    • Thanks for letting us know about this. I'm afraid that this website is mainly bad news about companies so it's very refreshing and very decent for someone to come along and to give praise where praise is due. How about a link to their website?
    • Having a little additional think about this, I think that your interests are best protected in the following way: You inform the seller that you are obtaining the quotes which I have referred to above. Having received the quotes, you then inform them that you are proposing to have the work carried out at XXX garage and that you will expect that the seller will reimburse you for the costs and associated expenses. You can tell them though that you understand that they may want to control the work being done to the car and so you are willing to allow them to do it but as the fault has manifested itself at this point and that it is clear that the problem is their responsibility, if they wish to carry the work out themselves then they will have to organise the collection vehicle and the delivery of it to you once the work is completed. Of course this will be very expensive for them and they will either fail to respond or they will refuse. Whatever their reaction, you would then go on to say that as they have failed to respond/declined the invitation to carry out the repairs themselves, that you are now going to your preferred garage – one of the two quotations which you have supplied – and you will have the vehicle repaired there. You are giving them an opportunity to comment. I think that if you use this approach, then you will be able to demonstrate very clearly that they had a choice and therefore they will be unable to disassociate themselves from the repairs which are eventually carried out at your chosen repairer. Even though this exchange of correspondence may mean that it will take a week or so longer to have your repairs carried out, I think you should do this in order to protect yourself in the best way possible
    • Please name the dealer   I would start off by sending them a letter of rejection seeing as you are within the 30 days. This doesn't mean that you have to reject it but it reserves your position. Secondly, on the basis of what you say, I don't think that you need necessary to find the cheapest place. You should be looking at the best quality that you can find. I think the best thing to do would be to get to competing quotations for the work you propose to have carried out – and not necessarily at the cheapest place, but a couple of proper reputable garages – authorised for that kind of vehicle. Inform the dealer as to what you are doing and providing with copies of the estimates for the work before you put it in hand. Give them five days to object or to make other comments. Make it clear to them that once the work is carried out that you will be looking to them to reimburse you. Of course you are opening a can of worms here because if you get some further problems – more serious – you may find that the dealer is starting to say that because you have carried out your own work so your own repairer on the car, they cannot now say that any defects were inherent in the purchase – and that they may have been introduced by 1/3 party repairer. I'm afraid that you have certainly fallen into a trap of buying a car a long distance away from where you live. We find that people often tend to do that because they think the car they have found is the only one in the world for them. They forget to factor in the difficulties that they will be if there are defects – particularly if the car stopped altogether – the cost of transportation to the dealer, the cost of having to travel up and down the country to collect the car – and of course these difficulties could emerge several times through the initial years of your ownership of the vehicle if you are relying on your statutory rights and expect the dealer to meet those obligations. Furthermore, if you have to bring a court action against them you are now dealing with multijurisdictional claims – suing out of Scotland against the defendant in England and that adds to the complications. It's too late for you to do anything about this – unless you actually decide to reject the vehicle – but at the very least, other people who come across this thread may get some benefit from these comments. I think it's important for you to get the best quality repair you can and to make sure that the dealer is aware of what you are doing so that if later on they try to deny responsibility for further defects, that you will be able to show that they were fully appraised of what you are doing and they will have less room to manoeuvre themselves out of their statutory obligations. I'm afraid that purchasing a car from one dealer and then having it repaired by another service provider, brings into the same kinds of difficulties that somebody who purchases a central heating boiler from one supplier and then has it installed by a different supplier find themselves in. When things go wrong, the seller blames the installer. The installer blames the seller – and you, the customer, are piggy in the middle. Not a good place to be. I notice that you are doing things on the telephone. Big Fail! Read our customer services guide. In your situation you should be extremely careful to make sure that you have got a record of everything and a full paper trail
    • What information do DVLA need for a provisional licence ?   Think the ID issue needs to be looked at a bit more. Surely you have birth certificate, school information, Doctors records. School and Doctors should provide a letter to help with ID.                
    • Amex as with any creditor must help you the FOS should go with you and make them remove all interest charged from the very 1st time of asking for help. the FCA regulations actually almost dictate it, they most certainly clearly state that if the are FCA registered they must help.   it's very telling they have no marked your credit file....almost as if they know they are wrong. it's also telling that an irresponsible lending complaint might well be in order hear too, they can just keep upping the credit limit without checking you can pay. and ofcourse covid plays its part here and they've already admitted as they allowed payments holidays until october in line with the rest of the industry and they should be continuing that. you problem is you keep using the phone, no paperwork no record of things discussed. i'd get an SAR off to them. and get the comms/account log and all the statements from day one and go nail them.

    • Hi @BankFodder
      Sorry for only updating you now, but after your guidance with submitting the claim it was pretty straight forward and I didn't want to unnecessarily waste your time. Especially with this guide you wrote here, so many thanks for that
      So I issued the claim on day 15 and they requested more time to respond.
      They took until the last day to respond and denied the claim, unsurprisingly saying my contract was with Packlink and not with them.
       
      I opted for mediation, and it played out very similarly to other people's experiences.
       
      In the first call I outlined my case, and I referred to the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 as the reason to why I do in fact have a contract with them. 
       
      In the second call the mediator came back with an offer of the full amount of the phone and postage £146.93, but not the court costs. I said I was not willing to accept this and the mediator came across as a bit irritated that I would not accept this and said I should be flexible. I insisted that the law was on my side and I was willing to take them to court. The mediator went back to Hermes with what I said.
       
      In the third call the mediator said that they would offer the full amount. However, he said that Hermes still thought that I should have taken the case against Packlink instead, and that they would try to recover the court costs themselves from Packlink.
       
      To be fair to them, if Packlink wasn't based in Spain I would've made the claim against them instead. But since they are overseas and the law lets me take action against Hermes directly, it's the best way of trying to recover the money.
       
      So this is a great win. Thank you so much for your help and all of the resources available on this site. It has helped me so much especially as someone who does not know anything about making money claims.
       
      Many thanks, stay safe and have a good Christmas!

Backdoor Erudio CCJ - old Student Loans


Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I took out a student loan in 1998 and 1999 which has not been paid.   I wrote to tell  Student Loans in 2011 that I changed address when I moved and I've never earned enough to pay the loan. The last deferral I made was in 2011.

 

Today I get notification on my phone (same number from before 2011) that the debt was passed to Dryden in 2017 and a CCJ was issued last November in my old name and address. The debt has now grown to £4700. 

 

I have spoken to Dryden and all they can offer me is 30 days grace. 

I did contact the National Debtline who didn't really help.

I know it was stupid of me to not get back in contact after I moved and I thought it got written off at age 50. (I'm 53)
 

Any suggestions as this was a bit of a shock today and I am really panicking as to what to do.

 

Thanks

  • dx100uk changed the title to Backdoor Erudio CCJ - old Student Loans

Hi,

 

Thanks for replying. I don't have a copy of either the judgment or the claim form as apparently they sent it to my old address in my previous name.  I've never seen them at all.

 

I refused to give them my current address as I didn't think that was a wise move.

I've researched a little and not sure that 1998 loans can be statute barred like other debts.

I am a bit stressed over it all though, so I'm not sure of anything at the moment :-(

you need to ring northants bulk and ask for a copy of the judgement and the claimform by email pdf.

it is quite usual for them to not have a copy of the claimform.

so you need to record the call and ask them to read out the particulars of claim and the address it was sent too.

old wives tales , if you have a debt owing that shows on your credit file or you know exists from say the last 7yrs you should NEVER move without WRITtING to the debt owner with your new address.

never run from debt which falls within the above .

all mortgage style SLC loans that were not deferred with erudio following the gov't sale in 2013 and that did not have a court claim raised within 6yrs are SB'd.

 

drydens simply did this because they wrote to your old address, got no response, and knew they'd get a default roboclaim CCJ where no human checks anything.

 

shot yourself in the foot.

Thanks for your help - I will call Northants on Monday and record the call

 

I did inform Student Loans of my change of address when I moved, but I'd never heard or Erudio or Drydens before yesterday.

 

I didn't want to give my new address to Drydens yesterday as I was scared that they would send someone to my door.

 

I did call Erudio and explained the situation and they asked me to call Drydens to ask to speak to a supervisor to raise a query with Erudio, which I did. They have placed a hold on the case for the time being.

 

I have looked at my BTEC certificate and it is dated July 1998 and it was a two-year HND. It looks like I got my years muddled and that the loan must have been taken out in 1996 and 1997 so it pre-dates 1998 as that is when I got my qualification.  

 

After I get the details of the claim on Monday, what should I do next?

 

Again, thank you for your help in this.

there is no need to be frightened of a DCA or their pet solicitors.

a DCA is NOT A BAILIFF

and have 

ZERO legal powers on ANY debt no matter what it's type

and most certainly have ZERO powers even with a CCJ.

 

how did you inform SLC of your present address before these debts were sold to erudio?

you dont need a copy of the letter. just proof.

it might pay you to sar SLC as if they had your correct address on record before loan sales to erudio , that will add another very strong string to your bow toward setting aside this backdoor CCJ and the arrows you'll fire at Arrows :pound:(Erudio are arrows DCA in sheeps clothing)

 

you also might like many others find that you still have access to the online SLC portal.

that could be useful with info. like deferral dates etc and address and what they knew and when.

 

at present you are in the info gathering stage, the more of that you can get the better.

I did call student loans and they don't have any record of anything and no details were coming up with the old Student Loans reference number. They were the ones who told me that the loan would have been taken over by Erudia and asked me to call them instead.

Thanks. What should I put in the SAR to SLC? I've just looked at templates but they don't really relate. 

 

I've found this one. Is it too harsh?

Hi.

I've sent the SAR to SLC and called Northampton CC.

They won't give me any details of the CCJ as I don't know the case number.

I'm not sure how to get the reference except by calling Dryden.

Should I join Dryden's web portal to get the details? 

 

I forgot to add, nothing is showing on my Clearscore credit score

I’ve had the particulars read out whilst recording and had them emailed across. They suggested an N244 but I said I will deal with it. I also said no to a copy of the judgment as they wanted £10. I hope that was right.

 

Oops, I forgot to get the address it was sent to but that was mentioned whilst clearing security and recorded.
