    • yes only court...   can I confirm this was settled via Barclaycard and chargeback as it was a debit card, rather than section 75 via a creditcard?  
    • Hi   Sorry for the delay in getting back to you don't worry we have not forgot you.   So they have destroyed ALL DATA personal to you as you did not take the Property. (really they have put there foot in it)   If they hold no personal data then they have NO evidence of what was agreed to with your Holding Deposit and the refusal to return it.   Now if it was me I would let them drop themselves in it even further by responding to there SAR response.   Thank you for your SAR Response dated XX/XX/2019   Due to this response I require clarification of the following:   1. Have you followed the Data Protection Act 2018 & General Data Protection Regulations on Destroying My Personal Data?   2. If you have Destroyed All My Personal Data then what documentation do you hold that I have signed/agreed to the Holding Deposit being Non-Refundable and to provide copies of this documentation.   3. I require a copy of your Policy on Holding Deposits   Please bear in mind the above is what I would do.   I do think it is looking like you may have to go down the court route (make sure and have a good read of that link I previously gave you to the Tenants Fee Act).
    • HI   Firstly the parking in front of your drive, do you have a pavement with a Drop Kerb in front of your property to access your driveway, if so are they infringing on the Drop Kerb? (note your can ask the council to to paint a white line with lines at the end on the road in front of the drop kerb please note there may be a cost from the council to do so)   As for the CCTV look at this ICO link: https://ico.org.uk/your-data-matters/domestic-cctv-systems-guidance-for-people-using-cctv/   Due to the new DPA/GDPR if you have CCTV on your Property and it views outside of that Properties Bounderies they then need to register as a Data Controller with the ICO.   So I would make a Formal Complaint in writing to the Councils Data Controller, ICO (specifically asking if this individual is Registered with them as a Data Controller) & Police, you need to keep a good paper trail of this individuals actions.   I hope this individual knows the Law on Harassment as from your thread that is the impression I get is no matter what you do they will find something else to complaint about.  
    • Most guarantees are not transferable anyway to the new owner so why a solicitor should request it is pointless.The quotes should suffice to prove the work was carried out.   Andy
    • Apologies for the prolonged radio silence!   To cut a very long story short, I went back to Barclaycard (because I bought the car with my VISA card) and they offered to repair the car at a cost of £2500.   We accepted the offer because we were advised that even if we went to court and won the case, there was no guarantee that the dealer would give us our money back anyway or would end up paying us £10 a week for the next umpteen years.   The decision to have the car repaired was also made in the light of the fact that apart from the gearbox issue the rest of the car was in good nick. It is running fine after nearly 4 months now, so even if our friend gets a few more years out of it it will have been worth it.   Now that it is all settled I can reveal the name of the dealer - it was Thatcham Motor Company, in Thatcham, Berks. Very pleasant to deal with at first whilst everything was ok but boy oh boy, beware if anything goes wrong!   Similarly Momentum Warranties who provided the 6 months "warranty". On paper this warranty apparently covers practically every conceivable fault that the car might develop until you try to make a claim!   It seems that only if a component physically breaks that any cover is provided, otherwise they will hide behind the "fair wear and tear" get-out clause. Can an ECU unit be subject to wear and tear?   I would not touch either of these outfits again with the proverbial barge pole. Buyer beware!   One further thing I forgot to mention. We ran up considerable expenses trying to sort all the issues - the engineer's reports, travel costs etc.   Is it too late to try to claim these back from the dealer now? I just ran out of energy by the time Barclaycard agreed to pay for the repair but now the dust has settled I am up for it again!   Would this have to be done via the Small Claims Court?

Lowell PAP LOC now claimform - Vanquis+Talk Talk

Recommended Posts

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

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.

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

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.

Hello 

 

I got back from holiday today to find a letter from Lowell solicitors, I have tried to upload it but it keeps failing

 

Share this post

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.
