    • Ok thanks guys for all the help & advice I think I will go the DRO option but will open a new bank account somewhere else first etc.  The only other things im little worried about is reading on the DRO it says about I wont be able to apply for credit but what about things like my car insurance as thats classed as credit paying it monthly Plus they say i must not have assets or car worth over £1,000 so what about things like my car worth around 2.5k and as said before when my father passed away he left me his camper that I cant part with its worth about 4k and what about things in house and jewellery etc ?? Can they come to house and check and so on
    • threads merged  please keep to one thread per issue.   dx  
    • read it proprly.. it doesn't say WILL anything and original creditors don't do court as they don't want the judge delving into their business model nor the bad publicity.   as for the FOS you just have to let it run. yours is a very short time since yo put it into them typically it always takes 6-9mts normally before they move on anything though they usually send you an ACK they have the complaint.        
    • Since the last post on this thread I have sent a complaint to the FOS but have not heard anything from them as yet either, I'm guessing they're rather snowed under and on reduced staff so no real surprise.   Still had nothing approaching help from lending stream but today they emailed me default notices for the loans, again demanding I phone them and pay up in full or they will begin court proceedings.   Any advice as to how I should proceed please?
    • 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:  Havering Charge Certificate.pdf   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,  
      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

here's one I completely forgot about. Tied loan to the property. Don't have any T&Cs other than what's on that document but could you guys check the wording in this? I thought the figures had to be put down as 'credit' and not 'loan'?

 

Also, have a look at the wording in the agreement in the link in my previous post. Now have a look at S1 and s2 in thhis link:-

Since I'm not great with figures, my wife reckons that the bank is charging interest on the loan and the PPI combined. Can anyone concur?

 

The PPI instalments are decreasing over time, obv as a percentage of the balance. Is it admissible for them to have done it this way?

 

Fear I have opened a dificult one this time. Any observations?

Hi Flyboy

 

A few things jump right out...the lack of information on that credit agreement is shocking....hope other caggers can confirm most of the necessary info is missing - unenforceable maybe? (not my forte I'm afraid :))

 

The amount they are deducting from your loan account for insurance is not the amount stated on your agreement - nowhere can I see that it states on your agreement that you are paying or agree to pay interest on the PPI, yet you obviously are.

 

And my favourite - it states at the bottom that they will keep any comission they get for selling this insurance. Oh dear...if they did and they did not explain this to you, tell you how much etc then they have boo booed big time and you have a very big case against them.

 

There is also the 'admin fee' - you seem to be paying interest on that also - and they have not laid that out correctly on the agreement - should be another huge mistake.

 

All in all - there are many issues to dig into here!

I guess I need to ask them for the application form as well, do I, for I suppose on that it would state whether they would be keeping any commission? Must admit that never crossed my mind. And we did take out the PPI voluntarily (although advised to, but that seems fair), for this was a 'big gun' loan secured against the house.

 

The PPI interest is the main bone of contention as that's what my wife has spotted in her calculations. As I said, I'm trash with numbers so if any number-crunchers can back up Dipply75s observations I'd be grateful.

Anyone back up Dippy's observations?

 

There also seems to be contention as to whether a lender is allowed by law to add the PPI premium onto the loan itself. There is a ruling on this by a judge that it was unfair to do so:-

 

London North Securities Ltd v Mr

 

OK, so the Appeals thought otheriwse. The PPI cost remained withtin the charges but is still my view that if a lender does that - add the PPI into the loan term, then the total amount of credit stated on the agreement cannot ever be correct! If you look at my 1st scan - http://i31.photobucket.com/albums/c370/kakkadoo/Scans/TiedLoan1014.jpg - there are 120 monthly payment of £143.12, which is made up of the loan, the admin fee(!!) and interest. Nowhere, in that paragraph, does it state that the PPI is to be included in that calculation yet, according to my wife's calculations, the PPI does in fact appear to be added into the term of the loan interest.

 

Also, there is no mention of the total amount of credit on that form.

 

Can someone check and confirm wife's calculations?

Hi Flyboy

A bit of an obvious question but did you do a SAR?

I got hit with a PPI for car finance and when I got the info back it clearly stated what the commision was and who got it. £400 somebody made out of me that day, get 10 customers a day and happy days!!!!!!!!!!!

It's no longer just the PPI that interests me: it's the way the loan is set out itself. HAven't CCAs them as have a copy here.

 

I don't have any T&Cs with it although some of them seem to be included in the copy agreement, which is what we've had since it was signed. There is no total limit of loan and they refer to it as a 'loan' and not 'credit'.

 

The PPI has been lumped into the loan, along with the admin fee. I think that's wrong; I just need help in proving it.

Yes, but I need back-up with this. I need proof whether it's right or wrong to add PPI into the loan. We did chose it (given that the loan is tied to the house) but I think it's wrong to add the PPI and admin fee into the loan becuase then the total cost of the loan is wrong! The way they agreement is set out looks iffy, too.

 

HAve you looked at my scans?

Yes looked at the scans, your PPI is not decreasing its the same figure insurance premium, this is what you'll claim back.

Your interest is decreasing over the loan period because the balance is lowering over time.

So it should be easy to work out the premiums youve paid, we then need to see if you have a valid claim for it all back

 

Sorry my mistake just seen it is decreasing.

My two main points are:-

 

1) Is the PPI allowed to be lumped in with the loan?

 

2) Is the agreement enforceable?

 

If Yes to 1), then the loan (credit) limit is incorrect. It's incorrect, anyway, as the repayments, as stated , are only meant to incude the laon, the admin fee and interest. Nowhere does it state that PPI is to be included in that figure! Also, there is no credit limit stated.

Howdy flyboy

In response to your first question :

1) Is the PPI allowed to be lumped in with the loan?

It was when you took out the loan, however "single premium" policies were banned in May 2009, so now they are unable to do it. If you were to make a claim on this type of premium you would be more likely to get a favourable result as "Single Premium" policies were found to be unfair to the consumer, and obviously banned.

What concerns me is your description of the way they sold you the PPI - the recommended it to you and you felt like you had to take it....is it suitable, are you actually able to claim on it (any health issues, employment issues, other policies etc).

 

Defo send a SAR and CCA request - get all the info you can and see whats in THEIR records - many many folk find surprising differences ;)

 

And I still think there are many of the prescribed terms missing from your agreement. (do you remember signing the security also?)

 

Sorry for the hundred questions, coffee overdose lol

But was it banned retrospectively? I don't see how you can enforece that by law. HAve you a link back up your statement?

The issue isnt whether or when it was banned, it was deemed unfair in court thats why so many people are claiming it back, I'll have to dig around and get the cases now:rolleyes:

The security was their stipulation, if I recall correctly. CAn't mind why. We did ask for the protection and found out, four years back when I went self employed that I wasn't covered by it but my wife said we needed it for her work, just in case.

 

The PPI is one issue but I feel, aslo, that that agreement is not set out right.

Wasn't retrospective I don't think but they were found to be unfair. Unless the bank made it clear that they were adding it to your loan and therefore paying lots interest on it then it was unfair and misleading.

 

Their paperwork certainly gives NO CLUE this is what was happening with your premium! Their own agreement hangs them methinks

 

I agree, I think your agreement is way wrong

Case, then? I will not stop paying this in the meantime, though. I think if I go after them re PPI alone, the warning bells will clang loudly for them. Even if I cancel it now, they will panic, given what I've done to them, recently.I think it's best if I go after them on both the PPI being added and not being stated in the agrrement as being part of the loan and also on the enforceability of the loan itself.

 

anyone agree>?

The CCA will show me no more than what I already have on file, bar my signature, of course. Shall I still do that?

 

I also need one of the experts on here to have look at the scans and the basis of the arguement.

The purpose of requesting the CCA is one to see if they have it - if they don't the loan can go into dispute and they cannot take court action until they supply it.

 

The other is to see if it is the same as some folk have found major differences between their original and the banks 'copy' (allegedly :D) or things added. My mate recently discovered the bank had added PPI without her knowledge and the signatures were very different on what was supposed to be a carbon copy!

 

Compare their copy with what has actually gone on in your statements - see if everything matches up ok

 

Always worth checking ;)

I know all about the CCA routine: I scared off six accounts because of it!:)

 

I agreed to the PPI but I have just found out from my wife that we were told we had to take out the PPI because of the amount, which was £13K. Not an awful lot for such a demand?

 

If I'm going after them it has to be on both accounts: the PPI (now possible mis-selling) and it's inclusion into the loan without being mentioned as being part of the loan and the wording and thus enforceability of the account itself.

 

Need someone to further expand that latter part.

what do you mean the PPI being included with the loan? on your agreement it has the right figure for the amount and apr and repayments and then a fruther payment of 14.85 for the PPI.... sorry i don't understand where you and dippy see this as included with interst etc :( coudl you tell me so I know cheers

The figures don't add up (or subtract down) on the statements. They are lumping in the PPI together on the whole account. It doesn't state that on the agreement. Perhaps I wasn't being clear on that. Also, there is no mention of 'total credit' as there should be, yes? Or does the word 'Loan' cover that? I thought they couldn't use the word loan, that it had to be 'credit'?

 

The PPI should not have been lumped in with the total credit. The sums cannot add up right if it is!

i still can't see where the ppi has been added to the loan :(

what i see: they charge you interest on the balance then the next day add the ppi premium so thats deducted from your payment and the rest of the payment goes towards the balance so i cannot see any interest on the ppi.

 

if you put your loan amount and apr into this:

Loan Calculator, Loans Calculator, Loan Payment Calculator

 

it comes out as the same as on your agreement.

 

what am i missing?
