Hey,

 

I haven't posted on here in a long time but I have just received a Claim Form from Lowell Solicitors on behalf of Provident.

 

I used to work in litigation, but that was 7+ years ago (unqualified legal assistant), so whilst I am familiar with small claims and county court processes, I am a little rusty all the same, so I hope to get some information from people in the know...

 

The date of issue is 31/01

 

I have filed AOS

 

I am calculating the date for the defence to be by 04/03.

 

I have made a CCA request to Lowell

 

Plus I have made a CPR 31.14 request to Lowell Solicitors

 

The part that I need help with if is... I don't really know how to defend my claim. Do I just hope that they cannot find the agreement, unable to provide a legible copy, or there is an issue with the contents etc?

 

If I remember rightly then this loan dates back to 2010/11 - in which case it might be statue barred? I have made a payment to them in almost the same amount of time. I will need a copy of the agreement to see what date is on it.

 

Is there anything else I should do or be aware of?

 

I stopped paying because I was struggling with my mental health; I received a bi-polar diagnosis whilst battling other health issues - so I just lost all touch with reality for a while.

 

Thanks in advance!

Ok so far. The key bit of information you need is last date of payment, which i would suggest you obtain from Provident. Give them a phone call to ask for this information to be sent to you and follow up in writing if necessary. Provident should be able to send you a copy of the statement showing when you last paid and confirm the date the account was defaulted.

 

Provident should still be able to access your records. They just need the loan reference which Lowell should have provided. They will ask basic questions to identify you e.g full, date of birth, full address at time of taking out the loan.

We could do with some help from you.

Many thanks mark

 

Just to clarify this debt was assigned to Lowell on the 26/06/2015 and you state your last payment was ....

 

What was the date of your last payment?

 

About 1 month after taking the loan

 

Has this loan been topped up again and roughly how many payments have you made since entering the agreement ?

Just a quick update on this one...

 

I sent a CPR 31.14 request to Lowell Solicitors, today they responded...

 

"Upon reviewing the account, a commercial decision was made to close the account. The claim issued in this matter has been discontinued, a copy is enclosed for your information."

 

I'm guessing that they never had any of the documents they referred to in their pleadings!

 

Success!

 

Thanks everyone for the help and advice.
