    • 'The bluff could be that they haven't filed it at the court by the earlier date, but they hope hope that I submit mine by the first deadline, which I have now done. Gives them a chance to look at my WS, make any changes to theirs and then actually use the later date to file their papers at the court, having had the benefit of looking at my WS     Who knows, these solicitors maybe me smarter poker players than we thinkk lol'     It seems that the claimant solicitors actually outsmarted me. They submitted the first Bundle before on the 1st deadline of 18 of January. I submitted the defence before that date as per court orders.   They then sneaked in the supplementary WS before the second deadline of 1st feb 2021, having benefited from covering any loopholes that I had of them in my defence WS.   So in the supplementary WS, they have produced the contract, they have said that any extra irrelevant signages in their initial set of exhibits were clerical errors and have produced a much tidier crisper WS . I wish I had not now submitted my defence by the 18th of jan 2021, but rather waited till the 1st of Feb 2021. 
    • Can I just suggest one thing   Ask them how the subframe broke and say you would like them to explain how changing a cv joint affects the sub frame   I'm not an expert but I've changed cv joints in the past and never needed to touch the subframe on a car   The axle itself might pass through the subframe but removing the cv joint usually just entails cracking the old one off with a split bar   I can't help but wonder if they've braced it against the subframe and that's why it's broken 
    • it wouldn't have gone to a (your?) local county court as you didn't reply to the claimform. northants bulk would have dealt with it as it was a default judgement.    
    • Thank you so much for the reply. I have tried to call the court (Torbay & Newton Abbot) but they are short staffed so cant answer ;-( Does the discharge mean it has been thrown out?   On the report is is just marked as the court date 10th December 2020 and under that Discharged. Thank you!
    • I need to repair the lead flashing on my side of a firewall on the roof of a Victorian terrace. It will involve hacking off the cement on my side, installing new lead and reapplying cement. Do I have to notify my neighbour under the party wall act before getting this work done? I was under the impression minor work was not notifiable. I would consider this minor work. From the party wall act:   "Some works on a party wall may be so minor that service of notice under the Act would be generally regarded as not necessary. Things like:  drilling into a party wall to fix plugs and screws for ordinary wall units or shelving  cutting into a party wall to add or replace recessed electric wiring and sockets  removing old plaster and replastering may all be too minor to require a notice under the Act."   The neighbour has got wind of what I am doing and has asked for written grantees that I will cover the cost of any impact on his side and is threatening to invoke the party wall act if I don't I don't want to write him a blank cheque as his side of the firewall is probably is as bad a condition as my side.

    • 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!

Hi Lateralus

 

Thanks for the link. Yes, i had seen it earlier and thought it might be a useful additional weapon in time. Sadly I think Lloyds and their solicitors are remarkably resilient to the utterings of the Judges and seem hell bent on a course of making things as difficult as possible for their loyal and long standing customers..........where did the idea of good customer relationships go to?

but the point is - no one is going to court - they talk about it, make all the right noises - but it won't get to court - i don't care which bank you are with - the idea is to get them to make an offer - so to that end - write them a nudge letter - and on this site i advise a nudge every 10 days until they make an offer - it can't hurt

it may help

so, why not give it a go.....

Hi Lateralus

 

I wasn't being dismissive of your advice; I have actually already written to the LTSB solicitors twice since receiving notice of the pre-trial review but as yet have received no repsonse - but i'll continue writing.......

Hi,

 

I am in Cambridge also and have just received Notice of Pre Trial Review, but mine is on July 30th - so guess I miss out on party in pub on the July 13th!

 

I'm a bit confused now as to what I need to do now. Any advice/comments gratefully received...

 

My claim is with Abbey and is for £750.

 

Congratulations to Oyster. :)

i'd go back and read oyster's thread - also these two - the nudging letters we talk about are on post 1 of each. When you have filed your AQ................

New---after 28 Days - Maybe No Aq!!!!!!!

when we talk about dg that's the solicitors - you just use abbey's but the idea is the same.

Exactly as lattie says.

 

Just keep sending them a nudge evey couple of weeks

 

I have a confession.... I got board sending then on plain white paper Started printing them off on bright ORANGE paper I thought I would add a little colour to their office.... You never know if they scan the Docs in the their Scanner might have had problem and kept it to the to an make an offer to get rid of it from their Pile ..... Probably not advisable but it did put a smile on my face:D when I Posted It.

Hi Oyster - I've been away from the boards a little while, but it seems that you might be skipping the party in the pub on the 13th!

I would like to express my dissatisfaction with my local County Court in dealing with my claim against HSB. HSBC notified that they would be defending my claim and subsequently, AQ's were sent to both parties, with instructions to be filed by April 10th. Yes, you have guessed correctly! HSBC did not have their AQ filed by this time. The District Judge was most gracious in granting them until May 10th to file. I am still awaiting further information from the County Court, but I suspect that this deadline has also been ignored. Any advice would be most welcome, particular following on from this morning's broadcast on GMTV!

Hi Peeps

I'd just write to the court and say

Please note that in reference to the case of xxxxxx vs HSBC Bank, Plc, claim number: xxxxxxxxxx. This case has reached a satisfactory conclusion. Thank you for your assistance. Please consider this case closed.

Sincerely

 

 

And - please, pretty please - can you take a look at this page:

Litigation Section - View and print out litigation spreadsheets here

 

it is very, very important to people who have to prepare court bundles to have the information from this page - so please fill it in - letting a moderator know of your details - username, bank, claim date, claim figure, settled date. that's it but it really needs to be done to help others.

thanks - ask others who've won to do likewise.
