  1. Hi letitbeme If the 2 pages are the front and back of the same document then it is enforceable - it has your name, address and signature and all the prescribed terms are in the narrow box on the right labelled "finacial and related conditions"

  4. You can start a claim regardless of whether there is a balance still owing on a credit card. What usually happens is they refund the charges on your card first, and hopefully give you the rest back in the form of a cheque. The OFT will investigate charges that are over £12 and some companies refund the difference between that and what they have charged you. But you can go for the whole lot that they have charged you.

  6. Indeed I did lead you here! As I said, it would seem that one of the main reasons I got the set aside was down to having my paperwork in order. If you're confident talking to the monkeys on the phone then that's fine but it's also your word against theirs. Thank you for your kind words... I'm over the bl***y moon and so relieved it's over!!! If I hadn't found this brilliant forum and the equally brilliant people who contribute then I'd still be a gibbering wreck... and possibly a bankrupt one to boot! :o Thanks again PV

  12. As well as giving them some stick by phone, I always like to add some patronising bits to my letters to spice them up a bit. Things like... "If I ever need a solicitor I won't be using you lot, as I constantly have to keep explaining basic things in the CCA 1974 to you." "I have typed this letter, as it seems nobody at Moorcoft can read joined up handwriting. Which would explain why you have totally ignored my previous request." "Keep your Consumer Credit Licence handy. You'll be handing it back to the FOS by the time I've finished with you." "If you don't understand t

  14. It's not a case of should - it's more of a must. The distance selling regs specifically state that the seller cannot impose costs for an item being returned in accordance with the regulations. Most companies will send a pre-paid envelope. The following is an extract from teh OFTs guide to businesses on distance selling: Q. What specifically do I have to refund to the consumer if they cancel? 3.48 The DSRs require you to refund any money paid by or on behalf of the consumer in relation to the contract to the person who made the payment. This means

  20. I have done a wee bit of digging around, and basically (from what I can understand), an unadopted road is the responsibility of the residents that have this road on the deeds to their property. I have only found one thread that mentions an unadpotive road and the link is below. From what I can gather from your post is you wish to park your car on this piece of road, but are concerned that the residents that sort of own this road will cause a bit of trouble. http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/parking-traffic-offences/22054-tickets-unadopted-road.html There is a link

  21. Dear Sir/Madam [YOUR NAME, SORT CODE, and ACCOUNT NUMBER] I write regarding the application of the following penalty charges to my account: [iNSERT DETAILS of charges applied]. As you know the monies in my account derive from means tested benefits paid by DWP, and/or the CSA. This is confirmed from my bank statements, where they are clearly indicated. Accordingly, you have erred in law in levying such charges on exempt monies in my account contrary to The Social Security Act 1992 which for your information states as follows: Social Security Administration Act 1992 Miscell

  22. Hi guys, I think I can shed some light on Enterprise/Brulines 'success' in court. They have a much vaunted 100% record but they're hiding something or more to the point, using sleight of hand. For fairly obvious reasons I have been researching this [problem] and lo and behold the 100% court success record is for INJUNCTIONS only, i.e to force the lessee to conform to the terms of the lease by not buying out. Now, the significance of this is that I can find NO reference to the veracity or validity of the Brulines extortion [problem] ever reaching a court of law. Generally speaking by

  23. One of my colleagues has taken some legal advice and spoken with a colleague who has had some involvement in the new legislation and both views are that the legislation is clear in that deposits only have to be protected if taken after 6 April 07. She has spoken with two of the schemes operators and they are adamant that deposits paid prior to April 07 do not have to be protected We were given this example: Students - Housing - Communities and Local Government A student has paid a full deposit before 6 April 2007 (eg in March) for an AST starting after 6 April 2007 (eg in September 200

  26. KAR PM'd me to ask if the document in post #12 was enforceable. Firstly, I would say that it doesn't comply with s78(1) of the CCA 1974 because it doesn't comply with regulation 2 of the Consumer Credit (Cancellation Notices and Copies of Documents) regulations 1983 Given that it is almost illegible, it is difficult to say whether it is enforceable or not. It looks like the first 2 pages are back and fornt of the same document which has your name, address and signature. To be enforceable under s127(3) of the CCA 1974 it must have: 1. a statement about your credit limit, even if it

  29. Mate, You mentioned the undertakings made by the pubco when you took over in a previous post. Were these conditions of your lease, because if they were the pubco has breached contract with you. Has there been any reaction to your LBA yet? What was their response? Have they disclosed the case numbers for all the other times that they have allegedly won in court over the same argument? I would seriously call in the Information Commissioners Office in order to achieve compliance with the DPA request. They shouldn't be allowed to get away with just ignoring it. Every firm

It may help if you include you email addy as he will send the documents there. If not then add a link to this thread and see what he can do for u.
