    • Lowell/CCJ Long story short, I have been working in my debts the last few months as I'm looking at getting a mortgage this year.   Alas my main issue is an old CCJ that I found from Lowell, it was for what I assume can be described as a doorstep loan. The date the CCJ is registered is from a person of time when I was working away on the other side of the country. However even on returning home I can hand on heart say i never saw any paperwork from the court (I may have seen it but I'm 99.9% sure I didn't. I emailed Lowell last year to ask if they would agree to a mutual set aside and was given the template answer of they had followed the correct procedure to file it etc. The only other thing maybe of worth adding is that the default on my file and the CCJ are for different amounts (please see attached pictures) So I guess I'm asking if I have any options of getting it set aside? I can afford the payment in one but wanted to check if I have options to have it set aside rather than just having it as satisfied on my file for another 4/5 years

Hello people,

 

Its been a long time since I've had to do this so I'm looking for guidance.

 

My Partner has received a County Court Summons dated 22 March2018 for a Lloyds credit card.

The card was taken out in 2000 and the last payment made was in 2014 - according to the particulars the agreement was assigned to Lowells in March2015.

 

I am presuming there will have been letters from them but my partner WILL have ignored them, which is why I am guessing they have gone down this route - hoping this will be ignored and then gain judgement by default. The total claim is £2126.77

 

Obviously this is now time sensitive so I need to get moving with it - How do I reply to the summons and then how do I deal with Lowells?

 

Sorry its so sporadic but I do a lot of travelling with my job so sometimes its difficult to get things achieved.

 

Any advice, as always , gratefully received.

 

regards

 

OOT

Put in an acknowledgement with intention to defend and that will give you some breathing space.

 

Have you got any idea of how many late payment charges there are and at what level they were charged? Have you got the paperwork which refers to this – statements et cetera are you going to have to send an SAR?

Hi BankFodder,

 

 

I suspect there is very little paperwork - I just know that when the payments stopped and the letters started, most ( probably all) will have been ignored - It was not a good time for my partner....I know Lowells are claiming 8% PA from date of assignment to date of issue, but that's all I really can tell you.

 

 

So do I need to apply for SAR?

Thanks Jon

 

Claim has been responded to -

 

CCA request going to claimant today

CPR 31:14 going to solicitors today.

 

seeing as though Claimant AND solicitor are the same people ( Lowells) should I still send in 2 separate registered letters?

 

Thanks again

Thanks Andyorch....as I said, me being stupid.

 

 

So with regard to filing a defence - should I do that immediately or would it be better to wait nearer the deadline BUT make sure it is before - and also, the CAA and CPR will be going registered post on Saturday - obviously it would be tomorrow if it wasn't for the holidays, but do I include that in my defence that I have requested this info but obviously nothing has come back yet?

 

 

Thanks

So this is my first attempt of draft of Defence:

1.The defendant opened a Lloyds (credit Card) regulated by the consumer crediticon account under reference xxxxxxxxxxx on xx/xx/2000 (‘the Agreement’).

 

2.In breach of the Agreement, the Defendant failed to maintain the required payments and the Agreement was terminated.

 

3.The Agreement was later signed to the Claimant on XX/XX/2015 and written notice given to Defendant.

 

4.Despite repeated requests for payment, the sum of £19XX.XX remains due and outstanding. And the Claimant claims

1.The said sum of £19xx.xx

2.Interest pursuant to s69 Count Courts Act 1984 at the rate of 8% per Annum from the date of assignment to the date of issue.

3.Costs.

 

The Defendant contends that the particulars of claim are vague and generic in nature, neither is a recognisable account number offered with regard to this alleged credit card debt.

 

1. Paragraph 1 is noted. I have in the past had an agreement with Lloyds but do not recognise this specific account and have requested clarification by way of a CPR 31.14 and section 78 request.

 

2. Paragraph 2 is noted, however, I am unaware of a received default notice from the original creditor

 

3.Paragraph 3 is denied, I am not aware I received any Notice of Assignment from the claimant nor the original creditor.

4.Paragraph 4 is denied. I am not aware of any repeated requests for payment.

 

On receipt of this claim I requested information relating to this alleged debt from the Claimants solicitors by way of a CPR 31.14. on the xx March 2018 by recorded delivery.

 

Furthermore a CCA section 78 request was sent to the claimant Lowell Portfolio 1 Ltd, by recorded delivery on the xx March 2018, as at this time both the Claimant and acting Solicitors have failed to provide me with any of the documents requested.

 

4. It is therefore denied with regards to the Defendant owing any monies to the Claimant,

the Claimant has failed to provide any evidence of assignment or breach requested by CPR 31.14 and by a CAA request.

 

Therefore 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;

 

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

 

6. On the alternative, if 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 Credit Act 1974.

 

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

 

I would welcome any comments, criticisms and pointing in the right direction.

 

Many thanks

dx100uk & jon - thanks for replies:

 

The POC listed in red is taken verbatim from the claim form so there is no mention of default.....maybe just sloppiness on their part?

So, over the past 24 hours we have received 5 phone calls from a withheld number asking if we could ' call back to discuss an urgent matter - Please call 0333 556.............'

 

 

doesn't take a genius to figure out who that is!

 

 

I have up to the 23rd of this month to file the defence - should I hang on to it for a while or get it filed now?
