well not criminal so not a magistrates..

i've moved to to the correct forum rather than the one about issues with this web forum.

the property experts should now see this thread and help if they are around, but bear-in-mind its the W/End now





please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...

I have to agree with the above.


What exactly is wrong with the EPC?


Have you checked the Governments website to see if the Property has a Valid EPC:



Find a property's energy certificate including an energy performance certificate (EPC), display energy certificate (DEC) or air conditioning...


Have you raised this issue with the Landlord?


When did your Tenancy initially start and were you given a copy of the EPC at start of Tenancy?

The EPC given at the start of the Tenancy was E. Subsequent EPC demonstrated F. Property Description differs greatly  between two EPC’s.

The Property should never be E, it should never be rented and Tenancy would not be accepted, or even legally possible if true EPC was provided. Tenancy commenced in May 2020. 

The above is already confirmed  by LGO and Landlord lost eviction claim, so proved in court too. Therefore, this fact is proven beyond any doubts. 

My question is :

Do I have grounds to file misrepresentation claim, with damages, as if true EPC  was given, Tenancy would not proceed. Landlord gained Tenancy over false EPC, regardless such being innocent, negligent or deliberate act. 


If any of members have legal understanding, please advise if this claim could proceed in county court. There are no case law on this. 

Thank you

1. Yes

2. No

Do you think such claim has no prospect of success? 

I do not want to waste my time and money if such claim is not prosperous. That is why I need opinions. Thanks for your input.
