    • 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 was wondering if someone woud be kind enough to help me at all please, well i should say my father in law.

 

he has a car yard, and well tbh he isnt a silly man at all, but when it comes to technical stuff he isnt right up there in the world of knowledge tbh.

 

The reason i am writing to try and help him, is that he sells cars on some land that was owned by someone else who he paid rent to. Sadly the guy who woned the landhas passed on last week and now the father in law is going to wind up and enjoy life.

 

he isnt in debt, never has been and owes no-one a penny. BUT he is worried about a landline agreement which, tbh even has me puzzled. It seems a contract was issued by DIGITEL (digiteldirect.com) for a digital network and telephone system., a digital samsung display handset, a fax machine and a digital enhance cordless phone.

 

The totally mad thing is that the above website now directs to fabspider.com. His bills now come from them and he is paying line rental!!!!

 

The contract states that he is to pay £58 a month for all of that, but is to have free installation, free line rental, free broadband, ( he didnt know this until last week and never has had a pc-i do his pictures for autotrader at home)free fax machine, and £50 cashhback for 4 motnhs. The phoneline and calls are to stay with unicom who i believe he has now cancelled with and is now with fabspider!!!! The contract date of signing was 27/02/08.

 

My father in law though the term was for 72 weeks and not 72 months as it was always always his intention to retire in 2010 and therefore would not have run the risk of over comiting himself.

 

Now, on top of that, there is a direct debit form, for business equipment finance. My father in law insists he hasnt had any finance (and tbh i believe him as he pays cash for everything regardless how much stuff is) and well tbh, what has me worried is that the alleged signature from him on the DD form , does NOT match any of the others that are officially his.

 

The date of that form is 18/03/08:?

 

Now it appears from what i can see that all the equipment has come from Siemens on a hp agreement for all the samsung stuff listed above ie fax machine phone etc.

 

The £50 cashback for 4 montsh has never happened from what ic an see on his statementsand on 31st march 08 was billed £153 and he has no idea why or what for. It was paid by dd and then all paymenyt sto last month have been £58 as what has been described as FREE but then a finance hp agreement has been made.

 

Has anyone got any ideas as to what i can do for the father in law as he really does not want to be paying out another 58 month for the next 4 years, and especially as he has no business from next week.

It's a bit hard to decipher that lot, but if he suspects that he has goods and services that he has not signed an agreement for, then he should send a cca request which will cost £1.

 

If the signatures don't match then he don't pay easy as that. Should the companies get funny, he can ask where they got this so called signature and throw in the word 'fraud' somewhere puting the burdon of proof squarely on their shoulders.

 

I would also cancel any direct debits and wait for letters demanding payment so he know exactly who is taking this money from his account.

 

He might have legitimately signed but been conned in a similar manner to a lot of utility company sellers who purport to be doing a survey or something and get a signature at the bottom only for someone to later descover that they have had their gas and electric changed to another company.

 

You need to go through his paperwork throughly to see if there are any copies of these 'agreements' and exactly what the wording is on them.

Telecom products are not covered by the CCA, only credit (ie sale of money).

 

6 years is a long time to sign a contract for. I don't know any other company that does this length, however as he signed up for all this I don't know what he can do.


If in doubt, contact a qualified insured legal professional (or my wife... she knows EVERYTHING)

 

Or send a cheque or postal order payable to Reclaim the Right Ltd.

A lot of info and a whopping mess. This firm made most of its money by promising telco services and arranging equipment which would be lieased to business users. This was because it is 100% reclaimable against business taxes, so on the whole it doesn;t come out of his profits, it is added to his running costs.

 

This will be a business arrangement, to there are lots of consumer law benefits that will NOT apply here - and on the basis of the minimum term mistake - as he's agreed to it, and signed for it it cannot be argued that it was thought to be 1.5 years and not 6 years duration. The issue of the Direct Debit signature isn;t a real issue as he's not disputing he made the arrangement to pay for his services - he could just as easily cancel that, but he'd STILL HAVE TO PAY by a different means - cash, cheque or whatever.

 

The all important document is his service contract or contracts for the equipment and lines/broadband. Only by reading this and the T&C's he's agreed to, will you get a better idea of what these liabilities are.
