    • And with 33% equity nobody will care either.
    • 3 threads merged please keep to one thread.   forget the calendar section of a credit - no-one bar the original creditor and the person can see that   its the summary status line the any potential lender will only see.   so as it stands, she as 1 or 2 in the calendar section which, correctly shows she was either late with the required payment for that month or short paid what should have been.   although these will effect here potential 'score'. as said above only the lender and her can see them
    • I haven't had a chance to read through his contract yet but he is insisting that it says of he leaves his position within 2 years he will have to pay back his course fees. I will read it properly though and get back to you  Thanks for your help so far 
    • Hi all,   New to the forum, so please feel free to move the topic if needed.   I need a little help with a used car: I bought an 04 BMW from a dealer about 2.5 weeks ago. It cost £1,600. I gave it a test drive and it seemed pretty decent so paid via bank transfer and took it home. The issue started when I took it on a national speed limit road as the car started to sway on the road. I reported this to the dealer and he agreed to fix the issue. He took it to his mechanic who informed him that it was the drivers side hub. They didn't have time to fit it so gave me the part and the option to use a local mechanic. The mechanic agreed it would be causing the sway, charged me £80, which the dealer refunded to me.  The car was improved but we went on a short break over the last few days and I drove the car about 35 miles away. The issue now is there is a rumbling sound, noticeable on motorways and it doesn't feel particularly safe, especially over deviations in the road. As the swaying was the main issue I can't say if that rumbling was there to begin with.   The dealer has been fair to me so far in refunding me the money but he did admit he only test drove the car and it wasn't checked over fully when I took it back the first time. My mechanic said the play on hub was so bad it should never have been sold in that condition. I have messaged the dealer this evening explaining the issue but he has been a bit defensive saying the car does not have a warranty and he has already spent money on repairing it. He will need to speak to his manager and get back to me. To be fair to him he has attempted to repair it but for me he should never have sold it without it being mechanically checked over.  What do people make of this? What are my options if he won't budge and I need to take it further. I would like a refund rather than another repair as I feel I have been pretty patient so far. At the moment I have a car that isn't safe and I can't afford to take a £1,600 hit in my pocket.   Many thanks,   Mark.  
    • I have threads elsewhere re a repayment plan (6 months) with Barclays Mortgages during a maternity leave. Arrears now paid, trying to re-mortgage but with great difficulty. Not really advised of dire consequences of this decision, trying to get SAR info but no luck with telephone recordings as yet. Complaint handler appear sympathetic but who knows to what extent. Looked at Which website and they mentioned a Goodwill Adjustment letter which I have never heard of. Intention of this thread was to see if anybody had used this to remove bad markers from their credit files.

    • 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

Hi Hope someone can help me.


I am taking Lloyds to court and went to the prelimanary hearing along with SCM's solicitors.


The solicitors said that they could not identify all of the charges I had claimed and wanted more evidence. The judge decided it would be a good idea to reconvene for another prelimanary hearing - stating it would be better as it would not likely come to the second hearing because if I gave them my workings out he would expect Lloyds to pay up instantly.


I sent SCM back my statements that Lloyds supplied me and sent a copy to the courts and have heard nothing since, even after a couple of phone calls.


The second hearing is in 2 weeks, I have not heard from SCM and don't expect to, my issue is that I am on holiday then and will not be able to attend. I know I could fill in a form and get the changed but this has been going on for too long and the revised date will be months and months away.


Do you think I should write a letter to the courts, in summary saying SCM has the documentation and did not communicate with me, I tried everything I could to resolve the issue and I hope to see them in court. Or words to that effect.


Or I was thinking of getting a solicitor in at this point, just to cover me at the hearing


Or should i just let the hearing go on without me.



My only worry is if SCM identifies an error in my list of charges they may try to get my case thrown out and without me being there it may happen


What do you guys think?


Any help will be appreciated

"Should I let the hearing go ahead without me?" - NO!!


Should you get a solicitor in at this point? I wouldn't.


Should you write to the court? Yes.


Write to the District Judge (Dear Judge) and tell him Lloyds (or SC&M) are not playing ball and ask him to either strike out their defence or re-schedule the hearing for the first available date after your holiday.


I take it you did double check your list of charges? Didn't you have the list and the copy statements with you at the Directions Hearing? Didn't SC&M specifiy which charges they couldn't identify?


Just my 2 cents.

Thanks for your 2 cents, pretty much what I thought.


In answer to your questions


I take it you did double check your list of charges?

Yes, all seemed fine, however I just not 100% convinced because of what has been said


Didn't you have the list and the copy statements with you at the Directions Hearing?

No like an idiot. Nobody advised me to take anything only myself, which is a shame, not blaming anyone of course.


Didn't SC&M specifiy which charges they couldn't identify?

No, the solicitor was a bit clueless about most things, like my name, Judges name, the day, date and probably his own name.


I am not going to be able to attend, I am loathed to get the hearing moved because this will never get resolved at this rate, however I will send the letter to say I've done all my bits I can.


Does anyone know the likely outcome at the hearing?

I would urge you not to let the hearing go ahead without you.


Yes they might settle the day before, but equally they may turn up and try to settle with you just prior to the hearing, and if you're not there you could lose.


I would PM a mod if I were you for the best advice.
