Marlin/Shoosmiths Summary Cause - old LloydsTsb loan

Recommended Posts

Have read that many cases, including this one, for some reason I thought she had suddenly heard from them again this year and didn't go to court or something. Must be someone else. Anyway, I'm going to put something together between tonight and tomorrow and perhaps you could look over it before I hand it in on Friday. Thanks.

Hi, Andy,

 

Used the link you gave to prepare the following. Would be appreciated if you could give feedback and I've added a few questions in bold too :roll:

 

Holding Defence

 

The Defender intimates his intention to defend the action craved for by the Pursuer, Marlin Europe II Limited.

 

On the 02/07/2014 the Defender requested that the Pursuer provide a verified and legible copy of each of the documents mentioned in their Statement of Claim: The Agreement; Statement of Account. This request was made under CPR 31.14. The Pursuer has not made a request to the Defender for more time to comply with the request and as such the Defender expects to receive these documents by the 11/07/2014.

 

On the 07/07/2014 the Defender made a further request that the Pursuer provide a true copy of the credit agreement relating to the account in question under s77/78 of the Consumer Credit Act 1974. The pursuer has until the 21/07/2014 to reply to this request.

 

(Should I add a copies of letters sent - don't think I need to at this point since I think there is a date made for the production of documents from both parties. Hmmmm ... should I mention I have copies then along with receipts and proof of their having received them??? Think I just have this need to say, "You're not the only one with documents!!!" :lol:)

 

On receipt of the aforementioned documents, the Defender, given time to peruse the documents will file a defence. (Should I mention the calling date here???)

 

(Should I mention this?) The Defender has in his possession the original Customer’s Copy of Agreement, which fails to state the total cost of the loan. The Defender also has in his possession an offer of a further loan with the same interest rate which he refused to enter into, now knowing the total cost of undertaking such an agreement.

 

(Can I add a counterclaim similar to this???) The Defender wishes to defend this claim in full and issue a counter claim for damages to the Defender's credit rating that the Pursuer has caused. In this respect the Defender cites the case of Richard Durkin v DSG Retail Limited and HFC Bank plc, (Judgement of Sheriff J.K. Tierney, Sheriffdom of Grampian Highland and Islands at Aberdeen (A187/04)) a copy of which will be provided within the Defender's First Inventory of Productions.

 

In respect whereof

 

 

Signed ......................... ......................... ...............

If you are unable to read over it, don't worry. I will put in the calling date and just leave out the other parts, although I would like to counterclaim! I believe hubby has to sign this letter.

 

Court is only a couple of miles away and I intend to hand this in by hand tomorrow at some point before the close of day. Last question, do I need to hand in 3 copies??? Doesn't ask anywhere that I do.

 

 

Kind regards

Holding Defence

 

The Defender intimates his intention to defend the action craved for by the Pursuer, Marlin Europe II Limited.

 

The Defender accordingly sets out its case below and relies on CPR r 16.5 (3) in relation to any particular allegation to which a specific response has not been made.

 

On the 02/07/2014 the Defender requested that the Pursuer provide a verified and legible copy of each of the documents mentioned in their Statement of Claim: The Agreement; Statement of Account. This request was made under CPR 31.14. The Pursuer has not made a request to the Defender for more time to comply with the request and as such the Defender expects to receive these documents by the 11/07/2014.

 

On the 07/07/2014 the Defender made a further request that the Pursuer provide a true copy of the credit agreement relating to the account in question under s77/78 of the consumer crediticon Act 1974. The pursuer has until the 21/07/2014 to reply to this request.

 

(Should I add a copies of letters sent - don't think I need to at this point since I think there is a date made for the production of documents from both parties. Hmmmm ... should I mention I have copies then along with receipts and proof of their having received them??? Think I just have this need to say, "You're not the only one with documents!!!" ) No not at this stage

 

On receipt of the aforementioned documents, the Defender, given time to peruse the documents will file a defence. (Should I mention the calling date here???) Yes

 

(Should I mention this?) The Defender has in his possession the original Customer’s Copy of Agreement, which fails to state the total cost of the loan. The Defender also has in his possession an offer of a further loan with the same interest rate which he refused to enter into, now knowing the total cost of undertaking such an agreement.No retain that for later never show all your hand at this stage let them disclose what they have first then you can counter it.

 

(Can I add a counterclaim similar to this???) The Defender wishes to defend this claim in full and issue a counter claim for damages to the Defender's credit rating that the Pursuer has caused. In this respect the Defender cites the case of Richard Durkin v DSG Retail Limited and HFC Bank plc, (Judgement of Sheriff J.K. Tierney, Sheriffdom of Grampian Highland and Islands at Aberdeen (A187/04)) a copy of which will be provided within the Defender's First Inventory of Productions. I personally wouldnt ...you will be asked to prove damage.... but if you have evidence its your claim your call

 

In respect where of

On receipt of the aforementioned documents, the Defender, given time to peruse the documents will file a defence for the calling date of 24/07/2014.

 

I made that wee bit up does it really sound ok?

 

 

You are basically stating that should they disclose you would submit a further defence....a tip..you need the courts and the claimant (pursuer) permission to file an amended defence and in England with an application and fee so I would think wisely before leaving that statement in.

I think I just wanted to say that I'll give my real defence when I've read these documents. I'm not really seeing the holding defence as my real defence. In my eyes my real defence is to do with the amount of interest and the fact it wasn't disclosed either orally or in writing at the time of taking out the loan which apparently they should've done at the time and I'm hoping any documents released will support this. I haven't mentioned any of that in the statement because I haven't seen their documents and so I added that wee bit as a way of saying I'll give you my real defence when I've read these other documents. The holding defence to me is just a way of letting them know I intend to defend. Does this make sense? I can be quite pedantic and get myself tied up in knots!

Courts on strike so to hand it in tomorrow. Short letter back from Marlin Financial Services, not Marlin Europe II Ltd., briefly stating they have requested a statement of account and copy of the agreement from the original creditor and to ensure I send all future correspondence to Shoosmiths. They said they received it in their office the 8th despite the fact they signed for it on the 4th. This is in response to the CPR 31.14 request.

 

Also followed your advice and left out the wee extra bit in the holding defence. So it looked just like you advised.

 

Regards

Hi Andy,

 

Just to confirm I handed in defence on Friday. Think I now need to reply to their letter in response to s77 request which held very little if no information and none at all about how long it would take for them to carry out the search. If the account was assigned to them, shouldn't they already be in possession of all the documents necessary? And if they don't possess these documents how can they refer to them in their statement of claim?

Apart from making the request...there should be no further communication with regards to a section 77/78 request...they know their legal responsibilities and consequences of not complying.

Hi, we have court on Thursday. Have had no response to requests for information. Is this all I need to say on the day? Do I need or can I ask for more time? I'm aware they have failed in their duty to provide me information in order to prepare my defence adequately but is it enough for me to just say that? Feeling a wee bit anxious about it all. :/

Well not quite you.... must reiterate as to why the court cant enforce any relief whilst the claimant is in default of your requests...look at the CCA 1974 and sections 78 and the consequences of none compliance...print it off for your day and retain with you for reference.

Ok, Andy, thanks. You may remember I did receive a very brief reply to the CPR 31.14 request advising me to contact Shoosmiths in future but by that time I had already sent the S77 request to Marlin (12+2 days were up on that yesterday and heard nothing in reply) Concerned I've not communicated with Shoosmiths at all, only Marlin. Will this matter? Also, as they have replied to the CPR 31.14, albeit briefly and with no information, does this mean they have complied in a way but not fully and should I have something to hand about that also?

 

Kind regards

You need to define for your own sake the difference between a CPR and a section 78 CCA request Tesis

 

CPR requests are civil ( Civil Procedure Rules ) used between parties to clarify the basis of a claim and the way a claim is conducted.....they are not compelled to respond or disclose...that comes later in the procedure just before trial and after defence submitted.

 

Whereas a CCA section 78 request is a legal request which they must comply within the time frame (12 days plus service) otherwise pursuent to the CCA1974 they are prevented from seeking enforcement of any said agreement until they comply or only with the courts permission.

Ok,thanks for clarifying that, didn't realise that at all. Couldn't fully understand why i needed to send s77 when i had already sent cpr. Now i understand better. Will take time to read the consequences of non compliance of s77. Is it normal to feel gut wrenchingly sick at this point?

Yes quite normal but just remember there are no debtors prisons and worse things happen at sea and around the world with far greater consequencies...when you enter the court room just think as them as your neighbours doing their chosen profession.:-)

    • 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....

    • I was talked into signing up with Future Comms (future-comms.co.uk) who cold-called me to change my mobile contract to them, via 02, rather than EE. I have a small business (only me!) and it's a business contract. True, the 4G network is better for my area. This company seemed to be a marketing set-up for various telecoms companies, so I assumed anything I signed would be with 02 and didn't think it might be a problem.
       
      They sent an email whilst I was on the phone to set up the direct debit mandate with my bank which I signed electronically. That was the first, of many, problems I found. Apparently THAT was my contract, binding me to 3 years and no 'cooling off' period, because I was a 'business' (meaning any consumer rights did not apply). When I subsequently asked in writing for a copy of my contract, that is what they sent - when I argued it was a DD mandate they insisted it was my contract!
       
      2 days later they asked for my phone details to get it unlocked which I sent. 10 days later, EE closed my account, so I changed the SIM card to 02 that had come a few days before. No network! They had done nothing about unlocking it. Fortunately I was lucky with EE who managed to give me the right codes, rather than the usual 10 days to go through Samsung.
       
      By this time I was suspicious of their set-up and wanted to cancel. As I said earlier, I found myself trapped into a 3 year contract with no 14 day cooling off period (they don't offer that). Promises to deal with my complaints never happened, promised return calls neither....and on and on.
       
      Ofcom's rules apply to consumers and small businesses (under 10 employees), yet this shower don't acknowledge that. They just repeat and repeat that I am a business so it doesn't apply. To cancel the contract I have to pay the full 3 year's fees!!
       
      I would like to know if others have had similar experiences? Or does anyone know how I can maybe declare the 'contract' unenforceable? I have never before been locked into something without a clear written contract, with t&c's! And, yes, I have asked, and yes, I have been ignored.
