    • I am a University Student looking to rent accommodation along with three other Students We found a four bedroomed flat and called the Letting Agent to say we were very interested We had a viewing and raised some questions We wanted to check if there was a break clause in the Lease The Letting Agent said we would need to pay a Holding Deposit whilst he waited for the Landlady to return from Holiday So we paid £750 split between the four of us to the Letting Agent We then received an email to say the Holding Deposit was non refundable References were then checked and the tenancy Agreement arrived which needed to be signed by each guarantor and tenant and send back the full signed agreement At this point we got to see the Tenancy Agreement for the first time and the break clause of 6 months was nowhere to be seen so this made us very nervous and we decided to pull out as we felt we didn’t want the risk of not being allowed to leave the property until a full year was up We emailed the Letting Agent who replied with the following: The holding deposit is not refundable as you are withdrawing from this deal. I will need a confirmation from Everyone that they are withdrawing and we will put the property back on the market.   The move in date is on the 4th Sept and the landlady is left with a very short time to find another tenant.    This will incur a lot of extra cost from both us as an agency and the landlady which we will try to recover. So, my question is are we eligible to get a refund of our Holding Deposit – bearing in mind we were not told we wouldn’t get it back until after we had paid it?
    • As for the rest @BankFodder please wait for my bullet points account and further uploads (I'm in the process of converting a lot of my files and screenshots to more condensed pdf thanks to reading one of your posts how to do this for free...but, it's taking time as I also have artritis in practically every bone in my body, as well as fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue, which affects my hands, and I have a lot of redacting to do).   I appreciate your trying to get an angle on this and your keen to help me in the best you can but, if I keep getting sidetracked like this, it will be counterproductive and frustrating for both/all of us.   On my #13 I gave a link to your skeleton argument pdf because, I'd carefully researched the posts for days before joining (as well as looking at posts over the last 5 years), which btw needs a bit more redaction on p6 as it's showing [her] name. That could be my case to a 'T' except add in the years back to 2006/2007, particularly since I went on their computer system and was 'treated' to their 1st system migration, and all the others that have followed. Not sure about this person's status but, for me you can also add in the fact that they've: continually failed to put me on their PSR; lost my password more than once (the one call I managed to recall was December 2016 when he openely admitted he couldn't find a trace of my being on a password scheme and they now have two whenever the meter reader arrives...and yes, I've done an SAR to the distributor already because they've failed to keep them informed of my status, that's all in hand); continually ignored my medical status of being disabled and unable to read my own meter (I've repeatedly told them about this, btw) due to not only bone-on-bone arthritis in my right knee (diagnosed 2011) but also a crumbling spine (extensive arthrits) with a prolapsed disc and extensive nerve damage (eventually diagnosed 2014), which leaves me at risk of developing corda equina; continually ignored my vulnerability status; and excarrebated my MH/PTSD over the years with their continuing bullying and threats.        
    • Hi Everyone. With the deadline for claiming PPI coming up I thought I better make one last attempt. Couple of quick questions though.. 1. I tried claiming with RBS about 5 years ago and they rejected my claim. Is there any point trying again? 2. I was going to use a company as I'm getting bombarded with "last chance" emails, but I probably don't want to do that as I've always done my own thing. That said, if I make my "Find out if you had PPI" enquiry online, does that mean I'm in before the deadline, or do I actually have to make a complaint before the 29th Aug?   Many thanks for any advice/ help

I received a claim form Cohen today re their client CL Finance. It is for an debt with HSBC.

 

The history of this is a loan with First Direct. All paid fine until a change of circumstances, spoke to and managed by CCCS at first at payments of £5 per month. That became too much for me to pay and I stopped about a year ago. As I had moved house the next thing I had was a telephone call November '07) for my new address, which I gave them. I then received a letter from HSBC 27th November informing me that my debt had been sold to CL. Included was a letter from CL. I have uploaded attachments of these, but not sure how to get them to show in the post.

I have seen a similar thread from someone else dealing with the same company and assume the best course is to follow their action.

With a letter to CL asking for the relevant information to prepare my defense.

The court particulars state that the account was maintained without sufficient funds to meet withdrawals, but this was a loan account that I only paid back to, it was not a regular bank account.

First things first you need to send in the acknowledgement of service ticking you intend to defend the claim. This then gives you 28 days from service to respond. Before I can give you any further advice would need to see thier POC as it appears you have only uploaded the front page. If you would prefer you can PM it to me.

Kind regards

I can scan in later when I have more time, but there's nothing else on there except the court response pack, which consists of;

Admission Form N9A

Defence and counterclaims N9B

Acknowledgment of service

So not an overdraft then? This is not the first time that a loan has suddenly become an overdraft when a court claim has been filed.

Depends which thread it is. You do need to send a request for info under the CPR's.
If you would prefer you can PM it to me.

I would strongly advise that documents are kept on the open forum with the view that any advice given on them can be corrected by other users if in any way incorrect. Advice given by PM can not be corrected. Also other users can not follow your progress.

Your right of course Rory, if that is all the detail they have provided. I must say though, that it has to be one of the worst POC's I have seen. It is almost as if they expect it to go undefended and summary judgement issued without the need for documentation.

CL file these all the time and their POC's are all equally as poor as the one shown. You're right, they do expect it to go undefended - in this case, however, they will be sorely disappointed

This was the post I was thinking of.

The response pack says I can go to MCOL to defend it, but do I need to send the acknowledgment back first?

Hi there,

You should send the acknowledgment of service from the court pack back to the Northampton County Court. I think you can do this electronically. They should then send the file to your local county court.

The letter should be sent to the solicitors who filed the claim. Add onto the heading 'CPR 18.1'. That's the section of the Civil Procedure Rules that require them to disclose the documents.

You should give the solicitors a reasonable time to respond but there is a short time frame. You should file your defence within 28 days of service, i.e. by 16 January so you shouldn't give them too long. I'd request a reply by 7 January and file a defence on 14 January. If you haven't received a notification of transfer from your local court by that date, file your defence with Northampton CC. They will pass it on but it will be regarded as filed when it hits Northampton.

I did all this and heard nothing back from anyone yet. I realise it is difficult over the Christmas period, but is there something I should be moving on with now?

Did you receive written confirmation back from Northampton that you had acknowledged the claim. If not phone them NOW,

 

As for Cohens they are probably crapping themselves that someone dared challenge them and are probably looking for a real solicitor to pull them out of the hole they have dug themselves into.

I spoke to the court they received the acknowledgement, I have until the 18th Jan to file my defence. I posted the letter to Cohen on 22-12-07 and it was signed for 02-01-08.

Well the fact that they have failed to supply you with a CCA is a complete defence to any action. However PT2537 has a good thread on here of the actual wording for a set aside

I don't think so. I have just received the POC for a claim they are making. I need to send in my defence before the 18th January, there isn't a CCJ yet! Hopefully won't be either.

An application to set aside the SD costs nothing and is quite a simple process
