  1. Hi, I had an agreement with MBNA where they would hold all interest, as long as I paid the debt off within 10 years. The amount owing was divided up in 120 months (10 years). However, in the mean time, they have decided to sell the debt, at the same time as our financial situation has changed. The monthly payments are now less. They write to inform me that I am in arrears. The DCA have said the following, is this right does anyone know?? The payment was set by MBNA, based upon, I assume a previous Income and Expenditure form at the point of being 'charged off' which means no further interest is applied to your account but it does mean that this is your 'normal monthly payment'. This can not be amended now as it was sold on this way. It is also less than the 5% normally applied to credit card accounts. And so, we are happy to accept your offer of payment but as it is does not meet your contractual payment the arrears will continue to accrue. We have a legal obligation to reflect accurate data to the Credit Reference Agencies, which also includes arrangements, missed payments and arrears and so your data entry at the credit reference agency will be updated with this information.
  2. Hi I have finally dug out all 3 of my loan agreements for WFS. I did issue a PPI refund request back in 2007 but they point blank refused and due to health reasons i hadn't the energy to pursue them. I have recently had success with black horse and wondered how i proceed with Welcome, i have already contacted the FSCS regarding the 2 most recent loans but looking at the paperwork they were both re-finances of the first and that one was pre 2005. Can anyone advise? the net searches have suggested i call them but im not sure about that - they were pretty awful to deal with back then Huge thanks Maudy x
  3. Hi My wife has received a Pre-Action Protocol for Debt Claims from Drydensfairfax, for an old debt from 1998 at an old address. Arrow recently started sending letters to our new address and continued despite being returned as not known at address. They now appear to be instigating court proceedings. Unfortunately I expect this is not outside the statute of limitations as I have been paying £1 per month by standing order since she defaulted in around 2000/2001 (from my account not hers). Whilst she is working, she is not in a position to pay it off as she is currently just managing to maintain her current credit. Naturally we do not want a CCJ, ideally she is hoping to consolidate her current debt soon to help manage and prevent her credit status worsening. I would really appreciate any advise you could offer, in particular could I ask: - should I send the suggested CPR 31.14 request (as this seems to mention a specific court that has not yet been advised)? - should I send the CCA request to Dydyenfairfax or Arrow? - I have seen a Debt Prove it letter, would this be appropriate? Also, I have listed below the details as suggested: Name of the Claimant ? Drydensfairfax Solicitors/Arrow Global Guernsey Ltd Date of issue – 04/02/2019 Date to acknowledge) - 09/03/2019 - We are instructed by our client, Arrow Global Guernsey Limited, in relation to the above debt. If you do not provide proposals to repay this debt, or respond as otherwise detailed in this letter and it's attachments, legal proceedings may be issued against you in the county court. If such proceedings do become necessary, further costs will be incurred for which you may be liable. The proceedings may then result in a county court judgement being entered against you which will be registered a the credit reference agencies and is therefore likely to affect your ability to obtain credit in the future. Full details of the debt are set out below: The amount owed is £702 and no charges/interest are being added at this stage A statement of account is attached ---(an account summary showing only start balance (£823), total debits (£17), total credits (£138) current balance (£702)--- The agreement this debt relates to was entered into between you and Shop Direct (Carval) on xx/xx/1998 and assigned to Arrow Global Guernsey Limited on xx/xx/2011. A copy of the agreement can be requested using the reply form. ---(should I do this also?---- Have you received prior notice of a claim being issued pursuant to paragraph 3 of the PAPDC (Pre Action Protocol) ? Don't know Have you changed your address since the time at which the debt referred to in the claim was allegedly incurred? Yes Did you inform the claimant of your change of address? No What is the total value of the claim? 702 Is the claim for - catalogue When did you enter into the original agreement before or after April 2007 ? before, it was 1998. Is the debt showing on your credit reference files (Experian/Equifax /Etc...) ? Not on my copy, I don't know if deeper searches with linked addresses are any different, credit score is low but I thought this was due to current level of debts Has the claim been issued by the original creditor or was the account assigned and it is the Debt purchaser who has issued the claim. Debt purchaser, Arrow Were you aware the account had been assigned – did you receive a Notice of Assignment? probably but to a previous debt purchaser, it was back in 2011 when Arrow took over but we moved house in 2008 Did you receive a Default Notice from the original creditor? Yes, around 2000/2001 Have you been receiving statutory notices headed “Notice of Default sums” – at least once a year ? Don't know, possibly, but moved house in 2008 and only recently started receiving letters to new address Why did you cease payments? Husband has maintained £1 per month standing order throughout, still paying unless their bank payment details have changed What was the date of your last payment? Feb 2019 unless their bank payment details have changed Was there a dispute with the original creditor that remains unresolved? No, due to credit difficulties Did you communicate any financial problems to the original creditor and make any attempt to enter into a debt management plan? Yes and Yes Many thanks again in anticipation of any advice you can offer.
  4. Hi there, firstly apologies if this is in the wrong section. Also I thought I'd keep things quite general so that this might help more people. 1) If I have a contract dispute (money claim) with a supplier and have given them a letter before action (LBA) which they have replied to (I am not satisfied with their answer). Do I still have to waste time going backwards and forwards with them until they stop replying or can I just start the proceedings and issue an N1? 2) In their response to my LBA they had provided some evidence (SMS) which I wish to respond to by providing the whole SMS thread (I didn't think it was necessary at the time of issuing the LBA). Do I have to provide all evidence in which I intend to rely on before sending N1 or can I send it along with the N1? It's been a while since I did a money claim and even though I have been successful doing LBA then N! with full docs (regardless of their negative response) I read conflicting things on the internet that would suggest things have changed a bit.
  5. Good Morning, I'm seeking some advice/direction from you for my mother following my fathers death in 2014. Her mortgage started in 2002 and was called a Natwest Foundations Mortgage, it was effectively an arranged credit line that allowed you to borrow up to the value of the property and pay off extra amounts when suited. Natwest withdrew this product and started locking peoples money in, there was widespread complaint online about this. At this time from research, many customers moved to other products offered by the bank however my father insisted he was staying on the product. Still to this day that mortgage is in place, it reached the 14 year term in 2015 and has rolled on a SVR extension for 3.5 years... I have drafted for my mother with her consent, the issues that she has with her mortgage. Some advice and direction would be greatly appreciated. Issue 1 - Natwest Payment Protector sold as Life Insurance with Mortgage Foundations Mortgage Account taken in 2002 – This was done 100% at home by an Natwest advisor called XXXXXX XXXXX. We have hand written letters that were included in the SAR that show this. Natwest say that they have no records to indicate he ever worked within the company. I feel this is crucial to my complaint as XXXXX XXXXX completed the mortgage with myself and husband at home and advised us on everything. We were advised we had to take a life insurance product called ‘Natwest Payment Protector’ in order for the mortgage to go ahead. From the beginning of the mortgage up until my husband’s death in July 2014, we were led to believe that the Natwest Payment Protector was Life Insurance on the house. It is proven that this is what we believed as when my husband had his first heart attack in May 2008, he contacted Natwest to try and freeze the account. At no point did he use the Natwest Payment Protector whilst sick, which is apparently what it was for! We both were led to believe this was Life Insurance. At this point, I am upset that Natwest did not inform us what this product actually did - If they had, it would have covered the payments whilst he was sick and also would have made us aware of the product they had mis-sold at a time when we could have done something about it. This has had a huge financial effect on myself. Natwest have produced after many letters to the bank, a document with my husbands signature agreeing to the costs and benefit of the NatWest Payment Protector… This was not signed by myself nor do I believe my husband signed this understanding what it was he was signing – I stress, the Natwest advisor forcibly made us take this product as part of the ‘deal’ and this product was ‘Life Insurance.’ Issue 2 - Failing to supply information under SAR My initial SAR request was handled carelessly and was to say the least, incomplete. It was missing huge amounts of information and the majority of what was sent was not legible. I complained about this and specifically requested it to be resent as well as information pertinent to the mortgage to be sent. Following this second request – there is still clearly information missing. Issue 3 - The original mortgage agreement/contract and terms and conditions Despite two subject access requests being submitted a Natwest complaints handler has informed me that – quote ‘A further search has been completed by the Mortgage Operations Centre and they have been unable to locate a copy of your original mortgage offer’. I find this un-acceptable and ask on what grounds this mortgage is enforceable under the CCA between 2006 and 2016? Further to this, despite two subject access requests and specifically asking via letter to the Chief Exec’s office on more than one occasion Natwest have failed to supply the original ‘Terms & Conditions’ of the mortgage. Nor have I been supplied a reason as to why these are not available. In fact, since asking for this information shortly after my husband passed away in July 2014 I have not seen any paperwork produced by Natwest that form an ‘agreed mortgage contract’ nor an ‘agreed credit arrangement’. Issue 4 - Status of mortgage agreement during the years 2002 to 2018 leading to issues surrounding compliance of the CCA in 2006 and FCA Regulations at the ‘supposed’ end of term. My understanding from recent research is that this mortgage is a pre-2004 First Charge Mortgage that was unregulated when put in to place in 2002. 2002 – 2006 Between these years the mortgage should have complied with the CCA, however from research it seems like the £25,000 barrier stops this from being required… In the Natwest supplied SAR upon opening the loan, I find it very convenient that there is a column entitled CCA (Consumer Credit Act) – marked with ‘NO’. I would like this explained to me as the bank deemed this important information to record however I was never informed of a regulatory body nor law that would be/become important… Is this a fair relationship? 2006-2016 Between these years the CCA was amended significantly and as this loan is a pre-2004 first charge mortgage, from my understanding it was subject to compliance with the CCA between 30th March 2006 and 21st March 2016 when the mortgage becomes regulated by the FCA – see PS17/6. During this period, several compliance failings occurred however two of which I feel are significantly important: Failure to send NOSIA – At no point was a specified notice of sums in arrears sent, by trawling through statements I can see that this should have happened several times. The first of which took within the 2006 onwards period is May 2008. Failure to do this would make the agreement 'unenforceable' until notice is given. Failure to send Annual Statements – None sent. Failure to do this would make the agreement 'unenforceable' until notice is given. During this period of time, my husband had passed away and I was completely unaware that the bank had these obligations to me. Further to this, I made several complaints via telephone and in branch as I didn’t even have access to my mortgage account online. Furthermore – I still don’t have access to this online now! (August 2018) Issue 5 - Product Extension Concerns June 2015 – August 2018 (Taking into account FCA Regulations enforced on 21st March 2016) It is my understanding that the verbally agreed extensions following the ‘supposed’ end of term mortgage are subject to the rules and regulations of the FCA now. This loan extension and all monies paid on this ‘extension’ should have been a ‘Regulated Mortgage Contract’ and there should be certain paperwork in place, such as a Loan Contract, Terms & Conditions, Key Facts, Annual Statements etc. There have been serious failings by the bank to comply with FCA regulations during this period. ----------------------------------- Thank you for any advice and direction in advance.
  6. Had 250ltr of our hot water tank leak through the ceiling recently. There was a little damage there before (shower leaked a few years ago) but it was too much hassle to fix. Now the damage is much much worse. The insurance are paying for the flooring but are refusing to pay for the ceiling saying I've not experienced any financial loss because it was damaged already? Is this normal? Surely its like saying you can't have a new carpet if its wrecked because there was a fag burn on one corner?
  7. Hi all, Today my wife received rather thick envelope containing letters from Lowell and BW Legal, containg a reply form, which after looking about online seems like a new thing (pre action Protocol?). My wife hasnt heard anything about this debt in a very long time, plus we moved home last year so that possibly hasnt helped matters. The debt is for Vanquis Bank (Credit Card) and was defaulted on 31/10/2012 - no payments have been made since before this date and its approaching being statute barred. Whats the best way to proceed WITHOUT acknowledging the debt? Do I tick boxes D to dispute the debt and tick box I and ask for more information? If so what information? Should I also sent a normal CCA letter with the reply form? Do I now just deal with BW Legal seen as all this has come from them as Lowel say it has been sent BW Legal? Many thanks Martyn
  8. Hi all. Brief background to my delimma; Opened up a vanquis account back in mid 2013, kept on top of it for a few years until I went through an extremely difficult time, they increased my credit limit to £2000 around the same time and I blew the lot and stopped paying because I didn’t care about anything. It was then sold to Lowell’s solicitors I ignored the first letters until I received the pre action protocol letter. I responded to that asking them to prove it. Today they replied stating they were waiting for response from creditor and my account is on hold in meantime. Total debt is £2396. But I also noticed some of the information on this letter is wrong. The last payment date and the amount is incorrect and also the default date. I checked through my bank statements and they’re a month out with the payment date. They have my last payment as November for £70 odd, but my last transaction was in the October for £30 odd. Then the default is recorded in May the following year. I’m wondering if it’s worth letting it go to court if they seem to have wrong information. Would be really grateful for any information or advice anyone has. Many thanks.

  10. Hello everyone. I'm getting anxious about my currently deferred student loan and seeking some advice/guidance/reassurance, please. I have four mortgage style student loans from the early 90s and as I’ve beenbelow the threshold I have been deferring them; every year since I graduated. It’s all been pretty straight forward and deferment granted promptly. Last year’s deferment letter from Honours Student Loans(and maybe several before that) said, if memory serves, I was in breach of theloan T&Cs as I no longer have a direct debit in place. It must have ‘timedout’, as I’m sure there used to be one. As I’m now within a few years of my loan being written off I’m keen not to do anything that could be used against me by placing me in breach of the T&Cs and put me in arrears during my final few years. I’m winding myself up by reading the entire internet on whether the T&Cs actually state I must have an active direct debit inplace, even if I’m currently in deferment. So my questions is, when I receive my next deferment letter should I give them my bank account details, or even call them to provide them now, or shouldn’t I? On the subject of the deferment paperwork – have HSL changed it this year (2018)? Will my paperwork be different in 2019? If so, should I approach it differently? The next issue is difficult for me, as I think I may have been filling the deferment form out incorrectly. I haven’t been including Child Tax Credits as income as the advice I received at the time was that it didn’t count as taxable income and therefore didn’t need to be included on the form. But now I’m reading that I should have been declaring it? If so, then would your advice be to start putting it on the form from next year? The tax credits would place me close to, but I think still under, the threshold. As I haven’t been declaring child tax credits and probably should have been, would this be grounds for me to be regarded as in breach of the T&Cs and effect future deferment/write-off? If I should declare it, do I need to declare 100% or canI declare 50% as it’s in joint names with my wife and her income doesn’t count? Many thanks for your help.
  11. I have been living in my current flat for approximately 5 years. Firstly with a partner and recently by myself. During this whole time I have had a pre payment meter taking debt every time I top up for a previous tenant. Through my own laziness and stupidity I didn't pursue the issue. I tried to at first but couldn't figure out where to start and about a year or so ago the 'debt' being taken off was a negligible amount (approximately 50p-£1 for every £10 I topped up). However, recently the rate that the debt is added seemed to have escalated to £2-£3 per £10 topped up. I should have pursued this much sooner I realise this, but I would really like them to stop charging me for a debt that has never been mine and to recover some or all of the money that I have paid towards this debt that is not and never has been mine. Is anyone able to advise who I should contact and how I should go about this?
  12. Advice please I have received this letter, see pics, its a debt with marbles credit card which was then sold to cabot this year, now i have got this letter from Mortimer Clarke regarding potential court action if i do not respond in 30 days. ( i also have an aqua credit card and aqua loan which i have also not paid off they are sending me letters as well but not go to this stage yet and they are the same company as Marbles so i guess will be doing the same thing next. I cant afford to pay this and have been struggling. Long story short, my ex used to take my money and use my cards to gamble and pay for a drug habit i didn't know about i was subject to mental torture for an extended period of time, if i didnt let him do this he would threaten to tell my job lies to get me sacked which made me feel sick as i love my job and i am good at it, now he is finally out of my life i have a shed load of debts that will be chasing me like this one. What is the best thing for me to do. Thanks in advance.
  13. Dear members, I received 3 x CCJs last year to do with Private parking firms but every time came across them well on time with help of my credit score agency and decided to pay up in full within 1 month of judgement date. Just checked for any judgements for peace of mind by paying up for a report via https://www.rtlproduction.com/search.aspx and report says "Nothing Registered" Question is - I've been offered a job which needs an external company to carry on pre employment checks and one of the questions on the form is "Have you ever had civil proceedings taken against you by creditors e.g CCJ or IVA?, if yes please provide details." What is the right thing to do? Should I say No based on report I just ran? Or should I say yes and put a note explaining why did I get it (all comms sent to wrong address and claimant won by default) and that its all paid up in full? How do these agency check such record? thanks
  14. Hi - I've recently received three letters from Lowell headed 'Pre Legal Assessment' that goes on to say they are deciding whether to pass my account(s) to their legal team. Has anyone seen these before and should I do anything? I wasn't sure if I should send the Prove it letter or CCA request. They are for CCs and a store card. I have moved since the debts defaulted and they are around 5 years old. I have a scan of the letter with personal info obfuscated if anyone would like to take a look to make sure? I know the legislation for LBAs changed recently, so wasn't sure if they are allowed to send me a court claim next or it would be better to wait for an actual LBA. Thanks for any advice.
  15. New one this for me...a little help required?! My Wife has a TSB credit card, has had it 17 years no CCA at all. Have nt heard from them for over 6 months. Have sent Resolve Call, Moorcrofts and 2 others letters in the past asking for CCA AND Letters and they all give up and say they have passed it back to Tsb. Today though we receive this new one "We have been instructed by our client to recover the overdue debt. We DEMAND that the sum stated be sent direct to this office IMMEDIATELY using the payment slip below. Your failure to comply could result in a DEBT COLLECTOR calling upon you for payment or a COUNTY COURT JUDGEMENT being registered against you. Yours sincerely swiggly autograph! By the way this is from the DEBT ENFORCEMENT OFFICE in Whitchurch, Bucks. I am quaking in my boots....NOT! Any help what road I go down please with this one Is it same approach as the previous four and has any one heard of this company?8)
  16. i had a HP agreement in novemeber 1998 for a car taken with welcome finance. Recently i thought i would try and find out if ppi was included. I was young and silly at the time but needed a car. Through writing to WElcome -i have found out i did have PPI and what the premium was paid including the dates taken out and also a policy number. - all paid off i may add. Welcome have stated they dont know who the underwriter is with?? i have contacted: Aviva Llyolds in relation to this and both even after quoting policy number etc have denied being the underwriter?? I,m not sure who else to contact in regards? anyone else have any underwriters for arround that time that i can contact please? any help would be appreciated. thanks
  17. N power fitted a prepayment meter even though I was not in debt because of estimated readings. Before they did so they left a warning notice saying my gas was unsafe to use because of leaves in floe(Sep 2015). I had not used gas for sometime as boiler was broke. N Power were aware of this. I never fixed boiler and moved out last year so prepayment meter was never activated. 6 months after moving I receive a bill for over £800 in standing charges. I have been to ombudsman who were useless even contradicting himself and inaccurate amounts and dates. I have appealed but no joy. My question is should a prepayment meter have been fitted if an at risk notice was attached or should my gas have been disconnected and hence no daily charges?
  18. If I send a letter before action, can the person I am claiming against then submit their own claim to court against me??
  19. Hello you good people! Please advise, as I've read all the relevant threads but none end with a definitive answer or resolution. I deferred my Student Loans from 93,93,95 each May until 2013 when due to a move, I forgot. I phoned SLC around late 2014 to be told the loans were now with Erudio and to phone them. Having read all the hoo-haa surrounding Erudio, I didn't phone. Nothing further happened. Fast forward to March 2017 and I noticed a hard search on my credit file from Erudio. Nothing further happened. Since last month I have started getting multiple phone calls from Erudio. No message is ever left, and I have blocked each number identified as coming from their stable. As I am on the voters' roll, I can safely assume they have my current address should they decide to write. Could anyone please advise on what my options are? I don't want them getting a backdoor CCJ, but the account must be in 'arrears' since around June 2013. I am not in a position to pay, nor do I earn over the threshold requiring me to do so. As far as I can see, having read the other threads, my move should be to wait until they send a begging letter, then I send them a request for my original CCA? If/When they do what should I do then? By my calculations the first 93 loan should reach the '25 years' write-off point this year, however as I'm currently in arrears I don't think it applies? As my last deferment ran out May 2013 do you think I can just wait another 12 months, 'head-in-the-sand' stylee, until the debt becomes statute barred? I'd just like to know my options, and the dirty tactics I can expect from Erudio now the beast has woken and acquired me!! Any advice gratefully received. Thanks for your time.
  20. in October 2016 I've started a 2 years contract with Vodafone but after half a year I couldn't keep up with the payment and didn't pay since then. I do plan on getting rid of the debt once I'm fully back on track, I can't afford it at the minute and hoped I still have some time before any legal action can be taken. Recently I started receiving letters from Lowell Financial Ltd, headlining with "Pre-Legal Assesment". Do I have to be worried about any legal action? My Vodafone contract ends in Oct 2018 in theory. Are they able to file a CCJ even if they bought a debt of a contract that is not even brought to an end? I have read many other posts where people come with contracts that are 5-6-7 years old, and I'm here wondering how worried should I be about this letter. See the letter below. Thank you in advance.
  21. I`ll be brief because I suspect this subject has been discussed elsewhere, however I have trawled through pages of threads without success. I have received my SAR from Welcome Finance for the five loans and HP I had with them from 1999 through to 2002. Aviva have paid up £1700 PPI redress for one of the post 2000 loans but are refusing to pay for the other post 2000 HP Loan as they say the PPI was clearly evident on the form. What they have done in error is state that I was in full time employment. I was working full time, but I was self-employed as a trade plate driver for United Fleet Distribution. That was why I went to Welcome in the first place because they were the only loan company who would lend to me because of my employment status. they gerrymandered the forms saying that I was working full time, without saying I was self-employed. I am going to challenge Aviva on this second PPI refusal. However, my question refers to the other 3 loans which were taken out prior to 2000. Aviva say they were not the underwriters at that time. Other threads on here suggest that the FSCS are only taking responsibility for post 2005 Welcome loans. So who do I claim against for the 3 pre-2000 loans? I know from the SAR documents that PPI was charged and the amounts involved. However, I do not know who was the underwriter. Furthermore, I actually signed the documents at the Welcome Finance offices in Stockport and not at any brokers or loan brokers offices. I am hoping someone on here might save me the time and trouble and point me in the right direction. If it cannot be done, well I will have to lump it, but I now have the proof that PPI was charged on all 3 of the pre-2000 loans.
  22. Hello all, I've tried to read as many posts as possible but cant pin down the best course of action for my exact circumstances, I have several mortgage style student loans from 94-98 period that were sold to Honours (HSL/Link outsourcing) back in 1998 but SLC still do the deferment processing. I have always got my deferment forms in on time and have never earned anywhere near the threshold so was looking forward to getting the rolled up "package" of loans cancelled in 2023. But this year SLC never posted the deferment form and like a fool I didnt get around to chasing them. Just received on Thusday 18th April a letter dated the 11th from HSL warning of needing to start paying £185 a month when my deferment period runs out on April 24th. Being naive I phoned SLC who told me to phone HSL phoned HSL wanted NI number DD etc setup I reluctantly agreed! They told me SLC deal with Deferments Phoned them Got to a "supervisor" they won't resend deferment form but gave me code to log-on to SLC My account type thing which I have never used because have always Dealt with them by post. I have downloaded the deferment "pack" they never posted to me which and returned it complete with all evidence etc on the 18th and another copy by Signed for post today the 20th. Obviously this will not be processed before my current deferment period ends. If possible I do not want to give HSL any reason to say that I have any arrears or have broken the contract in any way. but I am loath to make payment By DD or with a card to HSL as I am carer to my spouse and we live on Pension credit and disability benefits So really we cant afford to pay. I would like to keep trying to engage with SLC and doing the deferment routine for another 5 years until the loans are wiped but I am sure HSL will insist i have defaulted because the deferment cover will have slipped for a few weeks and I will be stuck on the pointless chasing merry-go-round pass the debt to the link financial people etc and I do fear the risk of future CCJ even though I have decades of paperwork proving a right to deferment. I think I have been Deliberately engineered into this situation just wish I had chased SLC for deferment form earlier. can I cancel the DD with my bank ignore HSL and hope the 3 month rule means they have to backdate the deferment or reluctantly pay HSL sounds bonkers I know and try to claim back?? Fat chance.. The irony is SLC Know of my circumstances because I also have a Plan 1 type loan from 99-200 so I have to fill in an SLC form about that every December because they cant find me through PAYE system for the last few years. BTW yes I did graduate eventually please help many thanks in advance
  23. Hi there I am guessing this is a common problem. Around 2 years ago, I received a threat from Cabrot regarding an £8k credit card from Halifax taken out in 2000 (I think - may have been 2001). I followed instructions and sent them a letter requesting a copy of the CCA and got the usual BS saying they couldn't find the file but I am still liable for the debt, the last I heard from them was August 2016. Anyhow, out of the blue. Yesterday, I received a letter from our beloved friends stating they had found said documents and they believe these were enforceable to obtain a CCJ. There is no signature on the forms and the page numbers do not correspond properly with corresponding numbers either missing or duplicated (I have copies attached with details blanked out - I can only upload 5 but have another 5 or 6). Additionally, there is no credit limit either, just a note to say that it will be determined and could vary. They do however, have my name & address on the top of the form. Based on this would it be enforceable and accordingly, how should I reply? I had hoped this had been put to bed but sadly not and I'm hoping I am not screwed. Thanks in anticipation. KR
  24. Hello everyone it’s my first post. Have received Lowell Pre-Legal letter as title shows. It relates to 3 separate debts... 1. Capital 1 credit card £331.73. Last payment on the account was May 2013. 2. Vanquish credit card £725.86. Last payment on the account was September 2013. 3. Vodafone £1479.88. This one is NOT on my credit report. As yet I’ve had no communication with Lowell and really would appreciate advice on my next move. Thank you in advance!!
  25. Hello. I am new to the forum and need some advice/help. Received a letter from restons Re an old credit card debt seeking payment and issuing a county court claim against me. It should have been statue barred Dec 2017 but apparently I have made payments. It is possible as this card relates back to when I got divorced. I was advised to send a practice direction letter which I did and received a response from them. Can someone please advise what this means and is it worth defending in court. My friend has offered to pay it off for me as it is making me stressed. I have a mortgaged house and a car which I have been told they will put a charge on. Is it worth paying this off or defending and if I did what are the potential court costs, would it add a lot to the debt. Any advice would be appreciated. have until 5th Feb to respond. docs1.pdf
