    • I'm afraid lapse of time has got nothing to do with it in this case. At the very minimum, though there is is six years within which to recover a debt – and when the money is paid by way of a mistake, it is six years from the date that the mistake was discovered or could reasonably have been discovered. I understand that your vehicle was damaged in an accident and the repair bill was paid by the insurer. Somehow or other, you were also paid about £2000 ostensibly to pay the garage for the repairs. As the car was already repaired, you didn't pay the money over or query it – but you used the money. I'm afraid that if that is a correct summary of what has happened then I would say that you are obliged to repay the money. If my understanding is correct – then you had probably better contact the solicitors and start dealing with them because I'm sure that they will have no hesitation issuing a claim against you and you will then be liable for the money, plus interest at 8% – plus a measure of costs.  
    • 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 .

Halifax/bank of Scotland name removal from joint account

Hello all,

 

My daughter has a joint account with her ex that she wishes to have her name removed from but the Bank/Halifax are making it difficult.

 

Her ex left earlier this year and moved back to Scotland and left her with debts and a load of other problems which she has slowly managed to get sorted.

 

She had to give up her courier job to look after the two children(6 and 4 yrs) and so has had to claim IS.

However, due to this joint account the IS people are making it difficult to get the benefit and this has been ongoing since March.

After many calls to the IS they said she would have to make a new claim which she has now done so has to get around the Joint account problem.

 

Noe the bank says there are only two ways she can get her name off the account and these are,

1] she has to go to Scotland and sign a joint application paper to have her name removed as both parties have to go to the bank and sign the same time. She really really does not want to do that,

2] The other way is to actually get him to close the account and has he is out to cause as many problems for her as he can the chances here are probably a big fat zero.

 

So, is there anyway that she can get this account closed/ name removed other than what the bank has said.

She really wants it closed as to protect herself from any debts he may run up.

 

The other question is now she's made this new IS claim will they take it from the date of the claim or will they back date it to the start of the original claim.

 

Any help/advice is appreciated

I would assume the account is in debit ?

 

For that reason you will struggle as joint account is joint and several for any outstanding debts.

STOP using the account and bank, open up a different bank account with the post office or some other and have all of your income paid into the new account.

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!

Andy,

The account is in credit and has always been since it was originally setup. She has not used this account since they split up.

 

Bazooka Boo

She has done that so that any money she gets paid by IS (when they finally get to giving her some) does not go into the other account.

Her child benefit and CTcredit is being paid into the new account as well.

 

Just wondering if theres some kind of letter that can be sent to the bank so that she can get her name off the joint account. Or, that they have split up

and she is no longer using that account so would like her name removed from it and that she will not be responsible for any debts that may occur on

the joint account from the date of the breakup.

 

Really just want someway of getting her name off the account without her having to travel 300 miles to Scotland just to sign a paper.....

 

Would it be worth a trip to the local citizens advice centre?

If you would like to remove a party on your bank account, call into your local branch with identification. View acceptable forms of identification. A request to remove a party from your bank account will only be accepted where the account is in credit.
