    • be very wary upon what you see being recently posted on here 😎 regarding KIH.... all is not what it seems...  
    • 1st - all my posts on CAG are made not only in reply to the specific issue the topic starter makes but also in a general matter to advise any future readers upon the related subject - here it is kings interhigh online school. KIH lets take this topic apart shall we so readers know the real situation and the real truth...and underline the correct way to deal with KIH. https://tinyurl.com/ycxb4fk7 Kings Interhigh Online School issues - Training and Apprenticeships - Consumer Action Group - but did not ever reply to the last post.  but the user then went around every existing topic here on CAG about KIH pointing to the above topic and the 'want' to make some form of group  promoting some  'class action' against KIH . then on the 2nd march this very topic this msg is in was created. all remarkably similar eh? all appear to be or state..they are in spain... ....as well as the earlier post flaunting their linkedin ID, (same profile picture) that might have slipped through via email before our admin killed it.., trying to give some kind of legitimacy to their 'credentials' of being 'an honest poster'....oh and some kind of 'zen' website using a .co.uk  address (when in spain- bit like the Chinese ebay sallers) they run ... and now we get the father of the bride ...no sorry...father of a child at the uk-based international school in question posting ...pretending to be not the 'other alf... do you really think people are that stupid..... ................... nope you never owed that in the 1st place... wake up you got had and grabbed the phone - oh no they are taking me to court under UK jurisdiction...and fell for every trick in the book that they would never ever put in writing that could be placed in front of a court operating under their stated uk jurisdiction wherever you live. T&C's are always challengeable under UK law this very site would not exist if it were not for the +£Bn's bank charges reclaiming from 2006> and latterly the +£Bn's of PPI reclaiming both directly stated in the banks' T&C's were they claimed they were legally enforceable ...not!! they lost big time... why? a waste of more money if you've not got a court claim....... why not use them for a good outcome...go reclaim that £1000 refundable deposit you got scammed out of . people please research very carefully ...you never know who any of these people are that are posting about kings interhigh and their 'stories' they could even be one of their online tutors or a shill . don't get taken in. dx      
    • @KingsParent thank you for sharing your experience.  I also tried contacting the CEO but didn’t get very far. Do you mind sharing his contact details?  kind regards   
    • Thank you Rocky for the clarifications though they did cause a problem at first since an original windsccreen ticket was  of a different breach some time before. The current windscreen ticket only states that you were parked there for 6 minutes which is just one minute over the minimum time allowed as the Consideration period. There is no further proof that you parked there for any longer than that is there? More photographs for example? Moving on to the Notice to Keeper-it does not comply with the Protection of Freedoms Act 2012 Schedule 4. First there is no parking period mentioned on it. there is the time 20.25 stated which coincides with the W/S ticket but a parking period must have a starting and finishing time-just one time is insufficient to qualify as a parking  period as required in Section 9 [2] [a] . Are there any different photos shown on the NTK comapared to the w/s PCN? Not that that would make a difference as far as PoFA goes since the times required by PoFA should be on the NTK but at the moment Met only appear to show that you stayed there for 6 minutes. Another failure to comply with PoFA is at S9([2][e] where their wording should be "the creditor will (if all the applicable conditions under this Schedule are met) have the right to recover from the keeper so much of that amount as remains unpaid; ". You can see on your NTK that they misssed off the words in brackets. Met cannot therefore transfer the charge from the driver to the keeper. Only the driver is now liable. Then their is the discrepancy with the post code on the NTK  HA4 0EY which differs from the post code on the contract and the Post Office Postcode Finder which both list it as HA4 0FY. As you were not parked in HA4 0EY the breach did not occur. In the same way as if you were caught speeding in the Mall in London, yet you were charged with speeding in Pall mall London [a street nearby] you would be found not guilty since though you were speeding you were not speeding in Pall Mall. I bow to Eric's brother on his reasoning on post 12 re the electric bay abuse  That wording is not listed on their signs nor is there any mention on the contract of any electric charging points at all let alone who can park there or use them. He is quite right too that the entrance sign is merely an invitaion to treat it cannot form a contrct with motorists. Also the contract looks extremely  short no doubt there will be more when we see the full Witness statement. As it stands there is no confirmation from Standard Life [or Lift !] on the contract that Savills are able to act on their behalf. Also most contracts are signed at the end of the contract to prevent either side adding extra points. So their percentage  chance of winning their case would be somewhere between 0.01 and 0.02.

    • Hello,

      On 15/1/24 booked appointment with Big Motoring World (BMW) to view a mini on 17/1/24 at 8pm at their Enfield dealership.  

      Car was dirty and test drive was two circuits of roundabout on entry to the showroom.  Was p/x my car and rushed by sales exec and a manager into buying the mini and a 3yr warranty that night, sale all wrapped up by 10pm.  They strongly advised me taking warranty out on car that age (2017) and confirmed it was honoured at over 500 UK registered garages.

      The next day, 18/1/24 noticed amber engine warning light on dashboard , immediately phoned BMW aftercare team to ask for it to be investigated asap at nearest garage to me. After 15 mins on hold was told only their 5 service centres across the UK can deal with car issues with earliest date for inspection in March ! Said I’m not happy with that given what sales team advised or driving car. Told an amber warning light only advisory so to drive with caution and call back when light goes red.

      I’m not happy to do this, drive the car or with the after care experience (a sign of further stresses to come) so want a refund and to return the car asap.

      Please can you advise what I need to do today to get this done. 
       

      Many thanks

    • We have finally managed to obtain the transcript of this case.

      The judge's reasoning is very useful and will certainly be helpful in any other cases relating to third-party rights where the customer has contracted with the courier company by using a broker.
      This is generally speaking the problem with using PackLink who are domiciled in Spain and very conveniently out of reach of the British justice system.

      Frankly I don't think that is any accident.

      One of the points that the judge made was that the customers contract with the broker specifically refers to the courier – and it is clear that the courier knows that they are acting for a third party. There is no need to name the third party. They just have to be recognisably part of a class of person – such as a sender or a recipient of the parcel.

      Please note that a recent case against UPS failed on exactly the same issue with the judge held that the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 did not apply.

      We will be getting that transcript very soon. We will look at it and we will understand how the judge made such catastrophic mistakes. It was a very poor judgement.
      We will be recommending that people do include this adverse judgement in their bundle so that when they go to county court the judge will see both sides and see the arguments against this adverse judgement.
      Also, we will be to demonstrate to the judge that we are fair-minded and that we don't mind bringing everything to the attention of the judge even if it is against our own interests.
      This is good ethical practice.

      It would be very nice if the parcel delivery companies – including EVRi – practised this kind of thing as well.

Hi guys,

 

- Moved in to a private rental flat end of January, 12 month AST with 2 month notice.

- Private landlord, aquantance of a friend. First time renting to someone, he seems very 'laid back'.

- We met last December to discuss terms. I was heading abroad for 6 weeks and he was moving to Spain whilst I was away.

- He's UK address is under he's friends address who holds spare keys. (I picked keys from him)

- Came back and had planned to move in on the 29th Jan as stated in contract.

- First week I made a couple of complaints about noise/neighbors and the fact he had left his old junk in the flat for me to clear (bathroom shelf still had beard trimmings, old pair of crocs lying about, dirty sheets, broken vaccum etc), his response (Just leave it in the park someone will pick it up)

- LL was seemingly annoyed by my complaints, emailed end of March that I still hadn't heard back from a deposit scheme and got no answer from LL.

- Sent LL email yesterday once again asking for deposit info, still no answer but got automated email from DPS welcoming me on my 'new' account.

- I've since read Gas/elect certificates should be provided which has made more concerned since he hasn't protetected my deposit and I haven't got any safety cetfificates.

 

What's my next step? He clearly thinks by registering me up for a DPS account suddenly is acceptable. I wanted to get advice on how to properly write a letter regarding not only the deposit but the

safety certificates.

 

I can't afford to move out but I'm also annoyed that I emailed back in March asking him about my deposit which he ignored!

 

Thank you.

Hi

 

Well your Landlord isn't doing themselves any favours here and as for getting and email from DPS saying welcome to your new account is not proof that your deposit has actually been protected as the Landlord is legally required to issue you with a copy of the Prescribe Terms of that Tenancy Deposit Scheme your Deposit is protected in.

 

Not protecting a Deposit opens the Landlord up

 

Also is your Landlord registered with the Local Council Private Renting Dept that they are a Landlord Renting a Property as this is also a requirement is most of the UK now and a way to check is simply by contacting the Local Council Private Renting Dept and asking.

 

If you are in England it is also now a legal requirement that a Tenant is issued with a copy of the How to Rent: the checklist for renting in England.

 

As for the Gas Safety Check you should have been provided with a copy of the latest safety check and these are required to be carried out annually by the Landlord as it is a legal requirement.

 

I would have a good read of the following links but also suggest that you could also point these links out to your Landlord.

 

WWW.GOV.UK

Private renting as a tenant - repairs, rent increases and arrears, settling disputes, deposits and your rights and responsibilities.

 

WWW.GOV.UK

Tenant's guide to deposit protection schemes - your deposit, information landlords must provide, disputes and advice

 

 

WWW.GASSAFEREGISTER.CO.UK

If you rent a room or a property, understand the gas safety steps you need to take to comply with the law.

Thank you for your time and the links, very helpful. I've since received an email that the deposit is now infact protected. Which is a start.

 

Basically, aside from the contract the landlord seem to have broken every single rule/regulation.

Hi

 

Your more than welcome and the first thing I would be doing is checking with the Local Council Private Landlord Dept that your Landlord is actually registered with them as I mentioned in my previous post most Local Councils in the UK this in now a Legal Requirement.

 

Also keep a written record of every single thing they have not done and that does include your Deposit from the date your took up your Tenancy until you had to chase this up keep everything in writing for your own records

I shall, thank you.

 

What is the likely outcome here? I'm not looking to gain anything it's purely because he's negligence (and mine to an extent) could be rather dangerous and his ignorance.

 

To top it off, I sent a lengthy email outlining things he's missed and he just responded with "Let me know when you want me to sort out the certificate and I'll organise it'.

Too laid back..

Hi

 

The likely outcome is that the Landlord is opening themselves up to legal ramifications and could even backfire on then if and I do say if they even tried to go down the eviction process due to there negligence.

That Landlord even if they are new to this it is there Legal Responsibility to look into what they are Legally required to carry out as a Landlord it not for you the Tenant to chase the Landlord and point out what they have not done that is a Legal requirement as they have a Legal Duty of Care the buck stops with them.

As for the Gas Safety Certificate that response it them trying to pass the buck so it is in your court to let them know so I would simply respond

Dear Sir

Thank you for your Email Dated but as this Gas Safety Certificate is a Legal Requirement by Law I should not have to chase this up nor have it passed to me as to when you want to sort it as this should been getting dealt with as a matter of urgency as at present I have no Gas Safety Certificate for this Property this is for you to arrange.

(please feel free to amend above to suit your needs)

Here is an HSE Link: (not it is the HSE that can prosecute a Landlord for failing to carry out this Legal requirement of a Gas Safety

WWW.HSE.GOV.UK

HSE answers questions frequently asked by tenants relating to gas safety.

Thank you Stu. The engineer came yesterday thankfully all was well. He had arranged for yesterday and even said he's given his friend permission to enter the flat as I will "probably be at work". I quickly reminded him that without my permission, no one is entering. It's seriously everything with this guy.

And yes I agree, everytime I start to feel bad for the landlord I just remember that not securimng a deposit sucks but it's not going to kill you, not doing a gas safety on the other hand... And I know that's extreme but annoys me when I think about it.

At least it's done now.

Hi

 

Your welcome 

A least the Landlord saw the light and got the the Gas Safety Certificate complete (bit of advice for future which I should have mention any engineer that comes out to carry out the Gas Safety Certificate always ask to see there Gas Safety Registration Card which you are entitled to ask and they must show you without any arguments and if they do argue then that bring into question whether they are actually registered)

So simply always ask anyone carrying out a Gas Safety Check to see there Gas Safety Registration Card or any work on Gas within the Property.

Here is another link which you should also be aware of for Landlord to do with Smoke Detectors and Carbon Monoxide Detectors:

Thanks again,

It's been a couple of weeks since the engineer came over but still not a peep about results, not heard from LL since he arranged the check. The engineer said on the day everything looked fine but that's not the point.
