    • I suggest that you write to the breeder immediately with a copy to the court and concede the cost of the puppy and also concede the excess costs for bringing that element of the claim. you will simply be conceding two points which frankly I don't think you can possibly win and it means that you're left with claims which are entirely winnable. Moreover the gesture of having written to the breeder making these concessions will show that you have tried hard to avoid litigation  and trouble and inconvenience to the court. even if the breeder refuses it, it will go to your credit that you have done this.    
    • Thank you. At this point I'm not sure how right or wrong I am.    But based on our conversation this evening I have gone back to the breeder via message and pointed out to them that I offer them one final chance to settle at 900 pounds.    They informed me their vets only said this treatment would cost 500. The same vets who don't notice a puppy who cant open his eyes.    And they are willing to settle at 500 as a gesture of good will. Ha! And this is why they wanted to mediate  to put this offer over. I advised that we wouldn't take less than 900 as a settlement. They arent interested.   I had to be quick as the money we used is our savings for some private health treatment we need to back in our banks by next month so really left me no choice but to bite the bullet and try and get this solved sooner rather than later     I appreciate your advice and hope the courts understand the full picture.

    • I’m in desperate need of help
       
      I bought some clothes online in may through Evans and paid through PayPal
      returned them all seven days later
       
      I waited the 14days for my refund and no refund came
      I put in a dispute through PayPal but I didn’t get any emails to escalate the case - PayPal closed it. 
      evans said they couldn’t refund the money because PayPal have cancelled the refund because of the open dispute
       
      I contacted PayPal
      they said the dispute had been closed but Evans at no point had attempted a refund.
      fast forward to today
       
      I’ve got copies of numerous messages sent to and from twitter messages as it’s the only way I can contact them
      I’ve also contacted their customer service too
      all I get is PayPal have cancelled refund because dispute is still open.
       
      I have proved that the dispute is closed
      I have got an email saying that if Evans sent the refund they would accept it
      but up until the date I got the email they have not once attempted a refund .
       
       I have sent them a letter before court email
      I have even offered to have the full refund as a gift card just to get this sorted !
       
      I’m literally at the end of my tether and don’t know where to turn next !
       
      i suffer with mental health issues and this is affecting my health and I’d saved the money for a year to buy these clothes as I’m on a low income .

Abbey Default - Judgment by Default, set aside request received

I need some help with my POC. I will briefly outline the situation here and then attach the POC, but I dont think it's accurate enough.

 

Had a current account with Abbey from 1998-2006. Settled and closed the account after settling out of court for bank charges. Then noticed Default on credit file for £108 only this year. Requested removal of this only for Abbey to then post default with another CRA also. I have never received a default notice, nor was I ever made aware I owed this money. Account marked as satisfied.

Issued Abbey with SAR, CCA request, Cease and Desist processing letter...all of which ignored. Have raised complaints with both the ICO and FOS and still await outcome.

My confusion is this, do I pursue them for breach of DPA or CCA? I think DPA as they've failed to provide any evidence or information to me, just standard letters. Also, the account was closed for 3 years before they posted default with Experian...after contract was terminated. They processed data without my permission.

Any help is greatly appreciated. I want to get the POC right, then I will know exactly where I should focus all my follow up work.

thanks

 

POC

1. Claimant held a Current Account with the Defendant, xxxxxx, from September 1998 to December 2006.

2. A 'default' appears on the Claimant’s credit reference file relating to the account.

3. The Defendant;

a) Has failed to comply with a Statutory Notice issued by the Claimant pursuant to

s.10 & s.12 Data Protection Act 1998 (maybe section 7 also?)

b) Has applied the 'Default' without complying with the requirements of s.87 Consumer Credit Act 1974

c) Continues to process data regarding the alleged default with Credit Reference Agencies, even after the termination of the contract.

5. The Claimant respectfully seeks;

a) Rectification, blocking, erasure or destruction of the inaccurate data, which the Court can order under s.14 Data Protection Act 1998 – including details passed to the Credit Reference Agencies

b) Costs and damages at the discretion of the Court due to the damage to the claimants creditworthiness. The claimant has suffered a significant waste of personal time in pursuing this matter through the correct channels.

Any advice would be much appreciated. In summary:

 

  • Held current acc with Abbey until 2006. Paid off and closed in 2006 due to excessive charging.
  • Noticed default on credit report this year, challenged this
  • No default notice available, no letters, no warning, no nothing
  • Complaint ongoing with FOS and ICO
  • Received Data Access via SAR...nothing in there
  • Initiated court claim....no defence from Abbey, so Judgment by Default

Not sure where to go from here? I imagine Abbey will ask for set aside, in which case I will request disclosure using CPR 31.16 when the time comes. I should stress, I dont owe them anything and am not trying to get out of an agreement. I didnt know they were going to default me in 2006 as they didnt tell me. It was for £108, which I paid off anyway.

Have heard in various forums of the FOS finding in favor of banks, despite absence of the DN. Am wondering if this is why CPR 31.16 in court is now the best option for me.

Am now waiting to see what happens, I havent used enforcement yet while I await the decision of the FOS which could help my case.

Finally, I have requested costs, but unsure whether to change this fixed amount to be decided by court instead.

is there any point at which we can amend our POC? I'm tempted to remove the reference to 'damage to creditworthiness' and simply allow the court to decide. I dont want this to be reallocated....if it ever gets allocated in the first place!!

Even after 14 days have passed they can still request set-aside, right? In fact, even after 3 months they can, as far as i know.

 

DJs are more inclined to hear cases than not.

 

Anyway, you're right...it's just a waiting game right now.:mad:

Ok, so didn't want to post this until I clarified something, so here goes.

 

Now you have Judgment, the Judgment debt exists and can be enforced. By that I mean you can seek enforcement from the Court, using various methods;

 

http://www.hmcourts-service.gov.uk/courtfinder/forms/ex321_0406.pdf

 

The most appropriate appears to be County Court Bailiff, or High Court Enforcement Officer

 

http://www.hmcourts-service.gov.uk/courtfinder/forms/ex345_web_0809.pdf

 

www.hceo.gov.uk

 

These shouldn't be entered in to lightly, so read the links and post back if you have questions.

 

Of course there's still the chance of a set aside, in which case you might not want to take enforcement action immediately, but some would say a CCJ should be enforced immediately - they would do the same to you, if they had the chance ;)

Always happy to help where I can!

Thanks for this. I am still considering my options as I'm fairly certain they will request set aside, and maybe going for enforcement now would be a waste of the fee...?

I was interested to read this if I went for High Court Enforcement...

 

"You can ask an HCEO to enforce any judgment over £600 provided it is not regulated under the Consumer Credit Act 1974 (these agreements can only be enforced in county court by their own bailiffs)."

 

My claim did reference the CCA, in that s87 covers defaults. Although no default exists...so perhaps I'm wrong.

 

So, if I did go for enforcement, I would rather use these high court guys as they won't mess around. I believe you were advised similarly during your previous O2 battle.

 

I wonder if it makes any difference whatsoever if I try to enforce now or wait 28 days. I could not find any information regarding time limits for requesting set asides for judgments.

 

(by the way, the link on your post is dead - http://www.hceoa.org.uk)

I am also thinking of removing all reference to the DPA from my claim, and just focusing on the CCA. That way it cannot get reallocated and MUST be considered simple enough to deal with on the SCT.

My argument would then be this -

No Default Notice, Default Letters, Letters of Assignment or Termination = Unenforceable Default

If the agreement is unenforceable.

 

If it isn't, they can just reissue another Default Notice and start the whole process over again.

whoa!

I'm not disputing the agreement. Although I have only seen my original bank account application form so far...no agreement per se.

Are you saying that I can't just try to disprove the validity of the DN...in that it doesn't exist. Surely I can pursue them on the grounds that they never issued a DN, or any correspondence relating to a potential default, regardless of the original agreement...?

:confused:

This is for a Bank Account, isn't it? Overdraft?

 

If so, there is no prescribed format for an agreement - it is excluded from the format/content requirements by the OFT. Take a look at the Overdrafts link in my signature.

 

The termination of the account has to happen in the "agreed" (note, not "prescribed") format. In short, they should have sent a letter telling you how they would terminate the agreement, then have complied with that when they eventually did. If they can show this letter was sent, (as well as complying with the OFT's s.74 Determination) the default would be accurate.

Yes, it was a bank account that was overdrawn.

The issue for me is that I didnt receive any correspondence from Abbey suggesting a default was forthcoming, or any letter suggesting termination of any kind. I thought this was a requirement under the CCA.

 

I requested all of this when I sent the SAR, but nothing was provided. I guess I'm a little baffled now, this isn't as clear cut as i thought it might be.

just to clarify, there was no agreed overdraft, I had just gone overdrawn.

The challenge here is not what did you receive, but what was sent. There is a difference. If they show the letter was sent, that will be enough, unfortunately. (Of course it needs to be compliant, so we're back to do they have proof of it being sent and complying with their obligations)

 

I requested all of this when I sent the SAR, but nothing was provided. I guess I'm a little baffled now, this isn't as clear cut as i thought it might be.

 

We've seen cases where documentation has surfaced after a S.A.R was responded to. The question would be would what they provide when asked for satisfy a Judge that the letter was sent? If it's a "yes", there's little you can do.

thanks for your help car, much appreciated

 

So, what would constitute proof of sending AND compliance of the DN, or would this vary depending on the judge? Abbey have admitted to me twice they have no DN, or letters pertaining to a DN. They sent me a blank template letter.

If they suddenly produce docs in court that I've asked for for over 6 months, will this not look like abuse of process, in that they could have avoided court after all?

sorry, lots of questions!

No - have a read of the links I've provided.

 

They need to show that they told you how they would terminate the agreement prior to or shortly after you entered in to it, plus that they terminated it correctly as agreed.

 

There is no need for a Default Notice on an overdraft debt. (The agreement being exempt from the requirements of s.87/s.88 of the CCA 1974)

 

Abbey have admitted to me twice they have no DN, or letters pertaining to a DN.

 

See above.

 

They sent me a blank template letter.

 

If a Judge decides that was sent and it complies with the agreement they had with you, then that will suffice.

 

If they suddenly produce docs in court that I've asked for for over 6 months, will this not look like abuse of process, in that they could have avoided court after all?

 

Yes, in which case you may be able to recover costs against them for acting unreasonably. As this will likely be a small claim, that won't be much.

 

It also depends on whether the Judge considers that letter "data" in the meaning of the DPA as to whether he thinks they should have disclosed it under your request or not. TBH, a template will probably not be classed as data, but probably will satisfy him if they can show one was sent.

 

sorry, lots of questions!

 

No probs - keep 'em coming, as I need you to be fully informed before you decide how to proceed ;)

Ok, thanks. I am reading your links, but struggling to keep up. I am fast losing confidence that I have a case here, or at least a strong one. If the overdraft doesn't come under the CCA, they can just default me without notice, which is what they've done.

 

So, it all comes down to what they sent me at the time, which I can say with absolute confidence was nothing. However, it would be easy for them to just prodice their standard letters, without my name or account details on them, and just claim they sent these.

 

Doesn't seem particularly fair? I will continue to read, but feel I'm coming to a dead end. I need the agreement, in whatever form.

 

Does a signed application form for a current account constitute and agreement?

No.

 

The Account is governed by the FSA.

 

The Overdraft is governed by the OFT.

 

It's the Overdraft you're challenging, so the OFT's Determination applies.

 

 

Yes, to challenge them, but keep reading that thread ;)

Always happy to help where I can!
