    • You were asked for the particulars of claim, which I can’t yet see.    Posting your defence (without the particulars of claim) isn’t that helpful : the aim is to tailor the defence to the PofC, highlighting which areas aren’t in dispute (so the court doesn’t have to waste time on them, and can focus on the key areas), and which areas you can (as a matter of critical importance) show where the claim fails on matters of law.   ideally their PofC would be numbered, and you could go through line by line....   <\example> 1a) It is admitted a loan of £x,000 was granted on <date> 1b) It is denied the loan was made to Person X. The Claimant is mistaken, as in fact, the loan was made to Company Y. 2a) It is admitted in part that payments were made. To clarify, payments ceased on <date>. The claimant’s belief that payments were made after <date> is denied. 2b) Given more than 6 years have elapsed (with no payments nor admission of debt) ... <Staute barred text> (Points 3-7, more “denied”, “accepted”, “accepted in part, with bits denied”, and also “neither accepted nor denied, but claimant is put to strict proof thereof”) it might not be point 7, but you get the gist ..... In the alternate: (again, may not be point 8 but numbered sequentially and logically) 8a) It is admitted a note was signed by Person Z on <date> 8b) This note was not executed as a deed, and no consideration was received in exchange for it, thus no enforceable contract can be formed by it. 8c) Thus the claimant’s action in contract is fatally flawed, and bound to fail in the absence of an enforceable contract. 9) The Claimant's claim to be entitled to payment of £[insert figure from their  POC]  or any other sum, or relief of any kind is denied. <\end example>     The aim is to make it simple enough for a child to follow..... a) it impresses the court, b) it focuses on the key issues at law. Both of these are adding to your credibility and making it easier for the court to see the legal basis for your defence, altjough c) when faced with this the claimant may see sense and withdraw (although, after so long ... I somehow doubt it!)      
    • Thank you I have already started that process the universal credit housing costs won’t even cover half the rent and as you know this process takes a long time.   I am also pretty sure my landlords have a UK mortgage as they used to live in the house we now rent from them if this is the case would they be entitled to the same rights even though they are based over seas now?    
    • Hi, thanks again for your help. I'm a courier; the insurance companies always stuff us.   Thanks again for everyone's help, I'll keep the post updated.
    • This thread is dancing around a bit – and frankly so are you. The question as to whether or not it is worth bringing an action for £40 is completely up to you. You still haven't told us who the business is and I suppose that you are trying to protect them.  Very noble. Bravo You have absolutely the right to recover your £40. If you are dealing with a business then it is the legal responsibility of the business to get the delivery to you. Even if the item has been delivered to the wrong address, it is still up to the business to take responsibility. As I understand it, you have been trying to contact the business and there has been no response. I must say that simply this element of your transaction – the lack of engagement by the seller – the would make me want to hold him to account. If the seller started to engage in a reasonable dialogue with me and also appeared to take some responsibility such as checking up on the courier himself, I might feel less disposed to bring an action for £40 – particularly in the light of the current crisis when I'm quite sure that things will be more difficult and take much longer time. We all know that transactions go wrong and for me the test of a good business is their response when they do go wrong. Simply to fail to contact the customer in response to enquiries or to show any further interest I think is a real abrogation of responsibility. It is not at all consumer-facing and it is businesses with this kind of mentality that need to be brought to book.   However you have a fundamental problem – and it is that you don't know where your proposed defendant is. You don't know his residential address. You don't know his business address. You don't know where his assets are. Without this, your chances of enforcing a judgement are zero – and in fact despite the fact that you have the right to bring the claim, a claim must be directed to a proper postal address and you don't have the information so it will be impossible to issue the claim. You can certainly send your letter of claim by email – but what's the point? You won't be able to follow it up with the claim. If the seller has managed to transact business with you without disclosing any clue as to his whereabouts – and if he also fails to respond to any of your messages, then you are being mocked. You say that you are irritated. Doesn't this irritate your sense of principle even more? This is another reason why you should stop protecting the seller and let us know who it is. You may well find that somebody else will visit this thread and provide some useful information which will help to move you forward. You should also give us the name of the different company which appears on your credit card statement to have been the recipient of the money. This could be another way of tracking him down.
    • So claim Universal Credit, which can include private housing rent up the Local Housing Allowance limit.   Foreign landlords may have mortgage loans through offshore Banking arrangements, so not the same as UK residential mortgage.

This one is mysterious: friend of mine has a vehicle service and MOT garage business and has received a letter through the post from the Police entitled INTENTION TO PROSECUTE.

 

 

The NIP (if that’s what it is) states the offence as driving a mechanically propelled vehicle without due care and attention on the public road and it lists a vehicle that was brought into the garage but they did not work on.

 

 

It is addressed to the garage business and not to an individual; it says to identify the driver or any other information

 

 

In short the car was brought in and there’s a note in the garage log that says ‘vehicle details and EML’ which means Engine Management Light.

 

 

No invoice was raised for the vehicle and no work was carried out, it’s only a small garage and neither of the 2 mechanics drove the vehicle.

 

 

One of them remembers the person bringing it in, the mechanic had a quick look and said it needed further diagnostics and gave the customer a card and the hourly rate, the Customer then left and never came back.

 

 

How do they respond to this?

 

 

They can’t identify the driver as no one drove the vehicle, also a notice of this kind cannot be via a camera so surely the driver was pulled over at the time?

 

 

There’s no photo evidence in the letter.

 

 

I reckon the car driver was pulled over by Plod, then went to the nearest garage to log a visit so he could say it wasn’t him driving.

Just tell the old bill exactly what you've described above.


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!
