    • Here's something I'm hoping to clarify before I get in trouble for it:   There is a street close to where I live that was transformed into a temporary Pedestrian and Cycle Zone due to a school that's there. I know I can't enter it during those times, but can I be fined for having my car parked on that street while the zone is active? So far I have only heard one interpretation, from my neighbour, who said you can have your car parked there and you can exit the zone while it is operational, oddly enough, but before I take her word for it I want to get some more opinions on the matter.   For reference, here is what the Council's own website states: "It is an offence to enter or drive in an active school Street without a valid school street permit." (emphasis mine) Would this prove my neighbour right or can they still find a different interpretation to it that would carry the risk of a fine if I park my car there?   The sign for the zone is very similar to the image attached below, only different operating times.   Edit: to clarify, there are permits you can apply for if you actually live on that street, but I'm just outside that area. Also, there are no other parking restriction on the road that would apply.  
    • good i can see where you got that from  pers i'd put back, suitable adapted the line:   3.Throughout this period XXX only ever served estimated bills which were grossly over estimated with values unrelated to actual use. There was and still remains an unresolved dispute with XXX which was never resolved prior to the assignment of the alleged debt.
    • Hi Mr S,   Read other threads here posted over the last year or so.   We pretty much advise the same thing - ignore demands from the gym, their admin company, any DCA they use and any legal firm they use.   No need to engage with the gym or admin company to discuss or argue your wish to cancel - it'll get you nowhere.   If you want to leave the gym now, just give a month's written notice then cancel the DD m,andate .   If you want to cancel from October 2021, confirm this to the gym in writing early October, allow the final DD to be taken in October, then cancel the DD mandate.   You'll see from other threads that no action is taken to claim money and gym m/ships do not affect your credit records.
    • Update on the situation:   Following the run in with the police he has actually gone to the police station himself to question what he was told and was told there is no issue with him idling or moving the car around the car park, so the police officers who told him that were wrong.   As a side note, he knows who it is that's reporting him. Seems to be a bit of a feud between them, but the clarification he got from the police should at least stop them coming around every time a report is made.   Thank you to everyone who replied to this question!
    • I have had another good look around but still struggled to find any templates. I did find a defence on a thread that I have adapted below. I would greatly appreciate some input before I file it. Again, many thanks in advance.   Defence   1. I the Defendant contends that the particulars of claim are vague and generic in nature. The Defendant accordingly sets out its case below and relies on CPR r 16.5 (3) in relation to any particular allegation to which a specific response has not been made.   2. It is admitted that I have had a supply and service agreement with Co-operative Energy in the past. During the period, Co-operative Energy actively blocked me from hanging to a cheaper tariff or switching provider as there was an outstanding balance on the account.   3. Throughout this period Co-operative Energy served estimated bills. This is shown in the one copy of a bill that the claimant has been able to provide. The claimant has given no details as to the full breakdown of their claim and what dates it relates to, so I am unable to defend specifically until the claimant can particularise and quantify its pleadings.   4. Pursuant to OFGEM code of back billing rules the alleged charges are now over 12 months old and relate to charges which have not been billed correctly by Co-operative Energy and are therefore prevented from charging.   5. The claimant does not have access to the agreement nor was the Assignor required to retain a copy. Therefore their claim is unsubstantiated.   Pursuant to the civil procedure rules Practice Direction 16 (7.3) Where a claim is based upon a written agreement.   1) a copy of the contract or documents constituting the agreement,  the original(s) should be available at the hearing along with a complete breakdown of how the charges accrued by date and amount.   With the court’s permission the Claimant is put to strict proof to: -   a) show and disclose how the Defendant has entered into an agreement. b) show and disclose how the Claimant has reached the amount claimed. c) show how the Claimant has the legal right, either under statute or equity to issue a claim.   6. As per Civil Procedure Rule 16.5 (4) it is expected that the Claimant prove the allegation that the money is owed.   7. It is therefore denied that the defendant is indebted to the claimant as alleged or at all.

    • Hi @BankFodder
      Sorry for only updating you now, but after your guidance with submitting the claim it was pretty straight forward and I didn't want to unnecessarily waste your time. Especially with this guide you wrote here, so many thanks for that
      So I issued the claim on day 15 and they requested more time to respond.
      They took until the last day to respond and denied the claim, unsurprisingly saying my contract was with Packlink and not with them.
       
      I opted for mediation, and it played out very similarly to other people's experiences.
       
      In the first call I outlined my case, and I referred to the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 as the reason to why I do in fact have a contract with them. 
       
      In the second call the mediator came back with an offer of the full amount of the phone and postage £146.93, but not the court costs. I said I was not willing to accept this and the mediator came across as a bit irritated that I would not accept this and said I should be flexible. I insisted that the law was on my side and I was willing to take them to court. The mediator went back to Hermes with what I said.
       
      In the third call the mediator said that they would offer the full amount. However, he said that Hermes still thought that I should have taken the case against Packlink instead, and that they would try to recover the court costs themselves from Packlink.
       
      To be fair to them, if Packlink wasn't based in Spain I would've made the claim against them instead. But since they are overseas and the law lets me take action against Hermes directly, it's the best way of trying to recover the money.
       
      So this is a great win. Thank you so much for your help and all of the resources available on this site. It has helped me so much especially as someone who does not know anything about making money claims.
       
      Many thanks, stay safe and have a good Christmas!

Hello All

 

I had posted this in 2 other threads by mistake, oopps!

 

 

I have checked my credit report and it states the my HFC account is settled, but the last statement has an outstanding balance of over £1600!!???

 

I have asked experian to check and the have confirmed the account being shown as settled, but they are checking with HFC.

 

I check at the start of the year and the account was show active with regular payments.

 

But it is strange!!!

 

Any Thoughts on this?

 

Cheers

Hi All,

 

Had the following response off experian:

 

Thank you for your emails, which we received on 18 and 21 May 2010.

 

RE: HFC Bank plc account started 29/10/07.

 

- I can confirm that this HFC Bank account is marked as settled on 16/12/08 and shows a £0 balance.

 

- The credit limit shown is purely historical information. Please be assured that anyone searching your report will see that as the account is settled, you no longer have access to this credit facility and therefore this account has no adverse effect on your credit rating.

 

- Please accept my sincere apologies for any confusion caused by my colleague's previous correspondence as this account should not have been queried with HFC Bank plc as it is correctly recorded.

 

- We keep settled accounts on your credit report for six years from the date of settlement.

 

Where would i stand if i stop payments to HFC??

 

Cheers

Have you only ever had the one account with HFC?

 

I wonder if they've misallocated a payment from someone else to your account resulting in the account being marked as settled? If so, then this's bound to crop up again at some point.

 

Maybe worth your while sending them a SAR to see what their records show and then take things from there.

surely the answer lies in your hfc agreement that you have?

 

didn't refinance did you and thats the old loan and the new one has not been registered because of a change of a/c number?

 

sadly hfc are the pits when it comes to looking after customers....i'm shocked to see this mistook though..

do the a/c numbers match betweenthe letter you have and the experian report?

 

dx

please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...

I am going to ask for subject access request for a number of reasons, this one and PPI.

I did have a old account but that was settled in 2007, not in 2008.

 

DX - Yes HFC are the pits, If experian has been told the account is settled for some reason, surley HFc cant put a default against something that is settled?

 

Thanks for the replys

Sounds like they've possibly recorded the old account as settled late and as such I'd get it corrected. Does it show as settled in 2008 with Equifax and CallCredit as well?

 

You're correct that a default can't be registered after an account is settled but as you've got a second account with them then they can record a default in the event if fail to maintain payment.

 

My only experience of HFC is when my dad borrowed some money from them years ago and had he not kept all his paperwork including proof of all the payments he'd made he'd have ended up paying back significantly more than he had borrowed.

 

I remember during one call he made to them where he mentioned how much he'd paid back and the person asked how he knew that to which he replied that he'd kept all of payment receipts. Oh was the reply. He got it sorted in the end but it took a while and I'll never touch them.

I have checked with credit check and it is the same, settled dec 2008. It showing the same account number as most recent payments made.

 

Now question is:

1. Do i stop paying them and say as far as the CRA state the account has been settled?

2. And also all the payments made from the settlement date until present i am due back?

3. If i stop paying them they cant default against me as that account is being shown as settled?

 

Cheers for your thoughts.

 

(interesting one!!)

I'd check your HFC paperwork to see if the account you're paying has the same reference as the one showing as settled.

 

My gut feeling is that there may be a reporting error here and while it's tempting to take advantage of this it may come back to haunt you leaving you with a potentially complicated dispute to sort out.
