    • Here's something I'm hoping to clarify before I get in trouble for it:   There is a street close to where I live that was transformed into a temporary Pedestrian and Cycle Zone due to a school that's there. I know I can't enter it during those times, but can I be fined for having my car parked on that street while the zone is active? So far I have only heard one interpretation, from my neighbour, who said you can have your car parked there and you can exit the zone while it is operational, oddly enough, but before I take her word for it I want to get some more opinions on the matter.   For reference, here is what the Council's own website states: "It is an offence to enter or drive in an active school Street without a valid school street permit." (emphasis mine) Would this prove my neighbour right or can they still find a different interpretation to it that would carry the risk of a fine if I park my car there?   The sign for the zone is very similar to the image attached below, only different operating times.   Edit: to clarify, there are permits you can apply for if you actually live on that street, but I'm just outside that area. Also, there are no other parking restriction on the road that would apply.  
    • good i can see where you got that from  pers i'd put back, suitable adapted the line:   3.Throughout this period XXX only ever served estimated bills which were grossly over estimated with values unrelated to actual use. There was and still remains an unresolved dispute with XXX which was never resolved prior to the assignment of the alleged debt.
    • Hi Mr S,   Read other threads here posted over the last year or so.   We pretty much advise the same thing - ignore demands from the gym, their admin company, any DCA they use and any legal firm they use.   No need to engage with the gym or admin company to discuss or argue your wish to cancel - it'll get you nowhere.   If you want to leave the gym now, just give a month's written notice then cancel the DD m,andate .   If you want to cancel from October 2021, confirm this to the gym in writing early October, allow the final DD to be taken in October, then cancel the DD mandate.   You'll see from other threads that no action is taken to claim money and gym m/ships do not affect your credit records.
    • Update on the situation:   Following the run in with the police he has actually gone to the police station himself to question what he was told and was told there is no issue with him idling or moving the car around the car park, so the police officers who told him that were wrong.   As a side note, he knows who it is that's reporting him. Seems to be a bit of a feud between them, but the clarification he got from the police should at least stop them coming around every time a report is made.   Thank you to everyone who replied to this question!
    • I have had another good look around but still struggled to find any templates. I did find a defence on a thread that I have adapted below. I would greatly appreciate some input before I file it. Again, many thanks in advance.   Defence   1. I the Defendant contends that the particulars of claim are vague and 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.   2. It is admitted that I have had a supply and service agreement with Co-operative Energy in the past. During the period, Co-operative Energy actively blocked me from hanging to a cheaper tariff or switching provider as there was an outstanding balance on the account.   3. Throughout this period Co-operative Energy served estimated bills. This is shown in the one copy of a bill that the claimant has been able to provide. The claimant has given no details as to the full breakdown of their claim and what dates it relates to, so I am unable to defend specifically until the claimant can particularise and quantify its pleadings.   4. Pursuant to OFGEM code of back billing rules the alleged charges are now over 12 months old and relate to charges which have not been billed correctly by Co-operative Energy and are therefore prevented from charging.   5. The claimant does not have access to the agreement nor was the Assignor required to retain a copy. Therefore their claim is unsubstantiated.   Pursuant to the civil procedure rules Practice Direction 16 (7.3) Where a claim is based upon a written agreement.   1) a copy of the contract or documents constituting the agreement,  the original(s) should be available at the hearing along with a complete breakdown of how the charges accrued by date and amount.   With the court’s permission the Claimant is put to strict proof to: -   a) show and disclose how the Defendant has entered into an agreement. b) show and disclose how the Claimant has reached the amount claimed. c) show how the Claimant has the legal right, either under statute or equity to issue a claim.   6. As per Civil Procedure Rule 16.5 (4) it is expected that the Claimant prove the allegation that the money is owed.   7. It is therefore denied that the defendant is indebted to the claimant as alleged or at all.

    • 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!

Cabot/MFS/Mortimer chasing 2008 CCJ/CO - property with CO was repo'd


Recommended Posts

Hi

 

not sure if this is in the right place.

 

I received a letter and a call from Mortimer Clarke regarding a debt for MFS Portfolio.

 

The debt is approximately £4k.

 

I wrote to them on numerous occasions asking for details and they never sent any.

 

Mortimer Clarke called me this morning and I had to prise the information from them -  the debt is for a scooter purchased in 2004.

 

They told me that a CCJ was obtained in 2008 and was registered as a charge on the house I lived in at the time.

 

In 2011 I got into financial difficulties and as a result the property was repossessed

I assume at that time that the purchaser would have been aware of the charge. 

 

Would a copy of the judgement they obtained in 2008 still be available. 

I got the feeling even though they don't have a copy of the judgement. 

I asked them to send me what they have and we agreed they would get back to me in a month. 

I told them I would be seeking advice on the matter.

 

There's nothing on my credit file relating to this or the reposession of the property.

shouldn't ever be talking to a dca or their wolves on the phone.

they'll say anything to con money out of you.

 

the charge is dead, and the CCJ is more than 6yrs old.

it would take a very unfair judge to allow further enforcement outside of 6yrs.

 

have you written the the debt owner from your present address?

  • dx100uk changed the title to MFS/Mortimer chasing 2008 CCJ/CO - property with CO was repo'd

I emailed them and Mortimer Clarke some time ago and they never responded. 

They have my current address. 

I have received their standard contact letter. 

 

The mortgage was with Kensington and the house was sold. 

There's no record of the reposession on my credit file either. 

 

When they get in touch should I ask them for the County Court case number so I can chase that up?

in what way have YOU communicated your correct address to either Kenny's or cabot (MFS/Mortimer as par of the Cabot Group) since your move?

yes but not officially, probably harvested from your credit file, which in a court of law is not deemed as a legal service address

Mortimer Clarke have emailed me a letter and attached

a copy of the original agreement signed on 29th June 2004 and

a reconstituted copy of the notice of assigment dated 30th November 2007.

The letter also states that the county court judgement was obtained on 6th March 2008.

 

Should I email them back and ask for the case number for the county court judgement? 

Will MFS Portfoli have to provide the court with a valid reason why enforcement of the judgement was not undertaken within the 6 year period and apply to the courts to have the judgment enforced.

 

Is there a standard letter I could reply to Mortimer Clarke with?

it is extremely rare for a judge to allow further enforcement on a CCJ outside of 6yrs .

 

I'd simply send them one further email stating.

your current and correct address.

stating that any further emails to xxxx from xxx will be blocked and bounced back unread and that all further communication needs to be sent by royal mail letter only.

if someone ever does appear

film them with your mobile phone

tell  them to leave your property and never return else you'll call police 101and send them the video.

do not engage 

 

they are not bailiffs 

and any DCA be them at your door, on the phone, via email or by letter

have ZERO legal powers on any debt no matter what it's type.
