    • Nothing to do with your own Bank.     Try to withdraw the money from Parentpay early next week and if no joy contact them.   It may be that the money is showing, but has not fully cleared on their system,
    • Hi all,   Just an update with contractual terms. These terms are from a contract at a similar time to when Tracey started as we think they have changed since.   The contract reads as follows:   Termination of employment  Xxxxxxx (Nursery) will provide written notice of termination of your employment in accordance with statutory requirement (currently 1 week’s notice for each year of continuous service, up to a maximum 12 week’s notice).   Once you have successfully completed your probationary period for the company you are required to give 1 month’s written notice of termination of employment.   Regards   Matt             
    • Thanks for helping with the post;   Still waiting for a reply from the DPD.
    • I thank the Consumer Action Group Members for getting me this far in my case which is still in progress.   Situation: The Court has reversed earlier permission for me to rely on witness summaries.    The question upon which I am seeking help, please,  is - do I need to bother myself as to why the Court has reversed permission to rely on witness summaries?  If so, what line of logic or law can might I follow because clearly, the Court has said one thing and then another a few weeks later, of its own motion, the Court has reversed the earlier decision. I find this development quite extraordinary in the sense that as a result of being granted permission earlier, I served the three Witness Summons which had the Court stamp.   Background Having given me permission to serve 'Witness Summons' which I served on 3 hostile witnesses several weeks ago, the Court has now reversed it's earlier decision, and refused me permission to rely on 'witness summaries' pursuant to paragraph 32.9(2), citing that I have not shown steps taken to obtain witness statements from the 3 hostile witnesses.  I however, made two attempts to talk to the hostile witnesses who have been non responsive and I can evidence this.   I would be immensely grateful for some steer from Forum Members, please.

    • 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, I wondered if someone can help with this?


I Purchased a car which turns out had an outstanding agreement with LBL.

Dont want to through whole process of what has happened but i had to pay LBL to keep the car as i had letters from courts etc.

I was checking the bill of sale which i asked LBL for, The loan was taken out by the person who i bought the car off on 14th DEC 2007 and was not registered in court until the 27th DEC 2007, thats a gap of about 13 days!.

I thought it had to be registered within 7 days?


Im thinking of contacting a solicitor to try and get my money back but is it worthwhile.


Any help is much appreciated.

In accordance with the Bills of sale Act 1878, the registration needs to be within seven clear days of it being signed

Hi, I suggest as a first port of call you contact the royal courts in the strand where all the BOS's are sent.


drob is quite correct all BOS's have to be registered within 7 days. They are returned after this and the lender has to give a valid reason for the delay and pay an extra cost. The courts then decide if they will register it (a large percentage are accepted) which makes it in effect the same as 7 days. What makes me think here, is the dates and time of year, ie christmas. The royal courts shut for 4 days over this period, this combined with xmas post is often a reason they are late at this time of year and a readily accepted reason by the courts. All the lender needs to do is prove it was sent recorded next day delivery on or before the 6th day.


Enquire with the RCJ, they will tell you if it was late and if it was accepted. If its was then Im afraid this is binding, if not, the loan isnt worth the paper its written on but no point in speculating when you can find out 100%

boocoo is correct on some points but not totally correct on others...


where a bill of sale is registered out of time - the car company will receive a letter from the RCJ to let them know the Bill of Sale has been registered but has been registered out of time. A master would only accept the registration as an out of time registration in this circumstances 'without prejudice'.


The loan company know this - and they also know that in order to have the bos registered as an enforceable document they would have to make an application to the courts and go through the legal process necessary to have the document registered as a valid document.


If they have not done this - then whilst the document is 'registered' it is not necessarily a 'valid' or 'enforceable' document, as it still needs to comply fully with regulations and also the 1878 act and the 1882 act


so don't be fooled when you are told it is registered because it has the high court of Justice stamp on it.....even when a document has been registered within 7 days - if it does not meet regulations and the law it can still be found to be an unenforceable document.


Further, the only dates that are not counted within the '7' days are only bank holidays and Sundays - for the period in question 7 days counts from the 14th, - please see the link for the 2007 calendar below Calendar 2007 with UK Bank Holidays - TheBigProject.co.uk


The Law is quite clear '7' days...


The Queens Bench guide will give you clarification of what is recognised as 'court days' and help you decifer if the 21st or the 24th was the deadline in your case.


Whilst a large amount are 'accepted' for registration - please bear in mind the 'without prejudice' rule above and also note this does NOT make them 'within 7 days' because it DOES NOT and a bos registered 'without prejudice' DOES NOT make it 'binding'


hope this helps clarify matters : )

Applecart. This information is intersting. Could you tell me how someone finds out if the BOS has been accepted with or without prejudice after 7 days and why the courts accept and stamp them after the 7 days if they have not passed the full accaptence process? In other words if the reason for being late has not been acceptable (maybe a postal strike would be okay but illness wouldnt?) what purpose and status does the BOS have? Im assuming it must still play some part else why accept it without prejudice, and not just send it back to the lender as it is now worthless, or is that the point?

Hi Boocoo


The information is to be found in the Queens Bench Guide - see sections 13.4.3 & 13.4.6


the HCJ is specifically there to 'register' Bills of Sale, they are not there to deal with the authenticity of any Bill of Sale - what they will do is let the person/company registering the Bill of Sale know if it has been registered out of time.


It is then up to that individual or company to decide if they are happy with the registration purely on a 'without prejudice' basis or not. 9 times out of 10, it would seem that most companies are happy to leave 'out of time' registrations registered 'without prejudice' - I assume they do this as they presume the majority of their clientelle are likely to be ignorant of the law.


The best way to find out if it has been accepted 'without prejudice' is to ask at the HCJ


My opinion is that the purpose of the bill of sale - and don't forget it is a very old law (soon to be abolished, if the white paper goes through) is simply as it was always intended 'a security'.


Anyone can register 'a security' - but due to the amended act of 1882 and regulations introduced - consumers are better protected now, than previous - The queens Bench Guide 2006 is a great help for consumers.


Moving forward - the best protection for consumers, is when the Bill of Sale Act is abolished!!!
