    • Thanks for this update. Obviously I'm very pleased that your guitar has been delivered and that you don't have to take any further action about this. On the other hand, I'm slightly disappointed because I was hoping that this might be an opportunity to deliver a serious slap against Hermes. Anyway, who knows why it happened like this – but the most important thing is that the item has been delivered and you're not out of pocket – and also probably you have learned a good lesson – don't use Hermes – or Packlink. It's a recipe for trouble.

    • I have debts of my own and will sort another advice separate for them as now I’m not working and a full time carer for wife & daughter I’m struggling to pay them so will want advice on letters to send them for reduced payments etc But for now I need to know what to do about PayPal as its really making me worry and is making me ill but ive got to try be strong and put on brave face for wife & daughter I dont want them picking up on something is wrong & worrying me
    • Help & Advice wanted on PayPal debt please I had someone staying with me for a while before they moved away and they had access to my PayPal account and was buying a few things and giving me the money no problem but then unknown to me until it was to late they had a gambling problem also and last off used my PayPal to fund online gambling . They ended up using £5,000 through PayPal and the first I knew was when I went to do some online banking and seen £1200 went out of my bank for PayPal so I looked straightaway and stopped / cancelled my bank letting PayPal take from my account . Then I logged on to PayPal and seen transactions 1 after another this going to total the £5,000 so I unlinked my bank & cards from PayPal account . Then nearly 2 weeks after I started getting emails and messages saying my account was in negative balance for £3,800 because they already had the £1200 . I’m in a bit of debt anyway and struggling so for this to happen left me feeling very ill to find they have spent thousands and left me without anything no money to live on or feed family even at the time as that £1200 that was took out of my account was all I had, I’m very annoyed and feeling very mad and very ill. Ive no idea how I can put this right as got no work no money because My wife got struck down with illness and disabled and I also have special needs daughter so I’m now a full time carer for both wife and daughter . I need to sort this but dont know how or best way to go about it. Ive had emails from PayPal and ive replied and explained plus went on live chat etc and asked for it to be logged and for them to please come to some payment agreement even though I cant afford it I know I got to put things right somehow but had no joy in chat and was just told pay into PayPal what I owe. So again I get emails and I reply but not getting any reply back to my emails . Ive not told my ill disabled wife about this right now as it would push her over the top and make her more ill thinking about it and its her Nephew to top things off so I know it would destroy her . Ive tried talking to someone with PayPal in live chat etc and emails as said asked if it can be logged showing ive been in touch regarding this matter and need to try sort it and also asked for them to contact me in writing so hopefully we can come to some sort of agreement to put this right but so far its been about 31 days now since account been in negative and ive had no phone calls or letters from them yet So what can I do and whats best way to deal with this I’m trying to pursue the person for these funds as we speak but know I’m not going to get anywhere

    • 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

I'm in court again against Blemain this Thursday, for the 3 times adjourned repossession hearing. Shelter have been advising going for a time order, which is not easy, and I admit the adjournments have meant I've been able to improve my financial situation a little and am more able to meet the required payments. However,the Shelter guy dealing with my case, is a nice enough bloke, but he keeps crying off. The first adjournment was because he not being there the judge decided I needed help. The second was because Blemain had not received information provided by the court, the Shelter guy was there, for that one, now he's cried off again. Blemain being Blemain will I'm sure be very prepared and I have to face them on my own again. Unfortunately I can't get the Shelter guy to respond to phone calls or emails, and whilst I'm sure he's very, very busy, I do wonder. Is there any other assistance I can use on the day, short notice I know.

Hi Ascint.

 

There MAY be a duty solicitor there to assist, but that's not a definite by a long way. Do want to pop up some more details on here, without identifying yourself, and I'm sure between us we can work it out.

 

I assume its a Regulated Agreement if you're going for a Time Order?

nothing much to say I have a loan with Blemain which I have been unable to pay for 7 months due initially to illness then the collapse of my business. While other creditors have helped Blemain just keep charging even to pay them money back. Went to Shelter to sort out my problems, they suggested a time order to pay back £100 per month, instead of the £290 required. First court appearance the judge gave me 21 days as the Shelter guy could not attend, to ensure I got some attempt at justice. Second appearance, when the Shelter guy was there, Blemain went for possession outlining my cashflow as being £20 to £30 short of enough to pay the Time order. Plus as I'd not met the last judges order to supply information on why I had been ill, they suggested I'd not meet any other order he made, so they required immediate possession. Fortunately the Judge looked through his files, saw I had met the last order and although the Blemain solicitor asked for time to review it, was told to come back when the court was less busy. Hence another adjournement. I now have an improved financial statement, my wife was given a small rise and my mortgage payment dropped, andf we go back to court this thursday without the Shelter rep who has cried off again this time without a reason. He also seems to be out every time I ring and has not replied to my emails. I must have dome something wrong Oh and this month I have paid Blemain the £100 as per the hoped for order.

My wife ahs another property which we rent out which is under a similar threat, due to the tennant not paying and it taking us 7 months to evict them, but that is now under control. Both propertiesd ahve been up for sale at a very low price and both have plenty of equity in them.

I have started my own business but as yet have no regular income.

I did try the duty solicitor last time he Shelter guy could not make it and found he was the guy who acted as the duty solicitor at the court ?

If the time order isn't given is there any redress to come up with another alternative, apart from clearing the arrears which I can't do ?

Thanks for the thought.

 

It didn't go well and it didn't go too badly, but I'm confused somewhat and even more upset no one from Shelter was there to advise. The judge who was the one who had initially adjourned the first time to allow me to get aid and to provide a statement about my affairs, couldn't find the statement and when provided with it, apologised to me for saying I had not filed it, then ignoring the Time order request asked for a summary of the outstanding arrears and what the Blemain solicitor wanted. She said that they wanted possession as I'd put the house up for sale so a Time order was not relevant.

The judge then asked several questions about the equity in the property, suggested to me that as I'd already been given 2 adjournments, the best he could offer was a 56 days possession order. He asked me if a buyer came on Saturday and said he'd pay the asking price what would I do. Gave the obvious answer so he said well I''l give the possession order for 56 days, and wait for it, 'but I expect you back before the 56 days are up with a negotiated offer to Blemain, which if they do not accept I will review and adjudicate' 'The way things work that should give you at least 3-4 months to sort out your business, find work or sell one of your houses' The Blemain solicitor who had said little else stood up and walked out, leaving me with my mouth open. I suggest you talk to Shelter quickly to discuss a plan of action, he said smilingly.

 

That was it.

 

So don't put your house on the market or pay your monthly payment if you go for a Time order. Judges don't like them, well in North Wales they don't, that's why I reckon I've been given what amounts to 5 months grace

Ummm. Sounds like you had a good judge. Female solicitor eh? How a woman could bear to work trying to repossess people's homes is beyond me.... Hopefully Shelter will now help out.

he'd have been a better one if he'd argued my Time order application I think, better still to have given it to me.

Seems Shelter can no longer help, as they have refused to continue to help me as my property is up for sale and they fear being censored by the court for bringing a Time order when my house was as shown by Blemain, up for sale. I'm totally confused and asked for clarification from the Shelter guy what their funding restrictions are pertaining to my case. Now I have a few weeks to sort out something before we 3 are put on the streets with no where to go. Amazing, I knew the Shelter guy was not 100% behind my case, I'd love to know why, but have to concentrate on keeping hold of my property.

 

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi there, are you now in a position to pay the normal monthly installments? If so, and you want to stay in the property you could enter a N244 at court asking for a hearing to suspend eviction based on your ability to pay the mortgage (and a little towards the arrears).

 

Instead of asking for a time order you could have used this case law:

 

Royal Bank of Scotland –v- Elmes April 1998 Legal Action 11, Clerkenwell County Court

Issue – suspended possession order on payments less than current instalments

A district judge suspended a warrant for possession for three months on terms that the defendant pay £250 one month and thereafter £500 per month for two months, thereafter the case would further considered. The defendant had good prospect of obtaining employment within the period. The lender appealed on the basis the court had no power to suspend on terms of payment less than current instalments.

Assistant Recorder Thomas Q.C dismissed the appeal, and held that s.36 of the Administration of Justice Act 1970 enables the court to impose any terms about payment so long as the borrower would, within a reasonable period, be able to clear the arrears and pay the current instalments.

Thanks Ell-enn.

 

The Time order was I thought to allow me time to get my self employment back up and running, which has not happened yet. Its a second mortgage and the payments are £270 per month on the 2 accounts with joint arrears of £2500 now. I can manage £100 per month but proving after 4 visits to court already to show I can now afford £270 plus might prove hard as might finding the money, Blemain will remember

 

Still if there is no alternative, I will somehow have to, one of our houses should sell eventually. My wife works and we get Family credit and we have sold everything of value, cars, TV's etc.

 

What sort of extra will the judge accept do you think

Hi, I'm a bit confused (blame it on the hot weather lol), is this eviction order for the property you live in? You say the payments are £270 on the two accounts? is that £270 total or £270 each?

Its for a loan from Blemain finance with a charge on the house we live in, equity 200 k Payments are £176.61 and £91.50, total £268.11 for both, I have paid £50 on each for the last 2 months and £30 on each for the previous 4 months.

Our present financial statement shows us with £137 in a good month before paying Blemain but we cover our mortgage and all essential payments if nothing to my other creditors.

 

 

Thanks

I have kust done a new statement which shows with my daughters help I can pay back £250 but I don't suppose that will convince a judge let alone Blemain.

 

All I need is the time to sell one or both of our properties or until I start earning again

yes tried them ages ago

They are one of those standard form guys. They give you the leaflets, send you the bits but as to advice

 

CCC are similar but they do offer advice and sensible advice for debt counselling but are weaker when it comes to help with legal matters

Hi, if the house doesn't sell in the next month, put in an N244 application using the case law quoted in my earlier post. If you can pay anything at all in the meantime it will strengthen your case.

Thanks again Ell-enn you really are marvellous.

 

I have been paying £50 on each account for the last few months

 

Would I stand a better chance if I could find the full monthly payment and say £20 for the arrears, rather than the case lore mentioned previously Ell-enn

 

Having been in front of the court 3 times already I don't wish top push my luck too far.

 

We are looking at other methods of selling either property, auction, etc.but I don't expect to sell within a month.

 

so what would be the best time scale is there a limitation on the number of N244 forms you can enter

If you were able to make the monthly payments and a little towards the arrears, it would certainly strengthen your case if you have to go back to court.

 

I don't think there's a limit to the amount of N244's you can submit, but of course you need to be able to tell/offer the judge something positive for him to suspend eviction, otherwise you will simply run out of time.

I appreciate what you say and I also appreciate I have to show as Blemain argued about there being a 2 pound excess on my previous statement that what I put is provable and will stand scrutiny.

 

All I'm concerned to do is to make an offer that a will be accepted and b will give me time to sell a property, and c be viable so I can keep to it.

Well no one has visited my house let alone shown interest and its at a give away price, so I presume I need to fill in the N244 form.

 

I have been paying £100 towards the payment of £271 for the last 4 months, have shown a willingness to sell both our properties but I assume an offer to pay the monthly payment on the loan plus something off the arrears is the best option.

 

Repossession date is the 20 th of August I have spoken to Blemain who keep sending me letters warning they are to take me to court, just to charge me the £35 fee I presume, but the least they will accept they say is full payment of the arrrears. My mortgage company, who I'm up to date with have advised they cannot see Blemain taking possession over them?? They have also offered no other form of assistance.

 

Best option?

I just can't see why it's in Blemain's interests to repossess a house which is up for sale. Its not like it will get sold any faster vacant with an eviction notice on it.
