  1. Thanks uncleb for the reply. I've never had any such form off the Local Authority Which is exactly my point, when they began Further Education I reported it to the relevant Departments, who in turn notified the Local Authority. At no time have I had to notify the Local Authority directly about them starting Further Education. When he left Further Education I notified the same Departments and my payments from them was adjusted and his name removed from the Child Tax Credits notification, so I think it is fair to think that the Local Authority were made aware as
  2. I hope someone can assist in this claim by the local council that a change in my household has caused an over payment of £1200. Circumstances are that myself and my wife are in receipt of ESA Contribution Based due to heart problems. We have 2 grandsons and one son living with us. My eldest grandson left college in 2018, the younger one is still in further education. I informed the Child Benefit Office and HMRC about it at the time and he has not been on the Child Tax Credits since then and Child Benefit was stopped. From September 2018 after leaving colleg
  3. Sorry for not getting back sooner. Due to personal reasons I have had to bite the bullet it on this. It goes against what I believe in but I honestly need to let this one go. I do have some pictures and believe that the signs were installed after the date I had visited, simply because there was one right behind where I parked, infact the payment machine was right behind where I parked. However, that is immaterial and I apologise for wasting anyones time. Thanks.
  4. I know that, but why do Moorcroft even seem to think I had a payment plan in place with Zinc Group ? They are supposed to be 'administering' my account on behalf of Lloyds. If Moorcroft can't even get the basic facts correct, then why would anyone let them administer accounts for them
  5. Thank You BankFoddder. Just an update to the situation. Since Lloyds asked Moorcroft to administer the account I have not paid them and the letters have been going through a cycle ever since and then stopping and repeating again, with the exact letters being sent, usualy an 8 letter cycle. This years cycle has just started again but strangely Moorcroft have mentioned that the method I was using to pay ZINC GROUP will determine what action I need to take. This seems strange, as I've never had any payment arrangement with anyone but Lloyds, infact I've n
  6. I intend going back and getting photos DX, simply because I can't believe that I never saw ANY signs and even missed the machine to pay at. Like I said I've frequented this place many times in the past few years so I think I would have noticed something different, unless I'm going senile The times on the letter are a bit strange, the entry time was dead on x hr and xx mins but no seconds, whereas the exit was x hr, xx mins and xx seconds. I don't really want to go through the appeals process online, confirming all my details in the hope they will show the photos, just the cynic in me
  7. Apparently, on producing your ticket the bar staff will reimburse your parking fee. Not quite sure what that means actually It's not a NTK as such, or it isn't headed as one. It is merely an invite to pay the fee or name the driver responsible whom I obviously have no obligation to name. They don't mention Schedule 4 of The Protections of Freedoms Act 2012 in this letter, but could they do so in future correspondence ? I assume it is safe to not enter into any correspondence with them at this stage and await the barrage of threats that will
  8. I checked the website and the only option is to appeal, which means putting all my personal details in again. And don't forget the other guy got one at night just the week before me. Do you think they would patrol at night ? There is a clinic at the back of the pub car park and you have to drive through the pub car park to access the clinic car park. It mentions the ANPR cameras on the website of the clinic : http://www.durnfordmc.nhs.uk/ Scroll down to where it says Access: Turn into the Boars Head Pub car park then drive through to o

  10. Hi, Completely by surprise last week I received a demand from the above for payment as it seems I hadn't paid to park. I say by surprise because I have frequented this establishment many times over the last few years and parking has always been free, and I didn't see anything to suggest otherwise this time. The location as shown on google maps is here: https://www.google.co.uk/maps/@53.5532796,-2.1966645,3a,75y,249.64h,84.71t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1s_7wSLBtMIfme9fEWhaMUSw!2e0!7i13312!8i6656?hl=en There were certainly no obviously visible signs in

    You're correct, there is an Advances Tab but all it says in there is: "If you have an advance you'll have to pay it back a bit at a time from future Universal Credit payments. If you stop getting Universal Credit, you will have to pay your advance back another way. For example, by deductions from your wages." If you check the statements under the Payments Tab it gives the amount due and the amount they are taking back and then just gives a phone number to get more information about your Loans or Advance payments. Another quick question, do the DWP still write

    That makes it a lot clearer, thank you. Although it does seem strange that someone that has already been assessed then has to wait 2 months for any extra payments due. It seems strange that there is no detail on the advance payments that you can access, it just says we are taking £37.77 this month.

    Yes, and it seems that is how they communicate with everyone now. I just find it strange that the Job Center were informed after a couple of days and yet a couple of weeks later nothing has been received from the DWP with an explanation as to the decision.

    It's a bit complicated DX, as it is my grandson. He apparently made a claim in another town when he was with his father and actually got an advance payment. However, that claim was closed due to him not attending appointments. He came back living with us to sort his life out and made a fresh claim for UC but had a "fit note" from the start. They have now stopped £30 out of this months UC, though they didn't last month. When I questioned him about it he said he was given two advance payments of £250 when he was at his fathers house. I perso
  15. Hi, Just after some guidance really as I'm lost with all this UC stuff and journals etc. I recently helped someone with their first UC claim but they had a "fit note" from the doctor due to mental health and anxiety. So they got a date for the assessment, which was on a Friday and they attended that and actually came out at about midday, after spending over 2 hours in there, and to be honest I had expected to be faced with an MR and then an appeal. Then the following week on the Tuesday there was an entry in his journal saying he had basically been plac
