    • 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

Hello - I wonder if anyone could advise what my next step should be. Unfortunately my business is in dire straights and I am unable to keep up the payments on an unsecured loan and MBNA credit card. I have sent the relevant letters and offered an amount of money left after paying priority bills. I have been sending Mint a weekly amount and MBNA. I have sent both of them the required expenditure form. Mint have today sent me the N1 claim form. Do I fill this in and offer the same as I did originally? I cannot understand why they did just not accept my original offer. Are they hoping to get a charge on my property? The MBNA letter also refuses my offer and says they will take legal action and get a charge on my property? Any help would be much appreciated. I a bit worried about the claim form as I have never had one before. Thanks again.

You should fill in the N1 & defend, the case will be transferred to your local court. In the meantime send off a CCA request http://www.consumerforums.com/resources/templates-library/86-debt-collectors/581-cca-request-letter and a SAR http://www.consumerforums.com/resources/templates-library/86-debt-collectors/576-subject-access-request-debt-a-dca

 

The CCA request will show whether they have an enforceable agreement in place, if they don't you can use that as a defence. The SAR will provide information in respect of any unfair charges which may have been added which you can reclaim & use to apply to have their CCJ application set-aside.

Hopefully someone else will come along soon, but for the time being the above will get the ball rolling and help you to some form of defence. By the sound of things they are hoping for a fast track CCJ in the hope that you don't defend & they win by default.

Have Mint previously sent you a Default Notice & Termination Notice?

If so can you scan them, remove personal details & post them up?

 

I'm going to ask a member of the site team to move this thread to the legal forum where it should get some specialized attention. ;)

Hi Thank you for your help. The Mint loan was only from last year and I applied on line so I dont think I would get far with the cca. I am more than willing to pay them £50 a month which I have offered and have been paying for the last month. When you say they are after a fast track ccj what do you mean? Will the judge not realise I am trying to pay and accept the £50? Thanks again.

I am assuming that they are hoping that you won't defend & win by default. If it does go to court a judge would look at your circumstances and after viewing an income & expenditure form which you would have supplied, he will then decide what you can reasonably afford to pay. The fact that you are making payments will be in your favour. Even if they manage to acquire a CCJ as long as you keep to the payments ordered by the court they cannot take any further action, but the main thing at the moment is to try and prevent them from obtaining a CCJ in the first place. ;)

 

Just to repeat my question above have Mint previously sent you a Default Notice & Termination Notice?

If so can you scan them, remove personal details & post them up?

Hi Cerberusalert Have uploaded the default and notice to terminate the agreement. Should I fill in the N1 and offer them the monthly amount I can afford? I notice it goes to Mint (the offer) what if they turn it down again will the judge decide?

Hi Notty

 

Any chance you kept the envelope that the DN was delivered in? As it stands, dates/time wise, the DN has given you the requisite time to rectify providing it was posted First Class Royal Mail.

 

However, if it came by Second Class Royal Mail or some other mail service was used then the extra days for service would take the required 14 clear days to rectify past the date given.

 

Cheers

Rob

Hi Robcag

No threw it away. Too tidy. How long do you normally have to reply to the N1 is it 14 days?

Hi Robcag

No threw it away. Too tidy. You could always put them to strict proof that it was sent 1st class, failing which it would be assumed to have been sent 2nd class, thus giving 4 days for service and therefore not giving the required 14 days to rectify. How long do you normally have to reply to the N1 is it 14 days? If the claim has been issued through the Northampton bulk centre then you have 5+14 days from the date of issue to acknowledge service. Provided you ack before that deadline you then have a further 14 days to submit your defence. Giving you a total of 33 days from date of issue.

 

Cheers

Rob

It looks like I will have to send the form back and admit to it and ask for time to pay. Is that the correct procedure? I know I will end up with a ccj but I cannot understand why they didnt just accept the offer I made to them. The court will not be able to award any more than what I have offered so it all seems pointless. The court has added on costs which could have gone to them to pay off the loan??

Wait for advice from more experienced caggers before you admit to anything, Notty.

 

Sorry I don't have the legal expertise to advise, but I'm sure someone will be along soon - if not, you can click on the red triangle in the bottom left hand corner to alert the site team.

 

Best of luck to you:)

Excellent advice from UD13, just make sure you acknowledge the claim before the deadline, which will then give you a further 14 days to submit your defence, even if only a 'holding defence' if you are not in receipt of required documents requested. If the claim is from Northampton you can do all of this online, just make sure you opt to defend all of the claim, you can always retract that later if necessary.

 

Cheers

Thanks underdog13. I am getting a bit worried as I have just read on debtline that a judge can order the full amount is paid and if you cant pay it (which I cant) then they could apply for a charging order and maybe make you sell your house. It is all very confusing and I am at a loss at what to do next.

Well as you can't be sure that the DN was sent 1st class, and there's a good chance it wasn't, rather than give them the benefit of the doubt, challenge them to prove how it was sent. In the absence of proof that it was sent 1st class, it will be deemed to have been sent 2nd class, thereby not giving you the statutory 14 clear days to rectify and a good defence against the claim.

 

I would start with a CPR (31.??) request for further information (proof that a DN in accordance with ss 87,88 was sent, i.e a copy of the DN and proof of postage), together with any other relevant documentation you (or anyone else) can think of. You need to do this ASAP.

 

Sorry I can't help you with that as I'm rather busy on my own account but I'm sure someone else will be able to assist.

 

Cheers

Rob

You're welcome, Notty:)

 

I can understand why you are worried, but I would be surprised if a judge was that unreasonable - worse case scenario, you present an income and expenditure form and the court decides what instalments you can afford to pay.

After watching the channel 4 programme last night it hasn't done anything to calm my fears. I am very worried that they can put a charge on my house. If I send the CPR will they have to prove postage? Also if I admit and offer to pay them monthly, if the court agrees, will I have to attend the court? Someone on CAG said you always had to go to court? Can someone please advice me what is the best course of action. I am so worried I am not sleeping much and it makes it all seem worse.
