Tomlin order - can monthly defaults still be recorded?

Recommended Posts

Hi

I've been helping a friend with a £16k credit card debt (drawn up by her ex husband)

but I'm quite late to the game and I think there's been a fair amount of letters ignored.

 

We sent a letter to the dca/solicitor - idr finance/Kearns - about a month ago

offering them a repayment and asking for details of how to make payment or set up a standing order.

 

They replied saying they wouldn't agree to a repayment plan without the security of a CCJ.

We have since received (genuine) papers from Northampton bulk centre with an additional £1k in court and solicitor fees.

 

Is it worth partially challenging the amount (the £1k) on the basis that we made an offer/started to mediate before they started a claim?

 

Thanks, Kris

 

PS. We saw a solicitor about the thieving husband but they said even if we sued him,

if he has no money its fruitless and best to draw up a finance settlement as part of a divorce settlement.

 

 

There is equity in their property and he's sent emails accepting responsibility for the debt so my friend will get it back in the next few years.

 

 

One last question -

anyway to stave off this CCJ

ie speaking to credit card fraud department and refuting the purchases on the card (about two years old now).

is it a joint liability issue, and they are suing one but not the other (ex)? or is the cred card in her name

For a debt that size to be sold on, theres DEFINITLEY something wrong with it, which is why the DCA is rubbing their greedy little hands and got it in court fast.

Brief chronology...

Ex spent on credit card.

Friend found out and confronted ex.

Ex apologised and promised to pay back and not do it again.

Ex did it again.

Friend found out.

Both times happened while they were together.

Ultimately both times it was going on my friend didn't know until the statements came through the door.

 

this hasn't been reported as fraud to anyone - should we be reporting this to barclaycard now - will that put a halt on proceedings?

Rather pointless...is it actually fraud ? Why did she not report it at the time and have him removed from the card ?

 

I think you are going to struggle to sell the " he used it without her consent "...the arrangement should have been severed the day the relationship hit problems.

After all we could all use that reason.

He was never on the card, it's solely in her name. We have emails from him admitting he ran up the debt. Happy to be led by the greater knowledge here on the best way to proceed

it was used online and via paypal so no pin needed.

ultimately she forgave her husband and believed him when he said he wouldn't do it again

and at the time of the default believed he was paying the debt.

 

 

there has been a certain level of neglect here in that a closer eye on statements and letters

would have prevented this but we are where we are and now how best to deal with it from here.

 

 

my friend makes no excuses and she has regrets but can only learn from those mistakes she can't change them.

hi, following on from my comment a few posts above, is there any value-add in reporting the fraud at this stage?

I take it that you have sent the s78 request to the claimant, and the cpr31.14 to the claimants solicitors?

The problem is proving its fraud and getting that accepted as a credible defence?

yes but only sent them yesterday

 

The problem is proving its fraud and getting that accepted as a credible defence?

 

Would it be more of a credible defence if we reported it to barclays as such? Once we dispute the charges on the card would the dca have to temporarily cease action on the debt?

 

Would it be of any help if I posted up some of the email conversations between my friend and her ex where he supports the card usage was him? edit: if better to garner opinion from the forum on the credibility of arguing fraud as a defence?

 

If there's a considerable risk that we would lose and be lumped with costs I think my friend would rather accept the CCJ on the premise that she will get her money back when their house is sold.

 

personally i'd like to see him investigated for fraud, but that's neither here nor there... :)

Well..as the debt has now been assigned to Plink...I doubt you would have much joy in dealing with BC...they have assigned a disputed debt (assuming they were aware ?)

 

I personally don't see any risk in continuing to defend....at the least you are entitled to challenge and query that the claimant is legally entitled to enforce the debt and has the paperwork dotted and crossed and in order.

 

Costs as you state are a risk as this will be Fast Track...so that must be taken into consideration also.

Nobody is aware of the fraud. Initially BC were not told because they were very much a couple and friend didn't want to land her husband in trouble. Then when we saw solicitor they said no point as if he has no money it won't achieve anything.

 

This paperwork - am I likely to be fighting for it until I receive it in a defence pack and if it was all in order could we change our mind at the 11th hour to admit said claim or would we still get hammered for costs once a date is set?

 

There's also the decision to make on whether we challenge the whole claim on fraud or challenge the additional solicitor and court fees given this ccj came after we attempted to negotiate.

 

I'm mindful of the fact this isn't my fight and don't want to end up with my friend getting stiffed for costs because I thought we had a shot at defending it. I'll brief her and she can make her own decision as the thread grows. Thanks

Hi, we have received responses to CPR and CCA request.

 

CCA response advises IDR need to request CCA from Barclaycard - will confirm where we are on the 12 day timeframe shortly.

 

CPR response attached.

It mentions they would agree a repayment plan but only with the security of a court order, which grinds a little. If we can get them to agree to a repayment plan without a CCJ we'll take it - as I said earlier we can get the money back one way or another - the big win for us is to get past this without a CCJ.

 

added cca response. it mentions may be 30 days to respond

and did you admit the debt to them after consulting legal advise?

I sincerely hope you didn't write that in either the CCA nor the CPR??

potentially...

 

this is what I sent them prior to receiving any court papers. (cca and cpr request were standard templates from cag)

 

"Following my meeting with the solicitor I understand I currently remain liable for the outstanding debt.

To fill you in briefly the debt was run up by my ex-husband without my knowledge and I am exploring other options I have to resolve this issue including speaking to CIFAS regarding the fraudulent activity on my card.

 

 

My solicitor also advised once I am able to re-mortgage our jointly owned property

they can draw up a consent order to use a share of the equity to settle the monies owed to me from my ex-husband

which I will use to settle this debt.

 

 

Until such time as another resolution is in place I accept my responsibility to the debt and am willing to agree a payment plan.

 

I am not in a financial position to pay the full amount owed and I can offer a sum of £150/month.

I am happy to review this at a future date.

 

 

Please advise the methods of repayment open to me.

I would prefer to set up a standing order if you could confirm a sort code,

account number and the reference number to use."

 

to which they replied they still wanted to proceed with the court order
