    • so ask for a quote for their removal. you say due to the state of the tiles but give no indication as to what that is. You do need to have something specific to wave at them to get any movement and at the moment you dont. For all they know you could be telling lies just to get a few quid to go travelling with. so get proof of asbestos and a quote for removal if the roof is too far goen for repair. Pictures to show what they shopuldnt have missed will also bolster your case. I also note that it was 3 years ago so you have enjoyed the benefit of the roof for that time regardless of what it was made of. An estimate of the age of the roof will also be needed as that will help determine whether they should ahve been looking for such materials in their survey.
    • Has any one else had issues with the MCS scheme for renewables? We had a dreadful experience and had to fight for nearly 3 years to get a Biomass boiler removed after it was fitted incorrectly to work and unsafe. The scheme and its relevant bodies did everything to protect the installer and but us as a consumer at a disadvantage.  The consumer code body of the scheme requested the installer to record the meeting held at our house to discuss the issues with the heating system. We only became aware of this when the consumer body stated the meeting was recorded by the way, and this was evidence the system was working correctly. ICO has looked at this incident and concluded our data protection was breached.   
    • It was a data sim because my internet in the house was down I bought the sim from EE and used it in a data module that I also bought from ee at a cost of £100, They performed a credit check so had to give them my nationwide bank details for this.   It was just a sim card no phone or module or insurance, it was £20 per month on a rolling contract where they took the £20 in advance for the data. On my credit file they have a default of non payment of £20 dating back to 2016
    • you will have to start opening any mail that arrives so you can head problems off at the pass
    • we will need more details of hjow the phone sim ad bank accout are linked and why insurance seems to be what they are grouching about. Start at the beginning, name the bank and phone provider and whilst you are at it go through your bank statements to see if there is anything that resembles what yiyu are accused of. Also look at your credit files and see who has been  putting their feet all over it. if you have a great block of red inkl courtesy fo a phone provider them that will be the link but also understand that you might not have bought a data contract but some other product linked to the phone or not connected to it in any way

    • 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 need some advice as the title suggests we have been told by our landlord (and its stated in our tenancy agreement) that we must have our gas, electric, landline and broadband with utility warehouse, is he legally allowed to tell us who has to supply these?as we are having some issues with them

NO,he cannot do that,you are free to find your own supplier of gas,electric,broadband and phone line...

 

Guidance on unfair terms in tenancy agreements (September 2005) - The Office of Fair Trading

 

Right click on this link http://www.oft.gov.uk/shared_oft/rep...rms/oft356.pdf and save as to your desktop,its 127 pages

 

On page 113

 

Its is Potentially unreasonable restriction

Unfair term

Way of revising term

[The tenant must not] change the utility supplier without the landlord's consent in writing.

 

 

You can change utility supplier

Dump utility warehouse and find your own,sounds like your LL on commission with UW

Please use the quote system, So everyone will know what your referring too, thank you ...

I thought he might be as well! My landlord actually is a partner of an estate/ letting agents and has leased the property above ours and they have been told this as well!

Don't forget when privatisation came to Gas,Electric,Water and Phone,any home owner or tenant can change suppiers to get the cheapest deals,privatisation was to benefit the consumer that's us and not to line landlords pockets with special deals with utility suppliers


Please use the quote system, So everyone will know what your referring too, thank you ...
