My first post - apologies if this type question has already been answered elsewhere.


Due to ill health around 2001-2002 I was unable to meet the monthly payments on credit cards and a loan. My creditors agreed to suspend interest/charges and accepted reduced payments that I continue to pay today unsecured loan,; Frederickson International,Capitol One credit card; Mint credit card).


I was served a default notice in October 2002 for the Halifax loan but do not recall receiving the same from the other creditors. I have never missed or been late with the reduced monthly payments (total now owing ~£3XXX. total monthly repayments £45).


I have recently obtained £2 statutory reports from Call credit, Experian and Equifax. None of my creditors appear on these reports.


My questions:


1. Even though I cannot view these debts or their records on my credit files are potential lenders able to 'see' more than me when they make a lending decision?


2. Once I have paid these debts off with the agreed reduced monthly payments will they re-appear on my credit files as 'settled'? If so, could this affect future borrowing? If wanting to apply for a mortgage/ other credit would it be better to do it before these are paid off.

All references to a defaulted debt must be removed from your credit files after 6 years

has passed from date of default, whether paid off or not.


{the WHOLE ACCOUNT WILL VANISH, never to return}.


{however, this does not mean the debt itself is not still owed

consider a CCA request.}


This is so that someone who continues paying something

- even after 6 years from default

- should not be at a disadvantage to someone who pays nothing after default

and ends up with a clean file after 6 years.

NOTE: {the bracketted text is not ICO guideline but my advise]

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

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...
