Hi

i wondered if anyone can provide any advice on how to proceed.

My husband received a letter from Yuill and Kyle in january regarding a debt with lowell portfolio

after reading advice on here

i sent off a CCA request on 3rd of february by recorded delivery

and enclosed a postal order for the required fee.

I also sent a letter to yuill and kyle

telling them we had requested this information from lowell.

These were signed for and we have heard nothing since.

Yesterday a letter arrived from Yuill and Kyle stating the following:

 

Dear Sir

 

Lowell Portfolio I Ltd v You

 

Should you not dispute the debt then you are now liable to pay

the sum shown below which included Judicial Expenses.

To avoid decree passing against you then please return the slip below with your remittance.

Failure to do so will mean decree passing against you and our instructing sheriff officers t

o recover the principle, judicial expense along with sheriff officer fees.

 

Finally

we refer you to the court documents now served upon you

which details your right to make representations to the court

and if appropriate to pay the debt by instalments.

You are always able to contact us to discuss a payment arrangement

with you based on your circumstances and then put to our client for consideration.

 

Yours faithfully

 

Yuill and Kyle

 

3***** Lowell portfolio 1 ltd v Mr ************* *********

 

Principle due : £****.**

Judicial Expenses: £***.**

Total Due: £****.**

 

Im unsure as how to proceed next

we have received no court papers as yet

but i believed when a CCA was not supplied then no further action

could be taken until these were produced?

 

Any help gratefully received

Check with the central court in Scotland, as to whether a claim has been made against you.

 

The letter appears to suggest that the court claim has already happened.

We could do with some help from you.

Royal Mail tried to deliver a signed for item we were at work

and it turns out it was a court summons for my husband.

 

The debt was littlewoods catalogue and was taken out in 2007

 

when I look on my husbands credit report I'm confused as the default was issued in 2009 by Lowell

but there is no account information by either them or littlewoods before this

in fact littlewoods aren't there at all.

 

I sent a letter recorded to yuill and kyle last tuesday enclosing the letter we sent to Lowell for cca

which we received no reply to and I've had no response from yuill and kyle.

 

My husband is calling the local court today to try to see what's going on.

 

Any advice on how to proceed would be greatly appreciated

husband called local court

 

they said there is an "outlying form" there no idea what this is??

 

But no action has been brought as yet

 

the summons will have come from yuill and kyle

and the post office returned this to them last week when it failed to be delivered.

 

I'm going to get my husband to call littlewoods tonight when he gets home

to see if he can find out anymore account information from them we know

he didn't sign an actual credit agreement through the post it was an online account application

as he can recall.

 

If anyone can let me know anything else I can do that would be great.

Hi,

 

You say you have not received any court papers, a copy of the summons will have to be served, if not by post the Sheriff Officers can hand deliver the summons either by handing it in at the door or posting it through the letter box.

 

I'm taking it this will be a small claim summons depending of the value of the outstanding debt, with any summons there will be two important dates, being the return date and calling date. Usually the return date is the day when the defender must return any document to the court whilst the calling date (always 7 days after the return date) is the date the case will call in court for a hearing.

 

If the claim is undisputed, the pursuer can ask for judgment (known as minuting for decree) by completing a pre-printed form. Judgment will be granted at the ‘calling date’.

 

Do you intend to dispute the claim ?

 
 

Any advice I give is honest and in good faith.:)

Hi sorry for late reply didn't realise there had been any responses.

 

The sherriff officer has just delivered the court papers to me today.

 

We do not dispute the debt

 

but we dispute the amount it has gone from £700 to £1150 then there will still be court costs added.

 

We cannot afford to pay the debt off in one go

 

I don't know if they will accept £50 a month or not.

 

The last payment on the account was dec 2009

 

Not quite sure how to fill in the paperwork

 

the sherriff officer was very nice said my husband should visit citizens advice and also this website.

 

I had no reply to any of my letters to yuill and kyle or lowell which were sent 2 weeks ago.

 

Not sure how to proceed ???

Hi I sent the CCA request to Lowell Portfolio at the start of February and

 

i also sent a letter to yuill and kyle on the same day to inform them that i had done this.

 

have received no reply from lowell at all (altho when my husband called today seemingly it was an invalid ref no.

This was the one on the orignial letters)

 

My parents say they will pay the debt for us if we can get them to reduce the amount

 

my husband called lowell but they stated the account was with yuill and kyle now and they could do nothing.

 

Should we defend based on no CCA or will yuill and kyle accept a reduced figure?

defend it

 

even if it proves enforceable you can come to an agreement afterwards.

 

so why cant you find the true account number? credit file?

 

I strongly advise not speaking on the phone

 

you need a papertrail.

they gave my husband the account number over the phone.

 

so what should i put on the court papers in order to defend it?

 

i looked at his credit file on noddle and there are just stars where the account number should be

 

i've looked out the littlewoods statements and the account number we had was the littlewoods account number

 

this was also quoted on our letters from yuill and kyle so they've obviously only recently changed the account number

can scan them up:??

 

**you can post up images/letters by this method immediately..you don't need 10 posts**

.

set your default scan page size to A4 less than 300DPI [150 will do]

scan the required letters/agreements/sheets - as a picture[jpg] file

don't forget you can use a mobile phone or a digital camera too!!

'

BUT......

ENSURE: remove all pers info inc. barcodes etc

but leave all monetary figures and dates.

Even if you lose the case you can make an application to enter into a Debt Arrangement Scheme

to block enforcement action such as wages or Bank account arrestment.

 

This way you can take care of the liability over an extended period at an affordable level.

 

I am not aware of your circumstances but this could be a better option than Time to Pay.

 

Should you lose the case the pursuer will need to serve a Charge For Payment,

 

If you decide to enter into DAS request through a free advice agency that an intimation is made in advance of the 14 day expiry date of the Charge.

 

I hope this information is useful should your defence fail.

Hi Suzi

 

I've just joined this group as I was looking for some info myself!

 

I appreciate what has been said above, but if you do not dispute the original debt is due you will have a hard time defending it, because there is no defence and you would be lying to the court to do so, in itself a criminal offence.

 

If you do dispute the debt, or want more info, have a look on the Scottish Courts website for guidance notes on what to do with the small claims summons.

 

I know how Yuill and Kyle and other similar firms operate. If you can't dispute the principal debt (as you've said) your best bet may be to try and seek a waiver of some of the additional costs and/or ask the court for time to pay.

 

The other option would be to make an offer to Yuill and Kyle in full and final settlement of maybe half of the total being claimed, but being careful to say that the offer was not an admission of liability and that the sum offered is all you could afford.

  • 3 weeks later...

I understand what you're saying

we dispute the amount being claimed and so far Lowell nor yuill and kyle have provided any documentation to state how much the debt was purchased for or any agreement at all to say they do infact own the debt.

 

starting to get nervous now

still no reply to the sar request

apart from a letter from yuill and kyle stating they had passed this on to Lowel

 

l. But when my husband had called Lowell originally

they said yuill and kyle had full charge of the account

 

I feel like they are both passing the buck here.

 

6 days until court papers are to be submitted what do I write on them??

 

I've no idea. If someone could help that would be great.
