    • They've estimated 10 years to agree a trade deal haven't they, UB? I think the Tories believed Trump when he said the UK would be at the front of the queue and have a quick trade deal and thought it would look good as an announcement after Brexit happened. It didn't dawn on them until quite late on that Donald might lose the election.   Why they ever thought US negotiators would do any favours is beyond me and now you see how other countries have asserted themselves over trade deals, the Tories global ambitions are starting to look naive.
    • It takes a long time to agree trade deals because there are so many aspects to consider.    UK companies trade with US consumers including US Government every day of the year, with the previous trade arrangements still in place.   There is no hurry to agree a new trade deal. It takes thousands of civil servants in both Governments to go into every aspect and they just don't have the people available to do this work.    
    • Hi thanks so much for the update and all the information. I will get my reading glasses on and look at the claim info and court info.  I agree let’s proceed issuing a letter straight away.  I am happy to stump the fees for court and am confident we will win.  The police officer I have dealt with has secured further CCTV evidence which I will ask a solicitor friend to get hold of from the Hermes parcel shop should we need any further evidence the parcel was dropped and collected.  Once I have read all the pages on here I will start putting the letter together and post on here for further advice.  thanks again,  mark 
    • The reason that I have indicated that it is the seller who should bring an action against Hermes is not because they are the seller – but because they are the person who suffered the loss. If you haven't suffered a loss then you probably don't have the status – locus standi – to bring a court action. Of course there is a slight problem that you didn't enter into the contract with Hermes – the purchaser did. Until 1999 this would have been a problem and would have prevented you from bringing any kind of action at all – at least on the basis of contract. However, since 1999, the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act gives the beneficiary of any contract full third party rights as if they were a contracting party. The only exception to this is that if the contract specifically excluded non-contracting parties – and I'm not aware that Hermes has yet amended their contract to try and prevent this. Of course as usual, Hermes will make a big point about the fact that no insurance was purchased. Hopefully you have been reading around the threads on this sub- forum and you have seen that our view is that it is completely unfair and in fact it is absurd to require a customer to pay money to protect Hermes or any other service provider from the consequences of their own negligence or the criminality of their own employees. Every time this point has been raised with Hermes in mediation, Hermes have settled and we consider that it is because they want to avoid going to court to get a definitive judgement that their insurance scam – is precisely that – a scam. On the basis of what I understand here, this is more than just negligence there is criminality and your bike has been stolen. You've already begun a complaint and you have been knocked back and so I think there's no point in mucking around and I think that you should simply issue a letter of claim to Hermes giving them 14 days to settle in full or else you will begin a court action. Make sure that you have read around the forum about taking a small claim in the County Court. It's very easy but you need to be aware of the steps. If you send the letter of claim, then don't expect that they are suddenly going to refund you your money. They won't. They will force you to issue the court papers and who will then force you to pay the hearing fee. At this point, they will opt for mediation and they will try to knock you down and get your compromise in your claim. You should stand your ground and refused to compromise even a single penny. We will help you all the way. You seem to be a seller and a purchaser here who are getting on very well together and so as you are motivated by a common purpose, you may want to get an agreement where you decide to share the fees of court action – which won't be very much. I haven't checked the court fees for this value claim – but I expect that the whole thing will be only about £120. Of course you will get that back when you win – but bear in mind there is a is a slight risk factor and that means that £120 would be the extent of your risk and would be the maximum that you would lose. It is inconceivable that you would lose. You should be claiming the cost of the bike, the cost of delivery, plus interest which is presently 8% – a very good rate in today's economic climate. Of course you will also claim back your court fees. If you want to proceed then please let us know and let us know also that you have read around the stories and also the steps involved taking a small claim in the County Court and that you understand what you are doing. If you do your basic reading over the next couple of days then we can help you draft a letter of claim on Sunday and you can send it off on Monday. I would recommend that you post your draft letter of claim on this forum so we can check it. Keep it short and to the point.
    • That's what keeps divorce lawyers and mediators in work, I suppose. You think he's being unreasonable and he thinks you are.   My gut feeling is that it would be better to have this agreed in writing so it can't be challenged later, but that's just my opinion. Here's more information from the CAB in case it covers something you haven't already considered.   HB

    • 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!

Erudio/ Drydens Fairfax CCJ - Advice Please - N244 Case March 2021


Recommended Posts

Hi All, 

 

I was hoping you may be able to assist with the dreaded Erudio. 

 

* November 2020 - a letter out of the blue from Dryden Fairfax - advising there is a warrant of control order to my address for a CCJ issued to my old address in July 2019. 

  Nothing on my credit file during this period - and we have been living at this property since August 2018.  All of my addresses are on my credit files. 

 

* Contacted DF, the Courts and Erudio.  I had recently applied to SLC for a masters loan which was approved in August 2020. 

 

* Contacted SLC following the letter advising warrant of control - Nothing on their file last deferment 2011. Contacted Erudio - the operative said they had nothing on their system for me. 

 

* I am trying to collate the details but remembering paying a DCA - a largish amount at my old property to pay off the loans in total. I believe around 2015/2016. 

 

The amount DF/ Erudio are nowchasing is around £2600 total. 

 

* I never received a notice of assignment as it was sent to a previous address, I had been making payments to Student Loan Company - I never agreed to any dd or signed anything with Erudio. 

 

 I had my first baby in Dec 2012 - so was out of touch that SLC had sold to Erudio. Erudio  paperwork looked so unprofessional I actually though that they were a scam company!!  My surname spelt incorrectly, random numbers I had never seen before on the paperwork. 

 

*  I have now applied to the courts and paid £255 for an application to set aside, on the basis that throughout the whole period my email address has remained the same and I had already moved 2 years previous to the CCJ being issued. I thought I had paid a deal to close the debt I had not remained in contact with SLC, Erudio or anyone else on this matter. 

 

I have results of the DSAR from Drydens Fairfax, Erudio, Student Loans Company, I have yet to request Honours Student Loans. I had 4 loans in total starting in 1998. 

 

If the money is genuinely still owed I am happy to come to a settlement with Erudio as I do not want a CCJ on my record.

 

I sent many requests to DF within the 2 week period before I applied to the courts for an N244 - I was hoping they would agree to set aside by mutual consent, but there was radio silence from them until they were notified I assume by the court for the N244 hearing. 

 

Do you have any advice for me? Much appreciated...

ok you'd posted in the scottish forum but i've moved it now.

 

your story is very confusing if you blindly paid a powerless DCA everything off in 2015/16 and you were already paying SLC.

 

you say you have SLC SAR so can you please get your story in order.

if this bit is true then unless you deferred to erudio or you paid someone something regarding this loan, it was already statute barred as with 99% of erudio slc ccj's

 

have you the particulars of claim?

erudio didn't buy HSL loans so can't be anything to do with them.

 

if i correctly read between the lines, i bet you paid Link (Thesis) for whichever was an HSL loan as they bought those a few years before the erudio deal and Link scammed 10'000 of people out of money they never owed

Hi,

Really sorry if my first post did not make sense! 

I was in the middle of uploading school work - aggh! 

Yes you are correct 

 

I paid a company it could be Link, I'm trying to locate the payment and info.

 -I thought SLC had changed to HSL - and I was clearing the balance. 

I will upload the SLC DSAR and Particulars of the claim now. 

Thank you for your interest.

and ask them to read out the address on it and the Particulars of claim exactly as written.

Hi, 

I've had some issues uploading and redacting this - due to file types etc.. I've blanked out the first 10 pages. 

There is a contents list - so let me know which areas you need to look at. 

 

Many thanks 

 

Edited by owk
IWhen I opened it on your site - the redacting was not there - will try again.

any useful data...we need to prove you didn't defer past 2013 nor paid anything in the period of 6yrs before the claimform date issuance.

so you can file your claim of sb'd.

 

certainly not obv a contents list 

 

redact as JPG files then convert the lot to one multipage pdf

our upload guide is useful too follow as are using the various online websites it points too like pdfruducer and pdfmerger.

So from that poc you have the slc loan numbers

And from earlier you stated slc told you no deferment since 2011 so the debt was easily statute barred by the time of the claimform

 

What did you put on your n244 please?

and when have you got to make the next move on the set aside?

don't think you need to put any of that bar the 1st preamble

you simply state that the last deferment thus contact by me upon these loans rolled into one claim by Erudio was 2011 directly to SLC.

 

as a period of 6yrs had already expired by the time of the issuance of the claim form, the debts were already statute barred.

 

there is no need for you to explain why you didn't getthe claimform

 

you also need to add you want the claimant to pay you N244 fee and expenses,

 

..................

 

since discoveringt his info now in B/W have you rung Drydens and asked if they will set aside and refund your fee without the need to continue?

I'm not sure that the person I spoke to at SLC was correct regarding the last deferment being 2011. I can see further payments.

 

I think I can see payments following on from that - I continued to pay what I thought was SLC company until 2015.

 

This I now think was Honours SLC, not SLC or Erudio.  Now I understand my 1st 1998 loan was transferred to Honours yet the other three were with SLC. 

 

I know 100% I negotiated a deal with a DCA  to clear loan outstanding.  

 

I've been searching old documents today, contacted Honours Student Loans to find proof of the payment to close the loan. 

 

 Someone from Link Financial called me back straightaway,  - so I'm now really worried I've opened a whole new can of worms.

 

They were really pushy for my info... I did not give them anything although now worryingly they have my number. Can they even try and go back on this...? 

 

The only payment I can see to ever to Erudio was end of March 2014, under ESL limited.. which was taken without my knowledge using SLC  DD details. 

 

I remember thinking it was a scam - so contacted my bank but I had noticed it after the payment had gone out.

 

I think by the time I had seen it the Bank  couldn't reverse it but all further payments were stopped, and I remember the bank even being really confused and saying it should not have happened. 

 

I must have made contact with Erudio at this point - but there is nothing on their account files. There are notes - saying "surpress DAF request." 

 

 Erudio ( accoording to their own SAR)   sent a  Notice of Assignment had been sent the previous Autumn to my old address, which I never saw or received. 

 

I'm looking at my address history and I was really conscientious with informing SLC - there is even a note 2 days after we moved house in 2013 and also when I changed my name to get married.

 

I'm adamant the Notice of Assignment was either not sent or sent to an old property, I also can't see why I would have made contact with SLC a few days after we bought a new house in 2013 - if it was not to inform them I had moved?

woe slow going down you are going down the wrong worm hole....

the HSL/Link/Thesis details or payments/info are nothing whatsoever to do or have any baring toward other slc loans. forget them.

 

when was the last time you deferred or paid on the loans listed in the POC to SLC ...

thats the only thing you need to prove.
