hi guys,

Had an offer of part settlement from Cobbets on the 1/11/06, promptly sent then the refusal letter, on which i have proof it was delivered and signed by a mr N Hayward.

I have now recieved a letter stating that i have not responded and they look forward to hearing from me in the next 7 days.

The original letter gave me until the 8/11/06 to accept the offer, there now giving me another 7 days to accept. Surely this is just another stalling tactic from the people at cobblers, and if so could i report them to the law society?.

any advice would be welcome

thanks davep

I wouldnt worry too much, there is no grand scheme behind this...just delaying tactics and poor admin.


I got a part offer, wrote back (late)(well i'm not going to bossed around by them!?) declining their offer. A week later I got another offer of £100 more with no reference to the first letter at all???


Just write again, declining and pointing out their error. Usually if you have got past AQ stage you'll get full and final settlement a week or so after they get your decline letter . At least they did with me!:D


What stage are you at? Pre AQ, post, court date set??


good luck

Hiya dave same stage as me Im just waiting for a court date.


Some members are actually phoning up cobbetts and are being told "we are waiting for your cheque to come back down" so it may be worth you ringing them if you feel brave.


I did and was told "its up to the judge now" implying that they were going to see me in court - which I think I was just unlucky and they are trying to be all very scary over the phone!!!


But like I said most people are getting some good news just by phoning up so it worth a try as you will have nothing to lose eh!

thanks for the advice allyxia, but rather put it in writing. Just them a letter accepting their offer again. I enclosed a copy of my last letter, and proof that it had been delivered from the royal mail website.

the balls in their court again now.
