    • @Tom Price   Thank you for your note, which is very helpful.   Did VCS cite the following cases?   1. VCS v Ward 2. Semark Jullien   VCS threw the two cases to me in the last minute at my previous hearing. The judge accepted the extra WS and adjourned my case for me to read/defend it. My case is going to be held on 30th March.   Thanks!      
    • Hi,   So, I received a letter today from a debt collection law firm threatening CCJ action on behalf of Volvo/Santander for a voluntary termination of a vehicle. (I did request Volvo/Santander that a complaints procedure be started as I think the terms of the contract were miss sold but alas, they ignored me and went straight to CCJ action via a debt collection law firm!).   I digress, anyway, so the letter was addressed to me, it included my original signed contract, but, there was another document inside. This document was another hire contract with some other person details on it!   It includes:   Their full name Their address and postcode Their handwritten signature Their email address Their mobile telephone number Their debt amount Their vehicle registration    Is this a breach of the data protection act? On the flip side, my details could be in the hands of someone else, who knows?    What should I do now, is this a trump card that I could use if this matter does actually go to court? I did intend to argue against this debt in the first place.   Any advice on this would be most grateful!   TIA         
    • Hi guys   I received a county court claim form on Thursday dated 18/02/2021 saying that the claimant (CABOT FINANCIAL (UK) is claiming for the sum of £2140.14 on behalf of  NEW DAY LTD RE MARBLES. but it requests all documents to be sent to MORTIMER CLARKE SOLICITORS.   Now i think i did have a marbles card a while ago although my partner says that that was a capital one card.   But either way i don't like the idea of these parasites chasing me for money for a debt they probably bought for £10.    From looking around here it seems that i should be sending them a CCA request and a CPR 31.14.   I've bought a £1 postal order.   Is there anything else i need to do?   Thanks for any help given
    • Yes that is an absolute must. Generally the Council has no wish to see people committed to prison for Council Tax debt. They want to see the debt recovered where it is properly due and the debtor has the ability to pay. If he hasn't that ability they will take into account the debtor's financial situation and make any arrangements they can. But only a court can remit some or all of the debt. The more you engage with the Council the easier this will be.
    • I think you'd need to have formally noted you were working under protest at the time.

    • Hi @BankFodder
      Sorry for only updating you now, but after your guidance with submitting the claim it was pretty straight forward and I didn't want to unnecessarily waste your time. Especially with this guide you wrote here, so many thanks for that
      So I issued the claim on day 15 and they requested more time to respond.
      They took until the last day to respond and denied the claim, unsurprisingly saying my contract was with Packlink and not with them.
       
      I opted for mediation, and it played out very similarly to other people's experiences.
       
      In the first call I outlined my case, and I referred to the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 as the reason to why I do in fact have a contract with them. 
       
      In the second call the mediator came back with an offer of the full amount of the phone and postage £146.93, but not the court costs. I said I was not willing to accept this and the mediator came across as a bit irritated that I would not accept this and said I should be flexible. I insisted that the law was on my side and I was willing to take them to court. The mediator went back to Hermes with what I said.
       
      In the third call the mediator said that they would offer the full amount. However, he said that Hermes still thought that I should have taken the case against Packlink instead, and that they would try to recover the court costs themselves from Packlink.
       
      To be fair to them, if Packlink wasn't based in Spain I would've made the claim against them instead. But since they are overseas and the law lets me take action against Hermes directly, it's the best way of trying to recover the money.
       
      So this is a great win. Thank you so much for your help and all of the resources available on this site. It has helped me so much especially as someone who does not know anything about making money claims.
       
      Many thanks, stay safe and have a good Christmas!

Welcome 2010 £9k Secured Loan subject to CCJ - mortimer say i still owe £18k?


Recommended Posts

We applied for a joint loan for £9000 in 2010 which was secured against our home,

in 2012 we were declared bankrupt but because we kept our house the loan stood

while we were going through our financial problems we defaulted on the loan.

 

We had then started making payments but with all the interest etc it went past the £9000 we originally borrowed.

We got the loan down to £6000 then hubby lost job and we seriously couldn't even afford to pay a penny and again it built back up.

 

The debt is now with a solicitor and now we owe according to them £18000.

I have requested from welcome finance every payment we have made, every statement etc they have refused.

 

We are only making payments of £65 a month going to take forever but its also gone to a ccj which should have been removed on Oct last year.

 

Where can I go for help with the dispute over the amount we owe.

Thanks

 

Solicitor is mortimore Clarke

get an sar off to welcome they can't refuse.

 

who are mortimers client, the claimant of the CCJ and the charge upon your deeds.

 

welcome would have added £1000's in unlawful penalty fees for everything from letters/phonecalls/arrears fees/it's raining today, your fault.

when was the CCJ attained too please?

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...

Thanks for your reply.

We didn't even know they issued us with a ccj until I today got a credit report and it comes up, we had no paperwork warning us. 

 

I don't know when the ccj was issued just now on my credit report says it gets removed oct 2020. 

 

Mortimore Clark are welcome finance solicitor as far as I am aware... Nothing to do with the ccj. 

 

I know the ccj has been added to our property as end of this year we will be in position to pay of mortgage and its £18000 more then what we owe and mortgage company said its a charge for a loan so in theory we may pay it twice if I am paying solicitors (well in small amounts)

Ofcourse you wont be playing twice.

i think you dont fully  understand how a secured loan nor a ccj works.

 

You should have a charge dated from when you signed up to welcome against the property. That reminds until settled.

 

The fact someone, could have been welcome more likely cabot ? Got a default ccj in oct 2014 doesn't change anything with regards to what you ultimately pay, just a few more fee as it went to court

 

Your credit file will show who got the ccj

Your online deeds will show you who owns the charge now.

 

I suspect as welcome vanished in 2012 if not before i suggest the debt was sold on ? And the above won't show welcomes name?

Right OK.. So there is nothing I can do about the extra charges, the high interest etc...

As I stated, end of year we might in a position to offer to pay what originally we borrowed

but no way are we going to pay £18000

you will also need a copy of the CCJ and the particulars of claim on the claimform as...

you'll need the particulars of claim as we don't know the judgement sum nor if post judgemental interest was allowed.

did you defend it?

did you ignore it?

did you not get it? 

did you know nothing about it?

 

its very rare on welcome debts either taken to court by welcome (doubtful in 2013) or a DCA (more likely) 

i will suggest the debt was already at £18k before the CCJ so nothing bar court charges were added

 

please advise 

i love bashing welcome and DCA but we can't help until we know our actual target and who did what and when.

  • dx100uk changed the title to Welcome 2010 £9k Secured Loan subject to CCJ - mortimer say i still owe £18k?

I will get my paperwork out today and find out more on this ccj... As I stated my husband and I were both unaware of this ccj until we saw it on our credit file last year and was shocked as we had no paperwork, it's not as if we moved address. 

I have all the original paperwork from welcome thank god.

on your credit file- who's name is against the CCJ . not welcomes i bet..

did you go look at your deeds online too?
