    • Hi   I assume this mattress was the Tenants own property?   So after moving out the Tenants provided an attachment showing a stained mattress and wanting full deposit back and threatening to claim against you for this.   1. Tenants failed to notify you of this stained mattress issue until the end of tenancy after they had vacated the property.   2. You have no evidence that this was the actual mattress used in that property nor evidence to back up there claim the staining caused this mattress damage.  (i.e. one of them could have had an accident and wet the bed or done this when they moved from the property).     3. Ask them that you wish the mattress independently inspected. (which you are fully entitled to do and if it proves this claim is false it will be added to the deposit claim by you the landlord for damages as well as the Garden if you need to get landscapers in to carry out the work that should have been carried out by Tenants as per Tenacy Agreement and raised  by yourself (Landlord) on a few occasions which Tenants failed to rectify even at end of tenancy.   4. Ask them to provide you with the contact details of there Contents Insurance Company (tenants whether Private or Social Housing should always take out and have Contents Insurance but is up to that tenant) bet they don't provide it Big question is the Deposit protected in a Tenancy Deposit Scheme (TDS) and those Tenants that have left were given a copy of the Prescribed Terms for that TDS? (Bear in mind you may need to tell TDS that you are in dispute with the Tenant about damages i.e. mattress and Garden)    
    • plenty of time to research and calm down. nothing much to do until the end of june.    
    • well ...... 1st you need to go back to post 1 and carefully read ALL this thread from the start again and pay attention to the advice and the undertones it explains about 'debt'.   2nd ...the truth is you owe no-one ANYTHING, the OC wrote off and sold the debt, and got most of it back against tax and business insurance schemes ...throw the morality card out the window...the OC did by selling the debt on for <10p=£1. and the DCa want the full balance ...id so many fools stopped paying powerless DCA's tomorrow, the whole industry would collapse overnight.   3rd the only reason this is still around your neck is because you failed to follow given advice...had you ..it would now be statute barred.      ^^^ very important research the M+S credit card debacle using our enhanced google searchbox on this page   as for the PAPLOC reply,   D.. desipte a previous CCA requests, the claimant has yet to supply any/all of the required paperwork.   i: delete [CC is attached to this reply form]"   
    • Hi again   Yes, it's been a lovely day weather wise.   Guess you've better things to do with weather like today than help with this problem, so thanks very much for your input, it's very much appreciated.   Late this afternoon I did receive a reply from the tenants, and they are asking me to go 50/50 with getting the garden sorted, not only that, as they have moved away they are expecting me to get the quotes.   Regarding you view on this issue, its so easy not to see the whole picture and my thoughts that the staining damp may be of their own doing didn't occur to me as I was so locked into the historical leak. Taking a closer look at the room in question today, I'm convinced that they are trying it on with the stained mattress- they did mail through a picture and then a receipt for supposedly the mattress. My wife and I then took both the pic and receipt to the bedding store where purchase was made to ask if the two married up, the picture does not show any emblems/manufactures logo or such to prove that this is the case, so we are none the wiser- our thoughts being that the stained mattress is from elsewhere.   A few days back I spoke to our letting agent regarding all of this, as was quite correctly mentioned there are two parts to this equation, namely the mattress and then the property.   Our agents mentioned to me that as an inventory was not carried out initially with the let, (hindsight) the pictures that were used to advertise the property could not be used as evidence to present to the TDS to be compared to the pictures now as there is no proof that the advertising pictures were in fact how the property was when the let started. I mentioned that all digital pictures have a means of finding when that pic was taken- Geo tag/Metadata- agent was quite surprised by this. The agents thoughts then went for a hide in a vacuum-   This is going off at a tangent here-many moons ago my wife studied computer science at a local University, one of her classmates who she is still in touch with is now a practising Solicitor. My wife suggested that maybe I give her a call, a bit rude I guess, but I did  phone and with the pleasantries out the way  I asked for her opinion of the best way to get this sorted. Her remit isn't landlord type stuff, however she will speak to a colleague on Monday and come back to me.   The property is due to be relet on the 21st, we will ensure that the new tenants move in to a home that is immaculate and welcoming, trouble is its getting a tadge close to get the garden issues sorted in time.   I know that all this will get closure in the end, but at the moment I've had more fun with a toothpick-   Again, many thanks.

On a particularly good day I applied for a temporary job with an employment agency and my application is being processed. I've not been well since but have let the application continue just to see what happens.

 

The employment agency have asked for the details of the jobcentre I have been dealing with. I am claiming ESA, and initially claimed via the internet and by post (disability precludes using the telephone) and have never attended an office or building apart from an ATOS medical, so what are the jobcentre details that the employment agency are asking for?

 

Also, why do the employment agency want these details? Do they tell the DWP that you are registered with them and looking for work? I am very worried that if so the DWP will decide I am too well to be on ESA and reassess me or whatever with the intent of saying so. I know that I would be supported by my social worker and GP as to being too unwell to work because I have been unwell and under the crisis team but even so, can do without the stress so would tell the employment agency to cease my application and take me off their books if the DWP are informed of me being there.

 

I'd hoped I could stay on the books and then over time would be told what vacancies there were and I could assess whether I was well enough for any position and then if taking one would of course tell the DWP myself immediately. I am not sure why the employment agency want 'my jobcentre' details now when no job has been offered or taken though.

 

Thanks in advance.

There is no requirement for you to divulge the name of the Job Centre that you are using... and entirely your discretion as to to whether you divulge the information.

 

However, Clerks within any Recruitment Agency should be viewed on the same basis as postmen.... you submit an application for a job via an agency, and rely on the agency clerk to relay the information to the employer, and if any positive response ensues, for the clerk to get back to you and confirm the date and time of any interview.

 

It is entirely your discretion as to whether you wish to indulge any Clerk who presumes that they are "Recruitment Consultants".

Sometimes we receive forms from recruitment agencies that require confirmation of the time someone has spent on a particular benefit, admittedly it is usually JSA and if previous work history is required and someone declares a period of un-mployment.

I wonder why they are doing this with me, on ESA. Quite bizarre. I've emailed the employment agency asking them why they need the details, confirming that I have never attended a jobcentre and asking them not to contact the DWP and that I will do so once I have been offered and have accepted a job. I hope that they tell me therefore that they won't then contact the DWP. I am fragile atm and really don't need forms and assessments now.

 

Maybe it's unusual for them to take on someone who is on ESA and they are just treating me the same as the people on JSA, but it is different.

This is probably correct. Note also that there is no bar to seeking work while you are on ESA (it is called "Employment and Support Allowance", after all) and you won't be reassessed or have your benefit stopped just because you applied for a job. They want ESA claimants to look for suitable work.

 

The mere fact that you're trying to find a job won't be held against you unless you're applying for stuff that your incapacity would mean you couldn't do. So if you've told them you can't walk, for example, don't apply for a job as a firefighter. You get the idea.
