    • That’s brilliant thanks for all the info, enjoy your evening.   Yeah, that makes a lot of sense about the F&F, definitely something worth considering to lower the amount of communications to deal with.   It’s good to know that newer debts can also be missing the documents needed, sounds more hopeful.   Thank you    
    • You are receiving what you bargained for / accepted, for both contracts (site access & tent). Did you book the tent for 4 nights, knowing you could only use 3. if the tent had been available for 3 nights only: you could have contracted for that. if it wasn’t, and your choice was “pay for 4 nights, get 3 nights use” or “don’t book” - you made your choice, and agreed a contract.   They are now offering others more, but provided you are receiving what you contracted for and no less, you don’t have a cause of action.   If you might get the extra tent night free, but only if you pay the access fee : you are still no worse off!   if you want to get “more value” from the tent contract : consider paying the site’s early access fee. If you choose not to you’ll still get what you originally contracted for so aren’t actually worse off, even if you feel slighted.
    • Hi,    I'm not sure if this is the correct forum for the following, and am looking for a general consensus or thoughts on whether i have cause to take action or not?  It's long winded but I've tried to be as concise as possible with the facts of the matter.    We booked a festival ticket for an event running from Friday to Monday, in addition we booked via a separate 3rd party company a luxury tent in that companies camp site within the festival. This was at a considerable cost.    Sometime after the purchase of the festival ticket, the organisers announced acts for the Thursday night and an early entry ticket for that night at a reduced cost.     We are not in a position to purchase an early access ticket, as we're unable to change our plans.  On the festival forum those who had purchased an early access ticket for Thursday entry questioned whether they would be able to have an extra night in the luxury tents, otherwise what would they do? The festival organisers said they would be able to. However when we queried the 3rd party they explicitly stated their site was not available on Thursday and would only be open Friday to Monday.  A number of other people reported the same response.   It was on that understanding that we did not actively try to make arrangements that would have allowed us to purchase an early access ticket.    Then all of a sudden the 3rd party changed its position and an email was received to say anyone booked into the 3rd party site would have a free night on Thursday if they had paid the festival organisers the small amount for the early access ticket.    It doesn't seem at all fair some can benefit from this, and some cannot, and I've no problem with anyone who does benefit.    I've messaged the 3rd party and they maintain the terms and conditions haven't changed, they've just added an extra free night that anyone with an early access ticket can take advantage of. This was not the case at the point of sale, because if it was we would have made arrangements to take advantage, instead we were only made aware after they changed their minds to permit this, and we're now not in a position to benefit.    I believe the terms and conditions have changed, and as a consequence I'm paying for a 4 night luxury Tent, and only receiving 3 nights.     I believe it is reasonable to receive either a refund for one night based on the cost now covering 4 nights, or a free night, and a refund of the cost of one night based on the original total of the 3 night contract.    Am i right or being stupid?   Thank you. 
    • Scotland - I know there are some differences when compared with England around statute barred, there may be others I'm not aware of so hopefully someone else is keeping and eye and will correct anything that is said.   I've plans this evening with the fam, so this may be rushed and I might miss something. Given you have so many accounts in different stages, it will be difficult to dig into each individually but the same will apply for all and we will get there   Priority debts are essentially anything that keeps a roof over your head. Anything consumer credit (CC, loan, store cards etc) are NOT priority debts.   Yes, that's what I meant, but really I just mean you will have choices with some saved in the bank. It makes sense on smaller accounts that you offer F&F to clear them IF they aren't already defaulted as it will just lower the amount of communications you will start getting - BUT defaulted debts will show on your credit record and affect you whether you pay them off or not, 6 years from the default, then they will disappear (could be 5 in Scotland, not sure)   You're quite correct that the older the debt, the more likely the paperwork is missing, but some of mine were very new (2020/21 also) and they couldn't provide the documentation..   Lets start here:   -  lower the pro rata on all to £1 (don't provide any income & expenditure info) -  CCA Request to each company that has bought the debt from OC (the last letter from OC will state they've been sold to xxxx) -  get access to credit file -  Forget your morals, they have none   For those debts already showing in default on your credit file and have been sold, you can stop paying entirely until you receive a complete CCA from them   I'll be back later   BT
    • Just a question out of curiosity. What will happen when the 6 years pass since all this began. By this I mean my moving out of the property and all that has followed? From what I can remember I definitely moved out either May or Jun 2016, as my dob is May and I moved out soon after celebrating it. So what will happen when 6 years pass, could someone please explain? Thank you 😊

If people don't watch live TV, on the TV Licencing website there is a page (quite well hidden), where there is a declaration that can be filled out stating that a licence is not required because of reasons a,b,c,d etc.  

 

Once this is done, they leave you alone for 2 years, but ask you to notify of any change before the 2 years is up.

 

If you don't do this, they hassle you.

 

The inspectors have a sneaky tactic of knocking gently on your front doors, so you think it could be a friend or neighbour. People then up open up the doors and are caught watching live TV.

 

 

We could do with some help from you.

Never paid never will, I have a box folder full of their computer generated threat letters, there's about five in total which are simply sent out at intervals, occasionally they change the font and colour and send a completely different format, but they all result in the exact same reaction, file away for a rainy day.

Who ever heard of someone getting a job at the Jobcentre? The unemployed are sent there as penance for their sins, not to help them find work!

They are so useless. For years , in our old house TV licencing were convinced we were 2 separate houses. Despite having paid our TV licence, we constantly received threats under the previous name of the property to pay up, face fines, prosecution etc etc. 

 

I rang and wrote to them to explain, but still the silly threats rolled in, nobody ever came to visit.  I was actually quite looking forward to actually explaining in person what idiots they actually were.

We could do with some help from you.

Just engage with them. If you should have a license, you really ought to buy one. I haven't had a TV License for years, don't need one, never watch TV.

Fill out the disclaimer on the TVL Website and you are OK for two years. Never had anyone check.

CEASE AND DESIST HARASSMENT

Dear Ms Doubtfire,

This is notice to you to cease and desist your continued harassing activities against and towards me concerning TV licensing.

TV licensing has already been informed to the fact I have no legal requirement for a TV license and I do not accept that I am obliged to repeatedly update you of my circumstances unless they meaningfully change.

The absence of any update after any time period does not give you cause to begin again your campaign of harassment, a position I am willing to submit to court.

I have kept a record of each harassing communication you have sent me.

If TV licensing continue to harass me after any time period I reserve the right to bring a claim under the Protection from Harassment Act 1997 without further reference to you.

Sincerely,

Whomever is prepared to bring a claim.
