    • i suspect the charge on the Land registry site against the house reads:   2. (XX.XX.2007) RESTRICTION: No disposition of the registered estate is to be completed by registration without a certificate signed by the applicant or his conveyancer that written notice of the disposition was given to XX Council at P.O. Box XX, STREET, TOWN, POSTCODE, being the person with the benefit of a Charge under Section 22 of the Health and Social Services and Social Security Adjudications Act 1983.   ..............   that is a restriction k and is useless to the council, as all 'legally' your have to do is inform them AFTER the house has been sold . then it's too late money has gone.   dx
    • I have got a copy of the charge. The Land Registry responded to say that the document attached to the RX1 was as follows. The A4 document headed 'Health and Social Services and Social Security Adjudications Act 1983 and National Health Service and Community Care Act 1990' is a statutory charge. However as the person concerned (your late father) was one of joint proprietors of the property, the charge could not be registered or noted. Instead it was protected by registration of a restriction.   This is a statutory charge that has arisen under section 22 of the Health and Social Services and Social Security Adjudications Act 1983.   Unfortunately the Land Registry blog was discontinued on 30 June 2020 [I only found out today!] they're waiting for a new platform which could take a few weeks - so I haven't been able to obtain any other advice, other than what I found in the Hardwick and co website today which stated that S22 of HASSA had been repealed and stated that    After 1 April 2015 a Local Authority will only be able to recover unpaid care home fees by securing a judgment debt either in the County Court or the High Court (s69(1) of the Act). and The Act increases the time limit for the recovery of a debt comprising of unpaid care home fees from three years to six years from the date the sum becomes due   hence I thought that as the fees had not been paid and more than 3 years had elapsed that perhaps the charge was no longer extant?    If the restriction is such that the CS only has to notify the council [and there's no restriction on me selling] then I thought the sale could proceed while I continue to battle it out with the council. Who haven't been in touch now since 2016.   This is all very complicated - I'm sure it could be simplified!!   Thank you      
    • You've been here since 2013 so you must be aware that the tell people all the time to read our customer services guide and to record their calls. We try to remind people that if they don't record their calls then sooner or later they will regret it. I think if you do anything morning telephone you should have read our customer services guide first because then you would have the evidence you need to persuade people that you did take the action that you saved it. I suspect one of the problems it will be managing to establish that you let people know in advance. If there is a delivery which signed for that you may find that Amazon and also your bank may not be very happy about helping you out. Although the bank may activate the chargeback, they may later on after a further "investigation" for the money back from you. Suggest that you send Amazon an SAR.  
    • Thanks. Do I go to the bank and ask for this, or is this something I have to apply for outside the bank?

    • Hi,  
      I was in Sainsbury’s today and did scan and shop.
      I arrived in after a busy day at work and immediately got distracted by the clothes.
       
      I put a few things in my trolley and then did a shop.
      I paid and was about to get into my car when the security guard stopped me and asked me to come back in.
       
      I did and they took me upstairs.
      I was mortified and said I forgot to scan the clothes and a conditioner, 5 items.
      I know its unacceptable but I was distracted and Initially hadn’t really planned to use scan and shop.
       
      No excuse.
      I offered to pay for the goods but the manager said it was too late.
      He looked at the CCTV and because I didn’t try to scan the items he was phoning the police.
       
      The cost of the items was about £40.
      I was crying at this point and told them I was a nurse, just coming from work and I could get struck off.
       
      They rang the police anyway and they came and issued me with a community resolution notice, which goes off my record in a year.
      I feel terrible. I have to declare this to my employer and NMC.
       
      They kept me in a room on my own with 4 staff and have banned me from all stores.
      The police said if I didn’t do the community order I would go to court and they would refer me to the PPS.
       
      I’m so stressed,
      can u appeal this or should I just accept it?
       
      Thanks for reading

Hi

 

My garage door (up and over) is old and knackered and came off the runners, broke where the cable attaches and got stuck in an open/half hanging way about 4 weeks ago.

 

I text my LL twice and got no response so I emailed him along with his wife moaning about it being ignored and the fact it's full of our things such as bikes, tools, two freezers full of food and anyone can just walk in and take what they like and that as the back door from the garage to the garden was also broke an couldn't be secured, everything in my garden was also open to theft. This prompted a response and she got back to me.

It then took almost a week to get someone out to manage to close it, not fix it though, but I pointed out this wasn't just to be left as I have loads of possessions in there and the kids can't access there bikes or scooters it was still urgent.

 

This was about 10 days ago and not heard anything else from my LL's and a few days ago the door started to cave in again, so I've now text her twice and tried to call but had no response.

 

The high winds today are pushing it to the point where it's going to collapse and quite frankly I'm pi**ed off as it's now leaving all my possessions open to theft, insurance is invalid as they're not secured and still no answers from my LL.

 

I've emailed them to advise if I don't hear from them within 48 hours I will get someone round to either repair or replace the door myself and then bill them for the costs.

 

Am I within my rights to do this as I'm at a loss what else to do.

 

Thanks

Lisa

I think you are completely within your rights to do this. I think is extremely reasonable. I think that you should get the repair work independently assessed by two repairers. Then send both of the written quotations to your landlord by recorded delivery and tell him that because of the risk to your property and also because the damage is getting worse you will put the work in hand with the cheapest of the repairers in seven days and then send him the bill.

Then if you don't get any reply, put the work in hand, pay for it and then send the bill to your landlord – and then follow up with a letter of claim if he doesn't pay within seven days.

However, I'm sure it won't come as any surprise to you when I warn you that if your landlord is the slightest bit vindictive, that he may then make moves to evict you by way of revenge.

It's a nasty situation to be in – but yes you are well within your rights but do it carefully, make sure that everything is completely above board and transparent and that your landlord is informed every step of the way. However, you should certainly act assertively because if your landlord senses that you are unsure of yourself, you may well find that you will be simply played along.

can you afford to pay for it and just politely ask for reimbursement and clobber him when your tenancy is up if he doesnt cough up?
