    • Yes, but they definitely haven't supplied you with any data relating to that account?

    • How do I transfer my post to the correct topic I think I posted this wrongly and am not in the right section  Sorry about this
    • Hi everyone,  Recently I did a financial statement for the CAB and it turns out that I have been overpaying my rent by £48 per month for at least 5 years.  I am on Housing benefit and have been paying £100 per month to cover the short fall in the benefit payment. I contacted my letting agent querying this and was told that my account is showing that I am just current in the amount I owe, not showing a credit balance as my calculations seem to show. My rent is                £700 per calendar month  or          £8400 per year Housing benefit     £594.08 x13 - 4 weekly payment   £7723.04 per year My top up                £100 x12 calendar month              £1200 per year                                                                                              £523.04 over payment per year   I think the maths is correct and I think this situation arose because a one point we were in rent arrears of about £1000 and agreed to clear the arrears by paying £100 a month rather than the £52 needed to cover the HB shortfall. We have continued to pay the £100 per month since that date.    My question is how do I go about getting a break down of all payments to my agent and what to do if they refuse to cooperate.   Thanks in advance  Gary44

    • 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!

need advice of how I can stop a co-habiting ex-partner from threatening to kick me out my own home.


Recommended Posts

 A county court claim was issued just over six years ago.

 

A hand written letter was provided by the Defendant that the  Particulars of the Claim would Not be contested and that full disclosure would be made within 14 days.  It was not.

 

The Claimant was subsequently duped into stalling and considered to have been systematically manipulated by Medical Professionals so the Defendant could possibly avoid liability.

 

Can the original claim with the hand written letter of admission still be used to obtain a County Court Order or Judgement?

if the claimant just left the claim and did not progress it once filed ,  then its dead and the debt is almost undoubtedly now statute barred.

 

the letter was not one of admittance of the debt, so resets nothing.

 

if they did get a default judgement but have failed to enforce it within the 6yrs since default judgement then its near impossible to enforce , but it doesn't appear so as you mention 'obtain a CCJ'  so thus one cannot exist.

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

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...

Thank you for responding and confirming what I thought may be the case but suppose just didn't want to hear.

 

I now need advice of how I can stop a co-habiting ex-partner from threatening to kick me out my own home even though they left three years ago but it remained in their sole name with a mortgage in their sole name but I which I pay from my account along with all bills and provided the deposit for.

 

I know I don't have home rights but  how do you prove "Beneficial Interest"?

Hi. Do you have any sort of legal agreement from when your ex left to say who would pay the mortgage?

 

Can you prove that you paid the deposit?

 

How are they trying to get you out of your home please?

  • dx100uk changed the title to need advice of how I can stop a co-habiting ex-partner from threatening to kick me out my own home.

yes you should have addressed this 3yrs ago...

it's not your home and to all intent and purpose for the last three years have been all but renting it by paying everything...poss for a quiet life which is understandable.

 

not my bag so i'll butt out now unless i can see my input helps.

@honeybee13 No but there were hand written letters to say it was all being handed over to me.

 

There is a legal agreement witnessed by a solicitor to say the deposit in the form of a loan  was provided by a company held in Trust for me. Which my ex should have registered a charge in favour of for but failed to.

 

The agreement also states that a share of the profits from the sale of the proceeds will be payable to the company.

 

@dx100uk 

Yes, thank you, hindsight is a wonderful thing.

But have long stand MH illness and was duped.
