    • Hi @slick132 apologies for the delay responding.   Letter to the gym (1Life):   "Dear 1Life   RE: Cancellation of memberships ********* & **********   I refer to the aforementioned memberships at 1Life ******* Leisure Centre. We have cancelled our Direct Debit mandates and now realise that we did not provide 30 days’ notice needed. I therefore offer to pay the outstanding £49.98 for the notice period, consisting of £24.99 for ********** and £24.99 for *********.   I will pay no administration or cancellation fees and no further membership amounts. I consider the third parties attempt to charge unlawful penalty unacceptable and unfair to me as a customer. Hence the contract is terminated and we will ignore any further demands. If you confirm in writing that you will accept the amount of £49.98 in full settlement of all that I owe, I will pay you promptly. If you fail to accept my offer within 14 days or you demand any higher amount, I will pay you nothing and my offer will be withdrawn.   Yours Sincerely,"   Letter to DCA (DFC):   "Dear Debit Finance Collections Plc   RE: Notification of Unpaid Direct Debit Payment - Ref No ******** & *********   Further to receipt of emails from yourselves regarding missed payment and late payment charges, I confirm that I will pay no administration or cancellation fees and no further membership amounts. I consider these attempts to charge unlawful penalty unacceptable and unfair to me as a customer. Hence the contracts are terminated and we will ignore any further demands.     Yours Sincerely,"   Interestingly (and more than likely irrelevant) the email response from DFC stated that they wouldn't deal with me regarding my partners membership due to data protection, but then they also named her in the email! Surely a breach of data protection in itself!   Thanks Buddy2015  
    • No...and I really dont know why you sent it to PRA....you have yet to get to disclosure stage of the process.   Link please (post #4)or we really cant advise any further.   Andy
    • Then call them, I asked to speak to a line manager and eventually tell them that you are going to be complaining to the Ministry of Justice. Tell them that they are interfering with the prime objective which is to achieve a just outcome. Read our customer services guide. Make sure they take proper details on the screen notes and make sure that you get the names of the people you are talking to.
    • Thanks for all the replies.   After talking to Northampton it seems it was payment assist.   The original payment left was £88 the rest is literally fees    The situation is now I will clear the balance and payment assist will send me confirmation of payment and will inform the court it's paid   Lesson here is always update your address as it's highly likely I would of fought this claim.   Due to me being non responsive it went into default judgement which was the ccj.   I'll not make this mistake again anytime soon   Thanks for your help!

Hello everyone,

I bought a car on Saturday 19/10 from a dealer for £1100.

He gave me a month guarantee on engine and gear box.

 

I picked it up yesterday because I asked him to have it cleaned and valetted which he agreed and paid for.

When I took the car to my mechanic yesterday he was horrified and said that the car is worth nothing,

I would need to spend hundreds or thousands to get it fixed:

brakes,

the whole exhaust pipe etc etc.

 

I called the dealer and wanted to return it,

I only just picked it up 2 hours before

 

. He said he doesn't do returns and if I return it he will deduct £400!

That's nearly half of what I paid!

 

I have been searching whether there is some trading law that would prevent him from doing that.

 

Does anyone know about consumer rights when you buy a car from a dealer?


Thanks in advance

as long as it passed the MOT they are not dangerous faults so no real reason to return under your short term right to reject.

brakes/exhaust might be on their last legs so your mechanic thinks they will need replacing before next MOT???

 

what the etc etc??

 

will the dealer not fix the issues?
