Removal of default - CRA Direct

Recommended Posts

Would apprecaite speedy (if pos) advice on this matter.


Currently in the process of taking various banks to court regarding charges/defaults.


As we are all aware this can take some time.


Now despite repeated letters to my various banks (including withdrawel of permission). The CRA are still continuing to display these defaults.


I am in the process of applying for a mortgage (on hold pending this reply), and it has been estimated that these defaults would cost an extra £75 per month in relation to my mortgage repayment as it will effect which company will lend me the money.


My question is, has anybody had any sucess (zooman?), in contacting the CRA directly and informaing them of the current action that theytaken and the breaches that the financail institutes are making in their unlawful actions by continuing to allow the information to be porcessed, and the fact the CRA are collaberating with them (as they keep informing me they will not take the info down unless the bank tells them to).


Help much appreciated as Im in letter writting mood

Had letter of experian today - this nightmare just gets worse for me!!!!


They have said that they have contacted Natwest and Natwest have confirmed that the information is correct, the information is not in dispute and they have not breached the data protection act.


The information is not correct as the whole default is made and of charges, and my claim is actaully worth 150% of the total default. The information is in dispute as natwest had until today to file a defence (no news) and they have breached the data proctection act because twice they have been sent (by recorded delivery) the notice to cease processing.


To make matters worse experian have stated that they will be removing my notice of correction (which I placed in the interim to state the information is incorrect) within the next 28 days!


AS per my pervious post this situationis just getting worse, and I realy could use some help now as I feel like I am sinking further!!!

Well I'm sorry to have to tell you that the CRA will not remove the default. The most they will do is put a notice of correction on your file.


If you chose to try and get the default removed yourself, you are looking at a £150 outlay, several rounds of letters and at least 2-3 months before anything gets resolved.

Ah right. I just dont understand why natwest have responded the way they have when I have court papers to show the amount is clearly being disputed, I mean its a blatent out and out lie!!!


Surely this thing with the CRA is life having a criminal record (speaking metophorically) against you, prior to a trial being started!!!! Its a case of guilty until being proved inocent here!


My other point is though, experian have said "in light of the fact Natwest have denied any dispute in the default, we will be removing your notice of correction in 28 days".


So Im not even allowed tohave a notice of correction on my file because natwets have downright lied about it.


Is it worth sending the CRA my court papers to prove the amount is in dispute, if nothing else it would allow the notice of correction to stay on my file?

    • The FSA has announced large fines against DB UK Bank Limited (trading as DB Mortgages) - DeutscheBank and also against Redstone for their unfair treatment of their customers.
      Please see the links below for summaries and full details from the FSA website.
      It is now completely clear that any arrears charges which exceed actual administrative costs are unfair and therefore unlawful.
      Furthemore, irresponsible lending practices are also unfair and unlawful.
      Additionally there are other unfair practices including unarranged counsellor visits - even if they have been attempted.
      You are entitled to refuse counsellor visits and not incur any charges.
      Any charges for counsellor visits must not seek to make profits. The cost of the visits must be passed on to you at cost price.
      We are hearing stories of people being charged for counsellor visits for which there is no evidence that they were even attempted.
      It is clear that some mortgage lenders are trying to cheat you out of your money.
      You should ascertain how much has been taken from you and claim it back. The chances of winning are better than 90%. It is highly likely that the lender will attempt to avoid court action and offer you back your money.
      However, you should ensure that you receive a proper rate of interest and this means that you should be seeking at least restitutionary damages - which would be much higher than the statutory 8%.
      Furthermore, you should assess whether the paying of demands for unlawful excessive charges has also out you further into arrears and if this has caused you further penalties in terms of extra interest or any other prejudice. This should be claimed as well.
      If excessive unlawful charges have resulted in your credit file being affected, then you should take this into account also when working out exactly what you want by way of remedy from the lender.
      You should consult others on these forums when considering any offer.
      You must not make any complaint through the Ombudsman. your time will be wasted, you will wait up to 2 yrs and there will be a minimal 8% award of interest and no account will be taken of any other damage you have suffered.
      You must make your complaint through the County Court for a rapid and effective remedy.

      Do you have a mortage arears claim to make? Then post your story on the forum here

    • I am new here but very glad to find my way here and would welcome any input.
      i purchased a brand new campervan conversion from Hillside Leisure (175 miles from our home) on July 26th for £31,000 and, within 48 hours, during a storm, the alarm began to sound incessantly. We could not get it to stop, even after trying everything listed in the manual. We phoned Hillside on Saturday July 28th around 2.00pm. The young man who answered the phone said he would seek the advice of their technician and call us back, which he did. The technician told us that they, Hillside, couldn’t help, but that we should take the van to Nissan (the van is a Nissan) as the fault would lie with one of their components.
