I have a car parked at my holiday apartment in Leucate. Our last visit was in September 2019 and we discovered the car had been vandalised during our absence in the winter of 2018. The windscreen had been smashed, the two wing mirrors wrenched off and a tyre slashed. The insurance company, Allianz, eventually agreed it was an acceptable claim. The car was collected and moved to a local garage which had a franchise with Allianz. The garage name is Pascual Frères of Caves. I frequently requested progress reports without response. Eventually, having invoked Allianz, they replied to say they had experienced "enormous difficulty" sourcing the wind mirrors. I found, with very little effort ten suppliers of said mirrors. One year later(!), the end of July 2020, they declared the car ready. By then, the Covid shutdown had commenced. I charged Allianz with duty of care for the car (which had recently been fitted with a new battery) and they slope-shouldered. I was mainly concerned about rodent damage which can destroy a car's electrical wiring. The car was left in "garage mode" for insurance purposes reducing the premiums to an acceptable level. However, I have now discovered that the premiums have been steadyly increased now costing €65 per month! This is for a car I have no access to.It seems that I need legal assistance to obtain justice and I would very much welcome recommendations for lawyers in the Perpignan - Narbonne area.
We have been fighting a legal battle for 8 years with a company that installed photovoltaic panels on our property. The installation was a disaster for a whole number of reasons. Having won a judgement in court that the company needs to pay, they have just now declared bankruptcy. The lawyer who obtained this decision is about to retire and we are looking for good advice on whether we can prove the bankruptcy fraudulent, or any other way of obtaining payment. We'd be grateful for help or advice.
I have just arrived to find a lot of damage to the ceiling and furnitures in one room in our apartment. I was notified about two weeks ago by the syndic that there had been a water leak into some apartments due to a storm whilst the roof is being replaced. The syndic did not specify which apartments and said a report will be sent.i have read there is a time limit for reporting damage (5 or 10 days). How does this work if you are away?
My father lived in Languedoc-Roussillon for over 25 years with his second wife and their son. I am one of 4 children from my father's first marriage and we only found out by chance that my father died last week. His wife and their son did not see fit to even advise us he was ill in hospital and died there and they have refused to tell us when his funeral is and have now blocked us all on every social media outlet. We are unable to find out anything at all and I think their behaviour is obscene. My father was a wealthy man and his wife and son have led privileged lifestyles at my father's expense and to the detriment of myself and my siblings and our mother. To even be denied access to our father's funeral is reprehensible. Can anyone advise as to how we can find out when his funeral will be?
If you or anyone you know has a problem making a rdv online with the préfect Béziers. I would like to hear from you. After many months of poor communication and unprofessional-ism, the problem goes unresolved. I have a meeting with the Mayor of Béziers to organize a "peaceful" protest in front of the préfect. Im reaching out to anyone who has not been able to apply or renew their carte de sejour because of an online system that has been hacked or pirated. Legitimate people have not been able to make a rdv which greatly affects our status (residency) here in France.Thank you!
