  1. Some advice please. I have been renting the house I live in for 2 years now.

  3. Thanks for the replies. What would be fair to claim as costs? I will have had no access to money for 5 days - what can I claim? £5 a day, £10 a day? Does anyone have any thoughts on that? Or are there any cases I could refer to? Thanks
  4. To be brief, my council tax bill was handed over to Bristow & Sutor earlier this year. I came to an agreement with the council to pay a sum of £72 per month. I didn't pay for 3 months because of illness and being reduced to SSP. Simply put, I couldn't afford to pay. At the beginning of this month, I wrote to b&s and explained why I hadn't paid and sent them a postdated cheque for £72.00. The cheque was dated 28 September 2010. On Thursday, I had the embarrasment of my debit card being declined at a shop for the paltry sum of £4.20, checking my bank statement, I saw that the cheque

  7. Can someone please give me some advice. A Removal of Goods notice was delivered this morning and handed to my wife by a Jacobs Bailiff. It claims a parking offence on 02 May 2009. I have not had a parking ticket on my car for over 3 years now. I have not received any correspondence about this at all. I moved house on 29 June last year and updated the DVLA a few weeks after that. This notice served today even has my old address on it! The amount claimed is for a staggering £308.08! Obviously I no intention of paying this and would ask for advice on how to appeal this extortion. Also
