    • The G7 hasn't gone to plan, has it?   Rather than showing the UK off as a potential global leader, Johnson has probably started a trade war with the EU and is being told that other nations don't trust him.
    • 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.

hi just had front rooms of my house passed to a1. as i live in the town center and there are plenty of shops,small village with about 30 shops parish council being a real pain and have had the below restrictions imposed which seem ridiculous as there are other shops selling the same as each other why should i be so restricted

any help pleas


Following your visit to County Hall earlier today, I have checked further into the outcome of the Committee Meeting yesterday and an additional condition was imposed by Members to be included within the Notice of Decision.


The additional condition will specify that the retail element will be limited to the wedding business only and no other retail use and can only occupy the front room and it will only be allowed to be run by the occupiers of No. 77.


Members felt that if any other retail use were to occupy the premises it could have a detrimental impact on adjacent properties and the area in general.


Kind Regards

Hi ddarren


Welcome to CAG


A 'wedding business', that's a bit restrictive, what business did you want to open?


There must be some sort of appeal process.


Your local Standards Committee (usually run by whichever local council collects your council tax) should consider your complaint.

part of councils letter


Concerns have been raised by the Town Council regarding delivery vehicles causing obstruction and

the implications that this form of use could have a detrimental impact on the residential amenities

for local residents.


The site is located within the heart of the town centre where many commercial premises do not have

the benefit of off street parking facilities, where staff, customers and deliveries rely on the use

of local parking provision within the town centre. This site is no different in this respect. The

juxtaposition of residential properties and commercial premises is a characteristic of the town

centre and is an aspect promoted at both national and local level. In fact, Policy 57 of the ERLP

promotes retail development where this will enhance the vitality and viability of town centres,

creating economic benefits in terms of employment and visitor spending. For the reasons stated

within this report, it is considered that the principle of partially converting the dwelling to

retail use would not harm the amenities of the neighbouring properties, its location within the

defined shopping area of the town is not inappropriate in terms of expected vehicle movements and

in this respect would not cause demonstrable harm to the amenities of the area.

The proposed use as a retail unit in this location reflects the general mix of residential and

commercial properties and in this respect, the form of use proposed is not considered to harm the

surrounding properties. Whilst the use as a retail unit could potentially generate more visitors to

the property, this would not be unusual in this town centre location where it is expected that

customers would use the public parking bays or car parks within the town centre and walk to the

property. The Highways Officer does not have any objections to the proposal from a highway safety

aspect providing the land to the rear of the dwelling is not used as additional parking. The

property is within the defined shopping area and as such a retail use would not conflict with the

planning policies for this area.

Sounds to me like Planning officer knows if you went to "appeal" you would get what you want.


You are allowed to sell associated goods such as balloons, cards, "hen night/ stag night" items.


I would insist on going to appeal. ... Your new business could bring more business to the baker (if they do wedding cakes).

Car hire, hotels etc.

I would do some serious research, see what else you could set up which is going to be different and draw people in and be profitable. What about displaying / selling local art, Paintings, pottery, etc
