    • 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
    • how long did you sign up for ? if they claimed DD after that period …….

    • 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....

buildings insurance company OCASO making my life hell after flooding.

Recommended Posts

I have a buildings insurance company that has bullied me knowing I am unwell and suffering for post-concussion syndrome and due to spending time in my flooded damp accommodation  I now have chest pain and breathing problems etc. In addition, I have a disability and they refuse to make adjustments.

 

The flood has ruined my entire property, and I am not at fault it was the neighbours above me and I have evidence that it was deliberate.  They have put me in hotel accommodation and in that hotel Accommodation I have been bullied and the insurance company refused to remove me to a different accommodation for a few weeks. They have said I had to deal with the complaints in the hotel.

 

However, because the insurance book through a third party booking.com I had to complain to them and they said because I didn’t pay for the booking that I have no right to complain.

 

There were delays checking into a different hotel and service room apartment. They know I have heavy  luggage they wouldn’t pay for the travel to and from the accommodation. And it has injured my shoulder by pulling my heavy luggage. They told me to pay for my accommodation. I refused but that meant calling out of hours loss adjuster and using my telephone to resolve the booking that I had been instructed had been booked previously but the made an error on the booking.

 

In the end the service room apartment started the bulling me and then when I complained they said they will not book me in a room again and neither would booking.com.

 

The insurance company instructed me to find own accommodation I have 14 days to find my own work men. In addition, they refuse to answer the phone to me and communicate with me.  

As it stands, they have refused to accommodate me and have not started the drying out, I had no choice but to go back to my flooded accommodation and have become unwell because it has black mould and back water which has affected my health.

 

I have been in and out of hospital due to, living in this damp condition. They have said find your own accommodation and you have to pay the money for it and we will decide if we want to pay you.

 

Therefore, I got another company in involved propertyallclaims  and the surveyor said they will help and instruct the insurance company to do the works. 

 

They now have turned against me.  The surveyor has told me that he will sort this out, the office of all propertyclaims  told me to find accommodation. 

 

They now are saying I have to book it and that the insurance company will pay for whatever I want. 

 

In addition, the surveyor has said he will not make additional adjustments for my disability, he does not care about any acts either and the insurance company does not want to talk to me.  

I showed him the black water in his first visit I sent the video through what’s apps. He noted this. I told him I am ill for staying in the flat.  

 

He has delayed the accommodation because he said I have to remove all the content’s in my property. I have found out evidence that they removed all contents from another property. But won’t give me the same treatment . This is racism. 

 

The surveyor has said he wants to revisit the property however I said to email, what he wants to discuss before he visit’s the property with another person and to make reasonable adjustments to the emails. 

He said if I end the contract then he will sue me and he has been quite nasty in his communication towards me.

 

Therefore, I text that I will go for settlement and he blocked me on the what’s app and will not talk to me. 

 I am aware the insurance company and all property claims want to make money. I am aware that I have to find my own builder’s but I don’t what these companies to black list my name and speak untrue words about my person to company I get quotes from. 

 

What should a do this is just a brief summary of events.

Can you help ?

Please will you tell us who the insurer is
is it your policy?
Please tell us how the damage occurred
try to give this reasonable detail in a bullet pointed chronology so that we understand what the situation is. You have very substantially about the effect on you but you haven't really told us very much about the cause

try and keep things clear in your mind about what you want from both this forum adn also from the insurers/builders etc. making accusations of discrimination just muddy the water and will probaly cause the contributuions to go off at a tangent from what you actually need as far as advice goes.

So I will kick off and ask have the nsurers or surveyors given you any timescale for getting te works done. Have you found a copmpany to take the work on?

Also, as you ahve employed an agency to do the chasing have things become clearer? what about booking your own accommodationa dn telling them abut it so they foot the bill, have they agreed to your choice?
