    • Ok thanks guys for all the help & advice I think I will go the DRO option but will open a new bank account somewhere else first etc.  The only other things im little worried about is reading on the DRO it says about I wont be able to apply for credit but what about things like my car insurance as thats classed as credit paying it monthly Plus they say i must not have assets or car worth over £1,000 so what about things like my car worth around 2.5k and as said before when my father passed away he left me his camper that I cant part with its worth about 4k and what about things in house and jewellery etc ?? Can they come to house and check and so on
    • threads merged  please keep to one thread per issue.   dx  
    • read it proprly.. it doesn't say WILL anything and original creditors don't do court as they don't want the judge delving into their business model nor the bad publicity.   as for the FOS you just have to let it run. yours is a very short time since yo put it into them typically it always takes 6-9mts normally before they move on anything though they usually send you an ACK they have the complaint.        
    • Since the last post on this thread I have sent a complaint to the FOS but have not heard anything from them as yet either, I'm guessing they're rather snowed under and on reduced staff so no real surprise.   Still had nothing approaching help from lending stream but today they emailed me default notices for the loans, again demanding I phone them and pay up in full or they will begin court proceedings.   Any advice as to how I should proceed please?
    • Hi,   I received two PCNs in October 2019 from Havering Council. All the below applies to both PCNs, as the correspondences were at the same time:   Fast forward to February 2020, I file witness statements on grounds that I made representations within 28 days but did not receive a rejection notice.   The TEC cancelled charges.   Havering write to me asking for supporting evidence of representations that I made.   I email them screenshots with timestamps of the representations.   In early March Havering reply to me by email 'confirming receipt of email and both cases are now on hold pending an investigation. Please allow time for a full response to be sent.'   Fast forward to 18th June Havering write to me the attached:  Havering Charge Certificate.pdf   Now, it seems as though the sender of this letter is not up to date with both cases and is unaware of the TEC's decisions, as well as the email correspondence.   My questions are, 1) What should I do next? and 2) Is there a way to use their misstep to avoid paying for the PCN entirely?   Thank you.

    • 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 Guys,

 

I have a policy with norwich union and my car was insured since I had it. I've got a MOT(Can't find it but I will request it), valid tax disc. The only problem was that I had changed my number plate and I forgot to update my car insurance about this.

 

So when I was driving yesterday the police stopped me claiming that I do not have any insurance(I still had the old number plate in the back).

 

Anyway my car was seized, despite my original number plate in the back side and the police office told me that I will get 6 points and would have to pay the charges for my car. He also said that once I can proof I had a valid insurance I would not have to pay the charges nor get the points.

 

Do I have any chance of winning in the court, as the car and I were insured, just not with the new number plate wich I put on recently.

 

Help would be appreciated.

Did the officer not ring your insurer from the roadside?

 

Once you produce a valid insurance certificate, then the 6 points and the fixed penalty will probably be dropped, but you will still be liable for the recovery and storage costs.

It was 4 am in the morning and everything was closed.

 

Should I appeal against the decision ? Would it be expensive, if I'd lose this in the court ? Is there a chance of winning?

It proably is worth appealing in Court as the law only requires the driver to be insured.

 

You would need to produce

 

a) your old insurance certificate showing the old VRM;

b) the V988 authorising the change of VRM

c) the new certificate showing the new VRM;

d) evidence that the insurance was continuous regardless of VRM.

 

Whatever happens, you remain liable for the recovery fee (£105?) and storage costs (£12/day?)

b) the V988 authorising the change of VRM

- Is that a standard document you receive? I can't remember having received it.

 

I've got the V5 with the old and new registration certificate. The problem here is that they had my name wrongly spelled on the new v5 certificate. Would that be a problem ?

How have you got the old V5 - it has to be surrendered as part of the VRM transfer?

 

Similarly, you surrender the old MoT certificate and a new one issued for the remaining time (it used to be over printed with the new VRM until computerised MoT tests came into being).

 

If you haven't got a V998, how did you know that the transfer had completed? This is usually issued with 24-48 hours of the transfer request and the new V5 follows some weeks later.

 

Perhaps you can take us through the process you followed and the timeline?

Hi Guys,

 

I just wanted to give you an update.

 

Despite the fact that I had surrendered and sent the money with all documents to the police for the points, I have received an mail telling me that they have completed discussion with my insurance company and could confirm that I had an insurance at that time.

 

This means, no points for me and I've got my money back as well :).

 

Thanks for the help.
