    • I came back home on Monday and found this Claim form in my letter box. In the light of what I have explained earlier in regards to this debt claim, can anyone tell if I have any chance fighting it in th Court. SW in the last conversation request the proof of me living somewhere else, which I can't provide. They have info from the landlord of property being rented to me, I was there on electoral register, had bank account opened on this address, Driving licence had this address etc., but I wasn't living there.      Name of the Claimant -  Southern Water services   Date of issue – 12/06/2019     Particulars of Claim   The Claimant is statutory...etc The Claimant claims the sum £969 for unpaid water and or sewerage charges payable under s. 142-144 of the act and the Claimant Charges Scheme. The unpaid sum of £969 is for period 01/04/2014 - 08/07/2015. The claimant claims interest under section 69 of the County Courts Act 1984 at the rate of 8% a year  from 08/07/2015 to 11/06/2019 and also interest at the same rate up to the date of the judgment or earlier payment at daily rate of £0.21   What is the total value of the claim? £1423   Have you received prior notice of a claim being issued pursuant to paragraph 3 of the PAPDC ( Pre Action Protocol) ? yes Letter before Action   Have you changed your address since the time at which the debt referred to in the claim was allegedly incurred?  Yes, COA address.   Did you inform the claimant of your change of address? No Is the claim for - a Bank Account (Overdraft) or credit card or loan or catalogue or mobile phone account?    No, water charges   When did you enter into the original agreement before or after April 2007 ? Allegedly after - April 2012   Do you recall how you entered into the agreement...On line /In branch/By post ? No   Is the debt showing on your credit reference files (Experian/ Equifax /Etc...) ? No, no anymore   Has the claim been issued by the original creditor or was the account assigned and it is the Debt purchaser who has issued the claim. Southern Water - original creditor   Were you aware the account had been assigned – did you receive a Notice of Assignment?   Did you receive a Default Notice from the original creditor? No.   Have you been receiving statutory notices headed “Notice of Default sums” – at least once a year ? No   Why did you cease payments? Never. I wasn't aware of bills.   What was the date of your last payment? Never   Was there a dispute with the original creditor that remains unresolved? Yes, creditor did not take my notice of bills being wrongly issued in my name.   Did you communicate any financial problems to the original creditor and make any attempt to enter into a debt management plan? No  
    • If the case was brought before a UK civil court would UK rules apply or foreign rules?   I wonder if the original contract would strate what jurisdiction it's terms would be decided by?   I note that UK contracts frequently have a clause that says in so many words that any disputes  will be interpreted under UK law.
    • http://www.hadefpartners.com/News/333/Limitation-periods-in-the-United-Arab-Emirates   One of the key limitation periods to be aware of is the limitation period for a claim for breach of contract. We have been approached by many clients (including in-house counsel at large multinational and local companies, and even international law firms) who believe that the limitation period for a breach of contract (including a commercial contract) in the UAE is 15 years. What they are often not aware of is that the limitation period for commercial contracts (as set out in Federal Law 18 of 1993 (the “Commercial Code”)) is usually 10 years. Therefore, multi-million dollar claims dating back over more than 10 years may now be time-barred.   https://www.jstor.org/stable/3381662?seq=1#page_scan_tab_contents

    • This is a bit of a lengthy one but I’ll summerise best as possible.
       
      THIS IS HOW THE PHONECALL WENT 
       
      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....

Britannia Repossession / Eviction - Help & Advice Needed with N244

Recommended Posts

the Claim number stays the same.    Personally I would wait for the eviction notice from the court, the fee will be much cheaper - if the court say they have received the request for eviction from the lender then it won't be long before the notice arrives with you.   If you post the N244 pack by special delivery the day the eviction notice arrives, they will get it the next day, they will then phone for payment (make sure you have put a contact number on the form, and then carry phone around with you, so you don't miss their call).

Ok, Thank you.

 

Will I need to attach copy of the eviction warrant with N244?

You can do, although they will know what it is from the claim number.   Take a photocopy of the notice and paperclip it to the front of the N244

Ok thank you.

 

In the letter I sent to lender, being included with N244 pack, should I also include copy of the postal receipt & their signature, or is that not necessary?

I have everything ready to send to the court - Thank you again for your help.

 

Still no eviction notice received. I did receive a letter today addressed to one of my neighbours, so am a bit worried that the eviction notice could have been delivered to wrong address.

 

It was applied for on 3rd June - Should I have received eviction date by now? Will this be hand delivered or through the post and should I also receive confirmation from Britannias' solicitor? 

 

Do you think I should email the court or the lenders solicitor to ask if they have an eviction date? 

 

Also, should I put anything in writing to solicitor informing them that I will be defending any eviction?

Thank you for the quick replies. 

 

Couldn't see it at all earlier but now see has been merged. If Ell-enn or anybody else could advise on earlier post, would very much appreciate.

 

Should I also maybe put my offer of normal monthly payments plus amount towards arrears from August onwards forward to Britannia, along with completed I&e and fit note from GP?

For goodness sake just wait for the eviction notice and post your N244 pack as it is.

Not sure what I'm supposed to have done wrong this time .

If the eviction was applied for on 3rd June,  it would take some days for the court to register it - as most courts are extremely busy it could be up to 2 weeks before you actually get an eviction notice  - it could be hand delivered or delivered in the post , I've known it be either way -and the date for eviction could be up to 2 weeks after that - so the court will give you a hearing date before the actual date the eviction is due to take place.

 

You could email the court and ask if they have a date yet - but I wouldn't send too many emails,  it won't make it happen any faster and they may get irritated by having to answer too many times.

 

No point in emailing the solicitors - they won't know any more than you do - they will be advised of the hearing date at the same time as you. 

 

You don't have to tell the solicitors you are defending - the court will do that, they send them a copy of your N244.

 

You also asked " Should I also mabe put my offer of normal monthly payments plus amount towards arrears from August onwards forward to Britannia, along with completed I&e and fit note from GP? "   which is why I asked What for?  - it will make no difference whatsoever at this stage.

 

All you can do at the moment is wait for the eviction notice.  You don't need to be constantly going over what else you can do - there is nothing else to do.

I know it must be frustrating having to wait, but that's just the way it is I'm afraid.

Thanks for answering the questions

 

What for? In the hope they might cancel the eviction perhaps?

 

And Yes. It is VERY stressful - Being berated for asking any question or needing support is not really helpful.

 

I guess I'll just have to wait a bit longer then and have more sleepless nights worrying if I'll actually be given enough time to try to defend. I live in hope

They certainly won't cancel the proceedings at this stage.

 

I don't think you've been berated for asking questions - all I'm trying to do is to get you to stop stressing yourself further by looking for other avenues which don't exist.

 

Furthermore I don't think you can complain about the support you've had - it's certainly more than most - 201 posts in fact

Others have had their evictions cancelled at this stage from posts I've read.

 

You said "What for ?????   it's not going to make any difference now! For goodness sake just wait for the eviction notice and post your  N244 pack as it is."

 

This is my home at risk here and I don't think being told off for asking any perfectly reasonable question is going to make me stress any less. 

 

I don't think I was making any complaint about the support I've had and have repeatedly expressed my gratitude... Am pretty shocked at some of the remarks though.... which I don't really want to repeat... Again, just don't want to lose my home don't think any of my questions have been repeated or unreasonable. 

 

To be frank, If it wouldn't do any harm, I'd rather try to do something in the meantime of waiting for the eviction notice to arrive, as I would obviously prefer to not have to go to court at all if theres any possible chance of getting them to consider cancelling their action .

OK,  I'll leave you to do what you think best.  Let us know when you get an eviction notice and if you need any support for the actual hearing.

Of course I need the support - I wouldn't be here otherwise!

 

So do you think at the same time as waiting for eviction notice / sending N244 that it would be worth one final effort to write a letter of my offer to Britannia and include the budget sheet, in the hope that they cancel their action? If so I would really appreciate some help with wording for a letter.

At this stage, unless you can pay all the arrears there is no way they will stop the process, so I think you'd be wasting your time.

Agree, what offer can you make to Britannia that goes substantially towards the arrears ?

 

And what evidence do you have that you can reliably pay the mortgage each month as well as cover any remaining arrears ?

 

If you can start work again from August 2019, what evidence can you show a Judge, which would convince them that you will have the employment earnings to be able to pay the mortgage payments on time each month ?  Do you have copies of contracts from employers/clients, which show how much they will be paying you and when ?

 

To be obtain the mortgage originally, you would have needed to show evidence of earnings over a period of time. For self employment, mortgage companies require accounts for at least the previous 2 years.  Having gone through this process of proving your finances, you will hopefully have full records of your employment income, previous contracts for work you have done, Bank statement, financial accounts etc.  It might be worth having this proof available , just in case it was ever questioned whether you ever had the financial means to make mortgage payments and therefore there is no evidence that this is likely to change.


We could do with some help from you.
