    • Noted! Hopefully there won't have to be another time though!     I did respond to the email, I just basically said that he cannot deduct any costs incurred for collecting / picking up the vehicle and if it heads down the route of ADR which is a total new concept of me having any evolvement with, that he would have to pay a refund/the cost of the car and the cost associated with the collection of the vehicle.    Apon further checking the legislation because he gave me no cancellation rights prior to the contract starting he is indeed guilty of an offence, which is the likelihood of what trading standards are dealing with in regards to his local TS contacting him.     
    • hi,     Just asking for some experience or knowledge.     I purchased a puppy on the 30th of august. On numerous occasions I was in contact with breeder and asked if the puppy showed signs of entropion.    I was told no.   On the 26th of August puppy had first jabs. And apparently their vets said none of the litter showed sign of entropion.    On collection of puppy I noticed he was covered in green mucus. The pen had dog muck spread in there so assumed it was just from pups playing and maybe getting it in each others eyes (poor hygeine on breeders part)   Anyways,   Asked breeder to wipe pup and we left       With in 3 hours we realised that the puppy wasn't well. He physically couldn't open his eyes and when we attempted to clean them his eyeballs weren't visible.    We phoned an out of hour vets and contacted the breeders immediately.     The pup was taken to the vets and we were informed he had a severe eye infection which was a result to entropion.    The vet bill came to around 900 after tacking and meds etc. I asked the breeder to cover the costs. They said no because their vets said their was no issues.     The state on this puppy my vets think he's suffered from birth.     And most certainly not 5 minutes before I turned up.      I've filed a small claims for the cost of the vets and the cost of the puppy.      Where do you think ill stand?    What type of evidence will the judge want to see. Thanks

    • 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 .

I will be travelling abroad for 7-10 days and will be signing off, I am on old style JSA and want to avoid if possible making a fresh claim for UC and make a rapid reclaim for JSA instead upon my return.



Would it not be the case that if I signed off from JSA for one week to go overseas then I would need to make a claim for housing benefit due to a change of circumstances to cover me for the period I am on zero income.


So I make my housing benefit claim immediately after I close down my JSA claim.


Therefore I cannot go on UC due to me awaiting a desicion for housing benefit ?


If you've applied for other benefits


You can’t get Universal Credit if you've applied for any of the following and you're waiting for a decision:

Jobseeker’s Allowance

Employment and Support Allowance

Income Support

Housing Benefit

Child Tax Credit

Working Tax Credit


Thoughts ?

Can you speak to your work coach about whether your claim can remain active whilst you are on holiday?


There was a time where a claimant could take up to two weeks of holiday a year whilst they were on Jobseekers allowance.

The rules, most likely, have tightened up, which is why I think your coach would be able to clarify.


Your housing benefit application is going to ask you about your income. So you would either state your monthly earnings in your job, savings or the fact that you are on benefit.


Are you going to state on your application form that you intend to make an application for Jobseekers allowance in a couple of weeks?


In all likelihood, I think you will be migrated to Universal Credit. The policy is to migrate single people across to the new system whenever they have a change of circumstances.You sound like a single person.


If you are claiming with a partner or with children then the system may not be able to support your migration as the full UC service is only active in a limited number of areas.

I am going to report a change of circumstances and will be on zero income and then when I return make a fresh claim,I am single so I'm in the target group for UC however there are gateway conditions and I wondered if this way I would be asked to rapid reclaim jsa

I think that if you were to make a claim for HB you would be directed towards UC anyway as a single non householder as UC has been introduced to replace the income related benefits. IT woudl behighly likely that both the HB and JSA would be declined and you would be advised to claim UC to cover everything.

You are definitely doing your best to avoid UC though I concur with flumps1976 that you are unlikely to avoid it. All the best with your plan.


P.S. Can I ask why you are so against UC? :-)

I am surprised anyone would ask that considering it is a flawed system which is unable to cope with the complexities of the benifit system leaving vunarable people without money upto and beyond 12 weeks,leaves them in rent arrears with the knock on effect that landlords are expected to absord the consequences. No holiday entitlement,unlike JSA no 2*14 day illness it 2*7 for UC and if I am not mistaken no budgeting loans a vital lifeline for some people, and if sanctioned under UC you have to pay back any finacial help unlike JSA.
