Southern Water/ Shulmans claimform - water and sewerage charges ...


Recommended Posts

Just filed "Acknowledgment of Service" on-line via MCOL.

(Deadline 4pm tomorrow)

 

I ticked the box to defend all of the claim.

Question: Do I have to send "Defence N9B" off now as well? Or do I get time to file this later next week?

 

 

Be very grateful for any help

  • dx100uk changed the title to Southern Water/ Shulmans claimform - water and sewerage charges ...

https://cse.google.com/cse?cx=partner-pub-8889411648654839:3134625398&q=Shulmans claimform&oq=Shulmans claimform&gs_l=partner-generic.3...36902.40190.2.40859.10.10.0.0.0.0.196.1198.3j7.10.0.gsnos%2Cn%3D13...0.3295j1292363j10...1.34.partner-generic..15.0.0.QPmkTk22YNg

 

numerous of these above get reading all of them.

 

9/10 SW don't have a clue the claim has been raised.

 

pay PARTICULAR ATTENTION to the threads whereby part of the claimed sum is statute barred, they can only claimback 6yrs from the date of the claim.

you are both jointly responsible, you must EACH do everything the other does, AOS,CPR,N180,N157,WS etc etc.

 

I would closely follow the recommended actions in the threads above

1st port of call is a CPR 31:14 each and get on the phone to SW tomorrow {NOT SHULMANS!!) 

also don't forget the water aid scheme too.

 

why has your ex not been ever paying the water bills?

why has your ex not been ever paying the water bills?

My ex has ongoing mental heath issues. 

 

We moved into the address March 2009:

After 3 months my daughter and I had to seek refuge from her mother(my ex).

 

We were asked to return for a few months in 2010.

Had to flee again soon after.

I had set up all other utilities right at the start, had to flee before getting round to arranging WS utility.

I assumed that she had set it up, in her own right. 

 

AOS,CPR,N180,N157,WS etc etc.

I have been very ill over the past couple of days with COPD strapped to an oxygen bottle.

Anything I should not say to Southern Water when I can contact them?

 

I used to be much better at this, any quick links to templates for the above please?

 

My ex has had a letter yesterday from Shulmans (addressed to both of us) asking to arrange a settlement to avoid judgement.

I have spoken to her to say do not contact them to respond.

 

Thanks

So.......Just spent the last 35 minutes on the phone to Southern Water Services (allegedly),

operator took details accessed Water account confirmed some details

(nothing apparently on Southern Water account/customer system regards any pending legal action) (operator suggested that my ex partner is charged just 20% of any rate)

 

then responded to my request to attempt to speak with their Litigation department.

Put on hold for 5 minutes.

Then given a number to ring.

Number discontinued.

Redirected to the same number I called originally.

 

Again put on hold....when answered by alleged litigation department,

I gave what I believe was a valid customer number,

they insisted on a customer reference number, which I seemingly don't have.

 

They wanted to know if I had legal proof that I do not live at claim address.

I do but can't provide such proof without going back to court to grant disclosure.

 

after some toing and froing it became clear that I was talking to someone (possibly firewalling) at UK Search.

At this point I politely ended the call,

restating that I had asked to speak directly with someone at Southern Water suggesting I would seek out alternative approach.

 

Attempting to get my ex to undertake exactly what I do will be pretty difficult.

I will do my best though.

 

I will now complete the CPR 31:14 which I am assuming I should fire off to Shulmans.

Copy to Southern Water??

 

Not sure, need advice.

Please treat this letter as my request made under CPR 31.14 for the disclosure and the production of a verified and legible copy of [each of the following / the] document(s) mentioned in your Particulars of Claim:

 

There are no documents mentioned in their POC. Should I simply  delete:

mentioned in your Particulars of Claim:

 

Then? Just list and request copies of all Bills/Invoices, statements of accounts, Calculations of water consumption/sewage disposal. Copies of all written/ recorded comunications undertaken between Southern Water Services Limited conducted or addressed to myself and the co-defendant in this case.

Okey doke.

 

One other question.

 

Which address do I use?

The address used on the claim form?

 

Then request at the end to send all paperwork to my current address?

 

Or both?

Yes. I haven't lived at the address on the claimform since effectively 2009/10.

I remain on the council tenancy aggreement of address on claimform due to Family Court Orders granted in 2011. It's complicated I'd guess.  Not much I can say on an open forum to be honest.

 

Form a my previous post:

They wanted to know if I had legal proof that I do not live at claim address.

I do but can't provide such proof without going back to court to grant disclosure.

then how did you get the claimform then?
your oh sent it to you.?

 

you MUST update MCOL with your correct address

and always use your correct address on anything sent to any of the players in your claim.

 

the same applies for your OH.

you can send stuff upon her behalf but ofcourse when it comes to signing things like the N180 and your witness statements, she will need to sign hers.
