    • I hope you mean I try to help people stand up to bullying - and not do the bullying!   I'll assume it's a compliment!     Well - that sort of demonstrates that you've not understood my point and (perhaps?) haven't actually read the OP?   My point is that it is not the boyfriend (the supposed "owner" of the car park) who is posting, but his girlfriend who believes that he "owns" his car parking space.  Yes - it usually makes sense to believe that what the OP is posting is the truth, but in this case there is every reason to believe that there is a possibility that the OP might be mistaken about her boyfriend's ownership of the parking space, because...  well, how would she know for sure whether he does or not?  He might be boasting or lying or simply mistaken.  (My understanding is that many people who "own" flats are often under the mistaken apprehension that they "own" a parking space when they don't.  All the more reason then that somebody else other than the "owner" might be even more mistaken).   I suppose what I'm getting at is that I was a bit surprised that both you and dx100uk were able to give such definite and certain answers to the OP without exploring her situation a bit more fully and ensuring that she fully and correctly understood her boyfriend's rights in respect of the parking space in question.  I was simply concerned that without getting more information from the OP, then the replies given to her might prove to be less than useful.  I wouldn't want her to leave thinking that there was absolutely nothing to worry about and then find out there was because she'd been misadvised because she didn't understand whether her BF "owned" the space or not.   Of course, it may be that my concern here makes absolutely no difference to the answer that needs to be given to the OP because it doesn't matter whether her boyfriend actually "owns" the parking space or not, which is fine.  But sometimes I think it would be helpful to the OP (and other readers like myself) if some of these legal niceties could be spelled out rather than left unexplained.    
    • I've spoken to my son in law and because the gearbox can be very expensive to repair, he would prefer to reject the car.   The garage isn't going to charge storage at the moment.   I feel they have been mislead regarding the service history.   How difficult would it be to get the finance company on our side in rejecting the car and sending back to the dealer?
    • The first thing to say is that you better go ahead and refund the buyer because otherwise she will end up getting negative feedback as well. We will try and help you get your money back from Hermes. Have you made a formal claim through Hermes and have they formally declined you and giving you reasons why? Presumably the item was properly declared and properly valued when the delivery was booked. You don't say whether or not you took out their so-called insurance. Please start off by reading around the sub- forum focusing particularly on the Hermes threats. There are lots of them. Get to understand the principles in respect of the arguments – the insurance element, your third party rights despite the fact that you booked it through Packlink. Have a look at other people's experiences of having sued Hermes, the process of issuing the claim, the defence, the mediation and have a close look at the advice that we give about how to handle mediation. It's highly likely that you will have to issue claim papers so also read around to understand the steps you need to take to bring a small claim in the County Court. It's straightforward but understanding the steps will make you far more confident about what you are doing. Have you started a formal complaint against Hermes and Packlink?

Hi all,

 

just looking into our charges with the HSBC and after reading up on these charges, still a little confused?

 

Is 'debit interest' claimable? although on my statement, the HSBC state this is a 'charge incurred for banking services' so not sure on this one?

 

Also, to be honest apart from the charges issue, I am on the whole a satisfied customer of the HSBC, we have multiple accounts with them, including 2 business accounts, 2 current accounts, loan and CC, although its only our two current accounts that has charges on them.

 

I know it has been mentioned before to set up 'parachute' accounts elsewhere, but I have a good relationship with our local branch and want to remain with the HSBC, so I guess whilst I think it will be worth claiming as we are probably looking at around a few thousand pounds in charges over the 6 years, what are the realistic possibilities of them closing ALL our accounts as I want to avoid this ??

thanks

I have just been through my current account statements online and the total charges on this account is £1591.00 (not incuding the 8% should it go to court)

 

I havent calculated the interest, as it seems tooooooooo complicated as its based on the agreed 'overdraft' interest and reading through other peoples postings, it doesnt seem worth the hassle of trying to calculate it when your account is in and out of credit each month.

 

think I will submit this amount for this one account and see how it goes, dont think I want to go the route with the 2 business accounts??

sounds like a plan, and a good one at that, just get your current accoutn out of the way first, to familiarise yourself with the process, then concentrate on your other accounts

I never heard anything from my PreLim request so sent off the LBA as planned 14 days after on the 2nd Aug.

 

I have today (8 Aug) received a letter offering me £1400 in settlement of the claim.

 

Not sure what I should do? as its pretty close to my original amount? should I accept and have done with it, what will happen if I decline? Im assuming that they will just let it go to court and I will win that way?
