    • You dont have to sign a contract, working for someone and agreeing to certain conditions create an implied contract. All matters that are the law of the land such as health and safety are part of that inplied contract so no employer can claim  otherwise. The contract was created by working there for more than a month. If they havent actually given her written terms or they arent available on the intranet as an alternative them they have broken the law and that give your wife a bit of leverage and a ci[ple of weeks pay when she drags them through the Employment Tribunal.   the wording you have just posted amkes her resignation correctly doen and they cant tell her to go earlier unless they want to pay her off. Wha she needs to do is remind them that her letter does fulfil her contractual obligations and she expects to leave on that date or be paid off for her notice period. she should let them know that she is willing to take the matter to an ET if necessary. They are currently not paying her, the govt is but they will have to pick up the tab for a month hence their desire to persuade her she is wrong
    • Hi,   the wording is as follows:   When a handbook wishes to hand in their resignation they follow the procedure set out in their contract. A typical length of notice is a month. The staff member must put in writing their resignation.   A little vague I appreciate.    
    • Thank you so much   I have just called the customer service line and was told that I can only 'change' the order within 7 days, I am not allowed to cancel.   I did think this was a bit odd.  So even with the loan agreement in place, I am entitled to cancel? I just want to make sure before I got back to them   Would it also be advisable to go to the store tomorrow with it in writing do you think?
    • a single default for a mobile contract should not cause you any issues. as long as thats the only thing bad with your file..........
    • this is a claims managemnt co and they will complicate things no end and you may have to pay them out of your own pocket if they are incompetent enough to screw things up. The simplest thing has already been suggested, you get 2 quites from builders and pass them on to BRS and ask them to tell you which of the builders you can expect to start work and when. Yu keep your involvement to making the builder a cup of tea until the job is done and them you get the work inspected befre you agree that it is of satisfactory quality and that the matter is now settled. If their builder doesnt do a good job them you tell them this and tell them that you WILL take legal action to put you back to your original position.

    • 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

Can anyone help please?

 

We moved into in a grade II listed building.

 

The listing describes the windows as "single glazed sliding sash windows in a wooden frame". However, the actual windows in the building are casement windows, top opening and bottom fixed, single glazed in a wooden frame.

 

The frames are rotten and we want to replace. We want to put in what the listing says should be there, i.e. single glazed wooden framed sliding sash windows.

 

Will we need to make an application for listed building consent, or can we argue that we are reinstating, as clearly sash windows were there originally when the building was first listed, and obviously were replaced "by others" before we arrived, and we are therefore are not changing what is recorded as being in place on the building?

 

We just want to get on and replace, before the really bad weather comes!

 

Any comments suggestions would be appreciated.

 

Thanks

From dealing with our local planing and listings people previously I would suggest that you phone them and have a chat, if you can arrange for them to come out and have a look and chat all the better, The best this with them is to understand their wants and needs from the early outset that way you can manage their expectations and your own. they will have a vision of what the house requires to keep in line with the listing and give you the best advise regarding the process. But i believe that you will need planning permission.

 

I would honestly say that you are optimistic if you think you will be getting new windows fitted and painted this winter, irrespective of the paperwork process I would guess that they will be made to order, learn to wrap up warm in the house.

Didn't really want to have them visit, as there are other items on the listing which are not in place, and we do not have the funds to reinstate all the other items on the building that are mentioned on the listing!

 

We have explained via email to the building control that we intend to reinstate, and they responded that we would need permissions, but my thought/hope is that as we are reinstating as per the listing, we are not replacing as described in the regs. We think that building control are seeking the fees for the application, when really there are no grounds for an application if we are reinstating?

 

Thanks

I don't think you'll get away without listed building consent. You would if you were just replacing the glass because that's a repair but not replacing the whole window, frame and all.

 

If you're worried about them noticing things on the listing which weren't there when you took over the property just tell them you've never seen it. They'll know you haven't been there long enough to have done anything.

General rule of thumb is, if its listed you will need permission.

 

Have you spoken to a window company, they have a lot of experience in taking this through planning so will be able to guide you and the planners through the process.

In my experience if you are replacing something in a listed building like for like, nobody would ever say anything.

Your windows are rotten and not compliant with the listing.

You should have just replaced them with compliant windows.

BC and Planning want you to apply (and pay) for anything, even to replace a door lock if you let them know.

Unfortunately you've already approached them, so you have very little chance to avoid their useless advice and fees.

I have had many arguments with planning and BC regarding non-listed properties and provided damning evidence that they were wrong, but they think they're gods and threaten the landlord and builders alike.

Sticking to our guns and letting them know that court proceedings didn't scare us, made them go away.

Your situation is a bit different because the previous owner has not complied with listing, so you have to keep them sweet.

If you think about it, the previous landlord was able to screw things up without being challenged.

If you don't make yourself a target they won't know that you exist, especially if you don't do anything wrong.

I did not divulge location or name when asking about permissions, as per previous post #3.

 

I will follow your suggestion, as that is what I originally thought too. Thanks for the response.

Regards
