    • 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,

 

This is my first post having received a PCN from civil enforcement in March. I decided, after reviewing the excellent threads here, just to ignore.

The letters kept coming at 4-6 weekish intervals and the charge going up and up. They then passed it to Newlyn debt collectors who have send 2 or 3 letters. Again I am just ignoring.

 

However, I have recently learnt that these people have done a credit search against me and this has appeared on my Experian file as of 30 July. I spoke with Experian and they advised me that these people can do this. I have put the search in dispute with Experian since as far as I am concerned there is no debt to pay until they prove their case in court.

 

However this could affect my credit rating. Experian suggested calling the OFT, but I am wondering what this will achieve.

 

Any advise? I am quite happy to keep ignoring these people and am happy to go to court if they should issue a summons, but I will not have them affect my credit rating.

 

Thanks

Taken from Experian's website:

 

Searches of your credit report should have been made with your consent. Most will relate to credit applications you have made but some may be routine checks by your lenders on accounts you already have. Unrecorded enquiries, quotations, identity verification checks and credit report applications are shown for you on your copy of your report but are not seen by lenders

 

 

I had an unauthorised search carried out against me, I complained to Experian who contacted the company who searched me. The company that searched immediately "requested that all traces of their search be removed", and it was.

Hi thanks for the response.

 

This was my view also, but I was informed by Experian that debt collectors can do searches on my without my consent.

 

However I have a dispute open with them and they are going to contact the company who did the search (UK Search).

 

I await their response.

explain to Experian that there is no debt, no signed contract and no court judgment. Strange that a PPC would pay for an Experian search. I am still trying to figure out why they would do this. What do they have to gain ?

Hi,

 

Challenged Equifax re the search performed.

They contacted the company that did the search and surprise surprise they did not respond.

 

Equifax have now removed the debt search from my file.

 

Have now not heard from Newlyn since beginning of July. I wonder if that is the last from them?

I have no other outstanding unpaid debts or debts to that matter other than an upto date mortgage. The search was performed end of July. No one else has contacted me since then. I am fairly sure it was the private parking company, as I cannot see what else it could be.

 

If it had been legitimate then the people who did the search would have responded to Equifax with a reason, they did not.
