  1. Not had it yet - are they pretty snappy once allocated to a court or does it take months for that process too? Thanks in advance for your attention and assistance. A
  2. Evening all, Just a bit of an update - been allocated to Southampton court, not seen anything else from the courts and I'm not in for the next few weeks, though i'm keeping an eye on MCOL in the meantime... Should I have anything specific prepared shortly while I've the time to figure it out? Thanks, I'm researching it around CAG as I go, but am unsure what form the WS and such should take if I've not heard anything from the courts service? Thanks Regards A
  3. Well I followed the advice to show willing and offer the option. They[the mediation service] called me to confirm that it can go ahead. I answered their questions, stating when asked that I believed that I did not owe the claimed amount, and that my defense was, I thought, fairly clear. They asked if I thought it was owed at all, I said not to my mind as they'd not sent me any contract or agreement documents that stated I owed it. The mediation service op said it sounds like the mediation service was not suitable in this case and so it'd be put back to local court [in this case, Southampton] for them to look over it. Bit frustrating but I guess the idea is to have worked through all reasonable steps to avoid court.
  4. well I did as advised, mediation was suggested and it took till the mediators called me to set up that it was clear mediation wasn't a goer, so the question is what's the next steps they'll likely take? I assume it'll be a court date, but what's the process for defending myself ? Do I need legal rep and all that? Thanks in advance for all your help with this - I think the leeches would have had a far easier time without your assistance and confidence. Regards A
  5. It's still within deadline [26th and will be away today] but didn't want to waste their time and efforts on mediation if it's futile. Thanks, I'll have it away and with the court, and a copy to the claimant today. Thanks again. A
  6. Morning all, Have finally received my DQ from the court, dated ages ago but have been working away awhile. Anyway, I've only got a paper copy, but if I've still not received a copy of the agreement/contract from Lowells' proving any terms that they're claiming I'm bound to. Should I still tick yes to mediation, knowing full well that it won't succeed without this being seen in good time to prepare an argument beyond the obvious? Thanks in advance - I'll fill it in as indicated on the rest of the site, but am just aware that it's a waste of the courts/mediators time... Thanks A
  7. Good Afternoon all, Just received a copy of Lowell's directions questionnaire and as yet haven't seen anything from the court direct. Is this normal practice, or should I have received some other paperwork from the court too? I checked on the MCOL service and it doesn't seem to reference the papers that Lowell have sent me at all... It's been a few weeks and I'm hoping that I haven't missed anything important to defend my case with... Thanks again in advance for all your assistance and patience with this. Yours A
  8. Well I put the defense in as seems to have been done by many others [thanks Dx1100uk - helpful search terms to look for] and heard back from the courts that it's in the claimants hands for the next step. Assuming lowell want to take it further, what're the next steps as the letter only says that the court'll let me know when it happens...? Thanks again for all your collective help with this - I know it's probably very routine for you, but it's been stressful as all hell on top of life. Yours A
  9. Afternoon all, Could I please ask for advice upon the following draft? Thanks, I appreciate it's later than desired, but i've just got home to a reply letter claiming they don't have to provide a copy of the contract, and printing out another summary without any indication of what it's for [services etc?] Thoughts please - thanks in advance - this is somewhat stressing seeing as they've sat on it till today -
  10. Good morning all, Just a quick ask if there's a normal structure of the defence? Have sent the CPR 31.14 a week and a bit ago, but not heard anything from them at all. Assuming I've got to get it submitted before 1600 or thereabouts today to ensure that it isn't entered as default? Thanks in advance. A
  11. I didn't have a poor history and would always pay when requested. From all the information I can find said it was an 18 month contract. I did ask and they said they couldn't pause the contract without an address until I moved, so I continued paying to give me the month to find a new place... Otherwise you've got the facts of it there. Thanks again Yours A
  12. Yeah, I've moved since, and haven't taken TalkTalk with me - I was under the impression that the contract was over by date, and seeing as they've completely confused me with their data control, I wasn't inclined to go again with them. Does the contract restarting seem sufficient to be worth defending? Thanks again in advance. Yours A
  13. Not while I was there - It was transferred, presumably to a new supplier, about a month after I'd moved out of the flat, but rather than offering me the choice to transfer service to another location for the month left on the contract [as I had thought], they just cancelled the service altogether. I had been required to move house a few times, and all along, taken the service with me, under the impression that the contract wasn't renewed, merely continued. But when I did finally have to move out due to my redundancy, I kept the service going, and paid for, for so long as they carried on the service - at no point did I call them to actually cancel the service At the time, I did inform them of my redundancy and resultant likelihood of a moving house and was advised to continue paying for the notice period. Not supplier at that time as the service [barring the data breach shortly before moving] was excellent.
  14. I'm guessing you mean the new supplier at the flat? I don't know who they are - I had moved out by this point and, other than continuing to pay the months' notice period as I had been advised, had no further contact with the flat, or agency [beyond having given them a forwarding address if required]. Lowell solicitors are the company that are acting for Lowell portfolio 1 ltd and appear to have bought the claim. Sorry If I've irritated - I genuinely don't know who the ''new supplier'' was as I was not living there any more- It did seem strange that they'd assume to just cancel my contract without any contact or confirmation that I wanted it cancelled. I'll put the acknowledgement of service thing in now, and print/post the papers off as advised tomorrow morning [a spare 5 mins while the post office is open to do the admin] Thanks again. A
  15. Thanks for all this - I don't know what slamming is but I assume it's not legit? I had two home moves, and one moving out altogether [East Grinstead--> Bognor 1, Bognor 1--> Bognor 2, then Bognor 2 was cancelled] both of which seemed to go off without a hitch, and certainly didn't require any engineer visits to incur costs. The last move, wherein I had to move out and requested the end of service, was the one that seemed to throw issues up as previously it was all running smoothly. [following that I didn't have a supplier as the building i went into already had one, however, I also didn't request cancellation at all as previously explained.] I haven't yet filed the acknowledgement of service as I was worried I wouldn't be able to defend it with so little information [and no legal background] Do I gather from the tone of replies that this is a defensible case? Thanks again - A
