    • Hi all,   I just wanted to give you an update and ask for further advice.   The car has been taken to a local garage today and we have been sent a video (just a close up of the engine with the broken pipe) of the suspected issue which they have said is an air flow pipe which has broken. He said it wasn’t broken when the car was sold to us and so he will buy the part & we pay for the labour.   We really feel that he should pay for this entirely, I also don’t want to set a precedent by paying for the labour if things deteriorate further with this car.  He also hasn’t stated how much the labour is, something we will ask when we respond to his message.   How do you think we should proceed?  I don’t want to take the wrong approach now.
    • Hi can I ask about these letters received from this company... I have received information from friends who ignore them  I am worried I just received a letter after parking in Livingston center one week night (31/8). I did not notice any sign stating limited time.  They are looking for £50. I don't want any hassles but does this legally stand in Scotland and also its took 21 days for the letter to arrive (22/9) Any advice would be appreciated  Thanks in advance 
    • Probate isn't cleared funds and I can confirm it's taking much longer than usual.  Even a simple bank account can take over a month and NS&I are taking around three months to release funds to executors.   I've only just paid out on the will of my aunt who died on 2nd March and I held an LPA for her so knew exactly what was where and the financial institutions already knew my identity.
    • I've had a quick look at the Internet and they reckon that even for a simple will it could take nine months to 12 months for everything to be organised and funds to be distributed. So you may be a little bit early. Why don't you contact the executor very gently and ask them how is it going and when did they think it might be finished. Maybe it will help if you express some appreciation for the task that they've taken on – because it can be quite complicated
    • Yes of course you can oblige her to give you the money. I'm not quite sure what cause of action you would need to rely on if you had to go to court. In terms of how much you are entitled to receive if there is not enough to go around everybody, I would have thought that it would be allocated in proportion – but I'm really not sufficiently sure of my ground to say for certain. Maybe somebody else will come along and give more precise advice – and maybe the answer will occur to me through the day

    • 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 i need some advice:

ive had parkinsons for 13 years now and have been on a 3 year renewal on my driving licence.Last july i sent off my renewal as usual and heard nothing but 3 letters over the next 8 months saying they were dealing with and i could continue driving.Then last week i got a letter saying they had revoked my licence on medical grounds.

I rang the dvla and they say it was revoked because of a report they received from my consultant,i asked for a copy and they said i have t write in (ive done this).I also made an appointment to see my consultant who hasnt seen me for ten years!! its allways a nurse specialist i see.

when i turned up for the appointment he wasnt there:-x and i saw one of his minons who couldnt find a copy of his report and tried to fob me off when i demanded a copy.

my parkinsons has never affected my driving and i ha ve 9 years no claims how can the consultant recommend i dont drive when he hasnt seen me for 10 yrs. ive had a look at the dvla medical requirements and as a far as im concerned i meet them.

i live in a very rural area the nearest shop is 6 miles and theres no public transport.without my dl i would have to move house.

i dont know what to do next.

You can appeal, but don't expect them to rush (which government agency does, 10 months to process my wifes ILR visa!!). You will need to refresh your medical evidence. I would recommend one from your specialist, GP and if you can afford it, and independent one.

A neighbour had a similar problem though his was glaucoma being treated effectively. So being honest (it doesn't pay) he declared it. Tested at the local hospital all was fine until last year when the testing went to Boots! Low and behold a letter came to say no licence! Appeal at a cost, submitted in December and in February this year the ungraciously gave him his licence back. Write to your MP these understaffed inefficient Quangos Need a bomb under them (metaphorically you understand).

Yes they are understaffed. They are I'm told running 2-3 months behind on medical appeals. Do go to the web site "they work for you." You can find your MP's contact e-mail there. Give him all your relevant details and don't miss anything! Shout it from the roof tops (Metaphorically speaking)

Yes at what cost? Do the MP route he or she may get results quicker at no cost. Under the freedom of info that info is yours! Damage has been done to you. Can you access a legal eagle free for 30mins sometimes?
