Hope it went well. Please let us know.

Dear All

Important update: I WON.

Log book loans took me to court using someone else’s address.

As I could not/did not correspond with the court, it was ruled in their favour. It was ordered I had to hand the vehicle over to them. Please read on.

In all honesty the information contained within the forums gave heart, but only the faintest belief that I could save my car.

Many directed towards solicitors, many of whom wanted £500-£1000 in advance before they would even look at the case. None would give solid advice or direction.

Remember, a solicitor sees you as an easy way to make money. No better than the ‘loan shark’ you borrow from.

Hence I spent days/months trawling through the internet, site after site, write up after write up.

I found many a holy grail containing invaluable information.

Hence collectively I challenged the court’s decision & supplied the court with my correct address. On top of the ruling against me (wrong address), I highlighted 10 (yes 10) errors of procedure/wording etc that invalidated the Bill of Sale, hence any one of which voiding the Bill of Sale in respect of the personal chattels comprised therein.

I have just received notice from Nine Regions/Log Book Loans.

“We are in receipt of your application to set aside judgment in the above case. Having reviewed the case in detail and in consideration of the costs we would incur in litigating further, we have taken the decision to agree to the setting aside of the judgment and discontinuance of the claim. As we are no longer minded to pursue the matter through the courts we can also confirm that we have today requested that HPI remove our interest and security alert from their register and have instructed our recovery agents to cease all action.

We have written to the court to advise of our intentions and have requested that an order be drawn up setting aside the judgment by consent and discontinuing the claim. You should receive a sealed copy of the order directly from the court but we will also endeavour to send you a copy of the same once received at this office.”

It is my personal belief that from the information contained regarding other Bill of Sale agreements, within the forums, highlights that every LOG BOOK Loan, BILL of SALE can be challenged & rendered void in respect of the personal chattels comprised therein.

Please don’t see this as an easy escape. Many will have signed loan agreements also. They are a completely different study. Again search & you will find that they too are limited, dependant on timing, amount repaid to name but a few.

CHALLENGE CHALLENGE CHALLENGE.

GOOD LUCK.

OMG

Will this ever end.

I was clearly joyous at LBL dropping their litigation.

However I have just today received a letter from the court, as a response to an email I had sent them:

“Further to your e-mail dated *********** 2010,the court confirms that the claimant has informed the court of their position,- however-District Judge has refused their request to discontinue the claim.

Regarding a refund of an application fee, the court cannot refund your fee for the mentioned. application as it has been processed and it is listed for a hearing on ********** 2010.”

Has the world gone mad or is it just me.

So reading betwen the lines, the claimant isn't now sueing but the court is - I don't understand that.

I think you may find that he wants them in front of him, they may have abused the court process- relax for now, give the court a ring and have a chat with the team there...

I cannot see where you would be in the spot light...

Hi Jolly Green Giant

 

Sorry to note that this matter is not finsihed as yet.

 

It would seem to me that the Judge has indeed decided that they cannot simply 'walk away' from this one....

 

I don't see that you have anything to fear considering the fact that they are the ones that initiated the claim against you - then were unable to substantiate their claim.... they will of course know that 'protocol' is very much party to the court system and that at any stage prior to writing to withdraw their claim against you - they could have re-tracted their claim; they chose not to - until it was clearly 'too late' - their actions taken were done to fob you off; so that you did not seek to claim costs or compensation - they are obligated to pay you for your costs in the matter.

 

Having said that - so that you can get a clearer picture - what they did - was to 'throw the claim' after you had successfully challenged the CCJ; that had been entered incorrectly against the address (rendering the owners of that address with a 'black mark' against their address; which would have caused any application for credit to be refused)

 

 

With the CCJ successfully 'set aside' - this leaves the original claim they made against you 'open' - are you still with me on this? The original claim is still in the system.

 

The letter from LBL advising you that they do not wish to persue the claim - is not enough to satisfy the court (although it will count against them; now that they have to follow it through and is handy for you to point out to the Judge; when your hearing comes up)

 

They are supposed to follow protocol - in simply writing a letter to you and no doubt copying it to the court is not protocol - the Judge will only have been interested in the comments they made regarding the 'set aside' hearing which you requested.... they now must attend court (or not if they choose not to... doesn't matter to you because it sounds as though your defence is solid)

 

It is for the Judge to decide the outcome of the claim that they brought against you - NOT LBL!!

 

IMO the Judge has done nothing wrong - the only way the case would not proceed would be when the allocation questionnaire that would have been completed (presumeably) by both parties advised the court that the matter was going to be 'mediated' between the parties - in such an instant - the court may have dispensed with a formal hearing.

 

If I am wrong, then I apologise - but I don't think that I am - I am happy to be corrected though?

 

You now get the opportunity to defend the claim properly and counterclaim for a number of things; such as your costs etc - money back in your pocket - and for your time spent.... personally, I would copy all your comments on the forum to give the Judge an idea of just how much time and effort you have put in to clearing your name - and what about the Car? - if they took it.... then they have to get you one back of similar type and performance - Are you saying you were just going to walk away from all that is due to you?

 

Just my thoughts on the matter - hoepfully it helps?

Got a derisory offer for my losses for LBL in advance of the imminant court date.

 

Onyone else been in this position?

 

Hi Ya

 

There will be many who take such offers just to save time and be done with the whole thing.

 

It's your call.... if you think the offer is derisory; then tell them so, tell them what you are willing to accept to shelf the case and make it clear that if they are not willing to conclude on your terms then the matter proceeds to court so that the Judge decides what they should pay (keep any communication between you and them regarding 'settlement' marked up as 'without prejudice' - that way if you get a better offer in court, they can't then say to the Judge 'but he was willing to accept much less')

Been to court.

 

Judge not pleased.

 

Judge considered this an interesting case.

 

Clearly alot of time & effort was put into my defence.

 

Judge was glad that LBL did not content the matter. The Judgement has been Set Aside.

 

My record is to be cleared.

 

The Judge has ordered that we should come to some amicable agreement over cost & compo.

 

However he will keep an I out for this case (yea right) so that it is brought back before him if an amicable soultion is not found.

 

 

 

LBL - They can be beaten

I nice little additional nugget.

 

LBL started proceeding against me in Jan 09, claiming £5,795 Plus Damages Plus interest.

 

 

I have a letter from LBL to the debtor dated 22/7/10 claiming an outstanding balance of £4,786.20

 

 

Is this cake & eat it.

 

 

 

Is this an abuse of proceedure. ROUND TWO TO ME.

 

Now on the advice of the Judge, I need a solicitor to sue LBL. INTO THE TRENCHES WE GO.

Hi Joly

 

Well, looks like you have an open market, if it was me i'd do as the judge suggested, get a SOL and nail them, open season..

Sue them for the car + damages, costs...etc etc. A good sol's letter with the threat of going further up the court chain will snap them back.

 

Say 5k (court limit) + costs and replacement car....

 

WELL DONE...its your game now.
