    • Hey! Sorry for not writing, I have been extremely busy in the past few weeks. I do have a question though and I wanted to see your opinion. I understand that the next step will be probably to take legal action against Amazon. But there is one thing that I haven't tried yet. What do you think about filing an official complaint through a third party, like https://www.econsumer.gov/#crnt or with the relevant (private sector?) ombudsman (I am not sure where I could do that)? And if I am not happy with the ombudsman's decision, I could still take court action. 
    • what about the unnecessary building insurance?   but to be honest you are not going to ever seriously dent a £148k sum  
    • No just the year stated from 2019
    • Or even the off-premises definition c will apply here too. a contract concluded on the business premises of the trader or through any means of distance communication immediately after the consumer was personally and individually addressed in a place which is not the business premises of the trader in the simultaneous physical presence of the trader and the consumer;   I am not sure what would be classed as 'immediately'   Great to have this discussion by the way which I hadn't contemplated.
    • No negotiations or discussions took place at the agent's premises - the only face-to-face contact was at my home when the agent came for initial introduction and appraisal of the property. Good question regards to the difference between the two. I guess the distance contract applies to sole online purchases whereas bullet (b) of off-premises contract applies to me as the agent's represented visited my home and the offer was made then for the services.   “distance contract” means a contract concluded between a trader and a consumer under an organised distance sales or service-provision scheme without the simultaneous physical presence of the trader and the consumer, with the exclusive use of one or more means of distance communication up to and including the time at which the contract is concluded;     “off-premises contract” means a contract between a trader and a consumer which is any of these— (a) a contract concluded in the simultaneous physical presence of the trader and the consumer, in a place which is not the business premises of the trader; (b) a contract for which an offer was made by the consumer in the simultaneous physical presence of the trader and the consumer, in a place which is not the business premises of the trader; (c) a contract concluded on the business premises of the trader or through any means of distance communication immediately after the consumer was personally and individually addressed in a place which is not the business premises of the trader in the simultaneous physical presence of the trader and the consumer; (d) a contract concluded during an excursion organised by the trader with the aim or effect of promoting and selling goods or services to the consumer;

Hi,

 

I am just starting out with all of this and I am finding it a little overwhelming

but I wonder if anyone can help me with a debt that I have. I was seriously ill etc

... and was made redundant on medical grounds in 2010.

 

I defaulted on my Lloyds TSB bank account which had an overdraft on it.

 

I now owe them £2282 and I pay £5 per month on a repayment plan.

 

I really want to sort out this debt and

 

the site team said to start a new thread.

 

They have said that I should possible just stop paying AK

but I am not sure what this means.

 

Can anybody help me figure a way out of this debt hell??

Hi gilly. Can you post up as much info on this as you can? it is rare arrow deal with good debts, but we need to know the info so we can see if it would be enforceable or not.

 

ALso, did the banks charges put you in any kind of hardship? As you could have made a hardship complaint to them and get all the charges refunded

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..

 

 

If my advice helps you, click the star icon at the bottom of my post and feel free to say thanks

No problem, I can do that.

 

Do you want to see statements?

 

I was diagnosed in 2011 with a rare illness and I have medical evidence to support it.

 

I was also on benefits from October 2010 and I am pretty sure I have the paperwork to prove this as well, but I will need to check.

 

Please tell me what you need me to give you and I will look it all out.

 

Thank you so much for your help :)

It means that they normally only buy debts off creditors where theres something wrong with the debt that stops the original owner chasing it. Thats not to say that ALL their debts are like that, but a sizeable majority are. Thats why we always recommend checking out the debt as much as possible before you enter into negotiations to pay it or even admit it's yours.

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...

I think you would do well to understand the mechanics of debt sale and purchase a bit better. This whole 'there is something wrong with the debt line' isn't particularly accurate. Whilst I agree that debts should be investigated I think it's better to try and manage the expectations of what the likely outcome will be - especially in relation to overdrafts.

I've removed the attachment as you name is showing on the first page.

 

however , the docs are of no real value sadly.

 

they just show the std OD usage interest etc

there appears to be no significant penalty fees

just a couple of £10 ones.

 

so i'm at a loss as to why they have sold it to be honest.

 

must be that they Lloyds have written it all off and reclaimed the tax.

 

due to your health issues and thus they can never see any real return.

Thanks, sorry I thought I had hidden all the information. Ok so nothing I can do about that one then? Just keep the £5 payment. I have been reading about the site and notice something about AP markers. Is there a chance that the longer this goes on they will put AP markers instead of DF on my CRA?

you don't want AP

 

that's very bad they never go away

 

when does the default drop off?

Banks and creditors generally have a policy to sell debts on once the debt has reached a certain age. They do it en-masse regardless of whether or not there is 'anything wrong with the debt' - it's a business decision, plain and simple.

So is there a chance that I will get AP markers if this debt goes on?

 

I personally wouldn't think that would be very fair if so. If the debt has been sold on to a DCA it should only really do so once it has defaulted; and if that is the case then they shouldn't be prolonging your misery via the AP route.

 

Hope this makes sense.

Thanks sequenci that helps a little. I am sitting here in tears at the moment because I just don't know how to get out of all of this. My life is on hold and I am very anxious about it all. How can I ever begin to repair my credit when I am in no position to clear the debt? We need a house as we are currently in a two bed flat with two children who are differnt sex and have reached an age where it is not appropriate for them to share a room. Also the continuing debt hanging over me is just killing me. I hate it, I have 5k of debt which isn't much but I just can't move forward in my life at all.
