  1. hello all, i have a valid gas safety certificate until November the 3rd 2018. my landlord(local council) uses a heating company for the gas safety check,... they are being very overzealous and have been calling to do an 'ANNUAL' gas safety inspection since the beginning of August...this seems very strange as its 3 months early and they know it expires in November.?? I have came home and received calling cards when I have been out and on one occasion a calling card was left when i was on holiday...as it was August. today i received a letter from the council saying they ar
  2. I applied for a flat last week, and their credit check showed that I have a CCJ against my name. Apparently, it was registered back in 2014. I am not sure if it was a deafult judgement or not, to be honest. Can I still apply for this to be set aside? If so, how do I go about it?
  3. Hello all I am finally sitting down to deal with my SAR for PPi claim. I was all organised and have my cards with account number to send SAR however cards have vanished.... Now I no longer have account/card numbers what changes do I need to do to SAR when I am missing these details? I followed one of the ads on CAG which lead me to a company that does searches for you - Is it better for me to do it this way? Will them running this check effect my credit rating / will they need to run searches. Tired and old ! OSW
  4. Hello, Can someone confirm that a person on IVA or with DRO would not be able to apply for student loan of any kind?To my knowledge it's a loan for a four month beauty course.Thank you.

  6. Hello I am new to the forum and am hoping for some advice on behalf of my brother. I am hoping for some guidance on the process for applying to the courts to have a CCJ made by default judgement '"set aside" This is a really long story going back 12 years!!! My brother was victim of a car buying [problem] which went on some years ago which resulted in him receiving a fake cheque for the sale of his car. He took this cheque (unaware it was 'rubber') to HSBC Bank who cashed the cheque credited the £10k into my brothers bank account. My brother withdrew the mo
  7. Can anyone PLEASE offer me any advice on how he can apply descriptors to conditions? We have absolutely no idea how to apply these things? Can someone point us in the right direction? We really need some idea of how to link his condition specifically to the questions they ask you? Any info would be greatly appreciated.
  8. Hi all, I'm hoping someone with knowledge can help. UH are applying for a warrant to enter and fit a prepayment meter. The amount I owe is 349.65. This includes £200 security deposit. Ive got a bit behind but will be able to pay the actual 149.65 I owe next week. They are saying they wont accept that and will pursue the applucation on the basis that I still owe them 200.00. Can they do this? They were the supplier when i moved in and i told them I'd be happy to pay by dd but they wouldn't accept. Legally, is this 200 even a debt?? Thank you!
  9. I am about to move from a private lease to social housing and I need to apply for a community care grant to afford basic household appliances and furniture. On the online form with the local council (Scotland) there is a question asking me to specify "Allowable Benefit Type" and a drop down menu that does not contain the option to select working tax credits. Does this mean then that I can't apply for one of these if I am on WTC? I asked the local council on the phone but they were unable to tell me. EDIT. It does include WTC on the online form. I might be better just printi

  12. Hi Guys I live in private rented accommodation (since 2011) but I own 5 properties and would like to raise a small amount of finance against one of my properties (£5k - £10k) that has equity of around £100k. I am a self employed landlord and would appreciate any recommendations for a hassle-free way to raise a small loan. I'm fine with the lender taking out a first charge and I want to be able to repay early without any penalties. I don't want to have to submit accounts for such a small loan because I would be an idiot to risk losing a 2b flat in London that I've owned since 2008 hence
  13. 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
  14. Hi Just need some advice on situation, my other half is in an IVA through DMP which started last year I declined entering into one after seeking helpful advice on this forum. I would like to know whether he is able to still apply for section 78 on some of his creditors, Cabot, Drydens, Arrow Global Apex etc whilst in the IVA or would it not be advisable. We were both in a state and sold our house to stop getting into arrears with our mortgage a nd had to clear 2 charging orders and other bills solicitors and estate agent fees so were left with l
  15. Hi I am on grounds 10, 11 of my tenancy as i have dyspraxia and dyslexia. At times i have had irregular payments due to temporary jobs. I had a payment plan which is meant to be monthly but due to hardship i payed weekly including the arrears, but i asked if this was acceptable if not i would consider changing. they automatically applied for a suspended possession at court on the 21 April this year , are they in breach or wasting the court time or are they correct. I had told the reason I could not make full payments last month due to
  16. hi there, looking for a bit of advice, or to know if something could be possible.... my partner and i (unmarried, 4 kids, been together 20 years) currently have a joint mortgage which has recently changed from being fixed to being on a tracker. we can happily afford the payments at the moment but we're worried about rates going up in the next few years and would like to be on a fixed rate again. the flat we own we are currently renting out, the mortgage company know this but they haven't changed it to a buy to let mortgage as yet. we are renting the house that we curren
  17. Hi I've been working hard for the past year trying to set myself up in business as a sole trader, and finally I think I might have got my foot in the door with a very important client that could secure me maybe even a minimum liveable income for potentially life. I have some questions. From the perspective of the benefits I currently am in receipt of, ie. working tax credits and housing benefit, can I take some of the money from what I'm paid and put it back into my company? What do I keep aside for the tax thieves, 20%? Or should I save 30% to cover myself? Is there any w
  18. How does this work? I'm actually quite late for this so they might no backdate it, anyway they failed to send the form out again last year! Every years I have to contact them to send one out but I have been so busy. Can I assume that I don't need to defer then if they don't send the form out and just ignore it, and move somewhere else? ie. where they can't trace me
  19. I got a letter from the DWP a month or so back asking me for £201 they say I owe them. I replied asking them for what since ive not been unemployed for many years and they say is for some debt from 1995 or something - I might have the exact year wrong here but its from a loooong time ago. I write back and said under the limitation action 1980 Section 5 “an action founded on simple contract shall not be brought after the expiration of six years from the date on which the cause of action accrued.”. They have essentially ignored this and then sent another letter telling me they are wr
  20. Hi all, I have had an arrangement in place for five months now to pay off a Santander credit card, I received a letter last week from their collections department advising me that as I am experiencing financial difficulties and therefore wouldn't be making full payments on my account, I had breached my agreement and therefore a default is to be registered. I wrote to Santander to challenge this, to which their complaints department replied (with one or two slight grammatical errors, so presumably handwritten) saying that I'd received nothing more than a standard letter which is gener
  21. My husband and I not long got back from the settlement checking service as we are due to apply for ILR in person, very soon. Shes sorted it out for us, BUT shes only put ONE each of our most recent payslips in, and im majorly concerned that it wont be enough. The lady claimed that shes does everybodys case in the same way and has never had any problems. but surely one each is nowhere near enough. Help!
  22. Hi all, More to discuss ! Another of my colleague/friend in need's issues relate to Marlin, seem a lovely bunch... re an old EGG Account which defaulted in Aug 2005. Not yet Stat barred however as they continued to make payments through the CCCS until early / mid 2009 (awaiting confirmation of exact date but still under six years for definite) Question is as this was defaulted by EGG in 2005 how can Marlin apply another default in Nov 2011? Surely they cannot do this as it just continually resets the 6 year period? It seems that Marlin didn't take the accoun
  23. Hi I have been going through CAG on no insurance on a car even though its taxed and found that I have no choice but to pay the fine. The problem I have is the summons was issued whilst i was abroad and so I had no idea and therefore did not respond or attend court. I have now been ordered to pay a fine of £ 300+some fees which I really cannot afford and feel its really excessive. Is it possible to request a Stay of execution of this judgment using N244 form and present my case? I wrote to the court and explained my circumstances and basically they were extremely curt ... jus
