Unfortunately the passing of an IVA from one IP to another is catered for in the regulations and, so, is legal. Bit unfortunate that this has happened so many times for you, but there is little (nothing really!) that you can do about it.
- if the old company is still trading write in and ask for a copy of any data they hold about you
- do the same for the new company
- ask them to confirm how they process your data under article 6 and 9 of the GDPR
You do need to provide proof of identity but once established they have 1 calendar month in which to respond and there is no charge for a copy of the information.
For anyone dealing with retrospective PPI claims from Cleardebt it might be worth doing the same. They are obviously processing new information and it would be in your interests to find out what they now hold.
