No, they coughed up (ie settled out of court) last time.

 

Yep, I was reading up yesterday & it says that when you fill in the warrant of execution form, it's actually recommended that the address you nominate is an address at which they carry on business (ie a branch address) rather than the registered address, in case they don't have goods there that can be taken by the bailiffs.

 

I am looking forward to this one though. I'd like to see them appeal, their grounds won't exactly be very strong since they couldn't even be bothered to reply to my claim...

July 2007: Claim 2 for £307 WON! after quiet word from the bailiff!!

It is possible, yes. If you are really concerned, the best bet is to open a parachute account (ie another one with somebody else) - halifax are even given you £100 free when you open with them! You do need to be aware that Abbey could withdraw your overdraft etc, although to demand £1600 immediately would be somewhat unreasonable - if they tried that, you could ask to pay it back in instalments.

Steve - any news on this yet?

 

My case seems to be following yours in that I've had no response from Abbey with just a few days until the end of the 28 day period.

 

It will be interesting to see how your goes.

So I applied for a Warrant of Execution yesterday, and opened a parachute account for back-up incase Abbey close my account.

 

My claim was already in motion when the OFT Test Case was announced, judgement was entered without any defence entered.

 

Just want this thing over now so be intrestin to see what happens.:cool:

Try and get the date and time that the Baliffs will be going in and go along and watch the fun lol, hopefully they will settle at this stage, has the court sent out judgement? if so, what date did they send it? Have you rang the court to see if they have applied for a set aside?

:D Rec'd cheque from Abbey today for total amount £650 !!! I'd applied for a Warrant of Execution the day before but makemehabby payed up before the warrant was executed (have to write to the court now to let them know).

 

My claim was in progress before the OFT Test Case was announced. Judgement was entered on 10th August. Chq. rec'd on 31st. No application for claim to be set aside, or for a stay pending Test Case.

 

So if you're claims in progress, keep on movin'. They'll pay up (reluctantly) in the end.

 

Yay!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:D

 

Big thanks and donation to site on it's cyberspace way. Couldn't have done this without CAG.

 

It's such a relief to be over. Thanks Guys!!!

Nah. They didn't enter a defence at all, so judgement was entered automatically. I didn't even get a court date. They didn't reply to the claim at all. Have they responded to yours?

 

From the threads I've read on here Abbey settle out of court just before the court date. I think they're snowed under.

about a week. Then I waited 2 weeks before applying for a warrant. Don't think I needed the warrant tho as they sent the chq the same day I posted my warrant application.

 

Phone the court and ask how behind they are with judgements and they'll give you an idea of when it'll be entered. You can apply for a warrant immediately if you want but as I said in my case they paid up without it.

 

Not long now for you :D
