I have just received a claimform from Hadfield & Co Solicitors on behalf of my old Uni.


It is over an extra module that I had taken but didn't complete due to dropping out of Uni entirely due to personal reasons.


I accept that I owe the module amount, which is £578

but they are claiming an amount of 726.11

plus a £60 court fee

and £70 legal representative costs - £856.11.


They had assigned a debt collector, who I was about to enter into an agreement with around September 2015.

I can't remember the name of the company


after one phone call, they sent me an income/ expenditure as I proposed £20 per month (I'm not earning much at all!)

I filled in said I/E and sent it off but heard nothing thereafter.


After a lot going on in my life,

I have to say I didn't really give it too much thought until a Claim form came through the post.


Surely they are supposed to send letters?


Like I said I have had one phone call and I was happy to make an arrangement,

I really can't afford a CCJ against me!


The particulars are as follows;


The Claimant claims £578.00 in respect of


1. University Tuition provided by the Claimant at the Defendants request, full particulars whereof having been supplied by way of Claimant's invoice dated 23 October 2012 to 23 October 2012.


2. The Claimant claims the further sum of £148.11 pursuant to S.69 of the County Court Acts 1984 at the rate of 8.00% from the date on which the invoice(s) were due to date.


3. The Claimant also claims statutory interest at the above daily rate of £0.13 from the date hereof to payment of Judgement, whichever is the sooner.


4. Costs


I'm not sure if anyone can help me,

but I have already acknowledged the claim online

and I refuse to bury my head in the sand any more!


I already have one CCJ registered against me, which I have been told from a friend that had I defended it,

I could have had it dismissed!


Thanks in advance!
