    • thank you. Under the Consumer Rights Act you are entitled to have a vehicle of satisfactory quality.   If a defect appears within the first 6 months of ownership which means that the car is not satisfactory then you are required to give the dealer a single opportunity to repair or else refund you.   So the question is what condition would a car of that make model, age and mileage and price be in.   I think the best way forward is to raise the issue with the dealer but also start to make your own researches as to whether the rust damage to this vehicle is beyond what would be expected of a vehicle of that character and in those circumstances.   When you have discovered. then come back here.   Additionally, you haven't told us the cost of the vehicle. that would be helpful to know because it will affect the quality of vehicle that you would reasonably expect.   Also I asked you the name of the dealer and you haven't told us. Are you trying to protect them?                
    • Thank you Slick132. I don't have in writing how long the actual works themselves would take but believe they said it was two weeks.   I spoke with CAB earlier today and they've said I can cancel this order as the company are already in breach of the terms, plus catching them out re the manufacturer's and the buildings regs she said to put in writing that I was cancelling and mention breach of consumer protection, unfair trading regulations and the fact that they are wilfully misleading me.   She said the credit card company will handle the refund as I hoped. I don't want them working for me in any way shape or form now.
    • Hi thanks for replying, The car was registered in 2009 ½, as I said a 59 plate. Mileage, when I got it it had circa 45K miles, it now has circa 72K miles. I have had it for 3 years almost to the month. I got it from a dealership in Loughborough, on the selling point that it was low mileage and was dealership serviced. Shortly after my return home to Southampton, I took it into my local dealership for a once over, part of which entailed one of their mechanics sitting with me while I drove around locally. I wanted them to take over looking after the car for me. Hope this helps?
    • just remember a DCA is NOT A BAILIFF and have ZERO   legal powers on any debt no matter what it's type.
    • Hi.   You've posted in the self-employment forum although as I understand it you can only be made redundant as an employee.   I've moved your thread to the Employment forum, people should be along to advise later.   HB

    • I came across this discussion recently and just wanted to give my experience of A Shade Greener that may help others regarding their boiler finance agreement.
       
      We had a 10yr  finance contract for a boiler fitted July 2015.
       
      After a summer of discontent with ASG I discovered that if you have paid HALF the agreement or more you can legally return the boiler to them at no cost to yourself. I've just returned mine the feeling is liberating.
       
      It all started mid summer during lockdown when they refused to service our boiler because we didn't have a loft ladder or flooring installed despite the fact AS installed the boiler. and had previosuly serviced it without issue for 4yrs. After consulting with an independent installer I was informed that if this was the case then ASG had breached building regulations,  this was duly reported to Gas Safe to investigate and even then ASG refused to accept blame and repeatedly said it was my problem. Anyway Gas Safe found them in breach of building regs and a compromise was reached.
       
      A month later and ASG attended to service our boiler but in the process left the boiler unusuable as it kept losing pressure not to mention they had damaged the filling loop in the process which they said was my responsibilty not theres and would charge me to repair, so generous of them! Soon after reporting the fault I got a letter stating it was time we arranged a powerflush on our heating system which they make you do after 5 years even though there's nothing in the contract that states this. Coincidence?
       
      After a few heated exchanges with ASG (pardon the pun) I decided to pull the plug and cancel our agreement.
       
      The boiler was removed and replaced by a reputable installer,  and the old boiler was returned to ASG thus ending our contract with them. What's mad is I saved in excess of £1000 in the long run and got a new boiler with a brand new 12yr warranty. 
       
      You only have to look at TrustPilot to get an idea of what this company is like.

    • Dazza a few months ago I discovered a good friend of mine who had ten debts with cards and catalogues which he was slavishly paying off at detriment to his own family quality of life, and I mean hardship, not just absence of second holidays or flat screen TV's.
       
      I wrote to all his creditors asking for supporting documents and not one could provide any material that would allow them to enforce the debt.
       
      As a result he stopped paying and they have been unable to do anything, one even admitted it was unenforceable.
       
      If circumstances have got to the point where you are finding it unmanageable you must ask yourself why you feel the need to pay.  I guarantee you that these companies have built bad debt into their business model and no one over there is losing any sleep over your debt to them!  They will see you as a victim and cash cow and they will be reluctant to discuss final offers, only ways to keep you paying with threats of court action or seizing your assets if you have any.
       
      They are not your friends and you owe them no loyalty or moral duty, that must remain only for yourself and your family.
       
      If it was me I would send them all a CCA request.   I would bet that not one will provide the correct response and you can quite legally stop paying them until such time as they do provide a response.   Even when they do you should check back here as they mostly send dodgy photo copies or generic rubbish that has no connection with your supposed debt.
       
      The money you are paying them should, as far as you are able, be put to a savings account for yourself and as a means of paying of one of these fleecers should they ever manage to get to to the point of a successful court judgement.  After six years they will not be able to start court action and that money will then become yours.
       
      They will of course pursue you for the funds and pass your file around various departments of their business and out to third parties.
       
      Your response is that you should treat it as a hobby.  I have numerous files of correspondence each faithfully organised showing the various letters from different DCA;s , solicitors etc with a mix of threats, inducements and offers.   It is like my stamp collection and I show it to anyone who is interested!

Hi guys... here is my situation...

 

I work for a charity in London

 

 

on a beautiful summer's day (15th July 2015) we had to offload 1,500 cakes to be delivered to donors across the city to raise money for our charitable cause.

Our volunteers are our delivery agents that go door2door personally delivering these cakes.

 

 

We decided to meet at a retail car park, which was dead quiet that afternoon, to quickly unload the cakes from our van onto the volunteers' cars.

However due to severe delays in traffic that day the van arrived 2 hours late.

 

 

However the volunteers that arrived on time stayed in the car park waiting for the van to arrive.

As a result 5 of our volunteer drivers received Parking Charge Notices in the post (ANPR) from Highview Parking for overstaying in the car park.

 

On 5th of August I provided an appeal letter to the drivers to appeal (Attached "Parking-Challenge-Cakes4Syria Drivers_05-08-15.pdf").

All 5 of them sent the appeals.

 

On 20th August they were sent letters rejecting their appeals. Rejection letter attached "IMG-20150824-WA0005_V2.jpg"

 

From researching around the net, the most common advise seems to be to ignore their threats and let it go away.

However, because these are young volunteers, never been on the wrong side of the law,

they are too scared of the alleged consequences and would prefer it to be formally resolved.

 

Help and guidance on the next step would be gratefully appreciated.

The PPC will always reject the appeal. They cant make money otherwise. You just need a popla code so you can appeal to them and get this sorted.

 

You must NEVER ignore it. At all. That is the wrong advice. You wont have to pay a penny though.

Any advice i give is my own and is based solely on personal experience. If in any doubt about a situation , please contact a certified legal representative or debt counsellor..

your original appeal covers all of the relevant points but it is not surprising that Highview failed to answer any of them when sending out their generic response. It could be argued therefore that they havent considered the appeal properly by not addressing the points but as these people are mostly ex-clampers it is hardly surprising. You should see the group photos of them at their annual bash!

However, they have given the POPLA code so appeal to POPLA using the same grounds but whilst you are at it you can add that you do not believe they have planning permission for their sigange and so a leagl contract caqn never be formed and require strict proof of the PP as well as contract with Landowner etc. You should also write to the press office of the landowner and make your case for them to use their discretion in the matter and make it obvious that their response will be made public via the (social) media or your charity's website (just a notice reminding those who have received a charge notice from Highview should make sure that they appeal using the POPLA code they were given and then a bit of well, we never thought this would happen-charitable deeds, lack of goodwill, feeling abandoned by named store etc) and Highview may well find themselves under pressure to drop the matter when it comes to the POPLA appeal (that will cost them anyway)

What date did you get the NTK's through the post? They have a very limited time to send them out and if they were late then no keeper liability. If they arrived more than 14 days after the date of the event your first line to POPLA should be the demand is not compliant with para 8 or 9 of the PoFA so their demand has been addressed to the wrong people.

Thanks for this. They've given a POPLA code in the rejection letter. Is there a template letter that I can use to take this up with POPLA and get the charges cancelled?

Sorry Ericsbrother I just saw your reply after sending my last message. In terms of NTK they sent it within 14 days to all the drivers. So I don't think there is a case against them there. I've taken onboard your advise on writing to the retail park's owner and the points to cover in my letter to POPLA. So you reckon I should just use the same letter in essence but modify it so that its addressed to POPLA?

Yes, but add the demand to see the planning permission for the signs as most companies dont have it and that is a criminal offence. You cannot agree to a contract based upon criminality, even if you wanted to.

Generally though, the lack of contract is enough as it is usually with a managing co or it is flawed in the extent of what is allowed so they dont like shoing it.
