    • The Independent are saying that Boris is dropping the promise of not allowing US chlorinated chicken, hormone-fed beef and so on.   https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/chlorinated-chicken-us-trade-talks-boris-johnson-trump-a9549656.html#gsc.tab=0
    • The problem with these small debt amounts is that they can hang around like a bad smell. Every now and again you will start to receive letters followed by phone calls. Then it will go quiet and you will have another debt company chasing you. This could go on for many years.   Ignore DCBL as advised.   Send a complaint letter to ELE/Engie, asking why they have asked DCBL to chase a debt, when ELE have never sent any such bill to you. Then explain that you received a final bill relating to address xxxx and you paid it. If somehow there had been a billing error, ELE were advised of your new address, so they should have written to you at the new address.        
    • Of course it could be the same company trading under variations of the same name in order to dilute their bad reputation. In terms of the money you paid, section 15 of the Supply of Goods and Services Act says that where a price for services has not been agreed then a reasonable price will be implied. I gather from what you have told us that they give you the price in advance and you agreed. I'm afraid that on this point, you would be bound to pay the price because contract law does not help people to make good bargains. It simply requires the people stick by the bargains they have made. On the other hand, if they undertook to do a certain job of work and to achieve a certain result – and that result wasn't achieved then you certainly have an action against them. The problem is that a company like this may be difficult to get hold of unless they have got a very clear office or workplace and some assets. The second problem is that you would probably be required to have given plumbforce the opportunity to come back and try again – and unfortunately you didn't do that. This means you tried to make a claim against them, they would probably argue that these plumbing problems they always take one or two goes to fix and that a reasonable person would give them an opportunity to sort it out before going elsewhere. I'm sure you're absolutely right and these people are completely overpriced – and it seems that they have done a bad job – and of course the reviews don't do them any favours. However, I think you're going have difficulty getting your money back on this – although if you want to try, will be very happy to help you – but I'm sure that it will go to a small claim in the County Court. Of course this would be an interesting exercise for you if you have the energy. It's quite simple – but of course you do risk your claim fee and your hearing fee if you lose. I can imagine that if you produced evidence of their reputation and what has happened in court that the judge will be disposed to find in your favour regardless of the arguments which I have suggested that they might put forward. The final risk could be that they would say that you are only entitled to recover the cost of the second plumber required to finish the job that you had paid Plumbforce for. In other words about a hundred quid. It's not a bad argument – I don't know if it is a winning argument – and as I probably wouldn't bother to be represented, they might not think of it for themselves. However, I'm just letting you know of all the possibilities in this problem. Of course I think one of the lessons view is to make sure that you get at least two quotes for everything – even if it seems to be an emergency. When your new home, it's worth making sure that you gather a list of reliable support services – either from your experience or from the experience of neighbours who will already have been through it. That way you can be reasonably certain that if you have any other problems with heating or lighting or water – et cetera, you will have one or two numbers to hand that you can call on with a certain amount of confidence.

Nothing from the court at all, last communication from them was the case was struck out as per the order.

 

 

I've called the court and they stated there was a note that the case was being reviewed "marked urgent " by the Judge and all they could advice was that directions on that outcome would be provided.

 

Sounds ominous,

do I submit a witness statement in defence of the application or sit tight,

 

 

seems strange to respond to the claimant and not wait for a response from the court stating they are willing to take a defence statement from me in relation to the application.

 

thoughts?

 

if their app'n is not dismissed outright by the J, then you will (should) have the opportunity to object accordingly. it wld be surprising if the J grants their app'n without at least the formal oppo to object/a hearing. as posted, you wld then normally do your formal ws/objections.

Today I've received a Notice of Hearing of Application, which states as follows:

 

The hearing of the claimants application dated 18th November 2016 (they have included the application from the claimant), will take place at 10:30 am on the 3rd January at my local country court.

 

So we're actually going to court after all, is this where I present the witness statement I wrote defending against the claimant seeking relief from sanctions ?

A simple covering letter and the witness statement we already produced is all that's required, issued to both the claimaint and the court?

Yes and of course you must attend the hearing to fight and support your statement.

Thank you Andy, I will do just that.... some of their statements within the witness statement are either complete fabrication or so busy litigating people, that their too busy to handle it and are making mistakes.

Despite the claimaints application notice to seek relief from sanctions without a hearing, I'm in court 10:30am Jan 3rd to defend the claimaints application and ensure the order remains struck out, feeling positive as I've done everything as best I can.

 

Thanks to all at CAG for the help this far, especially Andy, thank you all, I will update you once its completed.

The results of the case today

  • The claimant stated that a case of a nervous breakdown was the reason for the breach, I requested evidence of the illness, but none was availble.
  • The claimant stated that the breach was insignificant as that there was only one, I stated that continual breaches and the lack of disclosure meant it was prejudicial in this case.
  • The claimant stated that the defendant was also in breach, I provided evidence that full disclosure had been submitted and evidence of postage was provided, the claimant withdrew this point.
  • The claimant stated they had requested additional time during directions in the spirit of over-riding objective, I stated they the claimant requested additional time for mediation, but they neglected to contact me.
  • The defendant suggested that the late payment of the court fee was also non-compliance and presented further evidence to highlight the point.
     
    In my closing statement, the claimant stated the debt was still owing. I had requested documents via CPR 31.14 and since this was denied, full disclosure was essential to prove the claimant had a case to present, regardless of what my position was to defend, with no documents, there was no case to defend.
     
    The case was a collection of failures by the claimant, many orders had been breached, including the unless order and had there been a case to submit, the actions of the claimant were prejudicial to the defence, as well as wasting judicial time and costs for all parties, a complete disregard for due process and therefore serious.
     

 

The application for relief from sanctions was denied and the case found in favour of the defendant

Good point. I neglected to ask. It also wasn't mentioned. The sanctions were denied and the unless order stated the claimant shall pay costs, so I'm assuming it still stands.

 

Do I wait for confirmation in writing from the courts or can I submit costs, something like as follows, what are your thoughts?

 

 

The application to seek relief from sanctions was denied in the County Court, 3rd January 2017.

 

Therefore, the claim stands struck out pursuant to the order of 5 October 2016, the claimant shall pay the defendant costs of the claim, expense sheet attached.

same as andy.

the original strike out order with its costs now still stands (they got no relief from those sanctions :)). unless the J ordered anything different re those costs following today.

ie reasonable costs as per that order, plus maybe your reasonable costs for their failed application hearing today?

ie, maybe wait see what the formal order re yesterday says.

if it includes costs for that hearing, happy days. if not, could still be worth a try. on top of the still standing original order. :)

The claimant ignored all my requests for costs, despite the order, I also sent a follow up letter to the courts, I got no response.

 

Based on the fact I now have no debt's, nobody chasing and I can just get on with my life, I guessed it was just best to move on in victory.

 

thank you CAG, this and many others one even bigger issue were resolved with your help and I won in all cases, thank you.
