    • The two companies are lowell and cabot.   I'll get the information and come back with it.   I did do quite a bit of 'Google' research before coming on here. There's a lot of confusing information out there they seem to tell you half the story.   Just so I'm clear. Bailiffs in my situation, if authorised by a court. Can enter the property through an unlocked door and seizure goods? Or can they not do that with a consumer credit ccj? Or point me in the right direction so I can read up on it.   Thank you for your help. It's good to finally speak to somebody who tells you how it is.
    • I've just acknowledged the claim and im reading up on how to do the cca and cpr requests now.   Thanks for all your help         Edit:   I was jus reading the cpr 13 template and it says i am requesting: " (template removed - dx)
    • Hi dx   Post 23 letter has been hidden as has a name in it. I did read the thread and in post 7 saw mention of 'must complain within 3 years of being aware it was mis-sold' if this is what you are referring to? Also my policy is live currently.   I think you know this, but it seems the RBS/Halifax agent doesnt know, that 'I became aware it was mis-sold just before I raised my claim (2019) having read a media article'  as I dont think the PPi team showed them the original claim form maybe, who knows.   Expanding, sorry I missed the word PPi after 'loan' in my post you quoted and highlighted. To be clear, the life protector was not for a loan, but a mortgage, and that mortgage did have a mis-sold PPi on it which they have admitted and refunded.   If it helps, I have several mortgage offers here from 1999 and they say 'Minimum life cover to be assigned to the bank'    The odd thing here is, I started the mortgage and PPi in 1999 but it was 2003 this life assurance started. I do categorically recall being told it was something I had to have though.   Many thanks   E

    • Hi @BankFodder
      Sorry for only updating you now, but after your guidance with submitting the claim it was pretty straight forward and I didn't want to unnecessarily waste your time. Especially with this guide you wrote here, so many thanks for that
      So I issued the claim on day 15 and they requested more time to respond.
      They took until the last day to respond and denied the claim, unsurprisingly saying my contract was with Packlink and not with them.
       
      I opted for mediation, and it played out very similarly to other people's experiences.
       
      In the first call I outlined my case, and I referred to the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 as the reason to why I do in fact have a contract with them. 
       
      In the second call the mediator came back with an offer of the full amount of the phone and postage £146.93, but not the court costs. I said I was not willing to accept this and the mediator came across as a bit irritated that I would not accept this and said I should be flexible. I insisted that the law was on my side and I was willing to take them to court. The mediator went back to Hermes with what I said.
       
      In the third call the mediator said that they would offer the full amount. However, he said that Hermes still thought that I should have taken the case against Packlink instead, and that they would try to recover the court costs themselves from Packlink.
       
      To be fair to them, if Packlink wasn't based in Spain I would've made the claim against them instead. But since they are overseas and the law lets me take action against Hermes directly, it's the best way of trying to recover the money.
       
      So this is a great win. Thank you so much for your help and all of the resources available on this site. It has helped me so much especially as someone who does not know anything about making money claims.
       
      Many thanks, stay safe and have a good Christmas!

Hi All,

I am trying to get any information possible on the removal of Settled Accounts that were in good standing

from the main credit agencies.

 

I used a well known payday loan company back in 2013 and rolled over the loan a few times and always paid early and in full. Never late and no negative info at all.

 

However fast forward 3 years , I am trying to secure a mortgage and have been refused due to having 6 entries from a specific payday loan lender. Even though they are all settled and paid and closed they underwriters see that as there were 6 entries, that I am a risk !!

I have a good credit score and this is the only negative.

 

This is causing me to have to look through other "brokered" lenders who all want to charge fees and I am looking at a higher interest rate also. It crazy that I borrowed and paid back on time and still penalised for it.

 

Can any one give me any advise on how I can persuade the payday lender to remove the settled accounts from my files??

As its causing me financial issues if I have to pay a higher interest rate because of them. Any help appreciated.

 

Thanks

Oh dear, sadly, even if you repaid your PDL loans on time, never defaulting - your credit history will still be trashed for 6 years. Simply having borrowed from a PDL is like the kiss of death - mainstream lenders will wonder why you needed to borrow from them in the first place and not from a mainstream lender !

Wonga pretty much sold its loans on the back of improving your credit score - this is simply not true.

if I had known then what I do now I would never had gone that route !! I read somewhere that it maybe possible to use section 10 of the data protection act about if the data causes damage or distress then maybe it can be removed ?? So if I'm having to pay higher interest rates because of the data reported then maybe that's is an option ?? Anyone ever tried this ??

no TBH section 10 is a biy of a myth and very old hat.

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

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...

Have a read of the link above - there are no template letters as each situation is different - however if you would like to draft something and pop it on the forum, we can proof it for you.

 

It would appear in your case you have taken loans out on the understanding that they would improve your credit standing. This is obviously not true and as you took your borrowing seriously, repaying on time - no defaulting, you believe you have been misled and would like the PDL history removed from your credit files.

 

I think there might have been a similar situation just recently, I will have a look and see if I can find a link.

what i have found with the complaints I rasied with FOS is that they tend to request the removal of all loan refs but keep at least the first 2 or 3

bare in mind that even if you do go down the irrisponsible lending route and get success with FOS they are unlikely to recommend the removal of all references with the CRA's

Thanks for the advice Neil, did you go down the irresponsible lending route to get removed ??

OH yes indeed - considering a lot of mine were just 3-4 loans, the FOS still decided to go with irrisponsible lending as the loans were pretty much running at the same time, FOS said in most cases paying the loans back on time did not show affordability

That's great info Neil thanks. Did you go to the lender first of straight to the FOC ?? I have had only 1 reply from the lender and emailed and written lots. Think I am being ignored now.

sample letter;

Mr Lender

Suite 105W,

Sterling House, Langston Road,

Loughton, IG10 3TS

Formal Complaint and Notice of Action

Reply required within 31days

To whom it may concern,

NOTE – FULL ONGOING COMMUNICATION IS TO BE VIA EMAIL, I WILL NOT ACCEPT ANY OTHER FORM OF COMMUNICATION – THIS IS SO THAT REPLIES AND ONGOING CORRESPONDANCE CAN BE QUICK AND ALLOW FOR A FASTER RESOLUTION – YOU CAN EMAIL ME AT

I am writing to you with regards to the loans taken out with Mr Lender, details of the loans and dates of which are provided below

Date Taken

Lender

Loan Amount

Close Date

Account No.

 

Mr Lender

 

 

 

 

Mr Lender

 

 

 

 

Mr Lender

 

 

 

All loans where taken at my previous address,

My complaint is that Instant Mr Lender provided me with the loans even though my credit history at that time, which was available on all the major credit reference agencies, failed to ensure that due diligence was used when providing the loans. Should Mr Lender have carried out even the basic level of credit reference checks it would have been clear to Mr Lender that I not only had a very poor credit history and score but was also at the time the loans were provided, in debt with other lenders and that your checks and procedure fell well short of ensuring that by providing me with these loans that I was in a strong enough financial position to repay them without affecting any other financial commitments I had at that time.

In affect Instant Mr Lender should not have provided me with any loan.

I hereby request that you refund all interest and default charges for these loans and in addition you include an 8% pro-rata interest payment to this refund.

I have attached a file below showing my credit commitments at the time that the loans by Mr Lender were provided to me, providing a clear view as to how heavily in debt I was at that time

Furthermore as the loans should not have been provided you are to remove all entries from my credit file/s.

Should you fail to reply within the requested time then without fail a complaint will be made with the Financial Ombudsman Service.
