    • I hope you mean I try to help people stand up to bullying - and not do the bullying!   I'll assume it's a compliment!     Well - that sort of demonstrates that you've not understood my point and (perhaps?) haven't actually read the OP?   My point is that it is not the boyfriend (the supposed "owner" of the car park) who is posting, but his girlfriend who believes that he "owns" his car parking space.  Yes - it usually makes sense to believe that what the OP is posting is the truth, but in this case there is every reason to believe that there is a possibility that the OP might be mistaken about her boyfriend's ownership of the parking space, because...  well, how would she know for sure whether he does or not?  He might be boasting or lying or simply mistaken.  (My understanding is that many people who "own" flats are often under the mistaken apprehension that they "own" a parking space when they don't.  All the more reason then that somebody else other than the "owner" might be even more mistaken).   I suppose what I'm getting at is that I was a bit surprised that both you and dx100uk were able to give such definite and certain answers to the OP without exploring her situation a bit more fully and ensuring that she fully and correctly understood her boyfriend's rights in respect of the parking space in question.  I was simply concerned that without getting more information from the OP, then the replies given to her might prove to be less than useful.  I wouldn't want her to leave thinking that there was absolutely nothing to worry about and then find out there was because she'd been misadvised because she didn't understand whether her BF "owned" the space or not.   Of course, it may be that my concern here makes absolutely no difference to the answer that needs to be given to the OP because it doesn't matter whether her boyfriend actually "owns" the parking space or not, which is fine.  But sometimes I think it would be helpful to the OP (and other readers like myself) if some of these legal niceties could be spelled out rather than left unexplained.    
    • I've spoken to my son in law and because the gearbox can be very expensive to repair, he would prefer to reject the car.   The garage isn't going to charge storage at the moment.   I feel they have been mislead regarding the service history.   How difficult would it be to get the finance company on our side in rejecting the car and sending back to the dealer?
    • The first thing to say is that you better go ahead and refund the buyer because otherwise she will end up getting negative feedback as well. We will try and help you get your money back from Hermes. Have you made a formal claim through Hermes and have they formally declined you and giving you reasons why? Presumably the item was properly declared and properly valued when the delivery was booked. You don't say whether or not you took out their so-called insurance. Please start off by reading around the sub- forum focusing particularly on the Hermes threats. There are lots of them. Get to understand the principles in respect of the arguments – the insurance element, your third party rights despite the fact that you booked it through Packlink. Have a look at other people's experiences of having sued Hermes, the process of issuing the claim, the defence, the mediation and have a close look at the advice that we give about how to handle mediation. It's highly likely that you will have to issue claim papers so also read around to understand the steps you need to take to bring a small claim in the County Court. It's straightforward but understanding the steps will make you far more confident about what you are doing. Have you started a formal complaint against Hermes and Packlink?

No at 15%.

 

If I didn't wish to remain as a customer then I would go for the unauthorised rate. I have never been 100% happy with going for the larger percentage as I feel that a judge may feel it is one step too far...especially since part of the legal argument we are using does involve agreement that we have breached the contract.

 

Whilst I would be happy to argue that point against a company that I did not want to maintain an on-going relationship with, I would rather not push this to the point where BOS can cite any unreasonableness on my part.

It isn't unreasonable as they charge the same amount to you in similar circumstances. Just my 2 pence.

That's fine - and provided you are happy to argue you position in front of a Judge then great.

 

I would certainly agree that there is a legal argument to justify that the u/r could be applied, but personally I feel it is pushing the line of reasonableness just a little bit too far when you have already admitted to breaching the same contract on which you are basing your claim.

I get your point, but I fail to see much difference in rationale in claiming either the authorised or unauthorised interest rate. Do you see?

The Governor & Company of the Bank of Scotland have decided that they should throw in the towel - although of course, they do not admit liability!

 

They have only paid the section 69 interest, but as I wish to maintain a working relationship with them I have decided to accept their offer of £1811.15 as full and final settlement.

 

Just for the record, they filed their acknowledgment with intend to defend at the same time as sending the settlement offer.
