About Me


  1. Hello My friend made a personal injury claim after a car accident at the beginning of last year. The 3rd party & insurance company accepted 100% liability. She made a claim for personal injury due to neck pain/whiplash through Irwin Mitchell. In July 2018, an approximate settlement was made to the value of £3000 odd. My friend received £2700 and the rest was taken in fees by IM. On Saturday she received a letter from IM with a copy of court documents headed 'EUI Ltd v ********' - the papers state that they are not disputing liability but they are disputing the amo
  2. Hello I am suing a builder, without legal representation, so it has been a very steep learning curve! Late November, and most of December 2017 I was ill wilth Flu combined with Shingles - the latter affecting eyesight. I know this was a stress thing. My question really is that documents should have been exchanged on 14th November 2017, i attended Defendant's solicitors (partly to keep my costs down) at the correct time and date and saw defendant's Solicitor's assistant - Solicitor was busy! I duly handed over my information, none forthcoming from the other side.
  3. MoneySavingExpert founder Martin Lewis is suing Facebook for defamation following “repeated fake adverts from [problem]mers it refuses to stop publishing” In a statement on MoneySavingExpert, Lewis wrote: “I get about five messages a day from people saying, ‘I’ve just seen your Bitcoin ad and wanted to check it.’ If that is the number who get through to me, how many more must be just taken in?” Well i have seen these adverts have you. I very nearly lifted a floorboard to take out some of my secret stash after thinking well he is a chap you can trust. I came so close but nailed th
  4. I am helping a friend/client defend a summons from their former business Internet suppliers. Long story short, they were happily using BT for their phones and Internet for many years, until some Mickey Mouse outfit called them and said they could provide everything BT did at a fraction of the price. They foolishly agreed before talking to me and soon came to regret the decision as: 1. The Internet regularly went down for long periods. 2. One fix suggested by the ISP was too disable the fixed IP and change to dynamic. As they use CCTV and Remote Desktop this was not a great sol
  5. Hi everyone, My case is turning quite complex and I would appreciate any support anyone has for me. I will try and lay everything out as clearly as possible... 1) Viewed a property on the 21st of October, and noticed some issues with the property (cracks on the outside walls), we asked the estate agent who said it was just “common shrinkage”. As the current tenants were in with furniture / laundry around we didn’t see the full extent of this. 2) The following week we decided to make an offer on the property, and stated that “this offer is contingent on the following: …”. Ou
  6. I want to take a small claims action against my council but I do not know to whom I address the suit/claim. I mean in a normal law suit it would be the CEO, XXXX Ltd, but in the case of my council should I sue -'The Mayor and Burgesses Council xxxxxx' -& address the claim to him, or do I address the claim to the - CEO of London Borough of XXXXXX ref, TVs 'The Sherrifs are Coming' and they had high Court write against 'The Mayor & Burgesses Havering Council' . Thanks for any help.
  7. In January 2009 we hired builders after checking several companies, getting referrals and looking at their work to build an extension. We realized later that their referrals were friends of theirs who were in on the [problem]. We did staged payments and only paid into a bank account electronically. The council's planning department knew early on they were cowboys, but never told us until the builders walked off the job with claims they were being harassed by the planning department. We found out they did not use insulation, the roof was only plywood and the electrics and plumbing put in ran to
  8. I am in the process of suing a limited company that owes me £16,000. They admit they owe the amount but just wont pay. My problem is that the companies registered office is at a firm of accountants. Do I have my court summons issued to there or to the home address of the director I have been dealing with. If I win the case and I have to send in bailiffs there would be no sense in using the registered office. Anyone help me? David Prince
  9. Soft drinks makers including Coca Cola are reportedly considering suing the Government over George Osborne's plans to implement a tax on sugary drinks, which could never see the light of day. http://www.independent.co.uk/news/business/news/sugar-tax-soft-drinks-makers-coca-cola-britvic-ag-barr-legal-suing-the-government-a6943871.html
  10. I really need advice please: I went to court end last month: Last yr laptop repairman took my laptop to quote on repairing broken screen, brought back the next day with much damage to hinge area etc, he denied it so I took him to court. There he admitted fault, but I lost the case. All my evidence was correct, half of which I sent to court was lost by court including quote I obtained, judge had no idea about costs of repairing computers, many court mistakes especially including the fact I lost the case. I asked for appeal, it was denied
  11. Slightly complex claim here. I topped up an Egg loan at the beginning of 2007. The total cash amount of the loan was £9331 and the payment protection premium lent was £1730.85 with the total amounts payable at £10668.00 and £1979.04 respectively. I subsequently defaulted on the loan and it was sold to various debt collection companies, ending up most recently with Arrow Global. They stated that the purchase balance of the account was £8193.79, down from the £11061.85 advanced by Egg. Added to the complications, I now live in the USA. Restons for Arrow Global obtained a CCJ by default
  12. How do I sue a company in Scotland from England. Already sent them the letter before claim etc. Despite Scotland having no pre action conduct for the type of case in question, their lawyer has already complained I used the English one which is apparently unsuitable for his client - although everything in the letter already corresponds with Scottish requirements. it seems I'll have to sue them in Scotland, the defendant says they aren't liable and besides I'm in England (HAHAHA YOU CAN'T TOUCH US). Money owed is £750.00. I should add that the law in question
  13. My solicitor screwed up on my conveyance. I was to start a claim for money compensation against them, can I do this as per the normal route for normal people/civil claims or is there some way I must go via the Law Society or the SRA, LO etc first? Or is the Law Society, SRA, Legal Ombudsman separate for matters of conduct etc only?
  14. Hi, After over a year of trying I have finally received a calculation from Barclays for my Mastercard which I took out in 1996. After the involvement of the Ombudsman they offered to settle out of good will with no admission. The offer letter I received stated that they are admitting that I was missold. The letter is a little cryptic in that it states that they are "not required to retain statement information for more than 6 years" and that the value of payments prior to 2005 would be calculated assuming that the payments reduced at a steady rate to 0 going back to 1996. They say th
  15. We bought a new build property in September 2013 and moved in in December. When we moved in the underfloor heating was not working, the sheds were no built along with other snags they still had to finish. Since then we have had hardly any luck getting in touch with the builders to finish the work to the house. They have confirmed that the kitchen floor will all need to be taken up to fix the underfloor heating, but fail to ever commit to a date to do the work. Now they ignore any of our efforts to get in contact with them. We have all the email correspondence saved including them admittin
  16. Hi, first post, so go easy . To cut a long story short I bought a car from a trader. I found out afterwards it had had some crash damage. He's partially repaired it (he accidentally left receipts to that effect in the paperwork) but left about 3 grand's work of further work (that was out of sight, so I guess he thought he could get away with it) not done. Once discovered (about a week after bought the car) I called him and confronted him. He flat out refused to do anything and suggested I take him to court. I've written a letter before action and will start proceedings ASAP. Wh
  17. The builders demanded payment from a vulnerable member of the family who paid the final payment in full. There were problems with the build from before the time the final payment was made, but we were not aware of the real nature of the problems until after payment. From the time the bills were paid in full, the builders work has been very poor. In summary, the builders have not stuck to the contract or the plans. Building control have a long list of outstanding issues including the roof and floors being inadequately supported. We have a solicitor who said the first step was to ge
  18. Hi, i applied for a funeral payment from the social fund, the dwp granted it , but they got part of it wrong , so i phoned up to quiry it first off. however i got insulted , patronized and probable intimidating and threatening behavior. Ive got a Cd of the phone conversation from the dwp , im just wondering whats my first port of call.
  19. Hello all, I was hoping to get some advice from the good people on the forum. My partner and I purchased a home in March 2011, a new build property, signed sealed etc etc. However, a month later, the builders decided to put a walkway going through to a main road to give access. This adversely affects my property. My questions are as follows: 1) As it was not on the final plans when we signed the contract, and we received no notice of this walkway is this a breach of contract? 2) The walkway is not on the FINAL plans lodged with the council. Although when i rang the Council p
  20. After racking up a few victories against banks and DCA, I'm now itching to take a fight to them. Because I know, given the chance to take me to courts regardless of the merits they would. The Issue: My bank who I have had no problems with except a deteriorating level of customer service and increasing incompetent level of customer service has disclosed my confidential details which has caused me to incur financial loss. I opened a business bank account with my bank by phone and was told there would be some paperwork I would need to sign and return by post. The letter never turn
  21. The developer has issued a claim against me. The developer is also the manager and owner of the private road on which we live. I intend to fully dispute the claim. The date of service is today, 3rd May so I have a little time to get things together. He is claiming £265 for what he states in the POC as "charges incurred by our company on behalf of the residents of XXX which is a private road owned by our company. There are clauses in the sales contract for each property which allows us to pass on the charges and make a charge for management costs. The 10 other residents have settled the
  22. I am currently seeing a company for buying a dodgy car ( separate thread. http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?348468-POC-for-second-hand-car/page4 ) My question is is there anything I can do once dissolved about monies owed and also is there anything illegal about now trading under a different name?
  23. These everyone seems to want to sue everyone else for minor injuries just to get some cash. But if the NHS done something minor, but a company told you to sue, would you? For instance, you are in hospital and they leave the drip on high into your hand and it swells up twice the size. It's very painful, and the staff don't seem to be bothered and just leave you. Hours later the shift changes and the first nurse in quickly turns the drip off. It then takes over 24hrs for the swelling and pain to go away. Now some people may try and sue for that and would probably get a few hundred quid
  24. LBA letter has not done the trick for £1000 in charges and interest. Is there a guide to court application?. I recall using moneyclaim online for bank charges back in the day but get the feeling this has changed. Thanks
