Why would they contact you?
If you couldn’t keep up with your loan repayments or stopped paying the money you owed for any other reason, SLL could now be responsible for its recovery.
The letter you receive should outline where the debt came from, your payments and the outstanding amount.
Failure to get in touch with SLL Capital could result in court proceedings to recover the debt. If you ignore their letters and phone calls, there’s a good chance they’ll visit your home or place of work to try and talk to you. The only way to prevent this is to take control and deal with it.
Do you owe SLL Capital money?
If you aren’t sure whether or not you owe SLL Capital money, it’s important that you find out.
To have the account closed off and stop unnecessary visits and on-going contact, you must prove to the debt collectors that you have paid the debt.
There are instances where an unpaid loan is connected to someone else who lived at your address or was taken out through fraudulent means.
If you believe the debt isn’t yours, we can advise you the best ways to prove that this is the case and have it removed.
How old is the debt they are collecting?
Some old and forgotten debts can be disregarded after a set period of time.
Statute barred debts are usually consumer loan or credit arrangements that haven’t been paid into for 6 years. If you haven’t spoken with your original lender or had any communication with them throughout that time, then you could be entitled to discount the remainder of the debt.
We can help you prove this is the case and have it struck from your account.
If the debt is found to be active, then you should seek advice into the best ways to repay it and to settle the situation.
Is SLL Capital treating you unfairly?
The law outlines how anyone entering into a credit agreement must be treated. It is designed to protect both lender and borrower from any untoward treatment or behaviour. Your lender must make sure the amount and repayment schedule is fair and reasonable in line with your income.
If you feel you have been mistreated at any point during your experience, you can make a complaint to the Financial Conduct Authority to help you find a solution. You may even be entitled to compensation.
