Thank you victoria.  I have read and re-read but am getting very anxious now.

 

I have a 101 questions going in my head and wondered if I list some of them below, anybody else could answer them?

 

1.  Will the DJ ask me questions directly?

2.  Do I need to take the whole of the Claimant's bundle with me?

3.  Will a judgement be made against/for me there and then on Monday?

4.  In my defence, do I keep emphasising the Claimant's non-compliance with CPR's?

5.  If I have to, do I, in layman's terms, explain that I had a reduced payment/no interest arrangement with the OC and then suddenly 3 other Debt Collectors pitch up demanding full payment?

6.  This debt is not showing on my Credit Report, should that be a concern?

7.  Do I need to declare my Income & Expenditure, ie, my husband's Pension Credits and other benefits, our only  income?

8.  Should I have received an acknowledgement from the Court that they have received my e-mailed Witness Statement?

 

Thank you!

1.  Will the DJ ask me questions directly? yes

2.  Do I need to take the whole of the Claimant's bundle with me? yes

3.  Will a judgement be made against/for me there and then on Monday? possibly

4.  In my defence, do I keep emphasising the Claimant's non-compliance with CPR's? if they have not compiled fully yes

5.  If I have to, do I, in layman's terms, explain that I had a reduced payment/no interest arrangement with the OC and then suddenly 3 other Debt Collectors pitch up demanding full payment? the debt was sold.

6.  This debt is not showing on my Credit Report, should that be a concern? no

7.  Do I need to declare my Income & Expenditure, ie, my husband's Pension Credits and other benefits, our only  income? you could be they cant be part of any decision.

8.  Should I have received an acknowledgement from the Court that they have received my e-mailed Witness Statement? no

 

Thank you!

Hi again AA99

 

dx has answered your substantive questions.

 

Also have a look at www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZZyb4HYC5A8 for an idea of procedure.

 

My advice is to keep it simple. it is for them to prove, not you to disprove. Your points:

1. You have to choose whether to swear on the bible - decide in advance...

3 and 4. Do stress CPR, they are the system's own procedural rules; however, I was asked if I wanted an adjournment because of their flagrant breaches - I chose not to.

2 and 8. Take copies of everything - assume nothing.

5. Lack of proof of title or ownership was crucial in my case and passing the debt around makes ownership questionable. It is for them to prove ownership.

 

Best wishes

Oh dear was the Judge in a rush and not interested in the CCA1974 ?  If you could expand on the reasons AA so others can benefit from your experience.

 

Chin up

Thanks Andy.  No, no rush, we had a full hour.  She kept harping on about the Notice of Assignment and that all that seemed to matter.  I kept referring back to my WS which she didn't have a copy of (!) so obviously didn't spend her 15 minutes reading both statements.  I kept referring to your Sec 87 Need for Default Notice but twice she said in all probability it was issued!

 

I felt like saying in all probability I'd sent a cheque for the balance then!!!!

 

She did agree with the bombardment of DC's collection letters being confusing.  Commented on Arrow's letter stating they were not the creditor.  I kept using the words Civil Procedures.  I told her the Claimant's rep had approached me twice in the waiting room trying to do a deal and he quickly shouted that was off the record!

So did they get their claimed amount ?   Costs ?

Yes, full amount, but she knocked off the £105 court fee ?!?!!?! And agreed to Application Fee of £255, Fixed Costs on Judgement £175 and Pursuant to CPR 45.4 Attendance Fee £135.  Total £565

 

28 days to pay all

 

I was given forms N245 and EX160 but they cost £50 to submit to the court!

By the way, the C's rep held up his Iphone and said he had a screenshot from OC not showing the DN, but a listed record that it had been sent and she seemed very happy with that!

The more I think about it, the more I think it was like a circus and I wish I'd had a witness!

Do you not qualify for exemption of court fees ?  You really must submit the N245 to get this converted to monthly payment unless you can afford to clear the debt within 28 days otherwise they may take a step further and try to execute the judgment.

Yes, we should qualify for reduced court fees so will send that forthwith.

 

As for the rest of the debt, no, we cannot afford absolutely anything.  We are literally hand to mouth on benefits only.  After today's proceedings, I'm seriously considering a prison sentence or community work.  We have no money and no assets :(

 

Will the debt collector still consider a repayment scheme? Or is that it now?

 

When the rep approached me in the waiting room, he suggested a Tomlin order, is that still feasible?

 

What will happen if my income minus expenditure equals 0 ????  What would happen then?

 

Can I complain in any way about this DJ's representation of the law?

 

I really don't know which way to turn right now.

When the rep approached me in the waiting room, he suggested a Tomlin order, is that still feasible? No you can only agree a tomlin order pre hearing

 

What will happen if my income minus expenditure equals 0 ????  What would happen then? You pay a £1 a month

 

Can I complain in any way about this DJ's representation of the law? You could but it would be pointless unfortunately...wrong day wrong judge 

 

I really don't know which way to turn right now. Get the N245 submitted and complete the EX160

    • This is a bit of a lengthy one but I’ll summerise best as possible.
       
      THIS IS HOW THE PHONECALL WENT 
       
      I was contacted by future comms by phone, they stated that they could beat any phone contract I have , (I am a limited company but just myself that needs a business phone and I am the only worker) 
      I told future comms my deal, £110 per month with a phone and a virtual landline, they confirmed that they could beat that, £90 per month with a phone , virtual landline  they also confirmed they would pay Vodafone (previous provider) the termination fee. As I am in business, naturally I was open to making a deal. So we proceeded. 
      Future comms then revealed that the contract would be with PLAN.COM and the airtime would be provided by 02, I instantly told them that this would break the deal as I have poor 02 signal in the house where I live as my partner is on 02 and constantly complaining about bad signal
      the salesman assured me he would send a signal booster box out with the phone so I would have perfect signal.
      so far so good.....
      i then explained this is the only mobile phone I use for business and pleasure, so therefore I didn’t want any disconnection time in the slightest between the switchover from Vodafone to 02
      the salesman then confirmed that the existing phone would only be disconnected once the new phone was switched on.
      so far so good....

    • I was talked into signing up with Future Comms (future-comms.co.uk) who cold-called me to change my mobile contract to them, via 02, rather than EE. I have a small business (only me!) and it's a business contract. True, the 4G network is better for my area. This company seemed to be a marketing set-up for various telecoms companies, so I assumed anything I signed would be with 02 and didn't think it might be a problem.
       
      They sent an email whilst I was on the phone to set up the direct debit mandate with my bank which I signed electronically. That was the first, of many, problems I found. Apparently THAT was my contract, binding me to 3 years and no 'cooling off' period, because I was a 'business' (meaning any consumer rights did not apply). When I subsequently asked in writing for a copy of my contract, that is what they sent - when I argued it was a DD mandate they insisted it was my contract!
       
      2 days later they asked for my phone details to get it unlocked which I sent. 10 days later, EE closed my account, so I changed the SIM card to 02 that had come a few days before. No network! They had done nothing about unlocking it. Fortunately I was lucky with EE who managed to give me the right codes, rather than the usual 10 days to go through Samsung.
       
      By this time I was suspicious of their set-up and wanted to cancel. As I said earlier, I found myself trapped into a 3 year contract with no 14 day cooling off period (they don't offer that). Promises to deal with my complaints never happened, promised return calls neither....and on and on.
       
      Ofcom's rules apply to consumers and small businesses (under 10 employees), yet this shower don't acknowledge that. They just repeat and repeat that I am a business so it doesn't apply. To cancel the contract I have to pay the full 3 year's fees!!
       
      I would like to know if others have had similar experiences? Or does anyone know how I can maybe declare the 'contract' unenforceable? I have never before been locked into something without a clear written contract, with t&c's! And, yes, I have asked, and yes, I have been ignored.
