    • Has the property been cleaned now? Is it the in the same state as before?
    • Please follow the link and read what we have to say about people who pay by bank transfer
    • Hi, yes, those are the people.   It's too late to ask SS to inspect.  This all happened in a big rush between xmas and new year; I complained to the woman I'd been dealing with, she liaised with the MD and came back with the £100 offer, took a couple of days, I refused, she then said I needed to contac the MD. When I emailed him, I got the out of office message back, and then, eventually, the offer of £150 which he deposited, without my agreement, into my account..  So it all took weeks.  I have plenty of photos though.   The social worker saw some of the photographs.  Because of the timing, holidays, everyone busy etc she said she would go by my judgement as to whether Friend should be allowed home (This was before the service was carried out)  I sent her some photos but neither of us mentioned Friend not coming home - nobody wanted him to have to stay in the care home any longer, it was totally inappropriate.  She knew I was going to take some action with regard to the service, but we didn't speak again.     Sorry, trying to catch up with all the questions.. I paid by BACS - it was the only option I was given. They are based in Wallasey, Wirral, and I think they have been there for some time.  I don't think they have disappeared.
    • Yes that sounds correct Commensurate use
    • I don’t have the details to hand, they’ll be on an old IDE hard disk from my old computer and I’ll need to buy an adapter to access those files.   But from memory, I think the case was around 2016 in an English county court. A lawyer was posting progress on a case he was working on, I can’t remember which forum, arguing that Erudios DAF forms breeched unfair contract law.   Erudio settled the matter out of court just before the case was heard when the lawyers client accepted an offer to backdate all his deferments and make changes to future DAF forms.   Very soon after all the posts relating to the case were removed from the forum, I suspect as part of the settlement deal with Erudio.   TBH I wasn’t sure at the time that I was going to be able to use this anyway, given that there was no ruling on the case to refer to.   I just wanted to make them aware that I knew they had granted deferment to somebody who hadn’t used their DAF.   I turned 50 in February 2018.   Strangely, I can’t find a copy of the default notice or their final response.   I say strangely because I have what I thought were all my Erudio letters in a file in date order.   I can only think therefore that they were sent by email and I did have a period were I had to switch email providers and email addresses because emails were being lost, and then when I switched the previous provider deleted everything.   I did manage to backup some of those emails before the previous provider deleted them, but again they would be on my old IDE hard disk, so I don’t have access to them right now.   Sorry I know this isn’t much help.   How essential are these letters?

    • Hi @BankFodder
      Sorry for only updating you now, but after your guidance with submitting the claim it was pretty straight forward and I didn't want to unnecessarily waste your time. Especially with this guide you wrote here, so many thanks for that
      So I issued the claim on day 15 and they requested more time to respond.
      They took until the last day to respond and denied the claim, unsurprisingly saying my contract was with Packlink and not with them.
       
      I opted for mediation, and it played out very similarly to other people's experiences.
       
      In the first call I outlined my case, and I referred to the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 as the reason to why I do in fact have a contract with them. 
       
      In the second call the mediator came back with an offer of the full amount of the phone and postage £146.93, but not the court costs. I said I was not willing to accept this and the mediator came across as a bit irritated that I would not accept this and said I should be flexible. I insisted that the law was on my side and I was willing to take them to court. The mediator went back to Hermes with what I said.
       
      In the third call the mediator said that they would offer the full amount. However, he said that Hermes still thought that I should have taken the case against Packlink instead, and that they would try to recover the court costs themselves from Packlink.
       
      To be fair to them, if Packlink wasn't based in Spain I would've made the claim against them instead. But since they are overseas and the law lets me take action against Hermes directly, it's the best way of trying to recover the money.
       
      So this is a great win. Thank you so much for your help and all of the resources available on this site. It has helped me so much especially as someone who does not know anything about making money claims.
       
      Many thanks, stay safe and have a good Christmas!

Yes, good idea to post up copy of agreement with personal info taken out. If you also list the relevant points that you consider can be included in your defence it will recap what has already been said and then go forward from there. It will be a while before this gets to court, are you likely to be well enough in the future to attend court as LiP as I had a similar situation with my wife and it proved very difficult as we couldn't afford a solicitor, without which she had to attend although I was allowed to speak for her.

However, if I count 14 days from when he sent the docs, it is a week later than the 17 Septermber, so he is counting on me not getting the docs in before 17th IMHO..

 

Glad to see you're watching your back annubis!

 

Re. your defence, what exactly have you got in the way of docs? Agreement, DN, termination letter???

 

Can you post up asap & we can pitch in & help you get this in on time.

Your file contains just the agreement which looks typical Egg.

 

So now to formulate your defence:

1. Is the sum on the POC for the total balance on your account? (seems from other posts that BC are back to their tricks of splitting claims so you need to know where you stand)

 

2. Did you send for a SAR?

If so, did you ask for the DN & termination letter as part of that request?

 

3. Have you found any default notice in your records? If so, can you post it up please?

The sum on that agreement from egg that they sent me is what I owe egg, then BC has added more on and is claiming for more than that agreement states, he says they are costs.

 

I did send for SAR but not heard anything back. I didn't ask for termination letter I don't think.

 

I will see if I can find default notice for you.

What sum on the agreement? It's a credit card, there shouldn't be a sum on the agreement unless you mean the credit limit. :?:

 

And even if you were up to the limit when the account was terminated, haven't you paid something off that total?

 

BTW, he is entitled to add the cost of the court fee & a reasonable sum for the paperwork etc. to the claim. If it's a huge amount, it needs querying in your defence.

 

I did send for SAR but not heard anything back. I didn't ask for termination letter I don't think.

 

They have 40 days to produce the info from a SAR. Did you keep a copy & also send rec. del?

Did you ask for statements as part of that request? When you receive them you may then know better if the sum BC is claiming is correct.

I will see if I can find default notice for you.

 

Be great if you can find it.

Hi,

 

Here are the two documents again that I found sorry :(

Sorry I am useless, I meant balance, not agreement sorry. Those are the only two letters I can find that resemble some form of default notice.

I have never done a defence before so I have no idea what to put. I have until the 17th to get it to them. :-(

 

Ohhh I am sorry, I am having a bad day today and in tears at th emoment. I haven't slept all night again due to my condition and I am just about worn down. I will amend.

 

Don't stress about this. The defence is easy as you don't have many docs at the moment. As long as we have something posted up for you by the 16th, you should make the court by Spec Del by the 17th or you can file online.

These are not default notices so looks like you may not have received one.

The first of these is a LBA, the second is telling you they have filed proceedings.

 

So that CAGers can check your agreement details, can you use imageshack to post the first 2 pages of your agreement please annubis? (the one headed Egg Credit Card Agreement & the following page) The rest of it is standard T&Cs & not really relevant at the moment.

Annubis, on the claim form, is EGG named as the claimant ? I see in an earlier post that you believed that this account had been assigned to Frederickson at some point. Did they write to you and say they owned the account now ?

I think Egg is listed as the Claimant CB (see 1st page).

 

However can you clarify your BK status please Annubis? If you are a declared bankrupt this makes a great difference as to how you defend.

OK, so BK is off the cards for the moment.

 

My suggestion for a defence is as follows. Input from anyone else welcome. You must read it through very carefully before you submit Annubis to make sure it reflects the facts accurately. (xxx indicate where you need to complete with personal details)

 

In the Northampton County Court

Claim number xxxxxxxxx

 

 

Between

 

Egg Banking plc - Claimant

and

xxxxxx - Defendant

 

 

1. I xxxxx am the Defendant in this action & I am a Litigant in Person.

2. Except where otherwise mentioned in this defence, I neither admit nor deny any allegation made in the Claimant’s Particulars of Claim and put the Claimant to strict proof thereof.

 

3. The Defendant is embarrassed in pleading to the Particulars of Claim as it stands at present, inter alia: -

 

(a) The Particulars of Claim are vague and insufficient and do not disclose an adequate statement of facts relating to or preceding the alleged cause of action. No particulars are offered in relation to the nature of the written agreement referred to, the method by which the Claimant calculated any outstanding sums due, the details of any default notices issued or any other matters necessary to substantiate the Claimant's claim.

 

b) A copy of the purported written agreement that the Claimant cites in the Particulars of Claim, and which appears to form the basis upon which these proceedings have been brought, has not been served.

 

c) A copy of any evidence of both the scope and nature of any default, and proof of any amount outstanding on the alleged accounts, has not been served

4. On xxxx the Defendant submitted a request under CPR31.14 for a copy of the agreement. She also submitted to the Claimant a Subject Access Request under the Data Protection Act 1985, requesting a copy of any default notice issued by the Claimant & statements of account from commencement of the account to date.

5. In response to this request the Claimant has only supplied a copy of the agreement dated 30/10/01 & a copy of some terms & conditions.

6. The Claimant has failed to provide a complete statement of account, neither have they provided a method or statement as to how the sum claimed has been calculated

7. The Defendant denies receipt of a Default Notice(s) & puts the Claimant to strict proof of service of such.

8. Under Section 87 of the Consumer Credit Act 1974 (The Act) the creditor must deliver a Default Notice that complies with all of the requirements of Section 88 of the Act and of the Consumer Credit (Enforcement, Default and Termination Notices) Regulations 1983 before the Claimant will become entitled to make any demand for early payment.

The Defendant refers to the judgment of Woodchester Lease Management Services Ltd v Swain & Co NLD 14 July 1998 where, in the Court of Appeal, the court addressed in some detail the issue of the contents of a default notice & concluded that should the notice fail to comply with the Consumer Credit (Enforcement, Default and Termination Notices) Regulations 1983 (SI 1983/1561) it would render the default notice invalid.

9. Service of a default notice is a statutory requirement as laid out in Sections 87, 88 and 89 of the Consumer Credit Act 1974. Section 87 makes it clear that a Default Notice must be served before a creditor can seek to terminate the agreement or demand repayment of sums due to a breach of the agreement. Therefore without proof that a valid default notice was properly served on the Defendant, it is suggested that the Claimant's case falls flat and cannot proceed. To do so would clearly be contrary to the Consumer Credit Act 1974.

 

10. The claimant seeks to claim interest of £xxx and also interest pursuant to Section 69 of the County Courts acts 1984. The defendant notes that the claimant is not entitled to do so and attention is drawn to The County Courts (Interest on Judgment Debts) Order 1991 (No. 1184 (L. 12)) Section 2 (3)(a) which sets out that this is the case where a claim is in relation to a debt regulated by the Consumer Credit Act 1974

11. The Claimant’s entitlement to payment of the sum of xxxx and to interest is denied.

Statement of Truth

I, xxxx, believe the above statement to be true and factual

 

Signed:
