Hi,

Thankyou. Sorry, the wording/figures on the agreement are quite small. Is there a way I can send it to you in an enlarged format to make it readable? The figures aren't crossed out, just small! If necessary, I could type it all out and send that to you?

Hi, Hope you are around Paul to look at this for me please. I have got to file a full defence in one week, by 16 September and I am now panicking. I don't have anything except what you advised to get the judgement set aside.

Decided to type the agreement documents out as couldn't seem to enlarge them, so here goes.

 

1) Agreement letter from June 2005 from Welcome

 

Dear (name)

 

Hire Purchase Agreement Number ---------

 

May I first thank you for choosing Welcome Finance Services to help you with your car purchase from (name of co).

 

With regard to the above account I am pleased to enclose your copy of the legal agreement. The purpose of this letter is to detail the payments and products we have arranged with you. If any of the details below are incorrect, or you have any queries, please contact the office on 0115 977 8800 where a member of staff will be pleased to assist you.

 

Payment details:

Have chosen to pay your account Monthly with payments of £244.63 due on 01 of each month. Your first payment is due on Monday 01 August 2005 which will be paid by direct debit. The period you chose to take your account over was 48 months.

 

Payment Protection Insurance:

Your payments are covered by Payment Protection Insurance for 48 months. This insurance only covers the first named person on your legal agreement. It will pay your monthly payment in the event of accident, sickness, redundancy and death. Please see the leaflet enclosed for full details of what this policy does and does not cover.

 

Mechanical Breakdown Insurance:

Not Applicable.

 

Emergency Recovery with Legal Assistance:

Not Applicable.

Shortfall Insurance:

The Shortfall Insurance, which covers you for 48 months, will pay off all or part of the shortfall between the amount you get for your motor insurer and the finance settlement figure. If you take out Payment Protection Insurance (PPP), a warranty or emergency recovery as part of the finance deal, the settlement of these elements is not covered by the Shortfall Insurance (although you will receive a rebate of the PPP premium). Any arrears are also excluded. Shortfall insurance covers the settlement on the vehicle itself, the shortfall premium and the finance charges on these.

 

Collision Call Legal Expenses Insurance:

Not Applicable.

 

For all of the above products you will be sent additional information via the warranty company. We suggest that you keep this with your Welcome pack.

 

As part of our Customer Care Programme we will regularly contact you regarding your account to ensure high service standards and the possibility of additional finance. Remember, if you refer a friend or relative to us who is successful in obtaining a loan, you would be eligible to receive £25 worth of gift vouchers of your choice.

 

Can I once again thank you for choosing Welcome Financial Services to help you finance the purchase of your car and I hope you are happy with the loan and service you received.

 

Yours sincerely

IMPORTANT - READ THIS CAREFULLY TO FIND OUT ABOUT YOUR RIGHTS

 

The Consumer Credit Act 1974 lays down certain requirements for your protection which should have been complied with when this agreement was made. If they were not, the creditor cannot enforce this agreement without getting a court order. The Act also gives you a number of rights.

 

1) You can settle this agreement at any time by giving notice in writing and paying off the amount you owe under the agreement which may be reduced by a rebate. Examples indicating the amount you have to pay appear in the agreement.

 

2) If you have received unsatisfactory goods or services paid for under this agreement, you may have a right to sue the supplier, creditor or both.

 

3) If the contract is not fulfilled, perhaps because the supplier has gone out of business, you may still be able to sue the creditor.

 

If you would like to know more about your rights under the Act, contact either your local Trading Standards Department or your nearest Citizens Advice Bureau.

 

TERMINATION: YOUR RIGHTS

 

You have a right to end this Agreement. To do so, you should write to the person you make your payments to. They will then be entitled to the return of the goods and to half the total amount payable under this Agreement, that is £4,616.50. If you have already paid at least this amount plus any overdue instalments and have taken reasonable care of the goods, you will not have to pay any more.

 

REPOSSESSION : YOUR RIGHTS

 

If you do not keep to your side of this Agreement but you have paid at least one third of the total amount payable under this agreement, that is £3,077.67 the creditor may not take back the goods against your wishes unless he gets a court order. (In Scotland he may need to get a court order at any time). If he does take the goods without your consent or a court order, you have the right to get back any money that you have paid under this agreement.

Oh, I hope someone can help me! Please! I have another thread which is Please Help with Setting Judgment Aside - Welcome Finance (next page) but this has progressed as we were successful in getting it set aside but now desperately need help with the Defence! pt2537 was helping me but hasn't come back to me, I know he is very busy but if anyone else can help I would be very grateful.

 

I don't even know what a defence looks like! Do I need a special form, it has to be in by 4pm on 16 Sept so do we need to attend some sort of hearing then or is it just to hand it in?

 

I hope someone can offer some advice please!

The defence will be a response to the allegations contained in the Particulars of Claim (PoC). Post the PoC with information about what's so wrong with it and a draft Defence will follow.

Thankyou surfaceagent. The Particulars of Claim state:

 

The Claimant's claim is for the sum of £8---.-- being monies due from the Defendant to the Claimant under a regulated Credit Agreement made in writing between the Defendant and Claimant under a reference -------

 

The Defendant has failed to make payment in accordance with the terms of the agreement and a default notice has been served upon the Defendant pursuant to Section 87(1) of the Consumer Credit Act 1974.

 

The Claimant claims the sum of £8---.--.

 

We put on the Applic to Set Aside form:

 

"The amount claimed was/is in dispute. I attach my initial letter to Cohens (representing Welcome) dated 5/8/07 requesting a breakdown of the amount claimed. I did not receive a response. My letter was sent by Recorded Delivery.

I received the claim form dated 28/8/07, acknowledged it online and telephoned Cohens who informed me that they would put "everything on hold" as the amount was in dispute and they would let us have the breakdown they requested. We are still awaiting the breakdown of charges.

We did not make this application earlier as we were told by several people that there was nothing we could do until we ourselves discovered this available course of action."

 

Can I give you the link to my previous thread where there is lots of information about this case because I am not sure which bits of advice/info are the most relevant for you. Here is the link:

Hi Prudence, can I ask how much you have actually paid them so far before your hubby became ill? I will try my best to help here - and as a litigant in person your defence does not have to be in legal-ese if you know what I mean.

 

On first read of your thread it looks as if the PPI was mis-sold and you have encountered a lot of brick walls whilst trying to make the best of things.

I did actually submit a claim to the Ombudsman that we believed the PPI was missold over a year ago and I'm afraid to say I did not get back to them in time with some information requested due to elderly Mother being ill, plus financial difficulties, etc, just was going through a bad time. I am so mad that missed the deadline. Is all hope lost?

You must have paid more than that - otherwise they would have taken the car. In your first post you said you had paid £3300. I presume you still have the car? What I want to try and work out is how much you actually would owe them if the PPI was removed. And also see if we can get the debt written off because the PPI was mis-sold and was not available to you when you needed it.

On what basis did you get the set aside? Was it because they had jumped the gun on issuing the claim or just that you disputed the amount?

I need to go to bed, but I will be back tomorrow. Do you know why the court agreed to the set aside? Was it because the debt was generally in dispute or did they attach particular importance to any of your statements?

Ok, thanks Goldlady, really appreciate your support. I will look out the Court form that came through after it was set aside to see if it says on there. I know I was going on to the judge abou the lack of communication from Welcome but he kept asking me 'yes, but what are the grounds' and then I quoted the three things I mentioned above which he made note of. I will be back tomorrow, goodnight Goldlady.

Hi again, I will be away until Sunday night - going to see if our caravan is still there and hasn't floated away down a river somewhere:eek:. I have been thinking about your defence. I am not very good at the words and most of mine have been just 'telling it how it is'.

 

I think what you need to say is that when you borrowed the money (is it joint or in hubby's name only?) you took out the PPI because you believed it would cover you should it be needed. You then need to explain about the arguments you had with them about whether his injury was a pre-existing condition etc etc. And how badly you struggled to make the part payments. What I am driving at is that if the insurance had been valid as you had expected then the loan would have been fully repaid. And that you are asking the court to write off the outstanding balance....

 

As a safety net in case the judge isn't in the mood for writing it off completely, at the very least you want the PPI refunding. By my calculations with the payments you have made the outstanding amount, if the PPI is totally removed from the figures, would be around £4900.

 

If you have a go at putting all the aspects together I will give it some more thought while I am sitting in the sun drinking wine;) (wishful thinking - I know I can get the wine from Tesco but not sure about the sunshine). Not sure if Paul will happen along but I can try and get some help if needed.

 

Let me know if you find out what clinched the set aside. I am not well up on the title on the agreement bit you mentioned, but will see what I can find out.

OK, I've read that thread. Strange they are not pursuing you for the car as well.

 

The Particulars of Claim refer to a default notice served under section 87(1) of the Act. I don't think this was revealed in your previous thred. Are you able to post a copy of it?

 

If not, answer these questions:

 

[1] what is the date of the notice?

[2] how was it sent to you?

[3] when did you receive it?

[4] what does the notice require you to do to comply with the notice?

[5] when does the notice require you to have complied with it by?

[6] are there any parts of the notice in capital letters? If so what does it say? (copy this word for word exactly as it appears in the notice)

Thanks surfaceagent. Goldlady has also been helping me with this problem. I believe it was sent in the post, though I cannot be sure to be honest as it was an extremely stressful period. I think it may be quicker for me to type out the Default Notice exactly as it is. Here goes, and thanks again for any help you can offer:

 

IMPORTANT - YOU SHOULD READ THIS CAREFULLY

We wrote this to the solicitors on 5.8.07 by R.D.

 

I am in receipt of your letter dated 25 July and would advise you that I have written to Welcome Finance many times now via Recorded Delivery mail and am still awaiting their reply.

 

I dispute the amount owed which you quote - £8075.05 - and would like you to supply me with a full breakdown of this amount in writing as soon as possible.

 

to which we received no reply. Then we sent this on 24.9.07 to Welcome with a copy to Solicitors and also a copy to the Northampton Court (we had received the Claim papers late August) whether this makes any difference!

 

In view of the fact that we have not received to any replies to our letters sent to you by Recorded Delivery or to our letter to (solicitors), we have no option but to terminate our contract forthwith.

 

I am beginning to wonder if we do have a good case now. I was very optimistic after correspondence on the forum with pt2537 as he said we could put together a "killer case"! But now I am feeling very nervous. Will we be required to see the judge when we submit the defence (if I manage to get it together) on Tuesday? Is there a special form I need?

they are unable to pursue for the car as the agreement is not secured upon the car unless it is a Hire purchase agreement and must be headed as such( see schedule 1 SI1983/1553)

 

because it is a basic credit agreement they can only pursue for the sum loaned under the agreement

Hi Paul, It does say Hire Purchase Agreement at the bottom of the agreement - hopefully this doesn't count? Also if you have time I would be grateful for any further advice. Many thanks, P
