Administration of Justice Act 1970 forbids creditors to falsely pretending to be officially authorised to collect payment

Administration of Justice Act 1970 forbids creditors to falsely pretending to be officially authorised to collect payment

Post by Kestrel on Sat Oct 13, 2018 1:29 pm

It is a criminal offence to operate without a licence, i.e. unregulated, from what I take from the links below, I would take it that any unregulated creditor that operates without a licence has no legal standing in court as they are committing a criminal offence. In so far they cannot be the 'claimant'.

https://www.stepchange.org/debt-info/your-rights/consumer-credit-act.aspx
https://www.nibusinessinfo.co.uk/content/how-apply-consumer-credit-licence

Also appears that Administration of Justice Act 1970 applies

The Administration of Justice Act 1970
Section 40[2] includes a number of provisions forbidding creditors such as debt collection agencies from harassing debtors, including:
Excessive demands for payment
Falsely claiming that criminal proceedings will follow after failing to pay a debt
Falsely pretending to be officially authorised to collect payment
Producing false documents claiming to have some official status that they do not have

https://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/1970/31/section/40

I believe the above would be helpful in court should a creditor be using a third party when the unauthorised creditor themselves are the claimant.

I posted elsewhere on here:
http://goodf.forumotion.com/t3000p25-debt-purchaser-using-dca-to-initiate-court-proceedings-but-purchaser-without-permissions-is-on-court-papers
But believe it is worthy of it's own post should anyone be searching for this.

Thanks. In the first link it says:

'In some cases, regulated creditors are limited in the type of court action they can take. For example, in England and Wales a regulated creditor can’t use High Court enforcement officers to collect an unpaid County Court judgment.'

Does this mean they can't take the case to the High Court?

If a civil debt is no more than £25,000 (double check the figure though) they cannot use High Court useful idiots.
