    • Probably won't have to wait too long for someone to be invoiced by VCS for stopping at a zebra for sure.
    • What date did you enter into the agreement ?   Andy
    • No more letters your Statute barred letter concluded matters and the fact its already been wrote of in your Bankruptcy.   Andy
    • If it is a zebra crossing with belisha beacons etc then it is a borough maintained road. As such and especially if it was a taxi that is even permitted to drop off passengers on red lines you have nothing to worry about. VCS do not control that part of the Airport at all. You only stopped for less that the 10 minute grace period that  VCS must give motorists and no contract can be formed between a motorist and a sign that is prohibitive.I am waiting for those numpties to issue a PCN to someone stopping at the zebra or is one supposed to knock the people over on the crossing  to avoid a ticket.   
    • I very recently received emails from Lantern about a payday loan taken out in Feb/March 2008. The email refered to the fact I had been looking at Bankruptcy options and they referred to our 'recent communication'.   I was declared Bankrupt in July 2008 and this was part of that.   That said, they sent me the email out the blue and after reading the content of the forums here I decided to send them the 'prove it letter'. At this point I only replied via email and did not give my most current address, which has changed since 12 years ago! The email was from the 11th September. I replied on 11th September with the prove it.   They then sent me the credit agreement on the 9th October, some 28 or so days later - I guess they ignored DPA and all that.   I replied same day via email with the statute barred letter. I got an instant replay saying that they hadnt heard back from me and needed me to reply.   I replied again with the statute barred letter.   They have since replied to that email with a request to provide details in order to comply with the DPA - name, address, DOB, email. I have printed the Statute barred letter, included my up to date address and sent it recorded delivery.   Is there anything else I should be doing? SRA request? I have definitely not been in touch with them for 6+ years so its absolutely statute barred. I could send them the details fo the bankruptcy but I get the feeling they will be difficult about that - I cant find my copy of the order so I would probably have to obtain a new one and pay - I'm guessing they would be difficult about just giving the reference and date and court and sending them a letter getting them to get in touch with the receiver, so I think im better with statute barred for now?   Any help or advice greatly appreciated.

Hi all,

new to this forum, have previously managed to just mention the word Sale of Goods Act

in previous stores and successfully had my issues resolved.

 

However, the manager of my local SCS store seemed completely oblivious to the SOGA

and as such is adamant that the issue with my carpet remains the responsibility of the manufacturer.

 

In brief, we had a new carpet & underlay fitted by SCS back in January.

 

In August we noticed the carpet was starting to fold over on itself, ie crease.

 

After phoning the store and a message being passed to the manager the fitter came out,

restretched the carpet fitted a gripper and disappeared.

 

Within a few days the crease was back again,

a call to the store produces an appointment with their surveyor, he comes out,

eventually, and decides we need more gripper.

 

Fitter returns, disagrees with the surveyor, lifts up the carpet and announces that the carpet is delaminating and is faulty.

 

He tales photos and says he'll report to the store manager.

 

A week has passed since fitter took photos and we've heard nothing,

 

Yesterday we popped in to store and spoke to the manager,

on asking him where we're at with our faulty carpet he announces he's still not heard from the manufacturer.

 

When I asked him what it has to do with them he tells me it's company policy,

 

I asked to see this policy and he says that they don't hold one in store and I need to speak to HQ.

 

This brings me on to mention to him the SOGA and the fact that my contract

is with him as the retailer not the manufacturer of the carpet,

thus he is responsible for fixing & making amends not the manufacturer.

 

He keeps repeating about company policy etc and it's then like I'm banging my head against a brick wall.

I leave with the promise he will call me back by 2000hrs Monday PM.

 

What i'm looking for is that,

I am correct, the store is responsible NOT the manufacturer and at the end of the day the carpet is faulty

and after just 6 months or so the carpet is the way it is, ie not for for purpose and of unsatisfactory quality.

 

All I want is nice carpet, the same again will be fine,

nothing outrageous or out of the ordinary but the manager of the store dismissed the SOGA

saying company policy is what it is and completely dismissed I have any rights to anything over SOGA.

 

Help please as I feel this is being made far more awkward then it should be.

 

Cheers,

 

Steve

WELCOME griffin......You are 100% correct SOGA more than covers your situation.Go direct to SCS ,CEO, Google the company and check to see who the CEO is,email him,in most cases this has the required effect

thanks FS, I have just found that name & email.

 

I'll speak to trading standards tomorrow as the manager was completely dismissing the SOGA in favour of company policy,

which having read up is potentially an illegal move on his part.

 

All I want is the carpet sorted.

 

I've informed the Mrs if he calls to tell the manger that we've emailed David Kinght CEO at SCS

and that I've contacted trading standards to see what they have to say.

 

I'm sure he is just following orders and trying to keep the profits up,

 

but this time he's giving the mushroom treatment to the wrong person :-)

SOGA 100% applicable in this case.

Most big stores fail to mention SOGA in their training to staff hoping that most customers will accept the no refund, not our problem response to faulty goods.

And they're successful in thinking that.

The other day I saw a woman in a catalogue store complaining about a pram breaking in two after a month.

Reply was: "more than 28 days have passed, nothing to do with us. You need to contact the manufacturer" And she walked away(!?!?)
