Absolutely. We should make it that anyone can vouch for you, with no regulation or accountability.

 

Make it easy. That way anyone who wants to open bank accounts with a false name or defraud people can do so even more easily.

Sheesh!

 

Mind you, if your window cleaner has known you more than 2 years, and is a director of their own limited company : sorted, even within the current regulations ......

Update: Yesterday, one of my teachers contacted me on Facebook as I posted in a group asking if anyone knows who can sign my passport and she sent me a message saying she can sign it when she get's back from her holiday on September 9th, so that's my holiday to Benidorm sorted haha! Can't wait... :)

Need more advice please,

I have now filled in my passport application form what I got from the post office and also my friend who is an health nurse has filled in her bit where she has to put her details and sign and also sign my picture.

 

Now, where we put the date on the last page on section 9 and 10, we put the 14.09.2018 but I am not going to post it at the post office until a day later on the 15.09.2018 as I am in work on 14.09.2018 - will this be an issue?

will my application get rejected if I send it on the date that I haven't put on the form?

the same with the picture as well as my friend put the 14.09.2018.

 

Can someone please let me know as I am worried I will have to fill out the form again if I done it wrong, thank you.

Hi CT.

 

 

Are you serious about a day's difference in the date? I'd be amazed if it's a problem.

 

 

Have you checked the Passport Office list to see if your health nurse friend can countersign the form and photo? I thought your ex-teacher was doing it.

Hi, I was just a bit worried that the date might be an issue? my neighbour is doing it now, and yes, she is on the list of the countersign on GOV website as she is a nurse like I stated.

OK she's a nurse but the Passport Office website states she need to have one of two qualifications, have you checked that?

 

 

HB

 

Yes I have Honeybee13 - I contacted her on Whatsapp and she told me this: Qualified healthcare assistant with Level 3 diploma in health and social care. Not sure if she has one of them qualifications what stated on the Passport Office as she didn't say, but will this do that she has Level 3 in diploma? or will it get rejected if she signs for it?

She is not on that list.

25 days in (since the OP said they were using “Check & send” at the Post office).

 

List of persons able to sign clearly states “RGN or RMN” yet the OP is asking about a health care assistant.

OP is either on a wind-up mission, or needs to get someone to “hand hold” them through the process IRL

I have rang Passport Office and two advisers said that my friend who works in Health Care who has a Level 3 diploma in health and social care can sign the passport form and picture, so everything is good! So, the person who said she is not on the list, you are wrong!

I hope they're right at the Passport Office, channing, because that isn't how their list reads to me.

That's true Honeybee13 but I think they are right as they work at the office so they should know, 2 different advisers said it's ok so it must be lol.

I have just spoken to another one and another adviser said yes, my friend can sign as she is in health care work and she has that Level 3 in diploma so it must be right then lol.

Level 3 in nursing isn’t a RGN or RMN.

It may be that the Passport Office will accept it, but:

a) that isn’t what their own guideline says (you’ve been provided with the URL to look for yourself!), and

b) you are taking a risk that they might not accept it despite what the advisers said.

You did get their names and record the calls, didn’t you?

From experience, as long as the person countersigning the picture has a uk passport they'll accept it.

I had mine countersigned by my neighbour who works in a school as admin, not a teacher, not even graduated.

Update: Yesterday I went to the Post Office to post my Passport application and I used the check and send service, the lady who served me looked through my form and she said everything is ok with the form and I got my former teacher (who she now has now retired) to sign for it and the lady said it will take six weeks to get an update on my interview to continue my passport application. So all good! :)

Update: Passport office has booked my interview for Tuesday 25 September at 12.15pm - I am just wondering what's the dress code for these interviews? could I come in my jeans and t-shirt slogan (Nobody Knows I'm Gay) or do they not allow slogan t-shirts into the building?

I fyou get the answer wrong, then you shouldnt have one. They just ask for name, address, employment, they pick some random amounts from your bank statement and ask about them ( yes they have access to them), and a couple other questions just to verify your identity.

 

Youre worrying way too much over all this. its just a passport. Youll be in and out of the office in less than 20 mins.

    • Thank you dx, will replace with Hbos. Will get on mcol this week to submit.
    • Hi ericsbrother - thank you for this, definitely will start reading up on this! I have a couple of weeks before I have to upload the defence onto the MCOL website so perfect opportunity to get a bit more clued up. After I submit, is there an average timescale for what happens next? 
    • Hello ericsbrother - the CCJ awarded in 2015 is for exactly the same amount that they are claiming for in their recent CCJ awarded letters - it can really only be for the same credit card. Unfortunately, I just ignored any letters received in 2015.  I've checked my credit file again today and no new CCJ's have been added and there are no new upcoming changes - so not sure how they can claim they have recently obtained a CCJ.  I'm not sure what to do next when trying to fight my corner. I've read if I contact these companies then the clock starts ticking again and they have a further 6 years to chase me. I would appreciate any advice - thanks
    • If you feel happy about that – then yes. I don't see that there is any disadvantage at the moment.
    • sorry but you are missing the point about how the connections are made and their likely influence. It dioesnt matter it here are a hundred mats connected if the mains link going into the board is done incorrectly. also your use of wording such as "the installation" doesnt give much help, yes the fire started in the thermostat but WHERE ?  the board has a number of parts that get warm but the most likey culprit is hwere the mains is switched on and off and that is the bit that is doen by the installer.  generally you will have a neutral tht stays "on" all of the time and mains that goes into a switch that is connected to the sensors that then  switch the power on and off whilst stioll using the live unswitched connection to provide the current for the low voltage parts of the system. It is qwuite easy to misred the installation of this as the same board may be used for several differnt systems and thus the links need to be made in a different configuration for each system. Confuse type 1 with type 2 and you may well be passing a current permanenty though the system causing it to heat up to a point of no return. that si why you need to get a decent copy of the circiut diagram (not the installation diagram) from the makers so you can pass that on to your tame electronics bod to see what they make of the remnants

    • This is a bit of a lengthy one but I’ll summerise best as possible.
       
      THIS IS HOW THE PHONECALL WENT 
       
      I was contacted by future comms by phone, they stated that they could beat any phone contract I have , (I am a limited company but just myself that needs a business phone and I am the only worker) 
      I told future comms my deal, £110 per month with a phone and a virtual landline, they confirmed that they could beat that, £90 per month with a phone , virtual landline  they also confirmed they would pay Vodafone (previous provider) the termination fee. As I am in business, naturally I was open to making a deal. So we proceeded. 
      Future comms then revealed that the contract would be with PLAN.COM and the airtime would be provided by 02, I instantly told them that this would break the deal as I have poor 02 signal in the house where I live as my partner is on 02 and constantly complaining about bad signal
      the salesman assured me he would send a signal booster box out with the phone so I would have perfect signal.
      so far so good.....
      i then explained this is the only mobile phone I use for business and pleasure, so therefore I didn’t want any disconnection time in the slightest between the switchover from Vodafone to 02
      the salesman then confirmed that the existing phone would only be disconnected once the new phone was switched on.
      so far so good....

    • The FSA has announced large fines against DB UK Bank Limited (trading as DB Mortgages) - DeutscheBank and also against Redstone for their unfair treatment of their customers.
      Please see the links below for summaries and full details from the FSA website.
      It is now completely clear that any arrears charges which exceed actual administrative costs are unfair and therefore unlawful.
      Furthemore, irresponsible lending practices are also unfair and unlawful.
      Additionally there are other unfair practices including unarranged counsellor visits - even if they have been attempted.
      You are entitled to refuse counsellor visits and not incur any charges.
      Any charges for counsellor visits must not seek to make profits. The cost of the visits must be passed on to you at cost price.
      We are hearing stories of people being charged for counsellor visits for which there is no evidence that they were even attempted.
      It is clear that some mortgage lenders are trying to cheat you out of your money.
      You should ascertain how much has been taken from you and claim it back. The chances of winning are better than 90%. It is highly likely that the lender will attempt to avoid court action and offer you back your money.
      However, you should ensure that you receive a proper rate of interest and this means that you should be seeking at least restitutionary damages - which would be much higher than the statutory 8%.
      Furthermore, you should assess whether the paying of demands for unlawful excessive charges has also out you further into arrears and if this has caused you further penalties in terms of extra interest or any other prejudice. This should be claimed as well.
      If excessive unlawful charges have resulted in your credit file being affected, then you should take this into account also when working out exactly what you want by way of remedy from the lender.
      You should consult others on these forums when considering any offer.
      You must not make any complaint through the Ombudsman. your time will be wasted, you will wait up to 2 yrs and there will be a minimal 8% award of interest and no account will be taken of any other damage you have suffered.
      You must make your complaint through the County Court for a rapid and effective remedy.
