    • Well this is where the confusion sets in.......did they get that order in 2018 ?    Did they file the documents with the court ? If they didn't there is no amended new date on the order that they should comply with the order.   So you have an old Order with a new date...which in respect tells you nothing.   Reading between the lines looks like Portsmouth County Court is in meltdown hence all the errors. You stated you submitted a DQ but it was never processed to the N57 Notice of Allocation...so mediation then nothing.  
    • i think andydd was our expert on these things. i believe you have to carefully look at the tenancy agreement or whatever and see if it states admin fees are allowed. some do some don't

    • Its a case of the template response didn't quite fit your request but with the added bonus of throwing in a request to supply your Financial details.    .
    • Thanks for the prompt reply, I believe I was reading it differently to you then - So what you are stating is that Lowell have to prove the documents they filed with the court on the 29.Nov.2019 were indeed also served on me?   I would also ask - do they have to do this within a period of time? I read back this post ( I am still looking for my paperwork that I archived on this matter). It seems we did complete an AQ and that's why it went to mediation initially.    What should I do at this stage?

    • Hi @BankFodder
      Sorry for only updating you now, but after your guidance with submitting the claim it was pretty straight forward and I didn't want to unnecessarily waste your time. Especially with this guide you wrote here, so many thanks for that
      So I issued the claim on day 15 and they requested more time to respond.
      They took until the last day to respond and denied the claim, unsurprisingly saying my contract was with Packlink and not with them.
       
      I opted for mediation, and it played out very similarly to other people's experiences.
       
      In the first call I outlined my case, and I referred to the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 as the reason to why I do in fact have a contract with them. 
       
      In the second call the mediator came back with an offer of the full amount of the phone and postage £146.93, but not the court costs. I said I was not willing to accept this and the mediator came across as a bit irritated that I would not accept this and said I should be flexible. I insisted that the law was on my side and I was willing to take them to court. The mediator went back to Hermes with what I said.
       
      In the third call the mediator said that they would offer the full amount. However, he said that Hermes still thought that I should have taken the case against Packlink instead, and that they would try to recover the court costs themselves from Packlink.
       
      To be fair to them, if Packlink wasn't based in Spain I would've made the claim against them instead. But since they are overseas and the law lets me take action against Hermes directly, it's the best way of trying to recover the money.
       
      So this is a great win. Thank you so much for your help and all of the resources available on this site. It has helped me so much especially as someone who does not know anything about making money claims.
       
      Many thanks, stay safe and have a good Christmas!

Just like it's predecessor Flexible New Deal, the Work Programme is a confidence trick of huge proportions, a wizard wheeze to line the pockets of the providers and their ministerial backers, why else would anyone in their right mind prop up a scheme that patently does not work, and in this economy never will.

 

I find it utterly distasteful to see these odious ponces promoting and peddling the most low paid demoralising jobs in today's market as the next best thing to sliced bread.

On the News Wed Evening - G4S Olympic Security have got their comeupards and been shown for the charlatens they are - MOD have had to put 3,000 extra Troops to cover the G4S shortfall in 'Mandated' Volunteers - I believe they may be told to pay back the money they been already given because they are not able to fulfill their Contract.

 

One of the pimps in the Spotlight - how soon are the others going to get the Spotlight put on them - I bet a few are quaking in their shoes and working on how to swing this one - including Her in her Ivory Mansion and all the Others.

 

At long last people High Up are seeing how they have been Conned out of Taxpayers Money. Roll on the Steamroller - hope they flaten the lot - Cheaper in the long run - Sort out the few that are doing a Proper Job of it and helping people as they all should have been doing.

Human rights law will be extended to include the right to claim benefits and enjoy a comfortable standard of living courtesy of the taxpayer under plans unveiled last night.

If only.....Typical Daily Mail, the article is accompanied by a photo of four beer swilling, hoodie, spliff smoking, layabouts (models of course).

 

 

Right you lot! Dress attire for the next WCA will be a hoodie, and a baseball cap, essential accessories are a large Camberwell carrot, and a bottle of lager, don't forget the huge gold chain and a Blackberry. (Burberry scarves are optional)

Can someone please give me some advice…

 

I’m currently on JSA and receive an amazing £71 per week, which helps me look for work etc. I’ve been offered a job but its only 8-16 hours per week, I asked my advisor about working under 16 hours and he said I should be able to claim the majority of my JSA?

 

I want to work, but I don’t want to be worse off!!! I don’t want to say anything to the job centre/work programme provider, as this may affect things…

I don’t want to sign off and be worse off…whilst “Mr Ingeus Bank Ltd” get their bonuses and rent paid for…..

I’ve learnt that its best to keep ones mouth shut when it comes to the work programme, I find the work programme providers aloof and they only concur with you when you’ve got a job!

You can keep the first £5 of your JSA if single, not disabled or a lone parent. It's then deducted £1 for £1. I was told by my adviser that I don't need to take jobs under 16 hours.

 

I was told something about a form for part time workers.

Well unfortunately I didn't keep a copy. I just pointed out that they were peddling government propaganda and that their readers should not believe the report. I said I didn't expect they would publish my comment as they were merely government poodles.

No swear words.

 

Who the **** do they think they are? Threatening to contact employer and ISP provider because they consider that my post was in breach of their guidelines. WTF do they mean "reserve the right" who the hell gave them that right????

Weird that, because I'm always posting really derogatory and inflammatory comments, most of the time they don't get printed, I've never had a warning though, which has given me the hump! Why should you be the only lucky one? I'm off to give 'em some proper stick now.

one must not criticize the govt, or its policies...hence you will notice w2w, atos, and anything relating to benefit websites which try to tell the real truth of what is happening are suddenly 'taken down' with threats....'free speech' not anymore...my parents and grandparents must be turning in their graves...after fighting for this very right....this I will join osdset and see if I can get a warning....it is very interesting that this 'heavy handed' approach is being used or threatened to be used...

Ingeus DoLittle have a look on http://www.turn2us.org.uk/benefits_search.aspx this benefit calculator as it should give you some figures asto what help you may continue to receive.

 

If you find that with the rioght amount of hours you would be financially better off and wanted to go for it, simply write a letter or return your ES40 to the JCP and you can state that you have found work and would like to close your claim but do not add any emplyoyer info so that the Work Programme providers are unable to contact your employers and you are then able to chose exactly who you speak to on the phone so can feely ignore them despite being contracted to them for a 2 year period.

 

Can you tell I had a barney with one of our providers yesterday who demanded (yes demanded) information regarding a customer.... my answer was polite yet short and they were told to contact the customer directly as I didn't have the information the were asking and they were also attempting to obtain in an incorrect fashion! didn't like it so I offered to transfer to my line manager to discuss further but they declined and hung up!!!!! There was a note on the clients record stating that they didn't not want the provider to be given any info as they had removed permission under data protection :)

Good on yah flumps1976 :-D

 

After the fiasco of G4s abysmal performance not only for the Olympics but losing Prisoners and Vans of money, watching while drugs are thrown over Prison Walls etc etc it is only a matter of time before all the other Providers with Government Contracts start to get seriously Spotlighted - It is rather a pattern that these Firms with bad background performance all appear to have Ministers or Friends in High Places that get the Contracts over other Genuine Companies that have High Standards and Ethics.

 

It seems that the UK is getting as corrupt as some of the foreign countries that are well known for corruption - or perhaps the UK corruption exponants are just getting too cocky for their own good - only trouble is there are only 2 to choose from and once they are in Government they all do as they please and line their Friends and Family Pockets.

 

Think I will only vote in Council and Parish Elections in future - at least you can get at the Councellors and make life very uncomfortable in public for them.

 

Lets hope the Silver Vote can make a difference next time round.

 

At our Residents Public Meeting there was an A4e Supposed Careers Speaker (National Careers Service - No mention of A4e but I already knew) and she wanted everyone to fill in a form even though most People were over 65 to 80 - as a Committee Member I was expected to do likewise but declined - I wasnt giving my name, address phone number and NI No. to go on their Data for them to get paid - or who they would give my details to - just looked at the form again and in the small print - statisitcal and research purposes, and used for making a payment for the advice given to you. After the Presentation I could tell that I could teach her more than she could teach me.

 

Also flumps I looked at the Council Money Management Advice maybe for Our Friend but when I saw that it was A4e I decided he was better off with me, by the way he has upped his hours to 32 and the PPI reclaim killed his Overdraft and he is now Money Aware now and is £900 + in Credit - mainly with your help and advice .:-D:-D:-D

More good news for the struggling job seeker

 

Next year. The HB/CT roll_on and job grant are being stopped.

 

One report was made here:- http://www.insidehousing.co.uk/tenancies/government-to-end-extended-payments/6522435.article

 

More proof if any were needed that this government has no intention or interest in assisting people back into work, both those incentives were 'make or break' for many starting a new job.
