    • Yes, my initial view is that @unclebulgaria67 is probably right and that because it was a magistrate's warrant, it would be the energy company that would have been in control of the situation directly. Unfortunately this will be much more difficult to deal with then dealing directly with Marston but anyway if you give us your details as requested, we can at least get Outlook from that direction as well. I'm also wondering about the position of your landlord in this. As you have taken up a tenancy in a particular property then I would have thought that one of the terms of the tenancy would be that you should be entitled to quiet enjoyment. Although the landlord may say that it is not their fault and it is down to the previous tenant, at the end of the day you have a contract with the landlord who has certain responsibilities. I think we may consider involving the landlord in this as well. You say that there have been letters addressed to the previous tenant. What have you done with those?
    • Yes please. We have certain direct access to Marston and we may be able to get someone to look at this at a senior level. Please email us as requested with your own contact details and name of previous tenant.   We can't guarantee any particular result but we can promise you that it will be looked at.
    • they say in letter dated 20/01/20 that the agreement was terminated on 30 July 2017 and cannot be terminated twice, so your VT request is invalid. startline issued termination or Default notices on the following dates: letter: 30/03/2017 termination notice  liable for payment: arreaers to date : £365.38 the balance of: £10,586.50 total: £10,951.88 7 days notice else ROG+sums outstanding. .......................

    • thank you.   have you had issues paying credit before you took any of these out?   i'e were you keeping a good handle upon your credit file and it wasn't shot with any defaults or payment markers during the period when you applied and were successful in getting any of this additional credit?   my thoughts are ...should the above not be the case and your credit worthiness was good... so couldn't p'haps introduce some irresponsible lending complaints in association to them … it might be an idea to give all your creditors the heads up that times are hard and you wish them to help you, as they are duty bound to do, by freezing interest and any penalty fees to allow you to ride out this present financial hardship till things improve ...   how does that sound...   dx

Ok, new here, so please go easy.... :)

 

First off after reading some threads here today,

i feel ive left this a bit long,

but any advice is appreciated and will be taken on board.

 

In December I received a Summary Court Summons for £3006.64. For unpaid shop direct handled by capquest.

 

My Return date is 18th January (this is next week i know, so not a lot of time to decide what i'm gonna do)

 

The original account with shop direct was 2010, and it was passed to capquest in 2012.

 

I'm happy to admit full liability and offer to set up a repayment plan.

 

BUT, if i recall at the time, I was barely able to make minimum repayments, yet they kept increasing my credit limit.

Can I dispute the claim and try to reclaim some charges/interest to reduce my final figure??

 

This is my first full day off work in a few weeks, and no kids at home, means I finally have the time needed to get my response in.

 

Again I'm sure i've done this all wrong, but just need some quick advice due to my circumstance...

the only thing you could dispute would be the monthly penalty charges {£12 late/over/letter etc]

these could be upto £24 every month you didn't pay until they sold the debt on

but you'd need the statements to confirm their value to you.

 

get an sar running to shop direct today

 

or go ring them [shop direct] and ask for a statement of charges

they MIGHT send one to you but the statements are better.

though these probably wont be more than a couple of £100's.

 

have you paid shop direct anything in the last 5 yrs?

i'm not 100% certain when my last payment to shop direct was, i have since changed/closed the bank I used so can't retrieve any statements... it is very possible.....

 

Ok i just called shop direct and although the woman was trying to palm me off to capquest, she did say the last payment she could see on her system was for £270 April 2012 so just under 5years :(

 

And just too add again, I've left this all quite late, i have to reply to the court by Next Wednesday.....

 

Apologise if this looks as though i'm spamming the thread...

 

I want to send everything off tomorrow.

 

Should I just admit liability and offer to repay... As ive left it so long i don't know if there is anything else i can do???

if you return date is not till the 17th then hang fire and we'll review things later..

what date is the hearing?

 

my gut reaction is to defend it and get a CCA request running to capquest and the Scottish eqiv to a CPR running to the solicitors who are?

 

99.9% of these DCA claims in Scotland simply turn out to be speculative and the pursuer hopes for a default undefended judgement where no paperwork is looked at nor needed.

 

once you defend and request proof etc, they back off.

 

which court is this too please

Thanks Andy, will try and get a read of this over the weekend...

I'm a chef with 4 kids so free time is like the holy grail to me!!...lol

 

@dx100uk , even if I defend and they don't back off,

i guess its just a case of setting up a repayment plan anyway, so nothing lost really I assume...

so defending, means I may/will need to go to the court on the 1st of February.

.. you think it would be fine to represent myself?

 

Hopefully as said they may just back off,

but gotta prepare for the worst case scenario I guess..

I think i may need some pointers on filling out the "note of proposed defense/counterclaim"

 

i need to;

 

"State which facts in the statement of claim are admitted"

 

"State briefly any facts regarding the circumstances of the claim on which you intent to rely"

 

"State details of counterclaim, if any"

 

I fear that the original debt could have been around the 3k figure,

but its been so long ago I cant actually remember,

 

 

but I know I was late on a lot of payments and would have racked up charges a lot,

and over the 2 years of me having the account,

they kept ramping up my limit but i guess trying to get these back I would have to do outwith this case as it is now with capquest.

 

A friend has just pointed out this passage in the original statement;

 

"conform to copy statement of account which will be produced in any defended process to follow hereon"

 

does this mean they have the original statements saying the figure is correct??
