    • 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

Shamone,

 

I have sent my application for my bank charges reclaim under hardship and received a reply today asking me to "provide further information as to the date when I started to experience difficulties and what has caused this situation"

 

There is a "statement of means form" enclosed for me to fill out.

 

I am a little confused as I have read a few threads where people have been turned down due to the charges been occured before the hardship began.

 

I am living with my GF and 1 year old son, I am on ESA as of June 4th (was previously on JSA contribution based since Novemer 2008 and my Gf has just began a part time job.

 

 

any help would be much appreciated

 

 

 

thanx

When did you incur the charges ? You will probably be looking at a possibility of charges back to November 08 as Nationwide are quite sticklery on this one.

Okay. Well I would suspect nationwide will say no as they weren't incurred nor contributed to your period of hardship however I would still complete the income Expenditure forms and send evidence of arrears and see how you go, and a covering letter explaining your circumstances in full.

On income it should be joint income since he contributes towards the bills.

Money Advice Trust - Welcome to the Common Financial Statement

The above links you to a common financial statement. The form you have maybe similar. There is a guide on the link and it should help with filling it in.

yes but as you say they take into account the fact the charges happend before I was in hardship - therefore on the same grounds I argue that they also happend before I had a partners income lol

 

i cannot make out which form i need, they all seem like business ones

 

 

ps, I'm the male lol

Under hardship they will only refund during the period hardship occurred. However, if your partner pays bills with you now then her income is included since she may have helped/is helping pay off priority debt arrears(mortgage/rent, utilities, council tax).

It's up to you what you want to do, but they may ask for more evidence if you don't or may reject the claim.

Whether you are on benefits or not is not necessarily financial hardship. look fill the form in whatever way you want and see what they say. ok?

That is pretty standard from Nationwide. The non priority debts bit should be easy for you ie credit cards, loans, store cards.

 

The other bit is how you did not have the funds to cover your outgoings, ie loss of job, separation from partner, loss of hours. Nationwide are the best of a bad lot in all honesty. They usually will payout during the period of financial hardship occurred.

Does that make sense?

well Nationwide reply is to turn me down as i have only been in hardship for a few months,.

they say that " i was getting paid into this account until dec 2006, i continued to use the account until april 2007 when the lasdt direct debit was called for. Charges were pre-notified to you as they occured and this provided opportunity fot you to deal with the situation. In spite of this charges were incurred up to Jan 2008 and you failed to contact us about the account for the first time until June 2008.

 

 

Any ideas?

Yes they have said no to financial hardship and I can see the logic they have used.
