Hi.

 

 

One of my old mobile phone accounts was purchased by lowell and bryan carter has been acting on their behalf.

 

 

I have no reason to dispute this account and I have been paying them £1 per month for a while now.

 

 

An oversight on my part meant that I missed last months payment.

Its only been a couple of weeks and today I have a county court claim form.

 

I have never had to deal with courts so I am hoping for some advice before I do anything.

 

Many thanks

 

Paul

Please put up the claim form and also tell us the size of the debt and how long have you been making the payments.

Have you missed any before?

Did you receive any advance warning paul that litigation would be commenced ? Letter Before Action allowing you time to get the payments back on track?

I emailed bryan carter in May 2014 with the offer £1 per month.

 

 

They emailed back 'Thank you for contacting us. Our client will accept monthly instalments of £1 if appropriate in your present financial circumstances.

We look forward to receiving your payment.'

 

 

I still have the email as proof.

Excellent...okay firstly you need to acknowledge service of the claim...you have 19 days to complete this (by the 19th May)...register to use the Gov Gateway as advised on the claim pack...this will produce a username (keep this safe as you will need it again to submit your defence and log in) so you can deal with this on line ...MCOL ...your password is already on the claim form.

 

Acknowledge service and state you intend to defend all the claim...that is all you do for now.

 

Once the 19 days have expired you have a further 14 days to submit your defence (so 33 days all in to complete this process) so you must submit a defence by the 23rd May.

 

Bump your thread nearer the time and I will draft you a suitable response that can be used for your defence.

 

Regards

 

Andy

I really appreciate your advice Andy, but do I even have a defence? I have been paying to this account for a year now.

Do you think it is fair to have CCJ placed against you for 6 years because of one missed payment?

Do you think its fair that they should litigate without even notifying you or giving you chance to make up the missed payment of £1.

Are they legally entitled to bring a claim anyway....are they the legal owners ?

Did you really legally owe £239.00 to 02 initially?

That is all very true. But will I have a chance to make all these points? All I seem to have to state anything is some I&E form.

Ok thanks again Andy. Just trying to get my head around it. Ive never had to deal with anything like this and I am a bit shaken by it. I have registered on gov gateway but it is saying that the claim number or password is incorrect. I've tried multiple times but it just wont accept it.

 

EDIT solved it. Its case sensitive.

Just going through the acknowledgment now. I have a tick box that asks if i intend to contest jurisdiction. I don't know what this means.

Ok. I have submited the acknowledgment. I just have a couple of silly questions.

Will I have to appear at the court? The court address on the form is the one in Northampton.

The standing order that I set up for this account is still active. Should I cancel it?

Is there anything else I need to doing?

 

thanks

No ignore

 

Ok. I have submited the acknowledgment. I just have a couple of silly questions.

Will I have to appear at the court? The court address on the form is the one in Northampton. Maybe but it usually does not get to that stage if a good defence is offered and if you did it would be transferred to your local county court.Northampton Bulk is MCOL which only issues the claim.

The standing order that I set up for this account is still active. Should I cancel it? For £1 I would leave it may be useful

Is there anything else I need to doing? Yes you need to send the Solicitor acting a CPR 31.14 request...See legal Library for template...edit it so you only ask for a document/s that is referred to in the claimants particulars.

 

thanks

 

Regards

lol. After reading through some threads here, it seems a lot of such cases are discontinued. Obviously they do this to scare people into coughing up. I admit I had bit of a panic when I got the claim in the post. I'm fine now though. :madgrin:

That is exactly what he does, uses SD's as a debt collection tool.

 

I do hope you've made a formal complaint about his methods to the SRA?
