    • If its a domestic address and a normal account, thought they could only bill who is on the Tenancy agreement or Mortgage, as isn't a Tenancy in Common. if Joint tenancy and other party gone, didn't think children who have gained majority can be held liable, as not on any paperwork, apart from Electoral roll.  Is a Lodger liable?
    • Thank you so much for explaining that to me much appreciated 
    • It's not so bad then.  1250L is the standard tax code, and means he can earn £12500 pounds without paying tax, and then just pay tax on anything he earns over that amount.   Due to technically being out of work, and claiming UC, and now going back to work, the code is saying that he will pay tax on anything earned over £6500 pounds now, but it is under review and should change within the next 8-12 weeks, and if he has overpaid in the meantime, then it will be refunded via his paycheck.   The only reason for this is I am assuming that while shielding, his company did not keep him on the books.  If HMRC have got a record of him being on the books, and claiming UC, this will be them determining that he hasn't been trying to fraud the system by being paid as employed at the same time as claiming UC.  Once they clear that up, then they will correct the tax code.  So long as all his earnings and benefits all add up and they are happy then it will be back to normal.
    • Good Afternoon,   I am hoping to receive some advice regarding the below topic.   I was looking to purchase a property off-plan with a incentive attached and in order to secure this you pay a 'finder's fee'.     The fee was paid but then the property was un-mortgageable due to various reasons including the incentive being offered.   Having gone back to the agent to ask for a return of the finder's fee - they have refused saying that the incentive does not need to be disclosed and that essentially my broker is useless and I should use theirs!   Their broker also advised it would be hard to get a mortgage with the incentive disclosed which backs up what my broker has said.    This fee will now be kept on account.     I signed a form which confirms that the finders fee is non refundable - which was my error I should have checked if the property was mortgageable beforehand - however I wondered if there was anything I could do because:   The property is un-mortgageable - my broker tried all lenders including those who are happy with the incentive which was offered They have advised to withhold information which is clearly questioned in the mortgage application process   This is not a case of pulling out, this is a case that I cannot get finance and so cannot proceed.   Thanks in advance.

    • 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,

 

Months ago I looked around for a low intrest loan to pay off MBNA credit card that had an interest free deal. Then got a call saying the debt was unenforceable and do I want to go down that route. After days of thinking about it I decided to try and so gave Benificial claims the go ahead. After months after they said it was unenforceable they pasted it onto Eastly Solicitors to fight. They have done nothing and MBNA kept saying they didnt have the right to deal with Eastlys as they hadnt received the correct paperwork/permision to deal with them on my behalf. Now after months MBNA have sold the debt onto Experto. I received a letter from Experto today saying they are concerned I failed to respond to a previous letter (I did receive it) and that I have 2 options, 1. commit ot a regular amout each month until balance is cleared. or 2. contact them to negotiate a discounted settlement figure. I rang them to see what the discount figure would be on teh £8500 I owe. She said they would give me 10% off. I said there was no way I could raise that sort of money. She said to give them some info and they would then present this all to Varde Investments LTD. This is the ifo they are wanting from me:

 

Further to your conversation today with Gema please find below the information needed to present your settlement to Varde Investments LTD. Please respond to the questions giving as much information as possible.

MBNA card number: xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Account reference: xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Yourself

What is your marital status?

Do you have any dependent children (under the age of 18) if so how many?

Your Property

How long have you lived at your current address?

Are you a homeowner?

If so when did you purchase the property?

How much did you purchase it for?

What is the current value?

Is there any equity in the property?

Are there any charges, secured loans or mortgage top-ups on the property?

Your Employment

Are you currently employed, self employed, retired or on benefits?

If you are employed who is your employer and what is your job title?

Are you full time or part time?

Other Creditors

Please list any other creditors you have and the balances currently owed to them.

Income and Expenditure

Please also attach an income and expenditure showing your incoming funds each month and your expenditure. You will need to include your partners earnings and expenditure too.

Please also advise us of how you would intend to clear the debt if you were unable to raise a settlement figure.

Finally, when making your offer please advise us of the source of funds, when they would be available and which method of payment you would use to transfer the funds.

This information is needed so that we can present your offer to the underwriters in the best possible light and try to agree a good figure on your behalf. If your offer is not accepted the underwriters will suggest a figure they would be happy to accept. We look forward to hearing from you and hope we can assist in getting this matter resolved.

 

I am unsure what to do. I can afford to pay the money back monthly, but just feel so mad as originally I wanted to do the right thing and pay it then gave in to Benificial claims and now have a default registered on my name. So am thinking if I have a defauld I might as well stick to my guns and not pay.

 

If someone can give me advice that would be great. Do I just keep ignoring them or try for a better settlement figure. What figure would be a good figure to offer them onn the £8500 I owe.

 

Many thanks

Rob

ruddy fleecers.

 

you seriously need to do some reading in this forum & the DCA forum.

 

the agreement is obviously unenforceable or the bal is made of loads of charges or of mis-sold PPI.

 

NO company will EVER offer a discount if the debt is enforceable and another pointer is the fact that MBNA have sold it too

 

you are under no legal obligation to pay anyone anything, they cant go to court so they are stuffed.

 

never ever ring a dca!!

 

time to ignore everyone now.

Well I would write asking for a copy of the CCA, although Beneficial claims should already have it.

 

Can you get a copy an scan it here?

Interesting,the op has a property and mbna still sold teh account to experto,sounds to me like they know its non-enforceable as they'd chance their arm in court with even a dubious cca.

 

Both of my accounts were sold to expereto but then again i have no property or anything they can take.I posted my cca's up on my thread and the common consensus was they were unenforceable as well.

Yes, that's what I meant dx write to the MBNA for it. Just pointed out that beneficial claims should already have it, as they have stated that it is unenforceable.

 

Strange that name should crop up, one of my MBNA accounts was originally Beneficial Bank. :-)

 

Have you paid these people any money Robert?
