    • So with a long working history, which she can evidence, it should not be a problem. Still have to go though HRT process for any benefit application, if they have been out of the UK for more than 6 weeks. It won't be a smooth process though. Suggest they try to get advice via Embassy, before they start any journey.
    • Dep Thx Eric's Brother. There was a person on this forum who told me his case was thrown out at the same court because of the contract. I requested more info, but he has disappeared since his case was dismissed.  I was just wondering whether it was worth whacking off a letter to IPS pointing out one of their members, using their logo, is making a claim based on illegal signage and other issues in contravention of their Code of Practice. Would they lean on VCS to withdraw, do you think?
    • Mother and father worked here and then went to SA in about 1978 returning to UK in about 1996 and worked here until 2016 when her husband died at age 66.  He was still working at the time.  She then went to live with daughter in SA.  Mother only claims for her pension. 
    • Thanks, I owe the money, no issue with that, I will SAR the company.  If I need to just pay it and have the CCJ for a few years so be it.  Just thought I'd explore all options
    • By the way you wrote that post, i can see that you are as confused by the situation as someone reading it. Important advice must be not to pay for any flights etc, until they understand the situation fully. Those that have British passports could be entitled to receive UK benefits. However, nothing is that straightforward. The passport does guarantee anything. The daughter could be entitled to Universal Credit ( which includes housing) as a British passport holder, but this can only be confirmed when she has gone through the Habitual Residency test (HRT). So you will need to read about HRT for British passport holders returning to the UK. There will be requirements to provide information about why they are returning to the UK and what work searches have they done to find work on their return to the UK. In regard to the mother who has a British passport, you will be correct in presuming that no council is going to be helpful in paying for the care home fees immediately on arrival in the UK. When did the mother last live in the UK ? When did the mother last work in the UK ? British embassy in South Africa may be able to provide information and assist with applications ? Just getting on a plane, landing in the UK and expecting help to resolve their situation, would be a silly thing to do. I can see the mother ending up in an NHS hospital for a period, while people wondered how they were going to deal with the situation. Probably not the first to do this, but if the mother also has a South African passport, they could put her on a plane back to SA and then the Daughter would be a difficult situation. Embassy in South Africa must be first place of advice.

Erudio/Drydens - claim court form - ADVICE NEEDED

Recommended Posts

Hi, 

I sent the CCA request and CPR 31.14 - I sent this almost two weeks ago on the 2nd October. I have not heard from either. 

 

This is what I’m planning to add in the defence which I will tonight - it is due by Friday 18th OctOber this week. I just wondered if what I’ve written below is ok? Thanks to all for advice and wise words. 

 

1 The Claimant's claim was issued on (insert date).

 2 The Defendant contends that the Claimant's claim so issued is a claim in contract and is statute barred pursuant to the provisions of section 5 of the limitation act 1980. 

 

If, which is denied, the claimant contends that the Defendant is in breach of the alleged contract, in excess of 6 years have elapsed since the date on which any cause of action for breach accrued for the benefit of the Claimant.

 

 3 The Claimant's claim to be entitled to payment of £[insert figure from their POC]  or any other sum, or relief of any kind is denied.

what have they got that they can respond too that counters your SB defence?

zilch.

 

as with every erudio claimform or PAPLOC thread on CAG

you solely got the claim because for whatever reason , to that date, everything was ignored.

 

once a response is made

they go away.

 

default CCJ avoided.

you must read up and understand how arrows [erudio!!] operate

Well yes considering the claimant has 33 days to decide if they wish to proceed...you need to brush up here and read a few threads on what the normal process is.

Drydens have recently responded to my defence. 

 

It says: “Having now had the opportunity of discussing the Defence with our client, we enclose the following documentation addressing the issues you raise in the Defence and in support of the our client’s Claim against you:

 

The relevant limitation period in respect of this type of debt is 6 years pursuant to section 5 of the Limitation Act 1980 (“the act”). By section 29 of the act, there is fresh accrual of the relevant limitation period upon each part payment. We can confirm that the last payment was 18 April 2017 in the sum of £25.00. The limitation defence which you have filled is therefore, without merit”.

 

Then it goes onto say, “we are in a position to progress our client’s Claim against you and would therefore, invite you to now settle this matter without the need for further legal action."

 

Then it says I have 14 days to make the payment or contact their offices. 

 

I’m concerned that it is “14 days” from when the letter was dated, however the letter only arrived this Tuesday (3rd December) although it’s dated 19th November. There isn’t a date stamped on the envelope. 

 

I really don’t want to make contact with this organisation. What can I do? Thanks

I have just been checking my old bank statements and it appears I made a payment to Capquest?! 

 

So does that definitely counter my SB defence?

opps why didn't you say so

are you sure this payment wasn't made against a differing account number than the number in their POC?

I completely forgot, I didn’t think as it was Cap-quest. 

 

I checked and the payment matches with the number in the POC. 

 

I don’t want to call Dryden’s although I’m concerned about the “legal” action.

 

What do you think I should I do next? 

 

Nasty company!

From looking at my emails - they wanted me to set up a plan..  I made three payments of £25 in 2017. Which I forgot about. So is that right that the SB claim is null? 

 

 I stopped because I thought I had defered. But then I realised they had taken over the loan from SLC. 

 

I'm not keen to call Drydens - what can I do next?

Who said you have to call anyone

Yes it might upset your defence..however..

 

So how did they con you into paying when you have never earned over the threshold??

Can we see these emails suitably redacted please

They are only confirmation emails to say that I have made a payment. It doesn't have that much info on them. Is it worth calling Capquest? 

 

I also can't seem to find any paperwork from Capquest. I guess it was threatening letter - saying that Erudio have passed on my account.
