    • The Tories election campaign is basically whatever the Daily Mail and Express write about as concerns of the 'British people'.  The latest speech by Sunak about sick note Britain is the latest. Perhaps there needs to be a discussion on the mental health crisis that is stopping a large number of people from working.  When people are having to wait for months for a Mental Health assessment and then a very long time for any therapy treatment, then that is not going to help. The problem with many politicians speeches is that they identify problems, but when it comes to solutions that are going to cost billions, plus take many years to put into place, they shy away from the practical actions that would be required. Instead they will come up with some slight tinkering actions at a cheaper cost, that won't make much difference.  There are probably  hundreds of thousands of disabled people who would like to work, but many employers won't offer them employment as they are not willing to make the reasonable adjustments to make it happen. If the Government pledged to support employers financially with the costs that would be incurred, then I am sure we would see many more disabled people in workplaces.
    • yeah the outstanding balance is correct as I was already in a payment plan with hmrc up till about a year ago when they suddenly stopped taking payments from my bank so me being naive I just left it assuming they would get back in contact to resume payments but instead I got this letter.. I am just glad it won’t show on my credit file as I have only just got it to excellent   
    • I've had a look on their site to see if there is a way to download photos, but haven't found anything. The best thing is to send them a SAR on Monday.  Invest in a 2nd class stamp and get a free Certificate of Posting from the post office. That way they will have to produce the original invoice, a windscreen ticket if it exists, photos, etc.  
    • So today I’ve recieved a letter from J&P after a long time this time with forms attached to respond back about how much I can repay etc and that if I do not respond within 30 days court proceedings will apply   I had wrote to NBD bank to inform them of my new address and to resolve this matter last month, but I haven’t had any confirmation or heard back from them. Should I write to them again?
    • Not consumer credit, so won't show on credit records. Are you 100% sure the Tax Credits payment is correct ? Did you receive an overpayment letter ? If not, there is no immediate need to set up a payment plan. Contact HMRC submitting a subject access request and if there is doubt about the overpayment amount, write to ask HMRC for a breakdown calculation of any overpayment amount. Make a subject access request to HMRC - GOV.UK WWW.GOV.UK Find out how to ask for access to personal data that HMRC holds about you, or someone who has died.

    • Hello,

      On 15/1/24 booked appointment with Big Motoring World (BMW) to view a mini on 17/1/24 at 8pm at their Enfield dealership.  

      Car was dirty and test drive was two circuits of roundabout on entry to the showroom.  Was p/x my car and rushed by sales exec and a manager into buying the mini and a 3yr warranty that night, sale all wrapped up by 10pm.  They strongly advised me taking warranty out on car that age (2017) and confirmed it was honoured at over 500 UK registered garages.

      The next day, 18/1/24 noticed amber engine warning light on dashboard , immediately phoned BMW aftercare team to ask for it to be investigated asap at nearest garage to me. After 15 mins on hold was told only their 5 service centres across the UK can deal with car issues with earliest date for inspection in March ! Said I’m not happy with that given what sales team advised or driving car. Told an amber warning light only advisory so to drive with caution and call back when light goes red.

      I’m not happy to do this, drive the car or with the after care experience (a sign of further stresses to come) so want a refund and to return the car asap.

      Please can you advise what I need to do today to get this done. 
       

      Many thanks

    • We have finally managed to obtain the transcript of this case.

      The judge's reasoning is very useful and will certainly be helpful in any other cases relating to third-party rights where the customer has contracted with the courier company by using a broker.
      This is generally speaking the problem with using PackLink who are domiciled in Spain and very conveniently out of reach of the British justice system.

      Frankly I don't think that is any accident.

      One of the points that the judge made was that the customers contract with the broker specifically refers to the courier – and it is clear that the courier knows that they are acting for a third party. There is no need to name the third party. They just have to be recognisably part of a class of person – such as a sender or a recipient of the parcel.

      Please note that a recent case against UPS failed on exactly the same issue with the judge held that the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 did not apply.

      We will be getting that transcript very soon. We will look at it and we will understand how the judge made such catastrophic mistakes. It was a very poor judgement.
      We will be recommending that people do include this adverse judgement in their bundle so that when they go to county court the judge will see both sides and see the arguments against this adverse judgement.
      Also, we will be to demonstrate to the judge that we are fair-minded and that we don't mind bringing everything to the attention of the judge even if it is against our own interests.
      This is good ethical practice.

      It would be very nice if the parcel delivery companies – including EVRi – practised this kind of thing as well.

Have been looking at the site, and am going to claim back charges from the current account I had as I know I had over 6 charges a month, for going over my overdraft limit with dd/so or cheques which was £30 a time. I also had a charge of £28 a month if I was over the overdraft in that month (ie unarranged borrowing). Can I also claim this back??

Also, sorry for the questions but the account has been defaulted with a balance of over £500, which most of this is charges that have mounted up, can I do much about the default, noticed a S.A.R - (Subject Access Request) request.

Just need a bit of help, think this is brilliant to get own back on bank, I have previously worked for other banks and know how they like to stuff charges into us.

Also not being greedy or anything, but how far back can you make a claim for, I ahve got several accounts that went default in 2000 because of being out of work for over a year which would of started making charges back in 98, can I claim for any of this or just accept I am in debt with all of this.

thank you

Yes you can.

You can tell them you want the default removed. Haven't had to do that one myself, so I can't really help you with that one. I'm sure someone else can! ;)

Also not being greedy or anything, but how far back can you make a claim for
6 years - but please read the FAQs about this!

thank you
You're welcome :)

Sent off for Data Protection request, and was suprised to recieve all my statements for the last 4 years in a week. I went through them and got the shock of my life. I did not realise it had mounted up to £2496. To top it off they had entered a Default against me which they charged me £30 for, and the balance now is £500 overdrawn, looking at the statement within the last two weeks before it was defaulted there was over £500 in charges, what a cheek they have to get snooty with me!!!

I have sent the Preliminary letter with a schedule of charges, and I will not be accepting a partial amount, they kept taking this money off me, which I was in floods of tears at beginning of year with them as they were taking the only money I had going into the account of Tax credits and Child benefit, which at the end of the day is money to help bring up my children.

Even though the account is defaulted they are still adding charges on to this day each month - can they do that???

Thank you for letting me have a moan, and I am really grateful to this website for letting me find out the truth.

Need some help again!!

I have had a really short and to the point letter from Higley, stating not going to pay anything back basically.

I know the next stage is to fill in the N1 claim form and take to court, which I am trying to fill in inbetween sorting kids out, I am stuck with what to do about claiming under SS7 and 13 of the data protection act and extra costs, as they have put a default against me and this is all due to bank charges, and since they defaulted me, I am still getting charged £28 a month, so can not set a proper figure as still mounting up.

Also do not understand about the 8% interest, to put on top of the claim, is this interest on what they have charged me already??

Sending N1 form into court today as finally figured out how to work out the interest, looked at the spreadsheet and maybe an idiot, can not figure out how to fill the details in on it, maybe because my head is mulch with all this working it out.

The one thing I am stuck on is what to do as default still not been removed on my account and do I make a claim for this on N1, as the charges are due to charges, balance £638 which £550 is bank charges the month before they defaulted the account. What do I do??? Need help asap as want to get N1 into court today.

I am having a very stressful time, want to get N1 in but am stuck with the spreadsheet, never been good at filling in spreadsheets and though it maybe simple to a lot of you I have no clue, which is stopping me sending in claim form.

I am owed £2569 and rising due to still charging once a month, but with interest is £2603.92. I do not know when to start charging the interest, is it when you have the first charge, and when do I work out the daily rate from - to, could really do with help asap.

Also noticed there has been another success story a woman in Bath where I live has an article in local paper today who has won after threatening with baliffs, well done whoever you are, I would like to win like everyone else and am very hopeful, I want the money for my children as after all it was Tax Credits and Child Benefit that was taken away from the account.

Thanks

Found out what I was doing wrong spreadsheet wise and have got the N1 claim ready to take into the court first thing on monday morning, I have worked out that the claim will be between £3,000 and £4,000 depending on what I can get awarded for damages as default due to these unlawful charges.

Just was wondering whether natwest always pay up or whether they have fighted and won anyone yet, and do they string it out for long, I would love to get this money in time for christmas, I don't think if I get, I keep thinking when am I going to get as there are so many successess. How many people have won against Natwest in Bath/Bristol area??

Im from Taunton and i have won two cases against NatWest with a possible other one pending. No NatWest haven't gone to court with ANYONE yet, always paid up before court but it differs, sometimes they pay up quick and other times they drag.

Yes. If you use the spreedsheet it will automatically work it out on both the amount claimed and interest for being over drawn.

It's just a waiting game.....

Put in N1 today for £2868, but also claimed for damages due to a default on my account because of the charges, the Bath County Court, think I have to make a seperate claim because the charges are a specified amount and the damages is unspecified, is this right and will this mess up my claim for my money.

Or is there another way around getting default removed.

I recieved the acknowledgement of service last week and the 28 days will be up on 22nd November, how long did it take from ackonwledgement before the ball kept rolling and people got there money, just wondering whether I will get this side of christmas.

I did have a problem with claim form N1 as court stated I could only do for a specified amount and I included asking for damages because they entered a default onto the account due to these charges, when this claim is over can I make a claim for damages and try to get the default removed, or is there another way of going about it.

Thanks for any help, much appreicated.

You don't seem to be too far behind me, in my case Cobbetts got their defence in right on the deadline (which seems to be the norm for them), the I received AQ a couple of days later. I'm just waiting now to see what happens next.

 

As for beeing paid out this side of Xmas your guess is as good as mine, lets hope so though, then we'll both be having a very Merry Xmas!!

Have recieved defence from cobbetts today which was the last day before I could of entered judgement, so really do like to leave things tight don't they! Have said in defence that did not particularise claim properly and could be striked out, is this just more scare tactics?? Also have asked for a case management conference, have not asked for CPR18 but do I just send a letter acknowledging defence and no need to give them more information with another copy of spreadsheet??

But, this is the good bit, also recieved a seperate letter today making me the first offer of £1,500 which I am not going to accept.

So someone please help me with what I need to do next.

This is just a scar tactic of theirs. Its what they do to everyone. You need to write back to them advising that you sent a copy of the Schedule of charges twice to the bank and a copy to the courts. Enclose another copy for them and say that you find their comments to be nothing more than stalling tactics and intimidating.

Have had defence from cobbetts, and recieved an offer of £1,500 which obviously sent a letter not accepting. I have rang cobbetts today to check they had recived the letter, but how useless I was put through to 4 different people, and still could not tell me if they had recieved it, only rang because I know that this is one of their stalling tactics.

I wanted to know how long it takes to recieve AQ after defence from cobbetts and how long the deadline is for AQ just trying to work out the timescale.

You should receive your AQ very soon after the defence and then you've got a couple of weeks to return it. Cobbetts usually return their copy at the end of the deadline so its entirely up to you how quickly you return yours!!
