    • There have been significant developments today, and unfortunately, they are not good.   Firstly, myself and other people that have looked at and contributed to this thread would have assumed that Lowell would have discontinued, after taking it right to the wire, however, this appears not to be the case.  It looks like they are going for it big style.   Secondly, I was reading the threads last night, a credit agreement exactly the same as mine was taken to Court and a Judge said it was enforceable and the defendant lost the case.  That knocked the stuffing out of me quite a lot.   Thirdly, and most seriously, I was having a word with my line manager at work (who is also a good friend) this afternoon.  He told me (off the record) that I was putting my job at risk if I lose the case.  Apparently, anyone who gains a CCJ is duty bound to declare it and disciplinary proceedings will follow.  I do not work in the financial sector where I know this is commonplace, but I work with confidential and sensitive information and was told that my employer will think that I am vulnerable to bribery and corruption.  Apparently they will take defaults into account, (I did have a couple of defaults when I first started), but a CCJ is a big no no.  I did not know this as I would not have let things get anywhere near this far.  I was told to get this sorted ASAP.  My stress and anxiety levels are now through the roof.   How I wished now I had just arranged that damn Tomlin Order with them a couple of weeks ago.  If I knew then, what I know now, it would have been a "no brainer".  I do not want to gamble with my job. Where I live, jobs are very hard to find.  I could end up jobless and homeless for just one "appointment" with the Judge.  I simply cannot take the risk.   So where do I go from here?  Is it too late to go for the Tomlin Order as the hearing is on Friday.  It would solve all of my problems at the moment and help me keep my job and my home.    I have no savings, no property and my reasonable expenditure is just about my income, so they could not get much out me.  Perhaps £10 a month is the maximum I could afford.  I feel now I have burnt my boats and I am at their mercy.  I absolutely hate them with a passion.  But I also hate myself, as I should have researched fully the consequences of my job.   Is there any way I can sort this mess out before it's too late?  Any ideas would be most welcome.  
    • Did you sign a personal guarantee? Have you a copy of the ccj? is it in your name or the ltd company name?   https://cse.google.com/cse?cx=partner-pub-8889411648654839:3134625398&q=Limited company ccj&oq=Limited company ccj&gs_l=partner-generic.12...23159.34137.0.36634.19.19.0.0.0.0.308.4270.0j3j15j1.19.0.gsnos%2Cn%3D13...0.10977j7667391j19...1j4.34.partner-generic..19.0.0.OY00NBTWR3U
    • Thanks dx100uk  ....  Thought not, but just checked to be sure and no neither one used ...  A parking/penalty slip, and in just the above post only.
    • Admiral probably won't offer near £3600. They are most likely to offer lower end of value shown in Glasses guide. Then you will have the excess deducted from the amount.   Always up to policyholder to negotiate the market value by providing evidence of similar cars for sale locally. Details of condition of the car pre accident etc.    Depending on the damage you can always get a local garage or AA/RAC to carry out an inspection and report on damage/costs of repair. But they may charge you and the Insurers won't cover costs of your inspection report.   Insurers don't mess around with repairs over a certain value, as can be a pain, as they would be liable for more repairs if policyholder unhappy after initial repair or damage was missed.   The £100 injury cover i thought was not cover for actual injury. I thought this was cover if you incurred costs due to be injured e.g. ambulance call charge.    Cannot really criticise Admiral as what you have been told by them appears to be correct. Unfortunately most people don't realise how Insurance works until they need to claim.

PRA PAP Letter of Claim - old Joint LLoyds OD account

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

PRA have been sending letters for a while asking to repay this debt.

I don't deny the debt, i want through some financial difficulty and couldn't afford to pay. 

 

At one point they offered 30% off.

But now I have this letter and the threat of court action seems very real.

What can I do now?

 

Ideally i would borrow the money from a relative and pay the 30% off number they came to me with.

If i go to them with this I think they will say 'stuff you we want the whole lot'.

Does anyone have any advice?

Hi there, thanks for the quick reply.

 

It looks to be a standard letter:

We write to you advising acocunt has been xferred to legal dept.

This is a letter before claim as required by practice direction on pre-action conduct and protocols contained in the civil procedure rules. This letter is teh formal demand for £2500 and to give you notice of PRA intention to take you to court.

The sumn owed is the original debt of £2500 plus interest of 0 and fees of 0

Since you did not repond you have become liable for the sum of £2500

 

Then there are some sections with boxes to fill out

Section A

I owe the debt OR

i owe some but not all of it OR

i dont know whether i owe teh debt OR

I dispute the debt

 

Section B

I will pay what i owe now OR

i will pay but i need time to pay

 

Section C

I intend on getting debt advice

 

Section D

I have provided documents OR

I need more documents or information

 

The debt was to Lloyds Bank now with PRA for around £2500 for an overdraft. We entered into an agreement with Lloyds to pay £1 per month, then after a year or so they sent us a letter saying they are transferring the debt to PRA group

-Can you clarify what is meant by 'debt type'?

-Original Creditor was lloyds bank

-When you say credit file, is that a creit report, like Experian? I'm sure i have seen it on there yes

-Defaulted date was around four years ago. Definitely not over six years ago

-We have a one pund a month standing order set up to Lloyds bank that gets transferred to PRAs account somehow.

-This is for an overdraft with Lloyds

 

-We had an overdraft with Llloys, but then moved banks in August 2015.

Obviously you cant take an overdraft to another bank,

so Lloyds asked us to pay back the £2500

 

-We set up a £1 per month repayment scheme in Feb 2016

 

-First letter from PRA is June 2017

 

-Check credit report, and its on there for my wife, but not for me.

 

Dont know if its worth noting:

-This was a joint account between my wife and I.

Lloyd were referencing us both,

but when PRA took it over,

they have only ever referenced my wife.

' it'll never get statute barred '

This is devistating news. We were advised by a debt advice service to set up £1 payments. That has royally screwed us now.

We were hoping all our debts would get statute barred after six years.

 

I did send a template letter to Lloyds, I cant recall what it was for. I'm sure it was asking them to prove the debt is ours type of letter (which we knew it was ours anyway)

I opened the account in 1998.

 

I dont believe any of it is charges and interest, as it was a planned overdraft.

Some of the advice given by these 'Debt advice companies' is really bad.

 

Good advice to SAR Lloyds, all the late payment charges, plus interest on them, once you run them through the interest calculator will probably add up to a very significant amount.

PRA have given me 30 days to reply. What if the Lloyds SAR takes longer than that to come back?

3.4 If the debtor does not reply to the Letter of Claim within 30 days of the date at the top of the letter, the creditor may start court proceedings, subject to any remaining obligations the creditor may have to the debtor (for example, under the Financial Conduct Authority’s Handbook). Account should be taken of the possibility that a reply was posted towards the end of the 30-day period.

 

---

 

4.2 If the debtor indicates that they are seeking debt advice, the creditor must allow the debtor a reasonable period for the advice to be obtained. In any event, the creditor should not start court proceedings less than 30 days from receipt of the completed Reply Form or 30 days from the creditor providing any documents requested by the debtor, whichever is the later.

 

4.3 If the debtor indicates in the Reply Form that they are seeking debt advice that cannot be obtained within 30 days of their reply, the debtor must provide details to the creditor as specified in the Reply Form. The creditor should allow reasonable extra time for the debtor to obtain that advice where it would be reasonable to do so in the circumstances.

 

4.4 A partially completed Reply Form should be taken by the creditor as an attempt by the debtor to engage with the matter. The creditor should attempt to contact the debtor to discuss the Reply Form and obtain any further information needed to understand the debtor’s position.

Thankyou everyone for your help thus far :)

 

On another topic,

the debt was originally from a joint bank account overdraft, for my wife and i.

All the time PRA have been contacting us, its been in my wifes name.

 

I dont know anything about the debt collection world, so bear with me here.

But is this reason to get the whole debt written off?

 

As they technically havent been writing to the corect persons.

I know I'm clutching at straws here.
