    • if your loan is an unsecured loan, but you own a home were they to make you bankrupt, could you lose the home....... .............   i will assume you are talking about your wife's debts? as you've said YOU don't own a home ?  
    • Shops at the retail park beside me were mobbed today, last week the motorway between Glasgow and Edinburgh was as busy as it ever has been.
    • I have a loan with Commsave dx, the deductions come straight from my wages. When you join you tell them how much you want to save either weekly or monthly and you authorise them take deductions from your wages towards your savings account with them, same thing apply's when you have a loan with them.
    • I went from Virgin Media to Sky Q earlier this year as I wasn't a great fan of Tivo and was keen to try Sky Q.   When it was installed, I was offered the chance to replace my aging (ten year old) dish which I accepted.   In the last few days, I've come to the conclusion that Sky Q isn't for me and that I'd ideally like to downgrade it at the end of my contract to go back to using my old Sky+ HD box, which I still have.   Much to my surprise, I subsequently found out that the LNB on my dish would not be compatible as Q uses a special "wide band" LNB and the older boxes do not.   I contacted Sky to confirm this, which they did.   They also told me that there would be nothing they could do and that if I wanted to continue using my dish with my older box then I would have to pay to get it re-fitted myself which, after some investigation, would cost me at least £150 pounds.   The issue of future compatibility wasn't mentioned anywhere in the literature or the official Sky Q contract, but the Sky employee I was talking to agreed that it could present a problem and said that he would pass it "up the ladder" to see if the wording could be changed to better explain it to prevent any future problems - all the while telling me there was nothing they could do for me specifically.   I understand that I'm getting the service I paid for, which I have no issue with.   I understand that I'm only loaning the equipment and that it has to be returned at the end of the contract.   That I also have no problem with.   The contract also states that the dish becomes mine at the point of installation as well, which is also fine.   Basically, Sky have provided the service stated in the contract.   My problem with this is that Sky must clearly know that many people use, and still use, older boxes.   They still sell viewing cards for these older boxes, so that in itself should be enough to prove that they are aware of the compatibility issues between the two pieces of hardware.   Should there not have been even a small advisory akin to "Customers please note: Sky Q dishes are not compatible with older hardware" ?   By choosing to omit this information,  it not only prevented me from making an informed decision at installation, as I could have apparently asked for what's called a "Hybrid LNB" which would be compatible with older hardware, but it will also leave me significantly out of pocket at the end of the contract.   Is there anything in this ?.  Can I challenge this in any capacity ?.   Ideally, I'd like them to let me out of the Sky Q contract so I can downgrade to the Sky+ HD box I own, but I accept this will likely not be possible.   I'd be interested in your thoughts.   Thankyou.

    • 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

It is in one piece, recently fully reburbished/decorated AND a new boiler (of course). It's got another garage on the other side and a big garden shed too.

 

I'm going to sell up pay off debts, have a holiday (God knows I need one badly) and rent somewhere. That way I might have some money in my pocket once again.

Wouldn't you be better downsizing if you can, as if you rent you are just paying off someone elses mortgage.

True, but I'm not bothered really. If I have a mortgage then I'm only making banks richer.

 

I'm having a look around the area for something - sale or rent, but not bothered which.

I tend to look on a mortgage as paying myself something every month. Okay most of it I'm actually paying in interest to the bank but some of it goes towards increasing the amount of equity I have in the property.

I actually just seen an advert on TV last night for a company who buy property from you, then you stay on as a tenant, you get 100% of the market value with min 80% up front apparently. You then stay on and pay rent. Might be worth looking into, unless of course you are looking for a clean break and change of scenery.

I looked at those, but they only guarantee that you can stay there 6 months, and then you are out...generally.

 

There was a BBC report about it.

 

No, I think I'm going to sell up, use some of the dosh to do the other house up and sell that too, then go and work as a petrol pump attendent or similar.

Snort. I was thinking I might become a disposable lighter repairman, seeing as petrol pumps are pretty much all self-service these days.

Personally I dont think renting is such a bad idea .

You pay you weekly or monthly rent and therefore have the security that if something goes wrong with the house it is not you who needs to foot the bill or make an insurance claim.Also if something goes wrong ie jobloss,relationship breakdown etc. you simply hand in your notice and relocate.

That's what I'm after, plus I only have to do the job I'm doing (and I got bored with this after 10 years, five years ago), because it's the only thing I can do that brings in enough money to pay for the house(s), so without them I'm free to retrain, or simply go and be a petrol pump attendent.

 

I'm fed up with earning a decent wage, and always having no money.

 

This seems to solve all of those problems.

 

Plus, with the luck I've had with houses, I want it to be someone elses problem WHEN they go wrong.

 

I've had 2 boilers go and flood the house, the last one burnt part of it too, the electrics went at one point and all had to be done again, the list is endless over a 7 year period, so I think it might be for the best.

Totally with you with regards to never having any money just for the sake of paying for a house.

Renting is the thing to do in my opinion and the thing about having a mortgage ?? Well I'd rather have the security of being able to pack up and go and that repairs and all that comes with it wont affect my wallet.

As for selling your house(s) Dave ,I'm sure going by the description,and providing your boiler probs (lol) have been sorted you'll have no probs !!;)

Ha - yes the boiler problems are all sorted - so it'll be quite some time before they go again I would have thought.

 

Thanks to the last time though, the whole house has been referbished - was completed last Oct.
