    • When it comes to animals my heart is just shallow. Sorry to hear that.
    • go back and read what andyorch said in my above links about a DEED of assignment NOT being a Notice Of Assignment. its a general document for a portfolio of MANY debts they bought on a spreadsheet, NOT specifically relating to YOUR Agreement. but your was like all others, a single line in a spreadsheet.    the sheriff has specifically asked for the NOA and the Default Notice ...neither of which the fleecers have provided, merly a load of ole twaddle like trump does to divert attention away from those NOT being provided.   forget the stuff about LOP 1925 etc that a NOE is NOT applicable in scotland , the sheriff has asked for it..end of!!   bedtime reading particularly regarding default notice sec 87 https://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?484300-Cabot-nolans-SPC-Claim-Old-Next-CAT-Debt(2-Viewing)-nbsp&p=5119630#post5119630   read from about post 70.   as for the written submission. i'll find an example later.   dx      
    • Plevin is not a calculation. its a refund of commission they got as they had a backhander of greater than 50% of the PPI sum paid for selling it on behalf of the insurance company that underwrote the PPI policy.   you are after reclaiming the PPI itself. and that is what all our PPI stuff is geared too.   have you still a copy of what you originally sent though as you don't even KNOW what plevin was , how could you have ever have asked for it.!!   pers i'd write back. (you seriously need to stop talking on the phone!!) stating quite clearly that you REJECT totally their refund under the Plevin Rules. my Claim was to reclaim the PPI a paid, not for a refund of your hidden commission!!   i give your 14 days to refund inline with the enclosed spreadsheet , else i will raise a complaint without further notice to the FOS.   please reply in Writing Only.

    • I came across this discussion recently and just wanted to give my experience of A Shade Greener that may help others regarding their boiler finance agreement.
       
      We had a 10yr  finance contract for a boiler fitted July 2015.
       
      After a summer of discontent with ASG I discovered that if you have paid HALF the agreement or more you can legally return the boiler to them at no cost to yourself. I've just returned mine the feeling is liberating.
       
      It all started mid summer during lockdown when they refused to service our boiler because we didn't have a loft ladder or flooring installed despite the fact AS installed the boiler. and had previosuly serviced it without issue for 4yrs. After consulting with an independent installer I was informed that if this was the case then ASG had breached building regulations,  this was duly reported to Gas Safe to investigate and even then ASG refused to accept blame and repeatedly said it was my problem. Anyway Gas Safe found them in breach of building regs and a compromise was reached.
       
      A month later and ASG attended to service our boiler but in the process left the boiler unusuable as it kept losing pressure not to mention they had damaged the filling loop in the process which they said was my responsibilty not theres and would charge me to repair, so generous of them! Soon after reporting the fault I got a letter stating it was time we arranged a powerflush on our heating system which they make you do after 5 years even though there's nothing in the contract that states this. Coincidence?
       
      After a few heated exchanges with ASG (pardon the pun) I decided to pull the plug and cancel our agreement.
       
      The boiler was removed and replaced by a reputable installer,  and the old boiler was returned to ASG thus ending our contract with them. What's mad is I saved in excess of £1000 in the long run and got a new boiler with a brand new 12yr warranty. 
       
      You only have to look at TrustPilot to get an idea of what this company is like.

    • Dazza a few months ago I discovered a good friend of mine who had ten debts with cards and catalogues which he was slavishly paying off at detriment to his own family quality of life, and I mean hardship, not just absence of second holidays or flat screen TV's.
       
      I wrote to all his creditors asking for supporting documents and not one could provide any material that would allow them to enforce the debt.
       
      As a result he stopped paying and they have been unable to do anything, one even admitted it was unenforceable.
       
      If circumstances have got to the point where you are finding it unmanageable you must ask yourself why you feel the need to pay.  I guarantee you that these companies have built bad debt into their business model and no one over there is losing any sleep over your debt to them!  They will see you as a victim and cash cow and they will be reluctant to discuss final offers, only ways to keep you paying with threats of court action or seizing your assets if you have any.
       
      They are not your friends and you owe them no loyalty or moral duty, that must remain only for yourself and your family.
       
      If it was me I would send them all a CCA request.   I would bet that not one will provide the correct response and you can quite legally stop paying them until such time as they do provide a response.   Even when they do you should check back here as they mostly send dodgy photo copies or generic rubbish that has no connection with your supposed debt.
       
      The money you are paying them should, as far as you are able, be put to a savings account for yourself and as a means of paying of one of these fleecers should they ever manage to get to to the point of a successful court judgement.  After six years they will not be able to start court action and that money will then become yours.
       
      They will of course pursue you for the funds and pass your file around various departments of their business and out to third parties.
       
      Your response is that you should treat it as a hobby.  I have numerous files of correspondence each faithfully organised showing the various letters from different DCA;s , solicitors etc with a mix of threats, inducements and offers.   It is like my stamp collection and I show it to anyone who is interested!

Charge on my Property - Thanks HBoS :-(

Hi All,

 

Not sure if I'm supposed to be posting this story and question here, so early apologies...

 

I'm currently at the beginning of county court claim by HBoS against me which has now been allocated on the Fast Track and I have today issued the first document to HBoS, a document disclosure statement along with my counterclaim refund calculations...

 

Some background... I have a Halifax CC debt of an embarrassing £13.5K which I defaulted on in March 2008 with the intention of claiming for a refund of unfair interest and charges etc. I've now calculated this to be a huge £5.5K which shows just how much banks having been making on us... Over 40% on this credit card debt, since I opened it on 28th Jan 2004. I paid the card off 2 years ago but having spent some time out of work I ran up the card again early last year and decided I'd better make sure the debt was correct so claimed.

 

I've counterclaimed after the bank sued me for this recently, but as I was on low income at the time and I'm now unemployed again, so I've asked the court to waive the counterclaim fee in full, as yet it appears the counterclaim has not been struck out so fingers crossed and they will grant the waiver.

 

I've spoken to Irwin Mitchell Solicitors representing HBoS and they've told me they intend to continue with the litigation to obtain a charge on my property as I'm only paying a minimum amount since Nov 2008 (for the remaining debt) and they don't like the length of time it will take to repay the loan. So the case goes on... I mentioned that the tax payer had bailed out HBoS to the tune of several hundred billion pounds in loan guarantees but this does not reduce their appetite to get a charge on my property, I guess they want their shares back from the Treasury :p.

 

My property is a family home, I have 3 kids half the time living with me and it's now worth 20% less than my mortgage, I bought at the peak, silly me :mad:. I'm not in arrears at all with my Northern Rock mortgage so things are not all bad, though all my unsecured debt is now in default unfortunately.

 

I want to pay HBoS back eventually (and all the others) but only the £8K I think they are entitled to (not £13.5K), and if I need to sell my property in 5 to 10 years time, I may need that money more urgently for my family rather than for HBoS shareholders, so I think a charge on my property would be inconvenient for me and unfair to my family situation, so I'd like to fight that in particular if possible.

 

Chinks in the HBoS armour are that they only had a signed Credit Card Application form from me dated 28th January 2004 and appear not to have a full signed contract with rates, terms and charges etc, so not sure of the agreement is enforceable.

 

Can anyone suggest anything I've missed and a route to make HBoS drop the case, and therefore the fly in the ointment charge on my property, accept a token payment whilst I'm unemployed and I'll up the monthly repayments as I come into more money over the next months and few years? Eventually within 10 years probably I'll pay the £8K off but you never know of course, or maybe it would be fairer to offer a settlement figure in a year or two, again if I have the cash.

 

Please comment and help as required and thanks to all readers and responders :-)

Thank you cerberusalert :-)

 

That link about Charging Orders is very useful, on reading it I think because I have other large creditors, the house is in negative equity and I have kids living here, it appears that lovely HBoS will have a few hurdles to jump before I'm forced to hand over my front door keys :-) and force my ex-wife to look after my kids 24/7 :-)

 

One thing occurs to me now though... HBoS need a CCJ first, so is the agreement enforceable... Are there any basic points a creditor must have in a CCA regulated agreement to make it enforceable? Please note all BoS have was a signed Credit Card Application dated 28th January 2004 with the Halifax.

 

Please note I'm a big follower of Karma so I intend to pay HBoS back their justified £8K as and when I can afford it even if the agreement is unenforceable, but this threat of a house charging order by HBoS will not be giving me "a little extra help" keeping my family together.

 

So if anyone has time, a link or advice about enforceability would be most appreciated.

 

Thank you again cerberusalert that link was very helpful indeed :-) I will call their solicitor tomorrow and tell them the pitfalls they face with their charging order route and see what they say to my debt affordability plan.

You should send them a SAR with a view to reclaiming any unfair charges which they have added helping to reduce the amount they are claiming from you. http://www.consumerforums.com/resources/templates-library/86-debt-collectors/576-subject-access-request-debt-a-dca

Suggest you only deal with them via paperwork.
