  1. My Partner has rents out a small flat the previous tenant stopped paying rent for the last three months and did not vacate the flat until a Court Order was issued. The tenant overstayed by over two months from the end of the lease on top of being well out of pocket on the let, the Estate Agents are asking for another £400 for their fee because the tenant stayed on longer! They know the tenant did not pay, they know about the Court Order so to try and stick on an extra cost when the tenant was not wanted plus the loss of earnings my Partner incurred during the time the tenant stayed on because a new tenant could not be installed is adding insult to injury. Can that charge be challenged?
  2. Hi I need some advice... I am on ESA (Support Group) and get Housing and council tax benefit. My good friend has come from South Africa and is staying at mine until he finds somewhere. He is sleeping on my sofa as I have a one bedroom flat. I am not charging him rent and he buys his own food. He is also doing temporary agency work part time to earn some money. I have informed the council that he is staying here and now they want to reduce my housing benefit/council tax benefit because they believe he should contribute towards the rent! So would he be able to claim Housing Benefit if he only works part time and is on a low wage? The council have asked to see evidence of his incoming wages and I have to now supply his wage slips. Any help/advice please? Thanks Phil
  3. Good Friday Ladies and gentlemen, A couple of wee ago I was aked to go to see a machine on another site (the site in question is the company who are manufacturing the machine for my employers, not otherwise connected to my employers) As this was a good distance away, my employers booked a hotel room for one night for myself and three colleagues (they are salaried, whereas I am paid by the hour, weekly) We left at 5pm on a Sunday and didn't return until 10pm on the Monday. At the moment my hours are 8-4:30 Monday to Friday. I questioned whether I should receive pay for the time away from home, but all my employers have said is that I could have an afternoon off in lieu. Personally, I do not feel this is fair but as the employee, I would feel that way. I don't expect to be paid for 24 hours, but do think the five hours from 5-10pm both days should be paid as I was off site, away from home (during school holidays!) and on company business. Could anyone offer advice as to how this stands legally, ideally with detail of what I should quote? If they are absolutely, legally, right then that is as it is and I wouldn't expect them to do any more.
