Default What does DGS/RPP stand for?

Hi

Does anyone know what DGS/RPP stand for in a list of direct debits?

My mum recently died and I am one of the executors of her will. We have to contact all the companies she had a direct debit set up with and we do not know which company this relates to. Does anyone have a clue? (If it helps, this is with the HSBC)

Many thanks for any help offered.

Domestic & General repair & protection plan.

Extended warrantly for white goods, TV, etc?

Search the forum (search tool top right of the screen) for "DGS/RPP" without the quotes for more threads.

Isn't it Domestic and General? Usually be a small payment for a warranty for an electrical item like a washer/cooker. Think they're based in Bedworth, Warwicks. Call them quoting the reference on the d/d.

Unfortunately I'm a few months ahead of you as an Exor - for the same reason. Had online access to my Mum's account .... so things like this were made easier. But her Bank should be able to provide an expanded list of DD Mandates filed on the account ..... if you have any more problems (or suspect there are any annual DDs which don't show from a sweep of just recent Statements)

I'm in the same position. You don't have to contact any companies, you just have to tell HSBC (and take them a death certificate) and they freeze the account. No more DDs can then possibly be taken from it.

Surely you've told her bank?

That's absolutely right. But unless you beat a very rapid path to the door of the originators - the DDs will bounce. And, in my experience, it then becomes far more difficult to resolve issues than if you get in first.

Thanks for all your help guys.

I need to know as the solicitor handing the estate did not recoqnise it, she is dealing with all the asset and liability providers and, therefore, checking out who mum paid any money to. I had already closed the accounts anyway.

You solved the problem, thanks for your help.

Watch out, my wife has just been caught for 173 for so called protection-for a new Stoves oven with a years guarantee!! We did not know that a verbal yes is all it takes for a direct debit to begin;we always thought it took a signature. We had an old oven when we moved but it would not work on arrival. Called out a guy to repair it. beyong repair-recommended that we bought a new Stoves oven which we did. In the process of change over my wife says that she must have said "YES" somewhere to the guy who came to repair it and thus Domestic and General started to take money each month out of my wifes account. She only noticed when the renewal turned up!!! She admits it was her fault, so be warned NEVER SAY YES TO DOMESTIC AND GENERAL or they will set up a direct debit and take your money!
