    • It is the usual rubbish.   It is cunningly designed to frighten you because it uses some words designed to provoke an emotional response such as Bankruptcy, charging, Warrant etc.   If you read it carefully it can be summed up as follows:   1. You were wise enough not to engage with us before and we are a bit pissed about that.   2. Because we are pissed but can do nothing else we are trying to frighten you with all the things someone else COULD (but probably wouldn't) do with keywords. Only our client and his solicitor could if they had a case.   3. More keywords because we are still pissed you have not engaged with us.   4. We have advised our client (though we probably haven't) to refer to solicitors for legal action because 1). we have failed to scare or engage you and 2). we have no power to take legal action ourselves, only solicitors engaged by our clients could do that.   5. We want to help you (for which read we want to help ourselves) and please look at the list of other people who can help you because a). we may be legally obliged to refer you to third party help and b). some of those guys will advise you to engage with us rather than put us to strict proof.   This letter should be filed along with it's envelope.  No need to respond in any way or have any anxiety about this one.
    • you get the council involved then as the noise is nuisance. You will need to keep a diary but whislt you are on to the council you ask them to see if they cna inspect the property as you belive that the works being doen come under building control and possibly breaching the London Fire Acts ( or similar for most cities) hopefully tey will send someone round and then tell you if they are happy or not with what they have seen. That will help you decide how you want to play things
    • Right, FOI requests cant be made to non governmental organisations and the charges wont be ILLEGAL so your mortgage co will read what you have written in such a way as to think tht you dotn know what you are on about and then try and blather or stall things whilst still rokking yu for every penny they can. now commercial mortgage so terms will be vastly different to home purchase and fees are part and parcel fo that game as a court will decide that you knew waht you were letting yourself into. That means you have to come up with somehting more than just pouring out your feelings for us to be able to offer some solid advice   so, sight of morgtage terms, statements of account, why they have got solicitors involved ( arrears?) what was the original interest and was that variable and if so on what basis?   we need to knwo an awful lost abotu how things have got to where they are and we also need to see the numbers so we can at least try an spot anything obvious

    • This is a bit of a lengthy one but I’ll summerise best as possible.
       
      THIS IS HOW THE PHONECALL WENT 
       
      I was contacted by future comms by phone, they stated that they could beat any phone contract I have , (I am a limited company but just myself that needs a business phone and I am the only worker) 
      I told future comms my deal, £110 per month with a phone and a virtual landline, they confirmed that they could beat that, £90 per month with a phone , virtual landline  they also confirmed they would pay Vodafone (previous provider) the termination fee. As I am in business, naturally I was open to making a deal. So we proceeded. 
      Future comms then revealed that the contract would be with PLAN.COM and the airtime would be provided by 02, I instantly told them that this would break the deal as I have poor 02 signal in the house where I live as my partner is on 02 and constantly complaining about bad signal
      the salesman assured me he would send a signal booster box out with the phone so I would have perfect signal.
      so far so good.....
      i then explained this is the only mobile phone I use for business and pleasure, so therefore I didn’t want any disconnection time in the slightest between the switchover from Vodafone to 02
      the salesman then confirmed that the existing phone would only be disconnected once the new phone was switched on.
      so far so good....

Hi,

There is this Homeless Charity services (they give used clothes, toys for homeless people ) that we have been using for years because we are homeless, but because we were moved out 2 years ago from our own borough, the staff of that charity ( because of personal reasons) decided that we do not meet the criteria ( we must live in the borough ) and they want to stop us from using their services and are asking us not to come any more. Note that there is another person who was asked the same thing, but she lives in the borough...I don't know the reasons behind this, but this can be purely because they don't feel like it.

 

The question is I want to challenge them and I am wondering what can I do.

I wrote to the one who claim to be the director ( I looked on the company house she is not ) and she categorically said that we are not anymore entitled.

 

I am trying to write to the trustees to raise this, also to the council if this works.

 

Do I have any ground to challenge them, the Charity Commission does not look like they can do anything.

 

Can I still go, and if they ask me to leave, what would happen if I don't ? Do they have the right to use force or call the police ?

 

Do they have the right to turn people away ?

 

I need some advise and the best way to deal with this issue. I feel bad, because it is not right to be treated this way.

 

Thanks

 

PS. in their website they state that they help homeless in the borough, but it does not stipulate that you have to live in the borough to get the services.

I fyou go back and they tell you not to, they could call the police as you are trespassing on private property.

 

What do their terms state. If they state you must live in the area, and you dont, then sadly theres nothing you can do. Charities like this like to help local people.


Any advice i give is my own and is based solely on personal experience. If in any doubt about a situation , please contact a certified legal representative or debt counsellor..

If you are not homeless in the Borough (as implied by your OP) the Charity can decline to support you.

Most Charities are experiencing a cash flow crisis, poss due to loss of local Council grant.

Who is the Charity and what is your location?

I do not understand why they turned you away due to personal reasons, if you no longer reside within the borough that the Charity operates then they have the right to refuse you.

It seems to me that they have been more than accommodating in the past, but have now declined you not for personal reasons but because of budget constraints means that they must now solely concentrate on those residing within the borough.

 

I am a trustee of a Charity and our goal is for people within our locality.

 

I would suggest doing either an online search or go to Citizens Advice where you can be put in touch with a Charity in your Borough that you now reside in.
