About Me


  1. What defendant address should be used on Small Claims form in deposit dispute case where the landlord/landlady lives abroad? That is what address to use in the case of non-resident landlord, without any remaining property, or any other address in UK? In the end I put the rented property address because it was the Landlord last known UK address. I also put the Letting Agency as joint defendant as the deposit money are in their safekeeping but they refuse to release it unless court orders them to do. I used the rented Property address because: 1) the Landlord used to
  2. At the start of the year we had a new bathroom fitted. We purchased all the furnishings so the quote was for labour only. Due to my wife being allergic to dust it was agreed that the fitting would take place whilst we was on holiday. 75% of the labour charge has been paid to him to date On our return home we was shocked to see our new bathroom. The quality of work in our opinion is below standard, fittings haven't been fitted correctly, damaged has occured to several furnishings, we have had a leak going through our living room ceiling and a second leak on the outside wall due to incorr
  3. Dear All I would like some advice upon whether to pursue a claim for compensation against BT. Briefly back in February I accepted an offer to transfer my phone line and broadband from Virgin Media to BT. As part of my original acceptance of BT's offer I had paid a year line rental upfront at the time of order. Within a couple of days Virgin Media persuaded me to stay by dramatically reducing my monthly payments significantly below what BT had offered. I then followed BT's procedures and cancelled the order, well within the 14 days "cooling off" period. As by end of May
  4. Hi, I have searched the forums for a couple of hours trying to get my head around the next step to take in reference to my letter titled: "Notice of Allocation to the Small Claims Track (Hearing)". Copy of letter [ATTACH=CONFIG]59738[/ATTACH] The case is regarding a landlord who took close to 2,000GBP without a signed contract in place and refused to refund my money. I never received the room or anything in return. Question I have (Sorry if they seem obvious, I haven't been to court before and I have searched for a while trying to find the answers) 1) Is this ca
  5. Hello everyone and apologies for the long post. I have dual fuel from E.ON and was recently forced to move home. I called E.ON and informed them of the move, thinking that my tariff was going to move with me. When I received the first bill at the new address I discovered that I had been put on their standard tariff without any warning. I called E.ON to complain and ask to be put back on the tariff that I had signed up for, but I was told that it's "not possible". Naturally I took my complaint to the energy ombudsman which ,disappointingly, came back with the following: Needl
  6. Hi all, Many many thanks for taking the time to read and hopefully help. I found a previous thread posted by someone else and the advice within it was great so I thought I'd ask for your opinions, help and advice. I found a car on eBay a couple of weeks ago, looked good, nice condition and so on 'engine as sweet as a nut' was one of the comments. I won the auction and arranged to travel to Birmingham to pick it up. The listing was then removed from eBay, I had set up a new account, was trying to sell my car as well and eBay suspended the account due to wanting evidence I owned t
  7. Hi, We have been right through the Small Claims process due to a badly built fence, all the way to bailiff leaving a letter, and now the defendant has applied to have the judgement set aside. We don't have long to respond as the court date is a week on monday (at our request due to some other personal circumstances). We are really unsure what evidence we need to supply at this stage and struggling to find helpful advice. This is what he's put on his form: section 3: What order are you asking the court to make and why? To set aside a judgement against my company. The work
  8. Morning all, Apologies for the long post but I am desperately seeking some help/advice from those of you in the know about SCC and DCAs. I have been attempting to defend a claim with Arrow for an old MINT credit card which I have but think I may have shot myself in the foot and wondered if there's any way I can come back. Unfortunately, I buried my head in the sand regarding quite a few debt issues I had in my teens/early twenties so don't have the original paperwork for any of this. I will give a brief summary of the events so far:- 5th February 2014 - I received a claim form
  9. I will try and be succinct, promise! Please ignore issue of eligibility for repayment/compensation, as Lloyds have already accepted this. I initially contacted Lloyds in October '13 asking if I'd had PPI as I simply couldn't remember. That's my bad, I know, but I'm not good now with long term memory. They acknowledged receipt and said they'd look into it and I heard from them on the phone once when they called and asked lots of questions about what my credit card was for, etc. At the end of November with an offer of £630. They said that due to passage of time they no longer had detailed r
  10. Hi i wonder if you wonderful people would be able to help, my legal knowledge does not stretch this far. Last year we were sued by a customer in the small claims court which we lost.We had a date with which we were supposed to pay the claimant but he avoided our payment. I informed the court on every level and wrote and called them several times to inform them we had tried to pay. Eventually it went back to court and the judge said we had to pay within 7 days, we were given bank details and paid the amount. In the original case the judge said that when payment was made we were allowed to recov
  11. Hiya, I was wondering if anyone knows whether the Scottish legal system allows for you to lodge a small claims by sending all the relevant documentation by post rather than going to the Sheriff Court in person? Thanks in advance.
  12. Hello all I am not sure I can be helped here but any advice would be great please. I am a shareholder/leaseholder of a flat in a block of seven. The ltd company is limited by shares and right now has just one director. who's flat is directly beneath mine. In January 2013, while my flat had been empty for a month or two while I was working away, there was a leak which damaged the ceiling below and the cost of repairs came in at around £1,500 which I paid from my own pocket. A month or so later, it emerged that the damage may well not have been caused by my flat but as a resu

  14. Hi, I really hope someone is able to help me! My mum took out a new contract with Vodafone in November 2011 and a few months into the contract she started having problems with the handset. She followed the normal process and took the handset back to the store and they tried fixing the phone by resetting and updating firmware etc, however she was still getting problems with the handset. The handset was then sent off for repair, but yet again it still didn't fix the problems. Whilst all of this was going on my mum was diagnosed with Cancer and had to have major surgery followed by recovery
  15. Hi, I'm after a bit of help regarding a Small Claim I lodged (up here in Scotland) for an implement of an obligation against Dodge (as in the car manufacturer). To cut a long story short they carried out some work via a manufacturers safety recall on my vehicle, which obviously i had no choice about getting done. Part of this was to update the software on the ECU which caused a conflict with the central locking. Basically they admitted the programme wasn't compatible with all models of ECU but wouldn't remove the software because it was part of the safety recall that was carried out. They
  16. Hi, I used to be with Budget for my Car Insurance. When I first started the cover, I was 'fined' £20 for not returning a form I was never sent. Eventually and after costly phone calls, I got the form, sent it back, but never received the £20 back I was told I would. I recently sent them a letter stating that I wanted £20 plus the cost of calls to them for their mistake. The total was £25.37. I was phoned by someone in their complaints department who promised me the money within a few days. 2 months on, I'm still waiting. I want to send them one more letter before I take this to the
  17. Hi Apologies if Im in the wrong place but going crossed eyed looking at info! I am currently on JSA (Contribution Based) after losing my job 6mths ago, so I would like to know if I can get Legal Aid for taking an ex friend to court? I lent my "best friend" £490 to go on holiday with me nearly 5 years ago. She does not dispute that she owes me this sum and despite promising to pay me back, she still hasn't! She just keeps making excuses and is now ignoring me. I can prove that I paid for the holiday, and have got evidence that i have made repeated requests for payment. Due to my
  18. I have claimed against a property agent for return of my 'non refundable' holding deposit in the small claims court. After mediation, which has failed, I have understood that the agent has three things points that he will make: 1. that I knew it was a non-refundable deposit 2. that he took the property off the market and 'lost' potential clients 3. that when he subsequently let it he had to accept £20 a week less in rent. My points against these are: 1. I paid the deposit by phone, he emailed the receipt which revealed it was non-refundable if I did not take up the tenancy, but r
  19. We took Halfords to SCC regarding a faulty sat nav purchased 18months ago which they refuse to budge on offering repair/replacement. Halfords PLC issued an acknowledgment of service on 13/12/2011. They still haven't responded as of today which is over the 28days stipulated. I was just wondering, is it OK to request judgement or do I have to wait 28 working days? This has been really dragging on & just want to get it sorted - hence the question. Any advice appreciated. M
  20. Sorry if this is in the wrong section but I have scanned the list to see where it could go, looked like tghis was the closest option. In a massive mess. I stupidly gave my partner thousands of pounds, when we were together to 'look after' (I trusted him, as you do). I was scared I'd spend it. I gave it to him. he knew it was mine and that I was not giving it to him. Now we have broken up and he is heartbroken and resentful and all the rest, he is on drugs and will not give it back, he has also spent half of it. Friends have told me to go to 'the small claims court', but do I
  21. Hi. I've just requested Judgement in a Small Claims Case I have against a Government Department for non-payment of a debt to me. How long should I expect it to take for Judgement to be made and issued through Moneyclaim and Northampton County Court? Agi
  22. Hello I am new to the forum and not sure where to post - did read through - but still not 100% sure. My question relates to taking small claims action after insurance ombudsman has not found in my favour. I think I know what the process is but would be intersted in any view on likely success / court view is ombusman has already said no. Many thanks and happy to re post once I know where The Duke
  23. We agreed to rent a house with a £500 holding deposit based on moving in on a certain date. Just days before the move in date, we called the agency to check all was ok and were told that there was a serious problem. The previous tenants had refused to leave and court papers had been served to get them evicted. This meant that we weren't able to move in. We tried to come to a compromise with the agency about a new date but they were useless at keeping us informed about the progress of the court case and they kept moving the move in date further and further back. As the end of our previous
  24. I wonder if you can please help me, hope im in the right part of the site. I have been working as a decorator and handy man. I started a job for a company before christmas, they were going to pay me to pain the inside and outside of their offices. In december they gave me a £250 deposit most of which I would use to buy pain and other bits and bobs. I paid for them before the vat went up to save a few pounds. Due to the snow the building work was not finished and so when i was due to start in january i could not. I managed to get another job but after two weeks they were still not rea
  25. Hi guys, This is the issue: I put my car up for auction on eBay, and it 'sold'. However, the winning bidder failed to pay or make contact after issuing several invoices and emails. After a few days another eBay member (with only a few ratings/transactions, all purchases) stated that he had an emergency during the final hour of the auction and never got to place his intended bid. If the sale fell through could he make an offer. I said if the winner continued in failing to go through with his contractual obligation that I would relist the car with bin (at the previous sale price) and let him
