    • 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?

false advert wedding dress

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I tried a wedding dress on, in a store and then placed an order for it.  I paid £800 deposit.  The dress arrived late although still in time for the wedding.  However, it was completely sub-standard compared to the original.  The store hid the original so I could not make an accurate comparison, but I knew something was seriously wrong.  The fabric, the cut, the length, the amount of fabric, the trail were all sub-standard and costs had been cut.

I applied for a tribunal in order to get my money back, but the store keeps changing the location of the court.  Initially the case went to Basingstoke County Court, the store requested it transfer to East London, and now it has transferred again to Central London.  The store seems to keep having papers transferred court to court, in order to prevent a hearing.

Please can someone advise what I can do to stop this and ensure a hearing takes place.

Thank you,

Sy1

If the claim is private individual against business, the case should be heard in your local court.

Did you buy the dress under a business name or your own individual name?

Hi,

 

It is a small claims court and I am a private individual against a business.  So, if I request a certain court, will the business and owner be unable to transfer it anywhere else?

 

Thank you,

 

Sy

As far as i know that's the rule.

So i don't understand how the business has managed to move court without your consent. 

Others might have an answer.

All litigants whether claimant or defendant.....  when made against a business are dealt with at the litigants local county court.

 

Once all parties have filed their questionnaire the case will be transferred to the mediator /
local court to continue. If you are making a claim against an individual, the claim will be
transferred to their local court. If you are making a claim against a company, the claim will be
transferred to your local court, or to your solicitor’s local court.
You can search for your local
county court using the following website: http://hmctscourtfinder.justice.gov.uk.

in short tell the court you want the hearing at wherever is best for you and make sure they undersatnd that you are suing a business so the procedure is that it goes to your local court. If the named defendant is for example Ms X  rather than Ms X trading as flo's dresses the confusion is simple to make
