    • I came back home on Monday and found this Claim form in my letter box. In the light of what I have explained earlier in regards to this debt claim, can anyone tell if I have any chance fighting it in th Court. SW in the last conversation request the proof of me living somewhere else, which I can't provide. They have info from the landlord of property being rented to me, I was there on electoral register, had bank account opened on this address, Driving licence had this address etc., but I wasn't living there.      Name of the Claimant -  Southern Water services   Date of issue – 12/06/2019     Particulars of Claim   The Claimant is statutory...etc The Claimant claims the sum £969 for unpaid water and or sewerage charges payable under s. 142-144 of the act and the Claimant Charges Scheme. The unpaid sum of £969 is for period 01/04/2014 - 08/07/2015. The claimant claims interest under section 69 of the County Courts Act 1984 at the rate of 8% a year  from 08/07/2015 to 11/06/2019 and also interest at the same rate up to the date of the judgment or earlier payment at daily rate of £0.21   What is the total value of the claim? £1423   Have you received prior notice of a claim being issued pursuant to paragraph 3 of the PAPDC ( Pre Action Protocol) ? yes Letter before Action   Have you changed your address since the time at which the debt referred to in the claim was allegedly incurred?  Yes, COA address.   Did you inform the claimant of your change of address? No Is the claim for - a Bank Account (Overdraft) or credit card or loan or catalogue or mobile phone account?    No, water charges   When did you enter into the original agreement before or after April 2007 ? Allegedly after - April 2012   Do you recall how you entered into the agreement...On line /In branch/By post ? No   Is the debt showing on your credit reference files (Experian/ Equifax /Etc...) ? No, no anymore   Has the claim been issued by the original creditor or was the account assigned and it is the Debt purchaser who has issued the claim. Southern Water - original creditor   Were you aware the account had been assigned – did you receive a Notice of Assignment?   Did you receive a Default Notice from the original creditor? No.   Have you been receiving statutory notices headed “Notice of Default sums” – at least once a year ? No   Why did you cease payments? Never. I wasn't aware of bills.   What was the date of your last payment? Never   Was there a dispute with the original creditor that remains unresolved? Yes, creditor did not take my notice of bills being wrongly issued in my name.   Did you communicate any financial problems to the original creditor and make any attempt to enter into a debt management plan? No  
    • If the case was brought before a UK civil court would UK rules apply or foreign rules?   I wonder if the original contract would strate what jurisdiction it's terms would be decided by?   I note that UK contracts frequently have a clause that says in so many words that any disputes  will be interpreted under UK law.
    • http://www.hadefpartners.com/News/333/Limitation-periods-in-the-United-Arab-Emirates   One of the key limitation periods to be aware of is the limitation period for a claim for breach of contract. We have been approached by many clients (including in-house counsel at large multinational and local companies, and even international law firms) who believe that the limitation period for a breach of contract (including a commercial contract) in the UAE is 15 years. What they are often not aware of is that the limitation period for commercial contracts (as set out in Federal Law 18 of 1993 (the “Commercial Code”)) is usually 10 years. Therefore, multi-million dollar claims dating back over more than 10 years may now be time-barred.   https://www.jstor.org/stable/3381662?seq=1#page_scan_tab_contents

    • This is a bit of a lengthy one but I’ll summerise best as possible.
       
      THIS IS HOW THE PHONECALL WENT 
       
      I was contacted by future comms by phone, they stated that they could beat any phone contract I have , (I am a limited company but just myself that needs a business phone and I am the only worker) 
      I told future comms my deal, £110 per month with a phone and a virtual landline, they confirmed that they could beat that, £90 per month with a phone , virtual landline  they also confirmed they would pay Vodafone (previous provider) the termination fee. As I am in business, naturally I was open to making a deal. So we proceeded. 
      Future comms then revealed that the contract would be with PLAN.COM and the airtime would be provided by 02, I instantly told them that this would break the deal as I have poor 02 signal in the house where I live as my partner is on 02 and constantly complaining about bad signal
      the salesman assured me he would send a signal booster box out with the phone so I would have perfect signal.
      so far so good.....
      i then explained this is the only mobile phone I use for business and pleasure, so therefore I didn’t want any disconnection time in the slightest between the switchover from Vodafone to 02
      the salesman then confirmed that the existing phone would only be disconnected once the new phone was switched on.
      so far so good....

I have six outstanding debts that defaulted over six years ago.

 

Five have been passed on to DCAs, one remains with the original company.

 

I pay a nominal amount each month.

 

From reading various threads on the site it seems that once passed to a DCA payment should still be made to the OC.

 

I am confused because in the case of an outstanding amount to the AA they have only recently sent a letter advising they have assigned the debt to Intrum.

 

In the case of four of the other debts I am confused as to who I should be paying, especially when you receive a letter from a DCA saying they have bought the debt. If they haven't then how do they get the debt and if I pay them why does the OC not contact me when the monthly payment is missed?

If the debt have been assigned to the DCA then payment should be to the new legal owner...assuming they are legally allowed to collect on the debt and there is no dispute with the original creditor for withholding payment.


We could do with some help from you.

Can you provide more details on each debt please

 

One is a loan, four are cc and one is an overdraft.

 

All defaulted from 2011 to end of January this year.

 

The loan has been with Blair Oliver & Scott, Drysden Fairfax, Westcot and now Ingrum.

 

CCs - HSBC

Lloyds - passed to PRA

Sainsburys - now with Cabott

Tesco - just passed to DCA

M&S - still with M&S.

 

I pay a nominal sum each month for the above.

 

My Lloyds overdraft has been with Cabott for some months. Lloyds defaulted me and so did Cabott so I have these two remaining. I emailed Cabott to get them to remove it, they said they would. Wrote to Lloyds to get them to remove the default. They wrote back apologising for it not being removed sooner.

 

I have not requested a CCA for any of them. I am going to though.

 

Thanks!

Overdrafts don't fall under the normal CCA request, but I guarantee that it's littered with reclaimable fees and charges?

 

When did you take the loan out?

 

Was this a Halifax loan?

 

Was there any PPI on it?


Who ever heard of someone getting a job at the Jobcentre? The unemployed are sent there as penance for their sins, not to help them find work!

If that is the case how come Cabot contacted me saying they bought the debt from Lloyds and Sains?

 

They have also on a number of occasions offered me a "settlement" figure on both amounts which I have declined on both occasions!

 

PRA - so are they chasing for this debt when in fact they probably don't own it? I have only had one conversation with them as they told me they can't contact me as I had specified no contact by phone or letter in a letter I sent them over two years go. This is all very strange.

 

I had a letter from the AA last week telling me they have assigned my debt to Intrum .

 

I will certainly CCA the DCA ones for sure.

 

Thank you!

Just because they bought a debt, doesnt mean its enforceable. CCA them. The offer of a settlement/discount also shows that its unenforceable. They just want to get SOMETHING from you befor eyou find out how its unenforceable.

What do you mean by "unenforceable"? Hold fire I just checked and it is what I thought it was!

 

In that case would the OC sell the debt to for example Cabot for x amount and then Cabot basically try their luck to get me to pay any amount?

 

My AA loan is not with Intrum - I am getting confused as I posted about another debt that they had bought.

 

I will check the AA loan and update :)

True I have been here on and off since 2011 :wink:

however in my defence I have found it a bit of a grey area with regard to DCA especially when you have had a letter from the OC advising of them passing the debt on.

 

Do you pay the DCA or not?

As I said above I have been paying some a minimal amount but will stop now and CCA them.

just type no need to hit reply with quote

makes a thread twice as long.

several unnecessary of previous posters responses removed

 

there is passing on, whereby the dca states their client is still the OC

those you ignore the dca and onlt ever deal direct with the OC.

 

then there is selling the debt on whereby you get a notice of assignment that tells you its been sold and now owned by xyz DCA.

typically you get a letter from the dca introducing themselves in the same envelope

 

brig explained all this years ago in your other threads here.

 

anyway, with and enforceable and signed consumer credit agreement they aint going nowhere.

which is why a CCA request is so important once a debt ha been sold on.

 

ideally you should have stopped paying years ago.

force their hand, then you findout the truth

Ok - noted what you say about hitting reply with quote......

 

I have posted 115 times - you over 124,000. Replies on here may be straightforward and obvious to some but others may find them not so easy to get their heads round.

 

If Brig explained this years ago - I didn't understand it all then as otherwise I would not have fretted as I have done over some of my still outstanding debts. I was more concerned with the defaults, finding employment again after redundancy started this mess, so by paying only a minimal monthly amount I at least stopped the harassment I experienced initially from both the OC and DCAs.

defaults shouldnt harm employment changes at all AS. not sure where you've got that from...

 

its better they are defaulted, as I think most of yours are ?

then the debts vanish from your credit file after 6yrs regardless to what you do with them ….paying or not, paid off or not

never to return.

 

you've highlighted the only thing a dca can do..harassment. that's about it really

they've no more legal powers than you or I.

No that's not what I meant at all. I was made redundant and the debts are a knock on effect from that - it took me a while to find further employment. Nothing to do with defaults I know!

 

Yes all mine have vanished with the exception of a Lloyds one that should have done some time ago. I wrote to them asking them to remove it and they replied apologising and saying they will get it removed. Cabot also filed a default which ended on 28.01.19 and which will go on the next update of my credit report. They should not have logged this default at all.

 

Thanks!

The AA loan I have that I have been defaulted on and which is no longer showing on my credit report as six years have elapsed has been passed to Cabot.

 

I have received SAR documentation which I requested from Lloyds and surprisingly the paperwork from the loan was included - have since noted HBOS are part of Lloyds.     On looking through the paperwork I came across the words "bad debt W/O".   I have written to Lloyds again to gain clarity on this as there was nothing relating to them passing this over to Cabot.      If the debt has been written off how have Cabot got their hands on it?     I still find it confusing how DCAs seemingly cherry pick debtors.   Is their a database they have access to or something?

w/o means the original creditors has written it off as bad debt on their books.

 

reclaimed against tax and got payouts from their business insurance scheme they might have

then they sell it on to a debt buyer for 15p=£1

then they come after you for the full value

it cant come back on your file.

 

see what cabot do.

So they do that and still sell on to debt buyer?   What low lifes eh?    Then the DCA will chase and harass for the original outstanding amount.    You couldn't make it up really could you.

 

Nothing from Cabot so far.     Thanks for the response.

Included in a SAR I requested from Sainsburys CC are lots of statements with the outstanding balance remaining exactly the same each month.      I have never been sent any of these statements.     Would that be because Cabot have been involved in chasing for money?
