Hello.

 

I received a county court claim form from county court business centre dated 29/7/2014.

The particulars are:

By an agreement between bank of Scotland (aqua card)

("BOS") & the defendant on or around 27/04/2009

("the agreement")BOS agreed to issue the defendant with a credit card upon terms and conditions set out therein, in breach of the agreement the defendant failed to make the minimum payments and the agreement was terminated.

The agreement was assigned to the claimant on 18/03/2011

The claimant therefore claims 596.72.

 

The claim is from Cabot Financial through Mortimer Clarke solicitors and is for the above amount plus £120 court fee and costs.

 

I sent a CPR 31 request to Mortimer clarke on the 2/8/2014 and received a letter back stating that they were "taking instructions from their client and would get back to me asap", they also stated that they would agree to a 28 day extension.

 

I would like to make it plain that i have no idea where this debt has come from and have never owned any credit cards relating to 'BOS' despite having a Natwest account for over ten years, due to the actions of my first wife i have been unable to obtain mainstream credit for almost fifteen years now and although i have received letters from various organisations over the years regarding this 'aqua' card i gave up trying to explain to them that i had no knowledge of the debt several years ago.

 

I have registered with MCOL and acknowledged service online, but it now says that the case has 'had a bar put on it' and i can't respond or file defence at the moment.

 

Any advice as to how to proceed would be very helpful.

 

Thanks

Gavin.

To add i have sent an SAR request to cabot this morning although I'm not sure if the court will look at it unfavorably if i don't agree to the 28 day extension thus not giving cabot time to respond, this may be ok based on the updated timeframe.

Does this read ok to file as defence?

 

Particulars of Claim

 

 

1.By an agreement between Bank of Scotland (aqua card)("BOS") & the defendant on or around 27/04/2009

("the agreement")BOS agreed to issue the defendant with a credit card upon terms and conditions set out therein,

 

2.In breach of the agreement the defendant failed to make the minimum payments and the agreement was terminated.

 

3.The agreement was assigned to the claimant on 18/03/2011

The claimant therefore claims £726 (£526 + £60 court fee + £60 costs)

 

 

Defence

 

1.The Defendant contends that the particulars of claim are vague and generic in nature. The Defendant 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.

 

2.Paragraph 1 is noted. I have no knowledge of any agreement between myself and Bank of Scotland regarding the Aqua credit card product

 

3.Paragraph 2 is denied. I have never held an agreement with BOSlink3.gif Aqua Cards to enable any breach let alone withhold any payments.

 

4.Paragraph 3 is denied I am unaware of any legal assignment or Notice of Assignment allegedly served over 3 years ago.

 

5.It is therefore denied with regards to the Defendant owing any monies to the Claimant, the Claimant has failed to provide any evidence of assignment/balance/breach requested by CPR 31. 14, therefore the Claimant is put to strict proof to:

 

(a) show how the Defendant has entered into an agreement with the Claimant; and

(b) show how the Defendant has reached the amount claimed for; and

© show how the Claimant has the legal right, either under statute or equity to issue a claim;

 

6.As per Rule 16.5(4), it is expected that the Claimant prove the allegation that the money is owed.

 

7.On the alternative, if the Claimant is an assignee of a debt, it is denied that the Claimant has the right to lay a claim due to contraventions of Section 136 of the Law of Property Act and Section 82A of the Act 1974.

 

 

8.By reasons of the facts and matters set out above, it is denied that the Claimant is entitled to the relief claimed or any relief.

Thats not really the answer to their point 2 gavv

 

They are saying that you breached the agreement and therefore failed to make any payments and the agreement was terminated.

 

Your response should be along the lines of Paragraph 2 is denied I have never held an agreement with BOS Aqua Cards to enable any breach let alone withhold any payments.
