        Responding to PM.

        The Limitations Act 1980 " 6 year clock" stops on the date a CC claim issued.
        Rather than wait for a default judgement think is there anything you can defend the claim on?
        What is the start date?

        What is the default date? Important!!!

                This is an odd bit to put in a claim ''a default notice has been served and complied with.'' Surely if a default notice had been complied with payment would have been made to bring the account up to date thus no default. Odd. lol.

                  Re: Court Claim - Lowell / Vanquis - 15-1-2015

                  I have called them (BW Legal) but to no avail. I let a cci go on my account in 06 under default as we moved and British Gas got me for 39! I wold like to go through the process as I was terrified when the claim form arrived yesterday. (saturday). IS the likelihood in anywise I would get a judgement, and should i still send off the AOS, CCA/CPR requests?..bearingin mind I haven idea about payments as since have swapped banks but I know I couldn't afford to pay it off and certainly cant afford much as I dont ear, so inthrone my wife would be paying it off. Just wondered on my course of action.

                  I have already started compiling a defence, I will post up later, been a bit worried about this and my credit was shot, and was slowly and surely getting there, only thing i have is mortgage (up to date) and mobbed phone contract (vodafone) since 2010 up to date. no loans etc...

                  Obviously If a default notice had been issued i would tried to comet some arrangement rather than let it go to this stage, They have forced my hand so I intend to defend it..

                  Few things, CPR request goes to the solicitors (BWLegal) recorded? (will be Posted tomorrow)
                  CCA to Lowell recorded (with 1 fee) (will be posted tomorrow)
                  AoS Recorded to Nottingham Court? (posted tomorrow to Nottingham court address, 4th floor St Katharines street etc..)
                  Need help with dates for defence etc..Claim was issued 15th Jan 2015 (arrived Saturday, yesterday)
                  Just making sure I admiring everything correctly.

                      You know what I don't think they did - weird.

                      beaconsman - get the claim acknowledged, and the CCA and CPR letters sent off. We have a way to go before we need to make a decision on a defence. There's definitely issues here, and I haven't seen all that many credit agreements from Vanquis come back. Your defence isn't due in until 33 days from the date printed on the claim form as issue date ( 15th Jan I believe) so you have till Tuesday, February 17, 2015

                          Start date/ default date? May be very important.

                              Yes recorded is a good idea, and sign the letters. Remember the 1 postal order in the CCA letter.

                              You could do the AoS online at moneyclaimonline, save you a stamp.
