I need help/assistance regarding a Simple Procedure claim that was posted through my door on Thursday 5th October by Sheriff Officers.

 

The claim by Capquest/Shoosmith is regarding a catalogue debt which I believe should be statute barred as the date that a default was issued was 10/07/2012.

 

I suffer from a long term illness and also depression and around that time was in and out of hospital frequently and for one reason or another, ignored the debt!

 

Capquest/Shoosmith are now pushing to recover the debt which was initially owed to shop direct for the sum of £449.37.

As I rely solely on benefits, I am unable to pay this without putting myself in further financial difficulty.

 

Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated!

By the nature of the said agreement the payments to be made each month fluctuated from month to month depending on use.

 

3.It was a term of said agreement that a failure to meet any payment on a due date would render the account in default and would entitle the claimant to serve a notice of default on the respondent requiring the respondent to remedy the breach within 14 days failing which the agreement would be terminated.

On or around 10/07/2012 the respondent failed to make payment of a sum which had fallen due and the said account thereby entered into default.

send it to the Sherriff clerks office

the Scottish SB defence

which I think runs.

The following defence is all you need if it is SB

1 The Claimant's claim was issued on (insert date).

2 The Defendant contends that the Claimant's claim so issued is a claim in contract and is statute barred pursuant to the provisions of The Prescription and Limitation (Scotland) Act 1973, Section 6

If, which is denied, the claimant contends that the Defendant is in breach of the alleged contract,

in excess of 5 years have elapsed since the date on which any cause of action for breach accrued for the benefit of the Claimant.

under scottish laws the debt is now extinquished

.

3 The Claimant's claim to be entitled to payment of £x or any other sum, or relief of any kind is denied.

Just to clarify, I put this in D1

2 The Defendant contends that the Claimant's claim so issued is a claim in contract and is statute barred pursuant to the provisions of The Prescription and Limitation (Scotland) Act 1973, Section 6

.

3 The Claimant's claim to be entitled to payment of £x or any other sum, or relief of any kind is denied.

.

I tick C3 disputing the claim

Do I enter anything in D2 Why should the claim not be successful?

 

Apart from filling in my personal details and what you have instructed me to, do I simply hand the form into the court?

Could I have one more piece of advice, please?

 

I have completed form 4A, in connection with the matter above, and about to submit it.

 

However, when reading through page one of form 6A, there is a paragraph entitled WHAT SHOULD YOU DO NEXT. There is a sentence that states,you must send a completed response form to the court and to the claimant.

 

Does this mean that I must photocopy form 4A and send it to Capquest, or would it be to Scott and Co, the Sheriff Officers, and if so should I send it "signed for"?

Many thanks in advance,

D

Update regarding the above case:

 

Having submitted form 4A to the court with all the relevant details advising of the date of the debt and stating that the debt should be statute barred,

I was somewhat taken aback this morning as I received a form SO1,

stating that the respondent has indicated to the court that the claim will be disputed!

 

I have been ordered to attend a case management discussion on 26th January 2018!

 

Surely the debt is statute barred?

 

Apparently the claimant and I are encouraged to contact each other to seek to settle the case or narrow the issues in dispute before the case management discussion.

 

Should I contact Capquest or not?

 

Any advice would be very much appreciated!

as expected

 

there is no point in contacting them

its statute barred end of.

 

its only a chat IF it happens at ALL.

 

the sheriff might well dismiss the case if the fleecers provide no written evidence the debt is not SB'd.

sit on your hands.

Many many thanks for your advice, it's truly appreciated.

 

There's one thing that I am puzzled by, perhaps you can explain?

 

As the debt is statute barred,

why did the sheriff not declare it so,

and instead arrange for a case management discussion?

 

regards

D

evidence its not statute barred..

 

the sheriff has no knowledge nor legal access to such information

until/if the claimant claims otherwise
