    • My job I've been in for 8 years, my contract is to give a week's notice.   I have 10 days holiday coming up starting next week. If I message the boss 3 days into that holiday and tell him I'm not coming back can it be used as 7 days notice (ie a week). I have a lot of holiday entitlement left this year about 70 hours.   So 2 questions please without judgement just facts:   1. If I phone boss three days into my 10 day holiday next week to formally tell him I'm quitting is that legal? 2. Can they get out of paying me my 70hrs holiday entitlement if I take that route?   (Massive global company not one man and his dog operation, if it affects the advice)  
    • Hi everyone. We purchased a new bed from dreams 26/12/2017 which was delivered 01/02/2018.  We also purchased their delivery, assembly, take the old one away, tv, mattress, mattress protector, pillows and their 'bed cover' 8 years extended warranty.  We paid by 30 monthly interest free instalments and so just made the final payment.   It is a heavy duty king size lift up storage bed with a built in tv at the end.  It has always been a struggle to lift, my wife cannot do it on her own and it rarely stays up by itself.   At the beginning of this year, we noticed it had started to dip considerably in the middle.  Not the mattress, but the wooden base the mattress is on.  So on 09/02/2020 I emailed them about the issue.  They started by saying the mattress is not covered only the base, until I pointed out it is the base at fault not the mattress.  So they sent out Homeserve on the 25/02/2020 to come and repair.  He did what he called a temporary repair, said that the bed had failed due to a manufacturing or design fault (the metal bolts holding the wooden base to the lift up supports have pulled out of the wood) and that dreams would be in touch to arrange a replacement.  His temporary repair barely lasted a day, the bed was still dipping and he took plenty of photos for himself but seemed in a mad rush to leave.   Of course they didn't contact us, so on 30/03/2020 I emailed them back.  01/04/2020 they emailed back confirming in writing that it is a manufacturing fault and their sales team would contact me, however as expected due to Covid-19 this may take a while.   30/06/2020 I asked for an update.  03/07/2020 they replied saying their claims department would contact me within 5 working days.  They didn't. 15/07/2020 I emailed back asking them to escalate my complaint as well as providing a refund and compensation as we are now struggling to sleep and experiencing back ache due to the bed's extreme dipping, plus I am worried about the mattress getting damaged. 23/07/2020 They replied saying we are not entitled to a refund as it is a guarantee claim and they have passed it once again this time to their guarantee company to contact us. I have still not heard back.   This is now getting beyond a joke and I wanted some guidance on how I should proceed.  We are struggling to sleep in the bed and cannot now even open the bed to access our belongings inside as as soon as you try and lift you hear the sound of breaking wood.   Many thanks

    • I know you are trivialising this as, 'Ambulance Chasing Lawyers', because they are perceived to be involved. You mention BMW (other brands as well). Counterfeit car and truck parts have been implicated, and proven to be the cause, of accidents where fatalities have occurred.   There is some considerable difference between a set of counterfeit brake pads and a fake SD Card.   The trademark infringement though, is the same.   H
    • One hope in this growing mess is that local authorities, mainly in the north west so far, like Liverpool, are developing their own systems to test and trace, filling in the gaps of what Serco et al are missing.   But they're doing it with precious little in the way of funding. In the meantime it looks as if Serco [I think it's them] will be given more hundreds of millions on top of the £100 million that hasn't been effective so far in a couple of weeks. Given that the PM has swanned off to Scotland for a couple of weeks this isn't looking good.

    • 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

I got this...th_sarloan1.jpgth_sarloan2.jpg

 

 

When they say the CCA does not come under the remit of a SAR, is this right?

 

Also is it possible to claim back PPI on a loan that was fully paid in 2004?

Dear oh dear. RBS making it up as they go along!

 

A SAR is a legal request for them to supply 'Everything' that either has your name on, or is any such transcript regarding contact between 'you' and the 'bank'.

 

So if that is all they have supplied you, two random pieces of paper, then you MUST send them a LBA (letter before action) to tell them to fully comply with the SAR within the stated time limit laid down (40 days) or you will report them to the ICO for failing to comply with legislation and will be liable to a substantial fine.

 

A SAR should provide you with everything in relation to your account and dealings with this moronic bank since you opened the account, they are talking bowlarks...and hoping you don't know your legal rights.


Who ever heard of someone getting a job at the Jobcentre? The unemployed are sent there as penance for their sins, not to help them find work!

Oddly enough this morning another package arrived via DHL no less, presumably the rest (or at least more of) the SAR. It's roughly the size of the Shanghai phone book, there must be at least a ream of paper of seemingly random nonsense all codes and meaningless tables (at least to me). I honestly don't know where to start.

 

I was really hoping they would just send a copy of all statements and make it easy for me to work out how many charges I've incurred over the years...but I suppose they don't really want to make it easy, do they?

 

Glancing through it I did at least get a chuckle, one of the sheets has my customer details and under the heading..."High net worth customer?" is a big fat "NO!"

as for the PPI there is no time limit

 

it is from when you 'becamne aware' it was mis-sold [6yrs from that date]

 

statute of limitations act sec 32c applies

Thanks dx, that's interesting because I was unaware of any issues at all until I joined CAG.

 

I have started reading through some of the stickies in the PPI forum, unfortunately the information is quite overwhelming. I did however note this...

 

Before reclaiming or cancelling PPIlink3.gif you should have a look at the following Notes and see what type of PPI you actually have. Always consider all the facts and figures before starting a claim.. Whatever you do Do Not Just Jump In without researching your own policy, and don’t be afraid to ask for help / advice on the forums on CAGlink31.gif.

 

As you can see, RBS cannot locate any documentation relating to the loan so I am completely in the dark as to how to even start.

 

Any ideas on how to get the ball rolling so to speak?

I do know the actal figure of how much PPI I paid, it was just under £1000. I honestly can't believe I would have signed up for that level of insurance without being given all the facts. They also told me the account number and sort code to identify the loan and the start and end date.

 

However...because they have also stated they cannot locate any documentation about this loan I am unsure on what grounds to challenge the PPI. I am self employed now but not at the time of the loan. Is there a list somewhere of possible reasons for claiming back the PPI? What's the first step?

see the notes for claimants sticky at the top of the ppi forum homepage

 

you'll still need the interest rate they charged though.

 

unless you know [PCM] the portion of your payments that was the PPI.

Ah, ok. I (and apparently RBS) don't know that.

 

The loan amount was £6000, the PPI was £966. I presume (but can't be certain) that the PPI was added to the loan amount.

Looks like my bedtime reading for the next few weeks is sorted then :)

so that was 996 TOTAL [inc interest?]

if so divide that the no' of mts and you have your PCN PPI payment to calc from.
