    • look up on land registry who owns the property then get in contact with your local environmental heath dept.   dx  
    • Hello all,   I have recently moved into a new property. The bedroom window is facing a bunch of commercial crates which have trash on top of them. The trash is maybe two metres away from the window, making it impossible for the window to be open (I am also afraid of rats being there).   The other windows of the property are facing a communal, enclosed area, which is making it difficult for the property to be properly ventilated. I have already raised this issue with my estate agency and they are trying do to something about it (to be honest, if I leave everything to them, this issue won't be solved until my tenancy is finished, and that is more than one year away).   I am asking for advice, or how could I approach this issue.   I have spoken to my council and, since they do not deal in private property, there is nothing they can do, at least this is what they have told me.   The property with the trash is not owned by my landlord. It is an open space, with big crates, closed off by a fence. If I could, I would climb those crates and remove the trash myself but I cannot. I also cannot climb out the window to reach the trash, as the window is too small.   At times, I see a car in that property but I have never seen the driver. I left a note in the car's window explaining the issue and giving my number. This was around a week ago and nobody came back to me.   
    • Hi   First off ALL Tenants need to re report all the different repairs again via their repairs procedure. Yes its good to get a list of all properties repairs with photo/video evidence signed by all property tenants but you all need to fight this individually as well as a group.   Next you all need to look up your rights on Repair i.e. The Right to Repair Scheme and also their Complaints Procedure.   http://www.legislation.gov.uk/uksi/1994/133/made   https://england.shelter.org.uk/housing_advice/repairs/right_to_repair_for_council_tenants   All Tenants need to take control back with these repair and ask in writing titling any letter 'FORMAL COMPLAINT' and stating the repair and why it hasn't been carried out to date and an exact date when it will be completed.   You also require clarification whether these Repairs come under the Right to Repair Scheme and if so why we were never informed of this. (delete or amend)   You also require copies of the following:   Right to Repair Scheme Policy (Not the Leaflet Repair and Maintenance Policy (Not the Leaflet) Solar Panel Policy (Not the Leaflet) Complaints Policy (Not the Leaflet) Equality & Diversity Policy (Not the Leaflet) When you get the above policies you need to take your time reading them and just think to yourself 'DID THEY DO THAT' in relation to your issue and if not mark it this way you build a list of what they haven't done/followed as per there own Policies and use it against them.   They will have time limits to complete repairs within for Emergency, Urgent, Routine repairs and if they exceed that time limit and need to extend it remember it is with you the tenants agreement not them telling you and tough you can wait.   (bear in mind any repairs during COVID-19 the time limits are now different and most routine repairs are stopped)  
    • I was on UC in late March, and recently received some quite non-committal message that the commitments would be returning, but no indication when.     If I remember correctly the expectation was that we could find at least one job per day to which to apply, or some such nonsense.   Given that the government can only guess how many workplaces will be safe :  1) to commute to/from at the time of job application; 2) to work in at the time of job application;    3) to commute to/from at the date of starting a job ; 4) to work in at the date of starting a job,  5) to commute to/from at the date permanent WFH is dropped; 6) to work in at the date permanent WFH is dropped,    and given that we have lost 20% of our economy, I fail to see how they can both reasonably and immediately mandate any minimum figure of jobs we must apply for whilst this virus just killed over 135 people in the UK (stats released today).  That is only down from 155 last week, and about 175 a fortnight back.   At this rate it will be another 7 weeks MINIMUM before the mortality rate is zero - if it ever reaches zero before the inevitable second wave.

    • Hi,  
      I was in Sainsbury’s today and did scan and shop.
      I arrived in after a busy day at work and immediately got distracted by the clothes.
       
      I put a few things in my trolley and then did a shop.
      I paid and was about to get into my car when the security guard stopped me and asked me to come back in.
       
      I did and they took me upstairs.
      I was mortified and said I forgot to scan the clothes and a conditioner, 5 items.
      I know its unacceptable but I was distracted and Initially hadn’t really planned to use scan and shop.
       
      No excuse.
      I offered to pay for the goods but the manager said it was too late.
      He looked at the CCTV and because I didn’t try to scan the items he was phoning the police.
       
      The cost of the items was about £40.
      I was crying at this point and told them I was a nurse, just coming from work and I could get struck off.
       
      They rang the police anyway and they came and issued me with a community resolution notice, which goes off my record in a year.
      I feel terrible. I have to declare this to my employer and NMC.
       
      They kept me in a room on my own with 4 staff and have banned me from all stores.
      The police said if I didn’t do the community order I would go to court and they would refer me to the PPS.
       
      I’m so stressed,
      can u appeal this or should I just accept it?
       
      Thanks for reading

I have a small company (one man band). Had a dodgy supplier who was very obviously overcharging for two years (easy to prove). Dispute went to County Court. I responded to claim, thought it had been settled, but unfortunately I was traveling for quite a while and missed a notice from the judge so when I arrived back there was a judgment against my company. I have just applied to set judgment aside showing my plane ticket! And showing what the supplier was doing.

 

Today I find through the door that there is a Bailiff notice and its a High Court one. The judgment is just over 600 quid but with all the charges the Bailiff is claiming almost 1300. I could pay the money (am not flush though) but am darned if this dodgy supplier is going to get away with it. Even though I've been pretty ill recently.

 

Advice needed:

Do I respond to bailiff at all? eg. send them fax telling them that have applied to have judgment set aside?

Are they likely to come back soon?

Our office space is sublet from another company, so the stuff in the office is the the other company's - but heard horror stories about bailiffs breaking in. How likely given two companies?

They also list my home address on warrant which is just wrong for a company surely? Will they go there as well? Do I notify them they shouldn't?

 

Also it's a lesson that no good deed goes unpunished. After a chat with supplier at start of court case I thought we'd come to settlement. I had planned to complain to Trading Standards, but changed my mind. Given the way the supplier were overcharging us they must be doing it to all their clients. Have lost my goodwill. Trading Standard here we come.

You as a director and your company, I understand, should be treated as separate entities and unless there are some issues as to how you have been trading I don't see how you can be tied into action against your company.

 

I think this requires the help of someone more knowledgeable.

They can not chase you personally chase you for debts on the limited company unless you have signed a personal guarantee.

 

They may have your home address if you have your home as your registered office. It is the case I would change the registered office to your accountant/solicitors. At least then if the bailiffs visit the registered office there will be no arhument about what are private/company assets.

 

Key advice is do not let them in!

 

If they do enter ensure that you have documentary evidence from your Landlord to confirm that you do not own the contents of your office - a lease agreement with an inventory ideally.

 

If there is nothing to take they will leave you alone. HCEO's are private companies paid by results. If they do not think there is anything worth taking they should leave you alone - then you can look at getting the judgement set aside.

I agree.

 

Make sure your registered office is not your home.

Home address has never been registered office. Never traded from home address.

 

So far they just shoved paperwork through letterbox yesterday. They have not been inside.

 

Not sure if I did the right thing: I sent a fax to bailiffs this morning putting them on notice that application to set aside judgment is pending and that the home address has never been used for trading and is inappropriate. Maybe that will encourage them?

 

What I want to know is under what circumstances they can break in - heard horror stories and believe they are allowed to for a company. Do they have to have been inside before or is that just a theory?

Is there a web site that clearly sets out all this stuff?

something is not correct here. please check out the actual defendant of the claim. To me it sounds as the claim is against you personally. If it is against the company there is no reason in the world the bailiff would go to your private residence. That would be unlawful and as a matter of fact there are much better means to get to either your money or assets. They could make the company bankrupt or put an administration order on it. freeze your bank accounts and so on...

 

It sounds to me as if they gone after you privately why if l were you l would make sure that l have not signed some form of personal guarantee pertaining to your dealings with the supplier.

The HCEO Bailiffs are perfectly entitled to attend you home address even if the debt is for your Ltd Co. If they believe there may be assets there, they are not breaking the law. Many people have computer and office equipment and company vehicles at there homes.

 

The Bailiffs cannot enforce against you personally as a Director, unless you have signed as guaruntor.

 

An application to set aside judgment does NOT stop enforcement.
