    • £3000* as your contribution (Excess) to the sum insured.   If you are on fully comp. you’ll get your repairs, their repairs (and costs) and have to contribute £3k*.   If you are on 3rd party (fire & theft) you’ll get their repairs (and costs) and have to contribute (£3k* AND all of your repair costs), [unless you don’t want your car repaired when you’ll just pay the £3k*]   * £3k if the total exceeds £3k, the total value of the claim if the claim doesn’t exceed £3k : why it  is important to find out the value of their claim and if their claim is appropriate or inflated.
    • I think you're conflating the discussion with your own view of what open borders means.  Obviously I don't think it's sensible to allow people to come to the country and claim whatever they can - They can't even do that now.  If they have a job, and are able to support themselves then that is what I would say is fair enough.  The real issue with selecting who comes to the country is that you can't devise a system that selects people fairly, and it would need some human intervention down the line.  How do you decide who is of benefit to the country etc.. I think if we go down that route, that is where I feel uncomfortable.  Even if we adopted an Australian points based system it wouldn't reduce immigration, and the hole notion of only allowing people that earn above a certain sum of money to come to the country is plain silly - As if the amount of money someone earns is the mark of their character.  And as we know, we rely heavily on low skilled seasonal labour.     Your point is moot because our low skilled workforce have no reason to move to another country unless the standard of living is equal or better to ours.  I did read the other day though that the UK provides the greatest number of immigrants from any other country to Australia.   I would suggest that the foreign aid everyone likes to grumble at is a way to improve living standards in other countries.
    • I dont care what race, colour, creed, sexuality or personal religious beliefs anyone holds and just like I dont believe anyone should be penalised in any way for their purely personal choices and beliefs, neither do I believe they should expect or be given benefit or preference over any others based on them.   Real non-discrimination in my opinion.   If a person is a benefit to our society - I don't care about their purely personal choices. If a person is not a benefit to our society - I dont care about their purely personal choices.   ... and that certainly is not anything approaching Nazi-ism in my opinion. Sounds more like real world socialism to me than most self-proclaiming socialists I hear and see.     Are people who make 'profit' - all 'bad' - are they heck as like Are people who say we should give everything away to those more 'needy' - all 'good' - are they heck as like and in the vast majority of those cases most are nether of the extremes of 'good' or 'bad',   .. although it is arguable that those who consciously make a personal choice give away all their personal belongings other than perhaps the absolute minimum they NEED - to those more needy ... are 'saints' - if their personal choices accept that, and whether officially acknowledged or not.     I agree it would be great if the world was at peace with itself and everyone, and no-one went hungry or feared for their childrens futures, and there was no greed, or fear or hate or even want - but this is the real world, and we have to deal with it in real ways.   Not even Star Treks federation is close, let alone the reality we need to deal with.
    • This will be won’t pay more.  The Ex-husband got his ex-wife to go to mediation to sort out the financial side because they own property together.  The ex-wife did not like what she heard from the mediator and would not cooperate. So they wasted 3 visits. Afterwards she arranged another mediation meeting but just for herself without the ex-husband involved and paid over £120 to tell the mediation service how shit she thought they were. Then told the ex-husband what she had done.     Now here’s a new bit of information at the moment the ex’s have one of their houses up for sale, can my sister put a lean on the house?  If yes, how does she put the lean only on the ex-wife’s part of the money
    • I have had to fill in a declaration a few times. southern Water are the worst performing Water provider in the UK. They have even been investigated by the Serious Fraud Office.    I have no doubts there will be many vulnerable Southern Water customers with similar issues who are not aware there Watersure Tariff has been wrongfully  removed.   The culture within Southern Water as I have experienced lacks transparency. The Customer Service Manager used language that removed all blame from Southern Water. Instead of saying they would accurately re bill me he said he would look into the overpayments Inhabe been making!!

Hi,

 

 

We applied to Halifax to get a new deal on our mortgage,

long story short they're being typical bankers.

 

 

They've given our home address to Santander who in turn have stuck my other half with a business account debt

that he shared with his brother years ago.

 

 

His brother has been through bankruptcy and sufficient years have passed that it no longer affects his credit.

 

 

I can't bankrupt my hubbie over the head of a joint debt as we'll lose our house but there's no way we can pay this.

 

 

I have no intention of dancing with "Hoist Portfolio Holding 2 Limited", nor " Robinson Way Limited",

the company charged with managing the debt as he signed no contract with them.

 

Can anyone advise exactly where he stands with this debt? Does it legally become his when the other named acc holder becomes bankrupt? Tbh his brother done all of the spending on the account but all paperwork lies with his solicitor from the bankruptcy case.

 

1 more side issue, our mortgage advisor has a loose tongue and I've found myself getting into a taxi with his driver brother and him fit to tell me every step of our negotiations. What can I do about this?? I'm not happy at all.

How old is this debt? Can we have some detailed history please?

Hi DonkeyB,

I'm vague on exact details, as the other named holder has destroyed all the paperwork.

 

 

The debt is over 7 years old now and no paperwork (statements etc) were ever sent to our home address until now.

 

 

They had a joint business account with Santander that they used for a time until his brother fell ill.

 

 

He had to file for bankruptcy because of it, lost his house etc.

 

 

By the time of his bankruptcy my hubbie was working for another company.

 

 

He was not involved in the bankruptcy at all, didn't sign anything related to it.

 

 

Apologies for the lack of details here but trying to get sense out of either of them is impossible.

 

 

I only want to know if he is legally obliged to shoulder the entire debt??

 

 

It doesn't seem fair.

Sadly, fairness isn’t always at the root of the answer.

 

Your husband may not have been in touch with anyone for seven years, but if his brother has in any way acknowledged this debt within the last six years, it may not be statute barred.

 

This will depend on whether they were joint and severally liable for the debt, which is more likely than not.

 

You’d have to find out if the debt was actually included in the brother’s bankruptcy – if so, and the whole amount was included, that might kill it dead.

 

You really need to try and find out more information – a subject access request to the original bank might be useful.

 

Hoist have bought the account from Santander, so whether or not an agreement has been signed with them is irrelevant. What correspondence have Hoist/RW sent to you? How have they worded their demands?

 

When do they say they bought the account? Tell us all you can.

 

As for your IFA – he should not be disclosing your personal data to anyone. You can complain to the FCA and ICO, but your difficulty is having proof. Perhaps a sneaky recorded phone call to the IFA, making a verbal complaint, and getting him to in some way confirm what he has done...
