    • 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 all

New to the site so please be gentle! Lol

 

I have been suspended from work pending an investigation however parties involved in this process I feel are biased and partial to the explanation and subsequently are a source in my reasoning for my evidence I will give at meeting next!!!

My question is can I ask at the start of the meeting for the said individual to be removed from the meeting as I beleive them to have coheres in obtaining the information relating to the offence (if any) from let's say someone she is "over friendly" with and is the only source of complaint against me???

Not sure if I can give too much detail as process is in force now in the form of being called to evidential meeting next week!!!!!!

 

Please help job is important to my family and me

 

A worried and stressed

Phil

Ahead of the meeting, not at the start of any meeting should you object at someone being present. State the reason for objection, as being that you are concerned about confidentially and impartiality of the procedure with that person being present.

 

Take someone to the meeting to be your witness. Take your time to answer any questions. If they present any information you need to think about, ask for a break in the meeting to consider the information. This is so any answers you provide are not rushed and there cannot be any misunderstanding.

 

Generally these meetings are to gather information and to enable further stages. If there is any missing information, you feel is relevant, but needs to be obtained, state what information you believe is needed and insist on the meeting being adjourned so this information can be obtained.

 

Don't make any accusations about colleagues you cannot back up with evidence. If there are issues with colleagues, ask questions about issues and suggest that it is relevant to be looked into. To ensure fairness.

 

If you don't understand the disciplinary process, do ask for it to be explained at the start of any meeting and request a copy of the companies staff manual covering it, if this has not been provided. Sometimes department managers runnng the process don't always understand it themselves. If there is any doubt, ask for an HR manager to be involved.

We could do with some help from you.

i understand the process that it is only an evidential meeting but the points are as follows

 

 

I have carried out works for this particular client for some time and as far as I was concerned there was no issues with my work.

however a complaint has been received regarding EVERY job I have done for them dating back to april????

why was it not registered then?

 

 

I have now been placed on suspension by the office manager pending investigation.

I have now been called in for investigation meeting but have serious concerns as follows

 

 

I had a falling out over a work issue with the line manager some 4 weeks ago.

I work on average a 70hour week and have done for over the 2 year period I have been there but since the argument (loosely used) my hours have drastically reduced to barely a 40 hour week.

it has been commented on numerous other occasions by other member's of staff that the relationship between the line manager and the main complainant is very flirtasious bordering on unprofessional and all of a sudden I receive numerous complaints from this one client????

it has been admitted by the line manager that they do not like me dictating what I can and cant do when all I stated was the work load was to extensive for that one day.

the complainenet has also insighted that I have offered my services privately to which I have never done and if I was to offer my services to anyone why would I do it to the one client that I know has a special relationship with the office manager!!!!!!!!

 

 

my employer and this office manager are chairing the investigation meeting and feel that this is wholly biased and partial

70 hours a week??

 

You will end up in an early grave, do you have any family life??

 

Not being picky but that is unacceptable demands put on you by the employer.

 

What line of business is your employment??.

 

Most people will get the flags out if they could secure 40 hours pay a week

I'm a breakdown engineer and cover Glasgow to Kent and I'm situated in Birmingham I know the hours are excessive and I choose to do them but it is the nature of the job but it isn't the hours that are the issue its the way this has been carried out with total bias and constructed in a manner that the complaints have been born from one source who has a close relationship with the manager!!

Don't know how to proceed

If there have been problems for months, where is the evidence of any complaints about quality of work and you being given feedback by your manager. If you have not been given feedback about specific issues, then you would not have had the opportunity to address them. It is unfair many months later to be taken down a disciplinary process, when there has not been any previous negative feedback about performance.

 

Think your employer would struggle if this ended up at an employment tribunal if they could not evidence you being subject to performance management.
