Is it just wait and see? Or can I do something?

I have a number of credit card debts, a few years old now, all of which resulted in defaults. I've since moved house a few times, and have notified the (up-to-date) assigned creditors of my new address to try to ensure I get any and all mail involved.

 

Some have provided me with signed CCAs, others have not and occasionally send an offer for 50% off.

 

Some of my darkest evenings were spent reading these forums a few years ago, and I learned a lot. I'm now in a much better position, but wondering what I should be doing to resolve these debts, if anything. My thinking has been that I should just wait for them to act, or wait for six years to elapse.

 

It'll be a couple more years before all my defaults drop off my credit file. I'm building good credit histories with my bank and a credit card, which has a colossal interest rate, but which I pay religiously in full each month.

 

Is there anything else I can/should be doing?

 

How likely is it that they'll file court claims as the six year term comes closer to an end? And what can I do to prepare now?

 

What would prevent the debts from becoming statue barred? I haven't made any payments for a couple of years. Does contacting the creditor prevent statue barred status?

 

Appreciate your help!

Thanks for the reply dx. The claimed figures are (approximately):

 

Cabot Financial (Europe) Ltd

(OC Citicard)

£500 remaining, payments made here a couple of years ago

 

MKDP LLP

(OC Barclaycard)

£4,500

 

Hillesden Securities

(OC MBNA)

£4,000

 

HBOS

(Amazon Card)

£1,250

 

Tesco Personal Finance

(Tesco Card)

£1,900

 

Lowell Portfolio I Ltd

(OC Marbles card then Aviemore Funding Ltd)

£3,700

 

I attempted to reach a settlement figure with one or two of these over the past year or two to see where I got but my offers were not accepted (they were low - 25-30% if I remember) and I didn't put much effort into follow-up.

 

Hillesden sent standard form letters offering 50%, then 25%. They're the only one I'm certain have no CCA at all. Only three have provided anything with a signature however (Lowell/Marbles, Tesco, HBOS/Amazon).

 

1st Credit (acting on behalf of Aviemore/Marbles before that one was sold to Lowell) indicated that Aviemore would have accepted 75% in two instalments.

 

Is the goal with the SARs to flush out a CCA, or to claim back fees to reduce the claimed balances, or both? All the fees will be £12, as I didn't get into trouble until after the charges all dropped to that level.
