  4. That date is fine for me to be out of the property on, although the Letting Agent only open half a day in the morning. It's unlikely I could move everything out of the house and be back in town to give them the keys by the time they close. Does that have an impact on things?
  5. Ah, thanks for clearing that up. The start date was the 21st June and runs for six months, so that would take the end of the fixed term to the 21st December? I've worked on this as six instances of the 21st day in the following months, rather than 182.5 days which I assume is the correct way to do this? By doing this I informed in my notice that vacating the property over the weekend directly before the 21st. That's correct?
  6. Is there any reason why the Housing Act 1988 is being used instead of the Housing Act 2004?
  7. Hi, I'm coming to the end of an Assurted Shorthold Tenancy that lasted six months, and I've given notice to my landlord that I will not be renewing my contract and I will be vacating the property at the end of the period. The contract was signed in June and states it is for a fixed period of six months, although no end date has been stated in the contract. In the contract, there is no provision for the requirement of written notice to be required. The letting agency have said that under the Housing Act of 1988 that I am required to give 30 days notice and as such, I will be liable for rent until the 30th day of notice. The notice was only given today in writing. The letting agent has informed me that an AST automatically is a rolling tenancy to protect the landlord from having empty rooms in the property and losing out on money. Since I'm not staying beyond the fixed term then why should I be liable for rent? I'm moving out on the date I've told them as I've arranged with my new landlord to move in and paid what's required to move in. I was expecting that come the date of the end of the fixed term that I would be able to move out and not cause a problem. It is a shared house but individual contracts, ie no joint and several terms included in mine. Why is it my problem if the Landlord is losing money for having an empty room? The notice I will have given will be ten days. Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks
  8. I'd seriously consider whether it is worth replacing the clutch if you're running into hundreds of pounds, you're going to be spending more on the car than it's actual value.
  9. Contacting Capital One is going nowhere, no one knows who I should speak too. The courts have said that they can set the judgement aside and issue it correctly, but I can bank the cheque and then write to them to let them know that I have accepted full and final settlement. I really do want to talk to someone in Capital One to keep them updated but it's so frustrating
  10. You could try calling OFCOM on 020 7981 3040 to see if they'll be able to take it onboard, or at least give you some advice on how to deal with it.
  11. Right guys, both good, good and bad news. Firstly, I applied for Judgement by Default because they hadn't filed a defence. I filled the form in and made a mistake by bundling my court fees in with the debt claimed, then added them again on the solicitors cost giving me an inflated figure by £65. This has been awarded by the judge and I have my judgement by default on the 9th April. Dated 11th April is a cheque for the original claim, ie the full one, which I have today, however I have judgement by default for more. What should I do?
  12. The main issues are: 1) Opting out just means you won't receive targetted adverts as built up on your profile they hold by IP address of your machine. You will receive adverts as normal, however, Phorm will still record your browsing. 2) What is going to happen to your speeds/connection if Phorm's hardware suffers problems or they do not have the capacity to handle it all, will your ISP have immediate fallback? 3) Phorm will not (only because they cannot realistically) look at HTTPS requests, secure ones that you see a padlock for in your browser. What about other sites which require details but are not SSL, ie webforums like this one? I find it beggars belief that they have got the ok from the ICO because you cannot be identified. People get sued for filesharing after being identified by IP address alone, so I'm failing to see how you could remain truely anonymous under this system.
  13. I don't feel comfortable with this at all. I work a lot from home on a VM connection, mainly email/web based applications but I'm going to have to consider who I actually use as an ISP from now on if I want to keep this perk.
  14. I've just checked the bills and the last reading from Npower was an estimate of 4920 on 05/12/2007, SE started on 01/01/2008 with 5010. Both were estimates. I'd estimate there was some cross over there at least.
