  1. Hello, A question on behalf of a friend – I hope you can help. UK Power networks want to replace posts and cables (they are not too clear what exactly). I think there are old posts and cable already installed on the property land (private property/land) years ago before the property belonged to the current owner which they want to replace and they want access. Do we need by low let them do it and should we request some compensation/rent for the days there will be workers on our private property? I don’t feel it is safe to let anybody into the property without us being home and keep an eye on them. We have outbuildings, animals, items etc.. .It is 5-6 acres private house /land property. There are also trees, grass etc and if they need to destroy any of these we will not be happy. If we give them permission or if we have to give them permission by low, do you know any letter/sample to send them and tell them that if they destroy anything they have to pay compensation or pay anyway for the days they will be here and somebody has to take days off work to be able to open the gate for them and let them in. The 'supervisor' is coming tomorrow to explain more in detail and I have not got a clue what our rights are. Thanks in advance.

  3. UK mobile networks look set to be forced to make it free to unlock phones at the end of customers' contracts, it was announced in The Budget. Currently, each major network offers different options to consumers who want their phone unlocked, with most charging for the privilege. Unlocking a phone allows customers to switch networks as they please. Following this week’s Budget, the government says that all mobile users should be able to have their handset unlocked at the end of their deal without paying. While it is hoping to get networks to sign up voluntarily, the government has promised to pass laws to force networks to comply if an agreement can’t be reached. http://www.uswitch.com/mobiles/news/2016/03/mobile-networks-set-to-be-forced-to-unlock-phones-for-free/?utm_campaign=insight&utm_content=160321&utm_medium=email&utm_source=uswitch&utm_term=mobiles-content-pod
  4. Hello All, Hoping this is in the correct forum. I am stuck in limbo with Lowell and 3 Networks with a default on a Pay as Go direct debit, which should not have been there. I called into the 3 Networks Store and asked for my direct debit to be cancelled, I also left £40 credit in that account. It was agreed into store that no money would be owed, I unfortunately do not have anything to back this up in writing I went to apply for a Mortgage last year and was told by the broker to check my credit rating, I checked my credit rating and seen 3 years of defaults for Lowell. I called Lowell up last may and they told me this was a 3 networks debt, I explained my case and Lowell told me to pay the £25 and all would be ok, that this debt would be cleared from my credit rating, it would take up to 50 days. I called Experian to see why this was not cleared as a default on my account, they said I would have to talk to 3 Networks as the default came from them. I spoke with 3 Networks, they understood the issue and want a letter from Lowell to say the debt has been cleared and that there has been a miss understanding, Lowell said they dont do that, however a lovely lady in customer service said she would try her best to talk to 3 Networks. Both Parties just need contact but either one will contact each other, is there a way to make them speak to each other and clear my default which should not have been there? This is the only default on my credit profile, will this affect my credit rating going for a Mortgage? Thanks for any help on this
