    • 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.

I was recently part of a 6-a-side football team who played in a league run by Champion Soccer.


Before the start of the latest season of this league, I contacted them to withdraw my team from the league because we did not have enough players to carry on.


However, I have now received an invoice asking for £104 saying that we owe them a £25 registration fee and a £62 double match fee for not fulfilling a fixture.


Upon contacting them again to query this and explaining that I had not signed the registration form at the end of the previous season to keep the team going, I was told that another member of my team had signed the form and had in effect "registered the team". On the form, there is a section saying something along the lines of the following: "I accept full responsibility to fulfill my teams fixtures until are team is replaced by another"


Does this mean that the team is 100% committed to playing these fixtures and therefore, to pay the debt that Champion Soccer keep adding to?


Thanks for any responses

I've moved you into the legal forums.


Do you know who the signatory is and does he have the permission from the club to speak for them?

Cool, thanks.


I do know who's signature it is and as far as I know they did have permission from the rest of the team.


Key points that I have found out though, are;


Champion Soccer state that in order to withdraw from the league, a team needs to let them know before the fixtures for the upcoming season are released. The team missed the deadline for that, but after informing CS of our withdrawal, a revised list of fixtures was released, which did still include the team, but with some changes. So, does this clear us, because we did, in effect, withdraw before the final fixtures were released?


Also, CS are asking for a registration fee. As we have not paid it, does that not mean that our registration is incomplete, despite my team-mate having signed the form?


Thanks for your reply.

I can't find the T&Cs online, but I would imagine that signing the registration form makes you are liable for the registration fee (or, if the form was signed without authority from all the members, the person who signed it will be liable for all of the registration fees).


Presumably the form says something about what happens if you withdraw after the fixtures are released?


I'm not sure about the double match fee though. Their website (http://www.championsoccer.co.uk/index.php?target=news&task=onenews&id=215) indicates that this fee is only charged if you do not contact them. In this case you did contact them. There might be a single fee but it shouldn't be a double fee.

I would have thought double match fee was because they are effectively being charged for the pitch rental which normally would be split across both teams, it is therefore double as it would not be fair to make the other team pay for half the pitch fee for a game they turned up at but their opponents didn't?

Yes I can definitely see the logic of that, but the website says there is no double match fee if you contact them in advance to tell them you aren't coming.


The website says 'this is because WE WANT YOU TO CALL US, so that we can call your opposition and stop them having a wasted journey !!! ... Furthermore, if your team does turn up to find no opposition then your referees and coordinator will do all they can to set up a friendly for you '
