Just wondering if anyone can help.

 

My mum received a letter for a debt which wasn't her that ran it up.

It was her ex partners son who started ordering from littlewoods and never paid it off.

 

The debt was for £1985 and was bought by lowell.

 

In September she had a letter from bw legal stating they will start legal proceedings to collect the debt.

I set up a payment plan in the short term to stop them from going further.

In the mean time i sent them a request for a statement of account and signed credit agreement on the 10th of September.

 

So far they have not managed to provide this information. Im just wondering what the next step would be now.

 

Thank you

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...

The date this Littlewoods account was taken out is important. It it was after April 2007, then it does not matter if they have a signed CCA or not to enforce in court. They need to supply a true copy of a CCA for the request made, but it does not need to contain a signature.

 

There will be a lot of excess charges applied by Littlewoods which can be claimed off the debt to reduce the debt amount. So your Mum needs to send a Data Protection Subject Access Request to Littlewoods and ask for copies of documents including all statements of account.

We could do with some help from you.

I started reading up on bwlegal and saw alot of people getting the same kind of letters and then court proceedings. She doesn't need this at the minute so that was the easiest solution at the moment. I think roughly the interest added was around £1300 of that.

The CCA is mostly irrelevant given when it was taken out, as those issued after April 2007 don't need a creditor to provide a signed copy of the CCA to enforce in court.

 

As advised, a subject access request needs to go to Littlewoods to get hold of all records. In the letter, i would specifically ask for two bits of information.

 

Statements of account

Copies of orders made to them.

 

Statements of account to reveal excess charges applied that can be taken off the debt amount to reduce it.

 

Copies of orders to find out how Littlewoods accepted orders from someone other than the account holder. If Littlewoods accepted orders from ex partners son, without consent of your Mum, then this is something that can be used.

We could do with some help from you.

From what i can gather it was all online. I will get the sars sent off though. Would the interest be regarded as an excessive charge? Looking at littlewoods excess now it seems like it could have been 34.9% apr.

did she consent to her details being used to set up the account either at the time or since? Where were the goods dispatched to? This may reinforce UB's line of questioning or make the debt enforceable but TBH setting up a repayment plan hasnt helped your mum but continue with it until she gets the SAR results.

If the interest can be reduced on the account she would rather pay it off than have to fight it and go through all that. I thought the credit agreement route would work. But after the replys it seems not.
