    • Hi,  I'm new here, and hoping that this is the right place to post this.   I applied for pip and was awarded standard mobility (10 points).  I did an M.R. but got the same result. They acknowledge that I can't leave my house without having someone with me. They accept that I'm not completely housebound as I go out to appointments, which are not a regular occurrence, they also said that they can't award me enhanced because I'm not out most days.  Is this correct?  Surely it shouldn't matter how often I go out? 
    • The Legal Ombudsman has a wider remit than the SRA, and can always refer matters on to the SRA where they find a breach of the SRA's code.   I'd suggest writing to the solicitors, highlighting these issues, asking them to refund the money. If they don't then complain to the LO.
    • Good morning all,   I have an update for you all, shortly after my first hearing i was told i would need to have a rehearing with another company, Obviously i agreed but after the initial grievance hearing the person then asked me to enter into a private conversation, I have received the settlement offer and are disgusted as its not even half of my monthly  salary, I'm not sure what to do at this stage as i dont have the funds to finance a solicitor,so any advice would be appreciated.  
    • Sorry, but what does this mean?   Who are ARC? It would be helpful if you could be a little bit more clear about what happened. I don't understand why you are not simply proceeding against Amazon – because it is clearly their responsibility as it was their driver or courier company
    • I understand that you were involved in a contentious divorce in respect of which there was a bill for court costs – £850. You decided to challenge the costs in court and you lost and an order was made against you. We decided to appeal the order but before the appeal was heard, the solicitors made you a without prejudice offer of a 50-50 split – £425. You agree to this and you signed the document to that effect which you returned to the solicitors. Despite that the solicitors are now trying to impose the original £850 order. Is that the correct order of events? "Without prejudice" is certainly something that doesn't seem to be very well understood, including by solicitors. "Without prejudice" can protect an offer from being disclosed to the court where the offer has been refused so that it is not binding on anyone. However, without prejudice cannot be used to hide everything from the court – including wrongdoings, unethical behaviour et cetera. It seems to me that once you sign the agreement you effectively had a contract. I'd like to know a little bit more about the agreement that you signed but presumably it was intended to bring a halt to any further proceedings. I don't think there is any difficulty about disclosing a contract to the court in the circumstances. It is only the offer which was made without prejudice. Once the agreement was accepted and signed then the document acquired a wholly different character. It was no longer an offer open to be accepted or refused. It was a legally binding contract which imposed obligations upon both sides. In my view the solicitors have acted in a highly unethical way and I would begin by making a complaint to the SRA. I wonder whether the solicitors proposed the 50-50 split to you without consulting with their client and when they then contacted their client and told her what had been agreed, she refused to accept it and on that basis the solicitors recognised that they had made an error but rather than accept their responsibility and footing the £425 out of their own pockets, they preferred to get it from you. Of course this is just speculation but it seems to me to be quite a possible scenario. I'd like to see the agreement post up here please – that my sense is that you should complain to the SRA and you should tell the solicitors that this is what you're doing.

    • Hi,  
      I was in Sainsbury’s today and did scan and shop.
      I arrived in after a busy day at work and immediately got distracted by the clothes.
       
      I put a few things in my trolley and then did a shop.
      I paid and was about to get into my car when the security guard stopped me and asked me to come back in.
       
      I did and they took me upstairs.
      I was mortified and said I forgot to scan the clothes and a conditioner, 5 items.
      I know its unacceptable but I was distracted and Initially hadn’t really planned to use scan and shop.
       
      No excuse.
      I offered to pay for the goods but the manager said it was too late.
      He looked at the CCTV and because I didn’t try to scan the items he was phoning the police.
       
      The cost of the items was about £40.
      I was crying at this point and told them I was a nurse, just coming from work and I could get struck off.
       
      They rang the police anyway and they came and issued me with a community resolution notice, which goes off my record in a year.
      I feel terrible. I have to declare this to my employer and NMC.
       
      They kept me in a room on my own with 4 staff and have banned me from all stores.
      The police said if I didn’t do the community order I would go to court and they would refer me to the PPS.
       
      I’m so stressed,
      can u appeal this or should I just accept it?
       
      Thanks for reading

Has anyone else had a problem with Currys refusing to take old appliances away on this any item over £150 free collectiona and recycling? I have just had my dishwasher delivered and the driver refused to take my old machiine away as I hadn't ticked a box on the online order form. I explained that I had looked for a box that offered free collection and as there wasn't one I ticked none. The delivery man promised me that Currys would send a lorry to pick it up in the next couple of days. So I took the new machine. Then I rang the customer services to check when they would pick it up and they said that they would not pick it up because I hadn't ticked the box. I said that the box was now on the website (I checked) but was not there when I placed my order. They said I was lying and they would not pick it up. So I called the complaints department who said that no they would not pick it up as I hadn't ticked the box. I again explained that there was no box to tick but they said that there was. I know there is now because I have just checked but there wasn't when I ordered it. Why would I not tick the box to take my old appliance away if there was a box to tick? But they will not pick up my old machine. Obviously its not really free collection as it is reflected in the price of the item, so effectively I have paid for collection. What can I do?

which dishwasher and when did you order the item? Some pages still remain on the net as archived pages.

You'll be in a better position if you can produce the webpage.

Hi kabukiman, thanks for responding. I ordered it 17.06.09. It is a hotpoint FDL570A. As soon as the delivery driver said have you ticked the box I told him there was no box to tick and I called up the page on my laptop to show him. I could not believe it when I found that the delivery page has now got a 'free collection' box to tick. I told him I am not stupid, I buy lots off the net and I know how to use websites. And I would hate to pay for a free offer so you can be sure I searched very carefully for a free collection box. It was obviously added after my order but I cannot prove it. My personal feeling is that they are offering it as an incentive for people to buy from them not a competitor so if you buy from them they must assume that you will want the free collection, rather than that the customer has to ask for the offer. I have told their complaints department that I don't want the machine and they can come and take it back and I will have my money back. But on reflection it seems to me I would do better to let them come to pick it up and give the broken machine back to them and keep the new, that way albeit rather messily we all get what we want - they get the sale and I get the collection. Is that too sneaky? =)

Don't know if you can see this page, its dated 13th june

 

site:currys.co.uk currys hotpoint FDL570A - Google Search

 

click on "Cached"

 

This is just the main page, but I have to say there is the option for collection.

Under "services & installation" there's a drop-down menu.

Assuming the date and page is correct, it's a difficult one as not all web pages are kept, esp the one you want.

Just on a more practical point, do you get any benefit from them picking it up, such as a discount on the price?

 

If not, councils sometimes pick them up for you, or better still, if the machine is still working, I am sure a charity would appreciate it and will have volunteers who can collect it for you.

I believe the drivers on a scrapping route take a larger van, hence them refusing to take your old machine away.

 

It's the same thing if you buy in store though, we have to ask if they want scrapping or not, in order to book the correct delivery, as the systems show delivery with and without free scrapping.
