    • Bank the cheque.  No doubt it will bounce - but you never know. When it bounces - that is when you are meant to access their website link and enter your personal details - but of course - DON'T.

    • If you are absolutely certain* that you were parked OK, write a letter of complaint to the Headteacher and copy in the Chair of the school governors.   If you or the car were identifiable in any way from the photo (eg visible registration number, driver's face etc) I would very politely write that you resent the untrue suggestion that you had parked/had stopped/were waiting in a way that contravened any traffic regulations, and that you are sure that the school will understand that you would like an apology and a correction to be printed in the next newsletter.  (You can also clearly state that you were identifiable from the photo because other parents have mentioned it to you).   See if that works.   You don't want to go to court for defamation as you'll need access to about £10k in fees before you get out of bed.  You just want an apology and a correction.  If what you've told us is accurate, I don't see any reasonable school failing to say sorry.     *My wife is a former school governor and my experience listening to her is that very very few parents actually understand the meaning of the no stopping/no waiting signs and road markings outside schools.  Don't complain unless you are sure you weren't stopped where you shouldn't have been.
    • And they haven't offered a speed awareness course either?  (Have you done one in the last three years or is this in Scotland?)   And is one of the notices for 34 in a 30?  As Man in the Middle says, that ought to be below the level at which they take action.   (And sorry - I don't want to appear preachy - but...  there don't have to be any warnings or signs or lines on the road to advise you of the presence of speed cameras.  If you get away with an exceptional hardship argument you will need to stick to speed limits in future - whether you know there are cameras there or not.  NB Don't know if this applies to you, but most 30 mph limits are restricted roads with a system of streetlighting and don't even need speed limit signs - you are assumed to know this from the Highway Code).
    • It's up to you if you want to pay £300 you don't owe plus whatever Unicorn Food Tax with no basis in law whatsoever that they will have made up in the Letter Before Claim.   We'd prefer you didn't.   But you have received a LBC so it's make your mind up time.   So please    - post up photos of the signage in the dark that you'll have taken two months ago (post 14)    - post up details of planning permission for their signs you'll have found out after you got onto the council, again two months ago (again post 14)    - also let us know if you agree with Brassnecked's excellent letter or if you'd like to tweak bits depending on what you've found out    - upload the LBC.  Some of them are appallingly drafted and invariably contain Unicorn Food Tax which is all useful extra ammo    - also, where are you living now (post 35) and are you comfortable with legal communications arriving at your parents'?   If you look in our PPC Successes thread at the top of the page, you will see 275 times these cheats have been seen off with their tails between their legs (and all had the same "well known legal companies" (ho! ho!) on hand).  In reality 275 times is a massive underestimate, in all 275 cases there was a "moment of victory" IYSWIM where the PPC were thrashed in court or discontinued a claim or were called off by a supermarket chain, etc., etc.  There will have been at least that number again where they were told to Foxtrot Oscar and then crawled back under their stone.  They are eminently beatable but logically when you're in legal dispute you have to put some graft in to beat the other party.

Have received an enforcement notice under s76(1) CCA 74 from Lloyds this morning regarding my overdraft. It’s a pretty hefty one anyway but interest charges have sent it over by several hundred pounds. Not sure what to do now, should I SAR Lloyds or should I try to claim back charges on hardship basis? There’s absolutely no way I can pay more than the £1 token payments that I’ve been paying for the last year.

 

Not sure if I’m in the right place with this but perhaps it could be moved to the right place?

 

 

 

If I go down the reclaiming charges route, what charges am I able to recoup? Can I get the interest charges back? They've been charging nearly £50 interest even though I've asked them time and again to halt the interest. They know I can't pay more than £1.

 

 

Any help would be appreciated. Many thanks folks.

Yes that is the right letter as long as you know exactly how much they have taken from you in charges.

 

If you're not sure, you could send a SAR first

thanks fox. I don't know the exact amount, SAR'd them way back but haven't received anything on the current account to date. They've now passed to a DCA for collection/court threats etc, usual stuff.

 

As if I don't know the exact amount then this letter is no good?

The letter is fine but as you don't know exactly how much they have stiffed you in charges, you won't be able to reclaim all they have charged, only what you know.

 

Send them another letter re: the SAR and tell them they haven't complied with your SAR and tell them what you believe is missing.

 

Once you get your statements, you will then be in a better position to work out what they have charged and don't forget to add interest (I think at the same rate they were charging you)

ok, thanks for that. I've sent the SAR reminder off giving them seven days to respond.

 

Not sure what to do about sending the letter now, would it be best to send it off omitting the part about how much I'm reclaiming or should I wait til I get the statements back and fill out the full amount? If I wait, is there a holding letter I can send the solicitors to keep them off my back in the meantime (especially as the account isn't in dispute)?

quick question if anyone can help please.

 

think i may be clutching at straws but here goes - if SAR has been ignored by original creditor can this put the account into dispute in any way?

 

dca/solicitors are threatening legal action on behalf of bank and i was hoping to send them a mishmash of the CCA template letter to sols telling them to get stuffed

 

cheers in advance

If a SAR has been ignored then its a breach of Data protection Act and should be reported to the ICO.

 

Account in dispute does not rely soley on non compliance of a SAR-if you are disputing the account balance then the DCA is obliged to hold off collection and either provide you with the info that you need or else refer back to the original creditor.

Can you give some more info

1.Who is the Original creditor

 

2.What does the debt/alleged debt refer to ?

 

3.Who is the DCA ?

Thanks Martin. Lloyds is the OC. Apex is the DCA. Apex’s sols Geoffrey Parker Bourne have sent me a letter threatening court action within 7 days. The SAR was incomplete (huge amount missing). Thing is I’ve already written to Lloyds reminding them of outstanding SAR and giving them a further 7 days to comply or I will report them to IFO (I have all the paperwork ready to go this time).

 

The debt is an overdraft that I want to claim charges on but I need SAR to calculate figures. I haven’t written to Lloyds about reclaiming/disputing overdraft figures yet as I am suspicious they may alter the charges in SAR response (paranoid I know).

 

I was hoping that Lloyds’ non-compliance with SAR could put the account into dispute so the DCA can’t hassle me anymore. Its sounds like that is right but as I haven’t actually written to Lloyds disputing figures yet I suppose DCA can still hassle me/take legal action?

 

 

Not quite sure what to do now. Would it be best to alert Lloyds that I wish to reclaim charges but not give an amount?

 

Is there anything I can quote to the DCA to halt legal proceedings?

 

Sorry it’s a bit disjointed, I was in bed very late last night (too busy worrying about this).

 

Thanks once again.

Ok its a little clearer now.

Yes know what you mean-I was up late too.

Although you may not have specifically alerted dispute resolution with Lloyds-you can argue that the SAR is within itself being made because you are needing it to show the figures which you are disputing/wishing to claim.

 

Its very important that you have kept copies of anything and can show proof of posting and delivery.

 

Lloyds will no doubt be aware of the reasons for your SAR request,but it will do no harm to send a letter to their R/O FAO their legal department reminding them that since their failure to comply with your SAR request now in breach of the DPA,is frustrating your proposals to initiate your own actions,then any Court action they initiate will see you seeking disclosure by way of draft directions.

 

I will put something together for you to send to both Apex and GPB.

Meantime you can get a letter off to Lloyds ASAP.

Will try to get back to you later today.

That is a great relief, thank you so much. I will get a letter off to Lloyds today and await your responses for Apex and GPB.

 

Luckily I keep copies of absolutely everything, I throw nothing away. Lloyds acknowledged the SAR asking for my sig by return, and then wrote thanking me for it! I also have an acknowledgement of the letter I sent warning them of the further 7 days so they have no excuse.

 

Thanks very much once again.
