Hi Need help filling N150 (Allocation Questionnaire)

 

The Story so far:-

 

 

  • Original debt Morgan Stanley, then Goldfish & finally sold to CL Finance
  • Many threat-o-grams including pretty post cards (nice)
  • Money Claim Online court claim against me started Nov08 by Howard Cohen for CL Finance
  • Acknowledged Service and embarrassed defence submitted
  • CCA request submitted (NOW IN DEFAULT ie 12+2days)
  • Request for further information letter sent to Howard Cohen (In accordance with Civil Procedure Rules (CPR) please disclose blah,blah,blah
  • Account in dispute letter sent to CL Finance with copy to Howard Cohen
  • N150 received today with notification that claim is being transferred to my local court

Now I would appreciate some help with completing this N150, I have heard NOTHING from Howard Cohen or CL Finance.

ALLOCATION QUESTIONNAIRE N150

 

Have you sent a copy of this completed form to the other party Yes

 

A. SETTLEMENT

 

For All

 

1. Given that the rules require you to try to settle the claim before the hearing, do you want to attempt to settle at this stage?

 

No

 

Reasons: Without production of the requested documents, I am at a disadvantage and am unable to negotiate a settlement without the full facts.

 

B. LOCATON OF TRIAL

 

Is there any reason why your claim needs to be heard at a particular court? NO

 

C. PRE-ACTION PROTOCOLS

 

You are expected to comply with the relevant pre-action protocol.

 

Have you done so? No

 

If No, explain why?

 

This case is not covered by any approved protocol; I have tried to act reasonably in exchanging information and documents relevant to the claim but have had no response from the claimant in this regard.

 

 

 

D. CASE MANAGEMENT INFORMATION

 

What amount of the claim is in dispute? £19,198.74

 

Applications

Have you made any application(s) in this claim? NO

 

Witnesses

 

Xx xxxxx All the facts in the case

XX xxxxx All the facts in the case

 

ExpertsNo

 

TrackFast Track

 

If you have indicated a track which would not be the normal track for the claim, please give a brief reason for your choice:

 

Its is respectfully requested this case be allocated to the Fast Track, it is a straight forward case and is easily resolved on production of the required documentation by the claimant, should the claimant not have the documentation required to progress this case I suggest that there will be no case to answer.

 

 

E TRIAL OR FINAL HEARING

 

How long do you estimate the trial or final hearing will take? 4 Hours

 

Are there any days when you, an expert or an essential witness will not be able to attend court for the trial or hearing?

 

Xxxx xxxxx

F PROPOSED DIRECTIONS

 

Have you attached a list of the directions you think appropriate for the management of the claim? Yes

 

If Yes, have they been agreed with the other party? NO

 

G COSTS

 

Leave blank

 

H Fee

 

I OTHER INFORMATION

 

Have you attached documents to this questionnaire? YES

 

Have you sent these documents to the other partyYES

 

If Yes, when did they receive them?

 

Do you intend to make any applications in the immediate future?YES

 

If Yes, what for?

 

An order seeking the Claimants compliance with information previously requested.

 

In the space below, set out any other information you consider will help the judge to manage the claim.

 

If the court is in agreement, the defendant respectfully requests that special directions may be given as per the attached draft order.

 

The defendant proposes these directions in mind of the Overriding Objectives, and in particular the duty of the parties to help the court further them. The issues outlined below are the crux upon which this claim rests, and the proposed directions identify these issues and will allow them to be assessed in advance of the hearing so that this claim may proceed justly and expeditiously;

 

without production of the requested documents, I am at a disadvantage and am unable to serve a proper defence. Failure of the claimant to supply the requested documentation will make the case much harder for the court to deal with as without production of the requested documentation will inhibit the courts ability to deal with the case

 

Its is respectfully requested this case be allocated to the Fast Track, it is a straight forward case and is easily resolved on production of the required documentation by the claimant, should the claimant not have the documentation required to progress this case I suggest that there will be no case to answer.

 

Therefore it stands to reason that this document must be disclosed before this case can progress any further.

 

___________________

Hello rdm2006!

 

I think if they have already issued a Claim, then U-T-E needs to use CPR 31.14, not CPR 31.16.

 

There's a good Thread by Surfaceagentx20 on CPR 31.14:

 

Getting Them To Reveal Their Vitals. Using CPR 31.14 to Your Advantage

 

CPR 31.16 is geared for when a Claim has not been issued and, again, CAG has a good Thread on that too, this one by PT2537:

 

why you shouldnt use section 77/78 CCA 1974 if you want the signed agreement

 

Hope this helps.

 

Cheers,

BRW

Claim Number:

 

Dear Sir / Madam

REQUEST FOR INFORMATION

I have received a recent court claim from your organisation. In order to file a defence and counter claim I require some information. Given that this matter is now the subject of legal proceedings, you are obliged to disclose under the Civil Procedure Rules, the information and documents detailed below.

The information must be furnished within fourteen days of the receipt of this letter. If you fail to comply, this will be reported to the Court, a copy of this letter will be provided as evidence to the same and an Order enforcing your compliance will be sought.

c. True copies of any notice of assignment and/or default notice or enforcement notice that you or the original creditor sent me, with a copy of any proof of postage that you hold.

In the xxxxxxxxxCounty Court

Claim number xxxxxxxxxx

Draft Order for Directions

 

1 The Claimant shall not later than 4:00pm on (date) (being a date 2 weeks from the date of the making of the case management directions) deliver to the Defendant a verified true copy of each of the following documents mentioned in the Particulars of Claim

Here is my suggested Other Information,

 

 

Other Information

 

Section I

If the court is in agreement, the defendant respectfully requests that special directions may be given as per the attached draft order.

 

The defendant proposes these directions in mind of the Overriding Objectives, and in particular the duty of the parties to help the court further them. The issues outlined below are the crux upon which this claim rests, and the proposed directions identify these issues and will allow them to be assessed in advance of the hearing so that this claim may proceed justly and expeditiously;

 

Without production of the requested documents, I am at a disadvantage and am unable to serve a proper defence. Failure of the claimant to supply the requested documentation will make the case much harder for the court to deal with as without production of the requested documentation will inhibit the courts ability to deal with the case.

 

The House of Lords in the case of Wilson v First County Trust Ltd - [2003] All ER (D) 187 (Jul) made it clear in paragraph 29 of LORD NICHOLLS OF BIRKENHEAD judgment

 

29. The court's powers under section 127(1) are subject to significant qualification in two types of cases. The first type is where section 61(1)(a), regarding signing of agreements, is not complied with. In such cases the court 'shall not make' an enforcement order unless a document, whether or not in the prescribed form, containing all the prescribed terms, was signed by the debtor: section 127(3). Thus, signature of a document containing all the prescribed terms is an essential prerequisite to the court's power to make an enforcement order. The second type of case concerns failure to comply with the duty to supply a copy of an executed or unexecuted agreement pursuant to sections 62 and 63, or failure to comply with the duty to give

notice of cancellation rights in accordance with section 64(1). Here again, subject to one exception regarding sections 62 and63, section 127(4) precludes the court from making an enforcement order.

 

Its is respectfully requested this case be allocated to the fast track, it is a straight forward case and is easily resolved on production of the required documentation by the claimant, should the claimant not have the documentation required to progress this case I suggest that there will be no case to answer

 

Therefore it stands to reason that these documents must be disclosed before this case can progress any further

Just a quick note here, not meant to confuse I promise.

CL finance has seemingly just bought a shed-load of debt recently. A few of us have had claims from Northampton issued by Howard Cohen acting for CL Finance.

These claims have been characterised by there not being a letter before action sent to the defendant and by the Particulars of Claim having errors in either identifying the original creditor (e.g. saying Barclaycard rather than egg card) and/or the account numbers stated.

It is worth, I think, spending a little while checking the details that is, after all, where the Devil resides.


I do very little but I do it very, very well :cool:

 

If I've helped give my scales a click

If Cohen have failed to follow Civil Procedure Rules - pre action behaviour, by not sending a solicitors "Letter before action" here are a couple of links to postings that can help.

The letters will need to be adapted to fit your circumstances. Any letters to the Senior Partner should be copied to the District Judge at Northhampton County Court, to be added to the Court Papers for your case.

Don't let Cohens off the hook. E.g. Follow up failures to respond to letters, by further letters to the Senior Partner e.g.

 

"Why have you failed to reply to my previous correspondence ? These and other matters regarding your firms conduct are issues which I shall be bringing to the Courts attention"

 

Get a paper trail going. Copy everything to the Court.
