    • Ah but if I didn’t pay PRA group could they default me?
    • We have a damp problem in a party wall in a Victorian terrace.  Both I and my neighbour have single storey extensions at the back (actually the front, but the back as originally built...) with roof terrace / patio area above, and a brick wall dividing the two terraces. This is standard in the road. (They also have a small conservatory joined to the first floor over part of their roof terrace) Some years ago we noticed that the internal party wall below the terrace was showing some signs of damp. We asked the neighbours if they had noticed a similar issue but they refused to engage with us. We hoped it was a condensation issue, and it was only occasional.  Over the years the dampness has got more frequent, and a couple of years ago we had our terrace completely redone, with the old flooring removed, new felting put down, new lead flashing, and decking on top. I stripped the wall below back to plaster and re-papered and painted. Last year the damp returned, but much more noticeably. We use a dehumidifier and can "extract" a couple of pints of water from the downstairs hallway sometimes - regardless of weather. There is black mould at the top of the wall, and it's clear the damp is coming top-down. I've lifted all our decking, put sealant along all felt joints, and silicone sealer between the lead flashing and brickwork that forms the dividing wall between terraces.  Since then there've been occasions when there has been surface water running down the wall, even when it's not rained.  We're pretty certain it's when the neighbour waters plants on the terrace.  The neighbours still won't engage, but we have persistent black mould, the paper is peeling off and the wall is wet from the top.  To check it's not our roof, at times when the wall has been dry I've thrown buckets of water at our side of the dividing wall on the terrace (and this obviously drains down onto the felting below the decking). The downstairs interior wall is unaffected by this - confirming the problem is coming from the neighbour's side. So what to do? Is this something we should be referring to our insurers? If the neighbours fail to fix the root cause (which is presumably perished roofing under their conservatory, or blocked drainage etc), is there anything we can do to stop it affecting us?  The internal wall is structural so I'm not really sure how a builder would approach the problem without access from the neighbour's side too.  We're planning on selling within the next 2 - 3 years but in its present state it's hard to see how someone would take it on, at least without a big price drop.  Any suggestions very welcome! 
    • defaulted debts vanish from your file regardless to payment on the registered defaulted dates 6th birthday   NON defaulted debts will sit on your file for 6yrs yrs from last payment - i e the debt becomes statute barred,-  but that does not automatically guarantee they will be removed.
    • Yes if defaulted but my non defaulted ones sit there
    • but thats how long it will show from settlement payment on your file if you make one or  if you leave as is..same result but far cheaper....   dx

    • Hi,  
      I was in Sainsbury’s today and did scan and shop.
      I arrived in after a busy day at work and immediately got distracted by the clothes.
       
      I put a few things in my trolley and then did a shop.
      I paid and was about to get into my car when the security guard stopped me and asked me to come back in.
       
      I did and they took me upstairs.
      I was mortified and said I forgot to scan the clothes and a conditioner, 5 items.
      I know its unacceptable but I was distracted and Initially hadn’t really planned to use scan and shop.
       
      No excuse.
      I offered to pay for the goods but the manager said it was too late.
      He looked at the CCTV and because I didn’t try to scan the items he was phoning the police.
       
      The cost of the items was about £40.
      I was crying at this point and told them I was a nurse, just coming from work and I could get struck off.
       
      They rang the police anyway and they came and issued me with a community resolution notice, which goes off my record in a year.
      I feel terrible. I have to declare this to my employer and NMC.
       
      They kept me in a room on my own with 4 staff and have banned me from all stores.
      The police said if I didn’t do the community order I would go to court and they would refer me to the PPS.
       
      I’m so stressed,
      can u appeal this or should I just accept it?
       
      Thanks for reading

Hello all you knowledgable people :)

I have a claim ongoing with Welcome Finance.

The proceedings to date are as follows:

 

  • I filed a claim
  • Court mistakenly issued claim as Return of Goods Order
  • They filed a defence
  • Return of Goods Hearing
  • They tried for Strike out based on above
  • Judge refused Strike Out, allocated to fast track trial and sent out Allocation Questionnaires
  • They didn't file their AQ on time and got served with Unless Order
  • They filed their AQ
  • I applied for Summary Judgment as their defence was an admission
  • Allocation Directions and SJ application crossed in the post
  • I received Notice of Allocation and subsequent directions
  • Then.....I received Notice of Hearing of Summary Judgment Application!!

Question is...do I still need to comply with the directions according to the Notice of Allocation or just wait for the Summary Judgment hearing??

 

Also, if my application for SJ gets dismissed at the hearing does anybody know if the exisiting trial dates will still apply or if new directions will be given??

 

I know it's a lot of info, just hoping somebody out there has already been through this or knows of the procedure and can share their experience please :)

 

Any input gratefully received :D

Hello W!

 

Check CPR, but I would think you have to comply with the Directions Order, until such time as you have managed to have the Directions Order cancelled or postponed.

 

I think the Order still stands, and will still be needed if your Summary Judgment Application is not successful.

 

So, perhaps give the Court a call to advise what has happened, and say you feel the Directions Order ought to be put on hold, pending the SJ Hearing.

 

Cheers,

BRW

Thanks for that BRW, I'll get on to the court in the morning :)

I have looked at CPR 24 and the closest thing I can find is that at an SJ hearing if the application is unsuccessful it will proceed as an allocation hearing for further case management directions.

 

I did put on my AQ that I would be applying for SJ so I don't really know why they allocated it so quickly after receiving the AQs. They filed their AQ on 7th June and it was allocated on 11th June! I put my application for SJ in on 11th June too so I didn't let the grass grow, so to speak!

 

If the original directions order still stands and they don't comply what would happen then?? :confused: Would I still just wait for SJ hearing or could I apply for a Strike Out? I don't really want their defence struck out tho, I want a proper judgment!!!

Would it count against me if I didn't apply for a strike out when I could've??

Will do thanks. I'm not 100% on what my standard disclosure should include, the only docs I'm relying on would be my POC, their defence and my witness statement in support of my SJ application; all of which they have already received. Should I include copies of my agreements, statements, CCA 1974, CCA 2006, etc??
