Is this a DWP system failure or just an excuse?

I am a little behind the curve with this scenario.

But, if the DWP/UC are supposed to inform you and didn't, is it not worth while P118 members crowd funding a test case to try and set the precedent that when the DWP fail in their duty they are responsible to the landlord as they facilitated the illegal action of the tenant, ( or thoughts along those lines).
Would legal minds care to comment as to the validity of this?
The only way I can see of bringing DWP/UC into line with reality is to legally pin them down at every opportunity.... Read More

Expensive insurance due to sensitive 3rd party information?

Management Company Overcharging?

Should, by any chance, the management company have the initials FC, then your only long term solution is to force the purchase of the freehold. It took us almost 2 years to achieve, this with many legal letters to and fro concerning their supposed overlooked costs etc.

Said letters and pressure continued for almost 9 months after the sale date, stopping eventually on threat of being sued for harassment. With everything done and dusted, life is so much easier, less stressed and a lot cheaper.
As for costs, the capital outlay is immediately reflected in an increase in property value and then some. So all in all it's the only way to go if you can.... Read More
