    • 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 anyone advise me what i should do, I do not mean to ramble but this will take a bit of explaining. Please do take the time to read as my life has slowly disolved into nothing over the last four years and I would dearly like to try and rebuild.

 

Approxamately 7 years ago I took out a Chelsea motgage on our family home, no problems all ok, after about 3 years I started out on my own as a IT consultant, work fine

loads of it and everything looking great. about a year later things started to slow but I had a large contract looming with a company I had worked with and supported for 2 years.

 

I decided I would look for an advance on my mortgage, being self inployed for less than 3 years i coud not get a advance, until i contacted I Group, they pretty much threw the money at me I did not even have to prove i earned anything, I just put down the amount I wanted and signed the form. If I remember correctly it was called a "non Status Mortgage".

 

All was well for a while until my father started to deteriate from Cancer and my mother decided to "try to commit suicide" my daily routine became Nurse, Working hospital visiting in the eveining, it was exausting. It only lasted a short while as my father worsend and died, this brought on more chores, eventually I closed my business

rather than it wrap up with massive debts, unfortunately this left me unemployed and quickly in arreas with CC and Mortgages.

 

My main mortgage left it one calander month "one missed payment"before shattering my world with a cc date, obviously we fought it and were allowed to stay if we could make further payments, I had managed to find employment after six months out of work, we tried desperately to make payments and additional payments to the CBS to lower the arrears, but it was not working out not with I group or GE Money hounding us as well.

 

We had gone to court against GE money with Irrisponsible lending as a defence our court case was posponed as Wragg and co (I Group GE Money) could not provide the relavant documentation during the court hearing... this was never re heard as the CBS were given a eviction order in their favor before the case with I Group was re Heard.

 

We left the property and moved from Inlaws to eventually rented accomodation, with continued harasment from my creditors and a high pressure job i attempted to comit suicide, fortunately unsucessfully.but causing me to have a breakdown.

that was two years ago, I have not worked since, I do not know how we have managed to get by we have been continued to be harased by our creditors even though we have nothing.

 

Would someone on the forums be able to answer this, recently I Group, AKA GE Money have contacted us saying we owe £3150 we asume for their legal fees they forgot to add onto their claim to our property as the second chage, we received nothing from the sale of our pproperty not even notification of the sale or the final settlement details. where do we stand, do we still have the right to take them back to court for irrisponsible lending ?

 

please help

sounds about right for GE, formerly I Group and Ocwen, secret commissions could be worth a look at also:)

so who exactly do you allegedly owe it to?? GE, Ocwen or IGroup cos it cant be all of them, they seem to change their name when it suits them, cat and mouse tactics, how can you challenge or defend when they do this and surely it is unlawful, GE Servicing who are they, I thought the other two no longer existed at all? google Ocwen, all USA isnt it? Ge all over the world of course.

just did a quick google, so they do exist and this link also gives which company is FSA regulated and which is not.

Hi again it been a while, in reply, well it was I group, thats changed to GE money,my question again. we were evicted, by our first mortgage company CBS, but Igroup as the second charge was persueing us also. we had a case against I group for Irrisponsible lending, the judge had made a statement to this effect. when we lost the property we were under the impression this was the end of it but Igroup have had their cake the second charge and now are chasing for their legal fees 3 years later....

 

my question "can we re-open the irrisponsible lending case against them as we have not been notified of any results or actions..?"

 

Kind regards Duncan


Regards Duncan
