    • HB, is the Kent/France issue related to current arrangement with French border officers in Kent and UK border officers in France ?   Not sure whether this  arrangement will change from 1/1/21, if there is no deal.   Given previous actions by French farmers and industrial action by others, then with UK out of the EU, I can see problems ahead. Could there be blockades at French ports, with UK unable to exert much pressure through EU ?      
    • Very good, UB.   I'm not clear on the status of Kent now. People are talking about it being part of France, etc, but how is tht when the 'border' only applies to lorries?
    • Campaign starts ? Independence for Kent, so it becomes a separate customs area and can charge a tariff on goods transported through its territory.  With the money raised, citizens of Kent might then have little or no income taxes to pay.   I could see this campaign being started and it could grow in popularity.   Would be funny if Brexit led to break up of UK and break away by some English counties. 
    • SERCO seem to be a default company that Government use to perform contact centre type tasks. So any department faced with a problem, say a sudden increase in incoming phone calls, which they cannot handle, because they are dealing with more immediate issues such as making payments to the public, may in the short term involve SERCO.   SERCO seem to employ a lot of security cleared, DBS checked, financial checked etc employees, so they seem to be equipped and ready to manage tasks on behalf of Government departments.   No idea just how much work SERCO does on behalf of Government, but I should imagine it makes up a sizeable chunk of their business.   Public Health departments may want to perform the work themselves, but given the number of employees required, the recruitment process involved, the hours of work 24/7 and just how quick they need to be set up to perform the work, I question whether they are better placed to do so.   I would always prefer public sector employees over outsourced contracts, but I can understand why Government uses companies such as SERCO.

    • I’m in desperate need of help
       
      I bought some clothes online in may through Evans and paid through PayPal
      returned them all seven days later
       
      I waited the 14days for my refund and no refund came
      I put in a dispute through PayPal but I didn’t get any emails to escalate the case - PayPal closed it. 
      evans said they couldn’t refund the money because PayPal have cancelled the refund because of the open dispute
       
      I contacted PayPal
      they said the dispute had been closed but Evans at no point had attempted a refund.
      fast forward to today
       
      I’ve got copies of numerous messages sent to and from twitter messages as it’s the only way I can contact them
      I’ve also contacted their customer service too
      all I get is PayPal have cancelled refund because dispute is still open.
       
      I have proved that the dispute is closed
      I have got an email saying that if Evans sent the refund they would accept it
      but up until the date I got the email they have not once attempted a refund .
       
       I have sent them a letter before court email
      I have even offered to have the full refund as a gift card just to get this sorted !
       
      I’m literally at the end of my tether and don’t know where to turn next !
       
      i suffer with mental health issues and this is affecting my health and I’d saved the money for a year to buy these clothes as I’m on a low income .

Does the law stipulate a deadline for the landlord to return the deposit to the tenant after the termination of the rent agreement, the tenant having moved out and the property is in good order ?

No as such. The deposit was always the tenant's money and once the landlord knows he has no call on it it should be returned without delay. There can be no excuse for holding onto it.

Hi Aequitas

 

I am not entirely sure about what you meant with “it should be returned without delay”. As I understand the money of my deposit was handed over to a Tenancy Deposit Scheme organization by my landlord, where is kept.

 

Do you mean that if my landlord ask the money back from the TDS on the exact day of the termination of the agreement and delivery of the keys, I will get it right in the next day ?

 

By the way, I do not know the exact details of the procedure. Once the landlord asks the money of the deposit back from the TDS, this organization first send the money to the landlord and only then he gives it to the tenant –or- the organization send it straight way to the tenant ( supposing the tenant already informed it about his new address ) ?

Which scheme is the deposit in. If it is DPS, then DPS have the money and you and the LL have to separately contact the scheme to release the money (you should have a code number). If it is protected by another scheme, the landlord has the money - the scheme protection works by insurance.

Hi Steve_M

 

The deposit is of the DPS scheme.

 

So, is there some deadline for the landlord to ask DPS to release the money ?

 

And will the DPS organization release the money straight to the tenant ?
