This is what surfaceagent mentioned in another post.

 

Further still Order 2(3)(a) of the 1991 Order states in relation to a judgment of any value (ie a judgment whether or not it is more than £5,000.00), that 'Interest shall not be payable under this Order where the relevant judgment is given in proceedings to recover money due under an agreement regulated by the Consumer Credit Act 1974'

 

The recovery of any post-judgment interest is thus restrained by [1] s69(4) of the 1984 Act and [2] the 1991 Order.

If this is true then why the hell are the solicitors in my claim charging 30.9% on a debt which I had as a storecard. Judgment is by instalments. No agreement attached to the POC so cant check. Have requested but their reply - it is in a lock up somewhere and will take weeks to get it.

Did the Judge in his judgment order allow the creditor to continue to add contractual interest to the debt? Is there anywhere within the POC where the claimant has asked for the interest to be continued post judgement?

A couple of hundred years ago Meyer Amshel, (1743-1812), founder of the Rothschild dynasty is reported to have told his five sons, “Let me control a nation’s money and I care not who writes its laws”.

This is from Chapter 14 of the Consumer Credit Act 2006

After section 130 of the 1974 Act insert—

“Interest

130A Interest payable on judgment debts etc.

(1) If the creditor or owner under a regulated agreement wants to be able to recover from the debtor or hirer post-judgment interest in connection with a sum that is required to be paid under a judgment given in

relation to the agreement (the ‘judgment sum’), he—

(a) after the giving of that judgment, shall give the debtor or hirer
a notice under this section (the ‘first required notice’); and

(b) after the giving of the first required notice, shall give the debtor
or hirer further notices under this section at intervals of not

(2) The debtor or hirer shall have no liability to pay post-judgment interest in connection with the judgment sum to the extent that the interest is calculated by reference to a period occurring before the day on which

he is given the first required notice.

 

(3) If the creditor or owner fails to give the debtor or hirer a notice under this section within the period of six months beginning with the day after the day on which such a notice was last given to the debtor or hirer, the debtor or hirer shall have no liability to pay post-judgment interest in connection with the judgment sum to the extent that the interest is calculated by reference to the whole or to a part of the period

Hi Doc,

 

Nothing on the judgment order mentions interest just the amount to be paid each month.

 

The POC of claim states interest accruing at the rate of 30.9% until payment!! As I said I cant check the interest on the CCA as I dont have it, it was not attached to the POC and the solicitors say it will take weeks to find it.

Hi HH,

 

On your Judgement for Claimant (after determination) order dated 24 Sep 08 it states 'You must pay the claimant £XXX for debt (and interest to date of judgement) and .....'

 

That statement I've highlighted may be of significance. It would seem to me to suggest that the Judge was only going to allow interest to be charged up until the date of the judgement. This would tie in with what surfaceagentx20 has said in that extract you posted earlier. It might be worth getting his opinion.

 

Obvously you still need to get hold of the CCA to see if the terms and conditions allow them to add post judgement contractual interest.
