    • 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: 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

    • 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, not sure if this is in the right place for the forum. i've recently tried to get my credit file with this service but they have to do more checks to get it to me. well im still waiting. i have had a lot of old debts appear out the blue and want to sort my credit history out and get it ok again as i know its bad without seeing it. with statute barred debts do these stay on your file or are they removed after 6 years?

Which companies have you asked?

 

I applied online with Experian, and they let me in after sending me a pin number and confirmation of previous addresses, which I had to pay for.

 

When I finally got past that hurdle it was all very colourful and detailed, but didn't really tell me a great deal

 

Best you can do methinks is approach with caution

Asking you for further info sounds very very suspect. I think there may be several of those debts they need to 'clean out' first.

 

I've been informed that the people who check their files regularly have better files because Experian put them 'first' when having a houskeeping clear out, if you haven't had your file checked for ages and then start checking it then they start panicking and do what they should have done in the first place.

 

Also now you have checked their 'alert' system has been activated and every debt you have acquired over the last six years will rear its head - they are closely tied in with debt collecting agencies so their 'friends' will be writing in their droves.

 

Also avoid dealing with companies who claim they can clear your credit rating and charge you for it, there is nothing you can't do with the advice on here.

Very sound words there! If anything looks too good to be true then it usually is

I applied with Experian credit expert and was just curious to see what was on there. All my debts are from over 6 years ago. All other credit I have is up to date. I'm being hassled by the DCA's for debts some of which are 10 years old from my teenage years when credit was chucked at me when starting my first job. I want rid of all this from my credit file if possible and just looking for a bit help through the forum. Thanks for the help with this.

 

I can honestly say i've never actually seen my credit file so like you say probably not really upto date.

 

Since 1998 i've had 4 addresses including my present one and my parents house from the start.

 

So after 6 years are all defaults/statute barred debts etc removed from your file?

 

In 1999 I had a CCJ also put that was paid via attachment of earnings within a year period would that still be on there?

 

A bit annoying really because I want to see my credit file more than ever now and I can't access it!!

Well finally been able to see my report. I have 1 default on there which I new about.

 

The one thing I am annoyed about is the 1 ccj which is on there. A previous employer over paid me when I left. Well not over paid me, paid me up till the friday and I only made it up to the wednesday. They wanted it back and I just ignored them. Well they took me to court and I paid it. I cant believe that its on there though. Totally forgot about that one and will have to wait another 2 years for it to come off.

If you paid the CCJ within a month it should not be showing on your CRA report at all - and Experian know that.

Yeah i paid it straight away at the court office? It was about 90 quid. How do i go about getting this removed? I rang the court and they said it had been settled and i would have to write to the court so they can notify experian.
