    • Hi DK, i put in my defence that I wish to show a video entering the car park and pictures to show the T & C.  They are there but it would be dangerous to stop the car and read these as they are at the entrance to the car park you cannot safely walk down to them to read    There are no signs where the driver parked. And no T & C at the pay stations.  I believe no contract can be enforced because you cant read the T & C .  
    • I have this morning received from the County Court Business Centre a Notice of Proposed Allocation to the Small Claims Track. Should I do anything other than fill it in requesting my nearest County Court? Clearly I won't be requesting the mediation service.
    • It would be helpful if you could simply produce a skeleton – bullet pointed – chronology of your letter because it's rather a lot to go through. I do understand that you are asking for a refund of the entire cost of the works. If this is correct then I think that this is unachievable. Presumably some of the materials which have been supplied and some of the installation is useful and at the very least you would have to pay for those. The starting point here would be to get an independent inspection – maybe two independent inspections – of the quality of the work and to make a report as to the problems. You would then need a couple of independent quotations for the costs of repairing the defects to the standard which was expected when you first commissioned the work. If you could get loans, then we can take it further. The fact that the builder is not limited liability company is important to the extent that they are not able to phoenix themselves – meaning that they not able simply to go into liquidation and then reappear under a similar name but escaping their legal liabilities. On the other hand, if you find that you're going to have to you bring the claim then you are going to have to identify the builder – and any assets – and preferably any property that they owned. Can you do this? Also, it will be in your interest to keep this issue to a figure less than £10,000 in order to keep you within the small claims limits for County Court claims – otherwise you risk a fair amount of costs if you happen to lose the case
    • Thanks for opening SO,  nothing since May as you saw before I received a debt collection letter from a 3rd party.   As they got no response ON CHRISTMAS EVE I received  a new 'CLAIM FOR DEBT' containing a handy 'previous case notes' from a court appeal that went wrong. They include an affordability schedule, they have upped it to £182   They are sending the letter in accordance with Pre-action Protocol for Debt Claims (PAP) contained in the Civili Procedure Rules (CPR) You have 30 days to complete the enclosed or possibly face court acton.   'If you ignore this letter and fail to respond proceedings will be issued against you and may increase you liability for costs"   I can then tick a box saying A,B,C,D  etc.  I owe the debt, I owe some of the debt, I dispute the debt, I dont know i owe the debt,, I will pay buy need time, Im getting debt advice, I h ave provided docs,  i need more docs or info, sign and send back.   Ignore or respond?   Cheers!

    • Hi @BankFodder
      Sorry for only updating you now, but after your guidance with submitting the claim it was pretty straight forward and I didn't want to unnecessarily waste your time. Especially with this guide you wrote here, so many thanks for that
      So I issued the claim on day 15 and they requested more time to respond.
      They took until the last day to respond and denied the claim, unsurprisingly saying my contract was with Packlink and not with them.
       
      I opted for mediation, and it played out very similarly to other people's experiences.
       
      In the first call I outlined my case, and I referred to the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 as the reason to why I do in fact have a contract with them. 
       
      In the second call the mediator came back with an offer of the full amount of the phone and postage £146.93, but not the court costs. I said I was not willing to accept this and the mediator came across as a bit irritated that I would not accept this and said I should be flexible. I insisted that the law was on my side and I was willing to take them to court. The mediator went back to Hermes with what I said.
       
      In the third call the mediator said that they would offer the full amount. However, he said that Hermes still thought that I should have taken the case against Packlink instead, and that they would try to recover the court costs themselves from Packlink.
       
      To be fair to them, if Packlink wasn't based in Spain I would've made the claim against them instead. But since they are overseas and the law lets me take action against Hermes directly, it's the best way of trying to recover the money.
       
      So this is a great win. Thank you so much for your help and all of the resources available on this site. It has helped me so much especially as someone who does not know anything about making money claims.
       
      Many thanks, stay safe and have a good Christmas!

Non-Default - Full or Partial Settlement.


Recommended Posts

I would like some advice please.

 

Trying to resolve an issue friend has got, and  I'm a bit stumped.

They have a 12mth loan account June 2018, but have never paid a penny towards it for some reason.
As of today the Debt is not defaulted only shows as Missed Payments.

Not once have they been chased for the loan, there's no record of contact or letters within their DSAR relating to collections - it just seems that the account fell off the radar.

Now they are in a position to pay this debt in full, however they have spoken to the lender who has apologised about the lack of contact - and has stated they are prepared to reduce the amount owing by 20% (£450-ish) as a Partial Settlement.
They do have 2 x default markers on their CRA which will be updated to satisfied (?) as they both now have a zero balance and a loan which has no negative markers.

Should they take this offer of Partial Settlement - is there quite a negative impact to their CRA if they did, they are hoping to secure Car finance in the new year.

was the person in the red when applying for these loans?

 

ie was their credit file littered with defaults and payment markers for other lenders?

and did he have multiple other PDL's at the same time?

 

if so he might be able to raise and win an irresponsible lending claim that could see the balance reduced or even wiped, including any defaults.

 

it sort of puzzles me why they are so readily offering this GOGW when they've no need too..something smells??

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...

Thanks for reply.

AT time loan issued he was in debt for around £1.5k.
CRA's around time loan issued show that only 4 credit cards (2 went to default in jun 19) a Paypal Credit account and a ShopDirect - all within 20% of credit limit on each. (and Car Insurance paid mthly)
Since loan issued he took out a Everyday loan which has another 20mths to go, but has been paid on time without any missed or negative marker.
No defaults were ever recorded on his closed accounts.

Ah right.

So that could have a negative impact.

 

His 2 CC defaults are still with FOS for PPI so he's hoping they will be word clean.

 

As always thanks for your time
