I have today checked my credit file and I have a CCJ from Lowell Finance at an address I haven't lived at for more than 11 years. 

Lowell have chased me for this debt and another one at my current address. 

Surely this is illegal but I have read of course it isn't! 

 

I have had court cases with Lowell and won on two occasions so this is a cheeky tactic. 

 

I want to get this judgement set aside as I had no idea about it

to defend it (still fuming),

no chance to defend case etc,

no paperwork about the debt to prove it is mine etc. 

 

What is the best way to go about? 

I am just contact the court now via phone to get more details. 

It is annoying I have to pay a fee but it is what it is! 

 

Should I contact Lowell as well via letter? 

 

Just to add default on file is august 2018 so it won't be defaulted.  I believe it is for a very account

 

Any advice would be great.

 

Thanks

So thru previous court claims you can prove Lowell knew your correct address prior to issuing this claim?


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.

Yes I can prove from a previous claim and chase letters that lowell knew my correct address.  Also from another debt they are chasing

 

All my credit file which they have search has my correct address on the electrol role, another debt they have defaulted me for and that link address I moved out of the one they got the ccj for 11 years ago!

Lowell didn't default you, the OC did upon sale or previous to them.

 

right i'll ask again..

 

have you successfully defended a claim from your current address prior to the issuance of this backdoor ccj and the issuance of its claimform?

ring lowells solicitors

catch them on the hop

 

tell them you want them to set aside the CCJ you've just found FOC to you as they already knew your correct address from the previous case.

they purposefully attained it using an old address.

Thanks DX, called them as mentioned and told them the above! 

Seems like an advisor kept shirking my question about using an old address. 

 

Would you say best course of action is to write a letter to them recorded? 

I have emailed as well but not reply as of yet. 

Thanks in advance for any advice

no question needs to be asked by you...

simply demand Lowell solicitors [who you should be speaking too NOT Lowell general number...]

set it aside free of charge to you as the KNEW your old address from the previous claim correspondence

As I have had 2 previous court cases with you [ case numbers xxx dates xxx] and won on both occasions , you already clearly knew my correct address.

you purposefully filled claim xxx date xxx to an old address you say you gained from my credit file I have not lived at for 11yrs!!

 

why if I have has 2 court cases against you and won, and my credit file shows my current address , did you purposefully use on from 11 yrs ago??

 

I demand you setaside CCJ number xxxx at no cost to myself within 14 days.

legend DX. 

Would they actually set it aside though? 

 

Have you heard of the company doing that before as I have been looking through a lot of different forums across the web and not come across it. 

 

Only read of people like me doing it and in most cases winning!

Just had a reply from lowell

 

Thank you for your recent email.

 

When the account was allocated to Lowell Solicitors we obtained the address form our client.

 

As we received no correspondence until your telephone call on 12 September 2019 we had to rely on the information we were advised by our client in good faith.

 

We note your comments regarding setting aside the Judgment, this would be dealt with through the Courts, should you wish to seek any further advice on this matter. Please keep us updated regarding any correspondence from the Court.

 

As you mentioned, a County Court Judgment (CCJ) was entered against you for £100.00 to be paid monthly. You are currently in arrears of £300.00

 

As this account is now subject to a CCJ you may wish to seek independent legal advice.

 

You are required to make payments in accordance with the CCJ.

 

Please make contact in regards to your intentions towards your account.

 

Our Client would prefer to avoid further action at this stage because such action could increase the outstanding balance through the addition of enforcement related fees. However, if the account is not brought up to date and you fail to contact us to resolve the outstanding balance, our Client will consider enforcement action which, dependent on the outstanding balance, could include one of the following:

 

·         Warrant of Control: A County Court Bailiff will visit you at home to discuss payment of the outstanding balance.

 

·         Attachment of Earnings: Your employer being ordered to deduct payment from your wages.

 

·         Charging Order: If you own your home, securing a Charge against it so that payment of the debt will be deducted directly from the proceeds.

i'm really surprised that following two previous court claims

they blatantly say they can ignore those and legally file to an old address

whereby they know your correct address from previous COURT DOCUMENTS.

blimey.

I actually received an email today from resolve call acting on behalf of lowell and they have my current address on system.

shocked and annoyed I have to pay to get it set aside but something I am willing to do as this is very naughty tactic.

they have offered 60% off resolve call on another debt which I'm tempted to take so it says partially settled on my credit file.

do you think I should try and get more off?

 

reason I want it settled is to improve my credit file. partially settled better than showing default all the time.
