i can not take it back to bright house for repair under its garentee so

 

i went direct to the manufacture hoover just to be told that they cant do anything unless instructed by brighthouse themselves

which wont happen while in in a dispute with them

 

any ideas of what i could do please.

 

many thanks in advance

You are in debt to Bright house,Yes how far behind with payments are you, ? Who instigated the Court Proceeding?

 

As long as your washing machine has not been subjected to damage by yourself,the Guarantee is irrelevant,you are covered under SOGA the sale of goods act and Bright House as the retailer is responsible for the repair,replacement,refund.

 

I am not up to speed on the terms and conditions of purchases through Bright House but I doubt that they have any clause that stops them repairing faulty goods if you owe them money

Ralphy, you say in your first post ...

 

i am a brighthouse customer that has got into a weeks arrears

 

Is that "one week" or more. Why are you in arrears, did you stop paying because of the dispute ?

 

 

On what basis have you taken court action - could you let us know what your Particulars of claim has stated ?

When did you enter into this agreement(s). If prior to around October of this year, then you should simply be able to reclaim the insurance. However, if after, then I think you might be stuck because they changed their agreements to incorporate all the insurances by upping their prices by about 40 - 50% ?

You have three choices, I think -

 

- Leave the w/m broken until the court case is resolved.

- Have it repaired independently and try to recover the cost.

- Let BH take it, and then fight for it's return in working order

 

All have risks and costs. Personally I would stand on my rights as customer and expect BH to arrange the repair.

if they want to break the LAW of the agreement

then I think they'd be rather stupid.

I find this hard to believe after everything i have witnessed and experienced from bright house out of seven goods i have brought from yourselves 3 items have packed up with in months of haveing them and not only that i have found out that i am paying double what there retail value is before your insurance policies then there's the deliverie refund that i have been chaseing for over six months and the loss of earnings for that day when you did not turn up and the payments i made while for months we had not got the goods because of repair.so i truley beleive the only way forward is through the courts and of course there's plenty of tv programes about scams lately
