    • Hi, where do I find the standard sticky please, I’ve looked but I think I am missing it 🙄
    • Hi Rei and thanks for the update.   Your post confirms what we're telling folk all the time - Harlands/CRS, Zinc and their pet "solicitors" continue to make demands but they fail to do anything substantial to back up their threats.   Hence our continuing advice to NOT respond to demands by letter, email or phone, because they'll do nothing that will affect your credit rating, or that will force you to pay.  
    • Hi GHL and welcome to CAG   You now have your own thread to use from here on ( to avoid hijacking someone else's thread where you first posted).   I assume there were 2 separate m/ships and not a joint m/ship, but please confirm.   I hope you've read other threads here which should help you understand how Harlands/CRS operate. They use every opportunity to make far more money from missed payments and penalty fees, than what they make from taking a percentage fee from ongoing monthly gym fees.   Yours was a rolling monthly m/ship so you only needed to give them notice to quit but there was no minimum 12 month term. Hence all you owe them is £19.99 each.   Write a letter to Harlands, each of you :- 1. Offering to pay the £19.99 for the notice period you failed to give 2. Offer valid for 14 days only. 3. Offer withdrawn if they fail to accept, or if they demand any higher amount.   Post a draft of your letter here first so we can check it.    Letter(s) should be sent from the PO and get a free Certificate of Posting from the PO Counter.  
    • King I fully understand the mother was living there on her own and only one named on the tenancy agreement.   As for your comment that after informed of the passing in a few days they pack tenants belongings and store them and change the locks this I completely disagree with.   In my are the different HA (and there are many) in a scenario like this will:   Communicate with the executor/family member once informed of bereavement informing them of any succession rights, property to be handed back ( 28 days on being informed of above) if unable to must notify the HA to ask for an extension.   After the 28 days if no contact the HA will then follow its Abandonment Policy.   If contact made after 28 days and no extension has been granted HA will then go to court to claim property back.   Once this is done and no contact off to court to claim property back only then will the enter the property unless in an emergency or legally required i.e. gas safety inspection even then may need to go to court for that to get access.

Arrows/Shoos Pre legal Letter - old MBNA debt

Recommended Posts

Hi there ,

 

Received a letter from gobal arrow 2nd of may stating they handed my debt to shoosmiths solicitors for collection.

The account was opened 2005 with mbna and defaulted i think 2008 when made unemployed  Balance £2200.

 

I paid a few token payments for a while to various DCAs but then stopped 2012/13 trying to track for sure with bank .

 

They sent a second letter 22may with 7 day countdown saying they're going legal if arrangement not made.

 

If checked my credit file and there is no defaults present or dates so its dropped off but i don t know when.

 

My credit file has been excellent for the last 5 years with every payment to date now afraid of a reset.

 

Any advice as i am unsure how to approach this .

 

Thanks

as long as the letter is not entitled letter of/before claim' you are safe to ignore it...

 

however, have you moved since taking this card out and have not/did not since inform in writing to either MBNA or a DCA that you moved...thus they have from YOU notification of your correct address?

No i have not changed address in 20 plus years.

 

The letters however threw me as out of the blue and i was worried about court action messing up my credit file again.

 

I dont see letter of/before claim but i do see we will issue court proceeding for the full sum in seven days!.

 

I do think thought the debt isnt barred 6 months left maybe ,trying to track it down as most paper work is scraped.

gave you ever sent them a CCA request?

if not do so.

 

it will be difficult for them, if things with MBNA stuff go the usual way, for them to come up with enforceable signed agreement & the correct T&C's

with the potential of no enforceable paperwork

I doubt they'll go near a courtroom door.

I post of a cca request with PO on monday and see what happens then.

 

I was going to offer a part settlement to close quick due to the lack of paper work my end as everything been skipped relating to 2008 and unemployment period.

 

Their first letter offered a solution of a part settlement or payments form global arrow/shoosmiths.

 

Sorry for going a bit but the speed at their operating at 3 letters in 21days out of the blue.

After hearing nothing for years.

you NEVER offer PS it opens you up to 6more yrs of harassment as you've ack'd the debt and they'll sell the rest on.

 

just do the CCA..

 

its probably very close to SB

so they leave things late to get the most interest out of you. if they issue a backdoor CCJ.
