    • Thanks, @FTMDave for your feedback, I will take your points on board. I was using the title "Mitigation" in an attempt to convey how reasonably I have behaved, and how stubborn and overzealous (i.e. unreasonable) the claimant and their solicitors are. Any suggestions for a more appropriate title ? Cheers --skeet23
    • Hi guys   4 old debts (catalogues) have been sold to Lowells, I requested copies of credit agreements and received them this week.  I also received a notice of assignment from them for an old Vanquis account.  I need to pay these debts off but don't want them touching my bank account so was thinking of setting up a standing order.  I guess I will have to send them details of income and expenditure.  My question is, do I need to give my husband's details?  We are not really getting on at the minute and this will be the last straw for him so I would rather just leave him out of this.   Many thanks for reading x
    • I am unable to get credit of any description, apart from a payday loan with expensive Provident.   I have 3 accounts, 2 with Capital One, the other with Vanquish.   These 3 do show late repayments, but Capital One is showing partically settled in September 2018 and Vanquis settled in full in December 2016.   The main issue I had is with NewDay Ltd.   I notified NewDay that my disability living allowance was stopped after I had my review when I went to transfer over to PIP.   NewDay were sympathetic, and agreed to place my account on hold, freezing interest and payments etc etc.   On the 4th May 2018, I received a letter from NewDay; theyagreed that due to my financial issues, they would no longer chase me for payment.   Soon after, a default was issued with with credit reference agencies that the account default with a default date of 12th June 108.   Why then agree to not chase me for payment then issue me with a default seems to me to be grossly unfair!?   I did a Notice of Correction on my credit file to show lenders that my account was on hold, and they agreed not to chase me for payment.   Can anyone please give me some advice?   I have a good income of £1100 a month in benefits income, and I state on applications I am retired.   I am initially accepted for credit, but they then go to the CRA's, I am then declined.   Its frustrating I can only get a loan with Provident.
    • Sorry, I don't think I explain my case correctly. I'm the guarantor for a friend that rented a shop. My friend couldn't make rent repayment and the landlord terminated her contract. Now the landlord (claimants) has taken out the claim against me as I was the guarantor and is responsible for my friend's debt. When I first  became the guarantor, I signed an agreement with the claimants. ( 1st agreement) A year later I had a meeting with the landlord to discuss my debt situation and told them I was struggling to make repayment. They agreed to give me a debt deduction and other terms, so a new agreement was drawn up (agreement 2). to replace the 1st agreement.   In 2016 I received a warning letter for late repayment. No further warning letter or contact has been made by the claimant since 2016 so I was shocked when I received the money claim.  Claimants have only attached the 1st agreement with their claim form and they denied there was a 2nd agreement. Now they have submitted their final witness statement and attached the 1st and 2nd agreement. Proving the 2nd agreement does exist.   My question is; 1. How important is it that no letter before action was sent before I received the money claim? 2. Now there's proof of a 2nd agreement which was signed and dated after the 1st agreement. Does it prove that the 1st agreement is invalid? 3. Would the court dismiss this claim if they believe the claimants have submitted an invalid agreement for their money claim?    Thank you. 
    • Hi   What date did they move into the Property & when did the Tenancy end?   How long was the initial Tenancy Agreement for?   Did you pay a Deposit/Holding Deposit for the Property?   Exactly what Notice of Arrears was given and when(what date)? (if for rent arrears)   Are they still in the Property or have they ended their Tenancy as per the Notice requirement to end that tenancy?   Is the Claim for Rent Arrears/Damages etc.?   Have you sent a Subject Access Request (SAR) which is free(due to GDPR) to the Landlord/Letting Agent asking for 'ALL DATA'?

I am worried about what my husband proposing to do to save going to dentist and wondered if any other Caggers tried this and if they had any success?

 

We are both on a low household income and unable to afford dentists or even know of any decent ones as the NHS ones we saw over the last few years been not a lot of good and one of them even burnt my husbands mouth with the drill handle getting to hot so as well as not having any money we don't even know of any we can trust or feel confident about

 

My husband has a crown coming loose and he is thinking about using some super glue to glue it back in when it does come outHe is very sensible man and know what he is doing and used to using glue so hopefully will be able to glue it back in alright but wondered if anyone else had done this to save money and avoid expense and hassle of finding a decent dentist and if it was successful ? Though I know it would not be recommended

Hello there.

 

I don't know much about this but I would have thought dentists used special glues? I would advise great caution until you understand what you're doing.

No idea whether Superglue is toxic, although i recall rumours that it was originally invented to stick skin/wounds together (although think I got that from the film, Dog Soldiers !).

superglue is not waterproof and will eventually breakdown.

under the compress/uncompress of chewing

 

also, by name its Cyanoacrylate

 

a by-product if heated is cyanide!!

There are several crown repair kits available to buy over the counter - Boots stock one and it's supposed to be a temporary repair until you can get to a dentist but a friend of mine had used it and it lasted for quite some time.

I've just asked my friend what he used - it's called Dentek dental first aid kit from Boots £7.50 (ish) contains a paste you mix to secure the crown.

yes myabe one idea for me to do is google and try and find out more about the special glues these dentists use! As they must be safe if used by dentists! would be lovely if i could locate the special glue proper dentists use!

Thanks for sugestion ell enn But both me and have tried this product and similat products to try and cement crowns fix fillings butfound that we did not get on well with them and they did not last long!

 

I have got several broken teeth at back and lost one of my crowns as tooth decayed underneath it but luckily all my teeth being back teeth and crown at back too it been not so bad for me as they do not show or stop me biting on food. so i given up for myself but my poor OH has several front teeth capped

I must admit i do hate the idea of my OH using it and sounds scary

 

,I did tell him about your post but he so desperate he wants to still try it and i suppose the glue will not get very hot in his mouth and stay where it is until crown comes of again

 

.That is hopeing this will happen and do no harm. but i do hope i can find something better and so grateful for every ones suggestions and wouldm be so grateful for any furthur ideas or names of glues dentists do use

 

As like you say dont really want him putting something like super glue in his mouth but he is deserate to try anything rather than go to dentist

I wouldn't use Superglue as it may not only be toxic, it could also burn the inside of your mouth!

 

There is a product call 'Refit' which I have used, it's available from some chemists but none of the large chains stock it, at least not in my area, but can sometimes be found in smaller independent chemists. Failing that, it's available online, as it happens I've just ordered some yesterday. Don't think I'm allowed to post a link here but you can ask your local chemist or do a search. The product is made especially for cementing lost crowns and suchlike and costs around £4. Not cheap but it has 3 capsules of the powder you mix with water.

 

Hope you find it and it helps!

 

Thanks egmatic I Will have to look up about Refit! Will be lovely if it works as a long term solution .

Hiya, I know you asked what others thought about your OH's plan with the glue, and i have to say i

 

have tried all sorts in the past, between all us, ive tried the super glue thing myself ,(dont tell him) it's

 

dangerous and a rubbish idea, (I had major soft tissue probs, you can tell him that)

 

others caggers have warned you , it wont work. Being genuinely caught in the too poor to pay but

 

not rich enough to manage is awful when your in pain. Have you tried your local university that train

 

dentists. It's a highly specialisted course and they'd be supervised while treating someone. Lets face it,

 

your not asking for root canal treatment. Someone may be more knowledgable than me in this field

 

may give you better advice, but at end of day, all advice is re:- temp measures, eventually something is

 

going to have to be done. A lot of dentists see it as cosmetic ( which it is, until theres a prob, and

 

your left with a ground down tooth and a nerve bearing root) I hope you get him sorted, OH's in pain

 

can really affected your mental wellbeing after a while, it may possibly be good murder defence, but obviously the crimnal experts would have to advise you futher:lol:

Don't do superglue. :oops: I've got a crown held in by something called "ToofyPegs" (you can get it on Amazon), and it's been there for months despite being at the front of my mouth. Nothing seems to budge it. It costs about 4 or 5 quid, and it will save your hubby having to explain to A&E how come he's glued his teeth to his cheek. :oops:

Thankyou for suggestion LaughingGirl!

I found Toofypeg on Amazon and have just ordered some.

It did have a lot of good reviews on Amazon as well ! So i told my hubby about your good experiences of it and he has agreed to try some :-) Thank goodness!

So now fingers crossed that he has the same sucess that you and numerous other reviewers on Amazon had with it!

It was very heartening and reassuring to find so many good reviews about it:-)

After I ordered toofypegs on Amazon! I noticed it sold Refit as well! So at least I know where to get various things mentioned on this thread to hopefully keep hubby away from super glue

I just thought I would add to the discussion: Something similar happend to me in 2012 so I called up an emergency dentist and they dealt with it. As long as you have some sort of benefits you will qualify for free treatment. If you dont then you may qualify for a fixed price treatment that isn't too expensive, not sure. Hope you got this sorted out worried sick. I have never understood why we can't just have the Dr see to ALL ailments as a vet does an animal?
