    • You will have to go to court to get an order  and once that is doen then you both have to abide by it. The actual form filling is not complicated and the first court session doesnt actually make any decisions and you will be advised to reach an agreement that can then be set in stone by the court.   the father has a right to "contact", but this is not the same as having the right to demand a particular set of visits, stopovers etc so decide what you want, and how this is practical and then ask that the contact be limited to this. for example if you work your contact will all be gettinmg them up, feeding them, putting them to bed and have no fun time at weekends if has has them then. The courts will do what is in the best interests ogf the child so you need to stop being jealous of their love for their father and dont try and use the system to punish him or the children. If he was abusive or controlling them read up on the serious crimes  act  2015 about controlling and coercive behaviour and see how amny fo the examples fit his behaviour and use that to get the courts to set lterms that  limit that behaviour instead of using the children as the tools.
    • Does anyone know if a person has the right  to use a lay representative in the family division of the county court? the wording of the Lay representatives(right of audience) order 1999 refers to a county court and stage 1 or tier 1 proceedings and Scots law have a form to fill out for such representation but it isnt clear whether the english system has such a clearly defined right of audience. The MoJ mentions it in some discussion papers as though it is hard and fast but in other documents  it is McKenzie Friends who are written about as if they are the only people allowed other than sols/barristers.   reason why lay rep needed is they can speak and the other side cant object where with McKenzie friend they cant speak on behalf of claimant/respondent and the other party can object to that person being present- which will happen  in this particular case. Ultimately it may well be a discretionary power of the judge but dont want to start off with a bad step.
    • It seems as though the solicitoras want to keep hold of this payday and will do anything to churn it ( make money by continuing an action that isnt in the clients interests).   The land registry will have the record of who paid for the property and how so you will be in the clear on that as you didnt just take the place over, you bought it from the estate of the deceased.   now it seems like your mother is struck by regrets/remorse over her inability to take over the property at the time and what tends to happen is that relatives will sit there and say bad things about the person who they see is the beneficiary of their misfortune and then get into a feedback loop, each reinforcing the wrong opinion of the other.   Your attempts to sort things out logically ahs tempered this somewhat so do continue and keep clear of their  lawyers at all costs, they will just keep the meter ticking over and bring the negative thought back to the surface.   your parents will already be about 2 grand a day down on anything the sols have done so try and get them to  look back to the mess that her father's death left them in and amke it clear that at least the house is still in the family and that she has benefitted from that by receiving money at the time that otherwise she wouldnt have got.   If that still causes friction then I would still write to them rather than responding to the solicitor, the lesson they will learn will cost them less and when the sols have moved on to the next client they will have not lost so much of what they still have left.   Ultimately if they do actually issue proceedings you can ask for the claim to be chucked out as having no merit etc by showing how the place was bought. I do struggle to believe that people dont know who their mortgage was with even after all of this time,  same as I find it odd that people suddenly find details for accounts with tens of thousands in that they had forgotten about. You can find out as again it will be in the Land registry entry for most properties that had a mortgage

Hi guys,

I am about to buy an ex rental car from Hertz and I was wondering if it's worth doing an hpi check or just accept the one they will provide.

Also, on a separate note, do I have to register the road tax in my name even though the car is road tax exempt?

Thanks

You still need to apply for road tax, it will just be issued at zero cost. Remember failure to apply is the same level of fine as not taxing a vehicle does need paid road tax.

If it's on your mind, I would say do it. Paid just under £3 for mine on https://totalcarcheck.co.uk/ for some piece of mind.

 

EDIT: TCC doesn't check HPI, that's a separate thing altogether.

So who is this total car check?

Will they have all the information that HPI has?

 

 

They, like lots, have jumped on a bandwagon so will you get the full picture or will someone come knocking at your door in a few months saying the car has finance?

I think I would rather pay a few pounds extra.

 

 

Having said that, I don't think I would use any when buying from such a large and well known company, it will be easy to get redress should all not be in order.

Full hpi check is a bit more than £3. Don't skimp on a check. Especially when it could mean you are risking hundreds even thousands of pounds.

You're right. Didn't notice that before.

 

How old is the car you want to buy?

It's only 7 months old.

It's registered to Hertz uk car rental and I would buy directly from them, no middle man.

Could it really be on finance?

Thanks for the info on road tax.

You should always get hpi on any second hand car no matter who you get it from.

Thanks guys, I will invest the £20 to do a proper check.

One last thing, I've seen that ebay offers hpi check from hpicheck.com itself for less than half price.

Any difference?

For an extra fiver you can do 5 with autotrader/experiian, should you wish not to proceed and I think there's some extra guarantee that goes along with the check.

Hi, I got the car yesterday on a rental basis for 10 days and if I go ahead and purchase it they will knock the £10/day rental off the price.

It's basically a new car, apart from an almost invisible scratch on the bonnet, I can't fault it.

I haven't done the hpi check yet, but i will surely do it, just in case.

I don't want to get to the first service and being told the car was registered as a total loss 😱

Thanks for your help.
