    • 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?
    • no rush yet not due for 3 weeks as per andyorch's information above   i'm sure we'll get time before then.   dx  
    • There is a space for comment on the N180 where you can state that you wish to object to any request by the Claimant for an "on the papers" hearing. I wouldn't worry about the permits term, as the non-display of a permit is not the apparent cause for action against you. Have you sent them a CPR request for documentation?

Just a bit of advice please.

 

My son started Jury Duty today, and has been placed on a Case that is going to last 6 weeks plus. He's worried about his normal job because he has only been working there for 10 Months.

Although it's full time, he is employed through an agency. Can somebody let me know where he stands job wise.

 

Hope this is in the right place.

 

Thanks in advance.

Taking time off work

Give a copy of the letter confirming your jury service to your employer.

Your employer must let you have time off work but can ask you to delay your jury service if your absence will have a serious effect on business.

Wages during jury service

Your employer can choose whether or not to pay you during your service. If they do not you can claim for loss of earnings from the court.

Problems with your employer

You can complain to an employment tribunal if you’re unreasonably refused time off for jury service.

If you’re sacked because you do jury service you may be able to claim unfair dismissal. However, if your employer asks you to delay jury service and you refuse, you may not be able to claim unfair dismissal.

Thank you for your quick reply. I think we are worried a bit more because he has only been there for 10 months, therefore does not have a full contract.

They are fine with him having Jury Duty, but I don't think for a minute they thought the trial can last for over 6 weeks.

Really bad luck that...I have done Jury Service twice now and never had a case last over 2 days

 

Has he actually been selected for this case  or simply been told to be prepared ? In most cases, jury service lasts about two weeks, but given the nature of some criminal cases, this cannot be guaranteed. If a trial is likely to last longer than two weeks,

Jurors will be asked at court if this will be difficult for them.

They took 50 of them upstairs, then narrowed it down to 21, then he filled in a questionnaire He then got took into the Courtroom and was asked if he recognised any of the offenders..

They then narrowed it down to 12 (he is one of them), and 2 on standby.

Well thats normal procedure for the cases...but any case lasting longer than the normal 2 weeks then as per my last post and he should have voiced is concerns.

If they didnt even bother to ask then they have not followed due process.
