    • @dx100uk, I'm afraid you've got this wrong. My fear of compromising my defence wasn't with regards my response to DCB Legal's initial letter per se. It was more in reference to any subsequent advice posted on this thread by other forum members and I was only being wary due to the numerous instances when some have cautioned about parking companies and their legal reps trawling these pages to stay a step ahead.   As I did also state however, I'm happy to provide full details of that initial reply to DCB Legal and have therefore reproduced it below. Thanks.

    • Hi @BankFodder
      Sorry for only updating you now, but after your guidance with submitting the claim it was pretty straight forward and I didn't want to unnecessarily waste your time. Especially with this guide you wrote here, so many thanks for that
      So I issued the claim on day 15 and they requested more time to respond.
      They took until the last day to respond and denied the claim, unsurprisingly saying my contract was with Packlink and not with them.
       
      I opted for mediation, and it played out very similarly to other people's experiences.
       
      In the first call I outlined my case, and I referred to the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 as the reason to why I do in fact have a contract with them. 
       
      In the second call the mediator came back with an offer of the full amount of the phone and postage £146.93, but not the court costs. I said I was not willing to accept this and the mediator came across as a bit irritated that I would not accept this and said I should be flexible. I insisted that the law was on my side and I was willing to take them to court. The mediator went back to Hermes with what I said.
       
      In the third call the mediator said that they would offer the full amount. However, he said that Hermes still thought that I should have taken the case against Packlink instead, and that they would try to recover the court costs themselves from Packlink.
       
      To be fair to them, if Packlink wasn't based in Spain I would've made the claim against them instead. But since they are overseas and the law lets me take action against Hermes directly, it's the best way of trying to recover the money.
       
      So this is a great win. Thank you so much for your help and all of the resources available on this site. It has helped me so much especially as someone who does not know anything about making money claims.
       
      Many thanks, stay safe and have a good Christmas!

I hope this is in the right place, please would any mod kindly move if not.

 

I would appreciate any guidance along the way from pple more versed in the small claims court.

Lowell Solicitors have lodged a claim with Northampton, particulars as follows.

 

Issue Date:
18-1-2016

Amount approx:
under £600

Claimant:
Lowell Portfolio 1 LTD

Solicitor:
Lowell Solicitors Limited

Original Credit:
Shopacheck

 

Particulars of Claim:

1) The defendant entered into a Consumer Credit Act 1974 regulated agreement with Shopacheck under account reference ******** ("the agreement").

 

2) The defendant failed to maintain the required payments and a default notice was served and not complied with.

 

3) The agreement was later assigned to the claimant on **/**/2012 and notice given to the defendant.

 

 

4) Despite repeated requests for payment, the sum of *** remains due and outstanding.

 

 

And the claimant claims

 

a) The said sum of ***

 

 

b) Interest pursuant to s69 County Courts Act 1984 at the rate of 8% per annum from the date of assignment to the date of issue, acrruing at a daily rate of *** but limited to one year, being ***.

 

 

c) Costs

 

 

What I have done so far:

 

 

 

1) Acknowledgement of service - Online MCOL Website (20/01/2016)

2) Sent CCA REQUEST - £1 postal order - Signed For Post (21/01/2016) - Lowell Portfolio I Ltd

3) Sent CPR 31.14 - Requesting Default Notice, CCA Agreement and assignment - Signed For Post (21/01/2016) - Lowell Solicitors

 

 

I
Cannot for the life of me remember having shopacheck, but then again in 2012 my head was up my proverbial **** as my mother died that year.

 

I have never received any default notice from Shopacheck or Lowells, I am very good with paperwork/documents/post, everything that comes that is official if filed in ring binder boxes...

 

If I had received any default notice I would have acted.

 

Also, I never received any letter from Shopacheck / Lowells to inform me that the debt has been re-assigned.

 

I am not denying the loan but also am not accepting it as I just do not know, what I do know is I have had 20 + loans from shopacheck in the past since circa 2000 , so do have a financial history with the company

I have looked through any/all paper work kept from previous loans but cannot find details of the one they are referring to with the reference number they gave me in the Particulars of Claim.

 

 

So, as of 15/02/2016, Lowell Portfolio I Ltd have not replied to the CCA, Lowell Solicitors did reply to the CPR stating they are requesting the documents but that is as far as it went, they refused to answer my question asking for an agreement to extend the time for filing defence.

 

Last night I filed my defence in time for the 15/02/2016 defence deadline. the defence was along the lines of this link

 

Thanks to anyone who can help with guidance along the way

And then after 33 days can I ask the court to strike it out?

 

No ...nothing to strike out until a claim has been allocated to track.

Hi,

update is that the court have asked for me to complete a DQ (Directions Questionaire) what should I put in this.

 

 

As stated I deny the debt,

Lowell and their solicitors have not responded to anything I have sent them be it a CCA or CPR,

 

 

any help would be great
