    • @Jaybee in CF Claimant commitments are agreed between yourself and the Job Centre Work Coach.  So you will be able to discuss the local jobs market, transport available and all of the local issues.   As it is a two way constructive relationship, you can research all of the relevant information, so when you have your claimant commitment agreed,  the information you have obtained can be considered.              
    • look up on land registry who owns the property then get in contact with your local environmental heath dept.   dx  
    • Hello all,   I have recently moved into a new property. The bedroom window is facing a bunch of commercial crates which have trash on top of them. The trash is maybe two metres away from the window, making it impossible for the window to be open (I am also afraid of rats being there).   The other windows of the property are facing a communal, enclosed area, which is making it difficult for the property to be properly ventilated. I have already raised this issue with my estate agency and they are trying do to something about it (to be honest, if I leave everything to them, this issue won't be solved until my tenancy is finished, and that is more than one year away).   I am asking for advice, or how could I approach this issue.   I have spoken to my council and, since they do not deal in private property, there is nothing they can do, at least this is what they have told me.   The property with the trash is not owned by my landlord. It is an open space, with big crates, closed off by a fence. If I could, I would climb those crates and remove the trash myself but I cannot. I also cannot climb out the window to reach the trash, as the window is too small.   At times, I see a car in that property but I have never seen the driver. I left a note in the car's window explaining the issue and giving my number. This was around a week ago and nobody came back to me.   
    • Hi   First off ALL Tenants need to re report all the different repairs again via their repairs procedure. Yes its good to get a list of all properties repairs with photo/video evidence signed by all property tenants but you all need to fight this individually as well as a group.   Next you all need to look up your rights on Repair i.e. The Right to Repair Scheme and also their Complaints Procedure.   http://www.legislation.gov.uk/uksi/1994/133/made   https://england.shelter.org.uk/housing_advice/repairs/right_to_repair_for_council_tenants   All Tenants need to take control back with these repair and ask in writing titling any letter 'FORMAL COMPLAINT' and stating the repair and why it hasn't been carried out to date and an exact date when it will be completed.   You also require clarification whether these Repairs come under the Right to Repair Scheme and if so why we were never informed of this. (delete or amend)   You also require copies of the following:   Right to Repair Scheme Policy (Not the Leaflet Repair and Maintenance Policy (Not the Leaflet) Solar Panel Policy (Not the Leaflet) Complaints Policy (Not the Leaflet) Equality & Diversity Policy (Not the Leaflet) When you get the above policies you need to take your time reading them and just think to yourself 'DID THEY DO THAT' in relation to your issue and if not mark it this way you build a list of what they haven't done/followed as per there own Policies and use it against them.   They will have time limits to complete repairs within for Emergency, Urgent, Routine repairs and if they exceed that time limit and need to extend it remember it is with you the tenants agreement not them telling you and tough you can wait.   (bear in mind any repairs during COVID-19 the time limits are now different and most routine repairs are stopped)  
    • I was on UC in late March, and recently received some quite non-committal message that the commitments would be returning, but no indication when.     If I remember correctly the expectation was that we could find at least one job per day to which to apply, or some such nonsense.   Given that the government can only guess how many workplaces will be safe :  1) to commute to/from at the time of job application; 2) to work in at the time of job application;    3) to commute to/from at the date of starting a job ; 4) to work in at the date of starting a job,  5) to commute to/from at the date permanent WFH is dropped; 6) to work in at the date permanent WFH is dropped,    and given that we have lost 20% of our economy, I fail to see how they can both reasonably and immediately mandate any minimum figure of jobs we must apply for whilst this virus just killed over 135 people in the UK (stats released today).  That is only down from 155 last week, and about 175 a fortnight back.   At this rate it will be another 7 weeks MINIMUM before the mortality rate is zero - if it ever reaches zero before the inevitable second wave.

    • 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

Hi Guys,

 

I purchased a computer online at littlewoods.ie recently,

entered my credit card ect and received my confirmation of order,

 

however they have rang me up today and said that they are cancelling my order as it was priced incorrectly online,

 

where do i stand here - are they obliged to send the order anyways as it was advertised at the price i paid?

what should i do - do i accept that the order has been cancelled,

 

thanks very much for any help you can give me,

 

Ger.

no you don't need to accept their cancellation at all. The question is whether it is worth fighting for. How much is at stake?

I bought 2 computers for €62 each, they were incorrectly priced and should have been €620 (according to their representative)

 

I saw this on their website - T&C

 

3.2 Whilst it is our intention to keep our website up to date and error free, product description or pricing errors may occur. If we discover such an error after you have submitted an order to us, we will contact you prior to accepting your order with the correct details.

What do you reckon ?

Thanks,

I work in a mail order company and as far as i know they have done the correct thing. If we send the goods and then notice the error we will give them at the price advertised. If however we notice before we send the goods we advise the customer and ask if they still want the order. It states the same in there T&C.

As i mentioned i work for a mail order company Viking Direct / Office Depot and have never as far as i know had a problem since we have the same T&C on our website. Is it differnt in a shop if a item is priced wrong ? As i remember a post on this site about some shoes/trainers that was priced wrong and the advice he got was unfortunaltly the seller was correct in changing the price before the purchase.

Unfair contract term?
Not really, no. Unless it was used as a bait-and-switch tactic (which would very much be an unfair term), the company has every right to protect themselves against mis-pricing. It all boils down to when the contract is actually formed. In a store, no such problem as such as mistakes can be spotted and rectified straight away. With online companies however, the delay between processing the order and sending out the goods means that mistake won't necessarily get spotted until later on. As a result, most online companies state in their T&Cs that the contract will be formed on dispatch of the goods and that they reserve the right to cancel right until then, terms to which you have to agree by clicking a "I agree" box or equivalent.

 

The other thing about unfair terms is that it isn't if it confers the same rights on the company and the consumer. Say that the consumer mistakenly order a £1600 computer instead of a £600 one, on realising his mistake, he can cancel the order. It is only fair that the company selling a £600 for £60 can also cancel when realising their mistake.

 

Different kettle of fish if goods have been delivered however. Then the company would have by their own T&Cs great difficulties in arguing for the return of the goods or the difference in price.

I had the same issue with Tesco when they made a mistake selling a computer games system a few years ago.

 

They honored the deal in the end, it might be worth chasing.

This is a very good explanation in more details of what I was trying to say:

That may be your clue. Contracts and acceptance of them have been tightened a lot recently, mainly because this type of thing kept on cropping up. We had some threads on this back in 2006, I'll see if I can fish them out (I may be gone some time, lol). Or it could simply be that Tesco's just swallowed the difference to save themselves the hassle. In this case, however, no chance.

I can pretty much say it's not, I know Littlewoods and they are absolutely bloody awful customer services wise and there is no way in hell they'll back down, especially as their T&Cs are pretty much waterproof on this type of thing. And you know me, if I thought there was a way to get in there, I'd say so! :-D

See here for the famous cases which led to the tightening on acceptance and formation of contract.

 

Now see Littlewoods T&Cs:

 

Littlewoods Direct - shop for all the latest in fashion and homeware

 

2. Ordering Goods

2.1 All orders placed through our website will be subject to our acceptance of the order.

 

2.2 When you submit an order to us on our website you will receive a 'bounce back' confirmatory email of this order saying that we are processing your order. You will then receive a second email from us acknowledging your order and giving you estimated timescales for delivery. You should check both emails for accuracy and let us know immediately if there are any errors. Neither of these emails constitute acceptance of the order by us. Your order will be accepted by us (and a contract will then be formed between us) when we despatch the goods to you. Title to the goods will pass to you on delivery.

and

3. Processing your orders and payment

3.1 If you are paying for your order through your Littlewoods Direct Catalogue account, the relevant payment will be shown on your next statement.

 

3.2 Whilst it is our intention to keep our website up to date and error free, product description or pricing errors may occur. If we discover such an error after you have submitted an order to us, we will contact you prior to accepting your order with the correct details. You may then either cancel your order or re-confirm it based on the correct information. If we are unable to contact you, we will treat your order as cancelled.

 

Need I say more? ;-)

That would make a lot of sense, mine was about 2004/5. I think they ended up honoring thousands of orders, there was qutie a bit of news about it at the time. Maybe that was one of the things that got the retailers to re-think their T's & C's (as well as the huge increase in online shopping between then and now)
