  1. hello, not long ago I thought I'd get myself a second job and thought doing pizza delivery wasn't such a bad idea seen as I'd be getting free pizza's every night (sad i know) So I went and got my CBT, purchased a bike got it taxed and bought courier insurance to go along with it and away I went. A few weeks back I was involved in a head on collision with a van, it decided to cut in front of me from the opposite lane to turn into a side street with no indication as I was doing about 30mph thus I ended up smashing into his bonnet at full speed and straight onto the ground knocking me o
  2. Does anyone know if we would be entitled to a discount for poor service from an estate agent? We were duped into thinking we could get a lot more for our property with Haart estate agents Their fees were more than anyone else we had value our place but as they were so sure in getting more for us, we agreed to go with them From the very start there were problems. The photographer didn't turn up when he should, the pictures didn't go straight on Rightmove, we wasn't getting any viewings and then when I queried it, we were getting viewings booked and the person wouldn't turn up I
  3. Hi Everyone! I have recently found a suitable property to rent in my local area via Rightmove and, after reading the information provided regarding fees, (Admin charge £50 and Referencing fee £75 plus vat) I contacted the letting agent for a viewing. I contacted the agent following my viewing, to express my interest in renting the property, who explained the fees had increased to £200 because, I insisted that I was only willing to pay £150, as advertised, initially and the letting agent reluctantly accepted. I have now been informed that my application has failed due to
  4. I've had a few issues with my EE Account that I opened in April Last Year. Most of which have got resolved but it was the handling and managing of the account which seriously got my back up. So I decided enough was enough and sent an email to EE's Executive Office as a final resort before CISAS complaints. Anyhow the complaints and incidents were as follows: BTOpenzone addon worked for about a week, moment I gave EE my PAC code from Three Mobile it stopped working and over a year on, still continues to be troublesome and works 2/10 times Added a Sharer SIM which was registered a
  5. Hi all, I hope that some one can give me some advice on an issue that has arisen with a policy we took out last Oct with EON to cover our boiler. I had the boiler serviced by a local company at the beginning of Oct as it hadn't been done in 18 months due to money being tight. Everything was given a clean bill of health and I have the paperwork and receipt to show this. Then after discussing it we decided to take out some cover at the end of the month and EON were offering a deal of £9.99 a month for the first 12 months. This covers me for an annual service and parts and repairs upto abou
  6. Hi there. My husband and I are tenants who signed an Assured Shorthold Tenancy for a 3 bedroom house in the summer of 2011, and we terminated the agreement on at the end of March 2013. I have highlighted the "backstory" in case it is relevant. I would really appreciate it if someone in the know could read it and let us know if it’s relevant enough to be included in our submission to the DPS. I have given each part of our deposit nightmare a sub-heading so it's easier to digest what's going on. BACKSTORY. Had a reasonably friendly relationship with our LL's, who were also o
  7. Hi All, my situation is that I have been self employed for many years, working from home on a part time basis whilst acting as a carer from y wife. In 2005 I attempted to claim carers Allowance but at the time my taxable earnings were marginally too great to receive the benefit. I waited and applied again the following year, and was successful this time. Since 2007, all I have ever received, was a letter telling me I would continue to receive benefit and if my circumstances had changed, to inform them. My earnings stayed fairy constant, being around the limit. I contacted the carers
  8. Hi everyone this is my first time posting on these forums and i find myself in need of some advice! i took out a payday loan with mini credit which was due to be paid back on the 25th of October 2013, i started college and had a reduced income for that month and the forseeable future. after looking around mini credits website i realized there was hardly any way to contact them! i requested a call from them on the 20th of october and also sent an email asking for a repayment plan that same night only to have an automated response saying: Dear Sir/Madam Please use ww. minicredit .
  9. Hello all, My flatmate has recently moved out of our 2 bedroom flat. We moved in Sept this year and both signed a joint tenancy agreement. I have informed the letting agency who have informed me that: "The tenancy you have both signed means you are jointly and severely liable for all rent for the duration of the tenancy term. In order to be released from your contract you would have to find tenants to replace yourselves or the property is relet. You are responsible for all rent to the point of changeover and the ‘assignment of tenancy’ charge." I intend to reside in the p
  10. OK Background. I rented a house off Gumtree from a private agent on 01.05.12 The rent is £450 pm and I paid £450 deposit. The house is fully furnished. Ive had problems with the landlord from day 1. I dont know how to deal with her, she is very nice but very passive agressive and I dont want to anger her but Ive got a feeling im going to get reamed when I leave (1 yr tenancy). So I am preparing myself now. Upon moving in, I was never shown safety certificates. But managed to get her to pay for some electrical repairs. (the copper pipes have not been earthed wh
  11. I am currently undergoing a Employment Tribunal against my former employers for constructive dismissal as a result of a broken franchise agreement between two companies. In short, company A (franchisee) was set up to trade as company B (Franchisor). Disputes occurred between the two companies which ultimately ended their agreement with each other. All staff, including myself, signed contracts of employment with company A trading as company B. I have received correspondence from a tribunal judge who was happy to issue a default judgement against company A Ltd, however
