Hi All

 

I received a letter today from Lowell Solicitors, notice of pending legal Action they have combined two debts together into one and are threatening to take court action.

 

The debts are for Vanquis Credit card and talk talk

 

I know their are late payment fees and credit protection on the vanquish and the talk talk is mostly early termination and a mobile 30 day sim that they refused to disconnect  saying that I did not cancel it correctly.

 

I cancelled my talk talk account due to 3 data breaches during the contract and I will admit that due to no payment the vanquis account was closed.

 

I need help with the form Lowell have sent and what I can dispute and how.

Hello

 

Have you got any of your paperwork from the Vanquis account?

 

First thing you can do is check if it is Statutory Barred.

 

You should have received a Default notice and provided you did not pay anything after this date or acknowledge the debtg in any other way then the account cannot be enforced in the courts after six years of the date of the default notice.

 

(I mention this because Vanquis are taking a poke at me and my defence will be Stat Barr).

Hello Andyorch

 

Sorry for not replying sooner have had some family issues, 

 

They sent me the pre action protocol just not sure what to do with it. I am going to defend both on the grounds that the Talk Talk bill has early termination fee and they carried on charging for a mobile phone sim because according to them I did not cancel it correctly despite the fact that it was a 30 day rolling contract.

 

The Vanquis bill is in dispute because it has late payment fees over limit fees default fees and their New Version of PPI 

 

Hi Comebackjimmy

 

The Vanquis bill is not statue barred it was last paid in 2016 due to wife and son both losing jobs at the same time and not getting back into work for 6 months so something had to give

Instructions on how to complete the Pre Action Protocol are contained in the link I provided in post # 2

  • dx100uk changed the title to Lowell Solicitors PAP letter of Claim for 2 debts - Vanquis+Talk Talk - how do i reply?

they cant represent 2 clients in one action so that makes you wonder if they have any authority to act at all.

It sounds like they are just using their name as solicitors to apply pressure for you to pay them whilst acting as a dca rather than a solicitor (perfectly legal)

Post up the letter with your personal details redacted and people will advise on what to do if anything. the most likely response will be to deny that any monies are owed to their clients and that a counterclaim would be a possibility.

There isn't two clients EB both debts assigned to Lowell...both could be amalgamated should they litigate...or separate claims for each debt

We could do with some help from you.

the OP was asked about this and didnt say they were legally assigned, just the solicitors had sent  a PAP letter.

So that does beg the question  did the original creditors send you a letter of assignment to show the debt had been sold to Lowells? may well be on Lowell headed paper

ok so PAP reply time as the link

please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

 

if everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's tomorrow

the biggest financial industry in the UK, DCA;s -  would collapse overnight.

 

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs - that's why they will never tell you they are not bailiffs and have absolutely zero legal powers on any debt.

got a letter today from Lowell

 

apparently I sent the pap to the wrong address

they changed the refence number to on for their solicitor's

so I put an incorrect reference on

 

then told me they do not have to send it to the correct office or use the reference for that I used

 

and have now issued court proceedings adding a further 400 to the bill,

 

they also tell me that they now do not have to send me any paper work or provide any further information.

Hello Andyorch

 

No court claim just their solicitor telling me it had been issued and that they did not have to comply with pap because sent to wrong office and old reference number used, apparently when it is sent to the solicitor's the Lowell reference number changes.

 

I could the reference number on the previous letter because I could not find the pap letter they sent me.

and he said no longer have to accept it as it is now passed 30 days.

 

I pointed out to him that it was served to Lowell in Northampton so it still counts as it is all one company with a linked system as Northampton themselves proved when they told me it was a refrence for the leeds branch and could see it on their system.

well its immaterial its out of time whatever number or address you used.

 

don't quite understand whats really going on here

you haven't received an N1 claimform pack from northants bulk court

so ignore lowells stupid letters unless you do.

 

if you wish to repeat it using the correct address and number do so.

Hi The Letter reads as follows

 

We confirm receipt of your recent correspondence dated 17/08/19

 

with regards to the acknowledgment of service, we can confirm receipt of this and the appropriate action has been taken.

 

as you are aware the reference number noted on the right is in relation to accounts held with talk talk and vanquish, the balances of which have been consolidated.

 

Claim 1: TAlk Talk

 

in relation to the above account, as this is former telecommunications matter, it is not regulated by the consumer credit act 1974, this means that the original creditor is not required to retain a copy of the Agreement and therefore we are unable to request a copy of this document. A default notice is a formal letter which is sent to a customer when they fail to maintain payments on their credit agreement. Mobile phone accounts have a service agreement and therefore a default notice will not have been issued as it only applies to the credit agreements, the terms and conditions can be found on the original creditors web site.

 

we have requested copies of the statements and notice of assignments for your attention.

 

Claim 2 Vanquis

 

We have requested copies of the agreement, statement, default notice and notice of assignment. once a response has been received, this shall be forwarded to you. You will appreciate that we are unable to control the time within which we receive a response from our client.

 

As you are aware a county court claim has been issued with deemed service date of the 21/8/19. you should read it fully and respond to the claim aqainst you deem appropriate, you may wish to seek independent legal advice with regards to this matter.

 

Failure to respond to the county court claim within the time frame provided by the court may result in us applying to enter a county court judgment (CCJ) in default to be entered against you. this would mean further costs and could make it difficult for you to obtain credit, morgages, or even some employment whilst it remains unsatisfied on your credit file for six years

 

we trust this clarifies your position.
