    • Hello and welcome to CAG. People should be along to advise over the course of the day.   Which retailer are we talking about please?   By the way, something seems to have gone wrong with the spacing in your post above so I've popped in some paragraphs.   Best, HB
    • I'm after some advice before I fill in and return the section 172 "request for driver name and address".  I am the registered keeper of the vehicle stated .   The alleged offence (Exceeding variable Motorway speed limit 68mph in a 60mph zone) was committed on 29/07/2020, the NIP is dated 31/07/2020.  On Wednesday the 29th July 2020 a friend and I were driving for a much needed break from South Wales to spend a few days in Yorkshire, we shared the driving for the 4.5 hour journey at just over an hour at a time each.    My problem is this, 1.I have no idea of the location or recollection of the place to which the police refer (M1 Northbound Duckmanton Derbyshire?)  and 2. I cannot say with any accuracy which of us were the driver at that particular time.  I have a clean driving licence and am usually very speed aware using the cruise control at most times.   an offence for a mere 8mph on a motorway with everything that is going on at the moment seems extremely harsh IMO.     I would much appreciate if anyone could offer help / advice at what I should do next? Many thanks  🙁
    • Hello just asking,? I purchased a discount new cooker as it had cosmetic damage, paid £250 After a few days I noticed the fan never went off, I contacted the company and they finally collected the cooker and took it away, ( for 7 days) And fixed it,   It never seamt right? It steamed up in the clock panel and the oven door was mis-lined It had multiple dints in the sides Top panel missing on the door to stop food dropping in, Shelving didn’t fit well Then main fan started to rattle and tap   I put up with all this as it was *discounted Then one day whilst cooking we could smell a funny smell Turns out the wires had melted on the back of cooker I contacted the company again and it took a lot of phone calls to try and get the problem dealt with, speaking to several different staff....I wanted a refund or replacement I had had the cooker 6 months just! I asked for a refund or replacement    I contacted trading standards and citizens advice and they advised me what steps to take! Finally the company offered to replace the cooker, then later changed! As they explained that nothing came in to replace it they were too damaged! ( been told they buy at auction damaged) They wanted to look at the cooker and inspect the damage themselves, so I agreed they collected the cooker, No update, or communication I had to constantly chase them up Nothing was sorted out with 7 days we had no cooker, I threatened Trading standards were now involved Last thing on a Friday in June they rang to say I can collect the cooker it’s fixed!!!! I had expressed all along I didn’t feel safe using this cooker anymore with my family I didn’t want this cooker fixing again ( by whom) They started to blame me and said I should be grateful they aren’t charging me for the repair!   Still today in August this is not resolved  Trading standards have been useless  Citizens advice have told me to take them to small claims court!???? I have had to purchase another cooker  As I’ve been left without one.   I am in a vulnerable situation in life, Im a carer for my husband and have children and have no one to help me sort this mess out! I am struggling with making the county court claim ? What shall I do?   ( sorry for long message) ✨
    • The committee's report is pretty damning, isn't it? The Home Office refused to supply the scientific evidence it said its decisions were based on and you can possibly see Demonic's hand in this - he has form for ignoring select committees.
    • and that facts start to come out 'Inexplicable' failure to quarantine travellers to the UK made pandemic 'far worse', say MPs UK ‘almost unique’ in rejecting border checks in crucial March period – without scientific basis – as hundreds of infected passengers arrived every day   https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/coronavirus-uk-quarantine-travel-cases-deaths-covid-a9653451.html   "Strikingly, it says the Home Office refused to set out any scientific advice to explain the “grave error”, despite repeatedly promising to do so – a stance attacked as “completely unacceptable”."   So even aside from not testing in any way people who returned: "Yvette Cooper, the committee’s chair, said the critical mistake was the decision on 13 March – 10 days before lockdown – “to remove all self-isolation guidance for travellers arriving in the UK”."   "The MPs also pour scorn on the Home Office’s argument that 99.9 per cent of arrivals are obeying requirements to quarantine for two weeks, finally introduced in June. They describe the claim, made by home secretary Priti Patel as “unreliable”, because it appeared to be based only a limited number of compliance checks made and three fines issued."       So not only did Johnsons cronies NOT make any efforts whatsoever to test people returning, and NOT properly check people were self isolating, they actually stopped telling returnees to self isolate for 10 days before the country was locked down as the number of epidemic infections exploded.   Wonder why?   "The committee’s inquiry heard that, in the crucial 10 days between scrapping isolation guidance and the lockdown, up to 10,000 infected people arrived."

    • 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

Hi All

 

After 16 months of letter writing and still no CCA (because I wont give my signature) D&G Solicitors have issued me with a Northampton Court summons this morning.

 

My legs have given in on me and I'm not sure what to do next.

 

Please could someone offer me some guidance?

 

Thankyou

 

Vicky

Thanks for replying

 

POC states-

 

Is for the balance outstanding under a credit card agreement dated 15/09/04 regulated by the consumer credit act 1974.

The defendant has failed to make payment of the arrears of installments as required by the Statutory Default Notice served by the claimant on 6/7/9

 

Thanks

I take it you WILL be submitting a defence, if my memory serves me correct (does it ever?) then once you submit a defence this will give you a further 28 days, you can also get the case moved to a court closer to you.

 

How was the summons issued?

You have all of the correspondence between you and them, just get everything in order, all their replies to your requests, their refusal to oblige due to a lack of signature, which will be their downfall (:pray:)

 

You'll be fine, others better versed in court proceedings will be able to give you much better advice.

It arrived in the post this morning. I presume they will just bring my CCA to court on the day? Is that normal procedure?

Can I offer a defence by saying I haven't received my CCA request?

I was irresponsible and got myself in to a mess with the card. Surely a judge will see straight through me?

Hi

 

Is it for the FULL balance outstanding? Important!

 

You will need to send a CPR request to their solicitors, I will find it for you - this means that they must legally send the documents they are relying on.

 

I assume HSBC are the original creditor and the debt has not been sold? also that you are happy to defend this?

Hi Honeypot

 

Dont let them worry you - sounds like you have a good case as they have failed to comply.

 

You will need to send them a CPR 31 which compels them to comply - or at least it should but will help your case even more if they don't.

 

Give me few mins to find the template i was given and i will upload it for you.

Yes it is for the full amount. It is HSBC and hasn't been sold on. I am happy to defend but I am scared. I did rack up the debt so it's my fault

They must send you the credit agreement if they are depending on it via the CPR request.

 

Don't worry, you are not the only person to get into difficulties with credit cards! The court are aware of the abuse and misselling by banks which is worse than anything you have ever done!

Hi

 

here is the CPR you need to send to the solicitors that issued the proceedings - send it recorded delivery.

 

Also you need to send acknowledgement to the court if you intend to defend this.

 

1. Dear Sir,

 

Re: (Claimant's name) v (Your name) Case No:

CPR 31.14 Request

 

On (date) I received the Claim Form in this case issued by you out of the (Name) county court

 

I confirm having returned my acknowledgement of service to the court in which I indicate my intention to contest all of your claim.

 

 

Please treat this letter as my request made under CPR 31.14 for the disclosure and the production of a verified and legible copy of[each of the following documents

 

1 the agreement. You will appreciate that in an ordinary case and by reason of the provisions of CPR PD 16 para 7.3, where a claim is based upon a written agreement, a copy of the contract or documents constituting the agreement should be attached to or served with the particulars of claim and the original(s) should be available at the hearing. Further, that any general conditions incorporated in the contract should also be attached.

 

2 the default notice

 

Although your claim is for a sum which is not more than £5,000.00 and will in all likelihood be allocated to the small claims track for determination upon my delivering a defence, at this moment in time I have not delivered my defence and the case has not been allocated to a track. In consequence the provisions of CPR 27(2) are of no effect and you should not seek to avoid compliance with your CPR 31 duties by claiming otherwise

 

 

You should ensure compliance with your CPR 31 duties and ensure that the document(s) I have requested are copied to and received by me within 7 days of receiving this letter. Your CPR 31 duties extend to making a reasonable and proportionate search for the originals of the documents I have requested, the better for you to be able to verify the document's authenticity and to provide me with a legible copy. Further, where I have requested a copy of a document, the original of which is now in the possession of another person, you will have a right to possession of that document if you have mentioned it in your case. You must take immediate steps to recover and preserve it for the purpose of this case.

 

Where I have mentioned a document and there is in your possession more than one version of that same document owing to a modification, obliteration or other marking or feature, each version will be a separate document and you must provide a copy of each version of it to me. Your obligations extend to making a reasonable and proportionate search for any version(s) to include an obligation to recover and preserve such version(s) which are now in the possession of a third party.

 

In accordance with CPR 31.15© I undertake to be responsible for your reasonable copying costs incurred in complying with this CPR 31.14 request.

 

If you require more time in which to comply with this request you must tell me in writing. You must tell me before the time for compliance with this request has expired. In telling me you require more time you must tell me what steps you have taken and propose to take in order to comply with this request and also state a date by when you will comply with this request. In addition your statement must be accompanied with a statement that you agree to an extension of the time for me to file my defence. Your extension of time must be not less than 14 days from the date when you say you will have complied with my request and you must state the new date for filing my defence.

 

If you are unable to comply with this request and believe that you will never be able to comply with this request you must tell me in writing.

 

Please note that if you should fail to comply with this request, fail to request more time or fail to agree to an extension of time for the filing of my defence, I will make an application to the court for an order that the proceedings be struck out or stayed for non-compliance and a summary costs order.

 

I do hope this will not be necessary and look forward to hearing from you.

 

yours faithfully

No agreement = no case.

 

If they can not produce the agreement they have no case.

 

Has the debt been sold do you know - or are the solicitors acting for the original creditor?

Have you got any PPI or other insurances taken out with the card?

I am stuck as what to do. I know I racked the debt up but wouldnt a judge just throw the towel at me for defending on the basis of not receiving my CCA as I wont offer them a sample signature?

 

I'm worried they will see me as trying it on to avoid the debt etc

Debt has not been sold just D&G Solicitors acting for HSBC. No PPI I'm afraid.

 

requested CCA back in April 2009.

 

They said they cant send it until I produce a sample signature to verify my identity.

I refused as it's not a legal requirement.

I then put the account in dispute.

 

They sent me a DN in July 2009.

No termination letter though.

 

Loads of letters saying pay up etc. That's it until today when summons was issued.

 

Surely a large bank would not take me to court if they didnt have all the correct paperwork.

Thats what I cant understand.

Maybe they just wait until court and then produce it?

 

I can deal with DCA's to an extent but court reduces me to a pathetic mess.

Vicky - even if they win the case - and that is very doubtfull with what you tell us, the court would only ever make you pay what you can afford - nothing more. This is an unsecured debt.

The judge is only interested in the legallties not making a moral judgement. In fact it is risky for creditors to take you to court as the court is there to protect your rights. They only take court proceedings on the chance that people will not defend them! Also if found in their favour, the court will not allow them to demand payment which is more than you can afford.

 

I am editing the CPR for you a bit and will re-post - you don't have to sign that also.

You DO NOT have to send a signature - the advice is not to - For all you know they could copy it onto an agreement?

 

Send the CPR request in the post above - they are then compelled to send you the documents they are going to rely on in court - that includes the CCA - thats the law.

 

If they dont supply the CCA they can not enforce it - dont worry - just send the CPR by recorded delivery. - i bet they don't have the agreement - why not send it to you?

 

They can not just turn up with it on the day.

Thanks! That is fine now.

 

Honeypot - they are not asking for a charge on your home and cannot do that until they obtain a CCJ and you don't pay what the court agrees. You have a good defence against this anyway.

 

You will need to acknowledge the claim - online and say you are defending it. Then send off the CPR.
