I’d really appreciate some advice on this matter. Briefly – a debt has been transferred to a debt collection solicitor and the outstanding amount has suspiciously skyrocketed. I’ve been paying off a long-standing debt to a firm of solicitors/debt collectors called HL Interactive. They were managing this debt on behalf of Royal Bank of Scotland, though the joint mortgage was originally taken out in 1990 and I have none of the original documentation, and cannot even remember the name of the lender (it was a French name, taken out through Prudential). Last year the balance on this account, which I have never disputed, was approximately £6,000. I have a letter from HL dated June 2013 confirming this. I have been making payments to HL for years via direct debit and have had no dispute or hassle from them. Last week I received two letters in the same envelope. One is from RBS saying that management of this debt has now been transferred to a firm called drydensfairfax, to whom all queries should now be directed. They enclosed a letter from drydensfairfax themselves, and this is the one that worries me. According to them, I owe over £16,000. While I have never denied the debt, I do not know where this amount has come from and what powers they have. I am certainly not going to phone them at this stage, especially since I was brought to these forums by googling their name. Is it possible that there is small print somewhere that says my debt (£6000 or so in 2013) can now be inflated to £16,000+ and that I have to pay it? Should I now engage the services of a solicitor? Any advice is welcome.
hi there, my husband went bankrupt in April 2007 and was discharged in April of 2008, he has only tried once get any sort of finance product since going bankrupt (this was last week for a phone contract, it was declined) and recently signed up to creditexpert to keep a track of things, on signing up he found a few things regarding his ex wife though they have not affected his rating and he has since removed her from his associations, his score is 970 out of 1000 , though this seems to make little difference to his ability to gain credit, tonight he signed up to noddle, and found on there his score was 1 out of 5 (so poor!) and again found his ex wife was still listed as a financial association (as was his mother going back to car finance joint agreement in 2003), He has emailed asking for his Ex wife to be removed, my question is why can the credit checking firms have such different views of his finances?? we have also found that he had some loans and finance that were paid off before going bankrupt with 31%apr and ppi that were looking into now, anyone dealt with renault finance before?? and / or beneficial finance? thank you
Hi there, i hope someone can help me. We moved here over a year ago and there was no gas meter. we had one put in and I have been giving readings online regularly. Over the past 6 months our bills have crept up and up butnothing that we thought wouldnt even out int he summer. Today i gave a reading to find that we now owe over £800!! Februarys reading was 2554, todays was 3833. We are paying £65.00 per month by direct debit which is now clearly nowhere near enough! We have gas central heating- we had a brand new boiler fitted in September last year and we have a gas cooker. This seems terribly high. Does this sound about right? We are with Southern Electric and its not an imperial meter. Thanks in advance.
