    • In this type of managed block most of the owners/tenants have other places elsewhwere and only use them occasionally so the concierge service have keys to ensure the smooth running of the block. Now I would be tempted to fit an old fashioned lock as well as the swipe pass if you are there all fo the time (subject to any necessary permissions). after all, it is for your convenience, not theirs
    • No-one can represent you as far as the debt liability goes so the CAB might have given your creditors a sob strory but that is not a representation by you so means nothing as far as the SB clock goes. My mum could admit that I owe money to a creditor and offer to pay but there is no relationship between her and the creditor so whatever she said or did wouldnt chaneg that. Now bailiffs like to pile on the guilt in trying to get relative to cough up for debts that arent theirs but they dont get paid otherwise.
    • Well, if they're living and working then they wouldn't be taking any state benefits surely?  So I dont see any issue.   Of course, the universal wage for all would eradicate any ill feeling towards people, and this constant narrative that someone is taking something from someone.  That's my real issue with capitalism if we move on slightly - we're all on different levels of the pyramid and most people are constantly looking over their shoulder at what the person next to them has.  Tory's talk about labour indulging in the politics of envy, but it's actually the capitalist free market system they have created which fuels this hatred towards other people.  I think that capitalism promotes competition and as such envy plays a big role in every one of us because we're all competing with one another...  better house, better car, better this and that.   Ask yourself if you'd be worried about an immigrant taking what you perceive to be yours by rights if there wasn't a more level playing field and people were treated equally regardless of where they were born/skin colour/gender etc?  People can't seriously be happy living like this.. constantly mistrusting, looking over your shoulder, paranoid, angry...
    • Could be a conflict of interest but if a family owned co you are not likely to get anyone else. can be someone of the same level. in all my years involved in union activity I have never met a licensed union chairman so mehtinks that you would be better off seeking independent advice or speak to the current branch officers of the union that has recognition/representation . If the confusion shown in your posts is translated into the workplace grievance procedures you may well end up worse off than with a simple and coherent presentation of your case so get someone else to be with you, ideally someone with the authority to actually represent you or the managers will fiond it difficult to undershatnd what it is you want
    • The result of not attending is already known to you. They will continue and the no show will count against you and may be worthy of dismissal in itself As for handing in your notice- too late, they are not obliged to accept it when a disciplinary hearing  is in the offing.

Hi. We and our neighbor have a shared roof, also the roof it’s at an angle, he’s at the highest point, we are lower. Last year we had a leak, we called a roofer to check and he wanted to check neighbors loft, he didn’t agree. We fixed everything on our side, now we have a leak again, our roofer said it’s defiantly them, but again, they don’t want to let anyone up there.

 

What can we do? We contacted the council but both properties are freehold.

 

Thank you

He's got to let workers look at it.

I suggest as first step to check if he's got a mortgage from the land registry £3 record.

Most times you'll find the name of the bank with interests on the property in the record.

Contact them and let them know that the two properties will rot if not repaired.

You could also contact your home insurance and let them do the dirty work (if you have it).

Failing that, it's a matter of common sense.

I would personally get the workers to fix his part of the roof from the outside because water destroys things very quickly and a few pounds spent now will prevent a large expense later..

Unless we're talking about a non standard construction, the roof can be fixed from outside.

He can moan as much as he wants, once the roofer is up there, there's no much he can do.

They don’t have a mortgage, they said they lived there since the house was build, they are old.

 

Problem is that we need to pay for a scar folding witch is about £1000 , plus repairs... to go up the roof, witch we did last year, spend £2500 to do our roof and house inside cause In our bedroom the ceilling was damaged , we can’t spend that money again... and also when the roofer gone up there, their roof is full of mos and they need to clean it first or go from inside

 

We think they might have something to hide and they don’t want us to see.

 

Can we take them to court?

Taking them to court without evidence that their roof is affecting yours would be just a waste of money.

I would get a roofer to clear the moss in the area where the two roofs meet and check if any tiles are cracked, missing or broken.

You don't need scaffolding to do this if you live in a standard house downstairs /upstairs.

If you then find a problem you can claim your money back, however, i would be happy to spend a couple of hundred to keep my house dry.

As said, water destroys everything very quickly.

you will need the roof fixed regardless of whose bit is causing the damage. Get it sorted and sue the silly old buggers afterwards if you have evidence that it is all their doing.

No roof needs access from the inside many dont have an attic so there is no access.

Go to a different roofer as the one you have used so far clearly has his own agenda. use a trusted tradespersons site to find one, they have insurance to protect you from dodgy ones. There are several different web companies that run these schemes and I have found them to be equally reliable in their ratings systems.
