Credit agreements in Scotland from 1st Decemeber 2009

.

Scottish court change ‘threatens recovery’ - 02/10/2009

.

Creditors and debt buyers will be unable to recover debts through the Scottish courts unless they have copies of regulated agreements, under new rules.

.

Experts are calling on those who use the Scottish courts to send representation to the Sheriff Court Rules Council, which initiated the change to the court rules. The change is due to be implemented on 1 December. From then, court actions regulated by the consumer credit Act 1974 will require a copy of the regulated agreement which will have to be attached to the writ or summons.

.

The council’s secretariat has told solicitors that individual sheriffs will take their own view as to what constitutes a copy and they may require a photocopy of the agreement rather than a ‘reconstituted copy’. Stephan Cowan, managing partner of Yuill & Kyle Solicitors, said this is surprising as creditors are usually required to provide ‘true copies’. "A true copy does not mean an exact copy and there is case law to support this," he said.

.

The impact on lenders and debt purchasers could be significant as many financial institutions are only able to provide a ‘reconstituted copy’ – repopulating a template from computer records. They are bound to litigate in the debtor’s domicile and so would not be able to recover those debts.

.

The stance also differs from that taken by the Office of Fair Trading, which states that creditors must provide ‘true copies’ under sections 77 and 78 of the Consumer Credit Act and accepts reconstituted copies as valid.

.

The Rules Council is meeting on 6 November and has said it is willing to receive representations from creditors and industry groups concerned about the change. It can be contacted at [email protected] k (0131 221 6766) or by letter at: The Secretary, Sheriff Court Rules Council, Hayweight House, 23 Lauriston Street, Edinburgh EH3 9DQ.

There is also an article written by YUILL & KYLE (BANKS SOLICITORS) that i have pasted for your to read:

Scottish court change threatens recovery'

.

At the beginning of this week we highlighted important court changes in the pipeline. Following on from this, please see the below Credit Today article for Stephen Cowan´s views on the implications these changes will have.

Hello and welcome jasser,

 

Could you give us the story of the debt please.

 

Hi, sorry missed this somehow.

 

It's a credit card from the early 2000's, defaulted and then eventually sold on.

 

 

I've already been to court and the Sheriff allowed more time for the agreement to be produced.

 

 

I have a lawyer friend who is helping me out and had been wondering about this as I'd seen it mentioned a few times.

 

 

Dx100uk has confirmed that it is not required though, pity.

Hi,

 

Always been in Scotland.

 

The debt is a credit card taken out in 2001.

 

 

Mbna defaulted me in July 2010 with a balance of approx £2500

then sold the debt onto Arrow sometime afterward,

It's been passed round a few agencies since.

 

Handn't heard anything for what must have been a year

then received a small claims summons in July,

the solicitors acting for Arrow are Shoosmiths.

 

At the first hearing no documents were produced and the sheriff asked for the agreement

and gave them time to do so, back at court the end of the month.

 

I have now sent a CCA request to Arrow.

Hi guys,

 

just an update to say that I've received a reply to the CCA request which states they are unable to obtain the agreement from the original creditor. They also say that there will be no collection activity until they get the document and provide me with a copy.

Hi guys,

 

Just to let you know this was dismissed,

can claim expenses as well if I wish.

 

At first it appeared they hadn't turned up as when the clerk was checking the cases there was no one there representing them.

One of the solicitor agents must have contacted them because when it was called they said that Shoosmiths had apparently got the hearing date wrong

, which I thought strange, it didn't impress the Sheriff though who told them tough.

 

They then asked for a continuance to allow them time to lodge productions, even though they had already lodged some.

My friend objected stating that at the last hearing they had been ordered to produce the agreement at this hearing,

he then made a motion for dismissal,

the clerk then read out the order allowing them ten weeks to produce the agreement.

 

When the Sheriff heard the order she dismissed it straight away,

more or less saying you've not complied with it even though you've had plenty of time to do so,

again she didn't seem impressed with them,

the whole thing was over in about five minutes,

didn't even have to bring up the s.78 request.

 

The Sheriff was very good to be honest,

she was great with a guy who was up before me,

talking them through what they needed to do

and how to go about it, the way it should be.

 

Thanks again to dx for their advice and also a thank you to the site in general

as the information on here is invaluable to someone like me.:thumb:

Yes, it was a small claims 1a, it was also Arrow Global rather than Cabot.

 

Couldn't agree more on defending,

apparently over 90% of in Sheriff Court civil actions go undefended with most of them being debt recovery.

 

 

I think that's what they were hoping for in my case as it was a purely speculative claim,

it's ridiculous they can get away with bringing these types of claim

when they have no documentation to back it up.

 

 

I assume they lie on most of the statements of claim when it comes to the agreements,

mine claimed there was an agreement and that it said blah blah blah

when quite clearly they had no idea if there was one never mind what it said on it.
