Early last year my husband received a county court summons for £11,500 for a credit card debt sold on to a DCA.

 

He replied and defended the action on the basis of the limited information on the summons

and that he was awaiting a reply to the CCA letter sent to them on the day the summons was received.

 

He never received a copy of the CCA,

just a letter from them saying the debt was no longer enforceable

and they could not proceed any further through the courts,

but would he please call them to discuss a repayment plan.

They also promised to forward the copy of the CCA.

 

That was over a year ago and we are still haven’t received the CCA,

but what he did not advise them was the debt would not really be statute barred until last October

, three months after their letter.

 

Move forward to now,

and I have received a letter from the same DCA and they are chasing a debt for £8.250 for a card of mine.

This will become statute barred in the middle of August when it will be 6 years since the last payment.

 

I received a letter from them dated 6 April but not received until 12 April,

saying if I did not contact them within 14 days they would commence legal action.

 

My understanding of statute barred debts is they expire six years after the last payment

or admission of the debt and the creditor has until this time to obtain judgement.

 

 

Is this correct and can the DCA request to the courts an extension this period for the time it takes to

transfer to a local court and to a hearing?

 

The default for this will expire soon and I am l keen to keep as clean a record

as possible after eight years of financial misery.

 

I appreciate I am morally wrong but this DCA will have purchased the debt for peanuts,

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...

If I send the CCA Request can they take out a summons in the meantime?

 

DX, as you suggest I would leave it, but for the fact that they DID issue a summon before and may have cross-referenced the name/address and be annoyed at the money they lost on trying to sue my husband after buying his debt.

a CCA request will not stop them

IF they wish to issue.

What is normally the shortest period between filing a defence and a hearing, based on the assumption of it having to be transferred to a local court? We have around 6 debts between us that will be stat barred between May and October with only the August one threatening action.

IF you get a proper lba from any of these companies come back here for furhter advice. That will probably include sending a CCA request if a credit agreement but for the moment they arent bothering you so dont poke them with a stick.

Your assumptions on why they ceased action against hubby may well not apply to your own case so dont allow that to blind you.

Good advice.

 

 

We have learned to keep are heads down and not answer the phone if their numbers appear and so far 7 debts totalling over 55k have disappeared from our credit files and chasing letters.
