    • Well done! This is more than likely the end of it, but you should check with the court at some stage that they've officially discontinued.   They can still chase you for the debt, and they might, but you can just ignore. If they were to issue proceedings again, you can refer to this case in your submissions - it won't reflect very well on them if their case is similar to this time. The chances of them trying again are probably slim though.

    • Update!!!    Email received from solicitors (well I was cc'd in on an email to the Court)   Notice of Discontinuance,   Does this mean it's a "Success" and no more to be heard?   Or potentially they could find the correct paperwork and start a new claim?   But, for the moment, I am happy.   Thanks for the help and guidance on this thread.
    • Hi All, newbie here, hope I'm doing this correctly.   Two years ago the wife was using my car and bought a ticket in a train station car park and displayed it on the dashboard. She returned to find a parking charge notice from Excel. It was a very windy day and it had evidently been blown on the the floor of the car as she left. It did not have a self adhesive part to stick to the window. I subsequently followed their online claim procedure and sent a copy of the ticket but the claim was refused. A couple of days ago I received the County Court Business Centre claim form in the post after presuming it would go away after not hearing from them for about a year (the usual threatening letters from debt recovery companies etc).   I wish I had paid the original £20 as this has been a big worry and hassle, but I just ignored most of the letters after reading stuff online. Obviously I want to dispute the whole of the claim but do I have a decent defence? I would cite the fact that the only reason the ticket was not displayed was that it could not be stuck to the window.   Any help and advice would be greatly appreciated.   Name of the Claimant : Excel Parking Services   Claimants Solicitors: Unknown   Date of issue – 08 July 2020   Date for AOS - 27 July 2020?   Date to submit Defence - 10 August?       What is the claim for – Breach of contract - parked without clearly displaying a valid parking ticket in Brewery St car park, Chesterfield on 02.07. 2018. Defendant has failed to settle the outstanding liability and Claimant seeks recovery of of the parking charge notice, costs and interest       What is the value of the claim? £185.00
    • I have had a letter from RBOS saying they have assigned my debt of £3600 to Cabot however it must be at least 6 years since i did anything with this debt, the letter was sent to my old address.   i have had a look around on the site but cant see a FAQ to do with these issues ( probably me not looking the right area)  .   can anyone advise me on what the next steps are as i assume this debt may be statute barred ? but im loath to ring Cabot and go through any details with them and would rather do it via letter.   as back ground i have other debts with other banks and currently have CCJ obtained via backdoor so im obligated to pay that debt. also did a stepchange thing that showed i have no other available funds to pay these other debts off.   any help appreciated

    • Hi,  
      I was in Sainsbury’s today and did scan and shop.
      I arrived in after a busy day at work and immediately got distracted by the clothes.
       
      I put a few things in my trolley and then did a shop.
      I paid and was about to get into my car when the security guard stopped me and asked me to come back in.
       
      I did and they took me upstairs.
      I was mortified and said I forgot to scan the clothes and a conditioner, 5 items.
      I know its unacceptable but I was distracted and Initially hadn’t really planned to use scan and shop.
       
      No excuse.
      I offered to pay for the goods but the manager said it was too late.
      He looked at the CCTV and because I didn’t try to scan the items he was phoning the police.
       
      The cost of the items was about £40.
      I was crying at this point and told them I was a nurse, just coming from work and I could get struck off.
       
      They rang the police anyway and they came and issued me with a community resolution notice, which goes off my record in a year.
      I feel terrible. I have to declare this to my employer and NMC.
       
      They kept me in a room on my own with 4 staff and have banned me from all stores.
      The police said if I didn’t do the community order I would go to court and they would refer me to the PPS.
       
      I’m so stressed,
      can u appeal this or should I just accept it?
       
      Thanks for reading

Hi all,

 

Ok long story.

 

My wife and i have a loan with Welcome finance. We took it out back in November 2006 as an extension to an already arranged double glazing loan in order to wipe out a few smaller debts such as cards etc.

 

Anyway, back in September last year we received a call from one of welcomes little helpers explaining that we had missed a payment some months back (due to Woolwich & Barclay's merge).. we didn't argue and paid. I happened to mention that we only had 2yrs remaining and we were lucky not to have received any form of blemish on our credit file.

 

Welcome then advised us that we had in fact a further 7 years of loan to complete... after much arguing, it also emerged that the loan was secured on our shared ownership property (50/50). I couldn't find the loan agreement at first so left them to it.

 

Once found, we realised it was true (as far as the paperwork reads). I immediately wrote a letter of complaint insisting that they mis-sold us the loan and explained that i wanted them to revise the agreement and adjust the payments and that we would be making no further payments until the agreement issues were resolved. I also advised them that i would no longer discuss the account over the phone or accept charges for calls apparently made whilst we were all out at work etc etc

 

The Loan:

We thought - £12,000 loan (unsecured as we didn't think we could use a shared ownership house as security) payments were £280 (ish) per month over 5 years = £17,000. :)

We Had - £ 12,000 Secured £280 x 120 (10yrs) = £34,000:eek:

 

Their initial reply to my complaint was that we've signed the agreements bla bla bla. Shortly after their letter i received a call, very helpful, listened to my complaint and claimed they would revise the agreement and come back to me.... never happened... and this continued for 6 months despite me sending letters asking for replies in writing only!!.

 

Long and short.... they have failed to reply to all bar 1 of my letters and now i have received a 14 day notice that they intend to apply for an attachment of earnings (I've been made redundant in the past 4 weeks) or claim on the security i.e. the house. once received i contacted CCCS who advised me to wait and go to court???

 

I have recently sent them a CCA request (recorded) that defaults in 5 days time. I thought that this would solve my problems... but it turns out that even if they produce the CCA on day 21.... i still have a debt??? so it seems that the CCA is just a delay tactic??

 

I have a copy of the agreement and it turns out i do owe them the money over 10yrs secured.

 

WHAT CAN I DO??? Declare Bankrupt?? There's no money in our 50% share of the house....

2) Did you have PPI cover &

 

3) When did you stop making payments.

I believe you cannot secure against shared ownership properties (apart from your mortgage) without the other parties agreement i.e. if 50% is owned by yourselves and 50% the local authority they cannot secure without the LA's consent.

 

Have you checked the land registry?

also gavin CCA is 12+2 days not 21 so as per your other thread they need to provide it today as you sent on 18th.

 

They cannot enforce the agreement until they provide it to you, if they provide you with a copy they can then pursue it again but not until they do so.

They cannot do an attachment of earnings without having first been to court - they are misleading you with their alleged powers there - once it has gone to court you can claim against them and they will be the sorry ones.

 

I too believe that without the consent of your housing association their claim to the property is very much reduced and the judge will be asking them why they didn't check that in the first place - we can help with the wording for that part.

Are you sure??? i've just googled "shared ownership secured loans" and there seems to be a few companies offering secured loans:confused:

not without both permissions and as your 50% would more than likely have no equity as your mortgage will have taken your full 50% they can't levy against the 50% the LA or other owner has.

Hi all...

 

Ok all docs now scanned, details removed and ready for you masters of law and order to show me the light at the end of the tunnel.....8-)

 

GET TO WORK :D

 

Couple of things I've found and/or noticed....

 

1st.. I found a Legal Charge document that i now know to be the "security" document... couple of things with this is that a, there are no details in the top 2 boxes i.e. date of charge and customer No.... b, where it asks for Property Charged it has basic info... i.e 5 George street (not my address) but no town or postcode to clarify the address or house.

 

2nd... Land Registry has no charges against our house. I called the land registry office to verify this.

Oh... in addition, i have asked our housing association about secured loans on the property.

 

They claim that they are not required to give permission on loan applications etc.:confused:

Hi Gavin, let me just say I know that branch of welcome very well...very flexible with the truth in there and lets not go into my opinion of the manager....

 

In other threads I have read the DN and your one like many others does not state when the 14 days is from and this has caused much amusement to many of the more knowledgeable caggers...hopefully one of them can come along and check out the DN and set your mind at ease. (incidently I could open the PDF but not the acrobat)

Do not alert Welscum to anything regarding the charge!! Assuming you are under english land reg and not scottish? they both work to different sets of rules!

I am sure i have read elsewhere that they can apply the charge (assuming it is legal in the first place) whenever they want..i may stand corrected on this!
