    • Can anybody advise me please?   Been living in rented accommodation for over 11 years, old landlord who leased property with his shop has now left and so agents have become my new landlords, so gave me a new contract.   I'm really nervous as not sure what my rights are and could I get evicted as new contract says short term, 6 months.
    • It's the only way to proceed, he has to prove irrevocably that he gave me that information, and agreed to it, which he cannot do because it doesn't exist. Not only that, he sent me a trade sales invoice, other than that you're pretty spot on.
    • Sorry - need to put my glasses on!   I think you and the other posters have been at cross-purposes because they haven't followed what you are trying to argue.  You aren't arguing a fault etc with the car, you simply want to cancel it as a distance sale, and because the vendor did not provide the necessary cancellation information pre-contract in a durable medium, you are saying that you therefore have 12 months plus 14 days to cancel AND that the vendor has to pay the collection/recovery costs.   Although I understand that argument, I don't know if that's the best way to proceed or not.   I suspect not many people have tried to argue it with second-hand cars.  And that might be, for some reason I don't know, that it's a non-starter or it's too risky.
    • No, not all all.  It's up to them to prove you were the driver.  Well done in not telling them!   Remember in all this you are legally in the right.  Their parking fee was paid.  You're not trying to "get out" of something you owe.  They are in the wrong as far as the law goes.   So how about sending them something like -   Dear BW Legal,   cheers for your Letter Before Claim.   I don't earn owe your clients a bean, indeed your clients owe the driver of the vehicle who paid the parking fee - twice.  It is your clients' responsibility if the machines they buy second hand on eBay don't work properly because they're too tight to pay a technician to maintain them.   Your clients also gave me to no right of appeal or of paying a discount in contravention of their own industry's Code of Conduct.   You can either drop this foolishness now or your clients can get a good hiding in court, both are fine by me.  I fancy a winter holiday and I fancy financing it by an unreasonable costs order under CPR27.14(2)(g).   COPIED TO NCP   The reason i say to send to NCP too is because unscrupulous solicitors are well into their clients starting claims which are bound to lose, after all they get the £££ in any case.

    • 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 .

So I have a situation.

 

 

My bike was stolen, recovered with police and tracker company 1h later.

 

 

Damage is minimal, as in lost my disc lock and tope yoke which I can get for 200 new or 100 used.

I have picked the vehicle up and rode it home.

 

 

Should I be declaring that to insurance company?

I do not want to make a claim as my compulsory theft excess is 150.

Bike is not stolen anymore and except licence plate marker police had no time to put it on any other database. Plate marker was removed.

 

 

If I do declare it my insurance premium will sky rocket by 40 to 50%

On top of that when I tried to make a quote for new insurance (example quote to see what happens) there is no option to declare incident as:

Theft, recovered, 0 damage and no claim made.

 

 

For theft they only have:

- Theft

- Claim made against my insurance or other (I am not making claim)

- Value of claim (there is no value had no claim)

- % recovered 0 to 100 (there is none made no claim)

 

 

As they do not provide option to declare details of incident as it happened should I report it in 1st place?

Speak to your Insurers to notify of incident only. If you don't, then if the bike is stolen again and not recovered, you might get into difficulty with the claim. This incident is relevant to risk and will affect premium from renewal.

We could do with some help from you.

I know they will say that but how will it increase risk?

If I start using my other bike surely risk drops to same level as it was never stolen, or if I sell the stolen one and buy another. Maybe just park in bey on another street?

It's a [problem] I have done no cost to them they should not be able to do me on one?

 

Finally what am I then to do at renewal after reporting. No insurance company has option for theft not claimed. Is it OK to lie then?

I don't make the rules.

 

Read your policy terms about reporting requirements.

 

At the end of the day, it is your risk, if you don't report. I can only warn you that if you don't report it and Insurers find out about it later, that the Insurers could try to avoid paying out for another theft.

 

It is just an incident where you have not needed to claim, because the bike was recoverded.

We could do with some help from you.

As a extra note to the comments above, I had a bike stolen which had being fitted with a tracker, I notified the police soon as realised it had been taken/stolen, there gave me report/theft crime number and left it at that, explaining that the bike was fitted with a tracker what could be done, officer stated police didn't have the resources to follow up on bike theft, We ourselves kept track of where the bike was every day for three weeks, informing the police all the time of the bikes where about's, STILL the police didn't bother to act.... The bike was then moved across the border into another police forces borough, and low and behold soon as I contacted that police force, there visited me and took all the details, within 3 hours that force had gone and got the bike back, the person that stole the bike was well known within the forces area, and had a zero tolerance policy on bike theft, where MY OWN police force borough didn't care at all... At the start I contacted my insurance company, who placed a maker on my claim that there was a chance the bike could be recovered and this was to just to report the theft NOT a actual claim been made as yet. On getting the bike recovered, I again contacted my insurance company, and there closed the case with no claim made, and my following years premium hasn't increased....
