I divorced about 10 years ago and transferred my mortgage out of my partner's name. However it appears as if my ex has been taking out more loans and not paying them back and every month or so a different collection agency will get in touch. This is causing emotional distress to the remaining family.
Is there a way to stop debt collection agencies from approaching this address and telephone number? Is there something I should do to ensure he is not able to take out loans with this address or are the agencies just digging through his address history?
I'm in the UK.
Clarification: This isn't repeated calls from a few debt collection agencies, but different companies approaching about different loans each time. By and large, they are going away once told they are no longer at this address. I'm wondering more if there's something to be done to prevent them even approaching this address in the first place.
(asking this on behalf of someone else, clarifications may take a while).
