  1. Yes we sent a form because originally he didn't want to act as executor, but said he wanted to stay at the last minute. So advised for power reserved. Now probate has been granted to my wife he is kicking off. She needed to apply because she wants to sell the house she has been left.
  2. thanks guys for you input. when my applied for probate she spoke to the district probate office, she was advised to change his side to powered reserved. She wouldn't have to seek his consent as he was aware she was applying for letters of administration. regarding the value of the estate, we have found other assets and money totalling around 40K this would only value the estate at 120k therefore way under the tax threshold, just don't want probate kicking off
  3. Hi Guys just looking for some guidance and advice please. My mother-in-law passed away middle of 2016. My wife and her brother are named as excutors on the will (which was collected from her solicitors). My wife has taken the lead role in dealing with her estate. The majority of the estate has been left to her with monies being left to grand children, only a few personal items left to her brother. He was given up for adoption and only reappeared on the scene 12 years ago. He had stated early on that he didn't want anything leaving to him as he was already set up
  4. she hasn't directly refused to work the extra hours but has made it clear that she isn't happy and doesn't really want to work above her 26 hours. I suggested I would seek advice here first before she does anything incorrectly. She is quite adamant that she on wants to work the contracted 26 hours. this is the wording in her contract "Your hours of work will be 26 hours per week. you hours of work are flexible, as required to meet the needs of the business. your hours will be varied and allocated on a weekly rota in advance"
  5. the problem is, she is mother of a 18month old, she doesn't really want to work beyond her contracted 26 hours, but keep giving her many more
  6. Hi, this is in relationship to my daughter she has the following wording in her contract "Your hours of work will be 26 hours per week. you hours of work are flexible, as required to meet the needs of the business. your hours will be varied and allocated on a weekly rota in advance" my question is; she is constantly being made to work above and beyond 26 hours, basically is her employer allowed to continually do this, some weeks she may work 36 hours. many thanks in advance for any help
  7. I have compiled the following to sent to court along with my paperwork. please can I have peoples opinions Mitigating Circumstances Dear Sir / Madam, I have admitted the offence of exceeding a 40mph speed limit.

  8. sorry, just checked. it was sent to Her Majestys Courts & Tribunals Service, North Fixed Penalty Office, PO Box 250, Morley, LS27 1ET I kept copies of the letter and also took photocopies of driving license
  9. Hi Guys, I have an issue where I have been summoned to court for not sending my driving license to dvla. I was offered a fixed penalty for a speeding offence. I paid the £100.00 fine online and sent my documents off to dvla to be endorsed as requested. Sometime later I then got a summons to court for a date in March. I contacted the fixed penalty office to query why this was as I have proof I had paid the fine. They replied saying that they hadn't received my documents, even though I had sent them via royal mail on the same day. They said I would have to attended court and plea
  10. I have an interesting one for everyone to think about and hopefully I will receive some advice. I had an attachment to earnings order issued against myself from the council in June 2012. My employer deducted the right amounts from my pay over a period of 7 months totalling £1284.00. My employer at the time only paid the council just over £600, even though the had taken the full amount this being confirmed by my payslips. The council have tried to get me to pay the outstanding amount as they thought I had moved employment, Which I did in May 2013. They have writt
  11. okay point taken. but there again if that being the case, I have only missed one payment. Hardly the grounds for summons of non payment. also, my bill is £1062.00 for the year, so were are my payments. of £237.92, it would leave me owing £824.08 not the full amount
  12. I have an interesting query regarding the above. I have received today a summons to court on 4th July for non payment of council tax for this year. it states council tax £1062.00 Summons Costs £58.00 Total Due £1120.00 now I actually pay this manually via online banking as my pay dates alter by a week depending on the last Thursday of the month. just looked at my bank account for specific payment dates, for payments already made. Just in case I was cracking up and hadn't paid them anything this year. payments made are as fo
  13. yes, i see what your saying, but they didnt pay it first time around. besides, how do they know its car insurance
  14. I have an Halifax reward current account with an authorised overdraft £1000 I always try to keey to this limit but occasionally do go over it. I have noticed over the last couple of months that I have had a couple of direct debits fail because of insufficiant funds in the account. On more than one occasion I have noticed that I have been at my limit and they havent paid any direct debits, for example Tesco (car insurance). On tesco representing for payment on a 2nd occasion they have paid it, forcing me over my overdraft limit, therfore forcing me into paying £5 per day fee. my quest
  15. surely there is some kind of legislation stating that they have to follow some kind of procedure
  16. Hi Locutus, its not been sorted at all, I have read other threads where clearly O2 have been reading, and it would seem that the defend this kind of thing all the way. I am clearly very p****d off that I have been put in this situation by them, this has totally affected my ability to remortgage and lower my outgoings. I am stuck on a high interest rate that was fixed for 5 years. This whole episode is going to have a significant effect on me and my family now for the next 6 years. I really am totally dismayed as how easy they can do this without even contacting to ask to clear a
  17. I just wish o2 were as good at settling these problems like vodafone do for there customers pfffffff
  18. this is the reply I got back from them, this doing my head in now. As far as I was concerned, my account was closed so why would i then check my online account details. Am i now right in thinking that they should at least follow some kind of protocol in trying to get a debt settled, not just leaving it and then placing a default on my credit file arhhhhhhhhhhh. Dear Andrew Thanks for your reply. All of your bills are online for you to check. Bill notifications were sent to your o2 online account on 17 March and 25 March. It’s the responsibility of each customer to chec
  19. This is my reply to response; peoples thoughts would be welcome please Dear Laura, Many thanks for your reply to my email. Please may I point out that I was never in fact told that there would be a further charge added to my account. If I had been aware of this, then it would have been paid in full. This was the reason my account was credit for the sum of £10.21p. If I had indeed still owed this final payment, then why hasn’t O2 been in contact via email, phone or letter making me aware of this fact. There has been no attempt from O2 to recover this so called outstandin
