Intrum chasing my late wife's JDW CAT debt


Recommended Posts

Some advice please on how to handle this.

 

My wife passed away on the 7th June 2020

 

was going through her desk I found letters from Intrum about a debt she had accrued with JD Williams Ltd a catalogue shop to the tune of £2850.02.

I know nothing about this and I have never seen anything come from J D Williams Ltd.

 

today I had another letter from Intrum asking me to allow them to place a charging Order on the property.

I have no idea if a default notice has been sent or if a CCJ has been sort.

 

Should I send an Account in Dispute letter to Intrum?

Send a Subject Access Request Letter to J.D Williams Ltd

 

Any advice welcome please

 

Thank You

  • dx100uk changed the title to Intrum chasing my late wife's JDW CAT debt

typical tactics for 1st credit now intrum

have you got her credit file?

if not go get it and see if they've sneaked in a backdoor CCJ.?

 

it could just be that they were after her and you signing a voluntary charge without going through a court claim.

 

nasty lot sadly.

dont do anything for the minute regarding them

lets get info 1st then we will attack or simply ignore them

What type of joint ownership was the property, were you joint tenants or tenants in common?

Did you wife leave any capital in her estate?

 

Where you were joint tenants, the property passes to you and is not considered to be a part of your wife's estate.

 

Where there is capital or equity in her estate, the executor or administrator of her estate would usually need to settle this debt from any capital left after funeral costs.

 

If your wife did not leave an estate of any value, the debt is unenforceable, unless she also has other debts which amount to at least £5000 which haven't been paid.

follow above.

 

use her name and address E&W costs £3

 

if the home was jointly owned and you are obv not part of a joint A/C with JDW then intrum are flying a kite without an existing CCJ in-place and like all her debts , can mostly be ignored , YOU personally are not responsible for settling them.

I have just checked Trustonline NO CCJ's listed.

 

I remembered checking my Creditkarma report and seeing a mistake on the Financial Associates It states that my wife has a Lloyd's Bank Account (Wrong) she has only had two accounts one with Barclays and one with HSBC.

Thank You for the replies. Seems for now I can forget Intrum.

 

But I still want to get some information from JDW to see if the debt was my wife's, so I will Send a SAR's letter JDW.

As mentioned, you are not personally liable for any consumer credit debt which is in your wife's sole name just because you are her husband. But depending on the value of her estate, as the executor, you are legally obliged to settle outstanding debts owed by her estate where there is capital available to do so. It's not simply a case of 'you are not liable, there is nothing Intrum can do', as the executor you could be held personally liable if you did not fulfill your obligations correctly.

The day after my wife passed away I started to contact her creditors and explained that as autopsy need to be carried out I could not send them a death certificate.

 

About a week later I heard from the coroner that tissue samples had to be sent to the lab for testing and that she could issue an interim Death Certificate

 

I sent copies of this to all her creditors and explained that there was not any money in her estate. All but Intrum wrote off the debt. 

 

However, there was a small amount of money in her bank accounts. She was in receipt of PIPS and state pension this does need to be paid back and is in a separate bank account waiting to be reclaimed.

 

The state pension went into her bank account the day after she died. Her pip's went in a few weeks before so not sure how much needs to be paid back on that. But they have been notified of her death and payments have been cancelled.
