Excellent news, lets hope they regret getting involved in this mucky business, it has without a doubt sullied the name of solicitors, so the SRA is doing the right things, lets hope Mr Andrew "I'm bankrupt but still got a massive house and a Bentley in the drive" Crossley is getting worried :)Andy

Have you ever passed a pub called 'The Honest Lawyer', or had a drink in one and wondered about the name?

....and another thing!!! as the OH says.

 

so the SRA is doing the right things, after 2 years of doing absolutely nothing while this [problem] ran on.

From my own experience with this self serving quango, unless you can catch a solicitor going over the back wall complete with striped jumper and a bag full of cash marked 'swag', you will get little interest.

 

I would not trust them with a push chair in the middle of a disused aerodrome.

In my case, I searched Google (sra, ******), the person investigating.

 

I wish I had an employer that alllows me to chat to my friends, book concert tickets etc, when they are supposed to be working for a living.

David be sensible when has anyone working for these so called

regulatory Quangos' ever done a real days work, to your advice

and had a look it really is astounding what they get away with.

It's the same though through any and every ''government''

agency ministry or what ever if the word government is

mentioned right down to the local councils all a ripping off

the tax paying public especially in England.

The SRA is part of the Law Society I believe!

The Law Society Represents Solicitors and promotes

good practice, training, publicity etc.

 

The SRA regulates and enforces legislation and the conduct

of the solicitors as individuasl or firms to put it simply

although it does go a lot further!

In reply to Cashins - we have the"The Honest Lawyer" pub in Lodge Road Southampton. The only consolation is that the pub a few doors down is "The Bent Brief"! That makes up for it!

I can only say that these lawyers should have been part of the FSB who would have advised them on their behaviour for free!

What can you say, the place was a falling down larf if you didn't take it seriously.

 

'82 would be a bit late for German Ede's down on East Park.

As a naive young squaddie it certainly opened my eyes to a world that I never knew existed., topless Go-Go dancers, strippers etc the lot. The crumpet in the place was unbelievable.

 

When it was my turn to get the round in I happened to mention to the barman that with all the tottie in there I couldn't understand that there was hardly any fellas but us squaddies. He just said "Put it this way, if you dance with any of them and put your hands were you shouldn't you'll grab a handful of more than you expect". Later that night one of the 'girls' got stabbed by a matelot when he grabbed more than he expected.

 

I only went in a couple of times after that & always in a group after we'd come across from Marchwood on the Hubbard lighter boat which acted as a water taxi for the camp.

A bit of history:

 

That area was pretty lively at night with other bars and a nightclub in nearby St Michael Sq. By then though, most of the 'working girls' had moved down to St Mary's. As with many town, refurbishment of the inner city areas brought respectability , rising property prices and complaints from the new residents regarding places like this. (Bit like moving near the airport then complaining about the noise). Upshot was it wasn't long before the rest followed the girls down to St Mary's.

TBH I didn't go across very often I preferred the local pub in Marchwood, the Mess or the surrounding villages. Sometimes we used to go to Hythe, Bucklers Hard or Lymington or across to the IoW. We had use of the Regimental yacht so besides working on the 'oggin we spent much of our leisure time on it as well. ;)

    • Received a demand notice for council tax today, demanding some payment by Monday!!! or I will lose my right to pay in installments etc...   I am dealing with arrears and was awaiting a bill from the council regarding this years council tax so I could renogotiate with the debt collectors.   But I didn't receive anything!   So I managed to speak to someone today by phone and email and they are both say they wont accept my offer of a 12 month payment structure UNLESS I SET UP A Direct Debit.   I'm (probably) going to set that up next week and (probably) going to pay them an installment this weekend, however I would like to know what rights I have with regards to this; if there are any possible laws I could pull out of somewhere that I could potentially use to write off my debt to the council for this year on grounds of something?   I have told them by email they are in no position to demand anything from me at this point, because I never received any letter asking for payment in the first instance (which I would assume legally negates any power they can exercise through the current final demand letter they just sent me). I told them either accept my offer (pending any further arrangment for payment) or I will assume that I owe them nothing for this year.   I can't prove I didn'r receive the letter though, but I honestly didn't. They can't prove I did receive it either.   So my question is (pending any further payments and negotiations) is there a nice little legal loophole I can use to get out of paying council tax for this year on the above grounds?   I guess not (probably) but worth a punt anyway.              
    • ok sorry I missed a bit so where are you at now. you've got the warrant stayed?
    • thanks for your help guys, not going to lie this is really stressing me out
    • uploads removed 1st page has your name
    • Thankyou Captain Obvious, I am well aware of this. However, unless I have the money to pay the charges in the first place then I'm not really in a position to claim anything back. Perhaps it's better if I challenge the system on all the above grounds I have highlighted instead. I am still waiting a response from the dental practise or the NHS about my advice to them to claim the costs back from the practise for substandard treatment.

    • This is a bit of a lengthy one but I’ll summerise best as possible.
       
      THIS IS HOW THE PHONECALL WENT 
       
      I was contacted by future comms by phone, they stated that they could beat any phone contract I have , (I am a limited company but just myself that needs a business phone and I am the only worker) 
      I told future comms my deal, £110 per month with a phone and a virtual landline, they confirmed that they could beat that, £90 per month with a phone , virtual landline  they also confirmed they would pay Vodafone (previous provider) the termination fee. As I am in business, naturally I was open to making a deal. So we proceeded. 
      Future comms then revealed that the contract would be with PLAN.COM and the airtime would be provided by 02, I instantly told them that this would break the deal as I have poor 02 signal in the house where I live as my partner is on 02 and constantly complaining about bad signal
      the salesman assured me he would send a signal booster box out with the phone so I would have perfect signal.
      so far so good.....
      i then explained this is the only mobile phone I use for business and pleasure, so therefore I didn’t want any disconnection time in the slightest between the switchover from Vodafone to 02
      the salesman then confirmed that the existing phone would only be disconnected once the new phone was switched on.
      so far so good....

    • The FSA has announced large fines against DB UK Bank Limited (trading as DB Mortgages) - DeutscheBank and also against Redstone for their unfair treatment of their customers.
      Please see the links below for summaries and full details from the FSA website.
      It is now completely clear that any arrears charges which exceed actual administrative costs are unfair and therefore unlawful.
      Furthemore, irresponsible lending practices are also unfair and unlawful.
      Additionally there are other unfair practices including unarranged counsellor visits - even if they have been attempted.
      You are entitled to refuse counsellor visits and not incur any charges.
      Any charges for counsellor visits must not seek to make profits. The cost of the visits must be passed on to you at cost price.
      We are hearing stories of people being charged for counsellor visits for which there is no evidence that they were even attempted.
      It is clear that some mortgage lenders are trying to cheat you out of your money.
      You should ascertain how much has been taken from you and claim it back. The chances of winning are better than 90%. It is highly likely that the lender will attempt to avoid court action and offer you back your money.
      However, you should ensure that you receive a proper rate of interest and this means that you should be seeking at least restitutionary damages - which would be much higher than the statutory 8%.
      Furthermore, you should assess whether the paying of demands for unlawful excessive charges has also out you further into arrears and if this has caused you further penalties in terms of extra interest or any other prejudice. This should be claimed as well.
      If excessive unlawful charges have resulted in your credit file being affected, then you should take this into account also when working out exactly what you want by way of remedy from the lender.
      You should consult others on these forums when considering any offer.
      You must not make any complaint through the Ombudsman. your time will be wasted, you will wait up to 2 yrs and there will be a minimal 8% award of interest and no account will be taken of any other damage you have suffered.
      You must make your complaint through the County Court for a rapid and effective remedy.
