Customer: oxfordshire
JA: What steps have you taken so far?
Customer: i handed in my notice yesterday, and gave a week as they told me I was on probation for 6 months. I have a new job to go to but they are now saying I have to give 4 weeks and they have already contacted their solicitor and will sue me… he also told me he has been sitting on a mortgage application request as I’m buying a new house with my partner and will send that back and say that I don’t work there….
JA: Is there anything else the Lawyer should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.
Customer: No

Just what I typed, thank you.

Thanks for your patience and enquiry. I note your request for a call, a colleague of mine should be doing so shortly. I will however give you some assistance here in the meantime.

You are required to give notice even if you are on probation. However, if you do not give the requisite notice,  this is not something for which you would be sued for. I suspect your ex employer has said this out of anger. The most that could happen is that your final month’s salary is likely to be lessened as you would not have worked for the entire period.

It is not unusual for them not to return the mortgage document if you are no longer employed to them. I would recommend simply informing the mortgagor and requesting for the document to be forwarded to your new employers. This is unlikely to affect your mortgage application.

Can I clarify anything for you? I hope I have answered your query in a way that is simple and easy to understand. If anything remains unclear, I will be more than happy to clarify it for you. In the meantime, thank you once again for using our services.
