    • Update. The ASB team have categorically said they want to send a letter to the idiot saying... you are upsetting your neighbor, please come in to talk about this, we need to tell you we have no power to do anything about this though... WTAF?   They also said my only option to stop idiot parking and obstructing our kerb is to park our other car outside idiots property 🤔 because the car is now not obstructing enough to get a ticket and not breaking any law! Even though it's obviously being done to cause annoyance.   Just seems beyond belief!
    • Ok, quick update on this.  Mediation didn't happen - mainly because I missed the deadline for agreeing to the date - I didn't realise the deadline was quite so tight - and I had been away for the weekend and not reading my emails - anyway - although it was bad to not formally respond, it didn't really make too much difference because due to the lack of viable evidence provided by the claimant, mediation would have been pointless.   So I've been waiting to head what court date has been allocated to my case. However, instead I received a "General Directions or Order" letter.    Sorry - I meant to bring it in (to where I'm writing this).....but basically the gist of it was that the claimant had 14 days to respond providing evidence e.g. signed credit agreement etc. - and then I had 14 days after that to respond stating whether I accepted that evidence and whether I wanted to withdraw defence.    The letter was sent around the beginning of the month - therefore their 14 days are more or less up - I haven't heard anything - albeit, I need to factor in postage times - but surely this means my 14 days are not really 14 days....but more a case of the time left before the end of October and when or if I get anything from the court of the claimant with their evidence.   My question really is:    Is it a stupid question - but I cannot really do anything until I receive anything - at the moment, the court won't know what they've sent me (in response to my CCA request) - i.e. the poorly presented application form - meaningless statements - no clear signed credit agreement etc. - so this step is basically the court asking whether there is enough evidence in order to allocate a court date?   I'm assuming I should get a copy of whatever the claimant provides to the court?   Many thanks

    • I am hoping someone can offer me some advice concerning an issue with my former landlord, please. In short, I took possession of a property he was letting out just over ten years ago. Having viewed and been offered the letting, I accepted and paid the deposit plus the first month’s rent and moved in. Meanwhile, the landlord had gone on holiday and it was not until a week or so after I had moved in that I saw him again when he came around to see if we had settled in OK. I told him all was fine and took the opportunity to ask him where the parking space was located as there is only “pay per hour” on street parking outside and a commercial car park approaching half a mile away. He said there was no parking included with the accommodation. Yet the lease which we had each signed clearly stated that the property included the use of a parking space. He told me that this was an error on his part and that there was no parking space included with the property. Having already vacated my previous letting and paid the deposit and the rental advance and moved all my effects into the new letting – in addition to not wanting a major fallout with my new landlord (I also had a wife and three children to consider), I erred on the side of caution and did not press the matter.   However, the kids have all grown and flown and we have been obliged to downsize to a one bedroom apartment (with parking, happily). This was nearly three months ago and I have only yesteray received contact from my former landlord’s lawyer stating I still owe him (the landlord) money. I am waiting to learn the grounds for his claim and have requested a full breakdown of that alleged indebtedness from his lawyer but, having been very good tenants who always paid the rent on time and not only took great care of the old property but also did a lot of unpaid work improving it over the course of our ten year residence, I am quite annoyed to be treated so meanly. Regardless of whether or not it transpires that I do, unwittingly, owe this man money I am wondering whether or not I might have a counter claim against him for the false representation of his lease and perhaps even be compensated for the ten years I spent paying for on street parking as well as putting up with the daily (often hourly) inconvenience of that.   If someone could advise me, I would be very grateful.   Thank you.

Hi afteradvice1, I had a similar situation re the Divertion meeting with social worker. A few weeks after meeting the Procurator Fiscal wrote to me giving me a warning for the offence.

 

The letter says "if you accept this warning or if you are deemed to have accepted it, I shall not prosecute you for the offence.

 

The warning is not a conviction and shall not be recorded as one. Any alleged victim may be entitled to be notified of the disposal of the case against you.

 

Information about this warning will however be recorded on the Scottish Criminal History System and will remain on the system for two years. This will be used to help inform future police or prosecution decisions if you offend again and it will be disclosable under 'enhanced disclosure' in terms of Part V of the Police Act 1997 during this time."

 

My understanding (although might not be accurate) is that it may be disclosed in the 'Other relevant information' section of Enhanced Disclosures and PVG checks. From reading on the Disclosure Scotland site this info is included at the discretion of the Police Superintendent.

 

I know this might not be the same outcome for you but I thought I would share my experience.

Thanks peggysue, I'll quote excerpts from my letter.

 

" I am writing to let you know that the PF has now considered your case and is satisfied that no further proceedings are required. This in effect means that your case is finished and will not result in a conviction being recorded against you."

 

It appears we had different outcomes. I'm just unsure if this means there will be no hits on a check.

I've read up a bit about it and its just so unclear. I don't want to disclose I and put myself at a disadvantage if I don't have to.

Guess, I'll jus wait and see what happens.

Seems like your outcome is less severe than mine. Have you thought about contacting Disclosure Scotland or appropriate body or even the PF office for clarification, just to get a definitive answer?

I'm afraid so. I've tried contacting the department of social justice but my case worker is away on holiday. It didn't occur to me to contact DBS. Thanks, would do that.

 

I've made a small donation to the forum. Thanks you al for your help and I'll keep you updated.

Hello all, I'm here to update as promised.

 

Im so grateful to you all for the advice and support you gave me at what I consider the lowest point of my life.

 

As I posted last year,

I spoke to my Dr who placed me on antidepressants and I'm kicking myself for not getting help sooner.

I feel a lot better now and I'm beginning to forgive myself.

 

 

Went back to work in the financial sector last October.

I didn't disclose the diversion as I called the police information line and was told it would not come up in a crb check

Needless to say my check came back clean!

 

I renewed my work permit this year and that went fine as well.

 

And finally I requested a police report for immigration purpose and this came back with no live trace!

 

I am so grateful what happened was seen as our of character

and I will not have to live with the consequences forever.

 

I'm yet to hear from RLP but I honestly can't be a***d about them.

 

If there's anyone in this position reading my post,

don't hesitate to ask me questions,

I will definitely respond since I've walked in same shoes.

 

Thank you all once more!

Hi

Many thanks for coming back to let us know how things have turned out. I am so pleased for you that everything is working out. I will certainly link to your thread in the future if a similar situation happens to someone else.

 

You got the right help that was needed and the Scottish system should be copied elsewhere. Well done :-)

Who ever heard of someone getting a job at the Jobcentre? The unemployed are sent there as penance for their sins, not to help them find work!

That is fabulous news, so happy for you, and glad you are back on track. I'm still waiting to hear about my situation, no procurator fiscal letter and every day it's constantly on my mind. You outcome has given me hope as I have been terrified to apply for any jobs. As you say, really is the lowest point of your life! Thank you for the updste.
