    • 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,

 

I recently sent a i pound postal order CCA request to a DCA with the standard letter saying not to use it for any other purpose than the CCA.

 

Anyways I haven't heard anything from the original OC (Lombard D) other than sending me a 'statement' with the 1 pound credited off the balance!

 

I have also recieved a letter saying that the DCA has requested a copy of the

CCA from the Lom D and will be in touch, but that's it.

 

Any ideas of what I should do about this and I did clearly state not to use the

postal order for anything else?

If they are still going to comply with the CCA request then I wouldn't worry too much.

I would be very annoyed if they used it to pay off some of the debt and weren't going to supply you with the CCA.

as long as its in your original cca request sent by recorded delievery, you will be fine

 

a trick by these scumbags is to sell the debt to another dca when they cant collect from you,

they then use that pound credited to the account as acknowledgement of the debt to restart the statute of limitations

 

keep your original request and track and trace number in a very safe place

 

you may need it 4 years down the line

Hi, thanks for the advice.

 

I have kept the Recorded Delivery reciepts etc but can you tell me 'Post" why you say I may need it 4 years down the line? Is there something specific about 4 years from a CCA request?

Also, does any1 know that if you have been paying token payments to an account and they can't supply a CCa, does that mean they can still enforce it you have been making payments prior?

 

If that makes sense...:?

Just a general remark, could be anytime up to and over Statute Barred date which is 6 years from the time you make any payment or written acknowlegement of the alleged account.

As long as the token payments are what you can afford and you're being honest about it a court would make them look pretty stupid for bringing action when you have tried to pay.

So should I stop paying them if they don't produce a valid CCA? The payments are pretty small (I literally can't afford any more at the moment.)

but if it does go to court (without a CCA) would the payments be seen as an admission of debt?

NO!

 

No CCA is a full defence. If it's been 14 days since you sent your request, stop paying.

You could use the option of saying that you've been paying under duress as they've scared you so much into beleiving you have debts.

Part of me kind of wants it to go to court I think (although another part doesn't) just to stop the constant hassle/stress. I don't own anything really, some clothes but thats about it. A pen also.

Sometimes, but not all the time and it isn't bullet proof.

 

I believe that sometimes the £ is taken so that they can show the OC that they have collected something and this prevents the OC from pulling back the debt and then giving to someone else. I've never heard of one trying to use it to reset the LA though. Just because I ain't seen it, don't mean it don't happen though. Never seen a kangaroo, don't mean they don't exist.

Although the pound was seen to be credited to account on statements I received from the original OC does that mean it is still with them and hasn't been sold to a DCA?

Just bumping this. Does anyone know the answer? : If I've just received a statement detailing token payments made to a DCA from the original OC does that mean the loan hasn't actually been sold on but is still with the original OC?

 

Thanks

Who did you ask for the information?

 

If you asked the DCA, and they don't have the information, they will then go back to the OC to retrieve it.

 

If you asked the OC for the information, then if they have sold the debt on, they will tell you to contact the DCA in question who is asking you for payment, as it is nothing to do with them.

 

However, some OC's like to give the impression that they are mightier than they actually are, for example, 'Halifax', if you default with them especially with a credit card, they will send you threatogrammes from their 'appointed DCA' called Blair Oliver & Scott, who are in reality Halifax BOS.

 

So it may be the case that your DCA, whoever they are? Are in fact Lombard, which is why you have received the statement from Lombard:confused:

Hi thanks, yes I think you may be right, I think they may be one and the same. Do original lendings tend to keep bad loans and receive a token payment for years as this is what seems to be happening here? I'm suprised they haven't given up and sold it on.

Whats the name of the DCA? Have you tried searching their name out?

 

OC's normally keep the account until they can sell it on, as, when they sell it they can recoup some of the loss to the DCA they sell it too and then claim the rest of their insurance!:eek:
