    • @unclebulgaria67 your point is particularly valid especially in regards to loss in the event of a claim. Irrespective of 2x SP30’s or not the vehicle is insured for its full market value. The insurers rating changes based on risk against those endorsements, where said risk calculation isn’t made available.    Also I question the validation of 22% in premium. Is that based on today’s risk profiling, or is that applied retrospectively to day 1 and can that be evidenced.    One thing that is very clear, is that to bring about any degree of misrepresentation the insurer has to have evidence that questions were asked in regards to the endorsements.   This was an auto renewal and when I’ve checked the Brokers electronic Copy on “My Policy’ at renewal, there is no section included relative to accidents in the last 5 yrs or Motoring convictions. Everything else relative to me and the named driver is listed. 
    • Here is what exposes Johnson & Co Commission document, makes for sober reading   Wonder if Snake Oil Singham has read and digested it?   https://ec.europa.eu/info/sites/info/files/brexit_files/info_site/com_2020_324_2_communication_from_commission_to_inst_en_0.pdf
    • Must be a positive if the Insurers are now using the legislation as it was intended. It is just that I have not heard of it being used for Car Insurance, as the 22% comes from the Insurers rating calculations, which is not available information to the Policyholder. With Home Insurance, if you Insured a Building for £100k, when it should have been Insured for £122k, it is easier to grasp.   The Insurers would have issued the policy documents clearly showing that no motoring offences had been included within the premium calculation and the OP has had 5 months to correct the record with Insurers before the accident.   Perhaps probe the Insurers on the 22%. Can they provide evidence from their Underwriting rating guidance that this is the extra premium for 2 SP30's.
    • Moorcroft are just a first DCA that Natwest use, after Natwest have stopped chasing it.   The debt is still owned by Natwest and is currently sat with Moorcroft, but in a pile with many thousands of others.   If your new postal address is showing on your credit file, Moorcroft would have sent letters if they thought this was a priority debt to chase.     
    • We signed up to a credit reference agency.  Got an email this morning saying a search had been carried out in my husband’s name.  It’s by Moorcroft who are doing it on behalf of NatWest. Do we worry?  It’s been over 6 years since last payment and we wrote to NatWest in January advising of our new address.  They and Moorcroft both emailed an old email address which we have access to but never use asking us to confirm our address.  We didn’t respond to it.

    • 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,

Firstly i would like to congratulate everyone here and the forums, the advice and community spirit I can sense is great and lots of knowledge from others in the same boat exists.

 

Onto my old problem, today I recieved a letter from

Link financial(read some about them here they seem nasty).

letter dated 12-6-2009 amount xx+750

Original MBNA amount £xx (so someone has added 750 or so since then)

Ok due to the horrible life stuff I went through and I can sense manmy here have had the same my last payment to MBNA was mar 2003 I recieved no correspondence or notifications from beyond that date only "missed payment" letter dating april 2003

Link have a date assigned of 18-5-2003 then some spurious statement dates relating to oct 08 to jun 09.

I have never recieved any corespondence from them ever before and it states this is statement no:001

 

I have not contacted them yet and awaiting some info from the nationaldebtline in respect to sending them a letter in relation to this being statute barred due to the 6 year timeframe.

 

The real issue it has bought all the old demons from the past which we have hoped to cleared out of our lives. They consist for me of:

Loss of home

Separtion from my family and 2 young children

Nervous breakdown

Back injury(almost paralyzed)

folding up of company

operation for a "lump"

and many other smaller things like letters from your children telling you that they miss you.

 

So back to wether the courts and legal system has cleared up the statute barred debt problem or not and with an almost 6 year old(ie 1 week or so) bank loan in the background would I expect a nasty letter from someone too?

 

Just when you think you have made it out of the woods with your life and resolved many debts(still paying some aswell), got yourself back to looking for work and enjoying your family again, this crops up it's not good and seems unjust when we have MPs and others being able to say "sorry" and getting away with it.

 

I'll try to stop babbling on and hopefuly some of your great minds here can help surpress those old emotions we seem to share here before it get's unbearable again.

 

Many thanks in advance

Sean

p.s. Feel to PM me anytime or wether I should post more details here or not.

Would the debt be enforcable in respect to the above dates under statute barred terms.

Last payment mar 2003

Does there have to be a default notice issued in writing or not?

Does this apply to bank loans aswell?

If no payment has been paid for 6yrs the account is Stat barred.

So in that case do I need to send them any correspondence?

And would this then be the procedure to follow for any other debts over 6 years last payment?

Take a chill pill and calm down:)

 

6 years no payment + no Acknowledgement from you = Statute barred (Regardless of what they've sent you)

Although you still owe the money, they cannot press you for payment if they know it is statute barred.

 

I think the standard approach is to send the Statute Barred Letter (template around somewhere), do not sign as they may try to lift your signature - and then wait. They have to show how it is not statute barred before they can proceed. The little I have picked up about "The missing" Link on this site is that they are bottom feeders that profit from debts like this and bank on you not knowing the score.

 

Be ready to put a complaint in to trading standards (08454 040506) because these monkeys are sure to break the rules.

I really appreciate the help as these things can be nasty catalysts.

 

Section 5 of the limitations act is for ccards right?

Section 6 is for unsecured loans correct?

Are there any real differences between the two in respect to the debts becoming statute barred?

Does there have to be any form of court proceedings to finalise that the debts are "unrecoverable" or is it simply considered so.

 

Is it best to simply do nothing, keeping the letters whilst using them as notepaper?

 

Or

 

Will be there be a point where they cannot claim for the debt any longer and be breaking other harrasment laws in chasing me or my family.

Being paranoid another minor question. again thanks for your help guys/gals been reading some of the successes and it makes me feel alot tougher.

 

I was looking to check to credit report in relation to the above but paranoid about sending data to the CRAs as they state that information can used for third parties..

 

Is there a way where I can physically view my credit report i.e. turn up with relevant ID and proof of address etc.?

 

Or for speed and nothing to worry about I can simply check online?

 

Thanks again

Sean

The "statute barred" status I believe happens just due to the passage of time and does not require any sort of legal intervention to make it happen. The debt is still there and you still owe it - they just just can't make you pay it once it's barred.

 

You should check the situation re CCJs because they don't become time barred (I understand) although if they are not enforced this looks bad for the creditor.

 

You can check your credit report easily online. I have read in this forum of several instances of people having checked their credit files and then shortly after having a DCA turning up on the doorstep. Maybe I'm paranoid - if you know how many worms are in the tin then open it if you catch my drift.

 

As for section 5 and 6 - I don't know.

They can chase a statute barred debt BUT once you state that you will not be making a payment towards a debt that is statute barred then they can NOT continue to harrass you....this is what the OFT say - 2.14 (b) -

continuing to press for payment after a debtor has stated that they will not be paying a debt because it is statute barred could amount to harassment contrary to section 40 (1) of the Administration of Justice Act 1970.

The letter to send recorded is here - http://www.consumerforums.com/resources/templates-library/86-debt-collectors/599-letter-sent-when-debt-is-statute-barred - however if you are in Scotland, there is a different letter to send...(and statute barred in Scotland is 5 years not 6)


PLEASE NOTE - I am not a legal expert, what is stated is my own opinion and from what I have learnt from this forum and my own experiences.

s5 for both sir :)

 

Send the stat barred letter that NDL told you about, recorded delivery.

 

Sorry it has brought back memories of yesteryear. I had a 'lump' taken out recently and going back for MRI scans in a few days.

 

I'm glad you've found our forum.

 

Best wishes,

There are NO timelines.

 

You tell them it's stat barred and thats the end of it.

 

Should they carry on trying to collect once you have informed them you will not be paying it, you report them to everyone possible.

Send recorded delivery, without signing because they could use your signature. After that, if they can't prove it's not statute barred they have to bog off. In my case they tried to say I had to prove it was statute barred and even tried saying my case did not qualify to be statute barred (amongst other things).

 

The moment they pull any stunts, report them to trading standards:
