No, but I even have the agreement somewhere - I don't think there's any way that they don't have it.

 

But have you ever requested it from Lowlifes? Its irrelevant if Vanish have previously complied.

Only way to possibly avoid a CCJ is to defend it...any offers is an admittance and an automatic Judgment..unless you pay it all off within the stated timeframe

But I thought If I go direct to Lowells and admit and send the n9a it might avoid the ccj?

 

Only if you admit all the debt and pay the full amount claimed...and costs

Afraid not ...payment in full or defend all ...unless you can talk them into considering a Tomlin Order offering a payment arrangement and they stay the claim (NO CCJ)

As Andy has already replied

, you will automatically get a CCJ unless you defend this.

 

As I have seen many times,

they are hoping to intimidate borrowers and obtain judgement in default

 

. I hear what you say about your husband finding out,

but you really have nothing to lose Myfamily now that proceedings have been issued.

 

You will strengthen your bargaining position if you log into MCOL

and tick the defend all box.

Also send off a CCA request asap.

 

Lowells will no doubt have purchased this debt for x pence in the pound. Hence, you may find them willing to offer you a significantly reduced sum to settle.

But please, please, do enter your intention to defend. You can always negotiate a settlement at a later date, without the need for this to go to court. The sum is so small, that Lowells will not want to spend hundreds of pounds on legal fees that they will not recover.

Use this to your advantage but you must defend to have any hope of avoiding a CCJ.

If you feel I've helped then by all means click my star to the left...a simple "thank you" costs nothing! ;)

No harm in defending all

And get a CCA request running to Lowell's

And a CPR 31:14 running to the sols

 

We can sort out a Tomlin or whatever later if it gets sticky

 

Please don't fold

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

No my family you don't need the defence yet.

 

Just log onto mcol click acknowledgment,

defend all

, leave jurisdiction unchecked

go to the end of that, then log out

 

. these guys on here will point you in the right direction for a defence.

 

you do need to get a cca request in tho asap

 

Also I might be wrong as I'm pretty new but I think if you defend and get as far as mediation, you can agree a payment plan there if you wish and not receive a ccj, but I'm not sure on that.

wel I got a reply to my e-mail.

 

"We are unable to accept any offers of repayment as a claim form was issued to you on 21 July 2016, you should read this fully and reply to the claim.

 

If you are admitting the debt in full and wish to pay by instalments, our team are available to complete the admission form response with you over the telephone if you prefer. They can be contacted by calling the below telephone number. Please ensure you have details of income and outgoings to hand when calling. If you are completing any other from in response to the claim, this should be sent directly to the Court as directed on the claim form.

 

If you don’t respond to us within 14 days we may enter a County Court Judgment by default against you which would mean further costs and could make it difficult for you to obtain credit, mortgages or even some employment while it remains unsatisfied on your credit file for a maximum of 6 years.

 

To avoid a County Court Judgment the balance must be paid in full within 14 days of the claim being issued, or paid by instalments over 6 months."

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

I didn't get a chance to do the cca over the weekend so gonna go do it now and post later. will go onto the MCOL and defend now.

Shamrocker- yes you're totally right - I had a panic because I knew I was wrong and fired off an e-mail without thinking!

 

sending the cca and cpr today

 

There's no need to panic. Just follow the process stage by stage and there'll be opportunities to negotiate on the total amount to be paid and also the way it's paid. The first part is to request documented proof of the debt they're claiming - i.e. CCA & CPR requests. This will also make them work and they'll be well aware that more work means more cost and less profit. Therefore, you're preparing the groundwork for future negotiation...assuming you can't realistically challenge the full claim.

 

As DX says, make sure you acknowledge the claim without delay. You can quite easily do this online.

ok, I'm really panicking now - I can't get logged into the website to defend - I registered the other day and tried to log in again today and it won't let me, so i tried to re-set my password, still didn't let me in. so tried to re-register, I get to the repond to a claim page and put in the claim details and it says my claim number or password is incorrect!! What am i supposed to do?!! :-(

 

ok I've finally managed to log in, do i contest jurisdiction? don't know what this means?
