Who is Lowell Financial?
Lowell Financial is a debt company that buy existing debt from a wide variety of businesses. These can include phone, bank, insurance and retail companies.
They deal with over 700k customers each year, making them one of the UK’s more prominent collection agencies.
They are authorised by the Financial Conduct Authority and are members of the Credit Services Association. They also hold Gold status for customer service from Investor in Customers.
Why would Lowell Debt Recovery contact you?
If a company you owed money to have sold the debt to Lowell Financial, you will then owe the money to them instead.
This can happen when you’ve failed to stick to to the conditions of a loan or credit agreement, or if you’ve been unable to keep up with payments on your bill.
A debt collection agency will use different methods to recover the money you owe. This can include visits to your home and court action. It’s not a problem you can afford to ignore, so the sooner you deal with it the better.
Do you owe Lowell Financial money?
Before you do anything, it’s important to work out if you actually owe the money you’re being chased for. In some cases, a debt can be accidentally inherited or allocated to someone completely unrelated to the debt in question.
Lowell Financial must provide the correct proof and documentation to establish a repayment program.
If the debt is yours, then there are strict rules to govern how they expect you to repay what you owe.
How old is the debt they are collecting?
There are times when a debt is passed to an debt collection agency, yet the debt is actually no longer active.
This is known as becoming statute barred, which happens after a debt has outlived the terms of its repayment. In many cases, once a debt is over 6 or 7-years-old, it expires. If your debt has become statute barred, take this up with the collection agency or original lender immediately.
Is Lowell Financial treating you unfairly?
Anybody repaying debt is entitled to fair treatment when paying back the money they owe. It is the job of the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) to make sure that you have legal protection and to prosecute any company who does anything that goes against their guidelines.
This means that any debt collector found to be charging unfair rates or fees, refusing to provide information you need, or using unnecessary pressure to force you to pay what you can’t realistically afford, will be subject to prosecution. You could also be entitled to compensation if you are a victim to any such unacceptable behaviour.
If you think you might have been treated unfairly, our advice is to contact the FCA or Trading Standards to make a complaint.
