    • So there's no tax payable anyway.... nothing to see here!  
    • are you actually going to benefit out of this at all?   I was slightly getting confused here earlier, and forgot you said you are the claimant because you are suing the defendant for the cost of a hire car that you personally haven't had to pay for ?    
    • I received PCN's from TFL and Southwark. 08/06/19 I spoke with Southwark regarding PCN's and thought it was sorted.   Didn't hear anything back until 17/01/20 when my car was taken by Marston EA. TFL & Marston say they sent letters but have no proof.   I emailed TFL (19th June) through their online portal and again, via email on (14th Nov 2019) < the email on 14th has been viewed 17 times but no reply. (so I have proof of contact, they don't) I asked them if they send via recoded delivery/signed for but they do not.   When my car was taken, I received a call from a friend saying it's on the back of a truck, outside his house (which is round the block from mine). I ran round there and the EA was aggressive, shouted at me and refused to show ID/why he had taken my car.   I complained to Marston who denied it but sent me some of the footage. I complained again through resolver.co.uk and Marston lied again. Then I sent ALL my info and evidence etc.   took a few weeks and called me saying sorry and taking full responsibly for their EA's aggressive behaviour etc. TFL are still refusing to comment.   Marston offered me £250 as a goodwill payment but obviously the pain and trauma causes - that doesn't cover it. The police were called when they took my car cause I was so distressed and having a panic attack etc.   I've requested the phone call recording where they accepted guilt and that they had handled everything badly, including lying about the video on Resovler. I feel like Marston know they've done wrong, but TFL still aren't in the know. (to my knowledge)   Also, I requested info from TFL via whatdotheyknow.com and TFL did a data protection breach by uploading my full details including address etc. to a public forum (and I didn't even ask anything specific about my case) so I feel like they did this out of spite/anger.   the www.whatdotheyknow.com team reprimanded them for this and advised me to complain. I also paid £800+ to retrieve my vehicle and I have completed the OOT which was denied. I tried to take it to court but when I tried to do the 'low income' thing but they wanted bank statements which I couldn't get... then corona happened.   I've downloaded/uploaded the ZIP file from Resolver convos.   Regarding the footage: my initial message to them, I made myself seem unaware and 'stupid'   they wrote a generic reply telling me that 'the footage is fine and the EA did nothing wrong' they can't uphold my complaint,   then once they sent that; I sent them the CIVEA rulebook and timestamps in the video to show that they were in the wrong and had further lied in their official response (which must be illegal)   when they received the in-depth response, I think they got scared, went away for a couple weeks   tried to get the nice sounding woman to call me up, say sorry and be really nice then offer me a measly £250.   She also tried to rush me into agreeing.   
    • No it was about under by a couple grand.    Cheers

Lowell CCJ Issued for 27 year old LLoyd OD debt ***Settled***

Do I come clean with them and say that I intend to set aside? Wont that make them more determined to dig their heels in?

 

If it was SB when they issued the claim and you can prove it, it doesn't matter what they do they are caught out, when did you last pay anything?


We could do with some help from you.

i have letters from Lowells from across the years  and then in the mail, from when I returned I have a claimform

 

I havent had any contact with Lowells or Lloyds regarding this debt I would estimate for at least 10 years and certainly not in the last 6 years .

 

I am going through my bank accounts and any other documentation I can find now to see if I had any communication with them before then 

- is it possible that there could have been another creditor before Lowells that Lloyds had passed the debt on to ?

 

The original debt was an unpaid credit card as far as I can remember

 

many thanks

 

Also I would like to say that I really appreciate the help, its really kind

doesn't matter you might have gotten or sent letters, those cannot reset the SB clock.

 

if you didn't pay/use this card for 6yrs before the claimform date

then go ring Lowell solicitors and tell them you want them to set aside the CCJ by mutual consent FOC to you (saves you the N244 £255 fee)

once you have explained the debt was already SB's we have known them to do so.

you'll need the CCJ number

Thank you so much for your patience

OK I have gone through some old bank accounts and paperwork

 

I think this is the case - although I am still trying to get hold of more information including an old account

 

About 10 years ago I lived in a different city (London). 

I went to see a debt advisor .

I made an agreement to pay £1 a month to the debt, which was not Lowells at the time.

This was a direct debit from an account, which I havent had any dealings with since this time, registered at my London address. There wasnt much in there but over the years the money has been paying into the Debt

 

I am trying to get hold of access to the account 

- I dont have any of the details for it although I know which bank it is.

 

I am having a sinking feeling as I think that there has been £1 paying this off up to less than the 6-year-ago date

 

Best regards

Sorry, I cant find the paperwork for the agency for whom the debt was made payable too.

 

It looks like the orginal account was a current account. (I was suprised at this, as I never remember having this level of overdraft as a student)

 

I am going through all the paperwork I can get my hands on now, and I am getting a clearer picture

 

This is from Lowells:

"On 02/02/1999 you entered into an agreement for a Lloyds (current account). You failed to make payment in accordance with the terms of the agreement and it was later terminated and subsequently assgined to our client by Lloyds Banmlk PLC on 24/11/2016. Notice of the assignment has been previously given to you"

I spoke to Lloyds

they sent the account to a recovery team in 2008 (and thus I am told the account was defaulted) and closed the account in 2009

 

They received a payment of £1 in Nov 2015 from Credit Security into the debt account.

I was told that credit security had been employed by Lloyds to collect the money.

And did you make the 1 pound payment towards the alleged debt or was it part of a CCA request?

not going by the story

so it looks like your mates advice shot you in the foot sadly then and has comeback to haunt you again.

you were paying £1PCM and the information from Lloyds tallies with that.

 

its not statute barred 

so I can't see a reason for a set aside, 

for whatever reason you ignored the claimform, it went to the correct address

the debt itself was being servicedby £1PCM payments till nov 2015, within 6yrs.

 

the only way to stop this appearing on your file is to pay the judgement in full by 3rd march.

No it wasnt a CCA request

I went into a local branch of halifax to examine an old account.

I think I have found out what happened.

 

around the time of the default in 2008 / 2009

- I made an agreement with Credit Security (who were employed by Lloyds) to pay off a pound a month.

The account at Halifax was preloaded with around £40 .

And it has been paying this in up til Nov 2015

 

Yes, to your last message

 

So I was out of the country from 30 Dec 2019 to 16 Feb 2020

 

And during this time , a notice of pending CCJ and the Claim form were sent to me and then action took place on 4th feb

So the £40 ran out in 2015 and since then you haven't been paying the agreed instalments. This put you in breach of the instalment agreement and this then opens the door to a county court claim. Had you replenished the account so that the instalments continued to be paid as agreed, then you would have had an excellent defence

thank you

 

Is there any case to be made regarding being absent while claims and court occured and thus not being able to respond or to represent?

 

Additionally there is a confusion about the amount owed - Lloyds apparently had made an error some time around 2009 and ten years later refunded some mony into my account (well credited the Lowell account) in Jan 2019  - I am trying to track from Lloyds, what was going on here, bu they will take 5 days to get back to me

You will be lucky if Lloyds bother to get back to you at all. Send them an SAR although that will take 30 days – assuming that they comply. Do it now.

In terms of applying for a set-aside, you will need to show that you didn't have knowledge of the claim – and that if you are permitted to defend that you would have a reasonable chance of success.

If you can show that the money that Lloyds is claiming from you is wrong then together with the fact that you were away, you can meet both requirements and you would probably succeed. However, it won't happen real quick.

OK looks like chances are diminishing

 

Lloyds were relatively helpful, although all the information appears to be spread out across different systems. It would be really hard to tell what the exact sums owed are I guess, as it appear that they put charges in error in 2009, then refunded them in 2019 - and therefore difficult for me to assess what I legitimately owed as it depends on the nature and validity of the orgiginal charges - which in the end is up to Lloyds

 

Is there any value in ringing Lowell ?
