    • Wouldn't it be simpler not to bother with an Employment Tribunal?  Your wife leaves on 31 July and then you sue them in the small claims court for wages ( plus any filing fees ) from 01 August to the leaving date she originally wanted.   I see this as a simple money claim, not an employment issue.  They might not even defend it.
    • Hi all,   Looking for a bit of advice if possible.    Short overview: - Had a Vanquis debt for 2k from 2010 which up until 2016 i was paying amongst others via debt management company. I cancelled my debt management plan to tackle the debts myself which was effective all except Vanquis from whom i had no contact from until 2 months ago when the debt was sold to Lowell. I sent off a CCA request to Lowell and they sent me a Digital Signature Application which is the same format as the one i have posted below. They also sent a set of Terms and Conditions, which had not date on them APR rate etc. To get this matter cleared up i offered a settlement figure of £500 which of course they refused, and sent me a counter offer with a 20% discount. This is as far as i have got with them to date, i did not respond to counter offer and am awaiting their next move.   I had the default that Lowell put on  my credit file regarding the above account, removed by Experian. I wrote to Experian and said that Lowell could not prove the debt was mine and that was all i wrote. A  correction was put on my credit report and the default from Lowell removed, the correction has now dropped off along with the default. As far as i am aware Experian would of contacted Lowell with my dispute and Experian could only remove the default from my credit file with the lenders permission.   I quote from Experian website "If the lender realises their data was incorrect, your report will be updated to reflect this. Note that we can’t change or remove a default on your report without the lender’s permission. However, we’ll do everything we can to help you sort out a dispute."    My question really is, do i have any leverage with Lowell? I would like to settle the debt but do not want to have to pay these bottom feeders any more than i have too. Does the fact that the default being removed from my credit file mean they can not prove the debt  if i was  to take it as far as court? What i am hoping for is to get a low low settlement offer from them so i can clear the debt and move on.   Any help or advice, points of view would be greatly appreciated.
    • I don't understand why your insurers will only pay for part of the damage caused by the lorry.  Do they think some of this damage was pre-existing or just general maintenance or something?  I presume you've asked them why.   Also, why are you so keen to have a cash settlement and why are you so worried about whether BRS will pay the builder?  If they don't pay him, he can sue them.  It's got nothing to do with you.
    • I can't click the 'click me' link. I've managed to delete all personal info, but the file is 6.5mb as they put 7 letters into one file and I can't delete any pages. I moved house so will not have received most of the letters.  Just looking at the dates it looks like they may have confused the issue date and the date of the offence etc in the last three letters they sent, but it may just be wording. I will see if I can compress the file

    • Hi,  
      I was in Sainsbury’s today and did scan and shop.
      I arrived in after a busy day at work and immediately got distracted by the clothes.
       
      I put a few things in my trolley and then did a shop.
      I paid and was about to get into my car when the security guard stopped me and asked me to come back in.
       
      I did and they took me upstairs.
      I was mortified and said I forgot to scan the clothes and a conditioner, 5 items.
      I know its unacceptable but I was distracted and Initially hadn’t really planned to use scan and shop.
       
      No excuse.
      I offered to pay for the goods but the manager said it was too late.
      He looked at the CCTV and because I didn’t try to scan the items he was phoning the police.
       
      The cost of the items was about £40.
      I was crying at this point and told them I was a nurse, just coming from work and I could get struck off.
       
      They rang the police anyway and they came and issued me with a community resolution notice, which goes off my record in a year.
      I feel terrible. I have to declare this to my employer and NMC.
       
      They kept me in a room on my own with 4 staff and have banned me from all stores.
      The police said if I didn’t do the community order I would go to court and they would refer me to the PPS.
       
      I’m so stressed,
      can u appeal this or should I just accept it?
       
      Thanks for reading

Successful Section 75 Claim & Torts Act ... now I'm properly confused !!

Greetings,

I wonder of one or other of you knowledgeable persons could help by throwing some light on our situation.

 

We were advised by Santander on Friday that they had accepted and had started processing our Section 75 Claim

which we made in respect of a hot tub that we purchased some few months back.

 

Since the claim started, we have had no contact from the retailer.

 

The problem arises as there now appears to be a difference in opinion between Santander (credit card issuer)

and our home insurance company's legal department.

 

On the one hand Santander are advising that title to the hot tub remains with us after completion of the payment from them to us,

 

whilst the legal dept. over at Direct Line (home insurer's legal cover department) are advising that we are subject to the Torts Act, sections 12 & 13.

 

How do I find out which guidance is correct .

 

.. although I would suspect the the guys n gals over at Direct Line might be favourites here ??

 

Many thanks

If you have validly rejected the hot tub under SOGA in order to claim a full refund, then Direct Line are correct. The hot tub would then belong to the retailer and you would need to make it available for collection. I'm not sure there is any legislation that actually states this but it is clear from reported case law.

 

I suspect Direct Line are referring to http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/1977/32. There is a lot of legalese in there, but it basically allows you to sell the hot tub if the retailer refuses to collect by following the process set out in the Schedule to that Act. You'd still have to pass the sale proceeds to the retailer though.

Greetings,

Thanks for the response ... and it was more or less what we expected as we've already issued the company with a deadline for collection as per Section 12 & 13 of the Torts Act.
