    • Hi,  I'm new here, and hoping that this is the right place to post this.   I applied for pip and was awarded standard mobility (10 points).  I did an M.R. but got the same result. They acknowledge that I can't leave my house without having someone with me. They accept that I'm not completely housebound as I go out to appointments, which are not a regular occurrence, they also said that they can't award me enhanced because I'm not out most days.  Is this correct?  Surely it shouldn't matter how often I go out? 
    • The Legal Ombudsman has a wider remit than the SRA, and can always refer matters on to the SRA where they find a breach of the SRA's code.   I'd suggest writing to the solicitors, highlighting these issues, asking them to refund the money. If they don't then complain to the LO.
    • Good morning all,   I have an update for you all, shortly after my first hearing i was told i would need to have a rehearing with another company, Obviously i agreed but after the initial grievance hearing the person then asked me to enter into a private conversation, I have received the settlement offer and are disgusted as its not even half of my monthly  salary, I'm not sure what to do at this stage as i dont have the funds to finance a solicitor,so any advice would be appreciated.  
    • Sorry, but what does this mean?   Who are ARC? It would be helpful if you could be a little bit more clear about what happened. I don't understand why you are not simply proceeding against Amazon – because it is clearly their responsibility as it was their driver or courier company
    • I understand that you were involved in a contentious divorce in respect of which there was a bill for court costs – £850. You decided to challenge the costs in court and you lost and an order was made against you. We decided to appeal the order but before the appeal was heard, the solicitors made you a without prejudice offer of a 50-50 split – £425. You agree to this and you signed the document to that effect which you returned to the solicitors. Despite that the solicitors are now trying to impose the original £850 order. Is that the correct order of events? "Without prejudice" is certainly something that doesn't seem to be very well understood, including by solicitors. "Without prejudice" can protect an offer from being disclosed to the court where the offer has been refused so that it is not binding on anyone. However, without prejudice cannot be used to hide everything from the court – including wrongdoings, unethical behaviour et cetera. It seems to me that once you sign the agreement you effectively had a contract. I'd like to know a little bit more about the agreement that you signed but presumably it was intended to bring a halt to any further proceedings. I don't think there is any difficulty about disclosing a contract to the court in the circumstances. It is only the offer which was made without prejudice. Once the agreement was accepted and signed then the document acquired a wholly different character. It was no longer an offer open to be accepted or refused. It was a legally binding contract which imposed obligations upon both sides. In my view the solicitors have acted in a highly unethical way and I would begin by making a complaint to the SRA. I wonder whether the solicitors proposed the 50-50 split to you without consulting with their client and when they then contacted their client and told her what had been agreed, she refused to accept it and on that basis the solicitors recognised that they had made an error but rather than accept their responsibility and footing the £425 out of their own pockets, they preferred to get it from you. Of course this is just speculation but it seems to me to be quite a possible scenario. I'd like to see the agreement post up here please – that my sense is that you should complain to the SRA and you should tell the solicitors that this is what you're doing.

    • Hi,  
      I was in Sainsbury’s today and did scan and shop.
      I arrived in after a busy day at work and immediately got distracted by the clothes.
       
      I put a few things in my trolley and then did a shop.
      I paid and was about to get into my car when the security guard stopped me and asked me to come back in.
       
      I did and they took me upstairs.
      I was mortified and said I forgot to scan the clothes and a conditioner, 5 items.
      I know its unacceptable but I was distracted and Initially hadn’t really planned to use scan and shop.
       
      No excuse.
      I offered to pay for the goods but the manager said it was too late.
      He looked at the CCTV and because I didn’t try to scan the items he was phoning the police.
       
      The cost of the items was about £40.
      I was crying at this point and told them I was a nurse, just coming from work and I could get struck off.
       
      They rang the police anyway and they came and issued me with a community resolution notice, which goes off my record in a year.
      I feel terrible. I have to declare this to my employer and NMC.
       
      They kept me in a room on my own with 4 staff and have banned me from all stores.
      The police said if I didn’t do the community order I would go to court and they would refer me to the PPS.
       
      I’m so stressed,
      can u appeal this or should I just accept it?
       
      Thanks for reading

Hi all, Im new on hear but delighted to have stumbled across it and and help with the following or if anybody can point me in the direction of help it would be much appreciated, now heres the problem

 

We have a small business doing building repair work for insurance companies who are slow payers, we approached the bank for a £1500 overdraft late 07 and they informed us that the best option in view of the costs etc would be to factor the invoices. We took out the agreement in March, although it was in my wifes name for credit reasons, she was not involved and I signed it on her behalf!, It did not work out at all as they had suggested and they informed us when we were taking it out that we only needed a months notice to cancel.

 

The main reason it did not work was, we had a 60 day loan period and as it was taking a average of about 4 months to get paid, after the 60 day period they withdrew the funds and anymore new invoices we loaded up were cancelled out as a result with left us with no option at the time to pay any funds we recieved for the work we had carried out to be paid into our account to assist the running of the business. They contacted us this year and said they felt this was not the best option for out business after they had recommended it!!, I said cancel it as per the 1 month agreement.

 

They said at the time the amount owed to them was !8k, this has now risen to 26k via a solicitor letter yesterday!. They have even included a 4k end of agreement charge!

 

This has cost us approx £1000 per month in charges, how this was ever the best option for us I have no idea, we were missold it and I want to fight it all the way. I have seven days to reply, saying if I disagree with any of it, my wife has a pg signed on it, (although i did it)

Any advice or if i can be pointed in the direction of anybody who can take it on it would be much appreciated

 

Sorry if its a little complicated to understand but any questions answered

The problem here is that if you signed the document thats in another name (wife). The contract may now be void, but could open up a whole can of worms for you, fraud, obtaining money by deception etc.... just tread carefully thats all I'm saying.

You will incur no termination fees if you choose to close your facility with us at any time, unless a fixed termination period has been agreed and documented by both parties at the outset of our agreement. All we ask is that you give us 28 days notice of your intention to terminate, and that all outstanding balances are cleared by the termination date. This will ensure we can transfer your facility within 24 hours of the agreed termination date.

 

The above is taken from the "Business Charter" on the website of Lloyds TSB Commercial Finance

 

If the amount owed at termination was £8,000 and they added a further £4,000 in termination fees, what does the other £14,000 comprise as I assume that it has appeared in some form on a statement

Hi Wildhogs

 

I am currently battling with Lloyds from what was a business angle. I was "forced" (no other option given) to factor, and agree it;s the worst recommendation that I was ever given. What with other bad advice and one thing and another the company had no option but to go into liquidation.

 

I am currently trying to find out whya they have added £7k to my debt with no supporting documents, and mine is under PG.

 

See my thread: Business Debt, PG'S & Lloyds, it is current so pretty near top of the thread.

 

Good luck and keep us updated.

 

S.B.
