  1. Long winded explanation. Our mortgage of 25 years comes to an end towards the end of this year, when we will have to repay approx £100k 2 years ago our life endowment policy was ended by Phoenix Insurance (not originally with them but numerous acquisitions they ended up with it). The reason for ending it - they had had to use money from the pot to service the policy. We complained - they agreed that it had been mis-sold and they refund the difference between a standard life policy (life only) and the money we actually paid into the policy over 23 years with simple in
  2. Hello all, I just wanted to gather some advice regarding this, as I am currently thinking of taking it down the route of small claims court. Around about 2 years ago (23 months to be exact) we had to have a new meter installed at our flat due to the monitor on the then existing one breaking. No worries, that is absolutely fine, crack on. Slowly but surely we started to see a dramatic increase of the price of our bills. From when we were paying on average £40/50ish (one bed flat), started to become £100, sometimes £200 plus. Obviously to any rational human being tha
  3. Hi I started a Ppi claim with Lloyds a few weeks ago there were 9 old loan account from 1992 to 2000 with Ppi. I should have my response in Aug. But this week I have received 2 letters in the same envelope to old address even though Lloyds have new my address due to claim. One is from Lloyds saying they have sold my debt to asset link the other from asset link. I know there's a Lloyds charge on my old house from 2006 (ex wife and kids live there but my sole mortgage) as its on land registry. Any one know why I've been sent letter? I assumed they wou
  4. Hello I have received a letter dated 21/12/18 from Lowell Solicitors regarding a 12 month contract I entered into with BT PLC 30/08/14. I believe the contract was entered into over the phone. As far as I remember I made regular payments and gave 30 days notice over that I did not want to roll on to a month to month contract as stipulated by them over the phone towards the end of the contract. I was a student in university at the time. The debt stated as owed to Lowell is for £288.31 due to me not making agreed payments to BT PLC and was purchased in 15/09/17. I queried t

  6. Does anyone have experience of challenging the 20% discount repayment for Right to Buy terms with a local council in the final six months of the five year no move rule. There is a proviso written in the contract that says in exceptional circumstances they will waive this. Would anyone know what these exceptional circumstances might be, or if there has been a successful challenge. I have been told it would be too costly to ask and I would be unsuccessful if I engaged a solicitor to do this hence my post to clarify this would be the case. Thanks in advance.
  7. Hi i have been following this site for years and know you have given some great help and advice. So here I am asking for help for my daughter. Background is she over the last 2 years she has earned around £1300 a month and in this time she has managed to get herself in a right mess. She started with catalogues from Fashion world, Littlewoods, very and studio who have all been increasing her limit until they reached around £1500 to £2000 then came along credit cards Barclaycard, marbles and capital one with about £500 limit on each then a 118118 l
  8. Hi, I am posting this as I require some urgent advice regarding a minor and an agreement. I am 17 years old and I got onto an online car auction and won. The vehicle is for £7,900 + VAT + 20% commission + vat, therefore the total plaice is around £11,300. However I don’t have the money to buy the car and I did not think that I will win the auction. I contacted the auctioneer about this and they said that in there terms and condition (which I agreed to over email) they clearly state the following: 1) if a buyer wants to cancel they must pay the 20% commission+ vat. Which works out at £1580+ Vat
  9. Hi all, I'm hoping someone can please advise as to whether my logic is correct. Essentially I took out a Northern rock together mortgage over 10 years ago just before the recession, this included an unsecured loan of £30k. Shortly after I was out of work for a year and built up mortgage arrears on both the secured element and unsecured element of the loan. Despite 5 attempts of NRAM trying to repossess I managed to fight them off and eventually paid of the secured mortgage arrears however because I was prioritising the secured payments the unsecured loan arrears were not being paid
  10. Hello Guys, I'm new here and any help would be greatly appreciated. Over the past 2 years i have received around 35 parking tickets from UKPC, the majority of which have been issued in my work place office car park. So far i have not replied and ignored any correspondence from UKPC and their debt collection agency. Previously they have been sending all 'debt' letters separately but in July 2018 the debt collection agency have issued me with a letter accumulating the full amount (£5000+) and stating 35 tickets have been issued and that if i don't reply by 08/08/18 they will info
  11. Hi All Ok, today I received a letter from the csa for arrears dating back 18 years from 1999-2000 for a sum of £472. My daughter is now 28 years old and earns more money than me. I can't remember details 18 years ago. The only thing I can imagine is I went through a period of unemployment, but as far as I can remember I paid my csa payments. How in hell can it be after 18 years they come chasing after an 18 year old debt that there is no way I can verify, don't think I own anything 18 years old. I could really do with some advice on this, I certainly don't want to be coughing u
  12. Just bought a new washing machine from Appliances Direct. Advert said 10 yr parts warranty which is correct, but you must use their repairer-----£199 per call out charge !!!! This is of course avoidable if you pay a £4 / month insurance fee by DD. They also offer free washing tabs for 6 months---but try getting them. Anything that sounds too good to be true undoubtedly is.
  13. I received a letter from Northampton County Court over an alleged bus lane infringement in which the amount was £195 made payable to Harrow Council, the date of the alleged offence was 06/03/2015 at 11.28. I had never received any correspondence from Harrow Council about this ticket, I had to do a notice to owner to send it back to it's original PNC. Now the bus lane in question I know very well and have done for almost twenty years, the end of the bus lane you can enter two lanes , the right hand side to go up towards Harrow on the Hill, or Roxeth Hill, the left hand

  15. Didn't know whether to post here or in a benefits subforum. I recently received a letter from Jacobs chasing me for an alleged housing benefit overpayment of just under £2000 from over 7 years ago. I have responded in writing by disputing the debt and stating that as it is statute barred it is now unenforceable although I understand it may be recovered by the local authority through an attachment of earnings order (I am self-employed though) or deductions from future benefit payments. I had no prior knowledge of the alleged debt, have never acknowledged it, and no court informat
  16. Hi and thanks again for the forum. I purchased a BRAND NEW Tower T17005 Low Fat Health Air Fryer 3.2L Black 3 year guarantee From Hemsworth Hardware on the 19 February 2017. Just recently the unit started to make an horrific grinding sound. I contacted the seller and he said he would speak with the supplier (like he/she is not the supplier). Since then the seller has ignored my emails. Question is - do I pursue this or am I wasting my time given that the unit is over 12 months old ? Thanks in advance.

  18. Hi folks, I know there are a couple of threads on similar topics, but this one is specifically about Scotland where rules may be different. I received a letter from sheriff's court demanding payment for 20+ parking tickets (almost £2500) issued in early 2015. These were for on street parking in Dundee city centre where I was living at the time. I didn't get any ticket on my car at the time, nor any correspondence in the post either at the time or at any stage over the past 3 years. They all occur over a 3 month period (March - May 2015), and I was still resident in Dundee unt
  19. Could someone please advise on the “6-years and it lapses” rule, I want to know if it still is in place, and also if it then has relevance for the following. 5 years ago I acted on advice from the wonderful people on this forum. I had previously retired at 65 after a business collapse, and was facing constant letters/calls from debt collectors regarding some related debts amounting to £36K across 5 business credit cards, 1 personal card, and a small-business loan. As a result of great advice I was able to hold my ground and even go on the attack, and after a year or so 4 of the deb
  20. Hello Everyone, Not really sure how to start this so I'll plod on and hope it makes sense? A DCA has gone to a court case after an account (that has been in dispute) and where multiple dcas have been involved, now after the threats ONE has moved it to court! I've acknowledged service but now I want to help if I can. Seemingly the account has always been in dispute with the CC holder and the CC holder admitted things had gone wrong and would rectify but did nothing to recompense but instructed more dcas until it got to this stage. The defendent sent the dca the fir

  25. It's an odd case. Mostly because I have autism and I struggle to communicate. I am sometimes catatonic for months. In March 2016 I bought a refurbished laptop with 1yr warranty from SKUNKWURX LTD (they use many names, line svx-online, and others). The laptop failed (motherboard burnt) and I returned it for repair under warranty. The laptop failed again and I demanded a full refund. Unfortunately for me, I was using the advice of Citizens Advice and Money Saving Expert, which are quite inadequate, to be honest. (Since then, I've had the luxury to discuss with YOU my Ford
