    • Hi.   SJP = Single Justice Procedure. Here's some reading for you https://www.gov.uk/single-justice-procedure-notices   If you want to ask for an out of court settlement, you need to deal with TfL. You could write to them if you have a contact name, there are examples of letters in threads here.   HB
    • Hi,  I have sent email requesting information as to why my original email was not actioned. I did have the case number in the subject line on my email.  I only got a letter from registry trust, nothing else from courts or Shoosmiths thanks 
    • @dx100uk  I have received only the charge for this journey.  Sorry for my ignorance but what is a SJP?  the charge has been made at 21 june  2020 but I received this only yesterday. Now they ask me to make my plea and I have 21 days to do so, but I want to try an out of court settlement. There is not any court date on the papers they sent me now though. 
    • Licensing is only required for quite serious breeders who keep multiple breeding dogs, some perfectly good breeders don’t need a license and some dreadful ones are licensed so it’s something of a red herring.   What breed is the pup?  You don’t say and this ‘breeder’ doesn’t sound like a breeder at all from your post.  That said, they seem to have been quite responsible in that the pup was vet checked and vaccinated before you took it.   Has your insurance company confirmed this was a pre-existing condition they won’t cover?
    • Your puppy is certainly subject to the consumer rights act because it is classed as "goods". You don't say when you bought it – you simply say "recently". I'm not too certain what the law is relating to commercial breeders. You say that this person is a home breeder. Is there any distinction? Should they have had a licence? There are two issues here. First of all – and probably most important – you are talking about the health of the puppy. You may not have the resources but it seems to me that it's important to get this addressed as quickly as possible – both for the sake the puppy and also for your own sake because if you end up having to pay out of your own pocket, according to you is going to get a lot more expensive. If the tooth is causing the puppy any pain or discomfort or any difficulties then it seems to me that you have a clear duty to get it sorted out as quickly as possible. You made the decision to purchase a puppy rather than go to a rescue home – where these kinds of things would have been sorted out – and you obviously made your own decision to go to a breeder who you knew was unlicensed – and am afraid that all of the baggage your filing now probably comes with those decisions. On the consumer rights issue, it seems to me that you have a clear case – regardless of the consumer rights act – because whether the breeder was a home breeder or not, licensed or not, it is clear that the money they were charging – it was done as a matter of trade. You say that this person is a home breeder – and I understand that the rules are that if you read a certain number of letters per year and sell a number of pups then you do need a licence. I suppose you will have to make your own discreet enquiries to discover whether in fact this person is actually operating as a commercial unlicensed breeder. It's not terribly relevant to your case – but on the other hand it would add leverage to your position. I think the way forward for you is to get two independent quotations for the veterinary work which needs doing and then write to the breeder giving them both independent quotations and telling them that because you have the interests of the puppy in mind you are going directly to have the work done by the cheapest quote. Because of the breeder's attitude so far I would include this in a letter of claim. I don't think that there is any room for mucking around with the welfare of animals – especially when they are being used to make profits. That means that you would send the breeder the two quotes, tell them the date on which the work is going to be done, point out to them that has so far they have been completely uncooperative and refused to get involved that you are now sending them a letter of claim and that you will issue a claim within 14 days unless they pay in full for all the treatment and any ancillary treatment. In other words you make it clear to them that the sum you are claiming for the media work may not be the end of the matter and that you hold them responsible as a dog breeder – commercial or not, licensed or not, for the welfare in good health of their animals. Frankly I think you should tell them that you are going to report the matter to the RSPCA – and if you care about your animals – and the others that are being produced by this breeder – then I think that this is exactly what you should do. I think you should also ask the breeder if you can have any tax receipts for the £1200 which you paid. It wouldn't at all surprised me if this breeder has received the money – effectively cash in hand. You should ask them for a VAT invoice or else an undertaking that they are exempt. We will help you all the way here – but I'm going to say once again, that I think your first priority is to get the work done. I'm sorry that you decided to buy a puppy – when there are so many in rescue centres – although maybe not as pretty looking is the one that you have. I'm afraid that this is the kind of thing which encourages "home breeders" and breeders generally – and particularly with unlicensed breeders – it means that they more likely to be sloppy and uncaring about the welfare of the animals they produce. I think you should tell us more about "Vets4Pets".  It seems to me that they haven't done a very good job either – and I would be writing to them and asking them how come they have managed to carry out this assessment of your animal and yet they have missed this important defect. I think it's important that pressure is put on them as well to smarten up their act. Please will you tell us the name of the home breeder.   I hope this advice has been helpful to you. I'm sure that some of my comments have made uncomfortable reading – but as I say, we will help you all the way and I think you should start acting straightaway in the interests of your puppy – which doesn't deserve any of this

    • 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

notdoneyet - do you have any correspondence relating to the dispute with Cap 1?

 

do you mean in relation to my complaint with them surrounding the ppi and charges on my account?

 

Yes, I have a letter from May 2009 which was my request with figures included and there response which came finally in January 2010.

 

Should I scan and add them here?

No great need to post them.

 

It's entirely down to you how you play things going forward, but your best option from where I'm sitting is to dispute the PPI, charges and interest. You'll need to really do your homework if you're to challenge the enforceability of the agreement - even then, you may not have any success in front of a judge.

 

The PPI claim really ought to be taken up with Cap 1, as far as I understand it. However, at this stage, I'd probably be using it as ammunition for defending on the basis of a dispute existing and thereby also challenging the total being claimed.

 

With regards mediation, it's generally accepted that agreeing to mediation is seen as being reasonable. I don't see why it can be judged as an acceptance of debt - perhaps you just want to get across the point that you have no knowledge if the debt unless you receive further information in the form of certain documents.

 

If you're to enter into mediation, then the PPI, charges, interest will definitely be important factors to focus on. You'll need your calculations to be firm and well founded. Maybe you can bring enough to the table what will give them a bit of a headache.

 

Of course, there's nothing stopping you from challenging the eneforceability of the agreement (can it be challenged?) and then going after Cap 1 for the PPI, etc.

 

Your call.

Thanks Shamrocker, I have understood that to be the case with T&Cs myself, but I havent looked into that for a while so will do so.

 

The PPi and mediation is another issue for sure. I have just this morning phoned about mediation and they made it very clear to me that by entering into mediation I am admitting to the court that I owe lowell some kind of debt. I believe this not to be the case and situation in point is the PPI. I made the claim to Cap 1 at least 6 years ago for the ppi paid and charges and they offered to return £16 of late charges only. I disputed this and then they sold the account to lowell, whilst the account was still in dispute - over many issues - but especially on the basis of the PPi owed.

 

So what do I do now? Do I send lowell a PPi claim in the hope that they will return the account to Cap One? Is that likely or how will they proceed?

 

Do I send the claim again to Cap 1 citing that they should never have sold the account to Lowell whilst it was in dispute?

 

Do I do both?

 

Do I accept mediation or decline it on the basis that the debt should never have been sold to Lowells?

 

I really dont want to end up in front of a judge, having sat through mediation, and in his eyes showing from the outset that I owe lowells this money. I am on the back foot here from the outset in that instance.

 

Help! Thanks.

 

Hi

 

Please don’t be frightened by your opponent and mediation as regards the dispute you are involved in, and by that I mean, really don’t worry as to what your represented opponent has to say, whether he (your opponent) is represented by his ‘in-house’ legal reps or by high street practice or by corporate law firm.

 

Anything said or done in mediation is prohibited from disclosure to the Court and therefore your opponent’s assertion that by agreeing to mediation amounts to your admittance of his claim is wholly factually incorrect.

 

Agree to mediation, whether at a ‘round the table meeting’ or in separate rooms, because this will protect you on the question of costs and no matter what you say at mediation, this cannot be disclosed in the proceedings and therefore cannot be held against you and your opponent cannot rely on the same in the proceedings to the dispute.

 

Kind regards

Sham & The Mould - Thank you.

 

I will go for mediation - infact, it was the mediation service themselves who advised me that this was an admitance of owing some debt to the other side, which quite shocked me as I would have expected them to be impartial.

 

I have also worked out the PPI with todays dates brought into things, and it all but cover the fee they are claiming for. So I will submit the claim to Cap 1 tomorrow.

 

I am of the thought not to mention PPi to the other side at this stage. The reason being is that if they get wind of a potential PPI claim being available, they could perhaps decide to be more demanding in how they deal with me and what they expect from me given my current circumstances. Or am I wrong in assuming that?

 

Or, if I were to mention PPI to them and the amounts being claimed during the mediation process, would they at this stage return the account to CAP 1? Or is court inevitable if we dont reach agreement during mediation?

 

Thanks.

Sending a PPI claim to Cap 1 probably won't stop any claim by Lowell. It just means you can't bring the PPI into your defence, as you're disputing that via other channels. At the very best, it get's complicated.

 

Perhaps DX or Andyorch can comment on this? Should notdoneyet issue the claim to Cap 1 or not? Should they just leave the PPI claim with Cap 1 and use it to fight the claim with Lowell? Any advice?

 

Using today's date won't give you the correct total where accumulated interest is concerned - you need to use the default date, as this is when, strictly speaking, any interest should cease being applied to the account. Out of interest (pardon the pun!), can you explain how you reached your total figure in terms of adding compound interest. You may as well give us a breakdown, then we can give a second opinion on whether it's correct.

Hello there NDY

 

In Patricia Jones v Link Financial Limited [2012] EWHC 2402, Mr Justice Hamblen (sitting in the High Court and on appeal), handed down the Court’s decision on the issue as to whether an assignee of a regulated agreement was in fact a creditor within the meaning of s.189(1) of the CCA 1974, the Court pronounced its decree declaring that such assignee was indeed a creditor under the 1974 Act.

 

The definition of ‘creditor’, contained in Section 189(1) of the CCA 1974, is “the person providing credit under a consumer credit agreement or the person to whom his rights and duties under the agreement have passed by assignment or operation of law, and in relation to a prospective consumer credit agreement, includes the prospective creditor”.

 

The Decision

After hearing submissions, Mr Justice Hamblen decided that:

Section 189(1) of the CCA 1974 “clearly contemplates that an assignee may become a creditor”;

the approach set out in Encyclopaedia of Consumer Credit Law, now edited by Professor Lomnicka, was correct and that “the “duties” referred to in section 189 are…those statutory duties under the [CCA 1974] which the assignee has to perform in order to enforce his assigned rights. These duties have “passed by assignment” in the sense that it is by reason of the assignment that the assignee becomes obliged to fulfil them”;

there is a distinction between a legal assignment (where, subject to notice of the assignment being given to the debtor, the assignee is the ‘creditor’) and an equitable assignment (where the original creditor remains the ‘creditor’ under the agreement); and

it was not necessary to add to or change the language of Section 189(1) of the CCA 1974 to reach this conclusion.

 

It therefore followed that a legal assignee of a debt due under a regulated consumer credit agreement was the ‘creditor’ for the purposes of the Agreement. Because Link was the creditor, it was therefore unnecessary to decide the first issue raised in the appeal.

 

Therefore, in your case NDY, Lowell is the creditor and the statutory duties imposed upon him under the 1974 Act passed upon him by the assignment, in this respect Lowell is legally responsible for the PPI on the agreement and jointly liable with Cap1 as regards repayment of the PPI + interest thereon to you. Cap1 are recognised in law as the party with primary liability for the fraud (PPI) and Lowell are recognised in law as the party with accessory liability for the same as a consequence of the assignment of the agreement to them.

 

Further, as regards the PPI element, the document - Certificate of the Insurance product setting out the so-called ‘benefit’ thereunder which relates exclusively to the agreement, is in fact a prohibited article within the meaning of ss.1.7(b)(i) & 1.8(d) of the Police and Criminal Evidence Act 1984 since it has been made and used in connection with fraud (the PPI added on to the loan) in contravention of s.1 of the Fraud Act 2006 and therefore seeing that the two (2) articles – the insurance and the agreement, are intimately related and inseparable in relation to the loan/credit facility provided, in almost all PPI cases the consumer was told that in the absence of the insurance there would be no loan or credit facility provided by the creditor, meaning the PPI was non-optional, therefore the agreement also constitutes the act of making and using of a prohibited article for use in connection with the fraud on you (on all consumers).

 

What this means is that the Courts cannot pronounce a decree for the force and validity of any prohibited article, therefore, Lowell will find that they are unable to enforce the agreement against you on the grounds stated above.

 

I hope the foregoing will be of some help for you on your case.

 

Kind regards

They are supposed to be impartial, so their statement was quite wrong.

 

The Courts do like the parties to have made some attempt to deal with the issue outside of the court. But it doesn't mean that you are admitting anything.

Hi All,

 

Well my house has been full of lurgy but just an update. We had our 1 hour mediation last week, with the case remaining unresolved and heading to court at the end of the year.

 

On the £2200 (figures not exact) debt they offered a F&F settlement figure of £1450. They believe that what they have is a fully enforceable agreement and the chap speaking on behalf of Lowells apparently stated that he had used such agreements in the past to win cases.

What we are faced with is arguing in court on the day that what they have provided is not an enforceable agreement under the CCA.

 

 

Can I ask, in your experience, what is the likelihood of such an argument being successful?

Is it 60/40 in their favour, or more like 80/20...

.I'm just concerned that allowing it to go to court is essentially guaranteeing me a CCJ

whereas if I set up a repayment for £5/month now I may be paying a debt into my 70s

but I'll be able to move on with my life and rebuild my credit at some stage in the future.

 

Also, which option is best for me given that I know Lowell 'own' other debts belonging to me totally approx £30k

none of which will be statute barred until early nxt year given that the CCA request £1 payments were credited to various accounts up until April 2010?

 

I know this is all a bit jumbled so please ask if you need clarification - my snotty baby keeps sneezing over my screen!

£1 CCA being used as payment can be argued that it is wrong to good effect.

 

makes no bearing on your case they have other debts either.

 

as for winning with other like cca returns...simply bravado on their part.

 

as if all else fails

you can always go for a tomlin order and bring in the PPI/charges into play to avoid the CCJ

 

even at the last stages.

if everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's tomorrow

they argue that I entered the agreement with card number etc referencing the agreement exhibited,

yet what they exhibit is the signed application form.

 

hey state that I last made payment to the account 2/2010,

yet as far as I'm aware any payments made to them after 4/2009 were £1 cheques sent with CCA request letters

as that is all I can find in my paperwork, which is very sketchy from mid 2009 onwards.

 

They laterally state that I do not deny I entered into an agreement with CAP1 (which I do) and that I have no valid defence.

They submit that I do not have a valid defence and that they are therefore awarded full claim plus costs of 50p per day, plus court costs of £350.

Stick to your contention that it is statute barred...no payments/acknowledgment made after April 2009...tell the court the £1 payments were for various section CCA 78 requests to Cap 1 and other DCAs...If you can prove its statute barred and can show the court your requests...the rest is irrelevant...application form included.
