  1. So basically there has been no fall of interest rates??? So why are they saying that there has been??? What can I do about this?
  2. Hi my husband and I are claiming ESA as he is disabled and I am his carer - we had a letter yesterday from the DWP stating that due to a change in our circumstances the amount they are paying towards our mortgage has changed. It works out that we now have to find nearly £32 extra a month - ok that's fine but why has it changed ? Nothing has changed for us so we can't see why the payments have changed. To be sure I rang the mortgage provider to ask if there had been any changes there, they said no. I rang the DWP and asked them and they told me that the bank of England's interest rate h
  3. I've looked into the Rated people thing - apparently from what I have read they are not interested - they say they will get someone to ring you and they never do - so not even going to bother going down that route, as I can do without the added stress.
  4. The electrician is part of his team but the wires were supposed to have been run prior to the plastering - then when sockets etc were to e put on a different electrician came along and said original wires and cables were not correct so had to channel them out. He will have to re plaster but its going to ruin my so called new kitchen - the original plasterer made a terrible mess. The latest with this is that I have had one worktop fitted and my gas hob so that I can cook a meal now instead of having a takeaway - I have refused however to have the other temporary worktops fitted as they are
  5. Yes the quote was for the whole job - I had to pay for the kitchen up front - then on completion pay the balance. I haven't paid anything else.
  6. I was measured up for a kitchen by Wren in January this year - after quieting a price they then sent out a surveyor who added another nearly £2000 to the price - I saw an ad on TV for rated people and asked for them to send some workmen to give quotes - I ended up going with a man who said he could get the same wren kitchen for me and do all the work for nearly £3000 cheaper than wren had quoted. He drew up an email contract outlining the work that was tobe done and asked that I pay him for the kitchen upfront so he could order it as they need 6 weeks to deliver. I transferred the money to h
  7. How can I get these companies to respond to my letters?
  8. Saffron road is where I sent the complaint - recorded delivery - so they are obviously choosing to ignore my letter and yes the account was closed before they went over to Barclaycard My husbands citi card was an old associates card which I know were taken over by citi - it would be with citi as I believe it's only the more recent accounts that went over to opus. How to I get these people to respond to my letters then?
  9. Hi I used to have a Monument credit card and have been trying to get hold of the account number etc to claim back my PPI that I know I had on the account the trouble is they are either not responding or I am sending the letters to the wrong address. Does anyone know who they are these days are where they are based? Previous letters have been sent to Saffron Road in Leeds with no reply. Also my husband has been trying to claim his PPI from Citi but the address for this is also unclear. Any help would be gratefully accepted.
  10. OK = no sent off all paperwork for my claim - its a long complicated one so i wont go into that bit as thats not the problem at the moment. The claim was submitted back in August and the expected decision date was week ending 26th October 2012. I waited a week heard nothing and after trying to ring several number without being about to speak to a person, i did mange to get through to someone who said the offer letter had been sent out to us back on 1st September - that was over 7 weeks before. Obviously we had not had this as i wouldnt have been caling them up they said that they would pu
  11. I found some paperwork yesterday for A secured loan taken out in 2000. The company then was The Associates who later went onto become CitiFinancial. I have no idea what Citis contact address is and can only find a po box address - does anyone know the address please and can anyone confirm that the Associates did become Citi financial? I have also read that that if the company was not registered with the FSA at the time the loan was taken out then the ombudsman will not take on the case. Is it worth claiming?
  12. Ok sorry not replied - been really busy. I sent a letter asking for something to be done (10.06.2011) I plan to give them two weeks to reply, but i do not hold my breathe on this. if i do not here - what is the next step? The warranty is the installation warranty not an insurance one and there are no 'big' brands involved. What is the MD you ask me to find? sorry not that good with abbreviations.
  13. Hi, In 2007 I bought a set of patio doors that came with a 10 year warrenty. Last winter i noticed a draft coming through and on further inspection could see that daylight was showing through the seals of the door. I phoned up the company that fitted them and was told they would be in the area within the next month and would contact me then for a convienient day to visit. That was last November - since then I have rang up at least once if not twice a month to be told the same thing!! I did tackle the answer last time and she told me that she would get back to me by the end of the day to a
  14. nothing from bank apart from a letter saying that they wont be paying anything because the OFT test case was sucessful for them!!! Just read the link - basically if you are not prepared to go down the court route then it's not worth persueing??? Had this been a couple of years ago, I might have done so, but depression and stress of autistic sons exams fast approaching - I don't think this is an option for me right now. I havent heard from the courts yet regarding my claim, but a Citi claim submitted and stayed at the same time has just been lifted so Barclays will probabley be im
