  1. Hi All,my sister just got turned down for her first mortgage due to 2 fairly recent defaults (last 2 years).Now shes pretty sure she never got these default notices (1 natwest & 1 santander) and both of these are more or less made of bank charges.She lives with my mum and the address although it's a house comes up as a flat for a reason so they don't always get their post.Would she have a case to have them removed on the basis she never rec'd them?Many thanksLisa

  2. Hi Alastrum,

    Just wanted to say that sometimes some people just like complaining. They feel it gives them the upper hand and makes them feel superior. I've had this a few times in various places that I've lived.

    First house (iwas a council tenant) and neighbors had bought their council house for about 2p years ago so felt that every time my kids played ball in the garden etc, they could call council and say we were being a nuisance. What they were trying to get really was a new fence off the council by saying my kids had ruined it by kicking a ball against it constantly (they didn't as I wouldn't allow them to do it).

    We were lucky enough to be able to buy our house a few years back, however it's not been plain sailing here either with one neighbour (everyone else lovely).

    First complaint: we own a second hand bouncy castle and she asked one summer for me to turn it off when it wasnt being used (kids had popped out for a bit). I honestly thought she was knocking to borrow it which she could of as she has twins of 7. When I asked why shecouldnt answer me.

    2/ she complained about my elder daughter!s friend parking near the end of her drive (not near the 1metre dropped kern bit that she has though)! This has been ongoing.

    3/ icing on the cake this year has her been screaming and swearing through the walls during the night as my son has been screaming/crying during the night. Just to add that my son has been under the care of great Ormond street hospital for a gut problem for the past year hence the unsettled nights (she is aware of this). now if he cries over anything she has made me completely paranoid.

    Sorry for the rant! But my point is some people just get off on the fact that they can rule how you live your life. It is in fact bullying and I've found that as soon as you give into it then that's it. Consequently, I am now desperate to move as I feel she (who is younger than me by the way-late 30's) is just waiting for the next thing to start on.

    And honestly when I say that this house shuts down by 9 as I take my 2 youngest to bed and the eldest is up by 5 am for work each day.

    Good luck with whatever action you decide to take :)

  3. Hi ims,

     

    all i have are the statements going back as far as jan02.

     

    He's pretty sure he had a few loans before these other ones on this account also but maybe lloyds arent going to send any earlier than this?

     

    The statements go as far as feb 06 (where he paid his loan off early).

     

    1/ Jan 02 he has amount borrowed £1407.00 (doesn't mention ppi but he says he took it out on EVERYTHING - he's sure of that.

     

    2/ 21/11/02 borrows £5000 and same day 'loan protection insurance loan advance' debits his loan acc also (£1174.85)

     

    3/ 16/0503 £5800 balance transfer to new loan

     

    4/ 16/5/03 £4139 borrowed and again same day 'loan protection insurance loan advance' debits acc (£2212)

     

    5/ 27/8/04 Pays balance of loan off early

     

    6/ 27/8/04 receives rebate of loan protection insurance (just noticed this now)

     

    He also borrowed another £8k in feb 05 but I cant see any ppi on that and again he paid it off early (feb 06).

     

    So he's obviously rec'd some back for early repayment but would he be entitled to any more?

     

    Many thanks and I hope this makes some sense x

  4. Hi All,

    it's been quite a while since I've last been on!

     

    I have just started dealing with a load of PPI claims for the family (total of 21)!

     

    I only began on 5th oct and so far have had 16 replies

    - 1 not upheld (dorothy perkins saying that they don't believe they have mis-sold),

    2 who say I didn't have PPi and the rest just acknowledgements of the claims.

     

    I will post up any other advances as they come in.

     

    I just have a couple of questions if someone could please help me out?

     

    I spoke to my brother today who stupidly has got a claim company chasing a few loans on his behalf ( lloyds).

     

    He did this before he knew I was getting my teeth into the ppi business!

     

    So is there any way he can get out of using them now ( he said he's signed something).

    They must have requested his statements as they arrived today and clearly show he paid ppi which was 'front loaded' if that's the right term?now,

     

    in nov 02 he took out 5k and

    paid 1174.85 up front in ppi 'loan advance'.

    In may 03 he takes out another 4139.64 and pays another ppi up front of 2212.10

    .It looks as though he borrowed another 8k in feb 05 but I can't see any ppi on that statement.

     

    That's as much as they've sent so far so poss more to come.

     

    The loans are all paid up now so based on those figures could anyone hazard a guess what he would be owed?

    Many thanks in advance

  5. Just read the article myself and obviously not surprised as we all know on here it's a regular occurence but I was more shocked by the comments underneath. I can only hope it was bailiffs commenting on the case!

    I still cannot believe in this day and age this goes on but I know it does from personal experience (on more than 1 occasion)!

    The NOTW is a powerful medium and we MUST comment to the author in the hope of the government taking notice (long shot I know)!

  6. Hi All,

     

    just wondered if someone could offer any advice. Basically, my sister worked for just over a year for a company (same co. as me also but different dept).

    Whilst there she was being bullied by her co-worker over most of the time there. She decided she'd had enough and didn't want a fuss so went to hand in her notice.

    Her boss wouldn't accept it and asked why she decided to go as her work was exemplary and her boss hadn't noticed anything amiss. My sis didn't want to mention the bullying and just wanted to go quietly. The boss obviously had an inkling and would not let it go and said 'please tell me as I don't want to go and I know it's more than you're letting on'.

    So she explained what had been going on and the boss said ' I totally understand as she's a bit like that with me also!' That made my sis feel better as she thought she was going a bit mad but couldn't believe the boss was putting up with it!

    Anyway her boss said it would be very hard to prove as it would be her word against the bully's and when she had approached the bully before about certain things in the past she would just break down and cry and the boss would feel sorry for her!

    To be fair, they did offer her another job in another dept. just to keep her but as she knew she'd still have some dealings with the bully, she accepted and later declined the offer as she didn't feel strong enough at that time to cope.

    She had taken time off while all this was going on and just couldn't cope with ever returning. She e-mailed her notice and made her apologies.

    A few weeks later she got a call from personnel and they asked why she had gone but she didn't let on and make it official (God knows why as I would have handled it very differently)! I suppose she just wanted to draw a line under the whole episode.

    She told personnel that she needed to spend some time with her disabled son to sort out a new school for him which she did but it wouldn't have made her leave her job.

    Fast forward 6 months and she applied for a lovely job, great hours etc and felt confident enough to go for it. She beat 165 other applicants and was offered the job subject to references etc.

    This morning, she rec'd a letter to say they were withdrawing their offer due to one of the references. So she called the woman who offered her the job and although she couldn't give too much info she said something had been put on the reference and there was no way they would let her appeal because of it.

    She is naturally gutted and has been crying all day and feels that she is being victimised all over again. Under the freedom of info act she is going to request a copy of the reference but that doesn't help right now.

    I am on maternity leave at the moment which is a good thing as I know I would have ended up losing my job today as I would have confronted both bully and boss and really lost it.

    My sis wrote to her old boss a couple of months after leaving and thanked her for everything she had helped her with (what a joke that is now)! but never heard back.

    I thought there was no such thing as a bad reference? So on future references she is going to have to erase that part of her employment history and lie if she wants another job.

    God I'm so bloody angry myself now!:mad: Anyway needed to get that off my chest.

    Can any of you good people offer any advice on what she could do now?

    Many thanks

  7. just rang the court and they advised me to call DG sols direct. Spoke to a fairly nice person! And they have advised suspending the warrant and they will agree to a low payment every month to clear the £3k.

    Feel much better now - couldn't sleep properly all night!

    Many thanks

  8. Sorry - just been through all of my paperwork regarding this claim and hsbc did threaten a charging order months ago and were granted an interim one (i think - sorry this has been a really tough year and I have loads of other debts and stuff going on) but I'm sure I never got notification of a final charging order being granted.

    But if it has then surely they wouldn't be chasing for a warrant of execution?

    Lisa :confused:
