  1. Have just returned from helping a family friend out this evening, she was stranded at road side with puncture, and no spare wheel, car jack, wheel brace or emergency puncture repair kit in the car.The car was the lady's first and she bought on the basis of colour and because it was cute, in other words the car dealer saw her coming and quickly worked out she was not aware of what to look for when buying a car. So, tonight in pouring rain and in the dark at the side of the road I had to give her and her son a lift and abandon her car at roadside.Before, I call the 2nd hand car dealer tomo
  2. Hi there, Does anyone know if it's worth getting house emergency insurance for a flat? On some websites the annual cost isn't really that bad but is it worth paying for that small property? Thanks.
  3. The Queen's most senior aides have summoned her entire household to an emergency meeting this morning. The Lord Chamberlain, the most senior officer of the Royal Household, and Sir Christopher Geidt, Private Secretary, will address staff from royal residences as far afield as Balmoral. Sources said the Lord Chamberlain does call meetings from time to time and that it would be wrong to speculate. Scores of staff arrived at Buckingham Palace this morning.http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2017/05/04/buckingham-palace-summons-entire-royal-household-emergency-meeting/

  6. Hi, I have just received a letter from Agilisys Revenue asking me to contact them to update my address details confirming that I stayed at a bed and breakfast. i went into B&B with my 3 children in 2001, i was on full HB as i was single parent of 3 school children.

  7. Hello team CAG, This is a little long, but please bear with me. I applied to one of the Emergency Services in London, and after passing an assessment was invited to an interview on 18th August. On 30th August I made contact with one of the two panel members who interviewed me as I had received no feedback. I had a lengthy conversation with this person who raised concern about unaccounted gaps in my employment but also stated that I sat a good interview and did not fail it. I was informed if I were to send a complete employment history covering the gaps along with key s

  9. Should letting agencies have an emergency telephone number? This evening I found water pouring through the ceiling at the bottom of my stairs...dashed up to the bathroom to find that the toilet was overflowing and the overflow pipe had become detached(another botched job!) and the over flow was caused by the ball cock thing in the toilet had come lose....me panicking trying to stop the water flow and reattach the overflow pipe! Asked daughter to switch off the water at the stop cock....its behind a panel that needs a screw driver to get to it! Rung the letting agency up... a few min
  10. Hello good people, I'm receiving ESA, the higher element and am also living in a property supplied by my local London Borough costed as Temporary Emergency Housing since my break down in 2012. I've been offered a 'break', a holiday of sorts in Broadstairs on the Kent Coast next month for five days. No cash just a stay outside of town no remuneration. Although I've seen little activity regarding the Council, Brent, checking on my personal occupational life, in Haringey, I don't want to give the paying authority for my HB any excuse to cut me off at the knees! Help and advice
  11. The Able Group - Unable to fix anything & unable to refund... I need to vent a bit about this emergency call out plumbing service. I booked them to investigate hot water flushing back into a cold water storage tank. They sent an obviously unexperienced plumber, who ignored the requested job, & fitted a ball cock instead. The tank flooded again. They sent another plumber who turned down a thermostat, & ignored the original job. The tank flooded again. They billed more than was agreed to my credit card. They refused to refund & I'm having to request money bac

  15. Hello all, A friend of mine was on the phone to me yesterday in tears, his benefit has been sanctioned, and he will not be paid any money until the 15th May. His Pre-Payment electric meter went off yesterday after he exceeded his credit and is now sitting in the dark with no heating. He has been told he cannot apply for a crisis loan as they have now gone and the council do not give money out. He has no food, no electricity, no heating and no credit on his phone now. I live 200 miles away and cannot get to him. The DWP are adamant that he is to get no money and the Citizens Advic
  16. I have had to go into my Gas emergency credit - what happens if I exceed the £5.00 limit? its already on -£3.85 and its got to last me two days - naturally I have turned the boiler off am only having it come on for short intervals tonite.. and I won't be using the hot water! Am just worried about if I exceed my emergency credit limit will it just shut off? am guessing it will...

Many thanks for your replies.
  17. Hello all, I have recently started a new job which I transitioned over from a recruitment firm to a member of staff. Whilst I was working via the recruitment firm I forgot to give in my P46(?) and I only realized this when I looked at my pay slip and saw 810L W1. I did not know what this was but this looked like a different tax code than the one I was given when I was working via the recruitment firm before. I am led to believe that this is a emergency tax code? I gave in my P46 a few days later. I thought this would solve the issue by it did not I was on this same
  18. Just a quick question - Boiler started playing silly beggars today in our rented house. Heating came on but no hot water and strange sounds emanating from the boiler when I tried to run the hot water taps so I rang the estate agents who were closed for the weekend so checked the website and discovered a page that read... If you are a tenant residing in a property managed by xxxxxxx, we have made arrangements for an out of hours Emergency Assistance Service. This number is for Emergencies Only and contractors will only be appointed should it been deemed a necessity. 24 Hour E
  19. Hi - I received a letter today from Chase Solutions, Lancashire. I dont know who they are but their registered office says: Robinson Way Ltd, in Salford, who they sound like a DCA. I have a bill outstanding and whilst I am on benefits I am struggling to pay the account. British Gas had said that I could pay £3.40 per week out of benefits to clear it but when I rang them last week to set it up they said I also had to an extra £17.00+ per week for current and future use.! No way I can I afford to lose that much money every week out as a single parent so I just said OK the
  20. I recently brought a new [to me] car, and as you don’t know a car until you’ve had it for a while I took out an AA membership – which I did via Quidco so it worked out about half price. Anyway the kind people at the AA gave me a ‘free’ 6 months trial for their Home Emergency Response – and whilst I’d never take out such cover under my own choice I thought it was a cleaver way of pushing a product. Which brings me to yesterday we got up in the morning and noticed the toilet was blocked, also when we ran the tap in the basin the toilet filled up and when we filled used the sh
  21. Quick question for those who know the law or tenants rights! Private Tenancy, Assured Short Hold, originally 6 months but now on rolling month by month Should the landlord or landlords agent(s) provide us with a phone number for emergency repairs? They refuse to give one, and at the moment we can only contact the landlord or the agent (have contact details for both) between 9am to 5pm Monday to Friday (excluding public holidays) What would happen if we had a bad leak at 5:01pm on a Friday night, we would be hum-dingered as they say. Thanks in advance David
  22. What is the number for an emergency payment at the job center? Not to be confused with a crisis loan. I haven't had money for 18 days now, my electric is on 27p and have no food or gas. I have used all my crisis loans too. My money should have went in monday but due to illness i sent a jsa28 form instead. That was handed in to my local JC on monday, whats taking it so long! ugh!
  23. I really have had enough of hearing that there is nothing that can be done when my friend needs medical treatment at the out of hours or A&E but has no way of getting there...she is on benefits and public transport to the hospital where the out of hours clinic is stops at 6pm meaning there is no way to get there easily or really at all without money. Doctors say she should come in immediately but back off as soon as she says she has no transport and then she gets a lot worse waiting for the following morning when she can get her one and only friend with a car (when on benefits most pe
  24. When is an Emergency, how should the wording apply to an event; - There is a question. : - Last Sunday I had a radiator valve leak in the hall way, I rang Swinton emergency number to be told that a plumber will ring in the next 2 hours to inform me the time he will arrive, no call, so I rang Swinton again to be told he should not have said that and that the response can be within 24 hours (Uh)( Emergency). She will contact plumber and ring back and have I isolated the leak, I said that I have turned off the valves but the radiator is at a low point and I am unable to drain the syste
