    • agree with all that HB, but biden certainly didn't excel, and difficult as that is with a garbage spouter like the bean stain coloured Trump, it is what he needs to be able to not just handle - but show up as the spoiling garbage it is. Grown ups don't win by allowing spoiled children free reign in their tantrums.   Admittedly the host failed miserably, but Bidens preparedness was clearly sadly lacking.  
    • Good morning I've attached the reply I've received from Marquis in response to my letter of claim.I would like to add a few things that I consider important. I first reported the heater fault on August 3rd. That was the 42 day since purchase, but Marquis had had the van for 12 days so the clock stops as I understand it so it was the 30th day which means that the fault was present when it was sold. They had had one chance to repair and failed to investigate any further. I think the cost that they are refusing to pay are more than reasonable. An offer of a tank of diesel world have settled part of it.   And they are definitely not getting a copy of my bank statement   Although I am sure that I'm not obliged to use the Warranty provided I've been reading my Warranty document and it says it's administered by "A1 guarantee ltd "and they are who I should ring to make a claim.The email address to make a complaint is a "global ins" email. i find it very confusing as in the front of the schedule it says "This guarantee is a non-insured product, any obligation to repair your motorhome will be our sole responsibility. Should we cease to trade, then this product will no longer be valid"

    • I’m in desperate need of help
       
      I bought some clothes online in may through Evans and paid through PayPal
      returned them all seven days later
       
      I waited the 14days for my refund and no refund came
      I put in a dispute through PayPal but I didn’t get any emails to escalate the case - PayPal closed it. 
      evans said they couldn’t refund the money because PayPal have cancelled the refund because of the open dispute
       
      I contacted PayPal
      they said the dispute had been closed but Evans at no point had attempted a refund.
      fast forward to today
       
      I’ve got copies of numerous messages sent to and from twitter messages as it’s the only way I can contact them
      I’ve also contacted their customer service too
      all I get is PayPal have cancelled refund because dispute is still open.
       
      I have proved that the dispute is closed
      I have got an email saying that if Evans sent the refund they would accept it
      but up until the date I got the email they have not once attempted a refund .
       
       I have sent them a letter before court email
      I have even offered to have the full refund as a gift card just to get this sorted !
       
      I’m literally at the end of my tether and don’t know where to turn next !
       
      i suffer with mental health issues and this is affecting my health and I’d saved the money for a year to buy these clothes as I’m on a low income .

Hello

 

I was in arrears with business rates to Rushcliffe Council but entered into a repayment arrangement with them.

 

It ran a bit late but I did make all the payments.

 

Just after we had made the last payment we received a letter from Bristow & Sutor seeking the payment and a fee.

 

I tried to use their web system to advise them of the debt having been paid but it did not recognize me.  I then sent an email to the only email address I could find for them which happended to be their MD or similar high position, trusting to luck that he would forward it to the right department of his firm.

 

A few weeks ago a Bristow and Sutor Bailiff came on site to collect the arrears and their fee.

 

I advised him it was all paid up and we did a hands free call with the Council Finance department who agreed that our account was up to date with no arrears and could not explain to the Bailiff why he was sent.  He then went away empty handed.

 

I have recently received a letter from Bristow and Sutor demanding their fee.

 

I take the view that as I have paid and without the intervention of B&S that no fee is due.

 

Can anyone advise me on any next steps and in particular what to do or say to the B&S agent if they call again?

 

In particular what are my rights in preventing him from seizing goods to pay his fee if he should try that?

 

Many thanks

Ask the council when and why the account was sent to the bailiff

We could do with some help from you.

"Dear Sirs

 

You recently instructed Bristow and Sutor to pursue us for unpaid business rates.

 

Please advise me of the date this instruction was passed to them.

 

Many thanks"

The situation regarding when fees can be charged is. The first fee(compliance) of £75, is due from the moment the Bailiff receives the court order from the creditor.

 

The enforcement fee of £235 is due on the first visit to your premises.

 

It sounds to me like you paid the remainder of the sum due to the creditor in the period between them sending the order, and BS processing it.

 

You need to continue with the creditor. Put this scenario to them, they should really remove the fee.

Thank you for your post.

 

In post 2 Brassnecked suggested I write to the Council which I did.

 

I had a reply from them only very recently where they said they had recalled the account from the Bailiff.

 

The Bailiff having visited was, prior to this intervention, seeking £75 not the higher figure.

 

At the present time it seems the Council has intervened and my problem is over.

 

Thanks to all.

I would like to add to this thread.

 

Unbelievably the Bailiff returned and attempted to take his fees again.   At that time I was with my fellow director and we confronted him and told him that under no circumstances were we paying him anything and that he was on a hiding to nothing.

 

At one point he tried to enter into a payment plan with us (for a relatively trivial amount of the fee!!), such was his desperation.

 

He then went away giving us 24 hours!?

 

I wrote to the council again this time as a formal complaint.

 

The bailiff phoned back a few days later to see if we had changed our minds.  I told him we had complained to the council about both the claim and the poor Bristow and Sutor Website.  He said, "OK as long as you are not ignoring it" .

 

The council responded with an apology and said that once again they had called off B&S.

 

We have heard nothing since.

 

I presume that this is finally it but you never know.

Looks like Bristols & Stupor are lapsing to their pre 2014 muppetry. Hopefully all is resolved now the council have intervened again.

There was a recent ruling where the judge criticised the bailiff for being to keen to enforce, and not bothering to check if the judgement/lo had been paid. Cant remember the citation at the mo.
