    • Can you ask your GP to get a second opinion on the NHS?  (I ought to know because I'm a retired NHS manager, but worked in mental health where x-rays didn't really feature very much(!).)   Your GP may be reluctant for various reasons but you've got nothing to lose by asking.  Might be difficult if there's only one consultant in that specialty locally.   If that is a non-starter, you could ask your GP for a private referral if any of the relevant specialists run private clinics.  Your son'll get seen quicker and an initial private consultation shouldn't cost more than about a couple of hundred quid.  Then take it from there.   (Emphasise to your GP what your real concerns are and why you have them - even if it's just "I looked it up on the internet and it looks like this which can lead to serious complications.  What do you think?  I'm really worried...")   EDIT:  Just looked on my local NHS Clinical Commissioning Group website and searched for "second opinion" but nothing comes up...  I thought you were entitled to one - you'll have to ask your GP.  Or look on your own CCG site.  Oh - despite being a NHS manager I have paid to see a consultant privately.  £150 well spent - if you can afford it... which I appreciate not everyone can.
    • dont think they are even allowed to offer settlement by instalments, they are not creditors.   read the letter carefully and understand what it doesn't actually say....like the word WILL anywhere.   they,  a DCA, can't recommend anything and their client most certainly wouldn't have disclosed anything to a powerless DCA about what their solicitors might or might not have said to them. and ofcourse a solicitor is in no position whatsoever to suggest to their client they get back to the DCA and tell the DCA to tell you their client will accept instalments!   the letter is a load of ole BS that is concocted by the dca without any input or knowledge of their client nor their clients solicitor...   dx      
    • The paediatric orthopaedic consultant at the fracture clinic told us today that he believes it is just a sprain behind the knee. I'm concerned my GP will say something along the lines of, 'you have seen a consultant, he says it will heal in 2 to 3 weeks, you don't know more than him!', or something like that. It's just that I believe I can clearly see a fracture. And as there was no fall or hard knock, only a very tightly streched knee bending at an angle behind, with a load. I figured that the temdon must have pulled some bone up. And thats the injury I found online. I totally take on board what you are saying. You are correct. I guess I'll see what my GP says tomorrow, hopefully she allows me to email the images, if she doesent have access to them already. Thanks again

    • 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

My small, company has been reisding in a property for a number of years. The person I believed to be the responsible person gave us the key. On a number of occasion we have asked who do we pay rent to and how much. No reply.

 

Now the overall landlord wants to evict us and will serve one month's notice and is blaming us for not paying the rent.

 

Questions, can they evict us or should they first offer us a chance to regularise the situation - but we can't afford backdated payments.

 

Secondly, is there anything to sya that it should be more than one month's notice.

 

Thirdly, even if we had a lease agreement, ho wmuch notice would they be likely to give i.e. is it worth challenging.

 

Thank you

A lot of this doesnt make sense to me. How was the property found originally? I specifically dont understand why you have asked how much rent, you must surely have known this prior to taking occupancy?

It is a council commercial property. We were invited to take occupation. The person who we believed had management of the building gave us the keys. We kept asking for a lease but never received anything. The council is now doing a review of its buildings.

 

There is no written contract thus no terms to refer to.

I'm still not getting it.

 

Presumably the council dont just ring random numbers until someone answers who wants a commercial property?

 

And surely before taking occupation you asked about rent? You didnt think you were renting it for free?

And - no written contract doesnt mean no terms. What was verbally agreed?

. That's where I am at.

 

It seems that the person who rented us the space was slack. Your questions are reasonable and the same questions I asked. The answer given was that it will be sorted out later. Now someone else has taken over managing the building and their solution is to begin eviction proceedings on the grounds of non-payment of rent - I believe. Am still waiting for eviction notice.

 

My point is - if we offered to pay rent and asked many times how much but none was requested is that our fault. There may be some verbal terms, but none relate to period of tenancy or rent amounts and anyway I think it will be argued that the person who made arrangements with us didn't have the authority to do so. Bit of a mess - local government eh?

Certainly not your fault (the entire situation), but it smacks me as frankly bizarre that you took occupancy of a property without even knowing the rent.

 

Anyway, I suppose that is by the by. Without particular terms in a contract, I suspect that your rights and security are extremely limited. However, I am not an expert in commercial lets. Hopefully Aequitas can advise further on the ramifications of lack of any kind of contract (verbal or written).

 

You may also wish to post on the LandlordZone forums - they have greater expertise in commercial lets than we do here.

This is certainly a strange one. The absence of any agreed terms makes your position difficult. I think what you have is a tenancy at will which carries no security of tenure.

 

It is a bit unreasonable to demand you leave for non-payment of rent when you have been asking to pay. I think you need to go over the head of the person you are dealing and/or get onto your councillor.
