1. The Defendant contends that the particulars of claim are vague and generic in nature.
The Defendant accordingly sets out its case below and relies on CPR r 16.5 (3) in relation to any particular allegation to which a specific response has not been made.
2. Paragraph 1 is noted. I have in the past had an agreement with Provident but do not recognise this specific account number or recollect any outstanding debt and have therefore requested clarification by way of a CPR 31.14 and section 77 request.
3. Paragraph 2 is denied. I have not been served with a Default Notice pursuant to the consumer credit Act 1974.
4. Paragraph 3 is denied. I am unaware of any legal assignment or Notice of Assignment pursuant to the Law and Property Act 1925 Section 136(1).
5. the Defendant sent a request by way of a section 77 pursuant to the Consumer Credit Act 1974 for a copy of the agreement, the Claimant has yet to comply and remains in default of said request.
6. A further request was made via CPR 31.14 to the Claimants solicitor requesting disclosure of documents on which the Claimant is basing their claim. The Claimant has not complied but has stated a general extension of time to retrieve the documents, to date nothing has been received.
7. It is therefore not accepted with regards to the Defendant owing any monies to the Claimant and the Claimant is put to strict proof to:
a) Show how the Defendant has entered into an agreement and;
b) Show how the Defendant has reached the amount claimed for and;
c) Show the nature of the breach and evidence by way of a Default Notice pursuant to sec 87.1 CCA 1974.
d) Show how the Claimant has the legal right, either under statute or equity to issue a claim.
8. As per Civil Procedure 16.5 it is expected that the Claimants prove the allegation that the money is owed.
9. By reasons of the facts and matters set out above, it is denied that the Claimant is entitled to the relief claimed or any relief.
