Backdoor CCJ for old CAp1 DEbt being chased by Capquest after 13 years


Recommended Posts

Well after 13 years of no communication with any of my old creditors/ DMC's,  today I had a call from Capquest about a Capital One debt!!!

 

They said a CCJ was registered in 12/07.

 

I didnt acknowledge anything, I merely obtained a reference and postal address.

 

Section 2.4 of The Limitation Act states no action can be taken after 6 years. 

 

Am I correct and what's the best letter to send them?

 

Thanks

sadly a CCJ 

1 stops the SB clock

2. is not part of the limitation act as its a court judgement.

 

however, failure to enforce a CCJ within 6yrs makes it very difficult for them do so and ofcourse would have to return to court the court via your objection would no doubt refuse them.

 

it's just some phone jocky trying their luck that you might be a mug and fund their xmas party drinks bill.

 

IMHO you need do nothing 

did you give them your current and correct address?

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...

Hi,

 

No, I did not, I made sure of this. 

 

I want to send them a letter (and advised them this on the phone) but not sure what to send them!!!

 

Thanks

 

I set up my own Ltd company in March 2019 and the registered address was always my accountant.

 

When I changed accountants in May this year I needed to give an address in Wales (I now live in Northern Ireland and it couldn't be used apparently), I changed it to my dads and obviously this is available through Companies House.

 

They have found his number this way I think, but I may be wrong lol.

its an extremely stupid idea to go off radar 

thats why you got this CCJ

 

other than informing them of you correct address in WRITING 

there is nothing else you need to do or state.

 

i have never known an enforcement hearing to succeed on a CCJ outside of 6yrs that has to date not been already enforced BUT as the court wont know your address ...it might well succeed.

 

it is a very stupid idea to run away from debts.

  • dx100uk changed the title to Backdoor CCJ for old CAp1 DEbt being chased by Capquest after 13 years

The CCJ was issued in 12/07, the address was an ex-martial home that was empty.

 

I did not go off radar, my circumstances led to no fixed abode for a good 3 or 4 years.

 

There was no way I would of known the CCJ was issued.

Advice to move forward in life...... - Debt management and Debt self-help - Consumer Action Group

pers i'd  write simply informing them legally of your correct and current address.

nope said 3 times what to do and not.

 

should they try , the court will write first.

as long as the debt owner has your correct and current address.

 

but i've never heard of it for a ccj of that age.

Section 24 of the Limitation Act 1980 applies to CCJs being enforced after six years:

 

"24 Time limit for actions to enforce judgments.

(1)An action shall not be brought upon any judgment after the expiration of six years from the date on which the judgment became enforceable.

(2)No arrears of interest in respect of any judgment debt shall be recovered after the expiration of six years from the date on which the interest became due."

 

https://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/1980/58/section/24

 

However, if enforcement action is unable to be undertaken within those six years or enforcement action has been taken but was unsuccessful, leave from the court can be obtained to enforce after the six year limitation. It depends on what action has been taken to enforce the CCJ when the limitation period expires as to whether or not the court will grant leave. It's difficult to do but not impossible. Considering the limitation period for CCJ granted on 12/2007 expired on 12/2013, there is a 7 year gap from the end of the limitation period expiring. The creditor would need an extremely good reason why it has not been enforced before now such as you living in a country which does not have reciprocal enforcement agreements.

Thank you. As an update, I did a Trust Online search which came up with nothing obviously. I then rang Nottingham County Court and they said that as its so old they can't even give me any details as they changed computer systems and they don't/can't get any details on the CCJ even if they wanted too.

Capquest doesn't have a hope in hell of enforcing the CCJ unless there are extreme mitigating circumstances. They are most likely trying their luck in you being worried enough by the letter to pay without question.

Hi Will,

 

Should I write to them asking them to stop calling quoting the fact that it is unenforceable?

 

I did send you a PM.

 

Thanks
