    • Hi,  I'm new here, and hoping that this is the right place to post this.   I applied for pip and was awarded standard mobility (10 points).  I did an M.R. but got the same result. They acknowledge that I can't leave my house without having someone with me. They accept that I'm not completely housebound as I go out to appointments, which are not a regular occurrence, they also said that they can't award me enhanced because I'm not out most days.  Is this correct?  Surely it shouldn't matter how often I go out? 
    • The Legal Ombudsman has a wider remit than the SRA, and can always refer matters on to the SRA where they find a breach of the SRA's code.   I'd suggest writing to the solicitors, highlighting these issues, asking them to refund the money. If they don't then complain to the LO.
    • Good morning all,   I have an update for you all, shortly after my first hearing i was told i would need to have a rehearing with another company, Obviously i agreed but after the initial grievance hearing the person then asked me to enter into a private conversation, I have received the settlement offer and are disgusted as its not even half of my monthly  salary, I'm not sure what to do at this stage as i dont have the funds to finance a solicitor,so any advice would be appreciated.  
    • Sorry, but what does this mean?   Who are ARC? It would be helpful if you could be a little bit more clear about what happened. I don't understand why you are not simply proceeding against Amazon – because it is clearly their responsibility as it was their driver or courier company
    • I understand that you were involved in a contentious divorce in respect of which there was a bill for court costs – £850. You decided to challenge the costs in court and you lost and an order was made against you. We decided to appeal the order but before the appeal was heard, the solicitors made you a without prejudice offer of a 50-50 split – £425. You agree to this and you signed the document to that effect which you returned to the solicitors. Despite that the solicitors are now trying to impose the original £850 order. Is that the correct order of events? "Without prejudice" is certainly something that doesn't seem to be very well understood, including by solicitors. "Without prejudice" can protect an offer from being disclosed to the court where the offer has been refused so that it is not binding on anyone. However, without prejudice cannot be used to hide everything from the court – including wrongdoings, unethical behaviour et cetera. It seems to me that once you sign the agreement you effectively had a contract. I'd like to know a little bit more about the agreement that you signed but presumably it was intended to bring a halt to any further proceedings. I don't think there is any difficulty about disclosing a contract to the court in the circumstances. It is only the offer which was made without prejudice. Once the agreement was accepted and signed then the document acquired a wholly different character. It was no longer an offer open to be accepted or refused. It was a legally binding contract which imposed obligations upon both sides. In my view the solicitors have acted in a highly unethical way and I would begin by making a complaint to the SRA. I wonder whether the solicitors proposed the 50-50 split to you without consulting with their client and when they then contacted their client and told her what had been agreed, she refused to accept it and on that basis the solicitors recognised that they had made an error but rather than accept their responsibility and footing the £425 out of their own pockets, they preferred to get it from you. Of course this is just speculation but it seems to me to be quite a possible scenario. I'd like to see the agreement post up here please – that my sense is that you should complain to the SRA and you should tell the solicitors that this is what you're doing.

    • 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've tried to ask for advice on the residential forum but no feedback so seeing if anyone knows where we stand legally with an interesting problem we've had. I'll give you the background...

 

my bf and I rented a flat for 6 months a little while over a year ago. At the time we rented through an agent - they told us there is parking on the site; however, we would have to pay for these. As myself and my bf at the time both had cars we needed to purchase them. They cost £35.00 for the 2 permits & according to the agent they were purchased from the managing agents of the property we were renting.

 

In March 2009, we were informed by the managing agents that due to a number of complaints with regards to parking on the site they were to re-issue new parking permits to the owner(s) of each property (1 resident permit and 1 visitor permit). Our landlord then only gave us the resident permit. Luckily, by this point I no longer had a car just my bf's.

 

As before the permits operated the same, although the only difference being that they had a slight different format. This meant that the permits we purchased when we moved in (only 10 months old) were no longer valid. When we moved out May that year we then had to hand the permit back to the landlord.

 

My query is that we were sold a service for something that we only used for 10 months and were expecting to use indefinately as long as we lived in the property as it has no valid end date. So it made no difference if we lived there 12 months or 12 years. This doesn't seem fair to me.

 

Does anyone know if we have a case here to get our money back or at least part?... i've spoken to the managing agents but they are no help and not willing to refund any monies.

I don't understand your post. You say you rented for 6 months but used the permit for 10 months ?????

Initially signed up for a 6 month tenancy - then extended this for a further 6 months. Sorry forgot to mention that.

 

I just want to know is there a case to claim the money back when it seems the managing agents of the property are the ones who should have supplied the permits in the first place to the owner/landlord who then should have passed them on to us (which happened as I said 10 months into the tenancy). I think its a money making game on behalf of the managing agents.

Ok, but that is on an annual basis.. my point earlier was as follows

My advice is based on my opinion and my experience. It is not to be taken as legal advice as I am not legally qualified
