    • Absolutely: The Homicide Act was repealed. So, after that they could no longer charge people for murder under the Homicide Act. (Not the greatest of examples, I accept, given murderers just get charged with murder being against the common law- but my point is:)   You can no longer be charged with Murder contrary to the homicide act. That doesn’t mean that those serving sentences for murder contrary to the Homicide Act, having been found guilty, had to be released the day the law was repealed.   Charges / restrictions couldn’t be placed under the repealed legislation (without e.g. a CCJ) once the Act was repealed. The repeal doesn’t mean existing charges / restrictions in force at the day of repeal have to be removed.
    • BazzaS Ah - now that complicates things - just when I thought I'd got my head round it!   I did think b] might be a source of worry for the purchaser. They have just instructed their solicitor yesterday but I haven't found one yet, preliminary enquiries didn't result in any clarity on the questions I posed. a] where do I find a CS who understands this and can share their knowledge with the buyer's CS?   I've no idea what the outstanding balance is as the council has not been in touch. I appealed many years ago and it wasn't resolved. I did do a SAR with the council and nothing came back from the Finance dept. so I was hoping my appeal had been accepted and the debt 'wiped' but they hadn't bothered to contact me. There were lots of changes up to the new Care Act 2014 which came into force on 01.04.15    Repeal: I was relying on the meaning below? Hence again I thought that's why the council hadn't pursued the debt and was just leaving the CO [or restriction] on the register to keep me on my toes! If a government repeals a law, it causes that law no longer to have any legal force.   Thanks
    • The issue is 2-fold (both related to perceived risk, in a very risk-averse profession): a) will you find a conveyancer who will agree and follow that they needn't worry, and just notify once sold, and b) buyer's wil be put off if their conveyancer says "well, there is a risk".....   The combination of these may be that unless you get very lucky, you'll only get interest in a sale if an undertaking to settle the outstanding sum is made.   As for the repeal : I imaging that it will prevent new charges / restrictions from when it came into force, not revoke pre-existing ones.
    • I have held a Credit Card with Natwest for over 30 years and in the last 6 months or so, I have not used it.     The card is due to expire in a couple of months and I  have had a letter asking whether I still needed a Credit Card.  And that if I did not contact them within a month, they would close the account.  In order to keep the account, apparently I have to phone them to ask them to issue another card on the expiry of the current one .   I have always maintained a Credit Card, just in case of emergencies and if you hire a car for example, they often want details of a Credit Card.   Is this a new policy by Banks ?  First time Natwest have done this.   I have had zero balances near to card expiry dates before and they have not done this.   And this is a warning note to others, that you should never ignore letters from your Bank, thinking it is just advertising information on their services.  Otherwise you may find that the Credit Card  account you thought that you  had, has been cancelled.     
    • Thanks Again BankFodder for your assistance.   I shall follow your advise and will keep you posted on my progress. I will no doubt need your help further down the line with County Court papers etc.   Gratefully FD

    • 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 all.

 

A friend of mine got a letter yesterday from Castlebridge Crecdit Mangement yesterday regarding a payday loan that they say he owes their cleint. In the letter they state that they will carry on attempting to take payment from him using his card details.

 

Now my friend has never had any prior dealings with this company and until yesterday had never heard of them. He also cant be sure if hes heard of their client either so ive told him to do a request for a CCA and notice of asignment etc.

 

But my question is. Is it legal for a company to pass on your credit/debit card details to a DCA, and is it legal then for the DCA to take payment using those details without your consent being given to the DCA to take such payments?

No, it isn't legal and he should inform his bank immediately and ask for the card he has to be cancelled IMMEDIATELY and that he be issued with a new one - it only takes a few days.

Make sure the card is cancelled asap & request a new one.

Report this lot to the OFT/trading standards as well.

Thanks Pinky

 

I thought it was illegal to do so, but thought id ask here first before giving him any advise on how to respond to them stating they would do that.

 

are there clients also liable or acted illegally by passing on such details to the DCA if so what law have they broke? and what shall i tell my friend to write in a letter in response to that. because if they have broke the law passing on those details, then am sure my friend would like to stick it to them

 

Accesspwd and Mr.Ton

 

You bet, am going to make sure their reproted to the OFT and TS

Chop and change this and send recorded...

 

Dear Sir/Madam

 

Account no:

 

You have contacted me regarding the account with the above reference number, which you claim is owed by myself.

 

I would point out that I have never had any such dealings with this company in the past.

 

On a more general note, what concerns me is that you state that you will be passing card details on to another company, as I understand it this is against the law.

 

I am fully familiar with the Office of Fair Trading Debt Collection Guidance which states that it is unfair to send demands for payment to an individual when it is uncertain that they are the debtor in question.

 

I would also point out that the OFT say under the Guidance that it is unfair to pursue third parties for payment when they are not liable.

 

What I require:

 

I would kindly ask what information you hold on me that made you contact me in the first place, and where you acquired my information from.

 

What steps are in place to ensure this does not happen to me again.

 

Confirmation in writing that I do not owe you or any client you represent this amount of money.

 

Confirmation that you have not placed any adverse data on my credit files.

 

A written apology for this mistake which led me to a state of panic.

 

As an OFT Licence Holder, you must have in place an official complaints procedure, I now require this within 14 days, if this is not forthcoming, I will report your actions to the Office Of Fair Trading.

 

I look forward to your reply.

 

Yours faithfully
