    • Hi there I was hoping for some advice.   Last year I hired a kitchen fitter to fit my kitchen. I paid him £100 deposit and he began the work. I left the country on holiday and my dad was unhappy with the quality. He’d rushed and some screws had left marks on the other side of the wood, he’d put some draw runners in upside down and in the wrong place. My dad asked him to assemble a drawer as proof of skill. The fitter did this and then declined to continue the job, citing humiliation / embarrassment and not wanting to continue. At this point they had assembled half of the carcasses (kitchen units) in half a day and left.   He said he wanted a further £150 to match his day rate for the work he did and as per his T&C’s (see below). I’ve refused on the grounds of insufficient care and skill.   This is now going to mediation with the possibility of it going further. He claims if it goes further he will go for the full amount of the job as per T&C’s of a further £850. I feel £100 is a fair amount for the work he did and don’t want to pay anymore.   Furthermore, our initial conversation over Facebook he stated the job would be “£950. £850 if the carcasses don’t need doing” this would suggest, to me anyway, that he values the carcasses being made is worth £100, which he has been paid, even though he and his employee did half.   Where would this likely go if it couldn’t be solved with mediation?   What is the likelihood this would be ruled in my favour?   And how much chance does he have of getting a further £850 for one days work after initially asking for £150?!   His T&C’s do state that “if work is then fully stopped due to a disagreement no deposit will be refunded and seek £250 for the stop of work” is that even legal? As well as his suggestion the work done was worth £100   Thanks in advance.

    • Yes, to CEL, using snail mail again, again getting a free Certificate of Posting.  How about something like:   "Dear Ashley,   Re: PCN no. XXXXX   cheers for your LBA.   If you'd bothered to look at the photos of the vehicle in question you'd have seen the registration number is XXXXX.  I have never owned or driven such a vehicle.   The £9.99 ANPR cameras you buy second hand on eBay have confused this registration number with my vehicle XXXXX and as you're too bone idle to do any checking my time has been wasted sorting out your incompetence.   If you want to take me to court regarding a vehicle you know full well isn't even mine then fine, go for it, I'll enjoy thrashing you and claiming unreasonable behaviour costs under CPR27.14(2)(g)".   However, hang on for 24 hours to see what others think, there are Caggers who have years & years of experience with CEL.
    • Yes, I cancelled it in my mobile banking App.   Thanks
    • Thank you, I agree there should have been an application sent out.  It might be in the post but this is too late, technically court should be communicating by email now.   I will have to email the court as phone line is not an option.

    • 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

Issue is they failed to file defence after doing AOS.  What way is there round that one without spending more than paying the Judgment off?  We know the POC would be pants and defensible.

the letter i received doesn't give any account details to whom payment should be made, or how to pay e.g. via phone , card etc

 

just says payment should be made to the person named at the address for payment, giving claimants reference and claim number

 

gutted, 

 

just came across this article from January 2020

i can't believe i misinterpreted / misread the  court documents i received.

 

i always thought the AOS was all i had to submit, until i received a court date and that i would have to file defence then.

Once the ccj is paid and out the way can a private charge be made against them for perhaps breach of GDPR p  and claim money from VCS and get their own back that way.

That doesnt prevent you from applying for a set aside, it just states why the judgement has been made.

A set aside WILL be granted as long as you have a chance of winning and that chance doesn't have to be overwhelming.

 

I got a default judgement against a courier co and they asked for a set aside using entirely fictitious grounds so I contested it.

DJ Spanton a Hastings CC told me and the lawyer for the couriers that due to a High Court appeal decision all set asides SHALL be granted except in very limited circumstances and telling lies as to why they hadn't dealt with the claim wasn't one of those exceptions.

 

This was just over a year ago

What about the matter of costs EB?  The set aside would cost the OP £255, whereas the judgement is "only" for £185.

Should get them back if they win,  Its in the press about the issues at that place and VCS had a spanking over it, its OP's gamble.

i don't want to make any more mistakes , as i am not really familiar with legal stuff. and cannot really afford to lose any more money, so i just decided to cough up and take this as a learning experience ,

if i come across anything like this again , i will hopefully have some idea as to how to deal with it.

 

thanks to everyone who gave their time and helped

Seconded.  Just learn from the experience for the next time and make sure this is the last money you ever give these sharks.
