    • 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

When ppl have a look, take note of the date at the top of the page with sigs on, 9/2/08, 2 weeks before we signed the agreement. Its the copy that was faxed to Welcome. I'm not 100% sure we actually signed an original copy, have never received a copy of an original, just the copy that i've posted above.

This morning, while in town, I received a call from Welcome. Actually, I missed the call, but they left a voicemail, asking me to contact a John (surname was mumbled) at the local office. By coincidence, I was literally stood outside the local office, so thought I'd call in and speak to this John. Asked at reception for him, to be told no one of that name works there, at least with the name John. So I mentioned about the message, but apparently I must be mistaken. Shame really, I was looking forward to asking him some awkward questions, but hey ho.

I would have thought that any office employing more than 2 people would have at least 1 John!

 

Perhaps he did work there this morning but has found a more ethical and satisfying job at the local abattoir....

Could be one of the muppets from head office saying that he is calling from the local branch....

Right, SAR now sent off, taken a bit of time cos funds are bit tight at min. Now, recently started getting calls from Welcome, asking me to call me to discuss account as its now with their legal team. Also, I notified them in writing that I'd changed address, but I suspect they're writing to me at an old address, so if they've taken any action, I wouldn't know about it. What happens if that is the case?

I'm waiting for my Sar to come back, re car finance, but hoping its going to have info relating to a secured loan I took out with welcome in 04. Now, i'm assuming I can claim my PPI back, but the loan is now paid off, was paid off in 04 when i remortgaged. Loan was for 2.5k, cant remember what was paid back to clear it tho. If I can claim the Ppi back, as I did try to use it but my claim was refused, missold i'm told, would this have any effect on the settlement figure I paid? I mean, could I claim back any extra I paid because the Ppi was included? Hope that makes sense.

For instance, just for an example, if loan was 2.5k with ppi and settlement was 10%, so 250, so to settle would be 2750. But without ppi it was 2k, the 10% settlement would then be 200, so to settle would cost 2200, obviously less. Could I then reclaim the difference if the Ppi was refunded?

Right, sent SAR off on friday, 1st class recorded, got proof of posting etc. Been to check on Track and Trace and nothing to say its been signed for, just that it was accepted at PO on friday. Does the compliance place still exist? I'd hoped it would have been delivered by now.
