    • 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

Hi i handed my carf back to park motor finance on wednesday. The inspector is only in newcastle one day a month and never has any appointments unless you want 2 -3 months. I live in newcastle and had to drive 400 miles top newport to return the car.

The list they send you is complete rubbish, they cant impose these 'rules/terms' as the original agreement will say if you have taken 'reasonable care' of the goods. Reasonable care is not defined ont he agreement or in any other paperwork so they cant just impose these rules. My car was a 10yr old merc with 128k on it and i was crapping myself about them trying to charge me for all sorts.


Anyways most of the inspection went ok, but there was a sligh misfire on acceleration on the test drive after an emergency stop. The car was stopped and turned off and drove fine after witht he inspector and myself driving it. He then decided to plug it into his computer and read all the fault codes. He wouldnt really show me the computer but said there was 14 faults. There was no lights on the dash board at all and the car was driving fine, it had also just driven 400 miles!!!


He proceeded to tell me that the car would now be devalued as it had a missfire and i would have to pay for it to be fixed or pay the diffrence of what it should make in auction. How can they possibly say that????


Anyways, they took the car back and said i was to expect a bill of some sort. They can go to hell and i will take them to court. No where on the list they sent me did it say that if there was a problem on roadtest the car would be subject to a full diagnosis check. They just try to intimidate you.


I took about 150 pictures of my car and also did videos of me driving to show it was running fine and no lights on the dash.


Bring it on park motor finance!!

In full agreement with postggj on this. Don't just pay up, they refused to let you see the fault codes (if there were any) and it is up to them to prove the faults they claim were showing.


And definately as above, do not accept a single quote and make sure you get copies of the quotes on the garage headed paper of where they were done.


They can't insist on a Merc franchise as the law allows repairs at any garage without affecting the warranty, and this would still apply now.


I just noticed this bit:


I asked to see them and have a copy of them. he said that it would have to be sent to a garage for a full diagnosis and an estimate cost of repair! and i would have to pay for that!


An estimate is no good, it could double in price, you must have a Quote. Any competent garage can give a quote.
