  1. hi there my brother in law had to sit in on a meeting yesterday after the initial redundancy letters received.

    at this meeting they offered him 12 weeks notice as per statutory law etc..,

    however they were not aware of his written contract of employment which states he must have a 52 week notice period plus use of company car . as it states this in writing can they still legally enforce the 12 week notice period under redundancy?

    they have asked him at this point to continue his normal work and they will get back to him.


    all advice will be greatly appreciated

  2. we have a three year old house which has the nhbc certificate.however the clause for interior fittings expired after 2 years.

    in the block of 9 houses 6 have had issues with laminate surfaces cracking or falling off the kitchen units.

    we have had the kitchen manufacturer visit the site who was suggesting a heat and moisture issue. to date they have offered to supply only replacement panels. we have to collect them from the retailer the builders purchased them from and obviously have to pay for removal and refitting.

    to my mind this does not sound fair when these units are nearly 3 years old.

    can anyone suggest a course of action we can take as a management group?

  3. hi andy

    i sent the defence via email to the court on the basis of the info you gave in post as one above.

    got an email confirming receipt and then today got a letter from court worded as follows


    CASE NUMBER 3QV18412


    I acknowledge receipt of your defence. A copy is being served on the claimant (or the claimant's solicitor).

    The claimant may contact you direct to attempt to resolve any dispute. If the dispute cannot be resolved

    informally, the claimant will inform the court that he wishes to proceed. The court will then inform you of

    what will happen.

    Where he wishes to proceed, the claimant must contact the court within 28 days after receiving a copy of

    your defence. After that period has elapsed, the claim will be stayed. The only action the claimant can then

    take will be to apply to ajudge for an order lifting the stay.

    For Court


    to date have had no reply again concerning documents from bryan carter

  4. cheers andy

    as we dont have any knowledge of what they are claiming for how do we lodge a defence?

    we have requested the information as per previous part of thread but they have not stated they will get this to us in time?

    all i need is some help in compiling a defence in words /template.that is what i meant. i would rather do this earlier than later :-)

    can you help like you first suggested in the earlier part of this thread


    cheers mark

  7. thanks andy

    have done this today as above.

    i have received a letter today with the following content.


    Dear Mrs XXXX




    We write further to your letter dated 14 October 2013 requesting disclosure under Part 31 of the

    Civil Procedure Rules and request for an extension.

    We confirm the claim form was issued by the Northampton County Court Bulk Centre and the

    Court's protocol was followed when issuing the Claimant's Particulars of Claim. Practice

    Direction 7C point 1.4 (3A) eliminates the requirement to attach the documents to the Particulars

    of Claim when they are issued by this Court.

    We confirm that the Claim will most properly be allocated to the Small Claims Track as this is a

    simple contractual matter and Part 31 of the Civil Procedure Rules will therefore not apply. We

    confirm that we have nevertheless requested documentation from our client and hope to revert to

    you shortly, although this will not be within seven days.

    It is the original creditor's policy to issue any agreements on or around the date of the contract

    and statements throughout the duration of the agreement and, in this regard, we ask you to refer to

    your own records.

    We confirm we are agreeable to an extension of 14 days to allow you more time to prepare and

    file your defence.

    Please note that we have not yet been informed that you have filed the acknowledgement of

    service. As you will be aware a Claim was issued in this matter on 3 October 2013. Please

    respond to the Claim using the Response Pack provided by the Court. You should comply with

    the deadlines outlined by the Court in order to avoid a Default Judgment being entered against


    We recommend you seek independent legal advice

    Yours sincerely

  11. hi everyone.hope we can get some help here :)

    i lodged a complaint with above back in 2011 with regard to extra charges and a balance that blemain claim is outstanding.

    we had a secured loan on property over an 84 month period.we made payments every month but when i was made redundant we had to pay on a different date from the original one.blemain kept sending letters at £35 a time and this was a separate issue and they have now agreed to re credit these once ombudsman was involved. however they will not answer as to why there is a large sum outstanding on the loan when we have made all the payments.we now have a deadline to accept the final decision or lose blemains offer of charges refund.

    i have emailed fos but they keep saying they cannot do anymore.

    please can anybody help asap???





  12. hi everyone,hopefully someone can help me with possibly a simple question?

    when we purchsed our house in 1996 we had a mortage arrnged with bradford and bingley.

    we have remained with them since that date and reverted from an interest only mortgage with endownment in 2004 to a repayment mortgage for 3 years at a fixed rate.when this came up for renewal late 2006 we signed an agreement with them for a fixed mortage at an APR of 5.89% fixed till Jan 2017.

    as everone knows they are now under Government control.last year i did not get a statement despite asking several times :( . prior to this year i got a letter saying they were changing my account number for computer purposes.

    however when checking the statement the APR is 3.64% for all last years payments? i have maintained/overpaid the agreed monthly figure since 2006/7 and this is clearly shown on the statement.

    my question is this: would i be worse off financially for querying this rate? i am concerned because of the hype of sudden interest rises predicted.i have a signed copy/ies of the agreemnt sent by B&B to back my account/contract for the fixed rate.:sad:

  13. thanks chris.
