    • @ Aequitas   The one confused seems to be yourself as the OP if you look at this thread and then the other Forum Does Not have a 'LEASE' you need to read both very carefully rather than jump to a conclusion.   Oh and the Law you refer to is nothing to do with this matter.   Let my clarify it for you:   1. The OP has signed an Agreement with Mear Group for the 5 years in which Mear Group have a Home Office Contract to house Asylum Seekers. (This is not a Lease but a Signed Agreement between the Landlord and Mear Group the exact same as a Letting Agent would do)   2.  The Asylum Seekers were then placed in the Landlord Property under an AST which is an Assured Shorthold Tenancy (AST) by Mear Group which are dealing with the OP (landlords) property and as Asylum Seekers can't sign that AST due to their status this is then done by Mear Group that is why under 'Tenant' in that AST it states 'Mear Group'. Again this is not a Lease but an AST.   3. To be clear the OP has 2 Agreements in place at present for this property (a) The 5 year Agreement they Signed with Mear Group who have the Home Office Contract to house Asylum Seeker which is not a Lease. (b) the Assured Shorthold Tenancy Agreement (AST) after Mears Group placed Asylum Seeker into the OPs (Landlords) Property which as the Provider they signed the AST under 'Tenant' as the Asylum Seekers can't due to their status again this is not a Lease.   You seems to be confusing that the AST is for 5 years when the OP has never stated this on either Forum, they pointed out on that other forum in post#27 and I quote:     The above quote is nothing to do with the AST Signed by Mears Group for the Asylum Seekers placed into that property but is in fact to do with the Agreement the OP (Landlord) signed with Mears Group to let/Maintain their Property for 5 Years the same as a Letting Agency would have in place with a Landlord.   The issue here is not the AST or those residing in that property under that AST Agreement but the issue is to do with the 5 year Agreement that the OP signed with Mears Group under the Home Office Contract to let their property and the repairs they carried out to the roof costing £1800 - £1900 which the OP had no knowledge/never gave consent to carry out.   This is why is you fully read my post#36 properly I have asked the OP to post up both the AST & Agreement Signed with Mears Group Redacted to save this confusion as we really need to see both of those and the wording dur to this issue with the roof repairs carried out by Mears Group and that Invoice to the OP ( Landlord) got.

    • In my experience Smarty's customer service is lousy and although they're owned by Three and claim that they use their network, key features like texting on wifi calling aren't available as they are if you contract directly with Three.

After sending a SAR to my great pals at the SLC, I was sent a big bundle of information including copies of screen dumps and lists of times they have tried to call an address I told them I had moved from in pursuance of a debt I didn't earn enough to repay.

 

While I was on a well-earned holiday, they followed this up with a letter saying the OFT's report refers only to banks and credit cards and as SLC are a not for profit Government organisation - "when time and resources are expended in trying to obtain payments, it falls to the defaulting customer to cover these costs; it should not be the tax payer who bears the cost of default."

 

Because as a former student I am obviously not a tax payer!?

 

They have refunded some "admin charges", but are sticking on £32 which they call "trace fees" and seem to relate to getting my details from Experian.

 

I did send a letter telling them I'd moved, sadly not recorded, is this worth pursuing or are the fees for hunting me down to where I'd hidden myself (on the electoral roll, name on all household bills) legit?

I got the same nonsense when I spoke to them.

 

The OFT's report does apply to credit cards, but the point of law we are talking about is the Unfair Terms in Consumer Contracts Regulations (1999).

 

All penalty charges have to truly reflect the cost of administering them.

They are not permitted to be a profit-making enterprise for any organisation.

 

If a penalty charge is higher than its administrative cost, it is illegal.

 

 

(Note use of word "illegal" This is taken from the BBC's Money Programme website)
