    • Point out that the small claims process is very simple and straightforward. If there is a hearing then it is very likely to be a telephone hearing and as long as one knows the steps then there is no reason to be unconfident about it.
    • We should be able to obtain opinion regarding expected life from the original plumber as he is no longer active in the trade, so no issue with future relations with the merchant..   I will talk to my neighbor and explain what he  needs to do, clearly it will be up to him to proceed with the claim via the suggested route   Thank you for your help.

    • I must withdraw from the course as Student Finance England will not fund my second degree which is an exception degree. For I been told of an outstanding debt that I had no idea existed, which was sold to a third party from my original degree. SFE told me that there no outstanding debt when doing my application but now informed me that they sold half my loan to a private company that put a block on my account.  I tried explaining that I never earn over the threshold so no payment was due, which sfe agreed but they say they can do nothing about the block on my account by Erudio.  I rang Erudio to explain but they said will only remove if I fully pay even though I am under no legal obligation as I never earn the threshold, plus I cannot afford 8070 pounds.  I spent hours telephoning looking for a solution with no luck, I contacted Student loans England, Student Finance England, the University credit and finance but no luck in finding a solution. But I really see a solution being found as I don't want to liable for course fees as I can't afford them without SFE loan.  What makes it worse is the university stringed me along even though I phoned them on 28/10/2020 and raised this as a concern that finance not been received and she assured me the cut off point was 18/11/2020, I received my decision on 21/11/2020 i immediately withdrew from the course.  But when I rang the university to explain that these are circumstances out of my control,  and its not like I don't want to continue the degree there no finance she said well we charge you 2250 pounds because you two days over the cut off point. I told look at system notes I already telephone with concern and now they sending me invoices, totally stressed made appointment with Student union adviser I find it amazing they try to take advantage of me in this way.  If anyone has any advice please I would very much appreciate it.       Just add I rang erudio whom informed me the debt was Stature barred in 2010 and they bought loan in 2015, and they only remove if I pay it in full which I cannot afford, this reason I have drop out.  On my SLC loan every if up to date and there no outstanding balance there deferment till 2005 and then gap in 2018 it says   Annual Unmatched customers/oversees/Not eligible to repay statement.  I did move address erudion had my old address but slc had my new address.  Anyway the lady said that since I did not fill in my deferment regardless if I can prove I never earn over the threshold that the debt had been statue bared,  If anyone can tell how I handle the university whom going after for a whole term payment just cos I was two days over the tutor said she allow my withdrawal from the 18th but I don't know how the university will act.

    • I came across this discussion recently and just wanted to give my experience of A Shade Greener that may help others regarding their boiler finance agreement.
       
      We had a 10yr  finance contract for a boiler fitted July 2015.
       
      After a summer of discontent with ASG I discovered that if you have paid HALF the agreement or more you can legally return the boiler to them at no cost to yourself. I've just returned mine the feeling is liberating.
       
      It all started mid summer during lockdown when they refused to service our boiler because we didn't have a loft ladder or flooring installed despite the fact AS installed the boiler. and had previosuly serviced it without issue for 4yrs. After consulting with an independent installer I was informed that if this was the case then ASG had breached building regulations,  this was duly reported to Gas Safe to investigate and even then ASG refused to accept blame and repeatedly said it was my problem. Anyway Gas Safe found them in breach of building regs and a compromise was reached.
       
      A month later and ASG attended to service our boiler but in the process left the boiler unusuable as it kept losing pressure not to mention they had damaged the filling loop in the process which they said was my responsibilty not theres and would charge me to repair, so generous of them! Soon after reporting the fault I got a letter stating it was time we arranged a powerflush on our heating system which they make you do after 5 years even though there's nothing in the contract that states this. Coincidence?
       
      After a few heated exchanges with ASG (pardon the pun) I decided to pull the plug and cancel our agreement.
       
      The boiler was removed and replaced by a reputable installer,  and the old boiler was returned to ASG thus ending our contract with them. What's mad is I saved in excess of £1000 in the long run and got a new boiler with a brand new 12yr warranty. 
       
      You only have to look at TrustPilot to get an idea of what this company is like.

    • Dazza a few months ago I discovered a good friend of mine who had ten debts with cards and catalogues which he was slavishly paying off at detriment to his own family quality of life, and I mean hardship, not just absence of second holidays or flat screen TV's.
       
      I wrote to all his creditors asking for supporting documents and not one could provide any material that would allow them to enforce the debt.
       
      As a result he stopped paying and they have been unable to do anything, one even admitted it was unenforceable.
       
      If circumstances have got to the point where you are finding it unmanageable you must ask yourself why you feel the need to pay.  I guarantee you that these companies have built bad debt into their business model and no one over there is losing any sleep over your debt to them!  They will see you as a victim and cash cow and they will be reluctant to discuss final offers, only ways to keep you paying with threats of court action or seizing your assets if you have any.
       
      They are not your friends and you owe them no loyalty or moral duty, that must remain only for yourself and your family.
       
      If it was me I would send them all a CCA request.   I would bet that not one will provide the correct response and you can quite legally stop paying them until such time as they do provide a response.   Even when they do you should check back here as they mostly send dodgy photo copies or generic rubbish that has no connection with your supposed debt.
       
      The money you are paying them should, as far as you are able, be put to a savings account for yourself and as a means of paying of one of these fleecers should they ever manage to get to to the point of a successful court judgement.  After six years they will not be able to start court action and that money will then become yours.
       
      They will of course pursue you for the funds and pass your file around various departments of their business and out to third parties.
       
      Your response is that you should treat it as a hobby.  I have numerous files of correspondence each faithfully organised showing the various letters from different DCA;s , solicitors etc with a mix of threats, inducements and offers.   It is like my stamp collection and I show it to anyone who is interested!

Hi,

This is my first post here so apologies if I'm going over old ground.

I'm trying to sort out the mess my brother has landed himself in. He took out a loan with Sainsbury's Bank back in November 04. He was told he had to have payment protection insurance on this loan. This, including interest added just over £9K to the original loan. He has since defaulted on the loan and it's in the hands of a DCA now. My question is, if this ppi should have been optional and he was told it was compulsory then was it missold? If so, how does this affect the defaulted loan?

Hope someone can help.

Thanks in advance.

Tashmann,

 

Yes it was mis-sold in my opinion.

 

If you have a copy of the original loan agreement, remove all personal details including barcodes and post it up for us to have a look.

 

Chances are if he has been paying it since 2004, will be quite a bit to claim back.

 

So post the agreement and I will help you do your calculations.

Hi DJ,

 

Thanks for the prompt reply. Apparently the loan was applied for over the phone. No application form was ever sent and the only evidence there is is the credit agreement. The insurance section has no signature just a machine printed name in the appropriate box.

 

The problem I have is that the loan is now in the hands of a debt collection agency who are pushing for the full amount, including the protection insurance. Because I believe my brother was missold this ppi I don't see that the debt collection agency have any right to demand payment on that part of the defaulted loan. I'm not sure how he stands legally on this. If the ppi was missold and it can be proved as such then the credit agreement cannot be correct and therefore unenforcible in its current form.

I assume the agreement you refer to is in your brothers possession and dates back to 2004 is this correct,not a recent agreement supplied by Sainsburys??????????????Get the PPI claim in,if it was sold on the basis no PPI no loan,you should be able to claim this back.....claim it back from Sainsbury and advise the DCA you have a dispute with PPI with the original creditor and until this is resolved, you cannot proceed any further..................FS

Hi, to follow up on this thread. RBS were the original holders of my brother's loan. They have now made a settlement offer but are saying they will contact the company they sold the debt to and will forward the amount agreed to them. Are RBS allowed to do this? If so what are the ramifications? Can this be considered a full and final payment? What happens if the original company RBS sold the debt on to has sold it on, won't that just line the pockets of the original DCA and leave my brother in the same position he's in at the moment? I'm tempted to tell my brother not to accept this offer on the terms RBS are offering as I don't think it will resolve the outstanding debt. Can anybody help please?

The rules of set off will be determined by the type of assignment.

 

If the debt was sold on and all rights etc were transferred then they cannot use the right of set off.

 

If the DCA are just acting on behalf of the OC then sadly they can set off.

 

You also need to make sure the offer figure is correct before you accept anything....have you done your own calculations to work out what is due back?
