    • I'm removing two posts here – one because it refers to "… All from the same ethnic background" and the second one referring to the fact that the customer was Spanish. The first, particularly by king12345 has a strong racist tone about it and is completely unwelcome here.  king1 2345 has been here long enough and knows very well that this is not what we do. ==============================================================================   In terms of the building and insurance problem, it certainly sounds if you are being treated very badly and we would be very happy to help. Unfortunately I find your story is rather unclear – probably because there is a lot of narrative and I'd be grateful if you could clarify your story and in particular breaking down the insurance job and the rest including giving their values. Do you know if the insurance money has been paid to the customer or is the insurance company simply waiting for some kind of approval. You say that the insurance company has signed the job off and so this suggests to me that they are satisfied but what worries me is that they may already have paid the money to the customer who is merely withholding it from you rather than authorising the direct payment of the insurance money to you. Your story needs substantial clarification please. Finally, does your customer own the property? If you are not sure then you should consult the land registry website to ascertain the owner of the property

    • Thanks DX re counterclaim. Just to clarify regarding witness should I just put one on the N180 and at court just take a witness statement from partner?  
    • I am hoping someone can advise me regarding my salary. I work as an emergency response driver for a private medical transport company. I work 6 x 24 hour shifts on call(total of 144 hrs) followed by 2 rest days(48 hrs). I work from my home address, with a company vehicle parked outside. During my six on call shifts, I must be available to respond to any task given to me (by phone-call) within a certain time. As you can imagine, while on call I am very limited to what activities I can take part in. Due to the nature of my role and the need to respond within 30 minutes to 90 minutes I am somewhat tied to my home. Obviously I cannot consume alcohol, go for family meals, go shopping etc. Even while attending hospital appointments, popping to the shop I must wear my uniform, take the vehicle with me and be contactable and ready to respond. It has been brought to my attention that on call time is now classed as working time if you must be at the disposal of your employer during that on call time.   Is that correct and if so, should I be paid at least the minimum wage while on call. I am currently paid an annual salary of £22,000 for being on duty an average of 6,570 hours per year which would put my hourly rate at well below the minimum( not including annual leave).   Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Hi caggers,

 

I have received a letter from Mortimer Clarke which I originally thought was to do with an alleged Barclaycard debt but now realise relates to an alleged Egg debt.

 

The letter contains income and expenditure forms and a Direct Debit mandate for me to complete

and states that if no reasonable offer if made within 14 days then they will issue a claim in the County Court.

 

 

I sent a s.77/78 request to Egg in 2010 and received nothing so assumed they had no agreement form to support the demands they were making of me for payment.

 

Should I reply to this Mortimer Clarke letter and if so how?

 

Any help much appreciated. Cheers.

Is this the first letter you've received off MC??

 

When did you take this Egg card out? Pre or post 2007?

I would write to MC with a copy of the cca request you sent to egg in 2010 stating that no reply has been received to your request,

and you consider the ac to be in dispute until such time as your request is complied with

The regulations were amended in 2007 - it pretty much assumes that the banks ensured their agreements were CCA compliant.

Something similar to this needs to be sent, puts them to strict proof and under no doubt as to the state of this account.

Dotty50 - Yes they did. It's Egg though not the Barclaycard one we discussed previously.

I cannot believe that of the 161,000 former Egg card holders who were terminated whilst not in default - all have been made to pay up.

Hi folks,

 

I have received a Northampton County Court claim form dated 14 October 2015 for an alleged debt to Egg.

 

 

I CCA'd Egg in 2010 and they provided an agreement which I was unsure about so I have since maintained the position that I do not acknowledge the debt

. Marlin wrote to me in Feb 2014 and I replied with another CCA request.

They produced no documents.

 

Now I have this claim form. It says :

 

"By an agreement between Egg Banking plc & the Defendant on or around 05/11/2002 ("the Agreement"} Egg Banking plc agreed to loan the Defendant monies.

The Defendant did not pay the instalments as they fell due & the Agreement was terminated.

The Agreement was assigned to the claimant on 31/01/2013.

 

 

THE CLAIMANT THEREFORE CLAIMS

1, 11358.87.

2. Interest pursuant to section 69 of the County Court Act 1984, namely 5011.56

& continuing until Judgement or sooner payment at the rate of 2.49."

 

What do I do now?

Please help.

ceased payments around July 2009. Around this time I wrote to Eggicon explaining job lost and asking for help. No reply received so requested CCA. Unsure of validity of CCA provided so since then have not acknowledged debt. Marlin demanded payment in Februray 2014 so I asked them for CCA. Nothing forthcoming.

Was there a dispute with the original creditor that remains unresolved?

Correct but I did write to them at end of 2009 which I suppose counts as me acknowledging it?

Statute barred. However try and find your bank statements in case they invent some dodgy payment receipt.

I ceased payments July 2009 but wrote to them at the end of 2009 explaining I had lost job and asking for help. Got no reply. Will this not count as the last time I acknowledged the debt and therefore the start of the statute barred period. Or is the statute barred clock started from when I last made a payment?

Earlier you stated the letter was around July. I understand you now believe it to be the end of 2009. I have never defended on this point of law but believe it to be the last acknowledgement Andy O will be more knowledgeable than me.

 

As this letter was to Egg it may no longer be in existence so cannot be used as evidence so forget it unless raised . I would do a SAR request where this information will be available to you.

I agree with Jack.

 

If your defence is SB then they have to prove otherwise and the likelihood of them having the letter from 6 years ago is slim.

 

BUT DO NOT REFER TO THIS LETTER IN ANY CORRESPONDENCE TO ANYONE. :-)

Sorry letter was end of 2009. Can I do a SAR at this point or should it be a CPR request? I'm concerned time is ticking away before court deadline.
