    • You will be subject to the same laws notice periods and protections as with any length of contract.    From my own and other’s personal experience I would treat it as an amber warning light to start putting out feelers into what’s out there on the market   A 6 month contract is great for people who might be waiting for a new build , or having renovations done on their own property. For someone like yourself who wants security it might well be time for you to consider moving on.
    • Thank you. You still haven't given as much information. We need more. Please will you tell us who the retailer is – are they in UK or elsewhere? What was the item and what is its value? Did you declare the correct value? Or did the retailer declare the correct value? You say you paid by credit card – not a debit card against your bank account? Please read around all the Hermes threads on this forum. There is lots of good information there. In particular understand your rights under the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999.
    • I am sorry, but without seeing the contract, and knowing what is on it or what effect it has, it is impossible to say.     
    • A16 BYN is the plates that the car was advertised with, and obviously the plate which I checked the mot history with, I also thought the same that the website maybe hadn't been updated with the most recent mot that the dealer had got done, I asked for the original plate number whilst doing the logging in to my bank account, to pay both the dealer and the shiply transporter. Bearing in mind I had told the dealer around 6pm that I would get the deposit sorted out when I put my son to bed, that gave him every opportunity to send me any pre contract details etc. Just over an hour later (son still wasn't in bed) asked for the address of where the vehicle was to be picked up from as I couldn't accept the quote for the transporter without that information. Less than an hour after that he whatsapped me asking if I still want to buy the car because he's getting enquiries from other interested parties and is telling them that he's sold the car to me (no deposit  paid as yet). I then replied a few min later having finally got my son to sleep.    Anyway between me sorting out the details and where to pick the car up from, log into my banking to pay deposits etc he'd  messaged me the original plate no... which I didn't see until after I'd done all the aformentioned.    I decided to check the history on that plate as like yourself I had been confused about the mileage, low and behold there was the most recent mot containing 5 advisories which were never mentioned to me. Another thing I can't really understand is the expiry date of the mot before that either and I did query all of this with the dealer, only to be told that cars in Scotland are renowned for corrosion issues...and that if I had checked the mot history I would have seen them, I explained I had checked the history on the plate in the advert as I had no knowledge of what the original plate numbers were and he told me that the most recent mot was under the plate in the advert. Most certainly the mot certificate he then sent me on whatsapp had the advertised plate on the certificate,  however, it wasn't showing up on the dvla page.    By this stage I was irate with him for several reasons, for not notifying me of the advisories and telling me that he had checked the dvla and the most recent mot was showing up on the advertised plates, I then screenshot the page with the expiry and this car is not mot'd information, and 2 for telling me that cars in Scotland are renowned for corrosion issues!    Had he simply said, the car is 18 years old you're going to expect to have some corrosion at some point, I'd have been a bit more tolerant at that stage. Apon checking the history on the original plates, it transpired it passed the last MOT previous to the most recent one on the same day the advertised plates ran out, I still haven't quite fathomed out what is going on regards to this. However the previous mot showed no corrosion issues and as it hadn't failed on that basis, I would get the panel beater sprayer mentioned in an earlier post to have a look at it, and sort the issues out re that, also the main reason I had the car delivered to my dad's address as that's also the area where the panel beaters business is.

    • I’m in desperate need of help
       
      I bought some clothes online in may through Evans and paid through PayPal
      returned them all seven days later
       
      I waited the 14days for my refund and no refund came
      I put in a dispute through PayPal but I didn’t get any emails to escalate the case - PayPal closed it. 
      evans said they couldn’t refund the money because PayPal have cancelled the refund because of the open dispute
       
      I contacted PayPal
      they said the dispute had been closed but Evans at no point had attempted a refund.
      fast forward to today
       
      I’ve got copies of numerous messages sent to and from twitter messages as it’s the only way I can contact them
      I’ve also contacted their customer service too
      all I get is PayPal have cancelled refund because dispute is still open.
       
      I have proved that the dispute is closed
      I have got an email saying that if Evans sent the refund they would accept it
      but up until the date I got the email they have not once attempted a refund .
       
       I have sent them a letter before court email
      I have even offered to have the full refund as a gift card just to get this sorted !
       
      I’m literally at the end of my tether and don’t know where to turn next !
       
      i suffer with mental health issues and this is affecting my health and I’d saved the money for a year to buy these clothes as I’m on a low income .

Hi all

 

I tried to SORN my car , but was not able too

 

I purchased the car back in April

 

the car was beyond economical repair, so I purchased another car , then canceled the car tax ,

 

before doing so I tried to sorn the original car on-line, I was not able to as the car owner was the previous owner still.

I appreciate I should have chased the V5 but had a lot on my plate and forgot to chase it up.

 

I then sold the car for scrap, and agreed to send the paper work once received.

Mistake number 2

 

I then had the police asking if I was the owner of the car, as it was found in a ditch.

no further action from the police.

 

I have contacted the DVLA and they have not received the slip I was given from the dealer whom I purchased the car from.

this has not been received yet, so I am at a loss what to do as the previous keeper is the one who is receiving all the flack from the DVLA,

Any advice would be appreciated

 

Leakie.

Did the dealer send the v5 to dvla and give you the small slip? Because the dealer should have done that, and if the v5 isnt in your possession then you should be chasing that dealer.

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..

 

 

If my advice helps you, click the star icon at the bottom of my post and feel free to say thanks

Thanks for a quick response.

 

The Dealer could not have sent the V5 to the DVLA.

I sent the slip, only a couple of weeks ago, as I spoke to the DVLA about not being able to sorn.

I then purchased a new car transferred the insurance, cancelled the tax and tried to sorn but could not

 

The police told me that the previous owner had contacted them as the car that had been found in the ditch was still registered to him.

 

so officially I am not the registered keeper

if you aren't the RK, and don't want the car, what is the problem?

Yes, but it is also the responsibility of the seller to inform the DVLA when they dispose of a vehicle and not take the word of someone who says 'leave it to me, I will do the log book', so they must take some responsibility.

It is only the responsibility of the seller to notify the change of keeper, the buyer doesn't do anything, just waits tor the DVLA to send their V5C. The buyer just keeps the green 'New Keeper Supplement' slip from the old V5C. If the buyer does not receive the V5C, they need to apply for it using a form V62.

He could well have notified the change, we know from experience how letters go missing at the DVLA without any reason.

So any come back the will be the garage owner who purchased the car from the previous RK.

 

I know that he had the car from June as I had sight of the original V5

I purchased the car in August.

 

The DVLA asked me to send in a letter explaining what happened, which I have held back on for now,

But it is still only the seller that is responsible for notifying change of keeper, even if the V5C goes missing at the DVLA.
