    • I doubt they really do believe it.  They believe the party membership will believe it - and they already know they'll believe just about anything.
    • Anglian Water (although others may be culpable).   Some time ago users of this forum complained about the level or proportionality of standing charges on fuel bills.  The feeling was that 25% standing charge would be acceptable against the unit cost.  Anglian Water in Essex, responsible for sewage removal,  charge around 80% of a bill for this, my last account was £10 unit cost against a £44 standing charge.  Anglian claim that this is due to infrastructure issues and that my area is sparsley occupied.    Southend on Sea has 160,000 residents, hardly sparse, and infrastructure issues are their problem, not mine.  Anglian is also responsible, according to Environment Agency, of contaminating sea water in my locale.   If there is no legislation regarding the proportion of standing charge to unit cost, there certainly should be !  Any advice ?   (There is a wider issue of charging through third parties that could be taken up seperately.)
    • So - I continue to not pay any more?  Until they respond with the info I have asked for?
    • Hello and welcome to CAG. I'll move your thread to the Residential and lettings forum and leave you a link to follow from the Welcome forum.   I'm sorry to hear about your neighbour problems, people should be along to advise later.   Best, HB
    • Your only hope is asking for discretion on the grounds of well you didn't realise you had to pay online you expected a toll booth, you didn't see any sign of any penalty charge amount and basically it's your first time using this toll bridge and you were unaware of the process,.   In the past, for 1st time offence, Merseyflow have responded rejecting the appael but on this one occasion have reduced the penalty to the toll fee.   You might be lucky.

    • This is a bit of a lengthy one but I’ll summerise best as possible.
       
      THIS IS HOW THE PHONECALL WENT 
       
      I was contacted by future comms by phone, they stated that they could beat any phone contract I have , (I am a limited company but just myself that needs a business phone and I am the only worker) 
      I told future comms my deal, £110 per month with a phone and a virtual landline, they confirmed that they could beat that, £90 per month with a phone , virtual landline  they also confirmed they would pay Vodafone (previous provider) the termination fee. As I am in business, naturally I was open to making a deal. So we proceeded. 
      Future comms then revealed that the contract would be with PLAN.COM and the airtime would be provided by 02, I instantly told them that this would break the deal as I have poor 02 signal in the house where I live as my partner is on 02 and constantly complaining about bad signal
      the salesman assured me he would send a signal booster box out with the phone so I would have perfect signal.
      so far so good.....
      i then explained this is the only mobile phone I use for business and pleasure, so therefore I didn’t want any disconnection time in the slightest between the switchover from Vodafone to 02
      the salesman then confirmed that the existing phone would only be disconnected once the new phone was switched on.
      so far so good....

Hi SFU, long time no speak, was going to contact you regarding the Egg situation.

 

Last payment to Egg from me was August 2009 and since i am in Scotland, like yourself, the debt is SB'd in 5 years.

 

I did SAR them some time ago and they sent Barclaycard T&C's and an application/summary form from Egg with all my details on it, but no signature.

 

Just going to send them the "In light of the complete absence of any enforceable documentation......" letter and see how it goes from there.

Just checked my credit report and Egg have vanished from it altogether, not even listed under Marlin, and under closed accounts Barclays have it as satisfied.

 

Strange things going on as Marlin were listed the last time I checked.

 

Is Statute Barring from the last payment or the default date? I have another account that the default was not issued till almost a year after last payment.

Well reply from Marlin today, acknowledging the fact that I CCA'd them some time ago and they have failed to supply a valid agreement, "we are going to try again"

 

Stopped all collection activity till agreement can be found.

 

I have a copy of original EG one, Barclaycard agreement does not exist.

Stat Barred In England and Wales for credit cards and unsecured loans = 6 clear years from the date a contractual payment was due and not made, after which no further payment and/or unequivocal admission of liability being made.

 

 

Secured Loans & HP the date at which the creditor can demand repayment in full, this May be the default date or earlier formal demand for repayment in full. This also applies to bank accounts with ODs.

I see in my inbox a message from a user named "globetrotter" re contractual payments.

These are the payments required by the agreement/contract e.g. for a CC the minimum monthly payment.

Limitation (Statute Barring)is from the date when you first received a written demand of the repayment of the debt. Liitation will expire 6 years aftr the demand was made.

Section 6 of the Limitation Act 1980 states that section 5 will not apply to contracts like CCAgreements except where a demand in writing for repayment for the debt is made by or on behalf of the creditor. Where such a demand is made the cause of actio to recover the debt is deemed to have accrued on the date on which the demand was made.

Section5 states that an action founded on siple contract shall not be brought after the expiration of six years from the date on which the cause of action accrued.

In order to ascertain when the limitation period for a claim for repayment of the debt by Marlin expires we need to know when we all first received a written demand of repayment of the debt. Limitation wil expire six years after the demand was made.

 

Does the Site Team agree ? URGENT.

Section 5 can be taken (in the cases of Credit Card/Unsecured Loans) as the date when the payment was due after which no further payment was made (there breach of contract/cause of action). so for safety 1 month after the last payment.

 

 

Secured Loans/HP/ Mortgages under seal section 6 will apply.

So Marlin come back with the same guff, T&C's for a Barclaycard and a statement from Egg showing payments made, and a plea for a payment to the account or else!!!

 

Still no signature to be seen, I could send them T&C's from anybody and say pay me, ridiculous.

Post84~# explains:

 

 

For a credit card the 6 year clock starts ticking the date a payment was due and not made after which no further payment or unequivocal written admission of liability was made so approx. 1 month (for safety) after the last payment.

 

 

What you have is intended to be a reconstituted agreement, no signatures required.

Had a letter today stating Marlin have changed their name. The letter differes from the annual "statement" that Marlin send each year, in that there is no statement as such - just a total owed and asks me to contact them regards paying my egg debt of £8k off. No threats just a furtive offer of help arranging payment.

 

It will become statute barred in just over a months time. I hope to god that this does not signify them starting down the court path.

 

Obviously I'm ignoring the letter.
