Its the same old, same old with Blemain and they use the same tactics on everyone. Crime pay's, because their getting away with it and have been for years, we are after all, the gullable public, vulnerable or desperate, to have enlisted their services in the first place. I know I was, im a whooole lot wiser now!

 

Just need my money back and to watch them get screwed.

 

I hate seeing new arrivals here because I know what Blemain put me through and someone else is having that experience, which no one should.

Hi Dax and all!!

 

Surviving reposession case against our good friends Blemain Finance. Now they are at it again. I have not missed any payments, instead have paid more than CCJ states I should. Now received Notice of Default Sum with charge of £ 138.00. I phoned them, and like the old wiley fox I have become, I spoke sweetly to them! I told them that as a simple soul I didn't understand, and could they explain the charge? The silly sphinktermuscle I spoke to said, yeah, no problem. It was two charges at £69 each for litigation. making £ 138.00. I thanked him kindly for his valuable information, and asked him if he could be so kind as to deduct this charge from the £ 200.= I overpaid. He said this was impossible, because they keep the charge open until the account has been settled in full! What? interest on charges for over 3 years? I told him that I had a small issue with that, because at the bottom of the letter it states: " We are not entitled to charge you interest on the default sums for the first 28 days after we have given you this notice, However, if the sums is not paid in full by that date, interest will be charged at the rate of 13.3%" I informed the silly sphinktermuscle that this was contradicting what he said. He then mumbled that he was the wrong department and that he would transfer me. Lots of music and then a nice young lady spoke to me. I wont give you her nickname, but slimey snail is a very kind description. I asked her in my sweetest voice if she could be so kind to explain, and she disappeared for a while to the sound of wonderful music. She then came back and said that she did not understand, and would contact 'the client' and she would come back later today. Well, she did, I reckon on the basis that my sweet voice would have been helpful to a peadophile. Then this afternoon I received a call from Blemain's legal stooges (Monarch) They started to explain, but I informed them sweet as ever, that I can only account for 1 legal charge. She agreed, and also could not find the other litigation cost of £ 69.= (No, of course not you little legal twerp!) I am sure they hope that I will go away and keep paying until I die, and then they will try and reposess the house from my widow or children. So, I am up in arms, back on my hind feet, eyes a-blazing. I have dug my little phinktermuscle destroyer out of the cupboard, and mean to do some serious harm. All with the help of the army of Caggers of course. In reality, I am a coward that cannot do it without this sites help and support. Well, if I can swipe these sharks, I promise that I will make 2 extra payments of Blemain's money to the consumer forums. I think £ 500 odd quid will do you lot good. (well, you do keep asking) So, wish me well and wish me luck, you noble kings and queens and goblins and terrors of the financial realm!

We all wish you well of course, DoubleU.

 

Blemain have left me alone for a while, and they probably think that I agree with the fact that it took 18 months to get a DPA print out of them, the fact that it consisted of only 3 pages and that it included so many wrongly charged items. I'm not that stupid, of course!

 

However, until I am secure enough in a job to be able to challenge them in court I won't rock the boat, so to speak!

 

I am looking forward to the result of your entanglement with them...and the best of luck! :D

Debtor gets five-year stay on repossession - 30/10/2009

gavel_onbrown.jpg

 

A debtor has secured a five-year block on repossession in a claims management case against his lender, after using consumer credit law to challenge his secured loan agreement.

 

Peter Bentley, of Bridgend, Cardiff, used the meaning of unfair relationships under Section 140A of the Consumer Credit Act (CCA) 1974 to claim that his loan contract with Blemain Finance was an unfair one.

 

Blemain also agreed to charge no further interest on the £40,000 loan and cut his repayments from £550 to £150 a month. At the High Court in Cardiff Judge Milwyn Jarman also prevented the lender from levying any charges or legal costs "whatsoever."

 

The judge barred Blemain for enforcing repayment via repossession for five years, but even after this period, it can only bring repossession proceedings if there are at least 12 months’ arrears on the new level of payments.

 

Bentley’s lawyers, Consumer Credit Litigation Solicitors (CCLS), successfully argued that Blemain had loaned the money to Bentley irresponsibly and that the agreement took advantage of his desperate situation.

 

CCLS argued that shortcomings in the decision making procedure on granting the loan, such as in the under writing, affordability checks and valuation processes, led to the credit agreement being unfair.

 

Andrew Settle, solicitor for CCLS, said: "The relationship between the parties was an unfair one within the meaning of Section 140A of the CCA 1974. CCLS is utilising a significant number of legal arguments, like those used on behalf of Mr Bentley, in thousands of cases on behalf of our clients."

 

CCLS successfully demanded to have the loan account re written, which is believed to be the first time a loan account has been rewritten under settlement, as a result of the unfair relationships test.

 

Bentley’s case was taken on by claims management company Cartel Client Review. Carl Wright, chief executive of Cartel Client Review, claimed that Blemain made the offer to Bentley in a bid to prevent a judge in a High Court setting a legal precedent against its lending practices.

 

He added: "A legal precedent could have driven a coach and horses through all its loan accounts. The consumer credit rule book is being rewritten as a result of High Court settlements like Blemain Finance v Bentley."

 

Bentley’s financial problems started when his mother died in 2007. He began part-time work to look after his father, who was suffering from Alzheimer’s, and then took out a £40,000 secured loan in February 2007 to alleviate his financial predicament.

 

His caring responsibilities led to a drop in working hours, and therefore a fall in income, and he then fell behind on his repayments. Blemain later chased Bentley for repayments on the loan, which by the time of this case being heard in court, had increased to £47,000.

Nicely found, Sparkie. It's a shame the media didn't report this last October to encourage more people to challenge the dubious practices of Blemain.

Despite there being no payment due, or documents requested - Blemain wrote to me two weeks ago saying they had charged me almost £800 for 'failing to make payments and not supplying documents'.

 

I immediately wrote back and stated that I was unaware of any payments and that they hadn't requested any documents, therefore they had no right to seek legal advice as to why I hadn't complied.

 

I gave them FIVE DAYS to respond, and haven't heard a thing. However, I did remind them that they have an oustanding DPA request from February 2008! Perhaps that was enough to shut them up!

I roo the day I ever got a mortgage with them. They are total shisters!!

I meant financially - they seem to be making increasingly ridiculous demands. Also wanted me to change my SO to a DD which I know they deliberately take after the end of the month so they can levy late payment charges.... I ignored them...

 

Other sub-prime lenders have struggled and gone under - I just hope Blemain do...

Funny you should say that MG!!

 

I have just received my SAR from them today!

 

They will not give me a settlement figure as "this has not been requested" (I guess they mean I haven't paid the £150 fee for a settlement figure!!) but they have included a "full statement of account from inception".

 

Interestingly this shows that when my monthly payment date falls on a weekend instead of taking it on the friday before they take it on the monday after. This then puts my account into arrears!!!

 

This statement does not show any fees have been added for this or any other reasons since inception but I wouldn't be at all surprised if they have a lovely long list elsewhere!!!

 

They also state "Information regarding commission disclosure will not be disclosed as it is our view that thi information does not constitute "personal data" within the meaning of the Data Protection Act 1998. Therefore, you are not entitled to seek disclosure of this under the subject access request"

 

Something to hide do you think?!!

 

Does anyone know of any other request I can make to find out about commission?

 

Thanks

Has anyone any updates with their cases, i'm looking in here after an absence, should I assume Blemain lost/won or are still hanging?

 

In my case it's the latter, is it the same for you?

I am currently dealing with a repossession of my property with Blemain.

 

Both my husband and myself were made redundant in August, we have struggled to keep up with our payments and are 4 payments behind.

 

We have tenants in the property who receive some money from council and pay some of their own rent, however this is very hit and miss.

 

Blemain have contacted my tenants without my consent and advised them to stop making any further payments on the rent which has put them in arrears and thus my mortgage payments in arrears.

 

I was handed over to a repossession company who are extremely rude.

 

I have not even received a letter from Blemain to advise I was being handed over.

 

The company now dealing with it wont provide any court papers or anything.
