    • Hello Friends. I cannot believe it but im being evicted again, i was given a section 48 notice 4 months into my tenancy. I already went through this process last year, i overstayed in my last place by a few months and left on 6th Oct 2023. I knew to check all the documentation that they sent to see if the notice is legal, it looks like it is. I took this place out of desperation as i had to vacate that last place. I hate this place so im not bothered about leaving it.    These cowboys lied to me when i viewed the house. I told the agent that i was evicted from my last house and naturally i dont want this to happen again. She said  the landlord has no plans to sell the house. What she did not tell me was that the landlord had tried to sell the house last year and failed. So it looks like they have used me to fill in the short period of time until its time to sell again. I did see it advertised online.   I told them im not in a strong enough financial position to find another property, cost of a deposit, 1 months rent and moving costs.   They have told me they are starting legal proceedings. They have sent me an invoice for £395 but i have not even received the court paperwork.    I dont like the job im in so i have decided to relocate to a better job and hopefully find cheaper rentals.   I can post a copy of the notice if needed.  
    • yes a judgement sorry I used the wrong word before
    • Hi So on Friday I received a copy on email from the claimants solicitors with an attached relief from sanctions application - on the basis that the solicitor missed the deadline for the additional directions and it was an oversight on their part and that the claimant should therefore not suffer.   They then attached a copy of the deed of assignment and a new witness statement.  They stated that they would be happy to delay the court date by 28 days but that they believed both parties were ready for the court case on 7th June. My first question, is there anything I need to do or do I just sit and wait to see what is decided?  Secondly, is it likely the judge will be aware that the claimants solicitors did exactly the same in the set aside court case (ie they filed their court bundle late and applied for relief from sanctions on the morning of the court date, and my solicitors had no choice but to agree because they threatened to strike my case out because my solicitors had only filed their court bundle by email and not post).  This is a clear pattern of how these solicitors work rather than it being a one off oversight! 
    • I shall find the link later this evening. It was about couples not living together but being liable for council tax. I was never married or in an official civil partnership. We lived together for 18 months, I then left for 6 months for work but continued to pay my half of the bills and rent.   We then split up I gave up my tenancy she took it all in her name. She then decided to move in with me 5 months later. She then banned me from going back to my house eventually let me back in then called the police. Took over my house and is now only paying the rent not the bills so I will be landed with those to. So over the course of our relationship I have ended up paying her debts for 5 different addresses, personal loans and credit cards. If I refuse to pay them she makes more accusations.

    • Hello,

      On 15/1/24 booked appointment with Big Motoring World (BMW) to view a mini on 17/1/24 at 8pm at their Enfield dealership.  

      Car was dirty and test drive was two circuits of roundabout on entry to the showroom.  Was p/x my car and rushed by sales exec and a manager into buying the mini and a 3yr warranty that night, sale all wrapped up by 10pm.  They strongly advised me taking warranty out on car that age (2017) and confirmed it was honoured at over 500 UK registered garages.

      The next day, 18/1/24 noticed amber engine warning light on dashboard , immediately phoned BMW aftercare team to ask for it to be investigated asap at nearest garage to me. After 15 mins on hold was told only their 5 service centres across the UK can deal with car issues with earliest date for inspection in March ! Said I’m not happy with that given what sales team advised or driving car. Told an amber warning light only advisory so to drive with caution and call back when light goes red.

      I’m not happy to do this, drive the car or with the after care experience (a sign of further stresses to come) so want a refund and to return the car asap.

      Please can you advise what I need to do today to get this done. 

      Many thanks

    • We have finally managed to obtain the transcript of this case.

      The judge's reasoning is very useful and will certainly be helpful in any other cases relating to third-party rights where the customer has contracted with the courier company by using a broker.
      This is generally speaking the problem with using PackLink who are domiciled in Spain and very conveniently out of reach of the British justice system.

      Frankly I don't think that is any accident.

      One of the points that the judge made was that the customers contract with the broker specifically refers to the courier – and it is clear that the courier knows that they are acting for a third party. There is no need to name the third party. They just have to be recognisably part of a class of person – such as a sender or a recipient of the parcel.

      Please note that a recent case against UPS failed on exactly the same issue with the judge held that the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 did not apply.

      We will be getting that transcript very soon. We will look at it and we will understand how the judge made such catastrophic mistakes. It was a very poor judgement.
      We will be recommending that people do include this adverse judgement in their bundle so that when they go to county court the judge will see both sides and see the arguments against this adverse judgement.
      Also, we will be to demonstrate to the judge that we are fair-minded and that we don't mind bringing everything to the attention of the judge even if it is against our own interests.
      This is good ethical practice.

      It would be very nice if the parcel delivery companies – including EVRi – practised this kind of thing as well.

Just looking for a bit of advice with regards to Currys customer service. Back in July we had a Currys guy come round to deliver and install a cooker into the house we'd just moved in to. The guy turned up, walked straight through to our kitchen and immediately told me he would not be fitting the electrics to the cooker and will only do the gas. When I asked why, he said there was not an electrical point for the cooker. I showed him the connection in the cupboard beside the cooker spot (which had also been used by the previous homeowner), but this guy refused to acknowledge it. The guy became increasingly aggressive towards me and begun shouting. I eventually told him to leave my house and asked him for his name, to which he refused to give to me.

I called Currys who guaranteed the matter would be dealt with in 24hrs. 24hrs later still no response so I called them, only for them to inform me that the order had been cancelled. After numerous phone calls, I managed to get Currys to organise someone else to fit the cooker the next week - fitted in exactly where I said the cooker would fit.

I wrote to Currys about the conduct of their staff, and the fact that I had to make numerous calls to Currys to rectify the issue, as well as pay for another week of takeaways until our cooker was installed. I heard nothing from them, so I wrote again, and was told they would give me £20 compensation for full and final settlement. I wrote back stating that I didn't believe that was a reasonable offer, to which they wrote back saying they consider the issue finished and if I didn't want the £20 then so be it. I've written two more letters to Currys, and two emails since, but they no longer respond.

Is there anywhere I can go with this matter?

Hello Crosswire and welcome to the forums. :)


Further to maroon's comments, should you not wish to accept the £20 and Curry's won't further respond i'ld consider talking to your local Trading Standards Service, your local office can be found here...

sorry but claiming for eating takeaways is not part of SOGA it is the consumer that decided to buy expensive takeaways rather then eating salads, microwave meals or sandwiches.


if this is the case then when i bought my car do i get to claim back 2 weeks of bus/train tickets because the car was not delivered in 20 seconds from purchasing it.


do i claim back £5 in cash for the cost of cigarettes from the amount people on the train/bus could have/did borrow from me?


how about the electricity. because i was not at work everyday because of train delays preventing me getting there. i have wasted more electricity staying home watching TV.


what about the loss of earnings from not being at work.


all of the above is a no. because they delivered and completed there part of the deal within a reasonable time... you admit yourself that although it to two attempts you now have a cooker fitted and only within a week from first attempt..


if they refused to fit it. or it went on for months then you might have a case. but a couple weeks is classed as reasonable time. so good luck if you want to try, but i see very little light at the end of the tunnel.

Stay well away from Curry's Reading delivery service. I just purchased a fridge freezer from the Reading branch, (Delivered by Southampton dispatch) only to discover after delivery that the packaging was strewn across the front of my property. Customer Service said, "The depot was unavailable by phone" to collect the rubbish. In other words, "We don't care". Never, ever, use this unprofessional and uncaring company.
