    • Thanks, @FTMDave for your feedback, I will take your points on board. I was using the title "Mitigation" in an attempt to convey how reasonably I have behaved, and how stubborn and overzealous (i.e. unreasonable) the claimant and their solicitors are. Any suggestions for a more appropriate title ? Cheers --skeet23
    • Hi guys   4 old debts (catalogues) have been sold to Lowells, I requested copies of credit agreements and received them this week.  I also received a notice of assignment from them for an old Vanquis account.  I need to pay these debts off but don't want them touching my bank account so was thinking of setting up a standing order.  I guess I will have to send them details of income and expenditure.  My question is, do I need to give my husband's details?  We are not really getting on at the minute and this will be the last straw for him so I would rather just leave him out of this.   Many thanks for reading x
    • I am unable to get credit of any description, apart from a payday loan with expensive Provident.   I have 3 accounts, 2 with Capital One, the other with Vanquish.   These 3 do show late repayments, but Capital One is showing partically settled in September 2018 and Vanquis settled in full in December 2016.   The main issue I had is with NewDay Ltd.   I notified NewDay that my disability living allowance was stopped after I had my review when I went to transfer over to PIP.   NewDay were sympathetic, and agreed to place my account on hold, freezing interest and payments etc etc.   On the 4th May 2018, I received a letter from NewDay; theyagreed that due to my financial issues, they would no longer chase me for payment.   Soon after, a default was issued with with credit reference agencies that the account default with a default date of 12th June 108.   Why then agree to not chase me for payment then issue me with a default seems to me to be grossly unfair!?   I did a Notice of Correction on my credit file to show lenders that my account was on hold, and they agreed not to chase me for payment.   Can anyone please give me some advice?   I have a good income of £1100 a month in benefits income, and I state on applications I am retired.   I am initially accepted for credit, but they then go to the CRA's, I am then declined.   Its frustrating I can only get a loan with Provident.
    • Sorry, I don't think I explain my case correctly. I'm the guarantor for a friend that rented a shop. My friend couldn't make rent repayment and the landlord terminated her contract. Now the landlord (claimants) has taken out the claim against me as I was the guarantor and is responsible for my friend's debt. When I first  became the guarantor, I signed an agreement with the claimants. ( 1st agreement) A year later I had a meeting with the landlord to discuss my debt situation and told them I was struggling to make repayment. They agreed to give me a debt deduction and other terms, so a new agreement was drawn up (agreement 2). to replace the 1st agreement.   In 2016 I received a warning letter for late repayment. No further warning letter or contact has been made by the claimant since 2016 so I was shocked when I received the money claim.  Claimants have only attached the 1st agreement with their claim form and they denied there was a 2nd agreement. Now they have submitted their final witness statement and attached the 1st and 2nd agreement. Proving the 2nd agreement does exist.   My question is; 1. How important is it that no letter before action was sent before I received the money claim? 2. Now there's proof of a 2nd agreement which was signed and dated after the 1st agreement. Does it prove that the 1st agreement is invalid? 3. Would the court dismiss this claim if they believe the claimants have submitted an invalid agreement for their money claim?    Thank you. 
    • Hi   What date did they move into the Property & when did the Tenancy end?   How long was the initial Tenancy Agreement for?   Did you pay a Deposit/Holding Deposit for the Property?   Exactly what Notice of Arrears was given and when(what date)? (if for rent arrears)   Are they still in the Property or have they ended their Tenancy as per the Notice requirement to end that tenancy?   Is the Claim for Rent Arrears/Damages etc.?   Have you sent a Subject Access Request (SAR) which is free(due to GDPR) to the Landlord/Letting Agent asking for 'ALL DATA'?

Hi everyone


My cat had to go into the vets for an op and the insurance company have declined the claim. I took him to the vet as he was having trouble eating - dropping food etc. They said his teeth were ok and his gums looked fine but he did have two lumps - one on the inside of either cheek - which he was subsequently biting on. They gave him some painkiller and antibiotic and said to bring him back if that did not work.


I took him back as it worked for a couple of days and then he regressed. The vet (another vet) said that the best course of action was to have him in and do a biopsy on the lumps - with possible removal of teeth as they could sometimes be the cause (they develop a reaction to their own teeth). I mentioned to the vet that teeth and gums were not covered on his insurance and she said it would be fine as the lumps were in his cheeks - and I would need to pay for the teeth extractions - to which I agreed. She reassured me that they dealt with a lot of insurance companies and this would be fine.


She gave me an itemised estimate of treatment which was over £900. (on the estimate it says the reason is oral mass biopsy (=/- extractions) On the morning of the op I took him in and it said that he was in for a dental - which I questioned - and they said it was classed as a dental as they used the dental machine.


When I collected him - they had taken a biopsy of the cheek lumps and also one from his tongue - when I questioned this the vet said it was done because it didn't look right - and also did blood tests for feline HIV and another one that mentioned gingivitis - when I questioned this (gum exclusion??) she said it was just the wording of that blood test. Apparently the dental machine broke down and they could only take half of his teeth out - they were gong to take them all out.


I settled all the bill via my credit card and gave my claim form to the vets. All the biopsies and blood tests were clear. After 3.5 weeks of chasing they finally submitted it and it had been declined by my insurance as the vets have stated the reason is stomatitis. This was never mentioned to me and having looked into it - stomatitis IS an immune reaction where they start to reject their own teeth.


My thinking is that 1) His teeth were not neglected/had a massive tartar build up - as confirmed by the vet 2) his gums were fine - as confirmed by the vet - he went in initially for the lumps inside his cheeks - NOT on his gums. They also charged me £72 for a dental!! - which I had pointed out that morning that he was not in for a dental! (and it was not on the initial estimate)


He only has his 4 fangs and small front teeth remaining - and they charged £72 to clean these? Or they did them all - knowing they were going to pull all his molars out (until the machine broke down).

Someone from the insurance company is meant to be calling me back today - and also the insurance person from the vets is going to be calling me back today - neither have called yet. Views on where I stand on this would be appreciated please guys.


Thanks Foxy

Hello Foxy. I'm sorry about your kitty and the other problems.


I've merged your threads to the pet forum rather than have duplicates running, it causes confusion.

Insurers will stick to what the policy excludes, so if after the tests it was found to be dental related, then they will exclude the claim.


In my opinion, the Vets practice should have told you that the tests might reveal a dental issue that the Insurance would not cover and asked you whether you wanted to proceed based on no Insurance claim being possible.


If there is a complicated medical explanation as to why the Insurance company are not correct that it is dental and it is a disease or body condition that just happens to cause teeth to be rejected, then your Vets should write a letter of explanation to the Insurers. The Insurers should then refer to their own vetinery experts to check.

We could do with some help from you.

You need to get back to your vets. It's possibly in the way they've worded it and I find this can be more of a problem with the chains. They will have logged your cats problems under the most convenient section on their billing system. Ask them to resubmit giving a proper account of the procedures.
