  1. Can anyone advise if this should be moved to another forum which may be seen by those with knowledge of legal stuff, maybe one which addresses small claims?
  2. The CSA called me over a year ago to ask if I wanted to write off a debt owed by my now adult children`s father from many years ago. I said I didn`t want them to considering he had managed to escape paying anything for the 14 years that he should have been. My children suffered hardships as a direct result of his (Quote) "I`m not giving you money to make your life easier" attitude. There was one period where they assessed him before he left the job and went self employed. They said they had his new address and would chase it up with him by letter. Now I have received a letter saying
  3. Thank you. I wasn`t missed, you answered and very comprehensively. I havn`t had an email back from them, so I will see what happens. I had poor service from PO previously with a car insurance so not keen on their offer which is quite an increase in price.
  4. My cheap landline deal has gone from Primus to Fuel Broadband now received an email to say it is sold to PostOffice and the price will increase. I had a look on the web and an equivalent cheap deal is supplied by `Naims`- (£11.50 pm +vat) I had an online form to fill out, no payment details to put in yet but the site was very basic. I only want a landline because I have to, I make maybe one call every few months if my mobile signal is bad. Anyone else use Naims?
  5. Are you sure that`s right? As I understand it the legal owner is the only one who can sell it. The keeper is responsible for it but you can`t sell something you don`t legally own.
  6. I think I would be inclined to ring your union main office and say you need to speak to someone who knows more about employment law.
  7. The flat above theirs is owned by the council. Newmoses has bought their flat from the council previously. Personally I would enlist help from my local councillor. The tenant above is obviously breaking the terms of their tenancy by damaging the property, which is cause for eviction but if the council are following the legal steps that they should (i.e.writing to them and asking to gain entry) They have to go through a process which can end in them taking tenant to court but it takes time. I would have thought suing would be costly to you and would not get you any further if the counc
  8. Thanks for that information. I think that one issue of disrepair does not breach the decent homes standard and because they are going to repair they are doing their bit. It just seems a waste of money to do that now and then rip it out and replace the lot in 2017.
  9. Hi. (Re: local authority) I`m confused about the decent homes standard. After searching for details on the web, it seems there is a conflict between the recommendation for a new kitchen; is it 20 years or 30? The maximum limit seems to be 30 but even on the gov website it seems to say 20 in some places. My kitchen is falling apart in places, they are saying that they will replace some units, missing drawers, taps, worktops and broken floor tiles. Of course they wont be able to match them up and I told them that I wasn`t happy and this was just a bodge up. We are disputing when the kit
  10. And just to reply to greasmonkey`s point, I did sent the chief exec an email about a year ago when they doubled the monthly (or daily for those that pay that way) charge. I pointed out that it was a lot of money for a health care worker or a domestic to pay and the equivalent of someone on the top salary scale paying hundreds of pounds a month. He sympathised but wasn`t getting into differences in pay and the Trust needed to raise money! I had pointed out that I lived a long way from work, no buses where I live and no alternatives at 6:30am (when I usually set off) but to use a car. Yes I
  11. Yes it is a private parking company acting on behalf of my employer. I think these lot have been employed on a piece work basis judging by the amount of yellow and black tickets I have seen on cars in the last few weeks.
  12. Hi. I pay £36 a month to park at work in a hospital (around a mornings wage for me). I have a pass which is displayed in the screen. Parking is so scarce that if you arrive after 7am you find it hard to find a space. Hence there is a bay for people who have to do a late shift (the notice states 12 onwards but that would make me late for work!). I set off quite early from home in case of traffic problems and on this particular day I was having a meeting before my shift with ward Sister so got there for 10:30. when I returned to my car I had a ticket for £50, reduced to £20 if paid in 10 days.
