  1. Could not happen to a nicer guy. He has caused undue trauma to so many innocent people, perhaps he may now appreciate a little of what he made so many suffer. Perhaps MPs may now realise the problems of their ill thought out Digital Economy Act.
  2. It looks like things are hotting up for our Andrew. Perhaps he will start to understand the misery he has caused to so many people. http://www.lawgazette.co.uk/news/solicitor-set-pay-wasted-costs
  3. Thanks for all your help, it is very much appreciated. I think you are right, life is too short to carry on Particularly as it seems to be becoming so surreal!!
  4. As the ex tenant lives in France (she is an American lawyer and the husband is French) it should be interesting to see them sueing us. Particularly as they have done nothing for two years until the agent contacted them. On the other hand I may be old and grey by the time we ever sort it out otherwise, so it may be worth just getting on with our lives and taking the money offered.
  5. We have made good on other damage and cleaning, but had left the cabling until we could sort out the deposit. Perhaps we should just say yes to their offer, as this could carry on for ever, as it does seem that the agents are either telling the ex tenants rubbish who the ex tenants are misunderstanding things or both!! I suppose at least the ex tenant is admitting liability by making an offer.
  6. 1. We haven't a clue what they are talking about on the rent. When we asked the agent he didn't know either but is checking. 2. Also it seems that the quote for the redecorating for £1,400 was nothing to do with us it was for someone else. We never asked for total decoration. 3. The agent was supposed to be performing a full management service, taking a percentage of the rent. 4. Preventing the use of the dispute scheme is totally wrong as well. It is as I explained originally. I should say the person who wrote it (the ex tenant's husband) is French so it may be a misunderstanding. 5.
  7. MrShed, after we sent the letter you suggested regarding going to court it seems to have woken the agents up a bit. We are now talking to a more senior person and he has contacted the ex tenant. We have just received the following from the husband. He fails to understand that they were in breach of contract by not cleaning the house on leaving and also by installing all the Sky boxes etc without permission. Goodness knows what he is talking about regarding the curtains. The last sentence is threatening!! I don't know where we go from here. This is what we got from the agent, I don't know what
  8. Whoops, seems like ACS Law are no longer involved in harrassing innocent people, Andrew Crossley is concentrating on his other customers. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-12275913 http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?291530-ACS-Law-ACS-Law-withdraw-from-ALL-cases-BBC-NEWS dx siteteam
  9. I have just read through what the judge said and it seems that ACS-Law did an appalling job for their client, missing info, incomplete submissions etc. You would have thought that at least AC could have got this bit right, as a solicitor supposedly specialising in this field.
  10. Found Crossley's (or one of his) websites. http://www.wal-sca.com/home a bit of a skeleton though. Strange the only thing he has apart from his address is a link to the SRA!
  11. I see Davenport Lyons are having a hearing with the SRA in March, so ACS Law may be a year away. http://www.legalsupportnetwork.co.uk/index.php/news/details/sra_says_davenport_lyons_lawyers_knowingly_targeted_innocent_web_users_in_a/ It also looks like ACS may have problems if they are fined for Data Protection, if the gravy train has dried up. Does anyone know what has happened to the ACS website?
  12. Looks like our Andrew has had his day in court at last http://www.myce.com/news/acslaw-copyright-infringement-case-ends-in-epic-fail-37579/
  13. The agent did email today to say she is holding onto the deposit until told to give it up by the courts. So I was wrong about her giving it to the tenant. It amazes me as it is not theirs to keep. I do suspect that she is actually not terribly competent. Will keep you updated, the letter went out to them today asking for the deposit by 15 November.
  14. Will let you know what happens next!! Thank you so much for all your help, you have no idea how much it is appreciated.
  15. O sounds good. I have a strong suspicion, although I may be wrong, that the agent will just send the deposit back to the tenant. I can't believe that we were their client and we were the ones who weere paying them. I suppose all the agent wants is to be rid of it, as they are not making any money out of it.
