  1. Just checked it. It says that I may be required to work in excess of my normal working hours. I suppose I'm screwed then, but that wasn't what was told to me in the interview.
  2. Hi everyone, I'm hoping all you knowledgable folk on here can offer your assistance . I started a part time job last year. During the interview, I explained that I was looking for part time hours to enable me to pursue a hobby, which I also get paid for, not much but I do it because I love it. I don't claim any credits or anything like that, money isn't everything to me. They were receptive to this and liked hearing about it. They also explained to me that sometimes they may ask that I do some overtime during heavy workload periods, not often, just an hour or so here and there, which
  3. Ok. A) The LA told us to contact the maintenence man, as the LA is only run by one man and he's told us that it isn't his first job and spends all his time abroad. B) Clearly, the LA said that they will blame us for the boiler wearing out and take the money for it, I have it in writing from them, so I'm unsure why you think they don't need to make things up when they already have. C) My wife's text message clearly stated "Under Section 11 of the Landlord and Tenant Act 1985, I would like to negotiate a reduction in the rent for this month due to not having heating or hot water
  4. Hello All, Last weekend, our boiler broke down, late on the Sunday night. I called the maintenence man who deals with these issues for the letting agency first thing on Monday morning. He came over on Monday night and found that the transformer on the circuit board had burned out and killed the boiler. He said it would be a full boiler replacement and he will sort it with the letting agency as soon as possible. In the maintenence man's defence, he is really good, it is the agency who are slow at everything. So, we've spent all week without heating or hot water. My wife sent a text to
  5. Yes, a while ago. I received a letter early February which thanked me for the SAR request and they were gathering the information. I've just received the very little bit of information today and I sent a letter on 13th December reminding them. It's been 66 days since then.
  6. Hi, I have finally received the SAR request from Shop Direct today. I have to say, I expected it to be bigger, it's fit into a standard A4 window envelope. It does not contain most of the things I requested in the SAR. I have a few pages of screenshots, which don't seem to date back to the entire history of the account but do show some letter fees (£12 per letter) and late £12 charges. There are also some printouts of what I'm assuming must be excel spreadsheets pasted into Word and not set to landscape and not aligned. I can't make heads or tails of it.
  7. I don't suppose there's any harm in telling them that I know their game?
  8. I appreciate your advice but how will ignoring them help? It feels like I'm walking straight to court. How about I send Fredrickson a letter asking to see the notice of assignment? If they haven't got one, which they haven't, I can tell them that they are a third party interloper trespassing on private matters. Also, tell them that I am already paying Capital One.
  9. Hi, I have now received the letter from Bryan Carter Solicitors. It says that I must contact Fredricksons within the next 14 days to arrange payment, failing which they will recommend that proceedings be issued against me. It also lists court fees and solicitors costs. The balance on the letter is incorrect and does not reflect the most recent payments made to Capital One via my standing order. What should I do next?
  10. I've been doing some research myself and I wondered if someone could help clarify? If SD have defaulted me because their penalty charges pushed me into the red, then the default can be removed?
  11. Forgive me dx, I'm a natural worrier.
  12. They've only put it in with one statement though, not the others. I don't get it. If I've not paid anything on this one then I must've on the others, except I have paid on all!
  13. Hi, Need some help ASAP. I have received my usual summary from Shop Direct and it has all the latest payment of £1 on it. Inside is another letter, a 'Notice Of Sums In Arrears' stating that I have failed to make the payments! What the heck is going on? This is for the account that they mysteriously defaulted but not the others. Oh and they've added on £44 in missed payment charges from last month to this month! What do I do now. I'm still waiting on a response from my SAR. I know I've paid the £1 per account and can prove it, so what should
  14. Ok. I did think it to be odd. So, just carry on ignoring Fredrickson and continue to pay Capital One as I have been doing?
