Debt Collection Assignment Agreement

9 Apr

Third-party debtors are subject to the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA). The FDCPA, a federal law overseen by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), limits the means and methods by which third-party debtors can contact, the time of day they can contact and the frequency with which they can call debtors. “The burden of proof of an assignment rests with the party asserting the rights to it. In an action against an assignee to enforce a surrendered right, the evidence must not only be sufficient to establish the fact of the assignment in that fact, but require the adequacy of the adequacy between the evidence of the assignment is clear and positive to protect a debtor from another right of the principal obligated. (Cockerell v. Title Insurance – Trust Co., (1954) 42 Cal.2d 284, 292). “The assignment must describe the purpose of the transfer with sufficient specificity to identify the rights awarded.” (Mission Valley East, Inc. v. County of Kern, 1981) 120 Cal.App.3d 89, 96). So how does the party understand the rights transferred to a recovery action? They must present the signed transfer agreements, from the original creditor to the current owner of the debt, and find a way to prove those documents. If the buyer can`t do it, they`ll lose. “Without the correct allegations of the written authority, agency or assignment, a non-owner plaintiff can take legal action. Without standing up, there is no real or justified controversy, and the courts do not have such cases. (3 Witkin Cal.

3rd edition 1985, action 44 PP. 70-72; Allen v. Wright ( (1984) 468 U.S. 737). The debtor must be informed when a debt is transferred to a third party in order to know to whom to make payments and where to send it. If the debtor sends payments to the former creditor after the debt has been transferred, it is likely that the payments will not be accepted. This could result in the debtor`s involuntary insolvency. The main problem with this process is both legal and practical. I`ll start with the practical problem. When a debt is transferred from one party to another, there is a document signed by both parties that certifies the transfer of rights. Once this has been done, the Zendegeber or the party selling the debt no longer wants to deal with this assigned debt.
