  3. Yeah sorry, I remember at the time I was scared to post, because there was a confidentiality agreement. Doesnt really matter now I would have thought. Seems like everyones on the bandwagon these days
  4. Back in August 06 actually, sorry I forgot to update the thread.
  5. Simple Answer - just dont pay the extra £5, let them chase you in the courts for it
  6. I dont quite understand, are you saying that your current house is being reposessed or your old house?
  7. Poppy, In my opinion, if the charges were deducted from said account, then barclays should refund them to the same. Your overdraft is something you have legitimately spent and you will have to pay it back eventually. just look at it as being good that you have now paid off a chunk of your overdraft.
  8. I suppose that If they were to take me to court to recover reasonable (in their opinion) reparations including the penalty charges, then they have to be prepared to substantiate to the judge the level of cost associated with the end of tennancy dilapidations; thus by providing documentary evidence such as photos, work recipts & quotes e.t.c. together with proof that I actually caused the damage and that they are not seeking betterment of the existing finishes within the apartment. With this in mind, It would not be in their best interest to exaggerate the costs of damages / repair whe
  9. Today I received the reply from the letting agent which basically says go jump, the charges are in our standard T&C so you still owe us the money. I would like to do as Mr Shed has suggested and withhold the last months' rent, however my deposit is actually equal to 6 weeks rent, therefore I would have to withhold the last 1.5 months rent upon moving out to be sure that they chase ME for the money. This is problematic as I am sure there will be a few repairations to be deducted from the deposit when I move out as I have a 4 year old boy and ... well need I say more. This wou
  10. The lease does not mention the charges, but the standard terms and conditions state that a charge of £40 + VAT will be made for each letter sent. I have bit the bullet and sent the letter. See below: ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- Over the last few months you have been charging a number of cost to my account for the purported administration fees associated with arrears on the account. I do not argue that there were arrears on the account. I was unable to pay the rent on time due to being involved in a car accident on 10th Nove
  11. Good Idea MrShed, However I have got reservations about withholding the last months rent as it would put me in breach of contract. The agent would be more likely to try and stitch me up with some other trumped up charges on the inventory and maybee not look so good if it went to court. I want them to acknowledge that their charges are wrong. I haven't seen any cases like this on the forum and maybee its' just this particular agent playing the numbers game with unsuspecting suckers. The threat of court action might rustle some feathers. Also the threat of a complaint to the OF
  12. Last November I was involved in a nasty car accident, and as a result had some time off work (without pay). The lack of income could not have come at a worse time (before christmas e.t.c.) and as aresult I started to get behind on my rent payments. Although I am now in the black again, it took a couple of months for me to pay off the rent arrears. I am in a rolling AST agreement with an agent. They have charged me £40.00 + VAT for each week I was in arrears, by virtue of a reminder letter claiming to cover the administration charges. To date I owe them nearly £400.0
  13. Mate, you're wasting my time reading your egotistical babble.
  14. When I visit this site, i really dont want to read through thousands of lines of junk before I see any useful information. DarkKnight you really should spend your time putting your energy to some more constructive use, rather than trying (too hard) to justify yourself. You are not helping, in fact you are a time waster actually.
