    • yes only court...   can I confirm this was settled via Barclaycard and chargeback as it was a debit card, rather than section 75 via a creditcard?  
    • Hi   Sorry for the delay in getting back to you don't worry we have not forgot you.   So they have destroyed ALL DATA personal to you as you did not take the Property. (really they have put there foot in it)   If they hold no personal data then they have NO evidence of what was agreed to with your Holding Deposit and the refusal to return it.   Now if it was me I would let them drop themselves in it even further by responding to there SAR response.   Thank you for your SAR Response dated XX/XX/2019   Due to this response I require clarification of the following:   1. Have you followed the Data Protection Act 2018 & General Data Protection Regulations on Destroying My Personal Data?   2. If you have Destroyed All My Personal Data then what documentation do you hold that I have signed/agreed to the Holding Deposit being Non-Refundable and to provide copies of this documentation.   3. I require a copy of your Policy on Holding Deposits   Please bear in mind the above is what I would do.   I do think it is looking like you may have to go down the court route (make sure and have a good read of that link I previously gave you to the Tenants Fee Act).
    • 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?

Help!

 

I have been a member of LA FITNESS for about 6 months and I loved the gym however mainly for the use of the pool.

 

During my time at the gym there were rumours pure would be buying the gym

 

I have been a member at pure before and hated it.

I contacted LA Fitness via telephone to enquire about the closure of the pool and they confirmed this would happen in October

 

once I had confirmation I definitely wanted to cancel however they explained this would not be possible!!

 

I also explained to them I was moving house to fareham where I wouldn't be able to use the gym anyway.

 

In the end this did not happen but they also said i could not cancel!

They asked me to speak to my gym personally regarding cancellation.

 

I went into the gym and they confirmed they were being taken over by pure and la fitness was closing down and said if I wanted to cancel I should contact their customer service as I already did and they would note on my account my closure but said due to the closure of the pool and the change of ownership I was within my right to cancel.

 

 

I cancelled through my bank and have since recieved a letter to say that I needed to fill in a direct debit form to continue my payment!

 

I received nothing else no emails or phone calls until

today when I recieved a letter from ARC EUROPE saying I owed £334.40!!!

 

I am absolutely gobsmacked it has gone from setting up my direct debit again to owing this money!

 

They gym is now refurbished and a pure gym so isn't even LA Fitness anymore!

 

There is nothing about this in my contract although it states if there is a change to the use of my gym

 

I.e my main use (the pool closing) I can cancel.

Or I move which at the time I was meant to I could cancel!

Please help!

 

I don't fancy a court case or paying for a gym that doesn't even exist anymore!!!

 

Help me please

Hi Emilly and welcome to CAG

 

The gym removed a key facility, the pool, and you were within your rights to cancel because of this.

 

Any suggestion to the contrary is nonsense.

 

I'd ignore any demands from ARC for now but you need to stay off the phone completely and keep all comm'ns in writing only.

 

Have you written to the gym at all to explain why you've cancelled ?

 

:-)

I haven't no.

Should I not call LA Fitness to explain?

Or should I send it to them in writing?

 

Thanks

Always ALWAYS keep correspondence in writing, unless you can record your phone calls?

 

Send LA Fitness a letter, obtain ''proof of posting'' which is free from the PO counter, and tell them that you have cancelled your agreement due to the changes to the gym.

 

Short and sweet and to the point, and inform them that ''I am mindful of your use of ARC and their demands for payments, you are held ultimately responsible for their action, as such continued harassment by them will attract a formal complaint to the relevant authorities, including but not limited to, the CMA and the police.''


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!
