  1. Thanks for that. Seeing as you seem so sure maybe you don’t mind linking me your source of information eg statute or law which basically says I have to give them the information they want? Genuinely want to see it in black and white. Many thanks.
  2. Hello Got a letter today asking who is in my household they need the information. It’s not a vote registration but so they “know” whom is eligible. If I don’t provide it they say I’ll be fined 1k. I don’t want to be part of the democratic process and this to me is part of it. Is there a law that says I must provide this information? As it only says it’s a legal not lawful requirement? Thanks
  3. Hello If this is not the wrong forum please delete or move. Yesterday I got a letter from the council stating that after Grenfell disaster that I as a lease holder (I own the flat) need to provide a gas safety certificate an electrical certificate, and lastly that my front door needs to be a fire approved door. Thing is these fore doors cost upwards of 800 pounds and I can't afford that. In the past few years I did ask about a scheme that a neighbouring council borough do with you pay 25% of the total cost of a new door. they said they don't do this scheme. The letter says that they will seek legal action against anyone who doesn't conform. On a side note council tenants get it for free Any advice appreciated.
  4. It's not rubbish it's actually quite misleading and the v5 misnomer is very much debated on various forums. And where and how I acquire my friends is really none of your business.
  5. Yeah but I don't own it. The dvla log book says so. I've seen this argument before it's a mystery that no one can work out sneaky dvla monsters keep it quiet.
  6. The v5 says not proof of ownership. I'm just saying what is then?
  7. John smith was what I typed here to protect my identity. And yes I did purchase the car but after reading my v5 apparently I'm not the owner? Worth a try I rekon.
  8. Also if they don't accept that will I be able to still pay reduced rate?
  9. I sent an email to their representations department saying this. Vehicle registration ******* I write to say that as per the DVLA "log book" JOHN SMITH is not the owner of above registration or vehicle. Please write to the owner to resolve this matter. Is this ok to do? I didn't sign off as anyone that's all I said?
  10. So you suggest just paying it? No dispute for this extortionate legal mugging?
  11. Any suggestions then? Another thing is that the 21 days is up tomorrow and I have only just received this due to marital troubles. Will they accept that if I do end up paying?
  12. Sorry one more thing. As I'm actually separated from my wife and not actually staying at the address where the letter went, could I just ignore as we're moving next week, and if it ever came on top deny receiving the notice? And sign a statutory declaration? Thanks.
  13. Some more info. It's 45 contravention I wasn't fully parked in the bay half my car was in the road like over the marked taxi bay, 10 secs I was there maybe 20 but no more than that just while my gf jumped in.
  14. Might be worth adding that there were no taxis in the rank at all.
  15. Hello all I parked in a taxi rank for 10 secs literally to pickup my girlfriend and been issued a 130 pound fine! Wow can't believe it. Anyway they have a photo of my car. What options do I have? I'm getting divorced so I didn't get this letter until today (was nearly 3 weeks ago) and moving home soon. Should I just ignore this? Can they affect my credit rating or send bailiffs round. I'm not leaving a forwarding address either. Please help.
  16. Hi all Scottish power say they need to inspect my meter which is fine with me, only after 5 pm or any weekend which I have told them. They say it has to be a "morning slot at 9-12" or "a afternoon between 12-5" and no weekends. This is not acceptable with me as I would have to take a day off work. Anyone know where I stand with this situation? Many thanks.
  17. Hi guys I had an accident in my car genuinely just spun out at a roundabout it hit 2 other cars , at the scene not one of the police officers mentioned any dangerous driving nor the other drivers. But 2 months later I received a letter saying that if I attended a driver awareness course (150 quid ) and a day off work they would not prosecute. I was outraged because I had done nothing wrong and felt I was being spoofed in some way. I wrote them a letter saying no I won't attend and if they want they can prosecute. Well now they are they sent me a summons last week with two conflicting witness statements one of the witnesses says that I was exiting the roundabout at excessive speed. what can I do? Please someone help. Thanks.
  18. Hi again, But I dont know any details specific to my loan, like when I took it out, the policy number, the person who sold it to me, anything all I can remember is the bank- Nat West. I was thinking that I could ask one of these ppi companies to see whether or not I can claim and then do it myself? Thanks.
  19. Thanks for the help guys I will get on it tomorrow. Thanks
  20. Hello I took a loan out about 4-5 years ago and Im not sure if I had PPI on it or not, I have no paper work on it at all. I was wondering could I make my own claim rather than going to a company who will take a large portion of the prospective claim refund? Thanks
  21. Reported to OFT and Trading Standards, not heard anything from HFO for about 8 months now, so fingers crossed. Many thanks to all the knowledgeable people that helped us get through that.
