    • Unfortunately paying the £185 is the least worst option..   You could apply for a set aside, but not only does it cost more at £255 but you also have to give the judge a reason why you didn't file your defence when you were supposed to.   You could just not pay, but that would lead to six years of a trashed credit file.   Best to take it on the chin and be ready if the same thing ever happens again, when it will be essential to read what is written on the court form and respect any deadlines the court sets (something dx repeated upthread). 
    • I'm going to say once again I think that you are fortunate that they didn't refuse to cover you at all. Normally insurers are looking for a way out and I think they could have been much more heavy-handed with you. I would advise you to take the money and then if you want to pursue the third party will help you. The great thing is that if you take the money from the insurer then you are left with a relatively small sum which doesn't put you at risk if you decide to bring a small claim – and if liability has been fully admitted then I don't really see that you can lose. I'm sure that the other side will bring the reduction of your insurance cover into issue – but I don't see that it is relevant to the question of their liability. Otherwise you're going to get into very complicated ground about the assessment of your failure to keep the insurer informed about your speeding convictions. I'm sorry to say but I think that it is absolutely clear that these things have to be mentioned to an insurer and it is absolutely clear that the insurer would have charged you a greater premium – or even possibly have refused to insure you. Do you have any other convictions which the insurer has been made aware of? Or did you have a completely clean licence before these two speeding offences
    • Nope not worth mentioning. Paying them Even 1 penny will let them sink their claws int him for the next 6 years. Don’t fall for their fake threats.
    • Hi @Mwynci The UW threw this into the mix yesterday.    As @BankFodder mentions above they are making a meal of this, given they will be claiming back from the third parties insurer anyway given its a Fully Comprehensive Insurance.  That said they have advised this morning that they need to prove to the TPI that I've been fully indemnified and this plays heavily on the basis I've made a 'careless misrepresentation'. My view is its an oversight on the basis the contract was auto re-newed.    As stated, non fault accident, full liability accepted by third party and police log confirms this, following attendance at the scene so no dispute. Surely my insurer has no liability.

    • 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

My terminally I'll father needs 24 hour care. We want him to move in with us but our house is too small (2 children, 2 bed house) We are both with housing association new charter, is there any way we can get the ball rolling as we need this to be able to care and comfort our Father the best way possible.

Very sorry to hear of your Father's poor health :(

 

I think you are going to be hard pushed here, it is likely that the Housing Association will look at the time your Father has left - if as I am assuming you are looking to move to a larger property to have your Father move in with you so you can care for him !

 

Does your father have a Social Care Plan in place ? Would they be able to speak to the Housing Association on your behalf, do you think ?

Hi Ragnbone

 

I am sorry to hear your news.

 

Where is your Father staying at present? (Are they a Tenant or own there own property?)

 

To be moved by your HA it would have to be through Medical Needs (if your Father isn't a Tenant it may be more difficult) as citizenB has pointed out in post#2.

 

It is going to take you getting as much medical evidence letters of those looking after your Father, remember they would need to put in the letter the specific medical reason for requesting such a move, size property needs to be, whether ground floor bedroom needed etc. (letter to HA are always better from Hospital Consultants as they hold more weight, Occupational therapy, Social Work etc).

 

Get as much medical backing in writing as possible, also ask your HA for the Medical Assessment form for moving property.

I have first hand experience dealing with mental health.

the last thing your farther will want is to put pressure on his grand kids or kids.

 

Putting alot of anxiety and stress on the family ill be part of a housing associations ethics responsibility.

 

Your initial request was for him to move in you and your family. but I agree postnm.

 

Its often hard to see poor mental help in people and those that have it learn to disguise it well.
