Hi all

This whole process of Charging Orders and the possibility that you can actually LOSE a 250K house because of a relatively small amount of debt(3,000) on a CREDIT CARD which is supposed to be an UNSECURED debt is getting too much.

In the recent recession was unemployed and had the normal CCJ and CO as I couldn't keep up payments on a Marbles / HFC credit card.


Now I'm actually working again I can make payments but RESTONS (Warrington) just aren't interested. It seems they just want the house "for the hell of it".


Even the amounts I have paid them have NEVER been acknowledged -- no receoipts or anything so it's difficult in any case to keep track of what the current state of the account is.


I'm sure when and if I do get a final bill there will be HORRENDOUS extra charges etc added on so how is one supposed to even know what to pay.



Is there anyway I can get the whole thing delayed for a bit so I can get the whole thing paid off.


My reading is that Restons are a particularly NASTY VICIOUS bunch of people to tangle with so I'm not sure how to deal with this -- If I were to offer the court a reasonable percentage of the amount would this help.


I'm sure that a "Huge" collection charge has been applied as well.


Surely the courts aren't meant to allow people to lose their homes on really small amounts of debt or allow thuggy companies like Restons to grow fat on peoples misfortunes.


Surely in future Credit cards etc should carry a CLEAR warning that NO DEBT IS UNSECURED.


Thanks all

there are several threads on this situation and how to deal with it.


just type in restons in the search of the blue bar above.



please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...

Thanks for the links


Even in the abysmal standard of DCA's and debt management procedures generally RESTONS do seem to be the lowest of low lifes -- and I suspect they really get a thrill out of harassing people.


I'm quite surprised somebody hasn't taken these **** apart on a Street Corner yet -- of course its illegal but so are a lot of their own practices.


However we'll have a go at them by LEGAL means.


Another irritant -- I sent them 6 post dated cheques paying a reasonable amount of money per month with a letter saying position to be reviewed at the end of June.


Of course NO recepts etc were given and at beginning of July got a threatening letter saying You've missed an instalment and unless payment is received etc etc they will go to court for the whole outstanding amount without warning -- and they added 15 GBP VAT charge to the account --what account as I never got any details etc etc.


It was quite clear on my original letter that I said position to be reviewed at the end of June -- carry on / pay more or less etc.


Even if you try and be up front and pay these **** you don't get ANYTHING back but Grief and Hassle.


Can I take the unusual step of either getting another DCA to take the debt of Restons hands or make a deal with the original Lender (HFC Bank).


Dealing with RESTONS is just too much of a pain anymore --just as I am going back to work again and will be in a position in a few months to clear everything this type of B/S comes back again.
