Hi,

 

i wonder i someone can help me?

 

i am currently fighting FP in court as they are trying to repossess my house. i have filed a basic defence in court under the fraud act, at which the judge nearly choked on his coffee! He has asked for a more partiularised defence to be sent to him explaining all details.

 

i have also used the unfair contract part of the CCA act, section 140a as part of the defence. i have researched this and believe i am legally entitled to, but their legal representive said the loan was not covered by the CCA 1974 act and i couldnt use it.

 

The loan is for £ 80000 and was taken out in Aug 2006. I understand that this section was changed in oct 2007 and automatically included all exisiting unregulated and regulated agreements . This section was recently used in the blenaim and peter bentley case which was widely reported. My case is not so different. i understand that the rest of the loan is not covered by the CCA1974 but would just like conformation that i am right in using the unfair contract part.

 

The EDIT part i have covered in their paperwork at which even their rep conceeded i have a case!

 

Also their default notices are not correct but i am not sure again if this would be covered as the loan is unregulated. Any advice on this i would be grateful.

 

FP have asked for a delay in proceeding for a month as they need to check their paperwork and respond back to me.

I am refusing to pay any monies to them until a judge in a court of law tells me i have a valid contract with them, which on producing thei paperwork i do not think he will be able to make that call.

 

This will be a fight to the death as i will not be backing down.

 

Any one else who has a loan with them might be interested in subject accessing FP and checking wether FP in their internal paperwork have imputed their salaries correctly ( ie not inflated ) and what they have or have not put on their income and expenditure sheet. Im guessing it might not be what they think!!

 

Any advice and imput would be gratefully received.

 

thx willow x

Hi Fretful,

 

do you know if the unfair contacts legislation can be used for First Plus. i have been researching and have found that it seems that if a company is FSA regulated then the legislation can not be used. FP is regulated by them but only for general insurance purposes. All the main banks etc are fully covered by the FSA. Will this make a difference?

If anyone else has an opinion i would be grateful as well.

thx willow x

the contract itself doesnt have to be 100% correct only implied i.e. if it is reasonable to believe at the time it was taken ut that an agreement was in place to repay the debt....

i dont think you will win this one, but that doesnt mean i dont hpe you do!! good luck

But it can not be frudulent. i.e. constructed on the bases of something that is not true with the intention of deception.

Hi,

 

update on this is that First PLus seem to have pulled out of the repossession claim after sight of our defence. They and their solicitors have also not responded to the cpr requests that we sent seperately. Eversheds in their letter to us have asked for a general adjournment with the liberty to restore if they feel like it. Eversheds have also said that our account has been passed onto another solicitor, so it looks like they are not dealing with us anymore.

 

does anyone know why or what we need to do now?

 

First Plus clearly do not want their paperwork in court. they have had nearly 3 months on some of the things in the defence to get their paperwork in order.

 

why go for a general adjournment and then swap solicitors? new solicitors can not change the evidence or their paperwork, or our defence and our paperwork.

 

do i try to get the case struck out? can i do this on a repossession and how would i go about it?

 

how do i get them to comply with the CPR request now? We have asked for the underwriters sheet in both the defence and the cpr letter but it has not been forthcoming.

 

i want to claim back the commission payment that i know will have been paid to the broker but i have no proof yet so it makes it difficult!!

 

part of the defence was under the unfair contract 140 a and b . i am tempted to issue a claim under this for all monies paid on this loan plus 8% interest to force the issue. i do not want this hanging over me.

its not about claiming money back , its about them removing the charge from my house and rendering the contract between us void. would this make them more likely to want to settle out of court?

 

they wont action legal requests and respond to court protocol i cant see what other choice i will have.

 

i just want this nightmare company out of my life!!

 

has anyone any other ideas please??

hi dadofholly,

 

No, they have not falsified any details except on their original paperwork. That is why i suspect they do not want to go into court, as i have that paperwork from our SAR. They just wont respond to our CPR request for all the rest of the information they should have on us which wasnt sent in the SAR ie telephone calls, underwriters sheet etc.

We have sent a cpr letter while the court action was going on, and refered to them in the defence. As they have adjourned the case generally i guess they think they will not provide them.

i have been requesting the telephone calls since October.

These phone calls will back up everything in our defence statement, another reason why they seem unwilling to part with them. They will prove mis representation and unfair contract and mis- selling. I do have a letter from First Plus from last year stating they do have them and they have listened to them. I have sent about 6 letters since requesting transcripts but FP have ignored all of them plus the cpr requests.

 

sorry if i am not making myself clear.

 

Thx willow X

No that clears it up nicley - was just trying to work out if they had stepped over the criminal line or not - sounds like it "may" still be touch and go on that - but depends on what you have on them.

 

Have you reported their failure to provide the details you requested to the Information Commissioner? They are in breach of the Data Protection Act at least. - would also report to the OFT.

no i havnt as yet. they have changed solicitors, and i have received notification that they have transferred the case into their name at the court.

So far the case has been suspended generally on First PLus wishes. They do not seem to want their paperwork in court, to the point of withdrawing from the court case and ignoring cpr requests within that court case. I do not see why they have changed solicitors and we will not change our paperwork or our requests. we also have their paperwork, so they can not issue new documents more favourable to them without us noticing!!

 

does any one have any idea what they are hoping for with this course of action and what i should do next?

hi ,

 

an update on the situation as it stands, would appreciate any advice that anyone can give.

 

FP pulled out of the repossession court case and we have not paid and they have not contacted us for approx 3 years.

 

We sent them a letter before action last year which apart from generic responses they ignored

 

we resent one this year which they ignored again.

 

In desperation we filed a claim for our total payments to be returned

and an amount which we had rebuilt upon credit cards under the mis rep act 1967 and cca unfair contracts section 140 a etc.

 

We have evidence from their internal paperwork that they have increased our monthly income by £1000 per month

by using gross income as our disposable income , they have confirmed this.

 

we were unaware this is what they had done as they kept hold of all our paperwork (bank statements) etc

until the loan was signed sealed and delivered.

 

Again we can prove this via their paperwork.

 

We knew something was wrong and spent a lot of time on the phone at the time

and I advised them I was not happy with the loan and remonstrated with them,

however I was made to feel that I was in the wrong and without our paperwork I could prove nothing.

 

We were also told various things that we now realise amount to mis -representation

which induced us into taking out the contract.

 

We have put all these things in a detailed POC which we have now received a defence to .

 

Our problem is that they have denied everything and said that we were talking to the broker loans.co.uk not them

and that they only had one conversation with us at the end of the loan deal.

 

They take no responsibility for anything apart from issuing the loan amount.

 

However surely they have duty of care towards us.

 

They must be responsible for a least some checks.

 

They were happy to refinance for example a car loan for FORD onto 20 years which only had approx 18 months to run.

 

We did advise them at the time of this but they are now saying that we only ever spoke to the broker.

 

They have now advised us that they intend to resurrect the repossession claim from Feb 2011 as part of their defence.

 

this is a very short version and many other things have gone on

but I wondered if any one can advise me of what I need to do next of has any other advice or help.

 

If any one needs more info than I will do my best to accommodate.

 

thanking in advance .

TBH, I think not. It is the people who advise on repossessions that you really need to encourage to your thread, so this is probably the best place :)

Also, what happened to the repossession case since you last posted in 2011? When you say they "pulled out", what exactly do you mean - did they formally discontinue?
