He managed to contact BC this morning, who were not quite as helpful as they might have been(expectedly) Spoke to three seperate people, customer services, supervisor, then "old acconts".

Absolutely would not, or could not provide the last date of any payment entry made on the account. However, they did state that the account had been defaulted August 2014.

Account formally assigned/re-assigned 28/09/18 (Hoist Finance)

 

All other information would only be provided by formal application directed  to the assignee in this case.

 

I wiil begin the CCA process along with the CPR's

Need some advice with some of the wording perhaps

Then the defence by 2nd March.

 

Thanks

just use the templates for cca/cpr already provided. in the link above.

 

BC had a nasty habit of defaulting accounts several months after the date when they should have, (3rd missed or short payment) 

it might pay to get an sar running to BC.

 

on the front of not supplying the last payment date, did he quote the prevention of fraud act and the data protection act..they must reveal the data if it was within 6yrs or confirm it's outside of 6yrs if they wont supply it.

Are you asking if my guy mentioned the Fraud Act and the data  protection act.     

 

  Have just spoken to him. No he did not.

Neither did the any of the personnel from BC.    

That being the case, should he contact them again to prese it home?

 

Thanks for the advice on CPR and CCA's. I get them off asap.

 

Will the SAR require a written signature?

tell him to go ring BC again

 

if they refuse again

 

state that under

the data protection act

and

the prevention of fraud act

they MUST hold data for 6yrs

 

ask to speak to a supervisor

 

if they state they hold no data BECAUSE that 6yrs period has expired then its a good sign it IS statute barred.

 

if they still refuse

 

tell them you shall be on the phone to the information commissioners office as soon as you put the phone down to lodge a formal complaint against them for with holding your data

 

its far far better to file a statute barred defence if you can as its absolute

Not sure about the protocols again.

Have had a go at drawing up a defence on the basis of a lack of paperwork from the Claimant.  Not entirely clear with arguements 7 and 8

Hope you can help.

 

Quote

1. The claim is for the sum of £7939.36 arising from the defendants breach of a regulated consumer credit agreement referenced Under no xxxx926xxxxxx03

 

2. The defendant has failed to remedy the breach in accordance with a Default Notice issued pursuant to ss.87(1) and 88 of the Consumer Credit Act 1974.

 

3.The Claimant claims the sums due from the Defendant following the legal assignment of the agreement from Hoist Portfolio Holding 2 Ltd(Ex Barclaycard) Written notice of the assignment has been given.

 

4.The Claimant claims

1. The sum of £7939.36

2. Costs

 

1. 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.

 

2. Paragraph 1 is noted. The Defendant has had past financial dealings with Barclaycard . Defendant is unaware of what account the claimant refers to. Defendant is unaware of what alleged debt the claimant refers to having failed to adequately particularise its claim.

 

3. Paragraph 2 is denied. Defendant denies having received statutory notices in the form of a Default Notice required under s87(1) of the consumer credit  Act. Defendant denies having received statutory notices in the form of Notice of Sums in Arrears as required by the Consumer Credit Act.

 

4 That this debt was formally assigned to Hoist Portfolio Holding Ltd is denied. The Defendant denies ever receiving any Notice of Assignment.

 

5. It is therefore denied with regards to the Defendant owing any monies to the Claimant, the Claimant has failed to provide any evidence of assignment/balance/breach, 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 how the Claimant has the legal right, either under statute or equity to issue a claim;

 

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

 

7. 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.

 

 

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

 Thanks

2 is repetitive and is the following true ? Given that he has rang BC and confirmed last payment details ?

 

Defendant is unaware of what account the claimant refers to. Defendant is unaware of what alleged debt the claimant refers to

Thanks Andyorch.

Point taken.

How should we edit point 2?

Edit the first sentence: Paragraph 1 is noted. The Defendant has had past financial dealings with Barclaycard.

Strike out: Defendant is unaware of what account the claimant refers to. Defendant is unaware of what alleged debt the claimant refers to etc..

 

Would the defendant be able to suggest that the amount claimed is now un-enforceable?

 

Just to clarify for me to have a better understanding please. Who is the Claimant in this case? Hoist or BC?

2. Paragraph 1 is noted. The Defendant has had financial dealings in the past with Barclaycard . However the defendant is unsure of what account the claimant refers to or any outstanding balance and has therefore sought clarity from the claimant by way of a section 78 request and a CPR 31.14 request.
