havent been on here for a long time but here goes My father in law took a loan out in 1990 with consumer loan company ( now defuncked) for £50k interest only. the loan was fully repaid after 5 years and transfered onto another loan ( Repayment) which had a charge on his property. After quite a few years when the loan had gone down to about 10k I took the paperwork down to a solicitor who told me that although the loan agreement was not legal the fact that it was over 25k meant that he could not claim against C/ loans. He started to get calls from CEO asking if we wanted to make a small paymet to clear the dept. At this point I smelt a rat as I have never known a bank to except a lesser amount. Just as we were about to start sniffing as to why they were trying to do a deal Consumer loans then disappeared. Last year he got a letter from manchester building society saying they had taken over the loan and they wanted to arrange a payment plan. I took some advice verbally from a solicitor to say that they were probably time barred and that unless we acknoledged the dept they would not be able to claim. but that didnt get over the fact there was a charge on the property that needed lifting. three letters later the last one threatening legal action with a copy of an agreement dated 1990 and for 5 years makes me think A they dont have a legal agreement and are trying it on and hoping we are stupid enough to pay them. B dont realise that maybe we have a potential claim. The fact that they have sent this agreement says to me there is something fishy going on. Somepnes thoughts please.
