    • ukcps just a typo martin.   you don't really have to really worry   just sit tight and await to see if they issue a letter of claim or action.   the landlord will have copies of everything if the renters didn't fwd it on as they should do.
    • I'm not 100% upto speed with the latest PAP but my understanding is i have 30 days to reply to the LoC.   I have asked for an up to date statement as i havent had one in well over 12 months and i was playing with them a bit, so i might wait a week for that to arrive so i have it in black and white before firing off the SB, it will be sent anyway but would like to see all my ducks in a row first if i can before pulling the trigger.
    • Hi,   I defaulted on a Vodafone contract, the default date is 31/07/2015, the amount at that date was approximately £650 now nearly £800.   Lowell Portfolio 1 Ltd now have the debt and it was passed on to Lowell Solicitors who have sent me a "Notice of Claim Issue" on the 31/08/2020, this letter was sent after the claim form 25/08/2020.   I called Lowell, asked for proof of the agreement, they was rude saying a CCJ will be entered against me that day or the next not knowing I filled out the online claim form, so I put the phone down. I was then sent a "Notice of pending County Court Judgment (CCJ)" on the 13/09/2020.   I think I made a mistake with the online form, I did not admit to the claim but I ticked the jurisdiction box, can that be undone?   I added my claim yesterday by checking through recent claims from this forum. I'm now at the point where I'm being asked if I want to counter claim, do I wait? Also I have not sent CPR 31.14 letter yet as I can not find a template on here or know how to send payment of £1.   Please help.
    • Well its UKCPS unless they are the same people and yes it was MNPR but no PCN left on car, rec'd through post. Atm i cant find the original PCN but its probably at home, as im high risk category or covid, im currently staying with my son as my mrs is a key worker and we have 3 step kids in school, 2 of which are isolating so i have t stay away as i have no safety net if i have to isolate being self employed. 23-09-2020, 22_47 Office Lens(4).pdf   None of their photos clearly show the area where the permit is displayed due to the angle of the windscreen and the sky glare coming back, i have pics showing it is correctly displayed and their own pics show its in the correct bay.   All that said, the lease would trump it all anyway but i am here as a guest and my son is the tenant but there is no mention of parking arrangements in his tenancy so im not sure how to go about getting a copy of the lease to beat them with if my pics and video showing the correct dont suffice.

    • 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 .

My partner started a new job and notice handed in correctly etc,

 

As he worked through out covid, we was under the impressions any holidays left would be carried over due to the temp law, the company never confirmed or deny and even assist with anything during covid just emails to say not in office. 

 

We have worked out on the gov holiday calculator that my partner should get paid 18 days holiday, but they only paid 5.333 days and are not responding to any emails or calls, it is over £1000 in money missing as he works 12 hours shifts, are they correct not to pay him any holidays owed to him before covid? 

 

thanks

After getting hold of the company, they state they have paid me 8 days (they have not as i work 12 hours shifts) and they paid 64 hours which total 5.333 days, they are now saying as my site was not affected by COVID they do not owe me anything and charged an admin fee of £20 for helping in getting the SIA badge but this have never been told to me! 

 

Site was affected by COVID as the hours I was working was 60 hours a week, but then another site was shut due to covid so my hours and days dropped to 4 on 4 off, and if i work out my holiday entitlement through GOV website it states 1.66 weeks and i work that out as 11 days, they are refusing to assist

I assume your holidays run from March to April or something similar. As far as i know your holidays continue to accrue - covid or not, especially since you kept working they have no leg to stand on.

yes, you will need to know when the holiday year starts and ends, some ar jaqn to dec, others april to march and so on. Many schools and colleges use sept to aug

thanks for help, so ACAS helped as much as they could and ended up doing early conciliation. 

 

So holidays start from 1st April till 31st March, 

My Partner started 9th Feb and finished on 17th July and 0 hour contract. 

 

Before covid was doing 60 hours a week then covid and was 4 on 4 off, but nothing to say this. 

 

We worked out it is 1.66weeks 11.62 in days to be paid from the period, he was paid for 8 days after (at only 8 hours though not 12, but we sorted that bit) 

 

I know it's only 3.62days still owed but its a lot of money to us at the moment. 

 

When acas spoke to them, they said same to us, that my partners site was never affected by covid and that he could have taken holidays at any time and that he was told when he started the holiday periods.  but then covid happened and nothing the office staff were furloughed and emails to the office stated this. 

 

we are not sure if it is worth going to court as ACAS said that as it is over 3 months ago we may not have a case to take, but then it makes you think how many other business are going to get away with this.

So it sounds like you are after the holiday he accrued between 9th Feb and March 30 which you have worked out to be 3.62.

 

Does the company allow holidays to be carried over to the next holiday year? most companies allow 5 days some don't.

 

If your partners company don't allow carry over and he doesn't use his holiday he looses it.

 

However there is a new rule for covid to carry over holidays over the next 2 years - look that up

Hi thanks yes that’s correct, I’ve looked it up but it is very vague and the company are saying that he wasn’t affected. By COVID 😕

I don't think its worth going to court over - cos he carried on working as stated he could have taken his holidays if he wanted to, in which case they will have to stop him due to staff shortage or other business reasons.

And considering the holiday year ending 30th March, most business in the UK were fully operational at that time and lock down was after (i think)
