    • I do indeed! I've had a quick trawl to see if I can find the thread but I can't. I'll keep looking.   The thing that intrigued me most is that the SD process is remarkably simple and there are rarely, if ever, any complications. What Dodgeball (I think that's who it was) seemed unable to grasp was that the court was simply witnessing the declaration being made. It has no powers to enquire into its truthfulness and, provided everything was in order administratively, no powers to refuse to accept it. I know there was a complication about those being heard within 21 days and those heard after that time The court can refuse to hear an SD made after 21 days if they do not accept that  the maker has a reasonable excuse for the delay. But once they've agreed that he has then they must hear it.   I'll keep looking for it as it will cheer me up in these troubled times 🤣🤣
    • Thank you for your reply.   May I just please clarify what the error rate means in this case. 30% not rlight first time doesn't mean that there would be 30% errors within a single document.    It means that 30% of the documents worked wouldn't be spotless. There could be just one instance of straight quotes instead of curly quotes.  Most documents we worked on are quite lengthy.    I've been mostly marked down for very minor errors such as the example I gave.   Not everyone's work is being checkle. Majority of documents that are not checked contain similar errors. In most cases these aren't picked up by fee earners.   People make small mistakes because we are all humans but, more importantly, we are constanty having to deal with unrealistic deadlines.   We have also been losing staff recently. Many have gone to the rival firms.   And you are absolutely right. They aren't the employer for me. Unfortunately, it's very difficult to move on right now though a couple of coleagues have managed to do just that.
    • This reminds me of that other poster* who contributed to that lengthy thread about whether a magistrates court was bound to accept a statutory declaration or not - remember him?  As I recall he was threatening to find time to do something similar - he was going to write the final and definitive article explaining why only he understood the procedures around statutory declarations in motoring offences and why everybody else was wrong...   If I'm accused of being a FMOTL it's probably him!   *Was it dodgeball?

Any help appreciated

 

I bought a car on HP in 2003,

It was beyond my means and I only made 4 repayments -the car was repossed in 2005.

I had a company called Marlin ringing me at work constantly and I was bullied into paying £15pm

- I moved house and changed banks and the payments stopped in 2013.

 

In 2015 I had letters from Cabot requesting money - over the years I have argued with them over the debt.

They say it was assigned to them in 2016 yet I have statements from the original HP company in 2007 showing the balance

- so how can they have it assigned if it was still with the original lender.

 

It was due to become statute barred on 01/02/19

- however Mortimer issued an online claim on 27/12/18

- I defended and requested a SAR

- they have only sent me 2 out of 9 pages of the credit agreement

- which includes PPI and Gap insurance.

 

There are various inconsistencies in the paperwork, dates amounts etc.

Do I stand a chance in court of getting the claim in my favour or should I just negotiate with the Solicitor on a reduced amount?

Please read and complete. Do not communicate with them and do not go offering any settlement offers. They do NOT chase legit debts. They chase ones that are unenforceable, hoping people buckle and offer them something. Especially as marlin managed to get something from you years ago.

 

In your case, i suspect that it is extremely unlikely theyll ever get the paperwork needed to enforce this debt.


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..

Should I defend?

They have only given 2 of 8 pages of the original agreement

 

They also say that the date of assignment was 09/01/2006

- yet I have a statement from BCT showing the debt was still with them in 2007

- both MCE statements and BCT are different

- the MCE one starts with a balance in 2004

Hi You made some comments on a thread the other day - I wonder if you could help me.

 

1. I have a letter that says Cabot own the debt but the claim was made by MCE portfolio - I have checked with companies house and they are different companies.

 

2. So far they have only provided 1 page of a 3 page agreement.

 

3. I have 3 statements - MCE, Cabot and BCT - all with differing amounts owed, in fact Cabot say they bought it in 2006 0 yet the BCT statements show it will still with them in 2007 - and the statement says written off (18 months after Cabot say they bought it from BCT)

 

Is this enough to get it thrown out

I have a letter regarding a complaint from Cabot Financial (UK) Limited

yet the claimant on the court form was MCE Portfolio

They did not purchase the debt and are therefore not the legal owner of it?

 

cabot financial (UK) Limited say it was assigned to them - although they have never given me a notice of assignment

 

- - - Updated - - -

 

but the claimant was MCE portfolio -is that significant

Didn't British Credit Trust take some of the deposit off the insurances that was paid off the original agreement, that they weren't allowed to do?

I've been in dispute since 2010 regarding hidden broker fees that weren't disclosed to us.

Hi  I have complained to them so much over the years - its come down to the fact they cant supply a full legible copy of the CCA - the solicitor has acknowledged without it they cannot proceed with my case!!

I know BCT dont have it because I have emailed the legal guy on their website (Adrian)
