having strangers in the house when they are here and all he said was it
  14. just wondering if bayv stating that you have to take their insurance or be covered by your own home contents insurance is the same codswollop as bright house? they do acknowledge that the extra warranty is optional just not this insurance.
  15. hi. looking for some help. just had a bit of a harrowing experience. came home to find a person knocking my next dooe neighbours door. i said hello and went into my house. 2 minutes later this chap knocked the door and introduced himself as a baliff from Swift Credit Services working on behalf of The Vale of Glamorgan County Council. He handed my a piece of paper saying that he has secured the debt againt my car outside. And i didnt pay up in full within 5 days they would be taking the car. My car was secured against a previous debt I had with the Vale of Glamorga

  17. Hi All, I need some advice if i can. Around two years ago, i had an account with Buy as you view. I later purchased a corner sofa from them, and had numerous problems (i will explain in more detail below) Due to problems, they finally decided to replace the sofa, but as the original sofa was no longer available, we purchased a new reclining sofa from them, This brought its own problems (again i will detail in bullet points below) And we ended up mutually agreeing not to continue payment for the items, and the matter was closed. My issue is that the manufacturer had recalled t
  18. first of all - this is my mates case at the moment, after couple of years here I'm not that stupid to do the following... he was going through some financial issues and started looking around for some sort of a consolidation debt loan thingy. without any knowledge, he most likely google this company: http://www.clearviewfinanceltd.co.uk he called them and discussed debt management, fees, percents and all that. the stupid thing he did - he gave them card details on basis that they need to do checks and what card would be used for payments. they told him they will send him the agr

  20. In May 2012 I purchased a TV off buy as you view. I was paying £13.00 a week every week and I have never missed a payment a nd have always been in so they can collect the money from those black boxes. To cut a long story short our black box broke that we put the money in 3 weeks ago so i have been unable to use the TV.

I knew buy as you view were meant to be coming round yesterday but unfortunately I miscarried yesterday morning so I had a friend sit

  22. G00gle are using surplus surveillance drones from the US military to develop a 3D StreetView. The idea is to have a drone follow each StreetView CCTV camera car at a height of 50 metres. Instead of the existing 2D images, the new service will capture 3D images using software developed jointly by G00gle and Caltech. This software is being installed in G00gle Glass, so that users can explore a 3D representation of any street they choose to download. It will appear to users that they are standing in the actual street. The 3D StreetView Privacy Impact Assessment appended to G00gle’s Priv
