    • Can anybody advise me please?   Been living in rented accommodation for over 11 years, old landlord who leased property with his shop has now left and so agents have become my new landlords, so gave me a new contract.   I'm really nervous as not sure what my rights are and could I get evicted as new contract says short term, 6 months.
    • It's the only way to proceed, he has to prove irrevocably that he gave me that information, and agreed to it, which he cannot do because it doesn't exist. Not only that, he sent me a trade sales invoice, other than that you're pretty spot on.
    • Sorry - need to put my glasses on!   I think you and the other posters have been at cross-purposes because they haven't followed what you are trying to argue.  You aren't arguing a fault etc with the car, you simply want to cancel it as a distance sale, and because the vendor did not provide the necessary cancellation information pre-contract in a durable medium, you are saying that you therefore have 12 months plus 14 days to cancel AND that the vendor has to pay the collection/recovery costs.   Although I understand that argument, I don't know if that's the best way to proceed or not.   I suspect not many people have tried to argue it with second-hand cars.  And that might be, for some reason I don't know, that it's a non-starter or it's too risky.
    • No, not all all.  It's up to them to prove you were the driver.  Well done in not telling them!   Remember in all this you are legally in the right.  Their parking fee was paid.  You're not trying to "get out" of something you owe.  They are in the wrong as far as the law goes.   So how about sending them something like -   Dear BW Legal,   cheers for your Letter Before Claim.   I don't earn owe your clients a bean, indeed your clients owe the driver of the vehicle who paid the parking fee - twice.  It is your clients' responsibility if the machines they buy second hand on eBay don't work properly because they're too tight to pay a technician to maintain them.   Your clients also gave me to no right of appeal or of paying a discount in contravention of their own industry's Code of Conduct.   You can either drop this foolishness now or your clients can get a good hiding in court, both are fine by me.  I fancy a winter holiday and I fancy financing it by an unreasonable costs order under CPR27.14(2)(g).   COPIED TO NCP   The reason i say to send to NCP too is because unscrupulous solicitors are well into their clients starting claims which are bound to lose, after all they get the £££ in any case.

    • I’m in desperate need of help
      I bought some clothes online in may through Evans and paid through PayPal
      returned them all seven days later
      I waited the 14days for my refund and no refund came
      I put in a dispute through PayPal but I didn’t get any emails to escalate the case - PayPal closed it. 
      evans said they couldn’t refund the money because PayPal have cancelled the refund because of the open dispute
      I contacted PayPal
      they said the dispute had been closed but Evans at no point had attempted a refund.
      fast forward to today
      I’ve got copies of numerous messages sent to and from twitter messages as it’s the only way I can contact them
      I’ve also contacted their customer service too
      all I get is PayPal have cancelled refund because dispute is still open.
      I have proved that the dispute is closed
      I have got an email saying that if Evans sent the refund they would accept it
      but up until the date I got the email they have not once attempted a refund .
       I have sent them a letter before court email
      I have even offered to have the full refund as a gift card just to get this sorted !
      I’m literally at the end of my tether and don’t know where to turn next !
      i suffer with mental health issues and this is affecting my health and I’d saved the money for a year to buy these clothes as I’m on a low income .

Hi all! Just joined the forum tonight, looking for a little advice, sorry if i tread on old ground!


I've had sky tv, phone and broadband for almost a year and a half now. Since joining my tv package has been all the entertainment packs (no sky sports or movies). Towards the end of last month i called up Sky to enquire how much it would cost to add on all sky sports and sky movies channels. Up until that point i had been paying £44 per month. I was advised that my new monthly payment would be £48 per month. I had an inckling that this may be wrong but i made sure (on two occassions) that i repeated everything and got the operator to confirm my new monthly cost. On both occassions the operator agreed that a full tv package, my current phone package and my current broadband package would £48 per month. Based on this verbal quote i asked for these new products to be added to my package.


What happened next i half expected. Lone behold got a bill through for much much more than i was quoted. Its going to be around £70 a month.


Would i be correct in saying that Sky lawfully would have to stick by their verbal quote (wrong or not) and the only way they can correct this wrong is by then writing to me and giving me 31 days notice of change of subscription fee as set out in their terms & conditions. Or (i know its a longshot) are they tied in to their verbal quote for longer than that?

I would have thought you would at least have right to be put back in the position you were before as in old package. Dont know about them having to honor described fee unless you recorded it of course and can argue that. Thing is what verbally quoted in any way on the system? If not might be a losing argument as they could say just a mistake. Thing is you hinted you knew the price sounded wrong, but hey maybe there is some offer on for all you know you could have thought, but sometimes our suspicions are right.


If I were you I would straight away raise a complaint online through the mysky site and take it from there. You never know if they value your custom they may honor the mistake. The escalation dept once complaint unresolved first time do have some powers. But if not recorded and sky say didnt happen its your word against theirs, see how you go along xx


ps. Ida in fife hot on these topics, she may add her knowledge at some point xx

yip as you assumed the £48 quoted was for tv alone not for all 3


they will say it was a mis- understanding


there is a possibility that they may be able to listen to the call


do as lou says and send an email stating what you have here and request the call be listened too and the price given honoured for at least a small period

thanks to both of you, i'll give that a try. Just a note though, Ida you said that the price of £48 was for the tv only. Funny thing is, when you look at the breakdown on the bill the tv on its own is £52 i think, so the £48 quoted doesnt come up anywhere at all. But your right in what you say, thats obvisouly what the guy was qouting me, tv alone. Would you say its easier emailing them rather than calling them first then?

it was £48 until the 1st sept it's now £51.


You can do either, just that they guys dealing with emails have more time to look into it.
