  2. I'm doing this on behalf of my other half (she's not on here) and if you have to move feel free Now I don't know the exact history of the account but her brother had a credit card (at least I think it was) Lowell have constantly been on the phone to them telephone harrassment bla bla the usual drill their solicitors (the so called solicitors) sent a letter apparently saying they we're going to go for a CCJ (but not sure if that's just a theratogram) the few other problems the person getting harrassed by them does have special needs (which won't be curable obviously)

  4. Got a letter from Northampton Court on behalf of Harrow Council, demanding £195.00 for being in a bus lane on the 16/03/2015 at 11.28. I never received any letter from Harrow Council about this offence, the time indicated 11.28 is strange as the bus lane restrictions are 0700-10.00 and 16.00-19.00hr and this has always been the case since the restrictions were applied. The penalty charge notice gives the correct reg in the photo and you can clearly see the make of my car but vehicle make is stated as unknown. This is very strange, my question is how do I go about rep
  5. My partner bought a vehicle for £2650 from car dealer with no warranty on 7th March 2017. On 25th March 2017 the bottom end crank shaft went and we had to be towed. The garage said the work is minimum £1500 and we've shopped around and nowhere can do it cheaper. The car dealer said that is an extortionate amount for what needs to be done and has agreed to pay half. Leaving us to find £750 to pay for the rest. My partner is about to agree to it as he feels he's had enough stress with it but we're having our first baby this year and really can't afford it. Is there anything we can do? Do we ha
  6. I have been sacked one and a half weeks into a two-week trial period. The employer says that, because I only worked for a short period, he doesn't have to deduct tax and Ni from my wages. I was working a 37-hour week for which my pay (due at the end of March) was £7.50 per hour. My employer confirmed this in an email to me before I started work. I was directly employed (not through an agency) and was not self-employed. My questions is this: Is the employer legally obliged to deduct tax and NI after such a short period and does he have to give me a P45? Also, what can I do if he doesn't
  7. Hi folks, So I am not to experienced dealing with letting agents, their reputation for lack of morals has me avoiding contact if necessary. I have an agent who intends to charge me a relisting fee of 400 pounds if I were to end my contract 2 months early. Yes it is legal in the contract as per their outlined conditions. "If the tenant vacates the premises during the term apart from according to any agreed break clause which is included within the agreement the tenant will remain liable to pay the rent and any other monies payable under this agreement until the term expires; or the pr

  10. It could take Whirlpool more than three-and-a-half years to service and modify all of its fire-risk vented and condenser tumble dryers, new Which? research can reveal. With owners of fire-risk dryers already being told to get in line and wait up to 10 months for their machines to be serviced, it’s emerged that it could take Whirlpool several years to service the almost four million machines it says are still in UK homes. 5.3 million fire-risk dryers were sold to UK consumers between 2004 and 2015, made up of 127 models from Hotpoint, Indesit, Creda, Swan and Proline.

  11. My employer is telling me I need to go to see the doctor (I agree due to stress related migraines). He is also saying I need to show them a note to say I am fit for work, as in his own words (in email), he doesn't feel I am fit to work. 1. Do doctors even issue a fit to work note after a couple of half day absences? 2. If my employer is telling me he thinks I am unfit to work, should I be going to work? (He thinks I should ) 3. Can my employer force me to present a fit to work note from my doctor? Thanks
  12. After my husband's diagnosis of cancer, he lost his job and we were unable to pay the rent. We were, consequently, served with an eviction notice followed by a CCJ for each of us to pay £15 per month. However, my husband died last June. What I want to know is, when I have finished paying my half, am I legally obliged to pay that still owed on my husband's half?
  13. My friend and I were traveling to Crete Rethymon on the 21st of June 2015 with Jet2 from Glasgow airport. We were meant to return with them on the 28th of June 2015 to Glasgow airport. We bought 4 miniature bottles of vodka at duty free. When we were on our flight, my friend opened one of the miniature, one of the cabin crew said that we were not allowed to consume it on the flight. We apologised and handed the miniatures to the cabin crew to be locked away until we departed our flight. We were then asked if we would like drinks from the trolly, we ordered food and some alcoholic beverage
  14. Hi All, Just today it has been confirmed to me that my beloved male dog has a large cancer within the muscle wall near his hind left leg. We found the lump last week and immediately took him to be checked - the lump is huge and very hard. Prior to this he had been his normal bright self, not off his food, not losing weight so nothing to suggest he was poorly. We have been told he can have surgery to remove it however they would have to also take a substantial amount away from around the tumour and then it would be major reconstructive surgery to close the wound. There is about
  15. Hi Guys. I'd be grateful for some advise please. I split with my ex partner and the house was sold. Prior to completion I was advised by my solicitor that there was a Charging Order on the house for my ex-partners HFC credit card bill for £1330, and that this money must be deducted from the equity. I didn'teven know that my 'x' had the credit card and suspect that it dates back prior to our relationship or almost definitely prior to us buying the house seven years ago. I also suspect that he never bothered even going to court to try and sort out the problem (whenever the court case was?)
  16. I know i am, it's not just because it's about people claiming benefits, but all the inaccuracies contained within these programs, the one on channel 5 about benefit cheats, is the latest, a Liverpool lad , claiming what was described as sickness benefits ,for PTSD told the undercover reporter that he was getting a total of £1,500 per month ,inc DLA , I find that very hard to believe, which makes me think of those IDS and his sanctions work leaflets that were based on lies , Also are those that are cheating the system really that dumb that they will boast to someone they hardly know abou
  17. I read this on the site linked at the bottom. "I thought I would put this on from today’s paper, for information, as I have not heard about it neither, and even after reading it I still don’t know how we will be able to renew our road tax. Paper tax discs will vanish from cars in less than six weeks-but half of drivers are unaware. The discs will be abolished from October 1st and replaced by electronic records. Police cameras will check number plates to catch owners who have not paid. However, a survey found that 50% of drivers are still in the dark about when
  18. I have found a place I really like and it's 151,000 but it's an shared ownership so I only want to have 40% of the place at the moment. So that's 60,400.

  20. Tesco fined over 'half-price' strawberries claim Tesco has been fined £300,000 after admitting it misled customers over whether strawberries on sale were genuinely "half price". Trading standards officers said the £1.99 strawberries on sale in Sheldon, Birmingham, in 2011 had not been for sale at £3.99 long enough. The store charged the same amounts at its other stores in England and Wales. Tesco admitted four counts of unfair commercial practice at Birmingham Crown Court. Judge Michael Chambers said the case was "shocking by its

  22. 69/12 9 August 2012 The OFT has imposed a £544,505 financial penalty on the online payday lender MCO Capital Limited (MCO) for breaching the Money Laundering Regulations 2007, including its failure to adequately verify the identities of loan applicants. The OFT has also revoked MCO's consumer credit licence. It is thought that MCO's failures led to it being targeted by fraudsters who used the personal details of over 7,000 individuals to successfully apply for loans amounting to millions of pounds. The Money Laundering Regulations 2007 require lenders to conduct appropriate identity ch

  24. More than one in two people would switch to the "Bank of Dave" – the enterprise set up by David Fishwick, a Burnley businessman, to sideline the big lenders. Mr Fishwick wanted to offer an alternative to Britain's scandal-hit big banks but faced problems getting a banking licence from the regulator. He promised customers 5pc interest on their savings, using the deposits to lend to local people struggling to secure loans from the established lenders. But in the absence of a banking licence he was forced to lend his own money. According to a survey by MyVoucherCodes.co.uk, 52pc of people w
