Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Did you receive a County Court claim to which you filed a defence please?
Yes I did, this was sent back to the court the same day I received the claim form
Ok - I assume when you sent it back, that is when nothing further was heard? When was this sent back roughly?
Yes that correct, I sent my reply to the court in September 2011 a few day after receiving the court papers
Ok - then you just need to write to the Legal Advisors
Deny the debt and say you filed a defence,
They can't issue new proceedings against you - this would be an abuse of process
If they want to try and pursue the claim they have to make an application to Court to revive the 2011 proceedings
But given their delay any application is likely to fail
Just write and say you dont owe it and you wont be paying given the existing proceedings
They can't issue new proceedings as this would be an abuse of process
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Thanks Alex, I think this is all OK but can you just advise me if they do try a peruse can I contact the court and object?
Yes there will be an application before the court and you can say why to the Judge their application ought not to be allowed
Does that help?
Thanks for your help
