    • Hi   I assume this mattress was the Tenants own property?   So after moving out the Tenants provided an attachment showing a stained mattress and wanting full deposit back and threatening to claim against you for this.   1. Tenants failed to notify you of this stained mattress issue until the end of tenancy after they had vacated the property.   2. You have no evidence that this was the actual mattress used in that property nor evidence to back up there claim the staining caused this mattress damage.  (i.e. one of them could have had an accident and wet the bed or done this when they moved from the property).     3. Ask them that you wish the mattress independently inspected. (which you are fully entitled to do and if it proves this claim is false it will be added to the deposit claim by you the landlord for damages as well as the Garden if you need to get landscapers in to carry out the work that should have been carried out by Tenants as per Tenacy Agreement and raised  by yourself (Landlord) on a few occasions which Tenants failed to rectify even at end of tenancy.   4. Ask them to provide you with the contact details of there Contents Insurance Company (tenants whether Private or Social Housing should always take out and have Contents Insurance but is up to that tenant) bet they don't provide it Big question is the Deposit protected in a Tenancy Deposit Scheme (TDS) and those Tenants that have left were given a copy of the Prescribed Terms for that TDS? (Bear in mind you may need to tell TDS that you are in dispute with the Tenant about damages i.e. mattress and Garden)    
    • plenty of time to research and calm down. nothing much to do until the end of june.    
    • well ...... 1st you need to go back to post 1 and carefully read ALL this thread from the start again and pay attention to the advice and the undertones it explains about 'debt'.   2nd ...the truth is you owe no-one ANYTHING, the OC wrote off and sold the debt, and got most of it back against tax and business insurance schemes ...throw the morality card out the window...the OC did by selling the debt on for <10p=£1. and the DCa want the full balance ...id so many fools stopped paying powerless DCA's tomorrow, the whole industry would collapse overnight.   3rd the only reason this is still around your neck is because you failed to follow given advice...had you ..it would now be statute barred.      ^^^ very important research the M+S credit card debacle using our enhanced google searchbox on this page   as for the PAPLOC reply,   D.. desipte a previous CCA requests, the claimant has yet to supply any/all of the required paperwork.   i: delete [CC is attached to this reply form]"   
    • Hi again   Yes, it's been a lovely day weather wise.   Guess you've better things to do with weather like today than help with this problem, so thanks very much for your input, it's very much appreciated.   Late this afternoon I did receive a reply from the tenants, and they are asking me to go 50/50 with getting the garden sorted, not only that, as they have moved away they are expecting me to get the quotes.   Regarding you view on this issue, its so easy not to see the whole picture and my thoughts that the staining damp may be of their own doing didn't occur to me as I was so locked into the historical leak. Taking a closer look at the room in question today, I'm convinced that they are trying it on with the stained mattress- they did mail through a picture and then a receipt for supposedly the mattress. My wife and I then took both the pic and receipt to the bedding store where purchase was made to ask if the two married up, the picture does not show any emblems/manufactures logo or such to prove that this is the case, so we are none the wiser- our thoughts being that the stained mattress is from elsewhere.   A few days back I spoke to our letting agent regarding all of this, as was quite correctly mentioned there are two parts to this equation, namely the mattress and then the property.   Our agents mentioned to me that as an inventory was not carried out initially with the let, (hindsight) the pictures that were used to advertise the property could not be used as evidence to present to the TDS to be compared to the pictures now as there is no proof that the advertising pictures were in fact how the property was when the let started. I mentioned that all digital pictures have a means of finding when that pic was taken- Geo tag/Metadata- agent was quite surprised by this. The agents thoughts then went for a hide in a vacuum-   This is going off at a tangent here-many moons ago my wife studied computer science at a local University, one of her classmates who she is still in touch with is now a practising Solicitor. My wife suggested that maybe I give her a call, a bit rude I guess, but I did  phone and with the pleasantries out the way  I asked for her opinion of the best way to get this sorted. Her remit isn't landlord type stuff, however she will speak to a colleague on Monday and come back to me.   The property is due to be relet on the 21st, we will ensure that the new tenants move in to a home that is immaculate and welcoming, trouble is its getting a tadge close to get the garden issues sorted in time.   I know that all this will get closure in the end, but at the moment I've had more fun with a toothpick-   Again, many thanks.

Capquest/Drydens Letter of Claim - old Virgin/MBNA card

Just direct it to junk,  I blocked them years ago, they are still sending crapola to my spam folder about 'important documents', despite the fact the debt has been SB's for a year.

We could do with some help from you.

Hi All,

 

Been ignoring  any and all emails/texts etc from Arrow/Capquest as per sage advice on here, and today got a letter saying they are transferring my account to the a/m people.

 

Is this a precursor to more action, or just more of their shuffling paper around/scare tactics?

No. Credit. Stopped paying about 3 years ago. Never paid the dc’s though. I’ve got a letter from capquest that says one of the accounts is closed & being transferred to the oc too.

Got my first letter from Dryden/Fairfax demanding I call them & give them a full financial breakdown of all my income & expenditure.

I won’t be filling in the forms they’ve sent though. You can be sure of that!

I’m minded to ignore this letter & bin it. If I do though, are they likely to pursue through the courts. It’s for over £9k after all!

Ok  Np. 

Given that its for £9k though, are they likely to pursue it, in light of the fact that I'm 68 soon?

They are trying to be a fake bailiff / judge, but your income and expenses are NONE of their business.

 

Only a judge or entities such as DWP, HMRC, Tax Credits or Council tax have a right to ‘demand’ this from you.

can't see they (arrows/capquest) have ever responded to your previous CCa request, so the debt is well disputed.

 

unless the drydens letter is one entitled letter of claim with a reply pack inc an I&E giving you 30 days to reply .

ignore them.

I’m not at home at the mo, but I’m pretty sure it’s for MBNA (which I’ve never had), or it might be MBNA via Virgin cc.

I have never had an MBNA card.

I believe it was late in 2017, but I can only go back fir 15 months on my internet banking on my phone.

I’ll check on the pc, but I’m sure it was there or thereabouts.

I was very ill for a time so things got a little out of sync. Back on form now though.
