    • I think that rather than right, you should first of all telephone. However read our customer services guide. Implement the advice there. Then telephone and have a conversation which leads round to the loan and whatever agreement there might have been to repay. Get it recorded. Then write to him and asked him to confirm the telephone conversation. If he confirms it then you are on your way. If he doesn't confirm it or denies it then it becomes even more interesting and I think that you will properly have you more leverage. You say that you believe that you lent the money to the company and that the company has now sold. As long as the company has been sold and not dissolved then the loan to the company is still current and the company debt to you is still current. I think the first senior to do is to get the evidence – and I think you should follow the advice that I have given. The fact that the person has stopped contacting you is extremely troubling. The fact that the company ownership was transferred is even more troubling and so I think that you are dealing with somebody who is trying to be slippery about this – and so your way forward is clearly that you also have to act it in a slippery way. Come back here when you got the evidence and we will help you to the next step
    • Met usually use ANPR and get the timings massively wrong so they will be timed out. they must have used CCTV to watch the vehicle occupants "leave" and this is probably a breach of the GDPR as it wont be one of the specified reasons on their licence to spy on people so will breach protocols 1, 2 , 3 and possibly others in the list of the 8 main protocols of data protection.   It also breached the POFA as the timings are wrong so no keeper liability anyway.   The wording they use refers to the liklihood of the issuing of a NTD and thet never happened so the 56 day limit isnt applicable. My advice? ignore them as they rarely do court because they know they are incompetent
    • sorry, I meant to say UNLESS  so yes my answer reads the wrong way round
    • the terms in the contract will in many cases be unfair and thus you will be entitled to the bonus and there is case law on this. However, it is not a simple matter to resolve as it will have to take into account what the contract says and what the normal practice and expectations are for the bonus scheme. For example, Jhn Lewis pays out to anyone employed there on the relevant date so leave the day before and you lose out becasue it is a partnership and you would no longer be a partner. No schemes that withold bonuses until a certain time of the year MAY have to pay out but if your bonus is for the quarter that your resignation fell in then probably not. If it was for say Oct-Dec then you will ahve fulfilled the requirements of a qualifying period regardless of the contract saying no bonus and would more than likely be successful in a claim to recover such monies. A scheme that has been running for soem time would be part of yoru contract even if there is nothing specific included in your paperwork as it becomes implied as part of the conditions you agreed to when joining to co and staying there.   i know this doesnt give you a definite answer but hopefully makes it a little easier to see how your situation may work out
    • You have a big problem and that is proving the debt. for a debt to be created there must be an agreement that the money will be repaid, how and in what time frame. As far as the law goes you either gifted the money or loaned it in a way where you cant take civil action to recover it because there are no explicit terms. Now the BUSINESS doe owe you £2k and the debt will have passed on to the new owners but you still cant take steps to recover the money other than to ask the new business owners for it. They may deny the debt and you will be impossibly placed to prove it because there is nothing in writing. Proof of money transfer doesnt prove the debt exists nor how it should be repaid even if it did. you will lose a court claim due to the lack of paperwork showing how and when the repayment should take place. Sorry for your predicament but you are where you are

My niece has a debt of £350 to npower hich she acknowledges. its for a utility bill which she fell behind on. She had an arrangement to pay at x amount per month but simply could not afford it and now npower has had BCW send a letter and add charges to her account.

 

They are threatening more charges and the installation of a pre-pay meter which is not possible as her gas meter is in a cupboard owned by a neighbour who would kill anyone who touched her property.

 

I advised my niece that she should contact npower (not BCW) and tell them that she will pay all future bills on time, but the arrears must be reduced to a more agreeable amount (currently £50 per month) I was thinking more along the lines of £5 seeing as though she is on benefits and has a small child.

 

Either that or allow npower to take her to court, who will no doubt agree to her paying £1 a month.

 

They are also threatening doorstep visits, but I have already printed off the template letter regarding this, and thats ready to be sent.

 

However, I also wanted to seek advice here before she does or sends anything.

 

Thanks

Hi

 

If your niece is dependant upon benefits, she may like to consider the fuel direct scheme? NPower will agree a weekly figure to cover future energy use, and deduct a further £3.50 per week for any accrued debt directly from her benefit payments. All action will cease, and no pre-payment meter will be fitted.

 

Direct Gov - Fuel Direct

Hi Lefty,

 

Thanks for the response.

 

Is the £3.50 a statutory amount or could they ask for more?

Yep, I'm 99.9% sure that is the statutory amount... (Infact, I think it's only £3.40...)

 

It's a really good scheme, and I know of a few people who have used it.

 

Cheers

Lefty
