    • Hi Sorry but i am still stuck on where to go next in all of this.   This week the dealer contacted me at the 11th hour to talk repair of my car. He seemed only interested in the repair in speaking of just one of the problems  and i was struggling to get him to commit to the other fixes required. I asked him about the service history log and the proof that he had changed the cam belt.   He has told me that he will chase the service log book through his accountant. (I'm confused why through his accountant) and that his mechanic would provide the paperwork for the cambelt work, although he is away until September. (I dont believe any of this. He has had months to do this)   Back in June he said in a text to me that he would get my car fixed once his supplier opened for business from the 4th July and arrange a date with me. From that date onwards i was unable to contact him. He didn't answer his phones or reply to my texts or answer machine messages. He has told me now that his business was closed during that time.    I asked him about the 3 recorded messages i had sent him that were signed for. He said that he has not seen any letters. Somehow though he has sold 10 cars throughout May, June and July. I have been watching his stock level on Autotrader and he has been advertising his new stock and his sales on facebook throughout this period. Also he has chosen to contact me this week on the night before i was stating i would take action.   Frustratingly i expressed my desire to return the car to him for a refund and he has told me that because i didn't reject the car in the first 30 days then that wont happen. How could i reject the car if his business was apparently closed, we was not responding to me other than initially putting off any attempt at repair work.   I am feeling completely cheated by this man. He has even accused me of purchasing a car from him that i knew was faulty!!    I have shared my story recently on a Land Rover forum and interestingly a member of the forum has come forward and told me that he had also test drove the car before i did. He said the car displayed the errors i am experiencing and that the dealer had acted suspiciously. This forum member has offered to write me a statement if its of any use?   September the car is due an MOT and it is likely to fail because of the work he has not done. If i take this matter to court and it takes 6 months then what do i do if the car fails the MOT or the faults cause the car to brake down? I need this car for travelling to work and back.   Is it a viable option for me to get the car fixed myself and then claim that cost at court? I need a working car and i do not trust this dealer. He is clearly telling lies and i dont trust him completing the work to a satisfactory level if at all. Im assuming he is wanting to wait for HIS MECHANIC to get back from his holiday too. Strange time to be away for several weeks.   If i was to get my garage to do the repairs i could also ask them to confirm if the cambelt was ever changed. I'm convinced it wasn't.   Please advise. I am incredibly stressed out.
    • Do they need the insured's permission?  Won't the insured have agreed for the insurer to have conduct of any claims and to assist in any court case(s)?   I don't understand why the OP is reluctant to assist their former insurer?

    • 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 i hope someone can help, i was sent to do a job for my company, delivering goods to a customer, due to the fact i was driving a hgv i had to park next to the customers site. the only space avalible was a private parking box oppisite the customer, the customer unloaded my trailer one side and then i have to move over to the over side of the road for the customer to unload the rest, while i was being unloaded i was given a parking ticket, which i was told dont worry the customer will pay it as we get them all the time.

 

i phoned my boss and told them and was told to hand it in. turns out the customer has refused to pay the 60 quid fine, so my company has taken it out of my wages, which i consider to be out of order as it was them that sent me to do the job.

 

i have argued this with the boss and have got lots of support from other drivers and so called manager but its now got to the point i am going to have to take legal action, i think its fair enough to pay a fine if im stupid enough to stop and run into a shop while on yelow lines but not when im told to go to that customer. if i had refused to do the job i would be facing diserplinery action. so im stuck in a limbo, Any help would be most appreciated thankyou.

Unless it is written into your employment contract, I believe it is illegal to deduct such charges from your wages. Even if it were a contract term, I think in these particular circumstances they will be on a very sticky wicket legally speaking.

 

It may be that the legal route is the only one open to you.

All I can do is offer some support mate. The company I used to work for had a shop in Hammersmith I think it was. There was no where to unload, so you had to park the truck on double yellows. The company paid this fine every week for something like 20 or so years!

Your employer is not allowed to make deductions from your wages without first telling you and you agreeing to it, as far as I know. Keep plugging away mate and good luck. jed

The owner of the vehicle is liable for the charge. If that's not you, you can't have liability imposed on you by the ownerjust because you were the driver - unless your employment contract states that you will be responsible for paying PCNs incurred.

Yeah, do. Don't let him fob you off with the phrase "transfer of liability". That only applies in certain situations - the owner can't legally transfer liability just because someone else was driving, and in any case he hasn't done so. He's gone direct to you for payment against something the owner is seemingly liable for. (But do check your contract!)
