    • Nothing to do with your own Bank.     Try to withdraw the money from Parentpay early next week and if no joy contact them.   It may be that the money is showing, but has not fully cleared on their system,
    • Hi all,   Just an update with contractual terms. These terms are from a contract at a similar time to when Tracey started as we think they have changed since.   The contract reads as follows:   Termination of employment  Xxxxxxx (Nursery) will provide written notice of termination of your employment in accordance with statutory requirement (currently 1 week’s notice for each year of continuous service, up to a maximum 12 week’s notice).   Once you have successfully completed your probationary period for the company you are required to give 1 month’s written notice of termination of employment.   Regards   Matt             
    • Thanks for helping with the post;   Still waiting for a reply from the DPD.
    • I thank the Consumer Action Group Members for getting me this far in my case which is still in progress.   Situation: The Court has reversed earlier permission for me to rely on witness summaries.    The question upon which I am seeking help, please,  is - do I need to bother myself as to why the Court has reversed permission to rely on witness summaries?  If so, what line of logic or law can might I follow because clearly, the Court has said one thing and then another a few weeks later, of its own motion, the Court has reversed the earlier decision. I find this development quite extraordinary in the sense that as a result of being granted permission earlier, I served the three Witness Summons which had the Court stamp.   Background Having given me permission to serve 'Witness Summons' which I served on 3 hostile witnesses several weeks ago, the Court has now reversed it's earlier decision, and refused me permission to rely on 'witness summaries' pursuant to paragraph 32.9(2), citing that I have not shown steps taken to obtain witness statements from the 3 hostile witnesses.  I however, made two attempts to talk to the hostile witnesses who have been non responsive and I can evidence this.   I would be immensely grateful for some steer from Forum Members, please.
    • Pubs all seem to be doing a roaring trade around here. It does make me feel uncomfortable but At least they are finally making some money. Our area, the South West never really got hit badly by the pandemic. Wiltshire has regularly seeing zero confirmed cases and deaths. So we will have to see how opening pubs really pans out!

    • 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.

 

I received a response to my formal complaint I sent to DG solicitors as they had not responded to my request for a copy of the agreement for a credit card.

 

I have attached the letter for your records and they only provided me with their latest terms and conditions and a blank credit cared request form without my signature.

 

Any guidance as to how I should respond?

 

Many thanks.

I would ask (as a District Judge would ask);

Did you have a credit card?

Did you use it?

Have you made any payments to the account,whether regularly or not?

Did you retuern the card? Or do you still have it?

I note that they make reference to Reg 7 of the Consumer Credit (Cancellation Notices & Copies of Documents) Regulations 1983.

 

Reg. 7 makes reference to a 'Copy of the EXECUTED AGREEMENT'.

 

A copy of the 'Executed Agreement' [Emphasis] is what has to be supplied, together with;

any other document referred to in it.

 

Until the above docs. have been supplied, your request under the CCA has not been complied with.

 

End of!

Hi AC.

 

Should I just ignore them or should I send another letter to them and if so any suggested templates to use?

 

Many thanks.

reg 3 of the consumer credit cancellation notices & copies of documents regulations 1983 states that signatures and names may be omitted.

 

However;

 

In respect of regulation 7 which states;

 

7(1) Where an agreement has been varied in accordance with section 82(1) of the Act, every copy of the executed agreement given to a debtor, hirer or surety under any provision of the Act other than section 85(1) shall include either -

 

a) an easily legible copy of the latest notice of variation given in accordance with section 82(1) of the Act relating to each discrete term of the agreement which has been varied;

 

or

 

b) an easily legible statement of the terms of the agreement as varied in accordance with section 82(1) of the Act.

 

I am of the opinion that reg 7 refers to a copy of the EXECUTED AGREEMENT and that sub sections a) or b) are in addition to this and NOT ANY ALTERNATIVE to sending the "ACTUAL EXECUTED AGREEMENT"

Hi AC.

 

Many thanks for the response on this again.

 

I have read somewhere that if I request an SAR then they have to provide the original agreement - is this correct? If so can anyone point me the right direction for a template letter for SAR request?

 

Many thanks

This is a standard template that DG send when they do not have the actual agreement.

 

You may wish to ask them (as a District Judge might ask), whether the the original executed agreement is in their possession, and if so, why they have failed to produce it, as they would need to do if they wished to enforce in court.

 

I do not think that there is any argument as to whether there was a credit card, whether or not it was used, and whether or not it was returned. Nor do I think it matters particularly, because without the original executed agreement it cannot be shown what the terms of its use were.

 

My own experience is that the HSBC/MCS/DG system will continue to send out templates (including ones threatening court action) even where they have admitted they have no agreement. What they will not do is go to court, because they are not that stupid.

 

I would recommend a SAR; in my case it provided documentary evidence that HSBC staff had lied to me, and also that they did not have an agreement and knew it.

Thanks ScarletPimpernel.

 

Should I SAR HSBC or DG Solicitors as I need to make a postal order out to them for £10 and how long should I give them to provide me with all the information?

 

I found this SAR template thanks to hellhasnofury in this thread (http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/payment-protection-insurance-ppi/92686-sar-template-ppi.html) and was wondering if this would still be applicable?

If you SAR HSBC and include in the request all data held by subsidiary companies including MCS and DG you will get everything for one fee

Thanks again ScarletPimpernel.

 

As I only have the details for DG Solicitors, do you or anyone else have HSBC's address details and to whom should I make the letter out to, i.e which department and should I make the postal order payable to HSBC Bank Plc?

 

Also is the account still in dispute or should I make payments while I send and wait for the details of the SAR?

 

Also, if the account has in anyway been defaulted, would this affect my outcome in disputing the agreement in any way?

 

Many thanks.

What dg say about a request under s77/78 is correct.

 

This is the problem with using this section.

 

I would suggest that you send HSBC a sar specifically requesting the signed agreement, or a s10 dpa notice and have a read of this sticky:-

Thanks nicklea.

Do I need to make any payments while I send the SAR or is the account still in dispute?

 

Also, if the account had been defaulted a long time ago, would this affect the outcome of my dispute at all?

 

Many thanks

How long ago was the account defaulted? If it was more than 6 years ago it won't be on your credit file any more.

 

If I were you I would ask for a copy of the DN as hsbc DNs are generally non-compliant.

 

If you are just making a token payment to them at the moment then I would suggest that you carry on doing this for now.

 

The address to send the sar request to is:-

 

The Data Controller

HSBC

8 Canada Square

London

E14 5HQ

Thanks nicklea.

 

Am I correct in assuming that if I request a SAR, then any default notices should also be included or do I need to specify this as well when submitting the SAR?

 

If memory serves me correctly the card was taken out in about 2005 and due to unforeseen circumstances, could not meet all my financial commitments at that stage and thus was in arrears for payments etc. Shortly afterwards the card was returned to HSBC and have been making payments on and off to DG Solicitors.

Hi :),

You might find this SAR template to be more specific to your situation:

http://www.consumerforums.com/resources/templates-library/86-debt-collectors/576-subject-access-request-debt-a-dca

Have a read through and if there's anything else specifically that you believe they hold, add it. Emphasise that you require a copy of your SIGNED agreement.

Send that to the bank. You might want to reply seperately to the Solicitors, stating that as far as you are concerned, they have not fully complied to your request and the account is still in dispute.

Maybe something on the lines of:

 

The alleged agreement you have sent in response to my CCA request is clearly a generic computer printout. Having taken legal advice I am aware, but disappointed, that you have chosen to send the minimum you feel you are required to send in response to my request.

As I am sure you are aware, in order to enforce any agreement you would be required to produce the original signed copy of a valid agreement in Court.

I therefore respectfully suggest that in order to resolve this matter as speedily and openly as possible, without wasting further time, you either supply me with a copy of the original signed agreement or a signed statement to the effect that you do not have one.

I regret I am not prepared to make any further payments to this account until or unless you demonstrate my legal liability to do so as requested above. Until this time the account remains in dispute.

However on satisfactory production of signed, valid, enforceable documentation I will be pleased to enter a suitable repayment arrangement.

Again, amend to suit.

 

Hope this helps,

Elsa x

Hi all.

 

It just gets better and better.

 

After I had sent an SAR to DG Solicitors, I never received a response from them and it seems as though they passed all the information over to Credit Resource Solutions Ltd. I again sent another SAR request to Credit Resource on the 17th of August this year and never heard back from them.

 

Today, I received a letter from another company called Newman Debt Collection Agents regarding the same account. I just don't know what to do anymore - if I send this new company a brand new SAR, I'm sure that they will just pass the details over to another Debt Collection agency and the vicious circle will just keep on going.

 

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

 

Many thanks.

Hi again :-),

This is what happens - they periodically pass the account on to different debt collectors. You just have to keep seeing them off every now and again until the 6 year Statute Barred period.

Rereading your thread..

things have moved on a little since then in that some daft judge has decreed that they don't actually have to send a copy of the SIGNED agreement to satisfy a CCA request, a reconstruction with original and varied T&C's will do. (Doesn't mean they can get away without the ORIGINAL in court though, although some occasionally try).

 

The SAR should have gone to the original bank. There's no point sending a SAR to a debt collector unless they own the account and you've been paying them for some time. They can only send records of what THEY hold on you, not what the bank held.

 

As it's been a while, I'd send another CCA Request to your new friends (much cheaper at only a £1 too!)

Let's see what they come up with then we'll start quoting CPUTR 2008 at them if they don't produce and keep threatening.

 

Send that then sit back and enjoy your Christmas :-)

PS the current CCA template link is in my blog..it's been revised I think
