    • This is just so appalling. Trump is pardoning all and sundry who know him and also trying to pre-pardon people for future offences or court cases, for whatever.   But he's trying to speed up executions and reintroduce even more horrible ways of killing people, regardless of the circumstances of their conviction, before he leaves office.   The contradiction is shocking, I think it could be the worst thing he's done.   https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2020/dec/03/donald-trump-pardons-family-clemency-death-penalty
    • Here is the letter I would be sending to the garage;   Dear Sir/ Madam Ref: xxxxxx On xxxxxx I purchased, and took delivery of, the above vehicle Ford Kuga from you. On xxxxx I discovered that it was not of satisfactory quality: the transmission will need to be replaced. The Consumer Rights Act 2015 requires dealers to supply goods that are fit for purpose, as described and of satisfactory quality. However, the vehicle is clearly not roadworthy. You are therefore in breach of contract.  I am legally entitled to ask that your repair or replace this vehicle at no further cost to me. If you are unable to do so, I expect to be reimbursed the original purchase price of £xxxx, minus an agreed amount for fair usage. If you fail to reimburse me, I shall have no alternative but to issue a claim against you in the county court for recovery of the money without further reference to you. Yours faithfully,

    • Hi all im looking for advice when it comes to council tax liability for a new home if an eviction is started for our old home but then suspended due to court error and pandemic causes further delay in proceedings.   The short story is i'm a disabled carer getting legacy ESA and carers allowance who has lived in his own home for nearly 20 years with mortgage as leaseholder. (SMI loan helps with mortgage interest). Also terrified of the UC migration that a change of circumstance will cause so dragging my feet tbh.   Just before the Pandemic the freeholder of our "old home" obtained a dubious possession order and we received notice of eviction before the pandemic so signed a tenancy for a "new home" that we where grateful to be accepted for in a new local authority district. As a result we stopped paying the bit of mortgage interest we needed to pay in our old home in favour of paying the rent for the new home out of our own pocket but before we could move into the new home proper and tell the DWP about a change of circumstance to get the rent paid (natural migration to UC?) the pandemic locked us in our old home!   Now we still haven't moved because the possession order was set aside when the courts re opend post first lockdown because of court error but possession proceedings are still ongoing with the added bonus the mortgage company is now involved and there legal fee's alone have been added to our mortgage balance effectively consuming all equity that was left in the property, thus our long term plan to sell, settle debts and move into rental is destroyed.    The new home awaits us and we spend a couple of days a week there, we have been able to put cheapest carpets in and blinds and moved some stuff in. We pay the rent out of our small income for security to avoid homelessness but we cant abandon the old home yet because thats likely a bankruptcy for certain if we just hand it to the mortgage company..   Believe it or not this is still a council tax question because the council where the new home is want there council tax and have demanded hundreds but obv we cant claim CTR yet as we havent formally had a change of circumstance due to the delay in eviction and im not sure they will like whay i have to tell them.    So the primary question is will the council be able or even willing to reduce or cancel the liability for the new home under these circumstances until we actually get evicted formally from the old home?   I think when you have title to a property you cant claim help with rent on another property and rightly so even in times like this...   We also worried about losing the new flat because being housing association we supposed to live there as our main home but have been delayed moving as described, its pretty certain we are getting evicted in the new year one way or another then insolvency might follow that depending how it occures we are just trying to find a path to avoid insolvency, benefit fraud and homelessness and deal with the council tax in the new home to! Not a small task during a pandemic! Its a tricky customer this any help welcome...

hi guys,

i read a few threads and i feel you people can help me out. i bought a renault clio for £1295- 1999make and 98,665miles clocked on 10th september,2008 from hillington trade centre, west paisley road, glasgow. from the last few days , i could hear some noise from the engine so, i decided to take my car for servicing. today ,

when i went to collect my car from the nationwide centre....

 

they told that they didnt service the car, as the car is beyond repair, economically...had atleast 9 points which would fail the MOT due next feb, 2009. and he said he wouldn't trust the brakes.

 

the head gasket, is broken and the engine oil is leaking ...the front disc pads and disc to be replaced...exhast fail, coil spring fail.....engine mount......all sorts of problem ..

 

 

i feel like i have been cheated...as the dealer told me the car has been checked out by their mechanic and it is in good condition.....

 

what do i do...i feel helpless.....

Agreed. You need to formally reject the car under the SOGA, and advise them that you require a full refund immediately.

 

Moreover, tell them that they need to collect the car from its current location, as you believe the car is unroadworthy and therefore would be illegal for you to drive to them.

well, he said this car is a trade-in ...so he was reluctant to give any warranty or guaranty...although he offered me a waranty from a compny for £295/year but i declined...and after insisting a lot he agreed to give a waranty for one month 50-50 for parts and labour caping at £300...it is worthless...and soon after i bought the car i took warranty from warranty direct....but they will help me as these problems were there when i bought the car......should i email them or post them abt the issue...

Not them - the dealer cannot legally supply goods that are not "fit for purpose". This is your STATUTORY right, and totally overrides anything he talks about warranty or guarantee. This is also the reason the term "sold as seen" is irrelevant in law.

Call him first anyway to let him refuse over the phone.

 

100 miles is nothing really.

The dealer broke the golden rule....He wanted to be greedy and instead of unloading the car at auction with zero risk to himself he sold it to you!

 

Hopefully you will be offered a refund.

Why the long face Horsey?

well guys, i called him today....what he said is.....i told you the car is a trade in.....and head gasket can break any time...even with the new car...and about the brakes he said the car was checked and was roadworthy when he sold him to me and he is liable for nothing......he kept on repeating that it is a used car and a trade in....

i told him that i reject the agreement and i want a full refund and also that he need to collect the car....alll he said is 'i dont'...even when i told him i will be approaching trading standards and consumer direct for help...

 

guys i checked the miles today and i have acyually clocked more than 500 miles in less than a month...will that be a problem...he even said that the car has a mot so it is very well roadworthy....i told him the mot was done in feb this year and i bought the car in september.....but that went unheard...

 

please help .....

An MOT shows a vehicle is road legal at one snapshot in time - not for the course of the year.

 

Write him a letter before action, then sue.

Please do everything in writing, rejecting car and why ( not fit for purpse; unroadworthy, dagerous; list faults ) and ask for full refund under SOGA and give 7 days to respond or take them to court.; they are responsible.

And dont use the car once you have rejected it.

Hillington Trade Centre- what a bunch of chancers.

 

I went for a test drive in a white golf at the beginning of september- saw the car on ebay and there was not a chance the car was roadworthy.

 

Suspect I may have looked at your Clio, as it was around that time, but in the end i got a much nicer, roadworthy car than anything avaiable at this dump- a disgrace to Glasgow.

 

Never buy from there!!!
