Hi all

Looking for some quick advice on a court claim from Lowell dated 5th Feb who have a Lloyds overdraft debt sold to them in 2015 although it was around 2013 that Lloyds kept adding more and more charges and fees etc.

 

The POC is as follows :

Author Document

Debt assigned on 24/11/15 by Lloyds banking group PLC and the claimant claims

1. 3595.98

2.Statutory interest persuant to section 69 of the county courts act ( 1984) at a rate of 8% per annum from 24/11/2015 to 02/02/18

287.68 and thereafter at a daily rate of 0.79 to date of judgement or sooner payment

Ref ****************** ( there ref number here )

 

I will be defending fully

but was thinking of using CPR31.14 but the claim does not mention any documentation.

 

Also is it worth sending a SAR request today to help my defence.

 

As stated I know there are multiple charges on the account,

I also do not recall receiving and NOA or documents asking me to bring the account up to date in a set timescale.

 

Also as a side not I am currently self employed under contract work until the end of Feb so if it does go to court can I still receive a CCJ for being self employed or possibly unemployed if I do not get any contract work in the coming months ..

 

Thanks...

Yes thats it word for word !

 

One thing I initially thought is the line debt assigned..don't believe I got a NOA ...

 

You can also see they are adding interest as well..

 

I think initally the debt was £2600 made up of charges , but Lowell have been adding on since

well no they aren't adding interest

they are hoping to get a default judgement which would not be seen by any human, and that slips through

its for the JUDGE to allow 8% and not over several years either, typically only one year is allowed

 

I would assume as they always do that they've lefy this until just before SB date

or what they think is the SB date, to gain max int on it.

 

go ring LLOyds ask last payment date please

they have 24hs phone banking

or do you still have online access

keep getting passed from pillar to post by Halifax but not being deterred.

 

On a side note

I have received a letter today from Lowell on another debt ( Vanquis card ) for £710 ..

.I sent them a SAR request for this sametime I sent the 31.14 to their solicitors ,

guess what I have been offered a 40% discount....what a surprise !

This is another one that is full of charges etc but that is for another forum...

 

Spoke to Halifax and they cannot get into account for balance or last payment but will send out statements for within the next 5 working days.

 

What they did confirm is the account was closed March 2014.

I know that between 2012 to 2014 no payments were made by me

so in liklelyhood it is coming up to the SB period which is possibly why Lowell are going for it now.

 

Also checking paperwork I did the pre litigation letter from Lowells solicitors....

an overdraft?

aside from the last payment (have you checked that), when was the o/d taken out

 

Hi..

Awaiting documents for last payment...O/D was taken out in 2009

 

an overdraft?

aside from the last payment (have you checked that), when was the o/d taken out

 

Need to check figures but taken out on 2009 to 2012 when I lost job and then spiralled out of control with fees , chargers and honouring D/D's up to £3500 ..was left like that until 2015 and closed then passed to Lowell...

 

an overdraft?

aside from the last payment (have you checked that), when was the o/d taken out

 

Oh also not a signed in branch O/D but done over the phone with Halifax cust services so no signed docs to accept terms and conditions etc..

i was asking, as if it was after 2011 then the s61b cca act would apply. it wouldn't require signing though, just terms furnished at the time. then up to the court.

when was the last payment.

IMO

:-):rant:

Okay got a letter today from Lowell not relating to this but to 2 other debts they have purchased that I sent a SAR request for sametime as the SAR 31.14.

 

Apparently they are only sending me data since they purchased the accounts and not from previously as I will need to contact the original creditor for this.

 

Surely that is for them to either have all the previous paperwork or down to them to get the information from the OC if Lowell are the supposed owners ?
