What you need to do now.

 

Answer the questions above

 

If you have not already done so – send a CCA request to the claimant for a copy of your agreement

- I have done so on 06/08/19 ans received the response on 23/10/19 (I'm sure this was very late for them to send it to me)

 

Send a CPR31.14 request to the solicitor named on the claim form 

- I have done this and received two response.

One to say they won't be sending anything and one with the letters I've attached.

thread tidied..

 

so no return of a signed agreement be that on online or otherwise yet then?

 

and ofcourse as with all Lowell cat debts..thats a screenshot of some database claiming to show that a DN was sent, not a compliant copy of the actual DN, which has numerous times been discredited in court as worthless and failing to comply with section 87

No return of anything signed. There is a Credit agreement with my name typed on the top, but I didn't know if it was important. 

 

Apart from that, that''s all I've received from them. Well that and lots of demands.

that's the usual stuff they trot out for a SD agreement

whereby as you can see, they could have gotten that from anywhere inc this forum and simply inserted your details via cut n paste into it.

though there is an online sign up tick box and a date but no ref as to say IP address used etc proving it was you that did it

and no agreement number anywhere that directly links it to the agreement number quoted in their POC.

 

major fatal flaw is no default notice to date, but a database screenshot as already advised.

and a snotty reply to your CPR  31:14 saying we might comply if not you'll have to wait until you get our witness statement.

 

your defence is due by 4pm 9th.

 

there are numerous like Lowell cat claimform threads here

use our search top right.

 

one of particular note , which then references others within it is:

Finally go  a little time to myself, so knocked the defence from your given examples. How does it look?

 

1.The claim is for the sum of £882.53 due by the Defendant under the CCA 1974 for a Shop Direct account with the account ref of ******************** 

 

2.The Defendant failed to maintain contractual payments required by the agreement and a Default notice was served under s.87(1) of the CCA 1974 which has not been complied with.

 

3.The debt was legally assigned to the claimant on 08/01/18, notice of which has been given to the defendant.

 

4.The claim includes statutory interest under S.69 of the County Courts Act 1984 at a rate of 8% per annum from the date of assignment to the date of issue of these proceedings in the sum of £70.60

- The claimant claims the sum of £953.13

 

#####Defence######

 

The Defendant contends that the particulars of claim are vague and generic in nature. The Defendant accordingly sets out its case below and relies on CPR r 16.5 (3) in relation to any particular allegation to which a specific response has not been made.

 

1. Paragraph 1 is denied. Whilst it is admitted I have held various catalogue agreements in the past, I have no recollection of ever entering into an agreement with Shop Direct and do not recognise the specific account number or recollect any outstanding debt and have therefore requested clarification by way of a CPR 31.14 and section 78 request pursuant to The Consumer Credit Act 1974.

 

2. Paragraph 2 is denied I have not been served with a Default Notice pursuant to sec87(1) the Consumer Credit Act 1974. They have sent an alleged copy dated 28th Jan 2018 from my cpr31.14 request. this is the first time I have seen this letter.

 

3. Paragraph 3 is denied. I am unaware of a legal assignment or Notice of Assignment pursuant to the Law and Property Act 1925 Section 136(1)

 

4. On receipt of this claim form I, the Defendant, sent a request by way of a section 78 pursuant to the Consumer Credit Act 1974, for a copy of the agreement, the Claimant has yet to comply and remains in default of the said request.

 

5. A further request made via CPR 31.14 to the claimant’s solicitor, requesting disclosure of documents on which the Claimant is basing their claim. The claimant has not complied.

 

6. It is therefore not accepted with regards to the Defendant owing any monies to the Claimant and the Claimant is put to strict

proof to:

 

a) show how the Defendant has entered into an agreement and;

b) show how the Defendant has reached the amount claimed for and;

c) show the nature of the breach and evidence by way of a Default

Notice pursuant to sec 87(1) of the Consumer Credit Act 1974

d) show how the Claimant has the legal right, either under statute or equity to issue a claim

 

7. As per Civil Procedure 16.5 it is expected that the claimants prove the allegation that the money is owed

 

8. By reasons of the facts and matters set out above, it is denied that the Claimant is entitled to the relief claimed or any relief.

 

If you think it's okay, I'll get it put in today. 

 

Thank you for all your help on this.

its not a copy of a valid default notice issued by the original creditor complying with the prescribed format stipulated in section 87 of the consumer credit act,

it is a screen capture of some database page of unknown origin or originator.

Hey all, 

 

Just received a Directions questionnaire (small claims track) that has been filled out by Lowell. 

 

Is this something I should scan and add to the thread or is this just ordinary stuff??

 

Cheers
