    • 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

hey guys,

 

i thought i had these guys figured out, a whole new ball game now people.

 

so the situation is that i have already been doing the whole back and forth thing with these losers for a while, NOW they send me another letter for ANOTHER bill they claim to have taken over, it's this time for a Loan.

 

it's a weird situation, i suppose giving you the letter verbatum would help in your support, so here goes... ahem:

 

We have recently had mail that was sent to you returned and as such we have taken steps to confirm your residence.

 

We have chosen to use the services of a credit reference agency and through various checks it appears likely that you are still resident at this address. As such we believe that you may be trying to avoid contact with us as your creditor.

 

We now intend to take further action against you in order to recover the outstanding balance, this action could include either, an agent visiting your address to discuss your account at a date to be advised. We also may consider commencing legal action against you.

 

This outstanding balance is not going to go away and trying to avoid your responsibilities will only make the situation worse.

 

You can resolve this matter by entering into a repayment plan or settling your account by paying a sum of money as full and final settlement.

 

Unless we hear from you within 5 working days from the date of this letter (27/07/2009) we will instruct our agents Red Debt Collection Services to take the appropriate action.

 

Please call telephone number xxxxxxx where one of our agents will be ready to help.

 

_______________________________________________________

 

So, where do i start guys? i'm pretty sure this is stat barred by now, however, the letter just states the original creditor as being barclays bank plc and the amount oweing, NOTHING else :(.

 

i would also like to mention that all letters that have been sent to my house have been opened and NOT RTS, so this letter is complete bull!

 

from reading everything on here, it seems they are trying to "scare" me with the big guns (RED) ohhhh... haha.

 

what do you all suggest i should do with this, if anything at all... if i leave this would it be beneficial? or would you suggest another course of action? any experience and advice would be much appreciated!

 

Thanks as always caggers!

I guess the first step is the CCA request, or perhaps a Subject Access Request, as this would give you the default date and date of last payment, or, you could check your CF and see from there when it is going to SB'd.


Every journey begins with a single step :):)

 

Please note: I have no qualifications in this area - my advice is learned from the wonderful members of this Forum. Thanks to you all for your help.

Move all banking activity to another banking group if you have a dispute - your funds can be used to offset debts within the same group.

Be careful with Banking details (card/account numbers) as these can be used to take unauthorised payments.

Fishing letter in my opinion, just ignore it.

The Leeds Losers are that dim that even though you have corresponded with them in the pass, they cannot put two and two together.

 

Acknowledging the letter only alerts them that you do live there, so they can send more rain forrest destruction through the letterbox.

 

File under ignore and wait to see if you receive any further garbage from them.

thanks for the advice, it's a pain in the preverbial... i'm pretty sure this is very close if not SB already. i'll see what anyone else has to offer in advice before i commit to a next course of action (no offence)

 

thanks

If this is a debt you know IS or about to become stat barred the longer you ignore them the better.

 

As for 'BIG RED' do they chase anything that isn't unenforceable?

i'm not too sure to be perfectly honest with you, however i think it was a debt from originally around 2002/3 and not sure when last acknowledement was :( no later than 2004 though... i think ignoring as they are blatantly "fishing" is the best plan, unless anyone else has another view?

Lowells (aka "Red" aka "Hampton legal") wont actually do anything other than send a few threatograms & then disappear when you stand up to them.

Report them to the OFT.

I agree, you should just ignore them, as they have proved to be untrustworthy and have already lied to you, well their computer generated threatogramme has.

 

I wouldn't give them the privelige or satisfaction of having gone to all the trouble of printing off numerous letters and then having to pay for recorded delivery...just file under ignore, and keep any other toilet paper they send as evidence.

 

Definitely report them to the following;

Ha yeah, this should be good! Keep the envelope aswell, if it is posted by 2nd class or 'walk sort' then the contents are hardly worth worrying about, if it was that important the very least they would send it is first class..

"In previous letters sent to you it was made clear that unless an acceptable offer of repayment was made, we would take appropriate steps to recover the amount owing.

 

As you have failed to enter into a repayment plan we may instruct an agent to visit your home to discuss repayment of your account. Unless you make contact with us within the next five days our agent will contact you with a view to arrange a visit Monday to Saturday between the hours of 8am - 9pm.

 

To prevent the above actione taking place you MUST contact us URGENTLY so we can advise you accordingly.

The Bellshill Glasgow Address is in fact a run down industrial etate. There is a company there whose sole business in life is sending out threatogrammes for the pondlife. Now who gave them permission to handle your data without your express written permission is a matter for concern.

 

As for Andy B's threats about sending his Licensed Field Agents to your adddress. These are invisible people who may or may not be on the Leeds Losers payroll. They do not exist just like a valid CAPONE CCA,

 

You have more chance of seeing this man at your door
