Hi

i am 31 years old male i have 17 creditor debts totaling £19600 from 2005-2012

i need help to take control of this situation and some advise what to do.

 

I have 2 children and i want to put this right

 

i have been a bad boy and i desperately need to sort this out

 

i have recently been on the credit reference agencys and im full of defaults as im not suprised as i have never made contact with these debtors.

 

I have deliberatly just ignored them and hoped it would go away

stupid i know but i now want to take control and sort my credit history and rating out so i can eventualy apply for a mortgage.

 

I am a builder and i am regulary in and out of work

so keeping up payments has been impossible for me thats why i have chosen to ignore

but ive had enough i wanna sort it once and for all JUST DONT KNOW WERE TO START.

 

What i have done over the last few days is compiled a list of debts 17 in TOTAL = £19600

and I have been on equifax exsperian and noddle to see what details they have for me.

 

noddle have 6 defaults

exsperian have 3 defaults

equifax have 7 defaults .........all puting me in a poor credit rateing exspected really.........

 

all discracefull i Know wich is why i am here to admit were i went wrong and start to put it right

 

out of the 17 debts i have

some are newer i.e 2012

 

so is it best to write to those and make a token offer i

f that is correct so it doesnt get to the default court stage

or should i ask for validateing from them all first

 

what do i do next

 

do i validate them ask for there contracts etc

or just make an token offer to the collection agencys that have been bombarding me with phone calls and letters.

 

some of the 2012 debts are still with the opriginal creditor

 

what should i do next

 

i put theses debts through step change debt change a

nd they advised to go bankrupt there must be other options please help me start to sort this out.:violin:

 

Noddle score 1/5 points poor credit Not suprised

Hello and Welcome,

 

Starting a new thread for each debt in the appropriate Forum giving details of what the score is with the debts at the moment would be the best way to get advice.

I'd suppose quite a few will be with debt collectors so some could be placed in that Forum.

 

Regards,

 

Scott.

If you have this level of debts, a young family and no assets - and if you really do realise that you have made mistakes and you want to change and put it all behind you, then maybe you should consider bankruptcy.

 

Bankruptcy is a serious step but whihc doesn't carry the stigma it used to. We have some very good reports about how sympathetic bankruptcy counsellors can be and what a relief it is to be able to learn the lesson and to walk away and make a clean start.

 

The alternative to bankruptcy will be years of struggling to pay off debts to people who don't really care about you and who don't care about each other and who will each pursue you for their own pound of flesh even though there isn't enough left for you or all of the other creditors.

If you choose not to look at bankruptcy, you will probably be trying to resolve your debt problem for another 10 years which means that your children will grow up in that climate and as for getting a mortgage - don't even bother to dream about it for a long time.

As dx said, you seem to have a LOT of unenforceable debts there and your creditors know this. Thats why they are hounding you for cash. They want you to pay before you find put what is wrong with the debt.

 

First thing to do is calm down, take a deep breat and follow dx' s excellent advice. dont worry. Nobody here will judge you. We're here to help.


Any advice i give is my own and is based solely on personal experience. If in any doubt about a situation , please contact a certified legal representative or debt counsellor..

oc is original creditor

 

you need an SAR to get ALL the statements to look at reclaiming.

all those fees are UNLAWFUL PENALTY charges

 

IMHO 90% of those debts can in all effect be forgotten about. or dropped to £1.

 

i suspect you are only paying them as you fell for threat-o-grams from DCA's.

 

DCA's are NOT BAILIFFS & have no such LEGAL POWERS.

 

even IF these debts got to court

 

NO judge would make you pay more.

Sorry to hear about your debts, buddy.

 

The main thing is to calm down and stay that way because, as dx points out, a lot of those debts are unenforceable.

 

Although I'm unemployed and have a two credit card debts about 1/3 of your total,

I took the advice from the good folks on here and dealt with the problem as detailed on my thread.

 

The main thing is to decide what you're going to do.

 

Struggle on for years paying through the nose with the interest and debt,

or effectively say to the unenforceable creditors "sod it, bring it on"

 

They can't really do ANYTHING to you mate, not really.

 

Your credit rating will be affected I'm sure so if you care about that you'll have to try to strike a balance

The best thing to do darren, is to post in the appropriate forums as dx advised.

 

Your debts are easily dealt with and you might even come out on top with some money at the end of it.

 

Just be warned though, with the companies you have mentioned, it's going to be an uphill struggle,

but there are some very knowledgeable people on this site that can help you each step of the way.

 

One thing i would advise to you, is to make sure you never answer the phone to them.

 

If they catch you off guard, simply refuse to answer any "security questions", overtalk them and say, all contact to be in writing please, then hang up.

 

If they keep calling you, we can give you a letter to send to them to force them to stop.


Any advice i give is my own and is based solely on personal experience. If in any doubt about a situation , please contact a certified legal representative or debt counsellor..

I can answer the mortgage question, and it isnt good news. Even though the financial crisis was 100% the lenders and banks fault, they now demand 3+ years ( most want 6) of CLEAR credit history.

 

I'm in the same sort of position. I have a CCJ that doesnt come off my file for another 3 years. Upside, is at least i'll have a sizeable deposit to throw down on a property at the end of it all :)

ha ha good stuff mate 3 years not tha long tho ay

 

so my last default was on 04/2012 so 6 yrs after this is 2018 so is that when ill be ok for a mortgage is that when my credit file will be clear provideing i dont fall in the credit trap again

 

or will it be clear if i pay these original creditors off and make a deal for them to remove it from my credit file can that be done when i get back on the tools/in work an can afford to pay what the debt actualy is thanks DW:mad2:

2018 at the earliest yes. However, as i stated, the banks still want a few years of clear history AFTER the default is gone, to prove you can maintain your finances.

 

If you want to negotiate a settlement offer with a creditor, of course you can add a clause that all entries to your Credit record must be removed. But it is completely up to the creditor whether they accept that or not.
