    • just to check - is it best to send the sar in before any sale deal is agreed?
    • Good advice thanks very much. Are there any guidelines on how long they should take to send said transcript? I was quoted 28 days on an information request today...    I have just sent two secure messages to NW.   The first was to state that they did not follow my instructions from this morning when I cancelled the DD authority held with PayPal, as they allowed PP to reinstate this mere hours later. I gave them formal notice that PP have no authority to take DDs from my account and so I will seek reimbursement from NW should they allow any in the future.    The second was a formal request for them to re-credit my account for all DDs taken by PayPal in the given time period, in accordance with the DD mandate. Reason being that I did not give PayPal the authority nor instruction to take those payments by DD.    Will relay this to the manager tomorrow and ask for a transcript so I can complain to the FOS if this is not sorted by end of play. 
    • Its directions agreed between both parties how the claim will proceed in preparation for the hearing...Fast Track Directions are not set by the court as in small claims track.
    • Make sure to ask for the name of the person you are speaking to, as well as a full email transcript of the call. If they ask why,  tell them everything on the call is being copied to the FOS for a full official complaint. They usually shift pretty quick.

    • 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....

    • The FSA has announced large fines against DB UK Bank Limited (trading as DB Mortgages) - DeutscheBank and also against Redstone for their unfair treatment of their customers.
      Please see the links below for summaries and full details from the FSA website.
      It is now completely clear that any arrears charges which exceed actual administrative costs are unfair and therefore unlawful.
      Furthemore, irresponsible lending practices are also unfair and unlawful.
      Additionally there are other unfair practices including unarranged counsellor visits - even if they have been attempted.
      You are entitled to refuse counsellor visits and not incur any charges.
      Any charges for counsellor visits must not seek to make profits. The cost of the visits must be passed on to you at cost price.
      We are hearing stories of people being charged for counsellor visits for which there is no evidence that they were even attempted.
      It is clear that some mortgage lenders are trying to cheat you out of your money.
      You should ascertain how much has been taken from you and claim it back. The chances of winning are better than 90%. It is highly likely that the lender will attempt to avoid court action and offer you back your money.
      However, you should ensure that you receive a proper rate of interest and this means that you should be seeking at least restitutionary damages - which would be much higher than the statutory 8%.
      Furthermore, you should assess whether the paying of demands for unlawful excessive charges has also out you further into arrears and if this has caused you further penalties in terms of extra interest or any other prejudice. This should be claimed as well.
      If excessive unlawful charges have resulted in your credit file being affected, then you should take this into account also when working out exactly what you want by way of remedy from the lender.
      You should consult others on these forums when considering any offer.
      You must not make any complaint through the Ombudsman. your time will be wasted, you will wait up to 2 yrs and there will be a minimal 8% award of interest and no account will be taken of any other damage you have suffered.
      You must make your complaint through the County Court for a rapid and effective remedy.

Cabot/restons claimform - Newday Marbles Card

Recommended Posts

Hi Folks,

 

Been disputing a debt with Cabot for some time and eventually it has been issued as a claim to which I have responded as per the guidance in the forum. Very helpful thank you.

 

So back in December 2018 I filled out my AOC and then 31CPR and then my Defence.

 

Today I received a letter from Cabot chasing the debt asking me to pay, are they allowed to send me a letter to collect when it has now been escalated to a court case? Where do I stand?

 

Any thoughts, guidance, greatly and warmly received.

 

Thanks.

Thanks Andy.

 

Was originally a Marble CC, due to financial difficulties the payments defaulted and a sum of £207 is owed. I am not in a position to repay. Eventually the court claim came through and as per the advice in the links above and a few others, I formed a response and am now awaiting a response from the court.

 

But in the meantime they sent me this letter asking me to pay, so just wanted to check if they were allowed to do that?

 

Cheers.

Sounds like they've done their old trick. Send setter out saying they're going to ask for judgement and demand payment before it's even gone through the full court process. Sadly it works most of the time and people think the ccj has already been granted.


Any advice i give is my own and is based solely on personal experience. If in any doubt about a situation , please contact a certified legal representative or debt counsellor..

I too had dealings with Cabot regarding an old credit card debt.

With the help of this site and various others I managed to fight them off.

 

It seems that they specialize in buying up old debts that have done the rounds and nobody has got anything from.

They then come on heavy with court dates and summonses.

 

What they don't have ar the original documents like the original contract, terms and conditions that were valid at the time of the CC being taken out.

All they have are some bad photocopies that they have hashed together in the office hoping that these will frighten you into paying.

That is the secret of their game...fear and your ignorance.

Remeber it is they who have to prove their case at every step of the way.

 

https://www.lexology.com/library/detail.aspx?g=81b46eee-ede4-44b5-9c69-bb024ec197bd

 

Isn't the 31CPR the one where they have 14 days in which to provide the evidence of documents, especially one with your alleged signature on?

If they don't provide them within 14 days then all actions must cease until they do.

12+2 and no. They can still chase , ask for payment etc.

They just cant enforce through the courts without a compliant agreement.

Hi

 

Here’s what has been submitted.

 

Cheers.

 

Claimants POC:

1. The Claimant claims payment of the overdue balance due from the

Defendant(s) under a contract between the Defendant(s) and New Day

dated on or about Nov 9 2016 and assigned to the claimant on Aug 9

2018.

1.1.

THE CLAIMANT THEREFORE CLAIMS £1190.72 + costs of £70.00 + £80.00

 

 

DEFENCE

 

1.The Defendant contends that the particulars of the 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.

a) There is no contract between New Day and the Defendant(s) and the

Claimant has failed to provide proof in any correspondence with the

Defendant(s) despite the request to do so. Allegedly New Day were

"sold a Marbles CC debt" but were unable to provide proof of

allocation and the matter was closed. It would transpire they have

subsequently sold the alleged debt to Cabot Financial who were also

asked to provide proof of allocation and to date have failed to provide

said proof and to return the Security Instrument upon which this alleged

debt was formed on payment of the alleged debt.

b) I deny any indebtedness to the Claimant but particularly deny they are

due statutory interest on the alleged amount and as such I request full

disclosure of the amount the Claimant alleges to have paid for this

alleged debt.

c) The agreement/contract, including the specific Terms at the point the

alleged Agreement was made and any subsequent changes need to be

furnished by the Claimant to validate any alleged indebtedness on the

part of the Defendant. Respectfully, you will appreciate that in an

ordinary case and by reason of the provisions of CPR PD 16 para 7.3,

where a claim is based upon a written agreement, a copy of the

contract or documents constituting the agreement should be attached

to or served with the particulars of claim and the originals should be

available at the hearing. Further, that any general conditions

incorporated in the contract should also be attached:

a. The deed of assignment

b. The notice of assignment

c. The default warning letter

d. The default notice

2.The Claimant has not complied with paragraph 3 of the PAPDC (pre action

protocol. Failed to serve a letter of claim pre claim pursuant to PAPDC

changes of the 1st October 2017. It is respectfully requested that the court

take this into consideration pursuant to 7.1 PAPDC.

3.Paragraph 1 is noted. I have in the past had financial dealings with Marbles

CC. However, I am unaware of what alleged debt with New Day the claimant refers to having failed to adequately particularise its claim and have had no

banking business whatsoever with New Day or the Claimant.

4.I do not recall receiving any Notice of Assignment from either assignor or

assignee pursuant to the Law of Property Act 1925.

5.It is therefore denied with regards to the Defendant owing any monies to the

Claimant, the Claimant has declined to provide any evidence of

assignment/balance/breach requested by CPR 31.14, 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

c) show and evidence the breach and that a Default Notice was issued

pursuant to Sec 87.1 CCA1974;

d) show how the Claimant has the legal right, either under statute or

equity to issue a claim;

e) is able to furnish the defendant with the original (not a copy) Security

Instrument on settlement of the alleged debt:

f) is able to provide a certified true copy of the Deed of Assignment

g) A true and certified copy of the consumer credit agreement/contract

subject to section 77 of the Consumer Credit Act 74 and also

comprising The Consumer Credit (Prescribed Period for Giving

Information) Regulations 1983 [sI 1983/1569]

6.On receipt of this claim I requested by way of a CPR 31.14 request and a

section 78 request for copies of any documents referred to within the

Claimants particulars to establish what the claim is for. To date they have

declined to comply to my section 78 request and remain in default and with

regards to my CPR 31.14 request. Therefore the claimant in their non-

compliance to my requests have frustrated my attempts to clarify their claim

and failure to comply with pre-action protocol should be considered when the

question of costs arise and whether or not this claim should proceed at all.

7.As per Civil Procedure Rule 16.5(4), it is expected that the Claimant prove the

allegation that the money is owed.

8.On the alternative, as 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.

9.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 thereof.

10.A "Notice of Irrevocable Estoppel by Acquiescence" was issued to the

claimant on 26 AUG 2018 for failure to provide proof of agency in this matter.

A copy of which will be provided at any future hearing.

11.The Defendant also contests Jurisdiction and respectfully request that if any

hearing is to proceed that the case is moved to the Bournemouth County

Court.

12.If the court feels that the Claimant has no claim due to their inability to provide

the evidence requested the Defendant respectfully asks the court to issue

Stay Of Proceedings.

This defence is hereby certified as true to the best of my knowledge.

Yes on reflection, it is perhaps a little OTT and misguided. Hoping the CAG can help me through this.

 

So I guess I’ll just have to wait for their response.

Hi Guys,

Please find attached the response from Reston Solicitors who are acting on behalf of Cabot.

I missed this in the post and only discovered it today. I really need to check my post as it comes in.

Thoughts?

Thanks.
