    • £1300 is fine. Don't worry about it. Don't worry about the disclaimer. It has no effect. They are trying to introduce a new term into a contract which has already been made. It has no relevance. Even if a certain delay was acceptable, the fact that they have already had your computer for three months and they are now effectively suggesting a further two months that is five months which amounts to about 20% of your period of ownership – is not acceptable. What I'd like to know – and I think is quite important – is what they say in their warranty if the computer is beyond repair. I'm assuming that you are prepared to bring a small claim against them – and that is what we will propose that they fall back on that term – especially if the term proposes that they supply you with a replacement. This would then avoid the problem for you that you would have to accept only a proportion of the purchase price. If you're not prepared to sue them – then frankly there's nothing you can do. If you are prepared to issue a small claim then your chances of success are better than 90%. The risk you if you lose is that you lose your claim fee. If you win then you will recover all of your losses. If you want to start a small claim that we will help you all the way but it will assist enormously if you can find the terms and conditions of the warranty. Have a look at their website and you may find references to it there or at the Currys website. Did you pay for this warranty or was it simply included as part of the purchase price? If you paid, then who did you pay? Did you pay Acer or did you pay Currys?  
    • Bankfodder, on your earlier note about whether the consumers have to always be provided with the cancellation rights, yes they have to - this is what the Regulations 2013 imposed compared to 2008 regulations which did not. Even with the 2008 regulations, not providing a cancellation rights is not a route to escape - please see the case precedence below. https://www.walkermorris.co.uk/publications/brief-october-2014/consumers-cancellation-rights-are-unaffected-by-failure-to-give-notice/   I have to disagree with you on your point about Section 6c being applied here - that again is likely to be applicable to tenancy agreement (with the tenant) certainly doesn't apply to the agency agreement. My agreement with the agent is to provide services. 
    • Not trying to be rude, but 90% of my last text was the disclaimar from Acer which could have helped somehow.   I know I have the bad habit of making long paragraphs, but I'm sure Acer at least knows how to space and punctuate correctly.
    • Hi there, The clause that the agent is relying on is as below (Termination Clause) This Agreement will end immediately if the Landlord withdraws their instruction before the Agent finds a Tenant. Once the Agent finds a tenant who meets the criteria agreed which was agreed with the Landlord, the Landlord must pay the Agent the agreed commission.   The criteria wasn't agreed in writing but in general I wanted a trustworthy and a transparent tenant - when I rejected this tenant, I gave it in writing that I considered the tenant not to be transparent and therefore, the tenancy not to be granted.   This is what the agreement states with regards to commission on the contract. The Initial Commission fee is payable on the commencement of the tenancy and charged as a percentage of the total annual rental amount of the agreed term as specified in the tenancy agreement There is no tenancy agreement so there is no annual rent amount.   Sorry I can't upload the Claim form - please let me know if there is any information other than I have supplied already that would like to know. thanks,
    • I'm terribly sorry but this is the second time that I'm asking you to space and punctuate your posts correctly. I appreciate that you are doing things on a telephone – but it doesn't prevent you putting in paragraph returns

hi everyone, I got on the DLR yesterday from blackwall heading for gallions reach. Prior to getting on the dlr, I touched at blackwall but did not wait to confirm if the light went green. Whilst on the train, a ticket inspector asked me to produce my ticket which i did. he made me aware that i had not touched prior to getting on the train. I explained to him that i touched but do not know what went wrong. he issued me with a £40 ticket and said i should try to speak to the authorities involved. he got my full details as i am on a student oystercard. I made him aware that i have never been fined/given a penalty notice which can be confirmed from my card history. I paid the fine of £40 today and also wrote an appeal having the case being looked into as the touch point might be faulty.


I do not want to have a criminal record nor any negative details on my name/record. Can someone please let me know the process as in if i will have a criminal record for a period of time or my name will be on their database as being negative as i have no negative record whatsoever on my name. Can someone please help me out here as i am very worried.

Your first paragraph makes little sense, as soon as you 'touch in' the light will eithjer turn green or red (or very occasionally orange), green means you have correctly swiped and you can continue, there is no 'wait' 9except perhaps a few miliseconds).


You travelled on the DLR without a ticket and were therefore issued a penalty charge, as you have paid this, I dont believe they would take it further and prosecute you and from what you have said your explanation doesnt seem realistic and therefore I doubt you wouldmhave success obtaining a refund of the £40.
