Hi all,



Defence was filed on time, sorry didn't post it up but have been really ill after heart attack.



This is the defence provided.



The Defendant contends that the particulars of claim are vague and

generic in nature. 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.


1. Paragraph 1 is accepted insofar that a relationship did once

exist between the Defendant and Vodafone however, I cannot recall

this account (Agreement) The claimant has yet to disclose a copy

of the Account/Agreement mentioned in particulars of Claim.



2. Paragraph 2 is denied ,the Defendant has not been served with a

notice of termination and the claimant is put to strict proof




3.Paragraph 3 is denied .The defendant is unaware of any legal

notice of assignment or Notice of Assignment pursuant to Law and

property Act 1925 Section 136(1).


4.Therefore the defendant denies owing any money to the Claimant

and the claimant is put to strict proof ,


Show how the Defendant has entered into an Agreement.

Show how the Defendant has reached the amount claimed for.

Show how the Claimant has legal right ,either under statue or

equity to issue a claim.



5.As per Civil


Rule 16.5(4) it is expected that the Claimant prove the allegation

that the money is owed; having been provided with written requests

for information under CPR 31.14 and to date have failed to provide

any such documentation as detailed on the particulars of claim.


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 1925.


7.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.


8.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.



Lowell replied to CPR letter saying as this is telecommunications matter it's not regulated by CCA 1974, Stated default notice does not apply as this is service agreement so no default issued, they say requested statements from original creditor and will contact when received.



They confirm that at no time has their client Lowell Portfolio ltd entered into any contract with me directly stating it was lawfully assigned and have requested copy of assignement, they acknowledge acknowledgement of service to defend.



Received a Notice of proposed Allocation to small claims track with a form N180 to fill in before 8th October 2018.



many thanks, this is making me bleeding ill.
