  1. Eldest daughter is just about to move out of a house she rents with three friends in London- it's rented and managed by one of the bigger London agents. They are all listed on the tenancy agreement. She's been there several years and the tenancy agreement has been extended etc. There is provision in the contract to move out mid tenancy, subject to a charge, and various conditions, including finding a replacement tenant. She's been made aware of the Right to Rent legislation which appears to apply from 1st Feb by the agent. Now, she's planning to move before 1st Feb, and they have a new tenant lined up and approved by the agency / landlord.. However, she's being told that the other three tenants (who are also within contract) have to have the Right to Rent check done- at a not inconsiderable charge - and that she's likely to have to bear the cost of this. As I understand it, the legislation applies to new tenancies. I would also have thought that said managing agent would have all the documents already on file to satisfy the legislation, taken as part of the screening and reference procedure when they moved in... She's also been told that the fee to change tenant is £50 more than it says in the contract that she signed.. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
  2. Hi ell enn Sorry for sending this directly but not too sure how to start a thread Let me start from the beginning back in Dec 2008 I was made redundant and missed payments to GE Money (unfortunately I have my mortgage through these people), they hounded me constantly with phone calls over the 4months I was out of work, however I always explained my position. I was offered a job within a few weeks but failed the medical due to high blood pressure so medication took 3 months to work. But I started in March. They said that they would go to court for possession of my house this was standard procedure( this was in May after I started work) they also said if I paid an agreed amount then this would not happen. I foolishly believed them and about 4 days before the court hearing I received the court papers, i Phoned again they said I did not have to attend as I had stuck to my agreement. (Foolish me).so I now have a suspended order on my house I now have fallen behind again since this lovely government has stopped my children's tax credits all 500,00 pound a month, I now owe 2900.00 and they are threatening repossession again. I had previously complained about their bank charges and they offered a refund which was short all the interest they charged and survey fees and such, and I have a ppi claim in process with the FOS which they denie is their doing. I refused the offer but they paid the amount into my account anyway so I requested and received a Dsar. Reading through the dsar in the phone conversations it actually says that they told me it would not go to court!!. I also have a letter dated one month after the court case stating that they were going to apply for suspended order?(June 09) After reading many of your posts I have sent them a statement of intended payments and the budget sheet, they are not accepting my offer and are going to proceed with the repossession. Could you please help me with the n244 form do you think I should mention about the underhanded way they got the suspended order the first time round As I have proof this happened, also the charges and ppi Sorry for the war and piece regards Umvubu ps. i have not had a warrant yet just the threatening letter from GE
