    Lightbulb Lowell goaty22

    Hi all,

    I received a court claim from LOWELL through COUNTY COURT BUSINESS CENTRE

    Issue date: 02 March 2017
    Amount: 500
    Claimant: LOWELL PORTOFOLIO
    Solicitor: LOWELL SOLICITORS
    Original creditor: Vanquis

    This account has been defaulted June 2011 and i cleared half the amount with another credit agency (original amount was for one thousands pounds).

    Last payment to the other credit agency was in 2012.

    LOWELL claiming that they have bought this from the other credit agency in 2013.

    What are the options open for me here as i did not acknowledge or admitted anything yet and it look like i am running out of time!

    Your quick replies will be appreciated.

    Hi Goaty22 & welcome to LB.

    First thing to do is acknowledge the claim with the court asap.
    If you don't do so within 19 days of the claim issue date you risk a default judgement.
    Then send a CCA request (CCA s78 is the applicable one) +£1 fee to Lowell Portfolio.
    & a CPR 31.14 request to Lowell Solicitors.
    See the green boxes at the top of this thread - full instructions & template letters there.

    It is also a good idea to SAR the original creditor (Vanquis) asap for all the data they hold.
    Link to SAR - http://www.legalbeagles.info/forums/...ur-information

    It would also be an idea to post up a copy of the Particulars of Claim (or type verbatim), removing personal data. (Without permanently defacing the claim form).

    Documents to request via CPR31.14

    Consumer Credit Act (CCA) regulated agreement
    CCA Default Notice
    *Notice of Assignment
    *Deed of Assignment

    *I'm guessing that the debt was assigned by Vanquis directly to Lowell Portfolio.
    If not, then ask for all intermediate Notices & Deeds.

    Your defence will be due latest 4pm 4th April, provided that Lowells fail to accept the 28 day extension offered via your (forum template) CPR request.

    The debt was not directly assigned to them. I only heard from them few weeks ago.

    So who (name) was/were the other assignee(s)?
    & when did you originally commence the agreement?

    Ok

    I've only had dealings with Moorcroft in their debt collection capacity as an agent of debt 'owner' (though I think they may be debt purchasers in their own right as well).
    If the latter you should have received an assignment notification to that effect.

    unfortunately yes ... it might be easier if you give them a ring tomorrow morning xx
    Debt is like any other trap, easy enough to get into, but hard enough to get out of.

    Hi all,

    Quick update:

    They said they will place the "account" on hold until they receive the requested agreement, statements and default of notice from Vanquis.

    They said that they will will not send me the Deed of Assignment as it is a confidential agreement between their " client" and the original creditor (Vanquis).

    I do not know what client they are talking about here as they also send me a Notice of assignment from Vanquis saying that the account is now owned by LOWELL and dated 2013. I can guarantee you that this letter is fake and the SAR request will unmasked them.

    Even though they placed the account on hold i think i should still submit my defense within 28 days.

    Thanks.

    Thanks MIKE770.

    That is what i though. I will give them until the end of the month before submitting my defense.

    I do not mind paying this debt as i already clear half of it in the past once i am better financially but i will only return that money to either Vanquis if they are going to accept it or i will give it to a charity. I will make sure that LOWELL do not get a penny of that debt.
