  1. Wow so happy to have found you CAG. Fingers crossed I can beat this. I am devastated, treated myself and a friend to a theatre show tickets were about £7 each. We are both pretty skint and I have now had a charge for £60-£100 quid!!! Theatre Delicatessen (voluntary run theatre) had just moved to the address above when I went to see the show which was on the 24th October 2017. Yesterday 6th Dec 2017 I received a letter asking me to pay £100, or £60 if I pay within 14 days of the date of the letter 29/11/17. (Why have they taken so long to respond but yet I am pressu
  2. Just looking for some advice, recently I asked my work coach at my Job Centre if the worst comes and I do face a sanction in the future while I am on Universal Credit, will my housing element be affected as well, and he said yes, is this true? I thought housing element won't be affected while on a sanction, or his he wrong? I just hope I don't end up on UC for too long, I am aiming to get into work ASAP.
  3. nhs contracts? Hi all, i am now working in the nhs as part of the theatre department and in doing so signed the usual contract agreeing to working on calls, late shifts and weekends etc, the problem is that some staff are not taking part in this arrangement because of various reasons ( my cats scared of the dark or little johnny wets the bed) sanctioned by the managers and therefore the remaining staff are having to work extra shifts to compensate. My question is, are we all being treated equally and do we have any basis for taking action against the management. Any h
  4. I came to return my brother's car and parked on the suspended bus stop which had been closed due to Gasworks mains replacement. Below is my letter to Newham, I have appeal on 18th Jan 2019 and need some guidance. The PCN ….. was issued while the vehicle was parked on the Bus Stop on Plashet Road. Plashet Road was closed due to Mains Replacement work on Green Street. Stukeley Road had notices stating that it was closed from 28th July to 5th October. The works overran the above schedule and I wasn’t aware of its completion until after I was informed about PCN. My broth
  5. Hi guys, I've requested a copy of a CCA a while back (all recorded delivery). I sent the £1 postal order, and waited the 12+2 working days for a reply. I never received a reply (after it was tracked - delivered), so I then sent the reminder - 30 days to respond (recorded). That was also ignored and I had no reply, so then I sent the 'Account in Dispute - Section 10 Notice' letter, which ended "I reserve the right to report your actions to any such regulatory authorities as I see fit. You have 30 days from receiving this letter to contact me with your intentions to r
  6. Hi, I have been away for a few days when I came back yesterday, I noticed my car was gone. I obviously freaked out and called Police who advised me to call TRACE, I did it and there was no entry on their database about my car. There was no letter, or phone call, email, SMS or anything to let me know that my car was taken by Marston. Not a single notice. For all I knew, my car was stolen. I then called Police back, and they were able to find out that Marstons took my car. I called them immediately and was told that it was due to a PCN issued last year by Ken
  7. Hi there first time posting so please be gentle! I’ve worked for my current company for 10 years now and have a really good non sickness record and have never been in any disciplinary trouble. However on 27th April my employer stated and investigation into me and the team I was leading, after 2 investigation hearings I was suspended on 8th May. The company suspension policy recommends 5 working days suspension however I was suspended a lot longer, finally on the 17 working day The stress got to much for me and contacted HR and asked them for an update, 2 days later I got an invite
  8. im near the back end of my ban and have started driving to work, not ideal but found work and the only way to get there was by car, I thought for the last 5 month of my ban it would go by quick with no problems, however I have had an accident, my fault. so ive had an accident while banned from driving. whats likely to happen ?
  9. Hi, I would be very grateful if I could receive any advice concerning the parking charge notice I've received on Monday. I've filled this up : For PNC's received through the post [ANPR camera capture] please answer the following questions. 1 Date of the infringement 21/05/2018 2 Date on the NTK [this must have been received within 14 days from the 'offence' date] 31/05/2018 3 Date received 4/06/2018 4 Does the NTK mention schedule 4 of The Protections of Freedoms Act 2012? [y/n?] Yes 5 Is there any photograp
  10. Hello, Can someone confirm that a person on IVA or with DRO would not be able to apply for student loan of any kind?To my knowledge it's a loan for a four month beauty course.Thank you.
  11. Hi all, Im just after some advice…. I am currently in a IVA and when it was accepted allowances were made for my car payment to black horse. To cut a long story short, things have changed rapidly and my income has stayed the same, well it’s actually due to go down and my expenditure is going to rise. This means that I can no longer afford the vehicle that the allowance was made for. Im ok with that, My dad is going to gift me an old car to be able to run, and on completing my income and expenditure form, if I get rid of the current PCP vehicle then I can still afford to
  12. This company Park direct uk, issued me a PCN while i didnt have time to think to where to park, so i was feeling dizzy and i parked there, and I gave the reason to them, and I'm legally to do so if im in an emergency, and i sent them a appeal and they refused, and this is a private land, can someone help me out please? I attached all the posts that i received from them and what i appealed to them. Many thanks guys
  13. On the face of it, this case appears to be very worrying. A lot is dependent upon what correspondence you had previously received from your council. BUT... If you sent an income and expenditure breakdown to them BEFORE they engaged bailiffs then you should have been considered for an attachment order. Simply not having sufficient income is no excuse for the council to bulldoze on with bailiffs. As others have alluded to, you should now write to the council and raise the point regarding their hasty decision to use bailiffs as opposed to the more logical option of an attachment.
  14. On Friday 3rd November, while travelling up to Blackpool, around 8pm i was pulled over by Cheshire police, when they did a licence check, they told me that i have been disqualified from driving since June. Something i was completely unaware of. I was subsequently arrested and charged with driving while disqualified and driving without insurance. I was released that evening and had to get a train to Blackpool. Next morning i contacted the DVLA for more information, they told me i had been disqualified through Oxford magistrates court. Being the weekend i

  16. Hi all ... Hope this is the right place to post this. Having lost everything in the recession I then suffered a major breakdown and now have Complex PTSD and fibromalgia amongst other illnesses which are all getting worse. After two years of being homeless myself and my partner were given a council flat. Our neighbours are the local drug dealers and generally bad things happen daily. I now won't go out of the flat at all. I have a pension which I could cash in in 18 months and I wanted to do this and buy a small cheap house. I currently get PIP and my partner gets carers al
  17. Hi all, This is a weird weird situation. I recently found to my delight my previous employer had overpaid salary, basically I was only due (and given) a week's notice, of which I have proof (submitted at the start of claim), and I started my claim for JSA IB and HB at THAT point, yet I now find they paid a month's notice. I was posted a payslip which shows the excess AND with it, a P45 which also erroneously shows my leaving date as if I were given a month's notice!! So, a strange one, I think you'll agree. I have outright proof - a letter from my employer, signed b
  18. Thank you for taking the time to read my problem. For the last two and a half years ive been selling virtual items on ebay whilst claiming DWP. A week ago I was asked to attend an interview at my local Job Centre, of which I did and was told by the interviewer that I had been informed on for making money and not declaring it. I told the interviewer I had indeed been doing that and he asked me to bring 3 months bank statements in next week. I went home that same day and printed off 3 months bank statements and as I did so the realisation hit me that I was in a lot of trouble.
  19. Hi all, First time here so please let me know if anything in this post should be changed. Backstory: I was in Bulgaria on business in June/July and had no knowledge of my PCN before leaving (turns out my mate moved my car out of his drive into the parking area for a couple hours where I received this PCN). Upon arriving home I find two letters, one being a final reminder sent mid June by VCS and then a debt collection notice sent by ZZPS in mid July. As I was out of the country and couldn't access my mail, I had no idea any of this was happening in my absence
  20. Hi there, I realize there are a lot of threads regarding cancelling gym memberships to Xercise4Less floating around on these forums, but I am not looking to cancel my membership, rather, I'm trying to find out if there is any point in me challenging a bounced payment. I have been out of the country since today (7th), and received an email dated from the 6th, saying a payment was bounced due to there being insufficient funds in the account. Now I'm being charged a £25 administration fee, which seems absolutely ridiculous. Should I chalk this down as me being stupid or can I c
  21. Hello I live in a cul-de-sac and my house is the last house on the road and I have my own drive at end. Today, I received a PCN code 62 while parked on my own Drive. It states 'Parked with one or more wheels on or over a footpath or any part of a road other than a carriageway'. My car was parked with the back wheels just on the edge of the footpath, something I have been doing since 1988 but for some reason I have received a parking ticket today. The footpath ends at my house, although a neighbour whose garden backs onto my drive has put a small gate in his
  22. About a week ago my sister of 24 years of age and my under aged self arrived in London for holiday visiting our cousin,who is currently a university student. Neither of us has any source of income other than their parents and not having a lot of time to save up for this trip made it very hard for us to get by with the money we were given.Yesterday was our 7th day and we thought it would be a good idea to take some presents for back home but without much money it would be hard to acquire them. We finally decided to steal some but of course it was a STUPID idea.We were taken to the roo
  23. Hello, I am posting here to see if I can get some advice regarding employment and support allowance. My history is that I currently recieve ESA in the support group and have been on this benefit for four years now with 3 reassessments including my first in 2012. Twice I was placed in the support group after a WCA but after my second assessment I was initially told over the phone I would not get any benefit. I asked the DWP on that call to reconsider and about an hour later they called back telling me I was again in the support group. I am now waiting to find out about my next assessment

  25. Last year on 24th August we switched providers and signed a 12 month contract with BT for supply of land line plus broadband. However this morning in my inbox was an email notifying me that there was a price increase of £2.50 and that this would be implemented from 1st April. Can they do this and is it a get out of contract if they impose the extra charge? As below Hello, We wanted to let you know that the price you pay for your broadband and ca
