  • Lowell Solicitors - Notice of pending legal action

    Hi all. I've received an LBA from Lowell Solicitors on behalf of Lowell Portfolio regarding a 300 credit card debt. Shall I use the LBA reply form to request proof of liability?

    I'm assuming I can check SECTION 1 BOX C (I don't know whether I owe the debt) and SECTION 4 BOX I (I need more documents or information)?

    Also I'm on the lowest Universal Credit for the next few months.. if I need to offer repayment is there a chance they will not accept my low offer and take me to court anyway or will they counter offer?

    Thanks for reading any help is much appreciated.

    I'm having trouble fitting in all the required documents on BOX I, Should I request more or less than the examples given?

          Reading between the lines of what you have written it would appear you have recieved a letter before action together with a pre-action protocol for debt claims. Which the courts require are sent to a debtor and allowing you thirty days before they can proceed to issue a county court summons and particulars of claim. This is to give you every opportinity to admit / dispute or seek advice about the debt . It's in no ones interest to take you to court and they are asking you to talk to them. I suggest you do just that. They know they can't get blood out of a stone so communication is the key. I think you will find they are firm but fair. They will only normally take you to court if you ignore them.
