Quick question.

 

If you have already had a bad debt (sorry minds gone blank on the word) on your credit file for 5 years on a debit (the 5 years is now over)

and the creditor can't find ur CCA agreement and you moved home.

 

Forgot to inform the creditor and

 

a letter from a different creditor (11of them) turns up on your door step.

 

(10 statements and one letter to say I've failed to inform them).

 

Can they issue a CCJ against my file on the same debt?

 

Also do I have to inform them I now do live at this address.

 

They asked me to contact them without further delay to confirm

 

how I propose to lay off my outstanding balance (like that's going to happen)

If you dont inform them and they get a ccj then it is much harder to get a set aside because the claom was served at the last known good address.

 

Also cag doesnt condone debt avoidance. Can you give some background on this debt.

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..

Hi. Some advise please if you can. Long story short.

 

I had a debt with HSBC (2004)

 

I defaulted and had a red tick debt on my account for 5 years (sorry my mind has gone blank and I can't think off the word)

Went to credit collectors.

I was paying monthly.

 

Suddenly out the blue I get a voicemail on phone(2008) from another creditor saying I owe them the debt.

 

I seeked advise on the consumer forum.

 

Wrote a letter to the 'new' debt collector agency asking for my CCA.

They can't find it....

Being getting statements ever since.

 

I moved home earlier this year

advised all my creditors but

forgot about the DLC as I only get a yearly statement.

 

Today I came home to 11 letters from DLC 10 statement pages and

one letter saying I've failed to inform them of my new address.

 

I must confirm this is my new address and

 

how I wish to proceed to pay the balance (yeah right -they can't find my original CCA I'm currently not paying).

 

Do I have to write back to them?

 

If I do does it show that I agree the debt is mine?

 

Can they get a CCJ on my old address on the same debt?

Hi

not since Jan 2008.

 

When the new company voicemailed me.

as I was not sure who they were and was worried if I start paying them I could then get letters from the other company too.

 

I sent them a letter (after finding the CAG) to ask for my original CCA

and they are still looking for it.

 

I've not paid them anything since.

 

They even tried to send me a standard letter by recorded delivery to get my signature.

 

Luckily I was soon hung over the day the post man came that my BF signed for it.

You arent obliged to tell them that you moved. However as already advised, if they were to obtain a CCJ at the old address, then they would have served the papers correctly and unless you had another good reason for a set aside, incorrect service could not be one of them.

 

Was there any PPI on this loan or maybe charges that could reduce it.

They did not sell the debt to Metropolitan. Metropolitan are part of the HSBC group - their inhouse collection agents.

 

Have you actually received from Hillsden group a Notice of Assignment ?

 

If there was already an agreement for a reduced payment plan in place with HSBC/Met Collect then Hillsden are obliged to continue with that plan.

 

Have a read of the following.

well under the new FCA conc rules they should then crease all comms

if you've not officially written informing them of your correct address then even if its SB theres nothing to stop them getting a CCJ using an old address.

 

the days of ignoring debt and then hoping it gets to SB ended years ago.

unless they are told its statute barred

please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..
