    • Does anyone know if a person has the right  to use a lay representative in the family division of the county court? the wording of the Lay representatives(right of audience) order 1999 refers to a county court and stage 1 or tier 1 proceedings and Scots law have a form to fill out for such representation but it isnt clear whether the english system has such a clearly defined right of audience. The MoJ mentions it in some discussion papers as though it is hard and fast but in other documents  it is McKenzie Friends who are written about as if they are the only people allowed other than sols/barristers.   reason why lay rep needed is they can speak and the other side cant object where with McKenzie friend they cant speak on behalf of claimant/respondent and the other party can object to that person being present- which will happen  in this particular case. Ultimately it may well be a discretionary power of the judge but dont want to start off with a bad step.
    • It seems as though the solicitoras want to keep hold of this payday and will do anything to churn it ( make money by continuing an action that isnt in the clients interests). The land registry will have the record of who paid for the property and how so you will be in the clear on that as you didnt just take the place over, you bought it from the estate of the deceased. now it seems like your mother is struck by regrets/remorse over her inability to take over the property at the time and what tends to happen is that relatives will sit there and say bad things about the person who they see is the beneficiary of their misfortune and then get into a feedback loop, each reinforcing the wrong opinion of the other. Your attempts to sort things out logically ahs tempered this somewhat so do continue and keep clear of their  lawyers at all costs, they will just keep the meter ticking over and bring the negative thought back to the surface. your parents will already be about 2 grand a day down on anything the sols have done so try and get them to  look back to the mess that her father's death left them in and amke it clear that at least the house is still in the family and that she has benefitted from that by receiving money at the time that otherwise she wouldnt have got. If that still causes friction then I would still write to them rather than responding to the solicitor, the lesson they will learn will cost them less and when the sols have moved on to the next client they will have not lost so much of what they still have left. Ultimately if they do actually issue proceedings you can ask for the claim to be chucked out as having no merit etc by showing how the place was bought. I do struggle to believe that people dont know who their mortgage was with even after all of this time,  same as I find it odd that people suddenly find details for accounts with tens of thousands in that they had forgotten about. You can find out as again it will be in the Land registry entry for most properties that had a mortgage

    • no local courts can be very slow depending upon case loads.   as long as the org claimform had your correct and current address on it, it's just the above.
    • I've just checked and the status is   "Your claim was transferred to BIRMINGHAM on 14/11/2019"   The last I've heard is the phonemail from mediation. No mail received. Should I be worried about this?

A free service which helps people locate pension pots they have lost track of will triple its number of staff to meet record numbers of enquiries, ahead of the radical new changes to the pensions system that will come in on 6 April.

 

The Pension Tracing Service helps people to find providers of pensions they have lost contact with, often after switching jobs.

 

Do watch out for rogue companies. There are a number of official looking firms springing up who promise to trace pensions for a fee – steer clear of these as you do not need to pay for the government run pension tracing service.

Can you post up that page of the forum, Surfer? I can't get to it without entering all my details.

 

Have you really lost all of your previous pensions?

Actually not for myself but for the wife.

 

 

Over the past 20 years she has worked in various jobs and paid into a pension plus we have moved home in that time.

 

 

The problem is that you work with a company and pay into the pension scheme and then halfway through they change to another provider,

however if you have taken extra bonus option which is again a separate payment the extra stays with the original pension company and then it gets confusing.

 

The big issue is if trying to transfer a pension from one job to another job you lose out a lot so it is better just to leave it where it is.

 

 

We have managed to trace 4 pension companies but believe there may be some still outstanding although they are probably small amounts.

The link in post #1 goes to the front page of the form.

 

I've put in my details and got through to the next page now.

If you look at the bottom of the page I screenprinted, at the bottom is a box that says 'Trace another pension.'

 

OH has dealt with these forms at work and suggests you file one enquiry per employer. If you enter the start and finish dates of your wife's employment, they should check any schemes they had while she was there.
