    • Ok will do. I have a copy of the letters dated 12/02/2011 giving me 14 days to defer and then another letter dated 22/03/11 confirming deferment that I attached to my statement.
    • I'm afraid that you can't generally trust the good reviews. They may be genuine but you never know. You can certainly trust the bad ones far more – although of course some people may simply have a grudge. He said that the owners name is Rick. Is there is only name or doesn't have a surname? I'm not entirely sure what you are saying about the cost of remedying all the defects and completing the project to a satisfactory standard. Please can you clarify. I understand that you have got to quotes which detail the condition of the job now, the work needed to complete it and the cost. Is this correct? Do you know where this man Rick lives?   Painter And Decorator Lincoln | Decor Developments | England WWW.DECOR-DEVELOPMENTS.CO.UK Professional internal & External painters & Decorators.

    • Wait until DX pops in and he can clarify why its statute barred....although I agree with the above claimant's stance that it cant be although I assume they stating you didn't defer is a myth as you maintain your last deferment was dated Feb 2011.
    • Hi I'm new to the group and it was recommended by a Solicitor to see if anyone else has had a similar experience with United Utilities.  Its a long read and I apologise for this up front.   Issue 1 - United Utilities visited my property to investigate a leaking pipe on my development land within our title deeds of our house and replaced the section of pipe (approx 1 tonne).  The asbestos cement pipe was then broken up and buried on our property rather than them paying for hazardous waste disposal.   This happened in June last year and since then after bringing it to their attention they have returned and carried out remedial works which have inflamed the problem by carrying out the work badly again.  The environmental health are now carrying out an investigation and we are hoping it will be cleaned under the 'polluter pays' principal.  We currently have a Solicitor and will be taking action for breach of duty of care, significant delays and our costs re civil engineers, etc.  They have confirmed in writing that they breached their duty of care and have apologised and offered a settlement of £3000 in recognition of this.  This does not cover our solicitor costs, or civil engineer costs, etc and we are looking for recognition in compensation of their actions and the fact that they will now no longer reply to our correspondence.  Has anyone else suffered similar experiences with UU or have any idea of what we should be asking for from them?   Issue 2 - When we built our property in 1997 we were given a plan of the land showing the pipes by UU and built our house in accordance with this and their requirements regarding the distance we needed to be away from the pipes.  When we applied for planning permission for the rest of the properties on our land in 2005 we were then given a plan by UU showing the same position of the pipes but this now had a disclaimer on stating this may not be the exact position of the pipes leading to much discussion.  After receiving no help from UU to locate the pipes we employed civil engineers in May 2020 and located the pipes, they were 20 metres away from the position shown on the plan and 2 metres deeper than thought (5 metres deep).   The pipes have now been found to run under our garden which we believe will have a detremental effect on the value of our property.  This was queried with UU who advised that in 1997 they probably did not put the disclaimer on the plans but they stick by their disclaimer and are basically not open to discussion on the matter.   Does anyone know if we would have a claim under 'Estoppel' (or anything else?)   Issue 3 - Regarding the above, until October 2020 UU have always claimed that they have an easement over our property for maintenance of the pipes, however, they then confirmed that they did NOT but had full rights under the Water Authority Act 1990.  I would like to know if anyone knows if this act applies to both public and commercial pipes?  The pipes are to supply raw water from the local river to 2 factories and commercially provide an income to UU.  I have spoken to a Solicitor today who believes they may not have rights as this is not a public water supply and the Environment Health officer is also of the same opinion but after trawling the internet I have been unable to find out.   Does anyone know the answer to this?   Issue 4 - I have been diagnosed with Globus Pharyngeus (feeling of a lump in the throat) which I have had for more than 12 months now and the ENT specialist has advised it has been caused by stress of the ongoing stress we are encountering with UU.   This is not covered under my legal expenses cover and after contacting many solicitors they have advised that they would not take this on as Globus can be caused by other influences.  Noone has reviewed the situation we have had for the last 17 months, consisting of emails, discussions with local MP, EA, HSE, Solicitors, site meetings with contractors and UU and overseeing works and I'm sure if they did they would see why I am currently suffering from stress.   Does anyone have any experience of this ?   We currently have legal representation provided through our household insurance  and have a property claim against UU for issue 1, however, they are not willing to discuss the other issues, do you think it would be worth referring to other solicitors (and paying from our own funds) who would deal with all the issues in one (we personally think this is the best option) as if we have to issue lots of separate claims it would not be beneficial.   We really just want to bring them to task over the issues because I think as we are the 'little man' fighting the 'big company' we will go away, but I want them to realise they cannot do this to people.  In addition I also want to look after the little tradesman who lives down the road and ends up with his name in the press and a huge fine for burying asbestos!!   I would welcome any comments   Thank you
    • Yes... I paid by bank transfer. And I know... it was a BIG MISTAKE I made. https://www.decor-developments.co.uk/ This is the website of the company, with their address phone number, email, etc. And here are the reviews the company has in different sites, with the photo of the director, Rick. https://www.checkatrade.com/trades/DecorDevelopments/reviews?page=1 https://www.ratedpeople.com/profile/decor-developments Oddly, those are generally very good reviews, with only a few bad ones, I guess Im one of those unlucky ones. One of the photo shows the car plate of the company, which is YB57GPO I have Rick's mobile phone number. I believe the quotes I have now, are from people independent of each other, because one of them is from Nottingham, and he has had the company for years (found on https://trustedtraders.which.co.uk/), the other one is a self-employed worker based in Lincoln. (found on https://www.checkatrade.com/) The new quotes I have from the first trusted trader, just to repaint the problematic walls would be £2900 plus VAT (I found out the ceilings paint issue just yesterday, and he promised to send me a new quote with the painting of the ceilings. He said he cant do plastering so he cant give me a quote for the fixing of the ceiling at the extension.) The second trusted trader, sent me the quote to fix all the painting problems at the ceilings and walls, and fixing the extension ceiling as well. which would be £4680 including SIC. (but this does not include the costs of the paint, he said he will have to buy them and show me the receipt for me to pay). The reason for the new one to be more expensive is that, the carpets are now fitted, and a few furniture has moved in now (I just moved in few days ago), protections need to be done. Which back in August, when Decor Development came to work on my house, the house was empty without carpets and it wouldve been a lot easier. I do believe that if I implement one of those quotes that the whole job will be put right in the way that I expected when I first entered into the contract to Decor Development. The current state is simply terrible. No proper sanding anywhere, no proper caulking at the wood works or anywhere else, no metal corners for the ceilings, no primers applied, nothing. The second trader even mentioned that, "you just need to show the photos before and after I did the work, you will see the differences and likely win the case." But thats just what he said, though. The second trader already mentioned in the quote what paint would he be using exactly (Vinyl mat from Johnstone's). In which I asked the first trusted trader about this paint, and he texted me and said this paint is OK.

TJ, the reason I used the term 'very vulnerable' is because I have huge empathy for those who are having lived with someone going through chemo  and little patience with the vast majority who declared themselves exempt from mask wearing.  They are the very people who could wear a mask but chose not to because they liked the idea of being special and above the rules.  There is a large crossover of those who would label themselves vulnerable when it suits them and do nothing to protect others while expecting others to protect them.

as pics aren't allowed anymore and probably nobody would open a pdf making the effort pointless

 

Neither person wearing a mask = 90% risk of transmission

Just None infected person wearing a mask = 30% risk of transmission

 

Just infected person wearing mask = 5% risk of transmission

- 6 times LESS likely to transmit than just the 'others wearing masks

 

Both/all wearing masks = 1.5% risk of transmission

- 12 times LESS likely for transmission of the virus than just 'others wearing masks

 

 

ah redundant - HB found it

I think no-one should be exempt, and those who simply chose NOT to wear masks indoors in busy places are worse whether the law 'allows it' or not.

 

As bad or worse than someone driving through a supermarket car park on a video call on their phone.

At least the potential car victims can see and hear the car coming and actually have a chance of jumping out of the way - a covid victim is blindsided and likely to take it home to infect their loved ones

- all for want of wearing a mask while in a supermarket or bus.

As far as I can see the majority still are - and I'm just back in from a supermarket trip.

 

Where I've got incredibly frustrated is the kneejerk reaction to the announcement it would no longer be compulsory as if we would go from hero to zero in one quick jump.  The situation whenever I was out and about was that around 15% never did, another 30% or so had them pulled down so didn't cover both nose and mouth.  Those are the people who will give them up completely.  You may say it was better than nothing and maybe so but in reality the change is not as great as it seems.  There never was 100% compliance.

 

Things are also different now in that many of us are vaccinated and even the not so good vaccines do seem to offer worthwhile protection.

kneejerk reaction? - you talking about johnson removing the need for masks I assume, and the 'kneejerk reaction of an increase in not wearing masks?

 

I'm seeing, and seen, nothing like those figures you state although I realise that the situation differs around the country and even from town to town. Much better compliance - until now

 

 

All this is moot as the simple, most effective way to reduce transmission *even better than jabs* is if everyone wears masks indoors in busy places

Jabs would seem to only roughly half the transmission rate ... and not that with certain vaccine/strain mixes,

see the graphic for mask wearing

 

The ONLY 'justification' I can see to drop mask wearing - is to INCREASE coronavirus transmission.

and I see no credible reason to think that is a useful outcome, let alone the lack of any apparent management of or preparation for that outcome.

let alone the risk of mutating a number of really bad strains or even 'the big one' out of that policy.

 

If it was gaining time to ramp up mitigations and NHS preparedness ...  .. but thats already been thrown away repeatedly

"Border Force was instructed to stop checking the Covid status of passengers from green or amber-list nations on 19 July, when most lockdown restrictions were lifted in England. This means there is also no official check on whether these travellers have booked Covid tests or filled in passenger locator forms to say where in the UK they will isolate if necessary"

 

red list? Why would anyone travel to the UK from a red list country when there are so many others to route through

We utterly deplore this reckless vaccine rollout to children

 

Found this on Twitter, Thoughts folks?   We can follow the need to vaccinate adults,  and the rollout seems to be bearing fruit, but maybe children who may be more at risk from the vaccine is a step too far?

We could do with some help from you.

only a brief view so far but certainly seems a con-wom

 

Mix and match stats to suit

adverse reactions to a tiny % of adults presented to imply/infer/link that its referring to kids,

none of the recent study stuff which despite being VERY conservative and risk averse (in the real meaning) still show that Infections and spread in children and young adults is increasing immensely with new variants

 

* long covid is still a significant issue even in the very conservative and limited studies

 

I understand the conservative stances when dealing with kids, but the latest stats and info needs to be used, not miss-presenting out of date stuff that was never really 'in date'

note there are no links to real studies.reports to support the rhetoric - its just an opinion piece, and a bad opinion IMO

 

Its the same sort of stuff Connif does - report false stats with circular support from other niche nuts if anything at all

I think it was the Washington Post that said earlier that a lot of the studies on covid effects and vaccination on the under 18s are from the UK and being read worldwide. So no excuse for a UK based organisation not to read them.

 

ETA: Has anyone spoken to people who don't want to be vaccinated? A friend of ours who's a doctor has had to stop talking to her grandchildren about it because they only want to believe what they read on social media, stuff like Bill Gates wanting to track them or being turned magnetic.

 

I spoke to a friend who's 30-ish and she thinks it will stop her having children if she's vaxxed.

Israel is one of a number of 'more reliable' sources IMO - too much political interference with the UK reports (IMCCO)

 

note a number of US and other journals are qualifying 'differing reports'/implying 'take with a pinch of salt' with some of their UK stats/claims reporting

Some gently/some more clearly

Interesting. I haven't seen anything on that. This lady did say that there isn't enough information, but then there's also the concern that pregnant ladies who catch covid can be very ill and it can affect the babies.

Its problematic as no long term data, and Phase 3 trials are on until 2023, so no concrete data on anything as yet realistically.

??

Expand please

 

there are hundreds of millions of people vaccinated, many millions of which were pregnant

That the vaccines are as yet emergency approval largely due to very proper procedures and processes doesn't dent the real world data?

 

That there are no long term results from the 'new' mrna vaccines is true, although the technology itself is not new, it is new to application although is one of the longest used and more closely monitored of them all

 

There are years and years of data on adenovirus vaccines - including some known barriers re the body fighting the 'carrier' we have yet to hit

 

That they all carry some risks is unquestionable, as there is with absolutely everything including eating one heinz bean.

yes it does - openly/transparently and honestly

but IMO there is enough data to declare minimal risk for the gains

Just occurred to me

that the UK granted emergency approval to the O/AZ vaccine apparently based on VERY few results (was it about 80?) and those quite clearly open to question (see prior links) is unusual

- all the others I've seen, even chinese, had far more stringent Emergency approval criteria. Not sure about the Russian one.

 

Certainly cause some for concern and truly shocking and trust destroying regarding a UK/Oxford brand

 

Has the O/AZ been given the EA even now by the US ? Not last I looked.
