  1. Hi my landlord is saying me and the people I live with have abandoned the house and that we also owe her rent and wants us to sign over the deposit to her as she believes we have left damage in the house. This isn't true because the contract we had with the landlord ended on the 31/07/2017 and in mid-September the landlord came around and said she wants use out by the 02/12/2017 with no reason on why she wasn't going to renew the contract. So, we found a new place and moved are stuff into it for the 01/11/2017. The landlord came around on the 01/11/2017 saying the above and threatening court action if we didn't sign over the deposit from the house agents to her. She also took the keys of my mum when she was there and then told the house agents that we have left damage and she hasn't got the keys. Flat out lie right there. I'd really like some advice on what to do because she’s coursing stress for everyone and my sister isn't mentally well and all this is making her worse. Also, the house agents have e-mailed me wanting my side for the 10/11/2017. Thanks Andrew
  2. hi guys, I have an abandoned vehicle in my drive way from a tenant around 14 months ago. He has been contacted about 12 times. The car is 15 to 20 years old. In a very bad situation of disrepair. All windows were broken, tyres flat etc. I called the police and car removal people. No one knows what can be done. Anyone here knows what can be done? Ali
  3. Hi, Back in Nov 2016 I agreed a business contract with Opus to be my gas supplier in March 2016. I have since found out that Opus had abandoned this contract in December 2015. However they have failed to inform me of this resulting in my supplier at the time "Extra Energy" to move me to a high out of contract tariff. Opus are currently investigating why this contract was abandoned as there seems to be is no clear reason. Is there any action I can take against Opus for not upholding the contract and then failing to inform me of that i no longer had a contract with them? Thank you for your time.

  5. Hi guys, in January of this year we ordered a large piece of sporting equipment from an online company worth approximately £1200 The equipment was manufactured and apparently delivered to the school where it was to be stored in June. However at the beginning of the school year in September, we went to storage cages and it could not be found. In fact the school had no record of there ever being a delivery. We asked for proof of delivery from the company they replied back with 'proof of delivery' which contained the date and time of delivery along with the signature of someone called 'Daniel'. It turns out that the equipment was found in the middle of the school car park and there is no one working at the school called 'Daniel'. We believe that the delivery driver could not be bothered to find someone to accept the parcel, dumped it in the car park and then signed off on it himself as 'Daniel'. We're happy to have the equipment now frankly I'm outraged that it was left abandoned in an uncovered car park and that the driver most likely signed off on it himself. Is there anything we can do about this apart from complain to the company?
  6. Hi guys I'm not sure if I have posted this to the correct place but i'm wondering if anyone can offer any advice. There is a row of houses on a road plus a detatched house which have been boarded up for many many years and are quite dilapidated now. The council owns them, and I have asked if the council could sell me the detached house and I would renovate it as I cant afford to buy a house at the prices they are and will never get a £200k mortgage. I have worked since I was 15 and never been on benefits but because of this im not entitled to any help, even when I was made homeless because of family issues, I worked I was not a priority so had to rent privately as the council would not help. Anyway back to the point the council have said that they are looking to demolish the houses so that they can build new ones, which I think is completely pointless and a waste of money they only need a few thousand pounds spending on them to renovate and I want the detached one so it wont be affected, they haven't actually got planning permission to demolish the detached property yet. How can I get them to sell me this they are wasting such a great resource and I could turn this in to such a beautiful home for my family.

    Abandoned Car

    Apologies if this is the wrong section, no idea where else to put it! I've reported an abandoned car to DVLA 3 times since December 2012. The car in question hasn't turned a wheel since it was left there, the tax on it ran out at the end of December 2012 and its not sorn. I've reported it to my local council and they won't do sod all unless I report it to the management company ( I live in a newish build block of flats), they then have to contact the council in writing and also pay a £40 charge to get a notice attached to the vehicle and it then removed. Council say this due to it being private property. Is there a timescale DVLA work to regarding abandoned/untaxed cars? Because I can see my management company doing nothing about it!
  8. Hopefully someone here can give me advice. Two and a half yrs ago my at the time boyf, asked if he could keep his Ford Escort in my garage, I agreed as he said it would be for a short time. Now two and a half yrs later and the cars been here longer than its owner was. I have asked my ex numerous times over the last year or so to remove the car. I always got a non committal response. I have had enough now and just want it gone What should I do pls???? Am also worried as to legalities/ will I be liable for the SWORN on this car, as it has been here for so long?
  9. In addition nPower has agreed to issue £10 vouchers to affected customers. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-20625462 The abandon calls came just weeks after nPower were fined £2m by OFGEM for its poor handling of customer complaints http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/personalfinance/consumertips/8859221/Npower-fined-2m-by-Ofgem.html
