    • They refer to the ID in their statement (Para 19)....   Para 6 is all one statement....broken into extension paragraphs   Paragraph 5 is the killer...I have never tried it in mobile contracts before..lets see what the court thinks.
    • Thanks very much Andy for putting your time in it's really appreciated.   I've removed the bit about ID because I couldn't find where I read it, maybe I imagined it. I do quite like the bit about CPR 3.4 (2 a/c) - practice direction.   Out of curiosity more than anything, paragraph 6 has 2 more paragraphs underneath it. Is it fine to have these like this in a witness statement, they don't need to be 7 and 8?   Now let's send this and see what happens next.. 🍿
    • Well you are in a position where if you issue the claim now and they fold, then you could lose your claim fee and also be left with the vehicle. If you return the vehicle to them for repair then there is a risk that if they folded you might have difficulty getting the vehicle back – but because it is in your name, I expect you eventually would. If you decide to issue the claim then frankly I think I would issue this evening. You have pretty well done the 14 days and in view of their letter suggesting that they might fold, I think you would be justified in acting quickly. I suppose that is possible that they will defend – if for no other reason to cause a delay before any judgement is given. If they did defend then eventually you would receive a directions questionnaire which would ask you various questions as to the management of the case and also if you had any orders to suggest. I don't know if you would succeed but I would propose to the judge that the court orders that the defendants may only continue to defend if they pay the sum claimed into court by way of a security. You would justify this by providing a copy of the letter which showed that they were thinking of dissolving the company. If you were able to get this order then if they did not pay the money in, then you could apply for an immediate judgement and then have it enforced by the High Court enforcement officers. However this is quite a way down the line. I would also follow the company https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/company/06840157 so that you would get early notice of any proposals to dissolve it and you might then be in a position to object. Once the claim was issued, I suppose that you could contact them and discuss the possibility of further repairs. I have to say that you say that you don't believe them, but on the other hand it would be very unusual for them to admit to their customers that they were thinking of ceasing to trade. That certainly sounds to me as if they are trying to be straight dealing with things. I think it's up to you whether or not you want to risk the claim fee – but I also think that you need to make a very quick decision on this and if you decide to go ahead, then you issue the claim this evening.
    • so just ignore the overdraft debts ?  
    • Thanks guys for your input,    Yes Andy, same court, my friends wife only checked her credit file when her friend got refused credit and checked hers. I will have a good read of your comments Andy, and update you on how I am going to advise her to proceed. Thanks Again

In a moment of madness (I have a recurring mental illness), I rang the benefits agency and told them (incorrectly) that I had received a lump sum which I had given away a number of years ago - what actually happened was that the money went to someone else but it had been offered to me and I hadn't accepted it.

 

 

Since the 1st of January they stopped all benefits whilst they decided they would investigate what had happened. They stopped the benefits retrospectively - I did not find out until a couple of weeks later when I received a letter from them. So, now we are in February and my rent is not being paid and I understand that I can not apply for a crisis loan whilst they investigate me. It looks as if this situation could go on for some time.

 

 

I have been to a drop-in in my local town where they have started to correspond with the benefits agency and local council - and it seems that there is nothing anyone can do about getting me a loan to manage. The only help that seems to be available is a bag of food each week - but it is not enough to last more than a few days.

 

 

Does anyone know of anywhere where I can get financial assistance to pay for food? I don't think that I can last more than another week.

The best you can do is get help from your GP or mental health professional if you have one like a psychiatrist and then send those information to the dwp, you must let them aware due to your mental illness sometime you would say or do the wrong things in random without being aware of it. You could also show the dwp your bank statement to show proof you do not have any money in there also write to your MP and see if they can help.

 

Trust me unless you have someone helping with food you won't get anywhere, my friend cathy money stopped 9 weeks ago not a letter from the dwp I've been chasing them and nothing the dwp don't care either just make sure the dwp deal with your case quick they can just let things lie around for weeks without a care in the world whether you eat or not.

 

There are charities that give out food like soup kitchen, google on the internet about charities who gives out food.

 

hope you problem get sorted.

Hi,

 

Benefits & Food wise, go to Citizens Advise tomorrow morning, 1st, they will assist in your benefits, be honest with them, they will not judge or shout at you, 2nd, they mainly have boxes/parcels of food which they give out to persons/families in need, these are mainly supplied by food banks such as the Trussell Trust etc. or if they have none they will pass you onto a local food bank who can help you out.

 

About your long-term mental health, you need to see your Doctor, you need referring to a Community Psychiatric Nurse (CPN), hopefully they can assist you and help you out long term and get you back on track.

NEVER telephone a DCA

If a DCA rings you, refuse to go through the security questions & hang up!
