Is my address blacklisted? I have recently bought a property and the old occupiers have a lot of debt collection notices and I have no forwarding address , where can I look to see if my address is on the black list??

There is no such thing as a credit blacklist. It is the individual who has the credit report and not the address.

Debt free Legal Loophole In 1974 Consumer Credit Act, can my debt be wiped out?

There are a lot of claims management companies charging up front fees to do it for you. Whatever the case, where you have to pay up-front fees, never do, it's most likely to be a scam!
