    • Thank you dx, will make alterations as suggested. so my defence is basically asking them to prove how and why they believe I owe them money?   How long do I have to wait for a reply from Erudio/Drydens before I can submit my defence,  is it 14 days from date of posting CPR and CCA requests?
    • If you are sending three separate parcels to 3 separate "customers" then this tends to make you a trader and not a private seller. What makes you think you are a private seller?   I have private ebay account and i am not registered as sole trader. But yes, i sell good at eBay in amount. I plan to register as sole trader in thew future, will it affect my claim process against Parcel2go, if another parcels will be lost, after i register as sole-trader? Anyway, you will only be able to claim for the value of the parcels as long as they were correctly represented. For some reason rather you have deliberately misrepresented the value of one of the parcels and I'm afraid you will only be able to claim for that lower amount.   I have got that. I am always write full value now.  Have you begun the claims process? These are quite small amounts and I thought that there was a minimum amount which was automatically covered with the basic delivery cost. Is that wrong?   I have opened claims at their parcel2go homepage. Waiting a response for first claim for 19 days already.  During, placing an order, you can choose which cover will you buy. They have 20 GBP cover for extra 20-40 cents, and 0 GBP cover for cheaper price. I have placed 0 GBp cover.  Will it affect future claim? They easily will respond- no cover, no refund.   P.S. One more package is found missing.  Mostly they are gone after tracking shows (no update since):   12/02/2020 - 18:34    Entered the Hermes network     12/02/2020 - 18:34    Entered the Hermes network    89 12/02/2020 - 11:48    Collected from the ParcelShop  
    • Yes, it is the owner's responsibility and I've been on at him for years to at least get the trees pruned back before they became a problem - which they certainly are now.   He doesn't live in the house and hasn't for about 3 or 4 years.  He lets it out to his brother who has also told him to do something about the trees.  The branches fell down 2 weeks ago and no attempt to remove them (or repair the fence that got damaged) has happened.  I honestly don't think he realises just how dangerous the trees are.   Something being done about the trees will be a bit late when our house gets destroyed and we get killed!!!   We'll see what our Councillor comes back with and I'll post his response when I get it.  In the meantime, let's hope we don't get any more high winds and that we don't get a dump of snow, the weight of snow could be enough to bring the things down!  
    • So I guess the below is okay?   1. No keeper liability as this is not "relevant land" under the POFA 2012 and the defendant puts it to strict proof that VCA show as to who the driver was at the time.   2. No contract was ever offered by VCS, the land is subject to its own byelaws and in any case the signage is prohibitive so there can be no monies due as a result of either a contractual charge or as a result of a breach of contract.   3. The claimant has not shown locus standi in this matter.   4. It is denied that there is the ability to enter into a contract with the Claimant as the signs which are in place refer to no stopping which it is denied creates a contract for the Defendant to enter into and rather this is a prohibitive notice.   5. A CPR 31.14 request was sent to the Claimant on the 24th February 2020 for the disclosure and the production of a verified and legible copy of proof of assignment from the landlord to create contracts and make claims in their own name. No response to this has been received.

Hello I'm very new to this.

 

I've received a county court summons with regard to a debt I owe to Capital One credit card for £8500 from Lowell Solicitors.

 

The issue date is 22/7/2016. so the service date is 5 days after that.

 

I went through some financial issues years ago and although I scrape by dog walking (earn aprox £7000 per annum incl working tax credit) (I have MS and am on anti depressants so try to do a job that will keep me healthy but will be flexible enough to take into account my fatigue) nowadays

 

I still have some old debts that i don't have the resources to pay.

this is the biggest one.

 

I did write to them in 2014 (the debt was owned then by Cougar Finance)

telling them my financial circumstances and offering to pay a monthly amount which they refused.

 

Since then Ive stuck my head in the sand and hoped they'd go away.

Now its come to a head.

 

I own my house, got rid of my car years ago as I couldn't afford it.

. Im terrified I'm going to loose my house.

I have not used a credit card in years I wish I hadn't been so stupid in 2013.

 

I have some PPI going back to the 1990s on different loans and credit cards thankfully all paid up, that I hope I can claim back which i could also use some advice on.

 

I have kept every bank statement, credit card invoice and financial paperwork.

I'm a bit of a hoarder.

 

Please advise what I can do. Thanking you in advance

I'm sending these letters recorded delivery today.

 

In the CPR31 request I have stated that I'm defending the action.

 

do I now go online and tell the court that I'm defending the action.

 

If so whats my defence,

I did spend the money I just can't afford to repay it all at the moment.

and I have offered to pay monthly but they refused.

 

I am conscious of the timings also I only have until the 10th to notify the court.

You have 33 days in total if you intend to defend the claim in full...19 days to acknowledge service (date starts from the date on the claim form as being day 1)...when you acknowledge service you state your intended plea...if defending in full you then have a further 14 days to submit any defence (33 days in total)

 

So just acknowledge service for now..this can be done online once registered to use the service...password is on the claim form.

Hi

 

It has been over 14 days since I sent the CCA request and the CPR31.14 and I have had no reply. I am conscious that I have to put a defense in by the 23rd. What happens next?

 

Do I ask again or do I ask the court to dismiss the claim, I'm not sure? I've read some of the forums and it looks like it can get quite complicated. So I want to be sure I'm on the right track.

 

Thanks

Simply submit the holding/put them to proof defence...which is widely available in the Legal Success Forum.

The allegations

 

1)The Defendant entered into a consumer credit act 1974 regulated agreement with Capital One under the account reference xxxxxx ('the Agreement')

 

2) The Defendant failed to maintain the required payments and a default notice was served and not complied with.

 

3) The Agreement was later assigned to the Claimant on 25/9/2014 and notice given to the Defendant.

 

4) Despite repeated requests for payment, the sum of £8242 remains due and outstanding.

 

And the Claimant claims

a)The said sum of £8242

b) Interest pursuant to s69 County Courts act 1984 at the rate of 8% per annum from the date of assignment to the date of issue, accruing at a daily rate £1.806, but limited to one year, being £659

c) Costs

Is this defense the correct wording and do I need to write anything else to comply?

 

1. The Defendant contends that the particulars of claim are vague and generic in nature. The Defendant accordingly sets out its case below and relies on CPR r 16.5 (3) in relation to any particular allegation to which a specific response has not been made.

 

2. Paragraph 1 is noted. I have in the past had financial dealings with Capital One . I am unaware of what account the claimant refers to. I am unaware of what alleged debt the claimant refers to having failed to adequately particularise its claim. As of this date the claimant has failed to comply with my section 78 request and therefore remains in default of s78.

 

 

3. Paragraph 2 is denied. I deny having received statutory notices in the form of a Default Notice required under s87(1) of the consumer credit Act. I also deny having received statutory notices in the form of Notice of Sums in Arrears as required by the Consumer Credit Act.

 

 

4 .Paragraph 3 is denied. I can’t ever recall receiving any Notice of Assignment from 25/9/2014 or ever having being approached pre litigation with regards this alleged debt.

 

 

5. It is therefore denied with regards to the Defendant owing any monies to the Claimant, the Claimant has failed to provide any evidence of assignment/balance/breach requested by CPR 31. 14, therefore the Claimant is put to strict proof to:

 

(a) show how the Defendant has entered into an agreement; and

(b) show how the Defendant has reached the amount claimed for; and

© show how the Claimant has the legal right, either under statute or equity to issue a claim;

 

 

6. On receipt of this claim I requested by way of a CPR 31.14 request and a section 78 for copies of any documents referred to within the Claimants particulars to establish what the claim is for. To date they have failed to comply to my section 78 request and remain in default and with regards to my CPR 31.14 request.

 

 

7. As per Civil Procedure Rule 16.5(4), it is expected that the Claimant prove the allegation that the money is owed.

 

 

8. On the alternative, as the Claimant is an assignee of a debt, it is denied that the Claimant has the right to lay a claim due to contraventions of Section 136 of the Law of Property Act and Section 82A of the Consumer Credit Act 1974.

 

 

9. By reasons of the facts and matters set out above, it is denied that the Claimant is entitled to the relief claimed or any relief.

Hi

 

I've received copy of a completed "Directions questionnaire (Small Claims Track) from Lowell this morning. The covering letter is dated the 9/9/2016 but nothing is on MCOL. In the letter it says I should have "received a copy of the same for review and completion. The Court will use the information contained in both our copy and yours to make decisions about how the case should proceed."

The form itself has ticked yes for small claims mediation, yes for small claims track, no for expert witness.

 

I still haven't received any reply regarding my CCA and CPR31.14 and I've not had anything from the court since their acknowledgement of my defence.

 

What do I do next?

 

Thanks

Check with your Court and inform them you have not received your N149 /N180 Directions Questionnaire.

Don't worry about CCA and CPR

- they're unlikely to send you anything or co-operate with you in the slightest.

 

 

The significance of your CCA and CPR requests will become apparent later.

..in fact you've probably already referenced them in your defence.

 

 

You can show the court that you've taken reasonable steps to validate the claim,

but the claimant has just frustrated your requests for them to prove the debt.

Would be interested to see how this goes as I have an almost identical situation at the moment, apart from the amount of the alleged debt, which in my case is £4944.61

 

I too have got as far as receiving the completed "directions questionnaire" from Lowell but also have not received a questionnaire myself.

Yeah I think they have this idea that if they go down the mediation route people will pay up rather than go to court and risk a ccj

 

 

but, the way I see it is they still have to provide the evidence of what it is they are claiming for.

 

 

If others are like me,

all they will have been given so far is one piece of paper claiming a large sum of money

but no indication how this figure was arrived at.

.apart from legal fees of course.

I spoke to the court yesterday and a very nice lady said that Lowell had jumped the gun as they had not responded to my defence yet.

She said when they do the relevant forms will be sent to me.

 

I got the impression that even if the court receives what Lowell sent me they won't accept it until Lowell respond to my defence.

 

she also muttered something about these companies sending these out almost in an automated fashion, going through the motions if that makes any sense.
