  2. Hi there! I would like to ask for some advice. I found a similar case (same place, same issue) to mine in this forum and would like to know what was the outcome. Or I'm looking for some solution from someone more clever than me. I parked my car in the St Stephens car park in Trowbridge end of May. I purchased my free three hours ticket (still have the ticket) and put on the dashboard in a visible place. Shutting the door moved the ticket further down and fell under the windscreen wiper (not fully visible, but definitely there). I had an hour meeting at Nan
  3. Hello, I am starting a new thread here after discovering some things on my credit record. The story is: In 2013 whilst I was a Vodafone UK mobile phone customer, a Vodafone phone agent advised me that if I purchased a call package which gave a discount to Intl calls made outwith the UK, this package would cover Russia, which was the country I was going to make calls from. When I returned from that trip in October 2013, I found a bill of £122, increased to £203.70 by Dec 2013. I even offered to pay some portion of the £122 in instalments and paid ~£15 per month as a goodwill gesture.
  4. Hi, I have worked with my current employer for over 22 years and during this time have been allowed to use the car park. However, we are getting busy and they want to take the place away from me and reallocate it to someone else. They are trying to provide work spaces based on how many employees are in each department irrespective if the person has been there over 20 years or recently joined. I would appreciate any guidance from the wiser members of this forum. Thanks in advance
  5. Hi This really is a hypothetical question, Whilst not trying to outrage the EV owners amongst us, lets say I go to a service station in my diesel car and park in a Tesla EV charging place (Other EV chargers are available) could I get a ticket? I would assume Tesla have come to an agreement with the car park owners to put their equipment on the site, but I would expect it's unlikely that the car park operator would update their signs to say no parking in the Tesla spots without a Tesla etc. I know blue badge / disabled places don't actually have any standing, but they do tend to cov

  7. Hi, I don't know if I'm posting this in the right place but I need help. My daughters boyfriend has just received an eviction notice, stating the eviction will take pkace a week on Thursday. I'm currently sketchy on the details but it's all due to problems with housing benefits etc. Hes had a nightmare of a couple f years, he was persuaded to take a 16 hour a week job because he was on DLA and could claim working tax credits, he also kept his housing benefit. He then lost his claim to DLA when he had to change to pip and so lost his working tax credits. He also lost his housi
  8. I'm sure someone on here can give a straight answer as I am trying to help my granddad who was unfortunately hit by scaffolding that had been put up around his block of flats which is Council owned ( Old peoples properties ) He instructed a solicitor to claim for damages caused due to injuries which included broken arm and was told by the solicitor that he would be covered under a no-fee, no win basis. Would this include a contract between both parties as I assume would be, because the solicitor is now refusing to provide a copy of the contract that my granddad has asked to see.
  9. Final resting place of a Yorkshire born WW2 soldier killed in the 'Bridge too far' Battle of Arnhem is finally marked after almost 73 years READ MORE HERE: https://www.gov.uk/government/news/final-resting-place-of-a-yorkshire-born-ww2-soldier-killed-in-the-bridge-too-far-battle-of-arnhem-is-finally-marked-after-almost-73-years
  10. Hi, I have just found and registered onto this site because of the proceeding thread regarding New Generation Parking Management Ltd. I have just received a "parking charge notice" (PCN) for parking in a visitors bay without a visitors permit. The permits are for a 24 hour period with no return in 48 hours. As I was contracted to work in one of the flats over several days for the flat owner this was no use. The flat owner's parking bay was occupied so I checked with the concierge and was told to display a notice in my cars windscreen stating where I was working, flat number/name
  11. Hey, I currently have a DRO in place. The conditions say that I have to notify any creditor that I have a DRO if it's for more than £500. My phone contract is coming to an end, and I want to upgrade my handset. I can either stay with my current provider, or go with another. But my question is - do I need to tell them about my DRO? Either if I stay with my current provider or move to a new one. I can get a phone for about £30 per month, on a 24 month contract. So that means I'd spend £720 over 2 years. Does this count as a £720 loan? I don't want to jeopardise my DRO,
  12. Hi , bit of a general enquiry - not sure where it fits really. Our tree company has been broken into and the chainsaws stolen for the THIRD time ! ( In 6 months ) On the second instance - I brought in my own saw to help out as replacements are not easily found on Day1 of a theft . All the tools were locked in a steel bin and lo and behold after coming back from holiday I discovered we had been burgled again ! - My saw had also gone from the locked bin. Now asking the manager would he be replacing my saw , he said no - as he said they are not covered for perso
  13. A prototype 'pension dashboard' aimed at allowing people to view their retirement savings in one place will be ready by next March, the Government has announced. Details of how the dashboard will look and work in practice are scanty, but it is expected to include a state pension forecast, savings updates from pension firms that have signed up to work on the project so far, and help to find 'lost' pots. On average, a person can have 11 employers over their working life, which means that they could end up with almost a dozen private pensions by the time they retire. At t
  14. Hi, I've recently checked my credit file to find Motor Mile have placed a default on my credit file. They state the type as Pay Day Loan. Account started - 19/07/2011 Default Date - 22/04/2016 Default Balance -£318 This has just appeared out of the blue. Reading the forums here it sounds like they buy old date. My question is are they allowed to place a default on my account? I've never heard of them. They also have my date of birth wrong on the credit report. out by a couple of days. There was never any other default from any payday lender before ap
  15. I broke my ankle at work in 2004, Due to medical negligence was forced to walk on said ankle for 5 years whilst still broken, so then needed multiple operations to address this, which never accomplished anything and will be on painkillers for the rest of my life and am unable to work due to this. Question 1) Can I still claim for this as it has been over 12 years. Question 2) if I was stopping in the isle of wight at a hotel for work, and I sustained the injury after work hours, but was only on the isle of wight to work, can I still claim iib for the injury? Thank you
  16. Hi, I have received a PCN for failing to comply with a No Entry Sign in Morris Place N4 London. It's a very confusing road which splits into a No Entry two thirds of the way down the road. What is particularly confusing is that there is still a 'Turn Left' sign at the end of the road - possibly from before a No Entry rule was introduced? This 'Turn Left' sign can clearly be seen on the photographs on my PCN notice. I've done a bit of googling and can see that this Morris Place No Entry has been the cause of much discussion previously with a number of people appealing and having succe
  17. Can a DCA purchase a debt and then place a default on your credit file, when the original creditor had already placed a default marker prior to selling the debt on?? Can you default twice or more on the same debt but the default recorded by different DCA Agencies? Can account opened in 2002 that defaulted in 2006 be sold to a DCA end of 2014 and in 2015 a new default appears on your credit file with the same account info from 2002 for the 13yr old debt?? This old debt was removed ftom my account 2016 6 yrs after originally defaulted??
  18. I recently received a pcn for using the bus lane on Southampton Row on my motorcycle during operating hours. I have since then informally challenged the contravention, but the pcn was not cancelled. My grounds for appeal are: the alleged contravention did not occur due to the signs and road marking being incorrect. I have attached a pdf with the Enforcement Notice, CCTV images, my route, google street view image and images taken by me a few days later. [ATTACH=CONFIG]60559[/ATTACH] After visiting the site where it happened I found the following: 1-The white informati

My grounds for appeal are: the alleged contravention did not occur due to the signs and road marking being incorrect.

  20. Every daily newspaper is today reporting the dreadful events of yesterday when Tom Crawford's long running battle with his mortgage provider (Bradford & Bingley) came to an end when bailiffs eventually entered Tom & Sue's bungalow and repossessed it in accordance with the court order. Given the high profile and public interest in this case, over 70 police officers were in attendance and the cul de sac where Tom and his wife lived was closed off. Police also hand delivered letters to all his neighbours to advice them of the reason for their presence. http://www.scoop.it/t/lacef
  21. Sorry for having to create a new thread. I know there is already a lot of great information out there already and I have read loads already but I need some fairly specific advice with this one. So the story goes: I took my Dads car to the office the other night. We have use of a car park that belongs to a bank that we sublet an office from. All thats required is a little paper permit that I have had sitting between my dash and windscreen for months now without any issues. The other day my Dad sent me a text saying he had received a letter about a PCN being "overdue". He sent me a c
  22. Firstly a big thank you to anyone whom helps. Going back now some 12 years I used to use a style card which was a store card with a silly high APR that in my youth a had loads of charges on for late payment and I believe also PPI. The card was owned by then RBOS and the card no longer available and hasn't been for some years around 2008 Am I still able to claim for the charges after this time? To whom would I write to requesting details and charges to my account? Many thanks
  23. Hi all, I have had an arrangement in place for five months now to pay off a Santander credit card, I received a letter last week from their collections department advising me that as I am experiencing financial difficulties and therefore wouldn't be making full payments on my account, I had breached my agreement and therefore a default is to be registered. I wrote to Santander to challenge this, to which their complaints department replied (with one or two slight grammatical errors, so presumably handwritten) saying that I'd received nothing more than a standard letter which is gener

  25. My girlfriend works full time and she rents a place on her own. Am I allowed (im on jobseekers) to stay at her place for say 4 days a week? I've been told by other people that I can't do that while on Jobseekers :/ Also she earns £20,000 and I would LOVE to live with her but can I? I don't think I will be able to get tax credits to live on as I think she is over the limit for £20k. Just wondering really as in the future would love to live with her but no way near that stage yet lol!
