    • I called the business centre that M&F were located at and they advised me to call BCWM, which I did.   A lady spoke to me and said she didn't have any information to hand so I'd have to email them my request. She asked me to provide as much info as possible including my full info so being vague might not be an option.   What do you think of me putting the following:   Dear XXX   It was lovely talking to you earlier. As discussed, my query is in relation to the following piece of land owned by M & F Finance (Ireland) Ltd, which I believe you manage:   Portwood Court, Great Portwood Street, Stockport, SK1 2ED (Title Number : MAN24187)   I have a possible impending legal matter that I'm investigating and therefore need to know who signed up Civil Enforcement Ltd (CEL) to manage the car park and whether CEL currently has legal permission to enter into contracts on your behalf.   Any information you can provide would be extremely appreciated.   Do you think this is okay? Should I just sign the email with my name but omit my address?
    • Hi there,   I just wanted to seek some advice as I've been sent a "Parking Charge Notice" for temporarily stopping outside the arrivals terminal at Southend Airport to pick up my disabled father, and now they want £60 off of me. I've appealed, which, as I expected, did nothing.  Should I just let the case go to court, as i feel I have a good defense. My Father is disabled due to the fact that he suffers from Peripheral Arterial Disease and Spinal Stenosis and can only walk short distances before his legs begin to seize up and turn to lead. This is why I had to temporarily stop for a short period outside the terminal. It was a cold, dark evening, pouring with rain, I didn't see any signs. My only concern was getting my Mother and Disabled Father out of the cold weather, into the car and off home.'   Any help appreciated, Thanks          
    • On the matter of the shed, I would move to have the lot replaced immediately. Inventory the contents of the shed, take photographs of their condition and then do what you can to deliver the contents of the shed to your parents. If you continue to keep their property – or at least property to which they are asserting title – on your land then this can only help them and be an encumbrance to you. Ideally you would instruct them to come along and collect it – but the easiest thing to do is simply to put it all into the back of the car or van or something and then to deliver it to your parents. Warn them that it is going to arrive and make sure it all arrives in good condition at a time when you know they are going to be in. Once it is taken to their property, photograph it again and inventory it again so that there are no queries later on. It will be a good idea if you have somebody with you to witness what goes on. If your parents have keys to anything else on your property such as the front door or a back garden door in order to access the shed, you should change those locks immediately and write your parents and tell them that the locks are now been changed, that their own keys will no longer fit and that they are not authorised to enter onto your property in any circumstances. However, I suggest that you deal with the contents of the shed first so that there are no suggestions that you are trying to hang on to some property which I suppose is of no interest to you

I suspect that whoever did order the statements did not put a note on your account as to where to send them. Call them again and simply say that you ordered copy statements a few weeks ago and you haven't received them. The bank should re-order them and not charge you another fee for copy statements. make sure that they do put a note on your account or you will be waiting and waiting and......

I personally rang them after 4 weeks and then sent the DPA letter instead. They seem to have been told to be as awkward as possibe. They sent my letter back because I hadn't signed it.

Hiya

Im new to this btw, but Ive just rang the national call centre tel:- 0845 600 2803 (option 2) and asked for all statements for the last six years, they said it would be a £5 charge per statement (Ive asked for two in total) and will take 14 working days so approx 3 weeks by sounds of it.

If you havent received them after three weeks give them a call or send them a letter perhaps.

Hope this helps

I kicked up that much of a fuss, I didn't have to pay for the historical statements and I got them within 3 days, but was adv 4-6 working days.

 

 

I told them what I wanted them for and said I wasn't happy with the bank.

Write to the bank and say that as the current balance of your account is in dispute they must not file a default on your account until the matter is settled. If they do place a default on your record then contact the Credit Reference Agencies and as them to remove it stating that the matter is in dispute and that you do not believe you are liable for the amount.


BEFORE starting your claim read through the FAQ's and if there's something you aren't sure of then ask.

The account balance is in dispute.Write to them and tell them this,and that if they file a default,you will pursue them for defamation of character.

 

then sit back and watch them back pedal,as you chuckle to yourself.... ;)

Carry on with your claim and add the extra £30 to your next letter. You can keep adding charges right up to the Court filing stage

You are almost in the same position as me, except they have already served a default onto me. I was paying the account back £120 a month by standing order set up by me but they were still charging me £90 in charges so i stopped the standing order as it was pointless.

 

Do you all think i should write to them saying now the account is in dispute and i am looking to get this default removed?? Still waiting for all my statements.

 

How do you put your progress at the bottom of your chats??

How long have you been waiting?

 

The companies you have approached (I presume it is three?) have 40 days from receipt of your payment in which to comply. Some do need gentle reminders however and if you look here

 

http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/bank-templates-library/6986-data-protection-act-non.html

 

you will find the templates that you can use for this.

 

Did you send your cheques via recorded delivery or have you got proof of postage?

 

Perhaps you could detail who you are claiming from and which address you used for the DPA requests.

 

However, I notice that you already know roughly what the charges are, so yes, if you are confident that you can compile a claim then you do not need to wait. If you miscalculated, you can always add to your claim in any case.

Ok, here is the address for NatWest.

 

National Westminster Bank Plc

135 Bishopsgate

London

EC2M 3UR

 

 

Do you recall (or did you make a note) of when they said they have received your third cheque? The point is, you sent it, if they have not cashed it that is hardly your concern.

 

If the 40 day deadline has expired (from when they confirmed receipt of your cheque) then send them the third letter from this page.

 

http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/bank-templates-library/6986-data-protection-act-non.html

 

 

Regarding court proceedings, if you have your statements, or a good idea of what your charges are then you can proceed with the first letter. You can find that here.

 

http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/bank-templates-library/671-letter-preliminary-approach-repayment.html

 

You can send both letters at once, they go to different departments within the bank in any case.

 

Regarding recorded delivery, it's value is questionable. If you request proof of postage from the Post Office this will be sufficient should Nat West continue to claim that they have not recieved your letters.

 

It is important now that you stick to your timetable, if you give them 14 days for example, then write again on the 15th day and move to the next stage. They rely on the fact that many people will give up or not follow through with court action.

Hi :)

 

Know how you feel...

 

This is madness and a waste of our time. Call CS department on 0845 6052605 and just asked for last 6 yrs statments and they will send them in the post within a week for a fee of £5.00.

See my thread...

http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/natwest-bank/9463-well-here-goes-2.html

It worked. Now I have 3 full copies! My account was debited £5 the day after making the call. As for recorded delivery Snatchwest are not signing for them, amazing but true, but proof of posting is the start of your 40 day count down - if you have it.

 

Good luck

What's the "Gentle reminder" you speak of?

 

Its here

 

http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/bank-templates-library/6986-data-protection-act-non.html

 

and consists of three letters depending on how far into your 40 day wait you are or if you are over the 40 days then the final letter is a letter before action for non-compliance with the Data Protection Act.

This is all very well but not everybody making claims still banks with them, how would you propose I get copy statements for example, given that I closed my account in 2002?

 

Madness it may be, but it works.

Hi

 

Now you sit and wait. (But not for too long!)

 

If the claim is filed then they have 14 days to file their "Acknowledgment of Service" which they will probably do. That then gives them another 14 days in order to file a defence, admit the claim, pay the claim or admit part of the claim.

 

I would suggest you read the Nat West threads and see how others have got on. Nat West will pay you, but be prepared for a battle.
