  1. Hi, My landlord is wanting to send estate agents round to value the property because he wants to put it on the market. He has not yet served me with a Section 21 notice so I have no idea when he is expecting me to vacate but I would have thought a valuation would be more realistic once the house is empty and after he can do some redecorating, etc to get it ready for selling. At the moment, we have been too stressed over searching for a new home and we have been having a mad declutter and we have half packed boxes everywhere and the housework has become less of a priority, so al
  2. Hi All, Thanks in advance for any help ! We received a claim from from our builder because we have withheld payment of the final instalment as he as breached his contract with us. He sent a claim form asking for the money to be paid (approx 1667.00). We are now trying to work out the counterclaim and having serious difficulties in understanding what to do. Any help appreciated. problem outlined here. (ignoring court fees and interest at the moment) Final installment withheld by us is 1667.00 BUT this value is incorrect as he is trying to charge us for mor
  3. I have a case with PRA, made a CCA request for information and deeds of assignment, they only write a letter to say they have requested for the information from OC and the deeds of assignment is a confidential information consisting of their business secret, but they agreed in the letter that they will bring it to the CCJ set aside hearing but they said they will blank out confidential info. What defence options do I have in this scenario ? No CCA request was honoured What happened in case the deeds has been altered as stated Also the fact that I have not been given oppor
  4. Good morning everyone! I wonder if anyone could kindly give me someadvice for my next move: Barclaycard refused my wife PPI when she was hospitalised in 2011 saying she didn’t have a policy. In 2013 we found out she DID have PPI, so of course setabout claiming it back, and finding out why we weren’t given the opportunity toclaim. Barclaycard made it clear, that any payments would payoff the balance on the account (£8K) and that the account would be closed. During this time we negotiated a reduced monthly rate of paying the account, infact this was by contin
  5. Dear All, I have a scenario here I would like to get your views on. Suppose in a county court X makes a claim against Y and in turn Y makes a counterclaim against X under Reference Z (I am assuming counter claims are under the same reference number) X now wishes to discontinue the claim against Y My question is simply, will the entire claim then discontinued under Reference Z including the counter claim If Z wishes to pursue the counter claim, will he need to file a new claim in the county court? X will be liable for Y costs - would there need to be a small claim made
  6. My landlord has submitted a claim and now I have a form for defense. I have been abused by the landlord over 4 years and last year I finally managed to have the council serve a notice for repairs which were done in the worst manner possible. I know the following: 1. I was never given details of my tenancy deposit being protected until now where I have seen them for the first time 4 years on. 2. The name on the claim form for the landlord is the wrong surname 3. The council requires a landlord to have a licence prior to submitting a section 21 and this was not done. 4. The court

  8. Hi all! I have been reading through alot of threads to gain info. We have a problem with a builder, who was supposed to do approx £27k of work on our house. I will keep details sketchy as I don't want to identify ourselves. he was a cowboy, didn't do the work as he was contracted to do (we had no written contract, but the Surveyor had specified what needed to be done and how and the quote referred to "all works as detailed in the surveyor;s report). To cut a long story short, he has had two attempts to fix the roof, and has only made it worse both times, and i
  9. I brought a car from honda in may 2004, it was a a ex show room car, and I was offered £1000 off the price of the car . How ever Honda finance increased their interest rate from 11.9% to 12.9% to get the cash back from the £1000 discount from the car. Also the copy of the consumer credit agreement I was given is unsigned by honda finance , so would i be correct in that its a unenforcable CCA cheekyone
  10. Hi, I'll try and keep this short and hope someone can offer advise. My son was a sub-contractor (plumber) on a large block of flats, the main contractor decided to remove all plumbers and appoint one company rather than several subbies. My son submitted his last invoice and should have been paid after 14 days, when he wasn't paid he tried phoning, then emailing and then texting the main contractor, all these were ignored, so eventually started a small claims against them for £1289. (he followed the correct process in issues letters, etc) The contractor has now submitted a c
  11. Hello, My landlord has informed me that Npower will be attending some time next week to fit a prepayment meter. However, where the current meter is, I have no access to. I live in a farmhouse ajacent to a farm and the meter is in a buildiing on the actual farm (which doesnt belong to me) which is on private ground an has a gate with a lock on it. How am I supposed to access it to put credit on it? Are they allowed to do this? Can I request that the meter be moved to the house? Thanks.

  13. Hi Guys, I hope someone can help i will try to keep it short and to the point, My LL did not put my deposit into a scheme which i only discovered when i tried to get my deposit back and he ignored i asked him if he had protected it and he then gave me £500 of it back keeping over £300 with no explanation. so I filed a claim against him through money claims on line, He has now issued a counter claim against me saying i left the house in a mess holes in the wall bins full etc etc a complete case of tit for tat but he has photos of damage behind front door (he is saying that i did it)which

  15. Will try and make this as short as possible. My son rented a house through a letting agent. Had loads of problems whist there, water leak in the kitchen, faulty boiler (serious problem) damp in a bedroom which caused mould growth, along with loads of other bits and pieces all of which they refused to repair even blaming him, saying things like the damp was because the bed was in the wrong place. In the end he moved. After he moved they sent him a letter asking him to pay for alsorts of things including things which where wrong when he moved in proven by photos supplied by them. Obvio
  16. Hi I'm hoping that someone can give me some advice please. Here's goes, a bit long winded! On Friday 21st June 2013, my friend and I attended a concert at a well known stadium. We had an altercation with another member of the public over a seat and this resulted in a lot of shouting and a drink being thrown (by me). Following the altercation in the stadium, my friend and I were asked to 'come out the back for a quick chat' by two male members of an outsourced security firm. A heated discussion between the 4 of us occurred and one of the security staff went to speak to some
  17. I was in a tenancy that ended back in July. After repeated, failed attempts to get the landlord to use the dispute service offered by the deposit protection company I had to start a small court claim to recover my deposit. Once the court claim started the landlord then agreed to use the dispute service (without informing me!) offered by the deposit company. However also the landlord issued a counter claim blaming me because she couldn't let the flat for a few weeks after I left, it says I didn't give her enough access to the flat so she is claiming a few weeks rent. I send a defence to counter
  18. Hi, First post and this site has grown huge since I last came on here so sorry if this is the wrong forum. I had a problem with a gas boiler repair and I ended up having to get another company (B) in to do the repair after the first company (A) failed after nearly three weeks with no hot water or central heating in Winter. (A) replaced the PCB without success. (B) also replaced the PCB and this worked. So my argument is that the PCB supplied by (A) is faulty. I have filed an acknowledgement of service and have been preparing my defence. I want to issue a counterclaim as company
  19. I have received a CCJ claim against myself from a past employer. I have responded to the letter on-line giving me 28days instead of 14, but I need more time to build a defence. The ressone for extra time is for information I never recived from my employer while with them. I have followed the ICO procedure under the data protection act for gaining this information, but it will take up to 40days to get back. Can I ask for more time from the court to do this as it is crusial to my counter claim.
  20. Hello, My current landlord served me a Section 21 notice that expires in two months time. However, my deposit is not currently protected so from what I have read, his section 21 notice is invalid. What I need to know is this: If he continues with action and makes a court date for the Section 21 notice, am I able to counter-claim for 3x deposit and return (or protection), as well as making the S21 void at a hearing? I need to know if there is any kind of monetary counterclaim ability in a Section 21 hearing as there is in a Section 8 hearing, because I am eager to counterclaim fo
  21. Hi I hope I am posting in the correct place. Just before Christmas I was issued with a county court claim from my childrens old school. I had refused to pay them the terms notice, due to issues we had had with the school and the education they had received for 18 months the did not pursue me for the money until I received the claim. I have filed a defence and also issued a counterclaim as I believe the school did not provide the services which we had paid for previously. I received a order from the court stating that the claim would be listed for trial and giving provisional date
  22. Hello, I am in the process of obtaining a judgement on debt. The Defendant has decided to defend the claim (most of which is false) and submit a counter-claim. I am about to submit my allocation form. Under the Civil Procedure Rules, I see that I can submit a "Reply to defence" and a "Reply to defence and counter-claim". Do these form two separate documents or one? Referring to 3.2 in the practise direction 15 of the CPR: 3.2 Where a claimant serves a reply and a defence to counterclaim, the reply and defence to counterclaim should normally fo
  23. Hoping for some advice on here. Below is a summary of what has happened to-date, that I have included in the Allocation Questionairre that I have received after the landlords solicitor counterclaimed against me. ( we have not submitted it yet as its due on 30th Dec). The landlord has no grounds as to why he has witheld our deposit apart from wanting to refresh the house, and has no inventory. We started on moneyclaim, but now costs seems to be going up and as the counterclaim is for £12,000, might be allocated to the fast track for which we could be liable for costs. Note that this was a high
