    • I sent one to Together Money- who are Blemain I believe?  Unless there's another address ? I sent one by post to the address on the Together site...
    • Hi I have received not one but three of the same PAP letters (just different amounts and details) from Moriarty Law, allegedly for three different ADCB credit cards taken out in UAE in 2009 for a total debt they claim is now almost 200,000 pounds across the three accounts.  I think I may have had one credit card from them, but there was nowhere near that amount outstanding, if anything, when I left the UAE for good on September 30, 2010. There is a difference with my case, however and I need some advice.  I have lived in Hong Kong since 2012 (I am a permanent resident there) and the letters have been sent to my elderly mother's address, which is where my UK bank account is registered, and have been forwarded to me. Though they are dated August 20 and 21 I only received them yesterday. There are also two follow-up "Final demand before proceedings letter" both dated September 8. In previous years there have only been various DCA letters sent which have all been ignored My queries are this: 1. What would happens if the letters were returned with a note that this person is "no longer lives at this address" - moved abroad” 2. Or should I return the PAP reply form anyway as set out on this forum but with no address on it (it might confuse them with a Hong Kong stamp on the envelope I guess) 3. If I do that, should I send the three forms separately or together? 4. Should I return it saying I have left the country adn not to send any more correspondece to my old address? 5 Or is there any other advice you can give.  I am not sure if I reveal that I am in Hong Kong that could stop UK proceedings, could I have a CCJ in absentia and could it be enforced, or whether could chase me for it in Hong Kong which has a similar statue of limitation law to UK? Thanks for any speedy advice. Time is short because it takes four or five days for post to get between UK and HK.

    • Hi   Repair and Support Plan states: If your product goes wrong after the 3rd Repair, you can request a replacement.(The faults must be mechanical they say e.g Hard Drive as opposed to physical/accidental to qualify for replacement/vouchers).   My Laptop has had 4 Hard Drive replacements. They are attempting to claim that a corner being missing when the laptop went in for repair over rides Hard Drive Failure and are therefore claiming my laptop has had only 3 repairs.   Also Well fix in 7 days or replacement-1 of the repairs took almost a month. Ive refused delivery of my `fixed` laptop now for 3 months while arguing to and fro with them that they have breached the support plan and I want replacement vouchers.They are now charging me £50 to store my laptop and are going to dispose of it in 6 days if I dont contact them. Been through usual channels..Consumer advice... just found out they wont participate in ADR. I loathe this company they are a disgrace. Ive paid A support Plan £11 per month for over 8 years. Im aware how bad they are and how many people they have shafted. Anyone any idea where I stand ..what I do?I dont want them to get away with broaching the policy as well as binning my laptop.Im left with nothing.

Hello everyone,

 

I have recently issued a small claim against a company, but do not want to go through with it any further.

 

The defendant did issue a defence and requested for Mediation, but subsequently changed their mind.

 

I was wondering if I can still issue a Notice of discontinuance (N279) form before the case being allocated to a track? If yes, which court do I write down? Should I send this via post to the Money Claims centre in Manchester or via email?

 

I have been utilising the new beta Money Claims service, which does not provide information on the matter.

 

I was wondering if anyone could assist me? I'm new to this and this is my first small claims case.

Yes you can....a claimant may discontinue all or part of a claim at any time.

Have you filed your DQ yet ? If not you send it to MCOL Northampton or wherever you issued the claim from.

 

Regards

 

Andy

I haven't been sent a Notice of proposed allocation form (N149A) as of yet.

 

The problem is the new Money Claims website does not list any mailing address, everything so far has been done on-line or via email. I did not use to MCOL option. Would you know if the address is identical to the Northampton one?

Another related question

 

If I issue Notice of discontinuance now, would I be liable to the other parties legal costs? Should I pay for the hearing fee and wait just to 100% make sure the case gets allocated to the small claims track before submitting the form?

 

I'm concerned that my case may get allocated down the fast-track route.

 

Thanks

Just under £4,000.00.

 

My concern is there are personal injury elements, but my claim is solely focused on the contract when the services / goods were sold to me, which did not stipulate all the potential risks that could have occurred.

 

I am only pursuing for a full refund of fees paid for the product, rather than damages incurred.

Small claims track...CPR 38 is not applicable...but I understand you are concerned that its not yet been allocated as yet.

 

It is and will be assumed its SCT and treated same...therefore you are safe to discontinue...but if your real intention is to reissue an amended claim..then that would require permission of the court..because of discontinuance.

 

So your options are .....

 

Discontinue the claim

Let it go to allocation and dont pay the hearing fee...claim will be struck out.

Or request permission to amend your particulars.

Hello,

 

I received the following from the Online Court in regards to the defendant issuing a claim for my case to be striken out and want to know how best to proceed:-

 

District Judge xx sitting at the Civil Money Claims Online Court considered the file and made directions.

 

UPON the Defendant having made an application which is not supported by the Online Court and the file being referred to a judge pursuant to the Civil Procedure Rules PD 51R 75

 

It is ordered that:

 

1) The case do exit the Online Court and be sent to the Defendant's Home Court to be placed forthwith before a judge of that court to consider listing directions.

 

2) Because this Order has been made without a hearing, the parties have the right to apply to have the order set aside, varied or stayed. A party making such an application must send or deliver the application to the court (together with any appropriate fee) to arrive within seven days of service of this Order

 

3) For the purposes of paragraph 2 above, a reference to "the court" means the County Court hearing centre to which the claim has been sent.

 

Thanks

Simply means its been transferred to your local County Court and the defendants application will be dealt with there...the court will inform you of the hearing date.

Ok sorry I did not know about this.

 

I haven't discontinued the claim as of yet, as I'm still not sure if I should continue with the claim or not. I do have a strong case, but the defendant clearly thinks otherwise. It is just a lot of work trying to organise everything in relation to this.

Hello everyone,

I have now been sent a letter  notifying me that "The hearing of the defendant's application dated xx to STRIKE OUT CLAIM (see copy attached) will take place at xx on the xx - t/e 30 minutes"

I was wondering if I, as the claimant, had to attend this hearing?

Thanks.

Looks like you've been shafted and if you loose the application, your up for £1500 of costs as its not been allocated to track. Best bet is a charm offensive on the defendant if you have no case.

 

This is the first cyber judge order I've seen. Didn't know Civil Money Claims Pilot had judges!

 " Didn't know Civil Money Claims Pilot had judges!"

 

It doesent it refers back to MCOL (at the moment) if the claim is defended

Just an update regarding the above. I attended the strike out hearing and the judge ruled in my favour. I recently received an offer from the defendant, which I am willing to accept. How does one make sure that the defendant actually pays me the money?

 

I will issue a Notice of discontinuance (N279) form as well, but I was not sure in regards to my query above.

 

Thanks

The only issue is that CPR 38.6 states:

(1) Unless the court orders otherwise, a claimant who discontinues is liable for the costs which a defendant against whom the claimant discontinues incurred on or before the date on which notice of discontinuance was served on the defendant.

 

As my case has not be allocated to any track as of yet, how does the above work out? In addition, I have a hearing coming up soon to discuss the fact the defendant wanted to introduce evidence in the form of a written report from an expert. How does one get this cancelled as well?

Thats why I didnt tell you to submit a notice of discontinuance...I told you to inform the court its been settled and they will close the claim ...not you.

Ok that makes sense. I have another query, if the defendant states "we will pay your costs as entitled under the court rules" how does that work? I assume this relates to the interest accrued for the duration of the case. Will the defendant calculate this sum accordingly and include it on top of the full and final settlement of the claim?
