Serving Additional Particulars of Claim


If during step 5 of issuing the claim you state that you will serve additional Particulars of Claim, you must send the additional particulars to the defendant(s) within 14 days of your claim being issued. You should also send a covering letter to the defendant clearly advising that these are the extra particulars referred to in your claim form and quote the claim number. You must file an ‘N215 Certificate of Service’ with the court within 14 days of the claim being issued. The certificate of service confirms to the court that you have sent the documents to the defendant. The certificate can be filed by post or preferably by email to ccbc@hmcts.gsi.gov.uk . Please include the claim number in the subject line of the email. A blank N215 can be downloaded from www.justice.gov.uk/forms. The second page of the N215 explains how to calculate the ‘date of service’. Please note if the date of service is different to that of the claim form, then you should consider the later date to be the date of service for the claim. For further information please see Civil Procedure Rule 7E.6 at: http://www.justice.gov.uk/courts/procedure-rules/civil/rules/pd_part07e


Please note the court does not require copies of the additional documentation you wish to serve upon the defendant at this time.

They're crazy. It just shows what a load of stupid disorganised people they are. If they can't even get their paperwork right it's no wonder they can't get your window installation right.

When you get the defence, please post it here – in multipage single file PDF format, of course

Jean Gillespie ordered her Everest conservatory back in December 2008 at a cost of nearly £33,000. Yet, almost as soon as it was installed, the roof started leaking. According to Jean, Everest has been out numerous times to fix it but unfortunately the roof still leaks.

Chartered Surveyor Barry Cross told Watchdog "The roof and the walls are moving because these bars have not been tightened up properly. Secondly where it is leaking, strip out all the trim, if necessary take the glass off, find where it's leaking put that right and put the glass back and put everything back to normal". Unfortunately, Jean has been left to deal with the mess.




21% of their customers on trust pilot are either unhappy or very unhappy




Before Christmas my wife and I ordered double-glazed windows and bifold doors from Everest. This followed a previous order of windows for half of the house fitted last July.

When the new order came in early March, it became clear that the windows did not match the ones supplied nine months ago and the bifold doors did not fit.

I have made countless calls, written a letter of complaint followed up with an email, had three separate visits from installation managers who have all promised to take action and get back to me with their proposals, and had a further installation visit so that the back door is usable.

But I still cannot get any response from the company about what it is actually going to do to rectify the remaining problems. TR, Woodford Green



Loads more stories. By then you have a look around the Internet.

I expect that there are probably websites where people exchange views about DIY work or improvements that they have had carry on their homes. Give us a few quotes and some links to them.

Yeah, I referenced TP earlier in the thread and been monitoring for a while now, long before I found you guys. It's at 21% because they quickly post magical 5* reviews on receiving a truthful 1* review.


If their manufacturing, installation and customer services team showed as much efficiency they wouldn't be in the mess they are in. Unfortunately most of the mess is very well hidden from your poor consumer and why to the very start of this thread, do you really have any consumer rights.


That said, if you read those 1* reviews without knowing any different, you wouldn't believe it until you experience it. So yes, lesson learnt my side, any TP reviews with negative scores above 10% do major research, over 20% avoid completely.


Trading standards should be dealing with this, not you guys, although I'm truly thankful for it. To this day I still can't understand how they are allowed to continue. GGF are completely useless as well, they say impartial advice can be given yet they refused to answer my queries unless I funded a £1000 + VAT site visit.


Oh, their member would have to agree to that first also, so much for impartial, yeah I know they are being paid by the member but still!


I'll post as things progress, it seems the legal team are indeed efficient when it comes to dealing with issues!

    • This is a bit of a lengthy one but I’ll summerise best as possible.
      I was contacted by future comms by phone, they stated that they could beat any phone contract I have , (I am a limited company but just myself that needs a business phone and I am the only worker) 
      I told future comms my deal, £110 per month with a phone and a virtual landline, they confirmed that they could beat that, £90 per month with a phone , virtual landline  they also confirmed they would pay Vodafone (previous provider) the termination fee. As I am in business, naturally I was open to making a deal. So we proceeded. 
      Future comms then revealed that the contract would be with PLAN.COM and the airtime would be provided by 02, I instantly told them that this would break the deal as I have poor 02 signal in the house where I live as my partner is on 02 and constantly complaining about bad signal
      the salesman assured me he would send a signal booster box out with the phone so I would have perfect signal.
      so far so good.....
      i then explained this is the only mobile phone I use for business and pleasure, so therefore I didn’t want any disconnection time in the slightest between the switchover from Vodafone to 02
      the salesman then confirmed that the existing phone would only be disconnected once the new phone was switched on.
      so far so good....

    • I was talked into signing up with Future Comms (future-comms.co.uk) who cold-called me to change my mobile contract to them, via 02, rather than EE. I have a small business (only me!) and it's a business contract. True, the 4G network is better for my area. This company seemed to be a marketing set-up for various telecoms companies, so I assumed anything I signed would be with 02 and didn't think it might be a problem.
      They sent an email whilst I was on the phone to set up the direct debit mandate with my bank which I signed electronically. That was the first, of many, problems I found. Apparently THAT was my contract, binding me to 3 years and no 'cooling off' period, because I was a 'business' (meaning any consumer rights did not apply). When I subsequently asked in writing for a copy of my contract, that is what they sent - when I argued it was a DD mandate they insisted it was my contract!
      2 days later they asked for my phone details to get it unlocked which I sent. 10 days later, EE closed my account, so I changed the SIM card to 02 that had come a few days before. No network! They had done nothing about unlocking it. Fortunately I was lucky with EE who managed to give me the right codes, rather than the usual 10 days to go through Samsung.
      By this time I was suspicious of their set-up and wanted to cancel. As I said earlier, I found myself trapped into a 3 year contract with no 14 day cooling off period (they don't offer that). Promises to deal with my complaints never happened, promised return calls neither....and on and on.
      Ofcom's rules apply to consumers and small businesses (under 10 employees), yet this shower don't acknowledge that. They just repeat and repeat that I am a business so it doesn't apply. To cancel the contract I have to pay the full 3 year's fees!!
      I would like to know if others have had similar experiences? Or does anyone know how I can maybe declare the 'contract' unenforceable? I have never before been locked into something without a clear written contract, with t&c's! And, yes, I have asked, and yes, I have been ignored.
