I had a non fault accident in July 2011.

Stupidly i entered into a credit car hire agreement and should have done my homework first.

 

eventually the other insurer admitted liability and thought everything was settled as i got a letter saying this.

 

A few days ago i got a letter from a solicitor saying that payment for their services have not been paid (Car hire), and they will be raising court action within 14 days against other party.

 

Also states that they will not seek payment from me as long as i co operate etc.

... Had this same letter in 2013.

 

Have read on here about statute barred and see that in Scotland its 5 years.

Im in Scotland but the company is in England.

 

Any advice you could offer?

I done all my worrying in 2011 after reading horror stories so no point me getting all stressed again. I'll go with the flow :-)

 

Thanks

please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...

so done in Scotland

if so yes extinguished not just statute barred

but as you didn't sign it anyway

not your problem.

 

 

i'll move this to the motor insurance forum

as it will attract those guys.

 

 

don't think you can be held liable anyway.

 

 

the sols are just trying it on to find a mug.

Thanks for your advice. Much appreciated.

 

Ill update on here if i get any more letters.

 

I think you need to tell whoever is chasing, that this relates back to an acccident and car hire in 2011. That the matter is now statute barred under Scottish limitations law and in any event, they should ask the Insurers of the at fault driver about this, as any car hire costs were due to the accident their driver caused. Advise that this is the end of the matter as far as you are concerned and you do not want to be contacted again.

We could do with some help from you.

Best to nip it in the bud, as the staff that deal with chasing these debts might not realise the position.

The OP needs to check the jurisdiction in the hire agreement to see what law applies.

 

The hire company aren't going after the OP, just asking for their help to recover the OP's outstanding credit hire liability.

 

I would cooperate.
