  1. Is that the same for housing associations? As I know some rules are different between private landlords & them. They turn up & issue a safety certificate every year after less than 15 minutes of being on site, essentially they run the boiler check the gases & everything else is visual which is why I was querying the fact they didn't even do that last time. The only maintenance done is to change the little screw in filter in front of the boiler they don't even take the cover off in the last 10 years that's the only maintenance they do each year.
  2. Thank you Have wanted to do that, unfortunately cost is the issue it's a min of £150 here off contract that I've found, we live hand to mouth plus have to pay off the budgeting loan to cover removal costs at the moment too, otherwise I'd have done so before now but ESA doesn't go far in the first place minus budgeting loan & bedroom tax & well you know how it is. I've got a tribunal coming up if that's successful might be able to do something then just feel as the landlord it's their responsibility to do this properly, our old property the cert had all the emis
  3. Hi We live in a housing association home, moved in via an exchange in July. When we moved in the oil tank was dry so we had it filled immediately. When we did paperwork for the exchange we were given bundles of stuff one of which was a boiler safety certificate. It was missing all figures for emissions tests just said "N/A". I'm assuming given the previous tenant had no oil there was no combustion test done. I've asked the HA many times since July Inc in person during a visit here & no one ever gets back to me. I wanted to know is the cert valid withou
  4. Hi Elderly 85+ she'd had a Barclaycard on/off for decades. She received 2 cheques from Barclaycard this week both for around £1400. The attached letter say they've sent the average payout as they have records she had PPI on the 2 accounts & the dates, but they do not have any records of what she paid & for what (which sounds like rubbish to me) She doesn't have any records either what do people think, take the money & shut up or take it further? If so what do people recommend next? Thanks
  5. Yeah i'm trying to find something similar now but the Lowell and utility debt thing is a bit rare as I understand it? I'll have a good look round tho, thanks
  6. Not using prove it letter was simply saying that's what i've done previously and they haven't replied at all Went to edit previous post to format it etc and left it too late so apologies that my answers aren't clearer
  7. Right i've now done all of that just got to take letter to the PO but it's otherwise all done as suggested. What's next please? Thanks ever so much you've been great
  8. Ok just waiting for the Gov Gateway email now
  9. Name of the Claimant ? Date of issue –13th March 2019 (only received recently had follow up letter acknowledging mistake their end and deadline is now 11th April 4pm) Date of issue XX + 19 days ( 5 day for service + 14 days to acknowledge) = XX + 14 days to submit defence = XX (33 days in total) - 11th April 2019 16:00 ^^^^^ NOTE : WHEN CALCULATING THE TIMELINE - PLEASE REMEMBER THAT THE DATE ON THE CLAIMFORM IS ONE IN THE COUNT [example: Issue date 01.03.2014 + 19 days (5 days for service + 14 days to acknowledge) = 19.03.2014 + 14 days to submit defence = 02.04.2014] = 33 days
  10. I haven't been an EDF customer since 2014 so guess it would be about then they're chasing from. I never got a final bill from EDF at the time so chalked it up to being OK then didn't hear anything until Lowell got involved a few years ago they've batted about for awhile since then sending letters threatening Last year sometime I wrote back with the prove it letter & they never replied to it just sent more threat letters until court papers arrived today I'll fill all info in Bankfodder requested later when I can get it in front of me quietly. They sent one of their
  11. Hi for a few months now Lowell have been sending the threat type letters to which I replied with the prove it letter to them (twice) which got no reply, haven't heard anything for a few months until today court papers arrive. Whats the best way to deal with this it's for energy from EDF from 2014 they now want about £400 but I couldn't see how we owed so much which was why I sent the prove it letters to them as happy to make arrangements to pay it if the amounts were correct etc. What do I do now? Thank you

  13. Thanks, it was last week I sent it off. I suppose I might get lucky and one of the other scrappies I have contacted might take it without the full V5C
  14. Thank you dx100uk So that's all I have to do in relation to the notice? I told them immediately that the vehicle is not abandoned it's parked awaiting the V5 so it can be scrapped and i've emailed the landowner to tell them the same. Hopefully the DVLA will respond quickly to the V62 and can get this gone. Thank you
