Hello, thanks for reading

 

This matter relates to an old style loan of about 2k taken out in 1991/2 and consistently deferred until 2013,

 

when I moved abroad to work (still earning under the threshold) and my deferral form went missing.

I then forgot about it as got ill and depressed..(have medical evidence to back this up)

 

Moved back to UK in 2014 and was unemployed for nearly a year.. so have never earned anything like the threshold limit.

 

I also turned 50 in 2014 (am now 51)

 

So, the long and short of it is, Student Loan Co wrote saying I was in arrears, then threatenign court action.

. Now it has been passed to solicitors and a case has been opend at County Court

 

I may have forgotten one deferrment form and defnitely sent one that they claim they never got.

. But in any case, I turned 50 wouldnt the debt be wiped?

 

And if I can prove I have never earned above the threshold, will they still have a case against me?

 

How do I defend it?

 

Is it now statute barred ? or has deferring it (until 2013, they claim was the last deferral) meant that it is no longer under the limitations act?

 

I'd welcome your advice, have acknowledged service of court docs, giving myself 28 days to prepare to defend

The debt can only legally be wiped at 50 or 25 years if you are not currently behind on payments and the loans have not been called in in full.

You will have arrears from failing to defer and they must have called in/terminated the loan agreements for them to be launching legal action now.

 

So sounds like you have missed the boat on ever getting these wiped off under the age conditions.

 

It doesn't matter what you can prove about how much you earned if you failed to defer.

Duty is on you under the loans to defer at the right time. If you don't then again you miss the boat.

 

It's not statute barred as applying for deferment up until 2013 means the 6 years won't have started to run until 2013/4 ish.

 

As for defending I think you probably don't have much realistically you can do,

but may be worth doing a CCA and CPR to see what that turns up.

 

 

Though even that with student loans is usually not much help as the loan agreements are publicly well documented and can easily be reconstituted and argued.

Thanks Windy sock, I believe at the time of turning 50 I wasnt in arrears as had provided deferrment info up to that point, was a full time masters student 12-13 and then once in Malta sent the info to them...

 

OK, so who do I send the CCA to (and what is a CPR?)

 

The court documents say its Honours trustee c/co wilmington trust

 

I don't recall taking out a loan with them!

 

Thanks again for your help

I found this on their website

 

if you were under the age of 40 when you took out the last of your student loans, and your earnings have never reached the threshold required to begin repayment of your loans, Honours Student Loans will automatically cancel your loans when you reach the age of 50. This is dependent on your loans having no arrears at the time of cancellation.

 

As far as I am aware, I had deferred in 2013 (until the end of my course) and had sent in deferral forms covering me for that period (when I turned 50 in Jan 2014)

 

so if I can show that, would they not have to write debt off?

 

I have never made a payment or entered into a payment agreement, as far as I'm aware as I have never crossed the threshold

When did you enter into the original agreement before or after 2007? Student loan taken out in 1994

Has the claim been issued by the original creditor

Sending in deferment forms is not the same thing as being deferred,

and the onus is on you to chase it up if you don't get confirmation of deferment back.

Things do get lost in the post sometimes after all, which would not be HSL's fault.

 

You would have to argue that HSL did receive the forms and it was due to their negligence that you were not deferred at the time you reached 50 and cancellation was due.

 

You would need to defend the claim on that basis, and should perhaps also tell HSL that you are making a formal complaint on their failure to defer you with the FOS as well.

 

I think you may struggle to make a strong enough case if you just didn't bother to chase the deferment up when you didn't get confirmation back, but hope to be proved wrong.

It came in the normal post today, the blue form from the court...

 

I spent 2014 being very ill and depressed.

 

I really can't remember what happened..

 

I went away, I came back..

I sent the deferrment form while In Malta.

. and then came back to be unemployed.

 

. I just sank into a bit of a mire and didn't think.

 

. But I definitely remember sending stuff in before I turned 50.

 

. and yes maybe I can defend the claim on that basis......

They is how they normally come yes.

And you deffered to SLC?

 

Are large tranche were sold to Honours Trustee Limited (trading name Honours Student Loans) who are the claimants here.

 

SLC do NOT own any of these old style ones now so they could not possibly be the claimant. It has to be one of the purchasers.

 

SLC did carry on doing the admin of deferment for many of the loans though, which can confuse as to to ownership.

SLC still do the deferment NOW for cases where you have loans split between Honours, Thesis, Erudio and you are just carrying on an already in place deferment.

Would a claim letter be hand delivered or sent by normal mail? Does anyone know?

 

Can be sent by normal 1st class post under the Civil Procedure Rules. See CPR Part 6 https://www.justice.gov.uk/courts/procedure-rules/civil/rules/part06

 

In fact under Practice Direction 6A

 

Service by the court

 

8.1 Where the court serves a document in accordance with rule 6.4 or 6.21(2), the method will normally be first class post.

 

which is what happens in most county court claims.

No, it was a normal first class royal mail delivery

 

The claimaint is Honours Trustees.. as I filled out the form... to the best of my ability

 

sols are Restons

 

no court stamps just a normal brown envelope with the return address northampton county court on back

 

I'm getting a bit confused but will try and keep up

 

I took the loan out with SLC,

then transferred to honours who have always done the deferring.

 

 

. I have successfully deferred up until 2013 when they claim I stopped, but I definitely sent the forms back!

 

ok CCA to claimaint (Honours Trustees)

 

and CPS (what's this?) to the Solicitors who are Restons

seems as per windysocks post.

the regs;

12. The lender will cancel the borrower’s liability to repay the loan if the borrower—

(a)dies,

(b)is not behind on any repayments under any agreement for a student loan and—

(i)was under the age of 40 when his last agreement for a student loan was made and he reaches the age of 50 or when the last agreement for a student loan has been outstanding for not less than 25 years, whichever is the sooner, or

(ii)was aged 40 or older when his last agreement for a student loan was made and he reaches the age of 60, or

©if the borrower can show the lender that he gets a disability related benefit and because of his disability is permanently unfit for work.

http://www.legislation.gov.uk/uksi/1998/211/made

 

they'll prob be saying that you dont meet this criteria re the year short re non deferment. for you then to try and argue otherwise.

 

and the issue of documentation otherwise

IMO

Thanks Ford. I will argue that as I was a) not earning above the threshold at the time of my 50th and had sent the deferment forms in - from Malta, that the loan should be wiped out.

 

thank you

You would have to word the defence that Honours Trustees should approach the same as SLC under the legislation that applies to the loans and their normal operating practice. Then point to legislation, that you were 50 at the time the court claim was issued, that the loans were deferred up to x date, earnings below threshold for repayment.

 

I am not sure you can just say it should be written off. You have to offer facts to support your case as to why you are not liable. Then it is up to the Judge.

We could do with some help from you.

Indeed. At the time I turned 50 I was not in arrears.. I had sent in the deferrment forms in good faith, and up to that point (some 20 odd years) I had deferred with no problem, it wouldn't make sense to not defer if I was not earning the threshold (which, working HE, I never have!)

 

So, the onus is on me to prove I sent the forms - which unfortunately I can't. but I can prove my earnings have never crept over the threshold and that I had consistently sent in my defermment forms up until that point.

 

I understand that... will have to do my best.
