    • Lowell/CCJ Long story short, I have been working in my debts the last few months as I'm looking at getting a mortgage this year.   Alas my main issue is an old CCJ that I found from Lowell, it was for what I assume can be described as a doorstep loan. The date the CCJ is registered is from a person of time when I was working away on the other side of the country. However even on returning home I can hand on heart say i never saw any paperwork from the court (I may have seen it but I'm 99.9% sure I didn't. I emailed Lowell last year to ask if they would agree to a mutual set aside and was given the template answer of they had followed the correct procedure to file it etc. The only other thing maybe of worth adding is that the default on my file and the CCJ are for different amounts (please see attached pictures) So I guess I'm asking if I have any options of getting it set aside? I can afford the payment in one but wanted to check if I have options to have it set aside rather than just having it as satisfied on my file for another 4/5 years

Hello,

 

 

I have an unsecured loan (Lombard) from 1997

 

 

due to major debts around that time arranged £10/month token payment.

 

 

I borrowed £5k and have repaid £2500 so far.

 

 

I offrered £3000 in 2007 when I sold my house and had a small balance to clear and they refused

- they say the total of the loan with interest was £7500.

 

I now have Arden contact me and on the income and expenditure form have asked for property value/mortgage outstanding etc.

 

 

Does anybody know why they ask, my loan was unsecured?

 

 

thx

DO NOT give them any pers financial details

 

only a judge can demand that

 

TBH: if this is for a loan in 1997 this looking like a cash cow exercise

 

can you tell us a wee bit more of the history

inc interest etc etc

 

not got PPI too have you + unlawful charges to reclaim?

 

have you the org agreement still?

You do not have to provide that information nor fill in the I&E form. They may be going to try and secure the debt via a Charging Order tho' either voluntarily on your part or via a CCJ.

 

Was there any PPI on this loan and have there been any unfair charges added which you can reclaim?

Thanks dx and cerberus for your prompt replies.

 

I didnt take PPI and if Im honest I was in a lot of financial trouble back then.

 

 

I have been paying an agreed £10/m to various agencies over the last 6 or so years such as Wescot and now Ardern.

 

 

Even though my situation has greatly improved I felt miffed when Lombard (via Wescot) didnt accept my lump sum offer

even though I explained i would be 91 by the time it was repaid.

 

Arderns most recent letter on the 27th June states I must reply in 7 days and that a fee may be charged on my account

if they have to write or call again regarding outstanding payments which is why I was about to complete the I&E form.

 

What happens if i refuse to fill in and what sort of charges arise if i dont/ thanks

Personally I would send a SAR to the original creditor to see if you can reclaim any charges and to verify that the agreement is enforceable.

Thanks dx- not sure what you mean by something smells

- it is a question on the Arden I&E statement namely what is my house worth and outstanding mortgage.

It also asks me for any other assets I may have.

 

I am sure that in all these years the interest was frozen for which I am very grateful

- I originally dealt with a Debt Counselling service who arranged the £10 fee.

 

 

I know I have the responsibility (legal and moral) to pay the debt however the "house value" question worries me and now also my wife.

 

I can pay more to clear it quicker but feel angry Lombard refused my offer 4 years ago and I dont want to show my greater income.

 

what would a SAR achieve since it is Arden who have 'bought' the debt?

 

 

thanks again

Hi mitch

 

I wouldn't be sending a dca my I&E..as previously advised this is an unsecured loan and they have no right to your personal information.

 

They cannot charge you of they have to write again (or if they do you won't be paying it).

 

A SAR to the original creditor will give you, amongst other things, a full transation history and information to enable you to establish the exact status of the account prior to being passed on. From this it will be possible to establish an claim you may have for unlawful charges which can be claimed back.

 

Be aware that the dca may be fleecing you so you would be wise to find out exactly what is going on and whether the figures are correct.

 

Regards

 

ims

your cra file should show that

 

what i mean by something smells is the age of this deb

 

my guess is that from the history of fleecers your list

 

lombard wrote this off against tax years ago and the payments you have been making have just lined the pockets of the fleecers.

so please dont let them call the shots

Thanks ims , your knowledge re the charges is a great relief to hear. I am still not sure why you think they may be 'fleecing' me , dx says it smells fishy or am I missing the blindingly obvious - dont they just want me to pay up? or is it something else?

If your a/c has been sold to a debt collector they cannot add charges or interest unless it was expressly stipulated in your original agreement. DCAs are well known for trying to squeeze every last cent from a debtor whether they are entitled or not.

Having had a threatening letter re solicitors I had to ring Arden last night (I know I know!). Your site gave me valuable info before I rang so I wouldnt be 'bullied'.

 

I took a loan out with Lombard about 12 years ago and consolidated it (twice I think),

I remember I may have taken PPI on the first or 2nd loan

but due to promotion to management I ws paid for sick leave and think the last loan was without.

 

She said the debt was sold to Ardern in November 2011 and I should have had a letter from both parties which I never received only 1 in 2010 saying Ardern were 'managing' the account.

 

she will send ne a copy of the CCA for free in the post and I should address the SAR request and the £10 to Ardern Complaints Department and not Lombard-

she was ultra inquisitive as to what excatly I needed the SAR for and pressed me hard.

 

She went on to say that if it was to check the PPI on the first loan I would only get info back regarding the 'final loan' and it wouldnt show the 'original' loan deatils.

 

Any ideas as to why she was so interested in my SAR request and is she correct about only the final consolidation loan details being held?

 

also should Lombard get the SAR request.

 

I currently owe £4900 paying back £10/ m although they refused an offer of £3000 to settle about 4 years ago. Any help would be appreciated

Hi I would ignore her instruction to send a SAR to their

complaints department you are not making a complaint

and Arden will only have data from when the aquired the

account and not right from the start.

You should send the SAR to The Data Controller at Lombard

by recorded delivery.

One last question now I have my £10 postal order.. the SAR template states "Account/Ref number", as my final loan included two previous consolidated loans will Lombard send me everything from day 1 including my first ever loan even if I only have the Ref number of my final loan?

The Request should state ALL data on ALL accounts

consolidated or not.

Latest Update:

SAR Request sent to Lombard

 

however I was getting concerned I had not received copy of CCA in the post as promised by Arden.

 

I have today received a statement from a company called Idem Servicing of my last 12 months payments (nominal £10/m). Balance now £4969.66.

 

Anybody got a clue what has happened here?

have Arden sold the debt on.?

 

Was my request for CCA and SAR not to their liking?

 

PS Idem are based in Solihull, coincidentally so were Arden and also Lombard

Here is an update to ongoing saga which whilst slightly confusing to me , perhaps somebody could enlightem me as to what these chaps are up to.

 

As previously stated Arden requested a copy of my loan CCA from Lombard which I received (my application actually if this is different?). within 2 weeks a company called Idem Servicing (almost same address in Solihull) sent me a statement. I have had no communication from either saying it had been passed on/transferred/sold etc. Is this a coincidence?

 

After 3.5 months waiting for my SAR request I received a form from RBS stating

  1. They cannot find any records
  2. They need proof of my identity

Surely they wouldnt give my CCA to Arden if they didnt know who I was? secondly when Lombard refused my offer of a reduced payment to clear the loan in 2007 in writing would they not have my address?.

 

Im asked on the form if the SAR request is related to a PPI claim? do i answer? They say I must get my driving licence photocopied at a Branch as a true and certified copy to confirm my identity.

 

Any advice would be appreciated
