  1. It says all witness statements and documents that are to be relied upon for the hearing should be sent to the court 14 days before the case hearing, and also sent to the other party. So that needs to be done by 30th July, if they have paid the fee to proceed to the hearing, by the 16th July.
  2. The standard credit card defence which I got off here. Defence 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 and it is accepted insofar that I have once held a contractual relationship with(Insert original creditor). I do not recollect the details nor am I aware of any outstanding balance that the claimant refers to and have therefore sought clarity from the claimant given that that they are the assignee of this alleged debt and have very little knowledge of what they are claiming and do not appear to be able to disclose any further details by way of CPR 31.14. 3. Paragraph 2 is denied I have never received any Default Notice from the original creditor nor the claimant 4. Paragraph 3 is denied I am unaware of any legal assignment or Notice of Assignment allegedly served over x months ago. 5. On the xxxxxxxxx ( sent by recorded delivery) I requested information pertaining to this claim by way of a CPR 31.14 request and a Section 78 request. The claimant has failed to date to respond to the CPR and remains in default of the section 78 request. 6. It is therefore denied with regards to the Defendant owing any monies to the Claimant, the Claimant has failed to provide any evidence of assignment/balance/breach requested by CPR 31. 14, therefore the Claimant is put to strict proof to: (a) show how the Defendant has entered into an agreement; and (b) show and evidence the nature of the breach and service of a valid default notice; © show how the Defendant has reached the amount claimed for; and (d) show how the Claimant has the legal right, either under statute or equity to issue a claim; 7. It is therefore denied with regards to the Defendant owing any monies to the Claimant, the Claimant has failed to provide any evidence of assignment/balance/breach requested by CPR 31. 14 8. As per Civil Procedure Rule 16.5(4), it is expected that the Claimant prove the allegation that the money is owed. 9. On the alternative, if the Claimant is an assignee of a debt, it is denied that the Claimant has the right to lay a claim due to contraventions of Section 136 of the Law of Property Act and Section 82A of the consumer credit Act 1974. 10. 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. Alternative finish…. 10. On the xxxxxxxx I made a legal request by way of a CPR 31.14 request and a Section 78 request to the Claimant. The Claimant has failed to comply and therefore is in default of this request and as such is not entitled to to enforce the agreement or request any relief until such compliance. 11. By reason of the facts and matters set out above, the claimants claim is denied.

  4. I received a County Court summons 17 October 18, for a debt from BoS credit card the particulars of claim are as follows The Defendant entered into an agreement for a Bank of Scotland (Credit card) under ref XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX. The defendant failed to maintain the required payments and the service was terminated. The agreement was later assigned to the Claimant on 24/11/2016 by BoS PLC and notice given to the defendant. Despite repeated requests for payment, the sum of £3400 remains due and outstanding And the claimant claims The said sum of £3400 and costs. After i received this I sent a section 77 79 request for my credit agreement dated 29th October 2018 , which I have not received, I only received an acknowledgement and nothing else. On the same day I also sent a cpr 31.14 letter to them as well. I notified the court of my intention to defend the case. I filed my defence on 8/11/18 I have since received an offer of mediation which i refused. The court has now notified me on the 14th February 2019, that the case will be heard in court in August 2019 It says that Unless the claimant does by 4:00pm on the day of 16th July 2019 pay to the court the trial fee of £355 or file a properly completed application for help with fees, then the claim will be struck out with effect from 16th July 2019 without further order and , unless the court orders otherwise, you will be liable for the costs which the defendant has incurred. So what should I do now, wait to see if they pay the trial costs on 16th July? Then start preparing my defence. Or should I be doing anything else. They havent even sent me the credit file or credit agreement, or responded to my cpr request. Not sure what to do, I cannot remember when the credit card was originally taken out, and there is no dates on any of the forms saying when it was taken out, just that it was assigned to Lowell in 2016. What is the best course of action?
  5. Ok i have read the summary judgement info, is this something that happens a lot, because i have not come across this before, should i be worried. Doesent look like there is anything i can do, i have submitted my defence, what else can i do?
  6. what is summary judgment, can they they just get a judgment against me without a hearing
  7. I have received a letter dated 22nd Jauary from Restons, with a copy of CCA agreement or a copy , and a template default notice, no signatures just standard copies, they say this is sufficient to prove my knowledge of the account. They say i need to withdraw my Defence by completing Form N9A within 14 days. This is my last opportunity before " an application is made to lift the stay on these proceedings, to strike out the Defence and to enter Judgment against you for the full amount plus legal costs" Can they do this, this is the first i have heard from them since August 21018, surely there are time limits, I am worried they will enter Judgment against me as they say, can they do this. Please help, as i thought this was over. Regards x
  8. I have received a letter from Restons the solicitors, they say they written to me on 3 july, regarding my defence, but it went to my old address, somehow MCOL still had my old address on their system, so they sent it there, I changed it as soon as i became aware of the old address being on the MCOL site. Obviously i never received the letter so they have sent me a copy, after checking my correct address again, this new letter is dated 24th August. B asically it says they reject my template defence and say they have sent all relevant docs to me in response to my s75/77 request etc etc, and they have asked me to respond to them in 14 days, they say my defence has no real chance of success and have asked me to complete a form N9A to withdraw the defence, or submit reasonable settlement proposals to them. Should i reply or is this matter now completed according to the courts. The fact that MCOL had my old address, but I changed it as soon as i realised, will this go against me, they sent the original court summons to my correct address, and they had my email address but didnt query the different address untill the letter was returned to them. I dont know what to do, as I was under the impression this was now completed, as i didnt hear anything from them. Please help. Kind regards.
  9. Hello, I put my defence in on the 3rd June which the MCOL site says it was received, but I havent heard anything since, do I just keep waiting or is there a time limit? Regards J
  10. Oh yes meant to put that in, but if they come back I can add it in like you say.
  11. Defence Filed, Thanks very much Andy, Much appreciated your quick response.
  12. Here is my Defence, as they have replied to my CPR request and responded to my section 78 request I have had to acknowledge this, hope is sounds ok. Can you let me know if it needs changing, I have to send it today or tomorrow. Defence 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. It is noted and it is accepted insofar that I have once held a contractual relationship with CitiFinancial. I do not recollect the details nor am I aware of any outstanding balance that the claimant refers to and have therefore sought clarity from the claimant given that that they are the assignee of this alleged debt and have very little knowledge of what they are claiming and do not appear to be able to disclose any further details by way of CPR 31.14. 3. With regard to a Default Balance of £3199.87 this is denied as I have never received any Default Notice from the original creditor nor the claimant. 4. The Notice of Assigment is denied I am unaware of any legal assignment or Notice of Assignment allegedly served over 9 years ago. 5. On the 14th May 2018 ( sent by recorded delivery) I requested information pertaining to this claim by way of a CPR 31.14 request and a Section 78 request was also sent on the 4th December 2017. The claimant has responded to my CPR request advising they are not under any obligation to provide any documentation. The response from my Section 78 request was a copy of the terms and conditions and not a copy of a credit agreement. 6. It is therefore denied with regards to the Defendant owing any monies to the Claimant, the Claimant has failed to provide any evidence of assignment/balance/breach requested by CPR 31. 14, therefore the Claimant is put to strict proof to: (a) show how the Defendant has entered into an agreement; and (b) show and evidence the nature of the breach and service of a valid default notice; © show how the Defendant has reached the amount claimed for; and (d) show how the Claimant has the legal right, either under statute or equity to issue a claim; 7. It is therefore denied with regards to the Defendant owing any monies to the Claimant, the Claimant has failed to provide any evidence of assignment/balance/breach requested by CPR 31. 14 8. As per Civil Procedure Rule 16.5(4), it is expected that the Claimant prove the allegation that the money is owed. 9. On the alternative, if the Claimant is an assignee of a debt, it is denied that the Claimant has the right to lay a claim due to contraventions of Section 136 of the Law of Property Act and Section 82A of the consumer credit Act 1974. 10. 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. 11. On the 14th May 2018 I made a legal request by way of a CPR 31.14 request and a Section 78 request made on the 4th December 2017 to the Claimant. The Claimant has failed to comply and therefore is in default of this request and as such is not entitled to enforce the agreement or request any relief until such compliance. 12. By reason of the facts and matters set out above, the claimants claim is denied.
  13. so no need to reply to it. Just file a defence.
  14. Thank you i will look at that, but just had todays post and i have received a letter from Restons in reply to my cpr request. They say they are under no legal obligation to provide me with a copy of the original agreement as they are unaware of any valid request request under section 77-79 of the cca being made to the creditor and the appropriate fee being paid. (I have done this and had a reply from Cabot and Restons on this so i am confused) The letter then goes on to say I have had regular statements so I knew what was going on etc. It also says it is their understanding that a Default Notice was issued and they note that i do not deny this. And i should visit my personal records for this information. (As far as I can recall I have not agreed that i have had a Default notice, and dont have one in my possession) They go on to say their only obligation is to serve a Notice of Assignment which they believe they have done. pursuant to Section 136 Law property Act 1925, Furthermore i do not appear to dispute having received a Notice of Assignment. ( I have never been asked if I have received one, and i dont have one in my possession) It then just says Legal proceedings have been issued and will not be withdrawn etc. Is it worth replying to this or should I just concentrate on filing a defence. Thank You
  15. I have had nothing from the claimant since the claim came through, but I understand that i still have to file a defence, so I am trying to construct one, so if i take out the things about (b) which is applicable to overdrafts only and about not having a copy of my signature, but they havent produced an agreement with my signature on, so do I mention that?
