  1. I was at court today with a Similar offence - 68 in a variable 40...M62. I originally Phoned the police camera dept and asked for camera proof including gantry signs showing 40...they sent them and it showed the 40 and my vehicle. I pleaded guilty, and asked for the single justice procedure thingy. Came back with possible short term disqualification, with option for hearing to plead against etc. I asked for a hearing Finally 11 months after the offence, hearing came through. Arrived at court, finally was called in. Offence read out etc and then I had a chance to put forward orally my personal mitigation etc. (Remorse, I was stupid, wont do it again, need license for work as live in rural area etc, first offence, good character standing) Today the magistrates were kind...6 points and a fine...something like £450 plus £85 costs (cant remember the exact amount but was around £535 if greatly different will repost. Have 14 days to pay, they will send me the amount etc. I feel very lucky today, could have been worse. Good luck with your case. Ok slight adjustment fine 450, victim surcharge 45 court costs 85 total £580.
  2. Hi HB, No court date yet, but I have to send my reply by 10/04/2020 as to how I want to proceed. Thanks.
  3. Hi, I was caught on camera doing 68 in a 40 variable limit on the M62. This I do not dispute. (Although there was no real reason for the limit as nothing was in the road at the time and it was 21.45 and light traffic) I have replied to all of the paperwork in time, and pleaded guilty as per the paperwork they sent back (via the online option and opted not to attend court). TBH as this was a first offence and I pleaded guilty, and in my mitigation apologised etc, I expected six penalty points and a fine. Just received from the court, paperwork entitled “Notice of Proposed Driving Disqualification” and I have 2 options - Either “A” - No further information to give to the court, or “B” I want to attend court. (This is if I want to fight the disqualification I gather) I’m not sure how to proceed. I work as a Mobile Service Engineer, including 24 hr call outs and disqualification would affect my job etc. I also live in a rural location so have no viable alternative public transport. I don’t really want to attend court...its a very long way from home, and if I do get disqualified, I wont be able to get home after the hearing. Is it normal to receive a disqualification for a first offence at these speeds? Can I change court if need be to a more local one? Thanks for any help.
  4. Or even better - Abolish the TV licence altogether!
  5. I have received a letter from Lloyds SAR team saying the don't have an up to date signature for me and to send in certified copies!! I don't want to do this for obvious reasons and they have offered alternative of 'parcel' to a local branch for collection. Is this standard, or is there anything I should write back. Thanks.
  6. Can you point me to where I can find out more about this. I have read the Carey case and am now confused as it seems to state in there that a reconstituted version will suffice as long as the contents required are supplied.
  7. Thanks Ford for confirming that. I will leave it a while to see if I get a reply letter. Got an email from the solicitors today, saying they have sent a request to the claimant for the 31.14 documents!! and they agree to a 28 day extension. Trouble is this is two days after the final defence deadline so about as much use as a chocolate fire guard! I replied that I noted their late agreement to the cpr15.5 request, and that a defence had been filed before the deadline. I guess I wait for the CCA request to expire, then write a dispute letter?
  8. I sent my SAR by first class recorded post on the 23/10/14. So far it does not have seem to have arrived! It included the £10 Postal Order. How can I check if the postal order has been cashed? I can't seem find the info easily. Also, is the address correct? The address exists on the address finder and google street map confirms this is a Lloyds Banking Group Building Lloyds TSB Bank PLC DSAR Team Charlton Place C46 Andover Hampshire SP10 1RE
  9. Thanks DX I amended mine best I could and got it in with seconds to spare (literally) The Sols didn't write back to me agreeing to any extension to time under CPR 15.5 to submitting my defence.
  10. Andy, can you have a quick look at my defence please if you can. DEFENCE I XXXXX am the defendant in this action and make the following statement as my defence to the claim brought by the claimant. Except where otherwise mentioned in this defence, I neither admit nor deny any allegation made by the claimant’s Particulars of Claim and put the Claimant to strict proof. The Claimants Statement of Case fails to comply with the requirements of the Civil Procedure Rules in so far as the required Statement of Truth is not verified as it has been signed as a ‘company/firm’ and not a ‘legal representative’ therefore does not comply with CPR Part 22.1 (6)(a)(ii) (Practice Direction 22 3.10* “A legal representative who signs a statement of truth must sign in his own name and not that of his firm or employer.” ) Under CPR part 22.2 (1)(b) (Practice Direction22 4.1 “If a statement of case is not verified by a statement of truth, the statement of case will remain effective unless it is struck out5, but a party may not rely on the contents of a statement of case as evidence until it has been verified by a statement of truth.”) The defendant has in accordance with CPR 31.14 requested copies of the documents mentioned in the unverified particulars of claim form the claimant’s solicitors on 24th October 2014. I deny ever signing the alleged credit agreement mentioned in paragraph 1 of the Claimant’s particulars of claim between Lloyds Banking group and the defendant. It is believed that I agreed to receiving a credit card following a request by the bank to attend an in branch ‘review’ of my account where this and other insurance/pension/payment protection cover products were offered by the financial advisor, and a follow up phone call from another of the banks personnel.The credit card subsequently arrived in the post. The same alleged credit agreement mentioned in paragraph 1 of the Claimant’s particulars of claim between Lloyds Banking group and the defendant has been in dispute since 10th March 2009. A failure of the bank to fully comply with a request under section 78(1) of the Consumer Credit Act 1974 (CCA) to supply a copy of the credit agreement and terms and conditions has put the bank into default of this section, and whilst the default continues, by virtue of section 78(6) they are not entitled to enforce the agreement. Around the time I was experiencing financial difficulties due to redundancy and receiving many phone calls from the bank’s collection departments (and others), it was one of the banks own personal that highlighted the fact that I could put in a request under the CCA rules for a copy of my agreement and it would only cost me a pound. This led to the action in the above paragraph. Without a signed agreement complying fully with the rules as laid down in the CCA 1974 (as amended), the agreement is unenforceable under section 127 In a letter received from the bank dated 12th February 2010, the bank state that they are “endeavouring to locate a copy of the signed agreement”, but to date, well over five years later, nothing has ever been forthcoming in this respect. By reason of the facts and matters set out above, it is denied that the Claimant is entitled to the relief claimed or any relief. Statement of truth I believe that the facts stated in this defence are true.
  11. I believe my defence has to be in by 4pm today, or it counts as being received the following day?
  12. Thanks for your help I have sent the CPR and CCA yesterday. Can I ask what you mean by "for the DN wriggles" ? Can anyone point me in the direction of a defence I can use in absence of the documents mentioned in the POC..Thanks, I don't have much time to submit one unless the claimants agree to an extension.
  13. Yes, I have done the AOS online defending all within the time period I did send SAR to OC recorded yesterday, but did not CPR or CCA. Should I do this now, or is it too late? I have left things a bit late, but have been searching the net and my files as this is over 5 years old now. I assumed as the account was in dispute this long that they would not be able to enforce.
  14. Name of the Claimant ? Drydens/Capquest/LloydsTSB Date of issue? 25th Sept 2014 What is the claim for? The claim is for the sum of 11,712.50 in respect of monies owing by the defendant on a credit agreement held by the defendant with Lloyds Banking Group under the account number XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX upon which the defendant failed to maintain payments. A default notice was served upon the defendant and has not been complied with. By virtue of a sale agreement between Lloyds Banking Group and the claimant, the claim vested in the claimant who has a genuine commercial interest. The defendant has been notified of the assignment by letter. What is the value of the claim? 11,712.50 Claim 410.00 Court fee 100.00 Solicitors Costs Total 12,222.50 Has the claimant included section 69 interest (8%) within the total claim or is it shown separate within the Particulars but not added to the debt? No Interest claimed for. Is the claim for a current or credit/loan account or mobile phone account? When did you enter into the original agreement before or after 2007? Credit Card, going back to 2003, Has the claim been issued by the original creditor or was the account assigned and it is the Debt purchaser who has issued the claim? Debt Purchaser has issued the claim Were you aware the account had been assigned – did you receive a Notice of Assignment? I received a letter saying the debt was sold, whilst the account was still in dispute. Did you receive a Default Notice from the original creditor? Yes, whilst the account was in dispute door to failure to supply a true copy of the credit agreement uploaded to this thread Have you been receiving statutory notices headed “Notice of Default sums” – at least once a year? No. Why did you cease payments:- Got into financial difficulty in 2009 following liquidation of business. Was there a dispute with the original creditor that remains unresolved? Yes, non compliance with a request to section 78 of the CCA1974, then failing to supply a true copy of the same. Did you communicate any financial problems to the original creditor and make any attempt to enter into a debt management plan? Communicated difficulties, and sent CCA request. I was not in a position at the time to pay anything to anyone.
  15. I have uploaded the default notice originally received. What strikes me as odd, is that it does not refer to any specific paragraphs of any terms and conditions. Even if it did, having not had any received from the OC following non compliance to the CAA I would not have been able to verify them. Can anyone offer any advice as to whether this would invalidate the DN, or the fact it was sent whilst the account was in dispute? Thanks. [ATTACH=CONFIG]53857[/ATTACH]
