On behalf of a friend who only received this letter a few days ago

I checked out the information at the court and apparently it already happened.

Court states claim issued on 8th Dec 2015.

 

This letter below dated 5th Jan 2016, received Monday 11th Jan.

 

"Notice of pending CCJ"

 

Our client: Lowell Portfolio Ltd - Account # xxxx

Court name : Northampton Claim number : xxxx

Amount due £1800.00

 

"You are aware that we have issued legal proceedings against you in the Northampton County Court."

 

No letter or other communication received.

"As you have failed to respond with proposals for payment or provide any valid explanation why the deb should not be paid, we are now instructed to enter judgment against you."

No possible way to respond.

 

"In order to provent judgement being entered you should make payment of £1800.00 within the next 7 days"

Which 7 days? looks like its already passed?

 

What advice can be given?

Thank you.

Acknowledge the claim and defend it all...once the claim forms are received...

 

Court states claim issued on 8th Dec 2015.....then you still have 18 days to acknowledge service.The claimant can not request judgment before that expires.

If a claim was issued on the 8th Jan 2016 its impossible for a judgment to be granted by the 14th Jan 2016...19 days is the minimum period before a claimant can request judgment.

If he never received it and has not moved address recently...then set a side...assuming he has a defence to offer.

When asking for it to be set aside a defence for this is also required at the same time.

"You must demonstrate to the Judge you have grounds to defend to the claim."

 

Reason:

"An Order to set Judgment aside for the reason that the Defendant did not receive notice of the proceedings.

Royal Mail failed to deliver court claim to the Defendant's address because it was mis-delivered and subsequently the Defendant has been unable to have the opportunity to defend the claim."

 

Would that be adequate enough? Even though no particluars of the claim are challenged as yet to the judge but it can be listed from the claim. Should I add in those too?

please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

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...

Still requires a valid defence apart from the none receipt...why does he not owe the debt?

The debt become too large to pay under the circumstances at that time.

Didn't receive proper paperwork or claim letters until it was already over.

 

Vanquis never made any arrangements to discuss the debt and clearly just got rid of it to multiple DCAs,

Lowell being the newest DCA but certainly no "assignment notice" was ever sent.

Cohen thanked me for the letter (no reference to the CPR which actually what it was about) that was sent to them. Just stating that the judgment has been given on the 14th and if any questions then call them.

Please advise.

 

What order are you asking the court to make and why?

 

An Order to set Judgment aside for the reason that the Defendant did not receive notice of the proceedings.

Royal Mail failed to deliver the court claim to The Defendant's address in good time as it was misdelivered. There is a history of Royal Mail failing to meet acceptable standards of delivery and the Defendant has many complaints registered with Royal Mail.

The Defendant has an arguable defence if The Defendant is permitted to submit it.

It would be in the interests of justice to set aside the Judgment and allow The Defendant to present a defence case.
