which address do you mean --I left the UAE in 2000
I am currently living in Holland and working in Russia
I VISTS EVERY FEW MONTHS TO COLLECT MAIL AND JUST TO MAKE SURE THE HOUS IS OK AS I HAVE A TENANT RESIDENT
PRESUME IT WAS GOVERNED BY UAE LAW AS IT WAS A UAE C C -- AND WITH A UAE BANK
IT IS 240K DIRHAMS
Whats that in £?
WHICH HAS ACCUMULATED OVER THE LAST 15 YEARS !!!! IN TYPICAL CREDIT CARD RATES --ITS AROUND 40K STERLING
I would amend your letter to say:
1) You do not admit the debt
2) You want a copy of the signed agreement
3) You want a full statement of the account
4) You want to know their legal basis of a claim in the UK
5) You want to know the basis of their claim given that under UK law it would be statute barred
Unless the agreement says it is governed by UK law then ordinarily it can not be enforced. There is no agreement between the countries that allows to be enforced
OK --WELL I HAVE NOT SIENT THE LETTER THAT I HAVE ATTACHED AS YET --I WILL AMEMND ACCORDINGLY
In the UK debts are time barred after 6 years of last payment or admitting you owe the debt
