    • Thanks DX.  I've ploughed through the pages and dug out what I feel are the relevant ones. Obviously, some of these are duplicates of what I've put up before.  Anyway, I would be hugely grateful if someone can look over and advise. Reading though other posts and on other cases that I've had help with from here, I don't think they have much of a case - given the weakness of much of their "evidence" - but obviously I would be grateful for some expert advice from the helpful souls on here.    Thank you.    B   Witness Oct19_redacted.pdf
    • You came here for advice, soem advice has been given adn you question the validity and source of that advice. We are all lay peopele, ie not giving professional advice but it is based on experience of the world and in some cases working in the field that advice is given on. Now you dont have to take our advice, we wont get the huff if you prefer to look elsewhere or do something else. when I asked what you think they would do with your NI number it is to prod you to think for yourself and question why they would ask for this when there is nothing legal they can do with the information so wouild you be wnating to give it to them knowing that they would want it to break the law if they processed it. Now you can take that up with the company at the top but TBH unless you want to spend money on a lawyer they will not answer the question or fob you off with some ridiculous answer anyway.   so for the moment read a lot about  RLP and similar situations to yours ans make particular note of what happened to the peopel in the end. You will find no threads theat ended by saying " thanks to you I gor sued by RLP and owe them a fortune". It isnt going to happen and the reasons why are explained in many threads. They rely on your feeling of guilt to get anywhere
    • you need to respond to their letter saying that you belive that you ahve been paid correctly ( or underpaid if you are due a small amount of accrued holiday pay etc) and demand that they show a full account of what you received, when and why and how they arrived at this figure. You then reconcile that with your P45 and use the figures to bat off any furhter demands if they still akke one. Come back if they dotn drop the matter and give us the full breakdown on hours worked, hourly rate, gross pay, tax paid  etc
    • @dx100ukI never got a response to my SAR from Octopus.   But I have just received a 'letter before court action' from one of their legal representatives, who have been "instructed to consider legal action against [me] if full payment, a settlement or your proposals to make suitable repayments arrangements are not received in the next 30 days."   I'm reading the threads now. Any advice on how to proceed? 
    • I would say let them do their worst, it will surely backfire on them. Now with restrictive contracts that stop you working fro competitors- these are notoriously vague so often not worth the paper they are written on. also they have to be fair so for example if there are only 2 companies in the UK that make a certain product your employer cant say you arent allowed to work for the other one. If you were for example trained as a hairdersser and you were going to open a salon in the next street to your ex employer then the restriction would apply if worded correctly. Dont panic about this, your new employer will be au fait with the situation and time spent worrying about a nastly letter will in their eyes take you eye off the ball so concentrate on the new job.

There are rent arrears from the previous address which I vacated 2007.. the problem is the amount the council say I owe, along with x husband, amounts to  £1799. I disagree and have told them as much. I believe the amount that is owed to be much less, as, at the time I was in the property, the rent that was paid fortnightly, was added onto the balance outstanding, and so the rent arrears were going up and not down. They have failed to get this sorted and I would like some advice on how to proceed further.. thanks in advance

Hi.

 

Have you asked them to tell you how they calculated the figure that they say you owe?

Hi

You say you vacated the property in 2007.

 

Was the Tenancy Agreement for the Council Property in Joint Names?

 

If the Tenancy Agreement was in Joint Names did you inform the Council Housing of you vacating the property in 2007 and to remove your Name from the Agreement and they responded? (note if rent arrears at the time they will not remove you from the tenancy agreement if in joint names as both are liable for the arrears)

 

Were you aware of the Rent Arrears at the time? (if so was a payment plan in place?)

 

You need to dispute this with the council housing by making a 'Formal Complaint' in writing and title it as such (they need to record formal complaints on there records)


You dispute the Rent Arrears for period XX/XX/XXXX to XX/XX/XXXX due to this I require the following:

 

1. Customer Care/Standards Policy (not the leaflet)
2. Rent arrears Policy covering period XX/XX/XXXX to XX/XX/XXXX (not the leaflet)
3. Copies of Rent Statements covering period XX/XX/XXXX to XX/XX/XXXX
4. Copy of the Signed Tenancy Agreement covering period XX/XX/XXXX to XX/XX/XXXX
