    • sorry but that letter needs to be much much better. you need to express that it was a stilly youthful mistake trying to be the big man and jumping the turnstile to look big infront of your peers. TfL prosecutors are on the email address on their first letter. get the court form sent back to the court , (but copy it first) stating you plead guilty and wish to attend to address the judge in person face to face to show your genuine remorse for your stupid youthful exuberance.      
    • I thought I should send the begging letter to the prosecutor. Does the hearing means the time I need to send back by? If so, it’s June 5  I plan to send the new begging letter as following, can I ask for some suggestions? Dear Investigator/Prosecutor,  Thank you for your reply. I deeply regret my actions and the inconvenience they have caused.  I’m extremely remorseful for my crime. and regret it everyday. I often ask myself ‘’how can I do that thing just because I felt it is interesting. There are a lot of crimes in the world, but feeling it’s interesting is certainly not a reason to crime. I should not crime with any reason.’’ I think about these things every day, and I understand that I can’t blame anyone but myself.  I thanks to the staff who stopped me, as this is a valuable lesson in my life. I told myself that I should never ever repeat such a thing again, and never ever do anything which is possible to be in breach of any law. As a result, I carefully tap my oyster card every time before I enter the station now. I remind myself that I did a wrong thing before, and I should never let it happen again.  Although my monthly travel expenses do not warrant a season ticket, but I just renew my season ticket (please see the attachment). I understand that a crime cannot be truly compensated for, but purchasing a season ticket offers me a small measure of comfort, knowing that my actions caused a loss to the public interest.  I received an email which ask me to negotiate being class teacher in this summer (please see the attachment). I hope that I could teach the lovely students again, which may not be allowed with a criminal record. I would please ask that you would please provide me a single opportunity to settle all outstanding sums owed outside of court without the need for legal proceedings which would have a determinantal impact on my teaching career.  I sincerely apologise again for my crime. If you need anything further from me to help you please let me know.   Yours sincerely,
    • LoL Dx you crack me up. Thanks for the advice. I'll stay positive.
    • Utter Rubbish!! lowell dont write and beg for deals once they start court. as for your attitude, we'll thats nothing new for you.😎 you wont be quizzed, it's not like TV, simply refer to your defence/WS when answering anything the judge may ever ask. well it involves chickens. dx  
    • Thanks fk, I hope I don't have to face the court. Bless you for the reassurance.

    • Hello,

      On 15/1/24 booked appointment with Big Motoring World (BMW) to view a mini on 17/1/24 at 8pm at their Enfield dealership.  

      Car was dirty and test drive was two circuits of roundabout on entry to the showroom.  Was p/x my car and rushed by sales exec and a manager into buying the mini and a 3yr warranty that night, sale all wrapped up by 10pm.  They strongly advised me taking warranty out on car that age (2017) and confirmed it was honoured at over 500 UK registered garages.

      The next day, 18/1/24 noticed amber engine warning light on dashboard , immediately phoned BMW aftercare team to ask for it to be investigated asap at nearest garage to me. After 15 mins on hold was told only their 5 service centres across the UK can deal with car issues with earliest date for inspection in March ! Said I’m not happy with that given what sales team advised or driving car. Told an amber warning light only advisory so to drive with caution and call back when light goes red.

      I’m not happy to do this, drive the car or with the after care experience (a sign of further stresses to come) so want a refund and to return the car asap.

      Please can you advise what I need to do today to get this done. 
       

      Many thanks

    • We have finally managed to obtain the transcript of this case.

      The judge's reasoning is very useful and will certainly be helpful in any other cases relating to third-party rights where the customer has contracted with the courier company by using a broker.
      This is generally speaking the problem with using PackLink who are domiciled in Spain and very conveniently out of reach of the British justice system.

      Frankly I don't think that is any accident.

      One of the points that the judge made was that the customers contract with the broker specifically refers to the courier – and it is clear that the courier knows that they are acting for a third party. There is no need to name the third party. They just have to be recognisably part of a class of person – such as a sender or a recipient of the parcel.

      Please note that a recent case against UPS failed on exactly the same issue with the judge held that the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 did not apply.

      We will be getting that transcript very soon. We will look at it and we will understand how the judge made such catastrophic mistakes. It was a very poor judgement.
      We will be recommending that people do include this adverse judgement in their bundle so that when they go to county court the judge will see both sides and see the arguments against this adverse judgement.
      Also, we will be to demonstrate to the judge that we are fair-minded and that we don't mind bringing everything to the attention of the judge even if it is against our own interests.
      This is good ethical practice.

      It would be very nice if the parcel delivery companies – including EVRi – practised this kind of thing as well.

Hi,

 

 

I realise that this may not be the ideal forum for this question but given the excellent help that has been offered here to me previously I thought I would throw this one out there in case anyone can answer or could point me in the right direction.

 

 

My partner rents a property which has been managed (poorly) by an agent for a number of years and fallen into significant disrepair. We suspect that they have not upheld their end of the agreement by performing routine inspections as they have never raised a query with us and there are issues such as a broken window, ripped off door frame, sockets hanging from walls etc. Additionally she was billed for a gas safety certificate which was never carried out.

 

 

She cannot locate her original contract :(

 

 

After the shocking lack of diligence on their part we have elected to not have them manage the property going forward, though we did allow them to locate a tenant since they already had one in line on a finders only arrangement.

 

 

We have requested the following, with their response to a detailed email consisting only of the in-line replies in caps below.

 

 

- Statements (PLEASE ADVISE WHICH PERIODS YOU REQUIRE)

- Gas certificate or company used in January (I WILL LOOK INTO THIS)

- Copy of your assessment & inspections from the departing tenant (WE HAVE NO POLICY OF SUPPLYING THIS INFORMATION WE HAVE PROPOSED A FULL RETENSION OF THE BOND AND WILL UPDATE YOU WHEN APPROPRIATE)

- Copy of your proposed statement to DPS regarding the bond (WE HAVE NO POLICY OF SUPPLYING THIS INFORMATION WE HAVE PROPOSED A FULL RETENSION OF THE BOND AND WILL UPDATE YOU WHEN APPROPRIATE)

- Confirmation of the keys you hold & when I should receive these (AS WE WERE AWARE YOU WERE IN POSSESSION OF A SET OF KEYS ALL REMAINING KEYS WERE PASSED TO THE NEW TENANTS)

- A copy of the new tenancy (A COPY OF THE TENANCY WILL BE SENT OVER WITH 2/3 WORKING DAYS)

 

 

Does anyone have any experience of dealing with managing agents?

 

 

We'd like to know please initially;

 

  • What legislation they must adhere to as an agent?
  • If they have a legal right to withhold the documents we have requested?
  • Are they able to sign a tenancy on behalf of the landlord for a finders-only arrangement?
  • Are they legally obliged to retain a copy of the original contract and supply one when requested?
  • Is there a data access request, similar to a SAR, which would be applicable in this scenario?

 

 

We feel that they have charged the managing fee and performed none of their duties as a managing agent and propose to take action against them via small claims and need to evidence this claim as effectively as possible.

 

 

Thanks Everyone!

I guess from the lack of responses that this isn't anyone's area of expertise, no problem at all i knew this wasn't necessarily the right place but the landlords forums aren't all that helpful.

 

For anyone who is interested, we're going to send them a SAR and request things which are typically not covered by a SAR and see what they come back with as I doubt they will have received one before given they're a fledgling agent so they might just give us everything we've requested

 

Thanks!

have they let the new tenants in without you signing the tenancy? They dont have the authority, just to find a tenant.

Speak to ARLA about then agents and see if they are members. If not you may have to try seraching ther details of teh TDS legislation and as YOU are responsible for the deposit they cannot avoid telling you about the bond as you can place the money into a client account of your own if you wish. Telling them that you are going to do so (be serious about being a landlord) and take control of your investment.
