    • 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

Maybe I am missing something here, but I don't know.

 

After opening my mail with mis-spelt address in a lovely yellow envelope, I am filled with dread as it comes from their Pre-Court Division. scared0006.gif This is made worse because it also says NOTICE OF INTENDED LITIGATION

Oh no!!!! scared0008.gif;)

 

Anyway, their fees don't make any sense to me.

 

Balance £14X.XX

 

Solicitors costs for issue of claim form £50.00. What? Wouldn't you have to errrr, win, then ask for this?

 

Court fees for issue of Claim Form £20.00 ???? Not £30 then?

 

Solicitors Costs for Entering Judgement (by default) £25.00. Oh please, residents of la-la land.

 

It's all irrelevant because they won't take it to court, and I couldn't give a shiny one if they did. But they've a cheek with these 'scary' designed to induce panic - look how much money you can save bullcr*p letters.

 

What a bunch of self-involved chimps with delusions of adequacy (I nabbed that from someone here, lol)

 

I love the nugget at the bottom of the letter - 'please note we have confirmed with a major public utility that you are in occupancy at the above address (the one they couldn't spell right) Well, no s**t Sherlock, that's whose debt it is.

 

Cheque for £30 sent to utility - I hope they don't give it to Moorcroft - heaven forbid. Btw, my electric jumped up from £6 a week when I moved here to £25 a week! Now I'm with Scottish Power it's less than £6 a week. It's only a diddy flat, above utility company knows full well I am in major dispute with that huge 6 week bill. :mad: They'll get it in dribs and drabs I suppose, but Moorcroft are getting nothing of me, directly at least.

Sorry to butt in but have been searching for advice on this very topic. I too have received this morning a shiny yellow letter, despite requesting a subject access request from Moorcroft last week. They have not responded to that letter. This is all getting on top of me folks. Really, really don't know where to turn next. Can anyone help?

Hi rapunzel1 , its always best to start your own thread that way the info put forward can not be mistaken for your answers, from the little knowledge that I have gleemed from other caggers I think that you should SAR the OC and only CCA the debt collection firm, and you have to allow 40 days for a SAR, also moorcroft tend to post letters that appear to be more serious then the last then generally give up so don't worry to much about their colourful letters.

Thank you so much for coming to my aid Sleeping Dog, and sorry for posting in the wrong place, I am very new here. Unfortunately I think I've dealt with everything wrongly. I CCA'd the original creditor, who had an enforceable agreement. I then tried to negotiate a repayment programme with them and asked for an expenditure sheet. They said they would forward one to me, the next thing I receive is a nasty letter from Moorcroft saying they were acting on behalf of the original creditor.

 

As I had not received any notification from my original creditor that they'd passed the debt on, I subject access requested Moorcroft. OMG really don't know what I'm doing, do I? Help!!

Rapunzel1, do start your own thread so you can get advice directly on your issue - it will be clearer and more helpful for you.

 

You will soon learn they are powerless cheats relying on fear. :) Stick around and you'll see.

Don't let these morons make you worry.
