About Me


  1. Hi, I've been looking at reclaiming PPI from a 2002 loan I got to buy musical equiptment. After being messed around claiming they couldn't find my account details I SAR'd my bank at the time and sifted through 1000+ pages of documentation in order to find my agreement number, 160 days after the initial SAR request I was eventually supplied my account detals. Long story short it was single payment / front loaded PPI payment. I did however run into difficulties paying the account and it was "written off (term as per transaction description) / defaulted at £520 in 31/07/2003. What I've since learned was that this debt was sold off to 1st Credit DCA, who subsequently persued me (and me simply not knowing any better thinking I was simply settling one of many debts I had from my younger years) I made an initial £26 payment on 31/05/2006 as a token of my eventual desire to pay said debt completely. I WAS AT NO POINT AWARE THIS WAS ACTUALLY THE BLACKHORSE ACCOUNT The following day (01/06/2006) while continuing to settle debts I called Black Horse and made what i was to believe was the final £520.85 payment.due on the old loan. After saving for a few months more I then contacted 1st Credit and paid the rest of the £525 debt they asked for. It has now come to light while I've checking old bank statements that Black Horse accepted the final settlment from me while actually not owning the debt having it been sold on to 1st Credit. Where do I stand in Scotland with regards timeframe to claim the full £525 payment from either party? Any advice would be appreciated
  2. Weve had a telephone call from Blackhorse today to say we can cancel our PPI but our repayments on the loan wont go down due to a previous claim we made. Is this correct??? Hadituptohere

  4. Looking for some advice. I defaulted on a black horse personal loan on 2012 (not hire purchase) which was taken out for a car in 2009. This was included in my sequestration. The car was not repossessed as the value of the car was too little. Black horse have confirmed that the account is closed but that I still have a balance. 5 years later I would like to sell the car but when carrying out a HPI check the balance is showing. Do I have the right to sell this car?
  5. can someone advise me please... i have received a claim form from Ascent legal on behalf of the above. it relates to an amount £2864.14 which is in relation to a secured loan from black horse. i have paid them nothing nor have i replied to any correspondence in over 6 years - is the claim statute barred or not? thanks in advance
  6. I previously sent a CCA request as I could not locate the original that was taken out in 2001. I received the attached edited copy but is I am not sure if this is correct ? I then sent off an SAR and again received the same amongst details submitted. Am I missing anything does anyone know ? I've checked the forum for BH credit agreement examples but all seem to look different to mine. Just one other question, should BH be sending me annual statements of some sort ? Thank-you for looking.
  7. We have had numerous issues with a caravan purchased from a dealership in less than a year we have had approximately 44 issues with the caravan with several issues being serious. Four of the issues resulted in the front and rear panels being repaired and then replaced. The advice I got from a lawyer was as follows; Although I appreciate you approached XXX Caravans to supply you the caravan, as you took out a hire purchase agreement with Black Horse, they are the retailer of the caravan. T herefore any rights you have under consumer law are to be exercised against Black Horse and not XXX Caravans. Under the Consumer Rights Act 2015 Black Horse have an obligation to ensure the goods supplied to you under a contract are of satisfactory quality. This means they should be fit for their purpose, free from minor defects, safe and durable. For the problems you have described in your email it would appear this is not the case, as a result Black Horse are in breach of the contract between you. I have always been under the impression that the supplier is the retailer and that the contract is between the consumer and the supplier and if there are any issues I need to approach the supplier and not the finance company although the finance company do have a responsibility. As we have had so many issues with this caravan which appears to be a Friday afternoon lemon made from left over pieces of other rejected caravans, we are considering rejecting the caravan even though we have had it since July 2016. The £1000 deposit was paid using a credit card with the balance financed by a trade in and HP. The caravan cost in excess of £30000. We have had approximately 100 days usage from the caravan. The question is whether the advice from the lawyer is correct or not? Thanks.
  8. Car on HP with BH. Some way in to the agreement finances crashed and couldn't pay. Defaulted and taken to court. But BH didn't get a court order for repossession, and I avoided a CCJ. (Mostly luck, and a sympathetic judge.) Instead BH & I agreed a Tomlin order with minimum repayments, which I kept to. Final payment made recently. The Tomlin order explicitly said 'There is no order made in respect of costs.' BH have still added solicitor fees, court costs, and other legal costs adding up to a few hundred to the balance. Do these fees count as unreasonable costs? Can I reclaim them? I'm already planning to reclaim the usual BH late/returned payment fees and it would be useful to know if I can include these fees too. All help appreciated!

Came back from an overseas trip yesterday to find the N1SDT claim form... de... Any suggestions gratefully received. I thought this one was going to end up SB so wondering if the date has triggered this action?
  10. Hi I have a secured loan previously owned by black Horse but sold to Sky Loans in 2015 .what a nightmare At point of sale sky loans told me there were arrears despite the account being in dispute In 2016 Black horse made me a credit which more than cleared any arrears and Sky Loans have added various charges extra interest but refused to reimburse me The loan is almost paid any advice Please
  11. good morning all, whilst trawling through old paperwork searching for anything relevant to a separate issue i have, i have found an old black horse finance agreement from 2002. i have no other paperwork relating to it. there is ppi on the agreement and i have detailed on the agreement: the furniture cash price, monthly interest rate, apr, number of monthly repayments and amount of each payment. However there isn't any breakdown of the monthly payment although i'm assuming i can work that out from the other figures on the agreement ( although i haven't been able to work out the correct formula yet ). Although the box is ticked for requesting the payment protection plan and explains it is optional, i know the salesman told me that i had a better chance of getting the finance if i took the ppi ( this was my first significant purchase when i moved out of my parents ). I guess i need to SAR Black Horse although i don't hold out much hope of them having anything after this long. i was just wondering what you think my chances of success would be? the ppi was never claimed on and the finance was repaid.
  12. In July 2010 my wife I purchased a static caravan on a Park Resort holiday camp for £13693.75 a deposit of £2500 and the balance on Black Horse finance. Our finances changed 8 months later and was no longer able to pay for the caravan we spoke to BH and they agreed they would take the caravan back sell it and we would have to pay the outstanding finance on a agreed amount of £50 per month and top up as and when we could with no interest on the outstanding balance which was approx £6500. Since 2013 we have kept a regular paymant of £50 as agreed with BH and have a outstanding balance of Approx £4500. Recently i checked my credit score on Clear score and found that i was in arrears with BH, i contacted BH and discussed that i had kept our agreed payment every month and i was still in arrears. BH told me that i was and would continue to be until full payment i asked if i paid the original monthly amount of £275 or paid a settlement figure (which they declined) would i still be in arrears, and the answer was yes, Do you have any advise Is it to late for a "voluntary termination"
  13. Was quietly browsing my credit reports last night when I spotted on both of them that there was a CCJ listed. I check monthly and its the first time ive seen them. Was issued 29/12/15 by Northampton Bulk Clearance Centre. Called Northampton today and get a few details from them including the creditor, etc. Turns out ive been CCJed for a debt that I last made a payment on in 2006 and have never communicated in written form about ever. There were a few calls around 2008/9 from them but I requested more than once a copy of the Credit Agreement that they were unable to provide. Question 1, Is this debt statute barred? I think it is based on information on gov.uk. Next thing is the claim was made at my previous address but as I have lived at my current address for more than 2 years would the debt collector be naughty enough to deliberately issue against the wrong address in order to get a default judgement? Question 2, How do I go about proving that? There are a few searches on my credit file that have all returned my current address and as I am confident there is nothing else lurking in my closet I would assume these searches come from Hillesden. Question 3, Is there a way of getting the information on who made the search (and for what purpose) from the referencing agencies? Before the end of today N244 will be in the post with a cheque for £155 enclosed. Do I try and talk to Hillesden or their solicitors (I have their details) or should I just go straight for a hearing in person and try and resolve it that way. The logical thing in my mind is to give them an opportunity to either answer some questions or trip themselves up but usual advice tends to be leave them alone. As it stands with a CCJ on file I dont really have a lot to lose by taking the fight to them as hard as I can.
  14. Hi I have recently finished paying a loan, originally with Black Horse now with Skye. I have made all contractual payments under this agreement. (well actually I overpaid by 1 instalment) 90 payments of 278.26 for agreement 91 payments of 278.26 made The balance of this account is now stands at 775.04 This amount derives from 15 charges of 25.00 & 7 charges of 30.00 A charge of 15.00 to change the date of the repayments. Also now a charge of 12.00 from Skye in March this year for an alleged instalment payment missed. All information is obtained from a SAR sent to Black Horse in February 2016. Skye took over receiving payments for this account in June 2015.At that point I had 7 payments to make, although due to a communication error with my other half 8 were made. All these payments made in full and on time. So as far as I was concerned this loan was finished, but was aware account had incurred charges during a bad period for us 2009-2011. I have never accepted these charges & made Black Horse aware of this & of our financial problems at that time hence paying for a date change in repayments to try and rectify problem but didn’t work & I continued to be charged. I have recently received a letter from Skye quoting that I have missed a payment of 278.26 in March and have subsequently been charged 12.00. Against better judgement a phoned Skye and asked how can I have missed payments when all contractual payments had been made +1. They hadn’t a clue what anything was as they had only received a balance figure from Black Horse & said they would look into it. Another telephone call to Skye now reveals that this balance is made up of charges & interest. Some of the interest occurred from the start of the loan (draw down of funds in July 2008 & the 1st installment being paid in August 2008) and it was then pointed out that the amount owed now 775.04 is now capital. I repeated that I did not agree with the charges and would not be paying them and that I would be taken action to reclaim these charges & would send a letter this weekend. The only problem is what letter would I use to address this situation, it’s been quite some time since I tackled anything like this & I know things have changed somewhat as regarding reclaiming charges. I spent a little time looking at COBS(unfairness) is this a route to take & do I take up this fight with the original lender as I have read a post from Bankfodder regarding all duties still remain with them even if sold on. The reason I ask this is Skye told me to deal only with them and not with Black Horse. I work away from home during the week and can only deal with this at the weekend and as we all know these amounts soon start to get out of control so I need to deal with this as quickly as possible. If any info is required I have all letters statements and telephone transcripts. Any information or guidance is much appreciated. Thanks

  18. I bought a car via black horse in march 2011. the amount of credit shown on th credit agreement is £5499.85 over 60 months. I VT'd due to loss of employment in jan 2013 after making £2859.89 worth of payments. The car was auctioned for £1821. My halfway payment on the agreement shows as £4611.22. so total received by BH is £4680.89 (more than the halfway payment) I am now being chased for £1203 by mackenzie hall. My question is can i include the sold price to the halfway point or is it payments only? also, they have charged me a £25 'repossession fee' i thought it was supposed to be free. I've looked but cant find the answer to question 1 anywhere. I'm hoping someone here can clear this up for me before i start contacting them. Thankyou
  19. Several months ago i received a letter from Idem saying black horse had sold my debt to them at the same time i received a letter in the same envelope from Black horse confirming this, Both letter stated that if i was on a scheme this would be honoured, Black horse froze interest rates on my account in 2007 i was on a repayment only scheme, i thought nothing untoward until i received a letter from idem saying to ring them to set up a payment plan, The amount owed differed from what i actually owed, i rang them and they told me interest was being charged, i explained i was on an repayment only scheme. They said they would write to Black horse, i left it 3 weeks and contacted Black Horse they have not received any letter, However they said they would pursue this and made 2 telephone calls to them i phoned Idem and they confirmed they had received the calls, Now 2 months down the line and 5 letters latter to Idem , they have not replied or made any effort the honor the agreement with them or Black horse, any ideas or help please both my wife and myself anr well into retirement age and don't want the aggravation of these types
  20. Hello everybody - lurked for years but never posted before......Perhaps this is similar to the "free money" thing that other's have experienced with Blackhorse offering compensation for procedural errors. I have been phoned today - 6 July 2015 - by somebody apparently from Blackhorse regarding 3-loan accounts that I had with them way back in 2004. I was mis-sold PPI on all 3 but when a claim was made they only upheld one - in 2012. The operator was very polite and has evidently been given the task of examining whether or not I could remember the circumstances around being offered the loans, my work situation at the time and what the money had been used for. It would appear that the upshot is that they realise that they should have repaid all the premiums at the time of my first claim. Just wondering if anybody else has taken a similar call recently - or have I just been phished?! Cheers Chanch PS The lady's name was Denise Kilpatrick and a quick check of LinkedIn would appear to bear it out as a genuine call
  21. Hi Guys, I'm glad i came across this site. I've been doing some in depth reading regarding the process to have an SAR carried out on various lenders etc. In the past I've had the following: Black Horse Loan (2002ish) Applied for my PPI back and told they couldn't find account (now they've been fined 110+ million i'm sure they'l be more helpful Halifax Bank Account BOS Bank Account Birmingham Midhsires Mortgage. I guess my question is can i just send a single SAR to Lloyds banking group HQ (now that they own all these subsiduaries) or will I have to make one to the individual companies within the group.
  22. We bought a car through Black Horse we traded the first car in after a year and got a bigger car and then we traded that one in and got another one thats the back story. We then fell behind with payments and they reposessed the car that was approx 5 or six years ago we were paying a token payment all we could afford to a DCA this went on for approx 3 or 4 years and then we got a letter back from Black Horse saying they were to be paid again not the DCA we have continued to pay a token payment all we can afford there is a balance of approx £9,000 still outstanding. Can anyone offer some help it will take forever to pay this off at the payments we are making. Thanks
  23. Hi, Ive just come across a thread about BH selling on to Skye, so have started my own.. . I only have 4 months left on the loan after 5 years. I had an agreement with BH that I have in writing, that if I continued to pay the monthly repayments on time (2 years ago) that the added interest, due to a few missed payments and an added 6 months to the term of my loan, without my knowledge, (even they could not see who had done it or why just that the dates had changed ??) that they would remove everything.. they had already removed over £1600 of wrongful charges, plus the payments they say they have received are not the same as the payments to them from my bank, they has less paid, I had asked for a SAR but not recieved this as of yet and the account went to Skye Loans with a different account number etc on 1st June ..worried now that the above will not stand , how do I best deal with this, will Skye loans have to honour the agreement I have in writing ??
  24. I am new here but I have been reading about Idem. They have written to my husband only regarding our joint loan being transferred to them. They have given us a new account number and some basic info regarding paying. They have not confirmed what we should pay, or given any in depth info about the balance. What should we do? Is our loan still secured even though we have not agreed for Idem to have this? Is this even legal as I thought the homeowner has to agree security or the company has to get a court order? I am really confused and need some help as from what I have been reading about Idem they are really nasty and add alsorts of defaults to the account.
  25. My Mom seems to be in the early stages of dementia or has had mini stroke. She is 72 and has always been active until late 2013 when she became ill with a rushed diagnosis of a urine infection. She hasn't been the same since, not cooking, forgetting things, frequently repeating things and not eating much. My Dad has his own health issues and has tried to get her to see a Dr. I've also tried, several times, but she gets angry and doesn't want either of us to say anything or go in with her when she does see a Dr. She says she won't go if we do and thinks everything is ok and that her memory is good for her age. I have power of attorney over finances but not health, and she is still not at that stage if I had. As a family we are concerned but the Dr. will do nothing without her consent and Mom agreeing to let us in on it. I've been as gentle as I can and told her that it's nothing and it's pretty routine to get tested, plus the GP gets a bonus, (she likes them). Has anyone else been through this? My sister in Canada is coming over to try to help but I think she will be disappointed with how stubborn Mom is. I'm cooking meals for them and just trying to look after them. I'm not claiming anything for their care, ( just in case you wonder!). I give them meals but worry they aren't reheating them properly or storing them in the right way. They are always ready to eat when I take them but Mom doesn't want to eat anything other than crisps and bananas most days. I know I have to be patient. My Dad is not, and gets frustrated at having to repeat things. As an example Mom was insisting that the bills had to be paid at the Post Office. Great stuff but on New Years Day? Any suggestions are very welcome.
