    • Question: My wife received a couple of cheques (1 in Jan and 1 in Feb) from HSBC apologising how she was dealt with back in, yes, 2008. Now should we inform HSBC of our current address because they were forwarded from our previous one? The reason I ask is that redirect from Post Office expires in September.
    • not sure what you think is going on but they are nothing to do with any official court forms... it's merely a process and fleecing debt buyer must go thru should they be thinking of requesting northants bulk issue a speculative court claim on their behalf.   just send it as is dont change it.   as for d: just put .....the debt purchaser has yet to provide any or all of the required documentation.   dx    
    • if you type in auxillis is our search top right in the red banner you'll see this con over auxillis and supposed courtesy cars , but it's not its an HP agreement is well known here.   9/10 it's ends up with you fronting a court claim out of your own pocket for auxillis against the other parties insurance company that you don't stand a chance of ever winning for a claim against them for the excessive HP hire car costs you got scammed with.   may i be frank that whomever told you looking at the circumstances of you incident that you'd ever win a claim and it not be 50/50 was wrong.   you were in a narrow road in a housing estate with cars parked down one side on a blind sweeping bend exceeding the speed you should have been doing for the stated weather conditions. running into someone's side that pulls out infront of you in such an area and it being where you live too so you know it well would never be the other parties sole fault even without the poor weather. if this were to go to court IMHO you would lose.   sadly shows you were not p'haps driving with due care and attention. hence your ins companies stance.
    • I did see not to give those details out, but as these could wind up official court forms, I dont want to be on the wrong side of it.   the areas in boxes D and I, is it ok to say ""refer to appendix A, refer to appendix B"? There s a REALLy long list of "what the hell" I want out of them as this is making zero sense. Not only that, I've got a long list of "this is the hell" I need to send back in the dispute too.

    • Hi @BankFodder
      Sorry for only updating you now, but after your guidance with submitting the claim it was pretty straight forward and I didn't want to unnecessarily waste your time. Especially with this guide you wrote here, so many thanks for that
      So I issued the claim on day 15 and they requested more time to respond.
      They took until the last day to respond and denied the claim, unsurprisingly saying my contract was with Packlink and not with them.
       
      I opted for mediation, and it played out very similarly to other people's experiences.
       
      In the first call I outlined my case, and I referred to the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 as the reason to why I do in fact have a contract with them. 
       
      In the second call the mediator came back with an offer of the full amount of the phone and postage £146.93, but not the court costs. I said I was not willing to accept this and the mediator came across as a bit irritated that I would not accept this and said I should be flexible. I insisted that the law was on my side and I was willing to take them to court. The mediator went back to Hermes with what I said.
       
      In the third call the mediator said that they would offer the full amount. However, he said that Hermes still thought that I should have taken the case against Packlink instead, and that they would try to recover the court costs themselves from Packlink.
       
      To be fair to them, if Packlink wasn't based in Spain I would've made the claim against them instead. But since they are overseas and the law lets me take action against Hermes directly, it's the best way of trying to recover the money.
       
      So this is a great win. Thank you so much for your help and all of the resources available on this site. It has helped me so much especially as someone who does not know anything about making money claims.
       
      Many thanks, stay safe and have a good Christmas!

Hi

 

Last year I separated from my husband,

as a joint debt we had an unsecured loan of £30k from NRAM which we had for years,

my ex then decided to go bankrupt leaving me liable for the loan.

 

I paid my half of the monthly amount due for a few months and then just couldn't continue to pay anymore.

 

I wrote to them in December 2016 offering them a full and final settlement figure, which they ignored (this was quite low).

 

The first time I have heard from them since me contacting them in December 2016 was last month they wrote to me to say I still owe £28k.

(even though through interest this has been paid back and more!)

 

 

They are now threatening:

 

*instructing a field agent to review my position

*Debt collectors

*CCJ

*Bankruptcy

 

They have given a time limit for me to get in touch with them.

 

I don't know what to do,

I haven't paid in over 1 year now,

I live in rented accommodation,

I don't own any assets,

I have a limited company

 

am worried if they do make me bankrupt then I wont be able to carry on with this.

 

Do I offer them again a full and final settlement offer?

I don't have any savings

I would be offering this via a third party.

 

Has anyone been sent a similar letter?

Does anyone know of NRAM accepting and Full and Final settlement offer?

 

I've heard that when a company sells a debt its usually at 20% - 25% of the amount, is this correct?

Should I offer at this % of the balance?

As I don't want for it to be rejected again.

 

Any advice gratefully appreciated.

 

Thanks

When did you take out the original ? ( year/approx month)

 

Was this part of the Northern Rock scheme they ran where this unsecured loan was on top of a mortgage ?

 

The letter received is just a standard chaser with options.

 

Full & Final settlements are normally accepted only where it is the only option of the creditor getting paid much, rather than very small payments over years. A relative of mine, paid off a mortgage debt of about £30k for a F&F of about £2k. It wasn't Northern Rock.

 

Is this the only debt you have ?

 

Don't go making any offers at the moment, until you have looked at options.

We could do with some help from you.

I took this out in 2007, we also had a mortgage with them at the time.

The house was sold a couple of years later and we were still left with paying the unsecured loan with a much higher rate of interest.

 

I do have a credit card which has about £2000 but this is interest free so when chipping away at this its going down.

 

What options should I look at?

Before or after 6th April 2007 ? This is important as it relates changes to the consumer credit act effective from that date. If it was after this date, then the debt is quite easily enforceable in a court, as they don't need to provide an original copy of the consumer credit agreement you signed.

 

At this moment in time, i think you should send NRAM a Data Protection Subject Access Request asking for copies of everything on the mortgage file and everything on the unsecured loan file. Also specifically request copies of statements of account, copies of all documents they issued and system notes. If you click on the Subject access request auto link there is a letter, which you can amend to suit.

 

In regard to paying the debt at the moment, if you don't have sufficient income to meet the regular payments required and would be in financial hardship if you attempted to do so, then you might wish to reply to NRAM stating your position in writing ( without admitting to owing the debt) . Tell them that you are seeking financial/debt advice due to your current financial situation and understand that under FCA rules they are required to allow 30 days for advice to be sought, before they can recommence communications. Ask them to confirm in writing that they will put matters on hold to allow time for the advice to be obtained.

 

If you do those two things now, then it should give you a month to look at options. It will take NRAM a month approx to send you the SAR info back.

 

At some point, you could contact Stepchange the debt charity and run through your finances in a confidential way. Then they can assess what options you have and you can consider best way forward.

Thank you.

I believe it was July.

But I will send a letter requesting this.

 

Friday I received a letter from DMS.

Informing me they have been instructed by NRAM limited to meet with me to discuss any problems I may have with the account.

 

Is this usual practice

 

As the letter from NRAM said I had 60days to respond before any action would be taken.

 

It looks like they have already passed it on?

DMS probably want to visit you where they will try to encourage you to sign up to a payment arrangement.

 

Suggest you write back to DMS saying that you are already in contact with NRAM and will not be discussing anything with them, while issues are outstanding with NRAM.

if its DMS mortgage ltd then they are a bunch of fleecers that buy up unenforceable old secured loans and spoof people blind.

I would still do as suggested. Just write to this person at DMS saying that you currently in contact with NRAM about this and also seeking financial/debt advice. Therefore under FCA rules they are required to allow a period of at least 30 days, while advice is obtained.

Just to warn you that i can remember seeing reports from others in your situation receiving a letter from DMS saying they would make personal visit on x date and they turned up.

 

The £100 fee dx talked about was added to the debt.

Obviously dubious as to whether they can add such fees.

 

Hence why i advised to write to DMS, if you are in the process of contacting NRAM.

 

Otherwise you might have someone turn up at your house expecting to discuss the debt.

Hi

 

just to update you I sent the subject access request to NRAM.

 

Also a couple of days ago I received another letter from DMS,

it was hand delivered

and it said over the last few days I have visited your home twice

and on both occasions have left a letter, which is a lie.

 

It said if they don't hear from me within 24 hours

I shall have no alternative but to assume that I don't want to discuss

and he is returning a report to NRAM without my input.

What sort of thing could he report on?

 

The next day I also received a letter back from NRAM which said and I quote word for word

"We have been unable to your signature from the letter of authority against our records"

 

I know they want to see my true signature they have asked for a signed document such as passport or driving licence.

the also sent the £10.00 postal order back along with a copy of the letter I sent them.

 

Any advice on any of this please?

 

 

Thanks

It is normal for a DSAR to be rejected, if they can't identify you. So if you want the NRAM info, then resubmit with a photocopy of any identity doc.

Hi

 

I've now received the paperwork.

 

The paperwork shows agreement date of May 2007.

 

Really not sure what to do now

 

I haven't had any contact from them but I know it's coming.

 

I really want to to go for a final settlement order.

 

Any suggestions?

 

Thanks

It might be worth going through all of the payments you ever made and see how much it adds up to. And how much of it is interest.

 

How much in charges has been added etc.

There are excel spreadsheet calculators around and I seem to remember this being linked to in threads.

If not start writing down lists.

 

Reason I suggest this is your orginal comment, that you have more than paid this loan, yet the balance is not much less than the loan originally taken out.

Perhaps ypu might spot an error amd/or have a complaint you can make about excess charges.

 

Too early to be thinking about a reduced full and final payment offer !

Issues with payments, charges and interest applied.

Until you start looking with a fine tooth comb, difficult to say.

Perhaps there will be no errors.

But I would be checking.

NRAM sent a field agent out DMP.

 

Who apparently has reported back to NRAM but I haven't heard anymore than that.

 

NRAM have sent me all SAR info now.

 

When the house was sold years ago that was all settled and it was just the unsecured loan which was still outstanding with them.
