DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

 

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

 

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...

Christ, they did him a massive favour not accepting him for an IVA. It's like using a JCB to crack a nut in his situation. Totally innapropriate.

We could do with some help from you.

There will regret it when they start to understand that the OP has started to take control and that most of the money won't be paid.

I have only been helping him since Creditfix     and the IVA,  so nothing of his comes here, I only helped as I have a computer and he is pretty useless

 

I have enough to sort out of my own atm,,

That depends, we don't know for certain that 90% of the debts can be written off as dbx states, that's supposition. If he wanted to apply for insolvency and keep his HP car, an IVA may have been the only option.

he needs the car  to get to and  from work Will, and to see his step daughter and her children, he could not  go bankrupt   , one reason no money to go bankrupt and  he said rather go for an IVA ,DMP or any other option.

 

He has  had car 2 years and  got about 3 years left on it  far as I know

 I honestly do not know what he is  going do, he only get the living wage even though he works long hours,  no extra for overtime and weekends, , he is a delivery  driver,

I will do my best to keep you updated, do not think he has heard back from Creditfix

Forget about Creditfix and an IVA, his creditors voted against it.

 

"It’s good news your IVA has been approved.

 

Please be advised that there is no need to worry and you will be contacted accordingly regarding the outcome."

 

It's a poorly written email as it can be misconstrued without further explanation. The outcome was that creditors rejected Creditfix's 'approved' IVA application. Even so, as he'd already failed a DMP, maintaing payments towards an IVA could've proven difficult for him but he might have shoehorned himself in to an IVA so he could keep the car and eventually write off the debts.

 

While DCAs have no power of enforcement, I disagree that it's nothing to worry about. The IVA proposal is an admission of liablity so unless the debts are already statute barred, there is now six years for creditors to make a money claim against him which would be the next step if they continue to pursue.

 

He can wait around and then try to challenge any money claim or he can actively challenge liability for each debt beforehand which could have some success. A successful money claim would result in a CCJ, and he might already have some CCJs against him so he's vulnerable to an attachment of earnings order unless he's self-employed. He's also at risk of a bankruptcy petition being filed against him.

 

How much is the car worth and how much is left to pay on the HP agreement?

Does he earn a good amount ?  I think you said, he paid for a hotel out of his own money, which must be very expensive, so once he pays for this accommodation, there is not much left ?

 

Might be worth looking for cheaper accommodation and to try to save up some money, just so he has more options.  Can he rent a room in a shared house somewhere ?

hi Uncle, he is  still in the hotel, costs him £220 a week, all he gets is breakfast, he has tried to find somewhere else, even went to the council, said he was homeles but they did not want to know.

He gets  just s the living  wage    for hourly rate, he is contracted for 45 hours, often works  lot more, the first week back  at his work he did 62 hours.

 

He has been looking but   most places need a bond, or a  deposit  or  a months rent up front and sometimes all 3! 

 he  pays £120 a month for his car, he is 60 years old

Some of these debts might be so old that a CCJ has been issued and is now off the register.

So the hotel rent and car repayment add up to about a grand a month, with only about £100 or so to live off per month ?

 

That is no way to live for any length of time. Think he should get advice from housing charity Shelter ASAP. If he could get somewhere to rent for say £500 per month, then he can save a little, so if car needs repairing  or he needs anything essential he has money available.

 

I think the debts are the least of his worries. He has no ability to pay these. The debt owners probably realise this and they are most likely listed as uncollectable.

also  has car tax £22 a month and insurance which is quite high £53 a month, he said he will shop round   when it is due for renewal which is December, plus  has to buy food.

I am sure he is going to view  somewhere over the weekend  but not sure as he is on call on Saturday.

I am not sure when  he will contact me again but I will  show him all the information here, I do know when he was on furlough he was only getting  around £200 a week.

 

 Thank you to all who have helped etc

He should ask council about discretionary housing payments based on his current situation.

What happened?

Did he manage to resolve it?

 

I am interested in the part where creditfix said he was approved, but he wasn't.

 

If you apply for an IVA and it is rejected, does that put a bad mark on your creditfile?

 

My friend recommended an IVA to me, although my debt is nowhere near as much as your friends.

I was going to use a free IVA advisor , who say they will tell me which companies will approve me for an IVA before I apply, but if they say one and I apply and it is not approved, will this have negative consequences?

 

My credit score is already 'poor'. 

 

Thanks!
