    • Does your claimant commitment state to update journal or job application section of your account to provide the evidence?   If not, then written or even verbal would suffice. If the commitment isn't tight enough to state where to put your evidence then there is nothing they can do.
    • The onus is on the claimant to claim correctly. 15p or £2 over the limit is still over the limit.   You mention an alowable expense, where does it state uniform is allowable, it's normally travel, care fee's or pension contributions. Normally uniform is provided by the employer, so the DWP tend to ignore this.   Yes she will get a letter regarding paying it back, but she is lucky she isn't facing a fraud case.
    • There are 2 photos from my evidence previous post [Docs 1 pdf 2.81 mb] First is the view I had approaching car park to the right, this differs enormously from google street view. Even with just 1 car in the carpark can you see any signs ? There is a small road sign in that photo too that was left behind following the roadworks and temporary traffic lights that hid the sign at the front. Second photo is a view from where I parked no wonder I did not see it, in fact the angle is worse viewing from drivers seat as the pole is in line with the tree
    • Pardon late reply, had a busy last few days. I will make enquiries to the Council or Valuations Agency tomorrow when they are open. I am a little apprehensive about getting the dentist involved although I wasn't warned about the new parking system at the time. I have photos but  will need to reduce the mb size of them as 4.5 mb is maximum upload on here. They will also need editing to blot out reg numbers etc. I was given 28 days from CE to cough up after the POPLA decision and that will expire in a few days time. I intend to take this all the way and to save further action [e.g. debt collectors with the £100 rocketing to the thick end of a Grand]   write to CE and tell them take me straight to Court as all letters will be ignored. 
    • Hi, i am not sure if this has been discussed before, i have a feeling it probably has. My partner has claimed carers allowance for looking after her uncle for the last 3 years. She has also quite often worked part time. She has always told me she was allowed to work 15 hours per week and she has always stuck to this limit.   However i have looked into it and found that the limit is how much you earn not how many hours you work. Her jobs have always been minimum wage so they have actually kept her just under the earnings limit. This is where i think this subject may have been discussed before, obviously in april 2019 the increase in NMW and the carers earnings limit increase resulted in someone working 15 hours at NMW being 15p over the limit.   My partner had no idea she was earning too much until a letter arrived a few weeks ago from the carers people. They suspended her claim and she had to fill a form in  detailing her working hours and earnings etc over a certain period. My partner sought advice from the CAB who said this would be overlooked as it was such a small amount (15p).   She received a letter on saturday saying she was not entitled to carers from april 2019 until sep 2019, (she stopped working in september and is not currently working). The letter does not say what they intend to do as she has already received her payments for this period. I have a feeling another letter may be on its way telling her to pay it back ?   Surely this can not be right ?   Another point to mention is that my partner had £2 per week took from her wages for her uniform, i put this down as an allowable expense but they have completely ignored this and not even mentioned it in the letter they sent out on saturday. As far as i was aware work uniform or equipment should be classed as an allowable expense, this in effect would take her below the carers earnings limit. Has anyone had a similar experience or can offer any advice ? I seriously cant believe they are doing this over 15p per week.   Thanks in advance Steve.

I will try and keep it very short,

 

Today I received via email a online civil money claim for work that my Limited company did last year it’s only for £200 but I will dispute this with the court as we have done nothing wrong - in fact we have gone beyond any other company to sort out the problem..

 

My question is the company who completed the work (my company) is limited with two directors but the court summons is in my personal name the business name says “Trading as” XYZ but it’s a Limited Company, our invoice states it’s a Limited Company and the two directors completed the work. Can I dispute this summons and ask the claimant to submit another summons with the correct name, and hopefully pay another fee,

 

I want to go to court as I feel the judge would laugh it out of court. Thanks

We laid a screed on a garage floor (house is two years old) the customer wanted to stop the dust when he walked on the garage floor, it was a dry floor, the garage is used to park a car in, and store garage stuff. We screed 2/3 per week and have both attended courses in this type of work and never in the past 9 years had any problems with this product.

 

The screed had very fine small pin holes when it was dry, so we said we would do it again for FREE no charge but on the second screed the pin holes were still there. We did some research and asked the customer to contact the builder and ask for a report on the concrete base as we felt it wasn’t a good mix (much to dry).

 

He wasn’t happy again after our second go so we did it again for FREE this time we filled in the holes with a wet concrete filler the laid another screed (3rd times now) but he still wasn’t happy as you could see the bubbles appearing when we were trying to fill them in, he was shown thus and could see the bubbles appear, so we offered to paint the floor to fit a carpet or vinyl all for FREE but he wanted a garage floor that was a mirror finish, we asked the developer some very basic questions that he was unable to answer, we had a report from the screed manufacture who said the screed was fine smooth and consistent in colour and the problem was with the sub floor.

 

All along I had told him this is the problem but as he didn’t get any response for the builder he decided it was our fault. I told him that the floor needs to be tested and to get an independent report on the sub floor but he wasn’t happy to pay for this, he asked us again to do the floor for the 4th time we said we would but NOT for FREE this time as we have done it twice for FREE, We had a report issued and have spoken to 3 concrete companies who have all said that you are unable to check the consistency but need to get two cores removed and checked for the correct mix, now he would like his money back.

Should've sealed the concrete floor first.

Anyhow, too late now, the only option is to use a resin finish but i would personally give the money back and forget about it.

Sounds like this customer will never be happy.

Pinholes in garage floor... who the hell is gonna look at that???

Thats the problem-it was sealed and primed before each screed. My report from the screed manufacturer states that the screed was bonded well with a consistent colour, the sub floor was an incorrect mix that caused the pin holes, returned twice and done it twice but still not happy. It’s now the principle it’s not the money it’s his attitude toward us a small company, he did try the developer but didn’t get any joy with them...

In my days i realised that there are some people that you can never please.

Considering that they want £200 and the fact that bad reviews nowadays can ruin a business, i would give the MF his pennies back and let him keep the free floor.

I bet he would never have it finished, he's only after free screed.
