Erudio/drydens Claimform - SLC Loan - ignored everything inc recent PAP

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I received a County Court Claim (Northampton) 4 days ago for a couple of pre-1998 student loans that I'd successfully deferred until 2013

 

. My account was not in default at the time, but when Erudio took over, I decided to ignore their deferral form because of all the personal info they were demanding, and later because of all the stories I heard about their dodgy practices.

 

long story short,

I've never replied to any of their correspondence, but unfortunately I ignored a PAP from Drydens recently, and now I have a County Claim form.

 

My address hasn't changed, but I'm guessing that they're going for a default judgement as I've never sent them anything.

 

I intend to defend the claim, but not sure whether my ignoring their letters previously will look bad if it goes to court?

 

Many thanks in advance for any help on this matter.

Thanks,

but that's the same link as you posted above (referring to post 17 on that thread).

Is there something new on there?

 

The fundamental differences between mine and paperphobia are that my loans were taken out earlier than his (meaning that my agreement specifies that they can assign rights and duties to a third party),

 

the amount I "owe" is only half that of his,

and I have never entered into any correspondence with Erudio.

Just a quick update - I sent the CCA and the CPR 33.14 requests. Dryden have sent me the following:

 

We refer to the above matter and your recent communications with this office.

Please be advised that we have placed your file on hold whilst we seek our client's instructions. We can also confirm that we have issued a request to our client for the copy documents to which you refer in your letter.

We will contact you further once we are in receipt of their response.

 

Also, the POC refers to an account number that is an Erudio one, and not the original SLC ones. They have bundled multiple loans into one account number without referring to these in the claim form. I did receive a Default Notice from Erudio too, in June 2016, followed by a termination notice about 4 weeks later.

Hi Dx.

Yeah, I did the AoS last week. Just preparing my defence now. I was wondering if the issue of the account number was a valid point to raise?

Just wait to see if CCA and 33.14 requests come back first.

 

The account number issue is a small issue, which could be mentioned about clarity of their claim, as they have not provided all information required to be able to properly scrutinise the validity of the claim.


We could do with some help from you.

Understood, dx.

Also, thanks, Unclebulgaria. I wasn't planning on relying on the A/C no discrepancy, but would certainly use it as part of my defence. At the end of the day, I always deferred successfully with SLC and have never earned over their threshold.

Only just realised this - not sure if I've made a terrible error or not. The CCA request I sent referred to the Erudio reference number, and not the original SLC ones. So I only sent one CCA for the bundled account (with the Erudio a/c#). Is this likely to be a problem?

An interesting development - the postal order for the CCA request has been returned in a hand-written envelope with yesterday's date. Included is a hand-written note on an Arrow Global compliments slip. It says "Please be advised Arrow no longer require a £1 fee. Please find the postal order enclosed and now considered returned to you. Many thanks"

The returned postal order has the Erudio account number written on the back.

Thanks dx. So I'll send separate CCA requests using the original SLC numbers (which were not listed on the claim form). Am wondering if the returned PO is a trick and whether I should send new ones with the new requests just to cover my arse?

Ah hang on getting you confused with one of the others here..

You've only received one claim form yes? Not 3 Sep ones like someone else here?

That's right. I received one claim form for multiple loans. The POC quoted an A/C# that was actually the Erudio one and not the SLC one (see posts 6 & 10)and made no mention of there being more than one loan. The CCA request I sent quoted the A/C# they had put on the POC.

The D/N and termination notice I received bundled everything together too, instead of being one for each loan.

you've not received a claimform for multiple loans...it only states one [cleverly hidden behind their number]

now if that is a series of loans lumped together, they cant really do that.

 

why don't you wack an sar off to slc, then you'll have the ammo to throw at erudio, as if they simply return ONE agreement and their claimed sum is far greater than that ONE stated on its agreement, then you have the info to bat them away forcing them to come clean.

If we look at the historical maximum loan amounts (for one year), it was £420 in 1990/91 (see http://dera.ioe.ac.uk/22816/1/SN01327.pdf), and when The Education (Student Loans) Act 1997 (s6) was published, the figure was £2085 for London residents.

This would mean that those with a claim form for £7-8000 must have had more than one loan, yet have only been issued with one claim form. I suspect that it is the Erudio A/C# on the claim form, and not the original SLC ones (the SLC one was an 11-digit code - [YY][4-letter university code][5-digit numerical identifier])

So is it OK for a Default Notice to cover more than one agreement? Or should there be one for each agreement? I can't find anything in the CCA 1974 about this, or anything specifically on CAG.
