Received our 22nd letter today. :roll:

The letters one and two were gentle reminders addressed to us personally.
Letters three and four were addressed to "the present occupier" and were gentle reminders to get a TVL.

Then the threats started.
Letters of threat after threat, but after letter number twelve, they've started repeating themselves.

There is not one single letter that has been written by a human being, and not one letter that had been dated other than the month. Also, not one letter signed by a human being either, just a facsimile of a signature.

Can you pause the TVL to continue later, or are you forced to stop it with the resultant loss, and then start a new one off?

In case it wasn't obvious: I'd given up. This is implicitly covered on the link I gave. There is no "resultant loss" as far as I can tell.

Daughter took out a DD monthly for her TVL where she was living, and then moved house into her friend's place sharing a room with her friends family. Happened only a couple of months or so ago,
Her friends are fully covered TVL.
Daughter got in touch with TVL and stopped the DD and she is not out of pocket.

The system has changed since we had a DD for a TVL.
Basically, it's a subscription these days.
Maybe you can now effectively have a single month of TVL.

The rules have changed in the past dozen years, and about time too.
