Hello, all, I'm sorry I haven't been on in a while due to illness/back to back forms. I hope you are all well.

 

As it's been five years I'm not sure what to do in re a debt that's been in dispute since May 2011

- sold by RBS/Mint to Cabot, from whom my husband has had a letter last month.

 

 

In 2011 the then collector Regal Credit closed the account as they could not provide documents as requested by my CCA.

 

Cabot's letter just says they will be in touch, not sure if I should wait to hear from them or CCA them now and/or mention the debt has been in dispute for five years?

 

I have the link to how to do a CCA of which I've sent many - I'm reading the link thoroughly as I know things have changed which is why I'm posting this, to make sure I'm doing the right thing.

 

Many thanks for any advice and I hope you are all well.

 

Best wishes

HY :oops:

By let it run do you mean, wait to hear from Cabot?

 

Latest credit report is in shed, we are half-bured in paperwork, so have to go dig it out.

 

Thank you.

let them do the running.

 

 

If they write again and say that you owe £xx then you send them a CCA request

and point out that the debt is in dispute.

 

 

This will give them 2 things to think about and they certainly wont be back in touch in a hurry

as it will take them ages to work out where the paperwork has gone and its current status.

Thank you both :-D will do

- have had another letter from Cabot today but just says if they don't hear from us then they will write again in 14 days.

 

Equifax credit file: RBS/Mint - de nada, goose egg, nothing listed. Will check out those other sites.

 

Hope you both have a brill weekend.

 

PS My husband has made a small donation to CAG to show his appreciation - we will try to do this whenever we can as we are grateful this information is still available, after all that's been scrapped..

Have had a letter this morning from Cabot. No mention of CCA Request, just the original letter we received when the debt was sold, demanding money. It's like dealing with an idiot robot.

 

Am sending a follow up reminding them they have 12+2 working days from 16 June (got proof they signed for the request on this date) to provide the agreement. Then will leave it up to them to waste stationery, ink, stamps, etc. until they provide what I've asked for.

 

Many thanks again, you guys.:-)

Cabot wont have the paperwork, and will lie and mislead you at every single turn.

 

Do NOT send a follow up. You have no need to. They are well aware of their responsibilities. Let them make the mistakes.

 

Think about it. Why would you want to tell them they made a mistake, and have them try and rectify it?

    • This is a bit of a lengthy one but I’ll summerise best as possible.
       
      THIS IS HOW THE PHONECALL WENT 
       
      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.
