  1. thanks, but i think they just take on apprentices between 18-20.
  2. wanting to do a IT course/training to develop my IT skills. Want to go into a support technician role, just wandering if anyone has done any courses and where and if it a successful choice?? I have looked at compTIA+ and MCITP delivered by skillsoft, which is being offered by reed.co.uk, has a steep price tag....
  3. leah, the council are saying i cant have the rent paid directly to myself untill 2 months of arrears which is a joke!!! I am going to have to evict them as they are taking the P!!!
  4. pixie i dont think they are as they wouldn't get bitchy everytime i ask for my rent...
  5. kaymarie, yes i have requested it to be paid directly to me which they agreed and filled the form out with my bank details, but when i phoned the council they said we cant do this until they are 8 weeks in arrears, which is a joke, so im basically going to lose 2 months rent!!! HB is a joke! The council arent bothered what they do with the money even if it is fraud which it clearly is as there is no way the council has not paid them!
  6. WOT R U ON???? i aint claming the benefit for no one, im the landlord, my tenants are ripping me off with the DSS, u get it now???? I aint part of the benefit class!!
  7. cheese 69... what a name...lol if only all tenants was as good as you mate, the housing told me themselves the tenants have to be 8 weeks in arrears to have the dss paid directly, so im just going on what i have been told...
  8. cant have the HB paid directly to me until they are 2 months in arrears!!! so guess the thieving ***** have spent that money!!! im going to write to the housing now and get it paid directly!!
  9. im considering applying to virgin media, just wanted some advice, whats the company like to work for and is it a good atmosphere as most call centres are rubbish and people dont have nice things to say about them?? cheers
  10. thats so true... its a 12 month contract, they seemed nice at first but are now playing up big time!! hopefully get them to sort it and get the HB directly paid to me..
  11. cheers ghostrider, i think its only fair as if the tenant gets the dss he/she can do what they want with it, which clearly my tenants are doing and its a joke!!! So will hopefully get this form and sort it out.
  12. how do you know that??? trust me it does happen!! a thief/thug will rob whoever it doesnt matter if they are the same ethnicity as them or not!
  13. yes going to look into that, but they told me the housing dont pay the money directly?? which i think is bull!! which form do i need to do this and whats the procedure? thanks
  14. need advice on how to evict a tenant, they have been living there for 3 months now and never pay the rent on time, its always 2-3 weeks late??? They get dss and always make excuses; they have not recieved the cheque yet etc... Isn't DSS always paid on time, so they can cash it in and pay the landlord as i thought this was the standard procedure?? any help appreciated. thanks
  15. yep, it looked genuine so i have paid it!! couldn't be botherd with the hassle!! heads up - dont park on that side road!!
  16. we got a parking ticket last night, after circling the car park for 20 mins and could not find a space, so we parked on the side road walking towards the arena, where the 2 restaurants are. (parked there before without any ticket) Got a parking ticket for £70 or if paid within 14 days its £35..... and its from the sheffield council, thought cineworld is privately owned, so why is this ticket from the sheff council???? any ideas....... might just pay it to get them off my back!!!!
  17. this has been discussed many times, but here goes...... if you like kebabs you should check out just halal kebabs on the wicker, they make there own doner and there shish kebebs are the best i've had... curries - akbars in rotherham. A bit dark in there but the foods nice.
  18. cheers guys... there in no internal pipe showing its in the wall. so not sure about the isolation valve inside..... I have put a new plastic grey stop end on it now, had the white one on before, which i was told is for the inside not outside. I am in S60, i still think i need the pipe capping so no chance of it leaking!
  19. i have fitted the bronze one but its coming off, atleast it did yesterday, so dont really want to risk it again, the plastic one has just come off again..... The water in the pipe isn't turning into ice atleast it isnt now as i have just been to check, but it is filled with water, the pipe is outside and there is no stop tap on it... i have had some insulation round the pipe but that hasnt helped...
  20. outside 15mm copper pipe keeps leaking, its attached to a garden tap and its had a plasctic stop end on it for over a year but has been coming off in this very cold climate, so i bought a compression bronze stop end last week, that was ok but again came off yesterday just as i was about to go out, so i have put the plastic one back on as i didnt have any time or spanners to tighten the bronze one, but have got a feeling its going to come off again and im on a water meter so i dont wana be out all day whilst its leaking..... any ideas on what i can use that will do the trick??? or is it best to get it capped off by a plumber once & for all and how much to do this???? i know its only a small job but i need it sorting... thanks
  21. update, thought i would let you guys know incase anyone else suffers from this.... got the AA out and after some thought by the patrol man, he thought the fuel pump had gone but after checking and looking around the engine bay he noticed a plug was loose and wasn't sitting correctly which went to the camshaft sensor, he held it tight and it started, so he has taped it and its firing up nicely now... not sure if i needed them new glow plugs or if this sensor was causing the slow start up on cold mornings, as ever since its been cold its taken a while to start?? BTW the AA guy did say diesel should'nt freeze in these conditions but he said its possible. top service from the AA
  22. it started this morning but conked out straight away, so not sure what it is. seems like a fuel problem!!
  23. bought the diesel from savacentre or esso cant be exactly sure but i filled up about 2 weeks ago. I will look at the fuel filter tomorrow if i dont have any joy. cheers guys
  24. cheers guys, its my workhorse which i need running asap, its a bora tdi. we will see if he is right tomorrow as its in the garage, i really hope he is.... Any ideas what it can be if its not the diesel???
