    • Do they need the insured's permission?  Won't the insured have agreed for the insurer to have conduct of any claims and to assist in any court case(s)?   I don't understand why the OP is reluctant to assist their former insurer?
    • The ombudsman services has rewarded us 9k for a Biomass boiler was installed incorrectly and never worked properly. The installer is refusing to pay. He has set up sole trader but has now ceased trading. The consumer code HIES part of the renewable MCS scheme which our installer was accredited to is recommending that we take him to court before they are able to use their compensation fund to pay us this money. Even though their terms state clearly that they would pay the consumer the ADR award if installer declines to do so and they will then at then seek payment via the courts themselves. Can the consumer body recommend this would this be seen as legal advice? If so surely they can’t do this? Attached is the term of membership which talks about the compensation fund held by the consumer body in section H in attached document        Reference 19 - HIES Contractors scheme standard terms of membership.pdf
    • I rent a garage from a large Housing Association in London, and I have for many years. The garage  is in a cul-de-sac with few others, and the entrance is through a small path between two houses. I live in a different area and I use it for storage. A few months ago  I found a pillar bar installed at the beginning of the path. I contacted the landlord, thinking that they had installed the bar, to get a copy of the key.  In fact, I tried unsuccesfully to contact the responsible area manager for nearly a month, with countless phone calls and messages left with the receptionist, but was never called back.  In the meantime I found out that the bar wasn't installed by the landlord but by another garage renter, who then asked a hefty fee for a copy of the key from myself and apparently everybody else.  I was totally enraged by the request which bordered extortion, but in the end I had to fork out as the landlord never ever got back to me and I needed to access the storage. The lock of the bar is now broken, and I am dreading having to pay again for a replacement in order to access the garage where my belongings are. To challenge the individual is not an option. He was very confrontational, and I don;t want to feel intimidated when accessing the garage. How can I make the landlord take notice and remove the bar? I feel the landlord is responsible for ensuring that the access is open, but my messages always stop with the receptionist.  Thank you   Cris
    • Yes, it's been cancelled. On what grounds can I ask for a chargeback?
    • its called continuous payment authority which both your bank and TT should know about!!   simply ask you bank for a chargeback they should not refuse you.   then also get them to cancel the CPA too.

    • 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

No as it goes back the years that my ex never paid. I think about 5 years worth. He was supposed to pay it and never. Which left me with the debt

I already did question them years ago

but there is nothing they can do as my name was on it only.

 

When I called the council last night.

They said I can call this morning and speak to a supervisor who might stop my wages being arrested.

 

However it would depend on their mood!

I'm just worried my employer might dismiss me as I've only been with them 7 months

 

I have called the council this morning and they are going to cancel my wages getting arrested and I have made an agreement to pay it off monthly.

I have been worried sick over this.

Thank you for all your help.

No. I've been paying it at £40 per month. When I moved I stopped paying. The debt was over 9k. My ex left me with it all. It was in my name only �� What if I just start saying it again, would this avoid any further action or will I need to phone them

Ex wasn't registered as residing at the property or on the Electoral Register.?

morning, sorry my ex wasn't registered at the property. Mortgage was in my name solely as he was unable to get credit. :-(
