  1. Hi, I'm new on here and could do with some help, please. 12 weeks ago my friend ordered some parts for a roof extension he was making. He was verbally promised that the parts would be with him within the week. He paid a 20% deposit at this point. 9 weeks later the parts arrived and he was happy with them. 2 weeks ago my friend received a voice message from the company threatening court action if he didn't pay up. He then wrote to them (recorded delivery) to request an invoice as he planned to pay. This weekend they eventually sent the invoice for the amount plus £185 C
  2. My employer offers employees a payment if someone applies to work for the company on their recommendation, and the person they referred to the company stays with the company for a qualifying period. A colleague referred two people, and with each of those referrals she was told that the person applying hadn't put her details on their application form, which is a requirement to claim the reward. She knows as a fact that that's incorrect, because she witnessed the second referred person putting her details on their application form. I recently referred a friend, who accepted a position
  3. I have an old council tax debt, Rossendales are sending bailiffs to my friends address (I used this address several months ago to get my bank card delivered to as I was of NFA at the time). My friend (whom I don't see that often) handed me a load of letters and told me that bailiffs are regularly knocking at her door demanding full payment, she is worried they'll come in and take all her stuff (which surely can't be legal?). The letters they've sent me are rather confusing, they claim I owe two debts to a local council, one for approx 120 and another for approx 240,
  4. This is a picture of something growing which has sprung up in a pot we planted an olive tree in and we didn't plant it. It grows at a grand rate of knots and what you see has grown in about 2-3 weeks. Anyone know what it is and what I ought to do with it? Will it flower? spread like knot-weed? eat someone? What? Thanks
  5. Hi, I am writing this on behalf of a disabled friend, who has received a Parking Charge Notice through the post from Civil Enforcement, mid last week, around the 26th of Feb. Some info: Date of infringement: 15th Feb 2018 Issue Date 22nd Feb 2018 Date Received 26th or 27th Feb 2018 No photo evidence mentioned, but possibly auto cameras. Cannot see any Section 4 mention on the letter. Just says Maximum Parking Allowance Exceeded. Not appealed yet, we will, and I will detail in a moment what we are thinking to say. Parking Company is Civil Enforcement Spinning Gate,
  6. Good Morning all, I was wondering if someone could offer me some advice with an issue I have with a former friend. Back in 2012 my friend (who is extremely wealthy) gave me 2k to help me out with some serious issues I was having with debt collectors, he wanted to be more than friends shall we say and to this end he gave me another 2k early 2013 and another 2k late 2013 by way of bank deposits. I understood at the time that these were gifts and no verbal or written contract was drawn up. Once he realised that I was not that way inclined / spurned his advances, he started to get
  7. Earlier in January a work colleague of mine who took my vehicle out for a lunch break got me into a bit of a trouble as I found out he had gone to park illegally in a private residence in the city of Edinburgh. The letter from the parking Company, a parking charge notice stated emphatically 'to keeper', they wanted to know the driver and I guess at this point I should have hesitated a bit, I wrote to the parking Company giving them the name of my colleague and asked them to address him with any further issues, I did sign the letter to that effect. I was even more shocked that DVLA could e
  8. Hi all, I have a lovely friend who made a naive mistake two weeks ago - she received a phone call from a 'very believable' fraudster who asked her for some info about her bank card to 'pass security', etc. Ultimately, on the Monday she lost £350. Even though she contacted her bank on the Monday, they are refusing to reimburse her. Please can I ask if she has any avenue to go down on this? Thank you.
  9. hi I am sorry if this is the wrong forum. My Daughter was in a "relationship" with someone and took out a bank loan for this person for £4000. The person has not paid any of the installments and now broken up the relationship. My Daughter has Mental health issues and has been hospitalised 4 times during this relationship and was very vulnerable. I am worried that she is now having to pay this loan back herself ( I know she is responsible to make the payments and she has been doing so) but I would like to know if she is able to do anything to get this money back or make th
  10. Hi everyone. Im new here and need helpful factual advice for my situation if anyone can help please. The situation is this: In October 2016 a friend of mine needed help in buying a van for his business. We are good friends so I didn't hesitate to try to help out. I lent him the money to buy the van £2500 and at the time my brother said we should draw up a contract and he would sign as a witness. I was a bit embarrassed but my friend was good about it so we downloaded a contract online that said secured the loan on the van and if he was to fail to pay then I could repo
  11. Hi All A good friend of mine, charity worker and child who are school friends of my son has got a bit of a problem. A couple of weeks ago my friend and her family were on the way home when they were hit up the backside of the car buy a driver who was accelerating. The car my friends family were in was stationary. They were shunted forward about a foot the tail gate bumper and tow bar are damaged. Repairs are going to cost more than the car is worth but the car is driveable. The car is needed for hubbies work, he was the innocent driver, and to do fundraising for the charities they
  12. Hi this is to do with Parking Eye On November 26, 2016 someone I know and his work mates attended their Christmas Party and parked in Pride Park Retail Park, Derby. He arrived at 18.36 and left at 22.18 according to the notice him and other work mates have got through the post. The letter shows his reg number, It does state Schedule 4 on the letter, they have all informed their boss about this as I am not sure he knew it was private land , are Parking Eye a legal parking company, I have read so many different stories about them so not sure if they have any rights? TIA
  13. Hi all. Very briefly, my friend worked for an employer last year who paid him by bank transfer and never gave him a pay slip. My friend resigned at Christmas and since then has sent letters to the employer asking for payment for 2 days worked, 2 days bank holiday pay and 2 days holiday pay. He has since asked me to help him make a claim against his ex-employer. Evidence-wise, we have this: Original advert in local paper Bank Statements showing 7 bank transfers made to my friend's bank account starting on 11.9.2015 and ending 18.12.2015 totalling £4718 Copies of letter and em
  14. Is a McKenzie friend allowed to assist for a motoring summary offence in a magistrate court? I need to write a letter to court to be allowed a McKenzie friend and need help in writing one, any template please?
  15. I definitely will. Thank you, I just wanted to know if there was anything that I'm missing or not doing correctly. For example, what would happen if the court finds that my friend has totalled up the total owed slightly incorrectly, maybe out by £50 or so? Do they then act upon this, etc?

  17. Hi I was wondering whether anyone would be able to give me some advice. A couple of years ago I allowed a friend to order a PS3 from my catalogue and they received this without any problems. However she then started struggling to pay and I gave her leeway. A few occasions since I tried to get the money owed but it was one excuse after another and me being quite soft I let her off and tried to give her time. Once she asked if I could pass her onto my catalogue and she could sort a payment plan out with them. However after speaking to my catalogue they said the account
  18. Hello 1st post and I hope I'm posting in correct forum. if not could Mods please move post. The wife of a friend of mine has walked out a couple of weeks ago.

  19. Hi All, new here but been a reader for years. This is complicated and im out of my depth. A couple of years ago my long time friend had problems with business and life, (approx 4 to 6 years ago.) His business went into liquidation and his marriage broke up all at the same time. He came to stay at my home for about 8 months while he sorted himself out emotionally having no where to go. When his business failed he had a personal guarantee for the overdraft on his business. ( this was a gray area for him because at the time he stated he wasnt sure if he did or not) more one this
  20. A friend of mine has worked for his employer for over 20 years and is currently in the top tier of the pay structure for his job. For the last 18 months he has worked a four day week on arrangement with his employer due to a combination of his nearing his retirement age and ill health. He recently took five months off sick and was paid 90% of his wage thanks to his employer's sick pay scheme. After a few weeks back his employer asked him to a meeting where they told him that they had reviewed his pay and want to reduce his current pay per hour and offer him a new contract for less money and
  21. She says they all have to sign something to stop them saying how much they have won. She got a new kitchen a few months ago so maybe she got a few bob.
  22. Hi, I was directed to your site by word of mouth, and I'm hoping you can help me. My good friend has been on benefits for years, as a life-style choice rather than need. He has a university degree and years of work experience, but after losing his job 3 years ago he made a conscious decision that life was more enjoyable to sit on the internet and judge other people rather than take a job that he considered "beneath him". I've been trying to convince him the error of his ways, but he keeps laughing at me saying that even with the hoops he has to jump through each week with the Job Centre i
  23. Morning A friend of mine is having a multitude of issues with her local council mainly due to not disclosing changes of circumstances leading to overpayments of housing benefit and council tax benefit. This is just for the council tax. In the first instance, her local council did a recalculation of benefits after I got involved but for the years 2013-14 they have presented a bill for nearly £500. After some communication with them, they have stated that they will not be able to agree a payment arrangement until a liability order is in place. In this area, a LO adds anothe
