    • @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

hi can any body help me .i have been sent a county court claim and i need help on how to write a letter for defence and also how to go about counterclaiming . the basics are . i owe the claiment £1000 i dont dispute that even though there was never any agreement its the way he has gone about bringing this case in his wording of the claim .his letters prior seem to be correct in the way he has gone about it , as alot of people in this world know anger is not the way to solve a dispute , but that is what brought this about in the first place ( the anger was not on my side but his ) i am now having to fight my corner couterclaiming £1850 for work i have carried out for the claiment that i never invoiced for at the time (stupid i know but i had trusted the person at the time of doing this work ). now i dont know how to start this letter to the court for the defence and the counterclaim (is it the court i,m addressing or is it the claimant ??? etc ) if you ask me any questions i will be open and honest to both sides of the story , there are all sorts of issues i need to address both in the defence and the counterclaim but i dont know where to start . i dont want to ramble on at this part ,i just need help and will answer any questions relating to this sorry state of affairs that could cost me dearly if i dont manage to get my side of the story correctly over to the court .i feel this case is long winded and has rights and wrongs on both sides but someone who may have been in my sittuation may not agree .

i have another 14 days to get this letter of defence and counterclaim back to court and i just want to get it right (i appologise in advance for my english and grammer please go with with me on that one )

Hi and welcome

 

Are you able to scan up the particulars of the claim? if not then just type the details omitting any personal info and don't put exact amounts.

 

You should be able to find this thread now I've subscribed to it and I have told you on your other thread how to find this thread.

Can you post up the POC (minus your personal details) please, woodpecker?

 

Can you also say approx. how much you are owed, what for & the approx. dates of when the work was done.

 

Did the claimant send you a letter before action, giving you notice of legal action before issuing the claim?

 

Has the claimant issued any invoices etc. for the amounts he says you owe him?

 

Don't worry, you will get lots of help on this forum & 14 days is a long time to compile a defence/counterclaim. :)

Scan the document into your computer and open it in Paint or similar program. Edit out the personal information and identifying numbers etc.

 

Save it as a jpeg file

Open an a/c on Photobucket, (here: Image hosting, free photo sharing & video sharing at Photobucket ),or Tinypic here: (TinyPic - Free Image Hosting, Photo Sharing & Video Hosting )

 

Click the "upload image" box and browse to find the file of your scanned jpeg on your hard disk

 

It will then upload the image to Photobucket and it will show you thumbnails of the images you have uploaded. Under each image there are links that you can copy and paste.

 

Copy and paste the IMG Code link from Photobucket to the reply box on your thread here, which will look like this:

 

imagename.jpg{\IMG

When you submit the reply, the text will change into the image you uploaded onto Photobucket.

hi to every one who has given me help (michael your help on how to get this information on was just what i needed) along with the help of my son doing the tech bits. i have posted all the papaer work i have except for a copies of my invoices 12 of them explaining work carried out and cost for my labour . if any of this information is needed just ask . there was no loan agreement all this was verbal between us then he had a stinking row with my wife which turned into a shouting match (this argument was not concerning this it was regarding a family matter )then because he didn't like what he was hearing (to put it in laymans terms spit his dummy out) and started to make his threats and demands then slammed the phone down . thus then starting his claim . i did make him an offer to resolve this dispute after his first letter explaining the work i carried out exceeded the original loan . but he chose to ignore this it was a fair and amicable solution but he was obviously intent on dragging me to court . also as i stated in my reply to him he wanted his cake and eat it . .i never invoiced him untill he decided to take this action because i honestly believed i could trust him to do the decent thing (regretfully) thanks in advance for any help you can give me or advice on this matter

Have you actually sent the last 3 typed pages into the court woodpecker?

Or is this just what you propose sending?

Hi Foolishgirl,

 

The last 3 pages were proposed and have not been sent to the court. I was looking for advice on the layout of the defence and claim. I have to go out for a few hours, i will leave get the images on as soon as possible.

 

At this stage you just need to send in the AOS to say that you will be defending the claim & concise reasons why.

 

eg.

1. It is admitted that the claimant granted the defendant a loan of £xxx on xxxxx. This loan was not subject to any interest, no specific payment date was agreed & the claimant did not request repayment until xxxxx when he gave verbal notice that he required its repayment in full by 8 June 2009.

 

Then in your counterclaim:

 

1. The defendant claims £xxxx in payment for work carried out by the defendant at the claimant's instruction as detailed below:

(a) on xxxx work (specify type) at the claimant's home, address xxxx

(b) on xxxx work " " on the claimant's car (Reg. No. xxx)

Invoices were submitted to the claimant on xxxxx but to date remain unpaid.

The defendant therefore claims the sum of £xxxx as counter to this claim.

 

All the info. you posted in the last 3 pages (BTW where are they now?) should be incorporated in your defence & counterclaim submission that you will then forward to the court as a seperate document within the 28 days allowance. With all due respect, I think this is a little bit rambling & disjointed - it has to be clear & concise or a DJ may lose patience with it & not take your points as seriously as you may wish.

 

It helps if you can number the points, usually in date sequence of events, so it is easy to follow. Look at other defence submissions on CAG to see how others do it.
