  1. I haven’t been in here for such a long time, but I was able to guess who would respond and how! no wonder this site has such a terrible reputation now, which is a shame because that then detracts from the great work the Ellen et al carry out. DX & BF I’m disappointed, but in no way surprised that you carry on with your approach. I will check back in another year or so, and when I do I bet the only things that have changed are the amount of people coming to you for help. you guys rock, you really do.
  2. Posts crossed. Well done, and I bet you are pleased you rang now. Relax, chill out and blinking back of the net.
  3. Instructed does mean it's going for eviction, that's way they haven't said may instruct. Anyway, all this isn't helping this man, neither is '...you have been told not to...' Try to stay calm, it's not over yet. Please let us know what they say. Just stay strong, I'm sure El or HB will be around soon.
  4. Try to stay calm, DX is right that it is not what the court order said. Please do not start the cycle of feeling down, this terrible company can say what they want but the only way they can seek possesion is if you miss a single FULL payment. So relax.
  5. Apologies DX, just so you can understand, I will put it anotherway. ...although its not relevent to this case, modern systems are easy to scan through IF you know the time/date. Better?
  6. Whilst I agree to forget about it, its’s not true about the access to CCTV. All they have to do with modern systems is input the time and date and in a matter of moments the staff will have the footage on the screen. I would be surprised if M&S do not have a high end system. My house system has this function and it cost 150. If M&S don’t have this function they deserve every thing they get.
  7. If it is a ultrasonic sensor issue you should be able to disable this function. Not ideal but at least you will be able to lock it. There's usually a button in the car on the drivers side. It's a worth a look.
  8. Dig deep buddy, and remember don't ever EVER be late with one single payment. I don't think there would be another chance for you. Just remember how well you are doing.
  9. And in the meantime you advise not to contact them and ignore emails? Great stuff.
  10. He says he owes it. PAY what you owe. So what’s the advise now “..only pay it if they can find you and pin you down”? You will be telling him to blindly try a chargeback next ! ( you know, just in case he maid a payment by visa debit) So so what is the official CAG stance on paying debts then...come on DX, I would love to hear it
  11. He he says he can pay it. When end will you be stopped from advising people to avoid paying their debts, or is this now the official line of CAG? It is certainly not what CAG was set up for. So so the official line is “Only pay what you owe if there is legal recourse”?
  12. Which bit is negative, did you not have the offer on the table of leaving at the end of January and then you did something that made the landlord retract that offer and want you out...do you class that as being successful? I feel you may think that you are in some kind of position to negotiate. You were and then now you are not. The LL has served you with the required documents and that is all he is required to do BEFORE he serves you a section 21. It will not void one served after the required documents. It is a shame you see my advice as being negative, I wish you well.
  13. It can’t be less than 2 months and does not mean they can turf you out at the end of the notice, they would then have to go to court. Get advise on how valid the notice. If it is invalid I would wait to go to court then they would have to serve another notice and another eight week wait. As for negotiating, you tried that and you went from the end of January with that month free to having to be out on the 21st of December. Either he is not to be messed with or negotiation is not your strong point.
  14. I have just taken five mins to read your posts on the other site. You have been given clear advice but you keep asking the same question. I wish you well, however, I am out.
  15. There are no reasons why he can serve you a section 8 and even if he did, he could not come around and kick you out after two weeks. He would then have to court and if you did not come under any of the statutory reasons then he would have to argue his case. To terminate a fixed term tenancy, landlords need to use one of the common mechanisms, if any of them applies: Serve a section 21 eviction notice with a date taking effect on the last day of the fixed term and a minimum of two months between the date it is served and the date it takes effect Serve a section 8 eviction notice if
  16. In that case, then I would today just try and negotiate with him. It is within his best interest to have someone in there until he sells, there is no point in having an empty rental. As for the rent, no it would have to be the equivalent of 2 months for a statutory eviction and then it would have to go to court and then the court would have to give you notice. Try to talk to him, you want to leave but not until January. He had offered a free month so see if he will put that back on the table.
  17. The information is in the links provided. Is it a case of you are refusing to pay him or you won't? Has he served you notice to leave of the 22nd, and very importantly, is he expecting you to leave? The most important thing to remember is that he just can not come round and kick you out, any eviction would have to go through the court system and that could take time to get to that point, certainly after Christmas, but then think about your reference. However, you must remember that this is not going to be a permanent solution, he will get you out. If I was him and all my duck
  18. DO NOT WITHHOLD RENT I thought that you understood not to do that, you have just put him in a better position. You could also anger the agency, who have no obligation to do anything for you. I am sure the experts will be along, but in the meantime, it would help if you could clearly state how long you have left on the agreement and have you missed or been late with any other rent payments. If I was you I would be paying that rent and at least be pretending to be sorry, however, I am not an expert.
  19. What would your punishment be if you had been caught once? Not five points. What would the punishment be if it had been 3 incidents of killing two horses? It is what it is, you can carry on being angry if you want but it will still be the same. I'm a Paramedic Rapid Responder with an unblemished driving record until I was caught doing 36 in a 30 when I got 3 points, because I was doing 36 in a 30. As my 12 year old daughter said to me at the time "suck it up, Buttercup"
  20. Please DO NOT withhold your rent, in fact don't think about that again. If you were to do so then you will just place your landlord in a better position to get rid of you. IF it was me I would resign for another 12 months because if he does sell then you are in a great position to negotiate an early release from the agreement. If there is no rent outstanding and/ or regular missed payments I do not believe he will be able to use Section 4 to get rid of you. If he does sell its going to be with you as sitting tenants, for the remainder of the tenancy anyway. That will give the some breath
  21. Great advice from the team. I am glad it looks like you might have a solution, if not please come back and do be put off by the replies you have received. Most people try their best to help.
