    • Here is the latest draft defence aligned to each item from the POC. I have incorporated PAP detail into Item 4 of the defence in italics. Do I add the detail of CCA into Defence Item 5? Your comments, advice and suggested amendments are welcome.   1. The Claimant ('C') claims the whole of the outstanding balance due and payable under an agreement referenced “ref number” and opened effective from 27/08/2016. The agreement is regulated by the Consumer Credit Act 1974, was signed by the Defendant ('D') and from which credit was extended to the Defendant.   Defence 1. The Defendant contends that the particulars of the 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.  The Defendant failed to comply with a default notice served pursuant to s87, . CCA and by 05/08/2019  a default was recorded. Defence 2. Paragraph 1 is denied. I cannot recall any dealing with HSBC in the past, I cannot recall the specifics of the alleged agreement.   3.  As at 18/09/2019 the Defendant owed “Bank of SCOTLAND” the sum of 3897281. Defence 3. Paragraph 3 is denied. It is denied that any amounts are due under any agreement.   4. By an agreement in writing the benefit of the debt has been legally assigned to the Claimant effective 18/09/2019 and made regular upon the Claimant serving a Notice of Assignment the Defendant shortly thereafter. Defence 4. Paragraph 5 is denied and I am not aware of service of a Default Notice by the original creditor or Legal Assignment the claimant refers to within its particulars of claim. The Claimant has not complied with paragraph 3 of the PAPDC ( Pre Action Protocol) and Failed to serve a letter of claim pre claim pursuant to PAPDC changes of the 1st October 2017.It is respectfully requested that the court take this into consideration pursuant to 7.1 PAPDC.    5. And the Claimant claims: 1. 397281;  2. Interest pursuant to Section 69 County Court Act (1984) at a rate of 8 % per Annum from 18/09/2019 to 25/08/2020 of 26171 And thereafter at a daily rate of 82 to date of judgment or sooner payment. Date 28/08/2010 Defence 5. On receipt of this claim I requested information pertaining to this claim from Link Financial & Kearns Solicitors by way of a CPR 31:14 request sent via Royal Mail delivery on 28 August 2020. To date, neither Link Financial or Kearns Solicitors are yet to furnish me with the requested information.   7.Therefore the Claimant is put to strict proof to:- a) show and disclose how the Defendant has entered into an agreement; b) show and disclose how the Claimant has reached the amount claimed for; c) show and evidence the nature of breach and service of a Default Notice pursuant to Sec 87 (1) CCA1974. d) show how the Claimant has the legal right, either under statute or equity to issue a claim;   8. As per Civil Procedure Rule 16.5 (4) it is expected that the Claimant prove the allegation that the money is owed.   9. On the alternative, if 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.   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 am not really sure where to post this , hopefully it’s appropriate here    At the end of 2017 my partner was involved in a rtc when a car pulled round a bus and hit my car that my partner was driving.   on the advice of family I instructed a car accident management company to deal with the repairs/make necessary arrangements.  The car was fixed and the accident management company paid us a couple of thousand pounds to pay the garage .  The bill never came from the garage and we were told that it had been settled by the insurance company.    when I sold the car a few months ago I struggled to sell to the garage as it was registered by my insurance as a write off.  I was offered significantly less for it because of this.    today I received a letter from a solicitors instructed by my insurance company to recover the money they paid for the repairs back in 2017.    I guess logically/morally my car was fixed and the money from the accident company is extra- although the car was marked by my insurance  as written off yet fixed!   do I need to pay them the sum they are asking or due to the time elapsed etc do I not.  The letter has made me so worried as threats of court action /costs    Thank you

    • 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 .

I am not sure of the correct place in the forums for this post so if it is in the wrong place please move it to the appropriate thread.

 

Story:

Our disabled daughter and her partner of 20 years having being living together in housing association flats every since they got together.

 

Over time they have moved about 4 times and in every case this has been directly due to their behaviour and drinking.

It was not to bad originally but since they were moved into a block of flats (3rd floor with no lift) my daughter who suffers from hydrosypholis and is weak on her right side has difficulty climbing the stairs.

 

We used to be able to keep them fairly well in check but because we cannot make the stairs ourselves the drinking and behaviour has gotten worse.

 

It got so bad that she was taken to court for pouring beer over the occupier of the ground floor flat and was fined for it.

 

Her partner however got violent during a heavy drinking session and hit her causing server bruising to her face. (not the first time)

He has just been found guilty and has to pay a fine.

 

They are not permitted to have contact as part of the court rulings.

 

When my daughter was taken to court (beer offence) she was hit with a cannot return to her flat as part of the rulings and the judge asked if we could take her in for 2-3 days while other accommodation was found for her.

 

The housing association she was with said they were not prepared to help and forced my daughter out of her flat as they did not want her in any of their properties. (I can understand their point due to their past).

 

We were given a number to call to a person who helps find properties/places for people like my daughter. and we called him and he got om the case.

 

 

Everytime we try to call him for a progress report he always seems to be "on holiday" and when do actually talk to him there always seems to be excuses as to where any sort of decision has been made.

 

Currently waiting for the outcome of a interview she had with a group who deals with people like my daughter and helps them get back on the right path (so to speak). We phoned again today to find out if she has been accepted only to find out that they are waiting for a certain person to come back off holiday (yet again) and then have another interview and a decision will then be made.

 

She really does need to have her own place with proper supervision and help.

 

Our main problem now is that the court said 2-3 days and it's now over 3 months.

In all that time we have kept her away from both drink and her partner and she is coping ok.

 

We do have to be careful of what we say when she is around as we think she is a little paranoid when she hears people talking as she thinks they are always talking about her.

 

Our own life has been disrupted considerably and are getting to the point where we feel we cannot do anything without her being in the background.

 

Is their anything we can do about this excessive time span given we were told 2-3 days and something should be sorted for her.

as soon as you said yes then they said yippee and hid behind the nearest wall and pretended the problem has now gone away. She is no longer homeless so they arent that interested in finding her somewhere to live, especially with ther behavioral problems they think they are doing her and her future neighbours a favour.

basically you have to chuck her out on the street to get anywhere.

Yeah I agree entirely with your post concerning them shouting yippee.

 

My wifes really feeling down about saying yes and the fact they have basically done the dirty on us. She even asked three times if this was just going to be 2-3 days and she was reassured that was what it was going to be.

 

Whats really got my goat is that me and the wife were planning to downsize from our current property this year and has already made some plans and started looking for suitable property. This as fairly well stuffed that in the head.

 

My wife has been onto several housing associations and associations that help people like my daughter and it's just feels like we are being passed from one to another.

 

So. other than actually declaring her homeless what other options are open to us?

“They” haven’t done the dirty on you. Your daughter has.

I have to disagree with you disgruntled

 

When you are asked if we could take her in for 2-3 days whilst arrangements were made for her to go somewhere else and virtually nothing has been done to get her a place in 3 months then I do think that they have done dirty to us.

 

She might have well started the whole problem but it was the court asking for us to take her in and as a direct result the LHA took the opportunity to wash their hands by getting her to give up her old property. Because of this it basically shut the door on her getting into several independent living units.

 

We were just getting over a traumatic 5 years during which several family members died including both my wife's parents. My wife's own health is not good with her own medical conditions worsening. My own mother has had to undergo treatment for cancer twice and there were several other stress related things going on as well. We just didn't want all this on top.

 

We really did not want this extra right now and my wife really wishes she had said we could not have taken her in.

then your daughter needs to tell the council that she is been thrown out next thursday and you actually do that so she turns up at the housing office on the thurs morning and says am now homeless what are you going to do about it? they will call you and you refuse to have her back.

You have to be cruel to be kind

Sadly, I have to agree with you. Sometimes you do have to be cruel to be kind.

 

Going to try a couple of other places which we have found which appear to be the type she needs. Have to see how it goes.
