Hi

 

If you agree that i can add it in to strengthen my claim that the default notice has been produced by the Claimant then i have added the following:

 

The Notice of Assignment I have received from Vanquis dated 22 September 2016 is printed on the company’s headed paper and I believe this to be a genuine document. (see exbibit 1f).

 

On the 10 July 2017 the Claimant has sent what they claim to be the Notice of Assignment which is not on any company headed paper and is in a different format, I do not believe this is the genuine document. (see exhibit 1g)

 

I'm not sure if i should add it in to the bit about the default notice or leave it seperate? What do you think?

Hi, I added another bit on as i've been doing some reading on the forum and some posts have talked about the claimant being able to send a reconstituted document if the original has been sent so i thought i would add some extra in so that the judge is clear as to why i am putting it in. I just want to prove that the claimant has produced the Default Notice, and the notice of assignment also being on blank paper helps me do this but not sure if i am wording it correctly.

 

On the 10 July 2017 the Claimant has sent what they claim to be the Notice of Assignment which is not on any company headed paper and is in a different format, I do not believe this is the genuine document. (see exhibit 1g). I have submitted exhibit 1g to support my claim that the default notice that the Claimant has sent (exhibit 1e) is not the original default notice and has been produced by the Claimant.

Did the original Directions not order the disclosure of all original documents ?

Hi Andy thank you for replying

 

, the order did say original documents and the default notice I have is just on blank paper.

 

When looking through my documents that I've received I noticed that I have two Notice of Assignments, 1 from Vanquis on official headed paper and then the same notice of assignment copied word for word that lowells sent that is on blank paper and in different font and didn't know if I should put that in to prove that the default has been produced by Lowells as has the 2nd copy of the Notice of assignment.

 

Thank you on advance for any advice you can give.

Then include it in your statement...they have not complied with the court directions and are passing off templates to mislead the court of their compliance.

Is the wording below ok to put in?

 

On the 10 July 2017 the Claimant has sent what they claim to be the Notice of Assignment which is not on any company headed paper and is in a different format, I do not believe this is the genuine document. (see exhibit 1g). I have submitted exhibit 1g to support my claim that the default notice that the Claimant has sent (exhibit 1e) is not the original default notice and has been produced by the Claimant.

Best to just complete your statement in full and repost for checking.....rather than keep posting a paragraph each day for checking.

Hi

 

Witness statement with the added paragraphs in, is this ok?

 

Thank you in advance for checking it over, hoping to have it sent off tomorrow.

 

Macker16

 

I make this Witness Statement in support of my 2 defences dated 13 July 2017 and 20 November 2017 and in response to the claimants claim dated 12 June 2017 which was submitted through the County Court Business Centre.

 

1. It is my understanding the claimant is an Assignee, a buyer of defunct, disputed or bad debts, which are bought en masses as portfolios at a much reduced cost of the amount claimed….10p to 15p in the pound and which are already written off as capital loss and claimed against taxable income by the original creditor. The claimant then issues claims en masses with little or not evidence or documentation as a ‘fishing exercise’ claiming the full amount of alleged debt to maximise profit.

 

2. As an assignee or creditor as defined in section 189 of the CCA this applies to this new requirement on assignment of rights. This means that when an assignee purchases debts(or otherwise acquires rights under a credit agreement) it also acquires certain obligations to the borrower including duty to comply with CCA requirements (such as the rules on statements and notices and other post-contractual information) The assignee becomes the creditor under the agreement. This ensures that essential consumer protections under the CCA cannot be circumvented by assigning the debt to a third party.

 

3. Background

 

Save insofar of any admittance it is accepted that a contractual relationship did once exist between myself and Vanquis. On receipt of this claim form I could not recall the exact details of any agreement or debt and therefore reasonably sought clarity and information from the claimant

 

On the 4 July 2017 I formally requested via CPR18 and s.78 CCA 1974 (see exhibits 1a/1b)

 

A copy of the original agreement

A statement of account

A copy of the Terms and Conditions as applicable at the time of the agreement

A copy of the Default Notice/termination notice

A copy of the Notice of Assignment showing the claimants legal right to take action

 

Having made a claim the above data should have been immediately and fully available from the claimant and as per the above formal requests duly sent to the defendant to allow a swift conclusion.

 

4. Disclosures

 

The claimant did not respond to any of my requests made on the 4 July 2017 and has not provided all the documentation that was requested on the court order 4 October 2017. (see exhibits 1c)

 

 

The claimant has failed to provide the original agreement and terms and conditions. The Claimant has only provided a copy of an on screen Digital Signature Application details which cannot be regarded as a copy of the Original Executed Credit Agreement pursuant to section 78 of the CCA1974 or sections 60 and 61 and 61A of the CCA1974 and therefore the claimant is prevented from relying on this disclosure as the basis of a Credit Agreement and is therefore unable to enforce this document as a Credit Agreement pursuant to section 127.1.....

 

( za)section 55(2) (disclosure of information), or

 

(a)section 65(1) (improperly executed agreements)

 

And is also devoid of any Terms and Conditions. (see exhibit 1d))

 

I have received a document claiming to be the ‘default notice’ however it is highly inconsistent in that it is not on headed notepaper, it contains no formal company information e.g company numbers and is not in the same format of other letters sent e.g letter from Vanquis dated 22 September 2016. (see exhibit 1e)

 

The Notice of Assignment I have received from Vanquis dated 22 September 2016 is printed on the company’s headed paper and I believe this to be the original document. (see exbibit 1f).

 

On the 10 July 2017 the Claimant has sent what they claim to be the Notice of Assignment which is not on any company headed paper and is in a different format, I do not believe this is the original document. (see exhibit 1g)

 

5. Conclusion

 

The claimant has failed to comply with my formal requests on the 4 July 2017. The claimant has not provided all the documentation that was requested by the court on the 4 October 2017 and I can only presume that the claimant does not have the legally required original agreement and terms and conditions and has merely tried to obtain an undefended default judgement.

 

I believe that the facts stated in this witness statement are true

Hi,

 

I know your all really busy but can somebody have a read of my WS to see if it's ok to send with the 2 additional paragraphs that I've added in about the Notice of assignment and the wording of it.

 

Many thanks for any advice and sorry for keep asking you to keep checking it. Hope to get it sent today.

Your happy with the wording because I was concerned that the judge would think I'm putting in my opinion instead of fact?

 

Thank you again Andy for taking the time to respond,once this is over I will be making a donation to this amazing site, how much will depend on the outcome of this case (fingers crossed)

The main point you want to get across is that the claimant has not complied with the order 4 October 2017 and is circumventing by providing templated responses to mislead the court.

 

Dont forget to add your headers and sign/ date it

By the headers do you mean the bit at the top that says

In the ......... County court

Claim number

Between

Claimant

And

defendant

Then

Witness statement of. .......

 

As that is what I've currently got

 

And I'll ask the same question again as I've had 2 different answers previously on the forum, do I sign the copy of the WS that I am sending to the claimant?

 

Many thanks

Hi just to let you know that I've still not received a copy of the claimants ws so I contacted the courts who confirmed that they received it on the 18 April. I told them I was suppose to also receive a copy 14 days before the hearing but haven't so thet asked me to make my request by email.

 

How is this now fair as the hearing is on Wednesday and I've not had sight of their WS and therefore feel at a bit of a disad vantage here.

 

Anything else I can do?

At the hearing on Wednesday inform the court that claimant has failed to comply with his directions....and that you have only (if) just received their statement by your actions...which you consider put you at a disadvantage.

 

As per the directions listed in the Notice of Allocation any party that fails to comply risk their claim/defence being struck out.

Thank you for replying. Its unlikely that I'll now receive the document from the court before the hearing.

 

I'll say that to the judge, will update you if I receive ws before the hearing.

 

Thanks again

    • sadly no they can just take. and it wasn't a private company no.    
    • Happy Easter.   Does anyone know it the Unfair Contract Terms Act 1977 applies to a Commercial Mortgage Offer?   Thank you  
    • Still no correspondence. I have spoken to the court, who, as it stands have nothing from Southern Water, but have a back log, and technically it could be in the system waiting to be processed. The direction either way, is to send it to the judge for further review and decision.  MCOL is showing no further updates. Am I right in thinking that I would have heard from Southern Water independently from the court process.  The last correspondence stated the claimant was to reply to the court and defendant. So I’m taking it as I haven’t heard, nor would the court. Anyone know what the next step would be, if Southern Water haven’t replied in time?
    • How long have they given you to send the form back? The statutory period is seven days but many EA's give you more.   Just some basic things about CTax bailiffs you probably already know.   They have no powers to force entry, however, they can gain access through an unlocked door or take goods from the garden. They can call on any day of the year between 6 am and 9 pm.   If the Bailiff does not collect,  and the warrant is returned to the council all fees will disappear and you will be left with just the original debt.   So if you did nothing and you are happy for the threat of the Bailiff calling for up to twelve months you could just "sit it out" and eventually you may get away with just paying the council the original debt without fees. Many subscribe to this course of action.   The downside is,  for the period mentioned there is the continual threat of the bailiff calling and all the stress that goes with it. in addition most importantly, the authority, on the return of the warrant may just pass it to another bailiff.   So perhaps over the weekend, you could decide which path you want to pursue.    I don't want to persuade you either way but personally, I would rather just get it sorted, (With the authority if possible) and get on with the important stuff in my life :).
    • Bought a car for £350, drove it home with insurance and MOT, but no tax. Parked it outside the house while someone else was taxing it, however the other person (who was to borrow the car for a few weeks) mixed up some log books and taxed the wrong car.    5 hours later, private company came around, picked up the car and took it 20 miles away into London (as opposed to the local inpound 2 or 3 miles away).     Didn't realise it was gone until the morning, called 101 and confirmed it was taken for no tax. Called impound, they want £260 to release it, said I had half hour to pick it up or it goes up another £100.    My fault 100%, shouldn't have parked it without tax on the road.    Now, it wasn't parked dangerously, it wasn't abandoned. Should it have only been clamped first? I'd pay the £100 DVLA fee but the car isn't worth getting back for £360. Just seems sneaky that a private company took it, and transported it 20 miles away into London (it would take an hour and a half each way at least). 
  • Our picks

    • 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....

    • The FSA has announced large fines against DB UK Bank Limited (trading as DB Mortgages) - DeutscheBank and also against Redstone for their unfair treatment of their customers.
      Please see the links below for summaries and full details from the FSA website.
      It is now completely clear that any arrears charges which exceed actual administrative costs are unfair and therefore unlawful.
      Furthemore, irresponsible lending practices are also unfair and unlawful.
      Additionally there are other unfair practices including unarranged counsellor visits - even if they have been attempted.
      You are entitled to refuse counsellor visits and not incur any charges.
      Any charges for counsellor visits must not seek to make profits. The cost of the visits must be passed on to you at cost price.
      We are hearing stories of people being charged for counsellor visits for which there is no evidence that they were even attempted.
      It is clear that some mortgage lenders are trying to cheat you out of your money.
      You should ascertain how much has been taken from you and claim it back. The chances of winning are better than 90%. It is highly likely that the lender will attempt to avoid court action and offer you back your money.
      However, you should ensure that you receive a proper rate of interest and this means that you should be seeking at least restitutionary damages - which would be much higher than the statutory 8%.
      Furthermore, you should assess whether the paying of demands for unlawful excessive charges has also out you further into arrears and if this has caused you further penalties in terms of extra interest or any other prejudice. This should be claimed as well.
      If excessive unlawful charges have resulted in your credit file being affected, then you should take this into account also when working out exactly what you want by way of remedy from the lender.
      You should consult others on these forums when considering any offer.
      You must not make any complaint through the Ombudsman. your time will be wasted, you will wait up to 2 yrs and there will be a minimal 8% award of interest and no account will be taken of any other damage you have suffered.
      You must make your complaint through the County Court for a rapid and effective remedy.
