Court claim lowell Capital One credit card

Recommended Posts

HI all .

I have recieved a claim form from Lowell Portfolio for just under £3000. 

Unfortunately i have been too distressed to deal with it and hid it away.

 

Its dated 23 Jan from Northampton court. Form N1SDT.

Its for a capital one card debt from 2015.

Have i messed up?

Is it too late to do anything.?

 

I called a debt line last night but they said they cant help me as my husband is self employed.

Although he hasnt worked for a while and money is tight.

 

We have had a series of knockbacks in recent years and its all getting too much.

Both our parents died recently, my husband had skin cancer and now i have been diagnosed with a chronic degenerative lung condition thats making my day to day life even more harder. I have had to change jobs and do less hours as im not uop to it now. 

 

We just cannot cope at the moment.

If my landlord finds out about these debts will they renew our contract? 

 

I do owe money to other cards and we are behind with other bills and i just dont know what to do anymore. 

 

Do i just let it run its course now its too late.?

Im frightened the others will come chasing soon.

Please help me.

Hi and welcome to CAG

 

I have moved your topic to the appropriate forum...Financial Legal Issues.

 

You should of acknowledge service by the 10th Feb and stated your intended plea.Follow the instruction in the claim pack and go on line to acknowledge service now.

See if MCOL will still allow it and if so do it and come back here for further advice......defend all.

Your defence is due on Monday so you wont get a response to a CCA or CPR in time to use as part of your defence.

 

Have a look in the following forum at example defences.

Well normally you would have 33 days to respond but because you have failed to deal with it......which the DCAs that issue court claims love.....your time is restricted in preparation. I would advise you send the CCA and CPR 31.14 off today so at least they can be referred to within your defence even without a response they will still have to comply as the claim progress.You will use the normal holding defence that puts them to strict proof/ disclosure of the relevant documents required to enable them to enforce the agreement by way of the court claim.

OK thanks.

Is there any merit or anything to gain in calling these people?

I've been reading some online posts and articles.

Some posts say call them, but the majority say do not talk to them by phone ever.

I will get the CCA CPR off today regardless..

 

Thanks again

No nothing to be gained in conversing with them...they only understand £$ and pence...not interested in anything else.

#########Defence'##########

 

The Defendant contends that the particulars of claim vague and are 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. The Claimant has not complied with paragraph 3 of the PAPDC (Pre Action Protocol) Failed to serve a letter of claim pre claim pursuant to PAPDC changes of the 1st October 2017.It is respectfully requested that the court take this into consideration pursuant to 7.1 PAPDC.

 

2. Paragraph 1 is noted. I have in the past had financial dealings with Capital One. I do not recall the precise details of the agreement and have therefore sought clarity by way of CPR 31.14 and section 78 request.

3.Paragraph 2 is denied I am unaware of what account the claimant refers to.

4.Paragraph 3 is denied I cant ever recall receiving any Notice of Assignment from August 2012 or ever having being approached pre litigation with regards this alleged debt.

5.It is therefore denied with regards to the Defendant owing any monies to the Claimant, the Claimant has yet to provide any evidence of assignment/balance/breach requested by CPR 31. 14, therefore 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 and evidence the service of a Default Notice pursuant to sec 87 (1) of the CCA1974
(d) show how the Claimant has the legal right, either under statute or equity to issue a claim;

6. On receipt of this claim I requested by way of a CPR 31.14 request and a section 77/78 for copies of any documents referred to within the Claimants particulars to establish what the claim is for. The claimant has yet to comply to my section 78 request and remain in default and with regards to my CPR 31.14 request. 


7. As per 
Civil Procedure Rule 16.5(4), it is expected that the Claimant prove the allegation that the money is owed.

8. On the alternative, as the Claimant is an assignee of a debt, it is denied that the Claimant has the right to lay a claim due to contraventions of Section 136 of the Law of Property Act and Section 82A of the consumer credit Act 1974.


9. 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.
