  1. Parked in a residents` or shared use parking place or zone without either clearly displaying a valid permit or voucher or pay and display ticket issued for that place, or without payment of the parking charge (shared use bay) This was the reasoning for being given a PCN (hire car at the time) - wrote to them straight away stating that there were no pictures taken of the vehicle as none were uploaded on council's website - "no images were found for this PCN!" council responded saying wait until you receive notice to owner but not having photos isn't sufficient grounds as they don't ne
  2. As a landlord I am continuously surprised at what tenants will allow them selves to be conned into, this tale hurts my sense of fair play to tenants and I hope you guys can help. My friend is the 4th tenant T4, in a shared flat above a shop in south London (shop also owned by LL). It seems to be on individual contracts. The LL assigned my friend T4 with the responsibility of paying the metered supply water bill to the water company (lets call them WC as I am not sure who they are as yet). She calls WC and they arrange 1/4ly DD of £300. Although they did not change the name on the b
  3. Sorry guys, i took the lazy approach and ignored everything again. I have received nothing for a long time and then suddenly a letter from Cabot saying they are passing my debt to Ruthbridge, a debt collection agency. In the same envelope (is money too tight to post 2 letters?) A letter from Ruthbridge saying to contact them. I had a message on my answerphone.. This is a call for (silence) Please contact us using your reference. Thats it. I googled the number to see Ruthbridge mentioned. This is a Citi card debt with the last payment in 2006. So long past being

  5. I made a cca request of Lloyds in 2011 over a credit card that dated back to 2003, I have carried on making cca requests of all of DCA,s that have contacted me, I am still being contacted by Robinson way some 7 years later. I point out that many of the DCA,S have written to me after deed of assignment. I have only ever been supplied with a copy of the application form, Robinson way tell me when I have pointed this out, that the application form is enough to demonstrate liability. Can anyone help me to bring this to an end as it is wearing me out. Best wishes Little Feet

  8. I'm looking for some wise advice from those more experienced than I with insurance and subsidence claims. Our house (circa 1890 semi-detached) is on a small slope and had some evidence of small "historical" movements when we bought it 20 years ago. Very little has changed since, and a structural engineer didn't mention subsidence in an inspection 4 years ago. However, it seems the neighbour's house has developed cracks near the party wall in the last few years, and they seem to suspect OUR house is to blame as we are further down the (small) incline. They say they have inspection reports
  9. Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Common Sense, who has been with us for many years. No one knows for sure how old he was, since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape. He will be remembered as having cultivated such valuable lessons as: - Knowing when to come in out of the rain; - Why the early bird gets the worm; - Life isn't always fair; - And maybe it was my fault. Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies (don't spend more than you can earn) and reliable strategies (adults, not children, are in charge). His he
  10. i received today a notice to keeper penalty charge notice saying i had to pay 100 pound for an offence i did not commit i was not the driver. the date that the offence was supposed to be committed on the notice to keeper letter was 30/08/16 which is a total fabrication as my car had not even manufactured then it was first registered in November 2017. i think they made a boo boo about the alleged date the offence was committed, any advice would be much appreciated
  11. Family member is looking for an older car and has visited several smaller dealers to test their offerings. In many cases these car dealers won't accept part or full payment by credit card !!!! Some offering personal warranties, not even these insurance backed ones which are not worth the paper they are written on. This means they are trying to effect a private sale with no come back on them if things go wrong. In all cases, price is not negotiable, even without a trade in. This is happening in East Central Scotland-----How do dealers operate in your area??. The other thing that is ratt

  13. Hi I pay smpl on Morgage but they are Acenden now. I've just sent them a Sar in the hope of reclaiming charges as I know I was in arrears about 7 or more years ago with capstone what's my chance of success here? I've just noticed they have cashed the cheque and £10 has been credited to my Morgage account. Is this normal practise?
  14. There is a registered all monies charge against my house. It relates to a business banking loans/overdraughts etc that were subsequently repaid. The LTD company was wound up in 2010. Shortly thereafter commercial recoveries contacted me regards how I proposed to repay outstanding monies. I replied that as far as I was aware it was all taken care of. That was the end of that for a couple of years, I was contacted again as above and gave the same response with similar effect. I was contacted a couple of years ago in the same manner but this time it started to escalate i.e. threatening to

  16. Just had a thought.. I was told some time ago to not use EXACT personal details on sites like GOCOMPARE and COMPAREMARKET etc, and just change name, and use a door 3 doors away.. this is so you don't rack up searches on your credit file.. I just spent a 30 mins changing loads of info, and called one of the top 3 companies that come up, but then thought they would know all the chnages I have made as they will have access to the sites I was on? They asked for my post code (i used my real one) and then penny dropped what if they think I am trying tyo screw them over??

  19. Hi, Can anyone offer me any advice on an issue I have with the FOS. I took out life and critical illness cover through a tied broker in 2012. In 2016 I claimed and my claim was turned down by the insurer as they did not know about surgery I'd had prior to applying for insurance. Trouble is both me and the wife know we told the brokers agent all about the surgery on the night he came to get our signatures after checking the application. I made my initial call on the 14/4/12, their agent visited my home on 17/4/12. The FOS got involved after my complaint to th

  21. I've been on benefits due to health issues for quite a long time now, I was on Incap Ben until Oct 2013 when they moved me to ESA and that's been static since then. Not had any kind of increase in 4yrs. In 2014 I finally had a diagnosis of one of my health issues that had been ignored for years by doctors... Dismissing my issue as weight related when it was in fact a condition called Spinal Stenosis... which is 'made' worse by being overweight. This explained the shocking spasms in my lower back which could turn my legs to jelly and make me slump to the floor at any time
  22. Hi all, I am close to paying off a secured loan. The balance of £988.00 is made up of the fees and interest on fees levied over the past 7 years. I want to have these charges refunded and this will clear my balance. Should I send a letter before action and should I charge intererst.
  23. Hi all, Back in Nov 2015 i bought an Audi A5 Sports Convertible, 2012 reg, for £16,600 from a massive London based car dealer. In June this year I've decided to sell it as they worry of it devaluing in time was too much for me so i wasn't really able to enjoy the car anymore. I've tried taking it back to the same dealer but they were only able to offer me £13,000 after a quick check (this amount being subject to a thorough investigation). The guy told me the car is in a really good condition and i should have no problem selling it privately for about £14,500. So after advertising it
  24. Hi, I don't know if I'm posting this in the right place but I need help. My daughters boyfriend has just received an eviction notice, stating the eviction will take pkace a week on Thursday. I'm currently sketchy on the details but it's all due to problems with housing benefits etc. Hes had a nightmare of a couple f years, he was persuaded to take a 16 hour a week job because he was on DLA and could claim working tax credits, he also kept his housing benefit. He then lost his claim to DLA when he had to change to pip and so lost his working tax credits. He also lost his housi
