    • Hi   I assume this mattress was the Tenants own property?   So after moving out the Tenants provided an attachment showing a stained mattress and wanting full deposit back and threatening to claim against you for this.   1. Tenants failed to notify you of this stained mattress issue until the end of tenancy after they had vacated the property.   2. You have no evidence that this was the actual mattress used in that property nor evidence to back up there claim the staining caused this mattress damage.  (i.e. one of them could have had an accident and wet the bed or done this when they moved from the property).     3. Ask them that you wish the mattress independently inspected. (which you are fully entitled to do and if it proves this claim is false it will be added to the deposit claim by you the landlord for damages as well as the Garden if you need to get landscapers in to carry out the work that should have been carried out by Tenants as per Tenacy Agreement and raised  by yourself (Landlord) on a few occasions which Tenants failed to rectify even at end of tenancy.   4. Ask them to provide you with the contact details of there Contents Insurance Company (tenants whether Private or Social Housing should always take out and have Contents Insurance but is up to that tenant) bet they don't provide it Big question is the Deposit protected in a Tenancy Deposit Scheme (TDS) and those Tenants that have left were given a copy of the Prescribed Terms for that TDS? (Bear in mind you may need to tell TDS that you are in dispute with the Tenant about damages i.e. mattress and Garden)    
    • plenty of time to research and calm down. nothing much to do until the end of june.    
    • well ...... 1st you need to go back to post 1 and carefully read ALL this thread from the start again and pay attention to the advice and the undertones it explains about 'debt'.   2nd ...the truth is you owe no-one ANYTHING, the OC wrote off and sold the debt, and got most of it back against tax and business insurance schemes ...throw the morality card out the window...the OC did by selling the debt on for <10p=£1. and the DCa want the full balance ...id so many fools stopped paying powerless DCA's tomorrow, the whole industry would collapse overnight.   3rd the only reason this is still around your neck is because you failed to follow given advice...had you ..it would now be statute barred.      ^^^ very important research the M+S credit card debacle using our enhanced google searchbox on this page   as for the PAPLOC reply,   D.. desipte a previous CCA requests, the claimant has yet to supply any/all of the required paperwork.   i: delete [CC is attached to this reply form]"   
    • Hi again   Yes, it's been a lovely day weather wise.   Guess you've better things to do with weather like today than help with this problem, so thanks very much for your input, it's very much appreciated.   Late this afternoon I did receive a reply from the tenants, and they are asking me to go 50/50 with getting the garden sorted, not only that, as they have moved away they are expecting me to get the quotes.   Regarding you view on this issue, its so easy not to see the whole picture and my thoughts that the staining damp may be of their own doing didn't occur to me as I was so locked into the historical leak. Taking a closer look at the room in question today, I'm convinced that they are trying it on with the stained mattress- they did mail through a picture and then a receipt for supposedly the mattress. My wife and I then took both the pic and receipt to the bedding store where purchase was made to ask if the two married up, the picture does not show any emblems/manufactures logo or such to prove that this is the case, so we are none the wiser- our thoughts being that the stained mattress is from elsewhere.   A few days back I spoke to our letting agent regarding all of this, as was quite correctly mentioned there are two parts to this equation, namely the mattress and then the property.   Our agents mentioned to me that as an inventory was not carried out initially with the let, (hindsight) the pictures that were used to advertise the property could not be used as evidence to present to the TDS to be compared to the pictures now as there is no proof that the advertising pictures were in fact how the property was when the let started. I mentioned that all digital pictures have a means of finding when that pic was taken- Geo tag/Metadata- agent was quite surprised by this. The agents thoughts then went for a hide in a vacuum-   This is going off at a tangent here-many moons ago my wife studied computer science at a local University, one of her classmates who she is still in touch with is now a practising Solicitor. My wife suggested that maybe I give her a call, a bit rude I guess, but I did  phone and with the pleasantries out the way  I asked for her opinion of the best way to get this sorted. Her remit isn't landlord type stuff, however she will speak to a colleague on Monday and come back to me.   The property is due to be relet on the 21st, we will ensure that the new tenants move in to a home that is immaculate and welcoming, trouble is its getting a tadge close to get the garden issues sorted in time.   I know that all this will get closure in the end, but at the moment I've had more fun with a toothpick-   Again, many thanks.

we bought a car in september last year in london from a neighbour of my brother in law it had a seized engine and was the worst for wear, the seller was a soldier who explained that he had the logbook but because he moved around a lot he would drop it in. We applied for a logbook in december as the car needed taxed and by this time we had a new engine put in it, new wheels new seats and the car has set us back approx 1700 pounds. Last week we had a guy turn up at our door in cornwall to tell us that mobile money owned the car that the soldier had taken out a thousand pound loan on the car in august and that they wanted the car.We refused and since then we have been in contact with this company given them the soldiers phone number and even the registration of the new car he has but because they cant get any money out of him the told us to settle out of court and we can give them 1000 pounds and then they only have to get 500 out of the soldier.We have told them to do one and now they are trying to get nasty we have hidden the car and they wont get it we have been told by the police to go to the county court and try for an injunction:mad:

The police are trying to be helpful, they are telling you the correct. Can you get a statement of the condition of the car when it was sold from the previous owner? Unjustenrichment-is one point you can bring up with LBL. I would tell you this hide the car, they will take it. Draw up a letter reg it to LBL. Explain to them you purchase the car that was not running...don't offer any money to settle, they would have put an intrest on the car. Make a statment to the police-just in case they show up to take it, you can then inform the officers to look into the statment-they MIGHT tell the agents to leave...

 

You seem to have a handle on it, you will need to try and get a copy of the BoS on the car...

Good, you can go for a injunction at the County Court, thats time based and you will need to follow up taking LBL to court. But from what you have stated they will fight, but you need to be tuff with them don't give them and inch-they will not. Remember, keep a recorder handy when the visit or video them..They are AGENTS not baliffs..

 

Keep the reicepts they are gold dust....

 

have a good read of the stickys, they will help you right out.

you are in the same position as me. but i did do a hpi check. you still need to hide the car. they come at anytime 11.30 at night or 4 in the morning. with my forum name you can imagine how many cameras they are around my house with sound. the last time the bailifs came he wishes he never. 11.15pm knock on the door they said they have police powers to enter my property to take the car in them words. and the language they used when i slammed the door shut. getting a court order from the bailif company was not a problem and the police are also dealing with acting on police powers,

without a hpi check the police are right in your case. but you have costs i.e engine. this is what i did. i never contacted lbl at all i kept the car hidden and asked my solicitor to send a letter to lbl saying i wanted to fight in court. i now have a court case in 1 month. and if i was you i would do the same. dont sell the car or give it back to lbl because they will still fight you for costs. take your chance in court. at the very least if you loose you will be able to remove the engine.

Slimjim, may I suggest you look up Unjust Enrichment-in this case you may fall under this. A HPI check is NOT full proof, LBL BoS-sometimes will not show up on a HPI check. Look at it this way, the car you purchased did not run, you put in an engine and got the car road worthy again, if you can show that as the "new owner" and repaired the car by reciept you may come to some arrangement with them by letter...say you disable the engine for good-if you know what i mean. I was in the same postition as you. If i knew what i know now, they would have a burnout shell.
