    • I called the business centre that M&F were located at and they advised me to call BCWM, which I did.   A lady spoke to me and said she didn't have any information to hand so I'd have to email them my request. She asked me to provide as much info as possible including my full info so being vague might not be an option.   What do you think of me putting the following:   Dear XXX   It was lovely talking to you earlier. As discussed, my query is in relation to the following piece of land owned by M & F Finance (Ireland) Ltd, which I believe you manage:   Portwood Court, Great Portwood Street, Stockport, SK1 2ED (Title Number : MAN24187)   I have a possible impending legal matter that I'm investigating and therefore need to know who signed up Civil Enforcement Ltd (CEL) to manage the car park and whether CEL currently has legal permission to enter into contracts on your behalf.   Any information you can provide would be extremely appreciated.   Do you think this is okay? Should I just sign the email with my name but omit my address?
    • Hi there,   I just wanted to seek some advice as I've been sent a "Parking Charge Notice" for temporarily stopping outside the arrivals terminal at Southend Airport to pick up my disabled father, and now they want £60 off of me. I've appealed, which, as I expected, did nothing.  Should I just let the case go to court, as i feel I have a good defense. My Father is disabled due to the fact that he suffers from Peripheral Arterial Disease and Spinal Stenosis and can only walk short distances before his legs begin to seize up and turn to lead. This is why I had to temporarily stop for a short period outside the terminal. It was a cold, dark evening, pouring with rain, I didn't see any signs. My only concern was getting my Mother and Disabled Father out of the cold weather, into the car and off home.'   Any help appreciated, Thanks          
    • On the matter of the shed, I would move to have the lot replaced immediately. Inventory the contents of the shed, take photographs of their condition and then do what you can to deliver the contents of the shed to your parents. If you continue to keep their property – or at least property to which they are asserting title – on your land then this can only help them and be an encumbrance to you. Ideally you would instruct them to come along and collect it – but the easiest thing to do is simply to put it all into the back of the car or van or something and then to deliver it to your parents. Warn them that it is going to arrive and make sure it all arrives in good condition at a time when you know they are going to be in. Once it is taken to their property, photograph it again and inventory it again so that there are no queries later on. It will be a good idea if you have somebody with you to witness what goes on. If your parents have keys to anything else on your property such as the front door or a back garden door in order to access the shed, you should change those locks immediately and write your parents and tell them that the locks are now been changed, that their own keys will no longer fit and that they are not authorised to enter onto your property in any circumstances. However, I suggest that you deal with the contents of the shed first so that there are no suggestions that you are trying to hang on to some property which I suppose is of no interest to you

So long story short, I had two bad accidents in a day. I first dropped my laptop in the kitchen and the screen ended up breaking. Then while backing up my data my little brother spilled juice over it and the hard drive ended up failing then after that it wouldn't even turn on :/

 

I sent it in for repair and they gave it back to me today with a letter simply saying they consider the damage to not be covered by our Service Agreement.

 

I'm suppose to write back to the Claims Investigation Department. What say do I have in this? Should I get someone to inspect my laptop so they can also back me up to prove it was an accident? Because I assume they don't believe it was an accident which is why they didn't repair it.

 

I've written about 2 pages so far explaining what happened, I'm sure if I get a technician to check out the laptop it would help but I don't know how much that would cost or where to find one.

 

Thanks,

Hi Userage,

 

Thanks for taking the time to post. (I did not get an inbox message from you?)

 

The 'WEH' agreement that you have in place will have been passed like you said to the repair investigations team. Gary Perryment will have been passed the details which explains our team believe that the damage that has been caused is not consistent with your account of the events.

 

As it stands on situations like this I am unable to do or say anything that will change the outcome of the events by Mr Perryments team as they deal with these personally. However, I can offer you all the advice that you need to help get this resolved.

 

The documents will have a return address where you should write to, to give further evidence/explain how the damage came around. Be as clear and thorough as possible as this will all help. If you don't have the address I can provide it for you.

 

Should you need anything else just post on here and I will come back to you or email me at letusknow@knowhow.com

 

All the best,

 

Paul

I would be tempted to remove the hard drive, get an external housing, and back your folders up that way.


If in doubt, contact a qualified insured legal professional (or my wife... she knows EVERYTHING)

 

Or send a cheque or postal order payable to Reclaim the Right Ltd.

Thanks for the reply Paul

 

I don't care much about the data, I backed up my important files. I just didn't back up a few programs and games. Quite worried they won't overturn their judgement, I rely on that laptop quite a lot :(

 

Just to be sure, the address to get in touch with Gary Perryment is;

 

Dixons House

Marylands Avennue

Hemel Hempstead

Herts

HP2 7TG

 

Correct?

 

I have explained everything that happened in the best detail I can in the letter. Is there anything I can add that would help the situation? My laptop is still with PC World at the moment as my Dad refused to collect it because it was not repaired.

 

What are the chances of them overturning their decision? Does it happen often? Seems a lot of people aren't too happy with this Insurance.

Hi Usearage,

 

Thanks for getting back to us.

 

I don't have any specifics for how often decisions get overturned, but I can confirm that what you put does go a long way towards the decision being confirmed.

 

Even if it takes you 10 pages just be as clear and as thorough as possible, make sure no stone is left unturned. That is the best piece of advice I can offer.

 

The address above is correct for just also add 'Claims Investigations' followed by Gary Perryment otherwise your mail will be routed to the Sheffield contact Centre

 

Like I say, if you need anything else give me a shout I'm more than happy to offer any advice.

 

All the best,

 

Paul

Thanks for the reply once again, my Dad sent the letter because he assumed it was finished :'|.. Is it rude if I send the final copy and tell them to disregard the first one? :/

 

Also do you know who the underwriter of the policy is? My Dad filled a complaint but the person wants to know who underwrites the insurance. I thought it was DSG retail, but apparently its not.

Hi Userage,

 

The policy thatyou have in place is a support agreement, we do not sell insurance for products. The support agreement is not underwritten as it's not regulated by the FSA. The policy's are in place by Dixons Retail.

 

If you wish to send another letter to the claims investigations team you are more than welcome to do that.

 

Should you have a complaint about the support agreement that you have you would need to forward that to.

Hi Userage,

 

A reply is usually between 14 - 28 days, when the team pick up a contested letter they will go back over the agreement details and the report to confirm the findings to be correct.

 

Hope this helps

Hi Paul,

 

Gary wrote back to me and he refused my claim. He mentioned some things in the letter. He mentioned my SD card adapter inside the laptop which was broken, this was broken for a while and I always leave it in my laptop, I did not bother to write about it in the letter because I felt it was irrelevant. He says there was evidence of spillage on the keyboard and screen. The keyboard, well yes that's where my brother spilled the drink over, as for the screen I can only assume I didn't wipe it properly and when I closed the lid some of the residue of the liquid got stuck on the screen.

 

I mean, what am I suppose to do? :( Should I write back? Because the SD card thing is really nothing to be used against me in this claim, it did not break at the time of these incidents. I can't recall any major spillage on the screen, so how am I suppose to explain it to him? The incident happened two weeks ago I can barely even remember it now. He also said liquid got in from the bottom, I did notice some liquid on the bottom but I'm sure I wiped it, I did turn the laptop upside down to wipe it but I'm sure no liquid leaked in, unless maybe when I wiped it some got pushed in? :(

 

Should I just try explain what he mentioned best I can and write back? Will he consider re looking at it? :/

 

Edit:

Also a free-post envelope was enclosed but the address listed on it is different to the one I sent it off to

 

The address on this is;

 

Coverplan Admin Department

P.O. Box 53

HP2 7XW

 

Should I use the envelope or just mail back to the original address I used?

Hi Userage,

 

Sorry to hear that your claim has been rejected. As I stated in one of my previous posts, "Even if it takes you 10 pages just be as clear and as thorough as possible, make sure no stone is left unturned. That is the best piece of advice I can offer." So even if the SD card thing to you may not be an issue that could be why the repair has been rejected, the same goes for the spillage on the bottom of the unit. If you don't document these things they will get picked up on.

 

If you use the return address that he provided it will go straight through to Gary or his team and they will be able to speak to you further.

 

All the best,

 

Paul

Why keep mucking about with currys? send them a LBA ( letter before actionlink3.gif ) give them 7 days to respond, if they don't then issue a Money Claim Online (MCOL). There is a fee for this, but you can claim this back as your costs in the claim.

Companys like Currys sell these insurance policys, although they will say they are inhou sesupport agreement, still the same thing! They do everything they can to get out of paying!

Time to start fighting BACK!

Thats exactly what I am doing. I gave them a run down of the claim and where I got the value from. I asked for any evidence they have on me towards the claim, I saw in another post on here that the Data Protection Act covers that, so it would be good to see exactly what their 'technician' thinks. I gave them 17 days to reply, that being 14 days + time required for my letter to be received.

 

I don't know if I can, but maybe someone here can shed some light. Am I able to claim for the rest of the agreement? Our agreement is for 5 years but it hasn't even been 3 years. Can I claim money back for the remaining time? I certainly don't intend to ever come back, and once I get a replacement/the claim money I will be getting real insurance.

 

I am going to claim the cost of an equivalent spec laptop, this is what I should be doing right? Or should I have told them/should I claim for the full price of my laptop?

 

Thanks for all the replies once agan

Yeah thats what I went with. I couldn't find the exact spec but I got one that was slightly above and one that was slightly below and just averaged them. Using benchmark scores obviously.

I mentioned this in the letter actually.

 

If Mr. Perryment actually decides to replace my laptop, I'm still able to claim for the agreement aren't I? Because it really is useless. If I knew it was basically an extended warranty I would have never bought it, the manager put us under the impression it was a full insurance.
