    • @Jaybee in CF Claimant commitments are agreed between yourself and the Job Centre Work Coach.  So you will be able to discuss the local jobs market, transport available and all of the local issues.   As it is a two way constructive relationship, you can research all of the relevant information, so when you have your claimant commitment agreed,  the information you have obtained can be considered.              
    • 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

About a year ago I stopped paying HFC - well they had defaulted me and refused to remove the default.

 

I got a general default stating something along the lines of if I don;t pay on time in future we will default you. There were one or two earlier ones which I paid as I recall. I did try to get them to reply to my query 'why exactly did you default me' but received no reply.

 

I have sar'd them many many months ago and am about to do again to get it all up-to-date.

 

I have an FOS complaint ongoing (haven't we all) about them retaliating to each action I took and to their so-called default.

 

I will get organised soon and post the details with scans on here but for now some more background general information.

 

I received a phone call seemingly from Robinson Way. I searched and found email addresses and sent an initial 'go away' letter to RW. I am now sar'ing them as they have annoyed me and I want to see details fo dates or to see if they did any tracing. I have also contacted OFT to report them for contating me without any assignment of any sorts from anybody.

 

So neither have HFC / Marbles written to me to say RW are going to pursue this debt etc. I guess I need to report them to OFT as well then?

 

I will now also update FOS on latest situation. more paperwork but I'm getting more organised although I do wonder why Marbles has come alive again? Must be FOS or ICO complaint getting close and this is latest retaliation?

 

Be interested in any fellow Marbles sufferers have similar experiences? I believe my 'application form' was from 1999?

Should Aviemore (who?) have told me something at all about them being in ownership of my debt? (HFC / marbles)

it would be nice.

however as HFC are useless at providing valid CCA's

i'd justfire that off and say goodbye to the dca!

please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

 

if everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's tomorrow

the biggest financial industry in the UK, DCA;s would collapse overnight.

Hi wtwt

 

I only knew about this site end of last year, so when I did my CCA request to HFC Bank, in January 2009 I also got copy of my 'priority Application Form'. This is dated 2002,

 

In July 2008 HFC had sold/assigned my c/c debt to CL Finance and I'm in process of sending them (CL Finance) a ltr about Marbles not supplying a CCA but an application form.

 

Interesting though about Marbles - I'll be subbing!

Well after ignoring my letters of complaint with replies that they were putting the 'collection' of the debt on hold I get a letter from them today saying they've passed it back to 'Marbles' with their reasons why. Not bothering to tell me why but say it's in response to my 'recent' (!!!) 'query'.. (!!!!!)

 

Now that's RW out of the way I'm now going to seek revenge on them for non-compliance with SAR (not all included) and their pathetic response to their so-called complaints procedure. Now re we allowed to ask OFT to 'log' each complaint or not - are they precise in what we are able to ask them to 'log'? I know OFT do not actively get involved in individual complaints but track patterns - am still confused about what they I should refer to the OFT and what to the FOS (who are not very effective to put it politely).

 

Well I guess I will just wait until the next installment.....

Regarding my HFC / Marbles account which I have not paid for over 18 months.

 

Apparantly SAV credit bought the account (I never did receive anything about this at the time)

 

Now have one envelope with 2 letters in it:

 

1. Letter form Aqua stating 'account was legally assigned to Lowell Portfolio 1 Ltd...' etc (says it's for an Aqua Card???? Never had an Aqua Card)

 

2. Letter from Lowell Portfolio 1 stating the SAV credit account ... 'has been sold to Lowell Portfolio 1 Ltd on..'

 

Letter return address is Leeds. SAV credit Ltd address registered in Kent - This is only address of Aqua on the letter. Am I right to assume Lowell Portfolio 1 wrote the Aqua letter. Seem to recall something a bit amiss about some DCAs doing this with letterheads? How else could the Aqua letter have mysteriously got into this envelope from Leeds with the Lowell Portfolio 1 letter.

 

Am I right to assume the usual cca letter needs to be sent to Lowell Portfolio 1. Should I ask for NOA details (which type) until after I SAR them?

 

I will probably also SAR this Aqua company / SAV Credit for more information anyhow.

 

Any other advice on what to be wary of with Lowell Portfolio 1 - I know they have a bad reputation for underhanded methods but a quick list of what to be wary of would be good.

 

Background:

 

HFC/Marbles account in dispute on one or two issues with useless FOS - awaiting Ombudsman as adjudicator passed it on.

ICO found HFC/Marbles had breached DPA in my favour but that means nothing really.

No enforceable cca

 

What's amazing now is that this sort of letter would have got me all stressed out. Now I come on here, ask for advice and get a good allround idea what to do next. I do not feel intimidated as in the past but am wary I need to keep on top of the situation.

Put it this way; if I wrote to you and said I had taken over your electricity bill and in future you should pay it to me and not your electric company, would you? Would you be further inclined to do it if i put a badly forged letter from your electric comapny in the same envelope? Tell 'em untill you get a proper letter from the OC they get nothing. Chances are the OC can't be bothered, so why should you?

Well Lowlife had bought a 'debt' from some unknown company whom I'd never heard of called SAV Credit. It seems this so-called SAV credit have told Lowlife that they cannot find it as it's a long time ago. Lowlife say they are going away but if SAV Credit whoever they are find it they'll come bak and entertain me.

 

For additional information SAV Credit (whoever they are) have not replied to my SAR whatsoever. Nothing. Nowt.

 

Questions:

 

1. Does this letter from Lowell mean they accept they ahve no CCA and therefore they should not only lay-off but also not be allowed to sell this o nor either should they be or have put anything down with a CRA?

 

2. Am i allowed to CCA this SAV credit also and even if they do not own the debt anymore am I right to assume if they do not supply a CCA (in whatever form) then they should not HAVE or in future should share my adata etc with 3rd parties or with CRAs? Am interested if I can work backwards as it seems they defaulted me on the CRA details (and I'd never heard of them?).

 

3. Are new 'owners' allowed to take over the details on the XRA records or should any default be in name of original company who defaulted me?

 

(I think it was originally HFC / Marbles but need to check)

You can CCA who you like but in this instance why bother? In fact why boher with Lowells?

 

It's the sensible option for a dca re a CCA not being found and the DCA going away until it is at which point and if it's not stat barred you can then fire off you CCA's but for now just let it sit and rot.

 

Was the debt assigned? have you received said assignment notice etc?

 

Your default issue wont easily be resolved, CRA's in my opinion are nothing more than blame shifters and always pass the buck.

 

I'd do nothing unless the default is causing you problems? How long since the last payment on the debt?

Um, not sure I'd agree with the 'credit needed by customers' their front page shows a card at 35.9 apr, with the best will in the world no matter how poor your situation is you don't need a credit card with that kind of interest rate.

If SAV have failed to respond to a SAR, you can sue them for an order to comply, and damages.

I thought all that I could do regarding non-compliance was report to ICO who then say 'tut tut' and cannot fine them? Can I sue them 'after' the ICO makes a 'verdict' or not?

 

Regarding SAV credit - never had anything from them that I recall until Lowlife appeared with some sort of letter of assignment from Aqua . HFC/Marbles never sent me anything neither did this SAV/Aqua lot until Lowell got involved.

 

I tend not to reply to Lowlife and they send letters saying we will nto contact you again and then they just cannot help themselves.

 

I think I will try to get my files in order and then possibly start some action against SAV / Aqua and see if I can get something done regarding my default from HFC/Marbles initially which now seems to have SAV Credit's name on it now???
