Overdales Solicitors- Not sure what it correlates to?

Hi all,

Bit of a strange one but I have received a letter from Overdales Solicitors relating to a CCJ on 13-04-2018

I have no knowledge of a CCJ against me and have had no correspondence prior to this. I did move out a year before that date from my old property so I am assuming it is something related to that.

At the time I was having a dispute with my energy company as they had added the debt of a previous tenant to our bill. Its the only thing I can think it could possibly be but the complaint correspondence was to my new address.

I am wondering two things:

Firstly how do I get details of what this relates to?
Secondly, do I respond to them?

Thanks for any assistance in advance

    There's a prove-it in the stickies.

    I'd send them that and make them do the work of telling you what it is.

    If they are claiming this is a ccj then they need to also give you the name of the court and the court reference so you can check it with them.

    These things often turn out to be parking fines but it could be anything

    Overdales are the legal arm of Lowell`s, a seasoned debt purchasing company.

    This may well be the energy debt you mention, but as fatbelly says, it could be anything.
