Creditors are entitled to contact you to collect unpaid debts. They can contact you by letter, phone call or home visit.
However, they have to act within the law and treat you fairly. If they don't, you can make a complaint.
We've been providing debt advice for more than 25 years, and in this time we've seen a lot of examples of unfair practice from creditors. Some of these are outlawed by industry rules or codes of practice, and some of them are illegal.
If you feel you're experiencing any of these actions, or if a creditor is treating you unfairly in any other way, it's a good idea to keep a record of everything that happens. For example, keep a notebook by the phone to log all the calls you get. This’ll help if you need to make a complaint at a later date.
