    • Part of the POFA rules for creating a liability to pay a parking co is identifying the land they control so is there another palce of the incorrect name? If so then photographs of the other site will prove that your vehicle cnat possibly have been there as the images they will produce wont match the background etc. If however Bromhall developments is the name of their employer would the land in question be known by the same name for the entire development?   The POC is the usual rubbish and inaccurate one they cribbed from Gladstones so can be attacked in your outline defence.   Now I have googled Broomhall developments and they are an Irish Co that has bult a similar named housing estate in IRELAND. ther is also  a Broomhall gateway development plan for SCOTLAND but nothing in England, let alone Sheffield specifically   defence has to be in a fortnight after the deadline for the AOS assuming you get that in on time.   On google noseyneighbour I can see signs near to the parking bays that say permit holders only so unless you have a permit the signage doesnt apply to youas you would be prohibited fro parking there anyway. So with this in mind were you parked in a bay or on the road? Were you visiting or connected to the property that bay was allocated to and if so can you find out if the bay is part fo the property and noted in the deeds. If it is then it has nowt to do with VCS.   So you are going to grab some pictures and then you compare these to the web site of Broomhall development in ireland and that will be part fo your evidence   Also ask council when the Close was adopted by council as it appears to be a public highway
    • Ericsbrother   If I had the opportunity at the time I would have argued the value on the Court claim, however this wouldn't have changed by a significant amount.  So asking for it to be set aside is probably not going to end this in the long run.   No we don't owe any money to the business.   We have a good set of books and records.  No account filed as of yet.   The company is still 'active' on companies house and has not been dissolved.  We only received the Notice of enforcement a few days ago.       What makes you think they can force entry into a domestic property?      
    • Sorry but I think that it is rather precipitative giving advice – and rather over-generalised advice at that – until we understand more detail about the circumstances.
    • now the terms will specify that they can cancel if weather if bad etc and you have to accept that but by doing so they have to accept that the voucher's term is extended or they must refund for their failure to perform to the contract. essentially you should have asked for a refund on a no fly day and they would have to comply and by continuing to  accept things you were blindly accepting alterations to the original conrcat and that makes things more difficult. i would write again giving them 14 days to refund as they ahve filed to perform to their contractual obligations and then sue them if they still dont cough up. However, this meaqns you must follow through with the threat of cort action so before you start you need to read up on the relevant consumer legislation and also about performance of contracts

Hello All,

I had a Beko Fridge Freezer delivered on 18th February and as advised, left it for 8 hours before switching on.

On turning it on, there were strange sounds, some clicking and loud screeching sound, a bit like a cat being strangled.


I called Currys and was asked to talk to Beko, which I did. I was told this could be due to gases in the system and that I ought to wait a few weeks. It is now coming up to a month and the noise has not stopped. I asked for a Beko engineer, who came out today and said this was not faulty but the sounds were something found in the frost free type fridge freezers. While he acknowledged that it was problem, said nothing could be done as it is not listed as a fault.


I have called Currys to say that under the Sale of Goods act I wish to return the item. The have replied that it is now a used item and also as they cannot power the fridges in-store , the noise is not their responsibility.


Any suggestions would be most appreciated.


Thank you.

The relevant legislation is the Consumer Rights Act because your contract was made after October 2015.


Under this new act, if a defect appears within the first 30 days then you have a right to reject the item. You must assert your right in a clear and unambiguous way in the best thing to do is to do it in writing.


Whatever the situation about the defect, I suggest that you write a formal letter pointing out that you consider that the fridge is defective and that you are asserting your right to reject under the Consumer Rights Act and that you want a refund or a replacement – at your choice.


It sounds the Currys are not going to be very helpful on this. This business about it now being used item is a load of rubbish. You must assert your right in writing before the end of 30 days. The fridge freezer was delivered on 18 February so you have very few days to do this. I suggest that you deliver the letter tomorrow and also send a copy by first class recorded delivery. If you have an email address then send one by email as well.


After that, I suggest that you take some recordings of the noise and you might even like to post up those recordings here so that we can listen to them.


I have never heard of any fridge freezer needing a few weeks for gases to settle down. Also, I have never heard of frost free type fridge freezers making particular noises. He has acknowledged that it is a problem. It may not be listed as a fault – but it seems to me that it is clearly a fault but anyway, if you assert your right to reject in writing as I have suggested then you can begin insisting that they collect the fridge freezer.


How have you paid for it? Is it all paid for or are there instalments by direct debit or anything else?


Do a bit of research around the Internet and see if this is an acknowledged problem with these fridge freezers – all with fridge freezers generally.


Incidentally, don't expect much cooperation from Currys. Also don't expect that they will automatically either understand or respect your consumer rights. You will have to show them the way.
