I've just received court summons from Bryan Carter through the Northampton County Court for an outstanding debt on an Egg Card. We are currently on a Debt Management Plan with Payplan and have been making regular payments against this debt and continue to do so.

 

Can anyone offer advice on filing a defence?

If what we say helps you, then please tip the scales.:cool:

particulars of claim - what the court sent you, does the figure match what you actually may owe

 

and dont send it of to payplan they will just admit it for you, and you would end up with a ccj

PGH7447

I should point out that according to PayPlan our payments are being paid to Egg via Direct Legal and Collections. Bryan Carter are acting on behalf of Fredrickson Int who claimed the debt was sent to them to collect. As I haven't received any notification from Egg that the debt has been assigned to Fredrickson and neither has Payplan we have continued paying Egg through DLC.

Northampton is the DCA's head threat centre.

Its worth pointing out that Carter are notorious for sending out documents that look like they've come from a court, when nothing could be furthur from reality.

If its from a proper court, then it will give you various sections of advice/what to do/were to get in touch with etc...

No court would just demand the full amount off you just like that.

Thats not how the legal system works & maybe Carter should realize that :cool:

I should also point out that the POC lists the claimant as Egg Banking PLC, but I can prove that EGG has been receiving regular payments through PayPlan at an amount agreed between themselves and Payplan.

The summons does indeed come with all the other documents, I also tried phoning the helpline and it is Northampton CC.

Well in that case, it will (or should have) a section requiring you to fill in all i & e details....

If so, then include bills,clothes,food,travel costs etc...all classed as legal essentials.

Ive never known a court to require receipts for the amount of food you buy - or for any of them in my experience.

Therefore, im sure you can do the maths beforehand & easily just have a £1 leftover?

In the eyes of the law, you are deemed to be paying something ;)

Yes I did and I received a copy of the agreement with my signature on, which is what I requested when they first started threatening legal action. I haven't got a copy of payments received against the account though.

This just sounds like a case of Carter chancing his arm via Northampton etc...

If you are already re-paying an amount then it is crazy to have to repay someone else at the same time.

Carter & Northampton need to be made aware of this situation ASAP and if they dont want to know, then i would seek your own legal advice.

This is in acknowledgement of your letter dated 12th May 2009, The contents of which have been duly noted.

Nevertheless in my response to your letter please be advised of the following.

 

I put forward that you now have a requirement to provide me with;

 

1) A true copy of the executed credit agreement and any terms and conditions that applied to the account at the time of default and at the time the account was opened.

You will need to edit this, send by recorded to the claimants solicitor and keep the receipt

 

 

Dear Sir,

 

Re: (Claimant's name) v (Your name) Case No:

CPR 31.14 Request

 

On (date) I received the Claim Form in this case issued by you out of the (Name) County Court.

 

I confirm having returned my acknowledgement of service to the court in which I indicate my intention to contest all of your claim.

 

[Prior to the issue of proceedings I had delivered a request for the production of the agreement mentioned in the Claim Form and on which you rely. That request was ignored][delete if no such request was delivered]

 

Please treat this letter as my request made under CPR 31.14 for the disclosure and the production of a verified and legible copy of [each of the following / the] document(s) mentioned in your Particulars of Claim:

 

1 the agreement. You will appreciate that in an ordinary case and by reason of the provisions of CPR PD 16 para 7.3, where a claim is based upon a written agreement, a copy of the contract or documents constituting the agreement should be attached to or served with the particulars of claim and the original(s) should be available at the hearing. Further, that any general conditions incorporated in the contract should also be attached.

 

2 the default notice*

 

* delete if not mentioned in the Particulars of claim.

 

[Although your claim is for a sum which is not more than £5,000.00 and will in all likelihood be allocated to the small claims track for determination upon my delivering a defence, at this moment in time I have not delivered my defence and the case has not been allocated to a track. In consequence the provisions of CPR 27(2) are of no effect and you should not seek to avoid compliance with your CPR 31 duties by claiming otherwise]#

 

# delete if claim for a sum exceeding £5,000.00

 

You should ensure compliance with your CPR 31 duties and ensure that the document(s) I have requested are copied to and received by me within 7 days of receiving this letter. Your CPR 31 duties extend to making a reasonable and proportionate search for the originals of the documents I have requested, the better for you to be able to verify the document's authenticity and to provide me with a legible copy. Further, where I have requested a copy of a document, the original of which is now in the possession of another person, you will have a right to possession of that document if you have mentioned it in your case. You must take immediate steps to recover and preserve it for the purpose of this case.

 

Where I have mentioned a document and there is in your possession more than one version of that same document owing to a modification, obliteration or other marking or feature, each version will be a separate document and you must provide a copy of each version of it to me. Your obligations extend to making a reasonable and proportionate search for any version(s) to include an obligation to recover and preserve such version(s) which are now in the possession of a third party.

 

In accordance with CPR 31.15© I undertake to be responsible for your reasonable copying costs incurred in complying with this CPR 31.14 request.

 

If you require more time in which to comply with this request you must tell me in writing. You must tell me before the time for compliance with this request has expired. In telling me you require more time you must tell me what steps you have taken and propose to take in order to comply with this request and also state a date by when you will comply with this request. In addition your statement must be accompanied with a statement that you agree to an extension of the time for me to file my defence. Your extension of time must be not less than 14 days from the date when you say you will have complied with my request and you must state the new date for filing my defence.

 

If you are unable to comply with this request and believe that you will never be able to comply with this request you must tell me in writing.

 

Please note that if you should fail to comply with this request, fail to request more time or fail to agree to an extension of time for the filing of my defence, I will make an application to the court for an order that the proceedings be struck out or stayed for non-compliance and a summary costs order.

 

I do hope this will not be necessary and look forward to hearing from you.

 

yours faithfully

 

 

 

CARTER WONT REPLY SO WE JUST THEN GO WITH AN EMBARRASED DEFENCE, THEN AS A NORM, CARTER WILL GIVE UP

Ill Update Your Thread With A Cpr Request To Send To Carter If A Mod Does Not Do It First

 

Job's a good 'un.

 

If Bryan Carter sent me details of payments received, as requested, it would show that I have been paying them.

Carter Will Send You Nothing

 

He Never Does

We Then Use That Against Him In Court

 

It says in the above letter that I will file defence against the whole claim, in that case do I fill in the income/expenditure form?

If what we say helps you, then please tip the scales.:cool:

You 1st need to find out if a proper court has sent you this document or not?

Its not unlike the industry to fake these things.

If it has come from an official court, then you need to contact them to inform them that you are already repaying & get advice from there....
