What a wonderful site this is. I have been able to find everything I needed, my case has reached the court bundle stage without a hitch except, am I correct not to include the goodwill offer letter in my bundle as it contains "without prejudise".:)

Hi,

 

I started my claim end of Oct 06 and I'm currently awaiting a court date !!!

My local court verbally advised that my case was with the judge and a court date should be set soon !!

 

I expect to have to go to court and obviously have the defence, QA and details of my charges - is there anything else I would need to take on the day ? (if it does get to court)

 

Thank you

I presume you are aware that you will have to prepare a court bundle in triplicate,one for the court, one for the solicitors and one for you.Dont worry you can find everything you need on this site.

Hi persian

 

Without prejudice letters should not be included in a bundle - nor letters that were a direct response to these.

Hi Jonni,When I got the stupid offer, I didn't know without prejudise meant I couldnt show it to the court, anyway the court has a copy of the letter and a copy of my refusal, I hope the court will exuse me, I wont put it in the bundle,but I might take it along just in case.

My claim has been filed and allocated to the small claims track.

Each party shall deliver to every other party all documents ( including any experts report) no later than 14 days before the hearing.What expert can I quote from?

You need not be concerned are experts, this is just something that the court include (note it is in brackets) it covers for when experts are appointed, which they usually are not with these bank charge claims.

 

Are you okay with preparing your bundle and when does it need to be in by?

Hi, Persian

 

Don't worry about he expert's report. With any luck, you didn't tick 'yes' to 'are you calling any expert witnesses', coz you aren't!

 

All the info you need is in the court bundle, which you can find here (http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/bank-templates-library/33060-basic-court-bundle.html).

 

Scroll down to the bottom of Bookworm's frame and you'll see it as a zip-file download. click it and - hey presto! - it will download onto your computer. You will then have the unbounded joy of printing off three copies - one each for you, them and the court.

 

BUT - don't do the printing just yet. Famliarise yourself with the contents - the case law is especially groovy - and identify and highlight the bits you may wish to use.

 

What will you use it for?

 

Probably to help other people on this site, because the chances of you actually going to court are pretty low. But it's nice to know your stuff, anyway.

 

Other bits you may wish to include in your bundle file are Sir Fred Goodwins evidence to the House select Committee and a transcript of Peter McNamara on the Money Programme. They're both around somewhere.

 

Hope that helps

Hi Westy - yours is a bit of a story, must be bedtime - making me sleepy....

 

When I feel like it I can get carried away, I go on forever too, in particular when I am having a go at someone who clearly has not read the FAQ or when they use template letters from elsewhere, because they say they are better.

 

Anyway, I look forward to some missives from you on my NatWest thread that you are keeping an eye on for me.

Thanks both of you, I do not have a scanner and was too lazy to photo copy A/Q, I am certain I didn't tick the box, and probably worrying over nothing. I am going to have to fork out for a scanner tomorrow, 10p a photo copy soon mounts up, not to mention I'll be there till next year.

I'm buying a scanner tomorrow to complete my bundle, has to be in by 14 March,should have it ready and posted by Tuesday

I would also advise you complete a Witness Statement - examples can be found HERE

 

Don't worry about references in the posts to the Draft Order - just concentrate on the Witness Statement examples.

Hi, Shell

 

A CPR Part 18 request is not normal in the Small Claims Court.

 

How much are you claiming? What's happened in your claim so far?

You can if you like, but they wont answer any questions.Only the court can make you/them answer cpr 18,so unless the judge orders you or them to do so you'd be wasting your time in my opinion.If you followed the advise given by CAG in you POC you have already asked for disclosure and that should be enough. Get your court bundle ready and send it off, that'll show them your prepared, settlement cheque will follow, maybe even before you submit your bundle, lots of media coverage on unfair bank charges right now.I understand banks are settling quicker.Good luck.

Hi, Persian

 

You're right in a way - rather than answer questions, they will settle.

 

A CPR Part 18 request is not only possible, it is essential in fast track and multitrack - there's no getting away from it there. Hence I asked what size the claim is.

 

The court ordered disclosure by March 9 in my case: I sent a CPR Part 18 request on the 7th Feb, with a deadline of 21 Feb. It was on that very day that I got my cheque - so definitely not a waste of time, in my opinion.

 

But I agree about preparing the bundle. If they hadn't settle that the order application may not have made it through before the disclosure deadline. Just shows - I should have sent it earlier!!
