  1. If you sign the new agreement, you will be safe from section 21 eviction for the duration of the agreement, if you don't, they can issue a section 21 at any time. So in effect, signing will make you more secure for the next 6 months at least..
  2. Just a quick update.... yesterday after me hasseling the bank lots, I finally got my cashback for this booking.
  3. They have written back and said they cannot offer a refund at the moment.. The chargeback is still in progress, but there are a lot of them being done, so may take a few weeks. Can the hotel stop the chargeback?
  4. My wifes name is on the booking.. I phoned up and paid by debit card
  5. The cheeky buggers wrote to my good lady as they have her email address, and enclosed a pdf voucher .. She has promptly written back, sayin, as my husband said yesterday, a full refund is wanted. Is this a way of trying to get out of the charge back??
  6. Hello, in a nutshell, in January we booked 2 rooms in a hotel in Brighton for 19th -21st May (just gone) the hotel was closed so they could not let us stay. In April we asked for a refund (twice by email) and were ignored completely. So on 12th May I checked their web page which still stated they were closed, and once again asked by email for a full refund. No reply. I have contacted my bank for a chargeback yesterday, and hey presto today the hotel replied to my 12th May email and offered me an accomodation voucher for the next 12 months. I have replied it is not acceptable and want a full refund. Am I correct in being able to demand a full refund? I know it is not the hotels fault, but neither is it mine, and I cannot go in the next 12 months. Where do I stand? Many thanks...
  7. Yes. he called me yesterday to tell me that the 2nd charge had been cancelled as well, So good news all round. I wonder if CPP read on here and realise that they will not get far if they try to push it?
  8. Well some good news, CPP have cancelled the shorter time frame charge, but I am still waiting to hear about the first charge
  9. Cheers, the ntk letter was dated 19th december yes HB he will have admitted he was driver both times
  10. He did the appeal on line, and only received the standard we are looking into it reply I am getting things as fast as I can, but my dad is in the midlands and I am down south, also his short term memory is buggered so continuity is not the best here is the ntk notice dad ntk.pdf he cannot find a copy of his appeal

  12. I will put full details up later, but in a nutshell my 80 year old father had 2 tickets in the same day from CPP at Walsgrave hospital for not buying a ticket. It was in 2 different cars, the first charge was for just over 2 hours parking and the 2nd was for 36 minutes. In brief he had to take my mother over to the hospital from Nuneaton hospital, and on arrival they spent 21/2 hours in A&E, before my mother was admitted, when my father came out it was dark and he could not get the machine to take his debit or credit card, he then drove home and in his confusion got totally lost (6 miles is the distance) so he had to go back later the same evening to take some things for my mother and took her car as it has a sat nav, again he could not fathom out the ticket machine. 3 days later he got 2 charge notices with photos (very grainy) he has appealed and it seems to have been rejected (surprise surprise) and he has been told to pay the £100 for each before 16th Jan (usual threat o gram), now obviously he has not paid the charges, but he also did not have tickets, is there anything that he can do to at least get the shorter time one taken away? I will put up the proper details when I get chance to redact the documents. Cheers
  13. I agree but it is the Landlord who pays for the job, and the inspectors (in this case me) have to do as we are paid to do.Your only recourse is to refuse the inspector access. However if you do that, do not be surprised to find a notice to leave the property at the Landlords first available opportunity
  14. I have to do property visits as part of my new work (inventory clerk, I am getting on a bit for carpet cleaning now), and I spend on average 10 minutes in the house, but unfortunately I do have to take a photo of each room, but as I tell the tenant, I have to do it, but will do my best not to include any personal items such as photo's etc. Obviously if there are any problems with the property I take a bit longer and have to photograph the problem such as mould etc, but in general, I am very polite and apologetic because neither of us wants me there, and am as quick as I can be. Unfortunately the letting agents does these as they have to justify the management fees to the landlords, and the photo of each room is to prove that each room has been visited.
  15. Ignore the name of Carpet cleaners, I am now and independant inventory clerk, and do check in/out and inventories for letting agents.. We always give the tenant the choice of being there at the check out, but it is not essential, the only form we get the tenant to sign on the day is the cleaning form, we then go round and do a compairson to the check in inventory. So to answer your question ..... no it is not normal to ban the tenant from the check out, but the process is now designed so that you get the report after 3-5 days, and then have the dispute process if you disagree with anything, nothing is quick these days.
  16. What is normal after having pets in a property is to have the carpets professionally cleaned, and have the carpet cleaner use a flea treatment solution. this ensures that any eggs etc are neutralised, and has always historically been good enough for any end of tenancy... Just make sure that the cleaner marks it on the receipt that flea treatment has been included.
  17. Agreed, but the op wants to stop the LL showing potential TT round whilst he is out... and is well within his rights to dissallow the LL to do so, and if the LL will not stop doing so, then TT is within rights to stop this. also this method is better than TT's dog being destroyed for attacking the LL and viewers.
  18. Why not?? it is not against any law, in fact it is what all tenants should do as soon as they move into a new property..
  19. Alternatively you can change the locks until you leave and then change them back.. That way no one can enter whilst you are not there, and if they ask why you have changed them, you know that they have tried to enter without permission.
  20. The property is still your home until you hand the keys in.. and no matter what is in the tenancy agreement, you do not have to let people into your home when you are not there... If the agency is getting shirty I would change the locks and not let them have the key. Tell them what you have done, and tell them that the locks will be change back at the end of the tenancy. Provided you that and don't damage the lock in any way, there is nothing that any one can do about it. Tell them that anytime you are in is fine....
  21. ahhhh so... in that case then, the temporary changing of the locks will stop all of their shenanigans....

  23. The first question has to be, were there any inventories done either on your moving in, or moving out?
