  1. Seems a bit surreal have just been denied a breakdown because the car was within 1/4 mile of my home despite being 0.4 miles by road. If I want to claim I have to pay £60 now + add £6 a month to my policy. Ive had a look at the policy and it states within 1/4 mile. Nothing about it being measured in pigeon miles. I'd go as far as to say the whole things crazy. I guess what i'm wondering is do I have any grounds for complaint?, luckily my dad has been able to recover on his but its still a major inconvenience and I just cant get the logic other than them deliberately trying to get out of a recovery. They are a road company that even offer navigation services yet measure through the sky when it suits. Rant over.
  2. Hello I am in receipt of CB ESA with the support component having been migrated from Incapacity Benefit several years ago. I also receive DLA High Rate Mobility and High Rate Care. I had no entitlement to Income Related benefits as partner was in full time employment. New scenario - Partner has to leave employment due to chronic lung condition. We ask at Jobcentre how and who should claim. Were told partner should make separate claim for ESA which he did. Was placed in support group without a medical. When he asked for housing costs (SMI) to be included, these were added from 13th week, (this was waiting period at the time). My question is - When I advised DWP of the change of circumstances (partner leaving employment), should this have prompted a supersession exercise to establish potential entitlement to Income Related ESA, and the issue of form ESA3 ? If my claim had been made into the joint claim would SMI have been payable straight away or would I be subject to the waiting period. In addition to housing costs, several premiums would also be included in the applicable amount. I have raised this query with DWP and have a letter that says if I had made the claim for Income Based ESA, I would still have had to serve the 13 week qualifying period. Having looked online the information I have found suggests this is incorrect. Any thoughts on this would be gratefully received. Thank you.
  3. Last year out of nowhere I received a warrant for execution for a CCJ that I had no knowledge of. It transpired that it related to an old overdraft with HSBC that I knew nothing about. The claim was filed by Lowell who had never contacted me regarding the debt at any time. I arranged to have the Judgment set aside and then proceeded to defend the claim. Judgment has now been found against me and I want to know if anyone can advise me as to what to do next. I have no knowledge of an account with HSBC and never used one. Lowell have not provided any application form showing that I opened it or used it. The only evidence they have provided is some copy bank statements from their own database. The account is in a variation of my name - not the name I used. I in fact had a different bank account at the time - have had it and used it for over 10 years. First question therefore - if they do not have an application form or any other form of official evidence - is that enough basis for a claim? I cannot believe that some print-outs from the claimant's own computer is sufficient evidence of anything but is there a legal authority on this point? Second point, the overdraft was "called in" in 2007 but the claim was issued in 2014. I disputed this as being statute barred. In response Lowell suddenly came up with a spreadsheet from their own computer database with payments supposedly made my me and therefore claimed that it was capable of being the subject of a claim. They have not provided any evidence linking me to these payments - they are just dates, amounts and say they were made by "standing order" (but no details of the bank they were made from). I have spoken to my bank and they confirm no standing order payments or payments of any kind were made on the dates they allege. Do they not have to show where the payments came from? I am now in the position where I need to decide whether to apply to have the Judgment set aside again and dispute it further but having already failed once I am a bit concerned about this. I cannot understand how they can have a valid claim when they have no evidence other than that mentioned above. How did the Judge find in their favour? I can't afford to make the application to the Court unless I have some solid evidence behind me to fight my corner.... . which is why I am posting on here. Can anyone point me in the right direction or give me some pointers on how to fight this? I have reported the account to Action Fraud but I don't feel that Lowell will investigate this properly as it is in their interest not too! If they find evidence of identity theft or fraud - then they don't get their money! I have also reported Lowell to the Financial Ombudsman as I think they are wrong to pursue a statute barred claim. Any help here would really be appreciated as I am at a real loss.
  4. Why am I not at all surprised that the delusional shower in the EU of Brussels bureaucrats who are going all out to create to create a super state, have produced a medals table from the Olympics, lumping all 28 member states together under the EU flag. Which means the EU is top of the medals table ahead of the USA.! which is a load of cobblers as more than a quarter of the golds have been won by the UK, even though we have voted to leave what a grubby arrogant organisation, the EU is.

  5. I have had an ongoing claim with Jet2 for compensation following a fight delay in Feb 2011. There are six family members in the group, my wife and I, and four children under 16. I am the lead passenger and paid for the flights and the booking was made using my Jet2 account. It was a technical fault and they have been using the “unexpected circumstances” excuse since 2011, and most recently said they were waiting the outcome of their appeal to the Supreme Court which they said would affect the outcome of my claim. When the Supreme Court refused permission for them to appeal, I wrote again asking for the full amount plus interest. They have now asked me to submit a separate claim for each individual or they won’t consider them. This is the first time since I first claimed in 2011 that they have made such a request. After my initial claim, they made a partial pay-out for our allocated seats booking-fee, all on the same claim. So they have the all the passenger details and they have even partially paid out on the claim. I am inclined just to go straight to the County Court now because they are obviously just time-wasting. In my most recent letter, I said that if they did not inform me within 14 days of how and when they are going to compensate me, I would pursue the matter in the court. Am I now justified in taking them to court? Is it reasonable of me to expect a reply in two weeks after an almost four year on-going case ? Their normal reply time is six to eight weeks. If I don’t submit the claims again individually, would they be able to use that as reason for not paying if I go to County Court? Many Thanks

  8. Today, I've received a count summons from the council... Background... I get paid on the 6th of the month, I have over the years called the council and asked to setup a direct debit for the 6th (i.e. pay day). They have refused and said the payment due date is the 1st of the month. Each month (for years now), I make a manual electronic payment on or after the 6th of the month. In this case (last month) I got the amount slightly wrong and was £20 in arrears. I did receive a notification letter from them, but thought I'll just add the £20 owed onto the amount next month. I made the full payment on Monday (yesterday), so no outstanding balance on the account. The summons was also dated yesterday. The Council has caused this problem by being really inflexible and not accepting my direct debit payment on the 6th of the month. I'm a little stressed by this all to be honest. Just wanted a view point on what I should do ? any advise ? Where do I stand with it ? I cannot afford to pay the full amount due, but have no problem paying the monthly dues. Thanks.
  9. Well this is news to me,but according to the Marstons bailiff who I spoke to following being called by a relative after they turned up to execute a MCW it is too late to even challenge. On informing them that I did know about the rules given that I was a site team member of the CAG,the Marstons bailiff went on to say that this site is full of bad advice and wrong advice. I had to think as to whether I had told him CAG or else something which sounds like CAG that I had not yet seen. Here I am taking about a warrant that was passed following a fines order for no TV licence. The person concerned was in hospital for a lenthly period at the time of both the Mags hearing,and the demand to pay the fine. My understanding is that the costs/fine was around 120 quid. Marstons paid a visit when there was no one at home. After being asked to help out,Marstons was advised via their website (screenshot is available) that the person is on ESA benefits does not seek to evade paying the fine but that they should suspend action as notice was being made to the Court seeking time to pay. Yesterday Marstons turned up in a van with 2 bailiffs and a bill in excess of £500 quid. If you are reading Marstons,you have not heard the last of this. The 9 days you have given to pay your charges-will certainly be put to good use.
