    • Not much to say as Manxman has near enough covered all the angles.   Just a couple of points of clarification:   The requirement to serve the first NIP within 14 days is actually contained in the Road Traffic Offenders' Act, not the Road Traffic Act. In fact the first NIP is the only one required by law. Subsequent NIPs are usually provided along with the S172 Request for Driver's Details notice because they are both produced by the same system and are usually printed on the same piece of paper.   If you do decide to challenge the speeding allegation on the basis that the first NIP was served beyond 14 days the burden to prove that it was rests with you, not the recipient of that NIP. They have no basis (or need) to challenge it as the person prosecuted for speeding will be you, not them. As mentioned, once the police produce evidence to show that it was sent in time to be served within 14 days you will have to show to the court's satisfaction that it was not served.    You need to be very sure of your ground before embarking on this course of action. You need to find out who the RK is and when they received their NIP. There have been one or two notable successes with this strategy. Here's one:   https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-london-45668735   The RK of the car Mr Beckham was driving - Bentley Motors - had a good system of recording when post was received and the court was satisfied the NIP was received late.   You don't say what the speed alleged and the limit is but if it was within the course or Fixed Penalty limits it will cost you around £100. If you are convicted following a trial it will cost you an income related fine, a "victim surcharge" of 10% of the fine (minimum £34) and prosecution costs which have a starting point of £620.    
    • Hi all,   I was taken through consultation back in 2019 as my company restructured out dept.  Basically we went from 4 team leaders down to 3 so had to re-apply for our jobs. One thing that did not change was our contracts, they stayed the same but we did have a verbal agreement with our manager that a monthly contractual payment of £250 for working weekends would stop immediately.  At the time I was not fussed but I am now again going to be going through consultation and possibly TUPE transfer.  My questions is: Would I be eligible for this payment to be reinstated if I was TUPE transferred and could I request this to be back dated as it was a contractual payment that I did not officially agree to loosing?    Thank you in advance!  
    • Just looking at the date of the offence 12 December.  Possible was delayed in the post at that time as it was taking me up to 2 weeks to get a first class letter, then the New Year Shut down so to get it early January while the Xmas backlog was cleared seems about right to be honest.  Not that I am telling the police that. 
    • Please take note: I got 2 tickets for 32  miles in a 30 zone on different days.  The police said its their policy to ticket anything over 30!!   I had to pay £100 for one and do the course as well.  Even as a disabled driver there was no give on the tickets. Please stop saying that it has to be 35+ it really does not. West Midlands police in Nuneaton so definitely dont go 1 mile over in that area.

    • Hi @BankFodder
      Sorry for only updating you now, but after your guidance with submitting the claim it was pretty straight forward and I didn't want to unnecessarily waste your time. Especially with this guide you wrote here, so many thanks for that
      So I issued the claim on day 15 and they requested more time to respond.
      They took until the last day to respond and denied the claim, unsurprisingly saying my contract was with Packlink and not with them.
       
      I opted for mediation, and it played out very similarly to other people's experiences.
       
      In the first call I outlined my case, and I referred to the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 as the reason to why I do in fact have a contract with them. 
       
      In the second call the mediator came back with an offer of the full amount of the phone and postage £146.93, but not the court costs. I said I was not willing to accept this and the mediator came across as a bit irritated that I would not accept this and said I should be flexible. I insisted that the law was on my side and I was willing to take them to court. The mediator went back to Hermes with what I said.
       
      In the third call the mediator said that they would offer the full amount. However, he said that Hermes still thought that I should have taken the case against Packlink instead, and that they would try to recover the court costs themselves from Packlink.
       
      To be fair to them, if Packlink wasn't based in Spain I would've made the claim against them instead. But since they are overseas and the law lets me take action against Hermes directly, it's the best way of trying to recover the money.
       
      So this is a great win. Thank you so much for your help and all of the resources available on this site. It has helped me so much especially as someone who does not know anything about making money claims.
       
      Many thanks, stay safe and have a good Christmas!

The claimant.....as for them paying the hearing fee....its normally paid on account and given that they have complied with the directions its safe to presume it has been paid and they are proceeding.

So far so good...but you really need to do a bit of digging and find out the default date and the date of last payment to the original creditor.

  • dx100uk changed the title to Hoist/cohen claimform - Ex Barclaycard debt.

Hi Andy,

 

It looks like the last payment was made in June last year so not statue barred.

 

Still trying fond the default date, which I’m guessing will br around a year ago too. 

 

Thanks

Hi,

 

I have received a response to my CCA request, which was from Robinson Way saying it has been passed onto the relevant department and my account is on hold and as seen in the forum they have also returned the £1 postal order stating GDPR.

 

I have attached the letter.

 

Have yet to receive any acknowledgment on the CPR request so far.

 

Should I be starting to draft the defense now?

 

Thanks

Not due till the 13th August by 4.00pm.

 

With regards to the above...thats the standard template response from Robbers to a section 78 request.....not sure why they keep referring to GDPR and it being free.....section 78 is a completely different legislation under the CCA1974 and the request is not free its still £1.

 

They may think that account is on hold...I assume it is since the day they submitted the court claim...but the court claim is not on hold and the defence must be submitted by the above the stated date....irrespective.

Hello,

 

My defence needs to be in next week and I have drafted the below after reading on here. Would be grateful if some one can have a look and advise.

 

Many Thanks

 

T

 

 

1.The claim is for the sum of £2253 in respect of monies owing under the agreement with the account number xxxxxxx…… pursuant to the consumer credit act 1974 (CCA).

 

2.The debt was legally assigned by hoist portfolio holding ltd (EX Barclaycard) to the claimant and notice has been served.

 

3.The defendant has failed to make contractual payments under the terms of the agreement. A default notice has been served upon the defendant pursuant to s.87(1) CCA

The claimant claims

1.     The sum of £2253

2.     Costs

 

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Defence

 

1.The Defendant contends that the particulars of the claim are vague and generic in nature. The Defendant accordingly sets out its case below and relies on CPR r 16.5 (3) in relation to any particular allegation to which a specific response has not been made.

 

2.The Claimant has not complied with paragraph 3 of the PAPDC ( Pre Action Protocol) and Failed to serve a letter of claim pre claim pursuant to PAPDC changes of the 1st October 2017.It is respectfully requested that the court take this into consideration pursuant to 7.1 PAPDC.


3. Paragraph 1 is denied. Whilst I have had dealings with Barclaycard in the past, I cannot recall the specifics of the alleged agreement.

 

4. Paragraph 2 is denied. I have no knowledge of who the claimant is, nor have I been provided with any Notice of Assignment pursuant to the Law of Property Act 1925.

 

5.Paragraph 3 is denied. I am not aware of service of a Default Notice by the original creditor or Legal Assignment the claimant refers to within its particulars of claim .

 

6. It is denied that any amounts are due under any agreement.

 

7. On receipt of this claim I requested information pertaining to this claim from Howard Cohen & Co Solicitors by way of a CPR 31:14 request sent via recorded delivery on 15/07/2019. Further to this I have also sent Hoist Finance UK Holdings LTD a section 78 request via recorded delivery also on 15/07/2019.

 

To date, neither Howard Cohen nor Hoist Portfolio are yet to furnish me with the requested information.

 

8.Therefore the Claimant is put to strict proof to:-

 

a) show and disclose how the Defendant has entered into an agreement;

b) show and disclose how the Claimant has reached the amount claimed for;

c) show and evidence the nature of breach and service of a Default Notice pursuant to Sec 87 (1) CCA1974.

d) show how the Claimant has the legal right, either under statute or equity to issue a claim;

 

9. As per Civil Procedure Rule 16.5 (4) it is expected that the Claimant prove the allegation that the money is owed.

 

10. On the alternative, if the Claimant is an assignee of a debt, it is denied that the Claimant has the right to lay a claim due to contraventions of Section 136 of the Law of Property Act and Section 82A of the consumer credit Act 1974.6.

 

By reasons of the facts and matters set out above, it is denied that the Claimant is entitled to the relief claimed or any relief.

Hi,

 

I have filled in the option for mediation on the  directions questionnaire and today received an email with a slot to confirm. 
 

I have yet to receive any agreement from the CCA request but received a whole lot of statements and letters for the CPR Request,

 

Should I still go with mediation? ( it states to only proceed if all information is available)

 

Thanks again for the help

No...inform the mediation team they are in default of your section 78 request and therefore unable to enforce the agreement anyway.

We could do with some help from you.

Are you sure you made a payment in June last year? Does it appear consistent with your memory? Who gave you the information?

 

Also, it would be worth your while trying to establish the actual date the agreement was entered into.

Hi Andy, 

 

I have redacted the personal data.

 

To summaries,

  • I advised mediation that I don't have the CCA and received a letter from Court confirming transfer to local court
  • Received the attached yesterday, sending through "Reconstituted credit agreement". Although it looks like (from the CCA that they had this from August), is this a tactic?
  • Did nor receive anything from them on 19/9/19 as stated on the letter

Thanks,

so where the signed agreement

that's just a set of T^C's that might be from your sign up era

that could have come from anyones filing cabinet and had you name & address added.

 

please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...

It even has a covering letter from BarcalyCard saying it's only the T&C. There no agreement there or anything with anyone's name and address on. As DX says.

 

The BASE terms later on have 'Restricted Internal' stamped on them which implies they would not have been sent out to customers.

 

So it has to be the correct T&C (no idea if they are) and it has to actually have the correct agreement form as well ...

It also states the agreement has been varied...hence section 82 (1) CCA1974....cant use a reconstituted version for enforcement if varied....hence no agreement enclosed.
