Hi All.


I have a bunch of debts that have been hanging around for years under a free debt management plan. I want to clear these up now.


Firstly, my main concern is that the totals currently 'outstanding' exceed the original borrowed in the first place by quite a while.


Also, the debts have been passed between a number of agencies and in some cases I don't even know what the original debt is anymore.


I'd also like to note that these collection companies have added plenty of money on the totals too so maybe I need to request a statement from them AND one from the original lender if I can work out how they are? In short, HELP! :(


So here is my plan / questions:


Can I / should I contact all the companies listed on my credit file and ask for a breakdown / statement? Is this a subject access request? Can I even send them one if they are not the original loan company?


I've attached a screenshot of the debts I am aware of / with my management plan in case there is any specific action I should take based upon the info / people. // I removed the screenshot - realised I had account numbers in there. Whoops!


Many thanks in advance.

I suspect those more knowledgeable than myself will be here shortly - and I anticipate them advising you start off by sending off CCA letters to all of the companies concerned to initially establish whether the credit agreements are valid (this costs £1 per creditor). The SAR would come later and costs £10 per creditor.
