    • Update. The ASB team have categorically said they want to send a letter to the idiot saying... you are upsetting your neighbor, please come in to talk about this, we need to tell you we have no power to do anything about this though... WTAF?   They also said my only option to stop idiot parking and obstructing our kerb is to park our other car outside idiots property 🤔 because the car is now not obstructing enough to get a ticket and not breaking any law! Even though it's obviously being done to cause annoyance.   Just seems beyond belief!
    • Ok, quick update on this.  Mediation didn't happen - mainly because I missed the deadline for agreeing to the date - I didn't realise the deadline was quite so tight - and I had been away for the weekend and not reading my emails - anyway - although it was bad to not formally respond, it didn't really make too much difference because due to the lack of viable evidence provided by the claimant, mediation would have been pointless.   So I've been waiting to head what court date has been allocated to my case. However, instead I received a "General Directions or Order" letter.    Sorry - I meant to bring it in (to where I'm writing this).....but basically the gist of it was that the claimant had 14 days to respond providing evidence e.g. signed credit agreement etc. - and then I had 14 days after that to respond stating whether I accepted that evidence and whether I wanted to withdraw defence.    The letter was sent around the beginning of the month - therefore their 14 days are more or less up - I haven't heard anything - albeit, I need to factor in postage times - but surely this means my 14 days are not really 14 days....but more a case of the time left before the end of October and when or if I get anything from the court of the claimant with their evidence.   My question really is:    Is it a stupid question - but I cannot really do anything until I receive anything - at the moment, the court won't know what they've sent me (in response to my CCA request) - i.e. the poorly presented application form - meaningless statements - no clear signed credit agreement etc. - so this step is basically the court asking whether there is enough evidence in order to allocate a court date?   I'm assuming I should get a copy of whatever the claimant provides to the court?   Many thanks

    • I am hoping someone can offer me some advice concerning an issue with my former landlord, please. In short, I took possession of a property he was letting out just over ten years ago. Having viewed and been offered the letting, I accepted and paid the deposit plus the first month’s rent and moved in. Meanwhile, the landlord had gone on holiday and it was not until a week or so after I had moved in that I saw him again when he came around to see if we had settled in OK. I told him all was fine and took the opportunity to ask him where the parking space was located as there is only “pay per hour” on street parking outside and a commercial car park approaching half a mile away. He said there was no parking included with the accommodation. Yet the lease which we had each signed clearly stated that the property included the use of a parking space. He told me that this was an error on his part and that there was no parking space included with the property. Having already vacated my previous letting and paid the deposit and the rental advance and moved all my effects into the new letting – in addition to not wanting a major fallout with my new landlord (I also had a wife and three children to consider), I erred on the side of caution and did not press the matter.   However, the kids have all grown and flown and we have been obliged to downsize to a one bedroom apartment (with parking, happily). This was nearly three months ago and I have only yesteray received contact from my former landlord’s lawyer stating I still owe him (the landlord) money. I am waiting to learn the grounds for his claim and have requested a full breakdown of that alleged indebtedness from his lawyer but, having been very good tenants who always paid the rent on time and not only took great care of the old property but also did a lot of unpaid work improving it over the course of our ten year residence, I am quite annoyed to be treated so meanly. Regardless of whether or not it transpires that I do, unwittingly, owe this man money I am wondering whether or not I might have a counter claim against him for the false representation of his lease and perhaps even be compensated for the ten years I spent paying for on street parking as well as putting up with the daily (often hourly) inconvenience of that.   If someone could advise me, I would be very grateful.   Thank you.

I received letters from Lowells a few months ago chasing a debt of £334.56 from Redcats Finance. I sent numerous proove it letters which firstly they didn't respond to.

 

They have now responded with a letter saying that Lowells purchased the debt from Redcats Finance. The letter then goes on to say they have included statements as per my request. There iis then a load of photocopies of statements included.

 

I didn't request statements in my proove it letter!

 

How should I respond?

Lowlifes think that sending you a stack of statements proves you owe this alleged debt!:lol:

 

Does any of it look familiar? Or is it something a ten year old could knock with their crayons?

Words, horse and flogging come to mind !!!!

 

It must just have been an experiment, to see whether they could try to resolve any issues via these forums.

 

I suspect because it did not were here, it won't be used again.

 

They also contributed to other forums, who were more receptive, but have not posted again.


We could do with some help from you.

If you are going on maternity leave, whereby your pay will be a small amount compared to your usual salary, is there a way of writing to the creditors explaining this and asking for reduced monthly payments for a period?

What does this part of letter mean:

 

If interestautolinker.com autolinking image or other charges are being added to the account, we would be grateful if you would freeze these so our debt does not increase.

 

Is that the companies that operate the interest percentages!

Ahh. Don't worry, that's a glitch

That should have linked to another page if clicked but it don't work anymore so just delete it from the letter as it's not needed

E-mailed all my catalogues last night explaining pregnancy and offering £10 a month. Had one response from Next which was:

 

Thank you for your email regarding the payment proposals on your Next Directory Account.

 

Unfortunately the proposals of £10.00 per month are not acceptable and the minimum we can accept is £41.00 per month. Should you be able to a commit to this amount then please advise in order to set up the Reduced Payment Arrangement on your account. Please be aware that if we set an arrangement on your account it will be noted on your Credit Reference file ,and no further orders will be allowed during the term of the arrangement.

If that's their attitude and they are going to give you a mark on your credit report for being honest and not just ceasing payments, tell them to stuff it, it's £10 and that's your final offer. Just send them the tenner and keep up payments, you have nothing to lose.

Received a response from Fashion world:

 

We note your comments, however, we cannot accept your offer of £10.00 every

28 days.

 

In light of your circumstances, we will accept reduced payments at £44.00

every 28 days.

 

Your account will be placed on a payment arrangement, as a temporary

measure to help you whilst you are experiencing financial difficulties once

you make your first payment. Payment must be made by credit/debit card on

the telephone number below.

 

and a response from Crazy Clearance:

 

Thank you for your recent email.

 

We note your comments, however, we cannot accept your offer of £10.00 every

28 days.

 

In light of your circumstances, we will accept reduced payments at £19.00

every 28 days.

They must work out the payments based on the outstanding balance. But these amounts aren't much different to my current monthly payments, my current with Fashion World is £46 a month and this month with Crazy Clearance is £19.00 a month

 

Also they don't confirm that they will stop interest being added.

Only The Brilliant Gift Shop have agreed to my letter.

 

Jacamo said: We note your comments, however, we cannot accept your offer of £10.00 every

In light of your circumstances, we will accept reduced payments at £52.00

every 28 days.

 

Viva la Diva have said: We note your comments, however, we cannot accept your offer of £10.00 every

28 days.

every 28 days.

 

These payments are ok at the moment, but not when only receiving £125 Stat Maternity Pay.

 

Am wondering if should dispute these payments now, or pay these for next 6 months, then explain that I can literally only afford £10 a month per creditor when receiving £125 a week!

I e-mailed the various catalogues saying that they have only offered me payments that are approx £4 - £7 less than what I am already paying. They came back and said that's the offer that's available at the moment!

 

Should I go along with this until I'm actually on maternity leave or dispute?

Hi

I think that while you can maintain payments, do so. You have forewarned them that your income will drop and if they refuse to help when the time comes, I think you would have good grounds for complaint

Thank you. That's what I was thinking, then write to them again in 5/6 months time explaining my income has dropped and a new agreement needs to be reached.

Have agreed payments with most creditors so far, for six months, that takes me to August, by which point I will be on maternity pay and unable to meet these payments for nine months until I return to work part time, I will write to them again about a month before the six months is up.
