  1. Hi guys, I was involved in a RTA yesterday whilst at work delivering goods for my employer. Witnesses have informed my employer, the police and insurance company that it was not my fault as the other vehicle drove straight into my lane causing me to slam on the breaks. After a couple of 360's across the dual carriageway the van finally came to a stop after thumping the barrier and skidding 100 yards down the road on the drivers side. Unfortunately myself and witnesses never got the registration of the other vehicle who was probably oblivious to what they had caused! After a visit to A&E yesterday and the my GP this morning I have been signed off work for 1 week due to contorted muscles and general painful bumps and bruises (nothing too serious thankfully)! I can find nothing in my contract about sick pay due to an accident at work and im wondering if I will be entitled to full usual wages, statuary sick pay or claim loss of earnings from my companies insurance? Any advice much appreciated, Thanks.
  2. would they do that though ray? When they went to visit him they said it was not a criminal offence so would they accompany me?
  3. Hi all, My current situation has been covered here: http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?376545-landlord-issues-rent-arrears&p=4152141#post4152141 My question is this: how would i sue ex landlord in tort interference with goods? After leaving the property on correct date (almost 4 months ago)following s21, we left a couple of items in the property and told landlord about them. he said he would be in touch as to when we could collect. A few days later landlord said "you can have items back when i recieve arrears" (£125). The full deposit amount is in dispute with DPS. I now know he is breaking the law holding my possesions in lieu of monies owed. At first i was told by landlord via txt message that he sold items to help with "the large hole i left in his pocket", but after i called the police and reported this as theft, they paid him a visit and apparently the txt was to try and "shake me up" to pay the £125 arrears. The fact that he actually has not sold items means it is not a criminal offence but a civil one. My question is how would i go about taking him to court to have items returned? Value of goods around £300 so would the costs of going to court be worth it? and how much extra damages could i claim against him if i were to sue. thanks in advance.

    Child trust fund

    i Dont know if anyone can help here. I have been searching the internet but cannot find any answer. our son recently died and im having a hard time finding the account provider of his CTF to close the account. We never used the voucher ourselves and we did recieve a letter stating that the £250 had been automatically put into an account by the government but we cannot find this letter anywhere. There is a helpline number that is now closed that says to go to the GOV website but there is no help on there whatsoever. Has anyone else ever had this problem and recovered the account? thanks in advance
  5. So im between a rock and a hard place ? I personally believe he can not justify the quotes given to me. Fully redecorate is surely betterment? We were there 18 months 2 adults and 3 children (down to 2 6 months ago when our son died) I dont think he understands the meaning of wear and tear! Court here we come
  6. Ok yeah maybe i am ranting a bit and to be honest after reading this and other sites i think it might be good to go to court. But how do i initiate the dps own dispute system ?
  7. Its not a whole house worth only 2 rooms according to check out inventory.
  8. Right guys thought id start this on a new thread (hope thats ok) Quote recieved from landlord fully redecorate property inc: woodwork, doors and ceilings - £350 Full clean including steam clean / deep wash carpets - £199 caulk all edges and frames / re seal bath / repairs to skirting and woodwork - £75 remove all rubbish / goods left on property £99 total - £723 (waiting for further written quotes) Unbelievable !! Surely to fully re decorate would be classed as betterment ? We had the living room professionally cleaned the day we left £26. The cleaner told us the carpet is a good few years old and there is no underlay so any stains will just stay in carpet or rest on concrete. we told him we couldnt take the swing set in the garden and he said he would let me know a convinient time to get it and rubbish in the garage we will take to the tip. He has not stated what woodwork needs repairing or where this damage is and more importantly there is no reference on our inventory to the condition of (whatever it is ) from the move in.
  9. No we never took photos unfortunately ! We also never signed the inventory and sent it to landlord at start of tenancy
  10. to call it a dump when we left is just insulting. Yes there are a few marks on the walls and we didnt clean the oven. Carpets have been professionaly cleaned . Also the photos were taken well before we moved in. I went to the letting agent and they could not provide me with a date they were taken. They have photos of the garden etc. when we left but no move in photos to compare it too
  11. This is the shocking txt i received today. I have asked for a breakdown of prices for the ridiculous decorative pricesi i told him i will collect these from his house but he said if i go near any of his propertys he will call the police !!!
  12. I have report from letting agent and have inspected the place my self. You moved into a lovely well kept, well decorated house and moved out 18 months later leaving a filthy disgusting stinking dump. To return the decorating to it's previous condition will cost £725 to repair other items is £400 you also owe £125 in unpaid rent. You have 7 days to pay £1250 or I will take legal action.
  13. Well this is odd i have been looking through the inventory and there are some blatant mistakes such as beige carpet in hallway when it has always been laminate and spot lights where there are just normal bulbs ?? And many more. The letting agent has told me their are photos of before and after we rented the property but how can i be sure the photos were taken before WE moved in and not the previous 2 tenants that we know of ? Starting to think im never going to see any money back from him !
  14. an update guys. We have now moved out of the property on 9th feb. landlord asked his letting agent to come and do a pre check out inspection. The letting agent told us we should patch up the holes drilled in the walls and paint over some of the stains on the wall which we did. He also said the broken tile is wear and tear ! So we applied for our deposit repayment on sunday. We were 125 in arrears when we left. The status of the deposit is "awaiting landlord response". Is there a timescale he has to respond within or could we be waiting for ages for it to be returned ? Thanks for the help
