    • Well, you've highlighted the problem yourself, whatever you decide will carry some risk.   However, I would think the risk of a default judgement & CCJ is to be avoided at all costs and the least worse thing would be to write them a two-line letter with their reference number and your new address.   As usual, any details you can give us on the forum sticky would be useful for the future      
    • That the value I paid for.. 250..  The cctv footage it's archived. 2 of them..

    • Thanks for the message that is what I thought. In the mean time they have sent another message, below, I can’t follow up with Amazon until 48 hours. But I will go armed.    “Your return period is 30 days with ourselves and then you are covered under the manufacturer’s warranty.”    
    • OK, I found the letter I was looking for:     Dear Sir/Madam,   Reference: [order number]   On [date], I placed an order for a [item] and it was delivered by you on [date].   I have discovered that the [item] has the following problem: [give details].   The Consumer Rights Act 2015 makes it an implied term of the contract that goods be as described, of satisfactory quality and fit for purpose.    Any returns policy that says I have to cover the cost of returning items must only relate to the situation where I change my mind about the item ordered and not where there is a problem with the item.    I should not lose out financially as a result of your breach of contract and accordingly all costs of returning the item should be met by you.    I also require you to confirm you will arrange for [the item] to be collected.   I look forward to hearing from you.   Yours faithfully, [Your name]

    • 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

My flatmate and I are due tio move out at the end of the month and, among other things have only just got our inventory.

This has been a long drawn out, 17 month, argument with the agents who were meant to provide a copy when we moved in.


Apart from a number of items that were not inlcuded on the report, which I have now emailed them details of and am awaiting an agreement from the landlord, I have noted that all the rooms, appliances ect have been classed as domestically cleaned and in most cases it was even stated that they were not "professionally" cleaned at the beginning of the tenancy.


Our lease stipulates we must have professional cleaning carried out before we leave, this seems fairly clear cut but as the property (as stated in the inventory) was only cleaned to a domestic standard when we moved in are we obliged to arrange/pay for for professionals or can we just ensure it is the same standard of cleanliness as when we moved in (i.e carried out domestically by ourselves)?


Also we have a loop pile carpet in the living room which has been cut and joined in the recess of a bay window.

Whilst hoovering a strand of carpet from this join was caught and by the time the hoover was shut off there as a 1 foot long and 1/2 inch wide patch unravelled.

I have spoken to a qualified carpet fitter who has stated that loop pile carpets should not be cut and joined in for this very reason.

On this basis can the landlord deduct from our deposit as I would look at this as either fair wear and tear or that the carpet was unfit for purpose, especially as the T&C's of our lease say we much keep the place cleaned which would include regualer hoovering.


Many thanks in advance, DB

If you are moving out, what on earth are you doing discussing the incoming inventory?? Don't sign anything now. It is too late and not your problem.


If the agent did not carry out a proper checkin and inventory, which you agreed and signed, at the beginning of the tenancy, they are going to have a hard job proving any damages!!


I would point out that you took the property without a professional clean so will be returning it in the same manner. You may have an argument regarding the carpet, but could resist this also on the basis that it was damaged when you moved in. How can they prove otherwise??

Bit of an update,


Further to me sending the details of ammendments to the agents they have replied that the landlord will need to agree to any changes and that the company they use is very thorough and, as far as they are concerned, the inventory is valid.


The landlord called and arranged to inspect the condition of the property with me and we went through all the various issues to be ammended.

As usual he was very vague and to each item he responeded "yeah ok, thats fine" but did not confirm any intentions regarding the checkout and if he would actually attempt to deduct anything from our deposit.

Despite emails I have not yet had a reply as to whether the ammendements have been agreed and wonder if the above makes any difference to my previous email.
