Her Reluctant Lord By Sue London
Thomas continued his manipulation of the king. In trying to get a bill through Parliament making him Edward's personal governor, Seymour requested Edward's royal signature on the bill. But Edward was uncertain and reluctant to go behind the back of the protector, Somerset, and of the regency council, and he would not sign it. Seymour persistently pressured Edward, until Edward felt threatened. But Seymour did not give up. He tried to persuade Edward that he did not need a protector, getting Edward to admit that it might be better for Somerset to die. It is not known what the king meant by this, but it was probably uttered innocently. Seymour intended that the king's royal signature and personal support would destabilize Somerset's position as protector, and as a member of the regency council. In his frustration and inability to gain any significant influence over the king, Thomas Seymour began to think in terms of open rebellion.
Her Reluctant Lord by Sue London
After a fierce verbal encounter in Edinburgh, when Tullibardine attempted to make Simon renounce his claim to the lordship, Simon went to Castle Dounie to negotiate with Hugh's widow Amelia for the hand of her young daughter (also called Amelia). Tullibardine responded by removing his niece to Blair Castle, stronghold of the Murrays. It was his intention that she marry Alexander Fraser, heir to Lord Saltoun and unrelated to the highland Frasers.
Before you can take your landlord to court, you'll need to write to your landlord to give them a last chance to do the repairs. Do this by sending a letter or email. If you have a letting agent, send the letter to them too.
Make sure you have as much evidence as possible to back up your claim. You'll need to be able to prove that you asked your landlord for repairs and they didn't do them. You'll also have to prove your landlord is responsible for repairs.
The tribunal is made up of 2 or 3 professionals, for example solicitors or surveyors. They'll look at the cost of renting similar properties in your area. They'll also look at what your landlord could charge if a new tenant was renting the property.
The tribunal will tell you when to send your evidence about your rent increase.You'll need to send your evidence to the tribunal and to your landlord. Make sure you keep a copy of any evidence you send.
It might be best to go to an oral hearing if your landlord asks for one - you'll be able to answer any questions the tribunal members have. You'll also be able to hear what your landlord is saying about your situation.
The tribunal members will ask you and your landlord questions at the hearing - it's a formal process but it's not as formal as going to court. The tribunal members will explain everything to you and answer any questions you have about the process.
You can refuse to let the tribunal members visit your home but it's best to let them in. It means they'll be able to see any problems in your home, for example any repairs the landlord hasn't done but should have. 041b061a72
