    • Thank you very much ericsbrother. I will pass this on to the residents of that Close, hopefully they do not pay that company for the privilege of having those signs.
    • Didn't need to submit an N245.  So long as I'm unemployed this is suspended and as I've said, at my age the chances of me getting work are very, very low.  I looked at the N245 form and it was identical to the N56 form.  I also took advice from the National Debt Helpline.  They were very nice and helpful so if anyone's afraid of calling them, they needn't be.   They also told me that if I did want to submit the N245 I could also submit the form N160 which gives help with fees.  I decided just to submit the N56 as requested, ticking the box unemployed as you suggested.  The Court accepted that.  They have left it open that should I find work then Lowells would be free to reapply to the Court which is what I expected.  However, it is unlikely that scenario will arise so as far as I'm concerned, the matter is over.  If the impossible happens and I do get a job, then I will deal with that as and when it arises.   Had I not been so careless in the first place by forgetting the Hearing date and gone to Court to fight my corner, then this would have been killed stone dead a couple of years ago.  However, what is done is done but as the old saying goes, there is more than one way to skin a rabbit.   Again, thank you for all your help.  You've been marvellous 😀    
    • Cheers for reply. I kind off thought that after I handed it in but wanted to seek further advice as I still work at the Co. I have been there 2 years
    • I'm having a bit of fun with a former landlord who I'm aiming to serve a Rent Repayment Order on. The problem I'm now having is that I think my Council's selective licensing department is mis interpreting the law. The issue is that according to their own guidelines I should, as a tenant in the property for more than 3 years, have been consulted before a license was issued. The council is now saying that I should not have been consulted at all.   The Council says  "I can confirm that the Council conform to the requirements of Schedule 5 of the Housing Act 2004 which sets out the meaning of “relevant person” for the purposes of consultation. The Act specifically states that any tenant who has an unexpired lease of 3 years or less is excluded from the consultation process prior to awarding a Selective Licence. That is why you were not consulted."   Schedule 5 says, in the only reference to 3 years at all "13(1)In this Part of this Schedule “licence” means a licence under Part 2 or 3 of this Act. (2)In this Part of this Schedule “relevant person”, in relation to a licence under Part 2 or 3 of this Act, means any person (other than a person excluded by sub-paragraph (3))— (a)who, to the knowledge of the local housing authority concerned, is— (i)a person having an estate or interest in the HMO or Part 3 house in question, or (ii)a person managing or having control of that HMO or Part 3 house (and not falling within sub-paragraph (i)), or (b)on whom any restriction or obligation is or is to be imposed by the licence in accordance with section 67(5) or 90(6). (3)The persons excluded by this sub-paragraph are— (a)the applicant for the licence and (if different) the licence holder, and (b)any tenant under a lease with an unexpired term of 3 years or less."   If correct this means tenants are never consulted.   Is this correct ? And if not, why not ?

Some years ago, Cabot acquired five credit card debts I had with BOS/Halifax/IF/Barclays/Lloyds.

This amounted to a substantial sum and was the result of 'getting my fingers burnt' in property development.

There is no entry in my Credit report for any of these amounts, or from Cabot.

 

For the past several years I have been paying an agreed £1/month on each account to Cabot, no payments missed or late.

They seem quite happy with this and don't bother me.

This amounts to the princely sum of £60 / year in reduction of the substantial debt, less whatever they spend on administration/letters etc.

 

I am almost seventy and have negotiated substantial debt write-offs with NatWest, Capital One and Tesco directly.

Cabot would not write their debts off.

 

With my sisters help I have tried to negotiate a settlement of £2000, (ok the total debt is around £40,000), but they keep saying no.

 

I have pointed out to them that if I live to 80 they will only get £600 and to 90 they will get £1200...

..and I will have no assets to leave,

but they are adament I keep paying £1/month each account.

 

I could simply keep paying this and let it die with me, but I want a 'clean sheet'.

 

I have requested a SAR within 40 days.

 

1) Assuming they respond in the timescale but do not send any signed novation agreement or original /certified copies of the original agreements bearing my signature, can they actuallly DO anything if I stop payment?

 

2) I am selling the modest house I have in the UK (no equity) and going to live with family in France. If I just leave the UK and don't give any French adress what would/could they do?

 

3) If I did either of 1 or 2 can they retrospectively place entries on my credit report?

thanks

Novation - see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Novation

 

I am advised by StepChange that one request will cover all accounts - that has also been confirmed by Cabot. Why do you think I am being 'cash cowed' - please explain comment.

send the CCA1974 request and see if they are enforceable or not - if not you are being cash cowed and not told you owe but not need to pay

Novation is not applicable to agreements covered by the CCA1974...its called an Assignment

firstly

its a Subject Access Request..dunno where Search came from?

 

 

2. under an sar, which to a dca is pretty much pointless, they are not obliged to send any of your agreements or whatever you asked for like the novation or the deeds.

[be careful upon what site you are following - some of these debt websites boarder on the ridiculous freeman of the land twaddle and give very dangerous and in the end costly advise]

 

 

3.your debts are very old, they all would have defaulted years ago, as such they are removed on the defaults 6th birthday, never to return [unless you let them WIN if they issue a CCJ claimform]

 

 

4. I admire your wish to clear your sheet before you pop your clogs,

but in all reality,

if these debts have been sold to debt buyers,

then have you ever wondered why??

why didn't these big multi national companies crush me in court?

why did they sell my debt off for peanuts [

 

 

probably because the debts are made up of a substantial amount of unlawful charges and or PPI and or any other insrances etc that can all be reclaimed

or that they don't hold enforceable paperwork as the account is so old, so they sell it on.

 

 

shame you didn't think about these things? before you blindly paid off you other debts already

could have saved you £1000's already...

 

 

if whomever you are currently paying cant produce enforceable signed agreements [as i'll guess every card was prior to apr 2007)

one might question why, legally you are paying them at all.

 

 

its an easier and cheaper way to clear your debts prior to death

that way your estate or assets are safe from future claims

 

 

these full and final pay offs you've made

I do hope that you have kept copies of all the signed letters from the various creditors

that say the debt is now dead and that they wont sell the remainder on to debt buyers ?

 

 

for whomever will admin your estate on that sad day

because if you haven't got those signed letters.

and they are not water tight upon sale of the partial settlement.

 

 

it could comeback and bite them after your death.

 

 

cash cowing means blindly paying debts off or blindly partially settling a debt without first checking that they are all legally enforceable first.

[stuff the morality card]

 

 

or that you are not blindly still paying a debt to a DCA that they have no legal right to even demand money upon.

 

 

hence a CCA request for EACH debt.

Thank you for the reply. I did NOT pay off the other debts - they saw the hopelessness and wrote them all off.....and yes all letter confirmations are held safely and are watertight.

 

The debts that were sold to Cabot did NOT have unlawful charges and did NOt have any PPI.

SAR was advised by Step Change (who only advise, not manage).

 

It is a step to go through. I do not expext to see any assignment (apart from original letters from CC companies staing they had passed it to Cabot) or Novation.

 

What I DO NOT think they will produce is the original or certified true copy of the agrement that was held by the CC company...way back before 2007.

 

This is what I am trying to get answer to in my original posting. If I simply stop payments when no agreements are produced what CAN they do??

 

1) Assuming they respond in the timescale but do not send any signed novation agreement or original /certified copies of the original agreements bearing my signature, can they actuallly DO anything if I stop payment?

 

2) I am selling the modest house I have in the UK (no equity) and going to live with family in France. If I just leave the UK and don't give any French adress what would/could they do?

 

3) If I did either of 1 or 2 can they retrospectively place entries on my credit report?

1). Issue court claim against you if they think it is worth it. They sometimes do this, even if they can't get hold of CCA, in the hope of gaining default judgement as you did not defend.

 

2) issue court claim to last known UK address and win judgement by default, as you did not know about it. Not really wise to move without giving new correspondence address. If you gave a French address, i doubt you would be subject to enforcement in France if you had no means to pay. They would have to think it was worth paying French lawyers and issue proceeding in your nearest French court. Very unlikely to bother.

 

3) original creditor (OC) should have placed default, it stays on for 6 years and can be updated by any debt buyer. If the OC did not apply default in error, a debt buyer can add the default, but it must relate to original default date. If you have only ever paid token payments, the accounts were in default because you were not making the actual minimum payments required under contract.

Thank you for that.

3) the OC DID place defaults on Credit file but have dropped off after 6 years. Can you clarify if Cabot CAN or CANNOT add default if I stopped paying?

No they can't.

 

Once 6 years has gone by and you were just making token payments, these payments are nothing to do with orginal default.

HAve received a reply from CABOT stating they are unlikely to be able to provide CC agreements within the 12 days period, but have written to original companies and would hope to do so within 40 days......

 

One interesting part of the response was that regarding my Bank of Scotland CC they are unlikELy to provide this so will no longer pursue collection of that account...

(although stating that it should not be considered written off as the debt legally remains).

 

Hope they cannot unearth the other original agreements (from around 2000-2005/6)
