    • Thank you @honeybee13. I will try to write one. I read here that even without the out of court settlement some people  have not received the  criminal record but only a fine. I don't know what to think anymore. 
    • Thanks I appreciate your time How does this sound?   On FRIDAY 29TH May I used your service to send a parcel under the above reference number. The parcel did not arrive at the destination and after several exchanges with your customer service staff, I was told that the item was lost. I was also told that I would not be entitled to full compensation for my items despite having provided you with receipts for these items as I had only opted for the standard £20 compensation. I did not opt for this compensation – as you will know, there is no option to decline this basic cover when scheduling a parcel. Furthermore, it is grossly unfair for a consumer to have to insure against your negligence and contrary to the unfair terms provisions in the Consumer Rights Act. I'm quite sure that you are fully aware that any term you might have in your contract which relies on customers having insurance against your negligent handling of their items causing them to be lost is an unfair term and is unenforceable. I notice that you systematically rely on such terms to deprive your customers of the correct compensation and effectively to protect you from the consequences of your negligent handling of your customers’ sent items. If you force this to a court hearing – you can be certain that I shall be producing evidence from many different sources to show that you systematically lose parcels and decline liability on spurious grounds which are unfair and unenforceable. The contents of my parcel were worth £160. There was also the cost of the postage which was £9.92. The full amount I am claiming is therefore £169.92. You may email me at ____________ in order to arrange this payment. If I do not have reimbursement in full within 14 days then I shall issue a claim in the County Court to recover this money from you plus interest and without any further notice. Yours faithfully _____
    • Hi.   SJP = Single Justice Procedure. Here's some reading for you https://www.gov.uk/single-justice-procedure-notices   If you want to ask for an out of court settlement, you need to deal with TfL. You could write to them if you have a contact name, there are examples of letters in threads here.   HB
    • Hi,  I have sent email requesting information as to why my original email was not actioned. I did have the case number in the subject line on my email.  I only got a letter from registry trust, nothing else from courts or Shoosmiths thanks 
    • @dx100uk  I have received only the charge for this journey.  Sorry for my ignorance but what is a SJP?  the charge has been made at 21 june  2020 but I received this only yesterday. Now they ask me to make my plea and I have 21 days to do so, but I want to try an out of court settlement. There is not any court date on the papers they sent me now though.

    • Hi,  
      I was in Sainsbury’s today and did scan and shop.
      I arrived in after a busy day at work and immediately got distracted by the clothes.
       
      I put a few things in my trolley and then did a shop.
      I paid and was about to get into my car when the security guard stopped me and asked me to come back in.
       
      I did and they took me upstairs.
      I was mortified and said I forgot to scan the clothes and a conditioner, 5 items.
      I know its unacceptable but I was distracted and Initially hadn’t really planned to use scan and shop.
       
      No excuse.
      I offered to pay for the goods but the manager said it was too late.
      He looked at the CCTV and because I didn’t try to scan the items he was phoning the police.
       
      The cost of the items was about £40.
      I was crying at this point and told them I was a nurse, just coming from work and I could get struck off.
       
      They rang the police anyway and they came and issued me with a community resolution notice, which goes off my record in a year.
      I feel terrible. I have to declare this to my employer and NMC.
       
      They kept me in a room on my own with 4 staff and have banned me from all stores.
      The police said if I didn’t do the community order I would go to court and they would refer me to the PPS.
       
      I’m so stressed,
      can u appeal this or should I just accept it?
       
      Thanks for reading

Marston letter.pdf

 

I have only received the above reply from marston nothing as yet from the LAA.

i find it funny that Marstons say they can take into account my wifes income and then begin to ask for more details of income . ???????

 

Do i wait for a LAA reply before i do anything further.

Hi there,

 

Take a good look through all of the links we have posted you. They are trying to rob you blind. Powerless DCA , trying it on. In future everything needs to be sent in writing by post BTW. Email just gives the likes of Marstons another conduit to carry out their intimidation tactics. Please send in writing to the LAA. Marston's 'Opinion' on this means nothing.

Email recieved today from LAA 
Looks like im screwed
The info they ask for was supplied last december. 
To:
  •  You
 
 
 

Dear Mr

 

Thank you for your email dated 1st June 2020.

 

I note your comments expressed regarding your Capital Contribution Order, ownership of the property  and financial assets held.

 

Having looked through our records I can confirm we have detailed your partner having 100% ownership of the property. Please be advised that, when assessing your liability, we can consider your partner's assets as your own. This is as per Regulation 4 of the Criminal Legal Aid (Contribution Orders) Regulations 2013 which states:

 

“Where an individual has a partner –

 

  1. In calculating the financial resources of the individual, the Director must treat the financial resources of the partner as the individual’s financial resources; and
  2. Any reference in these Regulations to the financial resources, financial circumstances, income or capital of the individual includes a reference to the financial resources, financial circumstances, income or capital of the individual’s partner. “

 

As such I must confirm that it is correct that your partner’s capital and equity has been included when assessing your liability for a Capital Contribution Order (CCO). I will now explain how your CCO has been calculated.

 

CCOs are calculated from disposable capital. This is the total of your joint capital and equity, less an allowance of £30,000. The amount of your Disposable Capital is £123, This figure has been calculated using the capital and equity figures that you declared on your application Legal Aid. The figures are as follows:

  • Equity in property: £150,000 (Property Value: £150,000, Mortgage Value: £0)
  • Capital (savings): £3,241 
  • Total Capital and Equity: £153,000
  • Disposable Capital (Total Capital and Equity, minus £30,000) = £123.000

 

Income and capital contributions are required to cover your Final Defence Costs (FDCs), this is the total of bills paid by the Legal Aid Agency to your solicitor and barrister. I can confirm that we have paid total FDCs of £112,. You have paid an income contribution of £5.6k leaving an outstanding balance of £106,. As your disposable capital exceeds this amount, you have been issued with a CCO to cover the remaining FDCs in full.

 

As advised above we are correct to include your partner’s equity when assessing your liability. As such, I must confirm that your CCO has been calculated correctly and cannot be reviewed at this time. As such you remain liable for the amount of £106,  

 

We can review your CCO if you disagree with the figures used. If you would like us to conduct a review of your CCO we will require the following information:

  • 2 x Independent non-internet based property valuations as at the time of conviction (December 2019).
  • Mortgage statement at the time of conviction (December 2019).
  • Copies of any charges registered against the property (Must be registered with and Registry)

 

When applying for Legal Aid you declared having £3, in capital but have since advised to have £390 in capital. I must advise you that a request for your capital evidence was sent on the 17th May 2019, however we have not received this evidence from yourself. Therefore, for each account held by yourself and your partner please provide the following:

  • 3 months consecutive bank statements up to the date of declaration (16th May 2019).
  • Recent bank statements showing the  current balance.
  • Clarification as to the reason for the change in capital value.

 

With regards to your income contribution, this was assessed using the Pension figures declared. If you believe the assessment is incorrect please do not hesitate to contact us advising of what errors you believe have been made. Please provide any evidence to support your claims. I have attached a copy of the means assessment to this email for your perusal.

 

Once you have obtained the above, please submit these to the National Crime Team as soon as possible.

 

I note your requests with regards to phone calls. Regrettably I must advise that we are unable to place a hold on your account and our agents will continue collection efforts. I would advise that you submit any evidence for a review as soon as possible. If you do not disagree with the figures we have used then I must advise that you remain liable and should contact our collection and enforcement agents, Marston Holdings Ltd, to arrange payment of the outstanding balance.

 

If you have any queries please do not hesitate to get in touch via the contact details below.

 

Yours sincerely,

 

 

Legal Aid Agency

A couple of points,

 

1 See post 6 N244

2. Never email, always in writing

3. Along with the N244 send all medical, doctors and consultants letters regarding your wife's disability, medications etc. Explain that she is a high risk for Covid 19 and you do not want anymore correspondence from the LAA, Marstons or anything hinting at a threat of eviction.

 

Side effects of medication etc, such as depression anxiety? important for doc to mention in letter.

were you convicted in a magistrates court or a county court

i'm not sure what effect that has but apparently it's important.

 

you also need to read post 6 from London 1971 again VERY carefully

 

yours wifes condition can over turn this.

 

its also worthy to note one of andyorchs links

LAA no longer can force sale of a home

but they won't be able to do that anyway as the property is not owned by you so even if they go for a charging order

it would only be a restriction K which in all effects to them is useless

 

either set the whole thing aside by an N244 or stick in a N245 and vary the amount to <£5PCM 

they cant get blood out of a stone.

Personally I think your wife’s disability will back them right off. 

 

Trying to take a disabled woman’s flat off her in the middle of the worst public health and economic crisis in a Century? I don’t think so.

 

We aren’t living in the times of Oliver Twist. Ring your GP this morning, get a note written.

 

Take a copy and send it by post , not by email with an explainer. I went into some very very specific details about my wife’s medications, and side effects. 
 

Didn’t take long for Tax Credits to back off a 5 figure demand. I’m guessing the LAA won’t be much different.

well p'haps that's the route cause of why this mess seems so overwhelming to you.....

the very bottom line is they can't get blood out of a stone.

 

it's was a county court..a civil court matter..that means whatever you did 'wrong' it's not a criminal matter...

with a costs contribution this high, I would suggest it dragged and dragged on and could have been handled better..esp regarding what the judge said upon 'having no option' but to sentence you..and suspended it..which to all intent..cant hurt you at all unless you are stupid..

 

them enforcing the costs order has very limited options..a CO will be of no use to them as you don't own the property so its very safe...

just offer a silly low £PCM amount as I said. stuff and all they can do..and your partners health might even wipe it out totally.

n244 (and use the ex160 form ..at zero cost to you) ??

Then perhaps get your wife to make a phone GP appointment?  She can then have a confidential conversation about what's going on with her GP, and they will write the appropriate letter.

Resources to be treated as the individual’s resources

4.—(1) Where an individual has a partner—

(a)in calculating the financial resources of the individual, the Director must treat the financial resources of the partner as the individual’s financial resources; and

(b)any reference in these Regulations to the financial resources, financial circumstances, income or capital of the individual includes a reference to the financial resources, financial circumstances, income or capital of the individual’s partner,

unless the partner has a contrary interest in the proceedings.

 

http://www.legislation.gov.uk/uksi/2013/483/regulation/4/made

 

What about the situation where a wife owns assets that are sought to be recovered against the husband? A question that many a defendant asks is: ‘How can my wife protect her assets from confiscation?’
