    • I have got a copy of the charge. The Land Registry responded to say that the document attached to the RX1 was as follows. The A4 document headed 'Health and Social Services and Social Security Adjudications Act 1983 and National Health Service and Community Care Act 1990' is a statutory charge. However as the person concerned (your late father) was one of joint proprietors of the property, the charge could not be registered or noted. Instead it was protected by registration of a restriction.   This is a statutory charge that has arisen under section 22 of the Health and Social Services and Social Security Adjudications Act 1983.   Unfortunately the Land Registry blog was discontinued on 30 June 2020 [I only found out today!] they're waiting for a new platform which could take a few weeks - so I haven't been able to obtain any other advice, other than what I found in the Hardwick and co website today which stated that S22 of HASSA had been repealed and stated that    After 1 April 2015 a Local Authority will only be able to recover unpaid care home fees by securing a judgment debt either in the County Court or the High Court (s69(1) of the Act). and The Act increases the time limit for the recovery of a debt comprising of unpaid care home fees from three years to six years from the date the sum becomes due   hence I thought that as the fees had not been paid and more than 3 years had elapsed that perhaps the charge was no longer extant?    If the restriction is such that the CS only has to notify the council [and there's no restriction on me selling] then I thought the sale could proceed while I continue to battle it out with the council. Who haven't been in touch now since 2016.   This is all very complicated - I'm sure it could be simplified!!   Thank you      
    • You've been here since 2013 so you must be aware that the tell people all the time to read our customer services guide and to record their calls. We try to remind people that if they don't record their calls then sooner or later they will regret it. I think if you do anything morning telephone you should have read our customer services guide first because then you would have the evidence you need to persuade people that you did take the action that you saved it. I suspect one of the problems it will be managing to establish that you let people know in advance. If there is a delivery which signed for that you may find that Amazon and also your bank may not be very happy about helping you out. Although the bank may activate the chargeback, they may later on after a further "investigation" for the money back from you. Suggest that you send Amazon an SAR.  
    • Thanks. Do I go to the bank and ask for this, or is this something I have to apply for outside the bank?     
    • No, definitely not, I'm always very careful with stuff like that. To the point that I'm very surprised this has happened. Thanks for responding.
    • Seconded.  Just learn from the experience for the next time and make sure this is the last money you ever give these sharks.

    • 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

Lloyds overdraft

Hi

ive been trying to sort out my finances over the last couple of years. I’ve had a debt with Lowell that I went to court with and won, and now I have 2 debts left with Lowell which I’m ignoring u TIL they do something more (I hope that’s the right thing to do). I also had an npower issue which I’ve just got a tomlin order for with help from here (thank you!)

 

But, now I have a huge Lloyd’s overdraft. My situation is that I’ve not been working for about 8 years due to childcare costs meaning that It would literally have cost me to work. My husband works full time. I have been in receipt of child benefit, maintenance payments and tax credits which has just changed to universal credit. Our finances were tight but we’ve mainly got by.  About 18 months ago we were a bit short one month so I applied for an overdraft of £500, to my shock they accepted. I then applied to increase it and they just kept on increasing it until now it’s over £3000. My income that goes into my bank doesn’t come close to even clearing that at any point during the month, so I am charged daily fees every day, which obviously vary but amount to about £180 each month. These fees are making things incredibly difficult for us financially and I’ve realised I have to do something about it, but I’ve absolutely no idea what. I’ve googled and the main advice that seems to be given out is to get an interest free credit card and transfer it to pay it down, but I can’t get one of those so I’ve been stuck desperately trying to cover these fees each month which aren’t even chipping away at the balance. 

So I was asking for advice on two matters here, firstly what is the best way to get rid of this overdraft? I’ve already thought about setting up a new bank account and transfer all of my banking stuff to them, but  then Lloyd’s will just continue adding this interest and the debt will spiral . I have no idea what else to do as I can’t currently afford to pay down the balance at all while I’m paying these fees.

 

my other thought was that surely they should have never given me the overdraft in the first place, they knew I wasn’t working and obviously knew what my income was exactly as it all goes into this account, can I do anything regarding that? 

 

Sorry this is so long, but any advice at all would be massively appreciated

They have you on their money go round  Jayne...and which is extremely difficult to stop and get off as you have found.

 

So...here we go...open fresh banking facilities unconnected to Lloyds ...just a basic with no OD ...transfer you DD/s SO/s etc and income arrangement.

 

Once your all set up and the Lloyds account is isolated you need to draft a little ditty to Lloyds asking them to freeze interest and stop the OD fees and if this is acceptable you look forward to setting up an affordable monthly payment arrangement.There is a template in the Library but you may need to adapt it re payment offer.

 

Now they may cooperate or they may decline...if the latter they will default you..eventually...and possibly assign the debt to some Debt buyer DCA...but by the that time the facility will have been terminated and no further charges being applied.

 

Once its been assigned come back here for further advice.

 

Regards

 

Andy
