- I only had one loan with them way back in 2012

- but defaulted

- didnt respond to their letters and eventually got a ccj


- but after writing an email complaint to them which was responded to very quickly

and they agreed to get the ccj set aside

yep just like that - I can't believe how easy it was to get them to agree to my complaint and request for removal of the ccj - It was only confirmed on the 9th feb so have to wait 28 days for its removal from my credit files - confirmed over the phone this morning with the bulk centre

For anyone else out there who took out a PDL with Safeloans and had a ccj through them


- it may also be worthwhile you pursuing the same course of action with them


- the reson why

- this is a statement in their reply to my complaint -


"Since the time in question we have migrated twice out of previous Customer Relationship Management systems to our current operating system.


We have also moved offices in February 2013


and we have since closed our lending business on the 01.05.2015.


Therefore we do not have all the data available on historic settled accounts".

Hi the email address I used was info@sllcapitaluk.com



To whom it may concern,


My Safeloans ref = XXXXXX


The complaint read as follows;




I am writing to complain about a loan provided by Safeloans which was defaulted by me and subsequently a CCJ issued in August 2012.


My complaint is that should Safeloans Ltd have carried out affordability checks and even basic credit reference checks that this loan would not or should not have been approved. As at the time the loan was provided it would have been clear on any credit reference check that I had previously taken out payday loans with various lenders, was currently in debt with other payday lenders and any credit reference check would have also shown defaults with other lenders. All the information available on my credit file would have shown that I was reliant on payday lenders and therefore a risk.


Therefore the loan should not have been provided and as such if it had not been provided then I would not have placed myself in a situation where a ccj could be raised against me.


I hereby request that you remove all references to any loan, default or ccj for Safeloans Ltd from my credit files.


I understand that you are entitled to 8wee

To whom it may concern,


My Safeloans ref = 8wks or 56 days to respond to my complaint, but I do ask that you respond sooner so as not to lengthen the time to resolution.


Many thanks

Thank you for that Neil,

I have just had a reply from them, and they are going to investigate my case, how long did you wait between sending the initial email and hearing their decision ?


I have also used your template letter for a couple of other payday loans,


I will keep you posted,

    • My opinion, for what it's worth, is that this offer is the BC Cust'r Services response to a complaint and perhaps NOT the legal team's response to the court claim that's been filed.   What's the date by which Barclays t/a BC have to defend after acknowledging the claim.
    • Yeah this is the response they have sent.   Sorry, I emailed instead of posting. 
    • might be better to send the Scottish version if the debts were taken out whilst he was resident in Scotland.   ?
    • In any case, they only take over the authorities part in the enforcement process, so the contact and behaviour of the EA are not affected, different law.   You can still ring the authority in any case, the administrator is under the same obligation to withdraw warrants if needed.   seems to me that you have accumulated so much information which is either inaccurate or not applicable to your situation that you are stifled under the weight of it.   Firstly I would like to know how the bailiff was able to acquire a LO after six years. if as you say the authority got one at the onset, I would like to know who gave them a warrant after six years from the LO being issued.CPR83

    • This is a bit of a lengthy one but I’ll summerise best as possible.
      I was contacted by future comms by phone, they stated that they could beat any phone contract I have , (I am a limited company but just myself that needs a business phone and I am the only worker) 
      I told future comms my deal, £110 per month with a phone and a virtual landline, they confirmed that they could beat that, £90 per month with a phone , virtual landline  they also confirmed they would pay Vodafone (previous provider) the termination fee. As I am in business, naturally I was open to making a deal. So we proceeded. 
      Future comms then revealed that the contract would be with PLAN.COM and the airtime would be provided by 02, I instantly told them that this would break the deal as I have poor 02 signal in the house where I live as my partner is on 02 and constantly complaining about bad signal
      the salesman assured me he would send a signal booster box out with the phone so I would have perfect signal.
      so far so good.....
      i then explained this is the only mobile phone I use for business and pleasure, so therefore I didn’t want any disconnection time in the slightest between the switchover from Vodafone to 02
      the salesman then confirmed that the existing phone would only be disconnected once the new phone was switched on.
      so far so good....

    • The FSA has announced large fines against DB UK Bank Limited (trading as DB Mortgages) - DeutscheBank and also against Redstone for their unfair treatment of their customers.
      Please see the links below for summaries and full details from the FSA website.
      It is now completely clear that any arrears charges which exceed actual administrative costs are unfair and therefore unlawful.
      Furthemore, irresponsible lending practices are also unfair and unlawful.
      Additionally there are other unfair practices including unarranged counsellor visits - even if they have been attempted.
      You are entitled to refuse counsellor visits and not incur any charges.
      Any charges for counsellor visits must not seek to make profits. The cost of the visits must be passed on to you at cost price.
      We are hearing stories of people being charged for counsellor visits for which there is no evidence that they were even attempted.
      It is clear that some mortgage lenders are trying to cheat you out of your money.
      You should ascertain how much has been taken from you and claim it back. The chances of winning are better than 90%. It is highly likely that the lender will attempt to avoid court action and offer you back your money.
      However, you should ensure that you receive a proper rate of interest and this means that you should be seeking at least restitutionary damages - which would be much higher than the statutory 8%.
      Furthermore, you should assess whether the paying of demands for unlawful excessive charges has also out you further into arrears and if this has caused you further penalties in terms of extra interest or any other prejudice. This should be claimed as well.
      If excessive unlawful charges have resulted in your credit file being affected, then you should take this into account also when working out exactly what you want by way of remedy from the lender.
      You should consult others on these forums when considering any offer.
      You must not make any complaint through the Ombudsman. your time will be wasted, you will wait up to 2 yrs and there will be a minimal 8% award of interest and no account will be taken of any other damage you have suffered.
      You must make your complaint through the County Court for a rapid and effective remedy.

      Do you have a mortage arears claim to make? Then post your story on the forum here
