Default Notice Query

Recommended Posts

Hello All

 

Have been looking at other threads regarding default notices and just needed some further advice. 

 

In summary, I opened 2 Shop Direct Accounts (Littlewoods and Very) around 2010. I was maintaining my accounts until late 2011 when I feel into financial difficulties. I had a debt management plan in December 2011 and maintained payments until about June 2015 when there was another dip in my finances. 

 

Whilst I was on a debt management plan the Very account was purchased by Arrow Global Ltd in December 2012 and the Littlewoods account purchased by them in August 2013. 

 

Around Marc/April 2018 when I was trying to get a grip with my finances I noticed that a default had been registered on both account in 2015. This confused me as I thought that there was default registered on them both in 2011 shortly before my Debt Management Plan was set up. 

 

I don’t remember receiving a default notice from Arrow Global Ltd, but it could be that I did but didn’t pay any attention to it. 

 

I did complain to the Ombudsman about the default date, but received a response from the Ombudsman in November 2018 not upholding my complaint stating that when Arrow Global Ltd purchased the accounts there was no default and that a default was only registered after they did not receive any payments. 

 

I saw in another thread that a poster had said that a default could only be registered by the original creditor. 

 

Therefore, my question is were Arrow Global Ltd entitled to register a default on these accounts?

Send  Data Subject Access Request to Littlewoods/Very and see if there was a default in 2011...there should have been if 3 or more reduced payment were made.Sometimes also when you enter into a DMP the default Marker can be suspended.

Ok I will send a SAR. 

 

From the Ombudsman’s own investigation apparently no default was registered in 2011.

 

There was apparently debt management markers on my account when purchased by Arrow Global Ltd and the Ombudsman didn’t feel it would be reasonable for the default date to be amended to 2011 as Arrow Global Ltd didn’t own the account at the time.

in 2011 the guidelines by the ICO had not changed, that didn't happen till 2014

so SD should have issued a default notice at the 3rd missed/short payment.
