FinancialNinja Vs Triton/RBos

Recommended Posts

Firstly, This is my first post so please bear with me.

About 18 months ago I left my then wife and moved out of the then marital home, then following lengthy legal proceedings (Divorce) I remortgaged said house and moved back in only to find that I had debts that I didn't know about and worse still they hadn't been paid and even worse still THEY WERE IN MY NAME!!

 

Having spoken to everyone and agreed to pay I found that I couldn't manage making all the repayments and fell behind. I then had a good month at work and upon reciept of my commission I paid RBos £1100 towards the debt that I had with them:(

 

The day after they cashed the cheque I recieved a letter from Triton telling me that I had 7 days to pay the full balance or they would start legals. I called both them and RBoS explained that I had paid and there must be a mistake, however they insisted that no mistake had been made and I felt terrible, so I adopted the bury your head in the sand approach and ignored them both.

 

Several months later I recieved another letter explaining that they would be sending someone to my house etc etc and at that point I panicked and googled Triton. The search directed me to this site and a post by Alan From Derby who had posted the CCA letter to another user having problems with Triton.

 

I sent off the CCA letter recorded 13 days ago with my £1 PO and eagerly awaited the response, first a letter from Triton informing me that they had sent the file back to RBoS and then nothing!!! Yesterday I recieved a letter explaining that they "did not have sufficiant information to satisfy my request" and that "they were treating my outstanding balance as discharged and the credit agreement as ended"

 

I would like to thank EVERYONE who has contributed to this site and enabled me to solve just one of many problems, I had claimed bank charges back previously via the Martin Lewis WS but I didn't even think this was possible!!

 

Questions:

 

Can I ask RBoS to remove the default on my credit rating?

 

Can they ever come back and chase the money?

 

Can I do anything to help CAG?

 

Once again thanks to all!!

Hi FinancialNinja and welcome to CAG. Well done on sorting out your problem with RBS.

 

Can I ask RBoS to remove the default on my credit rating?

 

Default removal can be difficult, it's not impossible though. Did you receive a default notice?

 

only to find that I had debts that I didn't know about and worse still they hadn't been paid and even worse still THEY WERE IN MY NAME!!

 

Is this a case of your ex took them out and you don't want to get her in trouble by telling the credit card companies this?

 

Can they ever come back and chase the money?

 

It's highly unlikely that they would, but just keep the letter safe in case.

 

Can I do anything to help CAG?

Hi Rory,

I don't recall recieving a default notice.

 

Is this a case of your ex took them out and you don't want to get her in trouble by telling the credit card companies this?

 

It's a little more complicated than that, but in all honesty yes, we have two children together that I see lots of and I am sure that a fraud case etc would not be good for their formative years. Also i obtained a court order for financial matters when the divorce was going through and within contains that I would pay all marital debt. So I just decided to take it on the chin and deal with it.

Okay, you can then go down the route of you never received one. They would have to prove that they sent one (it's a legal requirement to send a default notice to set out how the breach can be resolved before defaulting you).

 

Donation on it's way!!

 

Very much appreciated. Thank you :)

All has been quiet on this one for a while, however I have been trying to get the default removed as I have no recolection of them ever sending me a default notice.

 

I sent my letter asking that they remove the default and they replied with a good old GET LOST!!

 

I then sent another letter as they were stating in their reply that "I agreed when I signed the CCA that they could process my data" My argument is that as they couldn't find the CCA then surely thay can not quote the terms within!!

 

I recieved their second reply in which they advise me that I can approach the ICO and they might help etc etc.

 

Having got absolutely nowhere with the ICO I rang the FSO yesterday and spoke to a very helpful guy who listened to my problems and agreed that they are not playing fair. So they are sending a letter and we will see how they handle this one!!

 

I'll keep you posted

    • The FSA has announced large fines against DB UK Bank Limited (trading as DB Mortgages) - DeutscheBank and also against Redstone for their unfair treatment of their customers.
      Please see the links below for summaries and full details from the FSA website.
      It is now completely clear that any arrears charges which exceed actual administrative costs are unfair and therefore unlawful.
      Furthemore, irresponsible lending practices are also unfair and unlawful.
      Additionally there are other unfair practices including unarranged counsellor visits - even if they have been attempted.
      You are entitled to refuse counsellor visits and not incur any charges.
      Any charges for counsellor visits must not seek to make profits. The cost of the visits must be passed on to you at cost price.
      We are hearing stories of people being charged for counsellor visits for which there is no evidence that they were even attempted.
      It is clear that some mortgage lenders are trying to cheat you out of your money.
      You should ascertain how much has been taken from you and claim it back. The chances of winning are better than 90%. It is highly likely that the lender will attempt to avoid court action and offer you back your money.
      However, you should ensure that you receive a proper rate of interest and this means that you should be seeking at least restitutionary damages - which would be much higher than the statutory 8%.
      Furthermore, you should assess whether the paying of demands for unlawful excessive charges has also out you further into arrears and if this has caused you further penalties in terms of extra interest or any other prejudice. This should be claimed as well.
      If excessive unlawful charges have resulted in your credit file being affected, then you should take this into account also when working out exactly what you want by way of remedy from the lender.
      You should consult others on these forums when considering any offer.
      You must not make any complaint through the Ombudsman. your time will be wasted, you will wait up to 2 yrs and there will be a minimal 8% award of interest and no account will be taken of any other damage you have suffered.
      You must make your complaint through the County Court for a rapid and effective remedy.

    • I am new here but very glad to find my way here and would welcome any input.
       
      i purchased a brand new campervan conversion from Hillside Leisure (175 miles from our home) on July 26th for £31,000 and, within 48 hours, during a storm, the alarm began to sound incessantly. We could not get it to stop, even after trying everything listed in the manual. We phoned Hillside on Saturday July 28th around 2.00pm. The young man who answered the phone said he would seek the advice of their technician and call us back, which he did. The technician told us that they, Hillside, couldn’t help, but that we should take the van to Nissan (the van is a Nissan) as the fault would lie with one of their components.
