About Me


  1. Hi all. Please could anybody give advice. I am having financial problems and decided to cancel my BT phone, internet and tv and switch to Talk Talk to save £25 a month. My BT account contract is up start of October so I set up my new account to start in September. BT want paying for the part month which is fair but also want to charge me £65 for Broadband equipment and £24 for TV equipment which seems unfair. Is this right? I'm doing my best to reduce my spending and that feels like a kick in the teeth. Thanks in advance
  2. I can see a few things against UKCPS however I thought I'd start my own thread. Someone driving my car today receiving a "Parking Charge Notice" on the car for leaving the site, of £100 or £60 within 14 days. I've attached photos of the PCN and of the sign at Bristol Abbeywood Retail Park. I'm the keeper of the vehicle however I wasn't driving the car (I was at home!) so is there anything they can actually do?
  3. The landlords (a company) and I are butting heads about both these issues. Claim damage to furniture: I have had to destroy 3 pieces of furniture due to mould. The mould I believe was caused due to a poor sealing window in our bedroom therefore letting in moisture. The landlords knew about this within a couple of months of moving in and never corrected it. I tried every year before winter to add my own seal but that ultimately fails. And heating the room was so expensive, as I believe there was no wall insulation as there were black spots of mould on 3 out of 4 walls and the nois
  4. (Hopefully this is the right place for this) I am a landlord. I had a managing agent (the Estate Agent). I am on a Guaranteed Rent scheme if you will but that't not the matter in hand. I usually get paid on the 5th of every month but I didn't this year and I thought like even they'll be a day late so I left it at that. After realising on weekend I haven't received anything, I called and called but nothing. I went to the estate agent yesterday and found out that they were closed. Automatically i knew they had not done a runner if you will but just packed up and left. I r
  5. My son used to work for a big retail company and had a company car. The company failed to inform HMRC that he had a fuel card with his company car and now my son has been hit with an unpaid tax bill for £1700. The company only sent off the proper form declaring he had a fuel card when he left the company. He is very angry to receive this bill as it appears that he is being billed for the actions of this company and it appears malicious that they only sent off the form when he left. Is there anything he can do about this?
  6. Hi, I live with my husband, we are both self employed, I had a baby in September and receive Maternity allowance. I was also receiving Working Tax Credits and Child Tax credits, around £80 per week. My husband is currently quiet with work so we asked the council for rent help, they told us they can no longer help and we need to apply for universal credit. We did this (horrendous application system!) and in the meantime our working and child tax credits stopped, we were never informed this would happen, i wish i had just left it as it was. We were relying on that money and now it
  7. Concerning the issue of whether we are a casual worker or a an employee there is many criteria to consider for example the time we work for the employer, our skills, whether he employs us only in case of shortage or during peak time or he uses us in the normal running of our business...etc. However I would like to know if the conclusive evidence is not when the P45 has been issued because if it has been issued one year after the start of employment this means that we are now an employee. It is up to the employer to decide if he need us anymore or nor and as a consequence if he se
  8. I have received a charge for leaving a car park 52 seconds too late According to the time on my clock we returned to the car park before 6pm. By the time we had loaded the boot with pushchair, then put our young 2 year old daughter into the car, we did vacate the parking spot before 6pm and in fact left the car park according to my clock before 6pm but their camera picture states 6pm and 52 seconds. I am really annoyed. Also even if their time is correct that is still only 52 seconds over , the picture they show is with the car on the giveway waiting
  9. hi all... my partner lived in France for years and recently moved back to the Uk. .. since returning French authorities are demanding 6000 Euros for some supposed over-payment of low income supplement that she received while in France. She emailed them explaining that as well as not understanding why this is owed, that she is on low earnings here and could only afford to repay 20 Euros per month. They have said this is not acceptable and want more than 200 Euros per month. The other day we have received a letter demanding the full amount from "Titre Executoire" ...
  10. I received a parking charge notice from UKCPS on the windscreen of my car which was parked in a co-op car park. The PCN is for £100 (£60 if paid within 14 days). for leaving the site. Apparently I was seen by the parking attendant parking up and walking off site. I appealed the charge on the grounds that we purchased good from the store on the day and that the parking attendant had ticked the Parking Charge Notice inappropriately as the tick was outside any of the boxes on the paperwork. UKCPS rejected my appeal on the grounds that there are signs which clearly
  11. When this goes on for over a decade and there are home owners adjoined, when there has been deliberate harassment of noise and mess left around that home owner to try to force them out - what can be done in terms of getting the landlord to finish renovating the property in a timely manner? Thanks
  12. I am posting this on behalf of my son. He worked for a car dealership selling new cars for multiple brands. As part of his job he was given a company car some weeks ago it was vandalised by someone who kicked a dent in the front wing and it was going to be settled through the company's insurance. He has found a role at another dealership and he handed his notice in. His last day was yesterday and he was spoken to y the MD who demanded he pays £750 to repair the vehicle, my son rang his own insurance company who said the repair would cost less than £500 and his deductible wa
  13. Firstly, thanks for any input. I have been with my current company for about 12 years. Way back in the yonder, I developed back problems, that eventually resulted in a back operation on 8th May 2015 (Discetomy and decompression on L4/L5) I returned to work on 8th Sept 2015. I was promised a gradual return to work (two weeks at base and light duties) The two weeks turned into 4 days and light duties went out the window the first week. (I have copies of the work sheets for every job I attended after the operation. Work was ok until I had jobs that required me picking up
  14. Afternoon all. First time poster here looking for advice. I am leaving my current employer to take up a post with another company. I am currently undertaking a distance learning course (half of which has been deferred to 2017 due to personal circumstances), which has not yet finished, so under a signed training agreement I am liable for the full balance of the outstanding costs. I held a meeting with my current employer to attempt to set up a repayment plan, as the balance outstanding is over £3,000 and I am not in a position to pay this immediately, but I have informed that my
  15. Hello. I've been with my employer just shy of 12 months, I started as an apprentice and qualified not long ago. when starting I was told I would be paid £6.50ph (NMW at that time) and would be collected and returned home by one of their vans. My position is a painter ( was apprentice, no formal change of title, other than the fact I have qualified ) I had no problems with the firm until october last year when they failed to increase my wage inline with the NMW increase to £6.70 an hour. They did eventually around christmas time 2015. I am techincally owed the missing wages , b
  16. I have about 5 days remaining holidays, and my last day is Wednesday (tomorrow). My manager said that the holidays have reset at April thus won't get holiday pay. I wasn't given the opportunity to take any holidays during my 4 weeks, nor was I given my contract even a month after asking for it. Can I still get my holidays paid?
  17. Hi there, We have a really good landlord but I am in a 3rd floor flat and have found out I have MS. Increasingly I am finding the stairs difficult, both with vision and energy. We still have 8 months to go on a 12 month contract. At the moment we are thinking of staying until the lease is up but we keep seeing ground floor properties with adaptations and are worried that nothing suitable will be around in 8 months. (last time we were looking there were no ground floor properties)
  18. Now their latest released video is about their disappointment towards UK government ignoring the video prior to this one. They were very disappointed that the UK government underestimated them and their released statements. Now, UK government will get what they deserve. This actually sounds scary. What would be Anonymous’ next action? Let’s stay tune. Watch Anonymous’ video below. Greetings citizens of the world, we are anonymous. http://weshapelife.org/2016/02/24/anonymous-is-back-leaving-a-warning-for-uk-government/ Now i went to a Anonymous do a while back and met some protestors,t
  19. Afternoon all. I am writing on behalf of my mother who received a windscreen ticket from TPS on 01/10/14 for the above in a B & Q car park. She did not actually leave the site and spent money in said premises. A charge notice was not sent to her from TPS but their agents, Premier Solicitors (PS) sent a threatogram on 26/01/15. This was ignored. Almost a whole year later PS have followed this up with another threatogram citing Beavis and anything else they want demanding payment of £110 by 2nd February. As the above happened so long ago she cannot prove she spent money in B &

  21. Hi everyone I'm having a battle with my meat company and am not getting anywhere. They are refusing to accept responsibility and won't refund me for the cost of the ruined meat and are holding on to my credit balance when I cancelled the account one month ago and whilst I am convinced I am in the right I don't know that I am. What happened was that during the summer the courier left my meat order with neighbours that I am not very friendly with and on that occasion they signed for the meat and promptly went out for the rest of the day. After that I asked the meat company to p
  22. Help desperatly needed, sorry this will be a long one. and I cant put in specific details. Hubby has a disability dx 5 years ago that is covered by the equality act, he has been employed by same company for 18 years, no more time off than any other employee and less than some! He was doing his job perfectly ok and the only adaption he has was that he worked a fixed shift, and the other 2 guys sorted out the other shifts between what they preferred. Earlier in the year the company literally decided they didn't want him to go to the new plant that was due to open and set about fabrica

  25. Hi Please help, I worked for a company for 4 years. We parted company as they wanted to downgrade my position without any reason or reviews taken place. After i left, in February 2015; I then received my regular salary on following month March. They are now (May) demanding I pay back all the sum within 5 days or face court action. I have been home all this time and not found a job, nor on benefit. I have used the money to pay for my living. I don't dispute the over-payment... What options do I have? Id like to pay back when I get a job on a monthly basis, I don't want
