    • Dear Consumer Action Group, thanks so much for all of your help. The claim went to mediation and some of the points that you raised in discussion earlier in this conversation (i.e. that the text message constitutes an amendment to an existing contract) were particularly helpful and we negotiated a settlement through the mediation service of the courts. Donation to support your website has been sent. Many thanks again.

    • Thank you. I've looked at the general page for treadmills and they specifically referred to using your treadmill in a garage and the only warning they give is about headroom. The fact that the temperature/humidity of the garage is not referred to indicates that it is not a problem. You have found a specific reference to the garage problem in the page dealing with that particular model of treadmill. As you have already indicated, there is no way of knowing whether that references a recent addition. Looking at the manual for that model treadmill, they do refer to the problem of using unheated garages and in fact the wording they use is exactly the wording which is used on the sweatband website – so you can take it that it has been copied from the manual. Of course that doesn't tell us when the words were added. I have looked at Internet archives and although I see that copies of the sweatband.com website have been taken from time to time, there seems to be no archive copies of that specific website page dealing with that model treadmill. So we don't get any help there. The question is, of course, whether these garage humidity warnings are incorporated into the contract which you made. Clearly the warning in the manual is not part of the contract because you would have only received the manual after you bought the treadmill. I suppose that sweatband.com will try to say that the product description which refers to that model trainer was very clear about the garage humidity problem and therefore it formed part of the contract so that you were fully informed before you decided to make the purchase and therefore you are bound by those conditions.   Your counterargument would be that the information which is given on the general treadmill page refer specifically to keeping it in a garage and doesn't warn anybody of any issues at all. In fact the absence of any reference to a humidity problem can be taken to give a green light to the using of a treadmill in a garage. Furthermore, in the specific product information, the reference to the garage humidity problem is only expressed in the Q&A and so it might be reasonable to say that this clearly was not intended to be a formal warning of the specific limitation. Not only that, the reference to the garage humidity problem in the Q&A was really expressed as a recommendation and only warned that there might be a problem – not that there definitely would be a problem. Also, there was no warning that using the treadmill in a garage was at your own risk and could void any guarantee or statutory rights that you might have. It seems to me that the information contained in the Q&A was casual enough not to be treated as binding. It seems to me that the information given in the generic treadmill page was intended to be reassuring that a treadmill could be used in the garage – the only concerns being as to whether or not there was enough headroom. Can you tell me how the treadmill was delivered and how it was installed? Who installed it? I'm referring to the first one and also to the second one.

    • Hi @BankFodder
      Sorry for only updating you now, but after your guidance with submitting the claim it was pretty straight forward and I didn't want to unnecessarily waste your time. Especially with this guide you wrote here, so many thanks for that
      So I issued the claim on day 15 and they requested more time to respond.
      They took until the last day to respond and denied the claim, unsurprisingly saying my contract was with Packlink and not with them.
       
      I opted for mediation, and it played out very similarly to other people's experiences.
       
      In the first call I outlined my case, and I referred to the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 as the reason to why I do in fact have a contract with them. 
       
      In the second call the mediator came back with an offer of the full amount of the phone and postage £146.93, but not the court costs. I said I was not willing to accept this and the mediator came across as a bit irritated that I would not accept this and said I should be flexible. I insisted that the law was on my side and I was willing to take them to court. The mediator went back to Hermes with what I said.
       
      In the third call the mediator said that they would offer the full amount. However, he said that Hermes still thought that I should have taken the case against Packlink instead, and that they would try to recover the court costs themselves from Packlink.
       
      To be fair to them, if Packlink wasn't based in Spain I would've made the claim against them instead. But since they are overseas and the law lets me take action against Hermes directly, it's the best way of trying to recover the money.
       
      So this is a great win. Thank you so much for your help and all of the resources available on this site. It has helped me so much especially as someone who does not know anything about making money claims.
       
      Many thanks, stay safe and have a good Christmas!

Hi All,

Please help me with this----

took out a loan of £25000 from northern rock and they have put on PPI on the loan too, I did tell them at the time that I do not want PPI, they told that if I don’t take the PPI my approved application will need to be put through the system again and the loan may not get approved again, also I may need to pay higher interest rate if it was approved.

 

I refused number of time that I do not want the PPI, however due to my circumstance I was pressurised in to taking the loan with PPI.

I have now stopped paying for the last two months due to my financial difficulties.[/font]

I need help and advice with the following please:

1. Is the loan Agreement Enforceable?

2. Can anything be done about the PPI?

3. Can I get refund on the PPI to reduce the debt?

At the time of the loan I was in full time employment and currently in full time employment

 

Please advice on how I should respond; following my request I have now received the attached CCA from northern Rock.

 

Many thanks Northern Rock CCA word.pdf

I think you must write to them with regard to the PPI and make it known of a clear dispute.....the agreement looks enforceable at first sight....

Sorry 42 Man but if the circumstances of the PPI are as stated then the agreement is unenforceable as well as the PPI reclaimable.

Josie, thanks for that,

 

How would you reccomend me to respond to NR

 

I was just about to send the the letter below (sorry english is not my best)

 

 

 

 

Account number: [12345678] Account DISPUTED

 

 

I purchased the above policy from you in 1st Jan 2005 but now believe that I was mis-sold this policy for the following reasons:

 

This is due to the fact that I contacted you on 28 Dec 2004 and you informed me that I could not cancel the policy; only be able to cancel the policy if I took out a new credit agreement. As the FSA has now stated ‘no refund’ terms are considered unfair I would like my original cancellation request to be honored from 28 Dec 2004

 

· This is due to the fact that I was not given the correct information when the policy was sold to me, as your salesperson stated that taking out the policy would assist my credit application.

  • your salesperson was very pushy in selling me the policy so that I felt I could not say no, even though I said “no” at least in 4 occasions. If you listen to the recorded calls this will be verified.

  • your salesperson did not tell me that the policy was optional and I have since realised that I have alternative cover.

  • your salesperson implied that taking out the policy was essential for me to get the associated credit and that if I decided to not take the PPI a new application for the credit will be required and it may not be approved. Even though you have just approved the loan amount. I was put undue pressure to accept the loan with PPI

  • your salesperson did not allow me to cancel the PPI when I called on receipt of written agreement I was informed that I could not cancel the policy and new application will not be approved without PPI

  • i am concerned the sales assistant that sold me the policy has no financial background and the policy was not sold in my best interests.

Unless you can satisfactorily justify to me that the policy was fair and reasonable I am requesting a full refund of all premiums, and subsequent interest on these payments, that I have paid to date. As I believe I have been deprived of this money I also expect 8% statutory interest, the amount a court would award, to be added to each payment made. I will not be making further payment on the account until this dispute is resolved.

 

I look forward to a full and prompt response to this letter and for the matter to be concluded within eight weeks or I shall be contacting the Financial Ombudsman to investigate my complaint.

Yours faithfully,

Also, what about cancellation rights? Are they not part of the Prescribed Terms? I can't see any of the usual references to them (that i have known) on Mann01's agreement.

Also watch out if NR offer you a large discount of 30% off the total if you settle in full once you fall 2-3 months behind with repayments.

 

Had a tip off in 2007 that it means the agreement is unenforceablein some way. With mine it looks as if they only have a photocopy and not the original that would need to be produced in court. Photocopies can be easily scanned and photoshopped, then reprinted on a laser printer. It would be very difficult to prove this isn't the case without the original agreement.

 

Remember that Banks and DCA's never offer large discounts without a good reason to. :D

Interesting! I've had a 50% discount offer from MBNA in the past! hmmm

 

(as well as the offer of a 50% discount on a 5k account from HFC 3 months after requesting an agreement, and two months after i challenged that agreement) ;)

Hi mann01,

 

I`ve just came across this threa via a link from the Multiple Agreements Thread.

 

Your agreement does seem to have all the correct Terms and also a Signature box for the PPI, which you have signed.

 

The problem will be convincing them or a Judge that you WERE informed you MUST have it or you wouldn`t be accepted.

 

Did you send you letter away to them? Have you had a reply?

 

 

 

N.P

If I have helped or made you laugh in any way in your hour of need, then please click my scales <<<<<<<<<< ;)

This thread is very interesting as I too have a NR loan with PPI.

 

During the first 30 days of the agreement I phoned NR and told them I did not want the PPI but was told that I would have to go through the system again and may not get accepted - pretty much the same story as above.

If you are happy with your original Loan, tell them you will only accept payment via cheque, to be deposited into any account of your choice.

 

It is your money and you will use it as you decide, not them. If it was not for their greed you would still have that money.

 

Also, I`d be VERY warey of changing agreements.

 

Wait until they cancel the original one, then tell them your not interested in another :p

After sending the SAR i received letter from Northern Rock saying that the PPI was not mis-sold and demand for full payment. They passed the account over to number of different collection agency, i ignored most of their calls and told them that it was mis sold and i want my full refund.

 

Its taken a long time to get a response from them.

 

I am not sure how i should respond to their recent offer, i not no idea how i can the the loan written off or settled.

 

I have been approched by number of companies offering to take on my case to get the debt written off - not sure what to do

Hi Happy new year to you all,

 

I have now received a response to the above letter from Northern Rock.

 

They have agreed to refund the whole amount and will not be off-setting against new loan. However they are asking me sign the acceptance form and they will set up a new loan agreement for outstanding balance without the PPI, once the new loan set up they will refund the PPI into my account.

 

I am not sure what to do and how i should respond to this.

I have not paid them over 1 year now, i really don't want another loan agreement as i cannot afford to pay.

 

I will be happy if they just use the PPI refund amount as a full settlement to the account - not sure how i should proceed with this

 

please advice.

I am thinking of sending this - any advice please

Dear

 

 

I am in receipt of your letter dated xxrd December 2009 in which you respond to my assertion that Northern Rock has Mis-Sold Payment Protection Insurance (PPI) to me when I took out the above loans.

 

I am please that you agreed to refund in full including interest of £5xxx.76 and not use this fund for any offsets, which resulted from deliberate mis-selling of the PPI initially. I will not accept to any new loan agreement until my PPI is fully refunded.

PPI is not a compulsory product when taking out a loan, and adding PPI to my loan account in this way is a clear breach of both FSA regulations and guidelines and the Banking Code of Practice provided to the financial services industry. As a respected financial organisation, you will have been quite aware of these regulations and this makes your organisation's action even more serious. It is extremely poor business practice to say the least.

 

 

I would remind you that the FSA takes the Mis-Selling of PPI extremely seriously and you will be aware that recent investigations by both the FSA and the Competition Commission have found that lenders continue to engage in "poor sales practices" and that "customers were not informed orally of both the monthly and total cost of their PPI". (FSA report, 30 September 2008.)

 

I would also draw you attention to the FSA’s latest report on the 29th September 2009 titled FSA unveils tough measures to protect PPI consumers

I request the refund of all moneys paid to you for the above policies including contractual interest within 14 days of receipt of this letter by you. I will not agree to accept any new agreement until I have received my full refund in cleared fund. If you do not comply with my request, I will have no option but to escalate my claim to the FOS and the civil courts. I should remind you that the FOS take the issue of Mis-Selling of PPI extremely seriously and in many cases, have imposed large fines on financial institutions who are in breach of regulations.

 

 

Yours sincerely
