    • 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
    • how long did you sign up for ? if they claimed DD after that period …….

    • 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....

Hi, would be ever so grateful for help with Property Debt Collection.

 

History is I'm a low wage earner/lots of bad choice job mistakes and as of yesterday back to being unemployed regrettably.

(My home being advanced inheritance so I don't have the funds I think, they think I have).

 

last few months I admit I was in the wrong but found myself struggling financially with things getting on top of me. 

Gosh it all went wrong, I found the council hadn't added the 25% single living discount, credit card were taking higher recommended payments, energy company didn't exactly have me on the best tariff, felt like everyone has fleeced me. 

 

Around late April 2019 I received what looked like intimating mickey mouse court papers demanding a response in 30 days with SOA if I couldn't pay in one go.

At this point I'm advised they will add on £240 in charges and £15 charge for repayment plan.

 

I called at the time to apologise for falling behind and whilst a non-threatening person on the other end of the line reckoned they couldn't give me any guidance whatsoever on length of payment plans and rather strangely suggested I wait to return their forms until 30 days were up,

I am some what amazed 3 weeks later to receive their reply in response to me filling in the forms they sent.

 

I am staggered to find they seem to have added on another £300-odd alone today and have refused to accept what I was paying monthly last year to HML Romford (I have records to prove I paid £117.57 each month for around 9 months)

 

PDC demand 3 x £550.54 monthly to start within 30 days of today

- ironically it is worded in such a way PDC have made it sound like they are only charging £15 when actually a few hundred has been slipped in.

 

As I'm unemployed, I am right? they can't possibly have this.

Would Citizen's Advice be able to help?

 

Also how does a debt collector only get to accept cheques and card by phone only given the era we're in?

I apologise if I am in wrong place.

Many thanks. My last interaction with this bunch today, I've asked to specifically see my signature against their charges as I really think they add it on at will.

(HML took over from another company)

My complaint is whilst I could (just about) accept paying an additional £240+£15 for my part in wrong doing, to add on £300 after the mickey take papers were responded too is just not on.

 

I've now been given a fit note and my doctor has encouraged me to go to Citizen's advice, over it.  

 

I'll update what happens and thanks again for responding.

for get CAB.

go read that thread check your lease etc

some do not allow the addition of any penalty fees for being late or sending letters or passing to a collection company

read the small print it could save you £1000's

 

the devil is in the detail.

have you checked your credit file that you did/didn't get a CCJ against you if that's what you are saying?

Thank you ever so much DX. 

"My account is now on hold" whilst they get a copy of my lease apparently, I'm also going to dig out my copy after what you've said.

 

To the best of my knowledge I don't have a CCJ - I even got placed as a Temp in a insurance company when this started, which would have required financial checks to be passed.

 

They have tried to justify why I should pay up in three months but my only option is to use a credit card - and I'm sooo reluctant to do that whilst now unemployed.

 

Part of their latest correspondence had this line which I'm confused by (my home has no mortgage - which I presume what they are trying to get at?)

Alternatively, you can complete and return a signed admission form so we can approach your lender for payment. Please advise if you wish us to send you an admission form.

 

DX - please can I ask if I want to make a token payment direct to HML can I pay into their bank.

I can't write cheques anyway and don't imagine PDC will take my card details for anything less then the £550 a month.

 

(my debit card hasn't that value and not likely to for some time whilst I get myself together and back in employment - but I'm concerned they could try for it and take me into an unauthorised overdraft situation) 

 

Thanks for your help massively.

cant see any harm in using your banks interweb portal to make direct payments no.

just find out their sort/AC number and use your HML ref number as the description line

or call and ask them for the details
