    • Not really. The signs have to go where they are practical. Every single yellow should have a time plate, and the motorist has to look for it - you can just say you couldn't see it. If it's there, and I assume the CEO took a photo of it, then the driver has neglected his obligation to find out what the restriction is before parking.   The only way you might be able to argue this is if the sign is next to a separate stretch of yellow line - eg, separated from the one he parked on by, say, a road junction or a parking bay. Every individual stretch of line needs its own sign.
    • You haven't told us anything about the vehicle in terms of the make model mileage – price paid et cetera. Also where was it advertised and what the advertisement say? On the basis of what you have told us, you should have no problem asserting rights whether or not you are dealing with a trader or a private seller. However it would be helpful if it was a trader – and you say that it is and that you have evidence. The problem is, whether they trade. Do they have any seizable assets? You obviously dealing with somebody who is going to be very slippery even if you get a court judgement against them. Do you know where they live? Do they and their own property? And I suppose it won't be much of a comfort to you but it may be instructive to others when I say that you have managed to acquire all this evidence – but what a shame you didn't go about this before you parted with your money rather than afterwards.
    • Brillliant reply from Caroline Voaden MEP on Twitter.   Who will hold these people to account asks @june_mummery ? She has also asked if she can come back to attend fisheries com mtgs. Thing is June you wanted to leave. You wanted us to have no voice here, to go it alone. You all crow about your ‘win’. This is what it means. Well done
    • Thank you. What you have suggested about a motor trader had occurred and yes she has been naive about this. They were sufficiently satisfied to purchase the car and they did know about the problem. She had been driving it up until the morning of the sale with no problems and she had told them about the oil leak - it's otherwise in very good condition, has a long MOT and has been serviced regularly. There's also the issue of insurance should she accept return (she transferred insurance to her new car )
    • June Mummery, a Brexit Party MEP, has just woken up to the fact that leaving Europe gives us less control over fisheries. From her Twitter feed.   Attending the penultimate session of the #EuropeanParliament’s #FisheriesCommittee #PECHcommittee) with #BritishMEPs. The big question now is, who will be here to hold these people to account while they still control Britain’s waters, but the UK has no representation?

I've noticed that a few people (including myself) have queries relating to local authority and benefits eg; housing benefit, council tax etc. and we are posting them under the general consumer section.


Would it be possible to have a new section relating to local authority issues or benefits as they seem to be seperate issues from general consumer ones?


It might then be easier for someone with knowledge of these issues to find us and offer help.


Many thanks

:razz:the winner takes it all :razz:

Hi from izzyheskint this makes for interesting reading,

DWP - Resource centre - Information for local authorities - Publications - Guidance and manuals - HB/CTB Overpayments Guide

i have been over paid HB to the sum of £1,800 the council have admited they made the mistake by not including my working tax credit in my HB claim, this claim was made in january 2005 they informed me of this mistake in November 2006. The council now use what they call data match and that's how they noticed this. I am disputing this.


Quote- Powys county council Letter

Although we made the error the benefit law says that we can ask for the money back However the law also says that this can only be done in certain circumstances. the point that we must look at is whether you could reasonably have been expected to realize that an overpayment was taking place.


As for a section on local authority and benefits i think someone has to start a thread for this, I am new to this site and still finding my way around
