    • Hi Honeybee Yes that's the one - many thanks. I did try and update it late last night but it said I had to contact site owners so I gave up and went to bed! In the end after no contact/updates from the solicitors the sale went through very quickly so I presume that didn't give the council sufficient time to swing into action.   Thanks
    • I tried to post an update on an earlier thread without success. Long story short. The house sale has taken place [title deeds had a charge against property] Restriction said 'No disposition of the registered estate is to be completed by registration without a certificate signed by the applicant or his conveyancer that written notice of the disposition was given to [name of council]. Exchange and completion within a couple of days. I've not heard anything from either solicitors involved on this point nor the council so not sure of the purpose / effectiveness of the charge as it doesn't seem to have held up the sale. Perhaps I'll get a bill next month?? Has anyone had a similar experience?  
    • Hi Hammy1962,    You make a fair point.  Yes, I made a mistake. I fully accept that.    As noted, this was an honest mistake - the DD was coming out of a joint account and I (mistakenly) assumed this was set up by my wife.    What concerns me - and I want to flag to others - is that when I was sold this policy it was not made clear that there is no obligation for D&G to get approval to continue this each year, no need for me to approve any increase to the premium they deduct (which has tripled over the period) or for them to change the policy. I was in effect (with one phone call) writing them a blank cheque when I agreed to this. If I had been clear on that I would have not taken on the policy.    From a business perspective, if one of my customers had presented me with these facts I would have handled it differently too.    Cheers!           
    • So the latest is I have agreed first thing  Monday morning with CCP to make payment by 22nd February. Just received a telephone call from Chartsbridge to make arrangements to collect my vehicle as they have just been instructed by CCP!!!

    • I sent in the bailiffs to the BBC. They collected £350. It made me smile.

    • Hi @BankFodder
      Sorry for only updating you now, but after your guidance with submitting the claim it was pretty straight forward and I didn't want to unnecessarily waste your time. Especially with this guide you wrote here, so many thanks for that
      So I issued the claim on day 15 and they requested more time to respond.
      They took until the last day to respond and denied the claim, unsurprisingly saying my contract was with Packlink and not with them.
       
      I opted for mediation, and it played out very similarly to other people's experiences.
       
      In the first call I outlined my case, and I referred to the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 as the reason to why I do in fact have a contract with them. 
       
      In the second call the mediator came back with an offer of the full amount of the phone and postage £146.93, but not the court costs. I said I was not willing to accept this and the mediator came across as a bit irritated that I would not accept this and said I should be flexible. I insisted that the law was on my side and I was willing to take them to court. The mediator went back to Hermes with what I said.
       
      In the third call the mediator said that they would offer the full amount. However, he said that Hermes still thought that I should have taken the case against Packlink instead, and that they would try to recover the court costs themselves from Packlink.
       
      To be fair to them, if Packlink wasn't based in Spain I would've made the claim against them instead. But since they are overseas and the law lets me take action against Hermes directly, it's the best way of trying to recover the money.
       
      So this is a great win. Thank you so much for your help and all of the resources available on this site. It has helped me so much especially as someone who does not know anything about making money claims.
       
      Many thanks, stay safe and have a good Christmas!

Will My Puppies Make Me Rich?


Recommended Posts

Quote

The RSPCA has written to the BBC to express its concerns over an "irresponsible" documentary about young people breeding puppies for profit.

It said the show, whose working title is Will My Puppies Make Me Rich?, could lead to "serious dog welfare issues".

The BBC said it would not glamorise dog breeding and would "highlight the importance of "good animal welfare".

Producers will "work closely with animal experts", and the title will be changed, the BBC said.

So the animal eugenics industry is starting to come out for what it really is.

And now the programme makers are going to genetically reengineer the name to make it a bit more palatable – Yummy!

The whole thing makes me feel utterly sick.  I don't know what the beeb was thinking.  I can live in hope that the 'documentary' will be a list of proper breeding practices including testing for inherited conditions but I'm not hopeful.

If you don't breed them then there are no inherited conditions. Job done.

People do breed though and the vast majority of puppies produced are not pedigrees.  Those who take the PETA line of being against animal ownership altogether are fighting a losing battle, it’s becoming  more popular not less to have a pet.

When you refer to – people breeding, – I suppose that you really mean animals.

Are you telling me that there are people who breed non-pedigree animals for sale?

And by the way I detect in your post a sense that I may be against the ownership of animals??
