    • Why don't you actually READ the sellers advert before talking tosh. The seller's advert offers an optional  12 months breakdown warranty cover,  warranties generally do not cover anything related to wear and tear and especially everything on an old banger will be excluded.  OP should have studied the terms of any such warranty before purchasing it, if he did purchase it.     Also, the sellers advert at NO point states the car has NO faults. READ the sellers advert before jumping to huge conclusions.

    • This is a bit of a lengthy one but I’ll summerise best as possible.
       
      THIS IS HOW THE PHONECALL WENT 
       
      I was contacted by future comms by phone, they stated that they could beat any phone contract I have , (I am a limited company but just myself that needs a business phone and I am the only worker) 
      I told future comms my deal, £110 per month with a phone and a virtual landline, they confirmed that they could beat that, £90 per month with a phone , virtual landline  they also confirmed they would pay Vodafone (previous provider) the termination fee. As I am in business, naturally I was open to making a deal. So we proceeded. 
      Future comms then revealed that the contract would be with PLAN.COM and the airtime would be provided by 02, I instantly told them that this would break the deal as I have poor 02 signal in the house where I live as my partner is on 02 and constantly complaining about bad signal
      the salesman assured me he would send a signal booster box out with the phone so I would have perfect signal.
      so far so good.....
      i then explained this is the only mobile phone I use for business and pleasure, so therefore I didn’t want any disconnection time in the slightest between the switchover from Vodafone to 02
      the salesman then confirmed that the existing phone would only be disconnected once the new phone was switched on.
      so far so good....

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

Yep that's what I'm going to have to do then. I have already sent an e-amil to Lowells and explained our situation at the time and admitted that he buried his head in the sand as did I. but I can only pay by instalments , would that be ok?

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.

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.

A word of advice - don't go emailing claimants without first asking on here whether it's a good idea.

 

Get a CCA and CPR request written up and sent. CCA to Lowell - CPR to the solicitor acting for them.

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?
