    • I emigrated to australia permanently about a year and a half ago, but still have an overdraft of 2500 pounds with a bank in the UK. I am struggling to pay it off, and am being charged 1.75 a day for the overdraft. I have not informed the bank that I have moved to Australia.   Im wondering what is the best course of action. I do not intend to return to the UK and have no assets or family over there. I rang up a call centre for the bank and informed them of my situation and they suggested i ring the branch and speak to them. I intend to pay the debt off, but am not in a position to do so right now, and was hoping the bank might put a hold on the charges, whilst I can get the finances to pay them off.   alternatively, what would happen if I did not pay this debt off
    • is the property jointly owned and the all the CO's/debts are in your sole name?  
    • Oh dear I didn't know that about Word - thanks for the tip. I would be grateful for any other comments re the text. Thanks for getting me to this point. I now have a huge amount of info to plough thru to prepare for the next stage. Is there any guidance as to what happens next and how long that takes, or will that be made clear once the basic defence has been submitted? I haven't been able to find a clear explanation of the procedure anywhere.   
    • I have been tearing my hair out searching for information on the web. Finally (!!!) I came across this huge and exceptionally promising looking site. I learnt a while ago that some Agreements for credit cards under the CCA 1974 are unenforceable.   To cut a long story short, as they say, I am attempting to draw out funds from the equity in our property in order to secure natural treatments for my dear beloved wife. (The NHS have genuinely done all that they could, but their funds being limited, there isn't any hope that they can do any more). There are a myriad of Natural (proven) cures for my beloved wife.   Alas,  I discovered that there are three credit card charges on my property, going back many years. These cards were all started in the 1980's and early 1990's, and were all under the CCA 1974.   I offer my sincere apologies that I have not read through enough of the threads on this site, to be able to find the answer which  I am seeking. I am desperate to get things moving in order to get the funds for the treatment. I fear I might already have confused folk here.   So here goes:   Is there a quick-ish way to get the charges removed from my property, which were placed there after Court hearings at which I was 'advised' to just agree, as I was unable to repay, many years ago.   I read on another website that a form AP1 should be sent to the Land Registry, detailing that the Agreement is unenforceable so the charges should be removed. That sounded too simplistic so I moved on.   Naturally, I will be enormously grateful for any suggestions or guidance on this matter. I accept that I may have rambled on a bit, but folks, I   am frantically attempting to find a solution to remove the charges so that I can quickly utilise those funds to get treatment for my dear wife. Perhaps the answer is already here somewhere. If so, I would be grateful for anyone pointing me in that direction.   Thank you.

My wife and I went to the PC World/ Currys store in Brentford to look at purchasing a new dish washer, when she opened the door on one of the integrated appliances the fascia fell off on to her foot.

 

The first member of staff simply stated he wasn't qualified to deal with it and walked off with very little concern, the asst manager came over and looked vague as to how to deal with it having to be prompted for a duty first aider which he stated they don't have in store.

 

When asked for a cold compress he returned with a pack of frozen chips and was concerned about putting them into a Currys carrier bag rather than leave them in the sainsburys bag they were already in. The only help we were offered was in purchasing the dishwasher. He had no idea about an accident book or a HS1 form.

 

We complained to head office due to how it was dealt with and the acknowledgement they were aware the doors were falling off making them negligent in their duty of care. The store manager writes back stating that there was a first aider on duty but when asked why they were not called it was escalated to a Phillipe Sleet (DSG H&S) who stated the store manager was incorrect in his statement in having first aiders and they were in accordance with HSE risk assessments which were completed annually.

 

He has also stated that the store acted in accordance with risk assessments by removing such plinths as a means of rectification to the doors falling off. However he has so far refused to state when that appliance was risk assessed prior to going on the shop floor or when it was first evident that the standard display fascias do not fit safely.

 

They have consistently shown complete apathy towards this clear design fault even though the store staff have admitted they have a problem with the doors not fitting correctly. The concerning factor is this particular unit is sold throughout their network and fitted with the same standard display fascia. They have stated that where significant risks are identified they are recorded.

 

The concerning factor is that if it is heavy enough to cause injury to an adult it could pose a significant risk to injury to a child. DSG and especially Currys Brentford seem to prioritise their sales targets over injuries caused due to store negligence.

 

The only thing we wanted out of this was for them to look into the way risks are identified and handled, and to highlight that cutting corners does not resolve the problem, when they legally have a duty of care towards customers and staff.

 

Head office have shown complete apathy towards this and have now been told by DSG Risks Manager he LOOKS FORWARD TO HEARING FROM OUR SOLICITORS. A bizarre approach when we are not even looking for any recompense, just to make sure this type of incident does not happen again and cause someone a serious injury or worse.

Hi jacnpaul

 

Welcome to CAG

 

Was the incident logged in the accident book? If not it should have been. If Curry's aren't taking the matter seriously, from what you are saying, 'they just don't care'. If you've got any pics, you could send them to Trading Standards and Health & Safety Executive with your complaint.

 

It seems that Curry's are relying on their annual assessments, rather then carry out necessary Health & Safety checks when they've been made aware of problems. This could potentially cause serious harm to members of the public who visit their stores, as experienced by your wife.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/6173402/Laura-Ashley-fined-after-fireplace-collapses-on-toddler.html - All stores have a duty to conduct risk assessments and take measures to protect the public and employees.

 

One local store and been displaying tree felling axes and sledge hammers on flimsy metal shelves at knee height. No guards to stop items from falling off the shelves, and no protection of sharp edges. A small child running around would have been at risk of serious injury. My county council had a hand in the above Laura Ashley case and quickly dealt with the axes & hammers.

 

If Currys is showing a cavalier attitude towards safety, contact your local council and get them to escalate the issue.

I intend to take this as far as I can now to highlight the way DSG deals with risks and their failings in duty of care to customers.

 

Whilst the staffing levels may negate the requirement for a trained first aider on site

the legal minimum is an appointed person to take charge in such incidents.

 

This never happened and the asst manager had to be prompted on what to do proving

he was untrained to deal with incidents in store.

 

The annual risk assessments completed as stated by DSG H&S are in accordance with the law.

 

A statement that would be correct if nothing changes but we all know how often fisplay stock is changed.

 

This gives the impression that items can be on display having never been risk assessed in accordance with the law.

 

They refuse to comment on that one.
