    It's always about timing.

    If the Giant is asleep then let them sleep.

    The minute the Giant wakes up and starts to make noises then that could be the right time to send a s.77-79 CCA Request.

    Which of your debts are you talking about?

      Basically the debt in question is for a 12000 balance on a Tesco Loan which is now owned by Hoist and Robinson Way are collecting. This was included on my stepchange DMP, in the same way every other debt was until i stopped paying into my DMP in February.

      I have read on one of these forums that a creditor cant seek to make you bankrupt on debts under 5k so with this debt being 12k I didn't want to prompt them to take any unnecessary action putting my prpoerty at risk.( i have a joint mortgage with my wife with a balance of 76k, property value around 120k)

      have held them off so far by making excuses about there being problems with my DMP or by telling I would be setting the DMP back up with Stepchange which has bought me a little more time.

      There were a few other debts on my DMP for things like utility arrears owed from previous suppliers, so as i would need to arrange a payment plan in connection with these i may as well actually go back to stepchange for them to set my DMP back up but only to include the debts i haven't sent a CCA request for, including the 12k loan.

      If it transpires any of the agreements i have sent a CCA request for are actually enforceable there is a likelihood these will also be added to the DMP.

      Hope this clarifies my situation a little better.

      Obviously any advice given will be taken fully on board.

      Thanks again

          Because it's an unsecured loan perhaps?

            In which case immediately send a s.77-79 CCA Request to Hoist with a copy to Robinson Way.

            Hoist are litigious - this particular Giant likes to issue claims.

            Have you had any letters from Howard Cohen solicitors or any letters from Robinson Way informing you that Howard Cohen will be instructed to take over matters if you don't make an acceptable arrangement to pay?

            A CCA Request will hopefully stop things before they start to escalate.

              yes the loan is unsecured and in my sole name.

              I haven't received anything from Howard Cohen solicitors or Robinson Way in regards to Howard Cohen. There wasn't ever a problem whilst i was on my DMP and my payment proposals were accepted by Robinson Way hence my train of thought of setting my DMP back up to include this loan rather than send the CCA may be the better option.

                  You can do both

                  If you discover that Hoist don't comply with your CCA Request rendering the debt unenforceable unless or until they do comply, then you can rethink whether you want to continue paying them via Robinson Way.

                  That's not a decision I can make for you but I'm sure other forum members will voice their own opinions based on their own experiences.

                  I'll only add that being in a DMP doesn't necessarily make you immune to legal proceedings.

                        Hi Scotty

                        If it were me, as a rule I would not be calling anyone, put it all in writing.

                        If you do have to call them you could record the call, but I keep off the phone and always refuse to engage if they call me

                        I have also written to all my creditors saying I will only communicate in writing - keeps things simple and you have a papertrail ( It does mean I have a small filing cabinet full of paper but hey ho )

                          I usually request everything in writing but thought it would be quicker in this particular instance to update them so i could get a bit more time

                            I understand why you did it, just offering an opinion that telephone calls are not generally a good idea

                            At least they confirmed it in writing - you have no idea the number of times in the past different people have denied all knowledge of a telephone call ( not necessarily talking about debt here- Vodafone are awful for it)

                            I also found out the hard way that courts may not allow covert recordings - even when it proves they lied

                              just checking my whether the CCA requests have been received and one of them cant be delivered due to no access to the delivery address.Royal mail have left a card to await instructions otherwise it will be returned back to me. Where does this stand as far as the timeframe they have to respond to my request? i assume the clock wont start until they have signed for it.

                              Any advice?

                                Which creditor is this and what address did you use when you sent your CCA Request?
