    • Thank you so much for your replies.   Yes, I have text messages from the tenant acknowledging all the visits made by the professionals (handyman + double glazing maintenance person + 4 different plumbers)   4th plumber visited the property 4 different times and on three of those occasions found the boiler turned off. The tenant claimed she didn't know anything about it and said it must have been the other tenant who did that.    I have an email from the plumber detailing each visit and he's happy to be contacted by the solicitors if need be.    The tenant claims she didn't have hot water for 10 weeks but the plumber says the hot water was always working. His letter says, with the tank having a 210L water content, it was obvious that demand was greater than supply capacity.  The plumber is convinced that there's never been anything wrong with the hot water. His opinion was further verified after his discussion with the tenant's grandfather (who was present during his last visit) and being informed that the tenant had showered at his property the night before (spent roughly 20 minutes in the shower). Just to be able to say we've done something, the plumber replaced the two working standard stats with high level stats to allow the tank to regenerate quicker. He says this is not ideal as the high level stats will cause the tank to scale at a much quicker rate and will ultimately cause the tank to fail and need replacing as the scale can not be removed. He's done this just so the water heats quicker even after 20 minute showers.  (The tenant says this has solved the problem and that they have water left after they take a shower)   Both tenants are named on the agreement. I'll ask the Estate agent about the signed documents from the original guarantors but I'm certain that we have them. Everything was done according to books.   There's literally no mention of a Vacating Sharer in the agreement. It's a 12 month fixed term contract with both names on it. We're on month 6 now.   I really don't want to keep this tenant for another 6 months but the estate agent is saying that we have no choice but to accept the "vacating sharer" agreement even though "she will have a guarantor as her references do not meet criteria"   Do I have a right to object or is the estate agent telling the truth?   Thanks again!

Hi,

 

This is my first post. I'm in the Work Group for ESA and I've got to sign up with a Work Group provider. In Edinburgh there is A4e (who I've heard not good things about here), Igneous and Remploy.

 

Does anyone know if Igneous or Remploy are good/bad in Edinburgh? My health is improving slowly and I am keen to get back to work when I feel I can manage it.

 

Many Thanks.

Igneous and A4E from personal experience are not very good but not experienced anything with Remploy so i cant say for them personally

Same here. I'm currently on an Ingeus course and it's been total rubbish. Before that I was with A4e, which was grossly overcrowded and also total rubbish. I've also heard some bad things about Remploy but haven't been with them. Based on what I've read, Remploy might be the lesser of the 3 evils though - the other two definitely are awful.

 

(I'm in England, by the way, but I have no doubt Ingeus and A4e are the same wherever you are!) Hope you get somewhere decent.

Yeah, we hear complaints about all of the WP providers. I'd be surprised if one of them was significantly better than the others.

 

Of course you may get lucky and end up with a decent adviser and support, but that's not what most people here report.

Hi there people,

 

 

I have recently finished my work program with Ingeus and the job centre want to place me on another work program, but this time it’s Remploy.

 

Will Remploy try to persuade me to sign a data waiver?

I know that signing this waiver can be used against you, but wasn’t sure if reemploy was the same like Ingeus?

They all seem to be as bad as each other and equally useless

Have you used Remploy before?

None of them are any good, none of them care, none of them provide the support you need, all of them it is all about tick boxes and wasting peoples' time. Their main priority is to get payments for getting the client back in to work even if they are worse off. Anyone that thinks these people are there to help you need to wake up and smell the coffee

I have been with Remploy years ago, but my DWP advisor said they’re much better now and will help me with my ADHD, but the last time I was with Remploy, they only offered low skill, crappy dead end jobs!

When the job centre tells me they’ve changed and their better, I feel unconvinced.

Totally agree with you matt, they are all a waste of time. and all they care about is their bonus when you get yourself a job!
