    • EU deal replicated 'as far as possible' ... aka less than   "The British Government is continuing to work intensively on securing continuity with other countries. We have secured agreements – either signed or agreed in principle - that account for 64% of the UK’s trade with all the countries with which the UK is seeking continuity, should we leave the EU without a deal."   With what I've seen on that page I linked earlier, that would seem to be decidedly unambitious 'trade deals across the world larger than the EU
    • dx100uk - thank you for your advice.  I will send a SAR to Vanquis and really appreciate all the help on here.   I may have read your last sentence in the way that it was not intended but it has came across very judgmental and not helpful.  I have came on this site for some help, not to be judged.  If that was not your intention then I apologise as I realise text can be read in the way it was not intended.  
    • . I'm sorry but this is not correct. There is a very long established rule that you are required to exercise utmost good faith (uberrima fides) when becoming a party to any kind of insurance contract. This means that you have quite a strict duty to accept responsibility for disclosing any information which a reasonable person in your position might understand could materially affect the risk. I can imagine that the interpretation of this rule would not be applied quite so strictly to a very new and young driver – but the more that one has been driving and the more insurance policies one has held, then I think that the stricter  this rule becomes. It is also well established that one can misrepresent something simply by withholding information – by silence. I'm sorry to say that I think that this rule and the value of it is so self-evident that it is scarcely worth discussing. I wouldn't start raising this issue if I were you with insurers or the courts because you will come away with a bloody nose and loss of credibility
    • @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.

    • 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

Hello again,

 

I need some help.I have a secured loan with SPPL (although I only ever get correspondance from CAPSTONE now).

 

The loan is approx 19k secured on my flat.I took it out approx 5 years ago. All my statements say 'capital and interest' loan....Does that mean the amount should be dropping? Its still roughly what it was 5 years ago (19k). Which is what I would expect with an 'interest only' loan.

 

I also upload the CCA .They are actually the only company that gave me one of these from day one. I see nothing wrong with it but would appreciate someone looking over it for me, just to be sure.

 

Again,this could all be in order,but I just don't know anymore. Thanking you in advance.

Hello again, (posted this earlier in wrong forum)

 

I need some help.I have a secured loan with SPPL (although I only ever get correspondance from CAPSTONE now).

 

The loan is approx 19k secured on my flat.I took it out 6 years ago. All my statements say 'capital and interest' loan....Does that mean the amount should be dropping? Its still roughly what it was 6 years ago (19k). Which is what I would expect with an 'interest only' loan.

 

I also upload the CCA .They are actually the only company that gave me one of these from day one. I see nothing wrong with it but would appreciate someone looking over it for me, just to be sure.

The last 3 links are a Spring statement from last year. I get these quarterly. Does capital and interest mean it should be going down? (Had a few probs with bouncing direct debits hence the charges,some of which I managed to get refunded as were unfair.)

Hi Littledotty,

I dont know, its a long term loan.I just assumed that penalties were normal for the first ten years!?! it all seems a bit strange to me now that i am looking at it.

I haven't even made a dent in the balance and yet my statements say 'loan type- capital and interest'.

 

Do you think the cca is ok? thanks,Jo

Hello, Can anyone tell me if this CCA is ok?

 

It states the rate etc,on the back in standard t+c's.

 

Its a secured loan and I am 6 years into a 25 year stint. The balance is the same as when I started but I have read somewhere that no dent is made in a mortgage or big loan in the first few years.

 

I am under educated in all things financial but trying to get to grips.

hmmm sorry but at a quick glance looks ok to me.. both signatures and monthly payments, total amount payable showing etc

 

As it says at the bottom right.."the lender shoud have given you a copy 7 days before signing it etc', although even if they didn't i don't see how you could prove that conclusively.

 

All i can suggest is that you check the APR amounts/figures for major discrepancies.

 

Others may have further thoughts..

Hi Davey,

Thanks for that.

I want to ask for my statements but they seem to want £35 per statement. The amount I owe seems slightly more than it was 6 years ago,the only thing I can do now is try to look at the figures etc.

They want £35 per statement?! No way.. Do you have that in writing? If so i would make complaints about that to TS/OFT.

 

If you want the statements and everything else they have on you i would send a SAR. That's £10 and you will (should) get everything they hold on you.. including statements for the life of the account.

I know given the above, this may sound like a very stupid question. I will ask anyway..

 

Are you saying that the balance at the moment is still £19,965 ?

 

 

Subject to the t&c's and changes to interest rate. I would have expected the balance after six years to have dipped into the high £18,000's...

Hi Suetonious I have mentioned this before as just another example of their odious and unlawful conduct.

 

They have no intention of fulfilling the term. They just grab what they can when they can, before they come knocking. I know you wanted specifics but I didn't want to give you the exact figures as it would have been too easy to identify me. Notwithstanding that we still did have an interseting exchange on this issue...I can't quite recall but it may have been on the CB House of Commons thread..

 

In just 4 years the gap between the interest due and the amount payable each month totals in excess of £4000 but the principal never amortises.

 

I've put this down to the following:

 

1. It is likely top of the very high interest rates to make default more likely and quicker into the loan.

2. It is instead used to build up cash balances and cover expenses (Definite Fraud).

3. Such a 'policy' would increase the likelihood of them also being able to apply there charge regimes to a wider customer base an earlier than might be expected.

4. Who cares anyway because they'll repossess 5 years into the term, get that lovely erc and hopefully the consumer won't even notice.

4. Who cares anyway because they'll repossess 5 years into the term, get that lovely erc and hopefully the consumer won't even notice.

 

I remember our previous discussions very well. As I said last time without figures it is not possible to determine what is going on. However, in this particular instance the OP has kindly posted the figures, so it is possible to see what should be happening.

 

For example with regard to this agreement:

 

Starting Balance £19,965

Interest per annum @ 10.7% = £2,136.25

Monthly Payment £191.36 = £2,296.32

 

*Therefore the balance over a 12 month period increases by £2,136.25 (interest applied to account) but decreases by £2,296.32 (payments made to the account).

 

Therefore at the end of the first 12 months the balance of the loan should have reduced by £160.07 (starting balance + interest - payments made)

 

Providing that the payments made to the account are in excess of the interest applied to the account, mathematics dictate that the balance has to reduce.

 

If the monthly contractual payment is insuffficent to repay the interest applied to the account, I would strongly recommend that you make a complaint to the Financial Ombudsman Service.

 

*The above is a very crude calculation based on a number of assumptions with regard to interest rate and charges applied to the account. These figures are for illustrative purposes only

It would be very straight forward to determine if your account is operating incorrectly.

 

Check your annual statement.

 

1) Ensure that all the payments you have made are detailed and included within the statement

 

2) Check the interest has been calculated correctly (bear in mind if daily, monthly or annual)

 

3) Take your starting balance add the interest applied (once you hace checked it) to your account then minus the payments made to your account.

 

4) This figure should then match the final balance of your statement.

that's great stuff. I'll do some leg work on that and see what comes out. Before I do though can I operate on the basis of apr divided by 365 daily, 52 weekly and 12 monthly or is that too crude? Iimagine the calculations are more complex than that in the real world of sp mortgage finance !

However...whilst I wouldn't trust them as far as I could throw them they have interestingly given both an intererest charged and payment due figure for each month. This is not as useful as it seems as they have only recently started providing this.

Sadly it is a little more complex.

 

For example if the interest is calculated daily and applied monhtly, in relation to this agreement, the balance for the first 16 days of the month would be higher than the balance for the remaining days of the month (following the monthly payment on 16th).

 

Then there is the matter of which day the lender applies the interest to the account. Some apply it on the last day of the month and some of the first day of the month. Easiest way to do it would be to use an excel spreadsheet

Also just to show that the figures quoted on the agreement are correct, enter the details in this

 

Mortgage calculator : FSA money made clear

 

Mortgage Amount = £19,965

Years left 25

Annual Interest Rate (note not APR) 10.7

 

click calculate and the payment is £191.36, as per the agreement

I can concur with what you say sue

if the correct payments are being made the balance will reduce in step with those payments made and the interest charged year on

ie a family member has a loan which is of a slightly higher amount over less yrs at 10% and at the end of 5 yrs his balance is around your estimate

ps to that end his mthly payment is above 200 pounds

i remember that debate believe it was the sec prefered thread and I said then it would have to reduce if correct payments were made but as sue remarked without figures to go on who knows?

Hello, yes my start was 19,965 and it is now 18,948.86

 

After reading what everyone has says i now understand why it is at that amount. Thanks the explanations.I realise a few people have experience with sppl.
