    • I would have thought it easier in small claims.  Your wife very kindly and considerately wrote to her employer offering more notice than she was obliged to do.  No doubt she had the best interests of her employer in mind and wanted to give them adequate time to plan ahead and find a replacement.  To her amazement, her employer took advantage of her kindness and unreasonably treated her notice as taking immediate effect, blah, blah blah.   Personally, I think an argument like that is quite likely to succeed in small claims where they won't be accustomed to arguing the niceties of employment contracts.  It's obvious your wife is being taken advantage of.   Again, I think you are more likely to get an even-handed and fair hearing in small claims than at an ET.   However, I'm not a lawyer and I'm definitely not an employment lawyer.  See what others advise and whether anybody else thinks it would be easier and more likely to be successful simply to sue.  (Oh - and remember if you want to sue them for the money you've got six years to do so, whereas the time limits for ETs are ridiculously tight.  Can't remember off the top of my head but is it something stupid like 60 or 90 days?  Ridiculous).   Of course there may then be issues about getting future references from them.  But if you go down the ET route that'll likely be a problem anyway.    
    • say i was going to write to all these about the debts and try get deal to reduce monthly payments and stop all interest do I write to them first or do I stop payments then write to them ?   Same if I was going for a DRO do I just sort out and apply for that first or stop all payments then apply for it .   Also I see for a DRO it says ive got to go through  an authorised debt adviser so who do i go to about this and at moment we still on lockdown here in wales and not many places open .   Last off ive asked regarding pro rata forms and still cant find any 
    • Yes but I think in a small claims court it will be far harder to prove. I have plenty of evidence to discredit the Director but again it could still not be enough.   She will be a month with no money and I think it’s far more risky than a tribunal where this action alone could result in the desired outcome.   I have said to her to request a face to face meeting to enable both parties to conclude, ideally resolve and at that point we can decide what action we wish to take.

    • 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, I'm looking for advice/comments etc please

 

I was made bankrupt 3 years ago and within that bankruptcy was a loan to a building society.

 

Recently a letter dropped through letter box stating that my wife owed the money and that it was going to court in northampton.

 

Immediately applied on their online service to state that she would be disputing the debt

and wrote to them with a request for the original documents to be provided, which they seemingly ignored,

 

the next correspondence was a judgement made against her saying that she was liable for the debt.

 

Have applied to the court (hearing this Thursday 14th) for judgement to be set aside.

 

We genuinely cant recall whether it was a joint loan, or just taken out by me,

and wife says that if proven that she will arrange to repay,

but as we are not sure, we have taken this course of action.

What prospects do you think that we have?

so what defence are you using at the set aside hearing that she doesn't owe this money?

 

 

the fact that you were made BK has no bearing

as you are both equally liable if she signed the agreement.

 

 

more info needed on the debt please


please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

 

if everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's tomorrow

the biggest financial industry in the UK, DCA;s would collapse overnight.

Sorry, I didnt put on the OP, we had ajoint account, but genuinely couldnt recall whether it was a joint loan or just taken out by myself, hence the request for the original documents, which have not been provided. Debt is approx £6,000.

So an acknowledgement of service was given but no defence issued by the deadline?

I dont fully understand what you are saying,

 

 

but assume you mean that she applied online to say that she would be defending,

 

 

but then did nothing until after the decision.

 

 

This was what she actually did,

having no real knowledge of the court process,

and was waiting for some sort of response to acknowledge the proposed defence,

 

 

and as you know, the hearing went ahead in her absence with no notice of when it was taking place

Forget about what you did and didnt do with regards to the claim....first port of call is to find out if it was included in your Bankruptcy petition.

 

Second....when one partner is made bankrupt, they are no longer be liable for any debts that you have jointly with them. However, you (wife) will still be liable for the full amounts.

 

Your creditors could pursue you (wife) for payment of the full amount of any joint debts you have with your bankrupt partner. This is because when you take out a joint credit agreement, you both agree to be responsible for the full amount of the debt.

 

This is called joint and several liability.

 

Regards

 

Andy

It was included in the bankruptcy,

 

 

the new issue is whether my wife is liable, as we/she cannot recall taking out a joint loan,

 

 

and thought it was a single loan for myself.

 

 

she requested to see the original or copies of the original documents, and they havent provided this.

 

My worry is turning up for the hearing and they suddnely produce these mystical documents,

 

 

or would they have already provided them if they have them?

Because you didnt submit a defence and go through the process of the claim.......you have missed the opportunity of disclosure and requesting sight of the agreement.

Even to do a section 77 request now...it wont be complied with in time for your set a side.

 

The only thing I can suggest is to talk to the creditor and ask was it a joint or single application....have you not got any old statements or documents in connection with the loan?

Thanks for the response, the quick answer is we have no evidence of anything, I suppose if we did, we wouldnt be in this position. Im suspecting we should not go ahead with the hearing as, from what you are saying, we dont have any proper reason for the judge to set it aside.
