Shocking they'd be so lenient. Please keep us posted.

Yes I have to agree with Bankfodder...your particulars are far too much in depth...plus you will be restricted to 1080 characters anyway... It will form the basis of your witness statement further int

Thank you for your reassurance Andy, I am lost for words on how this Venue has behaved to date, they are just greedy and do not care at all about the Bride, groom or parents and what we have had to do

Hi Andy and BankFodder this is the AQ notification and Date of Hearing, we would be obliged if we can be advised further and in particular for our costs in litigation due to the unreasonable behaviour of the Defendants and their defence to date.

We are particularly concerned that they have mislead the truth in their defence to the Court stating we agreed to a reduced number of guests to change the contract, for 8/10/20 and also stated we cancelled this date, both facts which are concerning as the contract was accepted and confirmed as Frustrated since May 23 2020, we were merely postponing as they refused to refund us, so we had been told "NO REFUNDS - POSTPONE"

 

They are trying their luck and this is one of the most disgraceful companies we have dealt with to date in our concerns, while we have been members in the Forum, please families and couples note, this thread before they book this venue they are not ones to be trusted or relied on for a service, then they will charge you for the privilege of not providing you anything but lies and excuses.

Thank you Andy I am so frustrated as we have no money and have had to borrow to pay for my daughters wedding last year and still in the situation created by Goosedale, where we are paying back a loan to cover the small wedding event, when they should have refunded this last year, we are so disappointed how they have behaved.

 

Thank you for your assistance, as soon as I can recover the money I will of course make a donation to the Forum as your help and support has been much appreciated.

Hi Andy this is a copy of their DQ which they sent to us by recorded deliver but did not post up on the Court until the unless order, we can confirm that we have not still received the Court copy of the DQ or if they have changed the solicitors or indeed if Mr XXXXX is still defending the claim in person so we are not sure.

Not to worry...I thought you had received a further DQ re Unless Order.

 

Going back to the N157...obviously this will now be a remote hearing by way of teleconference. Not ideal but it is what it is and your Court has not offered you the opportunity to vary it....unlike most other cases on here.

 

The directions are straight forward and self explanatory...it is vital you file and serve on time as stated by the dates.

 

Witness statements are quite easy to draft but they must be in the correct format and compliance that the court require. Its a particularised version in your own words and account of the dispute in support of your particulars of claim. If you refer to a document within the statement you must mark it accordingly and that will become a numbered exhibit which you will attach to the statement and if numerous exhibits you prepare a legend sheet with them named and numbered.  That is your disclosure.

 

 

You will have to duplicate the above given there are two claimants.

 

Re Litigant in Person Costs .....this list must be prepared and served on the defendant not less than 2 days pre hearing.

 

With regards to costs see CPR 46 and 46.5

 

https://www.justice.gov.uk/courts/procedure-rules/civil/rules/part-46-costs-special-cases#46.5

 

And CPR 27.14 given this is Small Claims Track.

further clarification of the law by a law firm:

 

https://www.fsp-law.com/to-have-and-to-hold-cma-issues-guidance-for-the-wedding-industry/

 

These Venues are so deluded they have no regard for their customers or any of the brides and grooms who have given them their life savings for a special day, instead they have become greed ridden and have interpreted the law to suit their own affairs, given that the Government has given and supported these venues with Tax payers money while including Furlough support; they really have been taking the money on both sides of the coin and then providing nothing to their customers this is against the CMA guidance and the law of Frustrated Contracts.

 

The Irony is they have accepted the contracts are frustrated but they wish to keep hold of funds to which they have not provided any service for, technically this is theft and the sooner the CMA takes action the better.

Please can the Forum also confirm the following as I can not seem to understand how the Defendant proposes to keep funds we have given them on the basis:

 

  1. The contract was Frustrated due to covid restrictions in May 2020, and accepted by them as such, hence the proposed new dates which we had been told we must accept failing which there will be no refund.
  2. The Contract has no variation clauses, which we have agreed to or can be agreed to as the venue was hired for 350 guests and they have stated a revised contract was agreed, this is a lie, hence we are concerned they are trying to confuse the Court with claiming they are entitled to keep 80% of the whole payment of £7700, which is again against CMA guidelines.
  3. In the alternative they are arguing that we have a Frustrated contract but we owe them money and this amounts to 30% of the whole amount due, it seem they wish to rely on the claim of Bijou, however they have not provided any bespoke or relevant or indeed any service to us, in addition this is again against the CMA guidelines.

I can confirm that our witness statement will be completed together with all the above information and together with a letter from the Defendants and their emails and our letters before claim, as we have serious concerns that the defence is misleading the Court.

 

We can confirm that we have spent Hours dealing with this matter to date, since the start of the claim and we understand that, we have incurred additional costs of pursuing a claim which should have been settled at the point when we issued the Letter before Claim, at at the time the Defendant refused to issue the refund based on his own interpretation of the facts and law dated 23 September 2020.

 

We will of course be approaching the press once this matter has been through the Court as there are hundreds of other people who have been left in the same situation and venues like these and the legal advisors have just become greedy and have tried to hold on to funds which the CMA has confirmed they are not and never have been entitled to.

 

I await the good advice of the Forum and can confirm that I am grateful for the advices given to allow the matter to reach this crucial stage before I approach the National and local press in this matter.
