Dear Sir/Madam
Account No:
Our client has contacted us regarding the above account.
We ask you not to contact our client any further because they have entered a breathing space moratorium through National Debtline. You are required to follow the Debt Respite Scheme (Breathing Space Moratorium and Mental Health Crisis Moratorium) (England and Wales) Regulations 2020.
Reg. 11 (1) says that “During a moratorium period neither a creditor nor the creditor’s agent must contact a debtor in relation to the enforcement of a moratorium debt, including to demand payment or as a precursor to starting any legal proceedings against the debtor in connection with the moratorium debt”.
Reg.7 says that a creditor must not:
(a) take a step to collect a moratorium debt from a debtor; or
(l) contact a debtor for the purpose of enforcement of a moratorium debt.
Please stop all collection activity on this account until the breathing space moratorium is complete. If you continue to break breathing space rules, this will be reported to the Insolvency Service.
Please send confirmation to our client that breathing space protections will be applied.
Yours faithfully
