    • Hi   Fire Protection isn't just for cladding fire proofing doors etc it also includes Annual Fire Inspections which all add to costs.   Water Charge for the communal boiler fault managed by SSE It would depend how your housing association has setup the contract with SSE. (sounds as if you have a Combined Heat and Power system (CHP)) if this is the case my own Housing Association also has this its the largest CHP in the UK still and it is run and managed by SSE right down to they repair faults at their cost not the tenants its how the contract was setup). As said it would depend on how your HA setup the contract with SSE.   If it is a CHP system and the fault as you have describe these are not cheap to repair/get a replacement parts. (my own HA CHP covers thousands of properties and has three boilers two are constantly used the third is and emergency backup/used if maintenance on others required.)   If all tenants are being charged this £200-£300 have the HA added this as a Service Charge as part of your Rent Statement?   I am a HA Tenant and if I had this as a HA Tenant myself I certainly would be challenging it with the HA as such costs should have been budgeted for in the HA Budget Plan.   Do you have a Tenants Committee/Registered Tenants Organisation (RTO) if so as well as complaint to the HA I would also inform them of this   With your letter Make sure and Title it 'Formal Complaint' this way they have to log it as a complaint which in turn in turn must be added to the HA return to the Regulator.   Only if you consider getting together with other tenants as a Group to complain about this the best advice I will give you is always complain individual as well as a Group. (note: why you ask well individually as stated they have to log all those complaints but as a Group its only one complaint logged the Group one)
    • ukcps just a typo martin.   you don't really have to really worry   just sit tight and await to see if they issue a letter of claim or action.   the landlord will have copies of everything if the renters didn't fwd it on as they should do.

    • I’m in desperate need of help
       
      I bought some clothes online in may through Evans and paid through PayPal
      returned them all seven days later
       
      I waited the 14days for my refund and no refund came
      I put in a dispute through PayPal but I didn’t get any emails to escalate the case - PayPal closed it. 
      evans said they couldn’t refund the money because PayPal have cancelled the refund because of the open dispute
       
      I contacted PayPal
      they said the dispute had been closed but Evans at no point had attempted a refund.
      fast forward to today
       
      I’ve got copies of numerous messages sent to and from twitter messages as it’s the only way I can contact them
      I’ve also contacted their customer service too
      all I get is PayPal have cancelled refund because dispute is still open.
       
      I have proved that the dispute is closed
      I have got an email saying that if Evans sent the refund they would accept it
      but up until the date I got the email they have not once attempted a refund .
       
       I have sent them a letter before court email
      I have even offered to have the full refund as a gift card just to get this sorted !
       
      I’m literally at the end of my tether and don’t know where to turn next !
       
      i suffer with mental health issues and this is affecting my health and I’d saved the money for a year to buy these clothes as I’m on a low income .

My Credit File no longer shows my big debts


Recommended Posts

I just arrived here to try and work out what is happening to me, could be the Pandemic is the reason.

 

I have access to Clear Score and MSE Credit Club which I think use the same data, I have been on previous 'free' systems until they closed down.

I used to use them to see how much I still owe, that was useful.  I had a mountain of debt but over last 4-5 years I been getting them down to two left.

 

My biggest one is with Natwest who them let it go to another and then Caboot.

It's no longer on my file as of last month, why? I don't get it.

 

The only other change is I got a PPI agent to send letters out and that's all I can think of as I had a payment for Barclays but Natwest I never heard anything.

 

1: Has Caboot Gone?

2: Has Credit Files been somewhat 'paused' while we going thru a pendemic?

3: Do I stop the automatic low weekly payment?

once a defaulted date reaches its 6th birthday the whole account disappears.

if everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's tomorrow

the biggest financial industry in the UK, DCA;s -  would collapse overnight.

 

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs - that's why they will never tell you they are not bailiffs and have absolutely zero legal powers on any debt.

I suspect I will study the latest info as I not been on a site like this for a long while... way I look at it is if I owe something I should pay it back to get my credit in shape.  

Yes 6th birthday is likely, but when you used to look at the reports, you would see it marked as 'default' for each month regardless if paid or not, maybe I am miss-reading as I have been paying and is up to date.  I always presumed that the last month was registered as a default and the six years would be from there.

Disappears off your credit file for ever, invisible to anyone, without any evidence that it ever existed on the 6 th anniversary of its default.

 

it stopped affecting your credit score years ago. If you are still paying anything you are a mug!

 

Sorry to sound harsh but it’s true.

We could do with some help from you.

forget the calender section no-one bar you and the owner of a debt can see that

its the defaulted date in the debt summary it runs from...

 

so you've been blindly paying DCA's money because you thought paying your debts off improved your score and/or that they have some magical powers and were BAILIFFS, which a DCA is NOT

they have zero legal powers on ANY debt.

 

list your debts, showing or not

But to be fair DCA’s love to sound and act like bailiffs, and there is zero information out there to say otherwise . Which is why you have been very fortunate to stumble across this site, where we can tell you that it’s an utter and complete waste of your hard earned cash paying those charlatans!

 

As for your credit score , that’s about as useful as a chocolate fire guard.

No MSE and Clearscore dont use the same Data

 

Credit Karma - Transunion 

Clearscore - Equifax

MSE CC - Experian. 

 

Your milage will vary with each. Go check with all 3 :) 

Also try to get your report direct from Equifax - Its been known for Clearscore to be inaccurate sometimes
