Have 69 k of credit card debt,

all other priority debts are been paid ..

...mortgage,securedloan,gas,electricity,council tax etc.

 

 

This debt had built up over time as husband was made redundant a few times in several years.

 

 

Have still been paying cards,

some I have been robbing Peter to pay Paul with.

 

 

Have defaulted by one month a couple of times but bought up to date.

 

 

My question is

can I ask for a CCA on accounts while I am still paying them or do I have to default

and if I do ask and they have proper documentation can they then ask for all monies under the agreement at once.

 

 

Thanks.

My question is

can I ask for a CCA on accounts while I am still paying them or do I have to default - you can CCA at anytime but if they are post APR 2007 not much point really.

and if I do ask and they have proper documentation can they then ask for all monies under the agreement at once. - no

 

 

Thanks.

Also if you are struggling to meet repayments, ask your creditors for a payment break or a reduced amount for a set period. Never pay more than what you can realistically afford.


Any advice i give is my own and is based solely on personal experience. If in any doubt about a situation , please contact a certified legal representative or debt counsellor..

You can find out account starting dates by getting hold of your credit report.

As you may know,

it is very important to know whether they were taken out before April 2007,

because of a change to the consumer credit act.

 

 

If creditors want to enforce in court a pre April 2007 debt, they need to supply a copy of original consumer credit agreement, if you defended any court claim.

 

It is going to be a long process over years,

but if you can get hold of as much info as possible now,

it will help you understand how debt collection works,

what you need to do and hopefully avoid sny traps.

 

 

Original creditors don't tend to take court action themselves in regard to unsecured debts and instead sell on the debts to DCA's.

It is the DCA's that look to make money several years down the line.

If you own any property assets, you have to be more careful.

very ok to offer more but KEEP IT LOW.

 

 

take control of your money DONT let them dictate

they either accept you offer

or they get £1PCM till you die

 

 

take control, DICTATE to them.

 

 

if any income is paid into a bank account [or other member account of the same group]

get it out of their hands them they cant offset.

 

 

go open a parachute account

Have had replies back from Barclaycard about time accounts were opened mine was 2012 and my husband's was 2004.

 

If I CCA request the 2004 Barclaycard and they do not respond in 12 + 2 days ,is this debt unenforceable and would I then need to write and ask them to close account as defaulted.

Does not work quite like that. If they fail to reply to the CCA request properly, it just means that you could defend in court i.e non compliance with CCA request, if Barclaycard took it to court. Does not mean the debt goes away and it will not be chased. Barclaycard will just deal with the account per their usual procedures. And Barclaycard or any debt collector that follows can avoid the non compliance issue with the CCA request being an issue, by providing a true copy of the original CCA.

 

The point of sending the CCA request is to see whether Barclaycard can provide it. Banks often have major issues with storage of records and can't provide copies of documents. If you find out there is a problem, then you can use it to your advantage. If at anytime you are threatened with court action, then you request them to supply the CCA request. For accounts taken out pre April 2007, they need an original copy of the CCA.

Read that as a guide. Its pretty much foolproof3

 

you fill it in. You keep the full copy, you give the budget summary to your creditors.
