    • 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

My mate has CCA'ed Lloyds and this is what he got, obviously there is no interest rate but could somebody who knows their stuff please point out any irregularities within it? Thanks in advance...

Am i right in thinking that it contains NONE of the prescribed terms ie. the interest rate, APR, credit limit and amount of repayments?

This looks like not much more than an applicfation form to me..... :confused:

Anything on the reverse ? It certainly looks like an application form as it states at the top, but it also says agreement. But without the prescribed terms it would be unenforceable. Just my opinion.

That's what i thought, just some T&C's on the back, parts of it are illegible and incomplete. I'm pretty sure that all parts need to be readable.

Regulations state that copies need to be easily legible, if its not then they havent complied with your request.

 

That said Lloyds in this instance would probably operate by procedure, rather than by law and regulations.


Advice offered by ENRON is without prejudice and is for your judgement as to whether to take it. You should seek the assistance or hire of a solicitor or other paid professional if in doubt.

I've had the same from Lloyds, they attached T&C's on separate sheets with 17.4 referred to but missing. Several sections on the application had been tampered with and overwritten (not by me) they also changed dates so I'm going to throw it back at them.

 

They have continued to charge me interest and late payment fees and they took over £270 from my current account last month - all this despite the account being in dispute. I have now opened a bank account elsewhere and transferred over. I have also asked the FOC to get involved, although it could be sometime before I hear back.

 

Is there a letter template so to reply stating that they have failed to supply a 'true' signed legible copy and therefore they have not complied with request ?

So what they sent needs to be legible? This is what they sent me, the DCA continues to hassle me even though I sent an account in dispute letter, they claim that Lloyds had told them that because payments had been made on the account in the past that this was sufficient proof that the debt existed.

Thanks scrambledbyegg

 

Is there a letter template anywhere, I've searched the threads but have not come up with anything.

 

Do you think they're right when they say that because you have paid in the past the debt exists ?

 

What's your next move ?

No one is denying the debt exists, and it always will. What you are questioning is whether they have a properly executed credit agreement. Which then gives them the legal right to collect on this debt. If they can't produce one they can't enforce it, but the debt is still there.

I hope that's cleared it up a bit.

I do not believe this is a properly executed agreement it is merely an application with some terms included so I have gone back to them disputing their claims.

 

I understand about the debt still existing but what powers do they have to collect on this should it be unenforceable ?

 

What, if anything, can they do to recover the money in such a situation ?

 

I am trying to preempt their next move.

 

Any help would be gratefully appreciated.

Sorry to hijack your thread, I have the same as above but without anything on the other side ie terms and conditions etc. Lloyds say this is the only copy of my agreement, it even has someone elses credit card number at the top, what would you advise please?

You're right, nothing on the back. They altered mine in several sections, including the date, there were missing clauses and it was also illegible. On page 2 it had been countersigned a year later.

 

I have sent a non-compliance letter to Lloyds and forwarded copies of all paperwork to the FOC.

 

I'm now waiting for a response from both.

Thanks for that! Please can I ask where you got the non-compliance letter from ?
