    • 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 got into debt and about 4 years ago I contacted CCCS who were fantastic and arranged for me to pay them £140 per month to keep the hounds from the door. I have done this religiously and never missed. I have had my wages slashed by a 1/3rd in my new job. CCCS now say that I cannot afford to pay anything (the least they accept is £45 per month) and are ready to drop me. I am worried to death about the harrassment and fear of dealing with this by myself. ALTHOUGH I have often wondered what all my debt consists of and how much of it is interest and charges for missed payments etc. All of the debt is unsecured. Should I go it alone and if so where do i begin. I successfully claimed back bank charges and PPI with the fabulous advice from this site. I do not want to run from the debt. I want to pay as little as possible so that I can live at the same time. Is there a chance i will lose my home through these debts? We have a joint mortgage but the debts are all in my name as it was solely my debt. Can I claim back charges etc to reduce the debts?? Please help as I feel am stuck between a pillar and a hard post!

Hi, thanks so much for the reply, some are with a debt collection agency.

AMERICAN EXPRESS £2200

BARCLAYCARD £2600 (one of these was previously a morgan stanley credit card, not sure why it changed to barclaycard)

BARCLAYCARD £3300

CAPITAL ONE BANK £870

CL FINANCE £410

FREDRICKSON INTERNATIONAL (DCA) £460

LLOYDS TSB CARDSERVICES £975

MOORCROFT DEBT RECOVERY (DCA) £12.500 ( All the interest was added to the amount I borrowed on this the minute I got the loan so I only borrowed about 8k which they advised me to do in order to clear my credit card, it was with EGG.)

MOORCROFT DEBT RECOVERY (DCA) almost finished this one. £30

 

Can you advise me?

There are options that you can decide on, do you want to send for CCA requests to your creditors to find out if they have any legal right to claim payments from you ? or do you want to offer them affordable payments ?, if you take a look at the templates page on the link below you will get an idea as to what you want to do in order to move forward, the CCA letter template is letter N, and there are letters for other options, take a look then post back on here for further advice.

Thanks, I think it might be best to see firstly if they have a legal right to claim payments via CCA? After all I am sure they would pick up every loophole in the system so why shouldnt I?? Then if they do....ask them to show me everything they have, would that be the subject access?

Thank you , I am thinking....CCA to see if I legally owe them the money, if so...subject access...to see what the debt consists of..... would I then be able to ask them to remove the charges and the interest on the account before I made them an affordable offer of payment?

Just send the CCA request, i have never heard of a hold the account letter, sometimes the creditor puts the account on hold in response to the CCA request whilst they try to find the CCA.

Keep us posted jojo, and as Ida said take it one step at a time, print your name at the bottom of the letter, dont sign your name, include an uncrossed £1.00 postal order and send it 1st class recorded delivery and keep the receipt safe.:)

I have recieved a response from Moorcroft, please can anyone advise my next move. I am getting a little scared! Thanks Guys, the main body or the letter minus my details of course is as follows.................

“We refer to your recently received letter requesting data as per Section 77-79 Consumer Credit Act 1974.

We duly confirm that we have requested the relevant documentation from our client and once received we will duly forward the same to you. Meanwhile, we duly confirm that all collection activity on the account has been put on hold and we will not seek to enforce payment of this debt until such time as the documentation has been supplied or we have advised you to the contrary.

In the meantime, however, we believe that it may be of assistance to all parties if we also take this opportunity to ensure any potential areas of dispute are addressed prior to any possible court action or further investigation. To this end can you provide an indication of the information you will be relying upon, when giving evidence to the court or information to the relevant statutory authorities in relation to the alleged subject matter of this account.

Please could you provide this information by return as this will ensure that all possible areas of dispute are identified as quickly as possible thereby minimizing potential costs and delays.”

No signed copy of CCA = Unenforcable, they are trying to bluff you , send them the account in dispute letter, print your name, do not sign.

Sending today, this is the correct one isnt it???

 

Dear Sirs,

 

Account Number: XXX

 

Re; your recent reply to my request under section 77-79 of the Consumer Credit Act 1974

 

I note that you have replied to the above by sending a copy of an application form and your companies current Terms and conditions I must inform you that this is not sufficient to comply with the request and that your company is still in default under the act.

 

To clarify, just sending the Terms and Conditions is a breach of the Act and Regulations as, apart from the information that the Regulations provide that you may exclude, the copy must be a “true copy” of the agreement.

 

This breach of the agreement can be demonstrated as follows;

As you will know section 180(1) (b) authorises, “the omission from a copy of certain material from the original, or the inclusion of certain material in condensed form.” This refers to statutory instruments made under the heading Copies of document regulations and in this care in particular to SI 1983/1557.

 

Before leaving section 180 there are two other sections that should be remembered these are:

 

Section 2(2) (a) A duty imposed by any provision of this Act (except section 35) to supply a copy of any document is not satisfied unless the copy supplied is in the prescribed form and conforms to the prescribed requirements;

 

And more importantly

 

Section 2(b) A duty imposed by any provision of this Act (except section 35) to supply a copy of any document is not infringed by the omission of any material, or its inclusion in condensed form, if that is authorised by regulations.

 

You will see that this quite clearly states that whilst certain items may be left out of the copy document the rest of the document must be in the form and contain all items as prescribed by the regulations.

 

Turning to the regulations regarding what may be omitted from these copies these are contained with SI 1983/1557.

 

The regulations state:

(2) There may be omitted from any such copy-

(a) any information included in an executed agreement, security instrument or other document relating to the debtor, hirer or surety or included for the use of the creditor or owner only which is not required to be included therein by the Act or any Regulations thereunder as to the form and content of the document of which it is a copy;

(b) any signature box, signature or date of signature (other than, in the case of a copy of a cancelable executed agreement delivered to the debtor under section 63(1) of the Act, the date of signature by the debtor of an agreement to which section 68(b) of the Act applies);

 

It is quite clear what can be omitted from the copy document, this again asserts that all other details of the agreement should presented in form and content as required by the regulations.

 

The requirements of the Agreement regulations 1983/1553 are very explicit in describing the form and content of an agreement and this as I have demonstrated also applies to the copy of any such agreement with the above mentioned proviso.

 

Nowhere within these regulations does it state that part of the agreement can be presented on a separate document headed terms and conditions.

It does state that all terms and conditions should be within the agreement document and is explicit of the form in which it is presented.

 

I hope this explains why your reply was unacceptable I await a True copy of my agreement and would remind you again that whilst the request has not been complied with the default continues

received this from cap one.....

 

please find enclosed a copy of your credit agreement as requested. In accordance with section 78 of the consumer credit act 1974 and the consumer credit (cancellation notices and copy documents) regulations 1983, this is your original agreement and if any terms have been varied then the copy agreement will include the updated terms. In addition, your personal details, the signature box, signature and date of signature have been omitted from the copy provided as permitted under regulation 3 of the consumer credit (cancellation and copy documents) Regulations 1983.

Your account is in default and the amount currently due and payable is .....

Under section 78 we are not required to provide a copy of the default notice and statement of default. However we can confirm that a statement of default was issued on .... June 2009.

 

They sent me t and c's and a credit agreement, no signature! Pleeeeease can someone advise me what to do next? Is this usual? Do they have to provide me with my signature???

 

Getting scared again! Gulp! xx

Quick update, got typical answers from barclays, ts and cs but no signatures etc (intend to fight them) got a signed egg agreement from moorcroft (I am making an offer of monthly payments altho a very small one due to my circumstances) Lloyds have completely ignored the cca requests and are just demanding payments (is this account in dispute?) shop direct have admitted they dont have a copy of an agreement so (I will offer a very small monthly payment) and cl finance havent even responded either (account in dispute).

 

Can anyone clear up the charging order on your house threat? I do have a mortgage in joint names (not married so different names anyhow). As the debt with moorcroft is 12k and I am gonna offer a £10 monthly payment, I feel they may make this threat. Can they do it even if the mortgage is NOT in JUST my name only? Does it have to go to court first? My partner doesnt even know about this debt and if they put a charging order on our home, I fear I will lose more than just my house. Please advise???? Thanks everyone. x
