    • Hi   When you say lease is this a Private Rented Property? (is it a lease or an AST)   Exactly what type of Agreement did you have and start date and end date?   Was your Deposit protected in a Tenancy Deposit Scheme and your were given a copy of the Prescribed Terms of that Scheme?   When you moved out of the property was this agreed with the Landlord and a check out inspection agreed? (i note you mentioned they couldn't carry out the inspection due to covid-19)   Does your lease agreement have any clauses in it for 'Late Payment of Rent or Rent Arrears'? (if so what does it state)   Is there anything in the documentation from Lowell's giving a breakdown of this money owed? (does it have anything mentioning damage  or it is just rent arrears/charges)      
    • you can't continue the payments eitherway ...think about it............... so it makes no odds if you stop payments now does it...   it can't harm you by stopping else they'd be no point in either dro or pro-rata as it shows either would thus be pointless   pers i'd go DRO simply contact an approved intermediary
    • it's interesting to see the default has gone, but that would not have been the cra but lowells themselves, or poss the default reached 6yrs and was auto removed?   anyway no you don't take them to court and no don't need to settle the debt it's not harming you.   if you look at lowell claimform vanquis threads here (use our search to right) you'll see thats the usual twaddle they roll out for a CCA return which has never won them a court claim yet.    
    • So sorry but just to check do i write to all these about the debts and try get deal to reduce monthly payments and stop all interest first or do I stop payments then write to them ?    Same if I was going for the DRO option do I just sort out and apply for that first or stop all payments then apply for it .
    • Thanks ive got them now to read through and also got a pro rata form .

    • Hi,  
      I was in Sainsbury’s today and did scan and shop.
      I arrived in after a busy day at work and immediately got distracted by the clothes.
       
      I put a few things in my trolley and then did a shop.
      I paid and was about to get into my car when the security guard stopped me and asked me to come back in.
       
      I did and they took me upstairs.
      I was mortified and said I forgot to scan the clothes and a conditioner, 5 items.
      I know its unacceptable but I was distracted and Initially hadn’t really planned to use scan and shop.
       
      No excuse.
      I offered to pay for the goods but the manager said it was too late.
      He looked at the CCTV and because I didn’t try to scan the items he was phoning the police.
       
      The cost of the items was about £40.
      I was crying at this point and told them I was a nurse, just coming from work and I could get struck off.
       
      They rang the police anyway and they came and issued me with a community resolution notice, which goes off my record in a year.
      I feel terrible. I have to declare this to my employer and NMC.
       
      They kept me in a room on my own with 4 staff and have banned me from all stores.
      The police said if I didn’t do the community order I would go to court and they would refer me to the PPS.
       
      I’m so stressed,
      can u appeal this or should I just accept it?
       
      Thanks for reading

hi there,

 

i need as much help as possible. had various defaults when i was younger which are still showing on my credit file.

Most of which are still on there, but have been satisfied - by me working very hard to clear my debt.

 

i'm looking to improve my score dramatically though so i need to go about clearing these off, for instance i had a ccj that has been paid off, originally for barclaycard, passed to hlcf, took me to court, i've paid it off but need it removing from my credit file.. so who would i write to for this?? (the judgment is satisfied on my credit file)

I had a credit card with halifax, a catalogue with freemans both given to cap quest - both paid off now - but the default is still on there.. who would i write to to get this removed??

i had an old mobile bill with o2 passed to lawell and co or something - who would i write to to get this off??

 

i know its probably simple but i'm looking to get this done as soon as possible?? are there any letter templates to get all these notices removed which i can send to these people?? all i want is a decent credit file so i can look to buy my own home - and have worked hard for 3 years to do it but these things are stopping me!!

 

TIA for any help recevied

then you have another 3ys to wait till they drop off.

 

there is no way to remove them they are relevent data to your past history.

 

if these are all being shown as satified then they should not really be affecting you.

 

infact, as they are now shown as satisfied, it might even help show you have been responsible in dealing with your debts for 3 yrs.

 

do you KNOW you have a credit issue?

to be honest i've not even tried to get credit because of these problems and i wasnt on a voters role until the 3rd of this month. when i finally registered at an address. i felt its not worth it with the problems i've had in the past. but to be honest i wouldnt want credit but not many people have 100k plus to be able to give up to buy a house just like that. do you reckon applying for a high interest rate credit card will help me out. the only thing on my file is a orange phone bill which gets paid every month, and a halifax loan which is also with capquest from about 7 years ago which i owe 4.5k on... thanks for your help

so how are you gauging you have a poor rating?

 

this capquest thing, you need to challenge it.

 

pick a bad dca.....you have the number one rip off merchants there.

 

7 yrs / £4.5k - i bet there are heaps of chagres & p'haps PPI you could reclaim. and if capquest have ever added ANYTHING to the figure they inherited from halifax, then thats a No NO.

I just figured it would be bad having 4 defaults and a ccj. even though they all shows as the balance satisfied. except this capquest one.

 

i rang them a week ago and they said they couldnt give me a statement because they dont do them and any queries need to be directed to their legal team via e-mail. what a joke!!

 

I'm figuring its time i write a letter to them then and forget about removing these default notices and ccj from the file...

 

thanks for your help dx

i'll ring them tomorrow i think. get me put on there and hopefully get my score in the high 900's!

Hi there

 

make sure you put your previous addresses in your experian profile if you have moved in the last 3 and half years when you do your own experian search because if you dont it will only search the profile address you set up

 

also if you have debts registered at previous addresses these will need to go in to make sure you get the true score

 

if you havnt moved house then no need to worry
