    • I only just signed up to vote, I have never voted before, but I've never had a problem accsessing my credit file in previous years, it's like it's just been deleted?    Here's a message from another credit check place I found.   I have just moved in the last month but my bank account, new address etc are all up to date and I literally called everyone when I moved, internet, electric, gas, mobile contract, bank, everyone on the day I moved here,   When trying to get my credit report I use my new and previous addresses.   Here's a message I got ...... Why have I been unable to access my Credit Report? When completing the authentication process for access to your credit report, you will have received one of the following in-product messages to indicate why you have not received access: Thin File This means there is currently not enough credit history information held in your TransUnion file for us to produce a credit report. You can find out more about how to build your credit history in our guides. Not Found If you have not been found by TransUnion, this does not necessarily mean you do not have enough credit history or that you have poor credit history. This simply means that with the details you have provided, TransUnion have been unable to accurately match you to a credit file. Check over the details you have entered and make sure all financial accounts are up to date. If you notice that your Date of Birth, Name or Address have been filled in incorrectly, you can update this information on your account and this will initiate a new search with TransUnion to locate your credit data. Please note, a new search will only be initiated if you change your Date of Birth, Name or Address. Therefore, if you have since updated your information with public bodies or your financial accounts to match your current account information, we will be unable to initiate a new search and you may need to close your account and re-register. Failed If you have failed the authentication process then unfortunately we have been unable to provide you with your credit report. As per TransUnion policy, we are only able to provide customers with two attempts to access their credit file data, after which they will be unable to access their data through our service or receive a TotallyMoney credit report.  
    • I was going to suggest cooperating with her over the letter copies so as to look good in court, but on further consideration BazzaS & SuperVillain are right.   However, to make it easy for the judge and to show her up in court I would tweak the letter and add that this is the third time you've asked so that the expert can be "jointly instructed" and you are anxious to move things on as the two of you are already beyond the court's deadline.    You are writing to her but in a certain sense you're writing "to" the judge and what you are writing needs to be concise and follow the court's instructions - unlike her gibberish.  
    • Is there still chance to submit my defence as it is the 20th final date for submission?
    • you should have entered nothing.   this is why its so important to read instructions and other like threads carefully.    
    • As per 'post 20' you mention you do not file a defence so I entered defence to follow, should I have left blank??

Hi All,

 

At the start of June I ordered some tools from an online seller (Uni-Thread LTD) which were shipped via Royal Mail with an un-recorded next day service. After about 3 weeks* I called the seller to find out what had happened and after some investigation RM tracking said the parcel had been delivered - no signature or any further details.

 

*The reason for the 3 week delay is I didn't get a confirmation email or invoice from the seller, so assumed there had been some error and it had failed to go through. It's only when looking back through my accounts that I saw the money had actually left my account.

 

I've searched all my neighbours who would normally take in parcels and found nothing.

 

The seller is offering a 25% discount if I order again, which I do *sort of* appreciate but am still unhappy about having to pay for these parts twice.

 

What are my rights in this instance? I should mention this was a purchase for tools that my business made, not a personal purchase.

As you probably have guessed, because you contracting as a trader, you have fewer rights than a consumer. A consumer contract would include an implied term that the goods must be delivered in order for the contract to be executed. I'm afraid that it seems that no such term exists for a trade contract and so you would have to look at the terms and conditions or other circumstances to see whether you could imply a term. What kind of value are we talking about here?

 

Did you have a choice of delivery methods? In other words instead of accepting the unrecorded presumably cheaper delivery service which was offered, where you offered some faster or more secure or tracked or insured delivery?

 

It does seem rather strange to me that they organised next day delivery without any tracking information. I think you should check with Royal mail to see whether that is possible.

We aren't talking much - £60 originally and now £45 with the discount.

 

From our phone conversation, the trader uses a franked delivery service and apparently tracking info on this is extremely limited.

 

From what I can ascertain, I can claim £20 compensation from RM for loss of the items, but only if the trader doesn't also do this. I'll still be out of pocket £25, which sucks, but it's better than nothing I suppose.

If the trader claimed money from Royal mail for a failed delivery then he would be obliged to give it to you. I would suggest that you take responsibility for claiming the money back yourself otherwise you won't know what's happening and maybe the trader can't be bothered. They have got their money. Out-of-pocket £25 is a shame but in the circumstances it's probably not worth doing very much about it.

Thanks for the replies, we managed to solve this diplomatically in the end.

 

I responded to the trader's offer by stating if he were to reduce the cost by the £20 he could reclaim from Royal Mail and send via recorded delivery, I would be happier with the outcome.

 

We spoke on the phone this morning and his concern is that he won't be able to reclaim anything due to RM saying it has been delivered (according to their system), so we have met in the middle. I'm still out of pocket £30, but I think that's the best outcome I can expect given the circumstances.
