Hi Minnimes,

 

Microfiche is where data was "photographed" and stored in teeny tiny format like photos but with many pages on one slide. They still use them to access old archive stuff like newspapers, Registry Office entries, etc.

 

BC are still way off producing an enforceable credit agreement. :)

We could do with some help from you

The FOS are an industry funded body and hence wont dare give an opinion on enforceability and by rights they shouldnt.. only a court can rule on it.

 

You now have a copy of the agreement and can see its unenforceable, its up to you how you want to play the next move? low f&f offer, no further payments etc etc. Barclays like other banks will never agree with you no matter what you send them.

ive not been paying them anyway, not since it became in dispute. i dont have the means to do a f&f offer at the mo, so i guess my only option is to wait it out and see if they take me to court. i think i should send the letter slick did on my other thread ? strange though how ive been asking for an agreement for about 12 mnths, fos write to them once and get it.

Hi Minnimes,

 

This is why we've been telling CAGgers to try the FOS if they want to see the actual credit agreement - because it seems that the FOS ARE telling the banks to produce whatever documents they have.

 

But you must understand, the FOS are NOT saying the agreement is enforceable or not. They are simply saying the bank has fulfilled its' obligations set out in CCA1974.

 

As the Shadow says, it's only a court that can decide if an agreement is enforceable, although we can see that the document fails to meet the requirements.

 

You can send the letter I posted on your Solution Finance thread if you want. Or you can ignore them and see what happens. :)

Hi Minnimes,

 

To save me going back through the thread, can you please remind me, did you get anything back in response to your CCA request, like their T&C's.

 

I'm sure you're aware about changes in the last couple of years which mean they don't have to send the actual signed credit agreement but they can pursue the debt if they've sent you T&C's.

 

However, to take effective court action to recover any alleged debt, they should require the signed credit agreement.

yes they did me a set of t&C, i dont even think i still have it, so even though i contacted them before the law changed they can still chase me under the new law? i wasnt aware it had changed, the paper work they sent me when i asked for my agreement are on this page, where do i go from here? i dont know where i stand now if the law has change, ty

The law hasn't exactly changed - more like cases have been decided that have set precedents about how similar cases should be treated.

 

I would continue to maintain that your a/c is in dispute as they've failed to send you proof of the credit agreement.

 

Then you'll see if they are prepared to take the case further without proof of the debt.

I'd write just to the DCA as that will take more time for them to get back to you.

 

See how they respond.

Hi Minnimes - long time , no see!

 

What DCA has the a/c now.

 

The document is too small to see, so if you want us to see it properly, follow this guide - http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?214191-HSBC-solicitors-northampton-claim-help-pls&p=3808613&viewfull=1#post3808613

 

This is clearly an application form and is not likely to qualify as a properly executed credit agreement.

 

If someone thought they had enough evidence to take court action successfully, I suspect they'd have done it by now. Waiting over a year to pursue has not helped their case at all.

 

:wink:

I'd drop Lowells a brief letter saying this is the same card application that you've been sent before. It wasn't a properly executed credit agreement then, and it still is not one now.

 

Accordingly, the a/c should not have been sold to Lowells, it remains in clear dispute and any demands for payment will be the subject of a formal complaint to the FOS.

Dear sir or madam,

 

I refer to your letter of xxdate and, despite your assertions, the document supplied is merely an application form.

 

It does not constitute an enforceable credit agreement for many reasons and, because of this, the a/c should not have been sold to you as it was, and remains, in dispute.

 

If you make any demands in respect of this matter, a formal complaint will be made to the FOS without further warning.

 

Any court action which you may take will be vigorously defended using the relevant legislation set out in the Consumer Credit Act 1974.

 

Yours faithfully,

 

:-D
