    • 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.  
    • Most guarantees are not transferable anyway to the new owner so why a solicitor should request it is pointless.The quotes should suffice to prove the work was carried out.   Andy
    • Apologies for the prolonged radio silence!   To cut a very long story short, I went back to Barclaycard (because I bought the car with my VISA card) and they offered to repair the car at a cost of £2500.   We accepted the offer because we were advised that even if we went to court and won the case, there was no guarantee that the dealer would give us our money back anyway or would end up paying us £10 a week for the next umpteen years.   The decision to have the car repaired was also made in the light of the fact that apart from the gearbox issue the rest of the car was in good nick. It is running fine after nearly 4 months now, so even if our friend gets a few more years out of it it will have been worth it.   Now that it is all settled I can reveal the name of the dealer - it was Thatcham Motor Company, in Thatcham, Berks. Very pleasant to deal with at first whilst everything was ok but boy oh boy, beware if anything goes wrong!   Similarly Momentum Warranties who provided the 6 months "warranty". On paper this warranty apparently covers practically every conceivable fault that the car might develop until you try to make a claim!   It seems that only if a component physically breaks that any cover is provided, otherwise they will hide behind the "fair wear and tear" get-out clause. Can an ECU unit be subject to wear and tear?   I would not touch either of these outfits again with the proverbial barge pole. Buyer beware!   One further thing I forgot to mention. We ran up considerable expenses trying to sort all the issues - the engineer's reports, travel costs etc.   Is it too late to try to claim these back from the dealer now? I just ran out of energy by the time Barclaycard agreed to pay for the repair but now the dust has settled I am up for it again!   Would this have to be done via the Small Claims Court?
    • no rush yet not due for 3 weeks as per andyorch's information above   i'm sure we'll get time before then.   dx  
    • There is a space for comment on the N180 where you can state that you wish to object to any request by the Claimant for an "on the papers" hearing. I wouldn't worry about the permits term, as the non-display of a permit is not the apparent cause for action against you. Have you sent them a CPR request for documentation?

Hello - I wonder if anyone can help?

 

I'm looking for a house to rent for me and my daughter - I'm on Income Support - but all of the properties I'm finding are stating 'no DSS'.

 

However, If I ask my (working full-time) ex-husband to make the application with the lettings agency - so his name is on the contract, his bank details etc - would that then be an issue when it came to making a new Income Support claim for the new property - my name not being on the contract - despite him being my daughter's father?

 

I have a feeling the answer is yes, but I can't see any other way around this?

 

Many thanks.

I think you'll opening another can of worms when you state you live alone for benefits etc and your x partner is the official tennant at the property.

Don't do it. If the DSS find out, and they will eventually, they will assume he is living with you and stop your money pending a full investigation.

Yep - that's what I thought *sigh*.

 

How on earth are you supposed to move then, if no landlords are accepting DSS anymore?!

Many landlords although they state no DSS are open to it. I walked in to an agency that has a blanket no DSS rule and talked about renting. The agent having talked to me asked me if I could provide a guarantor for the first 6 months rent, fortunately a friend was able to do this for me, after which I continued to rent from that agent without guarantor having proved I paid always on time etc.

 

Possibly your xh could be a guarantor for you? His name wouldn't be on the tenancy that way and no money changes hands (unless you don't pay your rent later!).

Thanks abc - I suggested that (via the agency) to the landlord - I *even* offered to pay 'rental insurance' (£150 a year) to cover him - the answer was still no.

I'm hoping that this was just a one off, but it's so frustrating as I've never missed a payment and am a perfect tenant - and this was an ideal house.

Are you on the social housing waiting list? If you are needing to move from where you are (ie been given notice to leave) and are unable to gain a new tenancy then the local authority have a duty to help you find housing if you have a child. Often they rent properties from property owners and then rent them out to tenants so you get the same tenancy agreement that you would get through an agency without needing to provide a deposit in advance etc. also it means the rent has to be below the LHA too which will help in the future. Definitely worth getting on their waiting list even if not imminently homeless.
