    • @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

i have just recieved a letter from cap quest for a sum of £1146.50 the debt relates to an unpaid balance due under the credit agreement dated 01 oct 98, the rights and duties were passed to the creditor on 29th sept 06. included in the letter is a stat demand for bankruptcy petiton.

 

I last made a payment in 2001 to littlewoods. I have had a couple of letters from capquest but never acknowledged them. I am worried about losing my home as i am unable to pay this amount as i am a single mother 0f 2 young children and money is tight. Am i right in thinking if i reply with in the 18 days the following letter it will go away as they are just using bully boy tactics

 

Dear Sir/Madam

Acc/Ref No 4563210025897412

 

You have contacted us regarding the account with the above reference number, which you claim is owed by ourselves.

 

We would point out that under the Limitation Act 1980 Section 5 “an action founded on simple contract shall not be brought after the expiration of six years from the date on which the cause of action accrued.”

 

We would also point out that the OFT say under their Debt Collection Guidance on statute barred debt that “it is unfair to pursue the debt if the debtor has heard nothing from the creditor during the relevant limitation period”.

 

I have never acknowledged the debt so unless you can provide evidence of payment or written contact from me in the relevant period under Section 5 of the Limitation Act, I suggest that you are no longer able to take any court action against me to recover the alleged amount claimed.

The OFT Debt Collection Guidance states further that “continuing to press for payment after a debtor has stated that they will not be paying a debt because it is statue barred could amount to harassment contrary to section 40 (1) of the Administration of Justice Act 1970”.

 

We await your written confirmation that no further contact will be made concerning the above account and confirmation that this matter is now closed.

 

We look forward to your reply.

 

Yours faithfully

That's the letter. Report them to the OFT and TS as soon as possible. Do not phone these losers and never sign your name.

Try not to panic. You won't lose your home and after that letter they should crawl under a rock.

If you have received a stat demand then you must apply for it to be set aside to do this you will need forms 6.4 and 6.5 from here Forms

 

This needs to be done at the nearest county court that deals with bankruptcy to find your nearest one have a look here Her Majesty's Courts Service - Court Information and Addresses

hi i have sent my letter to capquest as above asking them to prove it, i'm now looking at doing the 6.4 and 6.5 form to have it set aside. The forms are asking for dates and times of hearings etc. my letter from capquest only gives the name of the court nothing else, also the letter was sent by normal post so how can they prove when the 18 days.

Hi LL....apologies as I hadn't seen this before....firstly if you haven't already PLEASE report this to the OFT...you will need to set this aside at the nearest county court to you that handle bankruptcies...please note that you should ring the court named on the demand to check they handle bankruptcies, if it isn't then it could possibly be an abuse of the process, you've got 18 days from the date you received it to set it aside, and you'll need to submit forms 6.4 (set aside) and 6.5 (affadavit).....they are trying to collect on a debt that is statute barred !!! set this aside !!! Using the Insolvency Service to collect debts is generally frowned on by the judiciary.....(let alone the debt being statute barred).....

 

You will get a date once you take the forms 6.4 and 6.5 to the court (along with the original sat demand) - take copies of everything....Capquest will NOT turn up to court !!! Another debt collection agency had requirements placed on them earlier this year for doing JUST this - The Office of Fair Trading: OFT imposes requirements on 1st Credit over debt collection practices

 

you can find the forms electronically here - http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/dca-legal-successes/86067-getting-statutory-demand-set.html

 

And you will find PLENTY of examples of affadavits in here - DCA Legal Successes - The Consumer Forums

 

If you aren't sure of what to do then please shout...you MUST report this to the OFT....
