    • First of all welcome to the Forum. Do not worry about Drips+ -a dead sheep has more power so do not let them bother you and never contact them. It is a pity that you wrote to PE  which would be perfectly normal, except with crooks like PE  as you may have revealed you were the driver. You have lost the protection of POF A but it is not a fatal. Please do not even think of paying a penny. The amount may go higher in the short term but when the poor dears do not hear from you they get worried ( because they think to won't pay) do they start sending begging letters and reduce the amount owed.I One of the Site Team will be along shortly and give you a template to fill in which helps us to give you the best advice should they not give up. Just complete the form and post up photos of the signs at the entrance to the hotel and others around the car park and the terms on their ticket machine if there is one.
    • HI   You took possession of the Property in 2010 but when did you end the Tenancy Agreement?   Did you give them the required Notice to end your Tenancy?   You mention you paid a Deposit in 2010, was this returned when you ended the Tenancy?   You need to know exactly what they are claiming money owed is for and surprised that solicitors letter does not mention this.   Send the Landlord a Subject Access Request (SAR) asking for 'ALL DATA'  (ensure to send a copy to the Solicitor acting for them as well. 
    • yes only court...   can I confirm this was settled via Barclaycard and chargeback as it was a debit card, rather than section 75 via a creditcard?  
    • Hi   Sorry for the delay in getting back to you don't worry we have not forgot you.   So they have destroyed ALL DATA personal to you as you did not take the Property. (really they have put there foot in it)   If they hold no personal data then they have NO evidence of what was agreed to with your Holding Deposit and the refusal to return it.   Now if it was me I would let them drop themselves in it even further by responding to there SAR response.   Thank you for your SAR Response dated XX/XX/2019   Due to this response I require clarification of the following:   1. Have you followed the Data Protection Act 2018 & General Data Protection Regulations on Destroying My Personal Data?   2. If you have Destroyed All My Personal Data then what documentation do you hold that I have signed/agreed to the Holding Deposit being Non-Refundable and to provide copies of this documentation.   3. I require a copy of your Policy on Holding Deposits   Please bear in mind the above is what I would do.   I do think it is looking like you may have to go down the court route (make sure and have a good read of that link I previously gave you to the Tenants Fee Act).
    • HI   Firstly the parking in front of your drive, do you have a pavement with a Drop Kerb in front of your property to access your driveway, if so are they infringing on the Drop Kerb? (note your can ask the council to to paint a white line with lines at the end on the road in front of the drop kerb please note there may be a cost from the council to do so)   As for the CCTV look at this ICO link: https://ico.org.uk/your-data-matters/domestic-cctv-systems-guidance-for-people-using-cctv/   Due to the new DPA/GDPR if you have CCTV on your Property and it views outside of that Properties Bounderies they then need to register as a Data Controller with the ICO.   So I would make a Formal Complaint in writing to the Councils Data Controller, ICO (specifically asking if this individual is Registered with them as a Data Controller) & Police, you need to keep a good paper trail of this individuals actions.   I hope this individual knows the Law on Harassment as from your thread that is the impression I get is no matter what you do they will find something else to complaint about.

Housing Associations depend on payment of rent to get funding to build new houses and get money for large capital expenses. Because (at the moment) rent receipts are guaranteed they get favourable interest rates. When UC come in their income will be at risk and they will lose finance and what they do get will cost more. I believe the figures will result in a 8% drop in the housing supply!

Housing associations are also going to lose money due to the social sector size criteria (bedroom tax) from April as well. They will face huge loses and councils housing as well.

 

Ha and la's will be able to get direct payment under special circumstances the same as private tenants at the moment

I've just had a thought. The reasoning behind making UC monthly could be twofold. They say it is to prepare people for the world of work, it could also be a snide kick in the teeth letting people know what sort of money they would get if there were any jobs

 

 

Not quite sure how giving a person a weeks money and expecting them to make it last a month prepares them for work, but i could imagine a months benefits would be about equal to a weeks pay when in work.

Personally, I think that for JSA claimants, monthly pay is actually a good idea. When I was on JSA a couple of times, I know how hard it was lasting a month and a half from my last JSA payment to my first wage payment. Monthly JSA would have made the transition into work much easier. Anyone on JSA should be expecting to have to budget monthly once employed. But I do think there should be a proper transition for existing claimants. With regards to those on IS, ESA, child tax credits I have reservations over whether those who are vulnerable will get the help they need - I also think there's no point unless the person is ready to transition into work to pay them monthly. Maybe on ESA if someone is ready to consider work.

Some families on benefits can get over £500 a week, if you're out working, the employer doesn't pay you according to your circumstances, you get paid your wages regardless of family size, disabilities etc. I don't get paid that for knocking my pan in and dealing with people who would take my head off, given half a chance.

@bcham no current guidance is that you will still be required to attend to sign once a fortnight, the same as it is now

But if you're on a low income and work, you can claim benefits. I'm not sure I get your point here? You can't compare a single person circumstance to that of a family with children.

What single person are you referring to? I was responding to another post about 'what sort of money they would get if there were jobs out there'

My point is there is a culture of not taking work because it pays better being on benefits, I'm not saying everyone subscribes to that culture but it is there. That is all.

It sounded as you were moaning that a family can get £500 a week in benefits; but you as a single person get nowhere near that for work.

But that usually isn't about benefits being high, but about wages being too low and costs of things like travel being very high. We know that wages are too low because they need to be subsidised by benefits in order for people to be able to afford to live.

 

Or is someone supposed to take a job where they will be £100 a month worse off due to travel costs and other expenses?

I understand what you're saying Estellyn, it's a difficult situation to get out of. I don't think benefits are too high either. It does cost money to work, I know and its a sore one x
