    • @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

Hello Everyone :)

 

Can I ask for advice on a question please-

 

Does it matter if you send a creditor your own I&E sheet or do you have to use a CCCS/Payplan etc generated one?

 

The reason I ask is that John Lewis keep asking me for wage slips, copy of my car hire purchase agreement and number of people in my household to assess me further.

 

This is all on my I&E sheet that a kind member on this board helped me with.

 

I have sent them this twice now though :evil:

 

They have actually stopped interest which I am happy with so dont know what to do :-|

 

Thanks All

You can send your own I & E form to them. They have no rights to see wage slips/hire purchase agreements etc. Have you seen all of their paperwork for your credit? If not then ask them to send you a copy of the customer credit agreement they hold for your account.

 

There is a letter in the templets section for this. Send it away unsigned, by recorded delivery and with a £1 postal order. They then have 12+2 working days to get the agreement back to you or else you can stop paying them a penny.


Beating the DCA's day by day

 

My fight:

NDR - CCA'd 12+2 passed

Bank of Scotland - CCA'd 12+2 passed

CFS - Win by Technical Knock-out!:lol:

HFC Bank - CCA'd 12+2 passed

Chantry Collections - CCA sent

 

Time flies like an arrow

Fruit flies like a banana :D

 

<---------- Have I given you top advice, have I made you laugh, click on the scales, it won't hurt you! :grin:

Hi Berry

 

Thanks for your reply. Yes I have CCA'd them and it was enforceable. I am surprised that they have stopped interest and charges which is good.

 

Worried that they will start charging interest again if I dont send them wageslips etc...

And thats the rub... whilst they have no RIGHTS to this information, they will state that its required by their own internal processes.

 

If you have put down the correct amount of income on your own I&E then you could do what I did... that's scan in a recent payslip and then edit it in paintbrush or some other program to remove EVERYTHING except for my name and the amount of pay. No NI number or tax details etc.

Thanks Shadow.

 

I know this sounds dumb but if I just send a wage slip they wont assume it is all disposable will they?

 

I just feel with an I&E form it shows the full picture.

 

Also should I send a copy of my car HP Agreement? I would have thought thats personal.

 

I think I'm babbling now....!

Don't send the wage slip, just the I&E. They have no right to anything else at this stage. For sure there is an element of trust but they need to be reasonable.

They have had this I&E twice now !

Do you think a judge would argue that it is a reasonable request to see my wageslips?

As I said I blanked out everything bar the income... this matched what my income was stated on my I&E and proved that I wasnt lying on how much I was paid. I put a covering letter together just stating something along the lines of "Please find enclosed my last payslip, this confirms my total income for the month as given in my I&E previously sent to yourselves"

 

I havent sent any other documentation they have requested and I'm not going to, I just wanted to show that I wasnt lying on my I&E.

 

Sequenci has vastly more experience than me so if doing it all again I'd follow the advice given :-D :-D

If you have the time to send a blanked out wage-slip then you're doing more than you reasonably have to. They can't argue with that!

My guess is they want to see the agreement to see the worth of your car as an asset and how they might be able to obtain that asset in the worst case scenario. DO NOT SEND THIS DOCUMENT

 

As to children, its prob cos they have a value assigned to every child and in their calculations they allow a set amount of disposable income and costs for meals per child. Not sure on the impact of letting them know this, wouldnt think it negative.

 

Dont forget individual debts are personal, nobody except yourself are liable for your alleged debts.
