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....

Insurance quote increased £1760 overnight

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, 

I'm a bit confused and would appreciate any advice to try and help me understand what's happened with my quotes. 

 

I'm currently 19 years old (male) and was disqualified last year for dangerous driving, very silly mistake and I've learned from my past actions. 

 

My ban is due up in the next 6 weeks and I am currently looking at new cars (sold my old one after I got banned) and their different insurance policies. 

 

I was getting quoted around 2k for a 1 litre corsa which I was happy with however whilst checking quotes I was checking multiple cars and changing the named drivers etc. 

 

I must have carried out dozens upon dozens of searches, mainly because I would find the same car, same year same mileage etc on 2 different sites and the only difference was the number plates and that would sometimes mean a change of around £300-400.

 

I chose a car which I was happy with and every week leading up to my  ban have just been checking the insurance quote through gocompare, just so I know the rough cost as for the past few months/weeks the cost can sometimes vary by a few hundred, going up and down, which I totally understand. 

 

I got a quote last Sunday for £2100 and refreshed my quotes today on gocompare and my cheapest quote was £3860!! :( 

No details have changed at all and whilst I was getting 20+ companies offering to insure me suddenly that's dropped to 4 with a lot of the companies who were previously offering some of the best quotes are today saying they are refusing to insure me.

I'm at a complete loss as to why this is.

 

Could it be because I have carried out so many searches?

In all my searches I've only ever changed the car, policy start date etc, I haven't been changing my name or address or my conviction or anything else.

How do I go about fixing this? (if possible)

 

If this is their final say I understand but there must be a reason for such a drastic change.

I won't be able to afford almost 4k on top of the car costs and am really stressed and worried.

Any help or guidance would be appreciated.

Thanks for your reply, I'm assuming it has been hard recorded somewhere as a concern or something on a database which is perhaps why all the insurers have been affected. Is there anywhere I can remove this?

I've checked my credit file with equifax and only have a handful of searches carried out this year, only 2 being car insurance checks. I phoned one of the insurers with the best quote previously and they told me it seemed bizarre and they couldn't understand why it would have increased so much and were at a loss to understand it. :( I asked them how I could go about finding out the cause or amending it and they said they didn't know. I don't really know how I can proceed.

Insurers that are connected to comparison sites do receive the data and they do have software which detects possible manipulation of the quotes, in order to receive a cheaper premium. You may have entered your personal information correctly each time, but doing multiple quotes with different cars, different drivers, etc, would have been flagged up.

 

If you saved a quote for a particular car, it should be valid for 30 days or whatever the comparison site advises. So if you wanted to proceed on the basis of a saved quote, then you should be able to do so. If the premium changes, when you have not altered the details, then you need to take it up with the comparison site in the first instance.

 

The other issue is when you want to pay by instalments. As soon as you change payment method to monthly Direct Debit, it makes a massive difference.  The amount payable then includes quite a high interest rate.


We could do with some help from you.

as above but the insurers also do another thing, they up the premium quoted the nearer the date is to the required insurance date so for example, ask for a quote a month in advance and you get a much lower premium tha if your insurance runs out tonight!

If you had purged all of the cookies on your computer between each session that would have made a difference as well, the same applies to purchasing airline tickets, the keener you appear to be the higher the price and their cookies tell them when, how often etc you do the searches even if the information entered each time is different
