Hi.. Good afternoon everyone, I really hope someone is able to help me.

 

This morning I've received a County Court claim. The perusing claimant is Mortimer Clarke Solicitors acting on behalf of Cabot Financial.

 

The debt of £413 is from a Capital One card from 2004 (£213 of this is interest charges).

 

The last payment I believe I made to (Aktiv Kapital) was back in December 2009,

although I can't confirm this as I have a different bank account now,

and I've made no contact or acknowledgement since.

 

I checked my credit file in late December (screen shot attached) and seen they (Cabot) had registered 2 recent payment defaults against me.

Just checked my file again today and it's disappeared, no trace of it.

 

However it did show the default payment date recorded on the account was 29/01/2010. so would this make it statute barred ?

 

Do I still have time to send off a CCA request to Cabot in the hope of delaying this, or have I left it too late ?

 

Should I complete the section of the court claim document to Dispute the Claim as it maybe Statute Barred ?

 

Please help, not quite sure what my next course of action should be.

 

Kind Regards

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...

The date of default shown on the credit file is likely to be later than the last payment,

it is only recorded once you have failed to pay after the default notice is issued.

 

It is well worth asking for CCA from Cabot asap,

pointing out that the 12 days allowed is of the essence .

 

 

If you don't receive it in the time allowed you can then defend on the grounds that CCA was not received

and also plead statute barred .

 

 

In the meantime just acknowledge the claim, with the intention to defend. Was there no letter before action ?

I've just sent a CCA request to Cabot now (although I've not mentioned about the 12 days being of the essence) and I'll fill in the court paperwork as you advised.

 

Yes, there was a letter dated 24th December, but were away with family over Christmas so it was only opened on Monday this week, the letter from Mortimer Clarke did state they would peruse it as a court claim and had attached an income and expenditure.

 

I was planning to CCA it anyway, but my first week back to work it just slipped by me.. and then the court papers arrived today. :(

 

Thanks catquest

can you get that link done please...

 

 

the timelimit on CCA plays no real part once a claim is issued.

 

 

if they don't cough by day 33 from the date on the claimform

you file the no paperwork def.

 

 

link please first...

If you last paid in December 09, then it wouldn't quite be SB, it would be one month (or thereabouts) after the last payment was made. Is there any way of finding out when you last paid? It could be crucial!

 

A lot of DCA's will issue a claim when it's coming up to SB and unless you win or they discontinue, it will never become SB.

 

As it's such a small (ish) amount, would you consider or are you able to make an offer? Of course a greatly reduced amount, which would avoid getting a ccj.

 

You can complete the AOS (acknowledgement of service) online through MCOL, it's pretty straight forward, but ask if you're stuck.

 

Cabot will/should know the timescale for your CCA request, did you send it recorded delivery so that you have proof that you sent it?

I made arrangements to pay £1 to Akiv Kapital in July/August 09.

However I ceased making payments in December 09

 

 

...........................

 

 

I've tried to find a record of the last payment I made however it has proved to be futile,

 

 

I'm only going on the default date assuming the last payment I made was December 2009 .

 

I'm in a tight spot at the moment and given that over half the amount they are claiming is interest I would prefer to try and contest it.

 

Yes, the CCA has been sent recorded.

I've taken pictures of the letter & postal order (endorsed on the back stating "For Statutory Fee Only" ).

 

Interestingly on both the letter sent by Cabot, Mortimer Clarke etc there is no reference to the original account number

its just a blank field, they have only used their reference number

cap1 would have defaulted the debt before they sold and terminated it

a DCA cannot terminate an agreement.

 

 

so the default on you file is WRONG

thats the one AK put on there,

 

 

so when did cap1 sell the debt on

[notice of assignment to AK date please]

 

 

if your last payment was dec 09

[The £1PCM AK were fleecing of]

 

 

then pers i'd file the statute barred defence.

 

 

go ack the claim first on mcol

defend all

leave juris unticked

Ok.. I've been working away this week so not had a chance to get back here to update as I've given some incorrect information .. oops

 

I've trawled through every scrap of paperwork I can find, and it seems I wasn't making a £1 payment on this debt like I thought.. I wrote to cap1 on 18/01/2010 requesting a statement of account for the previous 6 months, that was the last contact I had with them until the letters from Cabot started arriving.

 

So the last contact from me was dated 18th January 2010.

 

I've registered with MCOL and its now day 8 from the date on the court papers.... Do I just wait until the 19th (day 12) and choose to "Start Defense" and state "Statute Barred"

 

All help appreciated.

 

Regards

thats good news

doesn't matter about the letter

if you've not paid in over 6yrs go ack the claim [aos]

 

 

then file this defence

 

 

the sooner the better.

 

 

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.

.

re your letter of 18 Jan 2010 see Good v Parry ( 1963 ) : Lord Denning said asking for an account is not an acknowledgement of the debt

also considered (with Dungate) in the later HL decision in Bradford and Bingley v Rashid (para 55 etc).

IMO

I might have underplayed the letter somewhat, It kind of does acknowledge the debt :-(

 

[ATTACH=CONFIG]61056[/ATTACH]

maybe. but you say last payment was dec 09, so that letter maybe irrelevant if the last payment counts.

post edited, wrong date :)

IMO

just file the defence

 

 

they've gotta even know that letter exists

they wont

 

 

all they get is a line on a spreadsheet and the PC randomly selects a juicy debt to try and get a default judgement on.

*** UPDATE ***

 

So after sending off the CCA request to Cabot,

Last week I received a reply from MCS that they do not hold this documentation

and they only act on behalf of the pursuing company 'Cabot' and they will notify them etc..etc

 

 

... So the 12 days have long past and still no evidence of the CCA appearing.

 

However, I followed the advise in the thread to the letter,

Registered with MCOL,

Acknowledge the claim and submitted a SB defense.

 

Today I have received a letter from MCS stating the following.

 

"We are instructed that in this case the cause of action accrued when the agreement was terminated on 29/01/2010.

Therefore proceedings were issued within the 6 year limitation period, and so the claim is not statute barred.." etc

 

I have attached a pdf of the letter received.

 

Please help on what I should do now.
