  1. Thanks for the advice, but I am tempted to at least reply. With something along the lines that they should revisit my initial defence and the fact I am prepared to defend myself vigorously. Would that be a good or bad move?
  2. Hi An update. I have received a letter and information from Kearns following the case being stayed after I submitted my defence, back in November 2021. In regards to the case they have sent 4 pieces of information listed below 1, Photo copy of some terms and conditions - With no date, no reference number or my name, its just a photocopy of some T's & Cs 2, Copy of a default notice dated August 2009 - It was sent by Mercers Debt Collections Ltd 3, Copy Notices of Assignment from Barclaycard stating the account had been assigned to LC Asset 2 S.A R.L - Dated Jan 2021 and which I do not recall ever seeing and it was sent to an address I moved away from in 2016. 4, Copy of statements fro August 2008 until January 2010 In the letter Kearns go on to say they consider this will prove their clients claim on the balance of probabilities. The letter goes on to say I have 14 days to make offers to settle the claim (they have thoughtfully enclosed a pro-forma that states I admit the claim in full and any papers submitted in my defence will be withdrawn!) If they hear nothing in the next 14 days they will consider asking the court to set the matter down for a hearing before a judge. How should I reply. What I can't see is any documentation in regards to the terms and conditions or any agreement I have signed or even has reference to my name. Any help and advise would be greatly received
  3. Hi Just a quick update. Submitted my defence and received a letter back from the court confirming they have received it and sent on to the claimant. I understand the claimant has 28 days to reply to the Court if they wish to proceed with court action, so I guess it's a waiting game now until the end of the month. Also never had any replies to CCA and CPR31:14 requests Thanks again everyone for all your help.
  4. Hi Andy I am about to submit my defence as it needs to be in by 4pm on Monday and to be honest I only have enough spare time this afternoon, due to a personal event I have tomorrow and work first thing Monday. Just a couple of quick questions 1, Is it fairly straightforward to submit my defence on the MCOL website or is there anything I should pay special attention to. 2, I was going to delete paragraph 2 of my defence as Kearns did send a Letter of Claim back in August and so will have that in their documentation. Thanks again for the help Defence submitted, let's see what happens from here.

  6. As I said as I can't access my bank statements that far back, it is an estimate I have paid back around £2200 to £2800 over the years. But I did ask for the interest to be stopped when I offered my payment plan back in 2009. Im not sure they ever replied with an acceptance, but left me alone while I was paying £23.50 per month. Also I found their response to CCA request back in September 2009. It was just a copy of their terms and conditions! Would sending a SARS request to Barclaycard be helpful at this stage?
  7. I have found the last Barclaycard statement from the time I believe I started the payment plan. It was for £4844. I paid 23.50 per month for around 10 years. That is total of around £2820, but with a few missed payments and guessing it was 10 years. The figure could be anywhere between £2000 and and the figure quoted above £2820. The figure LC Asset are claiming is £3957.34 + Court fees of £205.00 Payments directly to Barclaycard, never to anyone else
  8. Hi Andy Ok I have found a the Barclaycard file and I can not see the default notice for 2010, so now I am unsure I ever received one. I have also tried to assess what the starting outstanding balance was as it seemed to jump around over time. Finally I have gone on-line to check the number payments and total amount I have paid Barclaycard since I went into a self generated payment plan back in 2009. The problem is my bank only allows me to go back to December 2014. I guess I could request a SARS, but it will take a while to comeback. If that is the best route should I send it directly to Barclaycard Thanks
  9. Hi Andy I will need to do some digging for the paperwork regarding the default in 2010, however I do recall receiving one or so I thought, but not in 2020. As for the outstanding balance again I will need to see if I can find the paperwork from 2007 and scroll through 10-12 years of bank statements to what I paid back, it doesn't help that I have moved home a couple of time since then and not exactly sure where the paperwork is. I will comeback to you soon Thanks again for all the help.
  10. Hello Everyone I would like some advice of when I should submit my defence to the court. The Claim form I received was dated 23/09/2021, however it didn't actually arrive with me until the 27/09/2021. I haven't received any response from LC Asset as of yet to my CCA Request and only what I would call stalling letter from Kearns as mentioned above on the 07/10/2021 to the CPR31:14 request. I have also listed below a 1st draft of my defence and would appreciate any help and advice or suggested inclusions or amendments. 1.The Claimant (C) claims the whole of the outstanding balance due and payable under an agreement referenced xxxxxxxx and opened xx/11/95. The agreement is regulated by the Consumer Credit Act 1974 (CCA) was signed by the Defendant (D) and from which credit was extended to D. 2.D failed to comply with a Default Notice served pursuant to s87 (1) CCA and by 25/02/2010 a default was recorded. As at 15/12/2020 the Defendant owed Barclaycard PLC the sum of £3751.16. 3.By an agreement in writing the benefit of the debt has been legally assigned to C effective 15/12/2020 and made regular upon C serving a Notice of Assignment upon D shortly thereafter. And C claims - 1, £3751.16, 2, Interest pursuant to section 69 County Court Act 1984 at a rate of 8% per Annum from 15/12/2020 to 23/09/2021 of £206.18 And thereafter at a daily rate 0.79 to date of judgement or sooner payment. Date 23/09/2021 Defence 1.The Defendant contends that the particulars of claim are 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. The Claimant has not complied with paragraph 3 of the PAPDC (Pre Action Protocol) Failed to serve a Letter of Claim pre claim pursuant to PAPDC changes of the 1st October 2017.It is respectfully requested that the court take this into consideration pursuant to 7.1 PAPDC. 3. Paragraph 1 is noted. I have had in the past a contractual relationship with Barclaycard. The Defendant does not recognise the reference number provided by the claimant within its particulars therefore I am unable to admit or deny the alleged debt claimed. I do not recall the precise details or agreement and have sought verification from the claimant who has not complied with my requests for further information. 4. Paragraph 2 is noted. The Defendant maintains that a default notice was never received. The Claimant is put to strict proof to that a default notice was issued by Barclays Bank and received by the Defendant. 5. Paragraph 3 is denied. I am unaware of any legal assignment or Notice of Assignment allegedly served from either the Claimant or Barclays Bank. 6. On the 05/10/2021 I requested information pertaining to this claim by way of a CPR 31.14 request and CCA1974 Section 78 request. The claimant as yet to respond to this request. Kearns as yet to respond in relation to the CPR 31.14 request. To date, 21/10/2021, no documentation has been received. The claimant remains in default of my section 78 request. 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 proof of assignment being sent/ agreement/ balance/ breach or termination requested by CPR 31.14, therefore the Claimant is put to strict proof to: (a) show how the Defendant entered into an agreement; and (b) show and evidence the nature of breach and service of a default notice pursuant to Section 87(1) CCA1974 (c) 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; 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, as 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. Thank you in advance of any help offered
  11. I have had a reply from Kearns in regards to the CPR 31:14 request I sent in. Listed is the important parts of their letter. I didn't want to put too much detail just in case of prying eyes In order to provide the documents requested we require time to acquire, compile papers and forward them to you. We confirm that a hold has been been placed on the account and no default judgement shall be requested within fourteen days of the date the documents are provided. We do not consider it necessary to file an application seeking time to provide documents, though if you require such please confirm and we shall do so (though an order may be sought for costs for that) Is this just a standard reply to my request and do I need to sit and wait to see what documents they can provide? I have started to compile my defence, but a lot will depend on what documents they provide. Also nothing back as of yet from LC Asset related to my CCA request. Is there anything more I need to be doing at this stage? Thanks again for your help
  12. Hi Everyone I have been on the MCOL site and followed instructions to defend all. CCA Request and CPR 31:14 requests are being posted in the morning. Is there anything else I need to be doing at this time? Thanks again for all the help
  13. Thank you for that dx 100uk I going to sent a CCA request to LC Asset over the weekend. Only thing is their address is in Luxembourg, I guess that's where I will send it. Is there a reason why they have based themselves there? However the solicitors are in Cardiff and will send CPR 31:14 at the same time.

Yes, It s was self generated plan set up by myself around Oct 2007 and paid monthly for over 11 years Thank you your help, listed below is the info you requested Should the first thing I should do is send a CPR31.14 request to the solicitor named on the claim form? Any help or advice is really appreciated.
  15. Hi Sorry If I haven't posted this thread in the right place. I wondered if anyone could help me with some advice on a Claim Form I received a couple of days ago from Barclaycard/LC Asset. A little background, I got into financial difficulties around 15 years ago after a marriage break up. It resulted in me having debts with 2 credit card companies and my bank at the time (over draft - Loan) and struggling to pay even the minimum payments. I did request CCA at the time from Barclaycard who sent back what looked like a hobbled photo copy of terms and conditions and stating it complied CCA 1974. So at the time I went into a debt payment plan with them and other debtors. I paid monthly until a few years ago with Brexit and Covid I had to close a small business I was running due to losing money and stopped paying them monthly and sorry to say have since buried my head in the sand. On the claim form it has various offers to pay full balance now ( I don't have that sort of money), agree to the sum owed and asking for time to pay or disagree and defend myself. My issue with the whole thing is the debt has been sold on and balance is going back up as interest is being applied again. If I agree with the claim and look to pay monthly I have very little disposable income and it will take 10's of years to pay back and I am now in my late 50's which I do not want. My issue is Im not sure I have the capability or knowledge to defend myself unless helped or should I just try to arrange a payment plan I do not think I would ever get to the end of and clear. I took the card out in 1995 and the debt is just over £4000. LC Asset solicitors are Kearns Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated as my partner who is aware I had debt problems from before we met and would worry herself to death about bailiffs turning up at the door.
  16. Hi, I'm looking for some help and guidance on claiming back PPI payments I have made of a Lloyds TSB credit card. A little bit of background. I took the card out around 2004 on-line and never knowingly ticked a box saying I wanted PPI on the card. I have always refused to take that type of insurance on any other loan or credit card I have had. To be honest it used to wrangle me when I saw the cost each month on the statement, however I just thought maybe I had to have it to have the card. In the last few years I have got into a debt problem and now only pay an amount i can afford each month and have never missed a payment. To be honest this card is amongst a number of cards and loan debts I am managing and I'm unsure if I have a default notice on this card, If it makes a difference I will check I have looked on the site and I'm trying to find a thread or some instructions on how to start a claim and the process I should follow. I was told by a friend to try claim back myself without using one of those PPI claim back companies and I could find lots on help from this site. Thank you in advance for any help given
