    • Assistance urgently needed now please!   I was telephoned by the mediator today. After he had spoken to the defendant he told me that he (the defendant) is saying that he doesn't recognise me as a customer and doesn't know who I am.   I have it in writing from him that I paid the money but it's true that my son in law's name is on the bill of sale etc. The mediator said I should maybe change the name on the claim. As this will cost me money, he told me to take legal advice. (I don't even know how I'd make this change)   Any advice please?    
    • Just thinking aloud here, but have OP's rights now been affected by OP having declined the seller's offer to let OP return the puppy and give a full refund?   Suppose, just for example, we were talking about a fridge not a puppy. If the seller says I can return the defective fridge and they'll refund me in full the  £1,200 purchase price would I be entitled to say 'no I want to keep this fridge and you to pay me the £500 it will cost to repair'?
    • To go back to the matter of insurance – for the OP to have to rely on their own insurance – would be effectively relieving the seller of any responsibility to make sure that they undertook their trading activity responsibly. This is exactly the same as extended warranties. It is exactly the same as couriers such as Hermes requiring you to insure against their negligence in order for them to pay you out compensation for a lost or damaged parcel. People should try to hold the seller of an item directly responsible whenever possible because it is only that which encourages better and more professional behaviour from traders. If a trader realises that they are going to be held to account then either they will do a better job or they will stop trading. The consumer benefits – and in this case so will the animal. Similarly, exactly the same argument runs in respect of the liability of Vets4Pets who may have fallen down on the job – although this needs to be confirmed by independent assessment. What you see here is a typical scenario where everybody wants to step back from the responsibility and leave the customer on their own and in a lurch. The insurer denies liability. The trader/puppy breeder denies liability. Vets4Pets have also apparently denied liability. They all taken their premium/price/fee and so they are all happy. It is simply the customer who has parted with the money and then is left with a load of trouble because somebody hasn't done their job properly and nobody is prepared to step forward and take the proper responsibility. This is the kind of reason why the Consumer Action Group exists.
    • Thanks lookingforinfo, I was completely unaware of that. That is pretty compelling stuff from the judge and hopefully helps reign these people in more.
    • I don't know if you have seen this thread below-you should have if you want to learn how to know enough to fight off both your current claims against you. But just in case you missed it.... It contains very strong reasons why if you include them you will win in Court should they take it that far.

    • Hi,  
      I was in Sainsbury’s today and did scan and shop.
      I arrived in after a busy day at work and immediately got distracted by the clothes.
       
      I put a few things in my trolley and then did a shop.
      I paid and was about to get into my car when the security guard stopped me and asked me to come back in.
       
      I did and they took me upstairs.
      I was mortified and said I forgot to scan the clothes and a conditioner, 5 items.
      I know its unacceptable but I was distracted and Initially hadn’t really planned to use scan and shop.
       
      No excuse.
      I offered to pay for the goods but the manager said it was too late.
      He looked at the CCTV and because I didn’t try to scan the items he was phoning the police.
       
      The cost of the items was about £40.
      I was crying at this point and told them I was a nurse, just coming from work and I could get struck off.
       
      They rang the police anyway and they came and issued me with a community resolution notice, which goes off my record in a year.
      I feel terrible. I have to declare this to my employer and NMC.
       
      They kept me in a room on my own with 4 staff and have banned me from all stores.
      The police said if I didn’t do the community order I would go to court and they would refer me to the PPS.
       
      I’m so stressed,
      can u appeal this or should I just accept it?
       
      Thanks for reading

Now I'm somewhat confused here. I've just received a letter through my door from a company calling themselves Utility Management Services, stating that intend to apply to court for a warrant of execution to change the meter from contract to prepay due to an outstanding amount, I'm with EDF energy and I set this up when I moved into the property, are they allowed to turn up with a warrant of entry or not? there is no email address on the form only a registered office address, what would my legal stance be if they do turn up with a locksmith to gain entry and start removing the meter?

Have you ever received a bill from EDF?

 

Contact NPower to ask what details they hold, it could be they objected to the change of supply due to a previous occupier's debt. The CEO of NPower's email address is Paul.Massara@rwenpower.com

 

I'd also contact EDF to ask what has happened with your account with them. If NPower aren't aware of a change of tenancy they wil continue to apply for a Warrant because of the previous occupier's debt, hence it being so important to make this contact

I've not received a bill from EDF as yet as i've recently moved into the property hence why I was asking, The only info I have from EDF is my welcome pack and confirmation about my direct debit

If they come don't let them in, they cart force their way in for a civil debt.

In that case, it sounds as if NPower supplied the property when you moved in, they've not been made aware of the change of occupancy and are therefore chasing up the previous occupier's debt.

 

Should be easily resolved by contacting NPower and telling them you moved in.

 

@Filrobbo - they can enter a property using locksmiths if they are granted a Warrant of Entry; this is covered by the Rights of Entry (Gas and Electricity Boards) Act 1954, hence it being really important to get this sorted now

it should be contained in the letter about the Warrant Craigals received, as well as stating about any applicable charges and it should say the outcome will be a disconnection or prepayment meter

But they can stop them at court of getting a warrant of entry

of course, by attending court on the day of the Warrant application, however it is generally a lot less stressful and less inconvenient to liaise with the supplier directly before the warrant application - going to court is never a nice experience!

*UPDATE*

 

Npower have whilst I was out contracted another company called SECUS Ltd to turn up and gain access to my property, they have now removed the meter and installed a pre-payment, I am now taking legal action against Npower and SECUS Ltd for breaking the Section 8 of the European Convention of Human Rights, Secus Ltd claim it's not down to them but Npower, I even had the letter out on show that say's EDF Energy with the contracted date, because SECUS ltd broke into the property and changed the meter are they the ones responsible for replacing the meter back to the debit meter or is this now a matter for the courts?

Hello, Im really interested in the outcome of this case as SECUS pretty much did the same to me around the same period. Did your application to court and claim against Npower succeed?
