    • Hi all,   Lowell sols have responded to my cpr with exactly the same documentation as Lowells sent through. So still no valid agreement!   Defence due Friday by 4pm.   I have updated my defence below based on your points Dx. Many thanks.   Would you and Andy mind having a scan over before i send off on Friday please?   Cheers in advance as always     Particulars of Claim    1.The defendant entered in to a consumer credit act 1974 regulated agreement with Vanquis under account reference xxxxxxxx ('the agreement')   2.The defendant failed to maintain the required payments and arrears began to accrue   3.The agreement was later assigned to the claimant on 27/09/19 and notice given to the defendant   4. Despite repeated requests for payment the sum of xxx remains due and outstanding.   And the claimant claims a. The said sum of xxxx 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 of £0.610 but limited to one year being £222.65 c. Costs   Defence:   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 allegation to which a specific response has not been made.   1. Paragraph 1 is noted. I have in the past had financial dealings with Vanquis. I do not recall the precise details of the agreement and have sought to seek clarity from the claimant.   2. Paragraph 3 is noted. I do not recall ever receiving this notice pursuant to sec136 of the Law of Property Act 1925.   3. On receipt of a notice of acting letter sent from Lowell Solicitors, the Defendant sent for on the 12/11/2020 via royal mail a section 78 request to Lowell Portfolio Ltd pursuant to the Consumer Credit Act 1974. This for a copy of the agreement. The claimant has partially complied and disclosed various documents however they were unable to comply with disclosing a valid full copy of the executed agreement on which their claim relies upon.   5. The claimant disclosed various screenshots taken from  the originators software of the application and also confirms on their covering letter the relative legislation The Electronic Communications Act 2000 with regards to wet signatures and the requirement of a tick box to validate the application.The screenshots  are devoid of any tick box or any authenticity of IP address conformation check.Therefore the claimant remains in default of my section 78 request and pursuant to section 78  6 a of the CCA1974  the claimant is not entitled, while the default continues, to enforce the agreement.   6. On receipt of this claim form I sent a CPR 31.14 request on the 11/2/21 via royal mail to Lowell Solicitors and again the claimant only disclosed exactly the same documentation. The claimant therefore after a second attempt by the defendant remains in default of said request.   7. It is therefore not accepted with regards to the Defendant owing any monies to the Claimant and 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 c) Show or evidence service of a Default Notice /Notice of Sums in Arrears, d) show how the Claimant has the legal right, either under statute or equity to issue a claim;   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.
    • the mortgage it protects is still active is it not?  
    • Ok thanks, i'll have a read and finger crossed.   I wonder if there is a possible angle with Aviva if not as it transferred to them in 2011 I think it was 😕 
    • you contact the operator of the actual ATM machine with the time and date go look at it and there will be a number on there to ring they will know the money was not dispensed the next time it is refilled it also keeps a log and the camera footage outside and inside the machine. though yes its not quick took me 3mts once to get £100 back out of Link.
    • me again!   Why do most companies insist   on you giving them a phone number!   I am asking on behalf a my  ex father -in-law, he applied for    insurance I believe but because he has no phone of any sort they told him they can not continue his application! Why? is it law to have a phone???? I myself only have a  bog standard mobile, has no camera, no internet etc, I  do not give my number out to anyone yet get SWAMPED with unwanted calls and texts even though I registered it with TPS!   I find it really unfair you are expected to have a phone, not everyone wants one or afford one   Sandy xx

    • 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 evening.

 

I look after my mum and she had a medical this past week and my question is for if she fails her medical and am caring for even though she has PIP and she is on ESA I think it is also am I still Entitled to be her carer and still be my job and still get my Carer Allowance if they had sense when looking at her issues and problems that she will never be fit for work and she won't get any better simple as that.

 

if anyone can respond to my question would be great thanks.

You seem to have made some assumptions regarding the outcomes of not only the assessment but also what is considered the right or wrong side of health issues. We are not here to bang the drum for your position or assertions of your mothers fitness to work, if they decide she is fit to become a scaffolder then we can help with an appeal against that decision but everything must be within the parameters of the system as it is so come back when you have the result of the medical if you still have questions.

By the way, being assessed as fit or unfit to perform certain tasks is not a fail or pass in being human. The way you word it makes you seem more interested in getting paid as a carer rather than the person who needs care

will come back when got results.

 

only way I was asking was to see if failing a medical and not been paid to care for my mother after has really affects her these medical first one since I got paid to care so wasn't sure what happens always put more care into my mother than care about the money but it will affect my mother issues more so try not to inform her rather get people opinions on these forums but like a said will inform here if and when the results come back.

Assuming the medical assessment is for ESA then there will be no impact on your carers but the PIP medical would potentially have an impact on your carers allowance.

 

If she passes the medical assessments then your carers allowance will remain in payment.

If she fails the medical then your will be entitled to carers allowance for a run on period of 8 weeks, that will also give her a chance to request a mandatory reconsideration if she does not agree with the decision.

If the PIP is not reinstated or the mandatory reconsideration is not changed in her favour then you would lose your carers until such time that the PIP daily living is reinstated.

hey

 

My Mother got word past 24hours that she got 0points for her medical so she has to come off ESA even though her illness is still the same stuff but it has got worst how can you class someone as not fit enough to work but the next year medical where nothing has got better but worst but fail and get 0 points. I am not happy at all I see every single day how much pain she goes through and they so called qualified medical people think she is fit as a fiddle would like to see the land they live in one day if they get what she has maybe they will realise that it isn't a illness to laugh or joke about.

 

so has to claim JSA what a joke it really is she has been told by work advisor she isn't fit enough to work many of times and even some advisors who didn't really care told her few times when you go for jobs lie about your illness and medical etc yeh she told me that she was told to lie on a letter about her illness to employers.

 

she has to wait and get a reconsideration form.

 

if anyone can pass on anymore help would be helpful and sorry for outburst but just not happy one single bit.

You need to start the lethargic appeals process, also inform your local MP and have them explain the continued persecution of the sick and disabled.

Who ever heard of someone getting a job at the Jobcentre? The unemployed are sent there as penance for their sins, not to help them find work!

The MR (Mandatory Reconsideration) should have been sent to you with their standard zero points award letter.

 

As for your local MP, you can email them using this link -----> https://www.writetothem.com/ just enter your postcode, and it''l drag up your local MP and your local councillors.

 

I can't tell you what to write, as that's individual, just demand to know why this government is intent on persecuting the sick and disabled.

In future if they ring, tell them to put whatever they wish to convey, in writing so you have the evidence in black and white.

 

Don't entertain them on the phone, get that email to your MP then hit them with another one when they send the results, you can also send the DWP a SAR, which is free, then you will have all the information they have, and a little more insight into how they fabricate their reports and assessments, before you can expose their lies and inform your MP.

A update on this

 

got the medical report through today and what a joke a have never heard so much crap in my life I honestly can't remember sitting with this medical person who was doing my mum assessment because a don't see anything what so ever on it that I remember my mum is baffled as to who this woman was actually interviewing cause it wasn't my mum.

 

according to the sheet basically she got 0 points and one was like because she could touch her head I have to laugh at this seriously what life are these people living in.
