    • Hi Thanks for your reply. I have discussed this with citizens advice and they have taken details of the builder and reported them to trading standards who will take appropriate action. The builders claim that as the draft contract was sent over by email and I had time to think it over before deciding there is no cooling off period in this case.   When sending the draft contract they do not cover any details relating to cancellation rights or any of the details required in the legislation above as they are claiming it should be treated as 'on premises' and therefore my consumer rights do not exist.   I prefer not to give their name on a public forum at the moment but they are certainly not making my life easy at the moment. They are threatening to sue me for breach of contract if i do not pay up in 14 days.
    • Hi all, was a bit busy with my friends witness statement. It is my understanding that none of Assets ppl will attend the hearing pursuant to CPR 27.9 (1)(a). I'm not sure do my mate will be ready to go as he fall in deep depression, lost his interest in life and do not communicate at all now. Ok, there is the WS attached. Thanks DX for advice, I found some good ones here. No names stated in case someone from claimants side reading this. Will be appreciated for any advises and corrections. Thank you in advance.       WS.docx
    • Ok thanks DX, so i reclaim these charges and default sum fee's Then I guess once/if this is settled and they hopefully refund these charges then I need to make a repayment plan arrangement with them.   I think i need to move quickly as they have mentioned legal action which they said would involve property repossesion (so they stated anyway!)
    • Wrongly. I suggest that you post the drafts of the documents you are preparing to send or to file here before you actually do so. You've waited this long, another 24 hours won't make a big difference. You may as well get it right
    • Please will you tell us the name of the builders.  http://www.legislation.gov.uk/uksi/2013/3134/regulation/29/made lays out the circumstances in which you lose your right to cancel and off premises contract. I don't see anything here which says that you are not entitled to use the 14 day cooling off period. I suggest that you email the building immediately and ask him on what basis he says that you are not entitled to a cooling off period. Tell him that if he will not explain this to you then you will not engage in any further communication with him. In any event, and off premises contract must contain at least the following information – meaning that the supplier of the services must provide you with the following information http://www.legislation.gov.uk/uksi/2013/3134/schedule/2/made     Please check your contract and any other messages you have received on paper or by email and see whether together it can be said that you are provided all of this information. If you were not provided with this information then the cooling period doesn't even begin to run. To all intents and purposes the contract is not complete yet. On the basis of the dates that you have provided to us it would appear that you have exercise your right to cancel just within the 14 day period and so therefore your cancellation is good. It seems to me on the basis of what you have told us that you are being bullied and browbeaten by these people. If it is correct that they haven't given you any details about the right to cancel then they are potentially committing an offence and once they have explain to you why you don't have the benefit of a cooling off period, you could then reply to them and warn them that by failing to include all of the information in schedule two – but particularly information as to the right to cancel, they are committing an offence. http://www.legislation.gov.uk/uksi/2013/3134/regulation/19/made   Once you are satisfied that you are on secure ground, I would suggest that you write and tell them to do the other thing and that you will be happy to see them in court where you are sure that the judge will be very interested also to see the way they have behaved against you. Please let us know the name of the builders and also once you are sure of your ground I suggest that you start putting reviews up on trust pilot and Google and elsewhere.

I would think if you can go to college you shouldn't have too many problems attending an interview at McDonalds, when you applied I take it you were going to go to the interviews but changed your mind a short time before.

How are you looking for jobs to apply for? There are websites that can make it easier.

 

I'd have thought KFC wouldn't be too bothered about your age and everybody has to start somewhere.

I'm afraid that this poster has been banned multiple times on other sites for serious abuse of other posters. This exact same post and user name was on another site earlier this week but has now disappeared - given the abuse that had already occurred on that thread and that fact, I assume they have been banned again.

 

I have never been clear whether they are mentally ill or a troll, but either way, they need help. My advice to them is to seek that help elsewhere in the real world.

um i don't think that should matter. I should not have been banned from that site anyway because they are unfair to people with metal health issues

Lets not dwell on other sites. If it happens here, then admin can deal with it. Until then....

 

OP, is there a reason you were scared to go to maccies? because supermarket etc interviews are usually a little tougher as some do a personality test. Where maccies usually hire if you make the interviewer smile and get on well with them.

well i was worried what people would think a person my age 26 working at mcdonalds for their first job and because I need to go to some uni open days to decide which one to pick how they would feel about letting a 26year old man off for that and if they would tease me :sad::-(

maccys are very good.

i know a 34yrs old that had never worked in his life.

he's now thanks to them supporting him in the in between years there inc uni etc running his own business that he'd always dreamed of doing.

 

'people' there will not know your history unless you tell them.

and whats discussed with your manager doesn't go down the line unless you blab to co-workers.

Have you considered Access To Work? https://www.gov.uk/access-to-work

 

They do have links to organisations which specifically deal with mental health conditions in the workplace (Remploy is one that immediately springs to mind) and may be able to help in getting you a new job or may be able to give advice or support for a job interview.

 

We all have to start somewhere and most decent employers will look favourably on someone who wants to better themselves, even if 'bettering yourself' is having a reason to get out of bed in the morning to start with. I'm also sure your voluntary experience will come in handy.

 

Good luck in your job venture.

If I were an employer id rather employ someone who wants to work and better themselves even if its their 1st job @26 than some other 26 year old who has had multiple jobs only lasting months.

they don't need to know until you hand in your notice. Fast food places expect a lot of staff to be with them for just six months.


Never assume anyone on the internet is who they say they are. Only rely on advice from insured professionals you have paid for!

just fib a little. Say you want to make a go of it and you put as much effort in as possible.

 

You get the job, and the first they know about you leaving is when you hand in your notice a week before you leave

kitchen hygiene, following a process, demonstrating reliability, customer service, team work

 

the reliability, team work and the customer service will be useful in almost every other job
