    • I'm sorry but I don't have a lot of time at the moment. Please will you read around the other Hermes stories – if you haven't done so already. There are some suggested letters of claim in those. We don't have a template for this and I would suggest that you draft your own letter of claim and post it here before you send it. Also, make sure that you read around the forum about taking a small claim in the County Court and that you know all the steps. You can be certain that you will have to issue the papers. You can be certain that Hermes will ignore your letter of claim and they will only start taking you seriously once you have issue the court papers. This means that if you send the letter of claim giving them 14 days then on the fifteenth day you must issue the papers. Otherwise don't bother. Don't bluff. Be aware of your risk factors – which are that if you lose, then you won't get your money back and also you would have lost your claim fee – and if they push you to pay an allocation fee – which is quite likely – you will lose this as well. For the present claim fees and allocation fees, please have a look at the court services website. However you are probably looking at something in the region of about hundred pounds or so all told for a claim of this value. If you succeed then you will get your money back, plus interest plus your costs. We do our best to advise you here that you have to realise that the end of the day it is your risk. As I've already said, it is an extraordinary industry – because they will do it – which requires you to pay delivery fee and then if they don't carry out their side of the contract for some reason rather they don't have to offer any redress to you at all – often on the basis that you didn't ensure them against their own negligence. This is an extraordinary state of affairs. The whole industry does it this way and it seems to be a culture which has been accepted for a long time – maybe 30 or 40 years – so that now consumers think that that's the way it is. It's really quite surprising that this hasn't been directly addressed in legislation – but it hasn't. Instead you will have to fall back on the unfair terms provisions in the Consumer Rights Act. Post a draft of the letter of claim and we'll have a look at it later on
    • I agree. They are putting you back in the position you'd have been if they'd said what they should have ( "We can upgrade you to Sky Q. You'll need a new dish to use Q. If you want to revert to the non-Q system in future it'd need to be a 'hybrid' dish that supports both".)   I don't think you can realistically expect more.
    • but not related to this a/C  i bet the sar will reveal the real truth of what the balance really is made of.   even if this did result in a speculative DCA court claim. we don't lose many OD claims here.   dx  
    • yes they will and the contract if they request a further hearing.   .......................   n244 .......   i do not believe the claimant had a valid and paid for contract covering the year of the offence with the land owner or their agents.   i do believe the Claimant ANPR System had the relevant council planning permission to be used or erected on poles at the site.   i do not believe the Claimant signs at the site neither had the required council planning permission nor suitably conveyed the legal terms of any contract the driver at the time of parking could ever be able to agree to by reading them.   i claim the cost of my set aside fee from the claimant should i be successful.    
    • Hi   1. Have all seven residents complained officially to the Local Authority of the overgrown conifers and had a response in writing?   2. Were the Local Authority informed that the several residents were employing a contractor to cut back their conifer trees due to them being overgrown?   I would also suggest asking the contractor that carried out the work if they could do a letter for you explaining the work they carried out and the advice given about trimming as they remain the LA property.

    • Hi,  
      I was in Sainsbury’s today and did scan and shop.
      I arrived in after a busy day at work and immediately got distracted by the clothes.
       
      I put a few things in my trolley and then did a shop.
      I paid and was about to get into my car when the security guard stopped me and asked me to come back in.
       
      I did and they took me upstairs.
      I was mortified and said I forgot to scan the clothes and a conditioner, 5 items.
      I know its unacceptable but I was distracted and Initially hadn’t really planned to use scan and shop.
       
      No excuse.
      I offered to pay for the goods but the manager said it was too late.
      He looked at the CCTV and because I didn’t try to scan the items he was phoning the police.
       
      The cost of the items was about £40.
      I was crying at this point and told them I was a nurse, just coming from work and I could get struck off.
       
      They rang the police anyway and they came and issued me with a community resolution notice, which goes off my record in a year.
      I feel terrible. I have to declare this to my employer and NMC.
       
      They kept me in a room on my own with 4 staff and have banned me from all stores.
      The police said if I didn’t do the community order I would go to court and they would refer me to the PPS.
       
      I’m so stressed,
      can u appeal this or should I just accept it?
       
      Thanks for reading

I get paid universal credit tomorrow and today received a letter that £177 was deducted because it says I had £383 take-home pay. I work as a steward at a football ground and I have only received £40-80 off that in the month 7th April to 6th may stated on the letter it applies, (it said nothing about the work I do as I havnt declared itt) just can't see where they're getting £383 from, what can I do? Any advice appreciated

I work as a casual worker at the football match (no work at moment obviously)

 

 

in mid May I got a letter saying my take home pay was X amount and on the letter dated 8th may

it said I'm allowed to earn £111 then 0.65p off every pound is taken off after that (fair enough)

 

 

it was for the period of worked between 7th April and 8th may,

but I read the £111 allowance is no longer valid from April 2016 and so why did it not affect me then?

 

 

And this month if earned but not since the 15th may then the 20th may

(which I explained to them in the phone was to all be paid for bills)

 

 

so tomorrow when i get paid will it not be the £111 allowance that affects it?

 

 

I'm confused

 

Thanks in advance for help

Can you confirm which benefit you're referring to? It sounds like Housing Benefit (or perhaps Univeral Credit, I'm not sure of the rules there) but best to be sure.

Yea it's universal credit (the work is a steward job at the football ground, so it's not even 16 hours a month)

I gif my payment today which was £36 (because I work as a football steward in the season which ended May 8th for me, and I received £237 which £178 was to pay rent/Bills etc, and now Iv only £36 to last me month with no work with the football being finished till August) most of my payment was taken off me as a result, I have rent and interview for job coming up and £36 isn't going to last me till July 13th, my last payment from the football work was 22nd may (but as I said £178 of £237 of it was bills/rent) if I call up would I be able to get a loan? Also as I said my interview next week will be tough to support as a result. Any advice appreciated thanks
