    • Thanks for letting us know about this. I'm afraid that this website is mainly bad news about companies so it's very refreshing and very decent for someone to come along and to give praise where praise is due. How about a link to their website?
    • Having a little additional think about this, I think that your interests are best protected in the following way: You inform the seller that you are obtaining the quotes which I have referred to above. Having received the quotes, you then inform them that you are proposing to have the work carried out at XXX garage and that you will expect that the seller will reimburse you for the costs and associated expenses. You can tell them though that you understand that they may want to control the work being done to the car and so you are willing to allow them to do it but as the fault has manifested itself at this point and that it is clear that the problem is their responsibility, if they wish to carry the work out themselves then they will have to organise the collection vehicle and the delivery of it to you once the work is completed. Of course this will be very expensive for them and they will either fail to respond or they will refuse. Whatever their reaction, you would then go on to say that as they have failed to respond/declined the invitation to carry out the repairs themselves, that you are now going to your preferred garage – one of the two quotations which you have supplied – and you will have the vehicle repaired there. You are giving them an opportunity to comment. I think that if you use this approach, then you will be able to demonstrate very clearly that they had a choice and therefore they will be unable to disassociate themselves from the repairs which are eventually carried out at your chosen repairer. Even though this exchange of correspondence may mean that it will take a week or so longer to have your repairs carried out, I think you should do this in order to protect yourself in the best way possible
    • Please name the dealer   I would start off by sending them a letter of rejection seeing as you are within the 30 days. This doesn't mean that you have to reject it but it reserves your position. Secondly, on the basis of what you say, I don't think that you need necessary to find the cheapest place. You should be looking at the best quality that you can find. I think the best thing to do would be to get to competing quotations for the work you propose to have carried out – and not necessarily at the cheapest place, but a couple of proper reputable garages – authorised for that kind of vehicle. Inform the dealer as to what you are doing and providing with copies of the estimates for the work before you put it in hand. Give them five days to object or to make other comments. Make it clear to them that once the work is carried out that you will be looking to them to reimburse you. Of course you are opening a can of worms here because if you get some further problems – more serious – you may find that the dealer is starting to say that because you have carried out your own work so your own repairer on the car, they cannot now say that any defects were inherent in the purchase – and that they may have been introduced by 1/3 party repairer. I'm afraid that you have certainly fallen into a trap of buying a car a long distance away from where you live. We find that people often tend to do that because they think the car they have found is the only one in the world for them. They forget to factor in the difficulties that they will be if there are defects – particularly if the car stopped altogether – the cost of transportation to the dealer, the cost of having to travel up and down the country to collect the car – and of course these difficulties could emerge several times through the initial years of your ownership of the vehicle if you are relying on your statutory rights and expect the dealer to meet those obligations. Furthermore, if you have to bring a court action against them you are now dealing with multijurisdictional claims – suing out of Scotland against the defendant in England and that adds to the complications. It's too late for you to do anything about this – unless you actually decide to reject the vehicle – but at the very least, other people who come across this thread may get some benefit from these comments. I think it's important for you to get the best quality repair you can and to make sure that the dealer is aware of what you are doing so that if later on they try to deny responsibility for further defects, that you will be able to show that they were fully appraised of what you are doing and they will have less room to manoeuvre themselves out of their statutory obligations. I'm afraid that purchasing a car from one dealer and then having it repaired by another service provider, brings into the same kinds of difficulties that somebody who purchases a central heating boiler from one supplier and then has it installed by a different supplier find themselves in. When things go wrong, the seller blames the installer. The installer blames the seller – and you, the customer, are piggy in the middle. Not a good place to be. I notice that you are doing things on the telephone. Big Fail! Read our customer services guide. In your situation you should be extremely careful to make sure that you have got a record of everything and a full paper trail
    • What information do DVLA need for a provisional licence ?   Think the ID issue needs to be looked at a bit more. Surely you have birth certificate, school information, Doctors records. School and Doctors should provide a letter to help with ID.                
    • Amex as with any creditor must help you the FOS should go with you and make them remove all interest charged from the very 1st time of asking for help. the FCA regulations actually almost dictate it, they most certainly clearly state that if the are FCA registered they must help.   it's very telling they have no marked your credit file....almost as if they know they are wrong. it's also telling that an irresponsible lending complaint might well be in order hear too, they can just keep upping the credit limit without checking you can pay. and ofcourse covid plays its part here and they've already admitted as they allowed payments holidays until october in line with the rest of the industry and they should be continuing that. you problem is you keep using the phone, no paperwork no record of things discussed. i'd get an SAR off to them. and get the comms/account log and all the statements from day one and go nail them.

    • Hi @BankFodder
      Sorry for only updating you now, but after your guidance with submitting the claim it was pretty straight forward and I didn't want to unnecessarily waste your time. Especially with this guide you wrote here, so many thanks for that
      So I issued the claim on day 15 and they requested more time to respond.
      They took until the last day to respond and denied the claim, unsurprisingly saying my contract was with Packlink and not with them.
       
      I opted for mediation, and it played out very similarly to other people's experiences.
       
      In the first call I outlined my case, and I referred to the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 as the reason to why I do in fact have a contract with them. 
       
      In the second call the mediator came back with an offer of the full amount of the phone and postage £146.93, but not the court costs. I said I was not willing to accept this and the mediator came across as a bit irritated that I would not accept this and said I should be flexible. I insisted that the law was on my side and I was willing to take them to court. The mediator went back to Hermes with what I said.
       
      In the third call the mediator said that they would offer the full amount. However, he said that Hermes still thought that I should have taken the case against Packlink instead, and that they would try to recover the court costs themselves from Packlink.
       
      To be fair to them, if Packlink wasn't based in Spain I would've made the claim against them instead. But since they are overseas and the law lets me take action against Hermes directly, it's the best way of trying to recover the money.
       
      So this is a great win. Thank you so much for your help and all of the resources available on this site. It has helped me so much especially as someone who does not know anything about making money claims.
       
      Many thanks, stay safe and have a good Christmas!

I can see a similar question on here but don't want to gatecrash the askers thread & my circs are slightly different maybe. I'm sure I have asked on here before, but no joy.

Son is in 2nd & final year of 6th form, he will be 18 in March next year, & leaves 6th form in May.

He's hoping to do an apprentiship, with an IT firm from May, 100 pounds per week.

I currently work 30+ hours a week self employed, & claim working tax credits, housing benefit etc.

Have 2 teens, daughter is 16 in January & at school another 2 years.

When will CSA payments stop? Relations with the kids dad is cool, but he literally is counting down the days to when his CSA goes down lol (he pays 240 per month for them both which comes straight out his wages on a DOE as he was bad at paying when I was on IS yrs back & I didn't receive it anyway)

Thanks x

No neither was my ex mine went from 231 to 175 so not too bad although i still had to support my daughter through the final months at college so why do they not have to ????

 

Baffles me, do they suddenly not need to eat anymore at a certain age? Not sure about that! lol

If the ex didn't live so far away I would let my son move in with him, that would please him, not!

Um, my ex doesn't pay for school trips, trainers etc, so I don't have it both ways, what's your point? Not seeing a relevance to my question up there in your post? ^

So once they turn 18 (even if they're not earning) they shouldn't be able to eat anymore?

Whats PWC ans since when do you stop being a parent once your child reaches 18 my ex pays £175 a month football and school dinners cost more thsn half of that school trip £375 never mind clothes food home etc meanwhile he pays less.because his new wife has a child yet her ex pays for him how does this work then he has a new car holidays etc i would sooner go without though to be honest because when i decided to be a parent i realised you have to be selfless to give your children the best you possibly can shame some parents dont feel the same!!!!

No, don't apologise, it still doesn't make any sense. I don't get why I 'can't have it both ways' what have I suggested having both ways?

I'm wondering when CSA stops. And mentioned the fact that if the 18 yr old takes a training job, they get 100 a week, which in my sons case a fair bit will go on train fares. Just curious to know why the PWC suddenly ends up with the full cost for supporting the 18 yr old through training. Food electric water rent (it's not only me needing use of all those supplies)

I don't come on this section much but I get the feeling it has a fair few disgruntled dads that would rather the CSA didn't exist, so they could just shirk their responsibilities without someone saying no way pal?lol

....Seeing as we're obviously ok to jump to conclusions on my thread.

Wow,,I bet all the MEN that are bringing up their children themselves are right pleased with you.......ANYONE male or female who shirks their resposibilty as a parent doesn't deserve sympathy....and if it wasn't for the 'shirkers' there would be no need for CSA!!

Well said lillibelle when 2 people have a child together both should be equally responsible. I have always done my utmost to provide for my children why should the absent parent be allowed to do as they please they should be pleased their children have such caring mothers/fathers. I sense in the future lots of lonely people who realise far too late what damage they have done. Anyway must go to work son needs new shoes feeding school trip a taxi service etc etc hope all you caring parents have a nice day

lol taxi service, yes. I literally only run a car for the school trips, son is hearing impaired & the school he needs to be at is 5 miles away, & 2 bus trips there & back sometimes twice a day (as his hours in 6th form are all over the place) would probably be more than the petrol. And I also have a daughter there too doing regular hours, petrol bill is at least 120 a month. Maintenance I get is 240, I don't begrudge the ex that, I have never thought his live in partner that works full time too should have to pay towards his children, & apparently they don't these days.

But to be accused of wanting it both ways is bang out of order.I literally just wondered what age it stops in relation to what they end up doing.

Maybe i'll ring CSA lol

My ex played the game too,,paid me £20 a week,,(kid ate that much in a day!!)..I worked my backside off to make sure my son had everything I could give him,,now at 24,he doesn't bother much with his Dad,he has seen through him with no help from me..and thats his Dads loss,,cos my son is a lovely lad,works hard,nice g/f..because I laid down and paid up!!

 

Any parent who puts a bit of money above being a good person deserves to be dumped when the child grows up!!

Definitely. There are also the men that do pay for them but don't have anything to do with them, my brothers dad always paid maintenance, no problem, yet saw him once a year if he was lucky. Brother tried having a relationship once he was an adult, but it didn't work out & he doesn't see him at all now.

I get on fine with my twos dad, he comes here every other weekend to see them 7 we get on fine. I wouldn't like to rubbish him at all, but they did have to take it out his wages in the end, I even let him off 500 pounds a couple of years ago, I had to give CSA permission to not take that off him, which apparently CSA say I can ask him for at any point, but have I? No.

So I don't think I am being unreasonable. I'm just worrying what's gonna happen when son leaves 6th form, & if he does manage to get this apprenticeship, because I still need to run a car for my daughter to get to school, yet my income is going to go down 400 pounds a month what with working tax credits going down, housing benefit, child benefit, maintenance etc. But son will still need to be fed? lol

Exactly !! I'm sure his Dad would want him to get on with life,,he just needs to see reason,,your son still needs feeding,supporting and why should all of you struggle? Hopefully he will see your point of view,,(just massage his ego when the subject comes up by making him think it's his idea not to reduce payments) lol Good luck x

  • 3 weeks later...

CSA is paid to the maximum age of 19 depending on the childs circumstances. You can still claim for a child when the child is in non advanced education but once a child goes to advanced education csa will stop. Csa will also stop if the child leaves education and doesn't do anything or starts working. However a child can work part-time or throught the summer holidays and csa can still be claimed.

 

Non advanced courses is like you school and nvq, svq etc and advanced is hnd, diplomas etc
