  1. I'll keep an eye on this thread to see what your outcome is, as i currently have a situation going on with GE...i was charged £30 per month for 14 months by them while i was unemployed, this was due to the fact that the PPI didnt pay my full amount to my loan account. as i couldn't afford the extra £42 per month myself they charged me for the shortfall. They also charged me £30 per month when the PPi company was late with the payments, on top of this they also charged me interest. I am currently awaiting a reply from the PPI company (via financial ombudsman) regarding the mis selling of the PPI & also the broker for the miss selling of the loan. I shall now get all my paperwork in order this weekend, and shall be asking GE for a refund of all those charges,,,, will let you know how i get on.
  2. No nothing has changed, still doing the same job, same wages...25% discount for single person living on my own. Just got one letter stating i owe £27 for the year...a week later they say i owe £86, no explenation.
  3. I last week received a letter from birmingham city Council stating that i have not paid enough Council tax for 2010/2011, the amount of the shortfall was for £27.54, which they said was for the rest of 2010/2011 up until the end of March 2011, which i paid next day. Yesterday i received another letter exactly the same as the previous one, but saying that the shortfall was for £86, it also stated that if this was not paid within 7 days i would incurr court costs. Surely if i went to court, the court would acknowledge the first letter for £27.54 as the amount that i owe. Any advice please.
  4. I was recently accepted some work from an agency, initially it was supposed to be for 8 weeks. I started on monday 9th August & worked for 1 week. On the following Monday myself & another guy turned up for our shift & was told we where no longer needed. The agency sais we will get paid for the work we did for the previous week , but not for the Monday...the day we where sent home, told we where no longer needed. Surely we should also be paid for this day as well, as we turned up for our shift expecting to work... we where given no prior notice???
  5. Cheers,one question i do have is,my credit rating is probably crap now because of Nationwide,,,how do i find out if this has effected my credit rating,& if it has how do i resolve this issue?
  6. ok thanks anyway,just doesn't seem fair,,,i think there should be a clause,that if a company is taking people on after a spate of redundancies,then they should be under obligation to reinstate those who where made redundant on a last out first in policy.
  7. Because they've now finished recruiting.They basically chose who they wanted to come back instead of doing it farely.
  8. I was made redundant along with 15 others in July 2009, after 9 years at the same company.Prior to the redundancys in July there where also redundancys in Jan 2009 & Nov 2008,all the redundancies where done on a point scoring system depending on service & sickness. However,the company has now reinstated 15 people on a temporary 3 month contract,these 15 people are all ex employees who where made redundant,many of which went with the first lot of redundancies in Nov 2008. My question is,,,should the company have approached me & asked me to go back for 3 months,before asking people made redundant prior to myself? Does the law state last out first back in?,as i am wondering if i have a case against them.
  9. Yeh i asked the judge about costs,but he said it wasn't worth me persuing as i would not get alot anyway.
  10. I'm a very happy man today,just got back from the court hearing...which lasted all of 3 minutes. CASE WON,,,£3000 better off. The judge awarded me the case due to Nationwide not compling with the courts instructions,thier paperwork was not in order & not responding to my defence. He has also put an order in place that Nationwide cannot take this debt to court again,as he put it to Nationwide :- "you have already had one bite of the cherry,you are not going to have a second". He then said to me :- this is now the end of the matter,go home & sleep easy."....you should of seen the smile on my face,lol. Result...thanks everyone....Monument next!!
  11. Hi all,i today recieved a telephone call from Eversheds,saying that Nationwide are dropping the case against me & would i please look at the email i have been sent,this was the email: Further to our earlier telephone conversation, please find attached a draft consent order for your signature. Please note that by signing this consent order you are agreeing that our client may discontinue this claim and that the court will make no order as to costs. Once the consent order is filed at court, the trial listed for Friday will no longer go ahead. Once I have received the consent order signed by you I will lodge it with the court explaining that neither you nor our client will look to attend the trial. You are free to contact the court as you wish, but there should be no need once I have the consent order from you. If you have any queries, please feel free to call me on either of the numbers below. I look forward to hearing from you by return. Regards this was the attachment: Defendant _____________________________ CONSENT ORDER UPON the parties agreeing to the terms set out herein BY CONSENT IT IS ORDERED THAT: 1. The Claimant discontinues its claim against the Defendant. 2. Each party shall bear their own costs. Dated: February 2010 signed........ (me) signed......(eversheds) I would now appreciate some advice,if i sign this & return it should i first ask the opinion of the court as to what action to take,or should i ignore this email & just turn up for the hearing on Friday,should i inform Eversheds that i will be attending court on Friday? (that is if thats the best option). Can i now put in a claim against Nationwide for my expenses i.e. £75 for summary judgement hearing,costs for postage,printing & administration time,stress,ruining my credit rating??,,ifr so how do i go about this? Thanks for this & also for everyones help & advice over the last year,much appreciated.
  12. I Have This Morning Recieved A Reply From The Court, Regarding My Request For The Claim To Be Thrown Out Due To Nationwide Not Filing Thier Paperwork With The Court By The Date Given (which Was 7th Dec). The Reply Basically Says 'no Further Order Needed The Matter Shall Remain Listed As A Small Claims Trial On .....2010'. I Phoned The Court This Morning & They Have Told Me That Nationwide Has Still Not Put Thier Paperwork Forward. In My Opinion,if This Had Been The Other Way Around Then Nationwide Would Have Been Awarded The Claim,,surely This Should Work Both Ways? Is It Worth Me Now Putting In A N244 Form To The Court Asking Again For The Claim To Be Struck Out,giving The Reasons As To Why I Think This Should Be Done?
  13. Phoned up the court on Monday,Nationwide have not filed thier paperwork, which was supposed to be in by 4pm.Have now sent a letter on Tuesday asking for the case to be thrown out.
