If Roxburghe UK Ltd are contacting you about your debt, you should not panic. The best thing to do is to open up communication with the debt collectors and let them know your situation. The worst thing you can do is ignore them, as this won’t solve the situation at all. Although it can be stressful dealing with debt, it is important to do this, as you can guarantee that they will keep contacting you, if they don’t get a response.

Debt collector Roxburghe UK in Administration
Roxburgh UK, the debt collector and part of the HFO/Turnbull Rutherford group, latterly infamous for their parking ticket shenanigans, have been placed in administration. Read about it here.
If you want to deal with your debt head on, there are some options available. If you are struggling to pay back the debt, you can enter into a debt management plan or an IVA. These are most suited to borrowers who have no means of paying their debt, or the debt has reached an unaffordable level. A good way to approach this is to work out your income and expenditure, and make a decision based on what you can realistically afford.
You could also use a guarantor, if you have a poor credit rating and you want to take out a loan to pay any outstanding debt.
You should be careful with the option you decide, as in some cases, you won’t be entitled to credit for up to 5 years if you enter into an IVA, for instance.
If you wanted to try a debt management plan, there are many different options available to suit your circumstances.

Roxburghe UK Ltd and the legal situation
Roxburghe UK Ltd is a debt collection company, and they buy the debt from the original lender – which is the company you will probably recognise. As they buy the debt for less than the original cost, they are persistent in trying to get the money back from you.
They may use all kinds of tactics when they call you up, including trying to get you to set up a direct debit or standing order. Although it can be difficult to say no at times to debt collectors, it is imperative that you don’t end up setting up payments that you can’t really afford, no matter how much they try to pressure you.
If you don’t recognise the debt at all – or you are worried about whether they are acting legitimately, you can ask them for a copy of the original credit agreement.
If you would like to find out if you quality for an IVA or can benefit from a debt management programme, you can try the IVA Test. It doesn’t cost anything to apply for this. Click here to go to the application form.
