    • Tricky ! If someone in this situation wanted to continue to Insure their car on a comprehensive basis they would find it difficult.  Most people would want comp cover, so a car is fully covered, even though they might not be driving it,   Suggest contacting an Insurance Brokers to ask what they can arrange.   If Insurance is not available, find a storage option, so the car can be kept off the road and SORN. 
    • I cant help thinking that if we had to complete a questionaire that asked if you were "physically able bodied" before you were interviewed then this would be classed as discriminative.   Yet you can be asked to explain a gap in employment and that this is not classed as discriminative to people who may have had a mental breakdown.   Ok on this occasion I had taken a work break, if thay had asked a bout a break I had taken 10 years earlier then it would have been a different story as I had suffered depression and anxiety at that time.   It just seams to me that it puts people who have had a mental health issue at a disadvantage.      
    • I am just outside of the HS" zone for compulsory purchase. However,I put my house up for sale 4 weeks ago, and have had 2 viewers. Both said they like the house but the threat of HS2 having framework across the road put them off buying my house.    I am aware that I can take HS2 to court and get the court judge to (hopefully),force HS2 to purchase my house at market value under the Blight Order.    How do I go about starting the process?. Which court would the case go to?. Am i best enlisting a claims specialist with success in this field?.    The estate agent who my house is on the market with has told me that they have the feedback documentation from the 2 viewers testifying that HS2 put them off buying my house, so they would be available to the court.    Apparently there has already been 1 successful case on my street, and 1 two streets down, and there is another case on my street going through the court.    Any help, laws,quotes etc would be greatly appreciated.
    • Hi HubbaLoo and welcome to CAG   It's no surprise that the likes of CARS and Harlands  make far more charging admin fees than they do from taking a small monthly percentage of the gym fees.   It's best to tell CARS your new address - best that you know what they're up to at all times.   Send them a typed letter (no emails for now) saying:-   Dear sir or madam,   Membership at [town/city] DW Gym   My current address is as shown above.   I cancelled my membership when I relocated and supplied details of moving. I do NOT have to supply utility bills etc as demanded from you and will not enter into further correspondence with you.   If you continue to harass me for payments of admin fees, I will make formal complaints to the appropriate authorities.   Yours faithfully.    
    • It is not the DVLA that insist it must be insured, it is s.144A, Road Traffic Act 1988. Off road and SORN is one of the exceptions - s.144B of the same act.

Hello all,

 

I fell behind on my egg loan some months ago. It went to default and then to two debt collection agencies (or perhaps one but with different names!).

 

I've not received a couple of letters, allegedly from a solicitors. Question one is if I should take this seriously? http://i557.photobucket.com/albums/ss15/njohns78/EggloanSolicitorsLetter0002.jpg

 

I have received documentation from egg but have just been poor scanning/uploading and checking. The loan would be from about 2008.

 

My thought is to put a holding letting into the solitictor saying that I'm investing the legality of the CCA and correspondence is being put together for egg?

 

That sound sensible? any other advice welcome.

 

Many thanks

 

NGJ

If your loan was taken out after 2007, then chances are it has all the I's dotted and the T's crossed.

 

Was there any PPI added, which could possibly have been mis sold ?

ok...... apologies in advance for being a bit sketchy, I'm away with work but need to respond to BC by the 26th, so feedback welcome on the little info I can provide.

 

I took out a loan for £15k in about 2002. I then subsequently topped this up 2-3 years later to £25k, consolidating all of my debts at the time. About a year ago I became unable to pay the monthly £400, my view at the time was better to pay 2-3 other debts than just one. Subsequently the account went into arrears and then into default. The debt was oringally passed to Frederickson's - who I didn't take sersiously.

 

I've not responded to BC at all yet. Given that I now only have a couple of days left to do so then want to say something, even if a delaying tactic.

 

My earnings are still very low. I certainly couldn't afford £400 a month, if I need to start making repayments - to stop a CCJ. I am also a company director so this really wouldn't help me!

 

Many thanks in advance for your helpful words.

If of note I should have also added that I have two credit cards with egg - of £3.7k and £3.8k. Both services have been withdrawn but I am making the minimum monthly payment - not sure that is relevant with any response in trying to settle this.

 

Thanks again.

Thanks dx.

 

Is the intention of this to slow them down or that they have no choice to accept? (sorry if an obvious question!)

 

Is there anything I should/shouldn't say in a letter in response?

 

Thanks again.

£1PCM is fine.

ok, letter received at the weekend from the lovely BC basically asking me to complete an 'official Financial Statement form', and they they "cannot consider my circumstances unless this properly completed form is returned to us within SEVEN days."

 

I have read previously that this is option but what is peoples advice as the best way to deal with this?

 

Thanks in advance.

Hi there

 

Personally I would not send them a financial statement. Their "official Financial Statement form" is just a load of wally. So is their statement about considering your circumstances. Your circumstances are nothing to do with them.

 

As dx says, pay them something even if its only £1 PCM. They can't have what you aint got.

 

And read the blog he mentions too

You can design your own Financial Statement or even use the one below provided by Ellen of the site team. As long as you sign it then you do NOT have to complete theirs. Do not identify your other creditors by name.. just put something like "Personal Loan", Credit Card 1, 2....

 

You do NOT have to provide bank statements, utility bills, wage slips, benefit advice notes.. .

 

When signing the statement, make your signature slightly different to that normally used or sign over a grid of "xxxx"
