    • 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

Yes, they're trying to get you to ring them. Ignore them until the learn to behave in a civilised manner and write to you properly.

 

In the unlikely event that someone turns up, tell them to go away. If they make a nuisance of themselves, call the police.

I just love how they use the word "contacting" What does that mean?

 

Doorstep visit?

Phone call?

Via a medium :)?

 

If by some miracle they actually turn up on your doorstep, you are well within your rights to tell them to foxtrot oscar and if they refuse to leave, call the cops.

 

DO NOT ring them


If you are asked to deal with any matter via private message, PLEASE report it.

Everything I say is opinion only. If you are unsure on any comment made, you should see a qualified solicitor

I wonder what colour their doorstep collectors are?

 

I have seen Mr Brown, Mr White and Mr Green on letters over the years, but have never had any of them at my door.

 

I wouldn't worry too much about it at the moment. Sound like they are on a phishing expedition at the moment.

I think we'll have "The Rainbow Coalition" next.

 

YOU NEVER have to deal with doorstep collectors -- there's plenty of threads explaining the legal right these people have (NONE) and if they attempt to call you can have them evicted for trespassing.

 

The Police will gladly remove them as well if required -- the chances are that these "doorstep collectors" will NEVER turn up.

 

As you read through these Forums you can see that the whole debt collection industry is mired in LIES, INTIMIDATION , HARASSMENT and all other sorts of Dog Poo.

 

NEVER EVER get scared by them -- that's their first tactic. If you remain in control you can usually see off the worst of these "people" like crappyquest and the like.

 

Cheers

I would ring them and ask what biscuits the agent would prefer, as well as if he likes normal or filtered coffee so that you can accomodate him.

 

Alternatively, send them this.

 

Dear Sirs

 

Re:− xxxxxxxxx

Important Notice Re Your Agents attending my home. DO NOT IGNORE.

 

Please note that I am only prepared to communicate with you in writing regarding this matter. As it is your intention to arrange a "doorstep call", I feel that it is necessary to draw your attention to the following:

 

There is only an implied license under English Common Law for certain people to visit me on my property without express permission; the postman and people asking for directions etc (Armstrong v. Sheppard and Short Ltd [1959] 2 Q.B. per Lord Evershed M.R.).

 

Please therefore take note that, I hereby revoke license under English Common Law for you, or your representatives to visit me at my property and if you do so without my permission, you will then be liable to damages for a tort of trespass. You would also be conspiring in a trespass if you sent someone to visit me nevertheless. Any visits to my property may and will be recorded by me and may be used in evidence against your company and or your representative sent.

 

Please note that you will receive no further correspondence from me on this matter. You are to comply with my requests. Failure to take heed of the contents of the letter I have sent you will be at your own cost.

 

Yours faithfully

 

They are chancers, they have no legal right to call on you and probably won't. If they do tell them to go forth and multipy or you will call the Police and report them for trespass.

 

DO NOT BE INTIMIDATED by them.

The first time I got one of these (from a 'Mr Money', no less) I fell for it and rang them. Must have got through to a newbie 'cos she was far too honest and told me they send these 'calling cards' purely to get people to ring in and use them when they don't know if they've the right address. I'd guess the chances of them turning up are slim to zero but, as above, if they do invite them to leave they have no rights.

1) Try not to stress

2) The fact they have caused stress shows the method works as a lot of people would immediately ring to try and sort it out, without realising that they have no right to call anyway

3) The £400 debt you owe, are there any late / missed payment charges included in that? If so you can claim them back and get the initial debt reduced

4) If they do turn up on Saturday, promise me that you will shove the scones in his or hers face, and then squirt squirty cream all over them, at the same time as recording it on a camera, and then post it on here so that I can laugh my socks off

5) If you have some money spare and you are certain that you owe it, pay what you can in the meantime to the OC at a rate that you can afford
