  4. Hi, I'm hoping someone can give me some advice. I have an old MBNA debt which I defaulted on in 2010. Since then I have religiously been making pro-rata payments up to and including this month. MBNA sold the debt to Aktiv Kapital who in turn sold it to PRA in 2014. I know that PRA have been receiving my payments because they sent me a letter towards the end of last year saying "...thank you for your ongoing commitment to the payment arrangement on your account". It goes on to say "....We would therefore like to make you aware that if it suits your current financial situation, y
  5. Ryanair has told lawyers acting for a woman claiming compensation that it will no longer accept the jurisdiction of the English courts, in a case that has raised concerns over air passenger delay rights. The claims management company acting for a woman known only as Ms Menditta, who claimed against the Dublin-based Ryanair after a delay in 2015, have been told by the airline that a clause in the airline’s terms and conditions requires disputes to be decided by the Irish courts. https://www.theguardian.com/business/2016/dec/09/ryanair-says-womans-delay-claim-must-go-through-i
  6. At present, High Court Enforcement agents are only able to enforce judgments if they relate to non consumer credit debts and have a value of over £600. Judgements relating to consumer credit debts (typically, a debt relating to a bank loan, credit card debt, catalogue debt or any other finance agreement) may only be enforced by a County Court Bailiff. The High Court Enforcement industry has campaigned for many years for the law to be changed to allow them to enforce judgments in relation to 'consumer credit debts'. Earlier this year, the High Court Enforcement industry had their h
  7. Hi, could anyone advise me how to get into the court system so that I can check a specific insolvency practitioners previous cases. I would like to know if any of the cases that they took to court had any people contesting their case against them or not. If no one contested their case it might give me an avenue to go down when I am fighting my case.

I have had an order granted against me and the company have not complied with providing me any means to make payment such as banking details, i applied for a variation order and they have failed to respond to the courts, it has cost me 400 quid in legal costs to ask what options i have available, and they have advised to file the variation but to request costs for them failing to supply details, can i do this 2nd issue; my ex wife is makin
  9. does anyone know who is the body, and address responsible for the county courts. we have a problem here in plymouth where they have no counter service, the phone is always engaged and they never respond to emails........... cheers
  10. In March I started a thread on here about the introduction by the Ministry of Justice of a Criminal Courts Charge that from May this year was to be added to each Magistrate Court Fine. The charge ranged from between £150 up to a maximum of £1,200. The charge is paid on top of the fine, compensation order, prosecution costs and victims surcharge. As can be seen in the following thread that I started, this charge has lead to the resignation of many Magistrates. http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?443504-Criminal-Courts-Charge-to-be-added-to-all-Magistrate-Cour
  11. Across the country, 91 courts and tribunals will close, while a further 31 will merge with existing buildings. See the link below for more details on this story: What effect is this going to have on local justice and how will the volume change for the remaining Courts to pick up the extra cases that will be heard at regional Courts in the future? So with the change to digital and more use of the video conference and the use of telephones will see a significant change to the justice system. How many more changes are in the pipeline and what will they be now? Only time w
  12. The criminal courts charge is to be scrapped from 24 December, Justice Secretary Michael Gove has announced. Since April, convicted criminals in England and Wales have had to pay a charge of between £150 and £1,200 towards the cost of their case. MPs had called for it to be axed and the Magistrates Association said the decision was "tremendously welcome". The charge is paid on top of fines, compensation orders and defendants' own legal charges, and is higher for those convicted after pleading not guilty. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-34993428
  13. In March this year I started a thread about the introduction of the Criminal Courts Charge. A link is below. As already mentioned in my above thread, Magistrates themselves are very concerned indeed about this additional charge that is added to all magistrate court fines and over the past few months there have been reports of Magistrates resigning. Thankfully the most recent resignation has been reported in the media: For the full story see : - http://www.chroniclelive.co.uk/news/north-east-news/north-tyneside-magistrate-resigns-over-9752472#ICID=F
  14. Hi, wonder if anybody can help me here. Although I live in England and the contract undertaken was signed by all parties at my place of business in England and the contract is being serviced by a depot in England, I am being sued for non payment of invoices in Scotland as the petitioner's head office is in scotland, Now, I do have a legitimate defence to this, however, I am disabled and cannot travel the 300 miles to the scottish court to defend myself. I have spoken to the court and they have told me that i can challenge the jurisdiction of the court, however, to do that i will
  15. Every daily newspaper is today reporting the dreadful events of yesterday when Tom Crawford's long running battle with his mortgage provider (Bradford & Bingley) came to an end when bailiffs eventually entered Tom & Sue's bungalow and repossessed it in accordance with the court order. Given the high profile and public interest in this case, over 70 police officers were in attendance and the cul de sac where Tom and his wife lived was closed off. Police also hand delivered letters to all his neighbours to advice them of the reason for their presence. http://www.scoop.it/t/lacef
  16. For a very long time (at least four years that I know of) plans have been made at the Ministry of Justice to charge a fee to debtors when court fines are imposed. I have posted brief details of these plans on the forum over the past year and the official announcement was made yesterday of the actual amounts and the reason why they are being charged. The following link provides some background and I will post further details later. https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/336085/fact-sheet-criminal-courts-charge.pdf
  17. Hello - can I ask for some advice please? I have found an almost complete set of statements from Sep 1998 to May 2002. It covers an Alliance & Leicester credit card now taken over by Santander. I have to say that Santander have previously been good within limits - paid out when statements missing and very quickly. Of course, we should never have been in this position to start with but they do seem keen to be seen to be doing the right thing, unlike many others. My questions are these: 1. Given that the start date is so long ago, if I went legal, t
  18. Low-value civil court cases in England and Wales could be dealt with by an online disputes system similar to that used by eBay, a report recommends. A Civil Justice Council report says settling non-criminal cases of less than £25,000 online would reduce the expenses generated by a court. Principal author Prof Richard Susskind said eBay disputes were "minor", like many civil court cases. Her Majesty's Courts and Tribunals Service says it welcomes the report. The proposed online dispute resolution scheme would be similar to the one used by
  19. Can anyone provide advice on the thread title, please confirm and I will provide chapter and verse through private message to ensure I do not prejudice my case Many Thanks in advance
  20. Hello, I'm pretty upset with what should I do so I thought you guys might be able to help me out... Last month I was caught in Tesco with electronic items in my backpack worth of £110, my details were taken and the police was called, afterwards I was not arrested, because I proved the location where I live at. I received a letter saying that I need to go to Crown Court next month to plea guilty or not. I think the best thing to do is to plead guilty, because I surely believe this was my greatest mistake I've done so far, and they probably have plenty of CC
  21. It was revealed yesterday that the BBC are responsible for more that one in ten of all criminal prosecutions in the Magistrates Courts with over 3,500 cases being heard EVERY WEEK. Last year saw the BBC prosecute over 180,000 people for using a TV without a valid licence. Lord Pearson, UKIP leader in the House of Lords is sponsoring a private members bill to decriminalise the non-payment of licence fee. A full copy of the news article can be read in the link below: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/tvandradio/bbc/10256679/TV-licence-offences-account-for-one-in-ten-UK-

  23. On the 13th October 2012 I was travelling (with my son) under common law along a Dual Carriageway, through a non residential area at a speed appropriate for the conditions. At no time on the dual carriageway were there any speed restriction signs. I came upon two policy enforcement officers hiding in the bushes with a speed camera. They pulled me over at the end of the dual carriageway to attempt to gain jurisdiction over me. I was adamant that no crime or traffic acts had been broken and the officers had no business pulling me over. With the policy enforcers getting increasin
  24. Im trying to find a section to help me with a serious Court matter I need to make a complaint about a Court where I have serious concerns where court staff are personally helping the defendant. I am being prevented from getting justice access to clarity from the judges direction and all sorts of delay tack ticks. It may seem to hard to believe but I have evidence of all this and need some serious advice If there is a topic for this I would like to post more about my attempts to complaint and get justice for theft.
