  1. Actually after I wrote this and then researched it, I realised she’s told me incorrect info. Where do I go from here? I don’t really like the thought of it hanging over my head, never knowing if they’ll apply to have it lifted. Bearing in mind they’ve already been down this route before
  2. Last entry is my defence on 28/4/21 I’ve spoken to Northampton just this minute, it was never transferred to Southampton. I must have imagined that had happened I did managed to get them to tell me that they’ve heard nothing from SM or SW, and at this point the claim will be stayed. SM/SW can ask for the stay to be lifted by paying the court and applying to do this. They have 4 months from the date of my defence to do so? Which I never knew. After 4 months, the life of the claim is over
  3. Ok, I’m back for some more advice on this. As mentioned before, I sent a CPR 31.14 to SM/Court, and received confirmation from the court that it had been received. Both had proof of postage obtained at the time, which was the 28/4/21. I received a letter from the court, stating that they had sent instructions to SM on the 29/4/21 giving them 28 days to tell the court how they wish to proceed. I have heard nothing, although I appreciate it’s only just past the 28 day deadline, and possibly the court has a backlog. I’ve tried contacting the court, although I’ve just noted that the last letter came from Northampton Court and not Southampton (where it was assigned on the small tracks path) Online there is no further update to the case after I sent my defence on 28/4/21 Do I continue to wait it out? I’d really like to know if they’ve progressed with this, or hopefully not, given that some of the debt is from a previous case that was struck out. Also part of the debt is out of time. SM did contact me to ask me to arrange to pay the £4882.20, which I ignored given that this figure was wrong, and as advised, it was them fishing for me to pay the alleged outstanding debt Important to note that my defence was sent on the 28/4/21 and I received court correspondence on 29/4/21 so I’m hoping this means that they’re not hugely behind. Obviously I’m praying for it to be struck out, but even if they recalculated the debt, I would have thought I would have heard before now, if only from SM offering to reduce the debt
  4. Thanks They’ve just emailed as well, this ones from uksearch, but we all know they’re one and the same. I’ll be reading up, but obviously I’m hoping they don’t reply by the end of the month and it gets stayed. Not sure I’m going to be that lucky this time, but I would be interested to know if these two pieces of correspondence would be viewed by the court as them trying to settle this informally
  5. CIVIL ENFORCEMENT LTD CASE DISCONTINUED PROCEEDINGS I didn’t post about my claim form initially as there is enough helpful information on this forum for me to have proceeded the start of this claim by myself. Yesterday, on the last day that CEL had to submit documents to the court for the hearing, they have written to myself and the court cancelling the claim. Thanks to the forum for their never ending support and advice on private penalty charges. This is the second time I’ve ‘won’ against a PPC who have subversively attempted to extort parking charges when I was lawfully parked. This time I parked in a hotel car park, which I registered my registration number with the receptionist, only to find later that they either didn’t enter the registration number correctly, or they didn’t register it at all. Anyhow, ME-1 CEL-0
  6. That seems a reasonable point. @dx100uk Just to confirm what I have done so far. I’ve sent a CPR 31.14 to SM, with proof of postage obtained. And I have filled in the blanks on the defence, and will update the case online. I haven’t clicked send yet, I wanted to ensure I have it in order before I commit. After I’ve sent it, I guess I wait for the bills to come back and the case to be heard?
  7. I’ll call the court tomorrow, to check about my ex claim form. He wouldn’t have received it as he doesn't live here. I didn’t realise we’d have to both do AOS and defence. I’ve sent my CPR 31.14 off, I’ll make sure he does as well. I would really appreciate help in drawing up the defence if you’re able to. It would be good to send it with appropriate wording thank you
  8. Two claim forms in two envelopes were sent in the post. Both had both of us named as defendants. One with my name and address in left hand box, and his in the right hand box. The other envelope contained another claim form with the babes the alternative way round. Hope that makes sense
  9. We both got a claim form, which we are both named on jointly as defendants, not separate claim forms with individual names on each
  10. Yes in joint names still. Sorry I thought id removed the personal details, I’ll be more careful
  11. Dear Sir, Re: Southern Water Services v xxxxxxxxx Case No:XXXXXXXX CPR 31.14 Request On 5th April 2021 I received the Claim Form in this case issued by you out of the Northampton County Court Business Centre. I confirm having returned my acknowledgement of service to the court in which I indicate my intention to contest all of your claim. Please treat this letter as my request made under CPR 31.14 for the disclosure and the production of a verified and legible copy of each of the following documents mentioned in your Particulars of Claim: 1: the agreement. You will appreciate that in an ordinary case and by reason of the provisions of CPR PD 16 para 7.3, where a claim is based upon a written agreement, a copy of the contract or documents constituting the agreement should be attached to or served with the particulars of claim and the original(s) should be available at the hearing. Further, that any general conditions incorporated in the contract should also be attached. 2: A copy of all bills relating to the date range in the particulars of the claim 14/01/14 to 23/07/20 Although your claim is for a sum which is not more than £10,000.00 and will in all likelihood be allocated to the small claims track for determination upon my delivering a defence, at this moment in time I have not delivered my defence and the case has not been allocated to a track. In consequence the provisions of CPR 27(2) are of no effect and you should not seek to avoid compliance with your CPR 31 duties by claiming otherwise You should ensure compliance with your CPR 31 duties and ensure that the documents I have requested are disclosed at your earliest convenience. Your CPR 31 duties extend to making a reasonable and proportionate search for the originals of the documents I have requested, the better for you to be able to verify the document's authenticity and to provide me with a legible copy. Further, where I have requested a copy of a document, the original of which is now in the possession of another person, you will have a right to possession of that document if you have mentioned it in your case. You must take immediate steps to recover and preserve it for the purpose of this case. Where I have mentioned a document and there is in your possession more than one version of that same document owing to a modification, obliteration or other marking or feature, each version will be a separate document and you must provide a copy of each version of it to me. Your obligations extend to making a reasonable and proportionate search for any version(s) to include an obligation to recover and preserve such version(s) which are now in the possession of a third party. In accordance with CPR 31.15© I undertake to be responsible for your reasonable copying costs incurred in complying with this CPR 31.14 request. If you are unable to comply with this request and believe that you will never be able to comply with this request please confirm this in your response. I’ll draw up my defence later, but are you saying they can’t go after the debt from the first claim. That being anything up to and including 11/12/18.
  12. No @Andyorch different amounts, different date ranges, although they overlap, so some of the debt was covered in the previous claim
