  • Marlin Europe II Lloyds CC

    Hi All,

    Looking for some help, I received a Claim form and have just Acknowledged it on MCOL today. The claim is for a 9k credit card from Lloyds and the Claimant is Marlin and Mortimer clarke are the solicitors.
    Just over 10 days ago I sent Marlin a CCA request along with a £1 but have had nothing back yet.

    The Credit card was take out in 2003 and fell behind in 2007 then set up a payment plan with the last payment being made in 10/2011. I missed one payment in 5/2011 due to moving house and then they started bombarding me with calls and letters and i just gave up on 10/2011.

    I have all my Documents from Lloyds including my agreement dated back to 2003 and in the claim form particulars it refers to the agreement. What i have noticed in the agreement is its stamped at the top with the date 6/2003 and the stamp by my signature 5/2003 but the signature and date that i signed is 2005!! Two years difference between them!

    Not sure how i stand with this any help would be grateful.

    Re: Marlin Europe II Lloyds CC

    You seem to have got off to a good start by sending a s 77-79 CCA Request to Marlin.

    When you say you have all your documents from Lloyds do you mean you've kept everything in a file from Day 1 or do you mean you sent a Subject Access Request to Lloyds and you're looking at date inconsistencies in the paperwork you received from them (Lloyds)?

    If you haven't sent a SAR to Lloyds then do that pronto.

    You should also send a CPR 31.14 Request to Mortimer Clarke solicitors. This forum has a template letter which you'll need to tweak to suit your situation. Here's the link > http://legalbeagles.info/forums/show...382#post410382

      Hi Di,

      I did a SAR to lloyds 2 years ago so have all my documents here. The agreement i have has been date stamped 2003 but my signature that i have signed is dated 2005 so something doesn't look right.

      Just doing my CPR but not sure what date to use in the filing my defence onXX XXXX 201X part.

        Re: Marlin Europe II Lloyds CC

        Did you send your SAR to Lloyds before or after the account had been assigned to Marlin?

        If it was before then you may need to send anther one so you capture the events surrounding the Default Notice (if any)/Termination/Assignment.

        The Transaction Log will be useful.

        Was it assigned by Lloyds to Marlin or could it have been assigned to another debt purchaser first who then later assigned it to Marlin? Assignment issues are important to winning a case.

        You have 19 days from the claim Issue Date to file your Acknowledgment of Service which you say you've already done.

        You have 33 days from the claim Issue Date to file your Defence.

          Hi,

          Just an update.

          I have sent a CPR 31.14 Request to Mortimer Clarke solicitors on the 6th May and have had no response back from any of them yet. One thing i did not do was to send them using registered post. Should i resend them? I have photograph evidence of the CPR letter to MCS and the envelope with a franking stamp on it.

          my case will be on the 22nd May so not sure what to do next.

            Hi
            What exactly do you mean"my case will be on 22nd may"

            Is this the day your defence is due?

            If that is so, any proceedings will be some way down the line

            Are you still at the point of waiting for a response to your CCA request and you CPR requests. If your defence is due in on 22nd may, that is next Monday so I would think you could try to submit it over the weekend (once sat's post has arrived)

            If in doubt take professional legal advice or contact the CAB

                I make it 23rd May but 1 day earlier won't hurt - better safe than sorry

                If you are not tied up at work on Monday, submit it then. I know the MCOL website is not he most reliable thing on the world

                    Not really, as long as you can give evidence in your witness statement to say that on x date you placed x letter in the post to x company that should suffice

                          Did you get Proof of Posting from the post office even if you didn't send them by Royal Mail Signed For?

                            Hi Di

                            I did not get proof of post at the post office but did get the receipt for the postal order. I put a copy of the CCA request with the CPR as the template advises also took a photo of the letters and franked envelope with the date on.

                              is the photograph time stamped in any way? If it was taken using your mobile phone then it will show that. I would suggest attaching the photograph for completeness.

                              it would be good practice for you to obtain certificates of posting for anything you send to Mortimer Clarke while the court case is ongoing. Even better would be to email them a copy of anything you post the same day. Do you have an email address for them?

                              We recently attended a small claims trial where the claimants legal representative sought an adjournment on the grounds we hadn't served a witness statement. Unfortunately for the claimant we had sent it special delivery and it had been signed for by them. - and we had the receipt at court to prove it. The trial proceeded and the claim was dismissed as agreement was unenforceable etc.

                              If claimants solicitors try to pull that one with solicitors they would have no compunction with a LIP!
