My friend is a user of this group and advised I reach out for help. They have given me some limited knowledge, but I would really appreciate someone give me some quick direction.

 

Essentially I had a credit card worth £6000. My original agreement was for a lloyds credit card in 2005 and stopped paying in 2008 when my business fell in the recession.

 

Between 11/12/12 - 5/9/17 i paid cabot financial £10 pm. Eventually i stopped paying them and they have been harassing me. My friend advised i just ignore.

 

I received letters dated 19 nov 2021 i thought they were just usual harassing circulars.

 

Today I received a court claim letter court dated 30/12/21.

 

There was no title written Pre-action-protocol on the letter dated 19 nov 2021, seemed very misleading to me, i thought they had to do that and had to make this clear?

 

However I accept responsibility that this was my fault, i only told my friend it was one page i received, i got confused. i never replied, i thought it was more junk from them. Now i don’t know what to do.

 

i’m aware i need to submit a defence on the money claims site, but i’m not sure what to write? And what else to do. Believe i only have 28 days to submit something online.

 

Shall i still reply to the PAP now?

 

Should i be requesting my CCA?

 

i have read a bit and got and idea of what to do, im just not sure in what order. if someone can help me please? Do i have any chance here or shall i try and borrow some money and try to settle?

 

i have attached the pack received from the 19th nov 2021 and then a separate pdf of court letters dated 30 dec 2021. i hope i have redacted correctly.

 

Thank you in advance

Thank you very much DX100UK, that helped a lot.

 

POC

 

1. By an agreement between Lloyds TSB and the defendant on or around 24/ 01/ 2005 ref xxxxxx Lloyds TSB agreed to issue the defendant with a credit card.

 

2.The defendant failed to make the minimum payments due.

 

3.The agreement was terminated following the service of a default notice.

 

4.The agreement was assigned to the claimant.

 

The claimant therefore claims 1.5546.36

2. costs

 

DEFENCE

 

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. It is accepted I have in the past had agreements with Lloyds TSB. I do not recall the precise details or agreement nor the claimant either, having failed to provide an agreement/account number within its particulars of claim and have therefore sought verification from the claimant.

 

3.     Paragraph 2 is noted but until such time the claimant can clarify the agreement account number any breach has yet to be proven.   

 

4.     I am unaware of any legal assignment or Notice of Assignment allegedly served by either the Claimant or Lloyds TSB pursuant to the Law of Property Act 1925.

 

5. Paragraph 3 is denied. I am unaware of any Notice of default served.

 

6.     It is denied with regards to the Defendant owing any monies to the Claimant. The Claimant has failed to provide any evidence of the Agreement/Assignment/Default notice or Termination 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 or evidence a Default Notice /Notice of Sums in Arrears,

d) show how the Claimant has the legal right, either under statute or equity to issue a claim;

 

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 5th of January 2022 I requested to The Claimants Solicitors, Mortimer Clarke by way of a CPR 31.14 copies of the documents referred to within the Claimants particulars to establish what the claim is for. Mortimer Clarke have failed to fulfil my CPR 31:14 request.

 

9.     On the 5th of January 2022 I made a section 78 legal request to the claimant for a copy of the Consumer Credit Agreement. The claimant has as of 27/01/22 failed to comply.

 

10.  By reason of the facts and matters set out above, it is denied that the Claimant is entitled to the relief claimed or any relief.

 

End.

___________________________________

 

I did find this in some defences, but I’m not sure if this ‘PAP’ failed to comply:

'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'

 

I read this 3. And it seems they did, so I should leave out?

This is exactly what i got in the post, what i attached in the first post. i don't have any other letters from them. Sadly i never kept what they previously posted me because i thought they were just nuisance letters. However they were 1 page letters 'call us now' type of things. Nothing like this.

 

This is all i ever had from them before this letter/pack 19th November, claim 30 December. It didn't actually say Pre Action Protocol anywhere but i'm not sure if it should.

 

Subsequently i have had a response from Mortlake yesterday saying they have passed on my requests to the claimant blah blah. No other news from the claimant.

 

So i shall remove '/account number' from the defence in that case.

 

Thank you

Hi and thank you

 

On the 4th page of the pap, they have written the card number and titled it agreement number i have just noticed it yes. But i removed that wording from point 2

 

i noticed point 3, so shall i change to:

3.     Paragraph 2 is noted but until such time the claimant can clarify the agreement if any breach has yet to be proven.   

 

or just remove this point 3 as below i have mentioned my request for the agreement?

 

i dont understand about the lines and the poc. but i wrote it exactly as it was in the form in red?

 

Yes i see they have not put what the claim is for, so should i then actually put back about the account number in points 2 and 3?

 

Sorry ive got a bit confused now

Link to post
Share on other sites

yes.

 

the simple answer is that in the court claim poc, they have not stated an A/C number when they should, thus they could rock up later with any old agreement/paperwork as long as its a card aagreement and say its correct as long as it has all the other criteria.

 

sorry my bad

put those lines back...

Good evening to you

 

DEFENCE

 

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. It is accepted I have in the past had agreements with Lloyds TSB.

3.     Paragraph 2 is noted but until such time the claimant can clarify the agreement account number any breach has yet to be proven.   

 

4.     I am unaware of any legal assignment or Notice of Assignment allegedly served by either the Claimant or Lloyds TSB pursuant to the Law of Property Act 1925.

 

5. Paragraph 3 is denied. I am unaware of any Notice of default served.

 

6.     It is denied with regards to the Defendant owing any monies to the Claimant. The Claimant has failed to provide any evidence of the Agreement/Assignment/Default notice or Termination requested by CPR 31. 14.

10.  By reason of the facts and matters set out above, it is denied that the Claimant is entitled to the relief claimed or any relief.
