    • it will be mainly voters and the fact you have changed address on everything too. nothing you can do about it sadly ….   usually takes a month or two for things to settle themselves
    • I only just signed up to vote, I have never voted before, but I've never had a problem accessing my credit file in previous years, it's like it's just been deleted?    Here's a message from another credit check place I found.   I have just moved in the last month but my bank account, new address etc are all up to date and I literally called everyone when I moved, internet, electric, gas, mobile contract, bank, everyone on the day I moved here,   When trying to get my credit report I use my new and previous addresses.   Here's a message I got ...... Why have I been unable to access my Credit Report? When completing the authentication process for access to your credit report, you will have received one of the following in-product messages to indicate why you have not received access: Thin File This means there is currently not enough credit history information held in your TransUnion file for us to produce a credit report. You can find out more about how to build your credit history in our guides. Not Found If you have not been found by TransUnion, this does not necessarily mean you do not have enough credit history or that you have poor credit history.

    • I was going to suggest cooperating with her over the letter copies so as to look good in court, but on further consideration BazzaS & SuperVillain are right.   However, to make it easy for the judge and to show her up in court I would tweak the letter and add that this is the third time you've asked so that the expert can be "jointly instructed" and you are anxious to move things on as the two of you are already beyond the court's deadline.    You are writing to her but in a certain sense you're writing "to" the judge and what you are writing needs to be concise and follow the court's instructions - unlike her gibberish.

Hi All

 

submitted SAR for Vanquis CC debt on 19th July 2017.

 

Have received a reply dated 2nd August 2017.

 

It says receipt of my letter confirmed and apologies for delay in response.

 

Letter then states

'A request has been sent to the original creditor for a copy of the agreement and statement of account. These will be forwarded upon receipt.'

 

Further advises

'The above details relate to an account opened in September 2007.

Last payment was made to the original creditor on 26th August 2011.

Please see below for a list of transactions.'

 

There then follows a list of shops names with transaction 1, transaction 2 etc typed next to them. No monetary amounts just shop names.

 

Letter ends with statement

'We have suspended action on the account to allow for the original creditor to provide us with the requested information.

If you wish to speak to a member of our staff please call etc etc.'

 

Can anyone advise:

 

1. Will Vanquis provide the information?

2. What if anything should I do now?

 

Any help greatly apprfeciated.

 

cheers

 

Steve

Well incredibly I have received a parcel from Lowell this morning. It contains:

 

1. A letter from Vanquis quoting the Electronics Communication Act 2000 stating that I have entered into an agreement online and that my signature is therefore not required.

 

2. Pages of Digital Signature Application Details

 

3. Pages of transactions on the account.

 

4. A letter from Lowells stating I have 14 days to contact them and agree a payment or arrangement or 'we may apply to enter a CCJ'.

 

The last payment made to Vanquis was on 26/8/2011. Is the debt statute barred?

 

What if anything should I do at this time?

Received a Letter of Claim today.

 

Opening paragraph states:

 

As you are aware we act for Lowell Portfolio 1 Ltd and we write to inform you of its intention to issue proceedings against you in the county court for failing to pay an outstanding sum owed to it.

 

The second paragraph begins - This letter is being sent to you in accordance with the Practice Direction on Pre-Action Conduct and Protocols etc etc.

 

The paragraph ends with - Ignoring this letter may lead to our client commencing proceedings against you and may increase your liability for costs.

 

Letter proceeds to detail particulars of debt advising when debt was assigned and providing a statement from that date to now.

 

letter finishes by saying - Please note that if we do not receive payment or other response from you within 30 days, we are instructed to issue a claim without further reference to you together with interest and costs estimated below.

 

 

Do I continue to ignore?

Just received a response from Lowell.

 

they state:

 

"S5 states that an action founded on simple contract shall not be brought after the expiration of six years from the date on which the cause of action accrued.

 

The account was taken out on September 2007 and went in to default in April 2012 as a result of non payment. it was at this time the initial 6 year limitation commenced as this was the initial cause of action. This would allow till April 2018 so the debt is not statute barred."

 

The last payment made on the account was 26th August 2011 and previous advice on this thread said that meant the statute barred date was August 2017.

 

I am now a bit confused. Can someone advise which is correct and give some advice on next steps please?

the opinion is cause is from the breach of contract, which re a credit card wld usually be around a month or two after the last payment.

but, these claimants say the dn or default date when whichever suits them in the circumstances. and unfortunately some district judges have gone with that.

it seems to be a matter in issue for the courts atm.


IMO

Don't know if its is relevant but Vanquis statement shows they began charging me the following with effect from June 2011:

 

OVER LIMIT CHARGE DEFAULT FEE PLAN INT FREE

LATE PAYMENT CHARGE DEFAULT PLAN INT FREE

BILLED FINANCE CHARGES DEFAULT INTEREST

BILLED FINANCE CHARGES PURCHASE INTEREST

 

these charges were applied for 6 months with the last charges in January 2012. I made a payment in June, july and August but nothing since then.

 

I wondered:

 

1. Does the fact I was getting 'default charges' from 2011 have any bearing?

2. Why do the charges stop in January 2012 but according to Lowell the default wasn't until April 2012?

 

Also, There are ROP fees on the account from October 2007 until March 2011. Can these be reclaimed?

 

Again, any advice on what to do next welcomed

are you saying I can reclaim all the default charges?

they total more than 25% of the outstanding debt.

How would I go about that?

 

How do I reclaim ROP charges?

 

Sorry if being thick but can I claim charges back from vanquis when they have sold the debt?

 

Is my next action to write back to lowell and dispute the cause of action date based on the view

1st missed payment is the initial cause of action

stating i will defend in court on that basis or do i wait until Lowell issue a court claim?

As Lowells claim the cause of action date is April 2012 when they say the card defaulted

but kind advice given on this site suggests the cause of action date is August 2017 when the last payment is made we seem to be at an impasse.

 

Lowells have said they will give me until 2nd February to contact them or they may proceed with court action so what should I do know?

Today I received a Claim Form from the County Court Business Centre.

 

Particulars of Claim

 

Defendant entered into a Consumer Credit Act 1974 regulated agreement with Vanquis under account reference **************

 

Defendant failed to maintain the required payments and arrears began to accrue

 

The agreement was later assigned to the claimant on 15/2/2013 and notice given to the defendant

 

Despite repeated requests for payment the sum of ***** remains due and outstanding.

 

Note: they have changed the date of assignment to 2013 from all previous correspondence which stated 2012 and the SAR response which stated same.

 

Any advice on my next steps greatly appreciated

Thank you for the advice. I will follow as requested.

 

May I ask, does the fact that the claimant has put the wrong date for assignment of debt have any effect on their claim?

don't do this until andyorch gives the ok

but going by the above thread to date

lowells are relying upon the late registering of the dn to gauge SB date,

 

pop up on the MCOL website detailed on the claimform.

.

register as an individual

note the long gateway number given

then log in

.

select respond to a claim and select the start AOS box.

.

then using the details required from the claimform

.

defend all

leave jurisdiction unticked.

click thru to the end

confirm and exit MCOL.

.

get a CCA Request running to the claimant

leave the £1PO blank and uncrossed

.

get a CPR 31:14 request running to the solicitors

.

type your name ONLY

 

no need to sign anything

.

you DO NOT await the return of paperwork.

you MUST file a defence regardless by day 33 from the date on the claimform.

 

......

 

part two

pop up on mcol and register this defence:

 

alternative whereby claimant intimates SB date=defaulted date and that has been registered months after the last payment

 

 

Defence

 

1 The Claimant's claim was issued on 21st February 2018.

 

2.The date last payment made was the 26th August 2011

 

3.The Default Noticed was issued April 2012 and served eight months after the initial breach thus the cause of action delayed by 8 months and the Limitations period prolonged to 6 years and 8 months which in effect allows the creditor to stop time running and the creditor having effective control of when a limitation period begins or even starts to run.

 

4.Therefore the Defendant contends that the Claimant's claim so issued is a claim in contract and is statute barred pursuant to the provisions of section 5 of the limitation act 1980. If, which is denied, the claimant contends that the Defendant is in breach of the alleged contract, in excess of 6 years have elapsed since the date on which any true cause of action for breach accrued for the benefit of the Claimant.

 

5.The Claimant's claim to be entitled to payment of £(Insert total amount on claim form) or any other sum, or relief of any kind is denied.
