    • Thank you Bank Fodder for your reply. Il certainly do that
    • Googled it and Family Money Savers purchased the assets of Key Financial Claims, there’s also threads confirming that they have acted as agents of Key. A firm going into liquidation does not nullify a contract so whether or not you owe the money will depend on when the offer of compensation was made. I would call them in the first instance to question it, all CMCs have to record all calls now, and you can make the subject access request over the phone. The fact that it’s taken 6 and a half years doesn’t make the contract invalid. 
    • the business and assets of Key Financial Claims were bought out of administration on a going-concern basis on 10 December 2015 by connected company Family Money Savers (FMS) for an initial payment of £30,000.   addition, the company is due to receive 10 per cent of FMS' revenues from Key Financial Claims' pipeline and 25 per cent of FMS' own revenues of which the company previously received 15 per cent. ………..     pers i'd ignore them.  
    • Hi, I currently have a Court case going on against Hartley Wintney Motors whereby I am trying to reject a car under the 30-day thing, as the car broke down 29 days after I purchased it. I was notified by the Court that the Judge had ordered for it to be referred to the Motor Ombudsman for dispute resolution. TMO advised that this could take up to 6 months as they are currently dealing with cases older than mine. Yesterday, through the Money Claims portal, I had notification that HWM had made an offer. I am trying to claim back £3,100. That's the cost of the car at £2,500 + the cost of a warranty. So there offer is:  "We can pay £2500 on 23 October. You must deliver the vehicle with all keys, logbook by 23 September. If you are not agreeable, business is closing soon, and any judgement awarded in the small claims court is also unenforceable. You will then need to dispose the vehicle."   So, firstly, why should I have to return the car? It doesn't go. I would have to pay for a truck to get it back to them. If the business is closing why do they want the car? Why would I give them the car a whole month before they pay me? They could scrap the car and there goes my evidence. Is the business closing? Their website still has over 60 cars for sale. Are they just trying to force me to take their reduced offer?  I have checked on Companies House and in June they filed a notice for compulsory strike off. One week later the strike off action had been discontinued. I've also contacted TMO to try and ascertain if this offer is in conjunction with them, as I haven't received any communication from them advising the same. If my matter is still waiting to be dealt with by TMO, why would HWM just randomly make an offer, when from the beginning they have been adamant that I am in the wrong?   I would very much appreciate any thoughts from people.   Thank you.

Last week I visited and then bought a dog on Gumtree which was advertised as "recently vet checked and in excellent health". However, when I got him home I noticed that he kept shaking his head and upon looking saw that he had an extremely serious ear infection....his poor ear was a complete mess Next day I took him to my own vet who couldn't even inspect it properly because it was so sore but started him on antibiotics. I tried to get hold of previous owner but she was not returning my calls or texts. i tracked down her vet who confimred she has taken him in 10 days previous for his ear problem and again it was so sore it could not be properly inspected. they started him on antibiotics and was due to take him back 3 days later but never did ...that is obviously when she put him up for sale. As she advertised him as recently vet checked and in "excellent health" do I have a case against her of false advertising and fraud? thanks you

Even if you got judgement against her you've no guarantee of getting any money. How did you track down her vet and persuade them to give you the information? On one hand I'm glad you could but on the other I'm appalled at them discussing another client with you.

They did not give me information about their client, they gave me medical information about the dog. My own vet gave me his chip number and I emailed a number of the vets in the area I bought him, explained that I needed his medical history and fortunately one of them was the right vet and they called me back. Money here is now really irrelevant....I want to know if I can take action for posting an advertisement that basically told lies and influenced me as towhether or not I bought the dog.

In terms of the seller misrepresenting the condition of the 'goods' then money is the only thing you can sue for. It's never irrelevant. I'm not sure there's any other action you could take. I'm not even sure Trading Standards would be interested. Misrepresentation is relevant under SoGA for private sales but I doubt they'd get involved on a one off sale of a dog.

Thank you for your response....didn't word my response correctly. I would like compensation, if only to cover the vet fees, just wasn't sure how you would go about pursuing someone if the "goods" were bought via an advert rather than through a shop. Regards

Do take into account that you may not get your money even if you get judgement. Animals are regarded as property for legal purposes so I don't know if an easily apparent minor fault would be a clear cut case. I know it isn't minor to you but a serious deliberate misrepresentation would be something like a heart defect which they knew about and then had advertised the dog as healthy. If the vet had said something like apart from the ear the dog is in robust health and they'd given a course of the prescribed antibiotics so assumed it was sorted then the ad doesn't seem so awful.

 

If the seller is avoiding your calls then it's unlikely to be totally innocent I know and I do understand how angry you must be but this is what you'd be up against. They have the evidence of their own vet to prove it had been recently vet checked and treated. That vet will not provide anything for you. It was the owner who was the client, not the dog. They should not have discussed the details with you unless they had the permission of their client.
