    • Djokovic is back in the news - the BBC has cast doubts on the date of his covid test prior to arriving in Australia. They've done some clever research with serial numbers and QR codes but the Serbian public health authority isn't giving information.   And Nadal is a step closer to his 21st Grand Slam title, which would make him the first male player to reach that. He won't be able to compete in the French Open under France's current rules which require all sportspeople to be vaxxed.   Novak Djokovic: Doubts over timing of Covid test WWW.BBC.COM The BBC has uncovered fresh evidence questioning the timing of Novak Djokovic’s positive Covid test used to enter Australia.  
    • Hi   I could be wrong here so could @namedisplay please clarify if I am correct or completely wrong?   In your post#1 you mention that due to your health issues and your mental state at the time you rang the Training Room and was told it would cost and initial £200 and then £15 per month until you finished the course.   Then further in post#1 The Training Room told you you were not eligible for an extension because you hadn't completed enough of the course.   With the above I now refer Post#12 which mentions your circumstances are covered by 13 in the TTR Terms and Conditions.   What is mentioned above seems conflicting from TTR for the following:   1. IMO that money of £200 and then £15 per month (on top of original Course Fees) was them at that time agreeing to an extension as per 13 in TTR Terms and Conditions   2. Them stating you can't extend Course as not completed enough of Course is not in TTR Terms and Conditions (that I and others can see) (Note they could be referring to 15 in TTR Terms and Conditions)   Can you clarify the above and were you informed those extra costs were due to an extension of your Course.   Again I will ask did you provide the Training Room with Medical Evidence when you asked the above?   We also still need to see the Letter from Training Room Threatening Legal Action (fully redacted) which you still haven't posted?   You need to send The Training Room a Subject Access Request (SAR) asking for 'ALL DATA' that simple phrase means whatever format they hold that data in whether it be written, email, recorded phone calls etc.   They then have 30 Calendar Days to respond to your SAR Request and that Time Limit only starts once they have acknowledged your SAR Request. They can extend that Time Limit if they need to prove identity before actioning the SAR Request so be aware of that.   A SAR Request is now FREE and make sure you get Free Proof of Posting from the Post Office     Your right of access ICO.ORG.UK   Can you please make sure you answer the questions asked of Caggers to assist you    
    • I've been trying to resolve a issue with 8 PCN issued by Tyne Tunnel 2 (tt2.co.uk). Tyne Tunnel 2 is a gated toll charged tunnel to cross the River Tyne in Newcastle. We moved in recently so all a bit new to us. My dad had been using the tunnel about twice a week and he had been paying cash for the toll fee at the booths. At some point in November 2021 they had done some constructions where the gates had been closed and payments had transitioned to online methods. My dad had been oblivious to this and been on his merry way multiple times thinking that he doesn't need to pay. So he received the first PCN some where end of November which had been issue on the 26th after which point I went on alert and sorted out the online accounts and such. However the current total of fines has amounted to £255.20 and I have appealed explaining that soon as the letters were received we have resolved the issue but they insist on us paying 8 PCN. I feel it's unfair that the fine is for the same offence which we couldn't have rectified or known until we received the first PCN letter and after the first PCN we have rectified it so feel they are being bit draconic. Any advice on this matter? 
    • No need to apologise! I am extremely grateful for both your help   Gosh very good attention to detail going on here   Great thank you, i will put them back as below   Good evening to you   DEFENCE   1.     The Defendant contends that the particulars of claim are vague and generic in nature. The Defendant accordingly sets out its case below and relies on CPR r 16.5 (3) in relation to any particular allegation to which a specific response has not been made.     2.     Paragraph 1 is noted. It is accepted I have in the past had agreements with Lloyds TSB. I do not recall the precise details or agreement nor the claimant either, having failed to provide an agreement/account number within its particulars of claim and have therefore sought verification from the claimant.   3.     Paragraph 2 is noted but until such time the claimant can clarify the agreement account number any breach has yet to be proven.      4.     I am unaware of any legal assignment or Notice of Assignment allegedly served by either the Claimant or Lloyds TSB pursuant to the Law of Property Act 1925.   5. Paragraph 3 is denied. I am unaware of any Notice of default served.   6.     It is denied with regards to the Defendant owing any monies to the Claimant. The Claimant has failed to provide any evidence of the Agreement/Assignment/Default notice or Termination requested by CPR 31. 14.    Therefore the Claimant is put to strict proof to: a) show how the Defendant has entered into an agreement ; and b) show how the Defendant has reached the amount claimed for; and c) Show or evidence a Default Notice /Notice of Sums in Arrears, d) show how the Claimant has the legal right, either under statute or equity to issue a claim;   7.     As per Civil Procedure Rule 16.5(4), it is expected that the Claimant prove the allegation that the money is owed.   8.     On the 5th of January 2022 I requested to The Claimants Solicitors, Mortimer Clarke by way of a CPR 31.14 copies of the documents referred to within the Claimants particulars to establish what the claim is for. Mortimer Clarke have failed to fulfil my CPR 31:14 request.   9.     On the 5th of January 2022 I made a section 78 legal request to the claimant for a copy of the Consumer Credit Agreement. The claimant has as of 27/01/22 failed to comply.   10.  By reason of the facts and matters set out above, it is denied that the Claimant is entitled to the relief claimed or any relief.

Hi,

 

This is what the OFT say.............................

 

A debt is considered Statute Barred if a creditor has not contacted a debtor for a period of 6 years and no action has been taken on the account.

 

Although the debt is still legally acknowledged as being owed, the creditor is not able to take any legal action against the debtor in order to recover the debt. It is considered unfair if a creditor or debt collector misleads the debtor into believing the debt is still legally recoverable. It is also considered an unfair practice if the creditor or debt collector press for payment after the debtor has stated they will not be paying the money owed. This could amount to harassment contrary to Section 40(1) of the Administration of Justice Act 1970.

 

 

Regards.

 

Scott.

Thank you both for your quick response.

 

 

You can tell who the more experienced person is:D

 

I too find that some of the wording can become confusing as it is not everyday language that I would usually use or even hear for that matter.

 

So, looking at this it appears that IF a debt is acknowledged even verbally on the telephone then this can then reset the clock?:mad:

I don't think a phone call counts, a debt will be "Statute Barred" if there has been no acknowledgement of the debt by you making a payment or in writing within the relevant limitation period.

 

I could be wrong :)

pt2537 has also suggested that acknowledgement must at least be in writing to overturn limitation.

what is meant by 'contact' in your earlier post? thanks.

Contact I take it will mean by making a payment or writing a letter.

If you make a payment within a six year period you start the clock running again , once the six years are up , making a payment does not start the clock again - the debt is statute barredlink3.gif for all time and therefore cannot be Legally challenged .

 

In law , a limitation period is not extended by contact , it is only extended by payment or by written and signed acknowledgement of the debt . Spoken acknowledgement is not sufficient .

 

Please note that in Scottish law it is Statute Barred after five years :D

so, would writing a letter eg 'in dispute' etc even if headed with 'no acknowledgements/admissions' overturn limitation? thanks.

I think if you were to send them " an account in despute letter " and you signed it then yes imo it would overturn the limitation and would start the clock ticking again , because you are infact acknowledging the debt by desputing it .

if it is disputed, then surely there's no 'acknowledgement'.

here's a recent relevant thread on this, what do you think?

If you acknowledged the debt in a defence for example this would "reset" the clock.

 

Yes i was thinking more along this line , however if your stating that the debt doesn`t exist by disputing it then perhaps there is no acknowledge ment after all , but im not 100% on this .

if you used the words i do not ack no debt to your Co.

and then dispute it, it does NOT reset the clock.

 

also be aware that 'payment under duress' will not reset it either

i'e a dca conned you into paying by threats etc.

or the phantom mystery £1 payments by a dca.

So if a debt is approaching statute barred then what is the best course of action if a DCA decides to chase it then?

 

The way I understand it is that the debt could almost be statute barred but due to a DCA getting in touch with you and you going through the usual CCA/SAR approach you've just shot yourself in the foot and given the DCA another 6 years to harrass you for a debt that you'll probably never see a genuine CCA for???

no

sending SAR or CCA does NOT reset the clock.

 

if its almost SB'ed then ignore them.

One question that's always bugged me is, if the original creditor incorrectly assigns the debt to a DCA to whom you acknowledge the debt in some way how does that stand in law? Especially if the OC never gets told you acknowledged the debt or received any part of the payment.

 

In that case surely the acknowledgement is not made the the OC so never happened in law? Otherwise just telling your mate down the pub that you owed money would reset the clock as they would have the same legal standing as that unlawfully appointed DCA?

 

I ask this as, with no proper assignment there is presumably no proper contract between OC and DCA, so the DCA should not have access to the details etc in the first place.
