    • there's no rule of thumb but rarely do you see lowells drop a claim until after the disclosures stage it just really depends upon what 'cards' they hold like enforceable agreement, DN, NOA etc etc however due to andyorch's excellent help - we see most discontinued...   one thing that also plays a part is when the card was taken out too. yours was taken out?   these will give you a good benchmark and also help with defence and after process   https://cse.google.com/cse?cx=partner-pub-8889411648654839:3134625398&q=lowell claimform vanquis won discontinued&oq=lowell claimform vanquis won discontinued&gs_l=partner-generic.12...166572.185174.0.188553.41.41.0.0.0.0.92.2663.41.41.0.csems%2Cnrl%3D13...0.18609j16146633j41...1.34.partner-generic..34.7.458.uRZnbd8y-qY
    • On Monday the 27th of July 2020, i signed up with Anglian windows to work as a canvasser over in East London, the interview went well. I started working and had to use a app on the phone to make appointments. The deal was if i got a lead on the door and the salesman went round to the customer and and priced it i would get paid for it.  I started working the following week, i made leads, but i had problems with the app not working as well as it should, the app would give me results on my leads.  Long story but they where working some leads and forgetting to work other leads and not up dating the app, so i did not know my results. My wages where wrong and i decided i could not work for the company. I gave them over 20 leads and was only paid for 3.  I told them i was leaving, that was fine, they said they would work my leads and pay me, they even sent me a text message to say one of my leads has been priced and i would get paid for it.  No money was paid, i have sent messages to the regional manager and no answer, in the end i started emailing head office and they said they would look into it but i am getting nowhere.    What can i do.

    • I came across this discussion recently and just wanted to give my experience of A Shade Greener that may help others regarding their boiler finance agreement.
       
      We had a 10yr  finance contract for a boiler fitted July 2015.
       
      After a summer of discontent with ASG I discovered that if you have paid HALF the agreement or more you can legally return the boiler to them at no cost to yourself. I've just returned mine the feeling is liberating.
       
      It all started mid summer during lockdown when they refused to service our boiler because we didn't have a loft ladder or flooring installed despite the fact AS installed the boiler. and had previosuly serviced it without issue for 4yrs. After consulting with an independent installer I was informed that if this was the case then ASG had breached building regulations,  this was duly reported to Gas Safe to investigate and even then ASG refused to accept blame and repeatedly said it was my problem. Anyway Gas Safe found them in breach of building regs and a compromise was reached.
       
      A month later and ASG attended to service our boiler but in the process left the boiler unusuable as it kept losing pressure not to mention they had damaged the filling loop in the process which they said was my responsibilty not theres and would charge me to repair, so generous of them! Soon after reporting the fault I got a letter stating it was time we arranged a powerflush on our heating system which they make you do after 5 years even though there's nothing in the contract that states this. Coincidence?
       
      After a few heated exchanges with ASG (pardon the pun) I decided to pull the plug and cancel our agreement.
       
      The boiler was removed and replaced by a reputable installer,  and the old boiler was returned to ASG thus ending our contract with them. What's mad is I saved in excess of £1000 in the long run and got a new boiler with a brand new 12yr warranty. 
       
      You only have to look at TrustPilot to get an idea of what this company is like.

    • Dazza a few months ago I discovered a good friend of mine who had ten debts with cards and catalogues which he was slavishly paying off at detriment to his own family quality of life, and I mean hardship, not just absence of second holidays or flat screen TV's.
       
      I wrote to all his creditors asking for supporting documents and not one could provide any material that would allow them to enforce the debt.
       
      As a result he stopped paying and they have been unable to do anything, one even admitted it was unenforceable.
       
      If circumstances have got to the point where you are finding it unmanageable you must ask yourself why you feel the need to pay.  I guarantee you that these companies have built bad debt into their business model and no one over there is losing any sleep over your debt to them!  They will see you as a victim and cash cow and they will be reluctant to discuss final offers, only ways to keep you paying with threats of court action or seizing your assets if you have any.
       
      They are not your friends and you owe them no loyalty or moral duty, that must remain only for yourself and your family.
       
      If it was me I would send them all a CCA request.   I would bet that not one will provide the correct response and you can quite legally stop paying them until such time as they do provide a response.   Even when they do you should check back here as they mostly send dodgy photo copies or generic rubbish that has no connection with your supposed debt.
       
      The money you are paying them should, as far as you are able, be put to a savings account for yourself and as a means of paying of one of these fleecers should they ever manage to get to to the point of a successful court judgement.  After six years they will not be able to start court action and that money will then become yours.
       
      They will of course pursue you for the funds and pass your file around various departments of their business and out to third parties.
       
      Your response is that you should treat it as a hobby.  I have numerous files of correspondence each faithfully organised showing the various letters from different DCA;s , solicitors etc with a mix of threats, inducements and offers.   It is like my stamp collection and I show it to anyone who is interested!

Yes, this is all the same issue - I have the materials from the SAR but I lacked the mental space to deal with it any further as it was so incomprehensible, and now I've got a CCJ heading towards me. Utterly bewildered by all of this.

Yes it is.

 

ok

as advised, do the cca request pronto.

can also do the barred letter. if sure is barred.

that might put them off starting a claim, for now. but maybe not knowing them.

IMO

Not that I can see - I need to have another look through it tomorrow but I remember not being able to find anything about the last payment,which is what I wanted to challenge Lowell originally.

Have Lowells actually defaulted you, or have they simply updated the credit files and the Original creditor defaulted you at an earlier date ?

 

The fact is, that Lowells cannot default you as they are not the original creditor.

 

If you are absolutely certain that you have made no payments since 2006, then I would suggest the statute barred letter in the link below would be the best course of action for you to take.

Hmmm.. Lowell has applied the default as far as I can see (as in, on my credit file they're named as the creditor.

I had a look through the SAR info from the original creditor yesterday, and it seems to suggest I made payments by Direct Debit in 2010, but these payments all appeared to be for Zero, and then the balance went UP by £12 each month (a missed payment fee I assume). I'm now looking to get old bank statements to prove I had no active direct debit and made no payment, so I'll tackle Lowell.

 

But for now I just need to keep Brian Carter off my back. He'll have received the CCA this morning so I'll await my post with treidation next week!

their logs shld show all things in/out, including default notice and when it was closed out.

Hello All, just to let you know I've received the following from Brian Carter this morning:

 

We confirm the letter you received was a Letter Before Action and no court proceedings have been issued as yet. In any event this matter would most likely be allocated to the Small Claims Track and Part 31 will not apply.

 

In any event the Notices of Default and Assignment left the control of the Claimant when they were dispatched to you.

 

It is the orginial creditor's policy to issue agreements at the start of the contract and statements thoroughout the duration of the agreement and in this regard we ask you to refer to your own records.

 

So.... what do I reply to that with? Sounds like I'll be receiving court papers sooner rather than later, doesn't it?

usual nonsense from Farters, they do know until allocation then CPR 31 applies, the rest is just farcical letter wording they always press button !B! and churn out see what arrives next in the pantomime season at Farters.

 

do nothing as all letter ping pong to the idiots is a waste of time as they cannot read/digest, do not forget those people who delve in this dirty so called solicitors for hire business are not fit for any other proper job other than align with more crooks! and if the CCA1974 is outstanding then that is it for now.

 

 

as this country has gone to the dogs due to the Money Sickness Syndrome what can one expect from top to bottom!

That is a standard letter in response to a CPR 31.14 letter, which you only send if a court claim form is received. It puts the claimant on notice that you expect to be provided with any documents mentioned in their claim.

 

From what i can see, you were just advised to send the CCA REQUEST, which is presumably what you did ?

We could do with some help from you.

Yes.

 

So just wait and see what happens. The outstanding CCA request should put the off issuing the claim, but if they do, then you defend it. Report back when you hear any more.

Yes.

 

just to ensure that you have done a separate formal cca request (click on it) and not a CPR 31.14 request (which is different, and which it looks like given their response) or a combination.

  • 2 weeks later...

Just to update on this, letter received today from Brian Carter saying they've 'received my corespondence' (i.e my CCA request) and have 'referred to their client' and have 'put my account on hold'.

 

So I'll wait and see what comes next...
