    • 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 don't know how many caggers there are on the forum with regard to CCA agreement disputes

 

but i do know from reading a lot that there are certain "key" arears wher caggers long for decided case law

 

Most of this seems to stem from appealing poor court decisions

 

lets assume there are 10,000 caggers interested in this area

 

10,0000 x one quid = 10,000 pounds

 

10,0000 x 5 quid = 50,000 pounds

 

enough to form a fighting fund to appeal certain KEY points which in turn would benefit us all?

 

what are the thoughts on this or is it too radical!

A very nice thought and in the true CAG spirit.

 

There is always a but..

 

Who decides who should benefit? I'd rather put money into this site to keep it going than fund an individual case which may be subject to further appeal. How do you prioritise? People facing eviction for secured debts are in need of more advice and a 'fighting fund' than someone with a £500 debt for a store card debt who is arguing the merits of a CCA.

 

I don't disagree with your idea and if we had an ideal world I'd be the first to sign up. But perhaps there could be a co-operative formed off the back of your idea to help those that really need our support.

I agree - would even be happy to pay £5 per month subscription if it means the guys on here could spend more time giving support..... (so your £5 x 10,000 but monthly - not annually!)

 

The usual suspects that always help everyone could then agree within a consultive group which cases to take on - personally i'd rather the clued up guys used our sub's to take on the CRA's directly - like a much bigger version of UK26 vs Experian - as most have legal knowledge i'm sure with a years sub's paid by all the regulars that we'd get them in court!

 

A class action case against the CRA's for being one sided in that they try and worm out of their responsibilities by posting libellous data about people and always believing the OC. Even going as far to challenge the 6yr rule - there is no law that says data should remain for 6yrs, what with the europeans trying to get us to follow suit with a 3yr statute barred policy surely 3yrs is plenty time to have adverse data registered.... after all, no laws tell us that it has to remain for 6yrs - thats something they have decided - maybe we could change that?

 

I'm up for it - anyone want to start the ball rolling then £60 will be on it's way to CAG in light years!

thanks for that and i would match that!

 

the appeals that would be chosen would be the ones where we want to set precedents

 

and if won would be self financing since the costs would be recovered

 

over to the site team

 

IMO much better idea (worthy though it was) to get results than sending protest letters

I'm afraid it could cause problems, it would have to be a registered charity and licensed with various statutary authorities. Then there would be the book-keeping to consider + heaven knows what else.
