    • There is a caveat. Within the first 6 months the assumption of a fault at time of selling means that it is for the seller to disprove.   This can be through showing, possibly as in the case of engine 'blowing up' in this thread, that due attention by the purchaser has been  paid to such things as the oil and water levels, all other adjustments have been maintained, any due servicing has been carried out, etc.   We have not been given details of make, model,  age, mileage on purchase, miles covered by OP and servicing history. It is for these reasons that I find the above post questionable.   There is actually no doubt that if you buy a vehicle and the engine blows up within three months then it is not of satisfactory quality. Because it has happened within three months and the six-month rule applies and that means that she is entitled to have a repair and if the repair fails then a refund or a replacement at her option
    • Thank you, I will have a think about where we go from here & if I do decide to progress with a claim with an initial letter, if I can pass it through you to check, I would be very grateful.  Thank you so much again for your assistance to date
    • Yes she told me she had a large company install cctv they didn’t install what they said and she took them to court and won , she then had another person fit them and there was a problem with her tv signal threatened him so he just took them out and gave her her money back . I didn’t know this until after I had installed them and she said the tv was playing up last time she had them fitted 🤦🏼‍♂️ ... this is why I’m so sure it’s nothing to do with what I installed she was happy I told her the problem was with her old analogue aerial and I would go in the loft and switch it to the digital one she declined , told her I would install the cctv on her laptop , mobile phone or connect to tv via router she declined all soloutions . There was no problem with the cctv working through her tv no break lines or pixels , just her tv signal  ive been back and forth trying to sort it out 
    • Quick question for my education (and I hope the OP's).   When sending copies of notices and evidence etc to a defendant, should it be sent recorded delivery or is first class with proof of postage sufficient (or even better)?   Can't recorded delivery be refused by the recipient?  And if it is refused, can a defendant legitimately argue that it was never received?   Sorry - don't want to drag this thread off topic but it seems sort of relevant.

    • This is a bit of a lengthy one but I’ll summerise best as possible.
       
      THIS IS HOW THE PHONECALL WENT 
       
      I was contacted by future comms by phone, they stated that they could beat any phone contract I have , (I am a limited company but just myself that needs a business phone and I am the only worker) 
      I told future comms my deal, £110 per month with a phone and a virtual landline, they confirmed that they could beat that, £90 per month with a phone , virtual landline  they also confirmed they would pay Vodafone (previous provider) the termination fee. As I am in business, naturally I was open to making a deal. So we proceeded. 
      Future comms then revealed that the contract would be with PLAN.COM and the airtime would be provided by 02, I instantly told them that this would break the deal as I have poor 02 signal in the house where I live as my partner is on 02 and constantly complaining about bad signal
      the salesman assured me he would send a signal booster box out with the phone so I would have perfect signal.
      so far so good.....
      i then explained this is the only mobile phone I use for business and pleasure, so therefore I didn’t want any disconnection time in the slightest between the switchover from Vodafone to 02
      the salesman then confirmed that the existing phone would only be disconnected once the new phone was switched on.
      so far so good....

Hi we live in a rural area and have done so for nearly 20 years. The local farmer is carrying out some type of construction work and has been moving huge quantities of earth from his farm in giant skip trailers for the last week, there have been dozens of them every day.

 

 

Living in a rural area we are used to a bit of muck and mud on the roads but this has been beyond belief. The raod was thick with about 4 inches of wet and sticky mud and is very dangerous. My car looks like I have been rally driving there is a thick coating of mud on my car - I cant even see the numberplate!

 

 

He has been over the road with some type of rotating sweeper brush but all that has done is move the mud onto the grass verge. He even reversed his tractor up to my hedge to sweep the mud off the road My hedge is plastered with mud. I cried as it looks terrible. I did take some pictures as it was so bad.

 

 

Since then it has now rained and the mud is being washed back on to the road. I dont know what to do as its a small community and I dont want to cause trouble. I know farmers have a hard job but it really is terrible.

If you speak to your local village council,they will approach the farmer on your behalf and you can ask to be kept anonymous.

 

I am glad you have a complete understanding of rural life,as new incomers in general do not

We are having a similar problem near our village however a stranger to the area cannot see the mud until they come around a bend in the road. My blue Jeep looks like a brown Jeep!

Can I say that involving the community council is unfair on the farmer and the council. Theres nothing worse than to find out your being discussed behind your back by your neighbours.

 

The farmer does have a legal responsibility to keep the road clear of excess debris. Perhaps speak to him about it first. If not contact your local police as it is causing a danger to road users.

In many instances people do not know the name of the farmer but the council will have the details which is why it should be reported to the council as soon as possible to avoid anyone having an accident at the spot. Besides it is not your responsible to go chasing the farmer who should know better.

If it is a concern an accident may happen then contact the police and have the testicles to put your name to it. Community councils are made up of gossips and curtain twitchers that have absolutely no powers whatsoever.

It is called a 'chain of command;' know ye of such a thing?

I have had the same problem once but it didn't last long. Try giving the farmer some more time to finish and clean up the road, or talk to him and express your concerns. If nothing works talk to the village council
