    • i point you to two threads whereby you'll see an explanation by andy (post 22 here) https://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/topic/410486-lowell-interim-charging-order-from-credit-card-debt-2009/?tab=comments#comment-4912902   and   https://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/topic/406428-remortgage-issue/   if yours says:    written notice of the disposition was given to XX Council ( - disposition = sold vis: disposed of) ..... notice means letter telling them it's been sold -    doesn't say it must be paid or settled BEFORE disposition..   that's the way i read it.          
    • dx100uk   You are absolutely correct. That's exactly what the wording is! And if that's the case then - happy days for me! However, I thought that:   1. This wording meant the conveyancing solicitor had to tell the council that the house was about to be sold so they were aware!   But you are saying that the council only needs to be informed AFTER the house has been sold? Can I tell the council that? [I think I've seen something on the internet that says I can, rather than the CS] Or do I need the conveyancing solicitor to contact the council?   2. That this wording wasn't a restriction K [as I'd looked at Schedule 4 of the Standard Forms of Restriction] and tried to match my wording to those listed - and thought restriction K was the closest.     3. That this was a non-standard restriction [and that's what the Land Registry told me too and that the restriction was not a Restriction K!!! [see extract below]   Please remember that when applying for a restriction not in standard form:   it must always contain the words ‘is to be completed by  registration’ rather than ‘is to be registered’. This will serve to make the effect of the restriction clear. The term ‘registered’, where used in any of the standard form restrictions, means the completion of a registrable disposition by complying with the relevant registration requirements prescribed in Schedule 2 to the Land Registration Act 2002 (rule 91(3) of the Land Registration Rules 2003), but this statutory definition only applies to standard form restrictions. Please note that we will not accept restrictions not in standard form for registration that contain the words ‘is to be registered’   So I'm confused now. IF it is a restriction K - then the conveyancing solicitor doesn't have to do anything and I can let the council know.   It seems it is dependent on the wording 'completed by registration' and 'is to be registered'???   Below is copied from Martin's MSE.   This relies again on the 'is to be registered' whereas my wording is ' completed by registration' which you say is restriction K and LR says is not.   I need to go to sleep now!   Thanks dx.   Extract from MSE below.   If your property is jointly owned a creditor will not be able to obtain a CO against you, they can only get what is called a restriction. The laws on Restrictions are totally different to Orders, the most important being there is NO OBLIGATION for you to pay any of the proceeds of the sale to the creditor. However, during the whole court process you go through the reference from all parties (especially the creditor) will be to charging order and NOT to restriction. This is done in order to deceive you believing you are stuck with a CO. However, not all solicitors are aware of the law in this regard and it is important that you raise this point with them in the first instance before proceeding with them Quote: Restriction The restriction which can be entered on the register where a charging order is made against one of joint proprietors is in the following form :- No disposition of the registered estate is to be registered without a certificate signed by the applicant for registration or his conveyancer that written notice of the disposition was given to [name of person with the benefit of the charging order] at [address for service], being the person with the benefit of /I]an interim[I/I]a final[I charging order on the beneficial interest of (name of judgment debtor) made by the (name of court) on (date) (Court reference.…).        
    • Hi Tony,   Please ensure YF does NOT acknowledge any debt  when confirming their new address.   They should simply state, " Please note my new address, as shown above."   Do not say anything about "a debt owed", or "the money you are chasing."   Do nothing that resets the SB Clock - ie acknowledging the debt and causing probs for the next 6 years. 
    • you ring you bank    
    • i suspect the charge on the Land registry site against the house reads:   2. (XX.XX.2007) RESTRICTION: No disposition of the registered estate is to be completed by registration without a certificate signed by the applicant or his conveyancer that written notice of the disposition was given to XX Council at P.O. Box XX, STREET, TOWN, POSTCODE, being the person with the benefit of a Charge under Section 22 of the Health and Social Services and Social Security Adjudications Act 1983.   ..............   that is a restriction k and is useless to the council, as all 'legally' your have to do is inform them AFTER the house has been sold . then it's too late money has gone.   dx

    • 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, what support package do you have? usually its 3 repairs + 1 (request) and this is usually granted, 3 mobos is crap in 1 year but if it fails again then it might be worth demanding for replacment. as its cost affective for the copmany to keep repairing and causing you hasle for sending it away etc.

Coverplan will do as it says in the policy "unlimited repairs" unless its beyond economical repair.

 

If its had 3 repairs in the space of such a short time, book it for repair, then wait a few days then call them back up and ask for a write off. Thats the way its usually done, if you book it for a write off it simply be fixed and sent back.

 

So book it again, then call in a few days once its at the work shop and put your write off request in.

If the first original repair hasn't went over 42 days then the guys on the phone will be right in what they're saying

Good job labrat you do what I do, if I get through to someone that is obviously unhelpful I just hang up and redial, every company has useless staff and the trick is not to waste your time on them. I even offer to send them a copy of the recording of the call.

 

With the Watchdog story I thought people coming round to peoples houses doing work and turning round saying they are not qualified is a bit daft. However I am surprised they ran the story about the lady that lost pictures of her grand kids because the computer went faulty. How is the data on your computer the responsibility of a retailer :!:

ok now this is really doing my head in

 

laptop collected 20th of september - start of 6 weeks rule

returned 6th october

sent back again the 7th october

receaved back in store 12th october they tried to contact us but couldnt

i rang the store 14th october to get an update and was told is in store so collected

19th october went faulty again so booked in via store

still on going

 

rang up for a write off today was told no the reason being that they say theres a gap of more than 7 days

 

they have listed the repairs as

 

20th sep - 6th october

7th october - 11th october

21st october - ongoing

 

the problem is that they have got the dates down wrong it should be

 

20th sep - 6th oct

7th oct - 12/14 oct (date in store/date picked up)

19th october (rebooked date) - ongoing

 

the problem im having and to put it politely is the sheer stuborn headness and inpoliteness of the call center

 

dispite trying to explain that the previous person had got the dates wrong when they said no the call center person i spoke to ignored me, talked over me, stated that it wasnt there job to check dates as the previous person had already done this dispite having this explained to them by both me and the store

 

im on the verge of calling in trading standards as theyve told me i must now wait another 6 weeks from the 21st october at which point the laptop will have been away for around 13 weeks in total.

 

im sure this is incorrect somewhere and i must admit i got quite shirty with the lass (without swearing) and pointed out that no-where in the terms and conditions i signed was this part about no gaps of a week or more and that it didnt apply as i didnt have a gap of over a week, at this point she stated that this was my problem not theres and i hung up

how does this sound

 

 

Dear sir or madam

 

i wish to complain about your lack of service over my account and the poor service offered by your call center representives

 

on the 20th of september my laptop (advent k6000) was collected by your repair services, the repair seemed to go well until we receaved the laptop back on the 6th of october at this point we realised that the fan wasnt working and that the unit rapidly over heated causing it to turn off

at this point we arranged a pickup via the store on the 7th of october this was repaired and returned to the store on the 12th of october however when the store tried to contact us they could not get hold of us and therefore the laptop wasnt collected from store untill around the 14th when i rang the store to get an update on the repair

we took the laptop home and used it as normal until it again failed on the 19th of october at this point we took it into store again and they booked it for collection

being aware of the 6 week limit for repairs we rang up on the 31st of october as it was still in repair and requested a write off this was refused as there had been a gap of more than a week in the repairs, we were unhappy with this but left off the call at this point to check on dates

looking down these dates we noticed that the staff had not used the correct dates in their working out on ringing up to correct these i spoke to what may have been the most un-helpful person in your services who stated that it wasnt her job to re-check the dates as the previous person had already done it, while trying to explain that the previous person had used incorrect dates i was talked over, interupted and generally informed that this was not her issue.

at this point i was informed that i would have to wait at least a further 6 weeks from the 21st of october, at this point my laptop will have been with yourselves for a total of around 13 weeks

 

What we require is our coverplan honouring and the terms and agreements that we signed sticking to, we have re-read these and no where in these does it state this rule over gaps

Hi Lab

 

It might be an idea to send a complaint to john.browett@dixons.co.uk he's the CEO. Tell him whats happened, give dates. Tell him how you want the matter resolved. Mark the e-mail Formal Letter of Complaint.

Hi,

Sorry for the late reply.

 

Have you tried getting someone to call the medics in store and getting them to sort it. They can push issues through, when speaking to customer service, they're normally just emailing someone else, where the medics will deal with it hands on.

 

May resolve this issue quicker. By time letters are wrote, i think you'll have vouchers or the laptop back.
