  1. Hi all , hope somebody could advise me. Due to reduced income and arrears on rent and council tax I have set up a self adminastrated debt managment plan.Most of my creditors are payday loan company's who have accepted month payments , with balances and interest being frozen. But one of my loans is from a sub prime lender for £300 repayable at £49 a month for 12months. I made a couple of payments before seting up my dmp. The loan company passed to debt to what I think is the in house debt collection - Chantry -. They phoned me I have offered £25 a month and offered an Income and Expediure s
  2. I have an income expediture form which I designed and sent to all my payday loan company's when sorting out a payment plans. A few points to remember with I/E forms are 1) They don't have to be given to creditors despite what they may tell you.Only a court can request an I/E form.But if there's nothing to hide why not? 2) Include only your income / expediture and YOUR contrubution to household bills.The creditors don't have a right to know the ins and outs of the rest of family members 3) As said before include everything you can..including birthdays/christmas. If you want a copy of my for
  3. My experience is this hope it helps. I had 8 payday loans but wanted , and needed, to get out of the trap of paying off then reborrowing. I phoned bank up and explained I had lost my debit card whilst out in town so they cancelled the card and sent a brand new one with 16 new numbers. A couple of days laster phoned bank and asked to have a new bank account along side exsisitng account .The reason I said was to pay direct debits from each month. I went to my employer and had wages paid into new bank account- so I knew money was sagfe.At which point started to default on loans. I was i
  4. How did this pan out after you defaulted in regards to the DMP.Did the pdloan companies accept CCCS payment proposals?
  5. Lenders tend to vary. They all have to give a 'cooling off period' of 14days - Some will let you pay back interest free within the 14 days ,others will charge an 'admin fee' which is usally, surprise surprise ,the same as the interest charge. But It is a good tool to use if you only need to borrow for a week or so , but read t/c's before applying.
  6. Hi all an update. Defaulted a week or so ago. To be honest a pleasent company to deal with and all done by email. They did add 20% on the outstanding balance but agreed not to add any further charges or interest as long as I stuck to the repayment plan..which I will... over the next 10months, knowing the balance is reducing. Also paying by faster payments each month not debit card. Alf
  7. Thanks for the update. I was thinking I need to get out of the 'trap' with DCloans. Did you at any point offer a payment arrangement or did they ignore and take you to court? -and- Did you write to them before defaulting explaining the sitution.I ask this as some lenders seem more likely to set up a payment arrangement if you contact them before you default and keep in contact? Thanks
  8. Thankyou for your advice. -The CTC we get now is based on last years income of £20700 but by April 2010 I would of earned £24700.Looking at the HMRC website it states : If the customer’s original claim is continuing and the customer is getting only the family element of Child Tax Credit we will take 100%, so the customer will receive nothing until the overpayment is repaid. So to my way of thinking in April when they ask what I earned last year , yes an award will be given but an overpayment would of occured. So they wont pay us anything until the the amount of potiential payments co
  9. Hi all Hope someone can help me with this one... It looks like we will of been overpaid CTC by about £2000 by April10, due to me dong overtime at work.We have 4 children as my understanding is that we wount get any money from CTC until the overpayment is paid back.Currently getting around £150 per week. This means the new award notice will state £0.00 to be paid weekly. At the moment we dont claim housing benefit ,but due to the changes on 2nd November seems that we may be due £30ish a week as child benefit is now disregarded. My question is now when we apply for HB and w
  10. In reply to Robjam they only have debit card details.NO Cheques. They are also members of CCA which hopefully means they will stick to there guidelines for defaultees. Willing to pay back but over few months Plumfairy when did you default?-Just so I can get a time scale

  12. I Highlighed that this may happen on sunday morning but the site team on this site removed my thread without warning ! All Fortress Group UK websites say this in there terms: 18. If you owe Fortress Group (UK) Ltd money through any of its brands or subsidiaries you authorise us to use the debit card details supplied in this application to recover those monies as your relationship is with Fortress Group (UK) Ltd and not just an individual brand. We do not have to notify you that we have, or intend to, do this. They also trade under these names: 1 Month Loan Fortress Securities Ma
  13. I think that a valid reason for wanting a payment plan would be " I want to get out of this Payday Loan Trap"..if this wasnt accepted let the Judge look into it! That way Payday loans maybe on the way to be outlawed in the uk,like Canada and some states in the US. IMHO
