    • Okay, that will suffice as a letter of rejection – although I don't understand why you have to write pages and pages of everything instead of simply making the point that you need to make. The same with your claim form. It's a great shame that you haven't actually stated your your main cause of action on your claim form which is that you asserted your statutory right to reject and that the dealer breach their statutory duty by not accepting the rejection and refusing to refund. This is a glaring omission and at some point you have to remedy it. If you haven't actually claimed that then you haven't given the dealer an opportunity to defend on that particular point – and of course by not bringing it up now, in principle you are not asking the court to address that point. You should amend the claim. Once you sue on the basis that you have asserted your right to reject and that the dealer refuses to comply, then you have pretty well 100% chance of winning. However, you are not exploiting this because you have not raised this in your particulars of claim. Strictly speaking you should amend the claim and then the dealer should have a further right to put in a defence. Of course I may have missed it in your nine page particulars of claim so please will you confirm that you did not raise the issue of rejection in your claim form.
    • Thanks - I got this off ABTA website   If there are significant changes to the main characteristics of the holiday that mean a significant change to the holiday as whole you are entitled to an offer of an alternative holiday, or a refund of your holiday cost. ABTA cannot determine what is and isn’t a significant change to your particular package holiday, however a general overview of what might be a significant change is below:   a change of resort;  a change of accommodation to that of a lower category and/or price;  a change of flight time or delay of flight of more than 12 hours (in respect of a 14-day duration.  A change of flight time less than 12 hours may still be regarded as a significant change in respect of a lesser duration) or involving a reduction in time spent at the resort which is significant in relation to the length of the holiday;  a change of airport that's inconvenient to you.  If the holiday or trip can’t actually be provided due to closures and limitations, then you have a right to a refund.   On Jet 2 T & C's it does say a change of accommodation is a minor change,   however,  I think that is subjective as what is minor to one person is possible significant to another and to me it is significant that the hotel is closed.   They have not even said what they would offer me so I agree I don't think we should pay any balance until this is at least discussed.   There are only 2 other hotels in Punta Prima which offer all inclusive and both get poorer reviews that the one we booked.   I know this won't make a difference to Jet2, however one of them is also 1.5km from the beach! Our booked accommodation was actually on the beach.   I am so frustrated with Jet 2 and unsure where to turn now.
    • Well you need to show some financial reason for the temp lapse in reasoning..   And it would help to mention and send proof that since the event in January...you have used and purchased your own passes regularly so have learnt from your mistake   I would get this in today Time is tight to court case
    • Hi    Thanks for your comments    Here is my 1st letter of rejection sent by RD and amended Def response    Hope this is a bit better now Redact 1st Letter to DF Autos complain about VW polo.doc Defendant Response.doc
    • You should certainly pointed out to them as quickly as possible. Do in writing. However, you will need to assess the cost of the damage – the repair –. I don't know anything about this vehicle – is a new vehicle? Although the damage might be unsightly, is it very important to you to get it repaired? Or would simply a financial compensation satisfy you?

    • 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

Old council tax bill from when boyfriend was a student

Today, totally out of the blue, my boyfriend received a £600 bill for council tax owed from periods in 2003-2004/05 where he would have finished school and been waiting for college to start and where he would have finished college and been waiting for university to start. I also notice that for the first of the times they want money for he wouldn't have even been 18! During these periods he wouldn't have been able to claim benefits or jobseekers allowance as he would have been classed as a student BUT when I asked the council tax people today, they told me that people are liable for council tax when changing institutions (this was after a discussion amongst themselves since no one actually seemed to know the answer :rolleyes:).

 

I don't understand how it took them this long to contact my boyfriend about this, they spoke to him and his flatmates in his last flat to sort out student exemption, at which point he gave them all his previous addresses etc.

 

When I google for any answers all I can find is info from other councils, I assume all councils have different rules for this?

 

We're not really sure what to do now. Should we dispute the bill or just arrange repayment? Any advice would be appreciated.

The council bill is for 3 separate periods of time, In all these periods he would have had 1 flatmate, they want money for 2 different addresses and he would have had a different flatmate at each address (I hope this makes sense!)

 

The flats were rented.

 

My boyfriend would only have been under 18 for the first period he is being billed for (so obviously we plan to dispute that one) I don't know about his flatmate at the time. The second period was when he had finished college but had been accepted to university. The 3rd was when he had graduated but had moved out of his flat early although we have no proof of this so accept that we will probably have to pay it.

 

He would have turned 18 during the first period they are claiming but would also have started college before he was 18.

 

 

 

When we spoke to the council they said the bills were all for times when he wasn't classed as a student. There was someone else on the forum with a son in the same situation (also with dundee council) here here but I don't really understand what they managed to find out :(

okay need to plead ignorance and send them a letter to get written confirmation edit the following:

 

 

Dear Whoever,

 

I have received a demand for council tax dated xx/xx/xx for periods from xx/xx/xx to xx/xx/xx and xx/xx/xx to xx/xx/xx and I wish to dispute my liability for it.

 

For the first period of these dates I was under the age of 18 (d.o.b xx/xx/xx) so cannot be held responsbile for council tax during this period.

 

I attended XXXXXXXXXXX School, address, Postcode and therefore a student along with my flatmate. I then started COLLEGE/Address on xx/xx/xx and then progressed to UNIVERSITY/ADDRESS on xx/xx/xx and I left address at the time on xx/xx/xx.

 

At all times I have been in contact with the local council and always declared my student status and what college and university and the courses attended. As you can see I have been a continuing student and was not entitled to any benefits or jobseekers allowance during any of these periods as I was a continuing student.

 

If you assertain that i am still liable for any of these periods you claim please provide me a breakdown for these period and an explaination to each period why i would be liable and if i was liable why was I not entitled to claim council tax benefit for these periods.

 

 

something along those lines

Thank you so much Ida, I will write a letter and get bf to sign it tomorrow.

 

The only problem is I know that bf and his flatmate wont have filled in all the student exemption forms that they should have, they will probably just have been receiving bills and thinking "we're students, we don't have to pay CT so we can just ignore this". I will try anyway.

 

Thanks again :)
