I recieved a stat demand (by post) from Largo Law regarding a debt which is some 10 years or so old - the problem is I MAY have made payments in the interim (usual case of being telephoned 6 times a day etc etc).

 

I have requested information re a CCA but interestingly they have told me that the court to apply to get the stat demand set aside is "Worthing County Court" - on phoning Worthing County Court I was told that they dont even deal with insolvency / bankrupcies !!!!

 

Clearly this is just used as a threat by Largo Law HOWEVER I am very worried about it and what do I do now ? Worthing County Court have said it was nothing to do with them so I really am a bit stuck ?

 

Thankyou very much indeed for any help in advance ?

Hi - thankyou very much indeed for taking the time to reply.

 

On the letter it says Worthing county Court BUT when I phoned them up they said they did NOT deal with insolvency ?

 

I therefore asume that it is just a "scare tactic" BUT it really is very worrying as ihave read on other threads how this compnay DO in fact go for Bankruptcy ?

Any other ideas on this - do you think I should just try and set it aside in ANY court that DOES deal with insolvency OR just leave it as Worthing County Court (who are listed on the demand) are adamant that they do NOT deal with insolvency ?

 

Many thanks indeed

You need to set aside at your closest court that does handle bankruptcies and insolvencies....and you need to do it within 18 days of the date you received it. What you MUST also do is report this to the OFT too. Another debt collection agency was given a slap by the OFT for not being serious about statutory demands -

OFT imposes requirements on 1st Credit over debt collection practices - The Office of Fair Trading - (as you can see it is a clear breach of compliance with the OFT giudelines, and their compliance department are obviously not complying with previous warnings) your reasons for setting aside are the lack of attempted service of the demand i.e. they have made no effort to make any kind of personal service on you. There is a potential abuse of the process by putting the wrong court on the demand. the aleged debt is statute barred...plus all the other potential reasons, no default notice in the prescribed form, no agreement, no notice of assignment, no deed of assignment....IMO you should take this to court and get a judge to dismiss it and claim back your costs, do have a look through some of the stat demand threads here - you will need to fill out forms 6.4 (set aside) and 6.5 (affadavit) and get them sworn in either at the court you are applying to (this is usually free) or you can get a local solicitor to do it (they usually charge £5 to do this) -
