    • look up on land registry who owns the property then get in contact with your local environmental heath dept.   dx  
    • Hello all,   I have recently moved into a new property. The bedroom window is facing a bunch of commercial crates which have trash on top of them. The trash is maybe two metres away from the window, making it impossible for the window to be open (I am also afraid of rats being there).   The other windows of the property are facing a communal, enclosed area, which is making it difficult for the property to be properly ventilated. I have already raised this issue with my estate agency and they are trying do to something about it (to be honest, if I leave everything to them, this issue won't be solved until my tenancy is finished, and that is more than one year away).   I am asking for advice, or how could I approach this issue.   I have spoken to my council and, since they do not deal in private property, there is nothing they can do, at least this is what they have told me.   The property with the trash is not owned by my landlord. It is an open space, with big crates, closed off by a fence. If I could, I would climb those crates and remove the trash myself but I cannot. I also cannot climb out the window to reach the trash, as the window is too small.   At times, I see a car in that property but I have never seen the driver. I left a note in the car's window explaining the issue and giving my number. This was around a week ago and nobody came back to me.   
    • Hi   First off ALL Tenants need to re report all the different repairs again via their repairs procedure. Yes its good to get a list of all properties repairs with photo/video evidence signed by all property tenants but you all need to fight this individually as well as a group.   Next you all need to look up your rights on Repair i.e. The Right to Repair Scheme and also their Complaints Procedure.   http://www.legislation.gov.uk/uksi/1994/133/made   https://england.shelter.org.uk/housing_advice/repairs/right_to_repair_for_council_tenants   All Tenants need to take control back with these repair and ask in writing titling any letter 'FORMAL COMPLAINT' and stating the repair and why it hasn't been carried out to date and an exact date when it will be completed.   You also require clarification whether these Repairs come under the Right to Repair Scheme and if so why we were never informed of this. (delete or amend)   You also require copies of the following:   Right to Repair Scheme Policy (Not the Leaflet Repair and Maintenance Policy (Not the Leaflet) Solar Panel Policy (Not the Leaflet) Complaints Policy (Not the Leaflet) Equality & Diversity Policy (Not the Leaflet) When you get the above policies you need to take your time reading them and just think to yourself 'DID THEY DO THAT' in relation to your issue and if not mark it this way you build a list of what they haven't done/followed as per there own Policies and use it against them.   They will have time limits to complete repairs within for Emergency, Urgent, Routine repairs and if they exceed that time limit and need to extend it remember it is with you the tenants agreement not them telling you and tough you can wait.   (bear in mind any repairs during COVID-19 the time limits are now different and most routine repairs are stopped)  
    • I was on UC in late March, and recently received some quite non-committal message that the commitments would be returning, but no indication when.     If I remember correctly the expectation was that we could find at least one job per day to which to apply, or some such nonsense.   Given that the government can only guess how many workplaces will be safe :  1) to commute to/from at the time of job application; 2) to work in at the time of job application;    3) to commute to/from at the date of starting a job ; 4) to work in at the date of starting a job,  5) to commute to/from at the date permanent WFH is dropped; 6) to work in at the date permanent WFH is dropped,    and given that we have lost 20% of our economy, I fail to see how they can both reasonably and immediately mandate any minimum figure of jobs we must apply for whilst this virus just killed over 135 people in the UK (stats released today).  That is only down from 155 last week, and about 175 a fortnight back.   At this rate it will be another 7 weeks MINIMUM before the mortality rate is zero - if it ever reaches zero before the inevitable second wave.

    • 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

Good Afternoon Fellow CAG forum users!

 

I have recently been investigating my loan through.................

Are these people a) Trustworthy b) accurate with details.

 

I have paid a small fee (£25) for them to get copies on my behalf of the agreements of two loan accounts, one of them being HFC.

 

I had a call from .... stating that the document that is on my file for my agreement is blank!

 

 

No names No amounts and No Signatures. ..... state that they would not have a leg to stand on in court and that the loan is unenforceable.

 

Has anyone here used these people? Can i trust them...can i do this without going through these people?

 

It will cost me £170 to 'go legal' and do the worst and get my loan written off. this is a small amount to be paid to write off £3k worth of loans.

 

Any help and advise would be grately received

 

Thank you

Gee,

 

First of all welcome the forums, it's always good to see a new face.

 

I personally would not pay a third party a single penny when you can do exactly the same thing for free and also have the knowledge that you are not going to get ripped off.

 

Do you have a copy of the agreement provided by HFC if you do can you remove all personal information and post it up.

 

Think long and hard before handing over any money, there is more than enough experience here and with a little input from yourself we should be able to resolve this.

 

Did you have PPI on the loan by any chance?

Hi Crashlanding,

Will be watching your thread with interest as I have just written off to HFC to get a copy of my loan agreement.

 

I originally took loan out with Hamilton Direct Bank but believe HFC took them over. So hopefully did not take paperwork too..lol

 

Once i receive application from them, will create own thread and post it up.

Certainly the PPI element of the loan can be claimed back if acceptance of the loan application was made conditional on you taking out their insurance policies. Remember, it is up to THEM to prove they did not miss sell the policies not the other way round. Having won my claim against HFC for the miss selling of PPI I'm more than happy to give you a hand. Have a read of http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/payment-protection-insurance-ppi/144551-hfc-ppi-fos-complaint.html.

 

WRT the enforceability of the loans as far as I can see they contain the prescribed terms so MIGHT be enforceable in a court of law, however if neither of them are signed or have your mark that is a different box of frogs completely.

 

If they do not have an enforceable copy of the credit agreement on file they will either admit this but still try and collect the debt or right it off. If the former the only option would be to follow the route of CPR 31.16 and when they default go legal on their arse. It sounds scary but it is not, trust me.

 

HFC were fined by the FSA for an astronomical amount in 2007 and will have a hard time trying to convince a judge that they did not miss sell the policies, in fact I will bet the court fee they will not even attend.

 

Be under no illusion that HFC or GE Money are not going to back down with out a little bit of a fight but the battle can easily be won. If i can do it then anybody can. My battle with HFC was different but I did claim back over £4k is missold PPI premiums from GE Money for my wife.

 

Do not under any circumstances pay a third party to do this as I expect they will use the same letters and process but charge you an arm and a leg for the privilege. There are loads of genuine people here who are happy to help, but only if you are prepared to put some time and effort in yourself. Take the bull by the horns and do it with out paying others, it can in fact be enjoyable to watch them squirm.

Badger - Thank you for your help..... I feel that I will tackle this on my own with the help from yourself if that is possible?

 

Are you able to put the documents up on here for me to look over that you sued to win your claim?

 

Thank you for your help!

Dependant on who you choose as a third party it takes the hassle out of doing it for yourself. They have the expertise and takes the pressure off you. I have gone with a third party and they have been great for me, I've had an £18k secured loan all back!!! All legal costs were covered by insurance and PPI was added to this also. Quids in for me! Total cost to me was £195 quid. Well worth it!

Thank you for your feedback, I have been thinking this would be the best way too as they have the experience. £195 sounds like....prices did you have to pay more for PPI claim?

 

Thank you

OMG! Yeah, I'll just say mention the name Mrs Anderson, Mine is just coming through, I cant say who my lender is some sort of Gag thing. They settled out of court. Took some getting going but once off it was all go. I paid £60 which I was told was refundable and secured and extra £5k back they took a fee but it was well worth it to me. I'd recommend them!!:)

Good morning all!

 

in 2009 i had a default placed on a HFC loan account after i entered a debt management program. I am aware that this would be the said outcome as i was not paying the contractual amounts.

 

a few years later i jumped on the bandwaggon of PPI claims and i successfully claimed back a shed load of the outstanding balance. HFC closed the account and re issued me with a ne agreement with the PPI amount removed and altered the total balance due to my recent payments.

 

my question is:

 

Should they remove the default notice on my credit file as it was a false value?

 

If i defaulted on a loan that had PPI which i was mis sold and had to pay a premium for, then surely i should be entitled to have the notice removed from ym credit file?

 

if this is the case, could someone point me in the right direction to get this resolved.

 

thank you for your time

 

Graham

No it makes no difference the account was still in default.

They have to put the account back into the condition it would have been had ppi not been on it, so if you would not have otherwise been in default then take up the battle. However, if it would have been then there is nothing you can do.

That is correct even if a defaulted account is paid in

full if they payment was made outside the time limit

laid down in the Default Notice the entry remains on

the file for the six years from the default date and

would be marked satisfied.

good eveing,

 

i have a simple question:

 

i successfully claimed back ppi from HFC bank from a loan that i was currently paying off.

 

however, this loan was an extension of an earlier loan that i taken out which i am sure PPI was part of it.

 

when i successfuly claimed the ppi on the loan that has now finished, woudl this have included the PPI payments made to the previous loan account?

 

i am pretty certain that these loans had different reference/account numbers.

 

if someone can point me in the right direction i wold be truely greatful.

 

best regards

 

Graham
