    Have Lloyds responded to your SAR sent in February?

    That will tell you what information they have on file, so if the credit agreement isn't there then how will Cabot be able to get a copy to comply your CCA Request; and if there's insufficient information for Cabot to reconstitute the document then they will have a problem

    Can you re-quote the post which has the history of this debt with an update each time something new happens - it makes it easier to make suggestions as to your next step in context.

      Hi, long time no post! I had heard nothing from Cabot until this morning, a letter to say they had looked into my request and as they are unable to provide any information have now closed this account and removed the default from my file, they wont contact me again on this matter - succus I guess?
      I did get a response too from Lloyds on my SAR request, the information only went upto August 2006, there seems to be no record of this account pre this date, so perhaps nobody has any information when it was opened.

      thank you for al your help

          That is great news and shows to everyone that overdrafts are covered by the CCA, contrary to what some DCAs and banks try to tell you.

            Indeed


            Jo has posted about a recent successful Appeal on this very issue >

            The claim against our clients in this case was for monies owing under a personal Current Account Overdraft. We lost at first instance before a District Judge in Peterborough County Court and appealed the decision before HHJ Walden-Smith sitting at Cambridge County Court.

            The Appeal was successful yesterday. This is an important case because it confirms that consumers using the unenforceability provisions of the Consumer Credit Act 1974 can successfully defend claims for personal Current Account Overdrafts in court. In this instant case the Appeal court found the personal Current Account Overdraft agreement to be unenforceable pursuant to the Consumer Credit Act because of lack of evidence of compliance with the requirements of the OFT determination.

            It was also accepted that Creditors must comply with S 78 Consumer Credit Act 1974 requests relating to personal Current Account Overdrafts, not just credit cards and loans. In this case the Appeal court did find that MFS Portfolio Ltd had complied with the S 78 Consumer Credit Act request. If they hadn’t complied with the statutory request then the personal Current Account Overdraft would have been unenforceable pursuant to s.78 (6) (a) Consumer Credit Act , which is contrary to the position creditors normally take.

            The court also positively approved of the principle established in a European case ruling we put before the court that it is for the creditor to prove statutory compliance. The court did not appeove of the District Judge’s earlier decision in the lower court that our client not recalling something somehow reversed the burden of proof onto our clients and away from the Claimant.

            The appeal court also found that MFS Portfolio Ltd had not proved the Assignment to it from the original creditor.

            We were not successful on the MFS Portfolio Ltd’s lack of FCA Authorisation point. For obvious reasons, having won the actual appeal for our Clients, this won’t be appealed further by our Clients - however this decision is not a binding decision on other courts as HHJ Walden-Smith was sitting as a Circuit Judge and not as a High Court Judge. On this same point, we are currently waiting for reserved judgment, in a different appeal case at Chester County Court, to be handed down.
