DLA - I & Egreenspun.com : LUSENET : Repossession : One Thread
I have written to this site before, and have found it so reassuring. Could someone please help with some advice in what to do next? I have been writing to DLA for over a year, letters going back & forth - the usual threats of court. Back in Sep 00, I did send my I & E to them, ( I had not found this site then). I have asked & asked for all the documents I require, but still nothing, so in my last letter I quoted the CPR to them, and that I have a right to all documents I have requested. They completely ignored my request (yet again) and have asked for my I & E form saying they will not tolerate any further delay.
So if I say I sent it last Sep 00 they will ask for a copy,and say they did not receive it then. But if I did not send it, how come its taken them over a year to ask for it. If I ignore it they will say I am ignoring their comments.
Please advise, I am so confused

You need a simple reply letter:
Further to your letter of the xth month.
I have reviewed the contents of your form with my legal advisors. My understanding is that you have no legal right to this information and on this basis I am declining to complete your form. If your client believes they are entitled to this information, you should write further, stating your reasons.
By contrast I note that my requests for information pertaining to the claim your client is pursuing - which I am legally entitled to - remain unanswered. Specifically I draw your attention to my letters of the a,b,c,d,e, [list them all here]. I would welcome either the information being supplied, or in its continued absence the courtesy of an explanation for this delay.
yrs etc. ------------------------
If you want the information you should sarn them for it; otherwise always be polite but firm; just like they do, keep singing the same tune.

I gather you sent in the I&E before being aware of your legal rights. Did you think in any way that you *had* to return that I&E form, because of the way in which the lender phrased its request or demand? This is a potential scandal in the making, I reckon, IMHO.
