I took Halifax to court on the 21/11, they acknowledged my claim and requested the extra 14 days to file a defence which takes us up to Christmas-bloody-Day!

 

So, will they actually file a defence before this date or will they just pay up before then in to my bank a/c?

 

What happens if they file a defence? I presume it goes to court? Has any cases gone to court?

 

If they do not file any defence I can request a Judgement when the courts open again after Boxing Day??

 

Questions, questions, I am SO skint, that money would be so handy right now!

Hi Bradders,

Now Calm down!!!

I filed on 23rd so I'm in similar position. Just sit back and relax. here's the timetable.

1) They have 14 days in which to enter a defence. If they do you will receive a court allocation questionnaire which you complete within 14 days. You have to send another £100 which you will of course get back with your claim. However there is every chance they won't get a defence together in time.

2) I've just discovered that there's every chance that the standard practice is to send you a letter of settlement on the Wednesday of the week following the acknowledgment.

3) If this doesn't happen and they fail to defend within the 14 days, you must firat send them a letter giving them a further 7 days before you file for a judgement, otherwise they can ask for a set aside which will delay your claim by several weeks.

4) in the event that they defend, after you need to start to prepare for court and look on the site for the court bundle etc.

 

Hope this helps, send my a private message if you need any more detailed help.

Regards,

David

So some have actually gone to court then?

 

Their seems no ryhme or reason to Halifax, some ppl get full settlements without it going to court and some get full amount after filing claim, some defend... Some don't! Arrrgh!

 

Thanks though.

Bradders I also filed on 21st Nov, deemed served 26th Nov. Halifax acknowledged the claim on the 1st Dec then today I got a letter from them offering me full settlement!

 

Hopefully you'll get yours soon.

 

Have you checked your bank account as some people seem to get the money paid in before they get the letter from Halifax.

 

Good luck

I don't know yet if the moneys in the account, my anti virus software won't let me log onto Halifax as it says there's phishing going on their! LOL

 

The letter they've sent me says to allow up to 5 days for the money to reach the account so I'm not contacting the court until I've actually got the money.

 

I would have thought you should hear soon.

Bradders 33,

You have to assume you might go to court. When you make a claim there is always a chance that it could be defended. Remember they have a legal department looking for any loopholes to get out of paying. They will weigh up the size of claim and the case against them. Occasionally it will get to the stage of going to court before they pay up. The other thing to remember is a precedent cannot be set in a small claims court although they will be weary that a judge may order the case to go to a higher court to be heard. They will not want a test case in a higher court.

You shouldn't concern yourself too much about going to court but everyone must remember it is a possibility. I have already prepared my court bundle just in case.....

Well, we treated ourselves yesterday, bought some nice things for the house and went out for a lovely meal. The rest will be spent on things worthwhile... I was grinning like a Cheshire Cat all day yesterday! :D
