    • I have got a copy of the charge. The Land Registry responded to say that the document attached to the RX1 was as follows. The A4 document headed 'Health and Social Services and Social Security Adjudications Act 1983 and National Health Service and Community Care Act 1990' is a statutory charge. However as the person concerned (your late father) was one of joint proprietors of the property, the charge could not be registered or noted. Instead it was protected by registration of a restriction.   This is a statutory charge that has arisen under section 22 of the Health and Social Services and Social Security Adjudications Act 1983.   Unfortunately the Land Registry blog was discontinued on 30 June 2020 [I only found out today!] they're waiting for a new platform which could take a few weeks - so I haven't been able to obtain any other advice, other than what I found in the Hardwick and co website today which stated that S22 of HASSA had been repealed and stated that    After 1 April 2015 a Local Authority will only be able to recover unpaid care home fees by securing a judgment debt either in the County Court or the High Court (s69(1) of the Act). and The Act increases the time limit for the recovery of a debt comprising of unpaid care home fees from three years to six years from the date the sum becomes due   hence I thought that as the fees had not been paid and more than 3 years had elapsed that perhaps the charge was no longer extant?    If the restriction is such that the CS only has to notify the council [and there's no restriction on me selling] then I thought the sale could proceed while I continue to battle it out with the council. Who haven't been in touch now since 2016.   This is all very complicated - I'm sure it could be simplified!!   Thank you      
    • You've been here since 2013 so you must be aware that the tell people all the time to read our customer services guide and to record their calls. We try to remind people that if they don't record their calls then sooner or later they will regret it. I think if you do anything morning telephone you should have read our customer services guide first because then you would have the evidence you need to persuade people that you did take the action that you saved it. I suspect one of the problems it will be managing to establish that you let people know in advance. If there is a delivery which signed for that you may find that Amazon and also your bank may not be very happy about helping you out. Although the bank may activate the chargeback, they may later on after a further "investigation" for the money back from you. Suggest that you send Amazon an SAR.  
    • Thanks. Do I go to the bank and ask for this, or is this something I have to apply for outside the bank?     
    • No, definitely not, I'm always very careful with stuff like that. To the point that I'm very surprised this has happened. Thanks for responding.
    • Seconded.  Just learn from the experience for the next time and make sure this is the last money you ever give these sharks.

    • 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

Work have asked me to go work at a different office but the train journey to it from my house is 1 hour 45 minutes as opposed to my current 45 minutes to my present office. Work assumed I was on a newer floating support contract but I'm on the older contract which states my normal place of work.

 

My Contract says:

 

Your normal place of work will be at the following address(es): My work address

 

You may, however, be required from time to time to work anywhere within the service area which is within a reasonable distance from your normal place of work. You may also be required to travel within the UK for the proper performance of your duties.

 

The company reserves the right to relocate you on a temporary basis anywhere in the North region within a reasonable distance from your normal place of work, where there is a justifiable business need to do so.

 

There will also be an additional £15 train fares daily incurred which I will get back as expenses but basically have to fork out £300 and wait to get it back at the end of the month.

 

What are my rights here, is it coùnsidered reasonable to ask me to travel that far, considering the difference? They want to move me permanently.

are they offering a home relocation package?

 

are they saying your position in the current location is redundant?


Never assume anyone on the internet is who they say they are. Only rely on advice from insured professionals you have paid for!

I'm sure with DWP they state that a 2 hour commute is suitable, I would think unless stated otherwise you will be expected to move office however reading your post fully they should only be able to do this on a temporary basis, you should maybe get in writing from them what they consider to be a temporary length (guessing should be 3 month's max)

Unless things have changed, the DWP expect claimants to look for work up to 90 minutes travel time each way.

Keyword here is 'reasonable' and that is not strictly defined as it depends on individual circumstances which may make it 'unreasonable' to undertake a lengthy commute

 

So, childcare commitments? Care for a relative? Ease of access to public transport? What impact would the change have on your day to day existence? Make your case from there and negotiate

 

As in Post 2, what is the employer offering by way of a relocation package were you to move home? What chance of a salary increase to take into account the additional time and inconvenience to home and family life?


Any advice given is done so on the assumption that recipients will also take professional advice where appropriate.

I stand corrected sorry for any confusion,

 

 

I think the information I had was via talking to someone else at the pip assesment, they had asked another claimant to go to Leeds I belive for assessment from Liverpool

So in theory I should have a case at 105 minutes travel. That's ensuring all trains are running in.time (Lol)

I was in this situation 10 years ago.

My contract wording were exactly the same as yours.

The union at the time advised me correctly to decline the offer because a new contract would need to be negotiated.

If they're shutting your current office they should offer redundancy, that's what I took at the time.

doesnt mean that it isnt redundancy if you CANT travel to the new location. Worth asking if you feel that this could be the end of your employment with the company
