  1. Ok, thank you so much for your assistance with this. Will keep you posted on how it goes.
  2. Spoke to litigation team and explained the amount was now incorrect and that shulmans reduced the statue barred element, also explained recent bill was in the process of being reduced due to single occupancy and it being charged for 2 bed instead of 1 bed. Said I'd like to avoid court process and set up a payment plan but don't know how much I actually now owe them. Guy on phone explained it's in the process of bill being adjusted. Asked about claim as claim amount is now wrong, was told they would amend the amount on their reply to defence and continue the process. But he said wouldn't be a problem to sort it out of court as I was keen to make a payment plan. Mediation and tomlins order was mentioned as options.
  3. Just got off the phone with southern water. Explained the reduction in bill via shulmans and made a request to make payment. They refused and explained it had been passed over to their litigation team, and they're unable to discuss this matter or take payment as my account with them is now zero! They stated that litigations are aware the debt has been reduced but the debt has been passed over to uksearchltd, and that if I wish to make any payments I have to arrange it with them instead. They refused to comment on whether debt was sold, just said it was passed over. Have requested a bill and email to reflect my account being at £0.00
  4. That's what I was thinking... Shulmans have stated that they've recalculated balance to 22 November 2018. £3,119.98 Interest at £0.61 until judgement or sooner payment. Shulmans invite me to make full payment or to forward a reasonable offer of repayment for our clients consideration.
  5. Quick update. Just got in and have received alot of paper work from shulmans. Mainly southern water household charges scheme from years 2012 to present Also yearly bills and a few default notices, from 2009 to present as they don't have paperwork for prior years. My cpr request for "any other documents you intend to rely upon under the claim" was invalid under rule 31.14 as it wasn't stated in the particulars. " The request is entirely disproportionate and unreasonable at this stage". They provided all yearly bills. But stated in the annex as 1 April 2009 to 31 March 2009 (surley a typo) They have recalculated the balance on the claim and applied a credit of £2,304.07 for period upto 30 September 2012. In order to remove statute barred element. In addition the most recent bill has me charged for a 2 bedroom when infact this a 1 bed flat. Rang southern and they have amended that bill and last year's based on me being a single occupant.
  6. Ah ok, sorry am very much a noobie to all this. Thought I might have to expand on the accept or deny to the particulars
  7. Was wondering how to write that and include it in my defence?
  8. Getting somewhere with my defence, but before I post up on here to ask if it's ok, I just need a little help wording the following. When I received county court claim, I rang up southern water and explained that I hadn't received any bill and had now received court claim. The lady I spoke to said, they couldn't take any payments from me until the amount on the account had been zero'd as it's been passed onto there litigation team to deal with. I was given a phone number for this team but was hesitant to call it. I have since rang the number and it turns out to be uk search limited. No details were given over phone.
  9. Will have a look and start getting my defence ready Thank you again for advice
  10. Thank you so much for your help and advice In regards to the response pack sent with the claim, do i need to send it off aswell even tho i've acknowledged claim online? what should be my best way in moving forward with my defence?
  11. I have responded on MCOL website and have sent CPR 31:14 off as recorded delivery.
  12. On CPR 31:14 , do I remove bullet points 1 to 6 or 2 to 6 and add the request for all bills 2007 onwards and other relevant paperwork? Sorry if it seems like a silly question, I just don't wanna send it off and it be wrong
  13. Will get MCOL done in the morning and have CPR 31:14 hopefully all ready to post on Monday. Thank you for advice
