    • 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 have rather stupidly let one slip through the net, I have requested (with the help of this great site) CCA'S from all of my other creditors and so far nothing of any sense has come back and all has been quiet, for now at least. The only one I was not too worried about was an HSBC credit card which I had been paying £50 a month to DG solicitors until around Oct 08. I struggled to pay it,but because I had a bank account with HSBC and they were in a position to threaten me with removing my o/d and debit card, which they eventually did anyway, I continued to do my best to pay it. In Feb 09 I had a letter from CL saying I should continue paying the £50 to them as the account has been assigned to them in Dec 08, the notice of assignment was in a box at the bottom of the letter and enclosed was the notice of assignment from HSBC. This is where my stupidity comes into it as I never bothered to CCA them nor contact them, assuming I would receive something else long before any court claim, and to be perfectly honest I have so many personal issues going on, I was focussing on those things, while the creditors were quiet.To my horror today I received a claim form. I need step by step help with completing the claim form and any help whatsoever with where I should go with this. The debt is for nearly £8,000 including loads of charges (started at about £5,500 I think) and according to them was taken out in 2001.I have been signed off work long term, due to depression and various other person issues and have recently been awarded the lowest rate of DLA, other than that my only other income is my child benefit, I am married and my husband works but, is in the constuction industry and is in enough mess with his own finances. He already has several charging orders on our home placed by his creditors one being First Direct (HSBC)which was what prompted me to seek information and found myself here.I do know a bit about how the legal route works and can adapt letters, thanks to CAG, but need to know if its too late to ask for a CCA and which letters to adapt and send to whom, also what bits do I fill in on the claim form. Sorry this is so long, I would be really grateful of some advice.

Thanks again

You will need sight of a copy of the original credit agreement in order to mount a defense. You can CCA them but I think under CPR they will have to disclose to you everything they intend to use in the hearing anyway so you could get the info that way. Without a copy of the original agreement what case do they have?

 

The other issue you have of course is charges. I don't know whether you counterclaim for this or use some other proceedure.

 

edit: can you post a copy of the claim minus your details?

Thanks Kurvaface for your prompt response, its probably easier and quicker to write it as I'm not sure how to scan, The claimant claim is for the sum of ****.** being monies due from the defendant to the claimant under a regulated credit agreement between the defendant and HSBC plc under ref num....... and assigned to the claimant on the .....08 notice of which has been given to the defendant.

The defendant failed to make payment in accordance with the terms of the agreement and a default notice has been served upon the defendant pursuant to section 87(1) of the consumer credit act 1972.

The claimant claims the sum of £****.** lots of love Howard Cohen from Northampton

1 Shall I do the aos online.

2 Shall I ask for more time

3 shall I request SAR or just CCA

 

A bit at a time is good, I like that

I have been reading a slightly similar thread to this: http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/debt-collection-industry/207473-boxclever-toffee.html

 

Your case swings on the validity of the CCA and assignment so those are the two things you need to scrutinise. CPR 31.14 is a mechanism by which they will have to provide all documentation that they will use to support their case in court and it wont cost you more than the recorded delivery.;)

Just one more thing, do I send the CPR 31.14 to Cohen or CL Finance ? I have defended the claim and contested Juristriction on line, would that be around 28 days I have now to get my defence together ? I will have a look a the link to Boxclever now, and hopefully be able to leave you in peace. Thanks again

Hi maddiemay

 

Personally I would SAR HSBC too, for the sake of £10 it could give you info to use later on in the case. Need to ask for everything especially manual intervention records. The info no doubt will NOT come in time for the defence but if the solicitors ignore the CPR and you plead an embarrassed defence then it should come prior to judges directions and the amended defence.

CPR to claimant.....Cohen and SAR to HSBC. This way you get the best of both worlds although I doubt you will get the SAR back in time.

HI maddiemay,

 

Actually, it will help your case that you did not send any letters to CL FInance as this means you have not acknowledged notice that the debt has been assigned to them and so they don't have a leg to stand on.

 

When you do the defence be sure to put in the bit about notice of assignment and seeing the actual document of assignment

Oh, I like your style,have never comunicated with them at all, I could always plead Im not right in the head too (signed unfit for work by DWP for foreseeable future) and the nice judge might write it off, they have absolutely no chance of ever getting anything off me as I simply dont have any income (£20 DLA) until I return to work, which looks like it could be a long way off yet.Do I mention what you suggested along with the CPR 31 or in my defence for court, sorry to be so dim and Thanks

Should I remind CL Finance they have run out of time with regards to the CPR request/asked for more time.

My husband also has problems with summons court case on 21/9/09. was only able to get CCA agreement through GE money originall lender but no assignment of debt. Agreement looks odd and need help. GE money (now santander) say CL Finance has to supply. I thought lender had to issue in writing? CL finance have sent copy letter which says debt assigned to them, letter dated 18 June 2007.

 

Actual agreement headed "application" does not say much two parts are application and short part details interest 2.27% per month APR 30.9 variable and minimum payment terms. Signature box says this is "a credit agreement". Staements supplied missing prior to 17/4/03 balance 625.40, April 0318/5/07 owed 546.21, total interest 613.62, total purchases 454, charges £75 and payments made 1363.7, balance 421.21 at June 2009.

 

I am not sure posting in right place but can anyone help?

 

Thanks

mixster,

 

It will be easier if you start your own thread to get some help. Have a look at the link I posted above to start with. Although that case was slightly complicated because the OP didn't actually know the name of the claimant in the case.

 

If you only communicated with CL Finance after they sent the blue court form to you then you have a strong defence about the assignment. I would also suggest that you have a strong defence that no notice was given of the assignment from GE to Santander

Send it back to northampton - or you can do it online

Do it as soon as you like

Should I remind CL Finance they have run out of time with regards to the CPR request/asked for more time.

 

A solicitor would send a chasing letter saying that otherwise they would apply to the court for an order requiring them to disclose and that would mean extra costs for the creditor so they tend to take it more seriously. Whether they would take any notice of you as a LIP is another matter.

When do I ask for it to be heard at my local court

 

It will automatically be transferred to your local court when you submit your defence

 

I think thats it for now

Thanks
