  1. I might have misunderstood the definition of senile. I thought it just means that her health and mind is deteriorating. It's not to the point where she can't make decisions but then she is really not 100%. I would say she is 70% of what she was. My advice was the link which I posted. I don't quite understand if that person has committed a crime? Or perhaps that he is just genuinely nice. I'm thinking too much of it and he is just a nice person.
  2. She is old and senile but still a lot smarter than me. I have no interest in taking control of her affairs. I just told her to beware of the person and innocent people don't normally end up on the news!
  3. Oh I see, thanks.
  4. I'm abroad and my mom is senile. She said she found a very nice old gentlemen that has been running errands for her. She has a few properties that she rents out. The guy managed to find my mom(landlord) through city council or land registry. Not sure. I think she said the guy was looking for some investments. Then today I finally got his email address and decided to google him. http://www.federalmanagement.co.uk/add-news/st-albans-director-disqualified-after-diverting-500000/ Is this something to be concern? I don't quite fully understand it. But it seems like the company borrowed money from the bank but he didn't pay the bank off when he made 500k from it. Plus the money seems to be funneled somewhere else? edit: not sure why the topic was changed. But original was : "This guy is probably [problem]ming my mom?"
  5. Okay I went there to inspect the damage this afternoon. They removed part of their fence and replaced it with a wooden door into our car park. They put a skip inside there property but it is impossible to do that unless they move it through the car park. I've logged the case with the local police and they will go and investigate. Although there is no CCTV footage, it is impossible for them to move a skip into their side without trespassing. I'm going to try and reach out to the neighbor landlord again. I'm not even sure if he/she knows what is going on as I haven't been able to get hold of them. I'll ask the tenants to pass the letter on. I don't mind them using the car park but they are damaging the roof, fence, gravel and leaving rubbish around. Then I'll change the pin back so that the builders will continue to access the car park so I can take photos of them and jot down the number plates. The police will come next week and investigate, hopefully they will have enough evidence. If they don't then we will get CCTV installed. I'd prefer to speak to the landlord first as this is a small village. Everyone is fairly friendly and nice. I'm sure he/she doesn't know the builders are trespassing and hopefully if I ask nicely, they still stop breaking into it. If they don't then I'll get an injunction. Thanks for all the advices!
  6. I was thinking of just getting a cheap wifi webcam and put it on the window overlooking the car park. I called the non emergency number and just logged a crime case. I didn't ask them to come over as I didn't see the builders there this weekend. However they have only started building the flats so it will take sometime and I'm sure they will continue to dump the trash in the car park and use our roof to store their machinery. Which is a bit of a problem because the roof is fragile and nearly 20 years old. This would've been so much easier if the landlord just notify us in advance and that they will pay for any damage done to the roof / car park..... We don't mind them using it if they have asked us.
  7. We have a 6 ft metal fence around the car park with a pin code lock on the gate. This car park is solely used for staff. Few months ago our neighbors started building flats/apartment next to our property. Somehow the builders has got hold of our pin code. We told them they are not allowed to use the car park. After several months of using it and leaving trash inside the car park, we have had enough. They were dragging heavy equipment through our roof and trespassing the car park without any consent. We changed the pin code last week and yesterday they broke down the fence. I've contacted the police and they said unless we have caught them in the act or have any evidence to prove that they were the one that broke in, then they can't do anything. What should I do? We tried speaking with the neighbors but they are just the tenants and are unable to pass the landlord contact details to us. I'm thinking of installing a CCTV and then perhaps hire some sort of private parking company to enforce it? I will also try and get photos of them inside the car park. But when we last confronted them about trespassing the property, they laughed and ask what are we going to do about it. They seem to be Eastern European and have very broken English. They said they will get their boss to come over and discuss it with us but he never turned up.
  8. From the seller solicitor?
  9. That's what I'm worried about. I don't want to spend the money and not get the house or have other legal issues.
  10. I might have been deceived or involved in illegal activity? I'm buying a property from an auction . The seller of the property isn't the owner of the property. It is an investment company that has signed an agreement with the real landlord. Their completion date is the same as my contract with the investment company but an hour earlier. The reason I think it might be fraud is because we have dealt with the investment company solicitors in the past. Their solicitors didn't want to say too much but they hinted that they wouldn't deal with that company again and what they are doing is grey area. It sounds to me like they might be evading tax and I don't want to be involved in it? Should I be worried about it? When I spoke with my own solicitors, they didn't seem to worry at all?
  11. We are planning to sell our flat and we know that our neighbors had issue with selling his property. He said the landlord told him that he can't sell it until they refurbish it to a good standard. He then went to his solicitors and they told him that the landlord has the authority to do so. He eventually refurbished the flat and sold it. But he said the landlord was even able to choose which buyer he wants and whether or not that they agree with the price. Is that even possible? Could it be that he has a shared lease ownership? I tried searching online to see if landlord has any control over the selling of the lease but I couldn't find anything.
  12. I don't think I was in the permit bay. But the warden said I'm in it. When I pulled in I'm sure it said "loading bay". The contravention is code 02. Parked or loading/unloading in a restricted street where waiting and loading/unloading restrictions are in force. I received it via hand. It was all under a minute, the warden walked to my car so I ran towards him. He said I parked in permit bay but I told him that the floor marking says loading bay. He mumbles something about you need a permit to park in this bay. I got back inside the car and was ready to pull out then he signals me to put down the window then handed me the ticket. Then he took a photo of the front of car while I was trying to merge into the traffic. However on the website, it doesn't have a photo of my car at all. It was just a photo of a sign post. I do have 14 days for the reduced fee. It does say I can make representation in the back of the ticket.
  13. I wanted to check if I could appeal for this?
  14. I walked out the car, someone said that a warden is giving me a ticket. I turned around walked to the warden and said I'm parked in white box that says loading bay. He said the sign post says no loading and I'm parked in a permit parking. I said let me check, then I walk to the signpost then got back into my car to drive off. He asked me to put down the window so he can give me a ticket. Then as I was driving off, he took his camera out. So I stopped on purpose to let him take a photo of me on the steering wheel merging into the traffic. I checked the website, it doesn't have a photo of my car. Just a photo of the sign post and that is it. The time on the fine is 13:30 to 13:30. All just under a minute.
  15. I see, at least he was kind enough not to give me a ticket through the mail which he said he will.
