Monday 23rd November 2009 Tenancy Disputes - Getting Your Deposit Back
In 2007 the Government made it illegal for landlords to hold onto tenancy deposits for more than 14 days without having submitted them to a protected insurance scheme. The UK has 3 tenancy schemes that landlords are required to hand over deposits to for the duration of a tenants stay.
The tenancy deposit schemes were created in order to protect both tenant and landlord in the event of a dispute, regarding the return of a tenancy deposit, at the end of a lease. These schemes act as a dispute resolution service in the instance of a dispute between the tenant and the landlord, that cannot be resolved between the parties involved.
As a tenant in a qualifying rented property in the UK, you should aim to ensure that your deposit has rightfully been submitted to one of the 3 insurance schemes. You can request confirmation of this in writing from the landlord with details of which scheme it is now held with. 
If the landlord will not give confirmation or has not submitted the deposit to one of the schemes, you are entitled to take legal action. To find out more about the tenancy insurance schemes and how they help you to get your deposit back at the end of your tenancy, have a look at our tenancy deposit dispute pack.

Wednesday 18th November 2009 Data Loss - T-Mobile Sells On Customer Data
It has been widely reported that T-Mobile UK is the latest company to join the ranks of data loss offenders. Tens of thousands of personal records for T-Mobile customers were sold on to rival mobile phone salesmen from inside the organisation, leaving customers vulnerable and open to harassment from mobile contract salesmen. 
Amongst the data reported to have been sold on by T-Mobile workers are the names, numbers and contract expiry dates of tens of thousands of their customers, with the recipients of that information said to be salesmen who are increasingly turning to underhand and illegal tactics to capture customer data from their rivals. 
Data loss is proving to be an increasing problem, with personal information swapping hands like a commodity on the black market for what is though to be millions of pounds. Stricter regulations and security protocols have been called for by the Information Commissioner, who is responsible for upholding the Data Protection Act.
Given the increasing severity of such data loss cases and the flippant manner in which such loses seem to be admitted, the Government has been asked to raise fines and add jail time to the list of punishments available for a company that is guilty of breaching the Data Protection Act.
If you have been a victim of such data loss, or think that your data may have been sold on, Compensation Pack offers information about what your rights are and how you can claim compensation.

Monday 16th November 2009 Claim Compensation - Compensation Pack Makes it Easy
Claiming compensation has become a large part of our culture. We are less willing to sit back and be mistreated or misled by the people or businesses that we deal with on a daily basis.
Amongst the most common complaints that we have are in regards to our suitcases being lost or damaged by airlines, our utilities bills not quite matching what we have actually used and mobile phone service providers failing to stick to the contract that we had agreed with them.
Compensation Pack now offers advice to people with these grievances, in the form of downloadable packs that let you know what your rights are, what you can do if those rights are not upheld and how to go about sorting out the problem in the best way possible. The packs contain sample letters and important contact details for organisations that can help you get to the bottom of the matter. 
As a last resort the packs include information on how to go about making a claim in the Small Claims Court. While disputes are often resolved before things get this far, it is always a viable option when seeking compensation. The Small Claims Court allows you to seek compensation up to the amount of £5,000 without the need for costly legal assistance. 
The aim of Compensation Pack is to provide people with the opportunity to take control in situations where most people would just walk away. By knowing more about what can be done in situations where airlines have let you down, your land lord will not return your deposit or you have been a victim of data loss, you have the power to take matters into your own hands and claim compensation in a legally effective and successful way.
