    • Thanks DX, I've read these a few times over. I'm feel like I'm pretty confident on the subject.   Do you think I should play dumb and quote the law of property act etc anyway?   The only thing I'm not sure about is the process now, I'm obviously very inexperienced in this and I'm not 100% sure what the sherrifs order is asking of me (post #53). Or maybe I don't need to do anything at all because I'm not submitting any documents as evidence?   The order is post #53 and I'm not sure what they mean by written submissions? is there a form or correct format/process for doing this?   Again, appreciate the help DX and sorry for all the Qs.  
    • Hmm, that is a challenge, my computer ability is limited to copy and paste, which I have included below. Is it very important? I can try and find out but I have the email reply and that is all, sorry   Friday, October 23, 2020 5:28:53 PM To: enquiries@idealwindowsolutions.co.uk <enquiries@idealwindowsolutions.co.uk> Subject: Order cancellation RF14127D   Dear Ideal Window Solutions,   On the 11 of June I signed a contract with you to deliver and install double glazed windows. I was promised to get it done within 8 weeks. The timing was very important to me, I made it very clear to you, and this was the main reason I chose your company. For all kind of reasons your promises did not materialised. After a number of phone calls and emails between us I have decided to cancel my contract with you. I am not prepared to wait any longer, also I have no intentions to install windows during rainy winter time.  Could you be so kind to refund me my deposit of £100 pounds. If after winter time you will get your problems with your suppliers solved please give me a call, maybe we can try again. I will need  new windows anyway. Kind regards,
    • An update - The salesman who has dealt with most of this is off on Mondays which never helps and the senior service person there who I spoke to last week is also off all week.   I got a call from a service advisor today confirming the booking but was concerned I was waiting - explained (again) the story and he understood but on his job card, only had that he had to investigate the tyres and not necessarily replace.  Someone either is not communicating or I've been told lies.  I have gone through the recording and the salesman clearly states he has gone to upper management, discussed it and we will be replacing the tyres and battery to sort everything out.   Sat nav will be resolved tomorrow and they'll be looking at the broken sun visor.  I have also emailed regarding the gearbox service - I have a good friend working at Audi servicing at another group and he had mentioned Audi should be carrying out servicing if due within 4 months or so and this was.  I raised it pre-collection a number of times and was shutdown each time with "if a service needs to be done, it will be done"   Fast forward to today when I got the job card to sign in advance, it clearly states: Date: 20/10/2020 (our pickup day) Carried out MPC & oil service Haldex Reqs gear oil service.   The Gearbox service is due at 38k and the car was sold at 35500 well within the 4k which is probably why their own systems have flagged it. Haldex I'm not sure - this seems to be every 20k I think so due in 4.5k.  Oil service I can't see how they did it as the service history we got from them (verified by another dealer) was from September.   Lets see what they say tomorrow - I have flagged it with the service advisor from today but got no response.   Ironically, the friend did mention they've had other POA buyers book their car in elsewhere only to be told various handover bits were not done - I thought it was typical dealer rivalry talk but maybe there is truth in it.

    • I came across this discussion recently and just wanted to give my experience of A Shade Greener that may help others regarding their boiler finance agreement.
       
      We had a 10yr  finance contract for a boiler fitted July 2015.
       
      After a summer of discontent with ASG I discovered that if you have paid HALF the agreement or more you can legally return the boiler to them at no cost to yourself. I've just returned mine the feeling is liberating.
       
      It all started mid summer during lockdown when they refused to service our boiler because we didn't have a loft ladder or flooring installed despite the fact AS installed the boiler. and had previosuly serviced it without issue for 4yrs. After consulting with an independent installer I was informed that if this was the case then ASG had breached building regulations,  this was duly reported to Gas Safe to investigate and even then ASG refused to accept blame and repeatedly said it was my problem. Anyway Gas Safe found them in breach of building regs and a compromise was reached.
       
      A month later and ASG attended to service our boiler but in the process left the boiler unusuable as it kept losing pressure not to mention they had damaged the filling loop in the process which they said was my responsibilty not theres and would charge me to repair, so generous of them! Soon after reporting the fault I got a letter stating it was time we arranged a powerflush on our heating system which they make you do after 5 years even though there's nothing in the contract that states this. Coincidence?
       
      After a few heated exchanges with ASG (pardon the pun) I decided to pull the plug and cancel our agreement.
       
      The boiler was removed and replaced by a reputable installer,  and the old boiler was returned to ASG thus ending our contract with them. What's mad is I saved in excess of £1000 in the long run and got a new boiler with a brand new 12yr warranty. 
       
      You only have to look at TrustPilot to get an idea of what this company is like.

    • Dazza a few months ago I discovered a good friend of mine who had ten debts with cards and catalogues which he was slavishly paying off at detriment to his own family quality of life, and I mean hardship, not just absence of second holidays or flat screen TV's.
       
      I wrote to all his creditors asking for supporting documents and not one could provide any material that would allow them to enforce the debt.
       
      As a result he stopped paying and they have been unable to do anything, one even admitted it was unenforceable.
       
      If circumstances have got to the point where you are finding it unmanageable you must ask yourself why you feel the need to pay.  I guarantee you that these companies have built bad debt into their business model and no one over there is losing any sleep over your debt to them!  They will see you as a victim and cash cow and they will be reluctant to discuss final offers, only ways to keep you paying with threats of court action or seizing your assets if you have any.
       
      They are not your friends and you owe them no loyalty or moral duty, that must remain only for yourself and your family.
       
      If it was me I would send them all a CCA request.   I would bet that not one will provide the correct response and you can quite legally stop paying them until such time as they do provide a response.   Even when they do you should check back here as they mostly send dodgy photo copies or generic rubbish that has no connection with your supposed debt.
       
      The money you are paying them should, as far as you are able, be put to a savings account for yourself and as a means of paying of one of these fleecers should they ever manage to get to to the point of a successful court judgement.  After six years they will not be able to start court action and that money will then become yours.
       
      They will of course pursue you for the funds and pass your file around various departments of their business and out to third parties.
       
      Your response is that you should treat it as a hobby.  I have numerous files of correspondence each faithfully organised showing the various letters from different DCA;s , solicitors etc with a mix of threats, inducements and offers.   It is like my stamp collection and I show it to anyone who is interested!

In respect of counterclaiming. I was correct, you should have made any counter claim at the time of submitting your defence as a "part 20" claim.

 

If you wish to do this after submitting your defence you will need to make an application to the court for permission - there is a fee for this and also a risk of further costs.

as i understand you have the aq, but not returned yet? is this small claims, or?

as you didn't do one with your defence looks like you would need the courts permission.

can the aq include request for such permission? otherwise, prob in form such as n244.

in any case, once permission then would need to file particulars of the counterclaim (cpr 20.4)

i have returned the AQ as it had to be in by the 16th.

It is the small claims track.

 

the defence is that I have had an account with vanquis but they wont send me any paperwork to prove that the account has a CCA , or a default notice etc..

. They havent sent anything.

It is now awaiting allocation to the local court.

 

However I have now had a chance to go through all the paperwork sent and have found a number of late payment etc charges and these have been put in the CI calculator.

if they apply upto the date that vanquis sold the account it comes to about £700.

 

If they apply upto the date of settlement, for instance the begining of my claim being lodeged it comes to £2600 .

 

The balance being sought by lowells is £2400.

 

Now bearing in mind there was no paperwork prior to defence having to be submitted

I am hoping I can apply to the judge, when it is allocated one, to counter claim now that the account info has been supplied.

 

im not bothered about getting ny excess money out of vanquis or lowells I just would be happy with them walking away.

ok. they prob won't have an actual copy of your dn (even if one was actually sent), but they would ordinarily need to show on balance that one was sent, and was compliant. though without any proof to the contrary it may be difficult to rebut compliance assuming j accepts one was sent. does the sar info come up with their comms logs re things in/out?

as for original agreement paperwork, maybe they don't have any, which could be also one reason for their non reply to your cpr request (it being small claims could be another).

check with andyorch etc re doing your counter claim etc.

just to add, you mention poss having to amend defence as well. afaik, this can be done with the consent of the claimant if they agree, and if they don't consent then with the courts permission. cpr 17. nb poss costs consequences may ensue.

Hi, ok some important questions and some help please. It all went quiet for a while after I was told it was being sent to my local court. I havn't filed a counter claim yet as I was told by the bulk court to do nothing until I heard from my local court. That was about a month ago. Anyway today a lot of papers arrive from the Chelmsford county court. they state that the hearing will be on the 19th december at the small claims court. Right the thing i need help with is the following. 1.What form do I use to send to the court for a counter claim and if claiming for compound interest am I claiming for restitution? 2.If so any idea where I could find particulars of cliam for that. they are just penaltycharges (late payment etc) pretty standard and I have done the CI sheet. 3. I take it i agree to mediation? But also I would like to get the counterclaim in before that starts as it will give me a bit more leverage 4.What documents do I have to send them? All I have is the SAR they sent me and the original letters asking for the account to be suspended due to finincial hardship (wife lost job) all ignored. Then the CCA request then the debt not acknowledged letter. All pretty much ignored. only one answered was the CCa request with aphotocopy ot t&c's. 5.Can I ask for disclosure order from the judge as they still havnt sent a CCA even with the SAR request and I still have never seen one. If so what form do I use? Please help as the deadline is now approaching Geoff

Defendant is asking the court to make an order for the following.

 

The defendant seeks the disclosure and the production of a verified and legible copy of each of the following documents mentioned in the Particulars of Claim:

 

1: the original signed credit agreement as regulated by the Consumer Credit Act 1974. If the document relied on is a document bearing an electronic signature then the defendant requests that there is verifiable proof that this document is linked to the defendant and contains all of the prescribed terms.

 

2: the document assignment showing the claimant has a right to enforce this agreement

 

3: statement of account or statements showing how the amount being claimed has accrued. This statement should include any default/penalty payments.

 

4: default notice The Claimant was asked by letter (recorded delivery) on the 16th June 2013 for copies of this document in order that the claimant could file a defence. They refused to provide copies of these documents. It is impossible for the defendant to mount any comprehensive defence unless these documents are made available for inspection. The Claimants Particulars of claim are vague and give no details regarding these documents, how or where they were signed, the contents or indeed if the claimant has any right to enforce any alleged debt.

 

The defendant maintains that without the ability to mount a comprehensive defence then the interests of justice are not being served and requests that if these documents are not supplied within 28 days this action is without merit and the claimants case should be struck out. The defendant also requests that the court allow the defendant a stay of 28 days in order to file a counter claim against the defendant. The reasons for this are as follows; The Claimant brought this case against the defendant and supplied no supporting documentation before filing their claim.

 

The defendant was compelled to acknowledge the service within strict time limits and file a defence with only vague and limited information. In the meantime the defendant made a Subject Access Request under the Data Protection Act in order to obtain details of this account. This request took approximately 28 days to arrive. After that time the defendant has had time to study the account details and now believes that the Claimant has levied unjust penalty charges on the account and charged a rate of compound interest at 29%.

 

The defendant maintains that this constitutes unjust enrichment by the claimant and wishes to claim these monies back from the claimant. The amount of money the defendant wishes to claim is £2500 which is more than being claimed by the claimant.

 

It is requested that the court orders a stay of 28 days in order that the claimant may be compelled to disclose the above documents and that the defendant be allowed to file a counter claim against the Claimant.

Point 4 - the default notice - was this requested by "letter" or by way of CPR31.14 ?

 

Aside from which, it is most unlikely you would receive a copy as these are templates with the account holder's details inserted.

 

They could provide a "sample", but that would not prove there was any incorrect information or non compliance with the mandatory/statutory requirements.

 

The best they could do, I would think, would be to provide evidence by way of their communication logs that one was printed / sent.

sorry prob not being clear.

 

The default notice was requested as part of the disclousre and so was the credit agreement.

 

Nothing has been sent .

 

No reply

 

What Im trying to do is avoid being ambushed by being sent all these documents as part of the claimants bundle 14 days before court.

 

Im trying to get the judge to say give him the docs now and give him time to study them.

 

I am hoping to get some disclosure before hand as at the moment they have disclosed nothing.

 

That makes defending very difficult.

 

Also I want to ask the judge for permission to counter claim.

 

I couldnt earlier because I didnt have the account information until recently.

 

When I spoke to MCOL they said wait until a judge is allocated then ask him.

 

What I need to know is how to ask him?

see civil procedure rule part 20.4 etc and associated Practice Direction 20 para 1.1, 1.2, 2.1 etc ie if permission is required then via an 'application notice' including the (now) 'additional claim'?
