    • 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.

Yellow Box Junctions are, in general terms, a good thing. They allow traffic from minor roads access to main roads in heavy traffic. The problem that we have had in London for some years, and coming soon to the rest of the country, is where the council uses them as ‘money boxes’ to raise revenue thru CCTV. One west London junction raised £2.7m a year, and there are many others

 

I would like an amendment to the "Traffic Signs Regulations and General Directions 2002" requiring councils to put up signs advising drivers of CCTV monitoring of yellow box junctions – if the aim of the yellow box junction is to ensure that drivers from the monor roads can access the main road they should have no objection to this.

This campaign asks for donations ? It might not be allowed.

 

Apparently donations are optional, so I will sign, because I think it is a good idea.

 

I would rather people donated to CAG :)

Sadly I shall not be supporting this.

 

Yellow Boxes are big enough to see and the way to avoid being caught and (Successfully prosecuted) are easy.

Do not enter them until a gap for your vehicle exists on the other side.

Why should being warned there is a CCTV watching the junction help?

 

This to me is more about helping people avoid enforcement than helping traffic flow and junction safety

 

And no, this is not on par with speed camera warning signs that are designed to make people aware the area has a high casualty rate and also to prevent rear end shunts as cars slow down for the camera.

But if you want to increase the legitimacy of the petition, please can you explain what a "monor road" is?

I shan’t be signing it for two reasons:

i I think the proposition is ludicrous, and analogous to saying there is no warning of a camera to catch me committing an offence I should be allowed to commit it

ii I am not convinced petitioning the Honourable Luke Donnellan MP, Minister for Roads and Road Safety (an Australian member of the Australian Parliament) would have any effect on the laws of England and Wales.

In England advise is a verb (a doing word) advise/advising/advised, advice is a noun. I might ask for advice or give advice.

 

The same with license (verb) license/licensing/licensed, but one would have a driving licence (noun).

Sadly I think that you are right, in your second point at least :-) Apologies to Robert Goodwill MP who is the UK Minister for Roads

I don't follow this.

 

If there is a sufficient space beyond the box, would not the vehicle with priority be expected to move, or continue moving, forward to occupy it? (Politeness apart!)

Otherwise it would be a 'free for all' within the box as vehicles having entered from differing directions compete for the limited available space just beyond it, or leaving the vehicle without priority still waiting.

I think that the law assumes the prohibition is for when traffic is stopped or stop/go. In legal terms the only way to avoid falling foul of the law, to my understanding, is to wait at the edge of the box until the lane ahead of you is clear plus your car length on the other side. How to be popular in rush hour traffic!

 

One yellow box junction in Redbridge brought in £317,930.30 since November 2013. I asked the council if they had considered traffic lights instead and they replied.....

 

"We have looked at installing signals at this junction however, it was found that it put unacceptable delays along the High Road" which is amusing to anybody who knows how slow traffic is there.

What is the difference between waiting at the edge of the box and waiting (unlawfully) in the middle, apart from you are 5 metres nearer your destination? Most motorists seem to have a frontal lobotomy when passing their driving test which removes any common sense or courtesy to others.

The difference is between waiting when traffic is stopped and waiting when traffic is flowing - the law does not descriminate between them so you are obliged to stop until the car ahead has cleared the junction with enough space beyond the line for your car as well..

The concept is exactly the same as a level crossing I'm sure you wait until there is space the other side rather than risk getting hit by several tons of locomotive at 100 mph whilst sitting in the middle of the crossing! Its a fairly simple concept if you approach a yellow box you do not enter until you are certain you will have enough space to clear the box....how hard is that?

Simple says it all. I bet you like zebra crossings, black and white and no other factors to worry about. Me - I prefer pelican crossings

 

Yes if someone is waiting to cross I stop, I don't need a light to force me to stop and I don't like stopping for a red light ten minutes after someone crossed just because they pushed the button.

Thanks to who ever deleted my last post. Not sure on your reasoning.

 

The signs are there to tell you there are speed cameras on the road, nothing about casualty rates! Car's don't actually slow down for the signs, they slow down for the cameras.

 

My point is, to make speed cameras completely hidden, so no one can see them, make them look like lamp posts so that no one will ever speed again. Make it the law for every car to have a black box. As soon as they're over, BAM! Ticket. The roads will be safe forever more.

They use Pelican crossings mainly in places of high pedestrian traffic. For example, a road near me pretty much became a car park for an hour in the morning due to the amount of school kids. Cars couldn't move. The idea of pelican crossings is to allow the pedestrians to accumulate before crossing to minimize the length of times cars have to stop.

Puffin crossings are much better

I don't mind them either, gives slower people a chance without being scared by flashing lights or a countdown. And I've heard of Toucan crossings but don't think that I've come accross one yet, but in principle I don't mind them either

toucan is the same as a pelican but used by cyclists and pedestrians, 2 can use it
