  1. Hi, Me & my brother are swapping cars, both cars are the same year & relatively the same value. We are simply swapping as his car is an estate and better for my large dog and my car better for him as his daughter (my niece) can only drive automatics and mine happens to be an auto. I'm just confirming the taxation side of things. I pay DD monthly on my car (so kind of runs from month to month) whereas my brother has paid for the full year upfront on his car. His car tax is paid up till May 2019 I'm planning on doing the transfer of ownership/sale online via DVLA website
  2. As most here will know, I registered with UJ ages ago but found it utter rubbish so stopped using it. They can't mandate you to use any specific job-search site and there are far better ones I use. Got this email today from our wonderful friends at DWP..

  3. Before I narrate the incident I'd like to declare that I have realized my mistake and I'm really ashamed of whatever I have done. So please provide provide honest and truthful information. I was scheduled to have an interview for a job. I was running late and was wearing my brother's trousers as this is my first job interview (I do not have formal clothes). as soon as I entered the rail station I checked my pockets and couldn't find my oyster and thought I had left my oyster card at home. However, my brother's oyster was in the trouser and just so that I make it on time
  4. Hi all, My brother has bought a used fold away wheelchair made by Careco, from a lady who bought it in Feb this year for her mother but she has since been put in a nursing home and could not use the chair anyway as she could not control it. My brother has emailed the company to enquire about transfer of the 12 month warranty and has been told that this is not transferable so he is not covered unless he bought it new from them. There was an additional insurance purchased by the buyer for 2 years at the cost of £209. He has enquired about transfer of this but been tol
  5. Basically me and my brother have been renting together a few years, made financial sense and we get on well. It is through an agent. He has since had a child(hes not with the mother but they get on) and he has been on the housing association list for a while as he wants to be able to have his son staying over etc. He's over every weekend anyway but stays at my dads. Last week he was accepted for a 2 bedroom flat with the housing association and is going to accept it so will wish to leave shortly. This leaves me in a tricky situation as I would like to stay here, it is his name on the te
  6. I bought a Brother printer in June 2014 which has been used to print fewer than 200 documents, most of which were little more than single sheet text files. I last printed a text document about four days ago. The printer runs a self test and cleaning procedure once per week and it did this yesterday. Today, it won't switch on. I checked the fuse and used a meter to make sure that there is power being delivered by the cable. I found a procedure to supposedly fix this by unplugging it and reconnecting power with the power button pressed but after three attempts, this has
  7. My brother is a colossal idiot who ran off from a taxi without paying fare, has since not bothered to pay the fine, and it has rocketed up to £1000 + over the months he's been ignoring it. He doesn't live at home with myself and my mother any more, and hasn't since last year. However, Collectica don't seem to care despite being told this on more than on occasion. This morning I heard a car engine idling outside at about 6:30/7.00. No knock, but when I went downstairs later there was a 'Notice of Removal' through the door (with no time on it, the time/date space has
  8. Some of you are aware i have moved to Northern Ireland and i am on ESA due to my disability. Rather than closing down my BT account in England i let my brother use it in my Name (Same Address) until i receive the keys to my new place over here in Ireland. I have just phoned him on the land line and the line is dead. After contacting BT it seems he has not paid the bill since May. To say i am angry is an understatement, i even got him a payment card. To remove the restriction and protect my credit rating from a default, though i have ended up with three late payment markers.
  9. Evening All,* Just wondered if anyone has any comments on an issue were having with my 17 year old brothers car insurance..* was involved in accident Monday after college. Not sure who is at fault yet but his little Punto is a write off.. He has a box/tracker on car so wasn't speeding but the other car was. He rang insurance up Tuesday morning to inform them and he was told he couldn't have a courtesy car as car was a write off - fair enough.. They went through all his details and he told them he had changed his apprenticeship / job last month.. That was th
  10. Hi, I’m giraffes and you may remember me from a post I made back in 2011, when my GPs wrongly took me off their patient list. I got nowhere, but spent over £600 in disbursements. Despite that, here I go again… This time my problem is similar to that of davey1309 (28th July 2014) whose brother hijacked his inheritance. My mother became mentally incapable due to dementia about 1998. My eldest brother (“EB”) obtained power of attorney to conduct Mam’s affairs. I have another older brother, “OB”. Mum died in January 2014, leaving no will. EB assumed responsibility for making her

  12. I'd really appreciate any help I can get about this. I have been out of the UK for over 12 years. I after graduating and I left some debts... bad and irresponsible...but it is what it is. I have recently returned and set up a UK bank account and opened a secured credit card...with an aim of rebuilding some credit history.

  14. ...in february. We filled out his form a couple of months ago. What is the procedure please? He has kinda accepted that he will be put on JSA. But what is the timescale of things happening. And what happens IF & WHEN he finds a job & they sack him because he isn't mentally capable of holding down a job at the moment? Will he find himself with no benefits or can he go back on JSA straight away?
  15. My first post so hello there people! I need some help as i am about to suffer from depression! I need information regarding people living with you and wanting to go bankrupt. Long story so bare with me. Me and my partner moved in with the inlaw so we can save up, get married and move out with the intention of buying our first home. The first year has gone so fast we dont even know where our money has gone. The second year (January 6th 2012) my brother in-law landed on the door step with his marriage ending. He loves to drink! He goes out every Sunday now and get plastered and my
  16. My brother sent a letter to Lloyds asking for his PPI back. He did the spready for Compound int and the claim came to just under £40k He was away working when an offer letter came offering him £22k and they put the money in his account without him accepting. He got home yesterday and opened his post and was elated BUT they calculated the interest at 8% and he had calculated it at 24.9% which is what they had charged him. Should he pursue for the rest?
