  1. Well I really don't understand your point about sticking with them when they have done so much wrong. Especially if they have incorrect readings and high rates. Infact I know from my SAR documents that if I had stayed with them they would have had the power to employ any debt collector and obtain whatever warrants they wanted to justify their actions. This is a massive own goal. Anyhow, I think you should switch immediately and then it's simply a disputed bill. They will enforce debt collection which will eventually require them to out the whole case before a judge. To do this all their inaccurate bills will get scrutinised and any other documents. If you've been paying you have nothing to worry about. If they've made a mistake, even if it's small they have everything to fear.
  2. Yes. And I think their own behaviour leaves much to be desired. They have been aware of my inaccurate bills and readings for 2 years. They have been aware that the first bills were produced 8 months after the meter was removed, they have been aware that the previous tenant left 3 years prior and had documents on file at least a year before execution of the warrant. Because of this I think they should also be reported to the SRA as they've acted like a dca and continually harassed me for two years. The SAR documents have a date stamped in the corner which shows its when the file was completed and handed to Wilkin. Npower confirmed that was the date the file was passed to wilkin. Therefor my SAR is incomplete because it only comprises whatever the Npower guy could collate to pass to Wilkin. Wilkin knew all the holes in their clients case yet continued with harassment for payment.
  3. Ok I will jot down some notes, compose an email and then call them tomorrow I will post on here once I've spoken to them.
  4. Bank fodder I completely agree that it's had a detrimental effect on me and my family and also my business. Yes my credit rating was destroyed completely. The trespass, the court costs and the stress of writing to them for two years has been difficult to deal with. If it wasn't for CAG I would have been completely lost. That's why I haven't responded to them yet and a Tomlin order is a good start but I think we can all push for more. It was stayed in court until tomorrow so I need to write to court to tell them we can't agree.
  5. But I think that my claim against them was strong and they wouldn't drop a claim for £17000 if they felt they had a chance of winning. If they've had a chance to review the catalogue of errors and breaches committed it is only rational that they want to bring an end to proceedings realising they could lose. In which case I have a dilemma. Walk away happy or continue to fight them as there are a multitude of customers that have been subjected to all manner of stress and bullying behaviour from Npower. Many such cases unfortunately get dropped before going to court and therefore Npower continue to impose deemed contracts and illegal warrants on the average joe blogs.
  6. Form n279 to be signed by both parties and submitted to court to bring an end to proceedings
  7. Npower now want to drop proceedings and have offered a hands down agreement. What advice would you give? while I'm happy to walk away I still feel that there are many consumers out there suffering at the hands of this bullying organisation and they need to be shamed in court.
  8. Have you switched supplier or still with Npower ?
  9. So I've submitted my defence and also submitted my evidence of incorrect readings to wilkin chapman. It's stayed until early December so once I hear further I will update here. Fingers crossed. Relying predominantly on gas act 1986 for billing disputes. If anybody has experience in this field I will be obliged to hear.
  10. Mrsshe, is this still ongoing? I have a similar issue with Npower and you can read my thread. http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/search.php?searchid=6188090 A few thoughts, Why don't you switch to another supplier and sort out whatever billing dispute you have with Npower after that? Why are you still with them. You can write a complaint and get a complaint number and switch to a smaller provider. They won't be able to block you if you go through that process. What kind of contract are you on? Fixed term or standard variable or deemed ? What are the rates? What is the consumption (you will be able to track this from your own records or paperwork or photos) Is it still dual fuel ? I'm due in court with them soon and not at all worried, neither should you be. They are bullies and you should stand up to them. I'll point you towards some legal case law in due course.
  11. Hello, Im really interested in the outcome of this case as SECUS pretty much did the same to me around the same period. Did your application to court and claim against Npower succeed?
  12. Yes I have contacted the court and they've only just received the papers from the previous court. They are in process of writing an order for Directions Questionaire to be submitted by the Date of 15th September. Just to be on the safe side I will send the acknowledgement today. They've advised that for counter claim just enclose a brief letter but I will send for N9B and leave the amount open. I'll be claiming for Trespass at least as I am not convinced of the legality of the warrant they used to enter the property. Apart from the suspect meter reads, estimated erroneous billing and back billing of course.
  13. The letter from solicitor states "you have until 27 August to file and serve your defence. If this is to take the format of that enclosed with your application, then please provide a copy with a signed statement of Truth to ourselves and the court. But I think at this stage I should be fine just sending the acknowledgement and then have a further 14 days, i.e till about 7th Sept to file the defence and counter claim. Is that right?
