    • Ok just an update sent my DQ recorded delivery, received by court 18/07/24, nothing yet showing on mcol. Deadline is Monday 22/07/24. Hopefully shows on before
    • So, the two child benefit cap is going to (rightly or wrongly) be a big issue, with the care of kids undoubtedly taking second place to political point scoring  ... Some think that parents should be responsible for kids, and the state pay as little as possible else the parents will just use having kids (which they then neglect) as a means of income for them to spend on fags and booze. Some think that benefits should be effectively there for anyone whatever the circumstances.   So what do people think might be some sort of solution?   I think that both those stances are extremes,  and you can be sure of just a few things 1. Neither or any approach fits all affected. There are some who will abuse the system, just as there are some left in genuine desperate need. 2. None of its the kids fault, and how they are treated will have a large impact on our nations future.   So, despite the claims of 'it means only rich people can have kids' which is rubbish, I think the cap should stay. ... BUT that free school meals should be introduced for all state school kids:   Which would * ensure our nations children kids get fed at least one meal a day with the funds intended for that * be a significant incentive to go to school for the poorer kids at least - keeping many off the streets and away from bad company * almost certainly reduce problems and increase productivity in the classroom from irritable hungry kids (per stats)   Not a perfect solution by any means - but seems a positive move to me.    
    • and more positive change From next year, mobile phone, paid television and broadband companies must inform customers of any price rises at the point of sale. The changes, ordered by Ofcom, will come into force on 17 January and mean that any mid-contract price rises must be given “in pounds and pence” and in a “clear and comprehensible” way.   Taken a change of government to do it after years of bluster about it eh?   Mobile phone companies banned from hiking prices mid-contract based on inflation WWW.INDEPENDENT.CO.UK The new year plan ensures providers are transparent on prices at the point of sale  
    • Could he/ his partner set up a new internet bank account?  In his name ? It depends which country, I imagine. Most UK banks want proof of address and ID, probably more. If your friend/partner can use the house address and provide bills that could help. You would need to look at various online banks and see what their requirements are. Or there are expat accounts but I haven't looked closely at how they work. Could I then get his pension diverted to that new account?  That would at least cover some costs  ( ie epc/ storage) I'd have thought the DWP would pay to a new account, as long as the person they're authorised to deal with asks them and provides details. The international pensions people in Newcastle are pretty helpful.
    • HB - he has certainly given me a challenge ! I set a plan in motion. A refinance plan that would have enabled me to take time to sell one asset and sort out another for him.   The bank account blockage has hindered the plan.  His partner seems to think I can do everything w/o paying anyone for anything.  I don't mind helping - but it's not normal to clear out 2 properties, organize storage or sale of possessions, get properties ready for sale/ rent - w/o being paid.  He has the money to pay for things and services - and for my help - but the blockage prevents that. If the refinance plan could still be actioned then at least I would have some time to sell one asset.  Could he/ his partner set up a new internet bank account?  In his name ? Could I then get his pension diverted to that new account?  That would at least cover some costs  ( ie epc/ storage)

    • Hello,

      On 15/1/24 booked appointment with Big Motoring World (BMW) to view a mini on 17/1/24 at 8pm at their Enfield dealership.  

      Car was dirty and test drive was two circuits of roundabout on entry to the showroom.  Was p/x my car and rushed by sales exec and a manager into buying the mini and a 3yr warranty that night, sale all wrapped up by 10pm.  They strongly advised me taking warranty out on car that age (2017) and confirmed it was honoured at over 500 UK registered garages.

      The next day, 18/1/24 noticed amber engine warning light on dashboard , immediately phoned BMW aftercare team to ask for it to be investigated asap at nearest garage to me. After 15 mins on hold was told only their 5 service centres across the UK can deal with car issues with earliest date for inspection in March ! Said I’m not happy with that given what sales team advised or driving car. Told an amber warning light only advisory so to drive with caution and call back when light goes red.

      I’m not happy to do this, drive the car or with the after care experience (a sign of further stresses to come) so want a refund and to return the car asap.

      Please can you advise what I need to do today to get this done. 
       

      Many thanks

    • We have finally managed to obtain the transcript of this case.

      The judge's reasoning is very useful and will certainly be helpful in any other cases relating to third-party rights where the customer has contracted with the courier company by using a broker.
      This is generally speaking the problem with using PackLink who are domiciled in Spain and very conveniently out of reach of the British justice system.

      Frankly I don't think that is any accident.

      One of the points that the judge made was that the customers contract with the broker specifically refers to the courier – and it is clear that the courier knows that they are acting for a third party. There is no need to name the third party. They just have to be recognisably part of a class of person – such as a sender or a recipient of the parcel.

      Please note that a recent case against UPS failed on exactly the same issue with the judge held that the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 did not apply.

      We will be getting that transcript very soon. We will look at it and we will understand how the judge made such catastrophic mistakes. It was a very poor judgement.
      We will be recommending that people do include this adverse judgement in their bundle so that when they go to county court the judge will see both sides and see the arguments against this adverse judgement.
      Also, we will be to demonstrate to the judge that we are fair-minded and that we don't mind bringing everything to the attention of the judge even if it is against our own interests.
      This is good ethical practice.

      It would be very nice if the parcel delivery companies – including EVRi – practised this kind of thing as well.

Certainly do! I have seen a few posts about MAS6, but this lot were definately MAS2, they changed their name to that while I had my mortgage with them. have a feeling that they might have been a subsidiary of Brittania, offering sub-prime mortgages.

 

Trying to find some documentation about them, it's all home here somewhere....

I am new member to the forum (6 June 2008) and found this discussion when making a search for MAS.

 

These messages date from 2006 but I am hoping that there are people who have some experiences to share about this mortgage company.

 

I have had a mortgage with MAS since 1997 (when it took over from Citibank - the original mortgage dates from 1988).

 

There have been numerous difficulties with both Citibank and even more so with MAS. The mortgage term ends in October 2009.

 

Very complex because the mortgage is raised on my property in order to house my brother who is in the vulnerable category, and the mortgage is supposed to be paid via my brother's Income Support.

 

I'd be happy to share any information that would be of interest to others. I am interested in hearing from anyone who has had or does have dealings with MAS.

 

One of the main problems I find is that there are no local reps and MAS has no website. I also deal with Nationwide who I find infinitely more professional.

 

Regards

:-x I would like info - I went for a remortage to get out of the sub prime and into the mainstream mortgages. I got a redemption figure from them, kept my payments up to date and actually paid in advance of the due date - and based my borrowing on the figures MAS gave me then two months after the original redemption figure I am being told that I owe 1k more on my mortgage and am having to get additional borrowing to complete the transaction.

 

And finding any complaints proceedure is almost impossible. Any info would be appreciated. And if there is anything I can do to help you in return visa ve your situation let me know.

 

thanks

Dear Shazburger

 

Thanks for replying.

 

I can see that our situations are very different but the problems are basically the same - that is MAS do not provide clear information to their clients and arrears pop up from nowhere. An added problem for me was in 1997 I used a company called MortgageChek (who had a deal with Chas de Vere to monitor mortgages, publicised in The Sunday Times). They didn't complete the job, I refused to pay all their charges and they tried to bankrupt me in 1999. They didn't manage to bankrupt me but nor did they complete the job which was about establishing what the arrears were.

 

What I am about to do is write to the Council of Mortgage Lenders (I was in contact with them ten years ago about the same problems) as things have come to a head.

 

I could copy you into the correspondence if you email me your address.

My email is [email protected].

 

You might like to pick up on issues that correspond to yours and involve the CML with your case. The other step we could both take is to pursue a formal complaint which could then - if not resolved - go to the Financial Ombudsman.

 

Best wishes
