    • Hi I assume the Loft Conversion with the eaves and crawl space was there when you initially purchased the property. Even in done after purchasing the property and the correct permissions were in place i.e. Local Authority, Land Registry, Freeholder which is Southern Land which would be required as a Leasehold property. The difficulty is if the Loft Conversion was there when you purchased the property and there is no evidence in your documents of the eaves and crawl space due to where the Red Lines stop in the plans or even after purchase it was added this is the reason you are having issues with selling due to those missing Red Lines in the Plans and any other Buyers competent Solicitor would flag this up. I can understand the reasons the Buyer wishes a Deed of Variation probably there Solicitor requesting this to ensure those missing red lines are covered before the Sale as they Flagged this as an issue as Red Lines missing on Plans and want buyer protected. As for the £8000 costs Together and cohort Southern Land are trying to charge have you thought of contacting a few Property Solicitors yourself to get a few quotes. (only mention this because when I research this possible costs can range from £500 - £2000 depending on the Deed of Variation work required and nothing to stop you doing this then approaching Together and cohorts with it) Also ask Together/Southern Land for a breakdown of the £8000 costs for the Deed of Variation. Yup do send both Together and Southern Land a Subject Access Request (SAR) requesting 'ALL DATA' that simple phrase covers whatever format they hold that data in whether it be emails, written, recorded calls etc. They then have 30 Calendar Days to respond and that time limit only starts once they acknowledge receipt of your SAR Request. When you purchased the property some 17yrs ago are the Solicitors that you went through at that time still operating? (I know probably a silly question but if they are nothing to stop you contacting them and asking them about this especially if the Loft Conversion was in place when you purchased the property) Another link that will be useful to you as Leasehold is The Leasehold Advisory Service: Home - The Leasehold Advisory Service WWW.LEASE-ADVICE.ORG Government funded, independent advice for residential leaseholders and park home residents

    • We have finally managed to obtain the transcript of this case.

      The judge's reasoning is very useful and will certainly be helpful in any other cases relating to third-party rights where the customer has contracted with the courier company by using a broker.
      This is generally speaking the problem with using PackLink who are domiciled in Spain and very conveniently out of reach of the British justice system.

      Frankly I don't think that is any accident.

      One of the points that the judge made was that the customers contract with the broker specifically refers to the courier – and it is clear that the courier knows that they are acting for a third party. There is no need to name the third party. They just have to be recognisably part of a class of person – such as a sender or a recipient of the parcel.

      Please note that a recent case against UPS failed on exactly the same issue with the judge held that the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 did not apply.

      We will be getting that transcript very soon. We will look at it and we will understand how the judge made such catastrophic mistakes. It was a very poor judgement.
      We will be recommending that people do include this adverse judgement in their bundle so that when they go to county court the judge will see both sides and see the arguments against this adverse judgement.
      Also, we will be to demonstrate to the judge that we are fair-minded and that we don't mind bringing everything to the attention of the judge even if it is against our own interests.
      This is good ethical practice.

      It would be very nice if the parcel delivery companies – including EVRi – practised this kind of thing as well.

OK guys I need some guidance please...


I have been a Virgin Media National Customer for over 15 years,

I have had the same 5 e mail addresses and I have moved once in that time,

but remained a VM National customer all that time.


When I moved in 2012 I asked if I could transfer to a Cable Customer to get a better broadband speed and the answer was no,

then a chap contacts me last week to say he is coming round to survey my area to see if I can be a cable customer.


He turns up,

confirms I have the infrastructure in my road and offers me a move to Cable service and includes a TV package,

the deal is struck and I sign and


I'm told that the Cable service will be installed on the 5th April and my existing National Service will cease on the 4th April.


I'm having work done on the house so it seems an ideal time for the cable service to be put in

so I drill holes for the cable route and sit back and wait for the time to come.


Saturday I receive a 'sorry to see you go' letter from VM telling me my service will be disconnected from that day

- I check the phone and while I still have dial tone and the internet service is still working I cannot make or receive phone calls.


I get straight onto VM Customer Services and after spending most of Saturday on their 0845 service from my mobile

I'm told a mistake has been made and my service has been ceased early

- I respond that it is still connected but restricted and

I'm told the same thing applies and they cannot get it back on,

I'm told to call and complain on Monday.


I call back today and

after 3 hours (I'm not exaggerating) I eventually get told that my National Service has been ceased wrongly

and I will have to wait to see if the Cable Service can be provided,


when I ask what they mean I'm told that Cable Service may not be available to me

and they cannot reconnect my National Service.


I have spoken, complained and requested escalation to no avail to many people within VM today,

it culminated in me e mailing the CEO Tom Mockridge

which resulted in a person from Customer Services contacting me and telling me the above.


I have lost my National Service with VM and if they cannot provide the Cable Service

(I doubt that they will as my council will not grant wayleave to dig up roads that were only laid last year)

they are just going to wave goodbye to me as a Customer as they say they cannot reconnect my National Service.


As I write this my dial tone is still present and my internet access is working,

as a Telecoms Manager with the NHS I cannot understand how they cannot just reconnect me as a National Customer.


Their Customer Service is appalling,

at one stage I was put through 3 times to a different Customer Service Agent with no information being passed on and i had to explain the same story 3 times over.


The change over has already cost me £25 which I will insist on getting back if they cannot achieve anything,

but more importantly I have lost a service that I have had for a number of years.


The inconvenience in changing the email addresses alone is huge, especially as the e mail address I had was xxxxxxxxxx which is a very rare thing by today's standards.


Has anyone got a senior contact in VM that I could get involved in this to get my National Service reinstated?

Nearest cabinet is about 50 yards from front door, T box is installed in street outside house but has no cable in it. I don't know if any houses in the street have cable, there seems to be a lot of satellite dishes to me.


I tried the website you gave and it said there is cable service for VM available.


My virgin National broadband service just stopped so I'm no only runnning on a PAYG dongle hurridly purchased, fortunately I spent 2 hours this afternoon forwarding my virgin.net email accounts to my g mail account.


I am thorougly pi$$ed off with VM and really feel like telling them to stick their service where the sun doesn't shine, problem then is that I have only got BT to choose from as a National Customer and they want £39 per month for crappy BB and phone only

you should be able to get very cheap BB [like £5PCM

from the sams site

loads of really cheap deals there


now back to cable issue.


you are in a cabled area so vermin will not need any permission to lay cables up paths etc


but unsure on roads
