We have a debt with Droyds which is currently being paid via pro-rata payments.

 

There is an enforceable credit agreeement and the debt is post April 2007.

 

The total outstanding is about £237 and we may be able to get some help to pay it off as a 'full & final' payment.

 

Any advice on what would be a reasonable offer to make?

Personally I would suggest £50 -£75 as a first offer on condition that all adverse data is removed from credit files.

Any Letters I Draft are N0T approved by CAG and no personal liability is accepted.

Reply to dx100uk: there are no charges or PPI and it is a catalogue debt (Redcats).

 

Thanks BRIGADIER2JCS. I guess that you just negotiate from there on until you get a result?

Yes, or you could offer the 10% - £23.70 in a very generous settlement.

BRIGADIER2JCS, this might sound really stupid but what do you mean by '...you could offer the 10% - £23.70 in a very generous settlement'?

 

Do you mean that we should just offer £23.70 as a 'full & final'?

 

Also, what are the chances of them taking an offer that low?

You won't know unless you offer it :)

 

Remember that these companies add 33% to the cost price of the item plus the interest you pay. So in reality you only owe them about £30

10/15% of the debt is the starting point for negotiations on a F&F settlement.

We have been offered some help, as I stated in my first post, to clear some small debts. This is one, of three, of the smallest that we have.

Hello dx100uk.

 

We have just checked with Experian and discovered that the debt has never been defaulted on, it just states 'satisfactory'.

 

Further, after checking our filed letters from Droyds

we noticed that on one occasion they have threatened court action and on two occasions they have threatened legal action.

 

Didn't think that they could do this without a default?

 

Strange, another letter does refer to a 'default plan'...

 

Any ideas?

Thank you for replying dx.

 

Have not sent a SAR as we cannot recall any charges being put on to the account. We don't even have a default notice for it but will check the credit file if it is supposed to be on there. What can they do if it has no defaulted?

 

Not going to accept the 'partially satisfied' statement as you have suggested.

 

Will reply when we have checked the credit file.
