    • yes only court...   can I confirm this was settled via Barclaycard and chargeback as it was a debit card, rather than section 75 via a creditcard?  
    • Hi   Sorry for the delay in getting back to you don't worry we have not forgot you.   So they have destroyed ALL DATA personal to you as you did not take the Property. (really they have put there foot in it)   If they hold no personal data then they have NO evidence of what was agreed to with your Holding Deposit and the refusal to return it.   Now if it was me I would let them drop themselves in it even further by responding to there SAR response.   Thank you for your SAR Response dated XX/XX/2019   Due to this response I require clarification of the following:   1. Have you followed the Data Protection Act 2018 & General Data Protection Regulations on Destroying My Personal Data?   2. If you have Destroyed All My Personal Data then what documentation do you hold that I have signed/agreed to the Holding Deposit being Non-Refundable and to provide copies of this documentation.   3. I require a copy of your Policy on Holding Deposits   Please bear in mind the above is what I would do.   I do think it is looking like you may have to go down the court route (make sure and have a good read of that link I previously gave you to the Tenants Fee Act).
    • HI   Firstly the parking in front of your drive, do you have a pavement with a Drop Kerb in front of your property to access your driveway, if so are they infringing on the Drop Kerb? (note your can ask the council to to paint a white line with lines at the end on the road in front of the drop kerb please note there may be a cost from the council to do so)   As for the CCTV look at this ICO link: https://ico.org.uk/your-data-matters/domestic-cctv-systems-guidance-for-people-using-cctv/   Due to the new DPA/GDPR if you have CCTV on your Property and it views outside of that Properties Bounderies they then need to register as a Data Controller with the ICO.   So I would make a Formal Complaint in writing to the Councils Data Controller, ICO (specifically asking if this individual is Registered with them as a Data Controller) & Police, you need to keep a good paper trail of this individuals actions.   I hope this individual knows the Law on Harassment as from your thread that is the impression I get is no matter what you do they will find something else to complaint about.  
    • Most guarantees are not transferable anyway to the new owner so why a solicitor should request it is pointless.The quotes should suffice to prove the work was carried out.   Andy
    • Apologies for the prolonged radio silence!   To cut a very long story short, I went back to Barclaycard (because I bought the car with my VISA card) and they offered to repair the car at a cost of £2500.   We accepted the offer because we were advised that even if we went to court and won the case, there was no guarantee that the dealer would give us our money back anyway or would end up paying us £10 a week for the next umpteen years.   The decision to have the car repaired was also made in the light of the fact that apart from the gearbox issue the rest of the car was in good nick. It is running fine after nearly 4 months now, so even if our friend gets a few more years out of it it will have been worth it.   Now that it is all settled I can reveal the name of the dealer - it was Thatcham Motor Company, in Thatcham, Berks. Very pleasant to deal with at first whilst everything was ok but boy oh boy, beware if anything goes wrong!   Similarly Momentum Warranties who provided the 6 months "warranty". On paper this warranty apparently covers practically every conceivable fault that the car might develop until you try to make a claim!   It seems that only if a component physically breaks that any cover is provided, otherwise they will hide behind the "fair wear and tear" get-out clause. Can an ECU unit be subject to wear and tear?   I would not touch either of these outfits again with the proverbial barge pole. Buyer beware!   One further thing I forgot to mention. We ran up considerable expenses trying to sort all the issues - the engineer's reports, travel costs etc.   Is it too late to try to claim these back from the dealer now? I just ran out of energy by the time Barclaycard agreed to pay for the repair but now the dust has settled I am up for it again!   Would this have to be done via the Small Claims Court?

Forgive me if I'm rambling, but can someone point me to some advice about power of attorney.

 

My aunt has vascular dementia and her faculties are not good. She has issues with her short term memory and now long term is starting to be affected.

 

My wife and I have been looking after her for the last 14 years, but the dementia has only been over the last year.

 

Auntie owns a cottage and a small amount of land. We are now having issues with her step family - they're all coming out of the wood work and you can probably guess why.

 

We've finally got her gp to diagnose the dementia and are taking her to the dementia liaison service tomorrow.

 

We're hoping she will understand that she has dementia and we want to take steps to ensure she is being taking cared of properly and not going to be taken advantage of.

HI.

 

I'm sorry to hear about Auntie, dementia is a horrible disease. I hope the liaison service can point you in the direction of what to do.

 

The same happened with my mother, luckily the carers called in a special mental health unit and a psychiatrist made the diagnosis which the Court of Protection accepted.

 

Did Auntie sign a Lasting Power of Attorney or are you starting from scratch?

 

By the way, some of the most helpful advice I had was from the local Age UK office, they were really good.

Thanks Honeybee,

 

I've just got off the phone to her solicitors, so its on their radar now.

 

We have a bit of a plan, but it depends on the outcome of tomorrow's appointment. If it goes well and she understands that there is a problem, then we can suggest that her solicitor comes out to visit her - to check things are ok and to have a general chat.

 

If it goes the other way and it's deemed that she is too far down the line to make a concious decision, then the alternative is via the courts with a deputy arrangement, can't remember what the solicitor called it.

 

We moved near to her in early 2000's when she had a major operation to look after her, it's just the last couple of years, with the last few months in particular (sorry just feeling it bit as I'm typing). She wrote a pantomime when she was a head teach in the 70's and she gave it to my drama group to do. She can't even remember who wrote it now.

 

My wife is the main beneficiary in her will, which was done over 10 years ago, so we have no issues and just want to do whats best for her and keep those who are coming out of the woodwork just because she is nearing the end of her life.

 

Sorry I'm rambling, but this is the only way I can express myself.

If your aunt hasn't made a power of attorney and you are starting from scratch the GOV.UK advice is a good starting point.

 

 

https://www.gov.uk/power-of-attorney

 

 

One key point is that your aunt can only make a power of attorney now if she still has mental capacity. It might be worth discussing that with the dementia liaison service. See also the bit about certificate providers.

 

 

If she no longer has sufficient mental capacity to make a Lasting Power of Attorney herself I'm afraid it's rather more complicated. You would need to apply to the Court of Protection to be appointed her 'Deputy'.

Hi borisbeaver,

 

I made my last post before yours had appeared, but looks like what I said is same as what your solicitor has said. The question of whether your aunt still has the mental capacity to make a Lasting Power of Attorney is the key to what you can do next.

 

She has made a Will, which is good. Just be aware that Wills and Power of Attorney are completely separate things. A Power of Attorney lapses at the point the 'donor' - your aunt - dies. The authority to manage your aunt's financial affairs, if she gives you a pwer of attorney, only lasts while she is alive. When she dies that authority passes to Executors of her Will. You say your wife is the beneficiary under the Will, but who are the Executors?

A deputy appointed by the Court of Protection.
