    Student Loan - Charges

    Student Loan - Charges 8th Oct 17 at 4:00 PM
    I would appreciate any advise.

    I have 4 student loans from 1994 - 1997 totaling £7k. My account is currently with Thesis Services.

    I have provided thorough evidence that I have been under the repayment terms, however communication channels haven't been brilliant on both sides, but now I am being charged nearly £6k for delays.

    I have asked for clarification in writing as to why I am getting charged this. I was made redundant last year and got deferred again, but they have still being pestering me to clear these charges.

    What can I do? Where can I go for advise?

    Any help will be greatly appreciated

    They are charging 6k for delays? If its from 97 I would think that is one the mortgage style loans that they used to give out.

    I know the interest rate on these has gone up since the 1st September this year.

    In any case 6k sounds pretty drastic and as these 3rd party colectors like Thesis don't have a great reputation I would check your position with the money advice service.

    Hope it works out.
