If the bank recoups more than their investment, (what is owed on the mortgage) please explain why the bank would give Gainvydia anything back? Since they would have REPOSSESSED the house, they are the sole owners and the defaulter would have no more legal title to anything. Unless their is a default...

I believe it was the fall of 2007 extending into 2008. Since you seem quite knowledgeable on the subject, I'm wondering if it could have been "special circumstances", because the country of departure could have been considered (I'm guessing) from the 3rd world and the couple were made (cynically it ...

don't worry

I second the last comment. Dont worry. It's not a business, just a hobby.
That would be like the neighbour boy doing odd jobs for the elderly for cash. Would we advise him to declare it?

expensive london

Is New York so cheap ($50-$70/wk). or maybe you meant £ as in British pounds, cause you'll have to pay in pounds. $1.65 will buy you only £1.
Even in pounds, (50-70/wk.) would be a tough find..
Bring a big sackfull of dollars for London.

flat frauds

Not impossible but I think it would be tough to secure a flatshare online without a deposit first. You and your prospective flat-mate will have to convince each other of your trusty-worthy-ness. And that's the problem whether online or even by phone. I've seen quite a few scammers online asking for ...

private insurance

Just wondering, if a foreigner has a contact in the UK, could the contact not purchase the health insurance for the visitor/immigrant, as is the case in other countries? Or, with no contact, couldn't the immigrant in this case Sankar, purchase from a local British insurer online? Wouldn't he rather ...

Health Care Providers

If you're interested: As an foreigner looking in, it is a mystery why the State puts the onus on the frontline health-care providers to determine whether a person is entitled to this social benefit. Are they health-care providers or Border Agents? In State administration, the UK is ahead of the curv...

1st hand

Dear Directive: By 1st-hand I mean that I was involved in procuring a letter of employment for a Canadian-born wife, living abroad and trying to bring her husband back to Canada with her. It's a classic case of a State being overly zealous in following every bracket of the law. Finally, it was the l...

Directive

Firstly, I found the Directive on free movement within the EEA very informative, but do not see any relevance to Valentina's efforts to sponsor her non-canadian husband into Canada. Secondly, from my 1st-hand experience "on the ground", Canada is not concerned with allowing entry to the mother and c...

You are more informed. Although she didn't mention it, I assumed the Mother was born in Canada. By the way, How do we know she wasn't?

ECIS- UKBA Rights of Movement

Dear 86ti: After checking your recommended reading, I see by sec. 3.0-3.4 of the Rights of Movement of EEA Nationals, that a person claiming "self-sufficient" has NO right to benefits of any kind and must have private insurance. And, that also holds true for one claiming to be a "jobseeker". He is s...

Candidates

Dear Fysicus. I think the grass always seems greener on the other side. Unfortunately, it seems to me that the better the climate-the worse the health care. As I am trying to do, have you figured out how your health care will be covered? You can strike Italy from your list of candidates especially i...

EHIC card

P.s.. Yes the EHIC card was issued in italy. I get the impression that these cards are for use as visitor/tourist only, and that any charges to the card are reimbursed to the health provider (hosp. or GP) by the origine State of the card. (where it was issued) And that, in the UK at least, a local N...

health care

After reading a few pages on the Dept. of Health website and UKBA, I get the impression that as long as a person has the "right of residency", which an EEA national would have, health care is free, provided a person can prove ( to the hospital or to GP ) his "intent" to live permanently in the UK.

legal status

I have taken early retirement, too early for a pension, but financially self sufficient. By legal status I meant (excluding voting rights), things like access to health care, obtaining a new driver's license. In a year or so, both my EHIC health card and Italian driver's license will expire. Can I o...
