    • Is there a reason they took so long to send the PCN? The car was on hire or a change of address perhaps. As they have not claimed to be using POFA it is important that you do not reveal the identity of the driver. No POFA means they cannot pursue the keeper so just ignore everything from them and their unregulated debt collectors and ignorant second rate solicitors. [Sorry that was a slur on second rate solicitors].  Just ignore them all. To go to Court they need the name and address of the driver so if you ignore them there is no chance they will find out. While that does mean that you are not liable to pay them a penny they won't look at it like that and pretend that you do owe them-probably escalating the bill every time they write. This works in your favour as the most that they can ask is the amount on their signage but they always seem to want to overcharge which gets them a slap.  All you have to do is let us know if they stupidly decide to send you a Letter of Claim [it's probably more greed than stupidity but they do both of them so well it is hard to know which one it is.]. If you do get an LBC come back to us so we will give them a snotty reply which may be enough to see them off. In the meantime go on with your life safe in the knowledge that you owe them nothing and there is nothing they can do to change that.
    • I must confess to not even thinking about telling them, especially since I haven't heard anything from them for years, they weren't on my to contact list.   I always come here for advice before I reply and I am certainly not paying anyone unless I have too ( 1 ccj is being paid at £1 a month)    Since getting my head out of the sand I have been very careful on keeping all letters and taking advice before I respond and keeping copies of all correspondence.        
    • images/posts removed . please do not post jpg picture images directly to a post . read upload and redact in jpg then convert using on of the listed websites there to convert to one multipage pdf only . that way only logged-in,registered and approved caggers are the only ones that can download and see them . else anyone can see them caggers or not.     ... also please just type. there is no need to hit quote each time you post.   ........   this is getting to look better for you. but i cant see how just because you collected the car, by default you have to pay to return it... does work like that under contract cancellation as you know.   dx      
    • you must always inform any debt owners of a change of address in writing by royal mail     as for your other accounts being managed by cabot.. i hope you are not blindly paying them anything without checking enforceability first? else this could explain whats going on..they want to mug you on this debt too!

    • I’m in desperate need of help
       
      I bought some clothes online in may through Evans and paid through PayPal
      returned them all seven days later
       
      I waited the 14days for my refund and no refund came
      I put in a dispute through PayPal but I didn’t get any emails to escalate the case - PayPal closed it. 
      evans said they couldn’t refund the money because PayPal have cancelled the refund because of the open dispute
       
      I contacted PayPal
      they said the dispute had been closed but Evans at no point had attempted a refund.
      fast forward to today
       
      I’ve got copies of numerous messages sent to and from twitter messages as it’s the only way I can contact them
      I’ve also contacted their customer service too
      all I get is PayPal have cancelled refund because dispute is still open.
       
      I have proved that the dispute is closed
      I have got an email saying that if Evans sent the refund they would accept it
      but up until the date I got the email they have not once attempted a refund .
       
       I have sent them a letter before court email
      I have even offered to have the full refund as a gift card just to get this sorted !
       
      I’m literally at the end of my tether and don’t know where to turn next !
       
      i suffer with mental health issues and this is affecting my health and I’d saved the money for a year to buy these clothes as I’m on a low income .

Hello

 

I am hoping for some help please.

 

I have recently had a new bathroom installed from a local company in Bristol and I have had on going issues with them and it has gotten to the stage where we will be attending a hearing in the small claims court.

 

I would like some advice please regarding the admissibility of using other customer's letters as supporting evidence for my case. They have also had issues regarding this particular company and I feel it would be worthwhile if possible to use them.

 

So I am asking really is am I allowed to present these letters of complaint in the small claims court (and if so, is there a protocol I should follow). Also, do you think it will help a case such as this to present such, or will they disregard this as not strictly relevant etc.?

 

Would appreciate any input.

 

Thanks.

I cant see why this would be allowed, or relevant.

 

The only issue before the court is the contractual arrangement between yourselves and the company.

 

Any lack to honour previous or subsequent agreements is irrelevant.

Thanks for the reply. I think it would be relevant as the issues I am experiencing bare resemblance to other customer's experiences and supports my view that their workmanship does not meet the acceptable quality standards.

 

In terms of the strict legality of producing such in the small claims court - is this OK to do - so long as it is declared to the other party of course before? All I have read so far is that in the small claims court grants wide discretion to the judge and the rules regarding evidence are not as strict as higher value claims.

You do, the court wont.

 

It is irrelevant in YOUR particular case whether OTHER workmanship done has not met quality standards. All that matters is whether the workmanship in YOUR case was not met - others experiencing poor quality does not establish this, nor back up your claim.

It would certainly do no harm to obtain letters from other dissatisfied customers. There is a chance that the bathroom company may say that they have never had any other complaints, at which point you could produce the letters.

However, how do the court know that you haven't written the letters yourself?

Thanks for that. So relevance aside - I would be allowed to present them, i.e., there is nothing to say I cannot bring it (I have the other customer's permission)?

 

Again all I have found re evidence in the small claims court is that there is wide discretion given to the judge in determining what evidence can/cannot be used and it is he that determines its relevance etc.

 

Thanks again

It certainly wont go AGAINST you to bring such letters.

 

However, I suspect they will be dismissed out of hand by any court.

:whoo:

 

"not strictly relevant" appears to answer the question.

 

If there is not a particularly relevant fact to be proved, it's extra work for nothing for as far as a judge is concerned and he is not going to thank you for that.
