KPMG trying to offset debt to Lantern

Recommended Posts

Hi CAG, I have received a redress email from KPMG ref redress due to me from an old WDA account.

 

I did have an account with WDA which went into arrears and was sold to MM/Lantern. The debt is now stat barred and MM/Lantern have written the debt off as such.

 

kPMG are stating that they will set off the amount of my redress to MM/Lantern.  I have complained to them about this and await their reply.

 

I am aware of the normal set off rules but does this apply to companies in administration? I can’t attach the section of the letter now as I’m on holiday but as far as I’m aware a company cannot off set a debt once it’s been sold to a 3rd party company, am I correct in this thinking?

 

thanks

Depends if there is an outstanding balance.

You cant be refunded something you didnt pay.

And the balance was closed to £0? 

If so - You are due that money.

There is no "Balance" to offset to. It would put the Debt Account into credit in this case.

I know that DX, but the thing I’m on about is a company trying to off set a debt against a debt that is now owned by a 3rd party

This may help:

But if the debt was sold on to a third party and it cannot be bought back, or the business chooses not to buy it back, we might take a slightly different approach. That is because the consumer does not owe the business money - it owes money to the third party that bought the debt instead.

 

When selling the debt the business made a commercial decision and accepted an agreeable price for the debt.

 

In those circumstances, we would usually tell the business to calculate the compensation as normal at the point it sold on the debt - and to pay all parts of the compensation to the consumer.

 

The business should also consider the possibility that the consumer might have incurred further losses since the debt was sold on as a result of PPI being included on their debt.

I would also say that under common law the obligation is still with the original creditor, as it is unaffected by the sale.

If he physically paid the sums they want to offset then no it must goto t to him.

but if its just notional stuff they wrote off then no.he is not entitled to it.

The total of the loans I took was 1100 I paid back 2200 but I defaulted on 800 apparently, the amount of redress I’m being offered Is 1400

total loans with interest was £1100 or was that what you borrowed and int is on top of the £1100..so what was the actual figure you should have paid if the loans had run their natural course and been paid on time?

 

this £800 could be these unlawful charges etc they levied at the time so you didn't actually pay them,

they are now after the ruling [like an IRL complaint] having to 'give them back' 

so £800 is not yours you never paid it, they simply levied it at the time...

 

the remaining £600 puzzles me, if they are saying they made you pay £600 too much then that's surely yours..you did pay it and they cant offset to anyone. if you get my weird logic

From my views here - When i wrote the IRL Guide originally i included the part about the FOS and their guidance.

It can be retrospectively used for IRL.

You should be entitled to all the money back.

 

But with the Administration are you actually going to get back £1400??

Yes, I agree, all money paid plus 8% on the premiums paid and any contractual interest due to the account being overdrawn (nominal account in credit)because of unpaid premiums,.

If you make a fuss and insist the money is paid to you they may agree to save any hassle. 

 

If this redress was awarded through the FOS though, I'm certain they would have told the business to clear the debt they sold before any redress gets paid to you.

 

They have a different approach on Payday loans compared to PPI, it's about putting you in the position you would be in if you didn't take any loans out.

 

Lots of examples on the decision database of them deciding the lender should buy back the account or pay redress to the third party. I don't agree with it but it is the approach they take.

    • 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....

    • The FSA has announced large fines against DB UK Bank Limited (trading as DB Mortgages) - DeutscheBank and also against Redstone for their unfair treatment of their customers.
      Please see the links below for summaries and full details from the FSA website.
      It is now completely clear that any arrears charges which exceed actual administrative costs are unfair and therefore unlawful.
      Furthemore, irresponsible lending practices are also unfair and unlawful.
      Additionally there are other unfair practices including unarranged counsellor visits - even if they have been attempted.
      You are entitled to refuse counsellor visits and not incur any charges.
      Any charges for counsellor visits must not seek to make profits. The cost of the visits must be passed on to you at cost price.
      We are hearing stories of people being charged for counsellor visits for which there is no evidence that they were even attempted.
      It is clear that some mortgage lenders are trying to cheat you out of your money.
      You should ascertain how much has been taken from you and claim it back. The chances of winning are better than 90%. It is highly likely that the lender will attempt to avoid court action and offer you back your money.
      However, you should ensure that you receive a proper rate of interest and this means that you should be seeking at least restitutionary damages - which would be much higher than the statutory 8%.
      Furthermore, you should assess whether the paying of demands for unlawful excessive charges has also out you further into arrears and if this has caused you further penalties in terms of extra interest or any other prejudice. This should be claimed as well.
      If excessive unlawful charges have resulted in your credit file being affected, then you should take this into account also when working out exactly what you want by way of remedy from the lender.
      You should consult others on these forums when considering any offer.
      You must not make any complaint through the Ombudsman. your time will be wasted, you will wait up to 2 yrs and there will be a minimal 8% award of interest and no account will be taken of any other damage you have suffered.
      You must make your complaint through the County Court for a rapid and effective remedy.
