  1. In our contacts, it says we must give access to our properties when required. The Housing Act 1988 states "In accordance with the Housing Act 1988, your landlord or letting agent must notify you in writing at least 24 hours before they wish to enter your home". They're not giving notice and are sending people without notice and then sending tenants letters when the tenants turn them away due to it being a bad time. I'm guessing the law overrules the landlord?
  2. Hi, An internet payment fell on a time when I had no money in my account to cover it because of work situation. Santander felt the necessity to charge me for an "instant overdraft request fee" and because I did phone and get it cancelled earlier this year (it happened before) they are "unable" to do it. they want to steal £25 off me this time because... NOTHING actually happened: the money never came out of my account, the internet company didnt get paid (because they sent me another invoice), my account has no overdraft capability, and santander feels I owe them £
  3. Saw this link on Facebook today so decided ti have a look. This is a group called Post Modern Jukebox who take songs and add a new twist. Never heard of them before but in my opinion should be heard a lot more. Brilliant
  4. I popped in to a Metro Bank branch in South London recently to open a business instant access deposit account. Their website says "No Metro Bank Business current account is required." They tried to sell me their business current account, which is not free unless you have more than £5,000. When I refused, they asked me why I wanted an instant access account, and I told them that I just want a basic account. They said that you cannot make an online transfer out unless you have another Metro bank account, so I opened a personal current account, and I was accepted for that, but
  5. Hi all, Can anyone help out? Do you have any information on the following company. https://www.instantdecisionloans.co.uk/ or has anyone heard of them or had any dealings with them? A colleague of mine has unfortunately been duped by them out of circa £500. A police report is in the process of being filled out for fraud. He is currently cancelling his card and changing his account details so that they can no longer take money from him. any info on these would be great if anyone has had dealings with them. Thanks
  6. Hi there, Today I was instantly dismissed following an investigation into alleged gross misconduct. The misconduct in question was uploading several photos to facebook (stupid I know!) but other employees in the same store have done the same offense and not had any disciplinary actions. Previous to this I have not had anyone talk to me about the social media policy nor about the inappropriate nature of the photos. I am going to appeal but I was just wondering if anyone had any ideas on how to word my letter or even what to include? I'm totally at a loss! Thanks for any help! Scarlet
  7. Morning all, I've had a letter from Link regarding an MBNA debt (who I am in the process of taking to court as over half of the amount owing is unlawful charges and interest gained because of them) saying that unless I contact them in 7 days they will instruct Instant Silver (whom I'm sure have about as much power as instant coffee) to take over management of the account. I've had a little look around the site and it seems that I.S are link in a different frock, but everything I've found has been over a year old - does anybody know if this is this still the case? I am not sure
  8. Bought an ipod touch a couple of years ago and was told at the time about the whatever happens warranty. I went back 2 days after i bought the ipod and bought the warranty. So yesterday i drop my ipod and smash the screen, today i took it in with the warranty details and reciept of the warraty but they say they wont replace it without the reciept for the ipod, the warranty isnt enough. Ive havent got the reciept so i asked them to look on the system for the purchase details, when they look they can find all of my other purchases from currys including the warranty but they cant find
  9. Hi Guys, Recently I kinda burnt some food on the stove! OK... ok, I forgot it was there until the smoke alarm went off. Anyway, the kitchen STANK for ages after that. UNTIL. A few days ago a friend said, get some lemons, chop them up finely, get a MASSIVE pot, fill it with water, plonk the lemon in and give the kitchen a steam bath. So I did, and guess what.. The smell INSTANTLY disappeared! Just a word of warning, I was sure to remove things like metal ornaments and books etc... incase the acid in the lemon vapour corroded it. Also remove books as acid
  10. The Government is to give the Office of Fair Trading (OFT) new powers to suspend a consumer credit licence with immediate effect. It follows outrage from consumer groups after companies that have been censured for breaking the rules are allowed to continue operating. The most high-profile case was Yes Loans, which charged would-be borrowers up to £70 for loans that they would never be offered. The new measure will help the OFT clamp down on rogue companies that provide any goods or services around credit, lend money, collect debts or help people with debt problems – like payday lend
  11. Let's hope the OFT actually act with these new powers; http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-18909654 Rob
