  1. Hi all, Thanks for the replies above , they are appreciated. I would have replied sooner but my keyboard went on the blink over the weekend and I've just recieved a new one from the interwebz. Just to clear something up and ask a further question. There is no management company. This is being dealt with by the HA directly. Also, is it right that there is no rush on this? I read somewhere that I have 6 months to challenge/complain. But is that 6 months from the "this is what we plan to charge in April" letter that I just recieved, or 6 months from the
  2. Thanks for the reply. What i am asking is whether its worth carrying on with the emails with this poor admin lad who has probably been told to fob me off (the spreadsheet has everyones bills included on different tabs...data protection oops), or whether I should just send the letter and deal with them "formally". I agree with you the the HA is dividing the costs for all the "maintainence" contracts between the total properties they administer. To quote "The contract we have with ******* is set up so that we pay them an agreed amount each month, we do not receive an invoice for ever
  3. Hello again, I was amazed that I got a really prompt reply from the HA. There were only 2 actual invoices, 1 from the cleaning company for £20 a month, which of course leaves nearly £100 short fall. There was also a comment about contacting them if they didnt think it was being done. Another £110 invoice for a fire extinguisher that can be bought for £30 on Amazon (fitting was extra) Funnily enough, the gardeners turned up at 8:10 am and strimmed down the 1mtr wide strip of flagstones between the front of the property and the road. Ii'm sure this has to be
  4. Thank you. I will ammend my original email, print it and pop it into recorded delivery. I'll up date the thread with any response.
  5. Hello All, Ive been a HA tenant for just over a year , so I'm now an assured tenant. Last year I recieved a list of service charges, which at the time seemed a little off/excessive, but being on a starter tenancy I sucked it up as to not cause trouble. This year however, I would like to dispute some of the charges and I was wondering what the best way of doing it was. I've looked all over the intertubes but there is very little out there. I've emailed the contact address on the letter outlining my concerns, and I'm awaiting a reply, but forwarned is forarmed as they sa
  6. T mobile havent existed in years, I'm not even sure who they are anymore. I'm concerned you think I've been had as other than the person who stole the phone no one has had any money out of me for this alleged debt. I'm also a bit phased that this thread is in mobile phones for some reason. The problem I have is incorrect information on my credit file, that is updated/administered by a DCA. I would have thought either of those forums more appropriate. Paying £10 for a SAr from a defunct company just to tell me what I alre
  7. Cheers. I'm guessing that if I write to Lowells and request they update my credit file, they're not just going to see the light and realize they have been walking the crooked path all this time. Is there anything I can quote that might remind them they have a duty to keep the files in order? BTW, I got a noodle update today that pushed my credit score from fair to poor, the only difference being the Feb default.
  8. mmm, and are there any tactics and strategies to get them to do this? I could give it until Sept when it drops off anyway which was my original plan. However, I'd been working on improving my credit when Lowells dropped the court claim on me so now I'm up for the fight.
  9. Its showing as £450 on the "top line" of the default, but £350 against all the little red "D"s . I tried posting up a snip/screen shot but I cant get it to work S do I send the letter with the quoted info to the credit agencies or do I demend Lowell contacts them and ammends the record? I might even be persuaded to give them a very small amount in full and final settlement. 10% of what they paid the previous DCA, who probably paid T-mobile 10%, should cover Lowells costs. a bout £3.50.
  10. Which I'm guessing shouldnt really show on the default amount.
  11. Discontinued. Lack of knowing who they were suing . Btw, sorry about the formatting, Its copypasta and went wrong.
  12. Hi all, I had a previous success but as Lowell wouldnt let sleeping dogs lie, I dont see why I should. I received a letter from Lowells during my county court fun and games with them, the relevant parts being... "due to non payment the account defaulted on 10/09/11 and was registered on your credit file. The last payment toward your account was for £13 on 10/1/11" The account was for a mobile that was stolen and charges to premium lines in Algeria rung up. I got into an email correspondence with T-mobile where I was originally offered a reduced paym
  13. Is somebody actually going to help me with the actual issue here , or even put it back into the right subforum or are we all going to praise ourselves on our reading comprehension? Its a truth oft repeated, the best way to get help on an internet forum isnt to ask a question but to post the wrong answer and wait for everybody to correct you.
  14. "why did you pay it then?" umm I didnt. I think my post was edited by a mod for some of the daddies special words I used in my hypothetical response to Tmobile. I think I can see the problem. Tmobile offered me a "goodwill gesture" of paying half the original bill if I took out the extended and more expensive contract. I asked that we carry on correspondence in writing, and for some time to research the contract I was being offered (and to research my liability). When I contacted them to say that I would take up the "goodwill offer" they withdrew it, so basically the
  15. In that case can I have it removed from my credit record? or at least have them show it as paid when Sigma bought it.
