  1. Hi We moved in to our rented property at Christmas 2017. We both work from home and took the property based on being able to do just that. My fiancé has a photography studio set up here with regular clients coming to the house. In May we found out that the neighbours had sold a patch of their garden to a builder who is now building a house on the land. The noise is unbearable, we are woken up every morning at 7 and we can't use the garden because of the noise and dust. The neighbours are also having their remaining garden paved by a separate company who also make noise from 7am. To
  2. Hello! This seemed to be the place to put this, though equally it could have gone in transport or benefits. I had a look through and couldn't find any similar threads. I have fibromyalgia and have been trying for the last two years to get a disabled bus pass. It's been complicated by the fact that I have never been in receipt of mobility in PIP, something I decided not to appeal the first time round as I just didn't have the strength. When they re-assessed me, I decided to take it to tribunal and have been waiting, and waiting, and waiting... In the meantime, I have been trying to
  3. I've never used forums before but I've read several bad reports from other people who have bought cars from mylhd and would like to add my own. They are without doubt the most disreputable company I've ever dealt with and my advice is to steer well clear of them. After many months of trying to be reasonable concerning serious problems with the car I bought from them, I've had to take legal action as they refuse to cooperate. There have been empty promises of help but absolutely nothing in reality therefore the I had no choice but to pursue my totally justifi
  4. I bought my current Home Contents Insurance a few months ago from Intelligent Insurance and paid annually, upfront. Last month I lost my laptop and iPad after leaving one of my bags behind in a store. I returned to the store and periodically checked to see whether the items had been handed in. I also called the police to report the loss. The following morning I contacted my insurance company to make a claim. I was asked to explain what had happened and to email over receipts proving ownership of the lost items as well as photos of the boxes the items had come in. I did all this str
  5. Hi everyone , I will try to keep this thread to the point and as short as well. I have a Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge on Contract with Vodafone , I think the contract is about 5 months old and the mobile phone developed a fault that would not allow the phone to charge. Being under warranty: I contacted Samsung who arranged a collection on Thursday 5th of January 2017 using UPS Courier. On the 9th ANOVO (Samsung repair Centre) Horrendous reviews : https://www.yell.com/biz/anovo-uk-ltd-norwich-7746761/ http://www.192.com/atoz/business/norwich-nr6/mobile-phone-repair
  6. Made a subject access request to Santander. One of the acknowledgement letters they sent says this (in bold): If anyone here has made a subject access request to Santander, can you please check the Acknowlegement letters to see if it says the same. If it appears can you include a scanned copy of the letter on this forum. The ICO has told me: Santander acknowledgment letter also says this about call recordings: Santander did send me call recordings, but one of the recordings had a bit missing from the dialog. I've reported it to the ICO. They've just go
  7. Old Tawnyowl here with entrepreneurial adventure number 966. For various reasons,a small heart attack a while ago and i suppose slowly aging i had to change my life around. Could not do what i used to do.It hurts a little but just the way,i miss my life in the construction industry and the people and customers i met.To myself it was fun and looked forward to going to work each day for many hours. I find now after a few hours i have a little pain,probably due to the medication.Hospital and doctors says i am ok. At the time i did not go on the sick but struggled on after coming out of
  8. Hello, I am looking for some help please. I currently have 2 credit cards, one with capital one and one with Barclaycard, owing approx £7,000 on each. Whilst I have not defaulted on any payments and have not reached my limits, the monthly payments have become a struggle and I can't afford the requested minimum amount anymore. I have been looking at contacting them to request a lower payment arrangement and an interest freeze. By all accounts and looking through the library letters and other posts, my chances of them agreeing are pretty much nil, as most
  9. Please excuse my spelling Hi on the 5th of june 2016 i was involved in a accident, which is a possible fault claim however this is still under dispute as i do not believe i am at fault. i called up hastings the next day to register my claim, they deemed my damage repairable and suggested i use a company called albany, the worst mistake i made. They also agreed my car was repairable. I was told i would have my car collected and given a courtesy car within the 24 hour time limit albany had to adhere to, I registered with them at 4pm on 6th of june and was told
  10. Hi this is my friend wantiing to know if anyone could help. will start with i was referred to this seasonal place few weeks ago as the job centre didn't have much info so i went forward for it because the employer would contact me to disscus more about the things i would be doing if i was to take up the offer and i was told by my adviser that my money would not be stopped even if i have been giving a refer letter as this is just for few weeks work experience and was told there would be a jobs going at the end of it. and it was my choice that if i didn't wanna do it then that was cool i wo
  11. I complained about Capital One who were harassing me with phone calls even though I had already told them not to contact me by phone but to write me letters or emails. I logged a 5 week period and they phoned me about 130 times. I complained to the Ombudsman service and after their investigation their representative basically come to the conclusion that Capital One were perfectly within their rights to phone me 130 times in a 5 week period.I was astounded. Capital One without taking any blame offered me £75 as a goodwill gesture,which I turned down. I was claiming £600 compensation for harassm
  12. Thank you in advance for any help, I will try and keep this as quick and factual as possible, my wife received a fine for no car tax, genuine mistake when the new system came into place, paper discs to online we missed the tax on one of our cars, and in the meantime moved house and did not get the reminder, our fault, genuine mistake. We had a fine come through the post so I paid and backdated the tax, set up new reminder for new address etc etc, I appealed against the fine for reasons listed above but lost my appeal, I paid the fine of £80 in 2 instalments 2 days apart on the 15th Nov 20
  13. Hi, I'm not sure if I'm in the right place, or if anyone can help, but it never hurts to ask.... please I emailed a company with expired experience vouchers (by 17 days) explaining my situation, which is: My Mum bought me a sky diving experience and zorbing for 2 for my 'special' birthday (end of April 15). She bought them early April 2015, it's all a little vague as a family friend helped her as she isn't very confident with the internet. On April 12th, I fell very, very ill. I missed my birthday, and more things than I can count since. I've been in a
  14. Hi all, I have been living in the Netherlands for four years and now in the process of sepearating from my husband - i left debt in the UK around 7k (bank overdraft, pay day companies) with the intention of repaying when i started living here, unfortunatley as my husand was out of work for much of the time i lived here i was unable to pay back. Can anyone please advise on the best way to tackle the situation. Thanks in advance.
  15. Hi all, Hoping somebody may be able to shed some light on my question.. I have a judgment against an individual. I have come to realise his name is misspelt on the judgment. Have been advised by the court to make a formal application to correct this using an N244 form 'Notice Application'. My question really is regarding what court fee I am supposed to pay. Ive read the official fee guide but it doesn't make it very clear regarding this type of application. Any thoughts? Ive already emailed the courts to ask but thought somebody may have the answer
  16. Our worst car buying experience ever - horrendous! I cannot underestimate how shocked we were at how Bullitt Cars in North London refused to refund us our money when we rejected a faulty car. We bought a car for over £12,000 and the first time it rained it was clear that the roof was leaking. We returned the car to reject it as is our right under the Sales of Goods Act 1979 as it was not fit for purpose and they refused to refund us our money. They then drove and fixed the car without our permission and attempted to force us to pick the car up by charging us £30 a day storage. The po
  17. Let me begin by saying this - I have never experienced such awful customer service on this level. Or in my life. Quite upsetting really. I upgraded with Vodafone for a 2 year contract and a new handset - an iPhone 6. I then discovered a fault with the screen. Went to the Vodafone store in Trinity Leeds and was told by the manager that it was Apple's problem. I was not even offered a repair by Vodafone as 14 days had passed. Got an appointment with Apple - they agreed, faulty screen and provided me with a refurbished handset. Once I got home that day, I discovered the new handset ha
  18. Me and my wife as regular customers of Curry's Pc World went to this store with the intention of buying the ipad air for our daughter as a birthday present. We arrived around noon the store was really quiet at the time, we went to the ipad section and asked for help, one lady approached us few minutes after and we start our enquiries about product, she was very helpful and explained to us the prices and we were happy to purchase the ipad air. She also asked us if we would be interested in customers care plan as we immediately responded NO, she insisted that
  19. Hi CAG, Not posted for a while but decided I would share my experience of the ATOS Medical I had this morning. Like I'm sure most of you have/will, I did a fair bit of research on what to expect and prepared myself mentally. I got very little sleep last night and was a nervous wreck on the way there as I suffer from severe anxiety in high pressure situations as well as the main issue I was there for which I won't discuss. I can full on understand people who don't normally have anxiety to be anxious as the day of the ATOS medical is one im sure we have all come to dread in the build u
  20. http://diaryofabenefitscrounger.blogspot.co.uk/2015/01/new-job.html The worst part of this is she went from being deemed unfit for work indefinitely to a £60k salaried management position, a nice point for IDS to press i am sure. Is she a sellout or could she do some good from within? (Her own words)
  21. Since having Radiotherapy in 2006/7 I have developed Osteo Necrosis of the Jaw. I had surgery to remove a piece of my jaw bone earlier this year. About 6 weeks ago my Jaw became tight and painful and over a week became intolerable. I contacted facial/oral surgery at my local hospital where I was given an appointment, by the time of the appointment I was basically living on Porridge. At the appointment I told the Doctor that it felt like my jaw was broken, he asked me if I wanted an x-ray to which I replied I would. On examination he told
  22. Hi all I'm two months in arrears with a company based near Doncaster as they haven't completed the job they were supposed to do almost 12 months ago. To cut a long story short, I had a call a few days ago to discuss this from a Mr Morley supposedly of 'Doncaster Debt Collectors'. Called from a mobile number. Has anyone heard of this company or had any dealings with them? I have googled it and there are no results. I suspect he is from the company that I am having problems with rather than a debt collector. I explained the problem and he agreed to remov
  23. Hello All, Over the last few years i have received many letters from different credit agencies chasing me for an old debt owed to Lloyds credit card. All dealt with by filing in the bin. I have never contacted any of them or admitted the debt. Wrong, I know but that was how I decided to do it after reading some of the advice here. Thank you for all your reassurance. However, Lowells have now sent a county court claim form. I have read some of the posts here and again am grateful for the advice but would like to know how to deal with the specifics of this case. I believe the debt
  24. This was family's 1st real holiday after the birth of my son more than 5 years ago. I had promised my son a Disneyland trip when he was 2 years old when he saw his 1st cartoon - yeah u guessed it Mickey Mouse @ clubhouse. And when I finally booked the my 4 day, 3 night trip @ a Disney Hotel, I promised him a funfilled , exciting adventure and for ourselves ( wifey and me) a relaxing time. While the park delivered on its promise, the hotel stay was anything BUT. During these warm summer times, the most basic amenity one would expect in a any hotel room is an A
  25. My daughter claimed ESA due to severe IBS and depression. At the humiliating 10 minute meeting with the ATOS "health care professional" she was given 0 points & told her ESA would stop. She appealed and DWP 'decision makers' supported the ATOS decision. She advised DWP she would continue to tribunal on the grounds that the notes made by the ATOS nurse did not accurately (ie not truthfully) record the meeting & contradicted the assessment by her GP & specialist. I went with my daughter today to magistrates court. We were dreading it - never been in a court in our lives. We were see
