    • Can I just suggest one thing   Ask them how the subframe broke and say you would like them to explain how changing a cv joint affects the sub frame   I'm not an expert but I've changed cv joints in the past and never needed to touch the subframe on a car   The axle itself might pass through the subframe but removing the cv joint usually just entails cracking the old one off with a split bar   I can't help but wonder if they've braced it against the subframe and that's why it's broken 
    • it wouldn't have gone to a (your?) local county court as you didn't reply to the claimform. northants bulk would have dealt with it as it was a default judgement.    
    • Thank you so much for the reply. I have tried to call the court (Torbay & Newton Abbot) but they are short staffed so cant answer ;-( Does the discharge mean it has been thrown out?   On the report is is just marked as the court date 10th December 2020 and under that Discharged. Thank you!
    • I need to repair the lead flashing on my side of a firewall on the roof of a Victorian terrace. It will involve hacking off the cement on my side, installing new lead and reapplying cement. Do I have to notify my neighbour under the party wall act before getting this work done? I was under the impression minor work was not notifiable. I would consider this minor work. From the party wall act:   "Some works on a party wall may be so minor that service of notice under the Act would be generally regarded as not necessary. Things like:  drilling into a party wall to fix plugs and screws for ordinary wall units or shelving  cutting into a party wall to add or replace recessed electric wiring and sockets  removing old plaster and replastering may all be too minor to require a notice under the Act."   The neighbour has got wind of what I am doing and has asked for written grantees that I will cover the cost of any impact on his side and is threatening to invoke the party wall act if I don't I don't want to write him a blank cheque as his side of the firewall is probably is as bad a condition as my side.

    • Hi @BankFodder
      Sorry for only updating you now, but after your guidance with submitting the claim it was pretty straight forward and I didn't want to unnecessarily waste your time. Especially with this guide you wrote here, so many thanks for that
      So I issued the claim on day 15 and they requested more time to respond.
      They took until the last day to respond and denied the claim, unsurprisingly saying my contract was with Packlink and not with them.
       
      I opted for mediation, and it played out very similarly to other people's experiences.
       
      In the first call I outlined my case, and I referred to the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 as the reason to why I do in fact have a contract with them. 
       
      In the second call the mediator came back with an offer of the full amount of the phone and postage £146.93, but not the court costs. I said I was not willing to accept this and the mediator came across as a bit irritated that I would not accept this and said I should be flexible. I insisted that the law was on my side and I was willing to take them to court. The mediator went back to Hermes with what I said.
       
      In the third call the mediator said that they would offer the full amount. However, he said that Hermes still thought that I should have taken the case against Packlink instead, and that they would try to recover the court costs themselves from Packlink.
       
      To be fair to them, if Packlink wasn't based in Spain I would've made the claim against them instead. But since they are overseas and the law lets me take action against Hermes directly, it's the best way of trying to recover the money.
       
      So this is a great win. Thank you so much for your help and all of the resources available on this site. It has helped me so much especially as someone who does not know anything about making money claims.
       
      Many thanks, stay safe and have a good Christmas!

Good morning all,

 

I have a question if someone is able to help...

 

If a defendant files a full defence via MCOL, stating that they don't beleive they owe the claimant money and the reasons why; how long does the Claimant have to instruct the court to proceed once this defence is received?

 

Many thanks!

If this time expires, will it also ensure continuation of the Statue Barred timer? Or does the simple action of filing a claim reset the SB clock, regardless of outcome?

Serving of the claim stops the limitations period.

that's two rather random legal question threads you've started

without the full story

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..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...

a claim was made against me for a debt which had nearly become statue barred.

 

I have filed a defence,

but about 6 months has passed since I did this and the claimant hasn't responded.

 

I wanted to know when their claim expires without a response

and if the action of the claim restarted the SB clock.

 

I am statisfied with the information which has been provided.

Many thanks!

the issuance of a claimform stalls or pauses the SB clock.

 

 

they have 28+5 days then progress things

after that

the claim becomes stayed

and they'll have to pay a fee to progress it

 

 

as andy has already answered.

So when would the SB clock start running again? And would it continue from where it left off, or restart the 6 year timer?

It won't start running again. The claim is stayed by the sounds of it and will be until the claim is struck out, settled or discontinued.

 

If it was struck out and the Claimant tried to issue again it would be an abuse of process as well as SB. The 6 years is 6 years, regardless of if a claim is issued.

Are you saying the issue of a claim does not affect the SB timing? Meaning that if the 6 years expires during a claim, they can still claim, but as soon as it's struck out, that SB timer has run out and they can't make another claim?

 

The SB would have been Nov 2015, they started a claim in Oct 2015.

The claim still shows in MCOL with no response to my defence which was also filed in November.

It'll be stayed forever unless one of the Parties makes an application to restore the claim or strike it out. Sometimes it's better to let sleeping dogs lie.

Yes. You cannot plead SB in your Defence if it was issued within 6 years. However, if the claim is struck out and he tries to re-issue then SB would be the original 6 year period again.

The claim is not SB then.

Thanks for the info! Really appreciated.

 

I know it's not SB, that's fine - but I wondered if it would become immediately SB as soon as it's struck out? Or if I would have to wait a month (as the clock stopped in October and will be continued upon strikeout).

No if its struck out then it would now be statute barred if it was due to become as such in nov 15

It would be as though the claim was never issued
