  1. I'm the executor of a will and the estate includes a property. The relative has died just before the insurance is due to be renewed and I'm having problems finding cover. I'm being told that I can insure it as a second home once probate has been granted but until then I can't. I'm guessing that because I'm not the owner yet I have no insurable interest in their eyes. I can't be alone in this situation. Is it really impossible to insure a property throughout the process of probate?
  2. Long story short - may get longer later: My wife bought a vaping kit from a shop in Chester on the 2nd July this year. £50. Product is here: http://www.innokin.com/vaporizers/cool-fire-iv/ When I first got it, it seemed perfect, worked well, did what it was supposed to do. At the end of August it basically stopped working. Put it on bedside table before going to bed (pressed button 3 times to put on standby), woke up the next day and found it completely dead, nothing seemed to spur it back to life (charging, pressing buttons, checking physical on/off switch on bottom).

  4. Hi all Nearly 6 months ago my Father in Law was diagnosed with terminal cancer. The Palliative Care team at his Hospital immediately requested that the council fit a level access shower in his council flat. 4 months later, his wife had heard nothing so rang the Council up. Was told that the adjudication Panel had rejected the request! The next day his daughter phoned to plead with them to reconsider. They immediately phoned back to say they had granted the application. No reason was given for the refusal or the reconsideration. She was phoned in August to say they would start
  5. My Dad passed away recently. He died without leaving a will. He did not own any property, had no cash or assests. On his death he had a basic bank account which contained a few hundred pounds of Social Services, Direct payment money - ring-fenced to pay for his social care only. I contacted the bank and they were willing to administer and close down the account without the need to apply for a grant of administration. The money in this account has been repaid to social services and the account closed down. There are no assets - only personal possessions. The most valuable item i

  8. Hello, Pretty simple question really. My father died a few weeks ago, I'm his oldest daughter (not even 30 yet, never thought I'd be planning his funeral at this age). We've since discovered he had three credit cards, and has three interest only mortgages, and two repayment mortgages (4 were buy to let properties, bought so mum would have a bit of an income should anything happen to him - all pre-2008 so needless to say selling isn't an option). Dad was quite financially savvy so it's very unlikely he'd have paid PPI - but we'd like to double check to ensure he wasn't paying f
  9. Hi New here so excuse me if I don't quite post fully. Many years ago my mum had a loan from Barclay that became a CCJ. She never paid and it sat dormant until 2007/8 when she tried to get credit and it reared it's head. The debt has been sold on and a originally an agreement to pay 25 and then 50 a month was set up..since then the debt has been sold on a number of times. The final DCA was GPB and an agreement of £50 was carried forward. In October my mum became ill and this debt was on her mind, she considered trying to get a single pay off. When I looked into this I fou
  10. Hi, I have found myself in a bit of a difficult situation. I will try the simple description and hope there is some advice! My 31 year old friend died about a month ago and i was named as the execuator on his will which leaves everything to his wife (who has a 1 year old baby). Most of his assets are straight forward to deal with but he owned two properties which are going to cause some problems! Both properties are on interest only buy-to-let mortgages but him his wife and baby lived in one of the properties and the other is let out to tennants. The property that is lived
  11. Hi Bought an 02 plate Vauxhall Vectra on 7th September. Today it died. 130k on the clock but looked in good condition. (famous last words) The breakdown mechanics said the engine was spinning too fast on cranking suggesting that there was little or no compression. Even though I topped the oil up a couple of weeks ago, today my dipstick wasn't long enough I am going to email the trader soon and see what he has to say. I am suspecting they will try to wash their hands of it. This thread is just so I have a list of any progress I make. I don't want to invoke SoGA as ye
  12. Basically picked up a car saturday afternoon. Used car but I was happy enough with it. £1000. Had a short test drive and it felt good, looked around and on the face of it all very good, no problems, dealer had all the papers and stuff, everything in order. Was an engine light but he told me this was ignition coil which was haggled off the price paid. Paid on debit card and set off out of Birmingham, 20 miles down the m40 lost power and pulled onto the hard shoulder. Car wont start and battery dead etc, turn the key and all the lights went out and clock reset etc. Towed home by RAC, got home
  13. Hi, My ex-partner recently died a few years ago while I was with him he took out a 2nd mortgage loan on his house to clear his debts but I signed too - the loan people said I needed to sign because I lived there. The house was not in both our names - it was his house and the loan was secured on his property. He said it would not affect me, they just needed to know who was living there. We split up nearly five years ago. I don't know where I stand with this. He had not been paying it, his mother says she has found a lot of horrible letters regarding
  14. Hello people I need a bit of advice please a letter was received from Phillips & Cohen on 7th of November at fathers house even though he was no longer married to my mam . My mam passed away in November 2009 and i dealt with bills etc nothing was left and rented flat etc these people are after over 3000 pounds from the estate but nothing exists is it best just to ignore these people or tell them that there was nothing left also i did find there letter distressing as it was received only a day or two to the day mam passed over sounds like these people are heartless
