    • Hi   I hope this is the right place for this post. I dont know a great deal about eviction so I'm seeking some expert advice if possible 🙂 My daughter has received a 6 months section 21 notice which, as she has just given birth to my granddaughter, has caused her stress hence me trying to help her out. Today the landlord has also asked for one months notice if we do manage to find her another place. Is this correct? She currently has a fixed term notice that ends in february and I assume she'll then go on a rolling contract so I'm assuming that it is 🙁 TIA 
    • If I have the correct local authority check these links :    https://www.richmond.gov.uk/services/roads_and_transport/roads_and_road_works/road_and_pathway_maintenance   https://www.richmond.gov.uk/services/roads_and_transport/roads_and_road_works/road_and_pathway_maintenance/road_and_highways_obstuctions   second link has the following :   Builders' skips – check if a skip is licensed before reporting Scaffolding or hoardings Builders materials Temporary works including traffic lights - check if temporary works are scheduled before reporting Overhanging tree branches, hedges Mud/debris on the road Mixing concrete or mortar on the highway Unauthorised vendors or traders Encroachment of highway boundaries * Discharge of water onto the highway Blocking "Rights of Way" Plants and bushes Illegal signs
    • I would challenge all the way ! Check one of my posts as I had a similar issue with my local authority , tree branches and bush covering sign. Took photos same day and a week later lo and behold the branches were cut back. Not my issue the council does not maintain the highways. Looking at your photos how could you tell there were any lines? Of course the council threw it straight back so I appealed and went to the next level and submitted my photos as evidence , they backed down then although still did not admit defeat and stated it as a goodwill gesture... I got some great advice on here so don't be stressed or worried follow the guidelines on here. Either way they are going to try to force you to pay so don't give the @$$ holes an easy ride....
    • Morning Caggers. Hope everybody is safe and well.   Ok will try to make this brief as possible !  Got an early xmas gift from Minster Bay watch in York while working on a site on a retail park, Vehicle overstayed max period (2 hours) . Basically had a short contract with the NHS delivering and installing IT equipment to one of their offices based on the retail park above one of the retail stores. The signage stated two hours max parking , spoke to receptionist who said he would put me on the exclusion list while I was there. Basically has me entering at 8.12 and exit at 15.00 ( to grab some lunch )  although I was there until 6.30pm at night still working. So in theory 8.12am till 18.30pm To add into the mix the car I was driving was just purchased on the 7th Nov and the charge letter dated 10th Nov so again in theory the transfer of ownership was not in my name then , I notice on letter it states we may have obtained your details from DVLA. I actually got the V5 today stating acquired vehicle on 7th Nov   So in the letter column on left is as follows:   Charge notice no ***** Date of contravention - 10/11/2020 Vehicle reg - My current vehicle Vehicle make - - Current vehicle Vehicle model - Current vehicle  Charge value - £100 Date of issue - 20th Nov  Location - Heslington Retail Park - York - YO10 5LA   I have attached a pic of the main body of the letter they are of course offering a discount of £60 ....how jolly nice    So best course of action?   1) Tell them I was driver\owner but working for the NHS with proof of site visit and exemption and lay it on thick about being NHS worker?  (although I imagine it won't make a difference)  2) Deny all knowledge as technically I was not the owner at that point and ask them to prove it  3) Totally ignore and wait for the toilet paper...sorry threat o grams?   I have now left that contract but still have my NHS badge as proof of employment   Thanks NTD...

I wonder if anyone can give me some advice.

 

I am defending a claim against a previous employer and the court date is scheduled for early September. They had until yesterday (24 August 2011) to submit / exchange their witness statements for which they have failed to do.

 

What happens next......

Hi Missmoore and welcome to Cag

 

Have they failed to submit it to Court or just to you? have you submitted yours and sent them a copy?

I would allow a few days or even a week then contact the court with regards to them failing to comply with Court Directions.

 

Regards

 

Andy

Hi,

 

They failed to submit them to the court and to me. I have provided the courts and previous employer copies of the witness statements, so i'm not too impressed as they now have the opportunity to re-write their statements having read mine :(

 

The court date is less than two weeks away, so want to know as much as possible as to what i can do, say at the hearing or even get it struck off if possible.

I always advise for that very reason never exchange until you have received theirs.Make sure the Court gets theirs on time but as you state they now have the heads up.Take a look at your Notice of Allocation and directions if it states that penalty for not complying with the dates may result in the Court striking out then consider that option in a few more days.

 

Best of luck

 

Andy

The letter says the following:

a) Each party must deliver to every other party and to the court office copies of all documents on which that party intends to rely at the hearing no later than 14 days before the hearing.

b) The Judge may refuse to consider a document or take into account if a copy of it has not been sent to all parties.

c) Both parties shall, no later than 14 days before the hearing serve on each other the witness statements of themselves and all witnesses on whom they intend to rely.

I did not send them their copy of the witness statements until the last day as i didn't want to be the one to fail the courts directions.

 

Because they have not submitted the witness statements to the court on time can i ask the Judge to strike off or refuse the statements? or can i amend mine (as could of done a better job as kind of got confused)

There will be a note in the Notes: section.

 

. If you do not comply with these directions, any other party to the claim will be entitled to apply to the court for an order that your statement of case (claim or defence) be struck out.

 

So as stated wait a few more days, check with the court and if still not submitted or received by yourself then you have the option to make application to strike out their claim.Alternatively you could make application to amend or resubmit a further WS.

 

Regards
