Alex Watts : When did you last make a payment or acknowledge the debt please?
The debt is subject to a monthly payment plan
Alex Watts : It's and news then,
Alex Watts : The clock starts running from the last payment.
Alex Watts : So if you last paid in 2000 and made no more payments it would be time barred.
Alex Watts : But as soon as you make a payment the 6 year clock starts ticking again
Alex Watts : Therefore sadly as you paid last month it is not time barred.
Alex Watts : I am sorry if this is not the answer you want and certainly not the one I want to give you, but I have a duty to be honest
Alex Watts : Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
So this means that although the debt was originally 'defaulted' so long ago, they are still able to issue legal proceedings should they choose to do so because I have been paying?
Alex Watts : They could, but you could argue the costs should not be awarded if you have been paying by agreement.
Alex Watts : But they could issue proceedings yes.
Alex Watts : Can I clarify anything else?
