    • 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

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.

Good evening all,

 

I took out a unsecured personal loan around 2 years ago with Tesco bank.

My financial situation has changed quite a bit in the past 6 months, lost a family member, dealing with depression and anxiety and due to this my self employment businesses sales have plummeted. I got a part time job to help cover my living expenses so i'm trying my best to keep up with all of my payments.

 

My outstanding balance is just over £16k. Monthly payments just under £400. The past 4 months I've been paying late. At the end of every month I end up giving every single penny I have toward this loan payment.

 

Tomorrow I am planning on sending this letter off I found in the forums.

 

https://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?387346-Ask-Creditor-to-Accept-Pro-Rata-Payments-**Correct-as-at-October-2013**

 

I was just wondering where I can find a I/E sheet? and do I include this loan payment in that sheet?

 

Also what is considered a reasonable offer that they would be inclined to accept?

 

Is this the best way forward?

 

Thank you in advance

i'm at minus £200 odd for the month, I have been borrowing money from my parents to cover the payment for the past few months, do i mention this?

so i'll most likely be offering £200/month, this isn't an 'insulting' offer is it?

 

thank you

This is the only debt I have.

 

The large portion of my expenditure is direct debits for gas, water, electricity, car insurance, road tax, Internet, mobile phone. I've had to have a very frugal lifestyle for the past few months so other expenses are at a minimum already

 

Do I send them the i/e sheet with the minus or do I change it so it looks like I have just enough? I can just add my parents money as an income from my job

I need both for my work but I've tried to reduce them down a lot too, around £20 for both

 

So do I send it off and leave it as it with the minus figure?

 

If I show them that I have just about enough won't they just decline my offer?

You're right, I'm going to send it as it is with the minus then and offer them an amount accordingly.

 

This place has helped me ease my worries so much I appreciate your help.

Quick update, Tesco were really helpful and agreed to a lower payment for 3 months and they will review my circumstances again after 3 months.

 

Thank you DX! You don't ask you don't get.

Hi, I'm about to send another letter as my situation hasn't improved, in fact it's gotten worse. I can only £5/month after cutting back on everything. I was wondering whether there is formal way of requesting that they get back to me via letter? I have anxiety and speaking on the phone amplifies it.

If they ring in future simply tell them "everything in writing" and hang up.

 

 

Repeat the process or block their number.


Who ever heard of someone getting a job at the Jobcentre? The unemployed are sent there as penance for their sins, not to help them find work!

Good evening all.

I've received a letter from Tesco stating that they want to know about a certain payment to another creditor and the balance of that account.

 

They also said due to the level of arrears on my account and the low payment offer I made that's it's necessary for them to issue me with a default notice followed by a termination notice and that I'll receive these in the post shortly.

 

They also mentioned that after the default and termination notice that my account will be transferred to the recoveries department,

 

does anyone have experience with them?

Will it just be me making an agreement with another department?

 

Without sounding silly, what do I do?

Send them a letter with the balance I owe to PayPal?

They want a reply within 30 days.

 

Also they said they will default and terminate my account then further down the letter they state if I don't reply within the 30 days that's when they'll automatically default and terminate my account

 

They've put my account on hold till a certain date by the way.

Theyre just passing you to their debt collection team. Its still tesco. If its another company, tell them to get lost and deal with tesco.

 

Remember, they dont get to demand a payment amount. All payments to non essential debts are paid equally so no creditor is treated unfairly.

 

Dont tell them specifics. Send them a simple budget summary that says something like "credit card 1 - xxx amount, credit 2 -- xx etc etc.

 

Dont go naming names.

 

https://tools.nationaldebtline.org/yourbudget/ is a good budget summary generator.

 

remember, if they refuse your payment and youve sent them proof you cant afford more...i drop them to £1 a month until they comply.


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..

 

 

If my advice helps you, click the star icon at the bottom of my post and feel free to say thanks

:D

bottom line is it doesn't matter what you do

they are still going to default and terminate the A/C

 

they've no legal remit to demand any evidence, only a judge can demand that, and as its not going to make a monkies diff to their decision, whats the point, none of their business anyway!!

 

you only ever communicate by letter too!

Ok I understand, the trouble is I'm paying the other creditor 8 times more than I'm paying Tesco, could this be why they 'refused' the offer?

 

Thanks for the advice, I'll just reply with a short letter stating the balance for the other creditor and nothing else, right?

 

I might be sounding a bit ahead of myself but I just don't want anyone knocking on the door.

they are not the same thing!!

 

a dca is NOT A BAILIFF

never can be a bailiff

and has

absolutely ZERO legal powers.

 

a bailiff could only EVER be involved in a civil consumer debt IF:

someone takes you to court.

you lose [FAT chance here]

you fail to pay in 28 days

the judge allows their use.

and even then they have NO RIGHTS of forced entry on a civil consumer debt, and in any case can almost always ignored as such.

 

pers I wouldn't be replying to tescos at all as post 21
