    • Hi all, just to close this one, please see the photos below....before and after    Thank you, all, for some great advice (as per usual!)
    • Thanks BankFodder.   I wasn't intending on making bones about it with them but I was irked at being dismissed with the phrase 'it's store policy'.  I returned it because I was returning an air hockey game which wasn't functioning properly.  I would have assumed that if it were designed as a toy for an audience that may be prone to dropping it, it would be made to be suitably durable.  I was expecting that a year would have been reasonable and by it not lasting it was, as you mentioned, not of satisfactory quality. Alas, it's not something I wish to pursue to find out for sure.   I do appreciate your feedback, as always on here, I like to know where I stand with these things.  Thanks also for the heads-up on the Youtube video, I had not thought of that.
    • I've also being doing some reading over the weekend. It appears the law of properties act 1925 does not apply in Scotland (only England and Wales).   "In Scotland an assignation need not be in writing, and intimation is all that is needed to give the assignee a right effective against all parties. Apart from the terminology, the principal differences in England are as follows. Under the Law of Property Act 1925 the assignment must be in writing, the entire benefit must be assigned, and notice must be given to the other contracting party. If any of these elements are missing there may still be an equitable assignment – under which an assignee would typically need to join the assignor as a party to any action under the contract."   So I think the NOA defence is not going to hold up, as Nolans are probably right in what they are saying that their letter (intimation) is sufficient.   So my sole defence is going to be lack of default notice under section 87/88.   Any advice at this stage? I assume costs are still capped at £150 if lose?
    • Hi bankfodder. I do have the invoice in my email, so would it be the cost of the turbo and labour for fitting
    • as i said unsure of what this 15% is about.   the FOS/FCA clearly describe how refund calcs show have been made the their relevant sites.   p'haps at this juncture it might be better to scan up to ONE multipage PDF their refund letters  another set of eyes is always belter.   please read our upload guide carefully

    • 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!

Car crashed into my sisters car and drove off after refusing to give details

Just some advice needed here, I know ideally I should ask my sister to come here and make the post.

 

A car in a Salisbury's car park was reversing and almost knocked someone over, before hitting the front of my sisters car.

 

The person then refused to give any details and drove off. My sister has pictures of the woman and her car, and has got her reg number.

 

It has been reported to the police as a hit and run.

 

The damage is a split front bumper on my sisters car. Nothing too major.

 

The advice I am looking for is will this affect her premiums if she made a claim though the insurance of the other car (using askmid.com)?

 

I know she needs to inform her own insurance company, but that shouldn't affect her making a claim should it?

 

Thanks

You supply the insurer with the details you gave the police, and the crime number, The insurer will do the rest. Its what you pay them for.

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..

Without knowing for certain, I would say yes. It matters not which way the claim is, to the money grabbing insurance companies a claim is a claim.

 

I'd like to be proved wrong.

I'm afraid that I think that this is correct. You have to record it. It will be logged as an accident and it is likely that your premium will increase.

 

You should put as much pressure as possible on the police to prosecute.

You need to inform your insurance that there's been a rta.

However I very strongly recommend that you pursue compensation via the third party insurance and not yours.

If you let your insurance deal with the claim, they will pay for the damage and you will lose your ncb.

In theory they should re-instate your ncb once they recover the money from the third party, but you don't know if and when that will happen.

Hit and run is serious and the third party insurance would possibly cancel the insurance, getting the woman in a lot of trouble when she wants to buy another insurance.

If this happened today, see what information becomes available in the next 24 hours. The Police might have paid this lady a visit and they might come back with details. Perhaps the car was not insured or she was not insured to drive it. Or she might be regretting her actions and will advise her Insurers to deal with your Sisters claim.

 

If your Sister has legal cover they will help her pursue whatever is needing to be claimed. This won't interest a no win no fee Solicitors, If there is not enough money involved e.g personal injury. Just getting the third parties details through Askmid and trying to claim directly might just lead to delay. They would have to write out to their policyholder, if they has not contacted them about the accident.

 

It would be quicker for your Sister to claim off her own policy, if the third party driver or third party insurers do not help within the next few days. Obviously claiming on her own policy means paying the excess and there is no guarantee it would be a non fault claim if the Insurers could not claim their outlay back.

 

Just in case of any argument about fault, check for CCTV in the car park.

We could do with some help from you.

Thanks,

 

Some mixed advice. I would assume 3rd party means exactly that; covers 3rd party claims where they are at fault. She did check the number plate and they were insured. No CCTV in the area. I will check if the police have done anything. She doesn't want to go through her own insurance at all really. The bumper is worth less than what her premiums would end up being.

 

I have seen the pictures of both cars. It may make things difficult as my sister had just started to pull out of a space, (front wheels on the white line), when the other car fully reversed into her car from the space opposite. I know insurance companies love to get a 50/50 blame so it would be hard to prove which car hit which. She apparently said "I don't give out details" and then drove off. She had bright blue hair which matched the car! :lol:

Third party cover is to cover any liability against her for an accident she was found to have some fault for.

 

Given that your Sister started to move, it will probably go down as 50/50.

 

I am not sure it is worth pursuing. I suspect if she tried to claim off the other drivers third party cover, they won't be that helpful. If it ends up as a 50/50 she will get half of her costs back, but then the third party insurers may claim off your Sisters policy, if the third makes a claim for damage to their car.
