  1. I own a retirement flat. I decided to extend the lease, prior to selling. I contacted the lease company (a large organisation) and agreed price + costs for the lease extension. They appointed their solicitor to extend the lease. The lease he produced was sent by my solicitor to the Land Registry for registering - they returned it saying there were errors in the drafting. Both my solicitor and I have contacted the solicitor asking for it to be corrected. He has refused, saying "he knows how to do a lease extension" and that he will not correct it as the Land Registry requires. So th
  2. Good Afternoon, Apologies if this is in the wrong forum. I'm about to send off a SAR with regards to a problem with AMEX and Allied International and a breach of DPA, amongst other issues. Allied International are purporting to be representing AMEX as an agent and as such are effectively working on behalf of AMEX. With this in mind, will a SAR sent to AMEX be enough to gain access to Allied International actions taken on behalf of AMEX? Thanks in advance.
  3. Hi All, Apologies if this isn't the right place to post this but it was the most suitable heading I could find. In April 2012 I took out a £5000 loan from Amigo with a 60 month term, I know the interest rate is ridiculous and anyone would be stupid to actually use these people but I needed the money and at the time this was my only option. I worked out yesterday that I had 10 months left of the loan and around £2200 left in payments to make but when I checked the statement the balance was £3095 (before they add any interest on for the next 10 months). So I called them this morn
  4. Hi guys, so it's been quite a while since I posted due to I tend not to get into debt anymore, but I am currently looking at an N244 order that Cabots solicitors have filed to extend the length of time required to file documents and an adjournment to be granted so they can get the required documents. In my original defence I stated if they could demonstrate I owed the debt via the usual methods then I will accept the debt belongs to me, but in a longer way than this obviously. They tried to have the application dealt without a hearing but it is in my local court on Tu
  5. H i everyone and apologies if this is in the wrong section. Around June 2014 I completed an application to construct a single storey extension of (4.5 metres), extended the kitchen and making a shower room downstairs. The property also had a conservatory at the back but I was not sure if that was part of the original property so decided to complete the necessary forms and mentioned that the extension will start from the end of the kitchen and not from the end of the conservatory. Once everything was approved I had a building inspector come down to my property and it was he who advis
  6. We're looking at buying a tumble dryer from Currys and have been offered a warranty extension for 5 years for £50. Has anyone done this and is it worth it?
  7. Hi, Is there a way to tell if an employment tribunal judgement has been made in default? I took my ex-employer to the ET, and, long story short, got a judgement for unlawful deduction of wages success. I was not requested to attend court, and heard nothing more on the subject for a while until I received the judgement in the post. It just says "JUDGMENT, The claim for unlawful deduction of wages succeeds and the respondent is ordered to pay forthwith, the sum of £xxxx.xx to the claimant. After the fourteen day of "interest free" deadline had, passed. I chased up the respo
  8. Hi, I'm one of two tenants (spouse and I) on an Assured Shorthold Tenancy (AST) agreement whose fixed term ends at the end of the month. The agency recently proposed a new fixed term agreement, but we now want to continue on a Statutory Periodic Tenancy. We are aware of the risks, and are willing to take them. We made it absolutely clear that we are not signing another document (so no agreed periodic tenancy). However, the agents still want to charge us £70 per head (£140 in total) for every six month period of the SPT. They justify this with our tenancy agreement which reads among the ob
  9. hi i have issued protective proceedings for a claim for negligence. time for issue of poc runs out in nov this year. i am just about to send letter of claim. it will therefore be impossible for the other side to issue their letter of response before poc. i therefore want to propose an extension of time for 1. their response to my claim and 2. for serving my poc. can this be done simply by correspondence between the parties or do applications have to be made to the court?
  10. Good afternoon. I have a couple of questions regarding an ET case that has recently been submitted, for constructive dismissal, and wonder if someone can guide me. 1. The respondent (a large retail company) has, 8 days before the time limit, requested an extension of time to submit their ET3, citing 'they are awaiting further information on the claim from me', as there isn't enough information in the ET1 for them to respond. Yet they only wrote a letter to me, on the same date (today). Can I object to the request, and if so, how? 2. The letter appears to be a 'fishing' lette
  11. I had a two year contract with a car leasing company. The contract term was ended and a collection was confirmed. But the day before the collection, they informed me that, because of a missing payment, the collection was cancelled and the contract was put on an "informal extension". They also said I would be liable for the rental charges of the "extended" period. It is true that the last month's payment didn't go through, but I was not aware of it and they didn't mention it at all even when I confirmed the collection date with them. I feel angry with their behaviour, in particular on
  12. Hi all I was just hoping for some help with this. I bought a property for £235k 2 years ago. There is a ground rent accumulator within the lease that starts at £250 per year and doubles every 10 years until the 50th anniversary, so in other words in 50 years the ground rent will be £8k per year. The lease is 125 years, so 123 years to go at present. Obviously I would like to remove this ridiculous clause. I have requested a valuation from the freeholder to extend my lease by 90 years and thereby reduce the ground rent to a peppercorn. They have quoted £22,950 + £845 legal costs + £57
  13. Hi and Help i have approached my freeholder for the price of extending my lease - i have a short lease of 62 years remaining. the freeholder has come back to me with a very high figure to bring the lease up to 99 years only, and to increase the ground rent from £52pa to £250 doubling every 25 years!!!! i have no issues with his wanting his legal costs. so now what? i want to draft a response, but not sure how to put it. i did approach a conveyencing solicitor, but they advised they would only get involved and draw up contracts once the premium was agreed. not only th
  14. Really need some advice about a letter i have received from local council regarding the recent extension of my boundary fence. The problem has stemmed from me having a nosey neighbour who has issues with everything and everyone, so much so that i stopped talking to him a few years ago. He built his shed on a platform which enabled him to stand in the doorway of it and look directly into our house. He has used the chance to do this constantly. I have had no privacy and had become increasely distressed by this. He makes unlimited pointless trips to the shed whenever i am outside to watch wha
  15. My employer has declined my request for flexible working and I would like to appeal. Before lodging an appeal, I wished to take union advice, but my union caseworker fell ill and there was a delay until someone else could be found to take on my file and provide advice. Unfortunately, by this point, the 14-day period in which appeals must be made had elapsed (it is day 15). Can I claim that I am entitled to an extension on the grounds that employees should receive proper legal/union support? I can't find anything legal about this on the internet. Any advice appreciated!
  16. Does anyone know how much wonga are likely to charge me for an extension of £149 for one month
  17. Hi All, I am about to start the process of extending the lease on my flat (currently at 73 years). I am not sure whether to go down ther formal or informal route yet. Is there a difference in cost? If the cost is the same I think the formal route would be best as I get a longer lease and peppercorn ground rent. I don't have the valuation to extend the lease yet but I have made an inital enquiry and the Freeholder/landlord has recoommended extending to 99 years with a £250 a year ground rent. Is £250 a reasonable and standard ground rent for a converted 1 bed flat in Brighton? I have
  18. Hi, I'm new to this and forums, so forgive me if I've put this in the wrong place. My ET1 was accepted. The employers submitted an ET3. Due to 'an administrative error' (Employment Tribunal's phrase), there has been a very long delay between my being physically attacked by my employers and the submitting of forms by them and the employers. I have literally just received the hearing and due process dates and today I have received a letter from my now ex-employers' solicitors, asking for an unbelieveable amount of information, that I would have to get together by this coming Monda
  19. Hi Guys! Needs an urgent advice! I am in real trouble. Today I had a CMD on the phone, Judge wanted to call off the prehearing for next week since the Respondent accepted my disability, but the counsel argued that my other claims for race/ religion are out of time. he also argued that I did not make an application for time extension, although I inserted a paragraph in my statement arguing that it will be just and equitable to hear all the facts over the years of employment. The counsel argues that there are time gaps in between various alleged acts of discrimination so those claim s
  20. Hello Folks, I would like guidance and how I can help a work colleague, who is out of pocket by £750. My colleague applied for same day service “POE” premium service, for a Visa extension, but due to the unavailability of the UK BA IT system, they were unable to progress the application on the same day and actually took about 4 weeks to process. This is a similar time-frame as if he and his wife applied for the normal postal application service. The fee is £1000 for UK BA postal service The premier service is £1500 The difference between the premier service and the pos
  21. I recently received a parking ticket for parking in a red route bay outside my house in south east London. However, I am convinced that when I parked my car there it was not inside the red route bay. In other words, I believe that the bay has been extended around my car while it was parked there. Looking on the road, there is a clearly visible line where the bay used to go up to. I'm very conscious of this are as it's right outside my house. I challenged the ticket on this basis (firstly, that the car was not in a red route bay when I parked it there; secondly, that as a resident
