  8. Apologies if this is in the wrong section but it was the only one close to the problem I have. My 94 year old Mother in Law is going in to a care home this week, she suffers badly with Dementia. As well as taking all her pension, I have been told by Social Services that I need to make "Top Up" payment of anywhere between £30 and £70 a week. We haven't asked for any upgrade to Mum's accommodation, she will have one of the basic bedrooms within the care home. Can anyone offer any advice or help please?
  9. Hi There I have 3 iphones that I purchased from Perfect Homes and they are all over 12 months into an agreement that is for 24 months. I have recently lost a lot of income per week due to the benefits change as I am on ESA Support and PIP. Question is if I am unable to pay can they repossess the phones or block them, and how would I go on about getting them on a smaller weekly/Monthly payment? I,m not saying I don't want to pay but we can only pay what we can afford. The amount due per week is £52.00 Thanks in advance

So i have 2 problems with perfect homes that i would like some advice about 1) i have named my partner on my account and put a password on my account that only me and my partner know, i have done this due to my mental health at times i a
  12. Hello there... Need a bit of guidance regarding my father. He had some things Perfect Homes in Wolverhampton. Account lovely and smooth. They along with other people allowed him to carry on hence him getting into debt. Now my father is slow. He went to school for children with certain needs. My father is easily coaxed, frightened and easily manipulated into things. I have to keep bailing him out. That is if I find out what he has been up too. He is a lovely man regardless... My father had that many debts I didn't know about - so one firm told him to go

  14. Do PH change the agreement number when they re write out a 2nd agreement. I'm asking this as my original agreement had all the insurance etc on and when I had this all taken off and they gave me a different agreement copy. now when I pay weekly and receive my receipt I can't tell what agreement is for what as the numbers on receipt are different to that of my original agreement which means I can't work out whats what and when an item finishes by own reckoning.
  15. My elderly mother moved into a care home around 7 months ago. Before she moved into the care home she was receiving high rate mobility DLA, because the care home was local authority funded her DLA entitlement was stopped. I received a letter from the DWP today and one of the paragraphs stated that there is a possibility of having her DLA re-instated, I have attached a scan of this paragraph. Has there been a recent change for this DLA entitlement for persons in residential homes?

  18. Hi folks, today I had a visit from Temple Finance who I now know are Perfect Homes. I will try and keeps this short but informative; I lost my job a few months ago and we were in arrears with Perfect Homes, they harrassed me for weeks even after I spoke to them saying I can make a payment of X amount on X day they flat out refused the payment and continued to add charges.
