I have just received a letter from their solicitor putting a defence in to the court. Is this usual?

The defence says that the particulars of the claim disclose no reasonable cause of action and ought to be struck out pursuant to the provisions of the civil procedure rules part 3.4 and/or that summery judgement ought to be granted against the claimant pursuant to the civil procedure rules part 24.2 as the claimant has no real prospects of succeeding on the claim or issue and there is no other compelling reason why the case or issue ought to be disposed of at trial.

Any comments will be appreciated.

This sounds like them trying to intimidate you into dropping the case. Essentially their position is untenable and they cannot defend their charging policy. They would have to provide detailed calculations in court of their charging formula which will clearly show that they are applying punitive charges.

 

The solicitors can huff and bluff as much as they like, at the end of the day it is their opinion and interpretation of the rules and proceedures. It will be for a Judge to decide, not them and I think the Judges are sick of the banks wasting time. The solitors are just trying to scare you off by quoting this guff.

 

I would imagine that this letter has been sent for your benefit only. The next step will be the court sending the Allocation Questionaire. Details of how to fill this in are on the CAG templates library.

 

As to the solicitors letter, you have two options, ignore it or answer it. If you are going to answer it, I would confine yourself to thanking them for their letter and reiterate your claim. Do not get into a war of words. You do not want to disclose any of your legal arguments etc until you have to.

 

So DONT WORRY STICK TO YOUR GUNS and remember that this is all a game, where YOU know the result.....a win for you.

I have also had a letter from Wragge & Co - with acknowledgement of service saying they intend to defend - this buys them another 14 days (28 instead of 14), so not too worried just yet!

Yep just sit tight and wait for a copy of their defence from the court ( if they send one)

Now they have acknowledged they have 33 days from the date your claim was issued to file a defence or pay up. otherwise you can go for judgement

Mine is 'hopefully' drawing to a close, but its the same tactic Marbles, Nationwide and Capital One have used.

Reading around all the threads it appears that A&L have a step by step 'tactic book'

That they stick to.

I think if you read other threads updated today most of them say similar things to yours.

Just hang in there- I know the waiting is a nightmare - I have no finger nails left :-)

I found that once a court date has been set they pay up. so dont worry.

Hi my claim was deemed served on Monday 23rd and I have received a letter dated 24th with a cheque for £680 (I am claiming £2,000) so will not be accpting but will tear in half and send back to them. I can apply for judgement on 8th May if they do not put in a defence. Maybe solicitors will become involved once I return cheque?
