  • Arrow global v Conkers12

    Received a claim, I received a court form for a debt that was defaulted in 2008, I presumed that the debt was statute barred given it was from 2008. Given that I presumed the debt was statute barred I sent a defense in full using the moneyclaim website stating "The outstanding debt is statute barred under the Limitation Act
    1980. The creditor is breaching the Financial Conduct Authority
    (FCA) rules as indicated in the FCA Consumer Credit Sourcebook." I then found out that statuory bared is based on when the last payment was made. I checked my bank statements and I was paying a token payment until April 2013, Im now fearing that the debt is legal and enforceable. I have read the getting started section of the forum and I will be sending the CCA request and the CPR request. I would like to know what the best cause of action is if the debt is legal and enforceable. I do not want a CCJ on my account as I have spent the last six years with a poor credit history. Is there a template letter to settle the debt, would a reduced offer usually get accepted and how do i go about this?
    Issue Date: 02 May 2017
    Amount approx: 5401.54
    Claimant: Arrow Global Limited
    Solicitor: ShooSmiths llp
    Original Creditor: HSBC
    Particulars of Claim: The claimant's claim is for the sum of 5401.54 monies due from the defendant to the claimant under a regulated agreement between the defendant and HSBC plc
    (NO) and assigned to the claimant on 13/05/2014, notice of which has been passed provided to the defendant
    The defendant has failed to make payment in accordance with the terms of the agreement and a default notice has been pursuant to the Consumer Credit Act 1974.
    The claimant claims the sum of 5401.54
    C has complied, as far as necessary, with the pre-action conduct practice direction.
    Is the debt Statute Barred?

      Hi, Mike. Im not sure what you mean by online application card, the debt was for a personal loan. I used the moneyclaims website a bit hasty as i was almost sure that the debt was barred. Can i amend my defense?

            Hi,

            On the point about amending your defence, this may be possible if the opponents will consent to the amendments. A party may amend his statement of case either with the consent of the parties, or with the permission of the Court. if the opponents do consent they may require you to pay their costs of and occasioned by the amendments, this will mean whatever costs become wasted would be paid by you even if you won the case at trial.

            Of course the opponents may refuse, if they refuse unreasonably then the Court can impose sanctions on them if their unreasonable refusal leads to an application to the Court which could have been avoided.

            On the question of limitation, this is not as straight forward as some think. If however you made a payment in 2013 then it is unlikely limitation has expired in this matter

                Hi pt, do you have any advice on how would go about settling the debt rather than seeing it through. I'm going to wait until I receive the cca and cpt, but if these are all legit will I be able to make offers to settle and will they likely accept?

                  When did you take out this HSBC loan (I see you defaulted in 2008)?

                  Did you have any other financial products with the bank at the time such as an overdraft? HSBC had a habit of amalgamating accounts before sold on which can cause the debt purchaser problems when they come to litigate.

                  The POC refer to the debt being a "regulated agreement" but don't specify whether it was a loan or credit card. They may not even know so no need to give them any clues.

                  So send that s 77-79 CCA Request asap to Arrow with a copy to Shoosmiths when you send them your CPR 31.14 Request. If you refer to 's 77-79' you won't have let on it was a loan (s 77). No need to make life easy for them.

                    Hi Diana, I did have an overdraft but the amount owed looks like it is just for the loan. I have the templates written up, will post on here later.

                      Why not wait to see what happens next before throwing in the towel. I expect you're feeling spooked by comments pointing out your error (it's not SB) so time to think positive and consider your options. Most things are fixable.

                      Amending your Defence will put you in a stronger position to negotiate a settlement if that's what you really want to do. If the Claimant informs the court that they intend to continue then you'll be sent a Directions Questionnaire where you can tick the box for free telephone Mediation.

                      At the moment the Claimant might not know the debt isn't SB since there's no reference to last payment in their POC.

                      If they do know then they might consider making an Application for a Summary Judgment to strike out your Defence on the basis it has no merit (because you've only pleaded SB).

                      If you decide to make an offer now you must be very careful so it's not seen as admission of liability So head it Without Prejudice.

                        Ah ha! I'm glad I asked that question

                        The amount claimed might "look like" it relates to the loan only but you need to do your own research. So send a Subject Access Request to HSBC to get the full history of the loan and the bank account overdraft.

                        The Transaction Log should show if they were amalgamated.

                        If you stopped your token payments in 2013 and the account was assigned to Arrow in 2014 (according to the POC) that may mean that Arrow has no knowledge of when your last payment was made since it wasn't to them. They'll probably need to contact the original creditor for the information which may give you time to amend your Defence to reflect compliance (or not) with your CCA Request.

                        You may be a bit behind the curve with this, but it's not over yet.
