Hello.

Lowell's never know when to stop harassing people.

 

 

In a nutshell,

A mint card default (almost 6 yrs old)

Lowell took over the debt although I was in dispute.

 

 

Immediately issued a Statutory Demand (4 yrs ago)

They LOST the case and the Stat Demand was set aside due to Mint credit card Ts& Cs were not correct and proof of mis selling.

 

Now just received a Claimform who have piled on £880 worth of interest charges (original debt £4300).

 

I need help...

Can they send a claimform after a Stat Demand has been set aside?

 

Can the pile on Interest as this has been in default for almost 6 yrs?

 

Thanks for any advice

 

Regards

 

Barry

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

What is not mentioned, that Lowell brought me to the courts with a Statutory Demand in 2013 and lost the case which was set aside as all the contract, documents etc from Opus were not correct and mis selling was also mentioned.

Just found out that the original "CITI" card was taken out before 2007 (2001) does this make a difference?

Hi

An Update.

As the date is getting close for me to submit my defence,

I can supply the following update.

I sent a letter to Lowell asking for CCA & CPR request dated 20 May.

 

I received a letter from Lowell Solicitors confirming the outline that this relates to

"Opus account opened on 16 Feb 2000.

The last payment 28 December 2011"

 

 

My request (cca/ cpr) has been sent to the original creditor"

 

I have had no further response.

 

As I need to put together a defence after the "Acknowledgement of service " was sent,

I am a little confused how to approach this.

 

The last payment to the original creditor was December 2011:

Is this "Statute Barred" or does the timer start from the date of LowellsDefault notice?

 

The "original creditor was actually "CITI" bank. I cannot find any agreement for OPUS

 

Lowell have taken me through the court with this same account in 2013 with a Stat Demand and the court through out and "set aside" the case.

Can this be put in my defence statement?

 

Just need a little help from you guys if possible.

 

Thanks

 

 

Barry

Yes but referring to this requires a customised defence rather than a holding defence which puts the claimant to strict roof to disclose its evidence..lets give it some thought.

 

Your defence is due on Monday 19th June by 4.00pm

######Defence#######

 

1. The Defendant contends that the particulars of claim are vague and generic in nature. The Defendant accordingly sets out its case below and relies on CPR r 16.5 (3) in relation to any particular allegation to which a specific response has not been made.

 

2.The Claimant's claim was issued on 18th May 2017....this follows a previous attempt by the claimant on which they issued a Statuary Demand dated XXXXXX 2013 which District Judge XXXXXX at XXXXXXX county court Set a Side due to an ongoing dispute.It is denied I ever entered into any agreement with Opus.

 

2. Paragraph 2 is denied I have never held an account with Opus.I have held an account with CITI .

 

3.Paragraph 3 is accepted I am aware the account was assigned but remains in dispute and I have therefore not acknowledged the assignment pursuant to The Law of Property Act 1925.

 

4. On receipt of this claim I requested by way of a CPR 31.14 request and a section 78 for copies of any documents referred to within the Claimants particulars to establish what the claim is for. To date they have failed to comply to my section 78 request and remain in default of my request.

 

5.It is therefore denied with regards to the Defendant owing any monies to the Claimant, the Claimant has failed to provide any evidence of assignment/balance/breach requested by CPR 31. 14, therefore the Claimant is put to strict proof to:

 

(a) show how the Defendant has entered into an agreement with Opus; and

(b) show how and evidence the nature of breach and service of a default notice pursuant to s87 (1)of the CCA1974;

© show how the Defendant has reached the amount claimed for; and

(d) show how the Claimant has the legal right, either under statute or equity to issue a claim;

 

6. As per Civil Procedure Rule 16.5(4), it is expected that the Claimant prove the allegation that the money is owed.

 

7. On the alternative, as the Claimant is an assignee of a debt, it is denied that the Claimant has the right to lay a claim due to contraventions of Section 136 of the Law of Property Act and Section 82A of the consumer credit Act 1974.

 

8. By reasons of the facts and matters set out above, it is denied that the Claimant is entitled to the relief claimed or any relief.

 

 

Copy and paste post to MCOL before midnight...to retain the submission date.

 

Regards

 

Andy
