  1. Just out of curiosity. Since initial letter/email contact from a agency (this goes for anyone and no idea if in right bit of forum so please move if need be) What's the record time that you've seen off the agency? Think I broke my record today lol i.e. 4 hours
  2. I am dealing with my late sister's affairs at her request and no will was made. The estate is very nominal and she left her affairs small and tidy to sort out - however, unfortunately, time was against us when trying to get a few things in place. My sister had an account called One Bill whereby she paid a monthly amount over to STB who then paid nominated bills on her behalf. (Your possibly wondering why in this day and age but that was her choice) She had a lot to deal with medically. She also had a current account whereby she had a 'Top up' type credit card which she had to load before she spent on it. Now, on applying to get a bank statement showing the balance on the date of death STB say they have to send out a form for completion which then has to be signed and stamped by a solicitor (for authenticity) obviously, they will have had an original death certificate aswell. I have provided Passport/ driving license and utility bill as proof of id for both my sister and myself and it was I who reported the death. If Barclays Bank do not require a solicitor or additional forms or even sight of the death certificate, just the 'reg number' from top left corner of document, why would STB need all this additional evidence? They are causing delays unnecessarily and we need to access other services with the bank statement. It's not like I am asking for the funds because there's hardly anything in the accounts. Is there anything I can do to speed up the process or complain and sit on my hands?
  3. We are looking to take out a bank loan secured against our property, we have been advised by the bank that we need to obtain 'independent legal advice for secured lending against a property for debt consolidation'. I've just spoken to a solicitor who basically said that the purpose of this is just to take the responsibility away from the bank, and that that it's largely for their benefit. Is this the case, should we get it anyway?
  4. Went to tax OH's car on line on Friday only to find the MOT ran out the week before. Oops! Booked it in for MOT same day (31st October) but it failed on a couple of minor points which were to be put right today. Turned out one of the minor points wasn't so minor and we're currently trying to source some bits. All in hand but could take a few days. Meanwhile car is neither taxed nor SORN, but hopefully will be sorted in the next few days. Question is should it be SORN in the meantime or is there any leeway?
