  • *DISCONTINUED* !!! Lowell Portfolio 1 Ltd v Jojo13

    I have received a Claim Form from Northampton County Court Business Centre dated 17th May 2016. I received this on 27th May 2016 as I have been away and I have completed the ‘Acknowledgement of Service’ online at moneyclaim.gov.uk today, 30th May 2016.

    The Particulars of Claim are;
    The Claimant’s Claim is for the sum of £xx.xx being monies due from the Defendant to the Claimant under a Home Shopping agreement regulated by the Consumer Credit Act 1974 between the Defendant and Shop Direct Finance Company Limited under account reference 8xxxxxxx and assigned to the Claimant on 09/09/2011 notice of which has been given to the Defendant.
    The Defendant failed to maintain the contractual payment under the terms of the agreement and a default notice has been served and not complied with.
    The Claim also includes statutory interest pursuant to section 69 of the County Courts Act 1984 at a rate of 8.00% per annum (a daily rate of £0.11 from the date of assignment of the agreement to 08/09/2012 being an amount of £xx.xx.
    The approximate amount of the claim is £700 including Court Fee and Legal representative’s costs.

    I have got letters ready to send by recorded delivery tomorrow;
    To the Claimant - CCA request
    To the Claimants Solicitor – copy of CCA request and CPR request

    I do not know what this claim relates to and therefore am sure that I have not made any payments at anytime to either Shop Direct or Lowell Portfolio.

    Could anyone please advise me of what I need to do next as I am a bit more than baffled!

    Thanks for reading
    Jo

        Check paras 4 and 6.

        I was going to put whether you have ever purchased from a shop direct group catalogue, but I don't know, so if you honestly believe you haven't bought anything on credit from one of their trading styles, then put that in.

                You can either submit via MCOL if you used that to acknowledge the claim, or post it with the N9B form in the claim pack, or ( easiest) you can email it to ccbcdefendants@hmcts.gsi.gov.uk - put subject as DEFENCE - Claim XXXX - Lowell Portfolio 1 v JOJO13 - and attached the defence as a PDF if possible ( electronically sign it)

                  Lowell v Jojo13 - please help

                  Hi

                  I have received these two documents from Lowell after requesting credit agreement and default notice. They both do have my details on but no detail about the actual debt or copy of my signature. I have received a court date and don't know what steps to take next. Can anyone please help advise me? I don't particularly want to go to court as I have so much going on at the moment and am feeling mentally fragile. Do I ring these people and ask them what the debt is for? I would be grateful of any help with this

                  Thanks

                              Hello JoJo,

                              While we wait to see the documents please give what information you do have on the alleged debt.

                              What is the name of the creditor on the agreement you have received?

                              It may also help if you check your credit reference files to see what data is held on this, you can check Noddle Free Online.

                              Don't stress over Lowell's bully boy tactics they use a lot of " may & might in their template letters.

                              There's loads of experience and help here on LB for you.

                              Has Lowell made any threats of legal action?
                              The advice I give and draft letters provided are drawn from personal experience and career training and are given freely and without liability.

                              Please make your own decisions with care and if necessary seek qualified legal advice. I will not advise by private message. If you'd like me to look at your post please tag me in your post by typing @nemesis45;.

                              We now feature a number of specialist consumer credit debt solicitors on our sister site, JustBeagle.com
                              If your case is over £10,000 or particularly complex it may be worth a chat with a solicitor, often they will be able to help on a fixed fee or CFA (no win, no fee) basis.
