    • Thank you Andy no nothing has changed its still the same for £7700 I was going to include the interest and costs, but I understand the claim now a little better, we have been told to work from home, I have printed off the N244 as I could not save a copy I have detailed everything as stated.   I will post up the two letters to be attached the defendants and my daughters, can ii add that she gives me permission to represent her in court as she will be abroad when the claim goes to Court I can get a witness statement from her to confirm this too.   So with the application N244 completed as above for £7700 plus costs and interest I will attache my daughters letter as detailed under Sec 19 (2.1) Defendants letter giving no objections    I will send this by email tonight after I have finished work
    • It's a shame that you don't have pictures of the damage packaging. Not very clever of the recipient not to have taken these photos. Find out all the information you can. Careful preparation and lots of evidence is important. Whether I think you have a good case will not especially relevant. At the end of the day it is you who will have to decide whether you want to fork out the court fee and have a go at getting your money back. Your's to win and your's to lose
    • @BankFodderthank you again for your reply, I really appreciate it.   I will go through the machine procedure again today. I'm so relieved to hear you think I've got a good case against them.    I have been sent my guitar back from the buyer and he has been refunded in full.    I have photographs of the guitar dated day of listing on eBay and then the photos the buyer sent me of it damaged.    Oh yes, huge lessons and I won't be putting anything of such value in the post again! 
    • Seeing as most here  hate Johnson and the Tories who do you suggest we have running the country?   I am not a fan of Johnson but nor do I like the Labour party lol,    just a general question   Sandy xx

    • I came across this discussion recently and just wanted to give my experience of A Shade Greener that may help others regarding their boiler finance agreement.
      We had a 10yr  finance contract for a boiler fitted July 2015.
      After a summer of discontent with ASG I discovered that if you have paid HALF the agreement or more you can legally return the boiler to them at no cost to yourself. I've just returned mine the feeling is liberating.
      It all started mid summer during lockdown when they refused to service our boiler because we didn't have a loft ladder or flooring installed despite the fact AS installed the boiler. and had previosuly serviced it without issue for 4yrs. After consulting with an independent installer I was informed that if this was the case then ASG had breached building regulations,  this was duly reported to Gas Safe to investigate and even then ASG refused to accept blame and repeatedly said it was my problem. Anyway Gas Safe found them in breach of building regs and a compromise was reached.
      A month later and ASG attended to service our boiler but in the process left the boiler unusuable as it kept losing pressure not to mention they had damaged the filling loop in the process which they said was my responsibilty not theres and would charge me to repair, so generous of them! Soon after reporting the fault I got a letter stating it was time we arranged a powerflush on our heating system which they make you do after 5 years even though there's nothing in the contract that states this. Coincidence?
      After a few heated exchanges with ASG (pardon the pun) I decided to pull the plug and cancel our agreement.
      The boiler was removed and replaced by a reputable installer,  and the old boiler was returned to ASG thus ending our contract with them. What's mad is I saved in excess of £1000 in the long run and got a new boiler with a brand new 12yr warranty. 
      You only have to look at TrustPilot to get an idea of what this company is like.

    • Dazza a few months ago I discovered a good friend of mine who had ten debts with cards and catalogues which he was slavishly paying off at detriment to his own family quality of life, and I mean hardship, not just absence of second holidays or flat screen TV's.
      I wrote to all his creditors asking for supporting documents and not one could provide any material that would allow them to enforce the debt.
      As a result he stopped paying and they have been unable to do anything, one even admitted it was unenforceable.
      If circumstances have got to the point where you are finding it unmanageable you must ask yourself why you feel the need to pay.  I guarantee you that these companies have built bad debt into their business model and no one over there is losing any sleep over your debt to them!  They will see you as a victim and cash cow and they will be reluctant to discuss final offers, only ways to keep you paying with threats of court action or seizing your assets if you have any.
      They are not your friends and you owe them no loyalty or moral duty, that must remain only for yourself and your family.
      If it was me I would send them all a CCA request.   I would bet that not one will provide the correct response and you can quite legally stop paying them until such time as they do provide a response.   Even when they do you should check back here as they mostly send dodgy photo copies or generic rubbish that has no connection with your supposed debt.
      The money you are paying them should, as far as you are able, be put to a savings account for yourself and as a means of paying of one of these fleecers should they ever manage to get to to the point of a successful court judgement.  After six years they will not be able to start court action and that money will then become yours.
      They will of course pursue you for the funds and pass your file around various departments of their business and out to third parties.
      Your response is that you should treat it as a hobby.  I have numerous files of correspondence each faithfully organised showing the various letters from different DCA;s , solicitors etc with a mix of threats, inducements and offers.   It is like my stamp collection and I show it to anyone who is interested!

I went into my PHR with three issues on the papers


Time Bar

No chance of success

Deposit and cost application


I had prepaered all my paperwork and thought the events were supossed to be in laymans terms


After being handed five legal caseworks 5 mins before the PHR hearing the clerk then gives me 6 pages of butterworths on ET law.


The judge and the rep for the respondant hen enter into nearly 60 mins of legal discussion which i tried my best to keep up with, only for the judge to turn to me for my opion on the matter.


Each time it happened the judge got a little more tetchy with me


I went prepared with evidence and paperwork produced in the grievence cross referanced with lodgements and some caselaw


The upshot is the judge has given me three days to make amendments to the ET1 before he decides to strike it out or not


I also got in trouble for late lodgements, which i did because the other side keep forhging documents to refute my prepeartions ( i have two forensic handwriting experts opinion backing this up that cost me £1k)


The time bar can't stand as it's in time, but i just feel out of my depth here


The other side have also said the Et would take 3/4 weeks which is total rubbish. They have 25 witness's, but 17 of them say they heard nothing, saw nothing.


Any suggestions,


can i add a letter to the judge to explain my position? is that allowed


can i request a case management meeting to reduce the paperwork and witness's we would call

Sorry to hear you didn't have a 'fun time', Roddyn.

Respondant's solicitors will do anything they can to try and muddy the waters and intimidate you.

The new bundle 5 mins before is very common, I understand.

The solicitor I was up against at the ET showed up with a sports bag full of enormous law books, which he took out and dramatically SLAMMED down on the table next to me whilst glaring at me. He didn't look quite so cocky when the chairperson read out the decision.


At least you've got the time bar straightened out.


So what amendments to the ET1 do you have to make?


Not sure if you can write to the judge. I wouldn't want to say 'give it a go' if it might prejudice things.

I can't see why you can't request the CMM though. He can only say no.


BTW, do you have household insurance? Check the policy. Sometimes it includes cover for legal rep.

Have you seen a solicitor about your case? Initial meeting should be free.

It's mainly got to do with dates of events. They were not clear enough for the judge.


I want them to look at the totality of the behaviour over a period of time, rather than looking at isolated incidents. But them seemed to focus on that.


I did have some caselaw on this Drinkel v Pinisula Business Services, but i didn'nt take it as i thought i would not have to argue caselaw.


Ho Hum


I don't think they will strike it out, but i have a feeling a deposit will be required.
