FAQs about contacting Lowell

How you can get in touch with us and the ways we can help

How much does it cost to contact Lowell?

If you call us from a landline you’ll be charged at your local rate. If you call from a mobile, the charges will vary depending on your network provider. Remember, you can also manage your account online for free.

What times are you open?

Due to Coronavirus, the opening times of our main call centre may change. For the latest updates on our opening times, please check our Contact Us page. Or, you can manage your account online, on any day or time that works for you.

Why are you contacting me?

If we’re trying to get in touch with you, it'll be to tell you that we own your debt and to talk about the best way forward for you. You can register online to get more information about your account or get in touch if you’d like to speak to a member of the team.

What will happen if I contact you?

We’ll ask you a couple of questions to confirm your identity. Then we’ll have a chat about your circumstances and help you find a solution that works for you. We’ll always take the time to understand your situation and we’ll never ask you to pay more than you can afford.

What happens if I ignore you?

We’ll keep trying to get in touch with you by letter, email and phone. If we don’t receive a response after a certain amount of time, we may pass your account to one of our external solicitors. Just like we do; the solicitors will try to contact you. If you do not respond, they may take legal action which could result in fees, charges and interest being added to what you owe. It could also result in a County Court Judgement (CCJ) which may impact your credit score and could lead to action such as requesting that a bailiff visits you at your home.

Why is another company contacting me about Lowell?

We work with a number of trusted debt collection agencies. If we don’t receive a response from you for a certain amount of time, we might pass your account to one of these companies. They’ll get in touch and work with you to set an affordable payment plan on our behalf. For details of the company managing your account, register or log in to our website.

Can I talk to you about my mental health?

We welcome any information you’re happy to share that helps us understand your circumstances. Our team are trained to listen and take the time to understand your situation. They’ll be patient and empathetic while helping you find a solution that’s right for you.
