    • Not sure about the lease read through all the documents i have and couldnt find anything about parking. Contacted the management Office to get a copy sent to me. When i complained to them about the ticket they told me to appeal so they clearly don't care.      and yes it's a gated underground parking area with key fob entry.

    • Oh and before bed   Officially leaked statements about a PHE report claiming that a UK study will say there is little evidence of children transmitting Covid.   Leakers stats look impressive until you realise he's on Johnson's SAGE so makes you think - huh - hows that then when all the science I've seen says different, and there are a number of reports of spreads in schools across the world from schools that had opened.   Then, little as the information 'leaked' is, you see   "largest studies in the world on coronavirus in schools" and then "The study was carried out in 100 institutions in the UK and is expected to be published later this year. About 20,000 pupils and teachers in 100 schools across England were tested to monitor the spread of the disease up to the end of the summer term – which runs from April-July in Britain."   Then you click. That averages 200 pupils and staff per 'institution' checked We dont know what these institutions are, but I think over 200 is the average for infants schools. Other schools tend to be FAR larger. Did they test everyone at each institution, or just some ??? we don't know yet - they are choosing not to leak that - Wonder why?   We currently understand that younger children (pre teenage) seem to present few/less symptoms  (statistically) but large increases in teenager covid has been reported as lockdowns ease and they start to meet more.   I know my OH's grandson (mother a nurse) has remained at school in classes one third or less that normal, with the majority of kids having front line worker parents - so well aware of the discipline and hygiene necessary. We know the schools maintain distancing, monitoring and maintenance which would be IMPOSSIBLE in normal class sizes.   So in a lock down situation, with class sizes significantly lower than normal (highly aware front-line workers kids mainly), increased distancing and cleaning made possible by SIGNIFICANTLY smaller class sizes - Has maybe resulted in no great evidence of covid spread perhaps?   Well Whoopy do. Lets ramp the class sizes back up to 30+ and see what happens ..     Lets let the mail lead the way Coronavirus infection rates are rising in ALL age groups under 65, Public Health England data shows with biggest surge in under-fives which 'should be watched very carefully' https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8615423/Coronavirus-infection-rates-rising-age-groups-65-Public-Health-England-data-shows.html     and the ONS stats showing how similar the stats are (a statistically significant  difference can be very little actual difference)   https://www.ons.gov.uk/peoplepopulationandcommunity/healthandsocialcare/conditionsanddiseases/articles/coronaviruscovid19infectionsinthecommunityinengland/july2020     Notes: These statistics refer to infections reported in the community, by which we mean private households. These figures exclude infections reported in hospitals, care homes or other institutional settings.  
    • i understand and agree you should write a formal letter of complaint about the email by royal mail.   i also think you should totally dispute the arrears balance, esp as it goes back so long   send them an sar and add to the text in it that you want statements/bills dating back to the gb energy a/c.
    • When you see the reports coming out that serco was involved from the earliest stages apparently to give expertise   and that resulted in 18 million plus people coming back into the UK untested from hotspots .. and then even the general advice to self isolate after they had travelled across the UK home being withdrawn in the run-up to the lock down   That went well says cummings

    • 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 left my rented room last wednesday night to go home to family for a few days over a long weekend. I had left my room secure and all my washing done all neat and tidy ready hung up for this morning so I could arrive have a quick wash and put on my work clothes and head straight out the door. Seperate to this I had left a Laptop in bits on my Desk and an external hardrive on the desk too. I leave a small window open 4x6 inches to keep the room ventilated.


I arrived this morning to find the bathroom completely ripped out and to find the WALL had been removed to the bathroom aswell. There was a Thick layer of breezeblock dust everywhere. I was really shocked but then when i opened my room door I found a 2-3mm thick layer of black/grey dust everywhere on the bed, on my clothes that were all neatly pressed and ready to wear this morning, all over my open laptop and H/D the place is horrible now the walls the floors the wondows it just feels really gritty and grimy. I phoned the Landlord (whos Live IN) and he siad yes the new bathroom had arrived on thursday unexpectedly and because he had 3 days off he had decided to attack the bathroom & move the door so he could fit the new bath too. When I asked about him letting me know as i would have asked him to put some masking tape around the door and put a towel under it to prevent the dust he said "oh we will in future but we just didnt think at the time but all the works is done now its just tiling and putting in the new bathroom."


Im ****ed off to be honest whether I can clean the components or not is my biggest headache but either way im royally fecked off and dont know what to do as he should have told me and didnt my H/D is making some weird noises now too :(


Any suggstions one what I can do or how I should approach this issue? I dont want to cause bad feeling in the house but hes really dropped a bollock here and im angry.

Having spoken to CAB, they have advised me as im under an assured tenancy agreement that I could effectively take him to the small claims court for the cost of the damage/cleaning due to his negligence in informing me that he was going to carry out the work.


what this will do to our relationship though him being a live in LL though is another matter.....


Ill try the softly, softly, talky, talky approach tonight and let him know how upset I am about this and ask him to foot the bill and we will see what happens.

I would have thought that the remedies are exactly the same whether he is your landlord, your friend, your mother or your enemy. If he has damaged your stuff he should be liable for the damage.

Either CAB are wrong (again) about this being an AST OR you have outlined your situation differently than you have on here.


- Do you live with your landlord i.e. he lives in the same house and you share bathrooms/kitchens/living rooms etc?


If so its not an AST as the CAB have advised. This is a mute point though as Steve_M has advised, as you can take them to court regardless. The only difference being, a court claim falling through the door is likley to result in your very prompt removal from the property!


Jaw Jaw not War War is deffinatley the way to go here.

All sorted now just was mighty upset but hes been really good about it and paid for the laptop and HD to go to a computer repair shop for it to becleaned and any parts replaced at his cost.




However Planner you have me concerned now though I live in a house with my own room the landlordis live in and we share bathrooms kitchens living rooms etc but I have an Assured Tenancy Agreement. Is this not correct forthe living arrangements as they stand?
