    • I came back home on Monday and found this Claim form in my letter box. In the light of what I have explained earlier in regards to this debt claim, can anyone tell if I have any chance fighting it in th Court. SW in the last conversation request the proof of me living somewhere else, which I can't provide. They have info from the landlord of property being rented to me, I was there on electoral register, had bank account opened on this address, Driving licence had this address etc., but I wasn't living there.      Name of the Claimant -  Southern Water services   Date of issue – 12/06/2019     Particulars of Claim   The Claimant is statutory...etc The Claimant claims the sum £969 for unpaid water and or sewerage charges payable under s. 142-144 of the act and the Claimant Charges Scheme. The unpaid sum of £969 is for period 01/04/2014 - 08/07/2015. The claimant claims interest under section 69 of the County Courts Act 1984 at the rate of 8% a year  from 08/07/2015 to 11/06/2019 and also interest at the same rate up to the date of the judgment or earlier payment at daily rate of £0.21   What is the total value of the claim? £1423   Have you received prior notice of a claim being issued pursuant to paragraph 3 of the PAPDC ( Pre Action Protocol) ? yes Letter before Action   Have you changed your address since the time at which the debt referred to in the claim was allegedly incurred?  Yes, COA address.   Did you inform the claimant of your change of address? No Is the claim for - a Bank Account (Overdraft) or credit card or loan or catalogue or mobile phone account?    No, water charges   When did you enter into the original agreement before or after April 2007 ? Allegedly after - April 2012   Do you recall how you entered into the agreement...On line /In branch/By post ? No   Is the debt showing on your credit reference files (Experian/ Equifax /Etc...) ? No, no anymore   Has the claim been issued by the original creditor or was the account assigned and it is the Debt purchaser who has issued the claim. Southern Water - original creditor   Were you aware the account had been assigned – did you receive a Notice of Assignment?   Did you receive a Default Notice from the original creditor? No.   Have you been receiving statutory notices headed “Notice of Default sums” – at least once a year ? No   Why did you cease payments? Never. I wasn't aware of bills.   What was the date of your last payment? Never   Was there a dispute with the original creditor that remains unresolved? Yes, creditor did not take my notice of bills being wrongly issued in my name.   Did you communicate any financial problems to the original creditor and make any attempt to enter into a debt management plan? No  
    • If the case was brought before a UK civil court would UK rules apply or foreign rules?   I wonder if the original contract would strate what jurisdiction it's terms would be decided by?   I note that UK contracts frequently have a clause that says in so many words that any disputes  will be interpreted under UK law.
    • http://www.hadefpartners.com/News/333/Limitation-periods-in-the-United-Arab-Emirates   One of the key limitation periods to be aware of is the limitation period for a claim for breach of contract. We have been approached by many clients (including in-house counsel at large multinational and local companies, and even international law firms) who believe that the limitation period for a breach of contract (including a commercial contract) in the UAE is 15 years. What they are often not aware of is that the limitation period for commercial contracts (as set out in Federal Law 18 of 1993 (the “Commercial Code”)) is usually 10 years. Therefore, multi-million dollar claims dating back over more than 10 years may now be time-barred.   https://www.jstor.org/stable/3381662?seq=1#page_scan_tab_contents
    • how long did you sign up for ? if they claimed DD after that period …….

    • This is a bit of a lengthy one but I’ll summerise best as possible.
       
      THIS IS HOW THE PHONECALL WENT 
       
      I was contacted by future comms by phone, they stated that they could beat any phone contract I have , (I am a limited company but just myself that needs a business phone and I am the only worker) 
      I told future comms my deal, £110 per month with a phone and a virtual landline, they confirmed that they could beat that, £90 per month with a phone , virtual landline  they also confirmed they would pay Vodafone (previous provider) the termination fee. As I am in business, naturally I was open to making a deal. So we proceeded. 
      Future comms then revealed that the contract would be with PLAN.COM and the airtime would be provided by 02, I instantly told them that this would break the deal as I have poor 02 signal in the house where I live as my partner is on 02 and constantly complaining about bad signal
      the salesman assured me he would send a signal booster box out with the phone so I would have perfect signal.
      so far so good.....
      i then explained this is the only mobile phone I use for business and pleasure, so therefore I didn’t want any disconnection time in the slightest between the switchover from Vodafone to 02
      the salesman then confirmed that the existing phone would only be disconnected once the new phone was switched on.
      so far so good....

Letter of Claim from Lowell Solicitors old sygma credit card

Hi, Looking for help and advice.

 

Some years ago I took out a credit card in store with Sygma Banks UK. (guessing around 7 years ago)

 

Having fallen on hard times due to chronic depression and anxiety attacks I was retired from work on ill health grounds about 5 years ago and came to an arrangement with Sygma to pay £5 pm.

 

The Account was then sold to Moorcroft Group and then on to Lowells.

I maintained the repayment until just over 3 years ago and have paid nothing since.

The balance listed is £1235.

 

Apart from the occasional letter asking me to get in touch and a heap of telephone calls which I haven't answered (number now blocked) I have heard nothing from them until recently and

 

 

I have now received a letter of claim from Lowell Solicitors stating that unless I contact them or make arrangements to pay within the next 14 days, a claim will be made against me in the County Court Bulk Centre without further notice incurring extra fees such as interest and costs.

 

My credit file is clear except for a closed account for Lowell which will be 6 years old in November this year.

 

The original agreement wasn't signed at the point of sale as I remember them sending me another form though the post a few weeks later to sign. I can't remember any further details though.

 

I'm pretty sure the original application was ticked to have PPI insurance although it wasn't taken up on the agreement form. I mention this due to my ongoing illness in case it might be relevant.

 

The only paperwork I have now is the letters from Lowells.

I don't have the money to pay it although in full.

 

If it's at all possible I would like to protect my credit file.

I was thinking of just setting up a standing order of £5pm which was the original payment plan and ignoring their letter. Is that likely to stop court action.

 

If protecting my credit file is not possible then I'm thinking of ignoring them and taking the CCJ on the chin and waiting for 6 years until it expires.

 

Any advice on how to proceed would be very welcome.

Thank you in anticipation.

It does say "a claim WILL be made against you in in the County Court Bulk centre without further notice"

lowell say a lot of things and are litigious. Just because a claim gets made, doesnt mean they will win. Infact almost all their claims are based on unenforceable debts. They just rely on debtors having total lack of knowledge on how to defend.

Ok. First response to them. CCA them. Stop them in their tracks. Do it first thing tomorrow and if they cant produce a valid agreement ( they very likely cant), then they wont get any CCJ against you.

 

Meanwhile sar the OC and get reclaiming all the charges.

 

Lowell are chasing hoping you dont find out the truth about the debt. Its very likely theres a bunch of charges to reclaim, and/or they wont get the CCA, even though it was fairly recent.

in eh?

which one?

many sigma cards were 'badged' so let us know

as the rep that sold it to you [did you get button-holed or took it out to pay for a store item on tick]

got a healthy bonus for selling the PPI I bet you have on it,

I think the card was originally obtained via JJB sports to purchase a treadmill.

There won't be any PPI or fees included in the balance as I'm certain there was no insurance on the agreement and I contacted the company directly when my finances collapsed and they agreed to stop interest and fees.

Up to that point it was paid as per the agreement with no late or missed payments.

I was away all day yesterday so sending the CCA request and SAR today.

Remember, CCA to lowells, SAR to the OC

Hi and thanks again for the previous advice given.

 

I sent a CCA request to Lowells on 25th May

 

 

around 2 or 3 weeks later I received an acknowledgement stating that they are in receipt of my letter and will put further action on hold until they receive a copy of the CCA from Sygma.

 

They are obviously well outside of the timescale for providing the information but unless someone advises otherwise, it seems prudent to let sleeping dogs lie.

 

I didn't send a SAR as I don't need copies of statements and Lowells should provide a copy of the CCA if one is available.

 

 

TBH I didn't know what else I should be asking for.

 

Thanks again.

you DO need copies of thestatements IF you don't already have them

and more importantly you need a copy of the Account/comms log.

 

 

get it running.

 

 

the SAR is nothing to do with lowells and they wont know about it.

so even if sigma do hold the CCCA, you keep quiet.

you need to read up about how DCA's work.
