Hi Guys

 

Just have a real quick wondering ment :-/

 

Spoke to Southern electric this morning as I recieved a letter saying my 4 weekly payments need to go up from £124 to £181

 

we use approx £103 a month in electric but we have quite a large debt on our electric

 

they know we have a disabled son and he has to have the light on all night and uses the laptop a lot etc

 

they are aware of that

 

they explained if we spend 10% of our income on energy we could get the debt wiped

 

they did thier calculations and we use 8.3% of our income on energy bills

 

but when they worked this out they counted our sons disability living allowance money in with our annual income

 

my question is can they do this?

 

It's not our money it's in his name and everything (he's 12)

 

Thanks guys

no they cant

 

DLA cannot be included as income by anyone.

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...

Hi Dx

 

Thank you so much for your reply

 

Without our sons DLA on our income we are spending 10.3% of our income on energy bills so we should be able to get this debt wiped do you have any ideas how we go about telling them get are wrong?

 

Are there any guidelines I could use that state this?

 

I am not sure if I am on thier care line scheme I will certainly find out Thanks again

as you have a vulnerable person in the household

get on the phone to them on the careline number

 

get your household registered because of your son.

 

then ask about the DLA being included

 

the careline lot are very good

 

they'll sort the bill if they can with the scheme

 

and p'haps move your tariff too.
