    • @Jaybee in CF Claimant commitments are agreed between yourself and the Job Centre Work Coach.  So you will be able to discuss the local jobs market, transport available and all of the local issues.   As it is a two way constructive relationship, you can research all of the relevant information, so when you have your claimant commitment agreed,  the information you have obtained can be considered.              
    • 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

Having been to my mothers house and going in the loft I found a bag containing a lot of old stuff from when I lived there. I knew this bag was there but just could not be bothered to sort it.

 

With a lot of pass debts popping up day by day I decided to go and sort this rubbish out.

 

Since maybe March time the odd letter has popped up out the blue. One of these was from Lowell asking to pay an old o2 debt from 2006.

So I rang them said I couldn't remember the debt and they told me the last payment was 3/8/05.

 

Well. I found a letter in my bag dated from 08/05 from Wescot DCA asking to pay this o2 account. This obviously shows I hadn't made the payment they said I had. Completely lying to me over the phone.

 

The same has happened with MAck Hall again with a o2 account from around the same time. They say the last payment was 1/11/06. I have a letter from wescot again for 9/04/04! for the same amount. I know for a fact I only had one o2 account and couldn't understand where this had come from. I now remember it was a contract I took out in my name but for someone else.

 

No payments have been made to either Wescot, Lowell or Mack Hall so I just want to show how the DCA's lie constantly to gain a payment out of you.

 

Do you think it's wise to subject access request o2 and find out when these accounts actually defaulted?

 

I think these could be very nearly stat barred but need dates and obviously the DCA's will say anything to make you pay a payment then start the clock running again!:???:

well worth it,bare in mind any conned payment is profit.

no.as cerberus says,save your money and get the losers to prove it.

I really don't believe that any of these very reputable and responsible DCA's would lower themselves to such a level as to lie in order to get a payment out of people who don't owe debts! Are you sure you have this right?

 

I also read in the paper today that there is going to be a blue moon tonight, which incidentally is made of cheese!:lol::lol:

 

Well I must say well done on getting further proof, if ever it were needed? that these DCA's really have no morales, conscience or training!

I am trying to get a DCA to lift my signature and use that on a legal document, and when they do, "Light blue touch paper and stand very well back!":D

 

Even I am getting bored of telling people to complain about these really dire companies attempting to threaten and bully their way through life making peoples lives a misery:-x

 

But in light of recent events with the somewhat farcical and spineless OFT not doing what it was set up for, your only other option is to make a formal complaint to the other organisations set up to effectively 'monitor' these DCA's.....there my gripe over, I must need feeding, I'm not normally this miserable:razz:

 

 

Boo;)

TS report complaints to OFT

OFT store till licence time.

 

If 20 or more complaints are received within a month against 1 company,they are then contacted to make them aware:pas if they didnot know.

 

this is then recorded as well for licence time.

 

as I have said before call consumer direct 08454 04 05 06

they log it for TS in the dca area and also pass it to your local TS

both TS then report to OFT. 2 in 1:Dthe more the merrier.

Thanks for the help I will just wait and let them prove that the debt excist.

 

I've been told before ny mack hall that you dont need a cca for the a mobile contract?

 

If this is correct how would they prove the debt is mine?

 

Should I ask them to prove this in writing and is there any letter templates for this sort of thing?

 

Bazooka boo, I too have heard of signature lifting and cant wait to see this happen with proof that the dca has done it.

Yes that is correct, the only way you would find out if a debt exists is to send them a SAR

Don't forget the SB clock starts from when the last payment became due not when the default was registered.
