All documents are here: http://www.scotcourts.gov.uk/rules-and-practice/rules-of-court/sheriff-court---civil-procedure-rules/simple-procedure-rules Below are those relevant to DCA/Debt Buyer Claims with specifics highlighted within them. Some interesting musings... The DCA HAS to state the documents they intend to rely upon within their claim. [box E2] It is heavily directed toward the claimant/respondent dealing with this via ADR outside of court There are no immediate court hearings/if any at all...the sheriff is directed to r
  2. Hi I received some excellent advice from CAG after I had some major employment and debt issues between 2008 and 2011 which resulted in a number of my accounts defaulting, once again I am in need of assistance please. One of the alleged debts I defaulted on was in respect of a BOS Credit Card, under duress I continued paying £1 per month until August 2016 when it was sold to Cabot Financial. The balance claimed is around £4k. Cabot quickly passed the account to Restons who wrote in February 17 threatening legal action to which I issued an unsigned CCA request together with a £1
  3. I've been sent the data, having sent a SAR to BoS. This credit card ran from 1993 to 2003. There's about £800 worth of PPI payments on there, but when I put the transactions into the calculator at 24.9% contractual rate, the claim figure comes out at over £15000..... That seems excessive and I'm just wondering if I've put the wrong figure in or if anyone else has had success with a claim this size. Here's the big question.... Is 24.9% the right figure? I'm told it was but have no proof, and there's no interest figures on the monthly statements. Does anyone know if this

  6. Having previously never been in trouble in my 54 years I got caught shoplifting in Dec 2016 and was given a fiscal fine in February 2017 which would stay on my record for 2 years. I cannot explain why though I did this again in ASDA in December 2018 (within the 2 years) stealing an SD card with a value of £11 which I didn’t need nor have used. This was seen on CCTV with the police identified me from my car number plate in the car park after which they asked me to attend the police station last week and charged me with the offence. They said as my fiscal fine was still within th
  7. Hello all, My daughter has a joint account with her ex that she wishes to have her name removed from but the Bank/Halifax are making it difficult. Her ex left earlier this year and moved back to Scotland and left her with debts and a load of other problems which she has slowly managed to get sorted. She had to give up her courier job to look after the two children(6 and 4 yrs) and so has had to claim IS. However, due to this joint account the IS people are making it difficult to get the benefit and this has been ongoing since March. After many calls to the IS they said she

  10. Haven't been on here in some time, so I hope I'm posting this in the right place! Background I left the UK for the US in October 1999, at which time I had several hundred pounds in Council Tax owing. Only thing that's been heard since was in 2004 when a DCA (I think it was BCW) wrote to me at my Daughter's address - I have an uncommon surname and I think they were chancing their arm. She wrote back to the effect that she had opened the letter in error, I wasn't resident there and never had been, and that she believed I had left the country several years previously.
  11. Hi I am looking for information held about me from social services before and after I was adopted. I was adopted in 2007 when I was 9. I was adopted along with my 2 brothers. I understand there may be implications for access to data relating to either of them. Is it as easy as sending a SAR's to the heads of childrens and families in the area I was from and the area I was adopted to i,e Inverclyde council and South lanarkshire council. Any help and advice is appreciated. Both my birth mother and adopted mother now have dementia so the option of asking either is no longer a

  13. Hi folks, I know there are a couple of threads on similar topics, but this one is specifically about Scotland where rules may be different. I received a letter from sheriff's court demanding payment for 20+ parking tickets (almost £2500) issued in early 2015. These were for on street parking in Dundee city centre where I was living at the time. I didn't get any ticket on my car at the time, nor any correspondence in the post either at the time or at any stage over the past 3 years. They all occur over a 3 month period (March - May 2015), and I was still resident in Dundee unt
  14. On applying my GP informed for all records it would be £50.00. I explained I didn’t need access to all, the problem I was trying to resolve occurred sometime between 2010-15. I was given a date for viewing, when I arrived there the GP had printed off letters in advance - 38 in total. 20 of these I already had – 2 were irrelevant and 2 was just my registration details. I said I would need to take them home and read them, she tried to convince me to stay and read them there – I stayed approx 30-45 mins. I did not view records online. A few days later I received an i
  15. Received a yellow PCN whilst in retail park 3/1/18. Yellow one from VCS. I was parked in the Disabled bay and in a rush. Placed my badge, not right down at the window, because I can't reach it to put it away. Saw the PCN, opened the car door and the badge was on the floor. Unfortunately I did say I was driving and sent copy blue badge. I have sent two letters to VCS and the one I got last week said I still had to pay and I could still pay the original amount of £60. This is stressing me out, sleepless nights, worrying and causing my asthma to flare up. Not good at
  16. Hello Everyone I started getting letters from Nolans probably around 2 months ago about a Personal Loan debt that was from years ago. The debt is not on any of my credit files so it was a surprise to get a letter from a sols about it. Its a Sainsbury's Bank Loan for £16k that i took out on 9/7/09, very shortly after (around 6 months lost my job). I had been making token payments of £20 per month to originally Blair Oliver & Scott who after around 1 year, passed the debt to Cabot around Nov 2011. I continued the £20 per month till around Jan 2016 then I lost
  17. Hey, Today I received a penalty charge notice from my local authority whilst parked on a marked bay with a single yellow line with a time restriction on it. (30 mins) The Ticket I have been issued causes me some issues and feel that there is key information missing from it. Would be grateful if anyone can assist. The ticket I have offers no details regards my rights to appeal. The only reference to appeal the ticket makes is that it is "not possible to pay the reduced charge and appeal against the Penalty charge notice."... Surely that can't be right? its well docu

  19. Hi all, Well... this one has been going on for sometime, and there's definitely been some skullduggery going on. so I thought I'd ask for opinions on the matter. The issue concerns a £6K HSBC credit card debt and crosses borders! Around the time I went to university I opened a HSBC account along with a credit card (2003). This account was opened in England. Fast forward a few years to 2009 and I (like many) was a victim of the financial crisis and back home with Ma and Pa, now living in the Scottish Highlands. I managed to keep repayments up until early 2010 when it was no

  21. Hello. I apparently have £12k Council Tax arrears. I recently got a Sheriff Officer hand delivered letter demanding payment within 14 days. The arrears start from 2002 until 2018. I have 4 questions. 1)If I was not living in the property, (housing association) during the time of the invoices, but still on the voters roll (and tenancy agreement), do I still owe these arrears? (I can prove I was living at another address for several years, under a separate Council Authority). 2) If I made myself bankrupt, can I include all of this 'debt' under it? 3) How can I s
  22. Hi everyone, I am about to make a claim against the above. I have received claim doc from BoS to fill and return within 14days.
