    NPower - Lowells

    I received a county court claim on Friday from Lowells.

    History - Npower account was closed about 3 years ago. Their final bill was wrong, so i never paid it as i was in dispute with them. Refusing to listen, they then sold my 'debt' to the collection agency Lowells who are now taking me to court.

    I have filled in the AOS, do now have 28 days to get my defence together.

    I have seen some defence templates on this forum, and a link has taken ne here.

    Should I use the adapted template in the MCOL onlibe form? Which is my bext step. Or should i wait until it goes to court? But just put a brief defence in the online MCOL.

    Happy to post more details as required.

    Or is notification from the Mediator
    Probably the Mediator. Give the Court a call.

    Just checked MCOL, and the court have received a settled notification from Overdales. They still have not sent the invoice. And I haven't paid?

    Is this normal?
    Yes, everything is slow.

    No, they are just slow. Set a 'deadline', then send them a chase letter.

    Overdales have not sent all the requested documents.
    Account was disputed with Npower at the time. Npower ignored me, when stated that the amount sought was incorrect.

    Is this correct?

    Thank you
    Yes, that's fine.

    I would tick 'yes' for mediation, but state that they haven't sent the requested documents.

    Do I put in the DQ what was previously posted in the letter to Overdales?

    I'm assume that I don't want mediation as well.

    Thank you
    No, you answer the questions. If you have received all the requested documentation, then you can say 'yes' to mediation.

    You send a copy to the Court and a copy to Lowell's.

    Here's a guide, that might help - https://www.lawble.co.uk/directions-questionnaire/
