  1. Hello All I have loans with various providers. I appointed a debt management company sometime ago to freeze the interest rates and I have been paying reduced monthly repayment to the lenders. Most of my loans have now been sold on to third parties. A couple of these companies have contacted me offering to write-off up to 40% if I agree to make an immediaye payment of 60% of the loan. While this is generous I can't help but think these companies will make trmendous returns from the loans because they have been sold to them for a lot less than they are worth. I would like to know if there is anyway I can obtain information of how much the loans were sold to the third parties. Is there anyway I can find this out?
  2. Hi all My first time here - please be gentle with me. I was made bankrupt over three years ago, and that is all now resolved. Outstanding is a business loan, secured against my house. I had heard nothing from the bank for over three years, until recently. I was told at a meeting three/four years ago that they were freezing interest on the loan, but their current chasing of the money DOES include ongoing interest over the last three years. Anyway. I do not have a regular income. I would like to keep my house if possible. Someone I know MAY be able to provide some funds for me. However, those funds are limited. The bank want a total of over £60,000 (made up of the amount which was outstanding [it had been a bigger loan, which was being paid until the bankruptcy], plus around £10,000 interest). The person who may be able to provide me with funds would have to mortgage an asset. Naturally, I would prefer for them not to have to seek any amount higher than is necessary - not just for their sake but because ultimately I will have to pay it back (though not in the foreseeable future). So. Although I recognise that the bank has a RIGHT to seek the full amount, I am under the impression that they would consider an offer of a lower amount, just to get it settled, and so they don't then have to evict me and take on the house and all its attendant issues in trying to get it sold. Does anyone have any knowledge or experience of how low such an offer might be, and still be accepted? Is it feasible that they might take an offer as low as, say, £10,000? Or would it have to be, say £30,000 even to be considered? How low might they go? I am not trying to "get away" with something. But equally - and naturally - in the circumstances, it would be very helpful to my getting back on my feet (there are other issues involved) if I don't have to pay any more than the lowest amount the Bank might be willing to accept. Anyone who can give me a "feel" for a figure to offer, which would be treated seriously, but not be more than absolutely necessary, would earn my grateful thanks. NotGivingUp
