I am trying to folow this thread. At the moment I have just found out that as a result of Swift Advances reporting to equifax and neglecting to mention the time order and reduction I won against them in 2009 feb my wife's perfect credit rating is now so bad we have had to put our house on the market to get out of the swift loan. The time order proved an expensive route even though I won because they charged me via Eastern plus they hired lawyers which I was forced to pay for. Something like £3500 was added plus the credit rating problem makes me feel desperate. At 69 I could do without this. I have witness statements signed by Mark White if anyone's interested

 

Hi Joesmylandlord,

 

The charges made via Eatsern Counselling were levied by an unlicensed trading style and were criminally applied write to Swift Advances plc and tell them... demand them back with interest at contract rate...include this in your section 140 claim so the Courts knows about it.

The OFT have confirmed that this trading style was dropped by Swift Advances plc in 1996 and is since then been unlicensed ........refer to setion 39 (2) of the CCA 1974 amended 2006,that is a criminal offence and the Court can rule it so.

 

PS would like a copy of Mark Whites witness statement if possible ..would come in very handy

here is a quote from a case of Wilson V Secretary of state - a law that has been argued through appeal courts and been accepted as precedent

Quote:

175. The present is said to be an example of that kind of case. Since my noble and learned friend Lord Nicholls of Birkenhead has given a full account of the facts, I need mention only the most important. In 1999 Mrs Wilson entered into a loan agreement with First County Trust Ltd ("First County"). The agreement was regulated by the Consumer Credit Act 1974 ("the 1974 Act"). Mrs Wilson pawned her BMW car as security. Under section 61(1)(a), if the debtor has not signed a document in the prescribed form containing all the prescribed terms, the agreement is "not properly executed", with the result that it "is enforceable against the debtor or hirer on an order of the court only": section 65(1). More particularly, in terms of section 127(3), if an agreement does not contain all the prescribed terms, the court is not to make an enforcement order unless the debtor has signed a document which does contain all the prescribed terms. Mrs Wilson's position was that the document in the prescribed form which she signed did not show the correct "amount of the credit", one of the prescribed terms. Moreover, she had signed no other document containing the prescribed terms. As a result, by reason of section 127(3) the court would not be able to make an enforcement order.

Failure to disclose commissions and fees

Where a lender pays commission to a broker or other financial introducer the sums paid to the introducer should be disclosed on the loan agreement under the heading total charges for the credit. If the lender has failed to disclose the broker’s commission as part of the total charge to you for the credit then the agreement may be unenforceable.

Watch out for the word may in the above paragraph, it is only a secret commission if it is totally undisclosed and most lenders have put in the agreement terms we may pay your broker a commission if this is in your terms then you do not have a full secret commission, although you do have a claim for the repayment of this commission, but it will not make the loan unenforceable.

Good advice WP3, I have an undisclosed commission payment, and my terms and conditions read that my lender will USUALLY pay the broker a commission for introducing the borrower to the lender, so I can expect to get that payment plus interest back..........but I also have a good case for unfair terms in my agreement on top of the undisclosed commission payment.

I wish you the very best of luck WP3 and hope you return with a BIG SMILE on your face. Please let us know how you get on.

Hi Sparkie in your last reply to my thread on the 30th July which I am only getting to reply to now you say that you were just back from Northern Ireland. Could you please point me in the direction of someone who could help me in Northern Ireland as that is where I am from. At the minute I am awaiting a response from Swift with regards to the figures I provided them in which I have calculated that I have been overcharged by nearly £17,500.00. In their last correspondence to me on the 9th July 2010 they said that they would have their investigation finished and a reply to me by the 20th August 2010. I also looked up on the OFT registrar for the company who sold me the mortgage who was First Class Mortgages and they do not appear on the registrar. I understand that they went out of business in January 2007 according to Swift. Grateful for any help

Swift have this word "May" in their additional information...but I have it sworn by Mark White under oath nand the judgement summary to confirm this " Swift Advances do not pay commissin as such nor do they have any agents" I have the evidence that proves he "misled" the court... ( tongue in cheek )....on both counts..........that can be construed as a deliberate attempt to conceall the truth.

Hi Cas,

 

'Went out of business' is putting it mildly:-

 

Broker banned for not disclosing conviction

 

8 January 2007

 

By Robyn Hall

 

A broker who failed to disclose a previous conviction for conspiracy to obtain property by deception has been banned by the Financial Services Authority.

 

John Lepine, a director of Barking-based specialist intermediary First Class Mortgages, is thought to be one of the first individual industry practitioners to have a 'prohibition order' imposed on them by the regulator.

The ban, which came into force on December 22 2006, prohibits Lepine from performing any function in relation to any regulated activity. First Class Mortgages is a sub-prime specialist, originating about £180m of mortgage and secured loans business for its lender panel.

Lepine, who is a co-owner of the company, was given a three-year jail sentence in November 1989 at the Inner London Crown Court after being found guilty of conspiracy to obtain property by deception. The Court of Appeal ratified his conviction in 1990.

 

 

 

At his appeal hearing, Lepine was described as committing "a serious fraud of a kind which does the City great harm". The offence took place during a period when Nomura Bank International employed Lepine as a foreign exchange trader.

Yet despite serving a jail term, Lepine failed to declare his conviction to the FSA when First Class Mortgages applied to be a directly authorised firm in 2004.

According to the FSA, Lepine also failed to disclose his conviction on other occasions. When asked if he had made full disclosure of his conviction in applying for a licence under the Consumer Credit Act, Lepine confirmed that he had not.

The Office of Fair Trading has confirmed to Mortgage Strategy that it is conducting its own investigation into First Class Mortgages and is currently considering its credit licence.

In its final notice to Lepine, the FSA says: "The prohibition order arises from Mr Lepine's conduct while employed by Nomura Bank International. Mr Lepine was convicted on November 16 1989 at the Inner London Crown Court of conspiracy to obtain property by deception and received a custodial sentence.

"When we asked Mr Lepine about the non-disclosure of his conviction, he gave an account of the matter which does not accord with either the offence for which he was convicted, nor with the terms of the judgment of the Court of Appeal."

Industry insiders are not surprised by the developments. They describe Lepine's case as a time bomb that is set to blow up in the industry's face.

The owner of one of the UK's biggest brokerages, who wished to remain anonymous, says: "John Lepine is the tip of the iceberg. The industry knows it. So does the FSA.

"I am aware of enquiries that are underway into the affairs of other prominent people in the industry who may have had momentary memory lapses when they were applying for authorisation."

Lepine was unavailable for comment when Mortgage Strategy contacted the Barking offices of First Class Mortgages.

In an attempt to defend the non-disclosure of his conviction, Lepine told the FSA that he "had a moment of denial". He also said that he was concerned that if he did not receive authorisation "First Class Mortgages may close and up to 60 employees may lose their jobs". However, a spokesman for the FSA says the ban is indefinite and Lepine, after a period of time, will be able to reapply for authorisation if he can prove he is a fit and proper person.

 

 

The OFT then revoked the licences of First Class Mortgages Limited and was minded to revoke that of First Class Loans Limited but the company surrendered it.

You can still find details of the historic FSA permissions and OFT licences on the relevant registers. These are the OFT entries:-

Hi sparkie hope your doing well and getting far in your battles. I was reading this judgment below and am I right in believing that the Defendant won his case using the s140 unfair relationship argument. I don't know if it is of any relevance but I did find it interesting reading and wandered if there was anything in this judgment that we could use....if not then no probs.
