  3. Hi My friend is a carer for her husband who has early onset dementia they are both 62 he is on income based ESA and she also has health problems including several strokes, angina attacks and has difficulty getting out as she has fainting fits. Last week she had to attend a compliance meeting, it seems that her husband has a works pension and a building society account which she was not aware of ( he left her for another woman and only came back to her when he started becoming ill so there are parts of his life she didn't share), she has had no letters addressed to him from either th
  4. Hi guys 1st post My mother has an outstanding debt with bailiffs for Council Tax. She had an agreement with bailiffs to pay it off and defaulted after 2 payments as she could not afford it. Now they want the amount in full. They say they have requested for 'Commital to prison' which scared my mother until i explained it to her. They do not have a 'Controlled Goods Agreement' at all I have today disputed the amount as the bailiffs starting balance doesn't match what is owed to the Council. To be clear this is before any alleged fee's from the bailiffs themselves.
  5. Hi All, Please bear with me. I was made redundant over a year ago, and as a single Mum, I've just started my own business, but am still relying heavily on benefits while I find my feet - financially. Our landlady's told us she's selling the house in June and as we've been here for 5 years and are so happy and settled, I'd love to somehow be able to buy it. The house is expected to go on the market for 220K. My mum recently sold her house and has a 30K deposit she can give us and I'm now considering the following options: 1. My ex, who earns a good wage (100K) can 'Buy to
  6. I recently fell behind with some rent payments, which I'm now paying back. My Landlord issued a claim for possession through the courts and the hearing date is in April, however, today I received a form 6a from the Landlord and I'm really confused! Does this go hand in hand with the Court hearing? It appears tactics have changed. How do I stand with a 6a as it states 'no fault possession. The Court claim says it's due to rent arrears. Please could anyone shed some light on it for me?
  7. Hey peeps, Just wondering if I could be entitled to working tax credits? From the info put into the calculator it says I am entitled but how I make the earnings might been seen as not like a normal "job". So since mum passed away, I have been all over the place, trying to figure out what I can do next. As far back as 15 years ago I was involved with the "paid to read/click" scene (Around the time when E-gold "bubble games" were a thing). That scene has now completely vanished. Soon after, I moved on to doing online surveys. A year or 2 ago I started taking them more serious
  8. The ABLE GROUP provide property maintenance services, ie glaziers, locksmiths, plumbers, electricians, drainage, gas, heating, pest control, etc. Please note however: If you need any such services, I suggest you look elsewhere. I have had the most horrendous experience with them and I hope my post helps others avoid going through the same horror story. Booked them to clear my house external drains, was quoted £114 to have them 4 drains unblocked. On the 7th of April, their Eng. came out, informed that the drains were now in good working order. My other half took his word for it
  9. Hi Just wondering if it is possible to claim and what to claim back from Quick Quick. I have had a total of 21 Loans from 2011-dec 2013 of which at least 2 of these where rolled over, at the moment there is an outstanding balance on the last one which was rolled over 5 times. at the time these loans where taken out my credit file was shot and i was just about making ends meet as i had 2 mortgages to pay. I was also able too take out loans with TXT Loans - Paid off Payday Express - negotiated a settlement figure and cleared account Payday UK - loan still outstanding was paying £1
  10. I have just moved into a housing association property and i'm just wondering how much CT reduction I can expect to receive? I'm a single person living there. I know the rate is 25% discount for that, so I assumed that I would pay 3/4 of the full bill (It's £120 a month So I would pay £90). However when I go on benefit calculators such as the turn2us benefits calculator, it says I will only have to pay £5 a week towards CT. My details: I'm claiming carers allowance and IS (£420 a month) Rent: £400 a month (Applied for housing benefit, shared rate as i'm under 35 which will
  11. Lousy Service, possible Breach of Contract? I phoned them and asked them if they could repair a tilt and turn window in a rental property They said that they could and quoted three prices (depending on what work needed to be done) which I agreed and furnished my credit card details. An appointment was made for a few days later. On the morning of the appointment the engineer telephoned me and when leaning it is a tilt and turn, said he could not do it. I complained to the company and Mr R**** sent me, (to the wrong address), an insulting reply saying they are not c
  12. Hi folks, this is in response to the above which I saw in an old thread for Able group. The reason I have quoted the above is because I have just experience a similar issue, if not worse. Back in December the boiler in our flat spring a small leak. Call Able, an Eng came out, credit card details given, call out charge taken then he says it needs this and that. he was told to proceed, as it was urgent and he then spends 3 hrs working on the boiler. He hands over a bill for £270 which is is then deducted immediately from my card. He then stated he needed to come back with a new thermo
  13. Hi, Life is full of issues and only this forum eases the pain:) Here's my problem: Back at the end of December 2012, i had a pipe burst in the bathroom, at which i called the Able Group emergency number and booked a plumber to come and fix the burst pipe. The plumber arrived within 2 hrs, saw to the problem, replaced a plastic fitting, paid him £150 through credit card. Everything was fine up to today when the same problem happened again. Switched off the mains water supply and on closer look the same fitting as per plumber failed. So rang Able Group, spoke to a customer se

  25. Hello all. A few months ago, I was diagnosed with plantar fasciitis. I'm sure if any of you have had this condition or any knowledge of it, you will appreciate just how painful and debilitating it is. Having this condition, means that standing and walking is extremely painful and on some days is impossible at all and I literally have to crawl on my hands and knees to get about my home. The condition usually takes around 18 months or so to heal. The condition is worsened by standing and walking on hard surfaces. I work for quite a large national company and have done so for over 7
