  1. Thanks for reading and having an input. What should I do about the DCA? I wouldn't have stopped paying rent unless he'd said to. It's all a bit annoying! I'd say my loss is easily at least what he's asking for in rent. I guess proving it is difficult. He's now refused to clear the access until I've paid in full etc. This is the agreement:
  2. Hello, I am in pretty desperate need of advice! I rented a unit to use as a photography studio around 18 month ago. When I looked at the unit, there were a few leaks, which the landlord said he would repair, but never did. I carried on paying rent, but not using the unit as a studio, more of a storage space, as the leaks prevented me from having my equipment set up. Fast forward to December (my dad was incredibly ill and passed away in the August of last year, so all of the unit leaking and not being able to use it went right to the back of my mind) the land
  3. Hi, Not sure if this is the best sub forum for this but here goes. A relationship ended last year during July. The girlfriend and I had a joint account which had around £2500 in when we split up. Foolishly, I left that money there until a few months ago. I rang the bank to close the account and transfer the remaining funds. The bank informed me that the other name on the account had emptied it into her bank account in October. The partner did not work due to disability and my wages were the only source of income, therefore I kind of feel a bit cheated. Especially as the funds were the r
  4. Not yet, just the complaints person dealing with it has indicated that the matter of compensation will be discussed after we're back in possession and happy with the work. He has confirmed that there will at least be some compensation though.
  5. Thanks to all for the advice! The bit I'm having trouble with is putting a price on inconvenience. Like even how many zeroes is a reasonable figure? Insurance haven't offered an amount yet, just trying to be a little bit prepared for when they actually come up with a number. At the minute they're concentrating on delivering the vehicle back and us being happy with the repair.
  6. Ah! Thank you. I did try in FF and IE, but both were the same. Might be my work's firewall.
  7. Due to that being really difficult to read, pastebin link that's a fair bit easier on the eye:http://pastebin.com/XeM29czg
  8. Short version: Had a non-fault accident 12 months ago, garage/insurance communication has been really poor and led to various delays and hickups, insurance is now returning the car fixed and is offering compensation and is certain we will be able to settle the matter without the financial ombudsman needing to become involved.Long version: Bit of a weird one this. Basically had a car drive into the back of us nearly 12 months ago. Car is a classic car insured on a classic policy.The rear required straightening out, a few bits replacing and re-finishing. The garage the insurance took the ca
  9. Sorry I didn't reply sooner! Thank you very much for the offer of further help should we need it and you are very generous in your offer. For the moment, we're happy to accept the outcome and put it to bed. We are happy that we could win this outright though, concentrating on the point above. We maybe did too much defending of the condition of the flat as opposed to highlighting the fact the landlord waived his right to retain any moneys when he failed to lodge the deposit with the TDS. Not heard anything from the court yet. Court in question was Pontefract County Court.
  10. Ok so: Judge awarded them £400 towards decorating, due to the mold being caused by us fitting and using a dishwasher and 'my lifestyle'. (Other party claimed that we never had the windows open at all during our entire 9 month tenancy and the judge believed them) Awarded £100 for cooker and fridge cleaning. (We admitted we'd forgotten to clean the cooker, but fridge was never claimed for anyway) Awarded £38 for missing fridge door shelf, despite it never being fitted when we moved in. Awarded £87 for changing flat door lock and supplying 3 keys. Obviously gave us the deposit + 3
  11. Last couple of questions: How do we structure what we want to say? Do we start off with everything that we are claiming for broken down into value of each item, why we are claiming, our defense to the counter claim or what? How do we actually make sure we cover everything, without sounding greedy and lingering on the 'how much we are claiming for' bits? Would i start with stating why we think we have a case for sueing for TDS breach and go into ins and outs and then at the end state what it is exactly we are claiming for? And then once that is cleared up, go into why we think the cou
  12. That's put a big smile on my face Lawdoctor. Thanks for the support and we owe you a big one for your advice. You have been a massive help, as has everyone who has replied has to be fair. I just want today to be over so we can just get stuck in.
  13. Thanks Lawdoctor. We'll be having a last 'tot up' this evening. We are also travelling approx 130 miles to the court, due to our new address being some distance away from the old place. Do we ask for that or are we then sounding like we're taking the Michael? On the hours spent thing, what is a reasonable amount to say? I'd have thought it is at least 20 as this whole business is something neither of us knew much about at all prior to it. But at the end of the day, I'd rather not ask for anything rather than sound like we're trying to milk them dry! Anyway, Landlord filed his pa
