    • I was wondering if someone can help? I received 2 county court claims the same day today. 1 from 2014 and 1 from 2015. I actually cannot remember as it was so long ago. What shall I do? Any advice would be grateful 
    • My son and his colleague's who work for Police Scotland had to attend and disperse 20 odd folk having a house party in edinburgh. Most of them drugged up, total moron's.
    • Whilst I don't always agree with his politics, I wouldn't wish this on anyone.
    • Quick update.   I haven't heard anything from court yet, still assume the notice of allocation should be next together with a request for me to pay £170 hearing fee, but that's just my guess   Trying to give me a heart attack, my insurance Halifax sent me a letter on Saturday, saying the claim from December 2019 has now been settled in full and recorded as me being at fault. But my insurance premiums would not change. And that was about it.   When I called them they said I should call the underwriters for further information, which in this case is LV. Got hold of LV claims today and they said the case has not been settled and is ongoing as it is disputed. They said they have no idea where Halifax got the information from that it was settled. They haven't made any payment yet and the matter is ongoing.   So phoned Halifax back and spoke to someone else. They then told me the wording of their letter was wrong and it should have said it was settled with me NOT being at fault hence no change to my insurance premiums. I told them that was also not quite right, as the underwriters say the case is still open and ongoing and it is not settled at all. The lady at Halifax then said it didn't matter really, as it made no difference to me as my premiums are not affected and if there is anything else to do the underwriters would surely let them know, so they were not interested to talk to LV or change anything in their system.   So at present the Halifax shows this as settled with me not being at fault, the underwriters LV show it as not settled, still in progress and disputed.   As these were only telephone calls I have sent a letter to the Halifax today with a summary of my telephone conversation with them advising them of what the underwriters have told me and what was generally discussed over the phone.   Had quite an interesting conversation with the Underwriters though. They said it is very common for the police not to do a collision report. They have that all the time, irrespective of how many cars are involved. If nobody got seriously injured they will do away with a report. Apparently it's common practice nowadays.Well, learned something there, but I guess they deal with these things every day.          
    • Whilst I appreciate the post office is working incredibly hard.. I hope they manage to get those masks to where they need to go and fast !.    My Postman's wife, who is a District Nurse has been confirmed as having Covid 19, so sadly as he now has to be isolated.. there is going to be one less postman to help deliver these.

Hi there,

 

After the help from the caggers sorting out some of my own issues I thought I would seek advice for a friend...

 

She moved into a council house with her partner approx four years ago, the tenancy is in her name....at some point they switched power suppliers to Npower and the account was in her partners name...the electric was on a meter so no issues there, but the gas was on a quarterly bill, un be-known to my friend her partner was not paying the gas bill, and it wasn't until she split from him and she received a letter from Npower was she aware of the problem, she has since switched her electric supplier for a better offer and despite trying to explain the situation to Npower they are refusing to listen and demanding the money from her, she has just been offered a payment gas meter from them, but as i'm sure you are aware they will no doubt take more than she can afford and with young children in the house, heating could become a problem for her...just wondered where she stands?? is the debt hers as the tenancy is in her name or with her ex??

 

what steps should she take to get this resolved??

 

cheers

Hi how has the communications been conducted-by phone or in writing ?

I suggest that your friend puts something in writing and demands a reply -dont deal by phone.

she has been in communication by phone, and thoroughly explained the situation, although sympathetic they say she is liable as the tenancy was in her name, she really wants to avoid a meter to pay back the debt, so is going to set up an affordable direct debit i believe, however they want her to send a copy of the tenancy so they can transfer the bill and account to her name.

Ok so keep everything in writing with a paper trail.

They are obliged to offer a prepayment meter before can disconnect.

If you are wanting to set up a DD plan make sure its at a figure that can be maintained.
