  1. Thank you. Yes the rent £800 is high for me and I have walked away. My query is that isn't LL advertising illegally? Because they wasted my time and I am not sure what other charges they would come up with . Is there a specific trading standards agency I could highlight what I think is illegal and misleading advertising by LL?
  2. Yes , I have communicated by email to say the advert is misleading and the senior negotiator has sent back and email to say that they 'totally understand' and that we could go ahead and negotiate with an offer of £750 with the landlord. I am trying not to give out the whole email correspondence here at this point,
  3. Hi , I went to the viewing having received flat details and the studio was confirmed as that advertised.
  4. Happy New year! Hope you can help. I am just querying if a n estate agent is advertising legally. I was recently in communication with the estate agents Lawson S Stone Coulsdon who currently have a studio flat advertised as £650 per month in the following link https://www.zoopla.co.uk/to-rent/details/53791452 I went to a viewing and was told that the studio was £750. I said this was not the amount advertised and the ' senior negotiator' gave a reason that I find hard to recall now. I was also shown other rooms in the same flat and recognised that photos of the other rooms where also shown in the same advert. I asked for some written confirmation to be emailed to me and received a form to fill in with an asking price of £800. I emailed the 'senior negotiator' to say the price of £800 was not what was advertised and not what I was told at the viewing, however I could consider paying £750 per month as I had indicated it was near my budget. The senior negotiator said that the advertised price of £650 was for another room upstairs but insisted that the asking price was £800 for the studio and that my offer of £750 could be negotiated with the landlord. I have declined to proceed further. Is Lawson & S Stone advertising the studio legally? Thanks in advance.
  5. Hi, I have received a letter from Robinson Way dated 16th July 2019 acknowledging a SB letter I sent them. They confirm that an account they have with me is statute barred and will be closed. Many thanks for your support in the replies to this thread.
  6. Ok, I do have a pension plan with Equitable Life!!! I have just received a letter dated 09th July 2019 confirming the policy. Thanks for all the reassurances from you and the other site team members. Also to the pointer to pension Wise I would otherwise have been needlessly flustered about scams etc. Many thanks!
  7. Lol! thanks ericsbrother! I was hoping for a windfall from a potential frozen pension, but you have brought me back to earth. What knacked me in the first place was that they could do a credit search out of the blue like that! ... and then send me infor without precise policy details.. But I am looking forward to their reply.
  8. Hi, Thanks honeybee13 I have today sent an email asking what polices I have with them and asking why they did a credit search using my details. I have an automated email response saying they will reply within two weeks.
  9. Thanks Andyorch! I will look into this statement 'If you would like further information or would like to exercise your rights, please complete this form'
  10. Hi, Hope you can help. I don't remember joining Equitable Life or giving them my details for their products yet they have sent me two letters and an information booklet entitled 'Introduction to the Scheme' The first letter has my name and address and a reference number on it. The information in the letter says Equitable Life has used a credit reference agency to check my identity. I have checked my credit record and it shows Equitable Life did a search in June 2019 and the purpose was for Anti - Money Laundering’ The second letter they have sent, (in the same envelope as the first letter) is standard with no name address or date and starts off 'Dear' and then a blank space. This letter talks about a proposal to make changes to ‘with - profits policies etc’. In short the letter is making me aware to vote for upcoming changes as if I am a policy holder. Is Equitable Life allowed to use a credit reference agency to make searches on my credit record without my permission? I also feel that making a search in this manner puts a negative influence on my credit record. I am not a policy holder with Equitable Life. Have you got a standard letter I could send to them about this? Thanks in advance.
