    • nothing new always been that way for 25+yrs now i had voip lines with NTL back in the late 90's which is why a real trucall box or a handset with real truecall software in it is SO good.   on average i get about 25-35 of these calls a month NONE get thru  the ones that spoof UK or mobile numbers are still screened are easily dealt with the truecall system   if they are real, the only thing they have to do is speak and you get an alert ring to listen to whom call with the option to accept or ZZapp them. once zapped that number never gets thru again.   its worthy to note that the scammers only ever use disconnected numbers, or fake numbers after a known local UK dialling code well the truecall software already knows these numbers as it gets the same databases the scammers use. if the number doesnt come up on the fake/disconnected list, it also then checks if the UK number is listed active UK and will auto put people thru   very clever little device worth every penny and mine is from 2006 when i joined CAG.
    • No the info on comms log isn't quite right,   I hadn't worked since Xmas due to bereavement but I wasn't staying in Somerset since the Xmas. The comms log is very deceitful indeed and after I had finished evaluating it fully I came to the conclusion MB are very manipulative, they lie, cheat and twist the truth, but it only takes the slightest slip up and everything crumbles.   You see in order for MB to have taken any further steps they have to be entitled to take them. So when they lie and try to deceive the truth prevails 😊, so to send a copy of a Default Sums Notice dated 15/1/17 that doesn't exist on the log anywhere and Ive never had the original and then fail to include one in the SAR that is listed on the log as generated on 18/1/17 (not had this one either)  doesn't the consequence of that 1 act prevent them from any further action until the notices are served    86 (e) Notice of default sums (5)If the creditor or owner fails to give the debtor or hirer the notice under this section within the period mentioned in subsection (2), he shall not be entitled to enforce the agreement until the notice is given to the debtor or hirer.       But I am reducing the complaint and sticking to basics

    • I’m in desperate need of help
       
      I bought some clothes online in may through Evans and paid through PayPal
      returned them all seven days later
       
      I waited the 14days for my refund and no refund came
      I put in a dispute through PayPal but I didn’t get any emails to escalate the case - PayPal closed it. 
      evans said they couldn’t refund the money because PayPal have cancelled the refund because of the open dispute
       
      I contacted PayPal
      they said the dispute had been closed but Evans at no point had attempted a refund.
      fast forward to today
       
      I’ve got copies of numerous messages sent to and from twitter messages as it’s the only way I can contact them
      I’ve also contacted their customer service too
      all I get is PayPal have cancelled refund because dispute is still open.
       
      I have proved that the dispute is closed
      I have got an email saying that if Evans sent the refund they would accept it
      but up until the date I got the email they have not once attempted a refund .
       
       I have sent them a letter before court email
      I have even offered to have the full refund as a gift card just to get this sorted !
       
      I’m literally at the end of my tether and don’t know where to turn next !
       
      i suffer with mental health issues and this is affecting my health and I’d saved the money for a year to buy these clothes as I’m on a low income .

I have been renting my buy to let house to an agency for the past 3 years and gave notice beginning of November, as required, for the 3 month notice.  I am now asking what stage is the process at and when will the tenants be moved on, and now nobody is responding to my calls and emails at all.  The lovely chap who I signed with initially had assured me there will be no problems getting my house back as I explained to him I had been 'through the ringer' with previous tenants and courts, legal fees etc. and now am very ill and want to sell my property but nobody answering me, and notice given 3 months before lockdown, so shouldn't be any issues, but seems everyone gone quiet on me and I'm worried that the council tenants have not even been given notice.

Does anybody have any experience with the 'guarantee rent' agencies?

Hi WGA,

 

Your post has been edited to make it easier to read. Please don't post in large blocks of text.

 

Did you give notice to the tenant, or did you tell the agents you wanted them to give notice ?

 

Have you communicated in writing so you have a paper trail of your attempts to give notice ?

 

What's the name of the agent involved ? It may be useful to send the agent a DSAR but answer the Q's first please.

 

Keep everything in writing only.

Thank you for your response, I've received an email as below

 

'The tenant has not vacated the property despite being served an NTQ which expired when your contract expired. The lockdown has meant that there has been a reduced number of  properties that have been available or the tenant to move into and the local authority will not initiate proceedings until the tenant has refused an offer.   

 

All eviction are currently on hold until the 23.08.20 when a review will be completed by government to confirm if they can recommence. Once we know we will need to discuss and seek instruction on what action steps will be taken to give you vacant possession.'

 

Does this mean I just have to wait and does the tenant have the right to refuse entry to possible buyers or for a valuation, as the tenant has caused big problems in the past not letting my representatives in as urgently need to sell.

If the house is rented to a local authority then they will not be in a hurry to rehouse the tenant.  Council tenants can be rehoused right now it is only physical evictions that have been put on hold.  You also wont get an eviction till you go to court and not sure if they are open for such cases as the moment.  Think you will need to accept that due to the current situation you wont be getting your house back in a hurry and trying to sell it with tenants in that wont move out is going to be impossible.

If your not good with paperwork I would check if you have cover for legal assistance with your Landlords Insurance and get a solicitor onto the case, the Local Authority will also take a bit more notice with a solicitor involved.  They havent even said that they have taken any steps to rehouse their tenants so will drag it out as long as possible.  Afraid you will need legal assistance to stop this dragging out for as long as the LA want it too.  

For your information Royal Mail is no taking signatures on any mail (Still charging for it thought) so best to save the cost and hassle and just send everything by email which is totally acceptable by a court.
