    • Serco are not up to the job, but director's of Serco are buddies with Ministers handing out contracts like confetti on the back of Covid.  Track & Trace and Isolate should be a LA competence, not private firms on the make.   Interesting blog today, the genesis of the crisis started with Blair in 2005, subsequent administrations did nothing to improve responses to pandemic.   https://www.turbulenttimes.co.uk/news/corona/scared-to-death/    
    • Independent Sage met yesterday and has a new report out.   They think the national test and trace system doesn't work and are urging the government not to renew Serco's contract. They say the job should be done by GPs and local public health people who are already deal with the more complex cases and care homes.   https://www.independentsage.org/an-independent-sage-discussion-document-on-contact-tracing-and-self-isolation/
    • Thanks for your reply.   I don't have the money to get the repairs or inspections done to be honest.    It's a BMW 1 series.   I've learnt my lesson. I was having a pretty hard time with my health to be honest at the time. I bought it as a present to myself but was too trusting. 
    • This is a tricky one, BMW's , wide wheels, low profile tyres, stiff suspension over deviations, German Cars are known for that.  It might have winter tyres on, that would cause a rumble. My Volvo is also very weird like that.  It could also be a wheel bearing, which isn't expensive but would need to be done. Why not take it to your mechanic for a an inspection, or the AA/ RAC also do that.  I've learnt the hard way that's what you need to do before you buy the car,    What BMW is it?  I would only buy this brand of car at that age if it had a full history of every service and everything that has been spent on it during it's lifetime.
    • If you get somebody to cover for you on those last three days, are you saying you are OK?  ie you don't need to go to work in your old job and you can start the new one?  So that gives you what you want - yes?   If you can't get somebody to cover for you, you've got two potential courses of action - which may or may not be mutually exclusive.  First, ask if you can move your termination date forward by three days.  Obviously you won't get paid for those three days and whether your current trust will agree to this depends on what sort of relationship you have with your manager and how much they will need you to work those three days - or how easy you will be to replace.  If they say OK - you win.   Second, you don't turn up for work on those three days.  You will then technically be in breach of contract and in theory the trust could sue you for any financial loss they suffer as a result.  This would be the cost of employing somebody to replace you for those three days.  Will they need to replace you?  I suspect they would not bother to sue you, but nobody can guarantee they won't.  And what if you want a reference from them in future?  If you've already asked to bring your leave date forward, and they've refused, they may rightly conclude that you are taking the pi$$ if you don't turn up on those days, and they won't like it - or rather they won't like you...   Or, as I said before, get your new start date put back three days.   The thing is, your current employer can't extend your notice period unless you agree.  If they won't allow you to take leave owing to you during that notice period, they should pay you for it.  Whether you should write to them as I suggested earlier is more complicated because the situation is much less clear cut than you originally outlined.  (You had implied that they had already refused your request to take leave owing to you during your notice period and that you would have to extend your notice period to allow you to take that leave.  That isn't quite the position, is it?  And they haven't actually said they won't pay you for any leave you don't take, have they?)   Two other things: first, are you changing employer within the NHS?  If you are, it's a possibility that questions may be asked if you are in the pension scheme and you have two periods of full-time employment that overlap.   Second, your manager's email refers to "your last working day".  This is a little ambiguous and can cause a lot of confusion in the NHS.  You may wish to check whether they mean it is the last day of your employment (ie including any leave you are taking) or is it the last day you are actually present working.  Do you see the difference?  Managers often get hopelessly confused by this without HR guidance.  (And HR often get it wrong).   It's a pity you can't or won't seek union guidance if you are a member - that's what you pay for.

    • 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

Hiya,

 

I am at same stage as you, I have just completed my MCOL bit and awaiting the next stage. The address you need is 8 Canada Square, but if you put the postcode in and ask it to find the address it will - E14 5HQ once filed then send them 2 copies of your breakdown.

 

If you read this then it should help answer some questions for you

OMG Particulars of the claim......hhhmmm I have no idea when i opened the account, I have had it since I was a kid, any way i can find out?

 

Your account number

Date account was opened

The date from when your charges began

That you have already supplied a schedule of charges

That you will be supplying a further copy

That the defendant has levied charges and interest

That the defendants contractual term which allows charges is unfair and contrary to common law

Total amount claimed

 

Think I understand the above, but what are the next 2 about?

OK for the interset do i use interset calculator like on Bank Charges: Reclaim them, they're unlawful, get up to six years' money back...

 

and work out interest for each charge? This is will then increase the amount i am claiming? I didnt intend to claim interest to start with, but seems you do now?

OK I think I have muddled through, nice headache here now!!

 

Just a quick question, once I have filed this claim, I have stated that I have sent another copy of th4e charges to the bank, do I do that now?

Share this post

OK just want to check everything over for you:

 

Have you entered all your charge details into a spreadsheet??

 

This will act as your schedule of charges and will calculate the 8% interest on each charge from the date it was applied to your account.

 

http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/Spreadsheets/England/Simple-charges-calc.xls

 

This schedule is what you will send to the bank upon submission of your claim through the courts.

 

 

The claimant claims interest under section 69 of the County Courts Act 1984 at the rate of 8% a year from {date when the money became owed to you} to {the date you are issuing the claim} of £ {put the amount} and also interest at the same rate up to the date of judgment or earlier payment at a daily rate of {enter the daily rate of interest}.

 

{date when the money became owed to you} This is the date of the first charge you are reclaiming.

 

{the date you are issuing the claim} This is the actual date you file your claim through the court.

 

{put the amount} This is the total amount of the 8% interest as calculated by the spreadsheet, not the Charges total.

 

{enter the daily rate of interest} The daily rate is calculated by Charges Total x 0.00022, therefore £0.85 is a little excessive. You state in your first post that you're claiming £650, if this is the total of your charges then your daily rate will be £0.14.

Once you have filed your claim, you need to send 2 copies of your schedule of charges, clearly marked with your claim no. + a brief covering letter asking for them to be filed with your claim to:

 

 

 

The Court Manager,

Money Claim Online

Northampton County Court

21-27 St. Katharine's Street

Northampton

NN1 2LH

 

Dear Sir/Madam

 

(Your Name) –v- (Bank)

Claim No: ********

Date Issued: xx/xx/xx

 

Please find enclosed a schedule of penalty charges taken from me by the defendant, along with interest claimed at the annual rate of 8% pursuant to section 69 of the County Court Act. The interest in addition to the amount in charges equates to the total amount of my claim, namely £(AMOUNT).

 

I respectfully request that the enclosed schedule should be attached to the particulars of my claim.

 

Yours sincerely,

 

 

 

 

Wait until you receive the Notice of Acknowledgement (not the Notice of Issue) from the court and then send a copy to the bank’s solicitors, since they are the ones who will now be dealing with your claim

DG's details will be on page 2 of the acknowl.

 

 

 

Dear Sir,

 

(Your Name) -v- (Bank)

Claim No: ********

Date Issued: xx/xx/xx

 

Please find enclosed a copy of my schedule of charges relating to the above claim.

 

(If, and only if, you are claiming overdraft interest on your penalties, also include this paragraph)

 

 

I understand you have a policy of initially rejecting claims for overdraft interest. However, should this be the case after you have reviewed my claim, you should be aware that my claim for overdraft interest has been meticulously calculated and double checked. It only ever relates to the cumulative charges within the overdrawn balance of the account at the point that the overdraft interest was debited

 

If it is that in your view the interest is not claimable, I am prepared to discuss this with yourseves and the judge in court.

 

Yours sincerely,

OK MCOL has issues HSBC today, but i now notice on MCOL I have 'start' option under judgement, then an option to select 'judgement by default or judgement by admission, do i need to select one of those now?

 

also now its been issued what do i do? Do i now send a copy of charges to DG? and a nudge letter? any links to nudge letters?

nudging is for after the 28 days when they have filed their defence.

wait for the next paper - notice of acknowledgment - dg address will be on page 2 - then send them a copy of your breakdown.

don't press the judgment button - although it shouldn't let you until either the 14 days have passed from the service date (if they don't acknowledge) or 28 days have passed if they acknowledge but forget to file their defence -

so, just sit tight for a bit now - you should receive a notice of issue - then a notice of acknowledgment and then a notice of defence with a transfer to your local court - that's the order of paperwork.
