Bryan Carter has started legal proceedings against me (my fault really for ignoring their letters) and I have received court papers for a ccj regarding this. I then sent a cca letter with £1 PO to BC on 10/04/2007 requesting proof of signed agreement. BC received my letter next day 11/04/2007 but I didn't hear anything from them until yesturday 13/05/2007. They have only sent statements of my account for the debt but not the actual signed credit agreement. Can they still enforce this debt even though they have not sent the agreement to me? PLEASE HELP!

Thanx for replying Curlyben. What do I do about the CCJ they have started against me. I let the court know I was waiting for BC to reply with the info I requested, but now they have only sent the statements, is there any way I can get the court to stop the CCJ proceedings?

Now I'm NOT a legal person and hopefully beter advice will arise shortly, but for the moment I'll have to do.

 

You need to make the court aware of what yoy have done concerning the "debt" especially the failure of BC to produce the CCA.

Also bring to the coutrts attention that BC have ceased trading as of Feb 28 and as such shouldn't be trying to enforce this debt.

Be VERY careful whose advice you listen too

Just for more information, are the "court" papers real, or just another attempt to scare you.

 

Can you post some of the detail on them, or even scann ?

I've put a call out for more help on this.

The court papers are real from Northampton CC Bulk Centre. I had to reply to the court to allow 28 days instead of 14 days to respond to the claim so it's all legit unfortunately. That's why I needed to know what to tell the court since BC haven't supplied the agreement. Should I ask BC again to supply the papers?

Anyone contacted Laiste? She's brilliant with info (she's a lawyer from what I understand). She was very helpful to my OH and dislikes DCAs with a passion.

 

She will be able to advise on what's the best way forward and doesn't mind people asking for help. She is very busy though so it might be a little while before she can get back to you.

Symeon, have you asked the court about the legality of the paperwork.

 

If the claim documents are signed by Bryan Carter him after 27/02/07, maybe it's not lawful and the claim will have to be withdrawn until his position is sorted out.

 

If you have letters or whatever in your possession, signed by Bryan Carter on Bryan Carter letter-headed paper you need to send copies to the Solicitors Regulation Authority at Leamington Spa, they're very interested in what he's up to.

Hi Robdblynd,

 

The claim form from the court is dated 28 MAR 2007 and is signed Bryan Carter. After requesting the CCA from BC I received a letter back dated 11 May 2007 saying:

 

 

We refer to your recent letter or telephone conversation with this office.

 

Please find enclosed account documents, provided by our client, as requested.

 

We hope that this clarifies matters and look forward to hearing from you with your proposals for the discharge of this account.

 

Yours sincerely,

 

BRYAN CARTER & CO.

I am not a legal expert my advice is given without prejudice and is purely my opinion only. If you are in doubt please seek professional advice.

If the letters are on Bryan Carter letterheads then send copies to SRA with covering letter.

 

If the claim form says address for payment as Bryan Carter Solicitors at his office in De Havilland Drive, Weybridge then speak to someone like the court manager and get their advice. He shouldn't be asking for payment etc, nor signing County Court Summons if he's not trading.

 

That raises the issue of Fraud surely or is it false representation. Either way it's not good for him.

 

I'd also write to the original creditor and advice them that he ceased trading in that name in Feb and call into question the legality of them using a solicitor who is attempting to get money using a firm that's no longer operating.

Hi again Robdblynd, sorry new to this :) . Who is SRA? The letters are on BC letterheads and the claim form says exactly what you wrote so it looks like I'll have to get some advice. Thanx

Sorry Symeon, the SRA is

 

Solicitors Regulation Authority,

Victoria Court,

8 Dormer Place,

Leamington Spa,

Warwickshire.

CV32 5AE.

 

They're looking into the activity of Mr Carter and have received several lots of info from CAGgers about this chap.

 

Why not ring a solicitor, they often give free advice over the phone if it takes no more than a few minutes. Just outline what you have about him and that the forms etc are signed by him (with the dates) and you'll get the info you need to take you forward.

 

Good luck and keep us posted. :)
