    • Hi   ive looked into the Land Registry in Northern Ireland and can’t see a way to do this online. I’ve tried calling a few times but had to end the call before I got to speak to someone.    move the letter to Welcome ready to go, I’ve listed all addressed that I’ve lived at so they should have no reason to miss anything off.    However I’m struggling to confirm the address it should be sent too with welcome no longer trading. Does anyone have the correct current address?  Also, is the £10 fee still applicable? And if so is a postal order the right way to go? I’ve never owned a cheque book.    Once that comes through I’ll sort both Coasts and welcomes and upload. 
    • Hello there,    I am just after a little bit of advice please. In February out of the blue I received a letter from Capquest informing me they were now managing my Student Loans Company account on behalf of Erudio Student Loans Limited, they also included a letter from/on behalf of Erudio notifying me of a 'Change of Agency Notification'. They sent a follow up letter at the beginning of March stating that their records indicate there is currently not a repayment plan in place on my account. They then sent a further letter at the end of March informing me that despite their attempts to speak with me they do not have defined solution for the repayment of the account, therefore they would shortly be instructing Resolvecall Limited to visit my property. At the beginning of April I received a letter from Resolvecall informing me that they would be making a personal visit to my home. Yesterday they visited my property and spoke with my wife (I was at work). After reading various forums I have ignored all correspondence with the above but now after a 'visit' feel intimidated somewhat.   I started studying in 1997 so the loan account they refer to is a mortgage style student loan. If I remember correctly, when I finished my course I deferred a couple of times initially and then went travelling etc. and had no further contact with the Student Loans Company for a number of years. Upon returning to the UK and starting to work, I set up a small standing order to pay some of the loan but then stopped this in March 2014. I have not contacted the Student Loans Company in over 10 years probably more, and have never had any dealings with Erudio at all, and as mentioned my last payment to the account was in March 2014.   Am I correct in the fact that the debt is now statute barred?  Should I send a standard statue barred letter to Capquest or should I not engage at all?   Thank you for taking the time to read this post and any advice would be most welcome.

    • Hi @BankFodder
      Sorry for only updating you now, but after your guidance with submitting the claim it was pretty straight forward and I didn't want to unnecessarily waste your time. Especially with this guide you wrote here, so many thanks for that
      So I issued the claim on day 15 and they requested more time to respond.
      They took until the last day to respond and denied the claim, unsurprisingly saying my contract was with Packlink and not with them.
       
      I opted for mediation, and it played out very similarly to other people's experiences.
       
      In the first call I outlined my case, and I referred to the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 as the reason to why I do in fact have a contract with them. 
       
      In the second call the mediator came back with an offer of the full amount of the phone and postage £146.93, but not the court costs. I said I was not willing to accept this and the mediator came across as a bit irritated that I would not accept this and said I should be flexible. I insisted that the law was on my side and I was willing to take them to court. The mediator went back to Hermes with what I said.
       
      In the third call the mediator said that they would offer the full amount. However, he said that Hermes still thought that I should have taken the case against Packlink instead, and that they would try to recover the court costs themselves from Packlink.
       
      To be fair to them, if Packlink wasn't based in Spain I would've made the claim against them instead. But since they are overseas and the law lets me take action against Hermes directly, it's the best way of trying to recover the money.
       
      So this is a great win. Thank you so much for your help and all of the resources available on this site. It has helped me so much especially as someone who does not know anything about making money claims.
       
      Many thanks, stay safe and have a good Christmas!

I will update this as I go, I have just asked for my last 6 years statements and can tell Im going to need a lot of highlighters!

Seen all the mention of manual intervention, I just worked out all my charges on my account. Do I then need to check manual interventions as well with the DPA letter? Ive already sent off my first letter

It is always worth doing - but there is no reason why you cannot commence the process for repayment immediately. The only time you will need the manual intervention evidence is if they decide to defend your claim in court.

I read on here somewhere not to put the interest charges worked out (using the excel doc) in the first letter. was this correct? And do I then add them in for the notice Ill be taking court action letter?

 

Im reading it all but think I may have messed up on the interest payments now, which equal £458!

You do not add the interest until you are filing a claim in court .The letter before action informs them that if it goes that far that you will be claiming the interest.

already started a claim but as advised Im going to send off a DPA letter to check for manual interventions, pretty sure I havent had any as all Ive ever had is go over drawn and the usual automatic fees and also the same for blocked or accepted D-debits

 

Anyway who do I make the £10 cheque payable to? Im guessing "Barclays Bank PLC"?

I enclose the statutory maximum fee of £10. You have 40 days in which to comply.

As you may note I have already started a claim for the disproportionate penalties against me but would now like to confirm any manual interventions on my account as to make the process much easier for both you and myself should this reach the courts.

 

 

Hows that sound?

Not too good, if you want me to be brutally honest.

 

From a form point of view, punctuation is a necessity.

From a sense point of view, 1 - you want THEM to confirm manual intervention. 2 - How is confirming manual intervention going to make things easier in court?

 

Finally, I've just had to go through all your posts to understand what's going on with your claim, and I notice you're starting a new thread every time you have a query, when it's all part of the one claim. Please don't do that, stay on one thread. I'm now going to have to go and join them all, which is time consuming.

Sorry about that, didnt realise to raise minor queries in the same thread :)

 

Oh well I've just gone and sent it off, I thought we HAD to ask them for manual interventions?

 

I doubt Ill have any anyway, well hope not as I've never had to deal with anyone its all just been slightly over my overdraft and get the charge and the standard letter in the post.

 

Oh and it will make it easier in court if they use it as a defense, nothing there that can affect the case but as I hadnt sent the letter off and its POSSIBLE to reach court before they give me any come back on my DPA, if they then used manual interventions as part of their defense I could maybe use what I put in the letter.

 

I dont think it should affect my claim though.

 

I just realised I should have noted that I did send the WHOLE DPA letter and only changed the end bit, it should probably seem better now?

Just got my cheque and letter back saying they dont know what the Manual intervention is, pretty standard from what I have seen.

 

seeing as Ive already started my claim and I was only finding this out in case they used it for defense should I just ignore it? If they bring this up as a defence I can bring up the letter right?

 

Bank fodder do you need a scan of this letter?

 

PS they have said they will be supplying statements, well I already have them.
