Hello again

I have a new situation that has completely thrown me.

 

JC Aquisitions bought a disputed debt for a fixed term loan. The Loan was to pay for training that never happened as the training provider went into liquidation before delivering anything; the loan was paid directly to the training provider.

 

When the lender began chasing for their money it was disputed (as no goods/services had been provided) and a complaint filed- but they didn't uphold it.

 

Move on 6 months and JC Aquisitions come on the scene and are now pursuing this through the small claims route.

 

My question is when they bought the debt (for pennies on the pound) as well as getting the "Rights and Benefits" of the agreement  do they not also take on the "obligations"- ie do they not have to provide the services that the loan had paid for but weren't delivered? They say not!

 

thank you

C

By pursuing do you mean you have actually received a court claim ?

Hi Andy,  yes- its at the bundle stage!

 

They've denied they have any "Obligation" but claim "all of the Rights and Benefits". Have I mistakenly believed as the debt owner, they have the same obligation to provide the training?

 

They've sited "Linden Gardens Trust Ltd v Lenesta Sludge Disposals Ltd"  but that is a property building and is not covered by the CCA.

 

As another quirk, I should also say they're suing me under my  first and middle name. From the outset and even during mediation, I had pointed out they needed to re-issue the claim  (where I would also include a counter-claim for the training)..... but that was ignoredCounty Court Bulk Centre "advised" it should have been re-issued.

 

thanks for getting back to me so quickly

Hi DX

I will get onto the claim and defence, but the WS runs to 80 pages and would take an age to redact.

 

Sorry DX I know its a bit Cheeky, but I was hoping for a quick opinion on "all of the Rights, Benefits and Obligation"   vs  just "all of the Rights and Benefits"   ......    I couldn't find it anywhere. 

 

There is Section 75 protection with the original lender, but does that transfer with the new debt owner?

 

great work on the site.....

the training is nothing to do with them

and you should not ever be counterclaiming.

 

if the original providers case was so strong why didn't they take you to court and crush you as they do in numerous threads here>?

 

get that sticky done please so we know the players and their cards. and get your defence up.

 

to me, sadly you've gone down the wrong route here in defending what is a simple loan claim by a debt buyer, we see JCA/I all the time here and we beat them even in PDL loans with full paperwork

Thanks DX, but as always- left it to the last minute and this is an excellent group, but it wasn't my call at the time.

 

Yes Mantis Shrimp, the training provider completed the loan application and it was digitally signed online at the point of sale; the Lender's Agreement (OmniCapital) includes "Linked Agreement" that provides for suing "  us (Lender) , the supplier (Training Provider), each or both" in the event the goods or services are unsatsfactory or not provided.

Also CCA and DPA requests went in to both lender and debt purchaser. The latter passed this down the line to the original lender.

 

There is an outstanding S77 request on JC Aquisitions, which should have prevented them pursuing this, but if they produce this before the hearing, then it can go ahead.

Until we see the particulars of claim ...your response defence/witness statement and a brief explanation of how the debt arouse/failed timeframe its really pointless posting anything further or even trying to to consider and explain the legalities of Benefits and Obligations within an agreement.

 

A bit like asking us what do we think of this book and you only gave us the last chapter :roll:

 

Flesh your topic out.

Context

 

So Shrimp took out a loan for a training course with a Provider in May 2018.

The Provider completed the loan application forms online and Shrimp digitally signed.

 

In June 2018 when Shrimp contacted Provider to undertake Training they went dark.

The Provider liquidated in Sept/Oct 2018 and Shrimp never had his Training.

 

OmniCapxx (Lender) were chasing payments but Shrimp refused, made no payments and had cancelled Direct Debit.

Lender defaulted the agreement in September 2018 and ended it December 2019 when it was assigned to JCI aqusitions (Assignee).

 

Shrimp made Assignee aware of dispute and again refused to pay as no goods/services were provided and he hadn't (directly) received any monies.

 

Assignee issued proceedings in his Christian names (first, second) but Shrimp acknowledged service anyway (!)

 

Contacted Northampton Bulk Clearing who said claim was defective and should be reissued - that was basis of defence.......

 

yes it is a rather poor defence, but it was to meet the deadline and it was expected Assignee would re-issue.

 

The agreement with the Lender is attached and it provides for suing the Lender and/or Provider.

I asked whether the Assignee should also assume those obligations.....

I think the line I suggested may well serve you much better than that defence. 

I totally agree it isn't great- but 11th hour and a genuine expectation it would be re-issued, or more to the point a hope that the defence would dissuade them from pursuing the debt!  clearly a fail

Fair enough DX but I'm hoping all is not lost- what would you have done ?

as in better chance of successful claim?

 

I also thought not Mantis, until the Assignee claims they have no obligation to provide the goods/service unlike the Assignor (who from the agreement do and they accept they do) so other than the Court fees, the Assignee has nothing to loose.

Totally agree, all correspondence is about the threat of a CCJ when is Shrimp pays within 30 days, it isn't recorded (?).

So would you suggest issuing a claim against the Assignor?

Or somehow incorporate this into a witness statement and defence?

no, that's the straight line from issuing the claim, mediation last September and then a 40 minute preliminary hearing which is scheduled for week after next.

 

On the plus side its allowed Shrimp to put money aside each month in case he ends up losing (which I'm hoping he doesn't but now fearing he might without this site's help?)

You say your at the bundle stage.....I assume you are preparing or have already prepared your witness statement with disclosures ? In line with your Notice of allocation and the courts directions.

 

Can you upload a copy of your statement and the claimants statement along with any disclosures (all fully redacted )

  • dx100uk changed the title to JCI/BW Claimform - old Omni Capital Retail Finance Loan for Training program but provider went bust

At that stage of a preliminary hearing and bundle to produce, hence my late call into the group.

 

If as DX has said, I'm on the wrong route, what would be the best way of dealing with this with the limited timeframe?

 

My plan before my post was:

i) struck out for suing non-entity  (accepting they may simply re-issue)

ii) claim Section 75 'protection' - from Assignee

 

BUT as the Assignee has claimed rights and benefits but not obligations as per Mantis suggestion also now go for a seperate filing against Assignor.

 

If I'm completely way out, please say and if you can give any direction that really would be great.

Thanks Andy

 

Easily corrected without re-issue?  Then can I rely on my "embarrased defence" to produce a robust defence?

 

I haven't produced a WS yet, only ~80 pages of correspondence which probably now won't form the WS. There is a financial statement from Assignor which is how I know when the default occurred and assignment took place. A SAR produced lots of correspondence most of which is for the first time and includes a statement from the Assignor dated a week ago, that also hadn't been received.

 

I genuinely appreciate you spending your time on this, and happy to accept criticism and pointing out what I've got wrong but it isn't the same as helping direct me to what I need to change to get it right.............  do you agree with Mantis Shrimp's suggestions?

And did the original creditor file and serve a Default Notice on you pursuant to section 87(1) of the CCA1974 ?

 

You state no in the link questionnaire I asked you to complete.......that's really all you need to defend this claim apart from the obvious that a service was never provided.


Forget the Assignee....a debt buyer that knows absolutely nothing about the debt, the history, the default, they simply bought a disputed debt for pence in the pound.

 

With regards to section 75 ...you have not made any payments.....you have suffered no loss....where does a section 75 come into this ?
