The letter says if I don't respond within 14 days they will take court action. The client is listed as capquest, who are a DCA, so I'm not even sure what this relates to.

 

Am I right in assuming if i make a SAR request now, they have to complete that before they can take any action?

 

Or should this be a CCA request? Surely a SAR would cover the CCA as well?

As I said, I don't know who the original debt is with. that's part of what i need to establish. I have no information beyond this letter.

 

As for it not saying "will" -

 

"If we cannot agree during the next 14 days how you will repay the amount outstanding to capquest investments limited, we will issue court proceedings against you for the full sum outstanding together with legal costs. We will not contact you again to warn you that proceedings will be issued."

 

So you'd lose that bet.

under GDPR they cant do that

unless you've already had the PAP letter of claim pack and ignored it?

I'm confused, surely that letter of claim would come after they start legal proceedings, not before?

 

I do not believe i have received one of these.

seems like you've been away for a while then

things have changed a lot now with GDPR

 

99% of credit files are free now

noddle clearscore etc etc

whats in the black box below client name that usually tells you what the debt was

OK, noddle lists it as capquest investments LTD and the type as mail order, but does not indicate who the original creditor was, and i dont know from this limited information.

 

This is not relevant though to my initial question.

so its a catalogue debt

twill be either shop direct

or

jd Williams

 

so its covered by the Consumer Credit Act [we didn't know that till now..hence needing to know!]

so CCA request time.

 

which is a legally binding request they have 14 working days

an sar to a DCA is pointless

to be honest i do not believe i have ever had any dealings with either company, though i suppose it could have been an arm trading under a different name. I have never, in all my days, had a catalogue that i ordered stuff from.

 

out of interest, why would a SAR be pointless? surely they need to provide that just like everyone else?

 

edit - should the CCA go to capquest? or shoosmiths?

not legally binding as such and they don't have to supply the agreement in an sar either.

so pointless

they only ever have records since they were assigned [bought] the debt anyway

so an sar goes to the original creditor

but at this stage its not necessary

 

cca goes to the owner, shoos are a solicitor they work for their client..the debt owner

so i'm assuming i should send the CCA to capquest, but inform shoosmiths of the situation, which should prevent them from taking the court action they have said will be taken?

they cant do court

only the owner can.

but wouldn't the owner charge a firm of solicitors, like shoosmiths, with doing this? is it not possible thats why this letter was sent? I'm asking both for clarity, and to know if this lot have threatened something they are unable to follow through on. if the latter, surely that's illegal in some way?

you seriously need to get reading claimform threads and about assignment.

 

a solicitor is not a creditor so cant issue court claims

they represent the client in any legal matters

 

its a civil debt, so not illegal as in criminal, but unlawful.

but what they are doing is neither.

 

capquest have told them to start the legal process

shoos have written stating such giving one last chance so to speak,

 

even though they say they will, it doesn't actually mean 'they will'

if they cant get paperwork they wont!

 

type in the words speculative claimform

 

in the search cag box of the top red toolbar and get reading

I'm not trying to be a dick here, but i'm finding parts of what you are saying confusing. for example -

 

"a solicitor is not a creditor so cant issue court claims

they represent the client in any legal matters"

 

surely they would get the solicitors to make a court claim on their behalf? Is that not the point of having solicitors, to, as you say, represent them in legal matters, like the filing of claims with the court?

 

you also said -

 

"capquest have told them to start the legal process"

 

which supports what i said above. it seems your answers are edited for brevity, and frankly are not helping me to understand what you're saying. you give an answer, but its very short and does not always actually answer the question asked.

 

I get you're a volunteer, but you could try to explain a bit more when answering, as right now i'm doing what you've told me, but if a similar situation was to come up, i'd need to ask again as I don't understand why i'm doing this.

honestly i'm feeling a little stupid with all this, which, at the risk of sounding arrogant, is a very unusual situation for me. and again, not wanting to come across like a [removed], and i thank you for the help, but it feels like you are giving me the info you think i need, rather than answering what i am asking, which is why my level of understanding is low.
