    • Are you sure they are based in the EU?  I ask because a lot of e-gambling operations in the UK are based in my birthplace of the Isle of Man which is not really in the EU.  (Also channel islands which I'm not sure whether EU or not)
    • Very true TJ with GP surgeries, varying patient service all around. It's time for surgeries who are covid nervous to start putting in place their procedures to avoid sending patients to A&E unnecessarily,  It compounds the problem of the  over stretched hospitals. I found out today self testing kits are being delivered to the NHS probably gradually and in certain places of need as you say.  Hopefully it's being rolled out nationally and staff will be confident they are being cared for so they can care for others.
    • Well, it will a limited half hour conversation tomorrow. But that will be it, mainly it's to definitely get clear in my head that I am entitled to a refund before sending the letter. Will feed back what I can though. Modified slightly below:-   Dear Sir/Madam,     On xx/xx/xx date I entered into a contract with you for windows – reference the signed quotation number xxxxxx The requirements were clearly laid out and specified in the signed quote attached to my e-mail of date xx/xx/xx. Despite that you eventually supplied items which did not tally with the agreed specification. I have, and am asserting now, the right to reject the goods under the Consumer Rights Act 2015.  You appear to be saying that because the goods supplied were "made-to-measure" that you are not obliged to accept my rejection and to refund me the price; as such you are refusing to comply with your statutory obligations. I have already tried to point out you that these goods were supplied not as agreed so in that respect they are defective. In any event I should also point out you that whatever the circumstances, even if you supply goods which are made to the agreed specification, if they are defective then I would be entitled to reject them. You are continuing to refuse to reimburse me and so I'm writing to inform you that if you do not make arrangements to collect the defective items and to refund me in full within 14 days then I shall issue proceedings against you in the County Court for full reimbursement, plus any expenses incurred as a result of your breach, plus interest plus my costs. Yours faithfully,       Tom Legerton
    • Brilliant thanks ! And absolutely, this would be more around 30 miles test-drive if it happened so I could test slow/fast roads.  It was all hypothetical and with the lockdown hopefully easing, I should be hopefully purchasing after the test-drive but should dealerships not open, the above would be my only option
    • what's the debt all about and who is chasing you? Egg / Barclaycard DC is RH what was your last payment date  or use date of the card and to whom? last payment approx 2010 (wrong date on previous post) have you moved since taking this card out YES and failed to update the debt owner of the move regardless of any time limits? Possibly Thanks for responding and your help

Lowell Claim Form - Vodafone Debt


Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I defaulted on a Vodafone contract, the default date is 31/07/2015, the amount at that date was approximately £650 now nearly £800.

 

Lowell Portfolio 1 Ltd now have the debt and it was passed on to Lowell Solicitors who have sent me a "Notice of Claim Issue" on the 31/08/2020, this letter was sent after the claim form 25/08/2020.

 

I called Lowell, asked for proof of the agreement, they were rude saying a CCJ will be entered against me that day or the next

not knowing I filled out the online claim form, I put the phone down. I was then sent a "Notice of pending County Court Judgment (CCJ)" on the 13/09/2020.

 

I think I made a mistake with the online form, I did not admit to the claim but I ticked the jurisdiction box, can that be undone?

 

I added my claim yesterday by checking through recent claims from this forum. I'm now at the point where I'm being asked if I want to counter claim, do I wait? Also I have not sent CPR 31.14 letter yet as I can not find a template on here or know how to send payment of £1.

 

Please help.

Do not counter claim.......You need to submit a defence by 4.00pm tomorrow Fri 25th....otherwise they may get a default judgment because you didnt acknowledge service of the claim by 11th Sept...there are plenty of example mobile account defences in the Legal Success forum.

 

https://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/129-legal-successes/

 

Post here your intended defence for checking before submitting on MCOL.

Defence

 

1. Paragraph 1 is noted. I have in the past had a contractual relationship with Vodafone however I do not recall the exact details or recall any outstanding balance and have requested that the claimant verify the exact details of this claim by way of a CPR 31.14 request. The claimant has yet to comply.

 

2. Paragraph 2 is also noted  but denied. The amount claimed could not possibly consist of simple monthly usage.

 

3. Paragraph 3 is noted .It is questionable why the claimant has waited 5 years to litigate on an assigned debt and then tries to claim section 69 interest from the date of assignment but then limits itself to just one year.

 

Therefore the Claimant is put to strict proof to:

(a) show how the Defendant has entered into an Agreement/Contract
(b) show and disclose evidence of the nature of breach and quantify any debt outstanding
(c) show how the Defendant has reached the amount claimed for
(d) show how the Claimant has the legal right, either under statute or equity to issue a claim

 

4. On the alternative, if the Claimant is an assignee of a debt, it is denied that the Claimant has the right to lay a claim due to contraventions of Section 136 of the Law of Property Act.

 

5.  As per Civil Procedure Rule 16.5(4), it is expected that the Claimant prove the allegation that the money is owed.

 

6. Notwithstanding the above should the alleged amount claimed include an early termination charge(s) amounting to the entire balance of the remaining contract, OFCOM guidance states that any Early Termination Charge that is made up of the entire balance of the remaining contract is unlikely to be fair as it fails to take into account the fact that the provider no longer has to provide and pay for their service. An Unfair Term and Condition governed by the Unfair terms in Consumer Contracts Regulations (UTCCR).

 

7. By reason of the facts and matters set out above, it is denied that the Claimant is entitled to the relief claimed or any relief.

Lowell Solicitors who have sent me a "Notice of Claim Issue" on the 31/08/2020, this letter was sent after the claim form 25/08/2020.

 

Pity you didnt address the above......and not used the standard intro.

 

The Defendant contends that the particulars of claim vague and are generic in nature. The Defendant accordingly sets out its case below and relies on CPR r 16.5 (3) in relation to any particular allegation to which a specific response has not been made.

1. The Claimant has not complied with paragraph 3 of the PAPDC (Pre Action Protocol) Failed to serve a letter of claim  pre claim pursuant to PAPDC changes of the 1st October 2017.It is respectfully requested that the court take this into consideration pursuant to 7.1 PAPDC.

well you should have registered here first and get it checked ...not just nick stuff hoping your version was correct and then ask for help..

but it can be addressed later.

 

the cpr needs to be sent by post 

don't ever give the fleecers an email address as lowells have a nasty habit of filing important documents they must produce 1 min before a deadline and using  cut and paste of other people stuff to make it look like yours...thus removing your chance to counter them. ssp on mobile debts.

 

the over riding good point is when challenged properly, lowells drop most mobile/telecoms claims as they never expect people to defend...as in 85% of all speculative robocourt court claims.

I didn't know I couldn't use the letter so I didn't think I would be accused of nicking anything, I thought it was a standard template and I did check through ever part of it and compare it to others. I didn't hope it was correct, I did the best I could do, I only found you yesterday.

 

Anyway, I will donate for the help, thanks.
