Hi All,

 

Today I have received a letter from Moriarty Law:

 

Our Ref: xxx

Acc No: xxxx

Amount Due: £185.88

Claim No: xxxxx

Original Lender: Talk Talk Limited

 

Dear Mr. X,

 

Following our earlier letters regarding the above outstanding balance we have now issued proceedings in the County Court at Northampton to effect repayment of this debt.

 

You will shortly receive a County Court Claim from Northampton County Court along with an information pack containing details on how to respond.

 

It is still not too late to amicably resolve this matter and therefore please call our offices within 14 days on 02031264544 where our litigation executives will be happy to help and explain the options that are open to you.

 

Yours faithfully,

 

Moriarty Law

 

I believe this "debt" relates to my previous house where I lived with an ex-wife.

My ex took out a restraining order against me and so I was effectively kicked out of the house.

I contacted Talk Talk who supplied the phone and broadband and told them I was no longer living there and they sent me a change of ownership form.

I filled it in, sent it off and thought that was the last of it, and cancelled my direct debit.

 

 

Until today, when I received the above letter.

I have access to my Experian credit report and nothing mentioned on there about it either.

 

 

After checking my emails, I signed up on 10/11/2012.

After checking my bank statements, it seems the last payment I was for £10.11 on 04/07/2013.

Will I definitely be getting a claim form or is there a chance they are trying to scare me into paying up?

If you take the time to look at the threads, you will find example defences and then you can start to put together your own. Do not post your defence to the court, until you have posted it to your thread, so that those with the knowledge can review first. Just keep an eye on when your defence is due and start to work on it now, rather than rush it later.

After searching similar threads I've found a defence which seems to be good for my case too. Please can someone check that it's ok before I send it. Thanks

 

 

1. The Defendant contends that the particulars of claim are vague and generic in nature.The claimant's’ particulars of claims disclose no legal cause of action as the claimant's statement of case is insufficiently particularised and does not comply or even attempt to comply with CPR part 16.2 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 claim is denied.I am unaware of what debt the claimant refers to.I have requested information pertaining to the claimants claim by way of a CPR 31.14 request sent on 06.10.2017 and wich the claimant received it on the 09.10.2017

 

The claimant has failed to respond.

 

3.The claim is denied the Claimant has not served a Notice of Assignment pursuant to the law of property act 1925 and the Claimant is put to strict proof to:

 

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

(b) show how the Defendant has reached the amount claimed for; and

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

 

4.Notwithstanding the above should the alleged amount claimed include an early termination charge(s) amounting to the entire balance of the remaining contract. OFCOM guidance states that any Early Termination Charge that is made up of the entire balance if the remaining contract is unlikely to be fair as it fails to take into account the fact that the provider no longer has to provide and pay for their service.

 

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

 

6. 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 crediticon Act 1974.

 

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

That was the last direct debit payment I made of £10.11. At the time that payment was made, I was in a contract with TalkTalk at a previous address. I informed them I was effectively made homeless and sent form to transfer the contract to my ex and never heard anything since, until now. So that's why I'm unaware of the debt is.

But you are aware of it...you cant state in a defence that you are unaware...you could state that you did previously hold the account but transferred it to your ex on xxxxxxx ...you will need a copy of this form you refer to though .

I never kept a copy of the completed form. I do however have an e-mail from TalkTalk which confirms that I called them and that it was about Change of Ownership, and a link to the form. Would that help?

Just a slight addition in blue above.

 

It may be worthy of also adding that you made a final payment of £ x on the xxxxx at which time the balance was nil ?

Thanks Andy. With regards to final payment, there wasn’t really a “final payment” made as such, it was more a case of me cancelling my direct debit after sending off the change of ownership form. I wasn’t at the property anymore so I didn’t want to carry on paying for services there.

In all honesty I dont think you can transfer an account as such..you could terminate it by giving notice and your ex reapply for an agreement in her own name..hence it did not happen and the charges continued in your name....its a weak excuse and not really a valid point...therefore I will remove all reference.

AN UPDATE

 

Yesterday I received a letter from Moriarty Law along with an old bill that I owed TalkTalk £102.67 and payment was due on 09/07/2014.

 

Their letter says that they are happy to settle out of court or via small claims mediation service.

 

Today I received a letter from court Notice of Proposed Allocation to the Small Claims Track. I must complete N180 and file it with court office by 08/12/2017.

 

Any advice on what to do next?

Correct......every claim they issue...they proceed to allocation and then inform the court they will not be in attendance and just rely on a witness statement to keep their litigation costs down.....Im sure the courts will soon cotton on to their practice...issuing claims with no intention of attending because debtors have submitted a defence.
