    • Points to emphasise with the court: There is no problem about money. The entire issue is about the quality of the work which has been carried out. The shabby workmanship has been confirmed by an independent survey for which you have paid £355. The survey report has been provided to the builders and yet they have so far ignored it and declined to comment. There were four contracts in all. Two of them were completed to a satisfactory standard and the price of those contracts was paid without any difficulty. The dispute relates simply to two remaining contracts which are the subject of the independent report. From the outset of this dispute instead of trying to hold a dialogue her adopted a barracking and bullying approach – the same approach which is being used by their debt collection agency. You have received threats that they will trespass onto your property and remove your driveway. They are completely aware that there is a legitimate dispute and in fact one of the directors admitted that the work was not up to standard. You have embarked on the pre-action protocol as a prelude to legal action. Legal action in respect of one of the contract has now been issued. You are still hoping that the builders will deal with the matter without the need to take the litigation into the court room. The building company have attempted to avoid the independent scrutiny and transparency of the court process. The proper procedure for addressing this dispute would have been to start a legal action against you. The building company have decided not to use a transparent process and have the evidence weighed by a judge. The building company has preferred to shortcut the process and to use the strong-arm tactic of trying to have you declared bankrupt. This is clearly an abuse of the process. If there were serious questions about your intention to avoid payment, it would have been open for the building company to issue proceedings and eventually to have required that you would pay the disputed some into court. You would have complied with such an order without any difficulty – but they have chosen not to litigate. Now that litigation is underway, you believe that the best course of action is to allow the litigation to take its course and for the building company either to come to the table or else for the matter to be decided by a court after having weighed all the evidence. I'm going to say that if you had been more responsive in the way that you had been dealing with this so far – and as we have been encouraging you to do throughout this process, we would be well advanced by now and there wouldn't be this furious last moment dash to prevent a bankruptcy procedure. I hope that in view of what is happening you will now re-prioritise this matter.   I don't know what your temperament is like but when the hearing starts, you must remain very level in your approach and your tone of voice. Simply make your points. Listen very carefully to what is being said to you. While the judge is speaking, you should make notes so that you don't forget to refer to a particular point if something important is said. In the heat of the moment and in the stress, it is very easy to hear the judge say something to which you want to respond and then as the judge continues, you forget to say it. Once again, I expect that @Andyorch will be along at some point although he may be away for the weekend.

    • hey your doing fine, stop sweating, it's really no big deal, you need to understand you are what is classed as 'a litigant in person' - meaning joe public against what can be seen as a somewhat daunting judicial system, that is too your advantage.   IMHO thats just a reprint of your defence, it might be better to structure around something like this, whos basis is around the WS in the thread i pointed too.         WITNESS STATEMENT OF DEFENDANT XXXXXXXXXXXX CLAIM NO. XXXXXXXX                                                                                                                                   Defendant: XXXXXXX                                                                                                                               Date XX/XXX2019 IN THE COUNTY COURT AT                                                                               CLAIM NO:XXXXXXX XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX     BETWEEN     XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX      CLAIMANT     AND XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX     DEFENDANT    1. It is my understanding that the claimant is an Assignee, a buyer of defunct disputed or bad debts, which are bought on mass portfolios at a much reduced cost to the amount claimed ...10p to 15p in the £1 and which the original creditors have already written off as a capital loss and claimed against taxable income. Idem Capital securities issue claims to circumvent and claim the full amount of debt to maximise profit.    2. As an assignee or creditor as defined in section 189 of the CCA this applies to this new requirement on assignment of rights. This means that when an assignee purchases debts (or otherwise acquires rights under a credit agreement) it also acquires certain obligations to the borrower including the duty to comply with CCA requirements (such as the rules on statements and notices and other post-contractual information). The assignee becomes the creditor under the agreement. This ensures that essential consumer protections under the CCA cannot be circumvented by assigning the debt to a third party.   I accept I have in the past had financial dealings with {insert original creditor name]. That being a Loan Agreement . I do not recall the precise details of the agreement but do recall it was on or about the year xxxx.   After seeking advice this led me to check all paperwork I held with creditors, from this I could not find any Credit Agreement relating to the account the claimant is referring to.   I have therefore sought clarification and requested copies of the agreements from the claimant by way of a section 77 request    exhibits   (DOC 1) A CPR 31.14 request pursuant to sec 61 B of the CCA1974 was sent xx/xx/xxxx via Royal Mail signed for and shows as received xx/xx/xxxx. Request for the following :   1.a copy of the default notice served under section 87 of the consumer credit act 3. Notice of assignment 4. A statement of account   (DOC 1A) To date NO default notice been produced.    (DOC 2) A Section 77 request was sent on xx/xx/xxxx via royal mail signed for and shows as received xx/xx/xxx. The claimant to date has failed to comply to my Section 77 request.   the defendant has failed to produce a copy of the Default notice issued by the original creditor,  as far as I can recall any breach with the original creditor would have been on or around xxxx.   The claimant as an assignee would not be able to legally issue a Default Notice as the debt would have already been terminated before assignment.   (DOC 3) I sort clarity of any Default Notice by the way of a CPR 31.14 request, sent via Royal mail signed for on xx/xx/xxxx and shows as received signed for xx/xx/xxxx   The claimant has still yet to comply to my CPR 31.14 request with regard to clarity of any valid default notice issued, as yet I have never received an original or seen a copy of a valid default notice from the defendant.   Conclusion   I contest that the documents I have received do not meet the requirements and prescribed terms of a legal binding credit agreement, and that the claimant has acknowledged that they are unable to produce an agreement and are unable to enforce litigation action.     I also state NO VALID Default has been produced from the claimant.   I believe that the that the facts stated in the witness state are true   ..................   have you received the claimants witness statement yet...   the above is just musings...

Re: Me vs Littlewoods Catalogue help needed

hi all new to the site,

 

i sent off a cca to morcrot regarding a littlewoods debt and recieved the following letter, just wanted to know where i go from here regarding getting the information off my credit file logged under littlewoods and littlewoods finance......

 

the letter reads

 

 

Dear Mr xxxx

 

re: moorcroft ref:evil:xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

client ref: xxxxxxxxx

 

i write to confrirm that our client (littlewoods ltd) has been unable to supply a signed credit agreement for you. we hae therefore returned pament you have made (they sent back the £1 p.o)

 

we accept that under the section 127 (3) of the consumer credit act 1974 this debt i therefore unenforceable via a court order. we must inform you however that the account still remains outstanding.

 

it isour understanding that goods wich have been charged to your account hae be ordered and delivered to you. we can confirm therefore that a default remains in relation to this account and wouldremind you that makig payment to clear the balance may assist in relation to your credit hitory.

 

please confirm that you accept that goods were oredered and received and let us have your ettlement proposals.

 

yours sincerely

The debt may be outstanding but they can do diddly squat to make you pay it.

 

Do NOT admit to receiving any Goods from Littlewoods. The chances of Moorcrap removing your default would be slim unless you paid them a substantial amount of the alleged balance. Ignore them and see what they come up with. The importan thing to remember its UNENFORCEABLE

You have to be very careful what you write to Morecrap as they are slimy individuals. They may promise you all sorts and still not remove the default.

 

For the moment I would be inclined to sit tight. The ball is in their court. They have an unenforceable debt and will be looking some sort of return on the pennies they paid for it.

isn't it illegal to put false information on a credit file, im guessing that if there is no cca, and they cant prove the debt, then i shouldn't have a big red mark on my credit file, is there anything to quote in a letter such as with the cca act
Of course its illegal but considering one of the top CRAs is owned by a DCA getting it removed is not as simple as that. I suugest you read kennyparkroads thread( the original one you posted in) and you will see how frustrating it can be

 

what if i said to remove the default put it as settled and then when i can see this on the credit file i'll pay them something, and then not bother lol
You havent a snowballs chance in hell of Morecrap agreeing to this. Thats not the way bullies work

 

oh forgot to mention the default is actually listed under littlewoods finance not moorcraftyswines
If thats the case try getting Littlewoods to remove it. Ignore Morcrap they have bought an unenforcable debt and admitted in writing its unenforcable so thats their problem not yours.

see this is where i get confused, morcroft refer to littlewoods as there client, so are they collecting on behalf of littlewoods or have they already paid littlewoods, i.e if i was to pay all of the debt outstanding, not that i can affort to hense the reason im on this forum, would the credit file be updated or would it still say defaulted and moorcroft take my money?

 

also what should i say to littlewoods to get the default removed from my credit file?

You would have to find out if Littlewoods actually sold the debt to Moorcrap. If they bought the debt they would probably have paid pennies per pound for it.

Rigger I'm in a similar but a bit more advanced situation with Littlewoods

 

Littlewoods have stated they are no longer pursuing my debt

 

I've reported them to the Information Commissioners Office who came back with the usual purposes of processing [email protected]@p, to which I responded;

 

The 1st Principle states "Personal data shall be processed fairly and lawfully" I contend that they have committed an offense against the CCA therefore any processing of my data is based on an illegal act.

 

Further to the above I'm in regular contact with a CRA and tho' they state they will not amend their records without Littlewoods say so, they are obliged to carry out an investigation and I'm at the stage where I'm offering enough doubt that they may even take some action.

 

Another useful piece of info worth quoting to both Information Commissioners Office & CRA is as follows

 

"A specific example of this type of case would be where a catologue company has supplied goods to a consumer on credit without entering in to the required credit agreement with the consumer.

The consumer has made some repayments (certainly enough to cover the cost of the goods received but not enough to cover all interest and charges) but has been advised that the agreement is unenforceable and has therefore informed the trader that she will not make any more payments on the account.

The trader has conceded that there is no enforceable agreement but is threatening to make a default entry on the credit reference file.

The opinion of LACORS is that where a creditor accepts that an agreement is unenforceable against a consumer they should not be permitted to 'punish' the consumer by placing a record of the 'default' on their credit reference file.

To do so would be unfair and unreasonable. It would also lessen the impact of the provisions of the Consumer Credit Act which make it clear that a creditor should not be allowed to enforce a credit agreement where the agreement is improperly executed."

 

Hope the above helps

Do you recall signing anything from Littlewoods that could be remotely called a CCA, if not, I seriously doubt Littlewoods or anyone else can produce an executable agreement. All you need to do is wait and respond to their 'smoke n mirrors' correspondence until they finally give in

Keep your head down in case Sh!ttlewoods send a copy of it to Morecrap.

 

I think the best thing to do is tell Morecrap to take a large F*** Off tablet and forget about the default for the moment

following this, will add anything if i can.

 

Moore shouldnt contact you anymore

 

if they do, simply write back informing them by their own admission no cca exists for this account therefore no payments will be forthcoming as the debt is unenforceable, in addition, you want written confirmation that they will no longer take any further action.

 

 

THATS only if they hassle you. Chances are they might just leave it now.

Morecrap will probably still have a few attempts at getting you to pay them something. That is why they asked you if you admit receiving the goods. Should they contact you send then Kennys letter
