Hi can I please get some help regarding three letters that have come from Lowells.

We have recently returned to uk after living abroad and previously had advice regarding some if not all of these accounts back in 2014 I believe. The debts are coming up SB mid this year, default dates 2013. I believe we were previously advised to SAR I think, which, I think we did.

 

I also believe one- a capital one debt, we sent a PPI claim for which was denied I think.

 

Here are the accounts.

 

ME-CAPITAL ONE $420

MY WIFE- BRITISH GAS $75 didn't even realise we had this...pretty certain we were on prepayment meter?!

MY WIFE- CAPITAL ONE $1695 ( SAR sent off 15th May 2013)

 

Do I need to do an SAR again for these? Can anyone advise what to do please.

 

Thanks a lot

With the capital one debts, find out the last date of payment. Remember, the default date has nothing to do with the SB date


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..

Yes. Just call the Original creditor and ask for the date of the last payment on the account. For it to be classed as contact, you would have to write something specific for it.

 

All you want is the date of the last payment.

Normally SB comes into force around 30 days or so after the last payment is made.

 

Ok great so possibly SB in the next month going by the likelihood of the past posts. Ill find out date of last payment.

no the clock starts tickin the day after your last payment or written signed acknowledgement of the debt.

you are talking about the cause of action for a Default notice.

 

there is no link between either date

most credit cards have a monthly billing cycle so it would be normal to say that the default date is one billing cycle after the last demand for payment. So ofr example, you got a bill on january 1st and had to pay the instalment by feb 1st. The default would kick in at the time of the next bill arrived on march 1st. Many companies dotn report the default becuase people sometimes forget to pay or struggle temporarily and it all gets sorted by the end of the next month. That has led the banks to purposely not issue a default to your files for some time to extend the period before the debt drops off your credit files. They claim they are doing their best to sort it out with you but it is just punishment and doesnt change the actual default date, just how it appears on your credit files.

judging by last posts in that old thread SB might have already passed?

And a CCA request isn't acknowledging the debt, nor is a PPI claim, no?

 

Would it be worth sending some sort of SB letter then or not?

Or do we still need to ring original creditor and find out for certain the SB date first?

 

Just want to be clear....

So default date doesn't matter,

neither does 30 days passed since last payment,

neither does date when payment was due but not paid and no payment has occurred since.....

NONE of these are relevant to SB is that correct?

 

All that matters is that last actual payment date,

and if any written acknowledgement of the debt, yes?

 

If so, that means some of these debts are already SB definitely tomorrow as wife made a post on that thread 18th Jan 2013 saying no payments made at all recently.

    • This is a bit of a lengthy one but I’ll summerise best as possible.
       
      THIS IS HOW THE PHONECALL WENT 
       
      I was contacted by future comms by phone, they stated that they could beat any phone contract I have , (I am a limited company but just myself that needs a business phone and I am the only worker) 
      I told future comms my deal, £110 per month with a phone and a virtual landline, they confirmed that they could beat that, £90 per month with a phone , virtual landline  they also confirmed they would pay Vodafone (previous provider) the termination fee. As I am in business, naturally I was open to making a deal. So we proceeded. 
      Future comms then revealed that the contract would be with PLAN.COM and the airtime would be provided by 02, I instantly told them that this would break the deal as I have poor 02 signal in the house where I live as my partner is on 02 and constantly complaining about bad signal
      the salesman assured me he would send a signal booster box out with the phone so I would have perfect signal.
      so far so good.....
      i then explained this is the only mobile phone I use for business and pleasure, so therefore I didn’t want any disconnection time in the slightest between the switchover from Vodafone to 02
      the salesman then confirmed that the existing phone would only be disconnected once the new phone was switched on.
      so far so good....

    • I was talked into signing up with Future Comms (future-comms.co.uk) who cold-called me to change my mobile contract to them, via 02, rather than EE. I have a small business (only me!) and it's a business contract. True, the 4G network is better for my area. This company seemed to be a marketing set-up for various telecoms companies, so I assumed anything I signed would be with 02 and didn't think it might be a problem.
       
      They sent an email whilst I was on the phone to set up the direct debit mandate with my bank which I signed electronically. That was the first, of many, problems I found. Apparently THAT was my contract, binding me to 3 years and no 'cooling off' period, because I was a 'business' (meaning any consumer rights did not apply). When I subsequently asked in writing for a copy of my contract, that is what they sent - when I argued it was a DD mandate they insisted it was my contract!
       
      2 days later they asked for my phone details to get it unlocked which I sent. 10 days later, EE closed my account, so I changed the SIM card to 02 that had come a few days before. No network! They had done nothing about unlocking it. Fortunately I was lucky with EE who managed to give me the right codes, rather than the usual 10 days to go through Samsung.
       
      By this time I was suspicious of their set-up and wanted to cancel. As I said earlier, I found myself trapped into a 3 year contract with no 14 day cooling off period (they don't offer that). Promises to deal with my complaints never happened, promised return calls neither....and on and on.
       
      Ofcom's rules apply to consumers and small businesses (under 10 employees), yet this shower don't acknowledge that. They just repeat and repeat that I am a business so it doesn't apply. To cancel the contract I have to pay the full 3 year's fees!!
       
      I would like to know if others have had similar experiences? Or does anyone know how I can maybe declare the 'contract' unenforceable? I have never before been locked into something without a clear written contract, with t&c's! And, yes, I have asked, and yes, I have been ignored.
