Hi,

 

Im new to the forum and have joined for help.

 

My credit file and score has been obliterated by payday loans and defaults.

 

I am about to engage in settling and cleaning up my credit file.

 

I figured i can negotiate with payday companies and all i want is to propose a reduced settlement figure in return for settlement of the debt and my credit record updated accordingly.

 

I intend to make an offer and have them send me a letter accepting the offer and agreeing to update my record.

Without receiving this letter i will not proceed.

Is this the best way to move forward. Have it in writing so I can prove they agreed to my requests incase they dont actually do it?

 

Also is there a time scale i can enforce from settling the account until my credit record is updated?

 

Cheers

Hi no you cannot enforce any time limits on this, you should

also be aware that the credit file default entry will show satisfied

if a F&F settlement is made for an amount less than that owed and

that entry will remain on file as such for the remainder of the 6 year

life of the default.

Yes you must have written agreement before paying anything.

surely a default and a F&F settlement of lesser value is still a settlement. If the creditor agrees? And if i settle the defaulted accounts will my credit score begin to improve.

 

Also how long after the defaults before creditors overlook them as i have many credit accounts that i still manage well.

 

My current score is 272

No it is still a defaulted account that can be seen by potential lenders.

You start to rebuild a credit reputation in reality once the default entry

is removed after 6 years, then you must steadily build on by not making

numerous credit apps, having a low limit CC and paying it off in full each

month for starters.

I have 4 mobile contracts.

A 5k loan and

a £200 credit card which i manage in good order.

 

Plus I have a load of Payday loans settled satisfactorily.

 

If i keep my head down and stick with what i have,

will it at least come up enough so my bank will offer me a current account?
