  1. hello, hoping someone can help and point me in the right direction. In hindsight I wish i had done some reaesrch beforehand and found this site 10 years ago as now i wouldnt be in the mess that i am in so in 2008 i was in desperate need of funds. I approached a broker who introduced me to lancashire mortgages. initially i went for a bog standard mortgage but due to my circumstances and being self employed it was turned down at the initial stages. they did however offer me a secured loan. i should have seen it then that it was a trap. i took out a secured loan in augu
  2. Hi all, I am new to this forum, so please bare with me as I get hang of how it all works. My story dates back to 2006, when I took out a secured loan with Blemain/Together finance for £25k. This was to pay additional bills and to do some repairs on my property. I brought the property in 2003. This was the first time I took out a loan, I had no real knowledge of the best type of loan to choose, which is why I did the loan through a broker, who pass my application to a third party Loan Options, who recommended Blemain finance. They were both paid a commissio
  3. Hi I'm wanting to get information from Blemain with regard to my loan. It's due to finish later this year and they claim the current balance is approx £4.5K which won't be cleared by the payments! I'm going to send a SAR but I'm not sure which template to use from the library. There's Full Subject Access Request or Debt or DCA Subject Access Request I was going to use the "Full" one, but then the "Debt" one looks better as it specifically mentions insurance and additional charges. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. BB

  7. Hi A few years ago we took out a bridging loan with Lancashire Mortgage Corporation/now Together. In the documents sent to us was an "Offer Letter" which confirmed the amount to be borrowed ,rates of interest etc but NO mention of any renewal fees of 5% of the total loan. In fact in the letter it states "Exit Fee-£0". Very misleading. It was however mentioned in the Bridging Loan Agreement and this was missed by us, solicitors and broker (allegedly) !!!! We are taking legal action against the solicitors and broker but this company Together are completely out of con
  8. Hi everyone, I'm new on the CAG Forum but was directed here by the good folks at MSE. I have long suffered at the hands of Blemain/Together. I foolishly applied for a second charge loan over a decade ago. It has been the (most expensive) bane of my life ever since. I recently received a letter from Together stating that my original loan has now past its term. It says, As you will be aware, your account with us has now reached the end of the original contractual term. As your monthly repayments have not been sufficient to fully repay the balance, the
  9. A review of past fees and charges, and you are entitled to a refund. The amount is about a few hundred. I believe my relative had a massively unfair relationship with them. Curious if anyone else has got this letter recently and what it means...annd what you've done about it.
  10. Hi, I have a secured loan that I got via Ocean Finance which turned out to be Blemain (now Together). Amount £15k Term 180 Months Taken out Jan 2007 End of term Feb 2022 I have always paid , no issues or missed. Only change by me was a monthly payment date due to change of employer and salary into account. I phoned the other month to change this again to a suitable date and was told I had to pay off arrears from previous change of date years ago??!! They adjusted my monthly payment to cover the shortfall about £2.53 per month difference? I didn't change the d
  11. Hi, I have joined here after reading an exceptional amount of valuable information regarding Blemain Finance (or Blemain Group) now operating as Together. About myself: I am a law graduate and helping a friend with his mortgage taken from Blemain. About the friend: From what I can see he has taken a total of 5 "charges" over his property from Blemain over the course of 2013 to the present. It started with £15,000 and now he owes 4 times this amount. That is not to say he did not exercise his own will, but so much about their operation is incredibly DODGY (for wa
  12. Hi to all - I can see from a quick search that 'Blemain' is a popular talking point I have had a secret commission claim against Blemain with [removed] since 2015 and it hasn't gone anywhere in the 30 months since then at all. I've struggled to get any meaningful update from them for some time excluding the committal generic updates we sporadically receive. I've noted on other forums that other [removed] clients are posting that [removed] have run out of money and no longer have the skilled staff to settle the claims. If it is true and they have run out of cash, surel

  14. I had a loan with Blemain about five years ago. The loan was secured against my property. After two years I remortgaged and repaid the loan. I have checked the paperwork recently and noticed that I was charged £4,681 for collection costs. I have now written twice to Blemain asking for a detailed breakdown of these costs. The reply I had today said, the costs were "as a result of administrative costs applied to the account". I know that! They don't seem to want to give the details of the charges. I don't know what to do now. Shall I w
  15. Hi everybody, starting a thread regarding Blemain finance, took a loan out for £5k over 5 years secured on my house, had problems keeping up repayments for reasons that Blemain were informed off. Just managed to clear the loan and the arrears on the account but they have taken advantage of my unfortunate situation with crippling charges and legal costs. I am now going to send a SAR and fight them if i can for the charges to be either cancelled or reduced if possible. As it was a joint loan with my wife we have received in some months 5 letters each at £35 each

  17. Hi there. I want some advice on what to do next and will start from the very beginning so that I have all the details in the right order. Over a month ago my Dad and myself worked with companies that can help you claim back PPI, we went with different companies and never heard anything back. I only have a credit card but my Dad and my Mum (who has passsed on) had a lot of loans and a mortgage about 17 years ago. This was cleared off in 2009 and the loan was with Blemain Finance. my Dad had a lot more than me. Unfortunately about 3 weeks ago my Dad had an accid

  19. Hi I hope someone can shed some light on a letter I got from this company yesterday. In March this year my ex wife passed away we divorced in 2004 after sorting finances out and selling the house at the time. Now I got a letter from blemain finance saying they have a refund for me it was addressed to me and my ex. When I rang them they were unaware that my ex had passed away and asked if I could send them a death certificate as proof and my bank details as they have a substantial refund to pay back. Now if this was something my ex started to claim be
  20. I took out a small(ish) secured loan with Blemain Finance in about 2007, which was needed in addition to my main mortgage which was with Halifax. The loan I took out with Blemain was only for £17k (and my main mortgage with Halifax - which was interest only - was for £90,000). Despite the fact that the loan amount with Blemain was only around a fifth of the amount of my main mortgage with Halifax, the monthly repayments were about the same (about £300 per month). Some of the time I was not working so I struggled to always keep up with the Blemain repayments, BUT I was
  21. I took out a Blemain finance loan back in 2005 for £16.913.00 , secured against my property (it was actually a refinancing of a previous loan with First National Home Finance) . I sold my property in Jan 2012, both the mortgage and the Blemain loan were paid off. The interest on the loan was 12.2% The final redemption payment to Blemain was for £23,253.36 in Jan 2016 and this was paid in full. I got the SAR from them i have a break down off all the charges. Through out the loan I did have money problems, looking at the breakdown of my account there is
  22. Hi, Please bear with me as I am new to this. Late last year I went to court making an application to suspend an eviction order and make monthly payments to Blemain of the monthly figure plus £80. I kept up to date with the payments until July albeit the last few months were made in several payments at a later date but all were made within the time agreed with them or sooner. I am self employed and money can be erratic. The payment due on 21 July could not be paid I agreed to try and pay in full by 1 August however I could only pay them £100 and promised the bal
  23. My elderly father in law has recently been sent to a care home with dementia. we think he started getting ill around 2 years ago when he sold his house. He owed £19k on a £200k property and panicked as he was getting possession letters he sold the house for £140k but the mortgage company only give him £48k from the sale the rest was taken up in mortgage fees for god knows what. He then moved into a rented bungalow. We have found all this out from his neighbour and found paper work to confirm this but we haven't got all the accounts on the payment history. M
  24. Blemain say I owe them £2946. I have had the loan secured against my house since 2007. They keep sending me letters requesting payment. I'm unable to pay the full amount so I'm wondering if there is anything I can do to setup a payment plan or to even get some of the charges removed They used to charge you when there was no money in the bank. My money used to go in Friday afternoon, and they always tried to take it in the morning. They also used to take it out before bank holiday etc they charged me for that, and they also charged me for every letter they have sent. Any idea what the
  25. we had a loan with blemain, which I will admit we didn't run well, however we got right through the 99 month term and paid as per the instructions and monthly agreed amount. However after the loan term ended I contacted them to make sure that we were clear and got told we still owed £14009 as far as I can see from the breakdown they have sent me this is charges for missed payments/letters/phone calls etc etc, but this is nearly 50% of the original amount we borrowed and just seems completely and utterly wrong, I got in touch with the ombudsman but because its an un
