    • you ring you bank    
    • i suspect the charge on the Land registry site against the house reads:   2. (XX.XX.2007) RESTRICTION: No disposition of the registered estate is to be completed by registration without a certificate signed by the applicant or his conveyancer that written notice of the disposition was given to XX Council at P.O. Box XX, STREET, TOWN, POSTCODE, being the person with the benefit of a Charge under Section 22 of the Health and Social Services and Social Security Adjudications Act 1983.   ..............   that is a restriction k and is useless to the council, as all 'legally' your have to do is inform them AFTER the house has been sold . then it's too late money has gone.   dx
    • I have got a copy of the charge. The Land Registry responded to say that the document attached to the RX1 was as follows. The A4 document headed 'Health and Social Services and Social Security Adjudications Act 1983 and National Health Service and Community Care Act 1990' is a statutory charge. However as the person concerned (your late father) was one of joint proprietors of the property, the charge could not be registered or noted. Instead it was protected by registration of a restriction.   This is a statutory charge that has arisen under section 22 of the Health and Social Services and Social Security Adjudications Act 1983.   Unfortunately the Land Registry blog was discontinued on 30 June 2020 [I only found out today!] they're waiting for a new platform which could take a few weeks - so I haven't been able to obtain any other advice, other than what I found in the Hardwick and co website today which stated that S22 of HASSA had been repealed and stated that    After 1 April 2015 a Local Authority will only be able to recover unpaid care home fees by securing a judgment debt either in the County Court or the High Court (s69(1) of the Act). and The Act increases the time limit for the recovery of a debt comprising of unpaid care home fees from three years to six years from the date the sum becomes due   hence I thought that as the fees had not been paid and more than 3 years had elapsed that perhaps the charge was no longer extant?    If the restriction is such that the CS only has to notify the council [and there's no restriction on me selling] then I thought the sale could proceed while I continue to battle it out with the council. Who haven't been in touch now since 2016.   This is all very complicated - I'm sure it could be simplified!!   Thank you      
    • You've been here since 2013 so you must be aware that the tell people all the time to read our customer services guide and to record their calls. We try to remind people that if they don't record their calls then sooner or later they will regret it. I think if you do anything morning telephone you should have read our customer services guide first because then you would have the evidence you need to persuade people that you did take the action that you saved it. I suspect one of the problems it will be managing to establish that you let people know in advance. If there is a delivery which signed for that you may find that Amazon and also your bank may not be very happy about helping you out. Although the bank may activate the chargeback, they may later on after a further "investigation" for the money back from you. Suggest that you send Amazon an SAR.  
    • Thanks. Do I go to the bank and ask for this, or is this something I have to apply for outside the bank?

    • Hi,  
      I was in Sainsbury’s today and did scan and shop.
      I arrived in after a busy day at work and immediately got distracted by the clothes.
       
      I put a few things in my trolley and then did a shop.
      I paid and was about to get into my car when the security guard stopped me and asked me to come back in.
       
      I did and they took me upstairs.
      I was mortified and said I forgot to scan the clothes and a conditioner, 5 items.
      I know its unacceptable but I was distracted and Initially hadn’t really planned to use scan and shop.
       
      No excuse.
      I offered to pay for the goods but the manager said it was too late.
      He looked at the CCTV and because I didn’t try to scan the items he was phoning the police.
       
      The cost of the items was about £40.
      I was crying at this point and told them I was a nurse, just coming from work and I could get struck off.
       
      They rang the police anyway and they came and issued me with a community resolution notice, which goes off my record in a year.
      I feel terrible. I have to declare this to my employer and NMC.
       
      They kept me in a room on my own with 4 staff and have banned me from all stores.
      The police said if I didn’t do the community order I would go to court and they would refer me to the PPS.
       
      I’m so stressed,
      can u appeal this or should I just accept it?
       
      Thanks for reading

Hi all

 

Need some info on emergency etc

 

just got home and the house is freezing, we have two children one who is almost 2, and a new born who is less than 5 weeks old. we havent got a emergency contact number for our letting agent, so looks like we will have to go without heating tonight and hot water which to be honest the house is a old terraced house with a cellar and gets bad at night

 

people have said call our gas supplier however they aint going to be able to help as far as i know they dont cover our boiler. so any ideas?

 

if we have to wait till tomorrow should they get someone out same day due to childrens ages?

 

thanks

 

Steve

What make of boiler. is it a combi? If so has the pressure dropped?

worcester bosch 28i greenstar condensing boiler, the pressure is normal,

 

basically whats happening is we try and reset the boiler and it fires when the taps on or thermostat igniting, then a few seconds later the flame goes out and tries a couple more times to ignite but that drops off as well then it gives like loud sound when exhausting, like a bass/ echo sound(reminding me of a car bass box), then the boiler goes off and flashes reset.

 

not had a problem with it until now.

There is a condence trap with a clip on cap under the boiler left side. Get a bowl to catch water and debris remove to clip on cap, let it drain, refit the cap. try to start the boiler

dont really know any of the neighbours, in this street you keep yourself to yourself lol. ive had a look on the condence trap, but it says not to do it unless gas safe, and someone said dont empty as afterwards you have to put an amount of water in to block gases getting into the house

Is it below freezing where you are ?

 

Is it possible the condensation pipe outside has frozen ?

 

You could boil the kettle to nearly boiling (so it's hot)

And pour all over the plastic condensation pipe.

 

I've had this happen to my combi boiler last year when it was freezing. Froze and cut the boiler out just as you describe.

If you have a gas/electric oven, you will just have to use that to warm the property up a bit. It does sound like the boiler needs a bit of servicing, maybe a new pump. You are not likely to get this done until tomorrow at the earliest. British Gas offer a one-off fixing service for a fixed price, but not sure how quick they would be. Would your landlord pay for this ?

Right i will be frank with you.

The fact you have young children does not make you in anyway any form of priority. The fact you have a private landlord means you may be lucky if you get a Gas safe Engineer this side of valantines day. This of course depends on your landlord.

I used to work many years ago for a major contracting firm who held contracts with large councils and housing associations, the fact someone had small kids made no difference what so ever, we would tell them to use a heater, put the gas fire on, how did people cope years ago

 

I hope you get this fixed asap, but dont be surprised if you have to wait, you are quite simple not a priority (i know that sounds harsh but its true)

I made my post before the film was posted, based on what has been said. The film is inconclusive. It could be anything.

The logical action would be to call a gas safe engineer and get it checked - won't cost the earth and if it is something simple, it could be fixed on the spot. If not, then the landlord can arrange a gas saef engineer of his own tomorrow when he/she is notified.

 

And ask for an emergency contact number for future issues.

 

Oh...and don't fiddle with the boiler yourself unless it's for things that are meant to be fiddled with by the householder - there is a reason things connected to the gas need qualified engineers.

 

And kids are often hardier than people treat them these days (unless they have specific disabilities/needs); warm up one room, and let everyone sleep in the same room tonight. Your LL should effect a repair to hot water/heating in a reasonable period - and I'd say that is a day at best to get someone out to look, with the hopes that a repair will be complete within a week or so. If it was just heating, then marginally longer.

If I could be allowed a plug for another brilliant online forum (hope CAG don't mind, as it is not related to anything on CAG or other similar finance/debt/legal advice sites)

 

UK Plumbers Forums.

 

I have posted to that site before for general advice and you get Plumbers/Gas Safe Engineers who will give some great advice. They have similar rules to CAG about not touting for business and it is subject to effective moderation.

i appreciate everyones reply, my littlest aint been 100% well since she been born, just didnt want want her getting any worse. the fact of the matter thats annoyed me most is the no emergency contact i thought there would be one in the tenancy agreement.

 

by the renting/landlord laws does a emergency contact num have to be suppiled?

 

im resigned to tomorrow anyways i shall be outside the door of the agent before they even arrive, not being funny i pay good money for the house especially when i see nicer homes on homes under the hammer for less rent lmao. all i want is a home that is suitable, its always someone elses fault with my agent

little annoyed to be honest,

 

went to bed last night i turned all power off to the boiler and shut the gas off as didn't like the thought of anything running that was broken was cold lol, tried the boiler again this morning and still not working. so went to tell letting agents who said they would get somewhere out, which should be today. at 11:30 i tried the boiler again by resetting it now its working! i phoned letting agent to advise that its started working again, and they were like what have you done to get it working? erm reset it. and they then said are you sure you had gas! of course i am, and then they implied there was nothing wrong with my boiler after all, so i blatantly told them i wouldn't of had my kids sleeping in a cold house all night if there was nothing wrong with it!. so they cancelled the guy now, just hope it doesn't go off again
