    • 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

If you don't know what that means then have read around this forum about small claims in the County Court and see the steps. It's very easy.

    • Experts are saying the virus is likely to be present in parts of the UK, where people have come back from Italy and other hot spots.

Did you see that Wetherspoons have apparently said that those staff who self quarantine following advice from health services will not be paid. With Civil Service, if staff have had health services advice to not go to work for 14 days, once they have contacted line manager and it is accepted it relates to this virus, the absence can be treated as special leave. But the absence can be part of overall absence management.

Capquest/Drydens CO threat letter - claiming a CCJ exists for Erudio over old SLC loan 'debt'

Hi, I am hoping to get some advice following a letter i received from Drysdenfairfax Solicitors at the end of July.

 

I took out a student loan for 3 years while at university finishing in 1997.

 

I cannot remember whether all of my student loan payments were completed against the loan amount as it was such a long time ago (20 years!!).

 

However, I have had no contact with the Student Loans Company, Erudio or any debt agency about this for at least 10 years nor have they tried to contact me.

 

I received a letter now from Drydensfairfax Solicitors saying that their records show I owe about £5000 to Erudio and there is a CCJ against me and that I am a registered property owner.

 

I have checked with Equifax and there is no mention of a CCJ but I do own a house.

Drydensfairfax say they wish to proceed with a Charging Order to secure the debt against the property.

 

I tried to contact Erudio to understand what the situation is

but they say they have no involvement as this has now been passed to CapQuest

(this company has tried calling me a few times but i have ignored them as they leave unspecific general voice messages).

 

Erudio suggested I speak to CapQuest but I do not want to call anyone until I understand what my position is.

 

Can anyone advise me please on what I should do now as I am concerned with a potential court order against my home.

Is this a genuine claim and could they get this Charging Order even if there is no CCJ within the last 6 years?

 

Any advice would be really appreciated.

 

Many thanks

Hi - I have the trustonline.org.uk site as well and there are no CCJs that appear with my name against with this address.

 

So what should my response be to the letter of Drydensfairfax? Also, should I make contact with CapQuest?

 

Thanks again everyone for your support and guidance!!

As your Student Loan was taken out in 1994 it came under the Consumer Credit Act 1974. It is possible that a CCJ was issued against you more than 6 years ago so it would no longer show on your credit report.

That being said, even if they have a CCj against your name and it is by no means certain that they have, a gap of at least 10 years makes it virtually impossible for them to enforce it in Court.

 

I would write to Drydensfairfax claiming that as far as you are aware you fully paid your loan well over 10 years ago. Since that time you have had no contact from the Student Loan company nor Erudio about any outstanding amounts. You also have no knowledge of any CCJs against your name and put them to strict proof that one exists. . Accordingly, you will strongly defend yourself against any attempt to apply for a Charging Order and as your loan was covered by the Consumer Credit Act 1974 you will complain to the Financial Ombudsman about the unfairness of pursuing you for a debt that you do not owe and

waiting for over 10 years before making contact.

I think its best to establish if there is a CCJ first...if not the charging order threat is irrelevant.

Dryden's often sent these letters

They simply find a ccj that nowt had been actioned on and send them out

Its almost as if its an automated process which is why we need to see the exact letter scanned up

 

They are part of the arrows dca group

Who funnily enough are Erudio

 

Certainly if you have moved since the SLC days

They might well have gotten a ccj at an old address and you don't know it (slc)

And its more than 6yrs old

So has dropped of your cra file

 

And of course even if SLC sold the loan to redeo

They are not the named claimant

And will have one hell of a job enforcing it after 6yrs by a CO

Anyway

 

Letter scan please

 

one last point

please do not phone anyone again.

a dca or their tame/fake sols are

NOT BAILIFFS

and have

NO SUCH LEGAL POWERS.

I understand that Andy.However by attacking them back showing that the chances of getting a charging order are so remote as not to be worthwhile pursuing may get the OP off the hook that bit quicker.

They'd have to apply for an Interim CO first… then there's an hearing to make it final… Did you move house a lot? Perhaps they sent to the wrong address… but I doubt they can enforce the CCJ now that so much time has passed. TB

Me too… don't stir the hornet's nest! Anyway… they would just go ahead and get the ICO without notice if they were entitled to enforce the claim… which proves it's just scaremongering. :wink: TB
