    • Can you ask your GP to get a second opinion on the NHS?  (I ought to know because I'm a retired NHS manager, but worked in mental health where x-rays didn't really feature very much(!).)   Your GP may be reluctant for various reasons but you've got nothing to lose by asking.  Might be difficult if there's only one consultant in that specialty locally.   If that is a non-starter, you could ask your GP for a private referral if any of the relevant specialists run private clinics.  Your son'll get seen quicker and an initial private consultation shouldn't cost more than about a couple of hundred quid.  Then take it from there.   (Emphasise to your GP what your real concerns are and why you have them - even if it's just "I looked it up on the internet and it looks like this which can lead to serious complications.  What do you think?  I'm really worried...")   EDIT:  Just looked on my local NHS Clinical Commissioning Group website and searched for "second opinion" but nothing comes up...  I thought you were entitled to one - you'll have to ask your GP.  Or look on your own CCG site.  Oh - despite being a NHS manager I have paid to see a consultant privately.  £150 well spent - if you can afford it... which I appreciate not everyone can.
    • dont think they are even allowed to offer settlement by instalments, they are not creditors.   read the letter carefully and understand what it doesn't actually say....like the word WILL anywhere.   they,  a DCA, can't recommend anything and their client most certainly wouldn't have disclosed anything to a powerless DCA about what their solicitors might or might not have said to them. and ofcourse a solicitor is in no position whatsoever to suggest to their client they get back to the DCA and tell the DCA to tell you their client will accept instalments!   the letter is a load of ole BS that is concocted by the dca without any input or knowledge of their client nor their clients solicitor...   dx      
    • The paediatric orthopaedic consultant at the fracture clinic told us today that he believes it is just a sprain behind the knee. I'm concerned my GP will say something along the lines of, 'you have seen a consultant, he says it will heal in 2 to 3 weeks, you don't know more than him!', or something like that. It's just that I believe I can clearly see a fracture. And as there was no fall or hard knock, only a very tightly streched knee bending at an angle behind, with a load. I figured that the temdon must have pulled some bone up. And thats the injury I found online. I totally take on board what you are saying. You are correct. I guess I'll see what my GP says tomorrow, hopefully she allows me to email the images, if she doesent have access to them already. Thanks again

    • 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

When a dispute concludes, can the creditor demand the full arrears of the payments that should have been made during the dispute? ie demand one lump sum - or else?

Hi there

Glad you started a new thread on this because I think it definitely needs to be cleared up.

We need to know the EXACT position in Law on what happens if a LEGAL debt is proven to be VALID AFTER a sizeable period of "Debt in dispute".

 

Technically the debt should restart again with the same amount and LEGAL charges owing as it was at the time it was put into dispute but starting again from the NEW date but I'm sure sleazebag Banks and DCA's won't waste any time in trying to claim extra BACK charges.

 

Note -just to make CLEAR these are for DEBTS that ARE properly constituted with proper paperwork etc.

 

Nothing in this thread should stop you of course from trying to avoid Court action or giving in to scare mongering threats from DCA's or even trying to come to some arrangement with the creditors.

 

I just think we need to know the legal position here as nobody seems to have come up with any answer tested in Court.

 

Cheers

They have 12 days to come up with the paperwork. If they do then I assume they would be entitled to payment for the 12 days. After twelve days they are then in breach, I cant see how they can charge if they do not comply within the 12 days.

These companies know the twelve day period exists then they should have provided a system were they could come up with the relevant documents within the specified time.

 

Saying that it would be interesting to see a ruling on the actual point.

Hi all

Has any cagger out there had a debt contested for a while and then found out that it IS after all enforceable - and whether interest / payments during the period in dispute have been added on.

 

I would imagine this could also make an Unfair Charges case on to the debt possibly rendering it again invalid while these charges are disputed.

 

I think what most of us would dearly love to see is an actual Court ruling on this.

 

Probably difficult to find as it will probably be lumped under Unfair / Extortionate charges.

 

Cheers

NO interest OR charges can be added onto a disputed account, the only way in which a disputed or deadlocked account can be legally enforced is in a court, IF it gets to that stage then yes the OC or claimant can ask for reasonable costs incurred to be added to the total debt, should the DJ find the agreement/account to be enforceable, on the contrary the defendant can also ask for subsequent costs and damages should the agreement be found to be unenforceable.

 

Once the agreement is found to be enforceable, only then can interest begin bearing in mind that the claimant/oc will have been awarded the Statutory interest of 8% which will have been added to the total debt outstanding, and the interest rate can only coincide with what the defendant had previously agreed to in the contract/agreement originally signed or taken out.

Bazook, so that means they can't ask for X months of backpayments of the principle either?

Unless it is written into the initial agreement that was signed at the beginning of the contract/agreement, which you and they signed,then NO, if you dispute the account/agreement then ALL interest and charges are stayed, until such time that a Judge either confirms or negates that the agreement/contract is legally binding, and only then is the OC/plaintiff able to add reasonable charges in bringing the case in front of a Judge and allowed to add 8% interest, the back payments your referring to will be combined in with the plaintiffs legal action, so they cannot simply add spurious fees and charges, there is no back payment, all that you will be forced to pay is the debt outstanding plus 8% interest and any legal/court fees.

They can 'demand' what they like, the question is, what actual rights do they have to even make that demand. If you were making payments to them, then continue, I mean, how the heck are they going to enforce this 'demand' you have not signed an Agreement to that end! I could demand that you pay the money to me, how would I make that happen?:???:


Every journey begins with a single step :):)

The only person entitled to your Personal Finance details is a Judge not a DCA

 

Move all banking activity to another banking group if you have a dispute - your funds can be used to offset debts within the same group.

Be careful with Banking details (card/account numbers) as these can be used to take unauthorised payments.

I should point out that I don't want to get into CCJ territory. But neither do i want a mega bill and a default notice for not paying it. harrassed, are you saying that I should continue paying them what I think is right during the dispute?

You need to be a lot more specific, i.e. what was the dispute about, the attitude of the guy on the phone?, the colour of his tie? lol.

Or did you ask for proof of the debt, such as a CCA request

 

Really if you raised the dispute, its not over until you say its been resolved to your satisfaction...its not for them to say its resolved


Please note i have no legal training any advice i give comes from my own experience and from what i have learned on this site
