    • When will most schools actually re-open in September ?   And when they open, will they be providing teaching over the number hours 9am to 3pm  ?   I am thinking of the school I attended, which was a large Victorian building, with many modern extensions.  The classrooms which could accommodate about 35 Children elbow to elbow, will only be able to accommodate 20 at the most with any reasonable distancing.   Or does the whole class  of say 35 stay in a bubble and the teachers move around to teach the different subjects ?    I can see many schools opening later in September, not for all pupils for all days and not doing the full hours.   This is going to be very difficult to manage for all those concerned, including parents looking to return to work.     
    • Hi.   If you do a search of our forums you will find other people who've had trouble with Marquis. Sadly people don't always update their threads with the final result.   Scroll up this page to the red strip at the top, and type Marquis into the white search box on the right.   HB
    • I think independent assessments and quotations will be essential. Once again please monitor this thread for a for the reply later on or tomorrow
    • We'd love to return it but from everything I've read it would a long drawn out business so keeping it would probably be simpler.   I think we are going to give them a chance to sort the heating/hot water.We've got very squeaky brakes now which my local garage is going to look at a week on Monday. I'm saving all receipts etc. I'd also like to charge them for fuel used and my time doing what they should have done.   The time they take to get anything done is what is bothering me. If I choose to go somewhere else for a repair for anything would I be able to charge Marquis or do I have to continue using their warranty   I hadn't thought of getting an independent assessment, not sure how you go about it but I'll look into it. Thanks for the reply  
    • Bristol Energy may be in a difficult position at the moment, as Bristol City Council who own them, have decided to sell .  Whether this has affected them being able to deal with Data Protection Subject Access Requests ?  I should imagine that their customers may be contacting them in large numbers given the uncertainty and that may the reason for any delays.    The OP may want to resolve their issue as soon as possible, as if another energy company does buy the portfolio of customers remaining, I am not sure this would lead to a quicker resolution.

    • 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 went bankrupt in December last year and during the next few months I was alone in the house, so used very little electricity or gas. We got our bill earlier this week saying that they owed us £490. The next day a letter said that our direct debit payments would be going down to £50 (from £99) a month because based on last year’s usage they expect my bill for the next 12 months to be around £600. I don’t think this will be the case as I will have the wife and two kids here this year, and the heating will be on almost constantly during the winter. I am going to ask them to put the direct debit payment back up to £99 per month because of this.

 

Then today I checked my bank and the £490 the Gas company owed me has been paid into my account.

 

Do I need to declare this £490? If I use it to repair my car would this be seen as reasonable?

If you are still in bankruptcy, the best thing to do would be to inform the official receiver of any monies you receive, just to be on the safe side, and prevent any unnecessary bother. Just explain to the OR that you have car repairs to do, and they may be understanding and let you keep all or most of this money aside for that. Best to be honest and upfront about any lump sums received x

Hi Cashdesk

 

I agree with Loobyloo 85

to be on the safe side speak to the OR

If you used and the OR found out it could end up with you having a BRU/BRO

 

Hope this helps

a BRO/U is extra restrictions that can be placed on a bankrupt for up to 15 years

Bankruptcy Restriction Undertaking (voluntary) or Order (by order of a court).

 

Usually an extension of 12 months to the bankruptcy period and a matter of public (and permanent) record.

 

I have not seen it affect the period of an IPA/IPO (Income Payments Agreement/Order). These are for 3 years.

 

Usually these are used for people that heavily abuse the system (take a loan for £25k and spend the money in the full knowledge that they were insolvent shortly before going BR for example).

It should also be noted that a BRO/BRU is simply the first in the line of penalties that can be imposed, for very serious bad behaviour criminal proceedings can be brought as well which is punishable by fines and imprisonment

Whoa! Steady on - the OP had a windfall of £500 - or a change in I&E of £50 a month... On the radar yes, but please don't give them nightmares...

not trying to give them nightmares, just the other poster Firefox asked what they were and it is necessary in explaining what they are to put them in context with the range of outcomes as we dont know what firefox is asking in relation to.

 

just to be clear £500 would never end up in a criminal prosecution as it is below the threshold to submit a case
