Hi hoping someone can help, Today I received a court summons from Greenbelt group Limited claiming 9 years worth of maintenance charges for green space land next to my home. I moved into the property in early 2007, had no communication from these people until 2010. They say that my title deeds state that I am owe them a share of money for the upkeep of grassy areas within my estate where I live. I have always disputed the charge and never paid them any money at all in the 9 years that I have lived at this address. The green space directly next to my home is in a poor state ruined by the sporting activities from children in the area. Greenbelt group (whom I have never seen on my estate) have not attempted to replace grassy areas and plants ruined by the kids activities thus I feel the charge is unjustified. Would this debt be barred under time limitations? I need to submit a defense and not sure whether to do so under time barred debt or their failure to provide services that they charge for? Has anyone had any experience with this company? Thanking in advance for any advice
http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?464034-Court-summons-from-GREENBELT-GROUP-ADVICE-**Discharged-for-£400-from-£2k** Same kind of situation. not paid 9 years greenbelt didnt do the work bad areas in street with very poor maintenance. BUT, other half filled in court summons to make payments, she didn't contest. , this was around 4 weeks ago so they have won decree at £2500, granted 4 days ago got a letter saying as the won decree if we dont pay they will send sherrif officers. how can we contest decree after they win decree, as 50% of the debt is statute barred? was take to court by GREENBELT GROUP ADVICE they got decree. not paid them for around 9 years no contact, in the last 5 years when they made contact they point blank refused all payment terms and demanded full amount . level of service was so poor missing fence sand hedging. patches of land that are meant to be grass simply large areas of mud, In November other half gets citations in her name she doesn't tell me she fills it in with offer of payment, total was around £2300, we are in a difficult financial situation at the moment. As she made offer of payment they win decree for £2300. the issue i have is half of that debt is statute barred. im in talks with greenbelt now, if they dont help, my plan is to take the story to the press and bbc watchdog monthly. They knowingly took statute barred debt to court. SO far, I have contacted : Laura Sangster Para Legal for Greenbelt Laura Sangster Paralegal Greenbelt Group Ltd DL: 0141 948 1249 She was really smug, comments along the line we have WON decree etc. so you will need to pay full amount even though I explained its statute barred. Alex Middleton CEO man of few words sent several emails, either he will ignore or say "thanks" with no other words. anyone know how i can amend judgement cant afford a lawyer sadly, but at worst will plead with BBC watchdog to help.
