Default after 5yrs of AR markers - 2 shop direct accounts

Recommended Posts

Hi

Firstly thanks for reading and all replies are gratefully received.

 

I have been on two special arrangements with my catalogue Very and littlewoods for 5 years.

Today they tell me that I pay everything off in full or they will issue a statuary default notice.

 

The special arrangement has already had an impact on my credit file so surely they then can’t do it again for another 6 years.

I asked them 5 years ago to do the default notice!

They have also told me today that I shouldn’t of had the arrangement for that long anyway.

 

Is there anything I can do to avoid the default being placed today.

I want to downsize my house but if they give me two defaults it will a further 6 years when realistically it should only be 1.

 

Thanks

oh god they never go away can harm you for upto 12yrs.

 

the quickest way to get it defaulted and thus removed in 6yrs is to stop paying now.

the defaults should have been issue after the third missed / short payment

i have an update on this. I went to the financial ombudsman and they agreed shop direct should of applied a default 5 1/2 years ago. This was in October. The issue I have know is getting shop direct to update my file. FO are in contact but just wondered if anyone has any advice. I have the actions in writing from both FO and shop direct.

 

thanks in advance

give them 14 days else you'll start a serious complaint with the ICO and seek financial compo...esp if you've been turned down for credit or had to take out more expensive credit or been refused a mortgage, if their NON default was causing you harm by itself only on your credit file.

 

its for the creditor to update your file, nowt to do with CRF providers

If you report the incorrect entries to the credit reference agencies, they will contact the creditors to confirm your information and then correct it when verified.

 

Very VERY rarely happens as the creditor will simply say " the entry is correct".

How do you know that it very rarely happens, do you have access to statistics on the number of failed requests, and if so, how many of those requests have confirmation from the FOS that its incorrect?

 

You can't just assume it rarely happens because that's what you think.

I've been in contact with FOS and he has been telling them since early November to change it.

I have rung them also.

 

The woman told me do what you want we have already been fined so go ahead back to FOS.

The guy at the FOS wasn't impressed.

I just want it sorting

I'm looking to move and they just put my account from query to arrears.

Had I have know they would of taken so long I wouldn't of accepted their token gesture of £50 and I have expressed this to the FOS who said I should accept!

 

I think the 14 days letter by recorded delivery and a conversation with the ICO may be the way to go.

 

Thanks for everyones input.

I will also contact Experian with my letters from both shop direct and FOS stating what should happen.

I guess if I take it from every direction one might work!

 

Thanks again.

let the ICO sort it.

they will

the credit ref people will only refer you to them and the FOS and back to the OC's anyway.

 

ICO is always the way to go with Credit file issues.

Because its shop direct and they ALWAYS do this. I suggest you stop posting as you are giving out bad advice relating to creditors like this.

The ICO will not deal with the case until a report has been made to both the creditor and the CRA which holds the incorrect information.

    • 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.

    • I am new here but very glad to find my way here and would welcome any input.
       
      i purchased a brand new campervan conversion from Hillside Leisure (175 miles from our home) on July 26th for £31,000 and, within 48 hours, during a storm, the alarm began to sound incessantly. We could not get it to stop, even after trying everything listed in the manual. We phoned Hillside on Saturday July 28th around 2.00pm. The young man who answered the phone said he would seek the advice of their technician and call us back, which he did. The technician told us that they, Hillside, couldn’t help, but that we should take the van to Nissan (the van is a Nissan) as the fault would lie with one of their components.
