  1. Hi all I've received my first solicitors letter from Mortimer Clarke re an alleged debt with Cabot which according to them originally links back to Sainsbury's bank. I'm not the best with finances. I'm off work on ESA with Bipolar/Depression/Anxiety since 1996. Most of my mail gets thrown away unopened. I know this is bad. I've checked my equifax credit report and it shows a default with Cabot credit management group on 15/03/13. There is nothing on my equifax or noddle credit file mentioning Sainsbury’s at all. Any contact re sainsbury’s financial products I’ve had in the past would have been well over 6 years ago. The last contact I had with them was around 2009. Yes I may have received letters but never acknowledged or replied. Neither have I been on the phone to them. I’ve been given until 16/05/17 to respond to mortimer clarke solicitors who have been ‘instructed to issue a claim’ by cabot. I’m not sure if the debt exists and if it did, whether it is statute barred. What should I do? Many thanks
  2. Any help appreciated I bought a car on HP in 2003, It was beyond my means and I only made 4 repayments -the car was repossed in 2005. I had a company called Marlin ringing me at work constantly and I was bullied into paying £15pm - I moved house and changed banks and the payments stopped in 2013. In 2015 I had letters from Cabot requesting money - over the years I have argued with them over the debt. They say it was assigned to them in 2016 yet I have statements from the original HP company in 2007 showing the balance - so how can they have it assigned if it was still with the original lender. It was due to become statute barred on 01/02/19 - however Mortimer issued an online claim on 27/12/18 - I defended and requested a SAR - they have only sent me 2 out of 9 pages of the credit agreement - which includes PPI and Gap insurance. There are various inconsistencies in the paperwork, dates amounts etc. Do I stand a chance in court of getting the claim in my favour or should I just negotiate with the Solicitor on a reduced amount?
  3. Hi all My wife recently received a County Court Claim Form which we have decided to dispute in full. I've completed the details below. I would be really grateful for your help with next steps. From reading other threads it seems my next move should be to send a CCA request to the Claimant and a CPR 31:14 request to the legals reps. Is this correct? Thanks --- Name of the Claimant: Cabot Financial (UK) Limited Date of issue: 09 Jan 2019 - Defence form submitted online on 24 Jan 2019 What is the claim for: By an agreement between JD Williams Ltd Re Fashion World & the Defendant dated 11/10/2015 ('the Agreement') JD Williams Ltd Re Fashion World agreed to issue the Defendant with a credit account.

Costs Have you received prior notice of a claim being issued pursuant to paragraph 3 of the PAPDC (Pre Action Protocol)? No Have you changed your address since the time at which the debt referred to in the claim was allegedly incurred? No Did you inform the claimant of your change of address?

  4. Hi all, Hoping for some advice if possible. Early 2017 I received a claim form from Cabot for an old Yorkshire Bank overdraft debt - I wasn't in the best position at the time but did manage to file a standard claim defence through MCOL and then was told it would be sent back to the client to review. Heard nothing and am now in a much better situation out the blue approx a week ago I received a letter from the solicitors with the documentation I had requested in my claim defence etc. I have attached a copy of the letter they have sent me and they have also sent full bank statements, notices of charges and a notice of assignment. The claim is for approx £1000 - £875 from the account and the rest in solicitor fees. As a bit of context, the account was held from 2013-2014 and I had a serious gambling addiction at the time, essentially any money I received I was spending straight away on gambling. I had a current account with Yorkshire Bank with no agreed overdraft, yet I was constantly able to go several hundreds of pounds overdrawn, and of course the fees made this worse. Based on the bank statements they sent, I accrued approx £850 of bank charges in the 10/11 months I used the account (these were at £25 per charge for unplanned overdraft and a couple of £35 returned DD). Note the final balance now is not just charges as some of these were paid off during using the account. I was in a cycle where I would be overdrawn, credit the account and return to a positive balance, then be allowed to go overdrawn on gambling transactions and then charges would be added and the cycle would repeat, until I ended up so deep overdrawn I abandoned the account. Towards the end I was able to go over £600 overdrawn in gambling transactions, and then £185 fees were also added to this as well as extra debit interest that accumulated. The letter states they would like to settle without further court proceedings and that I can propose a repayment plan. After some research online I believe one option to me would be to submit a formal complaint to Yorkshire Bank about the charges and my financial situation at the time and how I was constantly able to go overdrawn by a large amount, and if necessary go on to the Ombudsman after. Do you think this is a good approach, and would it stop Mortimer wanting to proceed with court action whilst the complaint is considered? I am of course open to any other suggestions! Thanks a lot and sorry for the long read, please let me know if any more info is required. Attached: Letter received today Statement of amount owed One of the bank statements (towards the end of the account) as an example - can see it started OD, went into credit, then ended more OD than it started (unfortunately i no longer have copy of original claim form or my defence - trying to access MCOL to retrieve these but wasn't thinking straight enough to keep a log of my details when this all started a couple of years ago) Thanks for any advice
  5. I am also posting the same story on other forums this is not to undermine anyone on any of these in any way, but to gauge different options and ideas that people may have when dealing with this. It could be there is stuff that may help others out across all pages and that can only be a good thing for those of us consumers being roally shafted by the establishment!!! 2007 with a growing family I took out a car loan with Welcome Finance (BIG mistake, I know. Never again!) the loan was adjusted late 2008 to reduce the payment amount and supposedly the PPI and insurances were cancelled as mis-sold. 2012 it was my belief that I was paying over the odds for a car that was vastly overinflated price, that the PPI etc although cancelled the costs were not commuted as I was expected to pay almost 12k for a car worth 4500 at purchase. so account was placed into dispute. Dispute was ignored, come march 2013 account was registered default, court threats and a CPR letter was sent requesting all documentation in march 2013. april, may 2013 further correspondence was received clearly the dispute was ignored and so was the CPR until August when the CPR was acknowledged. Nothing! at some point the account was sold to Lowells, Then Cabot, Marlin, back to Cabot but nothing was ever actioned and nothing was posted out that warranted action. As the account was in an ignored legal dispute situation but still had been registered as default and sold to 3rd parties this is a monumental breach! Finally 14/07/15 I received a letter from Cabot the account was being referred to Mortimer Clark. Same day, but postmark 15/07/15 I received a letter from Mortimer Clark stating they were instructed to take court proceedings (Nothing in the letter states clearly this is a LBA) and I was to contact them. The letters appear below Mortimer clark letter so I initially knocked up this response removed fotl rubbish letter - dx oh!.... was it not much better then, got me worried now please ignore spacing and syntax mistakes, this was a draft. Following advice on xxxxxxxx I followed this letter instead
  6. Back in 2010 I received a ccj which I have been paying £10 a month to Hillesden Securities who were managing the account on behalf of Cabot. I have recently received a letter from Cabot informing me that they have asked Mortimer Clarke to take over managing my account. Apparently Mortimer Clarke are happy to keep to the repayment plan agreed with Hillesden, but they will need to speak to me to arrange for my payments to be sent to them directly. I don't particularly want to speak to them as I'm worried they will start to harass me for higher payments. I have found an email address for them so am going to use that. My question is though, should I be worried that Cabot have moved the account to Mortimer Clarke after all this time?
  7. Advice please I have received this letter, see pics, its a debt with marbles credit card which was then sold to cabot this year, now i have got this letter from Mortimer Clarke regarding potential court action if i do not respond in 30 days. ( i also have an aqua credit card and aqua loan which i have also not paid off they are sending me letters as well but not go to this stage yet and they are the same company as Marbles so i guess will be doing the same thing next. I cant afford to pay this and have been struggling. Long story short, my ex used to take my money and use my cards to gamble and pay for a drug habit i didn't know about i was subject to mental torture for an extended period of time, if i didnt let him do this he would threaten to tell my job lies to get me sacked which made me feel sick as i love my job and i am good at it, now he is finally out of my life i have a shed load of debts that will be chasing me like this one. What is the best thing for me to do. Thanks in advance.
  8. Hi, I received a letter from Ruthbridge over a DLC debt which has been assigned to them, this is very old although payments were being made to dlc through a dmc in 2011. I received this letter threatening to make me bankrupt! I decided to send a CCA request to them and have just received a reply today returning my postal order. This states 'we write further to your recent correspondence requesting information with regard to our reasons for contacting you. We take note of the points you have raised in your correspondence, however we must advise we are not in a position to reply with your request at this stage as we are required to verify information we have been provided with yourself for the purposes of data protection in compliance with the Data Protection Act 1998. We would appreciate it if you would contact our offices so that we can complete the necessary verification and address and further queries you may have with regards to this matter' Obviously it is a trick to try and get me to call them, but where does this leave me with the CCA request bearing in mind they returned the p order? I should also point out that this debt is no where on my credit file and I think the original agreement must have been way back in about 2004/5, I doubt there is any chance they would have the original agreement. Thanks roadhog
  9. Good Afternoon, I am hoping somone would give me some advice, I have been recieving letters from Mortimer Clarke Solicitors, i have attached the most recent one. This debt is from a Loan i had from Sainsburys in 2011. I had been making payments on it for some time and paid 70% of it off. For some reason the payments stopped, possible due to closing my old Barclays Bank Acc and moving address aruond the same time, the loan was fogotten about completely. Cabot are now after the remaining £300 of the debt + all their fees and charges. I have responded saying i will pay £70 per month which is what i used to pay Sainsburys but they now want me to fill out their expenditure form. What are my options here? They mention Court Judgement and a Warrent of control? but i havent reieved anything from the Court this issue was only bough to my attention about 6 weeks ago. I have not refused to pay, i have responded to all thier letters a Warrant of control seems slightly over the top. Any help would really be appreciated. i checked my Clear Score and its been hit hard by this! infact its gone down about 90 points. Many thanks
  10. Hi, I have just received a letter from MC about a Black Horse debt which I believe is from around 2003/4. They are correct in stating that there was a CCJ obtained on this debt and that regular payments have not been met. The CCJ does not show on my credit file nor on my partners which makes me believe that it is over 6 years old now(how relevant this is I don't know). They are asking me to contact them within 14 days to tell them our current circumstances which I am reluctant to do. I cannot remember the exact date of the CCJ but I feel it was around 2010/11. Could anyone advise us on the best way forward please with this. Thanks Nic
  11. Hi All Around 2010/11 I was in heaps of debt, various cc, loans etc, totalling c £30k. I took some great advice from this site, worked hard, and managed to settle everything. Finally debt free by summer of 2016, credit score still not great, but heading in the right direction. And now I receive a letter from Mortimer Clarke (Cabot): ‘As you are aware a County Court Judgement has been entered against you under Claim Number QWERTY123 and we ask you to pay the outstanding sum of £2244 direct to this office within 14 days.’ The letter encloses an income and expenditure form with a view to arranging a monthly payment, but goes on to say: ‘…our client may be willing to accept a reduced amount for a lump sum payment to settle the debt’. First I’ve heard of it, and I’m gutted, thought all this nonsense was behind me. I’ve established that the CCJ was issued at Northampton and has subsequently been transferred to my local court. All paperwork was sent to an old address, which is why I knew nothing about it. All of this happened just over 3 years ago, and I’m just finding out about it now. And strangely, it doesn’t appear on my credit file? As I thought I was debt free, my circumstances allowed me to become a student, so I’m currently studying full-time, with negligible income (averaging about £200 pm). Seems to me I have 2 choices (unless any of you can suggest a third way?) 1. Offer about £20 pm, which they are unlikely to accept, as it would run for 9 years. 2. Offer a lump sum, I think I could scrape together £600 - £700, but again this probably wouldn’t be enough. All I know about the CCJ is what the lady at Northampton told me: That it has been transferred to my local court (don’t know when), That the payment terms were ‘Forthwith’ and, That the claim said it was in respect of a CC agreement ‘entered into on or about 19/05/2004’. (Is it suspicious that the date of the agreement isn’t precise? Suggests to me that they don’t have a copy of it). In the scheme of things, the debt isn’t that big (given my situation 7-8 years ago), but this is hanging heavier than those bigger debts ever did, because my circumstances are different now, and I have no real income to work with. I really don’t know which way to turn with this. Would be so grateful for your thoughts. Cheers Scarboro
  12. Hi All Received a letter from Mortimer Clarke today regarding a debt to Cabot Financial. Letter claims their client obtained a judgement against me on 04/02/2016. First paragraph says "Because you have failed to pay the judgement debt in accordance with the terms of the judgement our client is now entitled to take action to enforce the judgement order against you. Our client has instructed us to apply to the County Court for an Attachment to Earnings order to be made against you." Final paragraph says "If you do not contact us within 7 days , then our client has instructed us to apply for an Attachment of Earnings Order against you." Notes: 1. I have checked Trust Online for my current and previous 3 addresses and there are no ccjs registered against me. 2. I did not receive any correspondence threatening to take me to court, advising I was being taken to court or asking if I wished to defend and finally I did not receive a judgement. 3. The letter makes no mention which court they obtained the judgement from or any judgement reference number. 4. The debt is from 2007 and I believe it may well be statute barred now. Can anyone provide any thoughts or advice on how I should proceed at this point? kind regards
  13. Hello I think I've royally messed up with something and am looking for some advice please. Tonight I was having a tidy and have come across a claim form which I hadn't noticed or even opened. The issue date is the 28th June. I've gone onto MCOL and tried to request 28 days as opposed to the 14 but I suspect the clock struck at 16:00 this afternoon. I'm just looking for words of wisdom on how to proceed please. I know I've been stupid and didn't even see it mixed in with a load of rubbish that usual rubbish and takeaway menus that graces my letterbox. I've included the details below but it's probably a bit late for that. ----- Date of issue 28th June 2018 Particulars of Claim 1. Monies due under current account overdraft. 2. The Claimant's claim is for the balance outstanding under a Bank account facility Yorkshire Bank agreed to maintain for the Defendant. 3.It was a term of the Bank account that any debit balance would be repayable by the Defendant in full on demand.n 4. The Defendant has failed to repay the amount due. 5. The debt was assigned to the Claimant. THE CLAIMANT THEREFORE CLAIMS 2139.55 2. Costs Have you received prior notice of a claim being issued pursuant to paragraph 3 of the PAPDC (Pre Action Protocol) ? Not that I am aware of. What is the total value of the claim? 2324.55 Is the claim for - a Bank Account (Overdraft) or credit card or loan or catalogue or mobile phone account? Overdraft When did you enter into the original agreement before or after April 2007? Before, probably late 90's. Has the claim been issued by the original creditor or was the account assigned and it is the Debt purchaser who has issued the claim. Cabot. Were you aware the account had been assigned – did you receive a Notice of Assignment? I'm not sure but I have received letters from Cabot. Did you receive a Default Notice from the original creditor? I'm not sure. Have you been receiving statutory notices headed “Notice of Default sums” – at least once a year ? I don't think so. Why did you cease payments? Personal problems and financial difficulties. What was the date of your last payment? Probably 2013. Was there a dispute with the original creditor that remains unresolved? I stopped using this account and the debt has now been sold to Cabot. Did you communicate any financial problems to the original creditor and make any attempt to enter into a debt management plan No. ----
  14. Hi all. Right so I had a Vanquis credit card, it defaulted in 2015 with about 3k owing. Ive had various letters about it from Cabot (whom the debt was assigned to at some point) and Dydens. In 2016 I recived a latter from Drydens, threatening legal action and also making lots of inaccurate statements about the CPR and legal process, etc...I replied to Drydens asking for the usual stuff, letter of assignment etc, they replied saying they were halting any legal action. In 2017 I received a letter from cabot again saying no legal action would be taken. Then last week I received a letter from Mortimer Clarke saying that they were now the solicitor AND also including form N434 - Change Of Legal Representative but on this form it staytes Claimant = cabot, Defendant = Me, Claim Number is blank. The actual letter claims judgment was made against me on .... (yes that what it says, there is a blank space !). I have not received any letters about this claim, I suspect there is no claim, I phoned Mortimer Clark who said the claim was performed by previous solicitors Drydens and that they didnt have the claim number..hhhmmm Ive phoned cabot who know nothing about this so it look very like;ly there is no claim. Im surprised though that MC are prepared to lie in this manner, it appears to be it could have serious repercussions. An obvious give away is the form N434 they sent me, this is required to be sent to all the parties and the court, are they seriously saying they sent this to the court without a claim number !!???, as I found out this couldnt be a admin oversight as they dont actually know the claim number. Any thoughts on what next ?. I intend to phone Drydens to hear what they have to say. Phone Northampton Court, not sure if they can help with a claim number but Ill double check there hasnt been claim. Write complaint to Mortimer Clark, why are they misleading me, is this fraudulent ?, they are after all trying to pressure me to pay what hasnt been adjudicated on yet. Follow up this complaint to SRA Andy
  15. Hello everyone, I'd really appreciate some help with a claim form that I received this week. Name of the Claimant ? CABOT FINANCIAL (UK) LIMITED Date of issue – top right hand corner of the claim form – this in order to establish the time line you need to adhere to. 05 JAN 2017 Date of issue 05 Jan + 19 days ( 5 day for service + 14 days to acknowledge) = 23 Jan + 14 days to submit defence = 6 Feb (33 days in total) - Correct Think these dates are correct. What is the claim for – the reason they have issued the claim? Please type out their particulars of claim in full (verbatim) less any identifiable data and round the amounts up/down. Monies due under current account account overdraft. The Claimant's claim is for the balance outstanding under a Bank account facility LLOYDS BANK agreed to maintain fir the Defendant. It was a term of the Bank account that any debit balance would be repayable by the defendant in full on demand. The defendant has failed to repay the amount due. The debt was assigned to the claimant. THE CLAIMANT THEREFORE CLAIMS 1100 What is the value of the claim? 1100 Is the claim for a current account (Overdraft) or credit/loan account or mobile phone account? Current account When did you enter into the original agreement before or after 2007? Account was opened in 2001 but not sure what year the overdraft was arranged. Has the claim been issued by the original creditor or was the account assigned and it is the Debt purchaser who has issued the claim. Debt purchaser Were you aware the account had been assigned – did you receive a Notice of Assignment? Probably, I'm not sure I don't recall Did you receive a Default Notice from the original creditor? Probably, I'm not sure I don't recall Have you been receiving statutory notices headed “Notice of Default sums” – at least once a year ? Not sure Why did you cease payments? Following a relationship breakdown in 2010 I was unable to maintain repayments to creditors. I entered DMP with Payplan 2011 but due to health problems in 2016 and a reduction in income I was no longer able to maintain DMP payments and the arrangement ended. I set up a reduced agreement with my creditors but missed this one. What was the date of your last payment? March 2016 Was there a dispute with the original creditor that remains unresolved? No Did you communicate any financial problems to the original creditor and make any attempt to enter into a debt management plan? Yes DMP arrangement was in place until March 2016. Ive looked through the forum and began the acknowledgment of service (defend all) and I've got my CPR request letter ready to be posted. the bit I'm not sure about is the I intend to contest jurisdiction tick box. I'm not sure what this means and should I tick it or not? Thanks

I'm in the process of writing a CCA request, can anyone give me some help with what else I need to do please?
  17. Morning all, Just wondering if anyone can see anything wrong with this agreement which might render it unenforecable? Thought i had read something a while back regarding the ppi needing to be outlined seperately as opposed to being set out as here. If there anything else anyone can see is not right also, please say. This might be a bit of a tricky one if is not enforecable (long story) will fill peeps in at later date once know basics of where stand with it. Many many thanks as always, Mpols x im very aware how busy the forums are at the mo, so just going to bump until someone has a few mins. Many thanks Mpols x
  18. Hi guys, i'll try and sum my issue up quickly. Sept 2007 got hp with funding corporation for a vehicle for 4 years and stopped paying after 18 ish months. Stupidly made a payment in November 2011. Defaults were served and agreement cancelled by OC in 2009 Cabot sent letters for about 12 months that I did not reply to. Mortimer clark made contact with me threatening legal action at the end of January this year. Made SAR at the beginning feb this year to funding corp - THIS WAS FULFILLED AND i RECEIVED THE SAR Made CCA request to cabot - THIS HAS NOT YET BEEN FULFILLED AND IT'S NOW MAY. NOW called today both Cabot and Mortimer Clarke. (this is the issue along with my big mouth) to tell them my new address. asked Mortimer Clarke the status of the account (it's on hold), asked them that they I expect a responce to the CCA request and let slip that I already had the original T&C's from the OC (I really did not want to say that) called back to see if they had actioned the cca request and they said It's gone through (not quite sure what that meant) If they do Correctly action the CCA request then I may have an upper hand. The OC and Lowell took me to court and the outcome was that I return the vehicle there was no judgement for money owed. I did not return the vehicle. I wonder if it can still be taken to court?
  19. I have received documentation from Mortimer Clarke solicitors on behalf or Cabot relating to an old Halifax credit card. They are giving me 14 days to contact them before threatening to take court action. Would the appropriate course of action be to send a CCA request to Cabot with a copy to Mortimer Clarke? Also, does sending a CCA to Cabot constitute a communication that would reset the statute barred date? Thanks very much.
  20. Please help, I recently attend a county court for claim made against me by Mortimer/Cabot to be set aside. this is going to be a lengthy story but please bear with me . My story below; I obtained a vanquis credit credit in 2007. The limit was £1800, but I did not realise that they have increased my APR from 19.9% to 29.9% without any notification from them .i realised nearly a year they have done so and that was in 2009, I gave them a call immediately to find out why, but their response was they will investigate and get back to me but they never did. I called them on numerous occasions but I never get an answer why the APR was increased without any notification. I wrote them in 2010 after months of calling that I will stop paying them if they don't tell me why they increased my APR without any notification and that was exactly what I did. The last correspondence I had with Vanquis was in 2011. At this time the debt on my account was £1258 I moved out of that address in June 2014 to a new address. I found out in January 2016 on my credit file that the CCJ was set against in me in July 2015 for the total debt of £3909, I immediately file for a dispute and explained the reasons above and Noddle credit agency got back to me saying I should contact Cabot which I failed to do because I didn't want to have any conversation with them. I received a notice Attachment of Earnings from the county court in November 2016 which I provided and I did applied for the case to be set aside also. Judge dismissed this case and ask me to arrange a payment plan with Mortimer/Cabot. I thought the judge was very unfair, he did not listen to any of my reasons, despite that I have tenancy agreement that proof that I moved out of the old address and that I did not receive any letter prior to CCJ, he did not even look at my documents. He said I should have contacted the court in January 2016 when I found out on my credit file and that I should have contacted vanquis also of my changed address. Thank you for patience for taking your time to read this lengthy story. Please your advice on How do I moved forward from here. Thanks
  21. hey all i'm once again finding yorkshire bank causing me a troubling time. i had an overdraft of £500 with my YB current account. they wanted me to pay it back when i was in financial difficulties (the best timing). i made an arrangement of £20 a month but i paid £30 a month into the current account with the £10 covering interest. this all whilst on jsa too. i struggled paying that along with other arrangements i made with them. ..i was really naive about what i could offer them but once i got advice on it, i simply told them that i could no longer afford the arrangement and it was apparently passed onto collections. i don't understand it but my current account has now been closed. i was expecting a refund of charges after a decision made by the Fos into that account. the first instalment was made but nothing after and after making an of offer of payment of £1 a month, i have had an acceptance of that offer from a solicitors of yb i think but the amount is a lot higher. there's some letter and other charges apparently but the balance makes no mention of the refund i'm owed. so what should i do? i personally was thinking i'd outline all of this in a letter but i wanted to get some advice first as when it came to my fos decision, i wish i'd taken some help from here as the amount is nothing compared to what i was really owed but because i was none the wiser, i just thought it a really good offer at the time clueless me. ahh well..live 'n learn eh edit: i forgot to mention that i have a deadline for this token payment offer. should i try and resolve the amount first and then pay or make the payments £1 offer in the meantime? thanks in advance for any help
  22. Hello need some help with a CCJ letter received today from Mortimer Clarke, for what they say is a 2012 mobile phone account with EE that I can not remember ever having. I have had previous letters but not knowing what they were for just ignored them. It say I have 14 days to reply to the court letter or pay in full with their 75 pound charges on top what can I do. Regards Jdene
  23. Hello everybody I hope you can help me, today I received a letter from DLC regarding a very old debt from Black Horse Ltd (original loan was taken out through Chartered Trust way back in 2000/2001) with the amount owing of £1,886.59. The letter is as follows: Dear XXXX Your account County Court Claim Number XXXXXXXX We have been trying to work with you in resolution to the above claim for which we have obtained a County Court Judgement. As there is still a balance outstanding, your account has been placed with Cabot Financial (Europe) Limited to act as the agent servicing your account. Their next step is to pass your account to Mortimer Clarke Solicitors. What will the Solicitors do? Mortimer Clarke Solicitors will write to you and explain that they have been instructed to continue court proceedings against you if you do not contact them. They will explain the need for legal action to progress. We hope that you will enter into a payment arrangement that you can afford in order to prevent the need for legal action to progress. You can call Mortimer Clarke Solicitors on 0333 XXX XXXX Your new reference number is XXXXXXXX Now I have not had any paper work from the County Court, the letter I received from DLC is stated as being generated on 11/07, also I thought that a solicitor would have to issue the paperwork to the court for a Claim to be issued even though according to the letter my account is to be passed to Mortimer Clarke? The interesting part of this letter is that they hope that I will enter into a repayment agreement, could this be a trick that DLC/Cabot could be trying to pull?. I have requested a copy of the claim form from DLC as I have not received this and I have also asked for a copy of the original credit agreement and a statement of account confirming when the last payment was made, I have not had any communication from DLC for ages until today. I have checked my credit file and there is no CCJ registered and I am thinking about contacting the County Court Bulk Center to confirm the Claim Number. I hope somebody can help and advise me as I am very concerned. Many Thanks
  24. Hi, Received two letters today: One from Mortimer Clarke Solicitors (dated 28/01/2016) Re: Cabot indicating that they have received no response to the claim form issued.( I was going to ignore it until I looked at the second letter...) Letter Two: Judgment for Claimant (in default), from the County Court, dated 28/02/2016 Claimant: Cabot Financial (UK) Ltd. I checked my credit file using Noddle: It shows one active credit card which is OK and currently active. Then .. Starting from Oct 2015 to Dec 2015 there is an entry for Cabot with a Default for each month. There is nothing else there, no balance history . The account details state that it is a credit card , defaulted 25/04/2010 - Balance: £680. Account start date 11/04/2008. On public information there is a CCJ from 28/02/2016. I had two credit cards back then , one I know was paid off, the other obviously was not. I think it may have been a Capital One credit card. I have never received a Claim form and have not had any dealings with Cabot. I have not had a Notice of Assignment . Should I contact to Court to apply for the Judgment to be set aside because I did not receive the Claim Form and have no proof that I owe Cabot anything? Can I get a copy of the Claim Form? (i feel disadvantaged because they seem to have all the information whereas I have none) Should then CCA Cabot and CPR 31:14 Mortimer Clarke? Any help or guidance greatly appreciated .... Thanks.
  25. Morning, folks. I'm in a particularly odd and confusing situation so any assistance in clarifying where exactly I stand would be greatly appreciated. In 2010 I took out a credit card with Virgin Money. In 2012 I defaulted on this due to financial difficulty and depression. I do not remember receiving a default notice from Virgin Money. It's possible I received a default notice from MBNA, but I closed an account with them in 2006 (I have the letter) so would have discounted it. In January of 2017 I found out a CCJ was registered against me with Hillesden Securities as the claimant. I did not receive any correspondence prior to it being registered, as I was not living at the address the CCJ is registered at. As soon as I found out about the CCJ (through a mortgage adviser telling me!) I attempted to contact Hillesden. This led me to DLC, which led me to Cabot, which led me to Mortimer Clarke. I spoke to a representative of theirs on the phone, explained the situation and asked if the judgement could be set aside. They said no, and that the best I could do was satisfy the CCJ. After some digging online I sent an N244 to my local court and received a hearing date. Mortimer Clarke did not show, the judge decided they hadn't been very helpful, and duly set aside the judgement. Happy days. This was earlier this month. Today I found a letter sent from Mortimer Clarke 4 days before the hearing, with the claimant now being ME III Ltd. The letter states they agree to the setting aside but that a full defense should be submitted within 21 days. They attached a draft order, assuming that the judge would made this order. She didn't. What happens now? Given that the draft order was not formalised, I'm assuming I do not have to submit any further defense (which I already submitted in full as part of the N244). And what are Mortimer Clarke likely to do when they receive the actual order from the court? Many thanks
