  1. I am enquiring on behalf of a friend who recently changed employer - he is still doing the same job but through a sub contractor. When he finished, under the instruction of a supervisor, he left electronic items he had been provided with by the employer in the company office. He has since been informed that these items have gone missing and so he owes them over £1000 and his last weeks wages were withheld to go towards this amount. Are the company allowed to do that and is there anything he can do to appeal this? Thank you for any advice.
  2. Needing help with regard to which route to go down to get back my refundable damage bond. To cut a very long story short, I booked a short caravan break through a private owner website. Paid the full amount upfront, included in this was a refundable £75 damage bond to be returned within 7 days of leaving the let, if left as found and damage free. I paid for the holiday with my credit card as refused to pay by bank transfer. I contacted the third party by email to book the holiday and paid by card over the phone, she said that the money would be paid into the owners account on the holi
  3. Cold callers hiding behind withheld numbers could be fined more than £2m in a new law to be announced today. From 16 May, all direct marketing companies registered in the UK will need to display their phone numbers when making unsolicited calls, even if they have call centres overseas. Companies can risk fines of up to £2 million from Ofcom and a further £500,000 from the ICO if they continue to bombard consumers with unwanted c
  4. I viewed a flat yesterday morning for a rental. I made a payment of 350 pound and was told the property would be taken off of the market when I make an offer. I was also told the money would be refundable if the landlord does not accept my offer. At the end of the day I made an offer of 340pw. The landlord refused and counter offered 350pw. I declined that and the agent suggested 345pw as a compromise. I told him to see what the landlord said, but had yet to discuss with my brother, who i was renting with. Having discussed with my brother, who was unsure about 340pw to be
  5. Hi My husband has been at the same company for over 30 years. He remembers distinctly when he joined he worked a week in hand. He has now resigned and going to work at another company. The company he originally worked for were acquired by a big blue chip company. He has emailed HR and that say that the onus is on him to prove that he wasn't paid the week in hand when he changed from weekly to monthly paid about 20 years ago. He does not have his wage slips for 20 years ago. Is the onus really on him? He distinctly remembers not being paid that money and he wants it. Any advice on what
  6. Honourable Caggers, Please I need help to recover rent deposit I paid on 01/02/14 to prospective landlord. Details: My partner and I planned to relocate to a new city, so I saw flat to let advert on gumtree when I visited my friend who lives in the city we intend moving to, I rang landlord to view flat but his dates for viewings weren't convenient to my schedules, so we arranged that my friend viewed this flat on my behalf. After viewing my friend said it was okay, so I paid deposit on said date; hoping/wishing to sign lease and pay rent when I move in at later date to be agree
  7. If you dial 141 before the normal number, your number is withheld from the person called. But if you try this with a text message, it does not work. Does anyone know why? How do I withhold my number on text messages?
  8. I’m a carer to a wheelchair user with whom I attended court with as a witness two weeks ago. Whilst at court, I witnessed the claimant’s barrister and solicitor withhold new evidence before and during a high court hearing and The evidence was then handed to the court after judgment was given. I have no doubt this led to an unsafe judgment against the Defendant. I believe that the claimant’s representatives misled the court and interfered with the administration of justice. How do I go about reporting this and to whom?
  9. Hi there, I'm hoping somebody will be able to offer me a little bit of advice. I've recently changed jobs, and in my final pay my employers didn't include several hundred pounds of shift allowance I should have had for my last run of night shifts. I chased a number of times, and was eventually told (by e-mail, so I have this in writing) that the outstanding overtime would be paid in the next pay run. When this didn't happen, I again chased it up, and was subsequently advised that my shift allowance was discretionary, and that as I was allowed full pay for a couple of emergency operat
  10. Hi all, I eventually submitted my PPI claim to Black Horse and it has been upheld and interest has been awarded. £1100+ is the amount of PPI I have paid in premiums (exact figures are not relevant at this stage) BUT BH say: "we propose to use the refund of PPI premiums due to help reduce your arrears" (the above £1100+) and actually only pay me the interest of £600+. They provide a tel. no. to call "If you do not wish us to use the refund of premiums to reduce your arrears please contact us onn 0844 800 7915". More background: I took out a loan from BH i
  11. Hi all, I posted about this back in April, but figured I still need to deal with this! In short, we agreed for part of the deposit to be kept by the landlord when we moved out of our old house. This was fine, until the agent decided that they would keep amount for a 'renewal fee'. We didn't agree with this, but the agent went ahead and refunded an amount less their 'fee', having told us that they would first call us back to explain on what grounds they were doing so. The additional deduction was not agreed by us or the landlord, and was processed on the last day that we could have p
