Hi everyone 

 

I’ve still had no response to my letters so I was looking at what there claim is and think the following defense should work. Please let me know if I need to change anything. 
 

Thanks 

Andrew 

 

 

1.The claim is for the sum of £355.70

due by the Defendant under an agreement

regulated by the Consumer Credit Act 1974

for a Vanquis account with an account reference of 

 

2.The Defendant failed to maintain contractual

payments required by the agreement and a

Default Notice was served under s.87(1) of

the Consumer Credit Act 1974 which has not

been complied with.

 

3.The debt was legally assigned to the

claimant on 23-09-19, notice of

which has been given to the defendant.

 

4.The claim includes statutory interest under

S.69 of the County Courts Act 1984 at a rate

of 8% per annum from the date of assignment

to the date of issue of these proceedings in

the sum of £28.46

 

 

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 denied. Whilst I have had dealings with Vanquis Card in the past I cannot recall the specifics of the alleged agreement.

 

3.Paragraph 2  is denied. I am not aware of service of a Default Notice by the original creditor the claimant refers to within its particulars of claim.

 

4. Paragraph 3 is denied. I have no knowledge of who the claimant is nor have I been provided with any Notice of Assignment pursuant to the Law of Property Act 1925.

 

5. It is denied that any amounts are due under any agreement.

 

6. On receipt of this claim I requested information pertaining to this claim from Overdales Solicitors Ltd by way of a CPR 31:14 request sent via 1st class with proof of postage on 28/04/2022. Further to the above I sent Lowell Portfolio I Ltd a section 78 request via 1st class with proof of postage on 28/04/2023. To date, neither Overdales Solicitors nor Lowell Portfolio I Ltd are yet to furnish me with the requested information and therefore remains in default of said request and unable to enforce the alleged agreement until such time it can comply.

 

7.Therefore with the court’s permission the Claimant is put to strict proof to:-

 

a) show and disclose how the Defendant has entered into an agreement;

b) show and disclose how the Claimant has reached the amount claimed for;

c) show and evidence the nature of breach and service of a Default Notice pursuant to Sec 87 (1) CCA1974.

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

 

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

 

9. On the alternative, if 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 crediticon Act 1974.6.

 

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.

We live in a world where seeing is not believing, where only a few know what really happened.

I would remove point 5..you cant state that after saying in point 1 you are unsure or cant recal what the claim/agreement is.

 

Rest is fine.
