    • Wow... made a complete hash of trying to reformat this after accidentally hitting post before I'd finished. Post above can be deleted if needed.     Then things started to become difficult     Obviously I'm not going to withdraw until I receive payment, so I completed N205A requesting Judgment on Admission and including their admission forms they sent to me. I was also mailed a copy of the companies accounts. I'm happy to upload these but I believe they are what is freely available over at Companies House.     Sent off the docs to CCMCC and expect to have the Judgment in the next few days. I'm not sure I fully accept they panicked and considered themselves out of time, because they replied to the claim a day before the forms were considered as Served by CCMCC. I think though, that rather than a discontinuance from my side on payment, to get a judgment may be beneficial to others in the future.   I'll update this as soon as I have payment or an update from the courts. I'd call this a win!
    • Hi    Just had a wee look at this and I think if you have not already done so you need to inform the following and keep a good paper trail as you are doing:   1. Police/ Action Fraud (get a Crime Ref Number). 2. Trading Standards. 3. FCA (as Damaras Ltd, Trading as Payza.com had there EMD Revoked by FCA on 12/07/2018) 3. Companies House (as they are looking at a Proprosal to Strike off MH PILLARS LTD   Companies House link - MH PILLARS LTD: https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/company/06243643   Damaras Limited has simply changed its name to Peridea Limited but it is still the exact same company number 8029472 and Address   FCA - Damaras Limited: https://register.fca.org.uk/ShPo_firmdetailsPage?id=001b000000m4IXPAA2   Companies House link - PERIDEA LIMITED: https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/company/08029472 (go to bottom of webpage and look at the previous company names)   PERIDEA LIMITED above I can find nothing in searching the FCA (so let the FCA know this is Damaras Limited as the FCA revoked there EMD) and if this new company is actually registered with them)    
    • So an update on this, seems the CCMCC did issue the claim form but didn't serve it because the address was missing on the form. After reviewing my N1 I didn't understand and it seems that the copy / paste from Companies House made the address a c/o address and CCMCC don't like serving to those. So I wrote an email to them which stated the following:   This was presented to a Judge who granted the request and the forms were served.   I then had correspondence from Loco2 Ltd   I did not initially respond to this as I was away with my partner at the time and as I don't get to see her often I keep all admin / gaming community matters to emergencies only. This possibly turned out to my advantage as I received this further response the following day:     I responded agreeing to settle out of court.
    • ok good let it run then.   I've sent you a PM with a secure email send me the scans of the complete CCA return please see if can get them up...   dx

    • 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....

    • The FSA has announced large fines against DB UK Bank Limited (trading as DB Mortgages) - DeutscheBank and also against Redstone for their unfair treatment of their customers.
      Please see the links below for summaries and full details from the FSA website.
      It is now completely clear that any arrears charges which exceed actual administrative costs are unfair and therefore unlawful.
      Furthemore, irresponsible lending practices are also unfair and unlawful.
      Additionally there are other unfair practices including unarranged counsellor visits - even if they have been attempted.
      You are entitled to refuse counsellor visits and not incur any charges.
      Any charges for counsellor visits must not seek to make profits. The cost of the visits must be passed on to you at cost price.
      We are hearing stories of people being charged for counsellor visits for which there is no evidence that they were even attempted.
      It is clear that some mortgage lenders are trying to cheat you out of your money.
      You should ascertain how much has been taken from you and claim it back. The chances of winning are better than 90%. It is highly likely that the lender will attempt to avoid court action and offer you back your money.
      However, you should ensure that you receive a proper rate of interest and this means that you should be seeking at least restitutionary damages - which would be much higher than the statutory 8%.
      Furthermore, you should assess whether the paying of demands for unlawful excessive charges has also out you further into arrears and if this has caused you further penalties in terms of extra interest or any other prejudice. This should be claimed as well.
      If excessive unlawful charges have resulted in your credit file being affected, then you should take this into account also when working out exactly what you want by way of remedy from the lender.
      You should consult others on these forums when considering any offer.
      You must not make any complaint through the Ombudsman. your time will be wasted, you will wait up to 2 yrs and there will be a minimal 8% award of interest and no account will be taken of any other damage you have suffered.
      You must make your complaint through the County Court for a rapid and effective remedy.

Good evening everyone!

 

Here I wanna share my experience with you and may be get some useful advice. Here is the text I sent to the Council via their internet site form:

 

I'd like to report you a regular and continuous shouting of my neighbour at night time. Every night after around 10 pm or 11 pm a very loud shouting of a woman comes through the wall from my neighbour's (the address is xx xxxx Road xx xxxx). Sometimes she shouts for no obvious reason, sometimes she shouts at her husband, sometimes she shouts while talking to someone over the phone, and sometimes she shouts at her little son, beating him up occasionally(I may provide you with an audio where you can clearly hear sounds of hitting, her shouting and his screaming). The woman is either mentally handicapped or she abuses alcohol. Whatever the reason, but her behaviour is obviously antisocial. She is a rowdy and inconsiderate neighbour. She just prevents me from sleeping. It is an absolute nuisance. I want you to make her stop or restrict the nuisance. Please inform her that she must not and have no right to shout or even speak in a raised voice at night when people try to have some rest after a working day. The woman is most likely unemployed and has no clue that people need to sleep at night. Now the shouting happens every single day after 10 pm or 11 pm and may last for hours. I can't bear it any more. This must be stopped.

 

 

In around a week's time I got the following response from them:

 

see the attached picture

 

What would you do next, if you were me? In my opinion it was a sheer runaround, a reply without substance. They just don't want to do their job, and I pay more than a hundred pounds of council tax every month. The only thing I asked of them is to let the neighbours know that it is not good to be loud at night. As the noise is not of intermittent nature, but a regular one.

What is the best thing to do next? Reply them and try to explain to them that it is not a normal noise, or move to another step and file a complaint about the Council?

You went wrong by putting in a lot of your own opinions and pushing them as fact. The council is right. They are very limited in what they can do now regarding nuisance neighbours, and if they were to do something, they would need weeks or months of evidence, and not just one or two nights a week random shouting or raised voices.

2 conjoined issues here and one is easier to get actionon than the other. Report the woman to the council safeguarding team and also report the person who responded to your letter for not reporting the matter themselves whilst you are at it. They are obliged to follow this up in a prescribed time but wont tell you waht their action is but do chase it up to make sure they have followed the prescribed path.

 

As for the noise, you keep a diary and note what the noise is and when. If after certain hours the threshold for waht is noisy changes so timings important as well as frequency. Borrow a decibel meter if you can, the couincil may well have some. If you want to buy one they are not expensive at the lower quality end but work as well as a snazzy one but dont have a data logging capability so pen and paper at the ready when you use it.

Well, but apart from my opinion were some facts, weren't they..? What i need from them is just send some letter to that address saying that it is not good to be very loud in the evening. Can the council do so? It is not a random shouting, it is a regular shouting or raised voices starting 10-11 pm.

The person who responded to my letter is the Director for Commissioning – Enforcement & Safety. Hell knows what it means.. Should I report him to the council safeguarding team for refusing to take any action? He didn't tell me what other options I have apart from going to court and doing everything by myself.

It is very strange that they didn't offer me to keep any diary.. They just don't want to do their job. I can just record the sounds coming from behind the wall every night at the same time – starting at 10-11 and ending around midnight or 1 pm. It is not from the neighbours above, above is only the roof, but it is a on the side. I don't know why they think that the noise comes from the neighbour from above.

I dont think you know how it works. They arent just going to come out guns blazing when all they have is opinion, conjecture and no evidence.

 

They are VERY restricted in what they can do to noisy neighbours.

Ok, I understand that. Are they restricted to come to my place at the time I specified and witness the noise? What prevents them from doing at least something? What prevents them from asking me to provide them with more evidence(log, diary, recordings)?

yes. They wont come until they have a catalogue of evidence. Otherwise theyd have thousands of people trying to get them to come.

 

Theyre not the police, theyre not any kind of enforcement. Each council has a set procedure for things like this. Ask for it and follow it. If the council doesnt follow their side, THEN you can start formal complaints.

Hi

 

What you actually want to request is there Policy which will contain there Procedures and ask for both:

 

Noise Policy &

 

Anti Social Behaviour Policy. (note noise cones under this as well)

 

Could you clarify if the neighbour is a Home Owner / Private Renting / Housing Association or Council Tenant etc?

Hi

 

I remember her husband once said that he was renting. But u can't trust such fellas. He is almost always at home, same as his nuts wifie and the kid. He may be a Council Tenant, but I just don't know.

 

What do you think if I put it this way:

 

Hi Mr XXX,

 

Please provide me with your current procedures on dealing with nuisance neighbours:

 

1) Noise Policy

 

&

 

2) Anti Social Behaviour Policy

you afre misunderstanding what peopel are saying to you. The point I said about reporting the woman to the council safeguarding team is to do with childrend services and nowt to do with noise or housing or enforcement and safety.

 

people suggest what o write so just copy the wrodring they have used in their response, it will ake more sense to the person receiving it.

my spelling mistakes are caused by me having multiple sclerosis and so I struggle to get my body to co-ordinate itself. Peopel do understand my "gibberish" becasue they bother to read it carefully and apply some thought to exactly waht is siad rather than just scanning over it and jumping to the wrong conclusion.

 

This doenst apply to just my words though, peopel HAVE writtenm out EXACTLY what you need to just copy out and you then paraphrase that as somehting that is totally different and carries no useful request. Look at what was written by STU and look at your version Stu says ask for a specific POLICY and you translate that to procedures with noisy neighbours where no council will have such things because there isnt a statutory regulation that applies should they decide to be jobsworthy over this ( and they will beacuse neighbour disputes are a legal nightmare).

Sorry for your condition bro..

It seems that I really misinterpreted STU's words. Most likely, that he didn't express his thoughts in a clear way!:becky:

 

Well, not I am really at a loss of what he wanted to say and what is wrong with my paraphrasing of his words.. :sad:

I've just done so. It looks like you suggested me asking them if they have those policies at all, am I correct?

If this is the case, my message should look as follows:

 

Hi Mr XXX,

 

Please tell me if you have any specific procedures on dealing with nuisance neighbours :

 

1) Do you have any Noise Policy that you have to follow in case you receive a complaint

 

&

 

2) Do you have any Anti Social Behaviour Policy that you are obliged to follow in case you receive a complaint

 

Regards,

 

Mr YYY

 

 

If I am wrong again, is there any chance you could rephrase your answer to clarify the meaning of it?

I would word it exactly the way stu007 did in his post, otherwise you're changing the meaning slightly. You want to see the policy for a) noise and b) antisocial behavour. [stu says the procedures will be within the policies.]

 

I would start it with Dear Sir rather than Hi.

agree, just copy what he has written then it will be clear to the council what you want and they wont be able to wriggle out of supplying the info because your wording doesnt use the exact terminology.
