    • if your loan is an unsecured loan, but you own a home were they to make you bankrupt, could you lose the home....... .............   i will assume you are talking about your wife's debts? as you've said YOU don't own a home ?  
    • Shops at the retail park beside me were mobbed today, last week the motorway between Glasgow and Edinburgh was as busy as it ever has been.
    • I have a loan with Commsave dx, the deductions come straight from my wages. When you join you tell them how much you want to save either weekly or monthly and you authorise them take deductions from your wages towards your savings account with them, same thing apply's when you have a loan with them.
    • I went from Virgin Media to Sky Q earlier this year as I wasn't a great fan of Tivo and was keen to try Sky Q.   When it was installed, I was offered the chance to replace my aging (ten year old) dish which I accepted.   In the last few days, I've come to the conclusion that Sky Q isn't for me and that I'd ideally like to downgrade it at the end of my contract to go back to using my old Sky+ HD box, which I still have.   Much to my surprise, I subsequently found out that the LNB on my dish would not be compatible as Q uses a special "wide band" LNB and the older boxes do not.   I contacted Sky to confirm this, which they did.   They also told me that there would be nothing they could do and that if I wanted to continue using my dish with my older box then I would have to pay to get it re-fitted myself which, after some investigation, would cost me at least £150 pounds.   The issue of future compatibility wasn't mentioned anywhere in the literature or the official Sky Q contract, but the Sky employee I was talking to agreed that it could present a problem and said that he would pass it "up the ladder" to see if the wording could be changed to better explain it to prevent any future problems - all the while telling me there was nothing they could do for me specifically.   I understand that I'm getting the service I paid for, which I have no issue with.   I understand that I'm only loaning the equipment and that it has to be returned at the end of the contract.   That I also have no problem with.   The contract also states that the dish becomes mine at the point of installation as well, which is also fine.   Basically, Sky have provided the service stated in the contract.   My problem with this is that Sky must clearly know that many people use, and still use, older boxes.   They still sell viewing cards for these older boxes, so that in itself should be enough to prove that they are aware of the compatibility issues between the two pieces of hardware.   Should there not have been even a small advisory akin to "Customers please note: Sky Q dishes are not compatible with older hardware" ?   By choosing to omit this information,  it not only prevented me from making an informed decision at installation, as I could have apparently asked for what's called a "Hybrid LNB" which would be compatible with older hardware, but it will also leave me significantly out of pocket at the end of the contract.   Is there anything in this ?.  Can I challenge this in any capacity ?.   Ideally, I'd like them to let me out of the Sky Q contract so I can downgrade to the Sky+ HD box I own, but I accept this will likely not be possible.   I'd be interested in your thoughts.   Thankyou.

    • 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

They weren't interested in settling during conciliation .

Unfair redundancy .

They dispute it all .

Sorry to hear that; I found something here - https://www.monacosolicitors.co.uk/templates/ - but a more experienced person may help later; just thought to give them idea for some time so they know boundaries to try and help with - just from my past experience it was not nice to go through. I hope you get it sorted.

What letters? To who? This isn't very much information, and you really need to tell us a lot more before we understand what you are talking about. I hope you have some solid evidence, because tribunals don't like being involved in personal disputes. I'm not saying that's what is going on, but divorces tend to make them look for vendettas in proceedings, which is inevitably going to be at least part of the defence. I don't need a lot of detail to see that coming!

 

So please start at the beginning - tell us why you think it was unfair and what has happened - and what you are stuck with...

Thank you for your reply , there is no need for you to sound so patronizing , i don't need your opinion on the tribunals as i understand what they are there for and this is not a personal dispute . All i need help with is the wording of my letters that is all im stuck with thank you very much .

Wow. That will teach me to try to help you. Good luck. I'm out. I hope someone who also has the odd 30 years experience of going to tribunals with cases is hanging around willing to be insulted by you. You really need to get a grip. Pull a tantrum like that in a tribunal and you will be out of the door so fast your feet won't touch the ground.

Come on Sangie, don't be like that.

Just write a letter, any letter about anything for her...

I woud say breakdown in personl realtionship and inability to work together is a reason for dismissal for "some other significant reason." Not aure I'd have gone with redundancy but the outcome is the same.


Never assume anyone on the internet is who they say they are. Only rely on advice from insured professionals you have paid for!

Why was sangues reply patronising?

I didn't find it that way at all.

Tone can be very hard to read in the written word :/

at least the reasons for the divorce wont need explaining.

OP if you read through your original post you will hopefully see that it is so vague as to be incomprehensiible as to what you want othe rthan someone to help write letters. People dont send letters to Tribunals, they send statements, evidence submissions etc. This may seem picky butknowing about the procedure and its terminology will help you massively and this means either reading up on it or passing the whole lot on to a professional.

Good to hear that you have got what you need for now deedee43.

 

For what its worth, I thought sangie's reply was helpful rather than patronising. She definitely knows what she is talking about. It is very difficult to convey tone across the internet so it is easy to misread things.

 

Feel free to post further details if you need more help.
