    • There is a caveat. Within the first 6 months the assumption of a fault at time of selling means that it is for the seller to disprove.   This can be through showing, possibly as in the case of engine 'blowing up' in this thread, that due attention by the purchaser has been  paid to such things as the oil and water levels, all other adjustments have been maintained, any due servicing has been carried out, etc.   We have not been given details of make, model,  age, mileage on purchase, miles covered by OP and servicing history. It is for these reasons that I find the above post questionable.   There is actually no doubt that if you buy a vehicle and the engine blows up within three months then it is not of satisfactory quality. Because it has happened within three months and the six-month rule applies and that means that she is entitled to have a repair and if the repair fails then a refund or a replacement at her option
    • Thank you, I will have a think about where we go from here & if I do decide to progress with a claim with an initial letter, if I can pass it through you to check, I would be very grateful.  Thank you so much again for your assistance to date
    • Yes she told me she had a large company install cctv they didn’t install what they said and she took them to court and won , she then had another person fit them and there was a problem with her tv signal threatened him so he just took them out and gave her her money back . I didn’t know this until after I had installed them and she said the tv was playing up last time she had them fitted 🤦🏼‍♂️ ... this is why I’m so sure it’s nothing to do with what I installed she was happy I told her the problem was with her old analogue aerial and I would go in the loft and switch it to the digital one she declined , told her I would install the cctv on her laptop , mobile phone or connect to tv via router she declined all soloutions . There was no problem with the cctv working through her tv no break lines or pixels , just her tv signal  ive been back and forth trying to sort it out 
    • Quick question for my education (and I hope the OP's).   When sending copies of notices and evidence etc to a defendant, should it be sent recorded delivery or is first class with proof of postage sufficient (or even better)?   Can't recorded delivery be refused by the recipient?  And if it is refused, can a defendant legitimately argue that it was never received?   Sorry - don't want to drag this thread off topic but it seems sort of relevant.

    • This is a bit of a lengthy one but I’ll summerise best as possible.
       
      THIS IS HOW THE PHONECALL WENT 
       
      I was contacted by future comms by phone, they stated that they could beat any phone contract I have , (I am a limited company but just myself that needs a business phone and I am the only worker) 
      I told future comms my deal, £110 per month with a phone and a virtual landline, they confirmed that they could beat that, £90 per month with a phone , virtual landline  they also confirmed they would pay Vodafone (previous provider) the termination fee. As I am in business, naturally I was open to making a deal. So we proceeded. 
      Future comms then revealed that the contract would be with PLAN.COM and the airtime would be provided by 02, I instantly told them that this would break the deal as I have poor 02 signal in the house where I live as my partner is on 02 and constantly complaining about bad signal
      the salesman assured me he would send a signal booster box out with the phone so I would have perfect signal.
      so far so good.....
      i then explained this is the only mobile phone I use for business and pleasure, so therefore I didn’t want any disconnection time in the slightest between the switchover from Vodafone to 02
      the salesman then confirmed that the existing phone would only be disconnected once the new phone was switched on.
      so far so good....

Hi there, are you sure they are going to do a CRB check? They could just be checking your identity - I do that with all new employees, they have to bring their passport and one other form of identification to prove a) they are who they say they are and b) that they have the right to work in the UK.

 

They would have to inform you in writing that they will be conducting a CRB check. Have they asked you to fill in a declaration form for a CRB check? (sometimes it is in the application form) usually these forms have a section which asks if you have ever received a formal caution - you would have to admit to this I'm afraid. If you don't and it shows up on the CRB check an employer will see this as dishonesty.

 

However, not all employers require you to complete a declaration, only to sign a form giving your consent to the check.

 

Kind Regards

Likewise I have to do this. It is a legal requirement under the Asylum & Immigration Act for employers to verify the eligibility of the applicant to work in the UK.

 

Also, are you sure that it is a CRB check and not a CRA check? A Credit Reference check is often standard for those working in these industries. At certain levels within finance related organisations there may be temptation for employees to work with accomplices to defraud insurance companies so they check for debt history, CCJs etc to see whether you may represent a higher risk.

 

It is fair to point out though that a formal Caution is likely to be disclosed on either form of CRB check if you ever have to apply for one - it also needs to be considered if you are thinking of getting a Visa to travel to certain countries such as the USA. You do not however need to disclose it yourself if asked whether you have any criminal convictions.

 

You should however have filled in a form giving permission if they are checking either for CRA or CRB.

For a CRB check, you are required to complete a fairly long form and then present this form with the required forms of ID - which the person you give them to then has to write the details onto the form and sign it.

 

CRB checks are mainly for working with children and vulnerable adults, not the insurance industry, so I believe that this is not a CRB check, but proof of ID and address. You are likely to be subjected to a checks of the CRAs (ie credit check) to work in finance/insurance. CRA will not have any knowledge of cautions or convictions

Congratulations on getting the job - you should be fine if that was the feedback that you had from the interview.

 

From the CRB Website

 

Standard Disclosure

 

This is primarily available to anyone involved in working with children or vulnerable adults, as well as certain other occupations and entry into professions as specified in the Exceptions Order to the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act (ROA) 1974. Standard Disclosures show current and spent convictions, cautions, reprimands and warnings held on the Police National Computer. If the post involves working with children or vulnerable adults, the following may also be searched:

  • Protection of Children Act (POCA) List Protection of Vulnerable Adults (POVA) List
  • Information that is held under Section 142 of the Education Act 2002 (formerly known as List 99)

Yes & it will show on your CRB file for life.

 

This fact is the subject of much debate amongst civil liberty groups as even a serious conviction will eventually be expunged but not a simple caution - A situation NOT realized by this government when they introduced the CRB.

 

Also should you wish to visit you will NOT be permitted entry to the USA which has already happened to a family who's child had received a caution & where made to return home not having left the USA airport

Useful Information:-

 

Question : What is a police caution and how long does it last?

 

A caution is a formal warning that is given to an adult who has admitted the offence. If the person refuses the caution then they will normally be prosecuted through the normal channels for the offence.

Although it is not technically classed as a conviction it can be taken into consideration by the Courts if the person is convicted of a further offence.

 

Answer : Cautions are not covered by the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 so will never become spent. Depending on the type of offence they are 'stepped down' after a set period of time (5 or 10 years). This basically means that they will only be visible to police staff and not other agencies who do checks. The exception to this is if a person is the subject of an Enhanced Disclosure and then if relevant it will be disclosed.

Even after five/ten years the caution can still be disclosed if you apply for certain types of jobs, i.e. police, teacher, or jobs working with children and vulnerable adults. It will be disclosed if it is relevant to the job you are applying for.

 

Question : I want to travel to America but I have got a conviction/been arrested, can I still travel there?

 

Answer :

The USA have a visa waiver programme for any person holding passports from certain countries (British passports are included) as long as that person has never been arrested.

If you have been arrested you must declare it whether or not that arrest resulted in conviction. The Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 does not extend to the USA so you must declare all convictions regardless of whether they are classed as spent or not.

Most minor road traffic offences that were dealt with by way of fixed penalty (i.e. no arrest or court appearance) do not count and you will be eligible to travel under the visa waiver programme.

If you have been arrested/convicted then you must apply for a visa from the US Embassy in London before you travel to the USA. Failure to have a visa means that you could be refused entry and returned home at your own expense. It is not neccessarily the case that you will never be able to enter the US (just to correct JonChris) - just that you must apply for permission by way of a Visa first.

 

It therefore follows that prior to the step down a Caution will show on a Basic or Enhanced CRB, but after step down it will appear only on an enhanced CRB if it is relevant to the purpose for which the CRB is being requested. It is never 'spent'. You cannot enter the USA on the Visa Waiver scheme but may still be able to do so if you apply for a Visa before travelling.

 

Your new employer has told you that you should be OK if that is all that is on the CRB - I can't see why you would have been told that unless it is true, so you shouldn't need to worry too much.

Excellent sidewinder & yes I agree you MUST apply for visa before travelling but in most recent cases where cautions have been declared visa's have been refused

 

Perhaps a mod would/should make sidewinders post a sticky?:)

 

As more & more holiday makers are being stopped from entering the USA at the point of entry travel companies should make holiday makers more aware of the requirements.:mad:

 

American holiday companies call the 'War on Terror' the 'War on Tourists':rolleyes:
