  1. hi sorry brownguy is my brother, we use a shared computer. He's really upset today as he has had a CCJ put against him about rent arrears..and was on the forum earlier. I didn't realise he will still logged in and by accident posted on his username..apologies about that. Here is what I put: Hey so just an update..Halfords's solicitors suggested a mechanic who is £600 so it would be £300 each upfront paid..they sent me his expertise as such. And said they had had quotes of £2000-3000 so they felt this £600 quote they had' liased' to get was correct. I looked into the company and although th
  2. To update you all directions came to place..had mediation on Monday put my points across about them not finding a replacement, lack of advertising and also the case law you guys mentioned about frustration of contract..the landlord came back and said he didn't reply to the cpr 18 because he didn't know how to and basically he'll offer £2500 on monthly installments as a option. I also mentioned that when i rang the dps about my £300 deposit they said the estate agent used it towards rent arrears and held it and the landlord says he never got any of that money so as far as he's concerned h
  3. Hi thanks for the advice. I haven't chased her regarding the CPR but thought to note the act she has ignored it, but I wanted to know if i asked for evidence rather than information will the judge use this against me, or will he be open to the fact I am new to the law and a litigant in person? Directions forms have come now, but I had a question regarding the witnesses part of the form..if my witnesses give a statement in writing but are ill or sick what would happen? would i not be able to use their statements...or?
  4. well the woman asking for £4000+ and 2 years of court interest from me for this tenancy. Its a lot of money and if she can't provide even anymore info then i'd be questioning if she's inflated some of her costs and to be honest I have only just finished university so I do not have that money to repay her unless it was monthly i.e. £10 a month until paid off. How would i go about asking the court for a application?
  5. Hey guys just to update you..so I sent my defence off..and also adjusted the CPR request so it was just for information. I received no response to the CPR or my defence and just a letter saying 'the claimant wishes to proceed'. Can anything be done about the fact the claimant has not responded to the CPR with info?
  6. nope i think the op put that they have just put exactly what i said they're going to call upon a technical expert of vehicle maintence..im told by the OP aa and rac won't get involved in these things..so dot know who they'll use..OP can you eleborate? Either way I'm surprised Halfords won't go into settlement after they see the disclosure of your evidence..
  7. Any help appreciated, especially from the wise members on here. I've thought about it and if i can get a settlement for £500 i'll probably just settle..Thanks
  8. This is the CPR i want to post today..any opinions appreciated..aso do i need to post a copy to the court?

  9. Statement of Defence 1. Firstly, it is admitted that the defendant signed a tenancy agreement in relation to the property at Flat 13 South Mews, Buxton, Derbyshire, SK17 6GE, United Kingdom in approximately December 2012 as a student with his friend (co-tenant) for a tenancy to start in September 2013. The defendant is happy to respond to this address. The sole purpose of the tenancy agreement was to enable the defendant to attend the University of Derby’s sub campus in Buxton to study a BA Honours and the property in question was advertised as a student property. The estate agent represent
  10. Hi guys in the end..I rang MCOL yesterday and now were given contradicting final date..22nd..so I have posted my defence yesterday 1st class recorded to the courts..and the defendant. I believe this is the right practice? This is the final defence I sent..any opinions appreciated. I wanted to ask..the CPR18 that you gave steam, can the claimant refuse to answer my questions on it?
  11. Thanks Steam, well I tried to take out how much I could but I feel some points I need to say really. I appreciate your feedback as per point 7 so I may take that out. I'm going to post it on 17th so that i've done it pretty last minute
  12. Hi thanks CitizenB for confirming that. Well I have an audio recording of the phone call to MCOL if they try and give me the wrong date. I've started reading the CAG resources and it's some really useful stuff! Especially call recording. I'll have to start being more abrupt and recording people. I've tried to make the defence less thick and more to the point. Let me know what you think of this please guys and girls: . Statement of Defence Firstly it is admitted that the defendant signed a tenancy agreement in relati
  13. This is the defence i have written..i took what you said steam on board but added my own views..perhaps am wrong and you seem more experienced on here so i'd value your opinions..My mum said I may have been a bit verbose so any help would be appreciated. Statement of Defence 1. Firstly it is admitted that the defendant signed a tenancy agreement in relation to the property at Flat 13 South Mews, Buxton, Derbyshire, SK17 6GE in approximately December 2012 as outlined by the claimant.

  14. MCOL says I have until 21st June to reply? Would that work out right I suppose its as there was one bank holiday.
  15. Will scan in the gurantor form, have found it too. Can anyone advice further what i should add/put in the defence then? Thanks
  16. Thanks brownguy! I'm just waiting to speak to MCOL now to confirm the date. I have found some deposit forms and rang the DPS, the DPS state that the £300 deposit was disputed as the estate agent put a claim in for rent arrears and won the £300.00. Should this not be deducted from the landlords claims/costs as she had made no mention of this?
  17. Okay great. In regards to the DPS part of this, I tried to call them today but seems they're not open on weekends so I have emailed them. If they confirm the DPS deposit wasn't protected..what do I need to add to the defence? I plan on calling them too on Monday. And as I filed on the 25th of May when does that give me from the AOS (25th may) ? Let me know thanks
  18. Your Name Your Address IN THE XXXXXXXXX county court CLAIM NO: Date: BETWEEN: XXXXXXXXXX Claimant and XXXXXXXXXXX Defendant PART 18 REQUEST FOR FURTHER INFORMATION To: XXXXXXXXXX (claimant) Please answer the following questions: 1: Is the property currently vacant? 2: Has the property been used by the Landlord or let to anyone else during the tenancy in question? 3: Please provide copies of both tenancy documents and guarantor forms alongside deposit protection scheme proof that you are stating you hold TAKE NOTICE TH
  19. Yes am going to send the CPR you sent me+defennce copies in the post this week (monday/tuesday.)
  20. Also in regards to the DPS deposit I have been doing some searching with my guarantor and apart from the mention of this in the tenancy there is no Deposit ID. i've done some investigatiion and apparently even without the deposit ID you can search using the address/tenacy start date and surname. No matter if i put the incorrect surname and the right surname in there database states it finds no record of the deposit- A deposit matching your search cannot be found or is not protected. Please contact your Agent / Landlord to confirm the status of your Deposit protection. An interesting call s
  21. So it is justified to charge that much interest? Okay well I plan on filing the defence sometime this week. Only issue i've had is that I didn't write down my GOV gateway number as did it on my phone and to reset it they want MCOL ID so no idea what either are..i assume i can just post a defence back 1st class recorded if online isn't an option right?
  22. My witnesses are peoplewho were then when the incident occurred etc I don't want to give too much away because Halfords are watching this thread and perhaps their legal team too but i'll be using Nissan Huddersfield's written email reports and for one other to name a few a written email report on the car's mechnical report too..are these kind of things, stuff I should be listing in the expert evidence section is what I am asking? Obviously the cost would be 0.00 and use I'd put for critique of their defence..
