  1. I bet for a lot of their claims it’s not worth sending a solicitor to the hearing, which makes me wonder why they bother taking legal action in the first place? I guess the more cases they lose the better. Judge said I’ll get a letter through the post with his decision and reasons so I’ll update the thread when I get it. Thanks to all who have helped me with my success today, I’ll be making a donation too.
  2. Well I walked in, the judge immediately said please have a seat. He then explained why the claimant had no representation (not cost effective, etc). He then said I've dismissed the case. He'd dismissed the case before I'd even said anything. His main reasoning was that there no original agreement, and so he couldn't say if a breach of contract had occurred. He also said there was no default notice, or statement of account as to how I owed the alleged £102. He agreed that the 3 bills they had provided were confusing as they were all different amounts. And then h
  3. Yes they've already said they aren't coming. But that on it's own doesn't guarantee I'll win?
  4. The day has come for this to be decided, 2pm today is the time it's listed for. Their witness statement landed on my door mat exactly 2 weeks ago, and theres nothing new in there, everything they've already sent before. They won't be coming so it'll be me and the judge. I'm just going to spend next couple of hours going over everything again and get my argument clear in my head. Any tips would be appreciated, and wish me luck!
  5. It doesn't specifically tell you where to send it, only that that is where the hearing will take place.
  6. When I send the witness statement, do I just send it to the main court address? County Court at Leeds, Leeds Combined Court Centre, The Courthouse, 1 Oxford Row, Leeds, LS1 3BG. Or does it have to be sent to anyone/department in particular? Can't find the information
  7. That’s great I’ll do that. Is my witness statement ok now? I’ll need to post it tomorrow to make sure they get it by 1st.
  8. I also would like to know what happens if I don't receive their witness statement by the 1st June? 1st of June is 2 weeks before the hearing and it's in the judges directions to serve at least 14 days before. Can I report them?
  9. Attempt 3! My witness statement: I, XXX, being the Defendant in this case state as follows; I make this Witness Statement in support of my defence dated 4th December 2017 and in response to the claimant’s claim dated 21st September 2017 which was submitted through County Court Business Centre. 1. It is my understanding that the claimant is an Assignee, a buyer of defunct, disputed or bad debts, which are bought en masse as portfolios at a much reduced cost to the amount claimed ...10p to 15p in the pound and which are already written off as capital loss and claimed against
  10. Is this any better? WITNESS STATEMENT OF (Defendant) --------------------------------------------------------- 1. I make this statement in support of my defence to the claim above. 2. This claim is in respect to termination fees under a contract to supply Land and Mobile Line Telephone Services to (Address) 3. The Particulars of Claim submitted by the claimant advises the contract was entered into on 22nd November 2012 but with no termination date, and with a balance of £102.67 4. Save insofar of any admittance it is accepted that a contractual relationship did once exi
  11. That is correct. But as you say I need to prepare my statement now so I can get it to them (court and claimant) by the 1st June. Hearing 15th June.
  12. Ok, well I found a good witness statement in another case (not telecoms), and I've tried to adapt it, but I might need your help to further fine tune it: My witness statement: I, XXX, being the Defendant in this case state as follows; I make this Witness Statement in support of my defence dated 4th December 2017 and in response to the claimant’s claim dated 21st September 2017 which was submitted through County Court Business Centre. 1. It is my understanding that the claimant is an Assignee, a buyer of defunct, disputed or bad debts, which are bought en masse as portfolios
  13. Thanks for clarifying Andy. If the notice of assignment of debt has "REPRINT" plastered all over it, can I mention this in my witness statement that it's not the original and could have been fabricated? I doesn't even have the Talk Talk account number on it, some other one, probably their own.
