  1. The prevous post was only the penultimate Last Post (do i get a prize?)
  2. Now that i am no longer working for a claims management company, can i get my PM ability back please?
  3. Got another job - (back into nursing) and now at least have an income. Looking increasingly likely that the company will go under so I think its just lesson learned. Thanks for all help and advice
  4. Thanks bookie - good advice. I actually managed to do a little freelance programming work so I made a bit of cash so now solvent again. but next month.... Considering taking these jokers to court for the outstanding - anyone got any comments?
  5. Update to this scenario They have finally decided how much they are going to pay me - but are claiming they have no money - and may pay me something on friday - or may not. I am now in trouble with bills and bank charges backing up and threatening calls coming through I should have been paid on the last day of june - they gave me just enough to cover my rent - they still owe me nearly 3k but by the time this is paid a good portion of it will be swallowed in charges and default fees. What can i do?
  6. The company WAS limited - but I never had any form of written contract
  7. First I must apologise for the length of this post - I have a couple of issues I need to ask about. 1 I started work for a claims managment company some 3 years ago - I was employed to get claims and process them in almost a sales and sales management role (initially I had a branch of the company in south wales as I was a friend of the owner of the company - i was also given a share in the company)- I noted the difficulties with the computer system, and so initially in my own time I began to start to write a computer system to ease this process. About a year on - I was still working on this computer system, still outside of office hours and my "partner" suggested as things were getting tough - that we consolidated operations, i move to Manchester - and we set up an office there - where I was employed to manage the computer system. Not only the web based system that I was writing but the office system, all the computer hardware and software and basically anything that needed power to work (telephones fax printers franking machine) were my responsibility. I continued to develop my program until about 2 yrs ago - the company started to use it. I still continued to develop this softward - more in work time but since I had other duties ( and these were many and varied) I still continued to write at home (also less interruptions) until last month - when I decided I had had enough of this company (for reasons I will not go into ) and resigned. Now 2 questins 1 Who owns the intellectual property of the computer software I spent the last 3 years developing - the company claim it is theirs as I developed it whilst being paid but I maintain that I put in a good deal of work outside of work hours. also I am still awaiting my final pay - and my ex partner is avoioding my cfalls- says he will call me back and then doesnt. as most people do I live on a month to month basis and because I have not been paid at the due date - I am starting to get charges as direct debits are returned. can anyone advise And as a final note to the site team (if any are looking) - since I am no longer (and will never again) work in the claims managment industry - can I have my pm capablilty back please..... Thanks for looking. FD
  8. If you have a 12 month AST then the landlord cannot evict you before the contract ends unless you are in breach of contract. His right to evict you with 2 months notice only begins after the contract ends and becomes a statutory periodic tenancy. I would advise your friend to go to the CAB or SHELTER for proper advice on this.
  9. if the AST is rolling over onto a statutory periodic then your friend only needs to give a months notice to quit and do so. tell the letting agent to stick their fees where the sun dont shine.
  10. I would ask for a copy of the refrerence. (you can SAR them if necessary) If they are saying something in the reference that is detrimental to you and is not true you may have a case against them for defamation, however this is a costly and difficult road to travel Personally I would try another letting agent and see if you can get references elsewhere.
  11. My opinion is that there is nothing that you can do. They are merely covering their bases by using the legal registered name and then the current name. This prevents the defendant simply avoiding a suit by simply saying that the papers were addressed to the wrong person. Especially if the suit is regarding something prior to the name change - they have to establish the link between the two identities.
  12. Sorry Ray but that is not the case - any case that can be tried by indictment at court which DOES include theft - petty or not.
  13. Section 24A of PACE says that a citizen can arrest (a) anyone who is in the act of committing an indictable offence; (b) anyone whom he has reasonable grounds for suspecting to be committing an indictable offence. or if the offence has already been committed (a) anyone who is guilty of the offence; (b) anyone whom he has reasonable grounds for suspecting to be guilty of it. BUT this is ONLY IF... it appears to the person making the arrest that it is not reasonably practicable for a constable to make it instead. OR it is necessary to make the arrest to prevent the suspected offender (a) causing physical injury to himself or any other person; (b) suffering physical injury; © causing loss of or damage to property; or (d) making off before a constable can assume responsibility for him. Where they have no intention of handing the arrestee over to the police - any form of total restraint would constitute unlawful imprisonment.
  14. The guarantee is just an addendum to the contract (I signed guarantor underneath the tenants signature.) There was a definate termination date to the contract which is one reason I signed. I was not intending to be bound ad-infinitum.
