    • Hi All    I've spent 2 weeks without a phone and over 4 hours between phone and livechat talking to samsung about my broke s10e phone screen.   I bought the phone in June 2021 and long and short of it the phone screen broke while in my pocket. I made a call before getting in the car and it was fine. Went to make a call when I got out the car and the screen had cracked and some LCD damage. The LCD damage has now fixed itself. I called samsung to get this repaired and they flat out refused to repair it as it was physically damaged and their warranty only covers manufactuer defects and that all their phones are rigoursly tested. I told them that if all their phones are rigoursly tested and don't break in peoples pockets just like that then my screen must be one with a manufacturers defect and that it is covered by the warranty then. At which point after climbing as high up the chain as I could this was the only answer I would get.    Is there anything I can do here ? I am not lying about it breaking in my pocket. It's got a full phone case only things showing are front/back camera and fingerprint reader and no marks besides from placing my case on. I just don't feel that it's fair that they expect me too pay £190 to fix the screen when it is obviously defective. What if the replacement screen breaks randomly then they will just expect me to pay another £190 I expect.    I've also tried approaching EE who my phone contract is with to which I was advised to go  to samsung or they could quote for a repair or I could early upgrade.   Please any advice would be greatly apreciated I'm at my wits end here.

    • Complain to Mazda UK.  Tell them you've got the safety recall and you don't want to use Mazda Crap Dealer for the work but your nearest alternative is 40 miles away.  Ask what they suggest you do...   Of course, as you've already got it booked in etc you probably don't want to mess about with it, and it is a safety recall so needs attention.  And your old dealer might not be happy with you - but can they be any worse?  Think about it.  You could just complain and see how they treat you in 3 weeks time when you bring it in...   But I like being awkward... and it can have it's downside...

    • 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

Tenancy Deposit Scheme - Landlord says not applicable

We moved into our new house in April on a Short Assured Tenancy. We were experiencing some financial difficulties at the time, so we agreed with the landlord to "pay up" the deposit over a period of 4 months. We agreed to pay £100 extra for the first 3 months in addition to the rent, and then on the 4th month to pay an extra £350, making a total deposit payable of £650 (one months rent).

 

Last month our landlord started to become somewhat of a nightmare - allowing his friends to enter our house with his set of keys without our knowledge to retrieve his mail, refusing to repair appliances etc. So we came on here to read up on a few issues. It was here we discovered about the TDS.

 

We contacted our landlord to ask what scheme we were in and he said none, he'd never heard of it. After several conversations, it has transpired we are in no TDS and he says that because we agreed to "pay up" the deposit, this excludes us from the TDS and as far as he is concerned, that's it - he'll keep the deposit in his account. When I suggested to him that as we were "paying up" the deposit, surely it would have made more sense for him to take out the form of TDS insurance...he replied that as far as he's concerned the matter is closed - he doesn't have to comply with the TDS.

 

We're read on here that you can claim 3x the amount back via the courts, but to be honest we'd be happy to just have the deposit amount we've paid back so we know he isn't going to try and keep it or anything.

 

So, this brings me to the question. We've paid 3 months of £100, so he has £300 in deposit so far. This month we are due to pay the final installment of £350 - are we within our rights to not pay this to him? Also, can we ask him to return the £300 deposit also?

 

Thanks in advance for your help! :-)

If the tenancy is an ast and not over 25,000 rent a year the tds scheme applies, you would have a case for return of the deposit and 3x penalty through the courts.

Thanks for your reply!

 

Although I technically haven't paid the FULL amount of the deposit until tomorrow when I am due to pay the last payment of £350. So far I have only paid £300 of the required £650. So would tomorrow, since that is the first day he has the "full" deposit be the day from which he is required to register it in a TDS? Or should he have registered it from the beginning when I started paying his the monthly installments?

 

Cheers

Because as it stands Tenancy Deposit schemes apply to England and Wales only, not Scotland. Hence no need to place the deposit in a scheme.
