    • That still leaves the parties the Met isn't investigating though and the drinking culture in no10 though, doesn't it?   If they're not careful though, there will be accusations of no10 kicking the can down the road and possibly trying to influence the investigations.
    • Hi there. an update for you   1) independent surveyor report was sent to builder on 13 Dec.   2) builder only responded yesterday. They dispute the majority of the issues identified. Claiming for example: that we have influenced the expert witness surveyor, that we have caused some of the issues by undoing work, that that the surveyor is wrong,    3) through trading standards we gave them the month of nov to finish plus put things (known) right, at no point did they say a month was unreasonable, they were onsite for less than 10 days of nov,  early nov building control initially visited and highlighted issues, they claim building control have now signed off their work at the end of nov   4) building control visited last week at my request, there are still issues with their work, it has not been signed off and never was at the end of nov    4) builder now says there they didn’t have time to put known things right in nov (they are always contradicting themselves) and that they should be allowed to return to site  to fix these ‘minor snags’, the majority are not minor snags, they are building regulation contraventions    5) we have quotes from 3rd parties to do the work. We do not want the original builders back because:    a)quality of their workmanship has been called into question by ourselves, building control and a 3rd party surveyor    b) lack of trust in what they tell us - for example they’ve deviated from the plan, used different materials, refused to fix items saying nothing wrong and it’s how they always do it, refused to give deadlines, knowingly cut corners, have said work is signed off when it isn’t etc    c) their behaviour:  smoking weed on site, urinating next to my garden office, swearing, smoking, leaving the house with doors wide open and unlocked, leaving site unsafe with scaffold boards & materials lying across/over paths at end of day/week, all these things were raised with them verbally & in emails    d) they repeatedly said they hate working for us, they can’t wait to leave, none of them enjoy coming here etc   so, my question is.. do we have to allow them to return or can we say that we want a refund or for them to cover 3rd party costs?    im feeling that they have had enough opportunities to do the right thing and put things right, I’m also feeling that we aren’t being unreasonable by not wanting them back..   they say they can’t understand why we are rushing to get 3rd parties to finish the job and that the job is ‘live ‘ with them.   my feeling is that this job should have been finished in July (at no point have they provided a revised completion date despite us asking numerous times), they were given nov to finish & go, we’ve not heard from them over past 2 months so how could it still be live, and that we’ve spent 2 cold months living in a half finished house which doesn’t have heating completed, is damp & draughty, Ofcourse we want to get it finished asap! Any input would be appreciated, thank you.
    • Well, quite a change in stance from the Met after Johnson delays it   From 'We are fine with the report being released in its entirety, to effectively 'don't mention the bad stuff - which is as we first expected from Johnson and Dick before the surprising 'yeah release it'     Met Police asked Sue Gray to remove key details from report WWW.INDEPENDENT.CO.UK Force is running parallel criminal probe into potential lawbreaking at Downing Street     Wonder what self destroying message personal phones that was arranged on?
    • I were recently in an accident with another vehicle earlier this month and swapped details of both myself and the owner of the garage etc no police were contacted and both able to return as normal.   After contacting the garage they then inform me later on, in the day they required my own insurance to cover the cost only to be a named driver on the one being repaired and informed them of this.   I then requested they come collect the vehicle in which they did days later.   Didn't hear much more until recently with the owner of the garage contacting in abit of a panic for insurance details again and explained once more being a named driver on the policy, His insurance has received a '3rd party allegation' in which the garage owner has passed my details on for being the driver.   I and others have used this person for years and when we first used him I would ask him verbally how come we can swap vehicles and he informed me he had business insurance to cover anyone whilst their vehicle gets repaired and this is clearly a lie.   I did get some legal advice and one of them were to wait for a Notice of Intended Prosecution but i am concerned the owner might not be telling the truth to their own insurance or not telling them what happened??   Should I hand myself in the police and tell them the garage isn't being honest?   Any help or experience/expertises would be greatly appreciated.

I was just wondering if Jobseekers is paid for the next 2 weeks or the 2 weeks that have just passed.

 

The reason I ask is because I applied for jobseekers on the 22/10/09 and didnt sign on for the first time till the 3/11/09 and today I was expecting to get the jobseekers that covered the days between the 22nd and the 3rd plus the next 2 weeks of benifits to last me till my next sign on date of the 17/11/09

 

Or have I got the wrong end of the stick and the payment from signing on the 3rd is benifits for the time between me applying and my first sign on?

 

This isnt the first time iv signed on before but the first time I signed on there was a 8 week delay whilst they hamfisted their way around my application so never gave it much thought as to what weeks the benifits cover.

 

Any help would be appreciated.

You should have got paid today if your claim has been processed

Job seekers is usually credited to your account two to three days after signing on

 

Jobseekers is paid two weeks in arrears and usually the first three days are classed as waiting days on a new claim and you dont get paid

I think you should have got nine days benefit if its a new claim

You will get a full two weeks on the 20 November if you are still unemployed

JSA is paid fortnightly in arrears. Have you had your decision letter yet, telling you that you are entitled? That should set out the payments.

Sometimes my advice is not what people necesserily want to hear, but I will advise on facts as I know them - although it may not be what a person wants to hear it helps to know where you stand. Advice on the internet should never be a substitute for advice from your own legal professional with full knowledge of your individual case.

Cheers guys just wondering really, never really thought about it before. As soon as I posted the thread I read my booklet and saw that it said in arrears. Hopefully wont be on job seekers long enough to get my 2nd payment :)
