Good evening,

I wondered if you could help me.

 

I have received a county court claim form for a credit card debt.

 

 

The credit card was capital one and the debt was passed to various solicitors over the years.

The debt is now with Capquest and they have instructed Drydens Fairfax to manage the matter.

 

This credit card was taken out over 6 years ago,

however I believe the last payment made could be around the 5 or 6 year mark

which if over 6 could make the debt statute barred.

 

 

I have tried to find old paperwork to try and see when I last made payment

but can't and I no longer bank with the particular bank from which the payments will have been made.

 

 

I know I haven't made any payment since May 2010 and could be earlier.

 

The issue date on the Claim a Form is 03 December 2015 and I know I have to comply with timescales.

I cannot afford to have a CCJ registered against me as I am looking to purchase a house next year.

 

I haven't received anything from anyone about this debt for around 4 years

until a week or so ago when I got a letter from Drydens.

 

 

They threatened legal action if I didn't contact them within 14 days.

I contacted them within this period and emailed for more information.

 

 

They emailed back to request a paragraph from me to confirm that I was happy to correspond via email

I did this, received no further response apart from the Claim Form.

 

I don't know what to do for the best.

The debt is in excess of £2500.

I also cannot find out when my last payment was.

 

I don't know where to start.

 

 

Do I acknowledge regardless?

 

 

Do I attempt to defend with no evidence unless they can prove otherwise?

 

I look forward to receiving your help

 

Thank you

The debt has fallen off my credit report so unable to see this.

 

I have an old paper copy of my credit report but that shows that the credit agreement started in August 2005

and the default date is April 2008.

 

 

The account on my paper copy states that it was last updated April 2012,

but the balance has been the same some 12-24 months prior?

I have also found a statement from Capquest from November 2014.

This states that the statement period is from January 2009-October 2014.

It shows the opening balance as 2514 the only payment that is showing is on 14 March 2011 from an external agency for £1.00?

 

 

What does this mean?

I didn't make a payment

I have also found an email.... Sorry I have paperwork all over the place trying to locate anything that relates to this.

I have found an email that I sent to another debt collector whom had this before Capquest which was a Cca request. The £1 was a payment from me for a copy but in the email it was stated that I do not acknowledge any debt.....

 

I didn't receive a response to my Cca request and this was sent in January 2011. The £1.00 was allocated to my account by the looks of it but I didn't receive a response to my request

ok that makes sense as I guessed.

 

 

who was that CCA request sent too?

 

 

and any more letters prior to that

 

 

you're possibly looking for a letter say around 6yrs prior to the claimform date that

confirms you hadn;t paid anything

That Cca request was sent to H L Legal & Collections Solicifors.

 

Like I say no response was received.

 

I don't appear to have anything prior relating to this.

That email with the Cca request is the earliest.

 

The only thing really I have to rely on is the Capquest statement from last year which states that a payment has been received for only £1 from Jan 2009 until now...

.. Surely that would clearly make this statute barred would it not?

 

If not,

do you suggest that I attempt to call Capitsl One or Capquest directly, or indeed Drydens

in an attempt to obtain details of the last payment made?

 

Do I need to do anything with the Claim Form in the meantime,

or based upon the information do I have a strong enough defence for statute barred?

 

If I defend and lose, will I still have a further 31 days to pay the claim to enable this to be removed from my report or will it stay on for 6 years?

ok

per I'd go ack the claim defend all on the mcol website

 

 

and file the SB defence too

 

 

The following defence is all you need if it is SB

1 The Claimant's claim was issued on (insert date).

2 The Defendant contends that the Claimant's claim so issued is a claim in contract and is statute barred pursuant to the provisions of section 5 of the limitation act 1980.

.

If, which is denied, the claimant contends that the Defendant is in breach of the alleged contract, in excess of 6 years have elapsed since the date on which any cause of action for breach accrued for the benefit of the Claimant.

.

3 The Claimant's claim to be entitled to payment of £[insert figure from their POC] or any other sum, or relief of any kind is denied.

.
