    • Dear All,   BN - Thank you for your comments.    My wife had prepared the relevant notice to the court and rather than spending time redacting I am sending it as PM to the contributors to this thread. It covers everything we have been discussing and is in line with  your comments and our discussions.   For the benefit of readers oif CAG I will redact and post it later as we have pressing family medical matters to attend to.    Warm regards BF  
    • Maybe have a third chamber, The Peoples' House 😃
    • Thanks for the images. It's shocking. This more than ever reinforces my view that you should take this to court. The number of people they must be fobbing off with this three months story is incredible – and they need pulling into line. If you simply complain to the CEO then they may sort out your problems – but the rest of it will go on as usual. They need something very serious here. In fact, I would think about suing them for £200 because I think that once they realise about the mistake they are making, they will be extremely anxious not to go to court. On the basis of this, I'm afraid I don't think I would even alert the CEO. I would send a letter of claim which will probably simply be seen by drones – and then issue the papers. I think you have an easy win on this case. Also, once they realise that they are dealing with a court case, they will look at the whole situation more carefully and they will probably sort out all of the problems at the same time. If they don't, then these two have laid down your marker and they will know that you're not mucking around and they will take you seriously.
    • These are the two incidents from Virgin Chat where their Live chat has informed me of the 'only 3 months' decision.... 15 April was the date they acknowledged receipt of my SAR. Apparently anything from before that date can't be included!
    • You could try both routes at the same time. Send your letter of claim by email to the CEO email address. Confirmed by letter. That way you have communicated with the CEO – but given a very definite deadline and a very definite promise as to what will happen if they don't comply. Then on day 15 sent the claim. Don't make a threat of legal action if you don't intend to carry it out. Don't bluff – but it is very easy to do

    • I came across this discussion recently and just wanted to give my experience of A Shade Greener that may help others regarding their boiler finance agreement.
       
      We had a 10yr  finance contract for a boiler fitted July 2015.
       
      After a summer of discontent with ASG I discovered that if you have paid HALF the agreement or more you can legally return the boiler to them at no cost to yourself. I've just returned mine the feeling is liberating.
       
      It all started mid summer during lockdown when they refused to service our boiler because we didn't have a loft ladder or flooring installed despite the fact AS installed the boiler. and had previosuly serviced it without issue for 4yrs. After consulting with an independent installer I was informed that if this was the case then ASG had breached building regulations,  this was duly reported to Gas Safe to investigate and even then ASG refused to accept blame and repeatedly said it was my problem. Anyway Gas Safe found them in breach of building regs and a compromise was reached.
       
      A month later and ASG attended to service our boiler but in the process left the boiler unusuable as it kept losing pressure not to mention they had damaged the filling loop in the process which they said was my responsibilty not theres and would charge me to repair, so generous of them! Soon after reporting the fault I got a letter stating it was time we arranged a powerflush on our heating system which they make you do after 5 years even though there's nothing in the contract that states this. Coincidence?
       
      After a few heated exchanges with ASG (pardon the pun) I decided to pull the plug and cancel our agreement.
       
      The boiler was removed and replaced by a reputable installer,  and the old boiler was returned to ASG thus ending our contract with them. What's mad is I saved in excess of £1000 in the long run and got a new boiler with a brand new 12yr warranty. 
       
      You only have to look at TrustPilot to get an idea of what this company is like.

    • Dazza a few months ago I discovered a good friend of mine who had ten debts with cards and catalogues which he was slavishly paying off at detriment to his own family quality of life, and I mean hardship, not just absence of second holidays or flat screen TV's.
       
      I wrote to all his creditors asking for supporting documents and not one could provide any material that would allow them to enforce the debt.
       
      As a result he stopped paying and they have been unable to do anything, one even admitted it was unenforceable.
       
      If circumstances have got to the point where you are finding it unmanageable you must ask yourself why you feel the need to pay.  I guarantee you that these companies have built bad debt into their business model and no one over there is losing any sleep over your debt to them!  They will see you as a victim and cash cow and they will be reluctant to discuss final offers, only ways to keep you paying with threats of court action or seizing your assets if you have any.
       
      They are not your friends and you owe them no loyalty or moral duty, that must remain only for yourself and your family.
       
      If it was me I would send them all a CCA request.   I would bet that not one will provide the correct response and you can quite legally stop paying them until such time as they do provide a response.   Even when they do you should check back here as they mostly send dodgy photo copies or generic rubbish that has no connection with your supposed debt.
       
      The money you are paying them should, as far as you are able, be put to a savings account for yourself and as a means of paying of one of these fleecers should they ever manage to get to to the point of a successful court judgement.  After six years they will not be able to start court action and that money will then become yours.
       
      They will of course pursue you for the funds and pass your file around various departments of their business and out to third parties.
       
      Your response is that you should treat it as a hobby.  I have numerous files of correspondence each faithfully organised showing the various letters from different DCA;s , solicitors etc with a mix of threats, inducements and offers.   It is like my stamp collection and I show it to anyone who is interested!

Could someone let me know exactly when a statute barred timer starts with student loan defer?

Is 6yrs started when the defer finished or when it was asked for?

 

Also I've noticed when searching for answers a recent "Doyle v PRA Group ruling" in Jan19 for statute barred debt.

Does that affect old student loans?

 

Anyone knowledgeable on this?

Can't find a clear answer elsewhere atm :(

 

For my situation statute bared would be latter part of this year unless that new ruling has any effect.

 

In the meantime drydens have sent some requesated documents following a pap (even though the ones sent have their own issues imo).

 

But my next responses if required,will at least depend on greater knowledge of the s/b situation

 

.Thanks to anyone with any real info in this area.

many threads already here on these Dryden PAP letters

don't pay too much attention to drydens

 

its just a mass money grabbing exercise to see who responds

those that don't, because for one reason or another , like have moved and never updated SLC with their correct address

find themselves with backdoor CCJ's.

 

you indicate you replied to the PAP letter?

How please

post up your reply form with what you put...[read upload..one multipage PDF only please]

hope you used our one and not their from the pack as I've seen they have loaded questions in them.

 

for your initial question.. SB runs from your last deferment return, not its end date.

also if you've not earned over the threshold since then, I wouldn't panic about owing anything anyway

 

 

as for the doyle debacle, when we see people losing due to it, then we might worry.

I believe there has already been atleast one win since doyle , so...

its looking a bit like bmw/hart ….that didn't really actually change anything either

please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

Thank you for the answers dx100uk.

 

About the PAP, yes I responded to it from info I read here (thanks!).

Disputed the debt and asked them for all associated docs, interest charges etc. as recommended in a post here somewhere.

 

Documents were sent to me from Dryden in last 10ish days, which included request for payment by a date this month "if the above [sent documents] clarifies matters" :)

The sent 'original' agreements are not fully legible (poor microfiche?).

And they now conveniently include sigs signed on behalf of SLC,

which were *not* on identical poor copies sent by erudeo a few years back after a CCA request!

 

yes I would have been able to defer each year since the buyout.

The first year I didn't after being told by phone that the old form was unacceptable

- and I had no intention of signing theirs.

 

I chose to dispute the debt (and not respond to them at all plus only in writing until the PAP) for 4ish years since.

when you mention "if you've not earned over the threshold since then, I wouldn't panic about owing anything anyway"

- is back dated deferment because of their wrong doings something I should pursue now?

Or wait until push comes to shove?

 

Thanks again for your help

There are ‘old-style’ and ‘new-style’ student loans. Old-style student loans are for students who started their university course before September 1998. New-style student loans apply to students starting their course from September 1998 onwards.

 

The Limitation Act says that the limitation period for student loans is six years.

 

Old-style student loans usually became due for repayment in the April following the conclusion of your course, and any limitation period could not begin until after you missed a payment on your loan. However, if you asked for your loan to be deferred within the six year limitation period, this would have restarted the limitation period.

 

For new-style student loans, the cause of action is likely to be when your earnings reach the set level at which deductions from your wages can begin. Because the Student Loan Company can take money directly from your wages, it might be more difficult to use the Limitation Act.

so which style is are your ones

I will suspect old style as the gov't hasn't sold on new style ones much yet and certainly not to erudio.

 

there are clear cases here and on the FOS website whereby people would not use that new erudio deferment form because it was too intrusive.

latterly the FOS agree that it was and ruled erudio must remove certain bits.

 

there have been numerous cases whereby backdated SLC deferment forms have been sent, and erudio for want of another word...go away.

 

as long as they have your correct address [which they do as you returned the PAP letter]

id let this run.

 

 

I will suggest the next comms you'll get if this goes as most do, is they'll write and now tell you your loans have 'matured' and are full due .

whatever that really means is another matter that I don't really think erudio know.

but its simply another way to try and spoof some mugs into start paying.

pers I think stepchange have jumped the gun without reading things very carefully regarding doyle.

 

it will be interesting to see what national debtline comment about if at all and most certainly the govan law centre though ofcourse I believe this only effects E&W not Scotland AFAIK so they might not bother either.
