  1. So would a simple letter with the breakdown and details of where to send the payment, with a copy of the judges decision be enough as a starting point?
  2. Hi Andy, Sorry snow got in the way so didn't get chance to reply till now... No haven't sent the solicitor a bill of costs, would it be to the solicitor or claimant? Is this simply a letter outlining what the costs are for along with a copy of the order? The only bills of costs I have seen have been claimant ones that are very detailed and used for cost negotiation? Thanks
  3. Hi Sorry for the delay in updating the thread. It was Stafford. So the claimant was told to pay the costs within 14 days, this hasn't happened. I have read on another thread that we would need to request a General Order pursuant to CPR 44.3.1 & 2a How would you go about doing this? Thanks in advance, I have yet to figure it out?
  4. Hi Guys, I wanted to update you guys with the following: Attended court this morning, the Judge looked through the information and asked about the bills that had been submitted and offered the following judgement (I will try and remember most of it) He believed there was a contract in place and that a contract was entered into He believed the debt was correctly assigned to the company, and that the company was able to bring about the action. He believed the assignment letters and pre-action letters had been sent and received by the defendant. The claimant relied on terms of contract, the contract has not been provided so therefore it was fatal to the claim. The 3 months bills that had been submitted did not show how the debt had been incurred, he would have needed to see a full statement of account for him to rule if it was correct or not and the claimant had not provided enough information. He dismissed the OFCOM termination statement as he couldn't see any termination fees on any of the documents provided. Pretty much dismissed everything else in the witness statement. Dismissed claim with costs awarded to us. So would like to thank you guys for your help and also the information provided previously from the threads I had read while submitting the defence. I will certainly be donating and hope it helps other people.
  5. ok excellent, Many thanks will update you if there is any further developments.
  6. Thanks Andy, Yes some googling has brought up the 'Mckenzie friend'. How do we inform the court I would also like to attend? Should it have been something that would have been part of the witness statement?
  7. Witness statement has now been submitted, along with a copy of the original CPR request. Going to now start to prepare for the court date. One question, am I allowed to attend with my partner who is the defendant? would it be possible to help represent her or would she lead? Witnesses was put down as 1 on the directions questionnaire? Is it a case of speak when spoken to? Thanks!
  8. Hi, Please find enclosed a draft WS. any advice or input would be greatly received. In the Claim No..... BETWEEN JC International Acquisition LLC -and- (Defendant) -------------------------------------------------------- WITNESS STATEMENT OF (Defendant) --------------------------------------------------------- 1. I make this statement in support of my defence to the claim above and include relevant evidence and exhibits. 2. This claim is in respect to termination fees under a contract to supply Land and Mobile Line Telephone Services to (Address) 3. The witness statement supplied by the claimant advises the contract was entered into on 13th June 2011 and was terminated on the 24th January 2013 with a balance of £166.75 4. I do not recognise any of the account details and have no knowledge of this account. 5. I do not recall having received a Notice of Assignment, as stated by the Claimant and despite my request for a copy of said document, under CPR 31.14, the Claimant has failed to provide me with such to date. Therefore the Claimant is to provide strict proof to: (a) show how the Defendant has entered into a Agreement/ Contract; and (b) show how the Defendant has reached the amount claimed for; and © show how the Claimant has the legal right, either under statute or equity to issue a claim; 6. While I resided at (the address) I was married, and it was my husband at the time that dealt with all services and bills. 7. I left the matrimonial home on the 01/01/2012 and was unable to access anything after this time 8. Without the original agreement I cannot advise if this agreement has been taken out fraudulently. 9. Pages 1 – 6 showing recreated monthly bills, the bills dated 20/12/2012 and 20/01/2013 appear to show the exact same itemised call lists but with different dates which would be incredibly unlikely and these may have been generated with no relevance to the actual account. 10 Subject to the above, should the alleged amount claimed include an early termination charge(s) amounting to the total balance of the remaining contract, OFCOM guidance clearly states that any Early Termination Charge, that is made up of the entire balance of the remaining contract, is unlikely to be fair, as it fails to take into account the fact that the provider no longer has to provide and pay for their service. 11 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.
  9. Hi dx Thanks for the assistance. I have now uploaded all the files into a single PDF. I have been looking at other witness statements, most of the threads I have found up till now have not actually gone this far.... Will do a bit more reading and look at drafting something up. I do have a current question, which is relating to proof of her living elsewhere for a year before this debt was accrued. Will this add to the defence or will it simply muddy the argument that the agreement was simply not known about? Witness statement ML.pdf
