  1. I bought a Nissan Qashqui from a local independent dealer in June this year for just over £5k. The turbo went faulty within 30 days, after an initial appearance of indifference from the dealer they did indeed repair it and all was good. However, we now have an issue with the windscreen washers (both front and back) in that they just don't work. I can hear no noise when trying to use them which leads me to think this it is the washer motor (i have checked the fuse and it is not that). The washers did work upon when we first got it, but over the past few weeks they have stopped working. I contacted the dealer via email yesterday confirming that the car is under 6 months since purchase and this fault has occurred for which i would like them to repair. Their reply has been: "Sorry to hear you are having a minor problem with your Nissan Qashqai unfortunately due to you only having a 3 months major mechanical warranty which would of expired on the 11/09/18 this wouldn’t be something we could cover the cost of. Even if this issue occurred during the first three months of you owning the vehicle the washer jets wouldn’t be covered due to the warranty only being a major mechanical warranty." I have just replied to them that my request for them to repair this free of charge is under the Consumer Rights Act 2015, section 9 "Goods to be of satisfactory quality". I have reiterated that i expect them to repair this free of charge or state their final position on the matter so i can then decide on my next course of action. Can anyone give me their thoughts on whether i am completely in the right to demand repair for this issue on a car bought privately from a dealership just under 5 month ago? If they refuse to play ball, what should my next steps be? I have kept all communication with them via email so i have a clear trail, but if we do have any chat via phone then it will be recorded (i have installed a call recording app - thanks to all the advice on here!).
  2. Hello Everyone I bought a secondhand ride on lawn mower on 24th March this year, it was from a dealer and was advertised online, but I can't remember which site. It cost £3200 I paid by bacs, because of the drought I have only used it for 5 hours (by the mower hour clock) so far, last night it dumped the transmission oil out and lost all drive, it looks like it has been repaired and bodged up as I can see instant gasket sealant hanging out. Without getting a mechanics opinion I would think that it needs a new hydrostatic transmission. Do I have any rights under the sale of goods etc etc. It is a domestic machine and I bought it to cut my own lawns not as a business. I have contacted the seller, his reply was more or less "tough luck, not my problem" . I did quote this: Under the Consumer Rights Act 2015, goods should be of a satisfactory quality, fit for purpose and as described. My rights have been breached because the item you sold me is faulty. I would like a refund/repair/replacement." He replied that as it was a secondhand vehicle I only had 30 days to complain. Do I have any right to a refund? I have looked at the Consumer Rights Act 2015 but it's in legalese, I think I might have grounds to send it back as it's within 6 months but I can't find a specific reference so that I can metaphorically use it to beat the seller over the head with.
  3. Hi all, I had a CCJ issued against me on 26th April, I contacted Shoosmiths LLP who were acting on behalf of client and agreed repayment terms over five months. I am now in position to repay the debt before the 26th May, i checked with the court this morning and they agreed that if that happened then i can ask the court to cancel the entry on the register (they stated that normally the claimant will notify them). Tonight i phoned the automated payment line where a message says that they cannot accept payment to clear outstanding balance unless agreed in writing, this now worries me that i will not be able to get this done before the 26th May. I will contact Shoosmiths in the morning but does anyone have any thoughts??
  4. Hello all Wondering what advice you would give for this particular scenario Have received a letter in the post this morning from a company by the name of Marston, It says I have not paid a fine of £660 It says a court order has been made that gives enforcement agents the power to visit me, my address has been identified and traced, as I have not responded to letters delivered to this or a previous address an enforcement officer will be asked to visit within 14 days unless you make payment or discuss your specific circumstances.. I know nothing of this fine or what its for, How do I proceed? Any help appreciated folks
  5. Evening all, hate to say it but I need some help and advice again. I bought my wife a 62 plate Jaguar XF from Trade Centre Wales on the 6th November. It's done 90k and HPI shows 2 previous keepers. 10k trade in, £10 on credit card, balance by debit card. On the 7th, had trouble starting it. Press the button and the gear selector knob comes up and the dash lights up. After less than a minute, lights go out and knob retracts. Several attempts to start it and same thing. Gave up. Came out half an hour later, tried again and it works ok. Had the same problem on the 8th and 9th, intermittently, it simply won't start. It doesn't try to turn the engine, just shuts itself down. It's an intermittent fault and there's no rhyme nor reason to it. Sometimes it's ok, sometimes it's not. Over the course of the 3 days, it was also noted that the ECO stop/start system isn't working at all. On the 10th, the new V5 arrives and shows 3 previous keepers, not the 2 that they advised. I immediately sent them a rejection letter giving them 14 days to refund in full citing the V5 discrepancy and the 2 faults discovered to date. They have emailed 3 times now, refusing the rejection and stating they want the vehicle in to check it and rectify any concerns I have. They have also told me in their last email that I can't reject as the faults are minor. I've spoken to the bank re section 75 claim but they haven't got back to me yet. Any advice on my next move? Should I get a local garage to do an independent inspection? The owner has already seen the starting problem. I'd appreciate any help or advice you can give.
  6. Purchased a new phone (online) on an O2 pay monthly contract via mobiles.co.uk. My current provider beat this deal at last minute hence me wanting to cancel the O2 contract and return the handset. I am within 14-days of receipt of handset but have used the SIM/handset (no calls - just testing coverage). mobiles.co.uk's return/cancellation policy (here) states use of SIM/handset signifies acceptance of contract. It also mentions that coverage issues should be discussed with them/the provider before a cancellation can be approved. Either way, the handset will be returned and I will not be honouring the contract - however, just interested if anyone has had experience with similar and best way to approach them - purely because I want the upfront cost of the handset refunded without any problems or protracted battles. Thanks.
  7. Good afternoon all. New member here seeking some clarification on a couple of things. Story so far. Collected a brand new vehicle from Land Rover dealership on 30th September 2017. Car developed faults and went to same garage for repair on 19th October 2017. It is still there 3 days later and I will get an update on Monday and maybe the car back then. I have lost confidence in the car and looking at the Landrover forum, this fault and others appear common and are likely to repeat at some time in the future. I am concerned that if I do not reject the car within 30 days then I am potentially left with a lemon. Questions: 1. Can I still reject the car even if faults are fixed (albeit they may only be temporary)? 2. Does the 30 days expand to include time in the garage (four days so far) i.e. do my rights hold for 34 days? 3. I purchased the car on a PCP, who do I reject the car with (dealer or LR finance co - or both)? I see there are a number of letter templates for this but please forward any proven ones pls. 4. My old car was traded in and now gone from the dealer I assume. It was on PCP and was in negative equity. The new PCP rolled up the neg equity and financed the new car. What is likely to happen to the repayment of the PCP. Is it a new contract and relates directly to the new car only or am I likely to have to cover the old neg equity to exit? Not sure how I stand legally here. Shame because I do like the car but I do not want to have a problematic car. I would consider exchange but I have lost confidence with the brand and these problems appear to be widespread to the vehicle. Any guidance/help would be appreciated
  8. For the full story : - https://www.standard.co.uk/news/transport/learner-drivers-to-be-allowed-on-britain-s-motorways-within-months-a3610466.html Interesting, are they being taught to drive on a motorway.. or Park !!
  9. As the title says. This is not a final notice, but the very first. I'm not even sure what the debt's for, but I've looked at the template letter on here and I am going to send that. Just wondering if there's anything in the CCA that stipulates a minimum amount of time to pay back the debt. Cheers!
  10. Hi, I currently am in breach of a suspended possession order dating back to the 4th of september 2015. An order was made that i had to pay an extra £1000 on top of my normal payment of £650 per month in order to pay off the arrears of £6000... at the time i was lead to believe that i had to accept this or the judge would def evict us in desperation agreed...i know now that was a mistake. I actually did manage to just about get the arrears under control by selling most of the contents of my house and stopped all building works. ..which was what put me in arrears in the first place (old house with loads more problems than originally quoted for). I have approx £175,000 equity in the property and the mortgage was for 50% of the purchase price. I currently have arrears of £5208 and my monthly payment is £670... i have offered to pay £250 a month which they have refused to accept though i have been doing this each week. I have 254 months left to pay on the mortgage which if im right would equate on the norgan rule? to be £20 extra per month? Today i have received a letter stating if i dont pay the arrears in full within 7 days they will be applying for a warrant of possession. ..please someone give me some advice.. , would the judge take into account the 1000's and 1000's i have spent renovating this house and give me abit of slack. ..feel desperate and like ive let my family down just as things should be getting better!
  11. My partner bought a vehicle for £2650 from car dealer with no warranty on 7th March 2017. On 25th March 2017 the bottom end crank shaft went and we had to be towed. The garage said the work is minimum £1500 and we've shopped around and nowhere can do it cheaper. The car dealer said that is an extortionate amount for what needs to be done and has agreed to pay half. Leaving us to find £750 to pay for the rest. My partner is about to agree to it as he feels he's had enough stress with it but we're having our first baby this year and really can't afford it. Is there anything we can do? Do we have the right to fight?
  12. Hi, I'm 4 months into a 12-month contract with X4L and have requested cancellation on the grounds that I'm frequently unable to park at, and therefore access, the gym (which is too far/long to travel to on public transport) – and this is on the higher £14.99 contract with the massive admin fee. I'm a new parent and work part-time, therefore can only go at certain days/times that fit around childcare and work. After several emails to the manager/front desk of my local gym, I eventually wrangled their head office email off them, who have responded that my reasons aren't covered by the contract cancellation policy and so they won't honour my request (also that their replies are automated and the inbox isn't monitored, which is obviously a lie, based on correspondence on this forum). Any help would be great (I hear Slick is legendary on this!) - Financial Ombudsman can't help because X4L are apparently not regulated by the FCA and although I've contacted Citizen's Advice, I've had no response as yet. TIA
  13. 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 development with entryphone to street gates are 2 meters high and electrically operated by keypad and phone to residence Presumably unless they get in when someone lets them in or they ring flats at random hoping someone will let them in they cannot force entry to the external main door.

  15. Bought a 56 plate fiesta diesel 14th July. 2016 First problem we had was the alternator failed. The dealer replaced it within a couple of days. Now we have a more serious problem where it appears that the ECU has failed. This was reported to them on the 18th November and they collected it on the 21st November. The car is still with them and were being fobbed off with excuses. I remember seeing something on CAG saying that any fault found within 6 months of purhcase is deemed to be there at the point of purchase and the dealer is responsible for the repairs. Is this still the case? When they come back with it finally repaired and they want to charge me, I will pay it to get the car back, but can I then start a small claims to reclaim the cost. We're also having to hire a car for the weekend. Boris
  16. I qualified to become a driving intructor in 2012 and in Oct 2015 I gave my ADI badge back to the Driving Standards Agency (DSA) as I was no longer teaching due to being in a full time job. The DSA sent me a letter to confirm they received my ADI badge in Oct 2015 also confirmed they removed my name off the Driving Instructors Register. The DSA said in a letter I had ..."12 months from the date your name was removed from the ADI register on 30th Oct2015 to re-register without taking the driving instructor qualifying exams..." So in late Oct 2016 a few days before the 12 months was coming up, I sent in my application to the DSA to re-register, along with my card details for payment of £300. I also did a CRB check a few months before, which was required. The DSA received my application on the 27th Oct (The 12 months deadline was on the 30th, so they received it with 3 days left) I heard nothing for 2 weeks, then I received my application form back (stamped received 27th Oct 2016) and a letter saying my application was unfortunately being rejected because I had not made payment in the last 12 months (I was not teaching in the last 12 months - I had given my badge back and was off the register) as mentioned above. I called the DSA and was told I did not make payment within the 12 months deadline of wanting to re-register with my application form - I explained I sent my application within the 12 months deadline and my card details were on the form. I also explained I had a letter from the DSA from Oct 2015 telling me I had 12 months to re-apply from the date my name was removed off the register. I was told the ADI department was looking for my letter from Oct 2015 and would email me (which they did not) The next day I rang again and this time I again explained - I sent my application within the 12 months time period and wrote my card details on the application form. That my application was returned back to me stamped 'received 27th Oct 2106' - within the 12 month deadline. I was bluntly told my application was being rejected (even though I applied within the 12month period to re-register) because according to the the DSA 1. The DSA needed the 3 digit security number on the back of my card to take payment and they supposedly tried to ring me several times and my number was not working (I explained my number was working all the time and to ring me back to confirm it was working, but the person on the line said no). I explained I received no missed calls. 2. They said they sent me emails as well which I did not have in my inbox I was told bluntly I had to re-apply from scratch and do all the 3 driving instructor tests again and to re-qualify!! - I was feeling very angry because I did nothing wrong in my application and sent it in within 12 months. The DSA received my application on the 23rd Oct and the letter they sent me to say it was being rejected, was dated the 24th Oct, but it was sent out to me a via recorded delivery a whole 12 days later on the 4th Dec 2016 (why was my letter dated 24th Oct 2016 and then sent out to me on the 4th Dec 2016??) they wasted 12 days on purpose to send me the letter. The DSA received my application on 23rd Oct 2016, why did they not send me a letter telling me they needed the 3 digit security number from my card or why did they not send me a text message. The DSA received my application within 12 months and they should have sent me a letter to request my card details, if according to them my phone number was not working (which is a lie) I want to appeal the DSA decision on the basis of 1. I sent my application within 12 months of the deadline to re-register. 2. I need dates/times of the when the DSA called me and according to them my phone was not working (a down right lie) so I can get confirmation from my phone network provider to confirm my phone was working and they was no problem with the phone network - which would break the DSA false argument. 3. Why did not the DSA send me a letter to request the security number or try sending me a text message. 4. The DSA received my letter on the 27th Oct, (application form shows "received 27th Oct) - 3 days before the 12 month deadline. 5. Why did the DSA produce the rejection letter on the 24th Oct and take a whole 12 days to send it out to me on the 4th Dec via recorded delivery - they on purpose took 12 days to delay it being sent to me, so they could say I did not appeal within 14 days!! - thats how sneaky they are!! Please can you help me draft up a letter I need to send the DSA tommorow please
  17. Hi, Please can anyone help me with this: I have just had the 3rd (yes third) gearbox installed in my car, this gearbox has now failed after less than 24 hours and 50 miles! The story: Purchased from main dealer an 18 month old car in September 2014 with 7500 miles on the clock and balance of 3 year manufacturers warranty Car: Make MG, Model MG6 (petrol) Gearbox number 1: This is the original gearbox: noticed by end of 2015 (approx 28000 mile total) that gearbox 'crunches' when changed from 3rd to 4th gear quickly (yes this is a standard manual gearbox). Went to dealer in March 2016 to complain about gearbox (and other warranty faults), they drove car and agreed with me about gearbox. Manufacturer agreed to replace gearbox and new gearbox arrived at end of April. I couldn't leave car with the dealer at this time as I was on standby to work abroad for a number of weeks. Gearbox number 2: Finally got gearbox replaced at beginning of June. New gearbox was worse! Not only does it crunch in 4th but it also whines (like an old mini) in 2nd. Car returned at beginning of July to look at again, dealer agrees it is not correct but "doesn't know what manufacturer will say as it's out of warranty". Told them "don't care fault occurred in warranty period an has not been resolved - actually made worse". Manufacturer eventually agrees to send an engineer from the factory to look at my car who came last week. Manufacturer has agreed that the new gearbox is faulty but they will only supply a replacement 'box if I don't complain about it crunching in 4th as this is a "characteristic of the car". This is not entirely true as I have driven one of the loan cars with same gearbox and it does not crunch however the other loan car did, however there is a lot on the internet about failing gearboxes, crunching, stiff changes etc etc. The gearbox obviously has an inherent design flaw. Gearbox number 3: The third gearbox was installed 15/16th of this month (i.e. picked up yesterday), this has failed within 24 hours and 50 miles, jammed in second - so car now unusable. This happened first thing this morning This morning: Called finance company: told them I wish to reject car for refund under sale of good act and consumer credit act, they said they will talk to the dealer and 'get back to me' and that their procedures can take 8 weeks). I have told them I'm not interested in their time scale, I now do not have a drivable car, asked them for an address where I can serve notice of intended court action. Told me that I need to provide burden of proof, I told them this has been fixed under warranty so I have no paper work (dealer has never given me paper work for warranty repairs) - the car is sitting immobile on my drive if they want to inspect. Called dealer: spoke to the MD, he says it's not acceptable, can they collect car and give me a loan car. I can't arrange collection today or tomorrow as am too busy at work. Thing is I don't want this fixed now, too many attempts at a fundamental fault, I have no confidence whatsoever now. What I would like help with: I would like to claim from the dealer and finance company as they are jointly and severable liable - under sale of good act and consumer credit act - refund and cancel loan agreement. The fault apparently can not be fixed, actually each gearbox is worse. This is a major fault. Could someone point me in the direction of a letter template, and how to handle the court claim - I need to move urgently with this, I am currently having to borrow my wife's car - I can not get to work otherwise. Thanks in advance.
  18. Hi could someone help please? OH has had one of his accounts changed to delinquent on his credit file which will effect him for 6 years. The account is for an overdraft on an account he switched. Has been in contact with them the whole time as he has started a new business and been waiting for invoices to be paid. He tried to pay in full over the phone this month but was refused due to the account being closed/frozen. He had to go in branch and pay by cash but could only draw out half from the ATM so this caused more delays to payment. The payment status on his credit file look like this: April: £617 24th May: £521 OK 26th June: £521 (2 months late payment) 29th July: £521 (3 months late payment) August: £521 (5 months late payments - account status: delinquent) The last update happened in the past week or so (between trying to pay by phone and going in branch to pay by cash) but it is dated for: 04/09/2016. This is a date in the future and also a date we have made payment before. So how can they assume we will be 2 months late on payments by then and skip to 5 months late payments and a delinquency status? And how can they go from OK to 2 months late payments within a month? Is this allowed? OH called to complain yesterday and was basically told the delinquency is accurate so tough but not to worry because we're way off a default...But this is effecting his credit score just the same as :-/ Thanks

  20. A week ago I ordered a new Bosh washer from AO with next day delivery. From the first use it was obvious that something was wrong with it , it was making a very loud and not normal sound every time the drum was turning. I contacted them and they said I had to contact Bosh and use the guarantee to get an engineer to visit . At no point accepted themselves any responsibility as a retailer. The engineer confirmed straight away that there was a fault so I got a replacement. AGAIN from the first use there is the same and even louder noise. AO refuses to refund /replace without an engineer to visit again. They say that they have to make sure there is a fault and they treat me like an idiot as I wouldn't understand the noise or as I did something wrong with the installation. I said this is the SECOND time the same thing is happening and you confirmed the first time with an engineer that is a fault why do I have to go through this again? Citizens advice advised me that they are obliged to refund /replace as the washer arrived with a fault but AO replies that *citizens advice would advice me to my benefit but this is not how things work*. So TWO washers WITHIN A WEEK WITH SAME FAULT and AO still insist on engineer visiting first. All this is very annoying and inconvenient for me as I had to stay in waiting deliveries/ engineer , I still have to wait another engineer , spend hours on the phone with AO and Bosh and i still do not have a proper working washer.
  21. Could someone help me understand what "Moved within area" means. I recently applied for housing benefit and got a letter from them saying that claim has been cancelled and "Moved within area - Please reply."? Any help please?
  22. 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 this Act, and another part of it within a different category of agreement so mentioned, or within a category of agreement not so mentioned, or (b)To place it, or a part of it, within two or more categories of agreement so mentioned. (2) Where a part of an agreement falls within subsection (1), that part shall be treated for the purposes of this Act as a separate agreement. Ok so what does this mean, well, lets say you borrow £6000 from Nasty Banking Corp, the loan is for you to use as you like and therefore you would have fixed sum credit See s10 (1)(B) CCA, unrestricted use credit See s11 (2) CCA and finally it would be a debtor-creditor agreement as defined within s13 CCA Now if you add PPI to the loan, this changes things slightly, why? If you borrow £6000 from Nasty Banking Corp and then you add a PPI policy for example adding another £1500 of credit you are turning it into a multiple agreement The PPI is fixed sum credit as set out in section 10 CCA but it is not unrestricted use, instead its restricted use credit ( See s11 CCA) as you do not have any say over its use, it is in effect only credit for the purchase of the PPI policy and additionally it is a debtor-creditor-supplier agreement as it would be undoubtedly underwritten by another specialist insurer and not the creditor and therefore it falls within the definition given in section 12 CCA So in effect what we have with the £6000 loan and the £1500 PPI is a multiple agreement with “part of it within one category of agreement mentioned in this Act, and another part of it within a different category of agreement so mentioned, or within a category of agreement not so mentioned” This is because the £6000 is fixed sum, unrestricted use debtor creditor and the £1500 is fixed sum, restricted use Debtor-creditor-supplier Therefore since this type of agreement falls within s18, it means that as defined in s18 (2) CCA that the document is to be treated as 2 separate agreements and each agreement must have its own prescribed terms for each part Therefore each piece of credit must have its own term stating the amount of credit, repayments and all other statutory info, in addition the PPI policy would need to have a term stating the Cash Price of the policy, due to it being a restricted use debtor creditor supplier agreement. In essence there should be the following Loan Amount of Credit £6000 Repayments 60 payments of £XXXXXX Total amount payable £XXXXXXXX APR 16.9% PPI Amount of credit £1500 Repayments 60 payments of £XXXXXXX Total amount payable £ XXXXXXXXX Apr 16.9% Cash price of policy £1500 the agreement may not be set out exactly as above but that is to give you an idea of what it must contain If the agreement fails to correctly set matters out in accordance with s18 then the lender risks falling foul of the form and content requirements of section 60 CCA and could be improperly executed as set out within section 61(1) (a) CCA 1974 thus becoming unenforceable the main thing to remember is that you have two agreement within one document, so there must be a set of prescribed terms for each piece of credit, it is permissible to add the prescribed terms together and then state them as total amounts BUT they must be also stated in their separate parts.

  24. Hello, A friend of mine has approached with their PCN they have received from NCP for not correctly parking within the lines of the space. This is new to me. In my mind how can they make any claim for this, espcially having suffered no loss. Also the car park is poorly maintained and the white lines are in fact just very small T bar at the start of the bay. Can they claim for not parking correctly in a bay? surely this is something to be appealed like all other pcn I cant upload a copy of the PCN at moment, but it is a standard one stating £50 or £100. The car park is the NCP at Haywards Heath Harlands Road. The ticket has a code F2 written on it for the contravention with date and time. The PCN number is REDACTED and the vehicle reg is REDACTED you can log onto their website to see the photos www.ncp.co.uk/pcn
  25. My wife has received a PCN from a Harrow Council civil enforcement officer, saying she was parked outside the parking bay markings where she parked. This was because a van had been parked similarly before the other drivers arrived and parked. The other drivers arriving to park were also having to park ouside their bay markings. None were grossly over their bay markings to take out a parking bay or to cause a danger to other drivers. Only my wife's car received a PCN. No video or photographic evidence is included with the Council's PCN record so there is no visual evidence from the Council to back up their officer's claim. My wife has a photo of another car similarly parked that did not have a PCN fixed to the windscreen and a witness statement confirming the details of the whole situation. What are the reasonable grounds for an appeal and is it likely that the PCN will be cancelled?
