    • Thank you for the above Andy. I’ve not stated to Shoosmiths that I have not signed the agreement, however at the time I didn’t really understand the agreement, it was just put in from of me, and told to sign. I did also sign a document saying it did not require legal representation.   What would you suggest as my next steps? 
    • Barclays have finally responded to my friend on this asking for  Date of birth, all previous addresses, any former names and account numbers she has.   I don’t think my friend included a council tax bill (I did when I sent my Dad’s DSAR to Barclays last week!).   Do they need all this info?
    • There is no statutory provision requiring a witness in these circumstances to be independent. However the purpose of having a witness is so that they can provide unbiased evidence of what was signed and by whom, if required in the future. Therefore a witness should be independent and it is best practice to interpret this widely. A witness should not be the signatory’s spouse or partner or a family member, and should not have a personal interest in the provisions of the document. Case law has confirmed that a party to the document cannot act as a witness to another party’s signature. It is advisable that a witness is aged eighteen or over.   More importantly ...One of the distinguishing factors about the execution of a deed as compared to a contract is that a deed must be “delivered”. Delivery fixes the date from which the executing party is bound by the deed, and once delivered, a deed is irrevocable in the absence of an express right of revocation. At common law, a deed is delivered when a party expresses an intention to be bound by the deed, even if it retains possession of the document.   The best way to deal with delivery of a deed is to have clear wording in the document setting out that the deed will be delivered on the date appearing at the head of the document. Where a deed is executed by a company, legislation provides that it is presumed to be delivered on execution, unless a contrary intention is proved. There is no such presumption for execution by an individual. Clear wording in the document confirming the position on delivery will avoid confusion and unintended consequences.   https://www.osborneclarke.com/insights/signed-sealed-delivered-execution-of-deeds-and-documents-and-how-it-might-go-wrong/

    • This is a bit of a lengthy one but I’ll summerise best as possible.
       
      THIS IS HOW THE PHONECALL WENT 
       
      I was contacted by future comms by phone, they stated that they could beat any phone contract I have , (I am a limited company but just myself that needs a business phone and I am the only worker) 
      I told future comms my deal, £110 per month with a phone and a virtual landline, they confirmed that they could beat that, £90 per month with a phone , virtual landline  they also confirmed they would pay Vodafone (previous provider) the termination fee. As I am in business, naturally I was open to making a deal. So we proceeded. 
      Future comms then revealed that the contract would be with PLAN.COM and the airtime would be provided by 02, I instantly told them that this would break the deal as I have poor 02 signal in the house where I live as my partner is on 02 and constantly complaining about bad signal
      the salesman assured me he would send a signal booster box out with the phone so I would have perfect signal.
      so far so good.....
      i then explained this is the only mobile phone I use for business and pleasure, so therefore I didn’t want any disconnection time in the slightest between the switchover from Vodafone to 02
      the salesman then confirmed that the existing phone would only be disconnected once the new phone was switched on.
      so far so good....

Hi.

 

Old Egg Debt been round a few DCA and now been sold to AK.

 

Only documents I have had are copy of a agreement not sure if it is enforcable, as other DCA have not persued this but sent it back to EGG.

Also have T & C but seperate and not sure if they relate to this agreement.

Would like a bit of advise on how to proceed.

Agreement attached.

I did pay some token payments in early 2009, but nothing since then.

 

But before that it would have been late 1996

If you hadn't paid anything between 96 and 2009 the debt would of become statute barred in 2002.

 

If a payment is made after a 6-year gap, the Limitations Act 1980 is still enforceable and the debt remains Statute Barred.

Adapt and send the following letter http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/content.php?420-Letter-to-use-if-a-DCA-still-try-to-collect-after-Statute-Barred

 

State that you did not pay or recognise the debt between the period of 1996 and 2009 and that although you paid some token payments in 2009 the Satute of Limitations is still enforcable and therefore you are not obliged to offer any payment and the debt is unenforceable.

 

FYI - A debt is no longer enforcable if the debtor has not offered/ made payment or recognised the debt since the last payment was due in 6 years or more. Although you will still owe the debt, they can not take you to court to enforce the debt

If it is just a copy of the agreement which you did not sign

then the DCA had met their obligations under your CCA request which they are allowed to do by sending a 'Reconstituted Agreement'.

 

But the absence of the actual signed Agreement is relevant. This is the document which will make their claim in a county courtlink3.gif enforceable. Without that the alleged Agreement it is NOT enforceable in Court.

There seems to be a few things missing from the agreement, like credit limit, APR on purchases, cooling off period. Are their separate T&C's available. This should all be included within the four corners of the agreement.

 

I would say this is unenforcable

There are some T & C which are just typed on plane paper, which has the same info which is on the agreement. nothing to ref them to this agreement or agreement to them.

 

The letter which came with stated the following.

Document A - A copy of your original agreement which contains the original interest rates.

Document B - Your current terms and conditions.

Thanks for your help and input Formister.

No problem. I think the clue is the fact that the other DCA's have not been willing to take you to court

I also belive that there should be a right to cancel box,

If there are parts missing does that still mean that they have ment their obligations under the Consumer Credit Act 1974, by sending this.

Sorry Thats what I meant by cooling off / right to cancel. There is no credit limit on the form, the T&C's are not included within the four corners of the agreement.

 

In my opinion this is not an enforcable agreement.

 

They have complied with your CCA request by sending a reconstituted agreement. This doesn't mean you have to pay them, it isn't enforcable.

 

Im sure other CAGGERS will have a look and give you a second opinion

As AK are now asking for payment, would it be best if I send them a Questionable agreement letter,

 

The only thing I have had with relation to them puchasing the debt is a letter from them and a letter came with it from so call Egg. Am I right that I should of had a N.O.A letter from Egg in the right format.

It also state in their letter that interest will be applied till I agree a payment plan, Again can they do this as the agreement was terminated by EGG..

No they shouldn't be charging you interest, the account is in dispute as well so no charges should be added.

 

Yes send them the letter.

 

You don't need to receive notice from egg but you should receive a Notice of Assignment from the DCA

Hi

I have a credit agreement which does not quite match my name ie.

 

Agreement made to Mrs T W Blogs, But I do not have a middle name ie Mrs T Blogs.

I had reported this when I first received the agreement and was told a new one would be sent but never was. also there is no cancellation box on the agreement.

Would this still be enforceable its an old Egg agreement.

Thanks.

I would think the lack of the cancellation box would be more of an issue.. but you would certainly require more.

If there was no cancellation box or cancellation terms then that may possibly be something you should push a little further, as the notice of cancellation rights is prescribed by Consumer Credit (Cancellation Notices And Copies Of Documents Regulations 1983)
