    • Hello, yesterday Barclays Bank put my account under review suddenly just i received a message about that to wait 7 days . I ve been to local branch and they didn't tell me any information saying to me to wait 14 days . The problem is I think they will take longer than they said and I can't wait so much cause I need the money for my own company and to live life daily. This situation its caused me a sever anxiety, I dont know what to do . I can prove that I m a self employed . Can somebody tell me what should I do ?  Some contact numbers or email addresses where can I text about this problem? I m new on this platform and I dont know how to manage this . Thank you
    • Hello yesterday Barclays Bank blocked my account with a substantial amount and I didnt get any reason for this issue why they put my account under review. I m a self employed and all the money blocked are very important to me to open my own company .. Can I get some information about what should I do in this case.  I ve been to the local branch but they didn't give me any information just to wait 14 days and I can t do that .
    • harveys are not the creditor, so them stating you should continue to make payments and you will not receive your payments back is immaterial.   the administrators of harveys are not your target. creation finance are.     these issues should be directed toward creation under p'haps a section 75 claim ....as they are the creditor ...they are equally responsible for the actions or inactions of either harveys or bensons.   we can appreciate you have had the usual run around, we are not indicating you have lied, merely pointing to the fact that you innocently believed what you have been told to date.   go get your moneyback and get the finance agreement cancelled.   dx 
    • you've not moved so until or unless you get a letter of claim via royal mail you ignore them.   as for anything on your credit file it should fall off after 6yrs.   dx    
    • 1st. it is not illegal for you, as the home owner, to open letters addressed to 'others' not resident at your address.   2nd because you did or did not employ the above, ultimately, this has led to a court judgement being handed down. the bailiff company have employed, quite rightly,  the methods that are legally available to them to trace the defendant.   rightly or wrongly they have traced you.   you need to write to the bailiff company concerned briefly explaining the above stating you are not the said person. you also need to write to the judgement court the same. you also need to write to the relevant rail toc    never use the phone.   dx

I had a car accident in December 2016 and a solicitor e-mailed me and started work in January 2017 but hasn't done much.

 

I didn't realise but another solicitor seems to have started work on this case in May 2017 and have done a lot more than the first.

 

I hadn't even realised that this second solicitor was different and have just answered them (all done on e-mail) and gone to the physiotherapy and psychotherapist organised by them.

 

The first one has now been back in touch and its just clicked that there are 2 doing the same case.

 

Please can anyone give me advice on what to do.

Thanks so much.

Hi,

the second employer just started e-mailing and asking me to e-mail back some details.

I have signed stuff to the 2nd company as they have worked much quicker and harder.

 

The 1st company has just come back on the scene.

Don't think I have signed letters of engagement.

 

No excuse for not realising I know but I'm a busy driving instructor and just look at my e-mails when I come in at night and answer them also its not always the same person who sends an e-mail and I just did not realise these were from different companies.

Employer?

 

and asking me to e-mail back some details. I have signed stuff to the 2nd company as they have worked much quicker and harder.

 

Hang on! I thought you were saying it was because you didn't realise they were a different firm.

Yet you hadn't signed stuff for the first firm, and the 2nd behaved in a different way.

 

What fee arrangements have been agreed with each?

 

This, too may influence things.

You need to get your story straight & stick to it, or they'll have you on the hook for 2 sets of fees, at least for the work each has done up until now.

Well the stuff I signed wasn't initial stuff for the 2nd company,

they have moved quick and got a settlement amount already and I have signed documents regarding that.

 

Sorry I sound a bit dim but it didn't enter my head that 2 companies would do this,

I hadn't contacted either of them myself.

 

Appreciate the feedback, thanks.

If you haven't signed anything with the first firm just tell them that they were never formally instructed and that you no longer require their services.

Are both solicitors actually dealing with your injury claim? It's not uncommon that there could be a firm dealing with the injury claim and another instructed by an insurer in relation to repair costs.

Thanks for replies. Trying to look back and see what was signed. Have told them both that there are 2 of them and told the first one that it is better I carry on with the second as they have arranged physio and another doctor so think I would be further in with them. Have to be honest and stop any further work being done.

Can anyone help as to the situation, should the second solicitor have checked we weren't being represented by anyone else.

 

Have told both solicitors we inadvertently have both acting for us and the first solicitor has hit us with a £2,700 bill.

 

We haven't ever done this before and our inexperience has cost us all the money.

 

Different people e-mail all the time, we have had 7 different people e-mailing from both firms and it is hard to know who is who.

 

Any input would be so appreciated.

Hard to tell without the answers to the questions (you were previously asked) about what was signed, with whom, and which "bits" each firm was acting on / instructed for.......

How did you end up with two different firms of solicitors working on the same case?

 

I think we would need to know how this happened in order to understand whether you have to pay this bill or not.

Checked how? There is no central database to look it up on.

 

It was your responsibility to check before instructing a new firm of solicitors.
