    • Indeed but at 167 pages of whining, bitching and complaining spanning over 4 years it's self-evidently clear what category some contributors to this thread fall into.    
    • They are the insurance lawyers I contacted about the claim.   I just told them I wanted to do an SAR for the call over the phone.   I asked for 3 separate calls to be sent to me. One for the renewal call and 2 others.   They sent me 2 calls which I asked for via email. The only one they didn’t send me. Was the call of my renewal. Where I apparently said yes to all details remaining the same on the policy.
    • I think there's a difference between obsession and wanting the UK to be well-managed and to get the best possible deal for the economy.
    • I remember Ceredigion I think, was it the council that had an ex-science teacher in charge? I think I may have posted the article I read about how their system actually worked.   It's a shame other people didn't follow,
    • Hello and welcome to CAG.   Have you spoken to Santander about the problem and asked about extending further? I'd have thought your situation isn't that unusual so they should have experience of it.   We had a not dissimilar situation a few years ago, fwiw. Our buyer had been messing about for months, or rather his call centre coveyancers had. Like you, every time we looked like exchanging, they raised another query and it all seemed to get stuck on the insurance for a leasehold flat by the management company. In the end, our solicitor gave them a deadline of a few days and said if they didn't exchange by then, we were pulling out.   This was a risky strategy and their paralegal ignored emails until after the deadline. In our case, the deadline didn't help us to exchange but we were able to start again with a new buyer. I know this won't be what you want to hear, but it can work the other way. You could also talk to your lawyer about what can be done, if you haven't already.   Best, HB

    • 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!

Thanks.

But do I reply to them and say again no I'm not providing and the burden of proof is on them?

Am not sure what to reply.

And if I don't reply anything will it be held against me at court?

No and you shouldn't have replied as you did in post 98

Not your problem

You were told 5 times - never to directly send them anything

 

everything through a court...

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

 

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

 

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

Have you submitted a witness statement for this yet?

 

P.S. I agree fully with DX.

Close off all open communication channels with them.

They are on the back foot and are looking for something to claw on to.

It's a load of nonsense what they're saying, so just keep posting on here and ask questions about your next moves.

I haven't submitted anything further no because I contacted the court to amend my defence and as explained I was told to seek legal advice.

 

I would greatly appreciate advice on next steps,

as opposed to being berated over something I clearly don't know the ins and out of (hence seeking advice)

and its easy to say don't panic but when you receive contact from them pressing on supposed legalities then it's easier said than done....

But you ask before doing something..

You didn't..

If you want advice then follow it and ask what to do

Not get panicked and act yourself

 

It would also help you to read other threads too. 1000's here

 

Anyway. No real harm done other that winding yourself up over nothing.

 

Onward and upward

My outstanding question is,

 

given my previous explanations on contacting the court etc

 

do I simply turn up to the hearing with the relevant bank statement,

 

email trail where I requested strict proof of payment and didn't get it,

 

proof I tried to get this from the OC and anything else?

 

I haven't submitted a witness statement because of the court response to seek legal advice.

 

Is there anything else I should be doing other than this?

Yes, you need to submit a witness statement which challenges certain aspects of the claim, notably on the point about it being statute barred.

 

I will pop back on later to help with getting something going. Hopefully we can get some input from Andyorch on the correct process.

 

This claim and thread seems a bit all over the place, so I'm personally struggling a bit to get my head fully around the whole circumstances, but replying to their emails on points like this is only adding to the general confusion. You need only communicate anything under order of the court - anything beyond that is unnecessary. You are the defendant - the onus is not on you to prove or disprove anything, so don't fret about bank statements. The objective will be to pin that task squarely on the shoulders of the claimant.

 

Have you got a copy of the court order for the Summary Judgement hearing? Can you post it up, minus any identifiable details?

See post #69 Andy - http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?450937-Lowell-shoe-s-Claimform-EGG-Pers-Loan&p=4947981&viewfull=1#post4947981

 

It could do with having every page of the WS copied and uploaded in correct order, which would make it easier to follow.

To summarise....

 

My initial defence to them was prove the debt as no details were supplied.

 

Upon sending me their proof,

aka the original loan agreement from 2004 plus an (alleged by me) reconstituted Egg statement showing last payment as August 2010.

 

Having reviewed the Egg statement I don't believe this to be accurate.

Based on a bank statement I have from that time plus the fact the statement has a Santander contact number not an Egg one.

 

My dispute now is therefore that this is statute barred debt and I dispute the validity of the Egg statement.

 

Neither Arrows/Shoosmiths or Egg (via Canada Square) can tell me where these 2010 payments originated from.

 

I've been concerned that the court won't hear my dispute on Monday.

As I've not filed anything formally.

 

I did phone and write to the court to explain and also request that I put in an amended defence.

Their reply was simply to seek legal advice.

 

In the meantime Shoosmiths are emailing me requesting my bank statement.

They have also sent me a further email stating they are filing for an additional £750 in costs.

As advised I'm not responding to them.

Okay thanks balina

 

Well you still have time to submit a witness statement based on your post above and the reasons you dispute their claim...your disclosures will be nil if your initial defence defence states it statute barred...but I would submit a Witness statement outlining the points you raise above and putting them to strict proof re the payments..thats why they want your statements as they know they cant substantiate the statement in post 69

We could do with some help from you.

am not up to speed with thread. but, technically, to amend a defence wld require either the claimants agreement, or the courts permission. both of which requires formality. the latter by way of an application to the court.

IMO

Absolutely ...you dont have to amend anything just because the claimant requests it...nor can they use it against you and as reason to lift the stay and request Summary Judgment.

This Monday coming indeed.

how do I submit a witness statement

given I've one working day left is it even feasible?

And if I don't does it mean raising my dispute on Monday in person is not possible?

Link to post
Share on other sites

this monday is re an SJ app'n following a stay?

your defence was putting them to proof re everything?

any written evidence shld really be done before (were there any directions on it). but, might be ok to submit/present on the day, re what you say eg re they havent proved the account/the payments to show its not barred etc. ie there is a 'real prospect' of defending. or even that they have no prospect of succeeding if it is barred? (see cpr part 24)

am not up to speed, so check with the guys.

IMO

Am I right in thinking I've two options?

 

Email the court and Shoosmiths a witness statement tomorrow.

Or turn up at hearing with one prepared.

 

If they dispute why I've not submitted my dispute earlier

I'm hoping I can explain I did contact the court but to no avail

(there was no direction from them suffice to confirm hearing date and time)

plus I can show email trail where I asked Shoosmiths for proof of payment and queried the statement validity.

That's what I initially thought but upon speaking to Payplan this wasn't the case,

although we had arrangement on another debt in 2007.

 

And they never made any payments to Arrows on my behalf as I never instructed them to nor had any dealings with Arrows directly myself.

Arrow didn't own the debt in 2010 (period covered by the statement), Egg did...right?
