    • 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]
    • Pleased to hear that.   A general comment, for future readers of this thread, from my experiences of being an Executor.   Most large companies have a centralised 'Bereavement' department and I've found it's best to notify the death to them rather than the general customer service call centres. Search the company's website for 'bereavement'.   The bereavement departments are in my experience staffed by people who understand the processes when someone dies both for the relatives/executors and within their own companies and they get things sorted efficiently. (I've never had to use Vodafone's though).
    • Hi All, A simple question really. I received a NTK ticket on a lease vehicle last year from Parking Eye. As expected, they were adamant i was at fault and no payment was made. I highlighted to them that their signage no longer had planning permission and this was ignored however since ignoring this, they have gone quiet and have been for roughly 6 months now. I know they can claim for up to 6 years(??) after. As it was a lease vehicle, the RK was the lease company. PE were provided my personal address and had been communicating with me via letter there. I have now moved house and what i would like to avoid is them issuing court papers, something which i know PE like to do, me not being aware and eventually ending up with a default CCJ against my name. I appreciate i could write to them and update my address with them however i worry this may "Wake them up" a bit regarding my case. What is the best approach here?
    • Forget the warranty that means nothing and a warranty does not replace or over rule your rights under CRA amongst other consumer legislation. which state that outside of 30days but within 6mts its the sellers that is responsibility to confirm the item faulty, which has been done.   contact amazon with that proof and demand a replacement, refund or repair as they feel fit.

    • 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

Hello !

I am sorry to start another thread but from advice given earlier today bankruptcy seems like the only possible solution and I am trying to check this out with national debt line but have been hanging on for hours...the thing that most worries me is this.....

I may have to go bankrupt owing to debts from over 9 years ago .Most debts are in my name only...just two are in joint names with my husband.

we live in a shared ownership property that my husband bought in 1993 before we married. It is in his name alone ...my name has never been added to the deeds.

My worrying question is this...if I applied for bankruptcy would the official receiver be able to take or force a sale on our family home? we have two children and apart from the obvious emotional ties to our home to rent locally would cost us a min of £1200 per month and my husband only brings home £200 more than that. In answer to someones question earlier we have had a joint bank account but do not at the moment. Some household bills are in my name..only 2 I think but could this be a problem? sorry for so many questions ...I know I need to take a deep breath and calm myself! Thank you to all those taking the time to read this.

the or will look to see if you have an interest in the property,

have you been earning thoughout the relationship

who paid the mortgage and bills,

have you contributed to improving the property i.e built an extension etc

Thank you for replying...I'm really grateful. Well, we have had a joint bank account until 2007/2008 and all money was paid into that but the mortgage and rent has always been in his name only. For the last 10 years I have earned very little as we have had children. I was planning to return to work but my son was very ill with meningitis and I ended up with MRSA...all a bit of a nightmare but we are still here! Of course I can prove that I have been the minor earner and when an extension was built ages ago there was no money put up by myself, no earnings etc to be taken into account on the application. The precious few household appliances we have got are second hand and have been paid for in cash.

The OR would look at it like this simplified example

 

If the Mortgage was £1,000, and the bills were £1,000pm and you both earnt £1,000pm each then it is clear that you have an equal interest in the property regardless of who actually paid what.

 

If there was the same outgoings but he earnt £1,500pm and you earnt £500pm. Then He is paying the Mortgage and you share the costs of the Bills. I suspact this is the situation you have and that means you have no interest in the property and the OR would not be able to claim any of the house. The OR will ask the same questions i have so be ready with the answers and you should be fine

 

Hope that helps

Thank you so much for this info...it is exactly what I was looking for and I am certain that we fall into the last category. I am just so grateful that I have found CAG...we live in an outwardly affluent area (lived here all my life!) and debt hanging over my head has been the most isolating experience..all my friends give no sign of any money worries even now and I haven't felt able to confide in anyone. Thought I was very much in the minority and this all stems from debts around 10years old . Thanks to you and everyone at CAG for the unstinting great advice and support ... xx:)

Hey Katie,

 

just wanted to let you know that with regards the joint debts, if you go bankrupt those creditors will probably leave you alone but go for your husband to have them repaid in full, dependant on the level of joint debt and if there is any equity in the house then it could be best for both of you to go bankrupt, this VERY MUCH DEPENDS ON EQUITY AND LEVEL OF DEBT THOUGH, so please dont think im suggesting bankruptcy all round. Just be aware that once the creditors know of one half of the joint loan going bankrupt they will either go one way or the other an leave your husband alone or try to secure their debt to ensure they get something, they could do this by means of a charging order, however if when you have gotton rid of the other debts and payments you can afford to pay the payments to these crditors then you shouldnt have anything to worry about.

 

take care

debs

Before you take this step, aren't some of these debts statute barred? worth checking, there's load about this on the site.

Just a thought, but if the debts are over 6 years old are they legally enforcable anyway?


I only mouth my opinion, please look elsewhere for sensible advice! :)
