    • Hello  I'm dual executor in my mum's will with a brother. He basically has spent the two months since my mum passed arguing with everybody. Saying he has had enough. Hates us all. Blocked me contacting him for two weeks. I sorted my mum's funeral and paid for it. He just walked away from any responsibility. I started work on closing amenities etc. Sorting out paper work. We need to apply for probate. I realise I need his signature and agreement to move forward. I asked him directly what he wanted to do. He said he wanted to remain executor. I suggested he went and read up about what it meant.  So whilst he was sulking and off the scene. My uncle was letting himself into the house and rummaging. I can't prove anything but items remain misplaced at the moment. I decided to remove the family photos, stamp collection and jewellery and take it to my house for safe keeping. These things have been left for me in the will. They have great sentimental value to me. My brother is now back on the scene and is demanding I return them to the house as he didn't give permission. He has eventually agreed to the locks being changed and we are looking to increase the insurance to cover a unoccupied house with belongings in situ properly.  It bothers me greatly that firstly they are going to be left unattended and I also know that he wishes to secure some of the stamps himself. Regardless of them being left to me.  Am I legally in my right to refuse to return them or does everything in the house (regardless of what is written in the will) have to stay in situ till probate is awarded? Thank you so much for any advice.        
    • No idea. Look it up somewhere on the Internet – send a letter to the registered address and there may well be some email done at the bottom of their website page. Frankly doesn't really matter if they get it. The most important thing is that you have made a reasonable attempt to send something to contact details that they have provided. If their contact details don't work then that's up to them. You will find that they do magically start to respond once they receive the court papers.
    • Like Nobby_v I am no expert, but it the NTK appears to make no mention of POFA so I fail to see how they can claim any keeper liability. When was the parking event and when did you receive the letter?
    • Hi Dave   that absolutely rings a bell, thanks for that.   Do you think that ultimately they will have been left out of pocket by this episode? I’m guessing they would have had to pay a barrister 4.5 hours in total for their work alone?   It’s for some crumbs of comfort I am looking to take!

I joined my local gym back in Jan 2014 &


at the time I started to get a touch of Arthritis in my right knee,


around end of Feb / March the knee was causing me a lot of problems

& the pain was becoming unbearable so


I went to my GP who said I should stop going to the gym & take painkillers.


I never made the payment in time in March &


Harlands sent me a letter saying they were adding £50 to my £47 which I missed,


I phoned Harlands & said because of my knee I was leaving the gym

even though I signed for a 12 month contract,


I was told to send them a doctors letter which I did & Harlands

then wrote back saying they would not be cancelling my contract because at the time

I signed I had the Arthritis & that my arrears are now £137

which if I never paid in 14 days would incur further charges.


I phoned Harlands & told them that they are being unreasonable

as the Arthritis had gone from minor pain to severe pain since joining the gym

but all they wanted was their payment & was not interested in cancelling my membership.


I rang CAB who were not much help & then


I contacted the head office of the council run gym

who said they could not believe that Harlands would not cancel the membership due to my knee problem

& my GP letter confirming this &


the lady I spoke said she would look into this,


a couple of hours later she rang me back & said that she had spoken to Harlands

& they have agreed to cancel me contract & all charges wiped off.


If anyone has a problem with Harlands go direct to the head office of your gym

& complain about these people & hopefully these gyms will stop using companies

like Harlands who are only interested in collecting money with astronomical charges added.

If it doesnt come in the next few days, get back in touch with them and demand it in writing. harlands have been known to ignore the gym and try to harass you. How they think they have the authority to do that, when the gym has told them to cancel it, is beyond me.

Hi I8Harlands and welcome to CAG


Thanks for your telling us about your situation.


Harlands like to think they can boss people about but they really are powerless.


It would have been proper and reasonable to give the gym a month's notice and pay the March DD.


Even if the gym/council confirm in writing that the matter is resolved and you owe nothing, all is well.


But it really depends on exactly what the letter says. Let us know the content when it arrives.


In the meantime, ignore Harlands and their pet collection agent, CRS. They are one and the same company and they can do NOTHING.


Your advice may only work with a council-run set up. Most cases here are about gyms who are too happy to leave Harlands to resolve m/ship disputes.



We could do with some help from you
