    • I hope you mean I try to help people stand up to bullying - and not do the bullying!   I'll assume it's a compliment!     Well - that sort of demonstrates that you've not understood my point and (perhaps?) haven't actually read the OP?   My point is that it is not the boyfriend (the supposed "owner" of the car park) who is posting, but his girlfriend who believes that he "owns" his car parking space.  Yes - it usually makes sense to believe that what the OP is posting is the truth, but in this case there is every reason to believe that there is a possibility that the OP might be mistaken about her boyfriend's ownership of the parking space, because...  well, how would she know for sure whether he does or not?  He might be boasting or lying or simply mistaken.  (My understanding is that many people who "own" flats are often under the mistaken apprehension that they "own" a parking space when they don't.  All the more reason then that somebody else other than the "owner" might be even more mistaken).   I suppose what I'm getting at is that I was a bit surprised that both you and dx100uk were able to give such definite and certain answers to the OP without exploring her situation a bit more fully and ensuring that she fully and correctly understood her boyfriend's rights in respect of the parking space in question.  I was simply concerned that without getting more information from the OP, then the replies given to her might prove to be less than useful.  I wouldn't want her to leave thinking that there was absolutely nothing to worry about and then find out there was because she'd been misadvised because she didn't understand whether her BF "owned" the space or not.   Of course, it may be that my concern here makes absolutely no difference to the answer that needs to be given to the OP because it doesn't matter whether her boyfriend actually "owns" the parking space or not, which is fine.  But sometimes I think it would be helpful to the OP (and other readers like myself) if some of these legal niceties could be spelled out rather than left unexplained.    
    • I've spoken to my son in law and because the gearbox can be very expensive to repair, he would prefer to reject the car.   The garage isn't going to charge storage at the moment.   I feel they have been mislead regarding the service history.   How difficult would it be to get the finance company on our side in rejecting the car and sending back to the dealer?
    • The first thing to say is that you better go ahead and refund the buyer because otherwise she will end up getting negative feedback as well. We will try and help you get your money back from Hermes. Have you made a formal claim through Hermes and have they formally declined you and giving you reasons why? Presumably the item was properly declared and properly valued when the delivery was booked. You don't say whether or not you took out their so-called insurance. Please start off by reading around the sub- forum focusing particularly on the Hermes threats. There are lots of them. Get to understand the principles in respect of the arguments – the insurance element, your third party rights despite the fact that you booked it through Packlink. Have a look at other people's experiences of having sued Hermes, the process of issuing the claim, the defence, the mediation and have a close look at the advice that we give about how to handle mediation. It's highly likely that you will have to issue claim papers so also read around to understand the steps you need to take to bring a small claim in the County Court. It's straightforward but understanding the steps will make you far more confident about what you are doing. Have you started a formal complaint against Hermes and Packlink?

wallplug switches only kill the live

the neutral and earth are not switched.

 

 

if the house trip [RCD] went

that means there was a voltage between the earth and the neutral

[thats what it monitors and trip at 1st sign of current flowing]

:???: do you mean then its the socket at fault? eg not properly wired/earthed

IMO

yes so are mine.

 

 

cost a bit more but worth it for safety

yu can sometimes get a nasty belt between neutral and earth if the phase balancing/loading factor is not correct

 

 

as for if I'm saying the socket is at fault - no.

only that it did its job, the RCD, trip and that's the important thing.

 

 

I've seen a laptop PSU giving 350v on the neutral before now.

 

 

what some people don't realise about swichmode power supplies is they

can run at upto a 1000v inside because of how they work.

please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...

Hello, Just to update.

 

 

I ended up contacting the supplier HP directly who replaced the charger and have taken the old one away for investigation.

 

 

They were really nice about it and think its likely to be a fault with the charger.

 

 

I've been using it in the same socket since and having no issues.

 

 

Very still couldn't care less really and offered me £20 off as my complaint wasn't dealt with correctly.

 

 

They didn't really address any of my concerns at all but I'm just glad I've got a working machine at the moment. Thanks for all of your advice

sounds good. no faffing about, they sent a replacement straight away. ie what very shld have done/arranged.

 

sometimes better to go direct to the manufacturer.

 

maybe complain further re verys obstinence?

IMO
