About Me


  1. Hi, it's my first time posting here. My Landlord is a corporate company that rents out hundreds of flats. After two years of being a good tenant and always paying on time, my (now ex) partner stole money from me and I fell into two months rent arrears. My Landlord was not willing to agree to a payment arrangement and instead served me with a Section 8 Notice and a Section 21 Notice. Both those notices have now expired. They seem to have ditched the Section 8 entirely, but I just received the court paperwork for the Section 21 Accelerated Possession. Now, the Issue Date s
  2. I have a summons to appear at magistrates court on the 2nd May relating to a case innappropriate for the single justice proceedure.

  6. Sickness benefits claimants won't have to go through reassessments to keep their payments if they suffer from chronic illnesses. http://news.sky.com/story/reassessments-scrapped-for-chronically-ill-benefits-claimants-10600519
  7. I've called in sick at 10:30 this morning to work for a shift starting at 2. Had a reply about an hour ago (that I've only just seen) saying they've got cover for the first 2 hours of my 9 hour shift. They've got no one to do it, and I'm just to tell the other person what to do with regards to work, but I'll still be expected to work with the customers. What do I do?? When I drove home last night from the shift I also tried to call out for I was not 100% safe on the roads, and had 2 bad moments. And I wasn't as bad yesterday as I feel today. I just... there's so few of us at th
  8. This is reported tday. David Cameron should have been statesmanlike. Instead he was partisan. His remark to Tory MPs that 'you should not be walking through the lobbies (i.e voting) with Jeremy Corbyn and a bunch of terrorist sympathisers' was unworthy of a British Prime Minister. BTW I think a militant exchange. One quote made it was idiotic and crass to say that. It demeans the reality of war. The insult not just aimed at JC but anybody who expresses doubt about the wisdom of bombing Syria. It applies to John Baron, a former British army officer who served in Northern Ireland whe
  9. I have been detained under section 44 with what I believe is ehlers-danlos-syndrome and wrongly being interpted as mental illness- they want to do tests but the problem is there is no one in Scotland really ualified to diagnose it . I am already physically much worse which in turn is being interpted as yet more mental issues and can barely type or talk to communicate as well.

  11. Hi, I am currently taking someone to court over an ebay dispute. The date is this Thursday the 8th. I am however too ill to attend and have been told by my doctor that I need complete bed rest for the next 7 days (serious pregnancy complications) and the court is a good 2 hour drive away. Is it too late to get the hearing adjourned? The doctor said he would be able to supply a letter if needs be. Thanks
  12. I work in a supermarket and its a very cold place. I have been diagnosed with asthma when I was 13 which the symptoms subsidised at early adulthood. I was diagnosed again just two years ago aged 31. Both annual asthma checks have stated that it's getting worse I work on the checkouts which are both by the chillers and doors to outside. Customers chatting with each other outside the store keeps the doors opened. Can't tell them to move as that's rude.The cold atmosphere makes my chest feel tight and I wheeze now and again. I do not suffer from tight chest outside work. I have mentione
  13. Hi, I'm looking for some advice on IHR. I've worked for my employer for 6 and a half years. In November I was involved in a motorbike accident that wasn't my fault. At the time of the accident I discolated my shoulder,snapped 3 of my rotator cuffs from the bone,moved my bicep and bicep tendon and was told later by the surgeon that I also damaged a bunch of tendons in my shoulder. Ive been off work since the accident,as I lost the use of my shoulder and could only lift my arm about 2 inches from hanging down at my side. Over the months I've been going through physio
  14. My mate was suppose to go on this course last week and was ill but phoned in to say he was ill and the guy said he COULD lose his benefits?! Surely that is not right to punish him he IS ill! He is a panic as we speak so I need some advice on what to say to him? I've never been ill so I wouldn't know what to say... thank u
  15. Hello I was supposed to sign on yesterday however I was laid out with a full blown migraine I got my mum to ring up for me however she could not get through to the actual jobcentre after many attempts of ringing the 0845 number If I was to go in and ask for the JSA28 form tomorrow would that prevent me from being sanctioned? Will it be okay that I did not make contact on the day? Cheers, Mike
  16. Here goes: I bought a cavachon puppy off a registered breeder online a week ago, the breeder seemed very genuine, we had lots of phone conversations etc.. anyway, i picked up the pup from the breeders house along with some other bits for the pup including paperwork. When i got the pup it had already had its first vaccination and been checked over by a vet, when i took the pup to have its 2nd vaccination 2 days ago my vet told me my pup has a grade 5 and close to grade 6 heart murmur now grade 6 is the worst it gets! and my puppy unfortunately wont live very long my vet also advised it s
  17. Hi I have just been awarded partial ill health retirement backdated to end August 2013. I have now received a letter saying my employment will be terminated from the same date and I would receive any outstanding holiday pay.When I queried why I would not receive any notice pay and why there was no notification of my contract being terminated I was told that as I had requested to be considered for ill health retirement, I had effectively handed in my notice and would not be entitled to notice pay. I have been with this employer for 21 years. I would appreciate feedback as I have lost trust in m
  18. Hi guys My little lads just caught chicken poxs from nursery, my misses can get the time off tomorrow but Friday she has important meetings all day, my question is if i phoned my HR and told them i wasnt coming in on Friday as my little lads contracted chicken poxs can they discipline me for having the day off to care for him as nursery wont allow him to attend
  19. My car turbo just blow up. I took the car to the local garage and was advised that the engine is fine after the turbo was removed and will need to just pay for the turbo replacement so it is economically to proceed with it. After replacement was done the garage called to say that the change was done but the problem has escaladed now and it is an engine problem and this is non economical to do it because it would cost at least 3k. They said that they would like me to pay for the turbo and take the car for a part exchange post it on ebay as engine in need of attention. Do I pay for something tha
  20. Hi I have recently been signed off for a month and it could be longer I have a terminal illness and although I was off sick a long time ago (3yrs) been ok ever since. Employed for nearly 6 yrs, no pension Ha Ha but will not return to current job for 1 yr although could get a driver, or work in the office so not an unreasonable adjustment in my opinion. Anyway the question is what would be a normal time span before the co make noises about getting rid of me? and what would be the normal process, given that company has always been reasonable and are a fairly large employer?
  21. Ok so I have been on JSA since January this year. However I am due to sign however I have come down with a awful stomach bug and have been vomiting for the last few hours and I know for a fact I wont make it to my appt. My voice has gone because I have been throwing up too much and I can barely speak. I've never missed an apt nor have I had any problems so whats the procedure now. I don't want to attend and end up being sick, plus ive become quite weak and have been sleeping constantly for a whole day. I may even get my mother to phone in because I just can't talk at the moment so hopeful
  22. Hi fellow caggers, It looks like I could have been given duff advice by my union rep and shafted by management I was ill health retired with lump sum although I am appealing for immediate pension. At the only meeting that I had last year with the rep and regional manager I was told that I would have to accept the lump sum deal and then appeal for immediate pension at a later date. I said that I really did not want the money hanging around in my bank which I was unable use and could the company keep it untill the appeal. The whole charade has been strung out and I don't
  23. My girlfriend works for a care agency, and recently she was off sick for one day. She followed correct company procedure, but now they are claiming she didn't, and have taken £100 out of her week wage because she missed five clients. The company don't charge the service users £20 per hour and they were able to find cover for the hours she wasn't able to work. Now she is under investigation. Is any of this fair or is there something a miss here? I will try and provide as much information as you require; I hope you are able to help.
  24. I have a question, what is the grounds for you to be medically retired on the grounds of ill health. I am currently employed however I have a medical condition called sacroiliac joint injury of which the characteristics are: Pain on the right of my lower back. The pain ranges from an ache to a sharp pain which restricts my movement to the point where I cannot leave the house. If I leave the house, I walk for around 5 mins then experience pain in my back and legs and struggle to return home. Experience difficulty turning over in bed, struggle to put on shoes and socks and someti
  25. My brother has been diagnosed with an agressive form of lung cancer, the doctor said that there is no cure but depending on how he responds to treatment he is looking at between 3 months to 3yrs left. My brother has a mortgage on his flat and wants to transfer it to my son and his fiance. How would we go about this and would there be problems regarding costs for end of life care and inheritance tax etc.? I hope that my brother would move in with me if it came to that but he is quite independent. How could my brother be financially protected if he went into remission and lived longer/:?:
