    • 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

Sorry but what's a POC?

 

Also what happens IF Virgin Media do not submit their defence bundle to the court, they have until the 21st July, but I am just curious to know as i really don't think they have a defence.

To cut a long story short I am taking VM to court for loss of earnings for an installation dated that was booked for 9th January 09, they deny any knowledge of this (we have letter confirming this) orginally when we booked for 2 V+ boxes in November 08 to lure us away from Sky they told us that they would be FOC, anyway VM have charged us for one V+ box. We had another eningeer booked for19th Jan 09. The engineer walked in the door and said that we had booked 2 broadband installations and 1 V+ installation. We told the engineer that we had booked 2 V+ installations and not 2 broadband as we have already got broadband, so we had to book again another installation for the 6th Feb 09 to do the second installation, which we thought was going to happen on the 9 Jan 09, my partner who is self employed had to take 3 days off work because of their cockups.

 

On VM defence they have lied twice on their defence regarding the second boxed being waived (it's on my invoices that they are charging us for) and also crediting me a goodwill guesture (that is not on any invoice of mine this year) and also I wrote to VM back in January 09 refusing compensation sent recorded delivery). There is more to this but I don't have time at the moment, so I will try to scan details later today. I have already spoken to a solicitor about my claim and she was very hopefull as VM do absolutely nothing when you have a complaint. I have written to them so many times this year all recorded delivery and I have only been acknowledge 2 times, they even make a big mistake on one of their letter to me back in April this year. My contract with them is supposed to be finished in Jan 10, however they make a big mistake in their letter saying my contract runs out in Jan 09. All their paperwork to me has so many cockups and mistakes (it's great) because I have a very strong case against them and I am not afraid of court infact I am looking forward to it.

 

As said there is more to this case and I will update later.

Also I have a gut feeling that they are either going to settle or not turn up in court as to be perfectly honest they have made far too many mistakes and my papertrail is impecible

Like a lot of companies they try to 'face it out' until the last minute hoping you'll fold. They'd make rotten Poker players, 'Snap' is more their level. ;)
