    • Letter from court is asking that I submit to the court and the other party no later than 14 days ahead of the hearing  a "witness statement?" I assume this will give more detail than the original defence I filed?   It states I must:   Start with name of the case and claim number Full name and adress of witness Set out witness evidence clearly in numbered paragraphs on numbered pages End with this paragraph "I beleive that the facts stated in this witness statement are true." be signed by the witness and dated    
    • Thank you. You shouldn't be claiming for the return of half the money. If you are claiming on the basis that this is an unenforceable penalty or an unenforceable unfair term, then the entire term of the contract. The void and unenforceable and there is no power in the courts to make an apportionment.  Therefore your claim must be for the entire £450. Personally I wouldn't allow them to get away with any unfairness. I'm extremely dubious about the other term which apparently allows them to take ownership of the dog if it is not collected within 14 days. They are only entitled to recover any administrative expenses caused by any breach – assuming that the breach is yours. Have you asked them to account for the £450 and to explain why this might amount to their administrative expenses? Of course it can't possibly do because as that is the full cost of keeping the dog then there must be a margin included in the £450 which represents their profit – otherwise there would be no point in them running the business. Of course, if the breach is theirs then they would have to return the £450 to you plus any other losses that they had caused you. For instance, if your daughter had been put to any loss which you had to reimburse her for then it might be reasonable for you to claim that as well. Let us know. Have you send them a letter of claim yet? If you want to be super-nice then you might offer them a small sum by way of administrative expenses as an alternative to forcing you into legal action. I would suggest no more than 70 quid – but I think first of all I would invite them to account for the £450 and explain why they say it equals their administrative expenses. I don't expect that you will get any reasonable answer and they will simply say that it is in their terms and conditions – but at least you will have something in writing from yourself – and then from them to show firstly that you have tried to be reasonable about your approaches to them and secondly that they are merely relying on terms and conditions and it has nothing to do with administrative losses  
    • Hi All,   I have recently received the  Letter Before Claim from Gladstones Solicitors,   I have previously appealled original PCN with One Parking Solution and  POPLA to no avail, despite my vehicle being recorded on the site 1-2 minute to turn around there and 3 minutes stopped at the entrance (not parked) so 5 minutes in total having pulled off the public highway momentarily. Not to park as advised to this rather nefarious company!   Would welcome the advice on what to do next please, Thanks in advance,   RATPCN  
    • I would suggest that you call UC and request mandatory reconsideration (MR) of the decision to pay the LCWRA arrears to DWP debt management towards this disputed Housing Benefit debt.   They cannot refuse the MR request.   Reasons for MR.   1) Housing Benefit debt is disputed and subject to Court Tribunal process.    2) The DWP decision makers letter to award the LCWRA does not mention any decision to pay arrears towards debts. UC are therefore making a decision, without informing of any legal rights they might have to act in this way.    When you make the MR request, ask to submit further evidence within the 30 days allowed. Then send copies of any dispute about the debt.   You could also contact the Council to see if they are happy for health related award money from DWP being paid to them. Send a complaint to Council that you are not happy with this.

October 2012 we bought a Logik brand LED TV for £199.99

All was fine until

 

 

April2014 when the start up failed.

NORMALLY there's a red light which comes on and you press either the button on the TV

or remote to switch on.

The light goes blue and the TV comes on.

 

Now it just stays red and no start up happens.

 

We went to Currys where we bought it and they said they could send it off to their repair centre

and have it checked but it would cost us £95 which would be refundable if they find a fault.

 

 

They also said if we wanted, we could have it checked by an independent engineer

and get back to them.

 

Now we thought 18 months is NOT an acceptable time for a TV to last

so I emailed their customer services who just said the same.

 

I got some advice from the citizens advice who have a template letter

which refers to the Sale of Goods Act.

 

I sent this to Currys head office (registered post) and

 

 

they have taken two weeks to call us with the same information,

plus claiming they do it everyday and people easily have their £95 back.

Really, EVERYDAY? Is that really a selling point?

 

We have since purchased a Sony TV (went halves on a special offer in Tesco),

so we don't have £95 to spend on a repair.

 

We could get a quote and report from an independent engineer but it's more money,

which we don't have.

 

I still have the Logik TV, well packaged and tucked in a cupboard.

 

What I need to know is, is there any point in getting an independent repair?

 

Has anyone done this themselves and been successful in receiving either a refund

or exchange from Currys?

In the first instance you would need to give them the opportunity to repair the TV, if they can all well and good, if they can't then that would be the time to go down the SOGA route, whilst CAB are good, sometimes they tend to give bad advice.


Who ever heard of someone getting a job at the Jobcentre? The unemployed are sent there as penance for their sins, not to help them find work!

as the item has become faulty after 6mts

 

 

its down to you as the buyer

to get a report down

to fwd to them

and get it repaired/replaced or refunded

 

 

under SOGA as they think fit.

 

 

if they agree either of the above, the cost of the report is refunded by them too.

Thanks. We paid by debit card. I'll have a phone round and see if I can get a reasonable quote from an engineer.

For once it sounds like Currys have actually been owning up to their responsibilities right from the outset. The only real issue was that their own report fee, £95, is a bit excessive given that these are usually £50-60 from an independent engineer.

I would say that you are correct however, even a £200 TV should last longer than 18 months. For that money I would expect about 3 years before a fault showed up.

 

My suspicion is that some products are designed to fail after a short amount of time or they use products that are far too cheap to be reliable in the long term.


If you are asked to deal with any matter via private message, PLEASE report it.

Everything I say is opinion only. If you are unsure on any comment made, you should see a qualified solicitor

With the SOGA there is no brand distinction, same legislation applies.

No there isn't but price paid reflects how long it is likely to reasonably last. You wouldn't get a judge rule in your favour in the 6th year if you'd paid £200, but you would if you paid £600+ imho

Just because you pay more money doesn't mean it will last longer or that you would get a more favourable judgement.
