  1. I have been on Universal Credit and Council Tax support since April 2020. I was told, despite being on Universal Credit and a single occupant in my home, I still had to pay a proportion of the Council Tax, which I did ... Then a month or two later I received a cheque for the amount I had paid from the Council Tax. I have just received a council tax bill for this year stating an amount I have to pay ... My question is Do I, on Universal Credit and being a solo occupant still have to pay a proportion of the yearly rate or not. ??/ Thank you xxx
  2. As I'm in the house I have access to all (I think) of most of his documents. What do I need to make copies of and in which years to protect me, if I have to go the legal route, in case if he decides to take them out of the house????
  3. Yes, I had just come back from him when I found the letter. He was very sympathetic and as far as he can be, being happily married, understanding. He is also my husbands doctor so was fully aware of the situation. He offered me counselling which I declined as I loathe crying in front of strangers (tho that didnt stop me yesterday) and a script for an anti depressant, which I accepted but dont think I will fill. Question: Can he divorce me when I have done nothing wrong ?????
  4. I received a letter from a Bournemouth solicitors this morning. I picked it up when I came home from the Docs, filling the car and shopping.My blood ran cold, my vision turned red ... I thought He cant .... Divorce me ... I have done nothing wrong! Is that right?????I sat down and after a hefty gulp or three of my gin I took a deep breath and opened it ... The relief was immense, overwhelming ... It was to do with my Auntie Helen's Estate. She passed away on the 30th April, I went to the funeral on Tuesday (alone) and she had left me the two (valueless) paintings that always capti
  5. News! I have just received an amended council tax bill ... That was quick. Do you think they contacted him and he replied or are just taking my word for it? Whilst a good thing, It sort of makes this horrible situation more real and my heart is breaking ... but no, that does not in any way mean I want him back ... well him from a year or three ago yes, but not the thing he has become.
  6. The mortgage (what there was of it) was paid off a few years ago ( by massively overpaying each month and going without holidays, evenings out, fun etc) and the house is in my name. I shall look into universal credit but was always told, by him, that as I was a 'director' of the company and being 'paid' ... ie the money for the household bills ... I would not be able to claim unemployment. I have however applied for reduced council tax ... I did this a week or so after he left and all I have heard so far was a request for his forwarding address, which I have supplied.
  7. Im very sorry to be posting this but Im getting increasingly worried about my current situation and prospective future and need some real advice. I know you can get a free 30 minutes consultation with a solicitor but am very wary of that route. So the story, are we sitting comfortably then I will begin ..... My husband and I got together in September 2004 (we had known each other many years before at various intervals) He lived in my flat (which I owned outright) and insisted that he pay his fair share of the bill.s I was self sufficient with a part time job ,
  8. Thought I would update you briefly... I returned our letter on the date due, getting a signature on receipt and since then ..... NOTHING! Nada Zero Niente Zilch Bupkiss This woman, who instigates such strict time restraints on our responses to her missives ... is a disgrace!
  9. Sorry edit ...one MONTH after request. Some new edit thing has been added to CAG that limits the time I can edit posts ??!!
  10. Thanks guys. The letter (as of post number 37) went into the HA offices at 9 am this morning.... and I got a receipt for it too. We are talking to the other owner occupiers in the Terrace. Out of 10 houses, 5 are owner occupied, One is HA (they had to buy the end house to gain access to the land ) and the other 4 are rented out. Every single person we have spoken to have responded that they have written tothe HA, unanimously stating that they have never been challenged for parking there, have parked there since the building of *** and before and they have never seen the parking area
  11. Hi there Stunumber 7, ( or is it the names Stu, Stu007 ) What do you think of the letter? Do I need to add those extras you advised or is that for another time ? I need to know because the ridiculously short time limit expires tomorrow (not that the woman has been working last week)
  12. Thanks for that...After your last point I googled the HA and parking permits in our town and came up with some minutes of a local council meeting in September where it was recorded that (and I quote) the HA will set up a permit scheme in *** Court (a block of sheltered housing in the middle of the town) and that any surplus permits after residents have been given theirs will probably be put to the public, however they are still deciding on it. Cllr *** asked for further details that Cllr !!! could not provide at this point But that was the only entry. Their website has a l
  13. We have constructed a letter........ 5th May 2017 FAO Miss *** Neighbourhood Housing Officer RE *** *** CAR PARK Dear Miss ***** We refer to your letter of 28th April 2017. We responded to the original enquiry from your colleague Miss **** confirming our right to park on 28th March 2017. The letter was hand delivered to your offices at ***********. We have received neither an acknowledgement or response. We consider that (HA) are mistaken in the assumption that residents of (Our terrace) have no right to park there, and assert that the onus is on (H
