    • the motor is less than 6mts in your possession, you should not be paying a penny under Consumer rights act!!   dx
    • Bought the car for my partner in April 2021. Driving home i heard a tappet like sound and i assumed it was just that , tappets , so nothing to worry about. after 3 months my parthner tells me the noise got worse, as i do not use the car due to having a van, i agree it has got worse and something must be wrong. i visit a few garages and just ask them to listen. and they advise needs furthur inspection and not to drive it.   Called car dealer and returned with car as he wanted to inspect it at there garage. There mechanic said something about oil and to do a complete fluch of system and change oil and filder and add addidtive . i did all this and then noise persists. Dealer says it would be cheaper to get a new engine. but he will deal with it to get it done cheapo as possible. left the car for 2 weeks and nothing had been done, he struggling to find an engine under 2k.   Basically in the end he has asked me to sort the issue out my self and refunded me £850 towards it.  Now an engine fitted i have sourced.   because of all the mssing about i agreed to fixing it myself but is it fair that i pay most of the money to get it fixed ?   Engine £1720 Fitting £600 Total £2320
    • for the donation.   they should be copy and pasting the particulars of claim from the claimform for you and giving the address each was served too? id you ask that ? thats why you should record your call and get them to read it out from their se=creen. you can't move any ccj investigation fwd without those details   as for the statement i made.....   when a debt drops of your credit file as the defaulted date reaches it's 6th birthday, that does NOT mean the debt is dead nor still p'haps owed, esp if the debt owner has never been informed of your current and correct address for EACH debt  in writing, should you have moved since takeout .   even a statute barred debt can have a backdoor ccj raised to an old address, as it would be a roboclaim where no human checks anything...so that is why its SOOO important to ensure either the original credit before sale or the debt buyer/dca ha/has in writing your current and correct address from YOU.   never assume just 'because' a dca writes to your correct address they have it legally from you in writng if you've moved. for the sake of a 2nd class stamp its not worth the worry.   dx    
    • Thanks for your reply! I've found this info as well on cable.co.uk , so you think we should stick to our position and raise a complaint and disregard the early fees?    If Virgin Media is not available at your new address If you find that it is not available at your new property, then you will need to let Virgin Media know that you are leaving as soon as possible. If you are not at the end of your contract, you will unfortunately have to pay Early Disconnection Fees. The amount this will be is dependent on how many months you have left on your contract.   Best
    • Well all in all I'm a little more cheerful now   Got the holiday refunded (£230) Quoted package Travel regs at them (ferry also booked through them) and got £50 compensation and an offer of money off our next stay    New campsite is £190 so that leaves a little bit left over for a couple of nice meals out   Will miss not going to the island though but have booked into Prestatyn which while nice isn't quite what we wanted

I have got an allocation hearing this afternoon and I have got the small bundle together. I am bothered by the "Allocation hearing witness statement" as it is for claims below £5000.00 and mine is above this. Is there a witness statement for claims above £5000. I know that I have raised this question before and was told that it did not matter. Can someone explain why it does not matter, when it would seem to me to be lying on the statement??????????????????????????????????????

Hi, i dont know why it doesnt matter, have you been allocated the small claims? If that was the advice given, then follow it as it will be ok, anyway, chances are that they will settle anyway ;)

I am so sorry about this.

 

 

In no.7, it says "The claim is well below the 5K threashold. The claimant filed the claim believing it would be dealt with in the small claims court and did not anticipate the risk of bearing the costs in the fast or multi-track. To allocate the claim outside the small claims would be grossly unfair."

My claim is for £9000. So when filing my claim I must have known that it would be fast or multi-track.

 

Also I am not able to print out the list of settled cases.

 

Thanks

just take it out and state that you are aware that it is over the 5k limit but would ask that it is allocated to the fast track (yes, you want this is comes with automatic disclosure - they settle quicker) or you can ask that is it put into small claims, just adjust it to suit

Thanks for that. Can you help me reword the paragraph below because now I am asking for fast track

 

5." Under the overriding objectives of the Civil Procedure Rules there is an obligation of the judge to ensure the parties are placed on an equal footing. As the Defendant is a huge financial institution it would be unfair to place this in the fast or multi-track as this would give the defendant the advantage in being able to bear the risk of costs whereas the Claimant does not. The Defendant has ready access to legal advice and representation whereas the Claimant is a litigant in person."

I THINK I HAVE WON

My allocation hearing was today at 3.30pm. Due to a lot of other drama, I got there at 3.40pm. Anyway, while I sat waiting to be called, I asked the lady at reception if a anybody from Abbey had turned up. She said no, but she did put a fax onto my file.

 

Got called in and it was just me and the judge in the room. He said " This is the situation, Judge XXXXXX had allowed you to file your amended claim and he also set a date for an allocation hearing for today. Judge XXXXXX also stated that if either party did not turn up that judgement should be made against them." He then said "The court received a fax from Abbey on Friday at 10pm stating that for the past week they have been in ongoing negoiations with the claimant by email and letter and felt the they were close to an agreement so felt no need to attend court today."

They are a bunch of bloody liars. On Tuesday, I emailed Inga to tell her that I would not accept less than 9000.00. On Wednesday she email me back to say that offering a reduction of only 139.00 was not commercially attractive to them. On Wednesday night I replied and told her that when they were taking gross amounts of unfair charges out of my account, they did not consider that it would not be commercially attractive to me, so why bring up the commercially attractive arguement now. Inga did not answer me back. And that was Wednesday, they faxed the court on Friday night.

The judge then asked me had I come to an agreement with Abbey. I told him no. He said he thought it was absurd that Abbey did not turn up and thought they could send a fax even though no agreement was made. He then asked if I had any objections to him entering judgement against Abbey, I said no sir. We then went through the figures. Funnily enough he thought that the £1.92 daily rate I was charging was a bit high ( i told him it was 8% of the total) but he still went along with it. So I got my charges, interest, court costs and 78 days daily charge totalling the tidy sum of £9158.41. He said Abbey will have 14 days to pay.

 

I would like to say a very, very, very big thank you to all who have posted on my forum helping and encouraging me, and to all those who been there and done it, their forums were very inspiring.

Thanks for all your help this morning. I was sh---ing myself over nothing. When the judge asked if I had come to an agreement with Abbey and I told him no. I was going to show him the emails that I had sent. He said he did not want to see them because no agreement was made. In fact he looked at nothing I brought.
