    • HI   Firstly the parking in front of your drive, do you have a pavement with a Drop Kerb in front of your property to access your driveway, if so are they infringing on the Drop Kerb? (note your can ask the council to to paint a white line with lines at the end on the road in front of the drop kerb please note there may be a cost from the council to do so)   As for the CCTV look at this ICO link: https://ico.org.uk/your-data-matters/domestic-cctv-systems-guidance-for-people-using-cctv/   Due to the new DPA/GDPR if you have CCTV on your Property and it views outside of that Properties Bounderies they then need to register as a Data Controller with the ICO.   So I would make a Formal Complaint in writing to the Councils Data Controller, ICO (specifically asking if this individual is Registered with them as a Data Controller) & Police, you need to keep a good paper trail of this individuals actions.   I hope this individual knows the Law on Harassment as from your thread that is the impression I get is no matter what you do they will find something else to complaint about.  
    • Most guarantees are not transferable anyway to the new owner so why a solicitor should request it is pointless.The quotes should suffice to prove the work was carried out.   Andy
    • Apologies for the prolonged radio silence!   To cut a very long story short, I went back to Barclaycard (because I bought the car with my VISA card) and they offered to repair the car at a cost of £2500.   We accepted the offer because we were advised that even if we went to court and won the case, there was no guarantee that the dealer would give us our money back anyway or would end up paying us £10 a week for the next umpteen years.   The decision to have the car repaired was also made in the light of the fact that apart from the gearbox issue the rest of the car was in good nick. It is running fine after nearly 4 months now, so even if our friend gets a few more years out of it it will have been worth it.   Now that it is all settled I can reveal the name of the dealer - it was Thatcham Motor Company, in Thatcham, Berks. Very pleasant to deal with at first whilst everything was ok but boy oh boy, beware if anything goes wrong!   Similarly Momentum Warranties who provided the 6 months "warranty". On paper this warranty apparently covers practically every conceivable fault that the car might develop until you try to make a claim!   It seems that only if a component physically breaks that any cover is provided, otherwise they will hide behind the "fair wear and tear" get-out clause. Can an ECU unit be subject to wear and tear?   I would not touch either of these outfits again with the proverbial barge pole. Buyer beware!   One further thing I forgot to mention. We ran up considerable expenses trying to sort all the issues - the engineer's reports, travel costs etc.   Is it too late to try to claim these back from the dealer now? I just ran out of energy by the time Barclaycard agreed to pay for the repair but now the dust has settled I am up for it again!   Would this have to be done via the Small Claims Court?
    • no rush yet not due for 3 weeks as per andyorch's information above   i'm sure we'll get time before then.   dx  
    • There is a space for comment on the N180 where you can state that you wish to object to any request by the Claimant for an "on the papers" hearing. I wouldn't worry about the permits term, as the non-display of a permit is not the apparent cause for action against you. Have you sent them a CPR request for documentation?

Long story short.

 

Got a letter from HMRC saying we'd been over payed due to not informing them of a change in our son's circumstances.

 

He had started a modern apprenticeship in October 2014 after leaving school. I phoned and informed them at the time but although they acknowledge the phone call they claim that no request was made to update our details, which is quite frankly absurd. Why else would I have been on the phone to them otherwise?

 

Anyone have any experience of this or how to challenge it?

You have 3 months from the decision letter to dispute any overpayment. Are you still within this timescale?

 

Info here on how to dispute - https://www.gov.uk/tax-credits-overpayments/dispute-form-tc846

 

You may want to make a subject access request for a record of your calls.

Did you make any further calls to ask why you were still being paid if you knew you shouldn't have been?

I've got a SAR prepared but I thought it might be worth just asking them for a copy of that particular call. Probably better just to go with the SAR do you think?

 

No, I didn't ask why they were over paying because I didn't know. I assumed that since I had fulfilled my obligation to notify them of a change of circumstances they would have made the appropriate adjustment. They actually haven't said what the overpayment amounts to yet either .

 

Thanks

You need to make a SAR to get a copy of the call. It cannot be requested any other way.

 

Have you completed your annual review and been sent a final award for the 2014/15 tax year?

 

HMRC state that one of your responsibilities is:

"If you don’t get an award notice within 30 days of telling us about a change in circumstance let us know as soon as possible."

 

They may use that against you in a dispute.

Yes, although only an estimate as I don't submit a final figure for my income until January when the tax return is done.

I'm not sure if I did get an award notice, I'll have to have a dig through the big box of depressing documents to check.

 

Surely though if they have been informed of any change it is there responsibility to deal with the information and act upon it.

Just to update.

 

I requested a reconsideration back in July and just this morning got a reply. Took a while but worth the wait.
