    • Apologies for hijacking the topic. Had a similar claim with moneyclaim submitted against Hermes. The usual story. Hermes lost the parcel. I was unable to get in touch with packlink. Sent multiple emails. Every time I got the same automated response: The parcel was insured for the full amount.   Now Hermes is denying their responsibility.    Also: Should I proceed with the claim?

    • I dont see anything significant for the UK in the Japan deal at all Some extra access for financial institutions ... maybe ... in a few years   but other than that there seems to be little other than some gains for Japan in ability to use the proposed 'tax haven freeport sites (they dont have to be at ports) ' to 'virtually' ship parts through the UK into europe as cars - probably supported by tax payer funded allowances while paying naff all in UK taxes.

    • I came across this discussion recently and just wanted to give my experience of A Shade Greener that may help others regarding their boiler finance agreement.
       
      We had a 10yr  finance contract for a boiler fitted July 2015.
       
      After a summer of discontent with ASG I discovered that if you have paid HALF the agreement or more you can legally return the boiler to them at no cost to yourself. I've just returned mine the feeling is liberating.
       
      It all started mid summer during lockdown when they refused to service our boiler because we didn't have a loft ladder or flooring installed despite the fact AS installed the boiler. and had previosuly serviced it without issue for 4yrs. After consulting with an independent installer I was informed that if this was the case then ASG had breached building regulations,  this was duly reported to Gas Safe to investigate and even then ASG refused to accept blame and repeatedly said it was my problem. Anyway Gas Safe found them in breach of building regs and a compromise was reached.
       
      A month later and ASG attended to service our boiler but in the process left the boiler unusuable as it kept losing pressure not to mention they had damaged the filling loop in the process which they said was my responsibilty not theres and would charge me to repair, so generous of them! Soon after reporting the fault I got a letter stating it was time we arranged a powerflush on our heating system which they make you do after 5 years even though there's nothing in the contract that states this. Coincidence?
       
      After a few heated exchanges with ASG (pardon the pun) I decided to pull the plug and cancel our agreement.
       
      The boiler was removed and replaced by a reputable installer,  and the old boiler was returned to ASG thus ending our contract with them. What's mad is I saved in excess of £1000 in the long run and got a new boiler with a brand new 12yr warranty. 
       
      You only have to look at TrustPilot to get an idea of what this company is like.

    • Dazza a few months ago I discovered a good friend of mine who had ten debts with cards and catalogues which he was slavishly paying off at detriment to his own family quality of life, and I mean hardship, not just absence of second holidays or flat screen TV's.
       
      I wrote to all his creditors asking for supporting documents and not one could provide any material that would allow them to enforce the debt.
       
      As a result he stopped paying and they have been unable to do anything, one even admitted it was unenforceable.
       
      If circumstances have got to the point where you are finding it unmanageable you must ask yourself why you feel the need to pay.  I guarantee you that these companies have built bad debt into their business model and no one over there is losing any sleep over your debt to them!  They will see you as a victim and cash cow and they will be reluctant to discuss final offers, only ways to keep you paying with threats of court action or seizing your assets if you have any.
       
      They are not your friends and you owe them no loyalty or moral duty, that must remain only for yourself and your family.
       
      If it was me I would send them all a CCA request.   I would bet that not one will provide the correct response and you can quite legally stop paying them until such time as they do provide a response.   Even when they do you should check back here as they mostly send dodgy photo copies or generic rubbish that has no connection with your supposed debt.
       
      The money you are paying them should, as far as you are able, be put to a savings account for yourself and as a means of paying of one of these fleecers should they ever manage to get to to the point of a successful court judgement.  After six years they will not be able to start court action and that money will then become yours.
       
      They will of course pursue you for the funds and pass your file around various departments of their business and out to third parties.
       
      Your response is that you should treat it as a hobby.  I have numerous files of correspondence each faithfully organised showing the various letters from different DCA;s , solicitors etc with a mix of threats, inducements and offers.   It is like my stamp collection and I show it to anyone who is interested!

Hi

 

I have received the court paperwork for an old Capital One debt (claimant is Cabot)

 

The document says it was taken out on or around the 29/7/2014 and I've never had any documentation from Cabot to say they own the debt.

 

In the past I have been given the wrong advice and have sent off a cpr18 letter and cca request.

 

Can somebody please advise me of the correct way to deal with this.

 

I have acknowledged service that I intend to defend all the claim, total amount with fees is £401.82

 

Thank you in advance for any advice given

Welcome to the forum - read and post up the info in the link jon8214 has posted as it will help people on here to help you.

 

It's good that you have acknowledged the claim, the most important thing to remember at this stage is that you MUST submit a defence on time to the court via MCOL (which I presume you used MCOL to acknowledged the claim)

I have not received any paperwork from Cabot to say they own this debt so was suprised to receive the court paperwork with their name on it.

 

Any further advice would be gratefully received.

Did you keep up with the payment plan?

 

Are you still making payments in accordance with the payment plan now?

 

Do you still have the default notice? If yes, is the amount stated on the DN as being in arrears correct, and does the DN give you the statutory 14 days to remedy the breach?

 

In your CPR r.31.14 request, you want disclosure of a copy of the agreement and a copy of the notice of assignment, both of these documents are mentioned in the Claim form.

 

What do you intend to defend with?

 

Loads of questions I know, but your answers will help a lot to help you prepare your defence.

See post #7 Do this FIRST, before answering ANYTHING else.

Faulty DN's can be rectified....

Where a creditor terminates the agreement by way of issuing a default notice under the statutory provisions of the CCA 1974, and that default notice does not comply with the statutory requirements, the creditor cannot then rely upon contractual termination under the agreement.

 

The Court of Appeal in Brandon v American Express held this rule of law in favour of Brandon.

 

An invalid default notice cannot be rectified by a creditor after he has terminated the agreement on that invalid default notice.

 

I am aware that in Harrison v Black Horse, the Mercantile court said that a bad notice can be made good, but it did not set out the circumstances where a bad notice can be made good.

 

It is clear from the Brandon v American Express case that a bad default notice cannot be made good if the creditor has terminated the agreement on it.

 

After realising he had terminated the agreement on an invalid default notice, the creditor in Brandon attempted to rely upon his right to terminate under the contractual terms and conditions of the agreement, the Court of Appeal said a creditor either terminates under the statutory route or under the contractual clauses route of the agreement, he cannot use both routes.

 

While a credit agreement is regulated under the CCA 1974, it is still a contract under English law and is subject to the rules and principles of English contract law.

 

In macker’s case, if his creditor has terminated the agreement on an invalid default notice, he cannot unilaterally reinstate the agreement to make it ‘live’ again so that he can serve a valid default notice on macker, the agreement is a bilateral one and it would require macker’s express consent to resurrect it from its legally dead grave.

 

In the Brandon case, the Court of Appeal qualified the importance of service of a valid default notice, and the adverse consequences for a creditor who fails to comply with the statutory requirements of default notices in relation to terminating the agreement by the statutory route.

 

The issue of the default notice in macker’s case posted here is just one issue, but it is not a minor or inconsequential issue, quite the contrary.

 

Until macker updates his case with the details of the payment plan and the default notice, and any other relevant information, it is not yet possible to say whether he has any defence against the claim.

I know time is running out but i only have access to a computer and printer when i'm at work.

 

Thanks again for all the advice you've given me, will post again when i've done it.

even if YOU do find anything

you keep those to YOURSELF.

 

the claim can only be decided upon by the/any documents produced by the CLAIMANT.

 

either in returns to the CPR/CCA requests

or

in their witness statement at the disclosure stage IF IF IF the claim ever gets that far....

 

who are the sols restons?

Were you still making the payments in accordance with the payment plan at the date they issued these proceedings? If you can't remember, check your bank account statements.

 

 

This is important because the payment plan supersedes the original terms and conditions of the amount you have to pay monthly, and if you are or were still making the agreed reduced monthly payments, then the creditor is estopped from bringing his claim to enforce the agreement for the full amount.

The only thing that you have to file to the court is your Defence, but you do actually have to have a Defence.

 

If you have a Defence, then post it up here for comments, suggestions, advice, and if it is a valid one, then send it to the court only by Royal Mail Special Delivery.

 

What is your Defence so far?

 

It's unfortunate that you stopped making payments on the payment plan.
