    • I cant help thinking that if we had to complete a questionaire that asked if you were "physically able bodied" before you were interviewed then this would be classed as discriminative.   Yet you can be asked to explain a gap in employment and that this is not classed as discriminative to people who may have had a mental breakdown.   Ok on this occasion I had taken a work break, if thay had asked a bout a break I had taken 10 years earlier then it would have been a different story as I had suffered depression and anxiety at that time.   It just seams to me that it puts people who have had a mental health issue at a disadvantage.      
    • I am just outside of the HS" zone for compulsory purchase. However,I put my house up for sale 4 weeks ago, and have had 2 viewers. Both said they like the house but the threat of HS2 having framework across the road put them off buying my house.    I am aware that I can take HS2 to court and get the court judge to (hopefully),force HS2 to purchase my house at market value under the Blight Order.    How do I go about starting the process?. Which court would the case go to?. Am i best enlisting a claims specialist with success in this field?.    The estate agent who my house is on the market with has told me that they have the feedback documentation from the 2 viewers testifying that HS2 put them off buying my house, so they would be available to the court.    Apparently there has already been 1 successful case on my street, and 1 two streets down, and there is another case on my street going through the court.    Any help, laws,quotes etc would be greatly appreciated.
    • Hi HubbaLoo and welcome to CAG   It's no surprise that the likes of CARS and Harlands  make far more charging admin fees than they do from taking a small monthly percentage of the gym fees.   It's best to tell CARS your new address - best that you know what they're up to at all times.   Send them a typed letter (no emails for now) saying:-   Dear sir or madam,   Membership at [town/city] DW Gym   My current address is as shown above.   I cancelled my membership when I relocated and supplied details of moving. I do NOT have to supply utility bills etc as demanded from you and will not enter into further correspondence with you.   If you continue to harass me for payments of admin fees, I will make formal complaints to the appropriate authorities.   Yours faithfully.    
    • It is not the DVLA that insist it must be insured, it is s.144A, Road Traffic Act 1988. Off road and SORN is one of the exceptions - s.144B of the same act.
    • Update  Ico and tpos are both useless Martin quinn has said to them that the signature on the tenancy agreement is diffrent and neither have asked for proof  The police have not given me an update on the supposed burglary or speakers that went missing that the man n van was meant to deliver  even after asking 9 times so now I'm trying to put pressure on them to tell me why they wont    I'm also going to try and get him under the Protection from Eviction Act 1977 as what he has done is a criminal offence

Hi gagers

 

I received a letter today from inter-credit international ltd [ never heard of them]

It states that it is on behalf of my water company at my old address [ i`m still with the same company]. It claims i owe the best part of £500 & that they have instructed there solicitors to commence legal action within 7 days & there is a case number quoted by the date & their reference number. I have no knowledge of this debt & how can anyone start proceedings this quickly.

I cant scan up the letter but if it helps i could copy it word for word, this is the first Ive heard of this & we moved well over two years ago with no hassle or unpaid debts for any utilities.

 

Any thoughts ?

I would suggest that a short letter stating that you have had a relationship with this company for x years and also the fact that you are still a customer of this company and your payments are up to date and can they please explain why and how this has occured ? I would also send a copy of the letter to the Chief Executive of the water company (by recorded delivery)


PLEASE NOTE - I am not a legal expert, what is stated is my own opinion and from what I have learnt from this forum and my own experiences.

Depending on which water company you are with, IF this is proved to be your debt, there are various schemes available so that you will not be taken to Court, so come back if you need further help.


Every journey begins with a single step :):)

 

Please note: I have no qualifications in this area - my advice is learned from the wonderful members of this Forum. Thanks to you all for your help.

Hi

Can anyone advise me on how to deal with inter credit, on re-reading the letter they state that they will commence legal action within 7 days of the letter being posted. It was posted on the 29 march [ second class] & arrived on thursday the 31st, what with the bank holidays they will be filing before i have had a chance to look into this matter.

 

Many thanks

Hi All

 

OK so now what do i do?.

 

Got another letter today informing me.

 

Notice of court action

 

We are now in the process of drawing up court papers with our solicitors P. W. Moody LL.M.

 

It goes on to explain the added court costs & solicitor fees & failure to comply will result in a judgement against me.

 

Our initial method of enforcement will be a warrant of execution & then bailiffs will attend my property to seize goods to the value off plus there removal costs.

 

I have not wriiten to anyone concerning this matter but i have no idea any debt owing as i`m still with the same water company, they have never provided me with any bill or statement pertaing to this matter, just demanding money & making threats.

 

Any ideas or advice is always welcome

As i have said before 'could' result in a court judgement, they have to WIN first.

 

There will be no bailiffs, warrants of execution or anything else until such time as they have been to court and WON their case. Even then you would have to have broken the payment terms of the judgement before any of their threats become a reality.

 

If you seriously don't owe them anything, then let them waste their time taking it to court, where they will lose if they cannot prove the debt, then you can sting them for YOUR costs.

 

It is more than likely more hot air, there is no panic unless you receive actual N1 papers from the court.

No problem, keep us up to date with any further developments.

 

Also contact Veolia Water and ask them if there is any outstanding balance on your last address.

This is the strange thing, when i moved i told them where i was moving to & that i would still be a customer & could they just transfer the bill to my new address.

They explained that it was not possible & i would have to set up a new DD etc etc, everything was very pleasant & amicable, no mention of monies owing

If you have had no further demands from them since sending the prove it letter, leave it at that for now.

 

If you do receive further demands, then we can esculate the necessary action. You have made your point clear to them and they have failed (up to now anyway) to substanciate their claim.

I've had a similar problem with Veolia. Initially I was told to deal with the DCA. I refused and have agreed a payment plan which is affordable.

Hi all,

 

If this is in the wrong section , apologies please move.

 

I have had a long battle with my Water company ,

when i say battle i mean i am fed up of company's telling me when i have to pay them & by what means.

 

Every water company sends out a yearly bill, so i pay it yearly .

 

I leave it to the very last day to pay & they send me scary letters & threaten me with court action

but i never intend not to pay just paying at the end of the year for a yearly bill.

 

The lady i spoke to today said " you can`t pay at the end of the year" i asked " why not" " well , because that`s why".

 

Now my question is .......... can you pay a yearly bill in the last few day`s of the year?.

 

I have not gone into the following year & i see no reason legal or otherwise for this not to be my choice.

 

I no longer have DD`s or SO`s as i keep my money these days & pay when it suits me not the company's.
