    • Welcome to the real world. What year of university are you in? What university? And what are you studying? What is the name of the agent? And what is the name of the landlord? The business of holding deposits should be affected by the Consumer Rights Act 2015 and that means that they should be subject to terms relating to fairness. It seems to me that if you pull out of an agreement to take the property then the agent or landlord should only be entitled to hold on to sufficient funds to cover any administrative losses which they have suffered as a result of your change of decision. In practice many agents will simply take the opportunity to cream off a bit of extra profit. I suppose you just paid the money over without any kind of written agreement or recording or any evidence. Certainly, if you paid over a holding deposit on the basis of a particular contractual promise – that there would be a break clause and then subsequently there was no break clause then it would be a simple matter to argue that it was the agent of the landlord who had gone into the breach of contract in which case you would be entitled to recover all of your money. However do you have evidence of this? Similarly, if you pay the holding deposit and were only told afterwards that it was not refundable then it is arguable – although not cut and dried – that they had introduced a new term into an existing contract and so once again, you would be entitled to recover all of your money. However, once again – do you have any evidence of this? It will be interesting to know whether the agent is acting of their own initiative here or whether they are really exercising the will of the landlord. Please address the questions which I've put above
    • The house was sold in 2015. What’s Ll/BB. Can any one just say what I need to do. Or what I can do. Are Lowell in there rights to claim and therefore I’m liable for paying back the debt. Even though they can’t prove a contract to me in my name. Many thanks 
    • Hi GrievingMum   I fully understand and sympathise with your medical conditions.   The 3 screenshots/images in post#21 I have removed as I have converted those into one PDF which is now showing in that post.   CAG prefers PDFs rather than multiple screenshots/images but as I said I appreciate your medical condition so I have converted those screenshots/images into one PDF and removed the screenshots/images and left the PDF in your post.    CAG also prefers that all our caggers remain Anonymous on CAG, could I just suggest that when your have edited your document to just leave it for a while then go back to it and recheck that you have removed all info to keep you anonymous before uploading to CAG.
    • The letter send to contact them. Maybe if they wanted people to ring them they should put telephone? I was in India at the time so not really convenient to call them (I can prove this to them if it became an issue)

Hi, I'm hoping that someone can help me here.

 

I have just been sorting through my Direct Debits and have realised that I have been paying a DD monthly to Dom and Gen for 4 years

and I actually have no idea what for.

 

I realise that I must have agreed to some kind of warranty cover with them initially,

but I also know that I have no warranties on any of my appliances that are currently active so I have no need for this cover.

 

I am utterly confused and crestfallen because I am absolutely meticulous about keeping records of all correspondence on these things,

and have folders full of this type of info

but I have no letter at all from Dom and Gen that suggest that the cover is ongoing

or that an automatic renewal of the cover will be happening.

 

In addition to this, the cover started at £6.34 per month in March 2009 and has increased in amount every year since then, they are now taking £9.30 from me!

 

I have now cancelled the DD with my bank, but I really can't understand how it is OK for this to have happened.

 

I am usually so careful with these things,

but I tend to rely on correspondence that I get about these things to trigger my action,

and I haven't received any.

 

I read elsewhere on this site that companies MUST inform you of any change in the amount that your direct debit is,

and this has definitely NOT happened, as it would have alerted me to the fact that the DD was active for no reason that I was aware of.

 

I am really upset and feel badly taken advantage of.

 

I know I should have noticed the DD was there, but I have a large number of DDs set up for various reasons

and I must have just stopped questioning it because it's a relatively small amount and has been taken for so long.

 

I'm really kicking myself, but surely there should have been some contact or correspondence from them?

 

I'm going to write a letter to my bank and to D&G now, but any advice or support would be appreciated greatly.

 

Thanks!

First thing would be to contact D&G and ask them for the information relating to this insurance. I have my washing machine covered with them and the amount taken has never increased, but i will now keep an eye on that. I dont remember if i set it up over the phone but im am 100% sure they did send paper work out relating to the insurance.

Not even sure as to what section 32 is. It was just a thought after 4 years that was all

Thanks folks. I've contacted D&G and I'll phone my bank asap too. There has definitely been no correspondence each month, nor was there contact each year that the value went up. I'll let you know how it goes!

Hi, Ive just become aware that a similar situation has developed with a policy that i took out on a camera i bought at jessops, with 2 year cover. I never recieved the renewal notice and by chance saw the regualr amount they had been taking out for 3 years since it experied. I have phoned them, and they state their system says they sent out the letter each year, and as i didnt reply kept the policy live. I didnt recieve the letter. On friday their customer services team said they would refund the last year, and then inquire about escalting the complaint. Today they called and said they can only give me a letter of apology, and no refund and keep sayingh the same thing 'our system says we sent the letter', and i kept saying i havent recieved them to be able to make an informed choice of whether i want to continue, which i didnt, i had it insured by CIS insurance instead. I feel this is outrageous...if i had not of noticed i could have been paying for the years and years to come, no other insurance company does this. Is this legal, and why is it not written in big letters when you take out the policy. I shoudl have been informed at the point of selling.

 

I used to work at the financial services authority and this feel wrong to me . Can anyone provide help or advice ?

Although this is a similar thread to the one originally posted you really should start your own thread as the advice on two within one thread could cause confusion...
