  • County Court Claim Form Received 😕

    Evening all, just looking for some advice , please be nice as I have never had a claim before and is all new to me.

    Today I came home to a claim form from county court business center Northampton regarding an unpaid JD Williams debt of 385.62. with court fees etc 470.62.

    Now I have submitted a complaint of irresponsible lending to the Ombudsman regarding this debt and unfortunately after nearly 3 months has not been looked at as I rang them the other day,

    Now my question is shall I make part payment of this debt (all the money I currently have) and wait for the outcome from the ombudsman, or should I attach my complaint in my defence to the county court? Or would it not be taken into consideration?

    I really don't no what to do please help

          regardless of your 2nd comment follow above, as Ombudsman is just an issue but court is serious at this stage,

            Many thanks for your reply, I do apologise but I forgot to add the original debt is JD Williams but it is Restons solicitors who have started the court proceedings, could I ask what or why I need to get the CCA request?
            i do apologise for my lack of knowledge to this.

                read around the site you will get the idea etc CCA is to see if enforceable or unenforceable under rule, you need to give a lot of info here such as date taken out/last payment/default date

                    Right claim acknowledged as stated above and both requests sent to original creditor and solicitors
                    what's next? Am I just waiting for replies now?

                      For now, but keep an eye on the date your defence is due by ( 33 days from the issue date printed on the form) as that needs to be filed on time unless the claimant comes back and specifically agrees to an extension under CPR 15

                      We may not win by protesting, but if we don't protest we will lose. If we stand up to them, there is always a chance we will win.
