Hi, Thank you for your question and welcome. My name is ***** ***** I will assist you. What I suggest you do is acknowledge receipt of the proceedings to extend the time period for filing a defence if you have not already done so. Write to the creditor and say to them that they have a case of mistaken identity.
If they do not withdraw the proceedings immediately you will seek to apply to have their claim struck out under Civil Procedure Rule 3.4 and seek to hold them accountable for the cost of doing so. I would recommend that you get a local solicitor to write to them for you as they will probably be a bit quicker if they know you are being advised. Also you should be able to recover your costs of doing so from them. I look forward to hearing from you.
Kind regards AJ
HI, Thank you. Can you confirm, have you acknowledge receipt of the claim? Normally when you do this, it extends the period for filing a defence?
