    • Ok another update and its all rather confusing, ive been trying to work this out for hours now and I cannot make any sense from it all.   Apparently the meter was put in on the 1st of April, I was sure it was July. However what makes sense is that I gave a reading in August, which I thought was for the month but it was for the quarter. I must of written it down wrong for a monthly reading, when it should have been written down as a quarter reading. I may have wrote the date down wrong when to read the meter.  However I do know that I contacted bulb a week before the meter went in, that I am very sure of. Which would of been about the 27th, They have it registered that I gave a reading on the 29th of March. However they have an opening reading from the 12th of March.    Im confused with that date as I know I contacted them a few days before and they put the meter in as an emergency and was definitely done the following week. Despite my memory being shot at the moment I do have some dates written down and the date of the change is on my meter. However its a little hard to read, it does look like the 1st of the 4th but it can also look like the 1st of the 7th. I was with 2 previous companies so July would make better sense. I moved into the property mid January, EON was the provider and I changed that within the first month so would have been February, then I went with OVO and changed them as they couldnt provide the normal meter for about 6 months at the time so changed to Scottish power. I know I was with them for at least a month before I contacted Bulb as they also couldnt change the meter to a credit meter.    So April doesnt seem to fit here. Im still trying to find any paperwork I might have to verify all this but I know everything was done via phone and online. I wish everything went back to paper bills, it was so much easier to try and trace back.    Anyway they have done a closing account for the prepayment and im a little confused at this.   The charges from the 12th of March 2019 to the 4th of April 2019 are £376.91.     Now I know that there is no way I put this amount in the prepayment meter. I had no heating on in that month, I remember it was such a mild Spring and I rarely had any heating on as this bungalow is very well insulated. The most I topped up in just one week was £25. So how they can justify that amount, I cant even guess.    Im worried they will use this amount to estimate my usage. I still cant get to read my meter, even if I stand on a ladder as its so high up and it just looks like a bunch of zeros, Ive even taken a photo but it still looks like a bunch of zeros, even when blown up. It was hard to balance on a step ladder as it was with one hand trying to take a photo, so not the best.   Ive managed to get into a link they sent me, its a portal. The balance is showing nil owing. and there are no statements showing.    So basically all they have sent is a closing balance on the prepayment meter and log in details for a portal with zero balance. Ive requested the meter be read. Which I keep asking for, but my landlord will come and try read it for me so I can send it.  Im just worried when I do im going to get such a large bill I cant pay. These people just seem so elusive on what I should do despite asking these questions. The only answers im getting doesnt seem to make any sense.    I know its partly my fault, I should of kept at them, but its not been an easy couple of years. 
    • But they added £60 on top of the £100 before court costs Thanks though, how do i file a defence , do i do it by hand?
    • If the hire purchase agreement ends in your husband's name then it will be your husband who will have to bring any complaints, bring any legal proceedings – et cetera. Write to Blue Motor Finance in the way that I have suggested. Point out that you have asserted your rights under the consumer rights act to reject the vehicle and that is the end of the matter. Tell them to start making arrangements to refund your the money and tell them that you won't stand for any nonsense. If you have pointed out to them already tell them that there will be legal proceedings unless they sorted out extremely quickly. What have you done to get rid of the car? If you've got Blue Motor Finance's prevarication in an email that that is excellent and you will use that against them. This thread has already been tweeted out to them and they will see the tweet on Monday and they will understand that they are been discussed on social media – and that it doesn't look very good. I'm sorry to say that you have to keep the pressure on very hard. You expect this of these kind of car dealers. You don't expect it of a regulated finance company – but am afraid that some of the poorer ones do act like this all too often. You can certainly call them if you want. What you definitely want to see what a reference number and if you call them tell them that it is a complaint. You can also tell them that they are been discussed on social media. Please keep us updated. I'm afraid that this is unlikely to be the end of it.  
    • So got the official judgement  sealed on 15th June , but refers to handed down 9th June    doesn’t say when to pay by - is it 14 days of the 9th or 15th (to stop any enforcement) or 28 days from 15th or 9th to stop it appearing on credit file ?   also I’m hoping it’s the legal jargon -    bur says each defendant is to pay  £25,000 and interest £1644    I know I brought his up before , but it’s just legal jargon for each defendant is liable to pay for the £25,0”” and £1644    rhey don’t actually order us to pay 54,000 for a  25k claim ???!!

Hi,

 

I am awaiting a medical for ESA,I had help from a welfare benefits officer filling my form in,one of my conditions means I lose control of my bladder 5/6 times a month,she felt sure this would meet one of the descriptors and I would be unlikely to be called for a medical,does anyone know if this is true please?She also advised me to send a letter back with my form asking for the name and job title of the person who decided I needed a face to face asessment and the name of the doctor who would be carrying this out,despite sending a letter asking for this information and phoning Jobcentre Plus 3 times I have still not be given it,anything more I can do?should I continue phoning the Jobcentre for this info or would it be better getting in touch with Atos?Any advice would be appreciated.

You will definitely go for a medical even if you have no legs and arms, but if the form is filled out correctly it should not be too much of a problem.

Hi,

You were advised wrongly. Stating a loss of bladder control on the form does not exempt you from an assessment. Not having seen your form, but there are probably follow up questions that would need to be asked about amount of bladder emptying during loss of control, use of incontinence aids, lifestyle issues brought about by the bladder problems etc.

 

And that's just the bladder issue. Do you have other health issues? These also need to be assessed. If you don't get a pass due to a condition or treatment that confers automatic limited capability for work related activity, then certainly as a new claimant, you would be subject to a full assessment.

 

If you pass this assessment and are put in the support group with a condition that will not change long term, then dependant on the evidence offered on the next ESA50, there is a possibility you may not be called for assessment at that time.

 

The majority of first time claimants have to attend an assessment.

 

I'm also not sure what your adviser thinks will be acheived by asking for the names of those making these decisions in your case. If you had a condition that meant you should automatically get assessed as having limited capability for work related activity, or you have a condition such as major bilateral stroke requiring 24 hour care, then yes, a complaint about the person who made the wrong decision in putting you forward for the atos assessment would be warranted.

 

Assessments are also not necessarily carried out by doctors, but by a pool of 'health care professionals'. If you have a condition that requires specific expertise, then a specially trained professional can be requested for the assessment. Otherwise you get just a bog standard assessor. And trust me, it being a doctor doesn't make them any more likely to pass you. What are you planning on doing with the name and qualifications of the person assessing you if you're told in advance?
