    • OK I got through to Gladstones and I have a direct email to one of the call ladies who confirmed a section 21 notice would be sufficient to prove I was unable to know of correspondence. If I forward a copy of that to them, they will ask the CPM Management for them to agree to a set aside. ( she asked for a bank statement from 19th July 2019 when the court papers were filed but I am unwilling to give them anything that has my bank number on it so we agreed to that.) Her voice sounded a bit shaken after she spoke to the manager (?) for 3 minutes.   I'm going to send the below confirmation letter to them.   Date 15/11/2019. Ref no. XXXX    Dear S   As discussed over the phone earlier today, please find attached Section 21 notice which indicates I did not reside in the address ADDRESS NO.2 from 01 March 2019 and therefore it is clear I had no knowledge of the proceedings related to the Default Judgment case no. XXXXXX of 14t August 2019.   I am writing to you in good faith as the Claim Particulars upon which the above Default Judgment Order was made are incorrect. One of the errors relates to the location of the alleged contravention. The photographic evidence in the letter of 23rd August 2018 issued by your client do not relate to Merlin Road in Farnborough stated in the Claim Particulars.   In the interests of justice and fairness I believe it is reasonable to agree to a set-aside in order to save trouble and inconvenience to everyone including the court.   If your client agrees, please confirm immediately by return, within no longer than 7 calendar days, as well as in writing on the address above.   If you have any comments or if you would like to discuss this further, please do not hesitate to respond to this email by return, to request a call back.   Kind regards,   Miss D XXX        
    • I’m so sorry that this has happened to all of us. It shouldn’t be such a difficult process to get justice. Can you tell me what CAB stands for?    I hope you get it all sorted on your side. I can imagine you are majorly out of pocket because of the travel you have had to do aswell. 
    • I have done spoke to claims handler to be shouted at as I emailed them to requesting information still not got information very rude on phone 
    • Have a read of the following thread....similar application to lift the stay and request Summary Judgment.      
    • XS Direct website says this. I read that to mean it's a single £3,000 excess relating to the whole claim, not per section. So you'd only pay one £3,000. That's just their general statement on their website though, the only way to be sure of your specific situation is to ask them.   Our standard excess is £3000. That means that we pay everything above and beyond this amount, in the event of an accident, where a claim is made on our policy or by our client.   Comprehensive policy Our policy fully covers you for damage to your vehicle and any third party damage and/or injury in the event of accident, over the policy excess of £3000.

I got this form a few days ago and I need to return it by the 22nd (less than a week from when I received it). And I'm really not 100% certain how to fill in the box. It does say 'briefly' but I'm worried that if I don't put in enough information that it may go against me when I fill out the actual PIP forms when my son is 16...

 

My son has a diagnosis of ASD and had been getting high care and low mobility (the welfare officer at cab several years ago advised that I should appeal for higher mobility but I was just happy to get something and didn't want to go through an appeal even though he wasn't the only person to advise that).

 

My son has no concept of the value of items at all and there is no way he could manage his own finances but I really have no idea how to explain that.

 

Any help/advice greatly appreciated :)

You don't, by the looks of things need to give a huge amount of information. So, in your post you've written that he can't manage his finances. Something like that should be enough.

You can also apply(?) to become YS appointee.

I think you said it perfectly succinctly....

I sent off my pip appointee form last week and got home 5 minutes ago to find a letter from dwp saying they are visiting me tomorrow between 11 & 12.30.

Can they really do this?

 

The letter is dated yesterday and they must have known there was no way I could receive it in plenty of time to make arrangements to accommodate them.

 

I have less than 24hrs notice of a home visit.

My son is ASD and I homeschool him as well as his siblings and he doesn't like strangers in our house.

 

I would need time to sort out someone who can watch them.

Also what about any appointments I may already have at that time of day.

 

It is also the school holidays (homeschool children go on holiday too)

and what if we were away this week and didn't get the letter

and weren't in tomorrow either???

 

Sorry, I feel rushed and have no idea what I am doing much less typing

so sorry if this comes accross wrong.

 

I would prefer to meet them in a neutral location if possible

as it would make it easier for me to get someone to watch my son while he is at home.

So phone them up to advise them of these issues to ask for more notice so you can make arrangements for your Son with ASD.

 

Otherwise they will turn up and assume you had no problem or if you refuse to see them tomorrow when they attend then it might go against you. Better to phone them to make them aware of the situation to see what can be done.


We could do with some help from you.

They have said they will cancel tomorrow's visit and try and reschedule in a neutral location but they cannot guarantee this is possible.

 

They also say that my son needs to be there even though the letter did not mention this at all (which I pointed out to them). They say that if he does not attend then dla could be stopped and they need medical evidence from a G.P or other professional to say he is unable to attend if that is the case. I asked if his pediatrician could provide the medical evidence and they did not know as they are only the 'visitation services' and I need to phone DLA and ask them. (A neutral location is still needed if my son attends as he doesn't like strangers in our home).

 

At the moment they have currently left it as tomorrow's visit is cancelled and they will call back to let me know when/if they can schedule an appointment within the local job centre. They said if that is not possible then I must seek the medical evidence.

I would also appreciate any advice at what happens during one of these appointments. The letter says it is "about your application to be appointed to act on behalf of Mr * * "

 

Will they want to ask my son any questions and what kind of questions would they be? He could probably answer a question like a sum but that doesn't mean he understands the value of anything.... :|

Absolutely criminal, still acting with impunity!! Makes my teeth itch..

 

Please Please Please, ensure you document all of this, and when you have time, send your local MP a strongly worded letter regarding them presiding over such a criminal department.

 

The threat of stopping his DLA, is just that, a childish threat to get you to comply with them so they feel as though they have some control over you.

 

But the opposite is true, you need to get the names of everyone you come into contact with so you can hold them personally responsible, and ensure they know this fact from the outset.
