    • By the way you wrote that post, i can see that you are as confused by the situation as someone reading it. Important advice must be not to pay for any flights etc, until they understand the situation fully. Those that have British passports could be entitled to receive UK benefits. However, nothing is that straightforward. The passport does guarantee anything. The daughter could be entitled to Universal Credit ( which includes housing) as a British passport holder, but this can only be confirmed when she has gone through the Habitual Residency test (HRT). So you will need to read about HRT for British passport holders returning to the UK. There will be requirements to provide information about why they are returning to the UK and what work searches have they done to find work on their return to the UK. In regard to the mother who has a British passport, you will be correct in presuming that no council is going to be helpful in paying for the care home fees immediately on arrival in the UK. When did the mother last live in the UK ? When did the mother last work in the UK ? British embassy in South Africa may be able to provide information and assist with applications ? Just getting on a plane, landing in the UK and expecting help to resolve their situation, would be a silly thing to do. I can see the mother ending up in an NHS hospital for a period, while people wondered how they were going to deal with the situation. Probably not the first to do this, but if the mother also has a South African passport, they could put her on a plane back to SA and then the Daughter would be a difficult situation. Embassy in South Africa must be first place of advice.
    • There are online forums for people moving from South Africa to the UK. This is one of them.   https://moveup.co.za/2019/03/08/how-to-move-to-the-uk-a-step-by-step-guide/   If you want to speak to a social worker you could try the local council.   HB
    • This is not our issue, but an issue with a friend.  Our friend is living in South Africa and now suffers from dementia and is in a home.  The daughter has been paying for the home however the daughter was made redundant and has a child to support.  Daughter's husband keeps kicking her out of the house with the 3 year old boy and daughter had nowhere to go. The mother and daughter both have British passports.  Mother and father(now deceased) are British born, but daughter was born in South Africa.   The 3 year old was born in in South Africa.  Daughter is now broke and cannot keep the mother in a home any longer.  Daughter wants to return to the UK where she did live for several years previously so had NI number etc. however not sure what she can do with her mother.  The other issue is that the father is trying to get custody of the child so another issue. We, on behalf of the daughter who phoned us this morning, want to discuss with a social worker the options if any that may be open as on arrival here the mother will need to go straight into a home.  We can offer the daughter and child temporary accommodation with us.  Who should we contact? A very complicated scenario that normally we would not involved ourselves with as we are in our late sixties, retired and not that much money in the bank. 
    • They’re reporting it as the first case caught in the UK.  How do they know?  It may be the first case as such needing medical attention but surely that’s all they can say.  There could be cases where the symptoms were so mild they’ve gone unnoticed.

Arrow/Shoosmiths claim form - old MBNA card debt NI

Recommended Posts

dx100uk yes that is correct...N125

 

Sorry I didn't specify...It's with the court costs added that brings it to over £3000.

 

I did receive a claim pack..I was late on opening it.

With it being a Saturday I lodged my dispute online with the generic statue barred comments and phoned the court on the Monday..

thankfully they have took my dispute as priority as shoosmiths had not lodged a default decree yet.

 

Court says keep a better eye on your post and look out for your court date.

This is what I am looking to get prepared with.

So is it Small Claims or a Civil Bill  what have they expressed ?

 

Small claims

In general a small claim is one where the value to be claimed is not more than £3,000 and which does not relate to personal injuries, road traffic accidents, libel or slander, title to land, legacy or annuity or any property of a marriage.

If the total sum at issue between the same parties exceeds £3,000, the claimant must either:

  • proceed by abandoning any amount due over £3,000 (this will be expressly noted)
  • issue a civil bill in the County Court for a full hearing (up to £30,000)

Definitely small claims.

 

I have printed off CCA request and DSAR and will be posting a CCA and DSAR to arrow and a DSAR to MBNA first thing tommorrow.

 

I can't see the DSAR being returned by the court date tho as I believe it all moves quite fast over here.

Thanks for the continued help.

 

In regards to sending a DSAR to Arrow.  I believe that a DSAR should be signed.  Should i be sending Arrow anything with my signature on it?

I have issues about sending any DCA your signature

however in this case as its statute barred it does really matter

if you click SAR

and read all the posts there

I would include a CTAX copy

you only have to prove who/where you are today

I never actually sign anything. No legal reason why you must or should, its just a convention. No point giving them any ammo to fire back at you.

 You could put some XXXXs if you like, it wouldn't make a scrap of difference. 🤣

 

I just end a letter:

 

yours, blah.

(Note gap where you would sign a letter normally)

I would send any letters you send "Signed For" posted at the Post Office at least and keep the receipt and tracking number very safe.

Update.

 

So I received my court date. Any evidence from both sides needs to be sent to the courts and opposing sides 10 days before the court date.

 No defense to file so this is where things differ from the rest of the UK.

Would bank statements be enough evidence to prove my statue barred case?

It would but you'd have to do so much redacting as no way should you even show those to a claimant. Gives away far too much other data.

 

for want of clarification..it's for the claimant to prove a debt is not statute barred..not for a defendant to prove its not.

 

i have had one scottish claim like this.

i refused to let the fleecers in court see the statements and told the sheriff i was more than happy for him to view them privately.

 

he agreed and got may complete folder of every statement from 1982 till that date (2015) some 600 pages.

 

after a short recess!!..he ask me one further question..did i have any other ways of funding that i might of used..i said yes..he said what types..i said 2 other banks accounts of which both were joint and that i was not comfortable with disclosing the other party 's personal spending ..but had them and would disclose the statements if requested.

 

He asked was the paperwork as comprehensive as the one currently with him..i said yes..he said that will not be required you are under oath i take your word with a smile..

 

absolvitor issued..

Thats a very valid point.

This is the only instruction on the letter.

If I don't send proof of no payment to them then surely I could not use that as evidence in court.

Also any ideas how a bundle of evidence should be presented?

On 30th April 2012 the respondent defaulted on the terms of the credit card at which stage there was an outstanding balance of 3400.

 

On 21st Jun 2012 this debt was assigned to arrow global Guernsey Ltd.

 

Notice of the above assignment was issued to the respondent at the relevant time.

 

As a result of the above assignment any balance that remains due by the respondent arising out of the above mentioned credit card is now properly due to the applicant.

 

Following post default credits this balance has been reduced to 2900.

 

Please note that the customer last made a payment of 1.00 on 12th Dec 2014.

 

……..

 

30/03/12 balance £3400

20/10/19 balance £2900

                                ---------

                                  £500

so an exact round £500...strange that

 

even stranger that before 12/12/2014 ''post default credits' reduced the balance by exactly £499 ...note they do not use the word payments.

but they do when referring to the £1 

 

what date is the hearing?

Court date is 23rd Jan.

 

I'm looking forward to seeing what evidence they send me of the payments I have apparently made.

look at the timeline in the poc carefully.

the a/c was defaulted 30th april

the A/C was not sold till 21st june, some 2mts later

 

I would suggest the £499 was refund of interest or charges or WHY from the OC, hence the different wording

to the phantom £1 payment some further 6mts later they claim by you.

 

the MBNA SAR will most probably clarify the 1st part and should be arriving well in time for your bundle exchange

 

at that time 2012 -14 were you ever aware of what questioning a debt was all about ?? or were involved in any other debt whereby you used a CCA request etc or were in any kind of debt management etc etc.. we don't have old thread history to guess your background.

They claim £1 payment was paid in 2014. I have bank statements going back to December 2012. They show no payments to the debt. Or even for any payments of £1. This is the only account I have held.

 

I have never used a cca request before and this is my first dealing with this type of thing. Never went into a debt management plan. 

 

I went onto the electoral register at my new address and then a shoosmiths letter arrived about a month later regarding this.
