    • ouch you really have been flying kites here and letting the claimant control things. it is worrying that the sheriff has tried several times to nail you about this (factious) payment,  but its also lucky and interesting to see he has not shut the door on your new issues . typically the situation you see yourself in, is one that we put the claimant in by our std defence (that you are reading now)    i think a bit of crawling is now in order( for want of another word) and it needs to be made 1000% clear to the sheriff ( even if by a little white lie) that it transpires there most probably never was any settlement made to HBOS by the ex   some vague explanation that he has confirmed he never did, and bring in the fact that he is a currently deployed by the UK military forces abroad we believe and communication has been to put it politely very difficult due to the nature of his deployment..it might also now be time to mention the mental issue ( with proof) , your daughter suffers from and how these obviously contributed to the situation and p'haps of being thus exploited by the EX whom if one were to be honest m'lud, is a bit of what someone would describe 'as a rouge'.   then your defence focus needs to switch to  (a) Provide a copy agreement/facility arrangement along with the Terms and conditions at inception, that this claim is based on. (b) Provide a copy of the Notice served under 76(1) and 98(1) of the CCA1974 Demand/Recall Notice and Notice of Assignment. © Provide a breakdown of the excessive charging/fees levied to the account with justification. (d) Show how the Claimant has reached the amount claimed. (e) Show how the Claimant has the legal right, either under statute or equity to issue a claim. (f) Show how they have complied with sections III & IV of Practice Direction - Pre-action Conduct.   particularly a.b.c. explaining in concise but brief detail why each if not produced , is fatal to any enforcement of an OD debt claim   have you yet included  The court will be aware that penalty charges and the recoverability thereof have been judicially declared to be susceptible to assessments of fairness under the Unfair Terms in Consumer Contracts Regulations 1999 The Office of Fair Trading v Abbey National PLC and others (2009). I will contend at trial that such charges are unfair in their entirety.   in anything to the court to date.        
    • Re a possible s75 claim - is your Amex card a credit card?  I ask because it certainly used* to be the case that some American Express cards, although commonly described as credit cards, were actually charge cards (where you had to pay the whole of the outstanding balance at the end of the month) and were not credit cards - and therefore not eligible for s75 claims.   *  I suspect that these days all AmEx are credit cards, but you might want to check to be sure.  If it isn't a credit card you might want to consider what you use it for.
    • In reply to your earlier message, the payments were made regularly to the S/C and A/C that I provided.  The payment was always made to this account for the card using the PAN number, however the error payment was made without any reference to the same. Lloyds bank changed the reference number from the PAN of the card to 2686XXXX not sure who changed it to this if it was Lloyds or Lowell or when it was changed.  Then subsequently Lowell changed the A/C number again to their one that they quoted on the POC.    All I can ascertain is that the payment was made from Santander to the A/C above in error but after Lloyds had sold the Debt and Assigned it elsewhere. However, according to Santander the payment was made with no REF number sent with the payment.   I also received the order from the court yesterday which I have attached. There are several items that the court is asking to have for the hearing but haven’t had anything from the Claimant.   What is the best next course of action as the court is asking that we attempt to resolve this before the hearing?   Court Order.pdf
    • Car value apparently £2200. ( post #3 )   Car hire possibly £3000.   Wonder why the third party Insurers Admiral are refusing liability to pay !   Not sure ths is really about who is at fault for the accident, but is more to do with AX and their expensive courtesy car.   Pretty sure this claim would have been settled by Admiral, had the Sister dealt with this claim not using AX.   Think that a complaint to AX should be made, but possibly after sending them an SAR to request all information including any phone call recording where any courtesy car was discussed.

    • 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!

Hi Caggers!!!

 

Once again I'm back with another claim for Default charges on BPF's loan.

Briefly info about the loan, I took a digital camera on finance from Jessops in new year's day of 2008. The finance was facilitated by Barclays Partner Finance. The duration for a fixed-sum loan agreement was 47 months (28.8% APR) and my first payment was due 12 month after the advance date.

 

In 2013, I received a letter from DCA demanding a repayment for a 3 figures debt. I then send then a letter that I'm not aware of such and such date and if then want to pursue it they must provide me with all relevant details regarding the debt.

 

To my knowledge this loan was finished in 2011 and even the direct debt was cancelled after a 47 months from the advanced date of the agreement reached. Then the DCA provided to me the loan Agreement signed copy. I sent them another letter demanding statement of the account.

 

I then send them CCA and SAR followed but in all attempts were unable to provide me a account summary. It was like funny game for 2 years, once they send me a letter; I kept remind them account summary then they go quiet for few months and repeat it again.

 

I even SAR Barclays to get access for the account summary which was unsuccessful attempt as well.

 

After I notice the damage their adverse note cause on my Credit file I reported them to FOS. Finally after 8 weeks I received the account summary and I was shocked.

 

June 2008, the Direct debit failed on the due date,

2 day later I was charged £20 for Unpaid DD/cheque chg,

then 2 days later BPF made another attempt to collect the unpaid Direct debit which failed again.

3 days after the last attempt I was charged for default sum L1 and default sum L2 after 6 days later.

As you can see in a space of 13 days I was charged £65.

 

As that is not enough, the followed 12 months I was continuously charged £45 as Default sum L1 and L2

despite of the Direct debt collected on the due date in each month which resulted £605 added in to my debt.

 

I have already sent BPF a preliminary letter and LBA , and received no response from them. So tomorrow is due date to file N1.

 

The experience I gained last year through @Slick132 and @SabreSheep support,

I decide to start this thread for benefit of other and seek more support in this journey.

 

I will shortly up load a POC draft for this matter and you are all welcome for any contribution.

 

Kind regards

Hi Ewgm,

 

1. Did they fail to collect the June 2008 pay't, despite repeated attempts.

 

2. Did they tell you about the failed DD and the default chgs they were adding each month.

 

3. When you cancelled the DD mandate after the final pay't was paid, did they tell you about the alleged arrears.

 

4. Is it the case that you do, in fact, still owe them the missed payment.

 

5. Or were there any other missed or late payments.

 

:-)

Hi @Slick132

 

 

Hi Ewgm,

 

1. Did they fail to collect the June 2008 pay't, despite repeated attempts.

Yes! they failed on both attempts

2. Did they tell you about the failed DD and the default chgs they were adding each month.

They did not and even if they did, then I should received a copy when I issued a SAR to both Barclays and DCA

 

3. When you cancelled the DD mandate after the final pay't was paid, did they tell you about the alleged arrears.

They sent a letter to my previous address as its shows on their files records

 

4. Is it the case that you do, in fact, still owe them the missed payment.

I get your point and it might be true however on the account summary it should have shown L1, L2, L3 and default the whole account. Instead of kept issuing monthly Default Charges whilst kept collecting direct debit

 

5. Or were there any other missed or late payments.

Yes, they were 2 missed payment but were all collected on the second attempt and were all before June 2009

At point 8(d), you need not list a breakdown of the penalty charges amount. You can just say, "Default charges totalling £xxx were added between September 2009 and June 2012. Details of the default charges is set out on Schedule 1."

 

Any monthly payment(s) that remain unpaid can be dealt with as part of settlement negotiations.

Thank you a lot mate,

 

Point noted and amendment will be done asap.

:-)

 

But there is a funny thing which I failed to mention on the introduction, the first time DCA supplied me the loan agreement sheet, I contacted BPF to seek further clarification about the loan. To my surprised they person on call told they don't have any records in their system concerning the account. I tried another day and received the same answer then I issued SAR to Barclays which in return there was no single paper related to the account.

 

Then, do you think that could be a reason for BPF not to reply my LBA?

 

Thank you again

Also, at point 16, do you think there is a need to mention "schedule 2" instead of "schedule1" ?

Hi again,

 

The impression I get here is that BPF were trying to avoid responding to your reasonable requests in the hope that you'd give up. They hadn't reckoned on you being a CAGger !!

 

Ignore what happened by phone and stick to your papertrail !! Keep everything in writing.

 

Who and where did you send the Prelim and LBA to.

Hi @Slick132

 

UPDATES!!! As it stands now the matter is on Barclay's Solicitors (TLT). On 8th of June the CCMCC sent my claim to BPF which was reffered to their Solicitor (TLT). However, on 16th of June the BPF's solicitor did a submission for extension as requested for another 14 day to file their defence which end this week Wednesday.

 

Because I have dealt with the Barclays solicitor (TLT) before on my Credit Card claim, then on 27th June, they sent me an email asking me to agree third of my claim as a full and final settlement of my claim which I refused.

 

then today, they sent this email actually requesting for more time to file their defence.

 

"Whilst our client intends to defend the whole of your claim (as set out in our letter dated 27 June 2016), our client recognises its obligations to the Court with respect to resolving its disputes, where possible, without unnecessary use of the Court's resources. Our client is clearly engaging with settlement on this matter (having made a formal offer).

 

In accordance with the Civil Procedure Rules (CPR), Rule 15.5(1) the parties may agree that the period for filing a Defence shall be extended by up to 28 days.

 

I am seeking further instructions from our client with respect to settlement, however I note that the Bank's Defence is due to be filed on Wednesday. In the circumstances, and to save unnecessary time and expenditure on both sides, please would you confirm whether you would be willing to agree an extension of 28 days for the Bank to file its Defence (and I shall notify the Court in accordance with CPR 15.5(2))."

 

So my question is whether what they are trying to do is an ethical? Or just a tactics using legal loopholes to delay the matter? Finally, as they had 56 days already, should I refused their request? And I do what are the consequanses to my claim?

Hi Ewgm,

I'll seek further input on this for you.

I would decline the extension, they cant say in one breath that they dont want to waste court time and thus make an offer, then try and manipulate the system to drag it out.

I would point out that the initial 14 day extension should have been plenty of time to file a defence.

If they dont file, request judgment in default

Hi Ewgm,

They did not Sir, the initial 14 days extension was direct requested through CCMCC as it offered once the normal 14 days to respond on my claim was served to them.

 

 

I'll seek further input on this for you.

 

:-)

 

I contacted the court after submitted my claim and I was told that my claimed was served to BPF on 08th June and they have 14 days to respond by filing their defence or they might seek extension of extra 14 days through the court. However, if they failed do all then i'm entitled to receive full payment of the claim as failed to respond in a reasonable time according to the law.

I dont have much experience on this issues, however my question is; dont u think they might say I failed to be reasonable to their request or at this stage their opion does not count as they had 28 days already?

As they have made an offer to settle, albeit too low, they no doubt dont want to go anywhere near court.

Imho it is a request, which you can refuse, it only gives them more time to faff about and if they intend to settle at some point its simply abusing process.

 

If the situation was the other way around, do you think they would allow you a further 28 days? Or just request a default judgment?

 

I know what i would do but is obviously your call

If they have already had 56 days ...then CPR 15.5 is not applicable...they must make application (n244) to exceed beyond this.

 

Agreement extending the period for filing a defence

15.5

(1) The defendant and the claimant may agree that the period for filing a defence specified in rule 15.4 shall be extended by up to 28 days.

Hi @Andyorch

 

Hi Andy thank you for the insightful info, however when I mentioned 56 days; I meant 14 days for preliminary letter, then another 14 for the LBA: which were all ignored without any reply to my claim, plus 14 days from the court and another 14 days extension as requested from the court to file their defence.

 

Do you see my point, I dont real think they need more time to be honest. Im not very keen to accept their request, otherwise can you educate me if their any legal reasons which may act on their favour if I refused to accept their request???.

Right you are I assumed you meant 56 days from issuing the claim...56 days is maximum allowed..that is at your discretion....but you can request judgment anytime after 14 days if they have failed to submit a defence.

 

No it wont be regarded as unreasonable...they have had plenty of time to respond .....even before the claim was issued.

Defendant was required to Acknowledge by 22nd June and get defence in by 6th July.

 

You don't have to agree to the requested extension, but the court may allow it anyway.

Hi @Slick132

 

So even if I play hard on them do u think the court will allow them another 28 days without my consent? Given to that, then I should accept their request as Andy advised above.

 

Waiting for constructive input as well..

Time starts from the 6th July...if no defence submitted you can request judgment with immediate effect....or you can agree and allow them a further 28 days (CPR15.5)...you can then allow them a further 28 days (CPR 15.5) total 56....but hurry up and decide the court don't like being informed a day before the defence is due.

 

Its your choice
