    • I had some good news on this yesterday as the dealer refunded me in full. This wasn't without a fight though and he was digging his heels in. I did mention my rights several times and dismissed his claims regarding a warranty.   I was due to drop it off at his mechanics yesterday but they were closed until Monday. He said he would get the issues fixed before reselling it. I've checked this morning and the car is listed back on Autotrader. It's obvious they don't care.   Thanks all to helped on here.
    • So if this is a claim for all losses including your uninsured losses I am not sure why you would not be assisting. The court claim in your name as you are the party looking to recover losses as a result of the accident. The Insurers or their legal people will do all of the work.
    • As you are the renter of the garage, you have a direct right to sue the person who erected the bar in the tort of nuisance. Very straightforward and you can do it as a small claim by suing for the return of your money and a small amount of damages - say £100.   We can help you.   Get together with the other people affected and do it together.   Normally you would want an order from the court that he stops the nuisance.  This would be a more complicated procedure - but if you win your small claim action is is scarcely imaginable that he will continue.   Nuisance is the wrongful interference with the enjoyment of land and as long as you have a legitimate interest in the land then any interference with that could be a nuisance. You are renter and he has interfered with your access to it
    • Is this a lock up in a block behind houses, and the path is just wide enough vor vehicles to access. ?  If the HA could be bothered they should be the initial contasct as per DX, its up to them to tolchock tne other renter if there is no permission to restrict access.
    • Get the statement which you have been offered.  It will be extremely important to your case.   I would suggest that you write to him and tell him that only a full refund will be acceptable and that you are extending your deadline by a further 5 days after which you will issue the claim without further discussion.   I agree that you are in a bind about needing a car etc.   If you fell that you would be better served by getting it repaired and suing for those costs then that is certainly an option.  In that case get 2 quotes for the work and send then to him and tell him that you are going to put the work in hand in 5 days and that you will be suing him for the cost.   However, don't forget that you will still be saddled with the vehicle and if there are further problems in the future you will still be faced with the same issues with this dealer.   You would be much better off making a clean break and suing for the refund.   Whatever, get the statement - post a copy here.

    • Hi,  
      I was in Sainsbury’s today and did scan and shop.
      I arrived in after a busy day at work and immediately got distracted by the clothes.
       
      I put a few things in my trolley and then did a shop.
      I paid and was about to get into my car when the security guard stopped me and asked me to come back in.
       
      I did and they took me upstairs.
      I was mortified and said I forgot to scan the clothes and a conditioner, 5 items.
      I know its unacceptable but I was distracted and Initially hadn’t really planned to use scan and shop.
       
      No excuse.
      I offered to pay for the goods but the manager said it was too late.
      He looked at the CCTV and because I didn’t try to scan the items he was phoning the police.
       
      The cost of the items was about £40.
      I was crying at this point and told them I was a nurse, just coming from work and I could get struck off.
       
      They rang the police anyway and they came and issued me with a community resolution notice, which goes off my record in a year.
      I feel terrible. I have to declare this to my employer and NMC.
       
      They kept me in a room on my own with 4 staff and have banned me from all stores.
      The police said if I didn’t do the community order I would go to court and they would refer me to the PPS.
       
      I’m so stressed,
      can u appeal this or should I just accept it?
       
      Thanks for reading

Hi guys

 

Have been reading the forum for a couple of days now and thought i would post.

 

Have been working off of one of the other forums upto now as theres loads of knowledge all over the place it seems.

 

My story to date is that i have got all my charges and added them all up in a compond interest rate Excell spreadsheet for 6 years.

 

I then added nationwides unathourised borrowing rate at 24.9% and the charges with Contractual Interst have come upto just shy of £14k the charges alone were just under £3k.

 

Alot of interest as you can see.:grin: Bit concerned about this now but its too late really.

 

I have split the claim into 3 to keep under the £5k MCOL limit for small claims and submitted them over a couple of weeks as and when i could afford it.

 

The POC i used is below:

The Claimant holds acc. no. xxxxxxxxx with

Defendant. From xx-xx to xx-xx, Defendant

debited charges iro of purported breaches of

contract. Defendant has been supplied with

list of charges and interest. Claimant

contends: a-The charges exceed the

Defendant's losses caused by such breaches;

b-The Term permitting the Defendant to levy

such charges is unenforceable under Unfair

Terms in Consumer Contracts Regulations

1999, Unfair Contract Terms Act 1977 and at

Common Law. c-If charges are a fee for a

service, then they must be reasonable under

S.15 of Supply of Goods and Services Act

1982. Claimant claims: a-Return of amounts

debited of £xxxxxx; b-Interest of xx% -

£xxxxx as per contractual rate of interest;

Any default notices to be removed.

Costs allowed by the Court.

 

This should be ok finger crossed as others have used it.

 

The claim as been aknowledged on all three claims from eversheds and they going to defend the the full amount.

 

they now have until the 3rd July to submit there defence before i can request Judgement.

 

Just hope i haven't messed up anywhere.

 

I geuss its just the waiting game now:mad:

Guys looks like i might have been givern some bad advice by splitting my claim under the £5k claim limit.

 

All 3 cliams have been aknowledged already and have been in the court process for nearly 3 weeks now.

 

There 28 days ends on the 10 july.

 

Is there anything i can do to try and not get these chucked out from the court for misusing there system.

 

Or

 

Is it to late and i just have to suck it and see.:shock:

Hi Haybaby,

 

I would advise that you should read through all the FAQ's on the website. I was advised with my claim to just put in the 1 claim. I waited until I had the money to do this as it was over 5k, but was advised not to put in seperate claims as this could be deemed detrimental.

 

With regards schedule of charges you should send 2 copies to the court and 1 copy to the solicitors for each case registered ensuring that they have the claim number on them.

 

Finally with regards mailing the solicitors it is best to send them a reminder mail a couple of days before the deadline, and then again on deadline day.

 

Hope this helps.

unfortunately i have got to far through my claim now and didnt find this site untill after i had submitted everything and had been acknowledged on MCOL.

 

I would have defo done thing differently if i had found this site before i started.

 

I have just emailed the courts the Schedule of Charges and the Solicitors aswell.

 

If i hadnt of seen it on here i wouldnt of known they were needed till after they had entered a defence.

Hiya Haybaby,

 

The nationwide take it to the wire unfortunately and they will probably enter a defence right at the last minute just to draw it out even longer, some have suceeded with e-mails to Eversheds ey=tc, my claim was for nearly £6,000 and they paid up 4 days before the 28 days were up without contacting their Solicitors then others have had to wait even longer its judt pot luck at moment when they pay up, but providing you have done everything right they will pay up, eventually, Good luck:D

hi Haybaby,

 

My 28 days are up 7/7/07 (see my thread yesterday about email). Looks like I did a similar thing to you 'cos using different thread advice. Same solicitors + personel etc. Still waiting to hear back from a 2nd e-mail I sent 'cos of the wording of my initial reply.

 

Gettin' a bit close to 28 days now but the more case law I've read the more determined I feel that these Institutions have taken advantage of their postion, and don't mention NW being a "mutual" or "Friendly" Society. Arrrggg. Gonna have to lie down again now. Sure I'm geting an ulcer with all this:evil:.

 

Anyway good luck

And dont let the Bankers get you down!!!;)

Dear Sir / Madam

In reference to the claims i have with Nationwide Building Society

xxxxxxxxx for £4386.99

xxxxxxxxx for £4838.34

xxxxxxxxx for £4595.87

As you are aware we are now aproaching the 28 days in which you have to file a defence for these claims.

I am sure your client Nationwide is aware of the increased cost in interest to the claim the longer these case's go on.

i suggest, and feel that the court would agree we try to settle this claim before a court appearance is needed. I am also sure you are aware that the vast majority of these case also end up with the claiment winning the case.

On this note i would take £13821.20 as full and final settlement on all 3 claims paid into nationwide account xx-xx-xx xxxxxxxxx.

This amount would resolve all outstanding claims with nationwide and i would then withdraw from court action.

Just spoke to a guy at nationwide and my first two claims will be in my account today but at only 8% this is not what i have been claiming and it should have been at 24.9%.

 

What shall i do.

 

Do i send them a letter saying i will take it as part payment?

Just take the money and run?

 

 

Also he said they work the interst out on each indivdual amount but this will add up for less then what it does if you put the 8% in the spreadsheet.

 

Really stuck on what to do now as its obviously a lot less then what i was going for.

 

Also is it worth transfering the money out of this account into another one so they cant claw it back at any point.

 

I have not agreed to any payments or settlement from them.

 

the guy on the phone called nathan said the onbudsman and the court advise to pay back the charges with the statuary 8% not sure if this is true or not.
