    • Not sure if the above issue is covered in this group but if so I am after some advice.   My Dad is in his late 90's and on his death leaves everything to my Mum, also in her 90's but housebound. It is our intention and the request of Mum that when Dad has passed that the property she is currently living in is sold, we sell our property as well and we purchase a property with an annexe and self contained toilet / shower facilities where Mum could live out her days with us. There is no way on this Earth that she would go into an old folks home and it's certainly not on our agenda. Our daughter is their registered carer who currently looks after them.   Mum's Will as it stands at present states that I inherit her estate on her death.  She is talking about transferring the property she  currently resides in to me so that I can handle the sale of both properties. As her Will currently stands, the property she is living in will have already been sold so the Will won't be applicable. Could she change her Will now to state that on Dad's passing her property passes to me or can she gift the property?   The simple thing would be for Dad to change his to state that the property transfers to me but he is currently suffering with dimentia. He hardly knows what day of the week it is and gets very confused and agitated.   Any advice would be grateful. Thanks
    • One very useful admission to obtain from them in a recorded call would be to get them to admit that they hadn't informed you in advance as to the cost of the car rental. So for instance – "I'm just calling to find out what the cost of the car rental is because when you first approached me, it wasn't explained. I'm just want to find out so I can start arranging to pay how much I owe you." Something like that. The point is somehow or other to get them to acknowledge that they hadn't told you the rate at the time. It's an implied term of any contract the services that where no price has been agreed – then a reasonable price will be implied. Clearly you are not being asked to pay a reasonable price
    • Just to add, if you can start recording your calls then telephone conversations might be very useful because you may well be able to steer the conversation into some useful admissions. For instance, you might be able to get them to refer to the earlier conversations and what was said in them. This kind of thing would be gold dust. I think you can see that you have been tricked by aggressive salespeople – and it's up to you to start becoming a bit aggressive and assertive – and tricky – yourself.
    • Also, SAR to everyone else. I've already asked you to do this on the other thread. Also, no more phone calls unless you have read our customer services guide and implemented the advice there.

    • Hi @BankFodder
      Sorry for only updating you now, but after your guidance with submitting the claim it was pretty straight forward and I didn't want to unnecessarily waste your time. Especially with this guide you wrote here, so many thanks for that
      So I issued the claim on day 15 and they requested more time to respond.
      They took until the last day to respond and denied the claim, unsurprisingly saying my contract was with Packlink and not with them.
       
      I opted for mediation, and it played out very similarly to other people's experiences.
       
      In the first call I outlined my case, and I referred to the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 as the reason to why I do in fact have a contract with them. 
       
      In the second call the mediator came back with an offer of the full amount of the phone and postage £146.93, but not the court costs. I said I was not willing to accept this and the mediator came across as a bit irritated that I would not accept this and said I should be flexible. I insisted that the law was on my side and I was willing to take them to court. The mediator went back to Hermes with what I said.
       
      In the third call the mediator said that they would offer the full amount. However, he said that Hermes still thought that I should have taken the case against Packlink instead, and that they would try to recover the court costs themselves from Packlink.
       
      To be fair to them, if Packlink wasn't based in Spain I would've made the claim against them instead. But since they are overseas and the law lets me take action against Hermes directly, it's the best way of trying to recover the money.
       
      So this is a great win. Thank you so much for your help and all of the resources available on this site. It has helped me so much especially as someone who does not know anything about making money claims.
       
      Many thanks, stay safe and have a good Christmas!

A hero is an individual who goes beyond what is normally expected of him. That is why ex-squadies and Fireman etc hate being called a hero, they are simply doing their duty

 

Murdered is killing an individual that is contrary to law. In war time you kill the enemy, not murder as it is state sanctioned if your own life is in danger at a particular time and place. Even combat has legislation to abide by. That is why you have war crimes tribunals

 

You can be killed in a car accident

Killing is also contrary to law as in manslaughter. The intention was not to murder but the outcome was a death.

 

There are very few car 'accidents'. Accident implies that no one was to blame which is why people now say 'collision' instead. A true accident is when something happens within or without a vehicle that is beyond the drivers control.

Most times, a collision is caused by someone making an error.

A hero is an individual who goes beyond what is normally expected of him.

 

In my eyes a hero is a person who put his/her life on the line above and beyond the call of duty

to save others.

So why are people who for instance run a marathon, climb a mountain, sail the Atlantic, and lots

of other activities called hero’s by the press TV and all forms of the media?

 

I will guarantee that if any of our countrymen win medals in Reo the press and TV will be calling

them hero’s, it really gets up my nose they are not hero’s full stop. Maybe we will see for instance

somebody who wins the marathon being awarded the VC.

 

The Victoria Cross is the highest award for gallantry that a British and Commonwealth serviceman can

achieve. It is linked with acts of extreme bravery and the original document associated with the medal

stated that it could only be awarded for “gallantry of the highest order”.26 Feb 2015

 

Acts of gallantry in the fire service, since 1977, George Medal or Queen’s Gallantry Medal.

 

Queen's Police Medals for Gallantry Awarded for

"acts of exceptional courage and skill at the cost of their lives.

What is the different’s between - killed and murdered.

 

Once again the media and press never in my opinion state what anybody

with any sense can see, I don’t know if it’s just a case of trying to dumb-down

a happening, after all the PC brigade has taken over everything else in this country.

 

If I was in my house and the roof fell in and I died, I would have been killed due to

an accident. If I was driving my car and I had a puncture ran off the road and hit a

wall and I died I would have been killed due to an accident. If I fainted while on a

train station platform and fell in front of a train and died, I would have been killed

due to an accident.

 

This is where the different’s comes in, a priest in France has his throat cut and he

dies the press etc.; say he was killed. A nut case in a lorry drives along a road and

80+ die were they killed? another nut case chopped off the heads of dozens of

Christians in Syria its reported that they were killed.

 

They were Bl***y murdered why don’t people use the right terminology, and say

what it really is.

Because you cannot say murder , manslaughter or justifiable homicide until a person has been charged or not. Be it you like it or not people believe in the rule of law no matter where you are. That is all suspects are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. We do not do kangaroo courts or lynching

"So what you are saying is that no matter what the circumstance a killing cannot be classed as murder until a

perpetrator has been charged or it has gone to court." Is that correct?

 

Two blood soaked nut cases murder Lee Rigby, they are pictures standing there with blood all over their hands

and a blood stained knife saying they are soldiers, and confessing to doing it, and it cannot be called murder??

 

A nutter in a lorry ploughs into families out for the evening, and murders 80+ and that's not murder?, its right

in front of your face it does not need a charge of murder saying that is what it is, and if it is not murder then the

policemen who shot and killed him should be tried in court, as the man according to you is innocent until proven guilty.

 

The same goes for the 2 nutters who murdered the priest, innocent until proven guilty, should the police who

shot them be had for murder? There is also the other nutter on the train who murdered a couple of passengers,

innocent until proven guilty, shot by police??

 

If something looks like murder, the chances are it most likely is, and we should call it that, not killed.

I think what is missing here is the human thought. To us, it is murder however the official system will not say such as this country is very PC and will only class it as murder once a court has judged it to be so. Some in the media try not to use emotive language 'just in case' their reporting brings about reprisals against innocents.

 

You have to recognise that these terrorists have bastardised the Koran to their own ends (and no I haven't read it) Islam in itself is a peaceful religion and we shouldn't forget that.
