Sorry, but I'm not sure that I agree in this case in respect of obtaining compensation from Marston. They may be acting directly on the instructions of the magistrates warrant which has been obtained by the energy company.
I think we should bring this discussion to an end now until Marston have an opportunity to have a look at it – although I'm still waiting for contact details
In the same position, bought car from dealer May 2018 set up DD only for DVLA to cancel 12 months later due to no registered keeper. Their website says you can not tax a car without registered keeper. Have complained via their procedure ( still ongoing) but they still want to take me to court for penalty £93. Have had a reply which states their system allows for third party to tax car and that there is no requirement for a registered keeper.
So if no keeper needed why not continue with DD?
Once resolved you might well be looking at some form of compensation from marstons and the previous supplier, but best option to resolve is to follow BankFodder's advice. Marstons would assume the energyco were correct with the warrant so in a way they are as innocent as you, they merely acted on the Warrant issued by the magistrates Court. Might be GDPR issues if the previous supplier gave third party debt details to you also..
They need to send a proper Letter Before Claim/Action giving 30 days along with Pre Action Protocol forms, which you ignore and send an ericsbrother snotty letter instead to the tame solicitor that sent it. DRP are not solicitors so I would ignore it
