  1. Quick update, my case has been transferred to my local court. This happened on 25/04/19. How long does it usually take for them to get back to you regarding dates etc?
  2. So I've got a small claims directions questionnaire, I checked the link as advised but was wondering whether I should agree to mediation? Would it not go against me if it went to court and I had rejected this? Would it not also give me a chance to explain or should I just leave that if they take it to court? In terms of filling the form in is the following correct? - Section C -Yes to small claims track - Section D - my local county court (I'll name which one) What reason do I put as to why? - Section D2 - Evidence of an expert No - Section D3 - Witnesses 1 (myself)
  3. Correct this is for a landline. I'd missed that myself. It doesn't surprise me they've missed something like that though. In all the letters they sent me in the SAR pack there are letters offering me discounts to pay off the debt, in one they offered me a 100% discount with £0 to pay.
  4. Thanks for the link. I'll wait for the courts then. Apologies you're having to go over this twice! I checked the mcol website and it doesn't say they have received anything yet. Lowell are probably trying to get documents regarding the debt because what they have is insufficient, I'm just guessing though.
  5. So I've had a copy of Lowell's "Directions Questionnaire Small Claims Track". They've proposed mediation, I got a copy of this on Monday but haven't had anything from the courts yet. How long do they usually take to get back to you? Is there any info off the questionnaire you need to advise? There wasn't that much on it to be fair. Note: In my last post I put that the cost was 12 months charges, it was actually 15 (I was slightly out with my maths).
  6. I've had documents from the BT SAR come through. Looking at the details it doesn't say who made the payments only that payments were made. The account was £2.35 in credit when it was closed, however BT have charged 12 months usage following the cancellation. I thought there was a limit on how much they could charge if an account was cancelled based on them no longer having to provide the service. Is that correct?
  7. So I got back to a signed for letter last night dated 04/03/19 so they pushed it right until the last date. The pack doesn't show any of the information they'd need to prove the debt isn't statute barred, and they advised for full account info I need to contact BT. I have done an SAR with them but they have next to no information to provide from what they said over the phone. The pack of letters contains a basic snapshot of the account details, a log of all calls they've attempted and all the letters they're claiming to have sent. The letters are interesting because the dates suggest they sent some to my current address, then part way through started sending to an old address, then switched back to my current address. The old address is where the letter before claim was sent which I never received. Magically they included a copy of a letter before claim they say was sent to my current address dated a few weeks later which again was never received. There's really not much information in any of it, I'll wait to see what comes from the BT SAR.
  8. Thanks. It's day 33 by my count as I started the SAR process in the phone conversation I had with them on the 1st of Feb. I followed up with a letter on the 5th referencing the conversation on the 1st but haven't heard anything. Is there any punishments for not complying with SAR requests?
  9. Cheers. I'll see what I get in the next 28 days then.
  10. Quick update. I submitted my defence on Friday as advised above. How long do they usually take to get back to you regarding next steps and is this usually a letter from the courts? I've still not had anything back from Lowell regarding my SAR which was started on 1st Feb. Anything I can do regarding this?
  11. Thanks to both of you for your help. I'll leave it until Friday to submit my defence just in case they do send anything through following my SAR. I'll update if I do get anything.
  12. Do I not need to explain the circumstances then? That I moved out, haven't made a payment since June 2009?
  13. So I've been looking through a lot of the old threads trying to put together a defence but I think the only option is to put a statute barred defence in. How much detail do I need to put in regarding moving out/landlord taking over/not having made payments or do I not need to include any of this? If I don't mention it would I be able to use it as a defence if they took this to court? This is what I have so far: 1. The Claimant's claim was issued on 30/01/19. 2. The Defendant contends that the Claimant's claim so issued is a claim in contract and is statute barred pursuant to the provisions of section 5 of the limitation act 1980. If, which is denied, the claimant contends that the Defendant is in breach of the alleged contract, in excess of 6 years have elapsed since the date on which any cause of action for breach accrued for the benefit of the Claimant. The Defendant resided at this student property from June 2008 to June 2009. No acknowledgement or payment towards this claimed debt by the Defendant has been made since that date. 3. The Claimant's claim to be entitled to payment of £200 (I’ll put full amount on claim) or any other sum, or relief of any kind is denied. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated. I've got until Sunday 3rd to submit my defence (from 30th Jan) but need to submit Friday as I'm away this weekend. I've not had anything back from my SAR with Lowell yet.
  14. I'll refer back to my first post admittedly where there was a lot of information but I did mention it... "Any Other Information or Background Details: This account was from 2008/2009 when I was a student. I had a BT line to allow us to get broadband at our house. When I moved out of the house in 2009 the landlord took over the account as he was providing this as part of the house rental going forward. The name and payment details on the account were changed online. I have not paid anything towards this account since May 2009. Having spoken to BT they said the only information they have is that Lowells made the last payment to the account on 29/11/13 the date the account defaulted. "
