    • I think that rather than right, you should first of all telephone. However read our customer services guide. Implement the advice there. Then telephone and have a conversation which leads round to the loan and whatever agreement there might have been to repay. Get it recorded. Then write to him and asked him to confirm the telephone conversation. If he confirms it then you are on your way. If he doesn't confirm it or denies it then it becomes even more interesting and I think that you will properly have you more leverage. You say that you believe that you lent the money to the company and that the company has now sold. As long as the company has been sold and not dissolved then the loan to the company is still current and the company debt to you is still current. I think the first senior to do is to get the evidence – and I think you should follow the advice that I have given. The fact that the person has stopped contacting you is extremely troubling. The fact that the company ownership was transferred is even more troubling and so I think that you are dealing with somebody who is trying to be slippery about this – and so your way forward is clearly that you also have to act it in a slippery way. Come back here when you got the evidence and we will help you to the next step
    • Met usually use ANPR and get the timings massively wrong so they will be timed out. they must have used CCTV to watch the vehicle occupants "leave" and this is probably a breach of the GDPR as it wont be one of the specified reasons on their licence to spy on people so will breach protocols 1, 2 , 3 and possibly others in the list of the 8 main protocols of data protection.   It also breached the POFA as the timings are wrong so no keeper liability anyway.   The wording they use refers to the liklihood of the issuing of a NTD and thet never happened so the 56 day limit isnt applicable. My advice? ignore them as they rarely do court because they know they are incompetent
    • sorry, I meant to say UNLESS  so yes my answer reads the wrong way round
    • the terms in the contract will in many cases be unfair and thus you will be entitled to the bonus and there is case law on this. However, it is not a simple matter to resolve as it will have to take into account what the contract says and what the normal practice and expectations are for the bonus scheme. For example, Jhn Lewis pays out to anyone employed there on the relevant date so leave the day before and you lose out becasue it is a partnership and you would no longer be a partner. No schemes that withold bonuses until a certain time of the year MAY have to pay out but if your bonus is for the quarter that your resignation fell in then probably not. If it was for say Oct-Dec then you will ahve fulfilled the requirements of a qualifying period regardless of the contract saying no bonus and would more than likely be successful in a claim to recover such monies. A scheme that has been running for soem time would be part of yoru contract even if there is nothing specific included in your paperwork as it becomes implied as part of the conditions you agreed to when joining to co and staying there.   i know this doesnt give you a definite answer but hopefully makes it a little easier to see how your situation may work out
    • You have a big problem and that is proving the debt. for a debt to be created there must be an agreement that the money will be repaid, how and in what time frame. As far as the law goes you either gifted the money or loaned it in a way where you cant take civil action to recover it because there are no explicit terms. Now the BUSINESS doe owe you £2k and the debt will have passed on to the new owners but you still cant take steps to recover the money other than to ask the new business owners for it. They may deny the debt and you will be impossibly placed to prove it because there is nothing in writing. Proof of money transfer doesnt prove the debt exists nor how it should be repaid even if it did. you will lose a court claim due to the lack of paperwork showing how and when the repayment should take place. Sorry for your predicament but you are where you are

Hello Everyone



In essence.


I bought a car, pre-registered by a franchised dealer though with delivery mileage and so considered a used-approved car by them. The cost was £70000


The car developed a transmission whine within the the first 35 miles or so.


Dealer asked me to keep using the car a wee while longer and 'drive-it-in', though they booked in the car for 2 weeks or so hence. This I did for close to the two weeks then the car needed recovering as it had broken down (loose HT Lead they said)


There kept the car to investigate the whining. And provided me with different loan cars then finally a car identical to mine and yes...with the same problem but way worse!


They invited me to drive other cars of the same year and model..new ones from the forecourt. these too made the same sound! They fobbed me off with it being a 'feature of the car'...feature it may be but its a whine that exists when the car is in gear and at certain speeds and not at all when allowed to free-wheel


Car was investigated using diagnostics provided by the manufacturer and this took...14 weeks. the car was then returned to the manufacturer for further investigation. after 2 more weeks I decided to reject the car. Its been too long and Im in limbo


No faith in the brand nor its customer services.


I invoked my short-term right to reject, as the clock 'stops' once the car is returned to the dealership


There have been many discussions with the dealership. they aren't keen on emails nor recording what is said, nor referring to my emails in written replies.


I have asked for my money back or reasons wy they aren't paying.


And that I will not be taking any further calls...email only


The dealer has now stated that they have not accepted my rejection. That I must 'work with them' ..that old reply...Ive maintained the same stance of rejection and the reasons why, and used their own warranty guarantee...which is really a copy and paste of Consumer Act .


If they don't accept it...it ant happen!!


Any members here with a dynamic way to punch through their nonsense??


Oh..the car, is miraculousl now cured...with a clip apparently...its an issue which dogs hundreds of these cars..its on many forums. Im a consumer champion!!,,,no... Seems Im just being 'picky' haha

No. Never had the car back

First 13 weeks with dealer then a month at the factory. Factory have told dealer that it's an easy fix...only a clip. But I've already rejected the car and have no desire firnits return it to have a test drive or see how I feel about it now as the dealer would have wished.etc etc


Every 67 plate of this that I have expeenced has the same fault. I wonder how many others have made complaint.
