Best actions on old debts - help please

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

Have looked through a few threads to get an idea of what to do in regard to clearing all my outstanding debts, 

7 in total as follow below,

that all date back to 2004 and earlier.

 

And have been with CCCS/Step Change on a DMP since 2006

now as a pensioner at the age of 71,

I need  to find the best way to proceed,

to clear all these debts finally, 

up until now have being paying back £5 per month on each of the 7 debts via Step Change

 

Now planned to cancel my long standing arrangement with Step Change at the end of this month (May ’19) to move things on

Plus I have already sent to 5 of the DCA’s a CCA request to start with (see below)

Am now hoping I can be helped by the forum with some good advice on how to eventually resolve these long term debts in the best possible way?

 

Details of my debts follow.

 

First Direct (Over-draught) £4,440

Was forwarded onto Metropolitan –> Hoist –> now with Robinson Way, paying £5 p/m via S/Change to Robinson Way

Robinson Way offered a 50% settlement by letter 27/9/18 (I did not reply)

Not showing on my credit reports (am actively looking through old paperwork for a default notice)

CCA sent to Robinson Way on 13/5/2019

 

Barclay Card (C/Card) £3,470

Was forwarded onto IDR Finance –> now with Link, paying £5 p/m via S/Change to Link

C/Score shows B/Card in the closed accounts and £0, and a Link entry of £3470 with no payment history dated Oct 2013

Noodle shows just a Link open entry for £3470 defaulted on 31/10/2013

Experian shows B/Card settled with £0 on 24/10/13 – then Link with £3470 and defaulted 31/10/13  (am actively looking through old paperwork for a default notice)

CCA sent to Link on 10/5/2019

 

CO-OP (C/Card) £3,330

Was forwarded onto Link Sept 2013, paying £5 p/m via S/Change to Link

C/Score shows CO-OP in closed accounts £0 owing and last payment dated Sept 2013

Noodle no entry

Experian shows CO-OP settled with £0 on 5/9/13 last updated 9/7/2017, and no entry for Link

Have a default notice from CO-OP dated 11 May 2011

CCA sent to Link on 13/5/2019

 

Halifax (C/Card) £2860

Date of default 29/07/2008 (£4,176)

Was forwarded onto Westcot –> now with PRA Group, paying £5 p/m via S/Change to PRA

Not showing on my credit reports (am actively looking through old paperwork for a default notice)

CCA sent to PRA Group on 10/5/19

 

Virgin/MBNA (C/Card) £1,180

Was forwarded onto Moorgate–> now with Cabot, paying £5 p/m via S/Change to Cabot

Cabot offered 45% settlement 26/3/2019 (I did not reply)

Not showing on my credit reports (am actively looking through old paperwork for a default notice)

CCA sent to Cabot on 10/5/2019

 

Tesco/RBS (Loan) £2,140

Was forwarded onto Incasso –> DWF–> now with Shoosmiths Solicitors, paying £5 p/m via S/Change Shoosmiths

Tesco on a 6mth basis send invoice updates of account

Not showing on my credit reports (am actively looking through old paperwork for a default notice)

No CCA sent as yet, who should I send one to, Tesco or Shoosmiths?

 

EGG (C/Card) £7,500

Moved to Barclay Card with EGG collapse, paying £5 p/m via S/Change to Barclay Card

Date of default 22/11/2006 (£12,072)

A CCA was sent to Barclay Card in 2012, was advised (have letter) no CCA available and that the debt was unenforceable, but mentioned action could be possible taken. CCCS at the time advised that I continue to pay on my DMP, so have since.

Not showing on my credit reports (am actively looking through old paperwork for any default notice)

Please advise the best action on this and the other 6 debts?

 

 

As it now seems looking at the forum that I have being “cash cowed?”... On several of my debts, and just wished I had done something sooner about my situation.

 

I had in 2012 sent out some CCA’s but as it seemed and was advised there was not much I could do then;

I did not take any further actions, due to my then situation and did not want to rock the boat!

 

I now though just want to get some clarity on what is the best thing to do, and will appreciate any help given.

Apologises if my story is rather long, I just wanted to give as much detail as possible to the forum.

 

Thanks

welcome back

what was your old username please?

 

pers i'd stop paying the OD debt totally as long as hoist know your correct address if you've moved since taking this OD out?

the rest yes CCA request time as you've done

yes I suspect 90% of these debts are cash cowers so give it a few months and you could see most of these wiped out.

Hi thanks for the quick reply!

 

And the welcome back greeting...  re my original 2012 username and the one I'm still using it's "Gator"

 

As for OD debt have sent the CCA request to Robinson Way with  all the details of my new address on it,  which was not  my original address back in 2006, should I now notify Hoist also of the address change, or is it all the same company and no need?

And as I'm stopping DMP with Step Change in June, no payments will be made to any of the 7 debts, so no payments will be going to Hoist/RW

 

Hopefully as mentioned most  of these debts will be wiped out in the coming months!

 

RE:  Tesco/Shoosmith debt, what/who should I contact (CCA?) them,  or just not do nothing, as yet? 

 

All your help appreciated

Hi

re: you cant cca bank accounts? And the info about Hoist/RW ..thanks!


Ok I'll wait and see what they do/say then, or is there any other action I should take?

 

And re:

Tesco debt don't have any paper work for Shoosmiths,

just know that they are the name shown on the Step Change payments.

 

Like you say if Tesco's are still sending payment invoices etc, then they are  presumably still the debt owners?

 

What's best to do here?

 

Contact Tesco/Shoosmiths with a CCA or just wait?

 

Thanks 

Gator

Hi

Listed below is an update to the latest situation known with debts as of 1st June 2019

 

And as you can see I have now  as planned cancelled my Debt Management Plan (DMP), which had dated back to Oct 2006 with CCCS/Stepchange on all these debts

 

Would  therefore gladly appreciate any help as to what actions I should be doing next, especially with the Halifax/Lloyds - (PRA Group) credit card debt, as described below?

 

Thanks for  help given

 

Gator

 

 

Details of debts follow:

 

First Direct (Over-draught) £4,440

Not showing on my credit reports (am actively looking through old paperwork for a default notice)

CCA sent to Robinson Way on 13/5/2019

 

Update

Robinson Way sent a letter dated 16/5/19 which is an acknowledgement advising that the account is now on hold, until requested documents have been found/sent
DMP now cancelled with Stepchange

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Barclay Card (C/Card) £3,470

defaulted by Link on 31/10/2013

CCA sent to Link on 10/5/2019

 

Update

No reply from Link to date
DMP now cancelled with Stepchange

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

CO-OP (C/Card) £3,330

Have a default notice from CO-OP dated 11 May 2011

CCA sent to Link on 13/5/2019

 

Update

No reply from Link to date
DMP now cancelled with Stepchange

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Halifax/Lloyds (C/Card) £2860

Date of default 29/07/2008

CCA sent to PRA Group on 10/5/19

 

Update

PRA sent an acknowledgement letter and advised account on hold dated 14/05/19 + the £1 PO was returned

On the 28/5/19 PRA sent a photocopy of the original signed agreement and appears reconstructed documents of the credit card terms and conditions etc

And asking me to please contact their office within 10 days of receipt of this letter and agents will discuss account and  help come to a mutually acceptable agreement  for settling outstanding balance

A further letter from PRA arrived later and not dated, saying the account was on hold and that they would be in contact to provide an update

Note: The last 2 letters sent both have my new address details incorrect, even though I had given them my new address details when I requested the CCA.

They have my road name wrong and also my town name is spelt incorrectly?

And it’s only down it seems to a good postman that I have received both of them, as the postcode and my name is at least correct!….

 

Question)  What  action should I now do re any contact with PRA?  

And should I advise (via post) PRA of their address details mistake?
DMP now cancelled with Stepchange

Virgin/MBNA (C/Card) £1,180

Cabot offered a 45% settlement 26/3/2019 (I did not reply)

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Tesco/RBS (Loan) £2,140

Was forwarded onto Shoosmiths Solicitors for administration

Not showing on my credit reports (am actively looking through old paperwork for a default notice)

 

Update

CCA sent to Tesco’s on 30/5/19 and a copy to Shoosmiths for their reference
No reply yet as only sent  just recently
DMP now cancelled with Stepchange

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hi

Thanks for your advice and will start a new thread in the hbos forum very shortly and as requested I have uploaded the CCA return documents from PRA Group for your inspection

 

Please re-advice, will any action needed re the mistakes PRA have with my address details?

 

And yes only early days, but hopefully the cash cowing is now starting to stop

 

Your encouragement and advice is appreciated

Hi 

have  now received a letter from Cabot dated 27th May 2019 after a CCA request was sent for on my old Virgin/MBNA debt 

 

Letter reads: We're  still processing your request, we have contacted the original lender for the relevant information. As we have been unable to provide you with the information you have requested, your Credit Agreement is unenforceable until we are able to reply to your request.

 

This means we are not permitted to obtain a judgement or decree against you in Court

 

Letter then goes on to say, thank you for making payments towards account, please continue making payments!

 

As my payments have  now been stopped with Stepchange, this will not be the case

 

Any comments appreciated re Cabot letter? ... other than probably do nothing?

 

PS: Re my Halifax/Virgin debt with PRA Group I have  now moved  it to HBOS forum , but the forum administration mentioned that as dx100uk had been  initially been helping with advice etc ...  would therefore possible be the very best hope with any advice I could get with further actions on this issue

Help appreciated

 

Thanks Gator
