    • I got a text message from Royal Mail last Thursday to say they would be delivering a package to me that day. I was out with my wife all day, and got another message later that day to say the package had been delivered to me or a "neighbour". When we arrived home, no card had been left by RM, so my wife checked with all our neighbours to se who it had been left with. But it hadn't been left with any of them.   The text message also had a tracking number, and when I checked the RM tracking site it just said "The system is currently unable to confirm the status of your item with reference WJ915772456GB . Please try again later". 4 days later, it is still showing the same message. And to make matters worse, I have no idea who the package was from, but I am expecting several deliveries.   I have trawled RM's website looking for a number to ring to report this, but every option I select invariably just returns to the original page. CAn any of you suggest a number for me to call to report this? I live in the Belfast area.   Now, an aside to the original problem, I also got a text the same day from the RM number, to say "There is an item waiting to be confirmed by Michael" (ie me), which goes on to impy that I had won a prize in RM's annual Currys prize draw. It includes a website address to go to to claim the prize. Now I'm no dozer, as we say here, and I know its a [problem]. But is it possible the 2 incidents may be linked? The first to give the impression that there was a package for me, the second to imply the package is a prize which I have to visit a website to claim? Its the time of year when almost every household in the country is expecting some sort of package in the run up to Christmas, so would be a fairly easy [problem] to pull. I'm not even impressed by the use of my name an mobile number, as I'm bound to have had these stolen in a security breach at sometime or other.   If there is a genuine package, I know its highly likely that I'll never receive it now. But I need to know where its from so I can let the sender know asap.
    • they cant just change their mind as to what condition was breached, it has to be given on the screen ticket ad the NTK and match one of the conditions on the signage at the time.   If I employed you to cut my grass and you did a rubbish job of that and I decided to sue you for not watering the flowers I cant suddenly change my mind when I realise that is a loser and say that you didnt cut it in a nice stripy pattern when there was no such mention of that condition in the agreement.   GOGW is admissible to show that thier client doesnt really have a contractual claim for the sum at all. they will say they are being generous but the truth is they are abusing the courts to try and coerce you into paying money that isnt actually owed and they know it. half of what they ask for is unlawful under the terms of the POFA but they do like to try it on as it mitigates their costs of the actions they lose
    • so just follow the advice given in the other threads and if they are stupid enough to threaten court action you respond to that but nothing before that.   The barriers might have been removed due to a loack of planning permission so chack with the council. If they know nothing about any of it then enquiries to the land agnets/management co would be in order.
    • "Dear Simple simon" as Simon Renshaw Smith owns the company   drop the reference to your lawyer. if you had one he would be writing this letter dont ask for an explanation,  it only repeats what you say 2 lines later anyway
    • you ignore this begging letter. Also yu check with the council about planning permission, if you cnat find it on the planning portal you ask the council planning dept about any applicatiosn for that address. You cnat assume things but you can state that you do not belive they have the necessary contracts/permissions/consents because they have failed to provide them when requested under CPR 31.14 now there is a thing called Standard Disclosure for all civil proceedings (CPR 31.6) so they cant wriggle out of it so easily as that includes anything that adversely affects their case so if they wont produce their contract with the LL then you can say that you believe they have failed to do so because it aversely affects their case. they are then caught by the "when did you stop beating your wife" impossibility.   make sure that you have all documents you need to avoid them throwing it back at you but generally there wont be an equivalent if you arent the driver!

Hi all I'm new here and desperately seeking some advice. I've phone 3 local solicitors and not 1 has got back to me.

Anyway, I have received a letter from the jobcentre asking me to attend an interview under caution about my claim for income support and that they want to talk to me about a partner I live with. Now I only claim income support as I live in my own home which is a joint mortgage with my ex partner.

Now, I'm thinking this could be 1 of 2 things. Firstly I have a boyfriend who comes over and stays every now and then. He had his own place until November last year as he couldn't afford to live in a for bed house on his own so has moved to his sisters. His name is on no bills at his sisters address except his driving license and his car insurance.

 

Now the other thing I think it could be and am pretty sure it could be, is like I said I have a joint mortgage still with my ex and it's for the house I am currently living in. We sperated due to domestic violence. He was bailed to his parents address in 2015 (he didn't change his address over to there if I'm correct). Sometimes he paid the mortgage and I paid the bills and a few months I paid money into his account towards the mortgage. He tried to get me off mortgage and then tried buying me out so the bank only wanted him to pay the mortgage for xxxx amount of months and told me not to pay anything for mortgage. He met someone else in that time and moved in with her around Feb/march last year. We came to an agreement that I would stay in the house (we have a physically disabled daughter and the house is fully adapted to meet her needs) we agreed I would pay £400 a month towards mortgage into his account and the remaining £250 would be a maintenance payment but used to make up the rest of the mortgage payment.

We agreed it to be paid from his account as it's easier for it to come out as one lump payment each month and he sends me a screen shot each month.

The life insurance and home insurance are still in both our names for obvious reasons.

Any advice would be gratefully appreciated because at the moment I've got no where with any legal advice and the interview is on Tuesday morning.

Hello and welcome to CAG.

 

I've moved your thread to the main benefits section of the site because I think more people will see it. I've left you a link to follow from the HMRC forum.

 

We have people here who can advise on this, but I can't tell whether they will be on site during the weekend. If you don't get replies by tomorrow, I'll send a couple of SOSs for you.

 

From what I have seen here about IUCs, you can only go along and tell the truth. If you can back up what you say with documents, all the better. From what you've said in your first post, I can see it's a situation that can happen to someone.

 

My best, HB

On the surface, because of the inter bank transactions between you and your ex partner, it will appear to the DWP that you have a partner living there, especially if your ex has never changed the address with his bank.

It would help if your ex could provide a letter stating that he no longer resides there but obviously has a financial connection because of the mortgage. He should also change address with his bank/credit companies etc.

 

As long as you can show that your situation is genuine then you should be fine.

 

You dont need a solicitor but you can have somebody present at the IUC.

 

You should take along any information/statements etc to help you show your situation.

He changed his address on everything when he moved in with his new partner.

I know for a fact he will not help me out with this. I had him arrested for assaulting me. He will not help help me with this no way.

If hes already changed his address then he should be on the electoral roll at his current address which will be in your favour, i dont think thus us too much to be worried about, all easily explainable, even if he wont help you directly, the DWP can always write to him and ask him themselves.

How does OP, or fellow members, think the DWP found out about this ? A snitch maybe ?

 

If the facts are true then surely a simple compliance interview would have sufficed ?

Could be anything - data matching possibly? If it's an IUC then there has been an investigation and evidence gathered which suggests there may be a problem with the claim.

 

If you take along what evidence you have to support what you are saying. It's your chance to give your account.


Please do not ask me for advice via PM as I will not reply.

I've printed off all my bank statements from since we split up. I have a copy of the written agreement between my self and my ex which is also signed by a witness for each of us and I have all my paper bills with my details on.

Perfect..

 

Sometimes questions do need to be asked but there is an innocent explanation. Sounds as if you are one of those cases.

 

Good luck. Remember neither the investigator nor the equipment bite. If you don't know something, say rather than guess.

Might help if you have a friend that can come with you,

I've found a police letter and letter from solicitor after another incident. I'd rather go prepared than with nothing at all.

I went for the interview today and it was my ex as suspected. He'd been using my address with new employers while he was on bail in 2015.I showed all my evidence as and when necessary as his parents address where he was living wasn't on any of their searches but I had it on documents.

The interviewer was nice and I think he beleived me. Although he did say he was going to get intouch with my ex and ask him to go in. I told him good luck because he'll just chuck the letter in the bin. So lord knows where this will go.

I think that if youve shown that you have nothing to hide as you have done, then i suspect that should be the end of it as far as you are concerned, save as for a letter to confirm this from DWP.

They said they were going to call my ex in to speak to him. That concerns me as it was a violent relationship and this could potentially start things up again between us. Which I really do not want as my children were under social services on the child protection register when the last incident hsppened. Can I emphasise this to the interviewer or maybe should I try once again with a solicitor.

You dont need a solicitor, if you wish to emphasise your concerns then by all means do so to the interviewer but they will still attempt to contact your ex for clarification of what you have said.

I would also emphasise that he has a violent past with you and you would not wish to be named in any correspondence they have with him or referred to.

I have managed to get a letter confirming that my ex was not living with me which is what they are accusing me of. Shall I send this into them or wait to hear from them again?

Ring the investigator and ask them what they would like you to do with it.

My income support has now been stopped. Should I inform tax credits of this?
