    • OK, I found the letter I was looking for:     Dear Sir/Madam,   Reference: [order number]   On [date], I placed an order for a [item] and it was delivered by you on [date].   I have discovered that the [item] has the following problem: [give details].   The Consumer Rights Act 2015 makes it an implied term of the contract that goods be as described, of satisfactory quality and fit for purpose.    Any returns policy that says I have to cover the cost of returning items must only relate to the situation where I change my mind about the item ordered and not where there is a problem with the item.    I should not lose out financially as a result of your breach of contract and accordingly all costs of returning the item should be met by you.    I also require you to confirm you will arrange for [the item] to be collected.   I look forward to hearing from you.   Yours faithfully, [Your name]
    • Pleased to hear that.   A general comment, for future readers of this thread, from my experiences of being an Executor.   Most large companies have a centralised 'Bereavement' department and I've found it's best to notify the death to them rather than the general customer service call centres. Search the company's website for 'bereavement'.   The bereavement departments are in my experience staffed by people who understand the processes when someone dies both for the relatives/executors and within their own companies and they get things sorted efficiently. (I've never had to use Vodafone's though).
    • Hi All, A simple question really. I received a NTK ticket on a lease vehicle last year from Parking Eye. As expected, they were adamant i was at fault and no payment was made. I highlighted to them that their signage no longer had planning permission and this was ignored however since ignoring this, they have gone quiet and have been for roughly 6 months now. I know they can claim for up to 6 years(??) after. As it was a lease vehicle, the RK was the lease company. PE were provided my personal address and had been communicating with me via letter there. I have now moved house and what i would like to avoid is them issuing court papers, something which i know PE like to do, me not being aware and eventually ending up with a default CCJ against my name. I appreciate i could write to them and update my address with them however i worry this may "Wake them up" a bit regarding my case. What is the best approach here?
    • Forget the warranty that means nothing and a warranty does not replace or over rule your rights under CRA amongst other consumer legislation. which state that outside of 30days but within 6mts its the sellers that is responsibility to confirm the item faulty, which has been done.   contact amazon with that proof and demand a replacement, refund or repair as they feel fit.        
    • Thanks BN   I take it this is a good sign then like you say. I certainly won’t be making any payments to them.

    • 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

Not too sure this is in the right place or not.

 

One of the MSE / DFW lot said I would possibly get better advice here than on MSE.

 

I wrote to FOS with regards to Marbles and their failure under CCA to provide an agreement - a route taken as Marbles refused to help me when I stated i was struggling (actually told me they couldnt help until I was in arrears, then when I was, was told I needed to be up to date)

 

Anyway, letter is below - can raise some points myself, but would be grateful for any advice or direction.

When you say Marbles failed to send you your agreement, did you send a CCA request including the £1 ?

 

Did you receive the Default Notice & was it served correctly?

I receieved an "application form" - which looks the same as in wayoutneeded's post, excpet that one is much clearer (mine wont even scan)

 

I am pretty sure I didnt recieve a default notice - actually, just checked - i did on 22/12/08 - states "this is a default notice served under S 87...." Have no idea if this was correctly served...

Can you scan it, remove identifying details & post it up?

The timescale of that DN is 18 days & assuming it was posted first class you can deduct 2 days which leaves 16 days to remedy over the Xmas/New Year period when there is no postal service or banking facilities for several days (at least 4 days) so by my reckoning they haven't allowed you enough time to remedy the default. I would like other opinions on this one.

If I'm correct in my thinking it would make the DN defective in which case they would only be able to claim the arrears. The balance would be wiped out once they closed the a/c. Did they send you a termination notice?

I had a letter from HBOS (as they had now taken over the running of the account) threatening to do this on 26 Feb, stating thhis may be avoided by making a payment within 7 days.

 

Then had letter dated 13 MArch stating that "the DN recently issued...... you have failed to make a repayment...... as a result, we have terminated your agreement and the card facility is withdrawn."

 

Actually, I have just noticed - this letetr states that "failure to meet these demands (return of card etc) witihn 7 days will result in further details of the default being registered with CRAs" - this had already been done on 31/01

That's good enough.

Please tell me you didn't.

Assuming the next letter sent (certainly next one received) was from 1st credit on 30/03.

 

Have two or three letters from them, last one dated 23/04 (after my phone call to them) stating that thye had requetsed my credit agreement which would be sent in due course (still waiting) and that they didnt have to provide the Deed of Assignment (refering to S136 of Property of Law Act 1925) - I actually asked for the notice of assignment)

More questions and further details.

 

In my post above (default notice), from what I have read on here, this would appear to be invalid as it allowed insufficient time for remedy (12 days as apose to 14)

 

I have been having a bit of a clear out of and found a statement from BOS (Marbles0 dated 17/03/09 - this caused me to look through the paper work I have.

 

DN is dated 22/12/08 - this states the failure to make the minimum payments of X and that have exceeded credit limit by Y - they require payment of Y by 9/01/09 as this is greater than X. Further deatils also state that HFC will require the full payment of balance on the shown date.

 

 

Default was registered on my credit file on 31/01/09.

 

I then have a letter from BOS (dated 26/02/09) stating the next step will be to terminate my agreement.

 

Further letter recived (dated 13/03/09) stating agreement has been terminated as on below post.

 

Now I also have this statement (dated 17/03/09) - doe strhis indicate that the agreement wasnt terminated? And also, am I correct in thinking (from what I have read, or I may have misunderstood this) that the agreement should have been terminated before being registered with CRAs?

They have defaulted you before the remedy date, I'm not certain but I think it invalidates the DN anyway.

 

They do not have to terminate an agreement in order to register a default, they do however have to give you the chance to remedy the default before they do though. :rolleyes:

Isnt the default after - or am I missing something?

 

Remedy date was 09/01/09 (which was less than 14 days from service anyway) and default was 31/01/09.

 

TY for link on defaults - not making a lot of sense at the moment, so will have another read tomorrow and see if it sinks in.

Yes you're right, I'd misread it.

Another quick question.

 

Apologies, but just want to make sure I understand all, and dont dig a hole.

 

If the DN is defective, does this mean the default should never have been placed on the credit file?

an SAR would be useful to re enforce the lack of time

 

if (as is very likely) it wasnt posted until next day (23) that would completly bugger up the timescales!!

Thanks for the two posts - I will leave the SAR until after i get the next response from FOS.

 

I agree with the the timescales for the DN - but it would have been deemed served on 24 (if posted 22nd) or (29/30 if posted any later only gives 11 clear days (taking away bank hols and non banking days).

 

Then there is the arguement of delays because of the Christmas post
