  6. Dismissal with immediate effect means just that, unfortunately. It is a summary dismissal without notice. This would particularly appear to be so if they have not written to him about any notice pay or notice period and his employment terminated as stated, with immediate effect.
  7. I didn't suggest that notice was required during the fixed term. You are right that of course notice to end the tenancy should be minimum 4 weeks (but at least one rental period) if the tenancy is periodic. You may think it is terrible advice to tell a tenant to withold the last month's rent. Believe me over the years I have seen hundreds of cases where people have paid their last month's rent and ended up going to court to get the deposit back off of a landlord with no business to keep it. What is the landlord going to do about it? It is the last month. All he can do is ask for it - if he has properly dealt with the exit inspection and hasn't tried to rip you off then pay him anything he is owed. Not terrible advice but a tactic to stop yourself getting ripped off. But as you say the deposit may be covered by TDS so not a problem. Oh yes and make sure when you vacate that you take photographs of each room. Or a video. Or something. Don't just move out and expect the landlord to be honest about the state of the property.
  8. He he Dave, not being around won't stop them either!! What people should always remember about HMRC is that they never have to prove the debt in any court proceedings (that's certainly true about tax anyway and I expect the same about overpayments of benefits).. They only have to produce a certificate to the court that an amount is owing and the court is obliged to accept this as evidence that the debt exists and is outstanding. Even if they're wrong leaving it to that late stage is like that King on his throne telling the incoming tide to back off! And don't forget that they can proceed against you as long as they have your last known address. You don't want to come back to an old rotten fan covered in sh*t after your break now do you
  9. Check your tenancy agreement. I suspect that it will refer only to the fixed term and probably doesn't have a specific clause in it about the tenant giving notice. Under the tenancy you are obliged to pay rent for the whole of the fixed period. If as you say you are on a periodic tenancy then you are not obliged to give any particular notice at all to leave the property, although you would generally give a month as this is a rent period. You should write to the agent/landlord (before 16.11.07) and tell them that you will be moving out on 16.12.07 and there will be nothing that they will be able to do about it (except keep your deposit and argue with you, so maybe don't pay the last month's rent if they hold a month in hand - i know some will tell you (rightly) that you shouldn't strictly do this, but where you know the landlord is going to be difficult it is a legitimate tactic in my view)
  10. Trouble is that they won't go away. If they have started, however mistakenly, to get you in their sights, although they may be slow, they will not stop. In my experience always deal with HMRC immediately - otherwise they can, and many people I have dealt with in the past will confirm that they do, just roll over you and you'll find that you're telling them they have made a mistake in your response to their bankruptcy petition.
  11. Really can't see what the fuss is about. If people want to engage someone else to do the work for them, thats' fine by me. Just make sure you choose someone qualified and insured. What people charge is a matter for agreement. It is rather strange to say that offering a service to asist people to reclaim is morally repugnant. There are all sorts of companies and services available in all walks of life to do things for people that they could do themselves both in and outside of a legal context. People get the choice and having the choice is a good thing. There's nothing moral or not about it. Use them or don't - your choice. I have only dealt with my own charges and reclaimed for my brother but I have no problem with someone doing the work for a fee if that's what the reclaimer chooses.

    Facebook???

    Facebook - bah - a load of old rubbish - i like to phone my friends and talk to them - email is quite useful and I even meet those who live quite close by Just goes to show that you can make millions for not very much nowadays - bit like X factor - the human race must be entertained - our fears in times gone by were things like survival, food, war, disease - now we are terified of not being entertained . Yet another thing for employers to ban from the workplace !! Excuse the bah humbug tone - fed up at work at the moment - but, Facebook can bite me.
  14. Just a last update - statements back to the opening of my account in 1995 have now popped through my letterbox. So don't let anyone tell you that NW can't give acount statements beyond 6 years.
