    • 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

I recently found out that the house i rent is going through repossesion proceedings, the court date is 5th august. I am pretty sure landlord doesnt have a buy to let mortgage. We paid 7 weeks rent in advance not listed as deposit total £1750. Obviously this isnt protected by the tenancy deposit scheme. i have been in touch with landlord to advise that i am going to withold the rent till the hearing and then pay if the outcome is good. She says she has paid mortgage recently and their is no probs and is insisting i pay my rent which is due tomorrow. Does any one have any advice for me it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

When you say you paid 7 weeks rent in advance, was that 7 weeks ago?

 

If it was less than 7 weeks ago, this counts as a deposit no matter what they choose to call it, therefore should be registered under a TDS scheme.

 

If you do withold rent, you are at risk of eviction. The LL cant evict you purely on the basis of the rent being the couple of weeks late that it will be, but under the section 21 route, they need no reason at all to ask you to leave, even if the process does take months to complete. It all depends on how much it means to you to keep on good terms with the LL in order to avoid this potentially happening.

it was in october 2009 so more than 7 weeks ago. Tenancy agreement is for 12 months think we will probably aim to move then anyway even if the repo is sorted as i dont want the hassle.

So can you clarify is your rent still being paid 7 weeks in advance, or did you originally pay 7 weeks in advance, then nothing for 7 weeks, then your normal monthly in advance?

I think we need to try and establish whether this rent paid in advance is a deposit by another name. What exactly does the agreement say?

yes exactly its a deposit by another name, the tenancy agreement states that at the end of the tenancy the 7 weeks rent in advance wil be returned. So i paid that and then paid my months rent and have contined to pay every 2 weeks since ive been here. The 7 weeks the LL still has but this is not protected by the deposit schemes, so obviously my worry is that we will lose this money.

This LL sounds a bit dodgy to me. Some people will advise you to keep quiet then sue LL for the dep + 3xdep penalty for non-compliance with the deposit protection legislation, but this appears to be becoming a very shaky and possibly expensive issue with some judges siding with the LL despite absolute proof/evidence being presented by the tenant of the LL's deliberate failure to comply.

 

I think you are sensible to plan to move - if you are paying the rent and LL is still not able to pay the mortgage that sounds like seriously bad money management.

 

I think you should write to your LL and say that as a result of your enquiries re your position regarding her non-payment of the mortgage (and you have no proof that she has actually paid it up to date....) you have also discovered that the 7 weeks money she took from you in advance at the beginning of the tenancy (I hope you have a receipt) IS in fact a deposit and would be seen as such by the courts. You therefore request that she comply with the legislation and place your deposit with the DPS (it costs her nothing) and notify you at once of the details. At this stage, I would say nothing about thinking of leaving - or of the 3 x deposit penalty she could incur. Just keep it friendly but firm. Always easier in writing.

 

By the way - you say you paid your month's rent and have then paid every 2 weeks - is it not a monthly tenancy?
