    • Public backs debt enforcement to support vital public services - survey | CIVEA View the full article
    • Hi   Fire Protection isn't just for cladding fire proofing doors etc it also includes Annual Fire Inspections which all add to costs.   Water Charge for the communal boiler fault managed by SSE It would depend how your housing association has setup the contract with SSE. (sounds as if you have a Combined Heat and Power system (CHP)) if this is the case my own Housing Association also has this its the largest CHP in the UK still and it is run and managed by SSE right down to they repair faults at their cost not the tenants its how the contract was setup). As said it would depend on how your HA setup the contract with SSE.   If it is a CHP system and the fault as you have describe these are not cheap to repair/get a replacement parts. (my own HA CHP covers thousands of properties and has three boilers two are constantly used the third is and emergency backup/used if maintenance on others required.)   If all tenants are being charged this £200-£300 have the HA added this as a Service Charge as part of your Rent Statement?   I am a HA Tenant and if I had this as a HA Tenant myself I certainly would be challenging it with the HA as such costs should have been budgeted for in the HA Budget Plan.   Do you have a Tenants Committee/Registered Tenants Organisation (RTO) if so as well as complaint to the HA I would also inform them of this   With your letter Make sure and Title it 'Formal Complaint' this way they have to log it as a complaint which in turn in turn must be added to the HA return to the Regulator.   Only if you consider getting together with other tenants as a Group to complain about this the best advice I will give you is always complain individual as well as a Group. (note: why you ask well individually as stated they have to log all those complaints but as a Group its only one complaint logged the Group one)
    • ukcps just a typo martin.   you don't really have to really worry   just sit tight and await to see if they issue a letter of claim or action.   the landlord will have copies of everything if the renters didn't fwd it on as they should do.
    • I'm not 100% upto speed with the latest PAP but my understanding is i have 30 days to reply to the LoC.   I have asked for an up to date statement as i havent had one in well over 12 months and i was playing with them a bit, so i might wait a week for that to arrive so i have it in black and white before firing off the SB, it will be sent anyway but would like to see all my ducks in a row first if i can before pulling the trigger.
    • Hi,   I defaulted on a Vodafone contract, the default date is 31/07/2015, the amount at that date was approximately £650 now nearly £800.   Lowell Portfolio 1 Ltd now have the debt and it was passed on to Lowell Solicitors who have sent me a "Notice of Claim Issue" on the 31/08/2020, this letter was sent after the claim form 25/08/2020.   I called Lowell, asked for proof of the agreement, they was rude saying a CCJ will be entered against me that day or the next not knowing I filled out the online claim form, so I put the phone down. I was then sent a "Notice of pending County Court Judgment (CCJ)" on the 13/09/2020.   I think I made a mistake with the online form, I did not admit to the claim but I ticked the jurisdiction box, can that be undone?   I added my claim yesterday by checking through recent claims from this forum. I'm now at the point where I'm being asked if I want to counter claim, do I wait? Also I have not sent CPR 31.14 letter yet as I can not find a template on here or know how to send payment of £1.   Please help.

    • I’m in desperate need of help
       
      I bought some clothes online in may through Evans and paid through PayPal
      returned them all seven days later
       
      I waited the 14days for my refund and no refund came
      I put in a dispute through PayPal but I didn’t get any emails to escalate the case - PayPal closed it. 
      evans said they couldn’t refund the money because PayPal have cancelled the refund because of the open dispute
       
      I contacted PayPal
      they said the dispute had been closed but Evans at no point had attempted a refund.
      fast forward to today
       
      I’ve got copies of numerous messages sent to and from twitter messages as it’s the only way I can contact them
      I’ve also contacted their customer service too
      all I get is PayPal have cancelled refund because dispute is still open.
       
      I have proved that the dispute is closed
      I have got an email saying that if Evans sent the refund they would accept it
      but up until the date I got the email they have not once attempted a refund .
       
       I have sent them a letter before court email
      I have even offered to have the full refund as a gift card just to get this sorted !
       
      I’m literally at the end of my tether and don’t know where to turn next !
       
      i suffer with mental health issues and this is affecting my health and I’d saved the money for a year to buy these clothes as I’m on a low income .

Cabot/Restons MBNA Card CCJ and i didnt know i had it. ***Resolved***


Recommended Posts

My credit file states no court orders or adverse.

I cant match the reference number on the letter to the reference number on the ccj and i have no previous letters, cards or other ways of checking.

 

I’m fairly confident its the same debt but cant be 100% certain.

Ive always felt that if and when the time came I would have to settle as although they didn't have proof i was unaware of the case and they got the judgement.

 

I still don’t believe the debt was mine but not sure how i move forward.

They have the judgement so I assume i have to pay?

All a solicitor is, is a guy with a library of books on law, he picks up the book relating to their clients case and reads up on it.   Then charges the earth for doing so, IMHO solicitors are as us

Thanks, the fees changed on 3rd August to £14. I paid over the phone and they confirmed it was the new fee for N245.

no you don't have to pay 

but you certainly need to tell them of you correct address

I've merged the threads as you appear to say its the same amount as the CCJ

though you say the CCJ is not showing?
are all your past addresses showing on your credit file?

 

as with that robbersway and ex Barclaycard debt thread advises you should really be writing to everyone that owns any of your old debts paid or used within the last 7 yrs informing them of your correct and present address.

else more backdoor CCJ's will be gained.

I genuinely don't know who may have a claim as it was with a dmp that was with my ex. I have no paperwork or current credit and my file does not show the ccj or all my old addresses. 
My biggest concern now is they surely will want payment. Should I confirm my address and query the debt then wait for next steps?

so your old addresses are not showing on your credit file?

I have just checked again, there is no adverse credit showing and my address is out of date even though i updated the electoral role when i moved a couple of years back. The only searches are from energy providers and the score is fair. I have no credit and no previous credit showing.

so you need to contact whichever credit file provider you are using asking them to update your file with all these addresses (list them)

then to alert you when its done

you can possibly do this by messenger system on your account.

IMHO you need to write to them informing them of your present and correct address 

head the letter with their ref number.

Ok, will do. Don’t think its related to Abbey. When I confirm the address should i ask for details about the debt or do nothing?

I have.now sent two letters to Cabot and both have been ignored.

 

I have now received another letter which looks pretty standard stating we have now confirmed your address,

you have taken the first step and suggesting i set up-an account and start paying.

Good, so now ignore them too until/unless you get a letter of claim?

Still had no written response but have now received a couple of texts stating that a personal letter is waiting for me and i may find it useful to log on via the link.

 

I’m curious but also reluctant as I feel that any communication could be done by letter in response to mine.

 

Any suggestions?

Right, that didn’t take long.

I have now received a letter from them with a stack of paperwork claiming for 2 accounts.

The main one explains the account which is on ccj

last paid via stepchange in July 2013 and then subsequently The ccj obtained via Restons in 2016 due to my lack of defence.

The original credit agreement dated 2003 is included.


The other account they state has no documentation but they believe i owe it due to payments via stepchange.

The inference is they want to work with me on a suitable payment.

 

The remainder of the documentation shows payments via stepchange stopped in 2013 and various cc statements none with any signatures or showing who made the payment.

 

I’m 100% sure that no payment to stepchange came from my accounts they were all from my ex.

 

I’m  guessing the account with ccj I need to find a suitable payment solution and the other account i send a prove it letter?

forget the pointless prove it letters - just stupid letter tennis.

One is the mbna credit card which Restons obtained the ccj on in 2016. Presumably i have to do something about this to avoid possible bailiffs?
The other is stated as Barclaycard which they advise they have no documentation but believe i owe It as paid via stepchange in July 2013. Is this not statute barred?

cant see a thread on this reston and who's CCJ ...??

if its anything like your old HFC loan, you got cash cowed blind as they charged your post judgemental interest when there was no order too.

 

as for the BC one...no paperwork - no pay ignore them.

Sorry, this thread is a bit confusing

 

effectively i found out a couple of years ago that i had a ccj which was obtained by Restons solicitors on behalf of Cabot in Feb 2016. 

 

A few months ago Cabot contacted me to confirm my address

after a couple of letters back and forth as per advice

 

they have now sent a letter explaining i owe this money and I should contact them.

Additionally they added the details about the Barclaycard but no evidence.

Who said blindly enter into stupid letter tennis??

 

Quite honestly until you get notification that any of your ,CCJ owners are returning to court to enforce a judgement

I'd stop paying everyone on any historic debts

As long as you've written telling them of you correct address

Hi, just to be clear in post 58 you advised writing to them and giving my correct address which i did and they ignored it.

I sent a second letter and that was also ignored until now.

 

 I haven’t had any other communication and any payment made was in 2013 from my ex’s account via Stepchange. 

I haven't offered or made any payments to anyone since then.


Just to be clear are you saying that unless I'm contacted about enforcing a judgement I ignore any further communication? They do state that normal collection processes will commence if they don't hear from me in 21 days.

 

Also i do appreciate your advice and I will be making a donation because the work you do is brilliant.

 

Apologies that my explanations aren’t always clear but it is a bit daunting.

I thought i was back on my feet after a disastrous divorce in 2013 but i got the ccj so have to face up to the fact it may be enforced. Thanks again.

 

Donation made, thanks very much. Hopefully others will donate as this site needs to continue.

no they would have to return to a court and that court would inform you of such request.

What concerns me is that although the ccj was obtained in Feb 2016 it is only because they didn't have my address that further action probably wasn't taken until now.

 

It's evident that I wouldn't have grounds for a set aside so presumably they have a further 2 years to attempt recovery?

 

On the original ccj there was a court fee of £410 and £100 solicitors fee added to the total.

The fact they have now sent me the info and hold me responsible (which in the eyes of the law i am)

why would they not simply apply back to court for enforcement and then add more costs for doing this,

 

or are you saying to wait it out until that time comes

and then negotiate ?
