  1. I'm contacting you on behalf of my daughter - she is currently owed £1400 which has been duly paid by her ex via his wages....company deducted at source on court order. However. They have failed to send it to CSA so they can send to her. Where does she stand with this? Surely, there should be some recompense, as he has paid, she is bringing the kids up alone and only the company he works for are in profit? Any advice appreciated Teresa
  2. I am self-employed as a painter and decorator and am doing some work for a contractor who says he has to deduct tax from my wages. I'm a bit concerned about this because this is my first job this tax year and I imagine it will be an emergency tax code which will mean paying a lot more than if I was employed and had a code. I realiseI will get this back eventually but could do without it being taken off me now, I understood that, as a self-employed person, my tax affairs were my own responsibility and I wonder if anyone could throw some light on what is supposed to happen in a situation like this. Thanks in anticipation
  3. If you have air source heating, what er your experiences using it regarding heating itself, cost of consumption, icing up etc. We had storage heating and this is our first winter with air source heating. Our electric bill has almost doubled in comparison to last year. We also find that the machine ices up on cold days and is not very effective when you really need it. On moderate days it is fine and works okay. We have had to resort to buying a gas heater and only use the central heating in off peak due to the high costs. Your views will be appreciated. Thanks.
  4. Previously we had storage heaters, but we had issues keeping the lounge and another front room warm and the lounge was always cold. We complained on numerous occasions that we seem to be losing heat in the lounge and the small front room. In March 2012 they replaced the storage heaters with air source heating and now our electric bill has jumped up from about £82 in winter months to £135! The figures are based on true readings. The lounge and small room still lose heat and the air source heating machine keeps switching on to maintain the temperature hence the high electric bills. The walls have been done and there is insulation in the loft plus double glazing. In the lounge and the small room we have front facing windows and below them is PVC panelling. We feel that we may be losing a lot of heat through the PVC panelling. We have also noticed that when there is a heavy frost or snow, our neighbours in the adjoining bungalows have frost or snow on their roofs, but not us which seems to indicate that we are also losing heat through the roof. If you turn down the heating within less than 2 hours it has dropped from 22C to under 18C. We have complained to the Housing Association but have not made any progress. I suffer from Rheumatoid arthritis and a cold home does not help. If the HA do eventually resolve the issue will we be able to claim the extra that we have had to pay in electric as we have been complaining for nearly 3 years?
