    • Hi,   I received two PCNs in October 2019 from Havering Council. All the below applies to both PCNs, as the correspondences were at the same time:   Fast forward to February 2020, I file witness statements on grounds that I made representations within 28 days but did not receive a rejection notice.   The TEC cancelled charges.   Havering write to me asking for supporting evidence of representations that I made.   I email them screenshots with timestamps of the representations.   In early March Havering reply to me by email 'confirming receipt of email and both cases are now on hold pending an investigation. Please allow time for a full response to be sent.'   Fast forward to 18th June Havering write to me the attached: https://i588.photobucket.com/albums/ss328/pdottj/Mobile Uploads/20200630_164504.jpg   Now, it seems as though the sender of this letter is not up to date with both cases and is unaware of the TEC's decisions, as well as the email correspondence.   My questions are, 1) What should I do next? and 2) Is there a way to use their misstep to avoid paying for the PCN entirely?   Thank you.

    • Hi   When you say lease is this a Private Rented Property? (is it a lease or an AST)   Exactly what type of Agreement did you have and start date and end date?   Was your Deposit protected in a Tenancy Deposit Scheme and your were given a copy of the Prescribed Terms of that Scheme?   When you moved out of the property was this agreed with the Landlord and a check out inspection agreed? (i note you mentioned they couldn't carry out the inspection due to covid-19)   Does your lease agreement have any clauses in it for 'Late Payment of Rent or Rent Arrears'? (if so what does it state)   Is there anything in the documentation from Lowell's giving a breakdown of this money owed? (does it have anything mentioning damage  or it is just rent arrears/charges)      
    • you can't continue the payments eitherway ...think about it............... so it makes no odds if you stop payments now does it...   it can't harm you by stopping else they'd be no point in either dro or pro-rata as it shows either would thus be pointless   pers i'd go DRO simply contact an approved intermediary
    • it's interesting to see the default has gone, but that would not have been the cra but lowells themselves, or poss the default reached 6yrs and was auto removed?   anyway no you don't take them to court and no don't need to settle the debt it's not harming you.   if you look at lowell claimform vanquis threads here (use our search to right) you'll see thats the usual twaddle they roll out for a CCA return which has never won them a court claim yet.

    • 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 I bought my car in Nov 2007 from welcome, it was my 2nd car.

My statement of price indicates Amount of credit/cash advance £8950. I took no insurances as i cancelled them all after 2 days just to **** them off.

My apr is 19.9% and flat rate is 10.40% and my monthly amount is £ 264.03. My totalover 48 months is £12673.44.

 

Yesterday i went to a garage to look at a new car, i was interested in VT'ing mine and buying another from Toyota. whilst there, the guy did an HPI check, even though i said i was VT'ing. It came back as no HPI on the car and no loan secured against it.

 

My contract is 2 pages. The title reads -

Credit agreement regulated by the consumer credit act 1974

 

Key financial information:

 

Amount of credit for goods ( P - U) £7950.00 A

Amount of credit for refinancing £1000.00 D

Total amount of credit £8950.00

 

They have added £416.00 credit for refinancing

 

On the back it has the usual about no right to cancel etc and the right to settle

 

It says after half the term has elapsed £5.564.16 is the amount needed to terminate. However, at the bottom is states about calculating the amounts and that they are only illustrative.

I have paid 17 months worth and are not far off that

I looked at my invoice and bill of sale

The car was £8075, less part ex £4188.13, sub total £3886.87. Add HP settlement due £4188.133 NET PRICE £8075.00

Amount due from finance company £7950.00

Balance £125.00

less deposit £125.00

 

So, they added £1000 just to do the deal.

 

Now my query is, what is the crack when you then find out that the car is not on HP and that they have mis sold you a personal loan for the amount, charged you £1000 and added extortionate interest/

 

As i see it, surely the contract is null and void, it has been mis sold as as a personal loan.

Am i now therefore within my rights to just part ex my car, sell it or whatever, and then put my contract into dispute?

 

I have checked over my statement, it is showing as having recieved 10 payments as of Jan 09. Starting Jan 08, I have made 11 payments, being allowed to miss 2 due to being in hospital. However, it took them so long to re write everything after i cancelled my insurances, thats why my dd did not start until Jan 08, but i pai the full amount with insurances then, it looks like that has got lost somewhere.

 

What should i do, shall i put into dispute and challenge it. If there is no HP then what have i got and where do i stand.

 

Many thanks in advance for all your help and advice

Emma

 

Hello again

 

i just wanted to add, that i have just checked all my credit reports with Experian and my file is showing below

Company name: WELCOME FINANCIAL SERVICES LTD

Account type: Hire purchase/Conditional sale

Started: 25/01/2008

Current Balance: £7,505

Repayment Period: Monthly Payment: £264 over 49 months

File Updated for the Period to: 07/06/2009

Status history:

[] brackets indicate most recent months status [ ] What's this?

Summary of payment history: In the last 16 months of account activity, the number of status 1-2 is 0 and the number of status 3+ is 0

 

so it looks like i have nothing recorded against me

 

I am now even more confused

welcome to CAG. Do as postggj says and post the agreement up for us to see - we really can't tell very much without.

 

However, it does look like it is a restricted-use fixed-sum loan rather thanan HP agreement. If that is the casem there is no problem with you part-exing the car as you own it not them. You will still owe the balance though.

 

Proving mis-selling is the difficult part. Saying you thought it was an HP agreement or were toldit was, won't do as it is just your word against theirs. You need something in writing IMO

HI

I purchased a car in Nov 2007 from Welcome, i was looking at VTing and went to a garage for a HP check. It transpired that my car was on a CST and not Hp at all. So i traded it in as it was knackered, I am now paying on 2 cars monthly.

 

There is a load of rubbish on my agreement about optional fee of £1000 etc. I am awaiting a SAR,

I was sold what i was led to believe was an HP contract for a car, not a loan

 

Is there anything i can do?

The guy from the welcome office called me up quite late last week and asked me to move my dd for my personal loan to the 25th of the month, the same as my car payment date. When are they gonna close down and leave me alone.

 

Is it worth telling them i have lost my job, wait til my debts gone to legal and hope that they offer me a decent settlement figure, at the minute its silly money

Thanks all:)

Hmmmm how many of these are we seeing lately that were supposed to be HP and then turn out to be a loan??

 

I wouldn't have traded it in I would have escalated it to FOS as so many of these are coming out at the moment Welcome prob would have allowed you to VT

 

Thats hindsight though.

 

Optional Fee of £1000 - isn't an option fee to buy goods as in a HP??

 

Perhaps a retroactive complaint to FOS could be in order?

 

Never do anything to help Welcome either if they want you to move something its cos it's in their interest not yours - say no!

Hi all

 

I have just written to my local head office explaining that due to some very serious unseen circumstances I am unable to make the full payments this month. Which are £264 and £109 and that could i pay £109 and £50.00.

I missed my payment last month and sought permission for this from my local office. I was 1 payment in advance on one of my accounts.

 

Anyway, due to the serious nature of my unforseen circumstances and the fact that my credit card has had £1774 put on by someone else that i cant claim back ( putting me over my limit TO £227 INTEREST A MONTH), i am now ******.

Therefore i have contacted payplan and tomorrow doing my interview with them.

My question is.......

Does Welcome accept Debt Management Plans and if they didnt and it went to court would that show i was willing etc?

 

Also, what will happen to me, will they keep ringing me, visiting etc. Will my partner find out? I dont have assets but am prepared to pay them £200 a month towards my accounts. I think that is reasonable.

 

Any help would be great - thanks

 

I have requested a SAR and a CCA recently.

Any PPI on the loan ? excessive charges ? And they are not allowed to bypass debt management companies as highlighted in the OFT's guidelines

 

f. pressurising debtors to pay in full, in unreasonably large instalments,

or to increase payments when they are unable to do so

 

c. refusing to deal with appointed or authorised third parties, such

as Citizens Advice Bureaux, independent advice centres or money

advisers

d. contacting debtors directly and bypassing their appointed representatives

e. operating a policy, without reason, of refusing to negotiate with

debt management companies

I would send an email to the OFT. They are in a clear breach of 3 of the OFt's guidelines which is against CPUTR2008 -

c. refusing to deal with appointed or authorised third parties, such

as Citizens Advice Bureaux

, independent advice centres or money

advisers

d. contacting debtors directly and bypassing their appointed representatives

e. operating a policy, without reason, of refusing to negotiate with

debt management companies
