Hi all

 

I had ana ccount with RBs it went to defualt got a ccj and now paying them off every month.

 

last month when i phoned i just asked them for my statemnts and within a couple weeks i had the statements sent to me back dated to 2002 - amazed!!! I didn't send any letter to them or post any cheque for £10

 

Now I guess that I can claim for any d/debit cheque refusal charges but before I go ahead ................. what do you reckon about the fact that the banks are being looked at for the charges anyway now? a friend of mine had started to go through a company to help her claim her charges but she was told to hang fire and wait to see what the outcome is first ?????????

 

should I ignore this advice and get adding up now ?

 

any advice greatly appreciated x

Hi Becky,

 

Its certainly worth getting your preliminary letter in at least so that you are in the system. As part of the FSA waiver the banks have agreed to waive the limitations where complaints have been made while the claims are on hold.

 

All the best

well.............

 

I have 20 k outstanding from rbs. Had a loan I couldn't afford in end - I beleive I als had about 6k of charges in that time and probably had PPI.

 

I adcised them I couldnt pay and they told me to WAIT and let the account go to default- so I agreed .

 

I then initially decided to pay 200 per month but as I have a lot of other debt I needed to go to a debt management plan- in the mean time they ccj'd me and I was told to pay 71 per motnh. I do this and I think I have done for about 2 years now. The DMP wasnt for me and so I have paid the account off directly to rbs.

 

Today I have had a letter from them I have to go to court on March 2nd because they have decided it will take 27 years to pay off and they arent happy to wait that that long! I phoned some person (who I had to remind to speak to me in an appropriate manner! - I acted dim by messing up but really im not!)

 

He has said they will be asking for payment now and if I dont comply then they will put an order against my home !!!!! This has made me very upset - the other half doesn't know the half of this and he will not be very happy with me!!!!!!!!!!!

 

any sugestions...................................................

Any chance you could scan the letter, remove any personal details like name, address, reference numbers etc, and post it up here for us to see?

Hi,

hopefully someone with more legal knowledge will come along to help.

 

They have stated that it is going to court on the 2nd March. Have you recieved confirmation from the courts ? [from my limited knowledge, I don't think they can do this, it doesn't give you enough time to challenge them].

 

The CCJ was for £71 month. You have complied with the court ruling. They cannot go for a charging order unless you default on the payments.

 

Have they actually stated

1. What your current debt is ?

2. How much extra they want?

3. how much you have paid?

4. Are they adding interest post judgement?

 

Monday morning. Speak to the courts.Confirm the date.Is it at your local court, if not you can apply to have it moved or ask for an adjournment. They tend to be very helpful.

Do a SAR & CCA request on RBS. This will show whats going on.

 

I bet, since the CCJ you haven't recieved a statement. The banking code of conduct states that they will give you statements regularly. It doesn't say that people who default will be denied this legal right.

Hi,

 

I havent had a statement at all ! I actually pay them 72 per month since the court gave me a ccj - that started with my dmc then I went on to pay 18 per week by standing order.

 

They said that due to fact i was apyinf wekly (this is because its easier forr me this way) I was mis-allocated a mnth and I had a snotty letter about this and I called straight away to make the payment - I was then told on the phne that I would not be persued any further ( this happened back in August 2008) I had been threatened at the time with an application of a charging order but I was assured all was ok until now.

 

 

Also , this snotty letter was for the whole original amount outstanding, the new letter 5 months later is for about 2k less.

 

 

 

 

I have a Notice of Hering , as I cant scan I will type:

 

Its in my local court.

 

it states:

 

TAKE NOTICE that the hearing for variation will take place on 2nd March at blah at your local court.

 

when you should attend ( I boubt very much I can be released ffrom work for this)

 

10 minutes has been allowed for the hearing.

 

Please note: this may be released to another judge, possibly at a different court.

 

Next Page is Appplication notice at Telford County court - on 10/01/09 part a:

 

We RBS apply for an order that the time and rate of payment be re-determined pursuant to CPR 14.13 (1). (2) permission be granted to the claimant to apply for a charging order to secure the instalment judgment.

 

Then on next page:

 

 

I wish to rely on the following evidence in support of this application:

 

The defendants is indebted to the claimants under account numbers xxxxx proceedings were commenced against the defendant on 22/1/07. The court ordered that the judgement sum of £xxxxx be repaid at the rate of £71 per month.

 

If the defendan pays to the claimant the sum of £71 then the debt will be paid in approx 27 years. The defendant owes the sum of £xxxxx to the claimant. At the present time, the claimant has no security or payment of the debt. The claimant therefore wishes to apply for a charging order to secure the debt. If the districe judge is not minded to grant an order that the judgement be varies to forthwith, I respectfully ask the court to grant permission for the claimant to apply for a charging rder to secure the instalment judgement.

Just to add, the bank actually posted me 6 years staements a while ago when I called - there are about 6k worth of charges on there and I am sure that I am still paying interest because the acc that the 72 goes in to is not my loan acc it is the first bank acc that I had with them.

To defend the charging order you'll need a full breakdown of what's happend to your accounts post judgment, as a matter of urgency you should make a request for further information. Forward a copy to court.

 

Paul

 

Dear Sirs

 

REQUEST FOR INFORMATION CPR18

 

I am in receipt of your intended application to seek a charging order dated ******. In order to file a defence I require some information. Given that this matter is now the subject of legal proceedings, you are obliged to disclose under the Civil Procedure Rules, the information and documents detailed below.

 

The information must be furnished within fourteen days of the receipt of this letter. If you fail to comply, this will be reported to the Court, a copy of this letter will be provided as evidence to the same and an Order enforcing your compliance will be sought.

 

1. A true copy of the executed credit agreement and any terms and conditions that applied to the account at the time of default and at the time the account was opened.

 

2. All records you hold on me relevant to this case, including but not limited to:

 

a. Transcriptions of all telephone conversations recorded and any notes made in relation to telephone conversations by your company, or by any previous creditor

b. Where there has been any event in my account history over this period which has required manual intervention by any person, I require disclosure of any indication or notes which have either caused or resulted in that manual intervention, or other evidence of that manual intervention in relation to my account formerly held with Yorkshire bank plc.

c. True copies of any notice of assignment and/or default notice or enforcement notice that you or the original creditor sent me, with a copy of any proof of postage that you hold.

d.Documents relating to any insurance added to the account, including the insurance contract and terms and conditions, date it was added and deleted (if applicable).

e. Details of any collection charge added to the account; specifically, the date it was levied, the amount of the charge, a detailed financial breakdown of how the charge was calculated, and what the charge covers.

f. Specific details of the fees/charges levied by any other agency in respect of this account and a detailed breakdown of said fees/charges and what each charge relates to and on what date said fees/charges were levied.

g. A genuine copy of any notice of fair use of my data as required by the Data Protection Act 1998

h. A list of third party agencies to whom you have disclosed my personal data and a summary of the nature of the information you have disclosed.

i. Copies of statements for the entire duration of the credit agreement.

 

3. Any other documents you seek to rely on in court.

 

 

I will require this information within the next fourteen days. I must advise you that if the information is not forthcoming, I will seek an adjournment as you are effectively denying me the opportunity defend your application.

Yours Faithfully,

( I boubt very much I can be released ffrom work for this)

 

Becky, if this does go ahead, you really need to attend this hearing. Send Paul's letter ASAP.

 

Now that you have some of the statements, calculate exactly all the interest & charges Post Judgement.

 

I am sure that I am still paying interest
Becky, you have to challenge this. They CANNOT add interest after judgement unless your agreement allows it. If the CO is made up of charges & interest after judgement, they will have to provide the court with proof that they can legally do this. The only way to fight this is to get as much data as possible from the bank.

 

Keep us updated

You say they are applying your £72,00 to another account...can you eleborate.

 

It may be the case that RBS have been appropriating your payments in a way most beneficial to the bank.

You'll need to show the judge that you haven't missed a payment on the installment order. There's case law that states if the judgment debtor hasn't defaulted on the installment order then the court shouldn't enforce the debt with a charging order...you will also need to show the judge that you dispute the debt due to unlawfull chgarges and request they provide a copy of the loan agreement. Don't worry we'll help put a sleletin argument together.

I woud also make a CCA request asap...the bank will refuse to comply, so at the hearing make the judge aware of this and state you need to see a copy of the original agreement's terma and conditions in relation to the banks legal right to levy charges and interest post judgment.

update really.........................

 

RBS have never been forthcoming with any information to date.

 

On 2/3/09 it was ordered that the application for redetermination be struck out upon neither party attending.

 

 

RBS have now instaed sent me more letter s they all start with

Formal Notice of Intention to file a default and to take action to recvoer the debt.

 

The first one is for an amount o/s on my bank acc and they are adding interest which states will still be added accordingly.

 

Second one states same thing amount o/s then some interest-2nd bank acc

 

Third is for my laon acc there is an arrears of £xxxx.xx which should be paid by 14/4/09- obviously i dont have that!

 

Its strange though because I thought that because I am paying in to acc 1 weekly, why would they be adding interest still ?

 

are they trying to go through the 'correct' procedures now in order to get an inforcement order?

 

any comments welcome x

    • you realise Gick its very easy to make win 10 look like win 7.? I wouldn't move from 7 because I do lots of RS232 and other basic comms stuff with vintage gear and past 7 it would not longer do what I want.   win10 put everything back and works better than 7  ive even got it on a very old 1gb ram vio pc  if you want help pm me and I can sort things for you. 
    • I think that's what we've seen them trot out before  cant see a default notice yet mind
    • well what they send before was well below the required stuff. defence is not due till/by 4pm may 3rd.   so incomplete / failure of previous CCA request simply needs to be added to our std holding /no paperwork defence re the way to search here detailed in post 33.   something like   Particulars of Claim  (1)The Defendant entered into a consumer crediticon Act 1974 regulated agreement with Vanquis under account reference xxxxxxxxxx  (2)The Defendant failed to maintain the required payments and a default notice was served and not complied with.  (3) The Agreement was later assigned to the Claimant on 30/09/2014 and notice was given to the Defendant.  (4)Despite repeated requests for payment, the sum of £1,597.56 remains due and outstanding.  And the Claimant claims   (a)The said sum of £1,597.56   (b) interest pursuant to s69 County Courts Act 1984 at the rate of 8% per annum   from the date of assignment to the date of issue,accruing at a daily rate of £0.350,  but limited to one year,being £127.80 (costs) then signed by Lowell Solicitors Limited.  #####Defence###### The Defendant contends that the particulars of claim are vague and generic in nature.  The Defendant accordingly sets out its case below and relies on CPR r 16.5 (3) in relation to any particular allegation to which a specific response has not been made.    2. Paragraph 1 is noted. I have in the past had an agreement with [insert original creditor]  but do not recognise this specific account number or recollect any outstanding debt and have therefore requested clarification by way of a CPR 31.14 and section 78 request..    3. Paragraph 2 is denied I have not been served with a Default Notice pursuant to the consumer credit Act 1974.    4. Paragraph 3 is denied. I am unaware of any legal assignment or Notice of Assignment pursuant to the Law and Property Act 1925 Section 136(1)    5. On receipt of the claim form, the Defendant sent a request by way of a section 78 pursuant to the Consumer Credit Act 1974, for a copy of the agreement, the Claimant has yet to comply and remains in default of said request.  The claimant has since complied and disclosed various documents however unable to comply with disclosing a valid full copy of the executed agreement on which their claim relies upon.    6. A further request made via CPR 31.14 to the claimants solicitor, requesting disclosure of documents on which the Claimant is basing their claim. The claimant has not complied, but has stated a general extension of time to retrieve the documents, to date nothing has been received.    7. It is therefore not accepted with regards to the Defendant owing any monies to the Claimant and the Claimant is put to strict proof to:  a) show how the Defendant has entered into an agreement and;  b) show how the Defendant has reached the amount claimed for and;  c) show the nature of the breach and evidence by way of a Default Notice pursuant to sec 88 CCA1974  d) show how the Claimant has the legal right, either under statute or equity to issue a claim    8. As per Civil Procedure 16.5 it is expected that the claimants prove the allegation that the money is owed    9. On the alternative, as the Claimant is an assignee of a debt, it is denied that the Claimant has the right to lay a claim due to contraventions of section 136 of the Law of Property Act and section 82A of the Consumer Credit Act 1974    10. By reasons of the facts and matters set out above, it is denied that the Claimant is entitled to the relief claimed or any relief.    
    • I can’t help but think that we’re massively over complicating things here, pick up the phone and ask to speak with the PM. Explain the issue and ask them to sort it out. I could solve 99.999999% of problems within an hour or so provided someone actually told me what the problem was. By the time I was receiving letters spanning several pages and having to dig through notes and speak to people to get their accounts of what happened it could take weeks to gather the info and get replies from everyone. Just pick up the phone at lunchtime on Tuesday, ask for the PM and if they’re unavailable ask when they can be contacted and speak to them so they have an opportunity to resolve what is probably a very simple issue rather than trawling out weeks of waiting. 
  • Our picks

    • This is a bit of a lengthy one but I’ll summerise best as possible.
       
      THIS IS HOW THE PHONECALL WENT 
       
      I was contacted by future comms by phone, they stated that they could beat any phone contract I have , (I am a limited company but just myself that needs a business phone and I am the only worker) 
      I told future comms my deal, £110 per month with a phone and a virtual landline, they confirmed that they could beat that, £90 per month with a phone , virtual landline  they also confirmed they would pay Vodafone (previous provider) the termination fee. As I am in business, naturally I was open to making a deal. So we proceeded. 
      Future comms then revealed that the contract would be with PLAN.COM and the airtime would be provided by 02, I instantly told them that this would break the deal as I have poor 02 signal in the house where I live as my partner is on 02 and constantly complaining about bad signal
      the salesman assured me he would send a signal booster box out with the phone so I would have perfect signal.
      so far so good.....
      i then explained this is the only mobile phone I use for business and pleasure, so therefore I didn’t want any disconnection time in the slightest between the switchover from Vodafone to 02
      the salesman then confirmed that the existing phone would only be disconnected once the new phone was switched on.
      so far so good....

    • 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.
