    • Ah I see what you mean. That is unfortunate, but guess there's little I can do then. Thanks very much for your help!
    • OK I sent CCA request on Monday 7/6 recorded delivery with a postal order uncrossed with £1 stating on the back that it didn't go towards any alleged debt.   Wednesday 9/6, received the postal order back from Arrow with a cover letter saying they no longer charge a fee and 'we will respond as soon as we can'   Then on Friday 11/6 morning a letter dated the 10th (they said if we didn't hear back from you by the 11th) I got a letter of claim from Drydens saying 'if you do not provide proposals to repay, legal action may be issued in the county court'.  Along with 'you have 30 days to respond'. Attached is a printout of an income and expenditure sheet.
    • Your attachment was viewable in your first post.   Does the issue you mention with the wallpaper/slight stain really constitute a breach ?  Is it significant enough ?   The wallpaper was probably applied before the wall was properly dry.  But the other possibility, is that the tenants did not open windows regularly to ventilate the room.  It is important for windows to be opened or put into a vent position on a regular basis, to ensure that moisture is allowed out.   If the tenant had clothes drying in the house, with baths/showers being used etc, this may have helped cause the wallpaper peeling  and the damp stain.   Today has been a lovely Summer day in many parts of the UK, so the tenants may not be as quick to respond.  Same issue with replies to this site, so you might get other responses later.   The tenant is unlikely to try to pursue you for the matress or health issue they say is caused by a damp issue.  Unlikely to have sufficient evidence and their own actions may be the cause.   They are most likely deciding whether to complete work in the garden or not.   You are within your rights to hold onto the deposit for now, until the reasonable request to return property to pre let condition is completed.    
    • Oh Yorky, I'm so sorry you're still having trouble with your dad's hospital.   I can't believe they are still being so awkward, I sometimes think they (companies in general, not just hospitals) forget that we put ourselves through this stress and worry not because we want to, or even because we have to, but because we want what's best for our loved ones.   Their advice for you to deliver the form in person is at odds with the advice on their own website stating that visits have been suspended due to Covid. I mean, I would understand if someone wanted you to drop off clothes for your dad, but a piece of paper? Which could end up anywhere? That's... crazy.   I don't know if the following link is worth a try or whether you've been down this road, but the hospital website has details of all the consultants Consultants | North Tees and Hartlepool NHS Foundation Trust WWW.NTH.NHS.UK If you want to find out details of our hospital consultants and contact information you can search for them in our A-Z. obviously you'll know your dad's consultant name, but the phone numbers on there, are they ward ones that you've tried before or do they look different?   That said, even if you are more successful with that, definitely still get PALS and as much senior management on board as you can with a formal complaint. You shouldn't have to go to such lengths to get hold of the right people and for the right information, especially at such a stressful time.   You point out that you remember you're doing this for your brother and your dad, which is the best approach. I'm sure they, in their own way, know that you are pushing yourself and pushing the hospital for an outcome as you are is because of them.   I know it's easy for someone on the internet to say "look after yourself", "do this to help with stress" etc, but if you do feel you need extra help with dealing with your stress/worry, please don't be afraid to seek help from a doctor yourself. A "well" you is the best sort of support for your dad and brother.   I wish I could offer more support and I'm sure that if anyone else of the CAG community has any other suggestions, I'm sure they will come here and let you know.  
    • Ok update.  I have spent the last week or two, trying to get help from the Staff Nurses and Matron, regarding the Consultant or someone to have my dads lack of capacity documented, either their own paperwork or me sending COP3. I   they have informed the consultant looking after my dad, who at this moment is sounding very ill, with medical issues on top of delirium and confusion, he is apparently having blood transfusion bag things. not eating and drinking. I have even spoken to the consultants secretary to explain the urgent matter and to have the consultant contact over the last few days WITHOUT SUCCESS, conversion ended today with its a legal form can I take it into hospital personally, er..I dont drive and Im in Northampton, Hospital is Stockton on Tees.    the nurses cant help need to speak to consultant!!!!!!! conversation ended with well I will complain to PALS, GMC secretary of Health or whoever......reply was looks like it then?   I have just compiled a 3 page letter [well e mail one] sent to PALS, I will follow up with a written one and to whoever else I can contact.   I need this medical form before I can do anything else with court or appointee   anyone have any ideas cos Im now at my gasping point, wondering why the hell am I taking on all this stress and worry, then I think of my younger brother, and that reminds me why I am doing it and doing it for.

In November 2008, I ordered my wedding dress from The Bridal Gallery in Coventry, and was assured it would be with me in good time for my wedding (which is on 20/8/10). I was told it would be ordered in the new year as it wasnt needed for 18 months, so I just sat back and waited a while happy in the knowledge all was being taken care of in plenty of time.

I sent the owner of the shop an email in the early part of this year as during that time, even though I had spoken to the lady in the shop several times and been reassured the dress would be here 'in good time' I still hadnt been given a date of when it would be in the shop.

I finally got the below response after further emails being sent to her and phone calls being made:

'because your dress isn't needed until August, it won't be with us until well into the new year. We wouldn't even want it before April, If you want to pop into the shop and try our sample on again you're more than welcome - it would be good to see you again.

 

 

We'll be in touch as soon as we've got it, unless we see you before.'

When I got in touch in March of this year asking to try on the sample again, as stated above, I got this response:

I'm afraid we're no longer carrying the sample of your dress. I'm sorry, you're just going to have to wait until your arrives. We're still looking at a May/June delivery.

 

I got in touch yet again at the end of June as I still hadnt heard a thing off the shop, and finally spoke to the owner who said the dress would be available for me to try on on 7th August... This then leaves approximately 6 working days to do any alterations required and for me to have a second fitting and possibly yet more alterations before I need to pick up the dress on 19th August at the very very latest as I am getting married on 20th.

 

I also have recently started a new job so cannot take off any extra time to go for fittings etc as am taking mroe time off than Im allowed already for the wedding and honeymoon so it will be virtually impossible to get to the shop on says other than a Saturday (I have 1 saturday left after the 7th August until the wedding date)

 

I am deeply concerned that this has not been handled appropriately and it is causing myself and my family a lot of distress as its the only thing relating to the wedding that has not been completed

 

I find it impossible to believe that this work will be done to a high standard, yet the owner of the shop believes this is more than an adequate amount of time. I would like to know what my rights are to complain about the lack of service from this shop, especially as wedding dresses arent exactly something cheap you buy every day.
