About Me


  1. Hi, My landlord is wanting to send estate agents round to value the property because he wants to put it on the market. He has not yet served me with a Section 21 notice so I have no idea when he is expecting me to vacate but I would have thought a valuation would be more realistic once the house is empty and after he can do some redecorating, etc to get it ready for selling. At the moment, we have been too stressed over searching for a new home and we have been having a mad declutter and we have half packed boxes everywhere and the housework has become less of a priority, so al

  4. We learned yesterday that our entire catering team are to be made redundant as the contract we are working under has been terminated. But we also know that the new building owner has every intention of providing catering when they take over in a few months! This cannot be fair and surely that is what the TUPE regulations are designed for - does anyone have any advice?
  5. Hi, I'm in am unusual position, I think. Back in 2003 I had a cracking salary and mega limits on my credit cards (46k) I was made redundant after I became mentally unwell and so went back to uni. I *asked* the credit card companies to reduce my limits (not wanting to get rid of my cards altogether) but they refused. Point blank refused. Later that year I became ill again and was diagnosed with bipolar. I managed to spend £21,000 in 3 months, with very little to show for it (or take back!) The banks refused to help. I paid back just under 1/2. I now hav
  6. Dear Forum, I am a building services consulting engineer by profession and have also started up 2 small businesses, one of which is Nationwide Recovery Ltd. I unwittingly employed a person who had some serious past and pending convictions, he initially befriended me by selling me a vehicle. Unfortunately, I purchased a recovery vehicle to start the business amongst other vehicles to sell and trade with. I have a motor traders insurance policy.I am due to attend Magistrates Court on April 4th to claim ownership of 2 vehicles. The person concerned disowned his claim to 2 more vehicles
  7. Good morning all! Basically after a bit of advice. The company that i work in has been taken over and we all got TUPE'd over and after reorganisation of the company I am going to be made redundant in the near future. Being disabled I am only fit enough to work about 22 hours a week and I get enhanced rate in both the Mobility and Care components of PIP (as well as Disabled tax credit which will end soon after I am made redundant). I presumed after being made redundant I would be able to go on JSA whilst I found another part time job. But then I discovered that like most areas singl
  8. This is more for my own information as we may be in a simliar position soon but I was pass any useful infirmation on. The company I used to work for are currently looking to make staff cuts. They have put all staff under threat of redundancy. A Number of positions are being cut with the remaining ones having changes made to their title, terms etc. and staff invited to apply for these positions. One individual requested and applied for voluntary redundancy or early retirement. This was refused. He has then decided not apply for any of the postions. The company in respo
  9. Could someone help me understand what "Moved within area" means. I recently applied for housing benefit and got a letter from them saying that claim has been cancelled and "Moved within area - Please reply."? Any help please?
  10. Hi all, Been a while and I find myself on here hoping to get some advice I bought a nearly new Audi from a main dealership last month (15th) on finance (VWFS) I literally drove it from the dealership to the house and that was it until the next day where it "seemed" fine. The day after, I found myself having to email/book in the car for a number of rattles/squeaks - one of which was fairly obvious, another not so but loud enough to record it on the phone. It got seen to the following week and came back with the main noise fixed - the other could not be replicated. Soon as I
  11. Someone who signs on daily like me when he was in on Friday he was given a date to sign back on again after the holidays and he said to me the adviser who signed him on said the office for the computers use is open to Wednesday if u would like to use them he said no he can jobsearch at home she said something back but he can remember what but was he wondering will anything happen if he doesn't go in to use the computers? Or nothing can happen due to not been given a letter or a mandatory letter to come in to the office? He would like some info because he doesn't want to be worried about h
  12. After an accident I had in 89 i was left with real bad problems with head and legs, i was able to get on and do some work but have had many operations since then. in 2006 i managed to get a job with local council but then got transferred under TUPE. my Legs hips and depression started to get worse and in July last year i was made redundant. on 3rd July last year I put a claim in for ESA, since the claim started i have had some 50+ medical appointments, and last December I had an operation to repair a muscle on left hip, this operation has failed and i am unable to walk any distance and
  13. Hi have a similar issue i want to discuss but i can not seem to make a thread.
  14. Hi everyone, My wife have accounts with Barcalys which were opened in the early 90s. Apart from recent statements, she does not have any other paper works. There are definitely charges and possibly PPI but we need proof before making any complaint. We made a SAR request in Feb 2015 and a LBA went out three weeks ago (April) giving them 7 days but they have not bothered to respond at all yet both letters were signed for. I now want to get a court order for them to comply but I am not sure of how to go about. Which form do I use? How much will it cost?
  15. Hi all, I have a question for you... A few days ago, on the 31st Dec, I made a purchase with my smile debit card, for £10.00, the transaction was of course accepted and on my way I went. Then on the 2nd Jan Smile charged me the monthly fee of £13.00 for my smile more account, again which is fine. On the 3rd Dec, the £10.00 from the first transaction shows up, Smile informed me they had paid this despite me not having enough funds to pay for this transaction, and puts me £9.08 over my OD limit. I then paid in £35 at around midday on the 3rd Jan(The same day as the payment w
  16. Hi Guys, wondering if anyone can help me/provide some advice. A couple of years ago my landlord (Housing association) applied for a possession order. At the time my rent arrears were around 2k. I agreed with the judge to pay back the arrears at the rate of around £15 per week. I have recently had a period of unemployment and as such fell behind with my agreement, and for the last 6 months or so have only worked sporadically, usually not applying for HB when I havent been working. As the arrears have risen to about 2300 I recently called my landlord to let them know I had secur
  17. I have a Capital One account which has for some time been with Robinson Way, in November 2008 I sent Robinson Way a CCA request today I have received this. It looks very similar to other Capital One agreements I have seen posted I assume they are claiming that the two pages are front and back of the same document, however, I have some questions If the lines on the first document are folds and not evidence of a cut and paste why do the not show on the second page? The first page shows two barcodes top right and bottom left, they have complet
  18. Hello All, I live in a London council flat purchased a year ago (2014), there is a roof space size of a bed room that i want to insert a roof window. Also In 2009 I inserted a full size door to lead to the roof space.This wasn't discovered when purchase survey was carried out. Question is what do i need to do to get the permission? and also do i have to apply for a retrospective permission for the door or has this already passed a limit? Thanks in advance
  19. Hello everyone I would like to know if my boyfriend who is spanish can apply for the british passport. Last month he got a warning from the police because of domestic violence ( he fought with his neighbours...).

  20. Theoldrouge…. Ever so slightly concerned you quote. If the lender or owner has been in regular contact with the customer during the limitation period, the firm may continue to attempt to recover the debt. Clearly they have contacted me on many occasions I just have never made any payment or formally acknowledged the debt?
  21. Almost on a daily basis I receive an enquiry on this subject from either a debtor, solicitor or a police officer. Hopefully this thread will assist. Under the new bailiff regulations an enforcement agent has a general right without a warrant to enter debtor’s premises to search for and take control of goods. The legislation is Paragraph 14.1 of schedule 12 of the Tribunal Courts and Enforcement Act 2007 In cases where a Controlled Goods Agreement has been previously signed, the bailiff may have re-entry rights into the premises under Paragraph 16.
  22. Today my wife received a package from Drydens with a copy of an application to remove a stay and proceed in court. It was stayed on the 28th Dec 2013 after they never came back to court following sending our defence. Brief outline wife got cancer credit card unhelpful when couldn't pay so didn't pay. Sygma bank wouldn't supply information asked for and issued default. drydens also wouldn't supply info but eventually supplied copy of agreement which we noticed although signed by my wife it was unsigned by the bank. I am defending the case under PO
  23. I signed on at the job centre on Wednesday.When i was there my advisor gave me 3 jobs to apply for and said i had to apply for them before i sign on again in 2 weeks on the 5/11/14.

Today iv gone in to Universal job match to find them and apply for them.Iv found and applied for 2 of them but i cant find the third even with the universal match job ID.It was definitely on there at some point because the advisor had printed it out to give to me. My question is surel
  24. A few queries on this but for now: The claimant was in receipt of a 2012/13 Indefinite award and they have a carer Letter dated 25th June from DPW inviting the claimant of DLA to now apply for PiP and giving them 4 Weeks to make the claim. The letter states if they start the claim by 23rd July the DLA will continue until such time as the decision on the Pip Claim is made.? So/ Q1: Is this the actual claim inclusive of all the form filling or is for the initial 'calling them to apply for the form to make the claim? --- The claimant is physically disabled
