Sounds typical, they always try this! Personally I would start by sending an SAR request under GDPR rules that requests the managing Estate Agent to disclose everything relating to your son, emails phone calls, everything. This is to enable you to find out what's really going on with them. Dollars to dime they won't have a clue how to comply, the words GDPR strike fear into the hearts of everyone. It's a great lever to find out if they are lying to you, probably under threat of you reporting to the ICO they will back down. Or if they do comply you can pull them to pieces, there is always something they didn't do properly or comply with. Source * I did exactly the same thing and they backed down.
Hi friends, On your advice, I had written a letter and posted to Gladdy's. They have come back with a reply and I have attached the response. Can you pls advise way forward as they are still threatening legal action.
The difficulty you face with that line of reasoning is that the presence of a system of street lighting (spaced at no more than 200 yards) bestows a default 30mph limit. Only if that default is to be modified are small "repeaters" necessary. In fact it is not permissible to install 30mph repeaters where there are streetlights and the default applies. Street lighting is an important part of speed limit provision. Case law has determined that the lights themselves provide notice of the limit (making the stretch a "restricted" road) and it is no defence if, say, one gap is 201 yards or if one or all of the lights are inoperable. Courts have also ruled that it does not matter if the terminal signs (which you contend are inadequate) are obscured by, say vegetation thus making your contention unlikely to cut the mustard. A simple rule for street lighting is that it denotes a 30mph limit unless you see repeaters to the contrary (you will not see repeaters showing 30). Where there is no street lighting the default is the National Speed Limit unless you see repeaters to the contrary. +1 (though I do not accept that the penalty is an "unofficial tax!).
Update email today, can someone let me know if you think I need to respond.... My understanding is that this complaint is about the mis-sale of Short Term Lending . Please tell me if I’ve missed something, or if you have anything to add at this point. My role as an adjudicator is to give an independent opinion on the complaint. This means I’ll talk to you and the business, weigh up the facts of what’s happened, and then suggest a fair way to resolve the situation. In most cases, we find a solution at this stage. This might be agreeing how the business should put things right – or sometimes that the business has already acted in a reasonable way. But if either you or the business disagree with what I say, we can review the complaint and tell you our final decision. Thanks .
This is a bit of a lengthy one but I’ll summerise best as possible.
THIS IS HOW THE PHONECALL WENT
I was contacted by future comms by phone, they stated that they could beat any phone contract I have , (I am a limited company but just myself that needs a business phone and I am the only worker)
I told future comms my deal, £110 per month with a phone and a virtual landline, they confirmed that they could beat that, £90 per month with a phone , virtual landline they also confirmed they would pay Vodafone (previous provider) the termination fee. As I am in business, naturally I was open to making a deal. So we proceeded.
Future comms then revealed that the contract would be with PLAN.COM and the airtime would be provided by 02, I instantly told them that this would break the deal as I have poor 02 signal in the house where I live as my partner is on 02 and constantly complaining about bad signal
the salesman assured me he would send a signal booster box out with the phone so I would have perfect signal.
so far so good.....
i then explained this is the only mobile phone I use for business and pleasure, so therefore I didn’t want any disconnection time in the slightest between the switchover from Vodafone to 02
the salesman then confirmed that the existing phone would only be disconnected once the new phone was switched on.
so far so good....

Hot news for anyone who has suffered mortgage arrears charges, irresponsible lending or other unfair lender conductThe FSA has announced large fines against DB UK Bank Limited (trading as DB Mortgages) - DeutscheBank and also against Redstone for their unfair treatment of their customers.
Please see the links below for summaries and full details from the FSA website.
It is now completely clear that any arrears charges which exceed actual administrative costs are unfair and therefore unlawful.
Furthemore, irresponsible lending practices are also unfair and unlawful.
Additionally there are other unfair practices including unarranged counsellor visits - even if they have been attempted.
You are entitled to refuse counsellor visits and not incur any charges.
Any charges for counsellor visits must not seek to make profits. The cost of the visits must be passed on to you at cost price.
We are hearing stories of people being charged for counsellor visits for which there is no evidence that they were even attempted.
It is clear that some mortgage lenders are trying to cheat you out of your money.
You should ascertain how much has been taken from you and claim it back. The chances of winning are better than 90%. It is highly likely that the lender will attempt to avoid court action and offer you back your money.
However, you should ensure that you receive a proper rate of interest and this means that you should be seeking at least restitutionary damages - which would be much higher than the statutory 8%.
Furthermore, you should assess whether the paying of demands for unlawful excessive charges has also out you further into arrears and if this has caused you further penalties in terms of extra interest or any other prejudice. This should be claimed as well.
If excessive unlawful charges have resulted in your credit file being affected, then you should take this into account also when working out exactly what you want by way of remedy from the lender.
You should consult others on these forums when considering any offer.
You must not make any complaint through the Ombudsman. your time will be wasted, you will wait up to 2 yrs and there will be a minimal 8% award of interest and no account will be taken of any other damage you have suffered.
You must make your complaint through the County Court for a rapid and effective remedy.
Do you have a mortage arears claim to make? Then post your story on the forum here
